Employer Corner

How to make the right choice?

An organization thrives on its core values and the service it offers to the society. For an effective functioning, an organization requires the right kind of employee for the right role. Finding the right employee is a task in itself, which requires a systematic approach.

  • DEFINE THE ROLE
  • DETERMINE THE INNATE CHARACTER REQUIRED FOR THE ROLE
  • ARRIVE AT THE SKILLS AND RESPONSIBILITIES THE ROLE DEMANDS
  • RESEARCH THE EDUCATIONAL QUALIFICATION REQUIRED FOR THE ROLE
  • DETERMINE THE EXPERIENCE RANGE REQUIRED FOR POLISHING THE REQUIRED SKILLS.

With the above points one can arrive at the profile requirement of the prospective employee. Other important aspect which has to be decided beforehand is the SALARY OR COMPENSATION. Based on a company's budget and market rate, one has to arrive at a range - minimum to maximum for the average to the cream of the lot.

Based on the above specified systematic approach, the profiles can be shortlisted giving importance to the most important skill.

How to conduct an effective interview?

An interview is the first in-person meeting of the prospective employer and prospective employee. Here, an attempt is made at understanding the prospective employee better. A good interview can be divided into 3 phases to serve the intended purpose...

  • Opening Phase - It begins the moment the prospective employee steps into the interviewing room. Punctuality(keeping up the interview time), level of enthusiasm (from the body language), professionalism (by the greeting, attire and conduct) etc can be judged in this phase.
  • Active questioning Phase - Questions related to the role and the qualification stated by the individual can be asked in this phase. Care must be taken to see that the questions are not direct(which have a monosyllabic answer) and are descriptive which help in ascertaining the employee's worth. Non-routine or unusual questions reveal the employee's character well.
  • Final Phase - Once the employer is satisfied by the conduct of an employee, he can proceed on to this final phase in which the prospective employee is familiarized with the company policies and work culture and then the salary negotiation is done.

Beware Of Fake Profiles

As per an international survey, in the past 3 years about 40% of the job seekers are found to have lied in their resume in one way or the other. CROSS CHECKING of profiles and BACKGROUND CHECKING or credits checking and CHARACTER SCREENING for criminal records (especially while recruiting staff for educational and financial institutions) is as important as the interview itself. Neglecting this important part will be like compromising the safety and sanctity of the organization.

Job Seekers Corner

Multi Choice Recruitment Consultancy LLC, based on its vast and varied experience offers the following tips to its job seekers for placement in companies or organizations of their choice...

BEFORE APPLYING FOR A JOB - Read the job description and employee requirement to ensure you are neither under nor over-qualified for the job. Check whether the compensation stated by the employer matches your expectation.

AN IMPRESSIVE RESUME - A resume must not be a generic one. It must be JOB SPECIFIC where all the questions raised by the employer is answered. The cover letter must state accomplishments and targets reached in the previous job rather than merely stating the responsibilities of your previous role. Any appreciation or awards can be mentioned. Flowery text, smileys etc should be avoided. Proof read for grammatical and typo errors. Explain employment gaps in the resume if any (eg. sickness, maternity leave etc). Else, the resume may sound dubious. Mention references with contact numbers.

INTERVIEW TIPS - Although, a book is not judged by its cover....its cover forms the first impression and gives an insight into the book. Dress up professionally and be on time as it speaks about your seriousness towards the job and your punctuality. Do basic research as to what the company is in to, its work culture etc. Carry a positive attitude and be truthful about what you have to say. Answer to the question and avoid exaggerations. Mail in a thanks note or call up after you have done with the interview, as it leaves a good impression and shows that you are still interested in the job.

On a final note, if you are applying for a job through a placement agency, be sure to check its background, reputation and client list as there are many dubious agencies floating around.
