What does a Recruitment Consultant do?

Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a...job offer?

If you're a natural networker who loves to connect people with opportunities, consider a career as a recruitment consultant. You'll help companies fill vital roles and help qualified people find temporary work or even their dream jobs. It's part sales, part marketing, and part good old-fashioned pavement pounding, as you search for the right people for the right jobs.

En route to recruit

Recruitment consultants, sometimes known as "headhunters," often work with mid-sized or large companies to search for potential employees, screen job candidates, and hire personnel. Some of the jobs you will be attempting to fill might be highly specialized.

As a recruiter, it will be your job to identify the skills and background required for career success, and match candidates who fit with those requirements. You might conduct background checks, interview prospective candidates, complete data entry, or help negotiate salaries and terms of employment.

To become a qualified and successful recruiter, you should consider earning a bachelor's degree in human resources or business administration. Recruitment is an interdisciplinary field that draws from a broad range of skills, so you might find it helpful to study labor management, finance, marketing, and communications.

To get your foot in the door at a staffing firm or recruitment agency, you may find it helpful to complete an internship or apprenticeship in the field.

The fruits of your search

Recruitment consultants work in a variety of environments, ranging from independent contracting to large staffing firms with branches all over the world. You might even work in-house in the Human Resources department at a large corporation or university, or for a job-search website such as Monster, CareerBuilder, or HotJobs.

As long as there are jobs to be filled, and people who want to fill them, there will be a need for recruitment consultants. But you won't just help fit people into positions - you'll maintain relationships with individual clients and companies, and may work closely with human resource departments to keep abreast of a company's employment needs as it grows, shifts gears, or downsizes.

Salaries vary depending upon the type of company you work for, but in addition to annual salary, recruiters often receive commission when they place job-seekers in permanent jobs.
