Problem #2 (Frustration)—Fall-offs, counter-offers, slumps, slow-moving decision makers, slow-paying clients, etc., etc. You could write a book about the things that recruiters face on a daily basis. Once all of that stress reaches a certain point, it evolves into frustration. Whatever happened to loving what you do for a living? Sometimes, it’s easy to lose sight of that.
Contracting Solution—As I chronicled in a previous blog post, there are typically no fall-offs, counter-offers, or slow-moving decision makers with contract placements. Consequently, there are far fewer reasons to experience frustration—at any stage of the process. And there’s just no feeling quite like the one you get when a contract placement goes off without a hitch. It’s like hitting a tennis ball on the “sweet spot” of your racket. Contracting can help you find your recruiting “sweet spot.”
