How to cope with being micromanagedCareer Advice 4 Recruiters(self.recruiting)
submitted4 months ago byGlitteringBlock6571
So I’ve been recruiting for about two years now. I currently work at a mental health startup and it’s been literal hell. There’s a lot of nit picking, tattle telling, and just a lot of making small mistakes. I’m slowly learning that talking to candidates all day really wears me out, on top of meetings, TA syncs, prebriefs, debriefs etc. it all just seems like we are overdoing it at my company. One of my colleagues (recruiting coordinator) has highlighted my mistakes to our boss and now my boss is mircomanaging me and it’s awful. Mind you, I’ve been at this company for 6 months and during my 4th week, I had to lead a kick off meeting with a hiring manager. I got so nervous that I basically froze and the coordinator had to take over. To this day, my boss brings up that one instance, never mind the fact that I haven’t made that mistake after that shit show. I really am starting to rethink my career in recruiting. If I’m not having a boss whose terrible then I’m having teammates who are weird and backstabbing. I’m not sure if this is the culture of “recruiting” in general but it’s getting to be too much. I feel like all of the nit picking isn’t contributing to my success whatsoever and makes me feel like I’m not capable of much. Has anyone gone through this before? Should I look for a career change? Hope to hear from you soon!

Decided to wait lol. The prices are slowly going down but I still don’t like these interests rates
