A Career as an Executive Recruiter

Executive recruiting is one of the best, most rewarding businesses in the world! It is a complex, sophisticated, intellectually challenging multi-step sale that you too can master. You can be part of this career without the need to relocate, experience very little travel (except the occasional cruise or trip to Hawaii!) and will be able to enjoy a great deal of professional satisfaction. On top of this, you will have the opportunity to take control of your career, build a business that you can be proud of and experience uncapped earning potential.

Why recruiting, and why now?

An astounding 79% of companies realize that there is a gap in talent between the individuals they have on their current team and the impact players they need to reach their goals. Because of this, companies will look to upgrade their staff and the need for executive recruiting services will become even more important. The unemployment rate for college graduates is well below 4% and at the lowest level in many years. Now is a tremendous time to enter the search and recruiting industry.

What does a “day in the life of a recruiter at NaviTrust look like?

We spend half of our day speaking with hiring managers and “influencers; selling our services, arranging interviews with impact players and building relationships with companies and individuals across the country and the world.

The second half of the day is spent developing relationships with impact players and headhunting candidates. Our value as a search firm is to identify, present, and deliver candidates to our clients that they cant find on their own. How do we do it? We headhunt, network, cold-call and develop relationships.
