Many companies in India prefer to hire job seekers through walk in interviews. It has a lot of advantages and are conducted almost every week by many IT companies.
Reason Employers Conduct Walk in Interviews are as follow:-
Bulk Recruitment – Employers mainly conduct a walk in when the number of candidates to be hired are in huge numbers. Job seekers come in big numbers and complete the process on the same day.
Instant Hiring – Candidates clearing the interview are mostly given the offer letter on the same day. This is beneficial for both i.e Employers complete the recruitment process in one day and for applicants as they get the job confirmation on the same day.
Low Recruitment Cost – Since the recruitment is done in bulk, the cost of hiring per candidate is less. Many times companies advertise for a job walk in at multiple locations in one single advertisement which also helps in reducing the cost.
Quality Resources – Walk ins are conducted mainly on weekend; so a lot of candidates who are working for Multi National Companies can make it for the interview, since they have an off on weekends. Therefore skilled and talented candidates who would not be able to make it on week days due to job commitment can attend interviews on weekends.
Systematic Process – The hiring process for a walk in interview can be streamlined in advance. Companies shortlist the candidates on the basis of Educational Qualification, then a written test, technical round of interview and then the final HR negotiations. This process helps them to filter the unwanted candidates and get the most suitable candidates at the end of the day.
Better Offer to Joining Ratio – Many employers have experienced a good number of candidates joining the company who were offered during walk in interview. This could be due to the reason as candidates feel comfortable joining the new job where there are many others joining the same day, same project and at the same level.
As India is becoming one of the major IT hub, many software companies conduct walkins in Bangalore almost on every weekend.
