We decided to hire a Technical Manager. This was a critical position & we did not want to take any chances. So we decided that money should not be a factor. We decided to give a Newspaper advertisement, publish the Jobs in Job boards, and allocate the assignment to Talent Search Partners.


We received 100’s of resume. After a pain staking shortlisting process, we identified 5 people who were promising. We had a telephonic & called them for Interview.
After the interview, we were buoyant that we identified the ideal fit for the position. It has cost us dearly and took almost 45 days going through the process. But still, we were all happy of the outcome. We had the ideal Candidate for the position who will fit into the position exactly.


I called him up to discuss the offer & make him comfortable with our Company & its policies. After going through the entire formality – I said, “You know, we have spent $30000/- to find you. Our company stops at nothing to get the right Candidate”. Our next Technical Manager was impressed.


But what he told me stunned me, “All you had to do is go through your email box couple of months back. I had applied for a vacancy with the company”


PS: This is an imaginative story. But I am sure you will understand the underlying fact behind the story.
- Maintaining a Searchable Resume database will surely help you recruit faster & cheaper!


Thanks for your time folks, the story is over… go back to sleep, psst, I am sorry… go back to work!

An eye opener story for those who post vacancies, receive applications but then never bother to keep a track. Untill now, I was one of them. But seriously, I've learnt a good lesson today.
Thanks.

I like the sentence, 'I have taken it up to help recruiters opt for it.'
Actually, Priya has sent me the proposal for RecruitPro. Have yet to go through it to have a feel of it.

on the one hand where it might amuse ppl on the other hand it really true that generally CVs sent to companies keep lying like trash in bin, hardly anyone bothers to keep count of it.If done properly it would be really gr8 practise and hence would help the HR in ever aspect ,it be money or the pain.

Hi profession12345,
Thanks for the comment. Instead of going to each post and putting your message, why don't you put up a message seperately. It will be much more helpful.

Dear Sunil,
Greetings for the day ahead!!!!
In stead of thanking Mr. Shankar about a good post, you have taken it upon yourself to expose the nasty nexus between HR manager and headhunters.
While posting on a public forum , you should be careful. There is no point generalizing for which you don't have enough evidences or precedents. You must go through benefits of recruitment outsourcing (There are many post w.r.t. that on CiteHR), before writing something like this.
Hope you get the message.
