Do you think there is an issue of talent shortage in India ? How is it impacting the hiring process ?
There is so much talent in India that it is over flowing and reaching other countries.
Its only that we have less opportunities and the chances of growth are less.
Though things have started to change but still the pace is slow and not what is desired.
There is also problem with the candidates who are talented but they do not know how to reach the organisation that will value their worth.
Being rejected in couple of interviews or jobs they move to totally unknown world. Engineers are working in accounts, HR people are working as receptionist, Hotel management candidates are working in Pharma Sales, all odd combinations are present. Its problem with companies as well as candidates. Companies hire candidates that match their budget, irrespective of their skills and experience, same ways candidates adopt for jobs that come their way.
Recruiters and placement consultants must be worst effected . And this leads to never ending recruitment process.

I agree with Excelencia Skills.There is talent in India. But the shortage is felt for various reasons. Firstly the hiring managers in many cases are not adept at understanding the core competencies required for a job and mostly go by the reputation of the institutes or the articulation of the candidate in the half-hour interview, mistaking apples for oranges. Secondly the candidates themselves are confused about what they are good at it and end up choosing wrong careers. Thirdly as Excelencia says, most of them do not know how to discover an employer who values talent and the employers also do not know how to meet talent.The recruitment agencies who act as a connecting link between the candidate and the employer either short of that special talent who can spot talent from the heap or do not invest enough in research.

Great question ! You see in today's time talent management professionals need work on initiating leadership skills among the members of an organization. Check this out: "Effective Ways To Revive Talent Management In Asia" I found it to be most informative on this topic.
In India we are not using the latest technologies like online interviewing (https://www.intervuelive.com/) for hiring candidates. With this platform candidates can face interviews even if they are at distances.
