Masters degrees in Recruitment Methods equip postgraduates to understand and implement professional recruitment processes for a variety of organisations.
Courses are typically taught MA or MSc programmes, though research oriented MRes degrees may be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject.
Recruitment Methods refer to the means by which an organisation reaches potential job seekers. As such, the training you will receive on these Masters is highly diverse, including both academic theory and vocational approaches.
You will typically research the direct, indirect and third party methods of recruiting job seekers. These include: analysing the success of an organisation’s outreach activities; learning to develop appropriate material for advertisements on the web and in print media; assessing the advantages of recruiting through agencies.
You may specialise in recruitment for a specific industry, or head-hunting techniques more generally. Most courses will offer you a placement opportunity to develop your personal abilities in professional practice.
Aside from traditional roles in recruitment departments or employment agencies, you may also explore roles in admissions for education institutions, design and marketing, or content writing in numerous contexts.
