Hi, I am a Recruitment consultant from a tier 3 city.I find a Disconnect between the recruitment styles & strategies as adopted in Metro cities or tier 2 & in tier 3 cities or lower. In metro's opportunities are abundant. There are all the ‘fancy names’ & the ‘to die for job profiles’ & offcourse ‘fulfilling salaries’. In tier 2 cities there is a spillover of the metro profiles. Some posts/profiles are duplicated companies open up their additional units in these places & are willing to compensate on the salary part. But in tier 3 cities, only the bare necessary job profiles exist, all the companies have limited workforce & the salaries are just about average or atleast not too fancy. The Disconnect now is that every job seeker from tier 3 cities is very aware/ in awe of the companies/profiles/salaries of the metro’s. Hence a bench mark for the job seekers is set pretty high, which is fairly difficult to get compensated in his hometown. At the same time a majority of the local job seeker is not willing to go & explore opportunities in metro’s. Hence what is left is limited opportunities/limited scope & a lot of frustration. It is very difficult to explain to a local candidate why aren’t their core Jobs in a small town. May it be core finance or HR or R&D or Marketing or Advertising. Because this jobseeker has gotten into a particular course with this point of view; of getting into the core sector to either achieve decent heights at the filed of his/her choice or earn a hefty pay package with unlimited growth. I face this as a major issue while recruiting people around or just plainly counseling Job seekers. I would like to take opinions, thoughts, views, from all of you which might be complimentary or contradictory on this issue. Note: Just to clarify my point further I would like to illustrate Metro's as Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata. Tier 2 cities as Pune, Chandigarh, Ahmedabad, Nagpur, Jaipur, Madurai, Lucknow. Tier 3 cities as Nasik, Kanpur, Salem, Aurangabad, Mysore, Surat, Bhopal etc.

Hi All,
I am now in Bhubaneswar, Orissa and trying to gauge the mood of potential recruits from here.
It is true that most people in tier 3 cities would like to remain in their comfort zone, unless they are in a location in close proximity to a metro. For instance a person from Mysore could be open to Bangalore or a person from Durgapur could be open to a job at Kolkata.
Similarly, companies seem to prefer employees from the metro location itself, as such employees seem to be more acclamatizd to urban environs , do not face problems in acco etc and are perceived to be more stable.
Your views and comments solicited.
