My girlfriend did it and she loves it. If you don’t love copywriting make a change. The time and stress that goes into creative doesn’t seem worth it if you don’t enjoy it.

The best creative recruiters come out of creative. As for salary, the potential is there to make a very decent living depending on how you grow your career.

I wouldn’t say that. You’d come in much higher because of your hands-on experience and network. Of course, there’s much more to recruiting than having a network, and it’s not for the faint of heart. On average, recruiters last a max of six years before exiting the industry.
