OUR BASIC RULES FOR CANDIDATES
In every Candidate we see an opportunity to try and find him a
satisfying career. As such, we follow some basic rules and etiquettes,
which are put down here. It is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT that you take the time
to go through this small note.
Our Procedures and Principles!!!
We are interested in working with ONLY STRONGLY interested
To us, a STRONGLY interested candidate is one who has taken the trouble to STRICTLY
follow the procedures we have evolved after years of experience in the
Recruitment Business. These procedures form part of EACH position
advertised by us at our Website as well as others'.
We believe in putting things as they are & not creating rosy
We will tell you the position as it is: the Salary Budget, the Challenges
and the Rewards. This is because we are aiming at a LONG Term relationship:
both with the Candidates as well as the Clients.
We seek your validation before forwarding your CV to any
Before forwarding your CV to any client, we will take your
approval. However we will expect you to be fair & truthful while
telling us about your previous application (directly or indirectly) if any
with the Client. We propose a Candidate to any position only AFTER he/she
has expressed CLEAR interest in the same AND a vigorous screening process
has been carried out by us.
Please note that given the EXTREME internet /e-mail clutter,
increasingly we as well as our Clients prefer to propose / consider ONLY
those Candidates that we have PERSONALLY met!! So we recommend that you do
spare some time and meet us with a prior appointment in our office.
What We Expect from our Candidates!!!
consider the position, before applying.
We undertake a LOT of efforts, time and expenses in screening CVs,
evaluating fitment, sending the Profile to the Client, following it up,
coordinating interviews etc. We appreciate very much candidates who
appreciate these efforts and are SERIOUS in their desire to get the
position they have applied for.
Only Resumes which mention clearly the position applied
against which they are applying, are in the Body of the E-mail (We do NOT
open any Attachments to minimize Virus Problems!!!) and give their Present
Salary will be evaluated against the specific position they have been
E-mail MUST establish within the FIRST paragraph your HIGH suitability and
interest for the position you have applied for. Otherwise, it will most
probably just be a waste of time for you and us!!!
Be FRANK with us!!!
We expect your application to be complete and true in all relevant details
such as Present Company and Job responsibilities, Present Salary,
References etc. If not we, at least our Clients are EXTREMELY competent in
checking these aspects out and any exaggerations / lies will only spoil
your chances, not brighten it.
Attend the Interview when Short-listed!
As said above, a LOT of efforts have been made by us to come to this stage.
In our experience, the Interview Panel normally does NOT sit again and
again and the Position generally goes to the persons who were present the
Follow the Etiquettes of Business!
Candidates who ignore some basic etiquette continuously surprise us! The
Consultant as well as the Potential Employer is ALSO a human being, just
like the Candidate! Make their tasks easier and you will only help
yourself. These etiquettes include, for example:
-Visit us with Prior Appointment only, or when we call you for detailed
-Attend the interview per planned and accepted schedule.
-If you can NOT attend the interview, advise us well in advance.
-If you can NOT attend the interview AFTER confirming your attendance to us,
take the trouble to advise BOTH the Client and ourselves as soon as
possible so that the Panel does not keep on waiting for you. We consider a
NO SHOW without such information to us/the Client after confirmation a
matter to be taken VERY seriously, please
-Give prompt feedback to us after the interview.
-In case you are made an offer, advise us immediately. Similarly, if you
have accepted the Offer, advise us immediately along with the date of
We strongly request all Candidates to bear the above aspects in mind while
dealing with us....
