Industry: Recruitment, Employment Services

  • I worked for excelHR for 3 years and it was my first position in an office after graduating university. They provide ample training and coaching on recruitment strategies and sales tactics to guide a new hire how to manage their desk of existing clients and new candidates. I was also encouraged to prospect for new business and did receive some fillable orders through the process. My first 2 years were amazing with high success in placements, client/candidate activity and numerous social events to reward us for our hard work and long hours. The staffing industry does require a consultant to put in some extra time per week in order to fill that order before the competition. It also comes down to time management as well and takes a full year to become well emersed in the role with lots of multi-tasking. In my third year I decided to pursue other opportunities in HR and management was VERY supportive in my case. I explained that I studied HR and would like to move away from sales but still work to transition my desk until end of fiscal.
    It is a wonderful company to work with and they hire fantastic employees, many that i see regularily after resigning a couple years ago. I recommend anyone to be a consultant if they have a passion for teamwork, client/candidate service, high energy for selling candidate's expertise and those who can multitask to the extreme. Even though there is a high component of recruiting, those wishing to pursue HR it is not the place for you. Personality and drive to succeed are main qualities as a consultant and the rest of the training and skills you will learn along the way. Some are there for years and others learn rewarding skills to send them on their way.
    excelHR is a leader in the industry for many reasons and they proved it to me as an employee, then a client when I hired a few temporary resources and now as a candidate working for one of their clients. excelHR is truely a full service firm in this regard and my main advice to anyone who first starts as a consultant is manage your time, be organized and have quality in your calls and placements to ensure success in the year. It seems difficult and alot to manage at first but if done correctly, it will create a path of longevity for years to come.
