Summary : Publishing Recruitment advertisements in newspapers does not always come naturally to recruiters. Even if they do opt for newspaper advertising, they often have problems in choosing the most suitable newspaper platform to advertise or announce the vacancies in their organisation. In case of consultancies also, individual consultants have to approach and hunt for candidates by calling numerous people through the database obtained from online job portals. But a ‘Situation Vacant’ advertisement in a newspaper by a renowned company induces applicants to apply for the job directly or approach the recruiters. If the advertising medium is popular then that is even more beneficial for the recruiters. One of the best platforms for recruiters to communicate to huge masses of Job seekers is the Times Ascent Newspaper, the appointment supplement of the most popular English newspaper of India-The Times of India. This supplement enables advertisers to only publish display advertisements and with the help of some to follow tips can drive the best results for recruiters and in turn for the job seekers. —————————————————————————————————————————————————————-
Recruitment is a constant process for a number of companies and consultancies. Often, the recruitment procedure itself helps people earn their bread and butter, as it is in case of consultancies, who recruit candidates on behalf of the Organisation and get paid for their services. Even in-house Human resource recruiters have experienced the position of a job seeker at some point in their careers. In a country like India, recruitment is a serious issue in a number of states and cities, wherein either the recruiter or the job seeker suffers. Recruiters often do not get the right candidates due to lack of communication while job seekers cannot access information regarding vacancies and openings for relevant posts in renowned organisations.
