Hi Suresh,

IT recruitments is a vast field, I shall try to list down the basics which i think should give you a headstart

1- A Basic understanding of the IT domain, eg Process flows from getting a requirement to designing a software package, the components that go into it .
to simplify - If you were asked to recruit a SAP consultant....you would need to know first if you had to recruit a Technical or a Functional consultant.

2- Technical Jargons - understand what is the software lingo all about what is programming / development / Support maintainence /Front-end technologies/ Backend Technolgoies etc .To start with any recruitment person with a non-Tech background needs to atleast understand the basic flow of technological process .

3- Atleast attempt to get familiar with most of the technlogies in the market - Eg Microsoft / Embedded / Mobile Apps/ ERP etc (depending on the kind of IT Vertical you would like to handle.

4- Hierarchial structures ie an IT designation and Job profiling is different from a Non- IT set up. Hypothetical example - An AM-HR in a Manufacturing company would be a very senior experienced person with atleast 10 yrs minimum of experience on the contrary , in the IT world it could be a person with 3-4 yrs exp.

5- With a little hands on experience a recruitment person will be able to understand the market , the business cylces , the salary parity etc

6- Ability to communicate(Verbal/Non verbal) effectively is a must for a good recruitment proffessional .

In addition to the above a lot of Softskills are equally important as this profession deals with getting the Right man for the Right Job.

Hey Deepthi,
Both Recruitment and Marketing is equally challenging but for Marketing you need to contact to place your consultants which you will get from Recruitment. You will be having better hold if you work on recruitment and then move to sales.

Hi Suresh
In IT recruitment companies firstly you will be starting as a fresher though you have 3 years experience with you.
In case you are good technically it will not be a difficult task to get into any recruitment company like artech, fcs. As they are big companies so they do hire freshers , train them on technologies, roles as per the requirement etc,
You also need to decide whether you want to go into domestic or US recruitments.
In case you are selecting IT recruitments considering monetary part, - then US recruitments will be the best.
deserving candidates get as high as 50k to 1.5lac per month also.( it all comes with experience and skills)
In case you would like to know anything more about recruitments please feel; free to mail me.
