I am wondering how does the career path for tech recruiter looks like?

What are your thoughts on future of this profession?

What other options a recruiter can pursue in HR field?

A few quick ones:

1) various levels of seniority within tech recruitment through to TA Director

2) move into more ATS/HR systems and projects eg Implementation Manager, Project Manager, Data & Reporting

3) move into HR as generalist, onboarding, talent development, succession planning - up to HR Business Partner

I’ve seen a lot of posts surrounding burn-out. I personally had time off work (6 months+) for corporate and personal burn-out and I know how devastating it can be to go through.

Post below the ways in which you ensure you check in and take care of yourself to avoid burning out. Not all of these will be accessible for everyone, but maybe we can find support in each other.



Looking to book girls trip first weekend of November. Is Salem/Rockport, MA too cold at that time? Any other recommendations? Looking for a relaxing trip with not many people around.

Ok, so definitely not an educational question. Ordered a pizza to pick up after work. Paid online. Asked if I wanted to tip. For a pizza I’m going to pick up myself and bake at home? What’s the feeling about tipping? I’ve seen a grocery store ask if I wanted to tip the cashier. Seems if companies are asking to tip their employees maybe they need to pay better? Not talking about waitstaff/hairstylist and those industry.

Yesterday my younger brother called me looking for good hidden swimming spots in the mountains. He was up there with a bunch of friends and their original plans had fallen apart hard. And I go much more often than he does.

I told him I had map pins that are EXACTLY what you need for these hard to find places. I can send them in 10 mins when I get home.

Reply? Forget it, I'm all set.

Yep, 10 mins is too long. Here I was expecting "Wow! That's fantastic!" How silly of me.

Hi ladies, I need some advice. How long into dating someone do you have the “what are we” conversation. I’ve been seeing a guy for 1.5 months, and I’m realizing I actually like him. I don’t really have any desire to see anyone else, but I don’t know if it is too soon to have that conversation. For some additional context, he got out of a semi-serious relationship in November, and I think he wants to play the field a bit. I generally eschew these conversation to avoid getting hurt. Please help 🙈

Any best practices on what has worked to streamline recruiting processes for devs?

2nd stage of our interview process is a technical challenge and a conceptual discussion (system design)

Do any of you have experience with structuring a technical challenge to where it's the same for each candidate? I've had it happen where our devs asked questions to each candidate based on their lived experience vs. a standard set of questions that revolve around what needs to be performed in a dev role.
