Hi there! Currently an instructional coach for an elementary school. Looking to transition to the corporate world and recruiting is a field that I am interested in. Lots of transferable skills. What positions should I be looking for? What are the typical starting salaries for these positions? Hoping I don’t have to take a pay cut.

Hi there! There are lots of roles related to recruitment and depending on the size of the organization, there may be a lot of growth opportunities within the field. In my team, we have recruiting coordinators, Sourcers, and Recruiters. Would recommend seeking out those types of roles. As far as compensation, if you start with a recruitment agency, you would likely make less in base compensation but more in commission. If you went for a corporate recruiting team, we tend to do a base plus bonus potential. Commission in corporate recruitment is a rare find. Bases can range between $45k-$70k depending on where you are in the country and the organization.


Thanks for the info!

This job market is insane right now.

Now, with all of these layoffs... employers have the upper hand, and it's super competitive to land the job.

I work full time as a senior manager (L7) at Amazon. I've passed one the hardest interview that Amazon has to be a part of the executive team.

I started coaching on the side and really fell in love with it. I've helped a ton of people land their dream job!

If you need a career coach or help with prepping for your next interview. DM me or comment!

Been w/ my bf 5.5 yrs, but I keep wondering when he's going to "get it together". He's been fired from 2 manager jobs in less than a year, one because he was caught doing coke there (off-duty). Now he's bartending under the table. I have huge concerns that he has serious drug/alcohol problems but it also just boils down to, does he want to improve? He's the kindest, sweetest person and we really love each other. But at some point I need my partner in his mid-30s to have a savings account 🤷‍♀️
