I enjoy working in the recruiting industry because it gives me the opportunity to really use my sales and interpersonal skills to create a business opportunity for myself and my company that I wouldn’t have at many other types of sales jobs. I really enjoy talking to different people everyday, and the challenge vs. reward factor of the business is outstanding.
