The Role of the Recruiter in an Effective Recruitment and Selection Process

When we talk about the effectiveness of the recruitment and selection process, most of us think about assessing the candidate's competences.
In my opinion, the result or success of the selection process does not depend on the candidate's skills and experience only.
We need to also consider these procedures from the point of view of the candidate:
- Does the recruiter's behavior make any difference?
- What is the impact of stereotypes?
- How can incorrect HR practices influence the decision of the candidate?

So my question is: in what ways does the recruiter affect the recruitment and selection process?
