Nowadays, candidates apply jobs through various job portals. The first mistake they do is not updating their resumes before applying for jobs. They would have created resume long back and it will be used for all the jobs. There would have been some changes happened like acquired new skills, changed location, would have changed the jobs, etc. When new employer sees the resumes he will assess the candidates based on out-dated information and he may not call them for interview.
The second most common mistake the candidates make is not mentioning the current salary, expected salary, notice period and location. These are very important factors based on which the employer will make the decision to call or not.
The other part is when a candidate sees a job advertisement sometimes he might know the company details since the advertisement is given by the job consultants. These consultants generally will not disclose the company name for which they are recruiting. Finally when the candidate gets the details of the company, he may not want to attend the interview due to various reasons like he may not like the industry, may not want to go for proprietor companies, etc.
To overcome these, we have developed a new concept of HR-Connect where Recruiter and Candidate chat each other, discuss online and if both agree all the terms, can attend the next round thereby saving lot of time for both Recruiter and Candidates.
