Do you think that sales skills are an important/integral part of tech recruiting? Or recruiting in general? Do you see what you do as partly being "sales" oriented?

Yes! I’ve done recruiting for 7yrs and tech recruiting for one. And for tech recruiting is definitely more sales driven specially for the roles that have more competition

like

Absolutely, yes. Some recruiting positions are full desk so business development is imperative.

I'm selling candidates as well as the clients I represent. Recruiters are brand ambassadors.

Yes! Sales and Marketing are both a big part of recruiting, esp Tech Recruiting where the competition is fierce. You’ll mostly be pulling people from fulltime gigs and to do that you’ll need a good pitch and ability to market your company’s value prop/brand.

like

Yes… unfortunately, whether one calls it sales…huge selling skills come in handy as a recruiter.

Recruiting absolutely involves many elements of sales - whether you are an agency or corporate recruiter. Clearly defining the problem your services solve, selling the candidate on the company/role/growth trajectory, selling the hiring manager on the candidate’s background/experience/how they’ll solve the “problem”, and marketing yourself as a trusted strategic partner.

Honest question: how often do you wish your friends from other religions for their festivals?

To be fair, I get Eid wishes from my Hindu friends each year but curious as to the situation.

Good Morning all,

Since I pivoted into TA (from the Wild West known as Finance) Tech Recruiting has always been the goal. But I’m having a hard time finding a way to get into that space (I do understand there’s a hiring crisis). Nevertheless, does anyone know of tech companies that are hiring? I may be low on the experience side so I’m willing to look at contract/ entry roles as well. Also, any advice will be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
