That one “ANSWER” changed everything.
It was a niche opportunity. In recruitments, working on such positions is like a thrilling adventure. We recruiters were lucky enough to source the best profile for the same. Then the recruitment process followed….. profile shortlisting….. telephonic interview……F2F interview. The candidate was technically very sound and hence qualified for the final interview with the delivery head. Until then it was a smooth road without any hurdles in between. It’s quite natural that by this time anyone’s confidence level will be at its peak. As usual the common question was asked….
Why you want to leave your current job?
And his answer was…….”It’s a 9 hrs. job”.
The story ends here. Even after frequent follow ups the client didn’t consider him.
Serious things need to be considered seriously.
