As a recruiter, the way you communicate can make or break you. It can keep you employed and keep your candidates loyal to you.
I’m sure you have all heard the saying, “It’s not what you say. It’s how you say it.” It’s wise to follow this advice, but the most successful recruiters need to know what to say and how to say it. Consequently, to be a truly effective oral communicator, it’s imperative to be a great listener. For the purpose of this article, I’m going to focus on oral communication.
Knowing what to say and how to say it means you’re listening, asking questions, and prepared for questions, concerns, and/or objections.
