What are the Sources used for talent acquisition ( Hunting the Heads )?  Personal contacts  Referrals' from the candidates.  From consultancy 2. From the Above different sources which is the source you get more response?  Referrals' from the candidates.  Job portals where candidates have posted their resumes  Direct walkins.

What is generally the lead time to join the organization expected by the employer and generally taken by the candidates ?  According to the company the candidate should join as soon as possible. Also at the beginning candidates been asked by the consultants & HR if they comfortable in working shifts. 5.  If the candidate is currently working somewhere then in that case he might take one month to join as he need to serve the notice period in his existing company which is the requirement for leaving the present job & based on that the employees are given the experience letter.relate the job fit and culturally fit manning ?  Earlier it was a problem where the job of Hotel & the culture of the people was clashing now everybody is aware that they have work in shifts & they would be dealing with people from residing in India an abroad. Which are the preferential areas in selecting a candidate  The preferential areas in selecting the candidate is his fluency in English. .

. What is the ratio in between the requisition of the vacancies and the candidates interview?  As this is a volume hiring always the candidates interview should be higher than the requisition of the vacancies as few of the candidates do not turn up at the time of joining. Do you have the data and information bank related with unsolicited application And the candidates who have been rejected ?  Yes we have to maintain the data of all the candidates whether they are selected or not also at the same time we need to maintain a separate data for the unsolicited application as at times they are not allowed to apply in future.  If there is other reason such as too growth Or else the entire company got shut down then based on the circumstances the candidates are considered.7.

5. 2. 4. A majority of employees feel that recruitment process carried out in the company is satisfactory. so most of the employees face difficulty to adjust with them. 3. B) Negative findings:1.FINDINGS QF STUDY The findings during the work carried out by me can be categorized into two categories as it is said that every coin has two sides:- a) Positive findings:1. if the candidate demands for the higher wages then he can pro actively ask the consultancies that which is the company paying the highest wages in the market based on the information he can directly join that company instead of him going through different companies & checking the package. 2.g. Some employees were moderately or not much satisfied with the process. Since rules and regulations are very dynamic. The new joiners are very much satisfied with the process of training given to them regarding recruitment. Since there is a gap in between their expected pay scales & actual in hand compensation 3. Some employees feel that each recruiter gets an opportunity to do the whole process right from the recruitment to client co-ordination. Consultants make sure that the right candidate is placed in the right company for e. Since the recruitment is a volume based recruitment it can be easily achieved with the help of the consultants & placements service. .

5. C) Special Findings: Since the process involves continuous sitting at one place so refreshment was provided to the candidates who had come for the interview.4. Many a time the interview calls are spontaneous the result yielded is the prospective candidate does not have time to prepare for interview. This being as unique exp by candidates it helps to build the goodwill of the company . Most of the candidates do not turn up when they are called up for the interview.

SUGGESTIONS .

 The recruiter should also take the references of his friends or any one he knows who looking for a job from the candidate who has come for the interview. .SUGGESTIONS Following are the suggestions to improve the recruitment process: The process should be future oriented.  While following the process the time and economy factor should be taken into consideration. which can be done by keeping attitude and knowledge in consideration instead of just emphasizing on qualification and experience.

CONCLUSION .

Ensuring the quality of the persons to be recruited is a very difficult task because there are several diff influential factors impacting on the system. . In today's rapidly changing business environment organizations have to respond quickly to requirement for people. So the base of selection is considerably broad.  Improper recruitment can prove very costly for the organization and can lead to loss to company. Hence each and every employee is guided to follow the process taking this into consideration. It realizes the value of manpower and try the best not to waste the manpower. It believes in quality not quantity.  The purpose of recruitment is to carry out effective recruitment of strong candidates as in to retain them in the organization and achieve the required goals of it. But Hotel Aurora towers takes into consideration the time allotted for fulfilling the requirements and fulfills them in an appropriate manner within the stipulated time.CONCLUSION  Recruitment is the first step in the process of acquiring and retaining human resources for an organization. in context to the recruitment.

LIMITATIONS .

 Since most of the candidates were never use to turn up so the drive for the interview was not possible. The major limitations are as follows:  Due to the stipulated time frame.LIMITATIONS Each and every research carried out has some limitations due to various reasons. because some expectations are not fulfilled.  The study was carried out within 2 months time period.
