doondi reddy

works for a Pvt Ltd Company
I would like to know why most of the Hr's don't give feedback.
But before interview they call 100 times to confirm everything.
If i take my life as example ; Am i 26 years old and with god's grace and parents blessings and Education help am all ready to digest that i lost in an Interview.
Especially with Consultancies am too mood off to receive their calls.
Give me your view,
Am not writing this with Frustration,
i just wanted to know whether those Hr people i came across are Lazy or so Good like my mother, not to disclose my failure with me .
Good day!!

Hi Doondi,

I can understand what you feel when u do not receive a call back/feedback after giving in for Interviews.

These are practices which needs to be followed by every recruiter. Source candidate find their level of interest, schedule interview and follow up on the presence for the interview, After interview receive feedback from candidate and later inform the candidate regarding the results if shortlisted the process continues till the candidate is either selected/rejected. Well established companies have HR recruitment software (good ones).The actually generate feedback automatically once the status is updated on the software.

What I said so far is best practice.

Now to reality.

Most of the recruiters are over loaded with work as they work on multiple job openings of different skill sets at the same time and they also coordinate with their clients. Most frequent problem faced by recruiters they need to present more candidates to the client as the recruiters are in the need to get one of their candidates selected which brings them revenue. Similarly multiple recruitment vendors are working with same company for the same position.

The cycle of fault begins here. the recruiter in the client end responds saying we would like to see even better candidates, not very satisfactory or at times no feedback, they simply say we want to interview more candidates. Now the external recruiter(the consultancy guys) are not clear of the status and hence they focus towards getting revenue so they start sending more and more resume until a candidate is shortlisted and selected/or till the company says the position is closed. During this process recruiters mostly do not reply to their candidates who have been interviewed. Few of them don't just find the time to give feedback as they think if they don't call back its understood by the candidate that he/she is not selected. (bad practice).

Some keep the candidate on hold hoping they can use the profile later.

These are some of the reasons.

It would be good for you to review your resume and also read blogs related to interview and then do the necessary changes if required. Call your interviewer and ask for feedback, this will actually make the interviewer understand that you are interested in this job.

Hi Doondi,
What Getsie, has stated is absolutely right, they are over loaded with work. But how ever busy you are I feel you could spare half hour of your daily time to update the candidate's of the status. He could also send a standard mail for this purpose.
This is a must, because the candidate may loose another opportunity just because he did not get a feedback.

A convenient method for the companies is to publish on their websites the list of those candidates who make the grade for a job & ask all those who appear for the interview to visit their website. This will automatically inform those not in the list that they have missed the boat. Well, to cater for the situation that some of the selected candidates may not join, one can always publish a list of wait-listed candidates who will be individually informed about the date of joining.

If Recruiter or HR or any technical panel says we will get back to you this mean your reject. but some thing what will happend in reject they will also shortlist based upon the needs..
All the Best
