Are you a recruiter that is losing their mind because you can’t stop spinning around and around in circles?

Are you oftentimes losing focus in your profession?

Are you having a hard time getting the results you hope to see?

We have all been there and the key to success is keeping focus while knowing your genius! This is a recruiters ultimate guide to keeping a straight head on your shoulders and to figure out the scrambles happening within your mind.

So let’s figure out how to solve these problems you have been struggling with by straightening out your mind. Mental health is so important and is something everyone should spend time in their day to put positive effort towards. In the recruiting realm, we need to take a deeper dive into mental health on the level of focus. Having direct focus is so much better and easier for you to function. Why is this so important? Because in recruiting there are many bells and whistles that pull you in every direction at all times, almost forcing you to be a hyper multi-tasker.

I am a tech recruiter that operates two high-tech, high-growth recruiting companies. I am always being pulled in a million directions so I get how difficult it can be to set your priorities and objectives; not doing everything all at one time. One thing that helps me is creating microtasks and macrotasks on two separate sticky notes.

Microtasks: objectives to accomplish short term (within a month)

Macrotasks: objectives to accomplish long term (within the year)

Where do you start? How do you nail down what is most important on your list of things to do? Forget about all the tasks running through your head for a second and think about what you are good at now? What can you accomplish today? Take what your gut is telling you to do, and do it. Be patient. You’re not going to be a success story overnight so don’t beat yourself up for being slower than you had hoped. In fact, in everything that you do, think about the positives rather than the negatives. If you didn’t finish filling a role you’d been working on that day, give yourself a pat on the back for all the effort you put into it. Don’t sweat the small stuff, focus, and jump in with the basics. You have to crawl before you walk, walk before you jog, jog before you run, and run before you sprint so don’t get frustrated. Only you know what your genius is. Keep going, don’t change direction, and ultimately you will succeed. The recruiting world does have its pain points but through these, we learn how to make improvements and be better. Don’t give up, get organized- you can do it!
