HighTea from Timesjobs

HighTea from Timesjobs

Recently I came across one article in Timejobs blog where they have summed up 10 new features they introduced in 2009. Many of the features are enhancements or modifications of what was already there but some are new and good. One feature that I particularly liked  is HIGH TEA.They introduced this feature in March 2009.

High Tea is basically a live webchat event where  jobseekers and recruiters can have a live chat session with a senior HR manager from some reputed company on a scheduled day.

How does it work?

1st of all you need to register in Timesjobs site.

On the scheduled day and time you can send your question via chat box. The moderator will shortlist relevant ones among all questions and pass on to the guest. The guest can be in front of the  system chatting himself or he can be on phone(most of the time) where he answers  and moderator will type the answer for you. All this happens live .All questions and answers are visible on the screen.

Information regarding new sessions are available on their official blog .

I believe this initiative is good for candidates, recruiters and corporates also. Candidates and recruiters can ask queries regarding job-market and interview processes and have an idea of what corporates are looking for.  At the same time corporate HR managers can participate as the guest and share their ideas. Here it can be a good promotion for their companies also.

Among the main Indian jobsites Naukri, Monster and Timesjobs, I can see Timesjobs giving a lot of focus to social media.But while searching for their official blog I came across not one , not two but three sites!!!- [1], [2], [3]. Many articles are cross-posted in them. Running an official blog is a good step but three blogs can at best divide your audience. I hope they have a better reason for this.
