According to my knowledge:
Non-IT Recruitment includes many sector, it’s a very vast field. Sectors like: Banking & Insurance, Retail, Pharmaceuticals/Health care, Aviation, Manufacturing, Chemical/Petrochemical, Construction, Advt./Mass Communication/event Management comes under Non-IT Recruitment.
IT Recruitment is basically for Software Companies. An It Recruiter deals different types of IT requirements i.e. requirements related to different IT skills or technologies such as: Java, .Net, Oracle, SAP, Embedded, Linux, UNIX, HTML, DHTML, and XML etc.
One should have knowledge of all these technologies to work as IT recruiter.

My colleagues Shree & Dayanithi have given correct views on the same. We thank them for the same.
Please allow me to further comments on the IT recruitments though am not from this field.
First off all try to get a broad understanding of the types of companies in terms of :-
# Products and services offered
# Product development vs. project development
# Expertise/competencies of these companies - development, testing,
consulting, project manangement, product management, support etc.
The typical roles and responsibilities in these areas are :-
# A high level understanding of the domains and technologies -this is mainly for resume scanning.
# Understanding the technical terms helps IT Recruiter to assess the candidate's capability and potential by asking the right questions which is essentially the pre-technical screening.
As far as growth prospects or career is concerned ; the IT companies especially the one's in S/Wdevelopment have requirements for their recruitments teams both at junior & senior level as overall hiring in these companies is relatively higher both due to new projects coming in & also due to the high attrition rate.
Also once one understands the industry and technologies well, one can diversify into other HR areas as well like employee relations since one begins to understand the employee issues in this sector.
Hope this helps in preparing for the future interviews.
