Danny Cahill of Hobson Associates is the only industry guru who runs a search firm every day. Over the past
several years, Danny has shared his recruiting and business development knowledge with Bullhorn readers to
help them navigate the ups and downs of the industry and the economy.
As recruiters look ahead to an improved business environment in 2010, Bullhorn wanted to bring you the
best nuggets of Danny's recruiting wisdom from his recent papers. Bullhorn has prepared a crash course in
business development, sourcing wisdom and sales best practices from Danny's insights. We hope that it will
provide some inspiration as you get ready to come out of the gate strong and set your goals for success in
the year ahead..
To quote Danny from earlier this year, "As a recruiter, you are only one phone call away from changing your
day, but your activities must have structure to succeed." To add the structure that will lead to success,
consider the following best practices:
- Spend more time on business development and find niches unaffected by the economy.
- Track your metrics closely and learn from them.
- Remember that the best tool for persuasion is still the phone, not email.
- Leverage the power of referrals.
- Use social networks to your advantage.
