We asked our attendees, “What is something that you would recommend someone do that is trying to get into recruiting?”

Here are their answers:

  • attending a job fair with a recruiter
  • Expand your network, connect with recruiters
  • Go into sales first and then transition into recruiting
  • Go work for an agency!
  • I would recommend working at a staffing firm. This will give them some great experience on how to cold call, etc.
  • Internship.
  • Learn the art of servant leadership and make sure that everything you do is adding value to your company/candidates/clients.
  • Research
  • Start as a sourcer
