Refreshing Jobs – It’s Automatic, It’s Easier!

As we have observed over time that recruiters sometimes visit the website just to refresh the job they have posted recently. So, just to ease off this iteration and provide you with a comfortable experience with the site, we thought of automating this process too, providing you with "Recurring Refresh". With this feature added in the Job Posting forms, and in the Manage Jobs Section, the Users can set automatic Job Refreshes at predefined Time Intervals without even visiting the site. First, you need to set the Recurrence Pattern to Weekly, Fortnightly or Monthly, to define the... Read More

Shortlisting Applications Just Got Easier!!

We know that recruiters spend a lot of time to painstakingly go through each of the hundreds of applications that come in to the Inbox. In order manage those applications better we've only gone so far as to set a rule in Outlook to directly send responses coming for a particular job into separate folders. But is there more that can be done? For instance, if there was a way to quickly decide which application is worth a view, and which one is not, without opening an e-Mail, that would significantly increase the productivity of a recruiter. With our two new features, ‘Customize Subject... Read More

Job Posting: Rejection Criteria

The criterion based on which a company rejects a resume is one of the central aspects of screening and is called the REJECTION CRITERIA. Accordingly it is most imperative that the Job Posting aims to cover these aspects in the appropriate way possible. Some of the common forms of rejection criterion are: 1. Candidate should not be more than "35years old" or candidate should have a "minimum" of 15 years of experience. 2. Knowledge of the local language (Tamil) is a must. 3. Candidate should be open to travel and job relocation. In fact, I firmly believe Rejection criteria should... Read More

Job Posting: Tips (contd.)

The last one is Candidate's Profile. This is definitely the most important one since an accurate description will attract the most appropriate candidate. Candidate profiles must be clearly categorized between what I would call the Must have, preferable and desirable parameters. What do I mean by each of these categories. MUST HAVES This is the mandatory stuff. The parameters which the candidate has to compulsorily fulfill to be considered for the job. For e.g for the role of a Software programmer at Microsoft the candidate had to be an engineer with a major in either computer science... Read More

Job Posting: Tips (contd.)

Now Job Description is another difficult one. In recent times organizations have pretty much stopped creating job descriptions, making it even more difficult to come across a good one. A job description is a "Pen Portrait" which should help the potential candidate to "Visualize" the job - in a manner that is pleasing. At the same time job descriptions cannot be a play of words, providing no clarity. Job Descriptions should clearly explain the following: 1. The Key Result Areas - what is the individual expected to be delivering and will be assessed upon. Note: KRAs also tend to be... Read More
