Recruitment is a Drug, and You’re Addicted
Let’s stop beating around the bush – we don’t mince our words. Recruitment is a drug.
Welcome to Sales-Addicts Anonymous. We’re here to share what exactly it is that keeps us coming back for more each and every day.
Struggling to pinpoint it? Time to get it out in the open.
The Thrill of Closing the Deal
The highly competitive sales floor soon weeds out the weak, sensitive or unambitious. Those that make the cut are in for the long haul!
So, what is it about it that keeps us coming back for more? What’s that secret ingredient?
It didn’t take us long to come up with an answer on this one. It’s the rush of the sale. That high just can’t be beaten!
Every Drug has a Comedown
There is a dark side to the thrill of the deal.
You get tantalising close to closing a candidate, only to have the deal ripped from your fingers. You start feeling the pressure from your clients, all the good coffee runs out…
It gets to the point where you’d give anything for a deal. Your right arm, eternal servitude, your first born…
Best be heading to the pub.
The Rush After the Low
Coming out of that deal-less pit is a rush like no other. Closing that first candidate after going cold turkey for so long makes it all worth it.
We’ll let you in on our worst-kept secret – we quite literally feed off the feeling.
Some Possible Side Effects
Some of the most common side effects include:
- Caring more about recruitment than your relationship
- Drinking more nights a week than not
- Talking too much
But, who pays attention to possible side effect warnings anyway?
Giving Up Isn’t an Option
The thought of returning to a mundane, typical 9-5 brings tears to our eyes. An everyday admin role with no thrill, no rush, no perks? No thanks.
Anything else just pales in comparison! We’ll pass on mediocrity, if it’s all the same to you.
How to Wean Yourself Off
You probably won’t find this high anywhere else. But, we can’t blame you for trying. The key is to think in extremes.
Skydiving is an option. Bull running could be another worthy habit to satisfy your cravings.
Is it a Good High?
How many addictions come with perks? Company incentives, free booze, bonuses… The list goes on.
Plus – this addiction won’t make you poor. In fact, it will do quite the opposite!
Think we’ve made our point on this one.
You Keep Coming Back for More
If you keep returning for more and more – you’re an addict. The hedonism of sales has got you in its clutches, but who’s saying that’s a bad thing?
We wouldn’t have it any other way.
You’re Looking for a Change of Company, Not Career
Itching for a change? It may not be recruitment itself that’s the problem.
If your current role isn’t giving you what you’re looking for, and you need to find those thrills again, it’s time a new one.
