Horses for Courses! Do we get them, today?
It is just about time that the current recruitment system is assessed for its efficacy. Let us take the example of a Job Title ‘Project Manager’. There could be thousands of CVs floating around with same job titles. The skill set is assessed through a number of keywords. Also, Recommendations on the social networks are keywords centric and could be influenced by interpersonal relations. All in all, screening stops at keywords. Are keywords insightful, enough?
Let us take ‘Project Transition’ as a sample keyword. The keyword needs to be dug further to understand; type of documentation, the level of documentation, location of client team, work cultures operated in, the type of knowledge transfer, the kind of handovers made or any parallel project transitioning activity. This level of detail can help the recruiters choose different person for each of the following 3 job requirements:
- Project manager in IT to set a green field operation in gulf region
- Project manager in Asia-Pacific region for transitioning a single project
- Project manager to relocate to the USA on a steady state project for next 3 years
The recruiter is deprived of such vital insights about the candidate’s profile. Besides, isn’t it late to get these insights from personal interviews and not at screening stage? The core issues that spring up from this brief assessment of the current recruitment ecosystem are:
“Can we better define as to what we are looking for, before the screening stage?”
“Can the specifics be brought out at the screening stage, rather than in the interview?”
“Can we avoid reading the typical 3-4 paged long CVs?”
