Profitability or growth?

Huh?

@OP, good question. Growth speaks to trajectory and strategy of a company. If you're an investor, you want to know that this business is growing and staying competitive or at-par with the competition.

If a company shows next to no growth in an industry, that can be concerning...for instance if other competitors are growing, that means that this business is losing its market share, which foreshadows declining revenues and profits.

You need profitability AND growth in a healthy business, but I do agree it's okay to balance one more so than the other. So you have some companies that grow organically at low rates, but continue to earn accolades for fiscal discipline and improving profitability, for instance.

Can anyone at a company like Amazon, Microsoft, Apple, etc tell me about the breakdown of a Recruiters job? For example, when I worked in agency recruitment, it was 100% sourcing. Working for a healthcare system now, it is more about the candidate experience, much less sourcing, and focusing on the candidates who do apply (thankfully we have a great reputation).

Being that most corporations have dedicated sourcers, I was interested in learning more!
