Free Recruitment Sales Training Courses for Search Consultants

Is recruitment a sales profession? You’d better believe it is! After all, recruiting is the only sales profession where there are people on both ends of the sale. That means potentially twice the number of objections.

After all, a toaster never complains at the last minute that it doesn’t want to be sold. But a candidate can say at the last minute that they don’t want to be placed. And when that happens, it can be particularly discouraging, even for the most battle-tested of search consultants.

So, just like in other sales professions, some recruiters are better at sales than other recruiters. In other words, they’re better salespeople in terms of what must be done on a recruiting desk on a daily basis. After all, recruiting involves the power of persuasion, especially in terms of candidates. That power is needed in at least three situations:

  1. The recruiter must convince a candidate to consider their client’s employment opportunity.
  2. After convincing the candidate to consider the opportunity, the recruiter must now convince them to join the interviewing and hiring process.
  3. After convince the candidate to both consider the opportunity and join the interviewing and hiring process, the recruiter may have to convince the candidate to accept their client’s offer of employment.

There are, of course, sales considerations in the client side, as well. This is the case when a recruiter or search consultant is attempting to convince a prospective client to become an actual client. Then the recruiter must convince their new client to give them a job order. And then convince them to consider the candidates that they present for that job order.

The persuading (and the sales) never ends!

It might go without saying, but we’re going to say it, anyway: those recruiters who are better at sales are usually more successful than those recruiters who are not. This is why recruitment sales training courses are so important. They help recruiters become better salespeople, which, ironically, helps them become better recruiters. Crazy how it works, huh?

The good news is that Top Echelon offers recruitment sales training courses as part of its Recruiter Coaching Series of free webinars. These courses possess the important dual characteristics of being both online and free.

“Inspired Recruiting and Selling” by Scott Wintrip

Some interactions with clients and candidates almost seem to be divinely inspired, while others feel like you’re trudging through mud and muck? Getting nowhere fast. What’s the cause of these very different scenarios?

“Inspired Recruiting and Selling,” an almost effortless interaction with people, always has two components: trust and compulsion. Without both of these, recruiting becomes a more difficult task.

During this free recruiter training webinar, Scott Wintrip of the Wintrip Consulting Group will share the best methods to effectively connect with people and compel them to want to work with you. Those who watch this video will:

  • Learn how to create a compulsion for clients and candidates to buy in to what they offer more quickly.
  • Discover ways to increase trust and develop better relationships.
  • Learn about the global movement called Lean Recruiting, a system for manufacturing and distributing more talent with less effort.
