Recruiters asked to work more cohesively with Corporates
Chennai, Jul 7 (UNI) Recruiting firms should improve its capability building techniques and must work accordingly, understanding the client's policies, practices and processes, said SASKEN Human Resources Director Srinivas Rao.
Addressing the National Conference on 'Partnering For Talent Search In The New Era' organised by Executive Recruiters Association (ERA) here today, Mr Rao said each recruiting firm should focus on certain areas and should be more professional than transitional.
" It is not merely developing a strong resume base of candidates, the firms should partner with the corporates, rather than providing a bunch of resumes", he said.
Mr Rao also called upon the recruiting firms to minimise the habit of overselling the candidates and focus more on integrity.
Speaking on the occasion, TCS Chennai Human Resource Head Ashok Sitaraman said about 60 per cent of intake takes place through campus recruitment and the remaining through the recruiting frims.
On company's future recruiting plans, Mr Sitaraman said the by instituting a programme called ' Academic Interface Programme', the company would visit institutions spread across the nation and would look into the competency of the institution before accrediting it for conducting campus recruitment.
He said the TCS would soon establish a 'Behavioural Orientation Programme' in certain selected institutions to train the students how to face interviews and professional etiquettes.
" Out of 51,576 applications only 18 per cent of campus trainees are made offers. Similarly, out of 86,213 applications about five percent direct trainees are made offers and two per cent of experienced professionals are given offers out of 499,688 applications", he added.
