Need to change your employer ? May be these points can help you position yourself better

It has been years I am into recruitment and I have witnessed a drastic change in the way industry recruits and the ever changing trend in doing so. Here today we will discuss few best Recruiting skills those are quite popular today.
  • Job portal
This has occupied as the best source of resume status from all the recruiters today as this provides the best available junk of resumes as database. In India particularly this has been over  decade job portals have enjoyed the favourable source of resumes. But with time passing these portals too have matured. And the next step is not only resumes database but the real time availability of the resources is in style these days. That is where portals like LinkedIn and headhochos are gaining popularity. And corporates & recruiters too are checking the linkedin profiles for recommendations while selecting the right fit. - Hence maintain an updated Linkedin profile studded with recommendations.
  • Social Networking sites
With only 30 to 40% of total available resources have reach through the job portals and With the rise in the millions of Internet users and that to on mobile devices the recruiters has just another way to reach the potential candidates. Yes its your facebook page or twitter page wherein the recruiters are scanning. Hence suggest to respond to mails mainly in the inbox.

  • References
Effective recruiters always ask reference to the available candidates and they don't mind do following up for the same. They try to befriend the reachable candidate to reach the unreachable candidate through his network.  Hence spread a word to mouth about your looking out for new opportunity in your professional network, who knows who is impressed enough to refer you.
  • Blogging
With Many hosting sites offering free blogging opportunist candidate are well exploring it well and hence provide the corporate recruiters another way out to select them. So here the candidates are positioning themselves to be the chosen one.Hence it may be of useful for you to maintain a blog mainly with your professional work outs.
  • Seminars and conferences 
Unlike their basic nature to discuss budding issues on a profession or corporate world seminars and Conferences offer a platform where prospective candidates visiting card works for him. Hence attend the many free to attend seminars and even the paid ones as well. Needless to say it works for the executive hiring.

The above exert is solely based on my personal experience & observation during my recruiting career and are not based on any research paper.

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…

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.

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…
