Hi everyone,
I am currently a sales representative at Cintas and I am looking to make a jump over to recruiting. Does anybody have any advice? Also does anybody know of any remote recruiting roles that are available out there?

Would like to hear your opinion:

I am new recruiter with about 2 yrs experience within people practice ( learning & development - Employability support - and now recruiting)

I am keen to transition to FAANG/UK but not sure if I should continue in people’s business! Or should I try RPM/APM opportunities as I am currently leading full cycle work with cross functional teams I feel that might be nice thing to take a look at.

Is there other promising career paths I can transition to within tech?
