Working to the utmost of your ability is extremely important to your success as a recruiter; however, allowing yourself a break once in a while is equally as important. One thing that every recruiter needs to remember is that when you work hard, you have to play hard. We can vouch for this! I’ve met tons of people who are terrified about taking a summer vacation because they assume that there is no way their business can survive without them. Read More…
