The Olympics are over, (or did you even know there were on?) I remember growing up watching Nadia Comancei reach the perfect 10, Mark Spitz setting records for swimming and watching the swoosh of Dorothy Hamill’s hair. We looked to these idols, not only in sports, but in every day and every way because they were great professionals.
I work with recruiters every day, and each day, I learn that each recruiter has developed their career in a different way; either starting out as recruiters, sales people or human resources and then they “made it up” along the way. Some had mentors, some were just thrown into the deep end of the pool, others maybe they took a course or maybe they just had a natural talent for it and it just clicked like Michael Phelps.
