I have over 5 years of recruitment experience. I applied to the program because I felt I needed to strengthen my business development skills. Since starting the program, I've signed multiple new client agreements and I am currently busy onboarding two other recruiters into my company. In addition to this, the webinar speakers have been an excellent addition to the certification program. The entire program has been insightful and useful.
