"Technical recruiting is a demanding sector of recruiting that requires an understanding of what software engineers do and how the tech industry works. In an interview, expect to discuss your knowledge of the technology field for which you are applying as well as answer typical recruiting questions about organizational and time management skills. Because employees in this role need a more advanced skill set than general recruiters, companies often look for candidates with at least 1-3 years of prior recruiting experience."
In order to recruit IT personnel, we expect you to be up to date on languages and operating systems. Tell us about your experience.
I am up to date on discussing any language or operating system need that an employer describes to me as being critical to accomplishing the job. As a recruiter for 25 years, it was not necessary that I do the job that I recruited for. That would be like requiring employees to be dead to work for an undertaker (NO I DIDN'T SAY THAT, but wanted to).
