Administrative skills are vital as corporate processes and systems are often inefficient or important. A corporate recruiter needs to be flexible to deal with changing job requirements and budget changes. He or she must have a strong ability to partner with Hiring Managers. Ability to build confidence and strong relationships with hiring managers is essential. Corporate recruiters are often called in to give justification as to why a particular candidate is to be hired or fired if an employee increases company expenses. In such a situation, a corporate recruiter can provide critical market data to support the decision to hire another person.
Above all tenacity, the ability to deal with high workloads and a can-do attitude can certainly give the corporate recruiter an added edge.
Graduation from high school is the minimum qualification. Though not always required, Fortune 500 companies typically prefer candidates who have a degree in Human Resources, Labor Relations, or a related field. Post graduate qualifications are preferable.
