One of the biggest misconceptions that persists about recruiting concerns the type of people who make good recruiters.
“ recruiters need to be extroverts to be successful,” writes Grant Clough, director of talent acquisition at AARP.
Isis Abreu, a technical recruiter at Uber, also believed this when she entered the HR field back in 2014.
“Fast forward, I discovered that recruiting is such a data-driven area that you don’t need to be a good talker, but a good listener and a good collector of facts,” she says. “I had a colleague that is an introvert and she was probably one of the most efficient and innovative recruiters I’ve ever worked with. I think challenging [that] bias could bring a lot of innovation to the recruiting role.”
