Dear Seniors! Hope all r doin' gr8.

Iím working in a Pre Engineered Buildings manufacturing company which is new to the P.E.B industry (which itself is lately developing concept in Indian market). As part of our expansion process we have started manpower recruitment of various profiles.

However, itís been a great difficulty in finding candidates of Sales Profile for our company. Atleast those who meet the selection criteria are reluctant even to attend a personal interview showing different excuses. Some say that they are comfortable with their present job; some say that they are not currently lookiní for a change, and some indirectly hinting lack of interest in our company!!

More worried thing is our management is particularly keen to close the selection of Sales Engineers at the earliest, since they consider the Sales Profile as a base for the companyís expansion and establishment in the market.

I brought to their notice about the problem, and proposed a couple of action points like, A) Hiring freshers in the industry and train them; B) Redesign and develop our website, so as to give a much professional look (since Iím not satisfied with our companyís website appearance), but in vain.

To more worsen my situation, I got a target date(which is almost nearing fast) to complete the selection of Sales Engineers, in turn!!! PlsssssÖ. suggest me an appropriate advice how to act and come successful out of this tough situation.

Thanking you and anticipating your reply at the earliest.

Dear Friend,
Visit some construction sites of your area, where you can directly intermingle with low-salary engineers with the high interest for a change.
Just try to visit the site under the banner of C/D grade contractors.
Happy hunting.

Workplace Assessment and Training

In this difficult financial climate, people are reluctant to change jobs and give up the sense of security they may feel in their current position.
Your company is new and not well established in the market place, so people will be nervous about applying for jobs with you. Somehow you need to reassure prospective employees that the company is well funded, has exciting prospects and will be around for the long haul.
Also your job profile fails the basic test - WIIFM - What's in it for me?? Why should someone come and work for your company? Money alone won't cut it.
If management are imposing arbitrary deadlines about hiring staff and not ensuring they get the RIGHT people for the job, then that rings alarm bells for me and straight away I would identify the company as one I would NOT want to work for.
