Recruiting Specialist

If you're thinking of becoming a recruiting specialist, you should have excellent interpersonal skills and be great at building a rapport with others, in other words, you should be a "people person." It's a good field to get into in terms of job availability as The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that jobs for human resources specialists, including recruitment specialists, will see a growth of 8 percent over the next decade.

What is a Recruiting Specialist?

A recruiting specialist is someone who is in charge of finding and hiring people to fill vacant employment positions. Some people who hold this position work for the human resources department of a large company or organization, and are tasked with finding new employees for said company. Others work for a recruitment agency, and work with a variety of companies, finding people to fill employment gaps when they arise.

What Does a Recruiting Specialist Do?

There are number of tasks that a recruitment specialist has to carry out on a day to day basis. A big part of the job is to find potential employees, which is usually done through placing ads, but in some cases recruitment consultants might actively hunt out talented people, for instance by visiting colleges or via websites such as LinkedIn. Another large part of the job is interviewing prospective employees, checking references, and deciding which prospective employees would be a good fit for the vacancy. They also need to make sure they're fully up to date with any and all local hiring laws or regulations.

What Level of Education Does a Recruiting Specialist Need?

Most employers will require a recruiting specialist to hold a 4-year bachelors degree, preferably in a subject such as human resources or business. In addition, they may require previous experience either as a recruiter, or in a related field, such as another human resources position.

As well as these formal qualifications, a successful applicant will generally need to be computer literate, highly organized, and have excellent written and verbal communication skills.
