Reason to become an executive recruiter #19: You can become a manager and a leader
In my last post, I talked about how the career of executive recruiter, by its very nature, provides opportunities for advancement. You don’t have to wait for your boss to give you a good review, a raise, or a more important position. In essence, you decide how successful you want to be. At the same time, however, those “old school” ways of advancing are also possible in the world of executive recruiter.
You will find various types of organizational structures at executive recruiting firms. At our firm, we tend to have a fairly flat organization. But we also have team leaders, managers, mentors, and other official and unofficial leadership opportunities. If you have the ability, there is plenty of opportunity to help others be successful while earning more and doing more.
The world of recruiting is exceptionally meritocratic: at most firms, people with drive and ability are able to prove themselves without anyone holding them back. The best way to become a leader is simply to be a leader. You will then naturally find yourself in increasingly important positions of leadership.
With respect to our firm, we are growing at a very rapid pace. Right now is a great time to get in on the “ground floor.” Those who prove themselves now will reap big rewards in the future.
If the opportunity to prove yourself and become a leader and manager sounds appealing, then executive recruiter may be the perfect job for you!
