    • Professional Enterprise and Development APIIT SD INDIA Page 21 7.0. RECRUITMENT STRATEGY 7.1. Introduction Recruitment strategy plays an important role in any organization since it is important ―to hire the right person for the right job at the right time and keeping them”. It begins with identifying an unmet need - a task that needs to be accomplished, translating the unmet needs into a job description, drawing up the person specifications for the position, deciding approach for selection/recruitment advertisement and finally interviewing the candidates. It is almost a never-ending process. The level of performance of an organization depends on the effectiveness of its recruitment function. It is needed to hire the best talent for their organization and to utilize their resources optimally. A successful recruitment strategy should be well planned and practical to attract more and good talent. JOSEPH, K. (2007) 7.2. Recruitment process The recruitment strategy for the 3 posts decided by The Development Team from the Information Resources Management Department to attract, select and recruit the new post holders is outlined below which are different for each:
    • Professional Enterprise and Development APIIT SD INDIA Page 22 Step 1: Identifying job requirements (Defining) Consists of an in-depth analysis of position specifications, careful gathering of requirements with a focus on value and results-oriented experience, which effectively sells company, attributes and retains the most successful candidate. JOHNSTON, S. (2013). It consists of: Find out what kind of talent and profile IBM needs to realize its strategy? Decide how the total budget of 25 lakhs per annum is to be distributed among the three posts? Future requirements for each post, what information to include in job description and person specification? Understand the requirements of the type of candidates that are required for Network Administrator, Project Manager and Software Developer, from the management and development team and the number of vacancies available for the same which will help to decide the refinement process. Have a clear understanding of the current marketplace including: salary surveys; skills shortages; and key drivers / reasons for candidates to join your organization. Create a consistent job profile for each requirement. KLATIK, C. (2011) Step 2: Translating job requirements into job description The job description says ‗what‘ the person will be doing. This is important as it allows a person to properly commit and be responsible for a role. Find out in detail the duties and responsibilities required of the person being hired. Step 3: Drawing up the person specifications It consists of assessing qualifications profiles out of job descriptions for each post. The person specification says ‗what employees need‘, to be able to do the job (what skills, experience, qualifications, attitudes, etc), based upon which candidates will be judged. Each of these traits will be classified under two categories: Essential and Desirable. Essential qualities are those which are a must for the potential job seekers, whereas the desirable qualities are the ones which will provide the candidates a genuine advantage over the other potential employees. Design a proper specification after evaluation of the job description; sketch the personal specifications for each post.It covers the following parameters: • Performance level required. • Experience level, skills and qualifications required.
    • Professional Enterprise and Development APIIT SD INDIA Page 23 • Category of the candidate: the strategy should clearly define the target candidate. Step 4: Designing job advertisements The aim of job advertisements is to attract relevant interest (establishing relevance in the minds of ideal candidates). It should be designed and worded in such a manner to hit the relevant candidates. Advertisements include information such as the location, job title, employer‘s name salary, job description, person requirement, qualification requirement, and number of vacancies, job status and instructions on how to apply for jobs. The candidates will apply by submitting their job application letters and CVs related to a particular post and email it to the email-id mentioned in the job advertisement. Step 5: Decide the mode of publishing advertisements After considering the best way of attracting a pool of suitably qualified candidates, the development team came to the following conclusion: The vacancies should be posted nationally through newspapers, journals. Distribute pamphlets in local engineering colleges or universities, since they are the easiest way to reach the mass in a short period of time and is cost effective as well. Step 6: Short-listing CV’s Short-listing CV‘s is one of the critical steps of the recruitment process which requires analysis by a group of trained recruiters. It is a tedious task to assess CVs and select the requisite number and quality CVs out of thousands to reach to the best technical minds. Job applications and CVs should be analyzed on the basis of grammar, set qualification criteria, required skill set and the overall presentation layout of the CV. The candidate who‘s CVs are accepted will be then called for further rounds. Step 7: Recruitment Tests A candidate who‘s CVs is accepted will have to appear for further IBM recruitment tests which comprises of the below 4 stages. They are: 1. Written Aptitude Test 2. Group Discussion Round 3. Technical Interview, and 4. HR Interview.
    • Professional Enterprise and Development APIIT SD INDIA Page 24 The above rounds will be designed differently for different job specifications by the HR team.

    • Professional Enterprise and Development APIIT SD INDIA Page 39 11.0. LIST OF 9 WAYS TO IMPRESS THE COMPANY The list of 9 ways in which the company might be impressed by an interviewee, before, during and after the interview is as follows: Before the interview Research the company's profile and background but don’t over-prepare: Start by looking into their future goals and plans. Conducting the interview with this in mind will make you seem like a good long-term investment. You should also be ready to talk in depth about the industry, the organization, and the position you are applying for. Precise and revised cover letter: It is the first impression to an employer. It must be precise and to the point describing your intent of writing. It should be correct in all manners. Job oriented impressive CV: It is the way to advertise you so it must be best in all respect. It should be according to the job for which you are applying for. Following are the points to make the CV impressive. Begin with name and contact details Write an impressive Objective Focus on your work experience, responsibilities and achievements Write correct educational qualifications. Write about extracurricular activities. Formal font faces Use the same tense throughout the CV. Prepare well: Not only will this give you a way to structure your preparation, but it will also help you get comfortable with giving answers. Practice giving concise, complete answers and maintaining eye contact with the interviewer(s) while you give them. Make sure you aren't speaking too slow or too fast and that your answers are stated with confidence. Anticipate questions of the interviewer: It‘s best to prepare for a wide variety of questions by thinking about your own career goals, long-term plans, past successes, and work strengths, but you should also brace yourself for the deceptively simple questions that most employers like to throw at their interviewees. Dress for the interview: you should dress for the interview the way you would for the job itself. Choose subdued colors (blues, browns, and grays, black) and make sure
    • Professional Enterprise and Development APIIT SD INDIA Page 40 that your clothes are ironed and wrinkle-free. Avoid wearing perfume, after-shave, or scented lotion (but do wear deodorant). Reach to the place 15 to 20 minutes before the scheduled interview time. Go to bed early the day before the interview so that you look rested and healthy on the big day. Make sure that you have all the documents with you like CV, Cover letter, certificates etc. During the interview Show up in the best possible form: Bring an extra copy of your resume, CV, and/or references in case your interviewer wants to go over any points with you or neglects to bring their own copy. Be courteous and honest: You never know who has input in the hiring process, and you can only make a first impression once. Keep an eye contact with everyone and smile which means alertness and friendliness. Speak clearly and say "please" and "thank you." Talking audibly, with good enunciation, tells people you're confident, while good manners tell them you're considerate of other people. Don't noodle around on your phone or electronic device while waiting. You may review your notes while waiting. While you want to structure your answers so that your best, most qualified aspects take center stage, you don't want to deceive or outright lie. Companies do perform background checks, and lying about your experience is simply not worth it. Listen carefully and concentrate on the questions that are asked and be confident while replying to them. If you don‘t know answers to a particular question, it is perfectly OK to say ―I don‘t know‖ to certain questions instead of trying to guess the answers. This shows you are straight forward. Keep things simple and short: Stick to what you know well, and keep things short and sweet. Structure your answers so that you're talking in 30-90 second chunks. Don't use slang humor during your interview. Be personable: Try to come off as a genuinely likable person if you can. Being personable is about getting the interviewer's emotional side to like you and believe in you. Employers don't always hire the candidates most qualified for the job, but rather the candidates they like the best.
    • Professional Enterprise and Development APIIT SD INDIA Page 41 Ask questions to interviewer: At last when interviewer asks you to ask any question, do ask any relevant question. It will tell your curiosity for joining the company. After the interview Shake hands with the interviewer and exchange pleasantries: The interviewer should give you a time frame for when to expect to get a callback, if applicable. Hold your head high and keep your cool. Project a cool confidence and walk out of the interview with your head held high. If the interviewer does not tell you when they will contact you if you're a good fit for the position, it's appropriate to ask, "When can I expect to hear back from you about the position?" Send a thank-you letter to your interviewer and/or liaison: Thank the person you interviewed with, even if it's just a formality. If you missed any important points in your interview you wanted to stress, you may include one or two in the thank-you letter. Keep the points brief, and tie them into a discussion point that you or the interviewer made during the interview. Follow up with the interviewer at the appropriate time: If you've waited past the designated callback date — or the callback date wasn't set and it's been two weeks — write the interviewer a short email as a reminder.

REFLECTION OF THE MODULE Professional and enterprise development is a module whose learning outcomes left a strong impact on the candidate‘s personality. It introduced fundamental skill and knowledge to prepare for professional employment as well as identified and explored ethical, legal communication and other non-technical factors that contribute to the success (or failure) of the development of computer-related systems in a professional environment. This module helped the candidate to always have an edge over others as it brought positive changes in the traits of the candidate. It has groomed the candidate‘s cognitive skills and competencies and filled her with positive energy and zeal to prepare her to face the harsh competitive world near ahead. In the beginning of the semester, the candidate assumed that the contents of the module would be boring, but gradually, she realized that this module would rather solve the purpose to survive in this corporate world (survival of the fittest). The candidate came to know that possessing technical knowledge only would not help to outshine others. One needs a mixed personality of professionalism plus the core knowledge of his/her field. Thus, PED added a spice over the recipe. The important learnings from this module are: Learn how to give a precise, effective and an impressive introduction since first impression is the last impression. Learn to write curriculum vitae and cover letter according to desired job specification. Prepare for the list of interview questions and answers that would be likely be asked in the interview. All these helped build confidence to easily grab the first opportunity before others take the chance. The candidate is aware of privacy and copyrights laws which in past I used to ignore due to lack of knowledge about its aftereffects. It has also made me aware of the laws that I can avail as a programmer or a developer. How to become saleable in the market through a technique known as personal branding? How to make a verbal business card? Why ethics is important? How important it is to become and ethical person? What are the benefits of being a whistle blower? The importance of planning, project management, usability and quality assurance in a corporate world was brought into focus. How to a usable user interface and implement HCI pricnciples. What it means to be an intrapreneur and an entrepreneur?
    • Professional Enterprise and Development APIIT SD INDIA Page 61 How can you be team leader, what are the various management qualities required to lead a team well like stress management, time management etc. How to handle risks? How can one be proactive? The communication taking place in a hierarchical organizational structure. Explain the organisational context in which professional work occurs, including management, financial issues, team working, human resource issues and recruitment Explain the legal context and law applicable to professional computing and apply those principles to guide decision-making. Explain the role of professional bodies, codes of conduct and professional ethics and apply such codes as a guide to decision making. Thus, the learning outcomes gained through this module are so beneficial that they can be implemented anywhere in the life to have a shining bright future. It helped us make us realize those concepts which we always consider al less valuable but when observed carefully, they play an important role in building up a good personality. Now I know how combine my technical knowledge with my personality skills as in the present day world both are equally important.

    • Professional Enterprise and Development APIIT SD INDIA Page 81 4. A Reflection on what we have learnt from this module To survive in the professional organization only technical knowledge is not enough. We need to understand the how the organization works and what professional attitude we should adapt in order to achieve both company as well as our own goal. Professional and Enterprise development is not a technical subject but it is a subject which helps in making our technical knowledge more worth. It helps us to develop our overall personality as well as attitude. We started with the very basic concept of career development which includes writing resume, cover letter, recruitment strategies, job description, person specification, job advertisement, verbal business card, personal branding, etc. which made me more confident and clear about ass these concept. Knowing organizational structure and Informational Flow of organization is very important to survive in it. Apart from making us clear about the career development processes and interpersonal skills, in PED I learnt about the organizational structure and hierarchy of communication in an organization. By going through this module all the concept of the organization got clear. All the culture which exists in an organization is known to me now. After going through this module all the concept of professional Issues got understood. Knowledge of computer ethics and code of conduct gave me a sense of what is right and what is wrong in an organizational which is not that clear to me. So at last I would like to conclude that apart from the technical skills by studying this subject I am confident about all the career development processes, Organizational structure, and professional Issues which are necessary to survive in the corporate world. In this module I got the practical knowledge as well as real world examples which increased the confidence level in me. I am now sure that I can handle projects and can work with a team. I can handle any situation and can use any of these concepts to have a smooth career ahead.

    • Professional Enterprise and Development APIIT SD INDIA Page 101 Following are the reflection of what I learnt from this module:  Through this module I have learned what the key features of Job advertisement are and understood the purpose of job description and personal specification. The main thing in job advertisement to understand is how to present your advert to attract the job seekers. It includes the brief description about the job description and personal specification.  The key features that a company looks for in CV‘s, how to write a covering letter and the common questions that are asked during the Interviews were also a few things that I came to know. There are four types of interview questions that are asked during interview.  I have learnt about how to write resume or curriculum vitae, about verbal business card, personal branding, recruitment process and recruitment timetable of an organization.  I‘ve also learnt the importance of management and planning not just in terms of projects but its application everywhere like planning your everyday tasks and making sure you complete them. The lessons regarding quality along with the case studies discussed in the tutorials have taught me the importance of checking, rechecking and testing of all the work that we do.  The lessons regarding quality along with the case studies discussed in the tutorials have taught me the importance of checking, rechecking and testing of all the work that we do.  The PED is such a module which always has an edge over others. The following theory in the module when applied in our practical life, the thinking of a professional , his attitude, communication skill, interpersonal skill, team player, verbal business card and the most important the ethical values changes a lot.  This module also explains about project management and organization structure. Why project management skill is important. What are the qualities a project manager must possess?
    • Professional Enterprise and Development APIIT SD INDIA Page 102  Now I am aware of privacy and copyrights laws which in past I used to ignore due to lack of knowledge about its aftereffects. It has also made me aware of the laws that I can avail as a programmer or a developer. Now I can frequently used the words such as ethics, whistle blowing, copyright, privacy.  All in all PED has made me ready to prepare for the challenge of professional world I am really glad to have learnt this module. Now I know how combine my technical knowledge with my personality skills as in the present day world both are equally important. Overall, Professional and Enterprise Development module has helped me to prepare for the real professional world and to face the challenge and handle them in a much better and positive way. I thank my module lecturer for her continuous support and the interactive lectures that made it all so effortless and fun to grasp and understand things. We have been told about the word ―professionalism‖ since the very first date of our college life. However, during of the course of the previous five semesters the only things we have learnt is how to develop an error free system for a user. It is only in this module that we have learnt how to be a true professional. 6.0.REFERENCES 1. http://searchoracle.techtarget.com/answer/What-is-the-difference-between-a- database-engineer-architect-and-administrator(Last accessed on th March, 2010 at 2:43 PM) 2. http://www.cvtips.com/cover-letter/(Last accessed on 3rd April, 2010 at 3:45 PM) 3. http://www.coders2020.com/interview/good_answers_to_interview_questions (Last accessed on 12th March, 2012 at 4:30 PM) 4. http://www.coders2020.com/interview/sample_interview_questions_and_answers (Last accessed on 16th March, 20102at 4:45 PM) 5. http://recruitment.naukrihub.com/recruitment-process.html Last accessed on22th march, 2012 at 4:45 PM) 6. http://www.kforce.com/Career-Resources/Top-11-Interview-Questions-of- 2011.aspx[Last accessed on28 th march, 2012 at 4:45 PM] 7. http://content.dell.com/us/en/enterprise/d/large-business/questions-network- adminstrator [Last accessed on5 th April, 2012 at 4:45 PM]
