Like most jobs and careers, the world of recruitment can be an exciting one. You get to meet very diverse people on a day to day basis, work with colleagues who are experts on their fields, and the best part, giving people jobs!
But like many great jobs, it can also cause headaches and disappointments (and potentially a few heartbreaks for losing that one great candidate) from time to time. If you want to succeed at being a recruiter, knowing the ins and outs early on are always vital, both for the company you are working for and your career development as a recruiter.
Gerry Crispin from CareerXroads offers some advice to recruiters on how to follow up with applicants, and how to work with human resources.
