"When hiring an executive recruiter, a recruiting firm will look for candidates who have the industry knowledge and recruiting skills to seek out applicants for executive and high-level management positions. In an interview you can expect to be asked about the traits you look for in executive candidates, the processes you use to vet applicants, and your turnaround rate for filling positions. You should also be prepared to answer any technical questions that pertain to the industry you will be recruiting in."
What qualities/skills do you obtain that would be applicable to a recruiting role, in terms of the specific day-to-day roles and functions of the position?
A recruiter should try to keep on upgrading his/her skill set on a routine basis. the world is so vast and fast...do not stop and be a person who can target the right market/candidate. its just not hunt for the candidate, its about building the brand name and taking it to another level with just from a word of mouth!! Recruitment is such a creative and innovative role and thats what i love about it.
