Dear Recruiter, I am a gainfully employed sales representative and for the first time in a long time, I'm going to start selectively searching for a new opportunity. I've started to look on my own, but I have not had much traction and I was told to work with a specialized recruiter. To be honest, I'm not sure what to expect or what type of questions I should be asking. Help!

How many times have you been told, "Don't sweat the small stuff" only to think back and wish that you had taken a couple more minutes to sweat small stuff? Do you often find yourself saying, "I can't believe I just did that??" or "I'm such an idiot" because of a small detail that you either did not notice or chose to ignore?A salesperson that forgets meetings, makes spelling and grammar mistakes and has a hard time staying organized will not find success in sales.
