This is an interesting one because recruitment as a career, really isn't for everybody but many people just 'fall into it' - probably more than most professions. To be a good recruiter requires a very particular set of skills, just like any other job. When it is for you and you really gel with it, it's a brilliant career path, but there's always people who accidentally fall into it and don't see their time in recruitment as a long term career for themselves, which is also fine.
So what do you? It's always a risk moving onto something new, especially if you've got a good few years of alternative experience under your belt, but with recruitment, your skills are highly transferable (they REALLY are!). The Undercover Recruiter names it's top 9 as:
- Account Management
- Events Planner
- Loan Officer
- Career Counsellor
- General Counsellor
- HR Manager
- Real Estate Agent
- FBI Agent
