Employment statistics suggest that neither a specialization in human resources nor an MBA in this field are absolute requirements for most recruiter positions. It is always a good idea to check the educational and experience qualifications in the description of a recruiter position you want. Other experts suggest that it can be easier to land a consultancy position with recruitment responsibilities than it is to get hired as a recruiter for a major company without an MBA in HR.
You can fortify your credentials by joining an internal recruitment team or start working as a consultant while pursuing an MBA. This will allow you to grow your network and gain experience at the same time that you obtain formal training. Depending on your experience and network, however, you may find a company or firm willing to hire a tried-and-true recruiter without a degree in HR.
