to be a good Human Recource manager....

Hi I feel i have been lucky in life to sit on both sides of the same table during interview. I have attended interviews as an interviwee as well as an interviwer. Though i have come back to the other side of the table after i left the job. i am working now again but still this side of the tabl is only what i would like to opt for. As per the rules we were told of, is it really true that an HR who rejects the maximum and could retain a maximum of 30-35% candidates at an interview is the best HR? i used o select upto 70-75% candidates and my life was made miserable and i had no options but to flee to the other side of the table. What do u say? (Specially if u r an HR)....

Well, I have no knowledge about this, as I am still on the other side of the table. Although to become an HR is something I want to, but life is not giving me ample time to go for an MBA degree. So will have to wait till that good time comes. Anyways good luck to you, and dont just select people if they are not good. See would you like someone to be your boss or colleague who is not worth, i do not think so, right? Then why to choose such colleagues for others. I am not saying that you be very critical but choose with some future plan. Choose like you are choosing for your very own company. Think do you want him as your employee, will he be an asset for you? Then may be you will get an answer. But this was just a thought, as I do not know how things on the other side.

Hey deepti, thanks...its true. Well i wish u all the best and hope u become an HR fast. Atleast my worries for getting a job in future. i think you missed somewhere in the discussion. i am out of the profession of HR and now working as a manager.so I am also on the sam side as u. :) I enjoy this side more. Its better to have my fate decided by someone than to sit and decide some one elses fate. Thats what i understand. hOWEVER I WOULD NOT MIND MY FATE BEING DECIDED BY U.
