There are many recruitment agencies that hires freelance recruiter or home-based recruitment consultant to help them on their recruitment activities and there are quite a fair number of the recruitment consultants are going towards this trend of employment. Why recruitment agencies wants to go for such engagement and why recruitment consultants are moving towards this trend will not be covered here as our focus today will only be to identify the possible reasons behind the failures of the home-based recruitment consultant.
Part-Time Effort – When I share with people on this simple logic,the focus and time by a home-based recruitment consultant usually are very limited, within a week itself, they could be putting only a few hours on this job. My challenge to them is, if you are not able to put in full time effort, which will be 40-60 hours of efforts per week, how are you able to get full time results? Most of the people were dumb folded after I said that logic….. The logic is; Full-Time effort usually equates full time results, part-time effort is not equates to part-time results, it equates to NO results….If one still believes that you will need minimum effort to generate very good results, they could be living in their own dream land. The fact is this, there is NO free lunch, you have to get your “xxx” out there and get the things done.
Too Much Distraction – When you are at home, how many other things are waiting for you to do? List them down, you will be surprise the total list is so many that your job as a recruitment consultant at home will seems so unimportant. Even if you wanted to get the job done, there are too many distractions from your family members, food, bed and even Facebook and other social media.
Lack of Motivation – It will be very lonely when you are working at home, and even the most motivated person will feel down some days, you will need to have an environment where externally it forces you to be motivated willingly or unwillingly, yes it will be great to be motivated willingly, however being motivated unwillingly by external force is better than not motivated at all, isn’t it? You will have to set the environment that is able to help you get things done, else the environment will get the things done for you; at your expenses.
