Be 100% honest with yourself and make sure that your world view matches the world view of any the clients you take on. If you know you are really good in a certain aspect of recruiting but your clients wants you to do recruiting another way, sometimes it;s better to say no to the client. for example, if in your heart you know you are more of a high colume technical recruiter, but you are presented an opportuntiy to do healthcare recruiting, it may be a good idea to decline the opportunity.

With my 15 years of experience, I would say friendliness, ability to relate to a broad spectrum of people, and enthusiasm. To be a great recruiter, you have to love it! That shows to all you deal with.

Truly, its about relationship building...working one on one, customize their search and produce quality hires. Freeing up their time is important so they can get down to the business of hiring and training. Once a position is filled we basically are out of a contract, however, if you make the transition easy, and help the client understand that they would have paid exorbitant fees for a Corporate Recruiter, they seem to want to come back.
