About Exalt consulting

Companies do not simply rely on newspaper or job portal advertisements to post a vacancy. Job seekers are also contacted by a third party, namely a placement agency, on behalf of the company in order to screen suitable candidates. Job seekers, on their part, too hire the services of placement consultants to help them find the right job.

Companies seek the help of placement consultants as and when there is a job opening. Consultants maintain a database of job seekers looking for employment and scan through it to search for the right candidate; online job portals are another source for headhunting resumes that match with the job profile in question. Placement consultants conduct the initial screening of candidate profiles and even schedule interview with the company.

 Consultant’s role from job seeker’s perspective

The interaction between consultant and job seeker may initiate in two ways: either by the placement consultant as mentioned above or by the job seeker who registers himself/herself with the placement firm. Placement agencies can increase the chances of a candidate of coming in contact with the right companies that hold vacancies in the desired sector and candidate’s level of experience.

Through these consultants, job seekers also stay updated with the latest demands in their sector in terms of skills and qualifications.

Qualities of Exalt consultant

As a job seeker, you will be interacting with the consultant at least in the initial stages of the hiring process and more if you have taken the services on hire for finding a suitable job. It is, therefore, important to know the competency of the placement consultant in whose hands you have entrusted your job search.

  • Good communication and inter-personal skills.
  • Gauges potential candidate’s suitability for particular job role.
  • Puts forth the requirements and job responsibilities along with terms of employment clearly at the initial stages itself.
  • Follows up with the candidate subsequently regarding the progress of hiring process at interview rounds with the company and once placed too.

Exalt placement consultants play a bridging role between the employer and the job seeker by matching the company’s requirements for a particular vacancy with the candidate’s profile - job role, qualification, salary compensation etc. How well a placement agency can match the two sides determines their success rate at talent acquisition and enables a job seeker find the right job. Exalt does its best.
