a day in the life of a staffing consultant

being a staffing consultant

Though I don’t always know where the day will take me, I know it will be comprised of sales and recruiting activities. Every day I problem-solve and work through obstacles to help candidates and clients find the right job fit.

For me, wins come in many different forms. From telling someone who has been unemployed that they have secured a job, to scoring an appointment with a prospect I thought would never agree to meet with me, to winning a client I have been calling on for months.
