It's a coming of age tale….

You’ve got to love the close ration…

Posted by sweens on July 10, 2009

I love how a good ‘close ration’ – the ration between the positions you present candidates on and the ones you actually win – for this industry is around thirty percent. When I think about that, it is demoralizing to think that two thirds of the positions I recruit will never close.

Do candidates know this? If they do not I think they should be aware that the close ratio for any given firm is not likely what people would expect.

I guess I will just have to keep doing what I can to increase that ration. Come on fourty percent!!
