Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.
A few clicks through your connections on LinkedIn should bring up some recruiters. After all, we are the most popular profession to utilize this social media platform.
A quick glance at the titles of these connections and you will discover that you are not in Kansas any longer.
Talent Acquisition Specialist. Staffing Consultant. IT Recruiter. Or my personal favorite, Rainmaker. Do you really shake someone’s hand, give them your business card and say, “Hi, I’m a Rainmaker?”
When did we stop being recruiters? Job titles will always be an important part of human resources. The title should go hand-in-hand with the responsibilities, direct-reports and pay of the position.
Why is simply being a recruiter no longer enough to differentiate ourselves and stand out from the crowd?
