It's challenging and intense to be a headhunter. Our typical day includes searching for suitable candidates, providing related consulting service for clients, interviewing candidates and reaching out for new clients. People often misunderstand our job as HR, but the truth is that being a successful headhunter means you're a superb sales person. The most difficult part of the job is to fulfill clients' demand meanwhile balance with reality. On the other hand, the sense of achievement of closing a case is beyond any compensation that comes along. We had mentor system in the company. Mentors provide guidance and reviews of our performance, but there's no standard SOP of our job. Being flexible and able to adapt changes are very important of being a headhunter.
The job sharpened my problem-solving and negotiation skills. Also, I'm trained to work under intense pressure and to deliver work efficiently.
