Why you should join Robert Walters California
We'll be honest with you; it is not all about lunches and happy hours.
Recruiting takes a certain skill set to be successful. It’s an industry that is entirely what you make of it. While it requires excellent communication skills, a strong work ethic and thick skin, it’s rewarding, both professionally and financially.
If you need further convincing, consider these reasons:
- It’s rewarding. We help people find work or grow their businesses. That in itself is personally satisfying. But it’s more than that; you can make great money if you’re ready to hustle.
- It’s competitive. Recruiting is not a “show up late, leave early” kind of job. You must be ready to bring your A game every day.
- You meet a lot of great people. If you consider yourself a people person, then you’re going to enjoy recruitment. Especially in the San Francisco Bay Area where there is so much innovation, disruption, and progress.
