freelance recruiting helped me pick up on the nuances that separate average candidates from strong ones. This is something that only comes with experience and repetition.
Freelance recruiting is a side hustle you don’t hear much about in the personal finance community. The job of a recruiter is to fill open positions for companies.
In almost all cases, recruiters are paid by the company/client. Recruiting fees are generally based on a candidate’s starting salary.
For example, my business partner had several freelance recruiters working for him. He’d assign it to one of us whenever a job opening came in.
Typically that meant either actively recruiting through LinkedIn or more passively recruiting by making a job posting on Indeed and then screening resumes.
