Hi All,

I am trying to set up my own recruitment firm, I have worked for recruitment before and have overall 10 yrs of experience in HR Generalist.

Now I have got contract of hiring 12 receptionists for a Healthcare Clinic in Mumbai. Salary offer is 15000 to 25000, Any graduate, should be very good in english communication.

I am working for it for past 1 month - but no hopes till now.

I have tried database search from timesjobs, have contacted more than 500 and possible candidates via email and calling, but most of them are not interested for clinic.

I have posted in more than 50 groups in facebook, but again no responses.

I have also posted job in many free job posting sites, but no responses yet.

I get some but they are not good in communication skill.

Now I am directly calling hospitals and clinics and asking for the receptionist and leaving my mobile number so that they can call back.

But hardly anyone is calling back.

My request to seniors to guide me - if I am mistaking somewhere in searching receptionist OR I must leave this offer.

Your immediate response will really help me likeminded people in citehr.

Thanks in advance.

Sanjukta, today most candidates are not serious in taking up a career because they are a confused lot. for example say the following "Our client is a fast growing Healthcare Chain". You have to sell the opportunity to the candidate to make it look interesting

by the way, walk-in to some of the clinics or hospitals that are in the locality near to that of your client and try to speak to the nurses or other staff there, they may be able to recommend people to you. Hope this helps

Hello Sanjukta,

Put yourself in the candidate's shoes/feet & ask YOURSELF....will I say Yes IF someone else asks you the same way you are now asking? If the answer is No, then figure-out ways HOW YOU would respond positively & REPEAT it with those you are talking to.

This is what Fred means when he says 'You have to sell the opportunity to the candidate to make it look interesting'.

First & foremost, STOP offering them another job. SHOW them WHY this job is better than their present one. For this, you first need to be clear on the Pluses & Minuses of the openings you have vis-a-vis those of the candidates you are speaking to.

Even though you haven't mentioned HOW you are projecting/presenting the openings, MOST LIKELY your body language COULD be suggesting that it's YOUR interest you are taking care of. Would YOU respond when someone else speaks to you & you are able to see thru that it's THEIR interest they are catering to & NOT your's?

This applies ACROSS THE BOARD for any position or level in your field.



All the Best.

Dear Sanjukta !!
We fully endorse the views expressed by Mr. Tajsateesh that 'You have to sell the opportunity to the candidate to make it look interesting'. First & foremost, STOP offering them another job. SHOW them WHY this job is better than their present one.
Try to make the prospective candidates understand why the present opportunity is better, after doing a through research of this job opportunity. It may be true that some the candidates may not be interested in a particular Job opportunity. But it remains a fact it may not be difficult to search suitable candidates in Mumbai Mahanagar.
Ultimately even if it becomes difficult to search the Candidates, try to evaluate the reasons & discuss those reasons with HR head & Management of the Company. We hope some positive solution will emerge.
You may have to put in some more hectic efforts to search suitable Candidates.

Dear Fred, Ts and Jatin
Thanks for your explanation, I have made a note of three things :
I have to work more harder to break the ice.
Have to sell the opportunity to the candidate to make it look interesting.
Put myself in the candidate's shoes/feet & look at the job offer.
Thanks a ton for your valuable inputs.
Have a great day.

Hello Sanjukta,
It's rewarding that the inputs by the members are useful to you.
However, a slight mid-course correction of your Action-plan: Instead of 'I have to work more harder to break the ice', suggest make it 'I have to work more SMARTER to break the ice'.
The difference is just that you begin to evaluate every step/action of yours 'along the way' & do mid-course corrections to refine your methods & steps to ensure the end-result.
Sometimes, the attempt to work 'harder' can be MISUNDERSTOOD by others [in your case, the candidates] as a suspicious attempt to brainwash them into accepting YOUR point-of-view.
All the Best.

Dear Sanjukta,
In your second post, you have written that:
I have made a note of three things :
I have to work more harder to break the ice.
Have to sell the opportunity to the candidate to make it look interesting.
Put myself in the candidate's shoes/feet & look at the job offer.

You need to add one more point in your working style and that is promptitude. After your first post, four senior members of this forum had replied. However, your acknowledgement to their reply has come after 79 days! Asking a guidance on public forum and then abandoning it does not behove well. Members of this forum provide selfless services. Therefore, speedy recognition of their selflessness is your obligation. Hope you keep this in mind.
Thanks,
