One reason can be that the MNC first conducted telephonic interviews for all suitable candidates.As it is an MNC so lot of candidates would have applied for that particular post .So telephonic interview happened for all those suitable candidates and the company is now calling the shortlisted candidates for personal interview.Another reason can be that the hiring decision for the particular post would have been put on hold for some reason.When HR got the nod then they called your friend.Whatever be the reason it is always advisable to go well prepared for the interview.

i would suggest before deciding anything on company´s behalf first check wether they are a domestic company looking employees for there new unit or they are international company looking employee for there indian unit.

its a general procedure now a days that they collect information online, from recritement company´s etc.. then they call short list & wait once they are ready to strt the units they call for final rounds. and it really needs time. like in my case i knew the company everything was final my name was selected but it still took them six months just because the unit was started.

so u have to know the story from both the sides before deciding anything like higher ctc or quitting.

last but not the least for RAVI i dont feel if somebody is stupid enoughf to paly games of keeping expected new joiness on hold, we r more stupid to call them CROOKS. i dont want to hurt u but we should be always polite for which hr people is always known DIPLOMATIC ANSWERS

HR People are Crooks?

What a nerve for this individual! I see a boastful and conceited person behind such a statement. And he may still be living in the past when people had to "suck up" to managers and HR managers in particular. Come back to earth. Live in the 21st Century.

I have been in HR Management for over 30 years and have risen to the level of a Strategic partner with corporate, national, and international scope and growth. This I have achieved by valuing people and contribution adding value to people through sensible human resources practices.

For a moment sit back and this... could this particular have been like this: Interview concluded, candidated short listed in the order of: (A) Best suited Lowest Pay (B) Best suited Medium pay (C) Best suited High Pay

Imagine you are called back for the second interview... your are the person (C) Best suited High Pay

What is your opinion of the HR person now?

In many organizations, the HR person is a "service provider" to other managers. They have to match each candidate as required by the user department. And that too within the constraints of budget. etc.

So don't shoot the messenger.

Even I call some candidates after 1 or 2 months gap.
Some times the situations are like this.
May the position was filled and it is open again so HR will call those who were telephonically passed at that time but were not asked for personal round as the position gets closed at that time.

Hi, Mr. Ravishankar,
I totally agree with Pournima. She has explained the process very well. The most important thing is to receive an opportunity. Even if u are not jobless but u r looking for a better place Right?
And begin urself in HR how can U talk about HR People like this??
If you know everything than u should understand everything and help people make right decision for there career and not misguide them......
Before asking high salary one should know there own capabilities and ask himself if he is worth of that or else he will make fool of himself and loose a Good Opportunity.

Thanks & Regards

When a person receives a call after gap of 2 months, there may be N number of reasons but I feel most important thing is a he has received call again. So take it as positive thing & if he really interested for the job profile then should attend interview. Some times it happens that management takes decision to recruit a person for some post but after some period because of some reason that vacancy can be kept on hold, in that case such things happen. So it is always not true that some body was appointed & now left & now again they are searching for that position. So I feel to get some idea about the situation, a person should attend interview..After all attending interview for good jobprofile will not get waste...
Well done Purnima!!!
i truly appreciate Purnima's point of view. A true HR professional who has been handling recruitments very well know how the entire structure flows.
She is absolutely correct that a position might take a week and a position might be delayed for month. Candidates presume that the delay is from the HR side, which in general is not.
The can be many reasons for the delay.
And it was truly shocking to read that HR are management crooks.
Humble request to people who have such perception against the HR profession to understand the true meaning of "HUMAN RESOURCE".

Well, when i saw the whole convewrstaion above, i found Mr Ravi a bit reluctant to the fatc how HR r\literaly works in
well Ms. Punima had given the best answers as for all. hats off@
and to you mr ravi.. using langugaes to suport is dam easy but one should not as it shoes the true picture of what noe is self@
So many have listened your talks but had gained a bad image overall.
think b4 u speak u must have heard but for HR : think b4 u write also appllies:

Hi, i do agree with purnima and other guys who are opposing the statement of Mr. ravi shank. ravi one thing u just remember being a part of HR forum how can u criticise HR manager, do u knw on wat basis the candidate will be selected, now a days every organisation needs not only talented pelople, they r looking for multi talented people who will become a valuble asset of the company in future.so HR has to select an effective talented guy, for this HR needs to take many strategic decision, he cant takes the decision blindly, it takes some times to go through the process of selecting the right candidate for the right job.
My only comment I have to say is that I am saddened to read that some users think that HR people are 'Management Crooks'. How unobserved and misunderstanding you people are.

My fiancé is a HR manager and I am a Commercial Manager - anybody in these positions will agree that each situation calls for a different approach and every vacancy requires a specific candidate for that role.

Sometimes people don't work out which is why new employees will usually have 3 - 6 months probation to complete before being offered any decent role. This is so the company and the candidate can decide whether they wish to continue the employment beyond these terms, otherwise we hire again for the same position.

This happens more than you might think as a lot of people can 'Blag' their way through an interview but do not deliver when they put into the position.

Far from what is common belief between the under achievers of this world, you cannot 'play the game' with tricks and insider knowledge - you get to where you are going through genuine determination and drive, you certainly do not influence your success amongst prospective peers by making sweeping, ill informed statements.

Please think more carefully before broadcasting your opinions about HR and management people unless you are sure that you understand what you are talking about...
