Recruitment consultancy is still a relatively young industry in the grand scheme of things. It is now a popular profession for people who like to keep busy, achieve results and work with a range of people. If you get into recruitment and really enjoy it, there are also plenty of options for career progression. You just need to make sure you work for the right agency.
When you go for your interview, you should ask about career progression and the options on offer. This will show you are keen and make you stick in people’s minds, as they will know and remember you as the keen, ambitious person. If you see a promotion come up, apply for it. There won’t be set career progression models in most agencies, you will just be able to work your way up as you get more knowledgeable. Make sure employers know you are keen, ambitious and ready to take on those new challenges.
