AxiomRC

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

As a recruitment consultancy that deals with both Indian and US markets, we often get asked questions like how do you hire for American companies, how do you understand their challenges and expectations?


So, when I heard that Rids, an AxiomRC recruiter, recently closed a position with a US client, I got on a call with her to learn about her experience.


The brief was more complicated than usual, she informed. It was a new position at the client’s, and hence the requirements and responsibilities were still evolving. The client wanted their CFO candidate to have exceptional knowledge in US GAAP and IFRS, and accounting and taxing principles in both India and US.

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."

How do you a hire for a client if we are yet to agree on the ideal candidate? This question was rankling in my mind ever since I returned from my big meeting with Cheers and Celebrations, a leading player in the gifts and greeting cards industry, this morning.

The crux of the meeting was this. Cheers and Celebrations was looking to hire a new CEO. Now, most of their employees had grown with the company and had been around for decades. "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."

Contrary to popular belief, a recruiter’s job is anything but easy.


Our work affects entire organizations, and can completely change a person’s life. Trust lies at the heart of what we do. But recently, I also experienced it first-hand when my boss gave me a big assignment. MegaBPO, global BPO firm with tens of thousands of employees, wanted our help in finding an HR Head for them. 


“The client wants to hire in a week’s time, and the COO especially called me saying that her prefers to trust us with this responsibility. It’s a big thing, you understand, right?” she said.

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.
