How to organise a recruitment drive (Part 1)

How to organize a recruitment drive

What is a recruitment drive?

Generally recruitment drives (or events) are conducted when the requirement is generic but critical and number of positions is more. Here on a predetermined day ideally 50-60 candidates turn up for interview and 4-5 panel members keep taking interviews of candidates all along the day. Number of panel members varies according to number of candidates. Mostly recruitment drives are conducted on weekends as candidates have off that day.

Recruitment drives can be of two types:

Walk -ins : In case of walk-ins, an advertisement regarding the drive  is published  on news paper or job boards. Any candidate with suitable education and skill set can attend the interview. Mostly it is done for 0-2 yrs candidates.

Scheduled interview: In case of a scheduled interview large numbers of candidates are scheduled by consultants or company to come on the same day for same requirement. In this case their profiles are already seen and shortlisted by the technical people.

In case of scheduled interview, please ensure that all the candidates get the mail with Interview venue, timing, contact person detail and Job description.
Also candidates should be called a day before for conformation and if possible consultants should do follow up calls also.
Also ensure that all interviewers are informed about the timing and requirement properly.
Discuss the process of interview (number of rounds, written test) with the hiring manager.
