You may have received recruitment training in the form of sales, candidate expectation handling, finding candidates, using referrals and all the other skills but what about sitting in front of the I.T. Manager and having a meaningful conversation about the skill set that he’s looking for. Where does that training come ?
After getting certified you will be able to CONSULT and the manager opposite you will take advice from you as you understand his needs.
