Dear All,
Why most of the HR professionals hanker for Hr Generalist role rather than HR recruiter role?What is the hierarchy in recruitment profile? Does an Hr generalist have upper hand over an HR recruiter? Please clarify

Hi Aashish,
Recruitment is an integral part of HR. Generalist profile has broader responsibilities which include Recruitment, Payroll, Training & Development, Performance Management Systems, Administration etc. Hence, Generalist role will have a wider exposure and more responsibilities compared to recruiter, but to be a good generalist HR you also should have good knowledge and exposure of recruitments as well.

i came from different school of thoughts. even though people say that recruitment is part of HR, i see recruitment as a very specialised function itself.
Recruitment is not just finding a resume from the sources available but it involves lot of other aspects like evaluating the candidate on his behavioural and technical skills, mapping him to the organizational requirements and ensuring that his skills would help the organization to grow along with the candidate himself.
It may sound as a science, but if one has the zeal of understanding people's behaviour then the recruiter is the first person in the organization who can be in position to understand the employees much before a HR generalist. As a recruiter, we get an opportunity to deal with the candidates initially and we will become face/brand ambassador of the organization.
