One size fits all? Its been so for a decade now
An open job position requirement is sent to recruiters, the details
are blurred, probably the job position itself was copy pasted from
somewhere and tailored a wee bit. Of course there is a deadline. The
recruiter has her own doubts about compensation matching up to skills.
But there is a deadline and this is a challenge that the recruiter
should take up, to prove her credentials and, perhaps an entry into
the recruiter hall of fame.
Search job boards, portals, hit the network
There is electricity in the air with a good chance of the energy
turning into panic
Assuming that a new open job position does mean that there are some
unique (if not anything rare or nearly extinct) traits...
Freeze frame, and let's ponder a few questions:
Why should all job order formats be the same
And more important, why should all resume formats be the same
Information that is relevant to make a decision definitely varies. Can
anyone out here argue - debate that one resume format fits all?
Thats like, I would want to know technical skills of a merchandize
manager or, want to know the sales targets of my payroll services
But then, why do we take the one size fits all approach from all job
services and portals?
Anyone working multiple sectors? Specifically non information
technology recruiters? Shout it out...
