The next level Interview process...


Being a recruiter in a multinational company will have to meet many number of candidates in order to choose the right fit.And in today's world where Human capital is being branded by the use of many employee welfare initiatives in a much competitive environment, the pressure of closing the right candidate in the given time-slot , becomes the key to be a successful corporate recruiter. But ho many of the corporate recruiters are using innovative things in the selection process ? After the resume screening/psychometric test we lad up with the interview process. 

And in Interview … it's the same old stuff. It's full of same old questions and same old challenges. It's time to learn from past mistakes and take to course correction now not later. Gone are the days when interviews focused only on knowledge and skills of the candidate. Very little was done to address key issues with respect to the Behaviors, Attitudes and Thinking Styles of candidates.

We need right people in the right job. Measuring knowledge, skills and aptitudes are just not enough. We should learn to measure the BAT – Behaviors, Attitudes & Thinking Styles.Yes, thanks to recent advances in the field of Personnel Psychology, Attitudinal interviews are the holistic solution. It is important for us to learn to unmask people right at the very beginning resulting in enormous savings for the organization in terms of both time and money. More than just the savings, BAT interviews help us get positive performance in the minimum possible time frame, resulting in quicker and higher productivity from candidates.BAT interviews are very different from the rest. "One size fits all" approach is discarded and replaced with a customized methodology designed to suit each and every single candidate. Making full use of psychological measurements with a battery of assessments, each candidate's individual profile is drawn with respect to core competency, job description, performance outcomes, heredity and environmental influences, upbringing, mental processes and the like.Questions are specifically designed to probe suitability based on the gap analysis between the candidate's behavior & attitude profile and the job description.It's amazing but true that you now have a true measure of each candidate's suitability mapping in front of you. Now for the first time you can actually chose best for the job instead of the best of the lot. The BAT helps you focus on the Competency SWOT of each candidate and enables you to customize your questions to suit each candidate. Hence it is next impossible for anyone to predict your questions in advance. For a change you learn to change to gain an internal view of each candidate and make a professional difference to your organization based on scientific KASH Analysis. (KASH – Knowledge, Attitudes, Skills & Habits).

Keep learning & moving..

Ek ghadi ki kahani...

यह चेन्नई मैं मेरी पहली शर्दी है ... हलाकि मैं पिछले साल भी यहीं था मगर मैं शायद इस जलवायु मैं ठीक से अपने आप को ढाल नहीं पाया था. आज कल यहाँ सुबह की नींद बड़ी मजेदार लगती है और बिस्तर छोड़ने को मन नहीं करता.पर क्या करें सुबह सुबह ऑफिस भी तो जाना है ना तो उठाना पड़ता है.हाला की मेरे ऑफिस की कार्यकालिनी समय सुबह ९ बजे से लेके शाम के ६ बजे तक है मगर मैं क्या कहूँ मुझे अपनी आप पे शर्म अति है ये कहते हुए की मैं रोज़ १०- १०.३० से पहले ऑफिस नहीं पहंच पाता था.और क्यों की मैं खुद मानव संसाधन बिभाग मैं हूँ तो मुझे बड़ा अटपटा लगता था और शर्मिंदगी भी लगती थी. खैर एक दिन मेरे अन्दर का शेर जाग गया अचानक और मुझे बोला के बेटा अब उठ जा और कुछ जुगाड़ कर. तो मैंने पिछले रविवार को ही बाज़ार गया और एक अलार्म वाली घडी लेके आया.वैसे उसकी कुछ आबस्यक्ता  नहीं थी क्यों के मेरे घर के पास वाली चर्च से हर एक घंटे मैं अलार्म बजता रहता है. मगर क्या करें कुछ करना जो था, तो मैने एक बजने वाली घडी ले आया और उसे सबसे अधिक आवाज में चालू करके सो गया.  सुबह ६ बजे जैसे ही वो बजा मैं उठ खड़ा हुआ. सुबह की शांत बातावरण मैं मु…

Odia , Odisha & its people.

After years I tried my hands in writing a letter in Odia and believe me it was difficult to write as the finger movement needed much to work on the paper to write the fonts. For your knowledge i should tell you that unlike English the letters in oriya are much complicated and need a better effort to write a good hand-writing. But let me tell you it was really tough to get something on paper,forget about the handwriting.But one thing is for sure my fingers remembered the letters so correctly that i was surprised at times when i wrote conjoint letters. It took me 20-30 minutes to write a full page letter expressing my thought at that time. I managed to get an average handwriting & one can only manage to read & understand what I wrote.

I remember my School Days when I used to speak , read & write in Odia only and read English as a subject in the class. When somebody spoke good English then, people used to admire him with great respect &considered English as a better lang…

After long in a divine dream he was told that Lord Vishnu can be seen in his best form in the state of then Utkala. The king then send Vidyapati to find & submit a report on Lord Vishnu. Bidyapati, after a very secret research got to know about Biswabasu & the lord Nilamadhaba , but upon request he denied to show him the way to Nilamadhaba. Failing to get the way to Nilamadhaba by hook or crook Bidyapari Decided to stay there and by pla…
