When a company advertises for a vacancy, it gets a heap of résumés through
regular mail, fax, e-mail, etc. To top this, the résumés are usually in
different formats, making the short-listing process a nightmare for the company.
That’s where HR Net Manager comes in. It’s a Web-based application to help
both corporates and placement agencies in their recruiting process, right from
collecting résumés, screening, and short-listing to sending interview call
letters. The Website is available in seven international languages.

The way it works is simple. You first have to open an account on the HR Net
Manager Website,
Then, when you place an advertisement in a newspaper, you have to specify that
all candidates must submit their résumés from the Career link of your company’s
Website. This link will divert them to a page on HR Net Manager’s Website,
which will have your company’s logo. Candidates will be presented with an
online form to fill, whose fields and format will be determined by you. This
way, all résumés will be entered in the same format into a database.

You can perform all sorts of queries, like ask for a list of candidates with
more than three years’ experience, or a list of all engineers, etc. You can
then go through the filtered list and further short-list from it. You can even
send interview call letters via e-mail, or print call letters from within the
package. It stores all the résumés, your comments, names of short-listed
candidates, time and date of sending interview call letters, and appointment

Placement agencies get two types of logins, one for themselves and another
for its clients. The agency controls the résumés their clients can view, while
holding back the candidates’ contact details. The client can login and mark
the people they’re interested in meeting. The agency can then send call
letters and organize interviews.

The Website is quite easy to use, and is highly customizable. You also get an
executable file that will download all data so that you can work offline. The
costs are Rs 10,000 as one-time setup fee, and Rs 1,990 per month for three
months. Longer periods bring the monthly charges down. Introductory price for a
two-year period is Rs 1,250 per month.
