Improving your phone skills

Life as a recruiter means spending a lot of time on the phone. It’s how you create your client list, find your candidates and where you put your sales pitch to the test. Though, talking on the phone can be quite daunting to someone just starting out.

When making your first batch of calls, there are ways to prepare and manage your nerves.

Be loud and clear.

If you are loud and clear, this channels confidence. Even if you are nervous, the person on the other end of the phone will not hear those nerves and they will believe in what you are saying. Especially if you believe in yourself.

They can’t see you.

The joy of a phone call is that it’s one dimensional. The person you’re talking to can’t see you, you can’t see them, and you definitely don’t have to worry about a handshake.

It takes practice.

When making cold calls and speaking to someone new, businesses will likely throw you curveballs by either saying they don’t use recruiters or don’t like recruiters. This makes it harder for you to sell your service, but you learn how to deal with this over time and from learning from others around you.

Be prepared.

Before a call, it is vital to do your research and be prepared. Show that you are interested by taking the time to research and ask the right questions. Having an understanding beforehand will also help with your sales pitch.
