HR Recruiters

+ 400 buzzes
What is an HR Recruiter? While the term “HR recruiter” may sound redundant, as both human resources managers and recruiters both find job candidates and get them hired, this job is very specific. Corporate HR recruiters are generally hired by a large company to coordinate the recruitment efforts of the entire company. Instead of working for themselves as headhunters or for a recruitment firm, an HR recruiter focuses their efforts on filling positions within the company that has hired them.

    This is expert advice, @Lynda Spiegel. It is truly important to figure out if the person offering advice knows what they are talking about. Do they have any sort of actual experience or credentials or are they just offering the knee-jerk answer that some guy told them 20 years ago?

    People like to be helpful, but a fair amount of what most people say comes from generalizations. An easy way to evaluate is to ask the crucial question WHY? Find out if they have any substantial reasons that your DQ experience is crucial to getting a job in a medical office. I can think of only one reason, and it is very unlikely - that you might be able to build rapport with your new manager because they also worked at DQ to suport themselves during college. However, that tiny rationale just won't cut it, in the short space available on a resume, unless you know for certain it is relevant. Say, perhaps, your DQ supervisor was the doctor's niece.

    I have to add that everything you've said holds true for interview advice, as well. Family and friends mean well when they help you practice for interviews, but they are invested in you, not in objective feedback. It is quite likely they will knock you out of the confident, competence zone with tales of hard interviews they had to endure and worries of how important the money is.

    Be willing to discard advice that doesn't come with solid rationales.

    Hi Wayne,

    Interesting points/questions. In a nutshell I'd say the average career ladder worker is feeling more squeezed, finding less opportunity and giving up the GRIND. That's why we still have so many out of work.

    A potential solution? Know your value, find your target companies or occupation, and do more than the GRIND - master the art of selling yourself!

    And great companies like Google, setup their structures to look past someone's current job description to all the rest of the untapped knowledge within them that can be a source of unknown potential. No one is ever just their current set of tasks. That fallacy is why work is currently so unproductive and unfulfilling.

Brown, outside of his recording and performing excellence, by 1972 owned 22 businesses. He envisioned not relying on his gift to solely brand himself or sole reliance on one source of income. All of us need to "Get Up Offa That Thing" and diverse our brands and expand our career trajectory outlook. Think global.

    @Lynda Spiegel. Resumes are almost documents of the past.They present the candidate's past core skills ,past education and past experiences.Normally,resumes can't demonstrate the level of intelligence,enthusiasm and the passion of the candidates ,between brackets the candidates future core interests.Today,its
    a realistic idea that you can energize your career strategy by considering the concept of personal branding.The concept is founded on the idea of positioning your core interests and the output of your past core skills.Unlike presenting your past ,positioning means telling your story from the employer's point of view.Giving that every employer has different need your resume should also differ to reflect their need.Here,the candidate should think of two things;first,how the new role can be conceived for the future and in different boundaries;Second, think of how to enhance your worthiness as a creator of opportunities rather than solving problems.

    Since I lean predominantly on referrals, resumes can become merely a legal obligation. A good example of that was when many decades ago I was be lined up for a marketing role - and I was told that I had to wait for the job ad to come out and I simply had to go through the motions of an interview. (Yes I know, terrible isn't it).

    The way HR is presented is often not a reflection of how things sometimes actually play out in the world of HR, (and to the married VP who had an affair with his HR partner I am not talking about you - I will keep that always hush, hush, trust me I have your back) and having experienced other equally incredulous things (often to my advantage - so I am not complaining), that is why now (when it comes to chatter like "personal brand")I have these major eye-rolling moments. A good resume writer is one of the shortcuts to the road less traveled which is ironic as the term "the hidden job market". My favourite eye-rolling HR thing at the moment is the ATS.

    Whether it is resumes or RFP's even beyond the automated human remains (sorry ...HR) systems, the number of times that resumes and RFP's got filed in the round filing system is something I choose not to declare because in resume and RFP terms I invoke the 5th (even though I am not an American). If I were to need a resume I certainly will outsource that - money in the bank as I say, money in the bank :-)

    Two statements jump out at me Lynda:

    1. "This means that you cannot and should not tailor your resume to fit a specific job opening, but instead that you be very clear about what your value proposition is" I've been told this so much it's frustrating. Plus there is this little caveat: The Internet. If you have your resume out there anywhere; BAM, you're busted! My diversity is usually my selling point. Some employers want someone who will think outside the industry box.

    "we exhorted employers to look beyond credentials and instead focus on what a candidate had actually accomplished."
    Not only credentials but THINK about how one skill would be so easily transferable and add real value to the job, but also what isn't what they want. This is one reason I think Key Words are the worse thing to ever to hit the search process. Not only when they are missing but when they are misinterpreted. Example: I'm not a Qlikview developer, no where on my resume does it say I developed software or an application; just that I took a developer course so I could Project Manage an application development. I get dozens of "job opportunities" a week for recruiters looking for a Qlikview developer. They are few and far between and I ain't one of them :o)

    Thanks for sharing, @David B. Grinberg and @John White, MBA. If you hadn't, I would've. This is spot-on advice from real-world experience.

    I love HireArt's method! I tell candidates to go into an interview and DO THE JOB.
    (It may be a bit easier when your title is Business Analyst so I'm inclined to start asking about requirements and giving solutions for, ahem, the job! ;)

    Do it as soon as you can - in a letter, résumé or interview. That's where networking, word of mouth and personal brand come in too.

    This can show your value, skill and interest/enthusiasm. If it's not a job you'd want you won't have much passion for it. Believe me, that comes across. I trained young guys out of college and you can tell they'd rather be anywhere else. Do that in an interview, and you're out!

    Randomly tailoring your résumé for each job waters down your value and will not pass the ATS, as it is looking for consistent keywords.
    Thanks for sharing that hard lesson, @Lynda Spiegel! Again, GREAT post.

    Hi, @wayne-white.

    Good question.Yes, companies want loyal, competent employees, but there are a few hindrances:

    1) Ageism/prejudice - Let's face it, many managers come with certain attitudes, assumptions that can taint their decision making;
    2) Candidates can be their own worst enemies. - Note that image is everything because - especially if people don't know you - opinions will be based on that first, superficial impression. Looking the part matters. Ex: You could be 55 and look hip or be 40 and look like you're stuck in the 90s. It will make a difference;
    3) Keeping Current - Again, you could be Tom Ford is who is 55 but is always innovating, very creative, and always open to learning; or you could be 40 and set in your ways, not be open to change, training;
    4) Your innate abilities and will - Let's face it. If you show that you're willing to roll up the sleeves and hustle, it makes a difference.

    Note that most hiring managers are NOT strategic when it comes to hiring, and recruiting is totally strategic. They also depend heavily on HR instead of owning the process, and HR is not your best recruiter: They, too, are not strategic. Their main concern is managing employee and company issues, not hiring. They don't know all the roles and their functions, and they shouldn't have to.

    Okay. What does that mean for the average job seeker? You have to forge your own destiny.

    Reinvent yourself. Be open to change. Take MOOCs (many are free). Learn new skills, get up to date on apps, programs, software, methodologies. Small changes can yield big results. If you're in Finance, brush up on FinTech, for example. Just like a product, you have to differentiate and promote yourself. Communicate like all get out. Be strategic and get on social networks and show what you have and connect (really connect) with people. Be where your targets are, and change how you get to them.

    The American HR funnel runs on the ATS & Key words which grant you 6 seconds of attention ~ if you get seen at all. Step far and away out of the Resume - Submit - Wait bullshit cycle. Get face to face. On-line apps are a waste of time. And if they can't figure it out ~ overseas is hiring talent without this techno wall.

    Telemarketing jobs suck, but they hire everyone and there mother if you really need something fast, do phone work.

    I mean it depends on your background, your criminal history, your location, your competition, your charisma. There are a lot of factors, your age?????????????

    "As we discussed, I was able to meet a similar challenge" This is the exact concise point of the follow-up - to write down and trigger in the hiring managers mind why you are the best candidate. The closer you can do this to the timeframe they might have mentioned for making their decision, the better. You want your top qualities fresh on their mind as they sit down to make a very complex decision.
