4. Relationship building skills. Great recruiters think of recruitment as a relationship between a candidate and a company. Similar to a sales process, it takes much more than a single touchpoint to make a sale, or in this case, fill a position. You can rely on email automation to start your relationship and then write personalized emails from scratch once you build some rapport.

Recruiters with great relationship building skills can build and nurture the relationship between a candidate and a company, acting in the benefit of both parties. The recruitment process is the first place a company gets to show off their employer brand, and is the determining factor in creating a positive candidate experience.

5. Multitasking skills. Hiring is a lengthy process, and there's quite a lot between posting a job ad and filling an open position. Recruiters need to put together job ads, screen applicants, run background checks, conduct interviews, consult with their employer, make job offers and much more. A great recruiter has a knack for doing multiple things at once and excelling in each of them.

6. Time management skills. With multitasking comes time management, as there's only a certain amount of hours in a day and sometimes, companies need a position filled very quickly. Time becomes even more relevant if the recruiter is working with companies that have flexible working hours and employees across different time zones.

7. Patience. A successful recruiter needs to have a great amount of patience, as they deal with both candidates and companies. A simple task such as setting up a job interview can require quite a lot of patience from the recruiter's end, as they often won't be able to find a term that suits everyone.

8. Listening skills. Besides listening to the companies they're hiring for, recruiters need to listen to applicants with great attention. Applicants, in particular, are very important because their feedback is crucial to placing them in a position that suits both them and the employer.

9. Confidence. Especially important for generalist recruiters, confidence is a must-have recruitment skill. When they're hiring for a role they have very little experience with, recruiters need to be confident in their skills to find the best person for the job.
