Top Skills of a Good Recruiter (Part 1) Human Resources
Recruiters play an important role in an organization. They have the necessary knowledge and understanding of the various job positions and duties, and the type of person who would fit well within particular roles; within the company. However, this is not an easy task and recruiters have to face this challenge with good and sharp intellectual skills.
Judging a person in a few minutes is a difficult task and unfortunately, recruiters only have the luxury of a brief time period to judge a person and decide whether they should be hired onboard the team. Hence, here are some of the skills that recruiters must possess in order to make the right decisions while hiring employees.
Excellent Listening Skills
This is a crucial skill for recruiters. Recruiters must listen to and interpret their communication with the candidates. They must be able to listen carefully to the candidates to determine how well they will fit the job role. Every person is not cut out for the job. Therefore, it is the duty of the recruiter to judge whether the candidates will be able to handle the job or not.
Recruiters need to have a vast amount of knowledge regarding the industry, the business, the specific job positions and the candidates. Only then will they be able to make the right choices while hiring. Recruiters must strive to keep themselves updated with the current information on all these aspects.
For instance, they must understand the skills and experience required for a particular position being offered. They should also have an understanding of the different personality types and age groups; because although every individual has differing needs; but there are some needs that are commonly shared by people of particular personality types or of specific age groups.
