Common Recruitment issues for Job-Seekers

路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽Expect Diamonds聽with Budget of Iron . No matter how talented candidate is or even no system to judge his/her talent聽just offer the iron which cuts employer at last.

路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽Interview Time strictly followed 聽in 3rd attempt , Guess what. Blame candidate that he/she not coming so candidate does have discipline who already came 2 times before on time and waited long hours.

& Many more…

Problems are just not from Candidate side but also from Consultants & Employers side too and if you make a list it will be big. Now if you look at the problems or Recruitment decisions , they are highly influenced by Internal & external environments.

Here , I am not complaining about Candidates聽or Client or Consultants . If you look at all complains & everyone’s issues – you will notice that all problems are majorly around raised by society & our social habits.

These all mentioned problems can be solved if we improve our society or social habits. Root cause of most recruitment problems are in our society only.

Let’s make it simple . if Input is best Output can be best. Company , Recruiters & Candidates are from society only. so if society improves , organization will improved.

For Example, If society wants free & cheap quality products , organization will start focusing on that because at the end it will be game of survival .

Improve our Social Habits

Time :聽For most Indians . We are habitual to late everywhere expect Movie time , Cricket time聽or Govt Job Interview this is applicable to HR people as well 馃檪

“Hidden Opportunities” in Time is called Luck , So Respect everyone’s Time

Use Smart Phone 聽but not Smartness :聽聽if Temple comes on the way we will notify to GOD but forget to notify person who is waiting for you though you have smart phone 馃檨

For many problems we can use little smartness (common sense) – use it.

Parents & Teachers & Boss Role :聽After 12th – Graduation is chosen by Father and Post Graduation chosen by Friends. Now In interview Candidate will say , “My Uncle said no for this Job”.

In Eng Or MBA Placement, Professors will define how much salary company have to pay, what salary student have to expect and college taught everything to students.聽Now what , Students searching for the Job.

Marketing professor who don’t know how to handle his own ego , Can’t teach how to negotiate with customer practically聽with pressure of Boss – who will not easily listen you , Customer – who will not easily given you money聽and listen your monthly target.

Parents & Teacher have very Important role and now both are influence youngsters to focus on money &聽Paper Skills . Same way in corporate , boss must built up strong human values.

Don’t surprise if they left you for money. Person should be a Good Character first then anything else.

Responsibility 聽is big game :聽聽For Government Job Interview – All Candidates are on time, No Salary negotiation, Yearly Off already counted , No Problem even if job is in far other City even for Girls who said NO for 5 KM away Job.

If you ask Candidate why would like to join Govt Job , many people would like to help country by taking High Salary, Full Benefits & No Target Commitments , No Responsibility & can do own business.

Everyone would like to become King & Super king & Leaders ( new word ) but society needs contributors – actual doers.聽Don’t blame government or organisation for every problems.聽Country made by People so companies as well.聽If you have opportunity – Take responsibility & 聽Go for solutions and contribute positively聽.

Respect聽:聽聽i.e. Fairness is key Attraction in our society. Many resumes are not fair enough but have a beautiful heart , or skills or Knowledge , Creativity So what ! No luck 馃檨

Don’t judge people by Outlook, Caste or Religion. Respect everyone.

There so many great points you can suggest here. You know your habits and thoughts and what your are contribute to society or organisation or country. We are connected in circle – our reaction of our actions will come back so these problems are. Invest to make Best people , rest will be made by the best.

Don’t聽make or just invest in startups which can multiple money but make or invest in something which can make better society. Change Starts from You only.聽Best of You
