Today, September 4th is Global TA Day, a day dedicated to celebrating all of those working in Talent Acquisition around the world.
In honor of this great day, we've compiled a list of GIFs that we think perfectly sum up the highs and lows of a life in recruiting - from talent sourcing to onboarding and beyond, we're raising a glass to you all.
1. When someone entices you into your first TA job with promises of glamor and fun
2. That first time you post a job ad and think your work is done
3. When those first applicants start to come in and you're waiting for the perfect candidate to fall in your lap
4. When you realize this is going to be a lot harder than you thought
5. When you discover chrome extensions
6. When you finally find that perfect candidate
7. But they play hard to get
8. When you need to play therapist to your candidates
9. When you sell your friendship to sell the job
10. Making sure the contract gets signed
11. When your candidate finally becomes an employee
12. And when the next rec lands on your desk
13. When Global TA Day comes around and you know you're part of a huge community
