Hi...Prachi.
1. If a person in a notice period , then as a HR if you want to confirm them again then simply asked to that person whether they want to take there notice back or what are the condition because of that they want to leave the company. if they want to join again with some condition and company did not find any problem in that , then as a HR person you can again confirm that person.
2. If you call 100 people for interview its not compulsory that all the 100 person will come for the interview. If you call people that does not mean that you force the people that we call you then you will come for the interview. it depend on the person whether he want to come or not.
Dear Prachi Pathak,

FYI, Thanks.

1 as some candidates in IT have more than 2 or 3 months of notice period as an HR how you can confirm their joining after such long period??

Sorry, this question is not properly structured. Do you mean the candidate is going to join in the service of the organization and he or she presents their tentative about joining between 2 or 3 months?

2 if you call 100 people for face to face but only 15 people will turn up for that.. how u can manage source or what will u do in that situation.(no point of no. of openings, panel wanted to all the 100 people should be present for the round)

Your answer always should not be according to the panel concept. As a HR you should open the scenario as following;

1- Opening- is this necessary to call 100 people for 1 vacant post, or do we have multiple number of vacant job

2- Did we made the shortlist in a correct manner

3- How the job description and specification has developed

4- In case if all the candidates didnít appear in the interview, we might change our recruitment process method.
@netaji80
thank u for writing.
yeah first question was related to sourcing,they wanted to ask that you have selected a candidate whose notice period is of 3 month,after a 3 month how can u be so sure that he will join our company, how u can confirm his joining after 3 month of span??
my answer was I can only take follow up of the candidate or if there is buyout option,we can make him join immediately (if he is ready)
and yes panel was too harsh ..they wanted to know how u can turn up all the 100 people for face to face (refer 2 question) i said in my reply that how can I assure their presence ,its up to them whether they want to come or not.
Interviewers are living in heaven and this is earth. They have asked a question to test your thinking as they also know the situation in IT industry. There has never been 100% appearance in interviews.
