Ha so do I!!
I can’t tell you how many clients say that to me, and how many in fact ring up and say first up “hello my name is Steve, I hate recruiters and I have never had any success with them….but I have been given your name and told you are different…”
That’s what I love. I prefer to be called a people placer or networker from hell or even Queen of the creative in Melbourne!! ANYTHIING but a recruiter.
I’ve been working in the industry for over 20 years as a photographer, then in new business in Advertising and Graphic Design and designing portfolios and consulting with creatives. I’ve also taught at university level for years and sit on course advisory and a graduate employment boards.
I can talk with a mouthful of marbles under water; go to the opening of an envelope and love people.
I worked in London in the late 80s early 90s as a door bitch in a London nightclub in Chelsea that taught me a lot about human nature, and about being able to judge a personality very quickly.
These skill sets, set me apart from others.
Getting into a Night club/ finding a job in the Creative industry, just saying…
