IT AND RECRUITING ON THE INTERNET

In recent years most companies have found it useful to develop their own website and list job openings on it. The website offers a fast, convenient and cost effective means for job applicants to submit their resume through the Internet. Infosys Technologies Ltd., for example, gets over 1000 resumes a day from prospective candidates through the Net. The resumes are then converted into a standard format using the software that the company has developed for short listing candidates according to a set criteria such as
alma mater, qualifications, experience etc. The HR manager has to key in his or her requirement and 'profiles' of candidates from the company's database get generated.9 There are a variety of websites available – in addition to a company's own website where applicants can submit their resumes and potential employers can check for qualified applicants. (such as (i) www.jobsahead.com (ii) www.headhunters.com (iii) www.naukri.com (iv) www.monsterindia.com (v) www.mafoi.com (vi) www.abcconsultants.net (vii) www.datamaticsstaffing.com (viii) www.timesjobs.com
etc.) Internet recruiting, as mentioned earlier, generates fast, cost-effective, timely responses from job applicants from different parts of the world. And that's where the problem lies: the website might be flooded with resumes from unqualified job seekers. Applications may also come from geographic areas that are unrealistically far away.
