@Software project coordinator
How can you say you have interviewed people at various levels, and then say you have no relevant experience in recruitment?
With zero recruitment experience - in all probability, you will start as a fresher; domestic or international won't matter. Your technical experience is important, but doesn't translate into recruitment.
Therefore, it is also possible you will be rejected due to lack of relevant experience.
Seriously consider why you want to get into recruitment. This is a sales based job, very different from what you have been doing.
About compensation in this sector, speak to your contacts in the industry and understand this aspect before going down this road.
All the best.

Respected member,

I appreciate you answer.

Actually I went for an interview in a company .

Regarding technical stuff I was much beyond the recruiters working there from past many years.They observed and told me.

HR said “you might have interviewed many people in IT at various levels but did you worked on End to End recruitment.”

MY ANSWER “I interviewed people for projects in my company and for clients of company”

HR said again “Did you worked on End to End recruitment.”

MY ANSWER “Actually I was asked to do so when company other employees find hard to assess technical know-how of candidate for a particular project. But sourcing and other stuff was done by somebody else in my company because I was busy in coordinating projects. Actually my job was to get requirement from the clients for software projects and get it done by team and delivery etc.”

HR said “So HR told me that they are looking for people who have worked on End to End recruitment.”

HR said “Your final submission”

MY ANSWER “My skills will be an advantage to source the right candidate and read CV full with software jargon something HR GENERALIST fails to understand indeed because they never worked real time on technologies. The clients for whom i have worked are more than happy with me because of my capabilities to understand their requirement in an efficient manner.”

So brother, HR was not convinced but iam stick to my belief that somehow I have worked on recruitment's directly or indirectly.

Actually after five years down the line iam planning to start my own software company with staffing services included. That is the main reason I want to work as a IT recruiter and gain some experience in this field which will help me further in my life.

Dear Software Project Coordinator,
Thanks for your message.
I understand what the HR interviewer meant. You can evaluate technical profiles only, due to your background. You have worked on only a small part viz. technical assessment, and therefore are unaware of the entire process of recruitment. This means that it would be difficult for you to evaluate suitability of the candidate as a team worker, or future manager / leader, identifying other behavioural attributes, reference checks or going back to the start and writing a job description, working on recruitment budgets and so on.
I am doing a program called Find the Right Fit next month on 28th November in Mumbai. You would definitely find it useful to attend since it provides information on the above topics in detail. Look forward to seeing you there.
All the best.
