What does a Senior Corporate Recruiter do?

A corporate recruiter is responsible for filling open positions for an organization. They conduct the process from the stage of locating potential applicants via various sources, such as social media or resume banks, to interviewing and offering positions to qualified applicants. Corporate recruiters often specialize in one job field, such as information technology, and recruit only candidates from this area. To find recruits, some corporate recruiters travel to job fairs or attend networking events.

A recruiter may also pursue certifications, after working for at least one year in the role, from the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).
