We are getting difficulties to find two right candidates for the sale profile. It is basically client acquisition profile for financial products and position based in Dadar, Mumbai.
We don't want to hire a HR agency right now but took a subscription from a job site < mon*********.com>. It is almost 2 months now, still we are unable find single candidate.
Question :
1. We are going to offer 15k take home + actual TA, Is it not fair salary for the profile ?
2. We don't have dominant brand presence but know name in mumbai's broking industry, is that creating this challenges to get the candidate?
3. It will great, If somebody can guide me to hire candidate...
Thanks & regards

Dear Anirban,
What is the target to be achieved in this role ? How is this role more competitive than what others are offering ?
Which is the group of job seekers that you are targeting ? The active or the passive one ?
Looking forward to hear from you !

Dear Anirban,
While throwing more light on the JD/JS and requisite competence for the very profile will make it all the more appealing even for the passive candidates. You must also specify if the candidate needs to be from the specified vicinity and the target threshold as said by (Cite Contribution).
Having said all this, I would also give consideration to all the time you've spent waiting for the righteous candidate. I suggest you should allow the local Placement Agencies to provide you with the shortlisted candidates. Now since the number of positions to close is small (i.e 2), you can pay them at per-shortlisted-candidates basis. This will be low on your pockets and also let you shun the tension off your shoulder in no time; hopefully!

Dear Sajal,
Thanks for the suggestion.
I have already post the JD. Please have a look.
But as i have mentioned initially we don't want to involve any Job agency.
It will be great if people from this group guide us to get 2 candidate.

Hi Anirban,
Local staffing consultants would be the easiest bet. They have the best network and know who is looking for the job. Having said that you should look at our product ( <link no longer exists - removed> ) where you can crowdsource talent!

Thankyou Shankar for mentioning it out. Let me connect Anirban to Vipul . He might be able to help. Would MBA-fresher be right for the job ? How strong would the communication skills need to be ?

Dear (Cite Contribution),
Above average Communication skill is particularly required for this profile. MBA fresher is okay but we are open for suitable graduate too.
It is nice to have this kind of support, thanks once again.
