I have kept a schedule for myself to do 5 cold calls every day.so between 11:00 AM and 12:00 I spend in cold calling clients in the engineering sector and making a pitch.
Its kind of challenging to call up and hear the phrase that we aren't recruiting and then continue on to the next call. Very early days yet. Hope to continue this for the next month.
Some of my clients actually cant believe when I tell them that some of my other clients are recruiting. There is a definite slowdown but more than the slowdown the market perceptions have taken a big beating.
