Who is a Recruiter ?
Recruiters are the ones authorized by the Employers to find a capable right candidate as per Employer’s need. Different recruiters specialize in specific job sectors. The best idea to search for a recruiter’s specific hiring industry is to look out their social media profiles.
Most Recruiters are dealing with 30 to 40 Employers or companies at a time. Lets consider 3 job openings from each Employer, it means recruiters are trying to choose the right candidate for more than 100 Vacancies at a time. There are many applicants for each vacancy, but if we consider 5 applicants for each vacancy, so recruitment office is dealing with more than 500 applications at the same time.
Hiring someone who is qualified, skilled and experienced (as per employer’s requirement) is the main goal of a recruiter. Number of applications are usually huge, if recruiters respond to each and every applicant, then they have no time left for the rest hiring process. That is why, recruiter only respond to those applications which are considered and shortlisted.
