1. What is the name of your profession (position)? Recruiter, Recruitment Consultant, Recruitment Specialist. 2. What is your job and what are your responsibilities? I select personnel for client companies in accordance with their requirements. At the first stage, we receive from the partner company a general description of the position for which it is necessary to find a person (often this is a short list of requirements and functions in electronic form). Next comes a thorough clarification of what kind of specialist is needed, what skills he should have, what experience should already be behind him, what personal qualities are important. Discussion of the position can take place in various forms - by e-mail, by phone, and ideally in a personal meeting with the client. Considerable information is also provided by a visit to the customer company itself - having seen what conditions are there and what kind of people work, it is easier to understand the position profile. The next step is to start searching. Depending on the position, different methods are used - searching for a resume in the database of a recruitment agency, searching for a resume on the Internet, posting a vacancy on various resources, using recommendations and direct search (i.e. "headhunting"). Then the stage of initial telephone interviews takes place - from a short telephone conversation, I find out how this person fits the key requirements of the position. If everything is fine, and the person is interested, I invite him for an interview. After conducting a sufficient number of interviews and selecting the best candidates, I present their resume to the client with my detailed comments. Most often, interviews go further already with the participation of clients - stages are usually from 1 to 5. Finally, one of the candidates is offered a job. Of course, I have described the process very briefly and in the ideal case. In fact, there are a lot of subtleties and non-standard situations in my work. For example, when a candidate suddenly refuses an already made offer, to which he has been going for so long. 3. What education is required to get your position? Higher - the direction is the most diverse. In the general case - psychological or in the field of personnel management. But it will be great if financial specialists are also selected by a recruiter with a financial education. 4. Describe your working day. My day usually starts with making a plan for the day, checking mail, news. Then the day is divided into "pieces" dedicated to a particular project. Lots of calls, lots of meetings…. 5. How comfortable are your working conditions (all day outside, or in the office with a cup of coffee)? The working conditions are the most comfortable, the recruiter largely determines his workload. For example, in the morning I like to be passive - to sit at the computer. But in the evening I feel inspired to communicate with people, and it is in the evening that I try to make appointments. In addition, you can always relax, move away from the monitor and drink coffee. 6. What do you like most about your job? An overwhelming flow of information. To be good at workoh recruiter, you have to understand a lot of things - not only in specific positions, the client's business, the psychology of the candidate. You have to navigate the business as a whole, I would say at the global level. Those. know what is happening in your country and in the world - what is the situation with the economy, which companies are leading. 7. What do you dislike most about your job? Uncertainty. In the sense that it is almost impossible to build long-term plans. You can plan everything two weeks in advance, and then suddenly 5 new projects come in, 1 project is canceled, 1 is “frozen”. The same with the plan of the day - it is very mobile. 8. If it's not a secret, what is your salary level (is it enough to write whether you are satisfied or not)? You can live on a salary, taking into account bonuses, you can afford major purchases, vacations abroad, etc. 9. Describe your team, what kind of people work with you? Basically, these are people under 30 years old - completely different in terms of education, professional experience, and temperament. 10. What human qualities do you think are most important in your business? Openness to everything new. Planning skills, information analysis skills, communication skills. 11. Work gives me additional opportunities (here is everything that work gives you except money, from self-expression and communication with interesting people to the opportunity to visit different countries). Constant development through communication with interesting candidates and colleagues (from other cities and countries), as well as trainings and training programs. 12. Do you have the opportunity to evaluate your work on a five-point scale, what grade would you give? Four. 13. Why did you choose this job? I chose this specialty immediately after graduating from the university, because. it closely resonated with my education (management psychology). And also because there was a tempting offer from a Western company.
