The primary role of talent acquisition directors is to manage the hiring process and find qualified recruits to fill organizational vacancies. These directors must be able to use various sources to find new applicants, such as job-search websites and job fairs. They must also sort through applications and information from potential hires. Talent acquisition directors participate in at least part of the recruitment process, including by interviewing and negotiating with candidates; they also help optimize hiring policies. Other tasks performed by talent acquisition directors include participating in meetings related to hiring strategies and training other members of the hiring team.
