WhatsApp Group Chat – Is Counselling Candidates on improving their Job Hunt Strategy a Recruiters Role?

The Talent Acquisition profession is evolving rapidly due to the Digital Marketing Age.  We are slowly moving from performing full cycle Recruitment processes alone to Employee & Employer Branding as well. Given this scenario it’s obvious to question what aspects are involved in a Recruitment Professionals Role.

That being said our popular Wednesday discussions addressed the query, “Are Recruiter’s going above their role when they counsel ideal or not ideal candidates on how to improve their job hunt strategy?” As suggested by our Mumbai group member Joel and here’s what we uncovered…1

Well based on the discussion above we can conclude that Counselling Candidates about better ways of Job hunting and giving career advice is partially part and parcel of a Recruiters role as that indirectly improved their network. But don’t go just yet; we’ll be giving you the key take a ways of this discussion below…

  • Good Recruiters always guide and have a consultative approach towards Candidates
  • Networking is another name of Recruiting and while networking we also advice our network for the different opportunities, process, career growth etc.
  • Recruiters now step into an advocacy role but after gather information about industries and trends, challenges, road blocks, job specifications etc.
  • Talent Acquisitionist’s have always been at some level Counsellors and Career Advisors and it’s more evident due to digitalisation and personal interaction with Candidates

If you’ve enjoyed this and found it enlightening then you’d enjoy it more once you’re a part of such discussions by joining in.
