HR Consultancy and Placement Is all about professionalism

How many of you think that HR placement agencies or consultants are just there to make money? This is misconception in most cases. One who has focused approach on the HR consultancy services will ultimately help the business even keeping away from money making techniques.

If you are a human resource professional you give priority to the services and keep business as secondary option. Real consultancy services closely work with their client understand their need, what they foresee, what are the core expectation. Mapping these requirement with candidates who in true sense match the requirement is the next step. Being a HR consultant you need to be fair in determining if the candidate projected is exactly matching requirement or not. The intension is not to line up number of candidates to showcase that you have a huge pool of resources available. It is all about lining up quality candidates who will qualify and get selected in all probability.

Being a HR professional the first step is to know the mindset of a jobseeker, what kind of roles and responsibilities they look for and what they are capable of. As by now you have already understood the requirement from the client, you just need to act as a bridge between the jobseeker and the company. A successful placement send a strong message to the company and you win repeat business.

Getting repeat business and word of mouth are two vital elements that can make a big impact on your business. With no false promises, keeping up with the deadlines, lining up quality candidates, eliminating the risk of bad hire, helps building your brand image in the market.

As said HR consultancy and placement is all about professionalism, if you [...]

What career is perfect for me?

“What career is best for me?” is a question that make most of us sweat and often takes our mind into hyper drive. Most of the time, our careers are preset by our parents and most of us walk the path to become what their parents have planned for them. But there are also who cannot decide which career is best for them. They bang their heads on walls trying to find out the answer, or try experimenting with different professions to find what they are best at. The result is that they either end up being frustrated or stuck in a profession that they would otherwise not even think of, had they had a choice.

Which is the best profession?
Which is the highest paying job?
What shall I do after my graduation or MBA? etc.

These questions are all linked. There is no such thing as a best profession or a perfect job or a highest job. It all depends on the individual and his inclinations towards the profession. And as for the question of highest paid job is concerned, it only depends upon the individual’s choice of what he wants in life. The answer to the question of best career depends on the individual’s choices.

Do what you love
In the words of a great scholar Confucius ,“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”. Loving what you do is the key to happiness and harmony at your work or doing what you love to do and converting it into a choice of a career will make your professional journey all a playground. You will never get bored or suffer job related stress because you [...]

What makes leaders different from others?

There has always been the question “Are leaders born or made?” The answer to this question is a rather paradoxical one. While we have the examples of famous personalities who had been leaders from adolescence, there have also been many who rose above all as true leader by sheer force of their determination. But, I am not discussing here whether a person become leader by birth or makes himself one. I am discussing the qualities that leaders posses which makes them different.
We all have certain behaviors and capabilities that differentiate from others, but a true leader has something extra. Ability to motivate and directing others and helping people grow in the own abilities is one of those skills a leader possess. Being a leader does not always mean that you are the leader at your workplace. Skills of a leader can be put to every area of life as a parent, spouse, a charity board member etc.
We certainly may have grown over time and learned many effective skills by experience but to identify the leaders in us; all that is required is an open mind.

Traits Every Successful Leader Must Have
Desire to lead.
If you do not want to lead other, you’ll always be uncomfortable in the role of a leader if you somehow manage to get yourself into one. Without a desire to lead, you may face difficulties out of your ‘comfort zone’ and you may resist this change and won’t put efforts to acquire the skills required to become a leader. You will struggle with daily work and your team will sense it and ultimately, you might lose their respect as their leader and the situation might become chaotic.

Commitment to [...]

How to even the odds in a slow job market?

There has been continuous decline in the job market because of the slowdown. Organizations at this time are hiring only selective individuals or professionals who are skilled and exceptional. Below are some of the things a professional should take care of while searching for a job or a job change.

Create you resume professionally
Create your resume based on the job description as given in the advertisement. Create the resume well and look at the resume with the perspective of a potential employer. Try to keep the resume short but effective, because at the end of the day, it is not the length of the content, but the depth of it, that will make the difference. If needed, you may take the help of some professional resume creator service or a placement consultant which provides such a service.

Research and Analyze
Analyze the job ads and identify the skills that are hot in the market. If the technical skills that are listed are the skills you posses, then your chances for getting shortlisted are increased. Search for the job openings that match the skills you have so you can better represent yourself in interviews confidently. It is always best to stay updated with the current technology.

Groom your Soft Skills
You are not the only one who would be shortlisted for an interview. There would be others too, and a few would probably be more experienced and skilled too. Having superior and impressive soft skills might be the one thing that can make the difference. Individuals who are more confident, articulate and team players hold better chances of getting selected. Work on your communication skills and other soft skills to make an impression.

Be ‘Visible’
Try to be [...]

b) It depends on the responsibilities of the job.

Avoid putting a number infront of interviewer as that might prove to be a bottleneck at the time of negotiation.
