5 years into recruitment and talent acquisition, I have been fortunate enough to meet few set of extra-ordinary people. I have met Mr. Shankar Gopalakrishnan, who taught me to basically “How to be a recruiter”? Why we should consider the role and job important and treat our self as important cog in the wheel. I am also quite lucky to meet my current Co-founders, Ashish Toshniwal and Sumit Mehra who always understand the importance of talent. For them, it’s talent and culture that builds a strong organisation.

I have been fortunate enough to learn these things but have noticed few things I had done wrong during early stages of my career, maybe this post will make few of you to realise this mistake earlier.

  1. You are as good as you think: All learning and talent stops here. The moment you think that you are too good to learn something new or the moment you think that what you know right now is enough, the growth stops. You stagnate and while you can give multiple reasons behind it. The most important factor will always be you.

Hope this piece helps all my fellow recruiters…
