what engineering recruiter jobs entail
As an engineering recruiter, you may work full or part-time, usually in an office environment, though some employers now offer opportunities to work virtually. You're regularly tasked with finding job seekers in a range of engineering disciplines such as mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, civil engineering, industrial engineering, process engineering, and architecture, among others.
While chances are you're not a trained engineer yourself, you’re an expert in the skills and qualifications available in the field. You're able to glance at a candidate's resume and understand if they have the qualifications that your client or employer is looking for. As an engineering recruiter, you may work closely with an engineering manager to ascertain that someone who appears to fit a position has the necessary skills.
