Hello All,
Can anyone tell me the difference between IT Recruitment and Non-IT Recruitment???
Recently I had been to an interview for the position of a Recruitment Manager, after successfully clearing three rounds, in the third round, the person interviewing me mentioned that they want a person with IT recruitment experience. I hold experience in ITES recruitment. This made me feel bad, even though i put in the efforts and cleared the rounds, i could not get the job.
Pls enlighten me... pls send ur replies to

According to my knowledge:
Non-IT Recruitment includes many sector, its 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.

Hai dear friend..HR (recruitment) has been two Kind one is IT recruiter and other one is Non-IT Recruiter , IT is always be related only latest and advance version . we have only good knowledge in IT sector , we will manage and also we have good in all platforms.

Hi Madhu,

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.

Best wishes,

Hi Madhu,

IT recruitment is all about Technology Hiring- Java, .net, BA, QA, Developers, Project Managers, Architects, Analyst and all the roles that need some technical acumen.
Whereas Non- IT roles are generally the roles related to non Technical skills like in Bank- Branch managers, Sales managers, HR, Legal, Sales rep, Lab Technicians, Manufacturing Engineers and much more.
The Industry can remain same e.g. Indigo- They hire cabin crews- Non- IT/ Software Developers- IT
