Other tasks that recruiting coordinators perform include managing recruitment communications on the web, providing accurate information about vacancies, coordinating orientation training activities, designing effective strategies for improved logistics, and attending organizational meetings. They also monitor company metrics to attract better candidates and use company resources more efficiently.
