Is Recruitment something you want to know/understand better? If so, this could be the perfect article for you to read.

Here is something that all successful recruiters know: Recruiting is a lot like matchmaking. You must pair the person with the position in a way that makes both your client and your candidate happy. Otherwise, you are not getting the job done.

This means you are basically making two sales at the same time. To pull that off, you need equal parts intelligence and emotional intelligence. That is why an outgoing sociable person with a skill for making compelling arguments will find themselves innately prepared for this role.

This is a role that has variety which includes anything from meeting with candidates and following up on references to strategizing with your team and extending offers. But also, at the same time, you have got more positions to fill. If you are someone who looks at a mountain of tasks and thinks, “I’ve got time for that and maybe a couple of other things, too,” chances are you would thrive as a recruiter.

But when it comes to recruiting, you need to lead people. That means helping people put forward the best version of themselves and their skill sets and matching them to positions that you are tasked with filling……. then trying do that again and again and again.

That is when the whole leadership thing comes into play. Gifted leaders are inherently more capable of driving people toward a common goal.

Think of it this way. If your candidate or your client cannot get behind your plan, then you’re not effectively doing your job. But if you are someone people turn to for advice, then you’re probably the kind of person they would trust to get them the right job.

What is the most rewarding part about recruiting beyond the satisfaction of helping people better their lives and advance their careers?

Recruiters are incentivised based on job performance. That means the more successful you are, the more money you can make and the further you can grow in your career.

If this kind of success lights a fire under you, then you are sure to be excited by a competitive recruiting career.

The range of successful recruiters includes people with a lot of different educational backgrounds

So, if you are an entrepreneurial, charismatic leader, there is a great chance that you can find your place in recruiting.
