Recently, we were very pleasantly surprised to discover that Forbes named 4 Corner to their list of the Top 250 Recruiting Firms in America.
It’s a surprisingly well-kept secret that many of the “awards” out there are actually pay-for-play. It often takes paying a large “application fee” or commitment of significant advertising dollars to be named to a list or receive recognition by a popular publication. Even worse, the numbers are almost always self-reported, which leads to…well… let’s just say occasionally overstated numbers and results.
But not this one!
We didn’t see this coming (nor did we even realize such a list existed), but we are thrilled to receive the recognition. We would very much like too thank the individuals who rated us among the best in the business, and we’ll continue working to prove that we’re worthy of your vote!
We get it. Believe me, we do. All day, every day, we speak with prospective candidates and current contractors about their likes and dislikes. We know that many of you aren’t in an ideal situation, and we are eager to help facilitate your next great career move. Of course we are – it’s what we do!
When the time comes to leave your current employer, please remember to always do it the right way. Give proper notice. Offer to help with the transition, and then actually do it. Exit with grace, and express gratitude to your soon-to-be former employer. The manner in which you resign will leave a lasting impression, so be sure to make it a positive one.
Remember – it’s a big world, but it’s a round one, too.
