Why is recruitment one of the most stressed industries?

National Stress Awareness month has arrived and it’s time we talk about the problems that affect all of us and what we can do to stop feeling strained.

Stress plagues the recruitment industry, but why is that?

Many in the industry resort to self-deprecating coping methods that only wear them down more. The uncertainty of markets make for much more work pressure says the Chief Executive of recruitment company Major Players, Greg Orme, while ompetitive and time-sensitive jobs result in highly unsociable hours and psychological damage. So how do you prevent stress from setting in? How can you reclaim your life from the grips of depressive work schemes?
