Ask the Recruiter: The Best Advice I Ever Received (Video)

"The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese."

"Don't squat with your spurs on."

"When you need to borrow money, borrow from a pessimist. He won't expect it back."

Good advice. Bad advice. Scratch-your-head advice. Think how often in a day you receive any kind of tip, from the funny, fortune cookie-like ones above to sage life lessons from your mother to coworkers pointing out how you can do your job better.

Potential job candidates reach out to our recruiters when they're interested in a job, but the really good candidates ask their recruiters for advice on how not only they can do a job, but do it the best -  and become better employees or consultants.

Since our recruiters are in the business of talking to people all day long, they know when to listen during all those conversations. From our recruiters' mentors, peers and family members, the best advice our recruiters have ever received is shared in the video below.
