Colleges earn a good name when a high percentage of their graduates land and keep good jobs that are related to the nature of their degree. Most college students pursue a degree in the hope it will enhance their income potential. They make their college choice based on data that proves the likability of that income enhancement. For that reason many colleges hire recruiters. They are in contact with governmental organizations and the business world and are aware of all job openings in the area of the colleges. Often they are also aware of vacancies in other cities where graduates can commute to and vacancies that require resettlement. Students who are almost done with school go to their college recruiter for advice. Employers go to a college recruiter to find the right man for the job.

A college recruiter has to have good assessment skills and organizational skills. He has to be proficient using computer software. He keeps a current database of both candidates and employers. Excellent people skills are undeniably to the advantage of the college recruiter. Communication skills are very important. A college recruiter works from an office that is located at the college and students can either walk in or make an appointment to come and talk to him. Because of his close relationship with the community he is often a guest at locally organized job fairs and works closely with the administration of job boards. A college degree is usually required to become a college recruiter.

Occasionally someone who has worked for the college for many years in clerical positions and has proven skills that are helpful as a college recruiter has a chance to be promoted to college recruiter. Overall however, the right four year degree for the job is appreciated. An MBA degree is often preferred. Most college recruiter’s start working for a college long before the college hires them for that position. They are usually very familiar with the college they work for because of their lengthy relationship with the school. Many graduated from that college in the past and even worked there during their college years. For them, the whole college thing has become a lifestyle rather than just a job.



Successful college recruiters earn decent money and are high in demand. Often competing colleges will try to convince them to come and work for them and that is when wages become really appealing. A college board notices when a college recruiter is very efficient and will be very generous to its successful recruiter. The number of good college recruiter jobs is rather limited and often qualified and aspiring recruiters work in other positions for many years before they get the job of college recruiter. Do not get disappointed when that happens to you. Consider all your other work experience as coming closer to the job position that you really want to fulfill. Successful college recruiters are not only wanted by other colleges.

Often the business world notices the exceptional performance of a college recruiter in the community and recognizes the potential of that recruiter. It frequently happens that a corporation manages to convince a local college recruiter to come and work as head of the Human Resources department. A recruiter who starts working for a corporation stays in contact with his successor at the college. From now on the corporation will have access to the best of the best college graduates in the region.
