My chances?

 
#1 My chances?

John

Hi,

I'm soon to be graduating from durham uni in accountancy and finance and am probably going to get a 2:2.

I've wanted to go into recruitment for a while now and am wondering roughly what my chances are of getting into a good well paying firm or if I will have a lot of trouble getting employment.

Thanks for the help,

John

Cheeky to John (#1)

You don't need a degree for recruitment!

Head-Hunter response to And another thing (#3)

John,

You are completely misunderstanding the process. You are supposed to try to get a proper job first. When that does not work and you have completely run out of alternatives, you reluctantly fall into recruitment. Joking apart, most of the better people did something else first. Without some real life experience, there is not a lot of constructive advice you can give to your candidates. This is likely to mean that you move straight into a better level of job. If you can spell your own name and have a degree, you will easily get a recruitment job somewhere. If you are serious, the traditional route is a couple of years at a big "machinelike" company followed by a move to something more specialised. Just tell them that you are very hard working, never say die attitude, determined and want to make money. Your basic salary will be rubbish but if you climb the ladder you can do OK in the longer run.

seriously though. recruitment is a lot easier to get into than to get out of (unless you get fired as most people do) so do it only as a last resort.
