The Recruiter is in charge of finding talent and bringing them on board. To find such talent, recruiters must actively look for qualified candidates, whether online on different job boards or offline at diverse places like job conferences, industry meetups, or university campuses. Once they’ve created a talent pool, they carefully vet applicants for skill sets that would work best with the company culture and budget.
Essential parts of a Recruiter’s job description:
- Recruiters know how and where best to find, attract, and acquire top talent for your business
- A Recruiter has to be a real people person as they will spend most of their time interacting with existing and potential candidates, as well as regularly attending networking events
- Recruiters further need to have a sales mentality and way of working, as they have to be able to persuade passive candidates to apply for a certain position
- A Recruiter is generally hired by medium to large companies, as in smaller startups, the tasks of a Recruiter are generally performed by the internal hiring manager for a specific position
