Hello friends,
Today i want to discuss one incident which took place yesterday( 13.6.2009)
I hope all my HR friends/seniors and every citehrians take this issue positively....

Me and my friend came across a job vacancy...and we both decided to make a call and fix up an interview as it was clearly mentioned that prior oppntment needed.

Now my friend called up first for apointment :-the person on the line was lady....before listening anything she told my friend that just give her mob no and she will revert back to her.

Now it was my chance to make a call as this time i knew that might be she is busy in some work so i decided to make a call after some time .... i called after 1 hour on another no(3 nos were provided 2 was land line,1 was mob) again the same lady picked up the phone..i introduced myself very politely and as soon as i was about to ask for an oppointment she just asked me my name and told me that she'd call me back after sometime.

so i waited for a long time than i asked my friend "did she called u back" she replied not yet...

I just narrated the whole story cuz i wanted to know ur view about this.
If on the very 1st conversation jobseekers get such responses than what he/she shud do in such a situation.

after your replies and your opinions about this i will tell you what happened next...

Please don't misundersatnd me in anyway friends.:icon1:

look you have given a half baked cake,
there can be lots of assumptions reasons,
the reason for wierd acting might she already must have finalized someone, and just took your mobile no as a back up,, if the candidate whom they selected backs out they can call u for interview,
even i have many experiences like that,, will tell u sometime ,in relaxation

Please think from empoyer side,it may be possible that they have received appointment of so many persons beyond its expectation.
And they dont want to call more candidates today,
May be you can call by tomorrow and go for interview.

Hello Mr.sajid ansari,
I always think from employers side but now m fed up of this thing cuz....
i don't think that its jobseeker's need only...its also a employer's wish too who need a employees for his company....(good employees preferably skilled per the requirement)and than employers only behave like this
m not targeting anybody its just that like an employer seeks a right person for his company in a same way jobseekers too seek a good short Its not about their need only.

Hi Hardeep,

The problem is "we tend to assume a lot" - we all do that! Perceptions!

She must have been really busy. You never know, when there is like just one person handling everything, she must have been in the middle of so many other important work and MAY BE it was just not the right time.

You should have waited for atleast a couple of hours and called back. People are really busy when they say so.

And whenever they tell you - that interview results will be announed on monday/tuesday, there are umpteen reasons why it does not get finalized on the day it was earlier mentioned. Sometimes so many people are involved in the decision making process, that they will have to wait for some more time.

Sometimes, they would have felt that the position can go on hold for a while and can be finalized a week later (as something else more important ,must have popped up)..

Or its just that they were not satisfied with anyone so much - so thought they could wait for a couple of more days and see if they have a better person, and then take a call on hire / reject.

Even if the position is filled- they have no problem in telling you its filled! It does not make a difference to them or to anyone. for everything there is a reason behind, which most of it they may not be in a position to reveal it to you.

And such type of interviews (where you have to call and get appointment) - remember, its not one or two people calling them, its like in hundreds...!

You should have waited for more than a couple of hours and tried again, else you could have posted a mail. The last resort - would be going in direct and finding abot the interview (no harm!)

HI ash ...I totally understand all the reasons which you have mentioned.
I understand that its not one or two people who call for appointment but the thing is that why they have provided 3-4 numbers for fixing oppointment..afterall this is the task assigned to them to tell/guide each and every candidate who calls in terms of place,time...etc..etc
if in the very first conversation they behave like this tell me who wants to go for the interview....yaar..
It just that we shud respect each other,we shud guide cand properly so candi shud also feel good naa....that they going to right place.
And if she's really busy than she shud clear this thing to me in the very 1st conversation....after calling 2-3 times she clears that i'm busy..!than what's the sense to call her again n again.
anyways......i don't want to stick to this thing anymore.....your replies make me write again and again...
thanks ash u're nice person u know how to answer such questions.

good u dont want to stick to it anymore,
well again coming to your point you should have ignored her, and thanked god that you just wasted 2 rs for phone calls instead of going to interview place and wasting time n money in travelling, so just ignore ,there are many such type of SAMPLES in HR,
and mr ansari, why u uploaded the foto wit two beauties?
and my signature means taking risk for me is as easy as eating RUSK
now dont ask me what is RUSK,
