Recruiter of the last resort. We help when everything else has failed.

If there’s anything I’ve learnt from my association with the recruitment industry, it is that it’s a constant battlefield. Once I even asked a recruiter friend of mine about why she likes to work in such a high-pressure job?  She looked me in the eye with a very straight face, leaned in and with much seriousness said, “A soldier must do what she does best. Fight."

Recruitment as a career, can be immensely fulfilling if you’re up for challenges and if you know how to strategize well. What makes me say that? My recent feat of success!

Our client was a renowned player in the Non-Banking Financial Companies sector. They were looking for a Director of Technology to build the tech-division of their firm from scratch.

“We’ve been at it for a year now, but we haven’t been able to find the right candidate yet. We have rolled out offers, but the candidates have dropped out. The location is also proving to be a challenge- Chennai has a small talent pool when compared to other cities. It won’t be easy. Are you up for it?”, said the client in the briefing call.

"We need a new pair of eyes to come and change things around here," the founder told us. His second requirement - "We are looking for someone who can double our revenue."

I woke up feeling surprisingly upbeat for a Monday. Whatever the day had in store for me, bring it on! There weren't a whole lot of mails when I switched on my laptop, so I'm guessing my clients had a work-free weekend as well. I made a few calls and sent a few emails, and everything was going breezy until I got a call from my boss.

"Hi Rids, you have a new client," she said. The gist of the call was this: PC3*, an up-and-coming market research firm, was looking to hire a Chief Technical Officer. The catch? They needed someone to join in a month's time.
