5 Reasons Why Being a Recruiter Absolutely Rocks!

Oct 01, 2020

Recruiting is perhaps one of the most exciting and impactful jobs in the corporate world – and also one of the most challenging (but of course!). How challenging you ask? Well, stats show that 80% of people who enter this industry, fail in the first 2 years, leave, and are never return again.

It’s a job that keeps you constantly on your toes as you engage in head-to-head competition to attract the best talent in the market and you have approx 3 months to know if you’ve been beaten to the competition or not. The impact of recruiting is two-fold: you are in a position to place a candidate in his dream job and you can change the direction and the success of a corporation with a single great hire in a key job. 

So if you’re on the threshold of embarking on a career, here are some reasons why recruiting should be at least one of your top choices. And if you’re already a recruiter, here are some reasons why you enjoy going to work everyday 🙂 

You hold the key to someone’s success: Other than getting married, buying a new house or winning the lottery, few things can be as life changing as landing your dream job. And this is where a recruiter plays a key role. Even though you can’t hire everyone, you can identify the strengths of a candidate through interaction and put them in suitable roles. Even when a candidate doesn’t land a job, the recruiter can help shape his/her future by giving feedback on the areas of development. 

Highest business impact– Recruiting ranks highest in bottom-line business impact on revenue and profit of any talent management function. Products are launched faster and projects are executed successfully because the right person has been hired for the job. Ineffective hiring can be a major roadblock to the success of the business. A single new hire can change the name of the game with one innovation or by launching a new product worth millions. A skilled recruiter can tweak the existic recruiting process to hire high-value diverse candidates and innovators. 

You can meet lots of interesting people– As a recruiter, you are not glued to your computer screen through it all. You get to meet tons of interesting people. From CEOs to freshers, you get to meet people from all walks of life. As a recruiter, you don’t just meet associates and contacts. You make friends and enjoy close interactions with people across the board and enjoy a wealth of experiences which many other professionals don’t. Everyday is an adventure and you don’t know whom you’re going to meet today. 

No two days are the same– You bid adieu to monotony when you choose HR as a career. This is an ideal job for you if you get bored with repetitive tasks easily. Other than the opportunity for meaningful interactions with new people everyday, recruiting is a challenging environment that will constantly keep you on your toes. The race to attract the top talent and close positions can be cut-throat and that is what makes this industry a fast-paced and exciting one. You have deadlines to meet, targets to fulfill and are constantly in the game to hire the best person for the job while other companies are trying to beat you to the game. 

Being a recruiter is incredibly rewarding– And we don’t mean just financially (though that too!).You have the power to shape someone’s future and support the growth story of an organization. Placing a person in his/her dream job is work well done and can be incredibly satisfying. You hold a pivotal position in the company as hiring the right team is perhaps the single most important step to creating a successful brand. 

Technology is playing an all-pervasive role in recruiting and automation is helping manage repetitive tasks so that recruiters can focus on the more human aspects of the job (like face to face interactions and striking a chord with candidates). Pod.ai , a recruitment platform, can help you meet your hiring numbers through automation of campus placements, data management and analytics.
