There is great opportunity for growth within recruitment.

Knowing your market will be invaluable for you and will help you along the way to making placements and becoming a top biller should you use this knowledge in the right way; hence being able to reap the rewards of receiving commission. This is an excellent incentive that many work places do not offer and another great reason to join the recruitment industry.
In recruitment, you get to speak to different clients and candidates through different networks like email and social media. Remember you don’t have to have the “gift of the gab” to be a recruiter, the most important part is the ability to listen. By listening to what clients and candidates want you will make the best decisions for everyone involved.
Recruitment is not just a job, it’s a career. I’ve met so many people from so many different backgrounds while working in the recruitment world and it’s amazing to see so much talent come together for one common goal; to find the right jobs for the right people.
