"I very quickly realised that this was not an industry for me. The interview process left me with a bitter taste in my mouth and an aversion to the profession in general. It was interesting to find that many friends have had similar experiences with interviews and while working as candidates for various recruitment agencies. In conclusion, it seems that recruiters are up there with Tax Collectors and Estate Agents amongst the most vilified professions."
Last year I wrote about why booking too far in advance can be dangerous for your business, and this concept of margin so eloquently captures what I had recognized had been my problem: I was so booked up with clients that I wasn’t leaving any margin for error, growth, planning, or reflection.
