Closing for Cool Kids

How do recruiters close candidates and clients in a world where unemployment among professionals is at 2.2% and emojis pass for rebuttals to objections!

So you have more sendouts? Check that box! More jobs? Natch! But the industry is dangerously close to a 20% fall out rate and there are more turndowns than ever! Worse, fees are dropping while the demand for our services is at an all-time high! What the hell is going on?

Training is nonexistent in most firms. It is woefully outdated in the rest! Of course, you can still “take it away” and “reduce to absurdities”, but do you know when? Have you upgraded your scripts or addressed the changing values and communication techniques of your audiences?

Don’t worry, Danny’s got your back. He’ll update what is timeless and show you original methods and word tracks. His firm’s fall out rate this year? Their best year ever… 4.7%! Just saying!
