Job Description for Recruiting Coordinator

Recruiting coordinators complete a number of human resources tasks for their organization, mainly related to recruiting, interviewing, and hiring new employees. They conduct candidate screening and set appointments as needed, as well as resolve applicant inquiries related to open positions. They provide orientation information and other data to new employees; they also file a variety of background checks, in addition to credit- or drug-related tests (which may be required depending on the organization or position). 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.
