The Five Things That Make A Successful Headhunter

jorg Stegemann

In more 10 years in the staffing industry in various operational, managerial, and corporate roles and in different countries, I have interviewed, coached, and trained hundreds of recruitment consultants from all over the world. Though local differences must be taken into consideration, the characteristics that make you a top performer in Salt Lake City also work in Singapore or in Paris. Based on what I saw, heard, and learned, here is my quintessential list of the 5+1 habits that make a top-performer in any economic cycle or market:

  1. Work close to the money: We work in an environment where priorities can change many times during the day. One call from a customer saying the job is filled or one email giving us a new job order can change how we spend our time from one second to the other. “Close to the money” is probably the best indicator that will tell you if you are currently working on a) the right things and b) in the right order. Constantly ask yourself, “What am I doing right now and will this action get me a bonus?” Think in a binary way: When the answer is “yes,” this means “yes”; “no” is “no”; and “maybe, not sure” is “no.” (more…)
