What’s wrong with being a recruiter?

Good money much less work, know the industry and people.

My friend is one and I did his return this year. He turned over 108k in his 3rd year doing it. He’s very good at recruiting so the money’s there. Plus you don’t ever probably have to work over 55 hours. The only risk here is that your pay is tied to performance, they’re mainly commission based.

It’s actually a very hard job - constantly hustling to get clients and send them people. They may not be working in an office all day but they are forever meeting people for coffee lunch dinner and that time adds up. My friend did this after leaving big 4 and ended up leaving this after a couple of years bec it took a toll on them. That being said if you are really good at it and have a good network you can make pretty good money.
