Finding An Ideal Recruit

The employees of an organization are its most valuable assets. An HR’s job is a vital one for this matter as he/she makes the most important decision of whom to select and whom to reject from the vast horde of applicants who apply for a post. Though different companies have different selection as well as interview processes, the basic principle remains the same i.e. to find the most competent and qualified person for the job. In such a case there are a few pointers which can be followed by a HR to arrive at a prudent choice.

Preliminary Research
As it is with any task, proper research is vital for this process of searching out an ideal candidate for a job. The interviewer should take out time and peruse the cover letter and resume of the candidate thoroughly before the interview. This would help the interviewer draw up some relevant questions about the applicant.

Make the Applicant Comfortable
Make the atmosphere friendly and approachable so that the interviewee feels at ease and is able to express himself clearly. In a high pressure situation like a job interview, candidates often get stressed and are unable to perform upto their potential. It is an interviewer’s responsibility to lighten the atmosphere and make it ideal for a free exchange of thoughts and idea.

Relevant Questions
The interviewer should try and get the interviewees to open up and express themselves effectively. As far as possible, questions asked should be open ended ones which encourage the interviewee to give a detailed reply. Also the interviewer should keep the interviewee’s other interests/hobbies in perspective and ask relevant question to arrive at a balanced decision. The body language of the applicant should be observed as they can be helpful in providing clues about the interviewee.

Lastly the interviewer should encourage the applicant to ask questions about the company, the work culture etc. All these points are a great help when it comes to choosing an appropriate applicant for the job.

Top Recruiters in India are now on a Hiring Spree

The global recession took a heavy toll on the global economy and many economies crumbled under the aftermath. India, however isolated from the adverse effects of the global recession, also felt minor tremors of the crisis. The hiring trends across the nations took a beating and pink slips became a common phenomena. Most of the leading companies in the country resorted to strict austerity measures and stringent cost cutting plans. As a result, many skilled and qualified professionals were under paid and overworked.

However, India witnessed quick economy recovery and soon it achieved an enviable GDP growth rate. Owing to this speedy recovery, the top recruiters in the country are now on a hiring spree. As the economy bounced back after the slump, the job market started getting better. The top-notch companies put ambitious expansion plans in place and started hiring skilled professionals to realize their goals. The biggest job churner however, has been the IT and the ITES sector. The BPO sector has provided myriad opportunities to the people and has witnessed tremendous growth in recent times. Hence, the sector has gone on a huge recruitment drive and offering lucrative packages to the clients as well.

Banking sector in India is not far behind, when it comes to recruitment of professionals. Many nationalized and private banks in the country have been conducting written examinations, to hire young talent into their organization. With ambitious expansion plans in place, the recruitment drive is bound to gain pace in the near future. In addition, aviation sector, which was the worst hit sector due the recession and surging oil prices, has also shown signs of redemption and is looking to expand its operations. Moreover, various new sectors have opened up a plethora of opportunities and with growing competition in every field, recruiters have myriad options to choose from.

Campus recruitment is a hiring technique adopted by many companies where you are selected even before you actually start getting ready for a job hunt. Here, you have a chance to grasp exciting and lucrative opportunities within the perimeter of your college campus. Campus recruitment is now being done on a large scale and is proving beneficial for both students as well the companies.

Though your own skills and qualifications will help you get through the selection process, yet there are certain tips to make an impactful resume for the same.

  1. Keep the resume precise and limited to one page as you are a fresh candidate without any experience.
  2. Do not be too experimental with your resume in case of margin, color and size of the font, size of the picture etc. Keep all the information clear and systematic.
  3. Your resume should reflect your objective clearly and there should not be any clutter in the content. Avoid writing vaguely about the mission as it would show less clarity in your thoughts. Change the objective according to the company you have applied for and suiting to the profile. Be sure of the objective as it presents the gist of your resume. If you are not clear on what you have written in your objective it is very likely that the recruiter will dump it.
  4. Always remember to mention your specialization on your CV. It makes it convenient for interviewer to decide on certain factors.
  5. Make sure that you write full name of your institution. There are recruiters all over from India and there it’s not always easy for them to know the abbreviated form of your institute.
  6. Let your resume be understandable by one and all so it’s important to take care of the language and arrangement of information.

Your resume is the first thing that goes to the recruiter hence it should be created with absolute accuracy to make them consider you for an interview amidst all the applicants.
