When I was in my late teens, I got a job at a major recruitment company.
And there was something interesting happening at the time:
In every single industry, the client was the king. If you got the client, you
could get the candidates.
Except one industry: Information technology.
If you were even half-good at this, you could command your own rate.
But then it switched, everyone caught on…
And all of a sudden, heaps of people jumped on this trend, until the
supply outstripped the demand… and it was no longer such a valuable
My point comes back to the last email: there’s value in doing what
everyone thinks is crazy… because then you’re ahead of the curve.
You see the trend before it becomes a trend.
