There’s no job on the planet that’s as full of contrasts as the role of a recruiter. I’ll show you how.

First contrast  

While recruiting, the talent master not only requires a sharp, targeted reach, but also a knowledge of broad ranging candidate qualities such as culture fit, leadership qualities etc.

Big picture elements aim to align a candidate’s value systems, beliefs, and broad skills with that of a company’s, with as little friction as possible. They also include a company’s overall strategy towards approaching candidates.

So, to give you a visual, a recruiter dives into the sea to find the hidden gold at the bottom. But as she’s swimming down, she has to remember the time, the location of rescue ships, the direction of the shore, and so on.

Second contrast

On one hand she has to carry on her personal learning. At the same time, her role is such that she ends up being the mentor/trainer or at least a facilitator for employees.

So, while she has to cover up a good distance to reach her personal goals, she also has to show employees the right direction so the company reaches its precise goals. Course correction is also an added responsibility to her profile.

Third contrast

A recruiter with a knack for ‘thinking outside the box’ is any day preferred over its opposite. However, since a role in HR requires one to follow a lot of procedures, rules, compliances etc. a recruiter walks a pretty thin line here.

To balance these two drastically opposite ends and still strike a productive balance is nothing less than a feat in itself.

So, you get the point, right? – That the resilience, knowledge, and pure passion needed to finish such tasks will make a normal guy back out in a blink.

That’s why we celebrate the spirit of a star recruiter. It’s our way of telling them, “Yes, we understand the depth and breadth of your daily hard work. Yes, we see you battling contrasts and still deliver results and for that we admire you.”

So, to do just that in April, 2017, we’re announcing star recruiters of April today. And the award goes to…
