You’re only 24, don’t worry about being pigeonholed! Working for executive search firm is a great opportunity to build your network, just get in touch with clients and candidates, be useful and build relationship. After you have relationship you can talk to them about opportunities. Also, your company will happily place you to their clients as it will strengthen their relationship. I spent first two years of my career as a tech headhunter with executive search firm (back then half of my clients and candidates were my age) :) That was the best network I’ve ever built, 15 years later I’m still in touch with many of my candidates and clients.

VP HR1 thank you so much! That makes a lot of sense and definitely helps put my fears at ease. I’ll continue to focus on my work and build those relationships!

Start recruiting at a consulting firm. Pivot from there as internal candidate

I haven’t heard a lot of success stories going that route. I am 24 and afraid I pigeonholed myself into recruiting for my whole career.
