Creative / Art Recruiter


Hi, Blizzard Entertainment recruiting here. If you’re reading this, chances are good you’re a recruiter, so let’s talk a little shop.

You’ll drive the end-to-end creative staffing process by designing and implementing proactive strategies.  You’ll source and evaluate candidates, facilitate the interview and candidate selection process and ensure a superior candidate experience throughout.
