Dead-Ends in the Recruitment Process: The Need for an Updated CV
Traditional job portals and CVs are often too slow to keep pace with the changes in the jobseeker’s life.
When looking at jobseekers for roles in the sales, hospitality or BPO sectors, it’s important to come up with a document that is not only accurate, easy to read and comprehensive, but one that also stays updated to keep up with the jobseeker’s movements and changing needs.
Let’s say you’re looking to hire someone for your sales team. After spending much time on several job portals, the only CV that you find somewhat worthwhile is that of a salesperson located in New Delhi, selling two-wheelers at a showroom and earning Rs. 10, 000 every month. There’s not much more you know about this person (given that a self-created CV is not the most reliable document, anyway). However, you decide to track him down to see if he matches your idea of a good salesperson.
By the time you manage to reach him, you find out that he now no longer sells two-wheelers but works as a supervisor in a hospital kitchen for which he is paid Rs. 15,000 every month.
He no longer fits your bill and you realise that you’ve wasted your time on this person, without even knowing whether or not he would have been a good choice for the job. Only think of how many such ‘dead-ends’ you come upon in the recruitment process!
Not only do jobseekers fail to update their CVs regularly, many of them do not even have the requisite skills and resources to create an effective and accurate CV in the first place. That’s where MeraJob’s SmartProfile™ comes in.
