Trying to do too many things

Multitasking is often the bane of recruiters’ lives! Avoid situations where you are trying to complete three or four things at the same time.  You’ll lack focus and the quality of your work will inevitably suffer.  Good time managers are often disciplined and to an extent selfish with their time – get into the habit of knowing how and when to say “no” to additional tasks when you are already focused on something.
