Do people choose to be recruiters, is it a punishment, or a combination of both?

I've met some pretty highly skilled people who are recruiters, and it seems like it would be a waste just having them behind a desk unless an injury is keeping them out of their field. It doesn't seem like a job people would want to volunteer for, to me. No offense to any recruiters here. I know you... show more I've met some pretty highly skilled people who are recruiters, and it seems like it would be a waste just having them behind a desk unless an injury is keeping them out of their field.
