From the last 6 months I had been working on a project for my firm looking for experienced candidates interested in going or working for KPMG India ( BTW I am still looking for people with experience in Audit, Advisory and Tax)Its been a great experience especially telling most candidates in India that I have no interst in their photograph or personal details in the resume. I used many different methods for finding people from Twitter, Linkedin to Orkut (instead of Facebook for India) On a recent short trip to India to "Gods Own Country" ; I still have my folks over there and not because NPR has putting a lot of ads on "Incredible India"(Good website though). So while flipping the giant phone Directory and looking at various Ads by banks. I was really surprised to see many banks mentioning the names and titles of most working in that location. Better customer support I suppose.. I don't know but they had mentioned all senior manager and above from Finance, IT ,Audit , HR dept.
I thought of giving them call... just for the heck of it. I called two of them and both were interested in talking further and got there cell numbers.
India recruiters are you listening? Do you go through phone directory in your local area to call?
