Recruiters hold a responsible position in the corporate world and are responsible for locating, researching, interviewing, and hiring employees. They need to reach students from high school or colleges or experienced professionals from the corporate world. The job is of immense responsibility because a recruiter needs to screen the candidates and test their ability to fit in a particular job role. If a recruited candidate is not performing as per the expectations of the company, then it can be said that that the recruiter failed to judge the candidates' caliber or willingness to perform. If recruiter jobs attract you as a career option then you need to know certain important aspects of this job which are discussed in the article.

There are very few recruiters who actually start their career as recruiters. One mostly begins at entry level as an HR executive where he works as an assistant to the senior HR or department head. You can easily find entry level recruiter jobs as most companies have an in-house HR department. You can also work with a recruitment firm who hire people on behalf of various other companies. Recruiters are expected to know about the company, its policies, employee benefits, management hierarchy and other programs.

Another vital thing involved in the recruiter jobs is traveling. Traveling to other cities to visit job fairs and college campuses for conducting interviews are common for recruiters.



Once you have completed your MBA degree in HR or any other related degree, you can start hunting for recruiter jobs by sending out your resumes to different companies. A degree or course in business studies, psychology, economics, marketing, industrial relations, and public relations can also provide suitable knowledge and skills for recruiter jobs. After you have sent your resume and haven’t received any confirmation, follow up within couple of days by calling up the human resources department.

Another smart move is social networking to make good contacts in the industry. You can register on popular social networking websites and update your profile giving complete details about your education and future goals. These days many recruitment agents and companies contact candidates through these sites, so make sure your profile gives a clear picture about your qualification and the kind of person you are. There should be no grammar errors or typos in your profile.

You can also contact the placement office of your college and gather some leads and advice. Placement cells at colleges are often contacted by companies looking for qualified and self-motivated individuals. Hence, they can play a key role in helping you find recruiter jobs. You can also use the internet for searching the best available jobs in the field. There are several job related web sites that feature openings of all kinds. Register yourself at such web sites, upload your resume and contact suitable employers who have placed advertisements. There are several job categories in most job portals that give you easy searching options. Search for recruiter jobs by location, salary, industry, etc.

The recruiter jobs are well paying especially as you move up in the hierarchy. Experience in recruiting qualified professionals is always an advantage for career advancement. One can also open his own job consultancy after a few years.
