Working for the Weekend
Well, it’s Friday again and almost time to get started on my weekend. Naturally, my first thought is... who do I have to reach this weekend for work? Being a recruiter we all understand that there are times we have to make calls to candidates on our “off hours”… especially those that travel extensively, are passive candidates, hard to reach, or those who simply refuse to talk to you during business hours. As recruiters, are we accustomed and expected to work more than other professions? How does this “overtime” affect the standard 40 hour work week OR do we even have a standard work week? Does your family life/free time suffer from your profession?
