Recruisians Speak


The learning is immense throughout the 9 years working at Recruise. As I started interacting with a lot of people and clients on daily basis, I developed strong communications skills. I learnt to build positive body language and speak positively often, to keep myself and my team motivated. Improved on my listening skills to build better relationship, being pro-active, reliable, willing to learn as and when required. Worked on multitasking, time management and problem solving skills as we juggle with all the priorities for the day. Progressed on my team management skills with a small team since 2014 to managing the entire Bangalore center.

We don’t need prior experience , given that my previous work experience was limited to service delivery and Operations Management roles, I worried that my future career options would be severely limited. Fortunately prior experience or a specific degree to work in recruitment is not a must, if you have the passion to learn. I developed essential selling skills: Recruitment is a sales job – you’re selling to both candidates and clients all day, every day, almost every profession requires you to be able to sell successfully, in recruitment l develop strong selling skills that will contribute to my future success, no matter what you end up doing. Becoming target-driven: As a recruiting expert set activity KPIs and sales targets to help keep you focused. If you work smart, taking the time to build and nurture relationships with candidates and clients, I started seeing the fruits of my labor. Problem solving skills: Dealing with people can be challenging and unpredictable. As a recruiting expert I faced with lots of unexpected situations and unforeseen problems which means you’ll have to think on your feet and come up with solutions. I have become resilient, recruitment is a rollercoaster ride with real highs and lows. Success doesn’t happen overnight so, I had to be patient and persistent. On top of that we are dealing with different people with different mindset, learnt not to take any responses personally.

The best skills learnt at Recruise would be Analyzing: With passing years in the role I learnt and sharpened at Recruise was how to read through resumes and get into the minutest of the details mentioned and analysing the same for providing clients a detailed outline of the candidate. Negotiation Skills: According to a recruiter this is considered as one of the most important tools in recruitment rather “effective recruitment”. Here at Recruise I learnt through varied experience as how to negotiate with both my client and customer for the right fit for the right role at the right time. Exceeding Client expectations: This is one of the values that we follow at Recruise. Over a period of time this became a key asset to my skill set as well. Building Trust: To build an Effective relationship it requires Trust. At Recruise I was able to deliver to both clients and customers which helped build trust for both parties. Customer satisfaction: We at Recruise follow a robust management in terms of customer satisfaction. Here I learnt to leverage full support to our customer for end to end recruitment cycle. Closing the loop with reviews and surveys which helps leave a mark on the customer as “happy customer “.

Recruitment on the whole has taught me important things in life, how important a job is for an individual. Being a match maker we maybe let down quite a lot but we need to be resilient & efficient and understand that recruitment is a people business. Nevertheless it is also always highly rewarding & satisfying. We work in a competitive market & that help us to keep in pace with and also self-driven. On the whole I have learnt to be patient, understand, self-driven, communicate, and encourage team bonding and many more.

At Recruise, I learnt that we need to be quick, the turnaround time is very important, how quick we respond to the client (With profiles, schedules) and candidate (Feedback). Gaining satisfaction in the job, you find a company who wants you to find great talent for their vacancies and candidate who gets a job offer due to your advice. Recruitment industry is full of surprises like offers, offer declines, and Interview last minute drop, all these are part and parcel of our work, Candidate Engagement - Build a good rapport with the candidates, regular client engagement, understand client situations and their priorities and advise them on the market availability.

I Hold 5+ years of overall experience in end to end recruitment & Head hunting.

Over the years I hope to grow higher and to become the expert in all the sectors and domains.

Being super honest,  after joining Recruise my sourcing skills have been immensely progressed with the kind of requirements I have been working and for the across clients. I have professionally progressed in stakeholder management dealing with client across industries and across requirements. I have learned and developed working in teams despite of working in a virtual set up, I have learned stress management, let that be drop outs in last minute, client’s escalation or offer rejection. I feel the sense of gratitude working for Recruise as the hard work is appreciated and recognized; that’s a feel good factor. Each one in Recruise is always there to guide and support so the platform to approach any team members is quite accessible. Responsible for effectively communicating and forging strong partnerships with the Internal and external team.

For me as per my experience in Recruitment, some of the skills I have learned and applied are Deep Understanding: Getting deep understanding of what we do, as in IT recruitment we need to have good understanding of all the skills and technologies to source better candidates. Patience: We need to be very patient while talking with candidates not all show their keenness in talking to us. Being Strategic: We need to strategize what detail we have to take from candidates and how to take them, sometimes it becomes a big challenge. Being Cool Minded:  We have to be very cool minded while sourcing the candidates without worrying about achieving targets, recruitment is far more than just achieving targets. Willing to Learn:  We should always be open to learn new things, I think it applies in life as well, it’s a never ending learning process. Negotiation:  We have to develop our convincing and negotiation skills so that we can get good candidates suited to our budget. Communication skills: We need to give special attention to how we communicate with clients and candidates. Socializing: It’s very important to grow our network and socialize with people they could be our prospective candidates or reference

I am with Recruitment industry for 1 decade. I had taken up this role live any other job but later this recruitment became a passion. It was also inclined with my education (MBA on HR). I have learnt a lot from this profession and there is still lot to know it’s like an ocean whatever I have learnt till now it like a cup of water in the ocean. Reason why I like this profession. We regularly interact with the people, get to know many people, and get to know many technologies and the latest technologies. As we interact with the people we also deal with their emotions. Closing a position is a thrill, when the candidates are happy about the role that we have placed them and they thanks us it gives as job satisfaction and vice versa when the client is struggling to close a position and we help them in closing it, Every day is learning every call is a learning, meeting the client and visiting their offices getting to know their culture which might have happened if I would have been in any other profession.

Recruitment is all about understanding the requirement first and placing the right candidate. We need to probe well in all possible ways and understand the candidate’s interest level even before processing his/her candidature for any role. Have come across genuine, fake, dicey, arrogant and professional candidates throughout my career. Most of the candidates do have multiple offers and are never satisfied with one offer. They keep shopping around till the last minute. Building good rapport and staying in constant touch with the candidates might decrease the drop out ratio.

- Priya

The best skills I have learnt throughout the 4 years working at Recruise is gaining experience in fields such as understanding the candidates skills and knowledge, ways of negotiation with salary, identifying the jobs vacancy, analyzing the job requirements, reviewing applications, screening, shortlisting and selecting the right candidate.
