rajajeevankumarHello All, Greetings!! Just wanted to understand as to how Indian HR perceives job hoppers. If the profile of the prospective candidate looks like he is a compulsive job hopper, would you still be considering him suitable for the position or at least make efforts to find out the reasons behind job hops if he is an ideal candidate who does not just have the required skillset to execute the job at hand. But, also has an impeccable academic and professional record with awesome functions executed.
If you were to provide advise with respect to the situation for the incumbent- What would that be? In terms of Resume/CV/Professional Dossier's creation, in terms of tackling the interview panel with questions to probe on the longevity of the associate with any given company.
Thanking you all in anticipation that you would consider this as it is coming from a desperate job seeker who is a job hopper. But, a genuine candidate with NO deliberate intention to do it all the time.
V.RaghunathanHello Rajeevan Kumar,
You have posed an interesting question.
An interview provides equal opportunities for both parties.
One wants a good candidate.
The other's expectation is to get the job.
Even in the best of conditions, any interview panel will be reluctant to consider a job hopper.
However if they are desperate to get a candidate and they can't find anyone else, he may get a chance.
As far as the candidate goes it is purely a mathematical chance for him.
According to me during the interview he can be frank and brief about what he wants to say.
