Investing in Professional Development

Many of us enter the world of recruitment professionals because we possess certain skills or personality traits. There really isn’t a specified path for the work that we do. However, as professionals, we must continue to learn and hone our skills. From personal and professional development to networking, how have you learned the skills necessary to be successful? What was your path to the profession? What resources do you rely on to further your professional development? We would love to hear your story.

Educating Each Other
