WHAT’S RECRUITING ALL ABOUT?
Being a recruiter is not a college major or something little kids dream of becoming one day. This job can be hard. You have amazing days where you find great candidates great jobs and make a lot of money doing so. You have days when your candidate no shows to an interview with a client or, worse, show up but with their dog in tow (yes, we all have those stories!) and at least they make for entertainment at parties and social gatherings!
WHY WORK WITH AJILON?
Ajilon values their employees mentoring and wants everyone to be able to say “#myjobsmorefun”. They provide a fun and challenging work environment and when you’re looking for a recruiting job, it’s important to choose a firm that sets you up for a bright future. The recruiting industry is full of strong opportunities for growth and one day, you may become a senior partner or even run your own firm. The decisions you make now will help pave the path for an amazing career. That’s why it’s important to choose a firm that values — and invests — in you.
