Can I subcontract as a recruiter? Example: I know I can fill the open reqs in a company but can’t commit to it because I’m not living my job lol

Yeah that’s my thought.

Isn’t that just contingency recruitment?

Kind off lol but I want a staffing agency structure

Hi Dance Teachers! What have been your favorite “get to know you activities” over zoom on the first few days of school?

Has anyone here participated in the year long remote year program? My company is fully remote in the US and is in general supportive of me going but concerned about local and international tax liability. Remote year doesn’t share tax advice and our HR team is small. Curious to hear from people at companies who have done it before and if there were any issues from a tax or payroll perspective. Trying to get the formal approval from my company before officially signing up, advice welcome!

I have been working with a company for about 6 years as a Recruiter but I don’t feel I’m gaining the best recruiting experience due to so many limitations our company has. I’ve had to teach myself Boolean searching to be more active in recruiting. I have not had the luxury of someone to truly mentor me into a Recruiter so I’m trying to find any way I can learn and be more employable. Any advice? I’ve obtained my SHRM-CP, CIR and am in the process of a the PRC. What else can I utilize or do? Thx!

Advice for getting past burn-out.
I’ve been a recruiter for 20 yrs, but am still young. First 10 yrs were Corporate TA; most recent 10 are with Agency. For the majority of my career, I’ve been passionate about my job. I navigated the highs and lows and was always enthusiastic about starting each workday. We recently had leadership changes that affect me negatively…. But my job is still intact. However, I have lost my mojo. Reviewing Recruiter job postings does nothing to inspire me.


Any UK based HR Professionals or Recruiters in here? I’m struggling on which certifications to get. Just pivoted into a Talent Sourcer role, I have experience of talent attraction but I wonder which HR/recruitment qualifications I could do to support my transition.

Deciding between:
1. CIPD Level 3 Foundation Certificate in People Practice (will allow me to gain a high level view of the HR function that my new role fits into)
2. Level 3 Certificate in Recruitment Practice


Can anyone share their thoughts on Randstad Sourceright? I've been offered a role with them as a consultant and would be seconded to another business. Salary is v good and they pitch it as consulting but with the security of being a PAYE/perm employee... which sounds great but it seems almost too good to be true! Like, at the end of the 12 month secondment are they just planning to pay my wage until they get me another contract?


Hi I’m hiring a recruiter role in the US. Looking for someone with experience in a software company and who can be Atlanta or east coast time zone. Can be fully remote.
Salary c$60k plus 10% bonus and recruitment fee for each direct and referral placement you make (which could add c$30k+ to earnings) we have a great selection of company benefits. Is this package attractive? There’s great opportunity for career development and the company is growing so lots of new roles. We are international too!

So I received a verbal offer from a company, that is outside of Big Tech. It’s an opportunity for me to finally be in the role of Talent Acquisition Manager, but the salary is lower than what I am currently making. To be transparent it’s $23k less and the bonus is 5% less. Should I counter or be grateful to have received the offer pending layoffs at my company?

I have a university recruiter who works under me. There only job is to source candidates. Approximately how many candidates do you think this person should be able to source per day/week. Our main method is LinkedIn Recruiter.


Isn't this what it's all about?! 🥰

Working in contingent staffing surely has its ups and downs but moments like this are really what our work boils down to.

Happy hunting to all of my fellow recruiters!

Heading into 2023, here are some phrases I'm eliminating:

1. "No worries."
2. "No problem."
3. "Sorry to bother you."
4. "Does this make sense?"
5. "Sorry, I'll fix that right now."

Here's what I'm replacing them with: ⤵
1. My pleasure.
2. Of course, happy to help.
3. When you have a minute, can I get your opinion on ____?
4. Does this help you clarify things?
5. Thank you for catching that! 

Words are powerful.

Use it wisely.

Never sell yourself short when you know you have good intentions


I recently received an offer for a Sr. Recruiter role with a startup. I have a feeling that the offer they made me is at the top of their salary range. The interview process was great and the hiring manager seems wonderful.

Knowing that she got me an offer for the very top of their salary band, would it be wise to still try and negotiate? I typically do negotiate any offer but I don’t want to come across as ungrateful. Please advise, I could really use some insight on this. What would you do?
