#NoTalentCrunch - It's a fact

Every research, every recruiter, every employer stand ground on one fact - There is intense talent shortage and we are unable to hire on time

My question - Seriously?? Are you so lost that you somehow manage to drift away from reality? Have you lost your touch with the Market? Have you been blinded by the fact that everyone around you is saying that, so even i'm supposed to?

Whatever maybe your reason to outline that there is intense shortage of talents, here is the bummer - There are huge talents pools out there waiting for you to tap. Just because your strategies & plans failed doesn't mean it's not there. Either change your approach or be struck with your illusion of Talent Crunch.
There are a few Smart Firms who exactly do what others don't. These firms employ the Best Brains. Few such firms have never complained, cribbed nor whined about any kind of shortages.They have always got their fill rates on time, everytime. It is ridiculous for employers to whine…

Sales as a Career!! Are you Game ?

Although debatable, Sales is the single most critical function of an organization. Be it a fortune 500, Series funded or a startup. Sales guys are the front-runners who face clients head on. The heart & soul of a business entity lies with the Sales/marketing Team. In one liner - Sales is like oxygen without which a business entity suffocates and slowly fades away.
As much as we would like to think that we're living a the 4th revolution (Aka Digital World), one where all sales happen on line and there is no need for us to pick up the phone, but unfortunately that's not true.
