We are hoping to understand what an average recruiter's req load should look like (for hard to fill tech positions) vs. call center/operations high-volume. What does everyone's req load look like in a normal market, for direct hires? (Well, the new normal at least!)

Do you have a mix of hard to fill and high volume or are you asking for each?

hard to fill tech: 3-6
corporate recruiting: no more than 12-18
mass hire entry level: 30-60

Does anybody pay their candidates for going through technical tests? We have a take home test that can get pretty long (10 hours in average) and so we are thinking on giving some sort of compensation but we don’t know how (gift cards, cash? Do you transfer to the candidates account or do they sent an invoice?) and especially how much. Any insight will be greatly appreciated!


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 Fellow recruiters, How do you keep candidates warm in the recruitment process without compromising their positive experience. My approach is always to be as honest and transparent as possible however this isn’t always a possibility in some instances. Please share any tips.


Hi I’m new to this platform and would love to be able to interact more with people through DM’s. If you could like this message and comment your favorite thing about working in recruiting, I would greatly appreciate it! Looking forward to connecting!

Hi everyone! Just wanted to check in on the recruiters of fishbowl, how are we all doing? Here’s how I’m doing: 🤪


How do you feel about / react to candidates, usually for higher level positions, being somewhat (or very much so) condescending during an introductory interview because you are younger than they are or not a professional in that specific field (because you are a recruiter!)? I feel like a lot of people get very offended by this and I don’t understand it.


Am I getting underpaid? I’m a University Recruiter and am making $65k in Chicago. I have over 5 years of university relations experience and recruiting experience. In my former role, I worked closely with universities and managed college and high school programs. I recruited 20 interns each summer for 5 summers in my former role. This is my first time working with an ATS and working with hiring managers. The current company I work for is a Fortune 500.

Currently interviewing with Facebook (Meta) and looking for advice from other Technical Recruiters that recently joined. I’d be leaving a great company after less than 1 year, but I’d get the chance to upgrade my leveling (perhaps even mgmt) with the bonus of getting experience at a FAANG company.

Seeking career advice! I transitioned from agency to in-house recruiting with a large marketing/media company exactly 1 year ago- making $110k + 10k bonus in NYC. I recently found out I’ve been handling more and filling more then other recruiters at the company and asked for a raise. I was denied, citing that I would be making more than recruiters who had been with the company longer than me. Is it too early to start looking elsewhere or should I stick it out in hopes of getting a promotion?


How do I know if I am dealing with an unconscious bias or speaking with an unqualified candidate?


I was declined for a job. The recruiter asked me if I ‘d be interested in a different role. He sent me a job description and I decided to go for it. He said he forwarded my resume to the department head. The job isn’t on the website and I’m concerned that it doesn’t actually exist. Has any other recruiter done this, recommend someone for a different role after a denial?


I have an interview with Amazon for a Senior Sourcing Recruiter next week. I dont see much salary info on Glassdoor for the Senior level role - anyone have any insight on this?


I'm super curious - I see a lot of roles open for tech recruiting and the consensus seems to be that yes the salaries/comp potential is much higher but - has anyone made the move to tech recruiting and been burnt out by the difficulty? Or is it as difficult as any other niche recruiting sector?

How do you deal with assessments and lengthy interview process combined with low applicant pools combined with candidate market/drop off? Is it much more of a headache or totally worth the move?


Have any of you worked at Google as a contractor? Looking for some insight as to what I’m walking into lol
