Recruitment is typically a profession most people find themselves in because they have certain skills or personality traits. We tend to enter the profession without ever really knowing much about it. Reflecting on your career, what advice would you give your past self when you were first starting out? What are some of the biggest lessons you have learned that would benefit other recruitment professionals? Learning from each other is a key benefit of membership. We encourage you to share your advice.
