With industry knowledge, work experience and higher academic credentials, you can pursue administrative positions in large agencies or companies that work in this domain. You also have the option of starting your own business venture in the field of recruitment consultancy. Popular undergraduate courses to pursue include BBA (Bachelor of Business Administration), BBA in Human Resources, BBA in Human Resource Management and BBA in Global Business. Popular master's courses include MBA (Master of Business Administration) in Human Resource Management and MBA in Global Business.

The most prominent employers for recruitment consultants are employment and recruitment agencies. Some companies with larger scale of operations and a massive workforce may have in-house recruitment consultants working for them. This is common in specialised domains like banking and law. Recruitment agencies may also specialise in a particular professional domain. For example, you could choose to work as a recruitment consultant for an agency that specialises in outsourcing visual design or content writing work for several multinational companies.

Consultants in this domain may typically follow regular office hours, but with tight schedules and unconventional work hours around important deadlines. Consultants are usually salaried employees and may receive bonuses based on their performance, from companies, clients or agencies that hire them. Recruitment can be a strenuous activity and may require you to pursue periodic goals and compete with other professionals in your domain. This makes a recruitment consultant's job role similar to that of a sales executive.

A recruitment consultant mediates between a client company and a job-seeker to find a good fit between the two. The job contains an inherent sales component, as you are selling the client to the candidate and vice versa. Furthermore, you must operate as a salesperson when promoting your services to paying clients. A client pays for your ability to act on their behalf and find ideal employees for their opening.

As a recruitment consultant, you communicate with client companies and job seekers. If the candidate has a question surrounding the recruiting process, you liaise with the company to answer the job seeker's inquiry.
