Round up of jobs-as of 20th May

Thursday, May 21, 2009

As I analyze the jobs posted on the NPA splitzone -the platform that about 400 of us associates of the global network use to share HOT candidates and HOT job openings, there are some interesting observations that are validated!!

1. There is hiring happening-as a trickle-but mostly these are all 'tough nuts to crack' types. "Wonderful to have' type requirements, which are almost perennially open-hoping and waiting for the 'elusive catch'!!

2. Almost all the positions posted are specialists in nature. Despite jobs being listed all across the globe, one underlying feature -is the lack of expat jobs!! Almost everyone wants local candidates to be hired -even if the positions are abroad.

As an associate from Israel explained it -"I serve Israeli clients in APAC and actually I am very busy and have lots of new openings in China, Singapore and AU. Lots of openings but slow to close if at all"

Well, I am hoping to get to work on a Nasdaq listed client of hers -who is looking for a VP Sales in India.

3.Collaboration works better!! Over the past year-we have noticed that especially in cross border senior hires, it is very essential to be in sync with the cultural sensitivities-both at the client level and the candidate level-to make a great hire.

Recently, we closed a mandate for a Country Manager for a Canadian company referred to us by an American associate who successfully hand held us-by setting expectations and continuous communication!! The key is the 'consultative approach' that clinched us-instead of the usual 'commodity approach' when job descriptions are shared across the internet!
Well here is a sample of the indicative roles-let me know should you need more details, as we do not have the permission to reveal more information at this stage!
