What does a recruiter do?

A recruiter is a specialist in the field of hiring personnel. As a recruiter, you ensure that the right candidates are matched to the right positions. A recruiter can be hired by a company to recruit people to fill new or existing positions. Some companies employ their own recruiters. Especially larger companies where it's difficult to find people for certain positions. For instance, think of positions in the field of IT. A recruiter is a real networker, has an entrepreneurial attitude, works dependably, has good knowledge of people and is able to sell a good story.
