Dear Ravishankar Venna,
Really very happy in reading your blog & Finally got in tears after reading completely..
Yes–people are faking their resumes–because if you keep the word fresher in your resume–they may have a fear– not get even a phone call also from any big/Small Software companies( you may get some consultancy calls informing you that let me check with the Client and they will never turn back)
Recently i had a discussion with my friend’s uncle(working as a recruiter in some Software company).This discussion really changed my mind set too–why i will tell you in detail…
Me: Uncle–what are the Job opportunities for SAP-SD?
Uncle: see–SAP is the world where always open for talent and smart(Please note this word smart is more required in Software industry–May not be that much relevant in others–i am taking the meaning of word “smart”– in both positive and negative)
Me: Uncle–once you got some resumes what will be your approach in selection?
Uncle: See phani–99.99% of Resumes in SAP are fake–so i can find & remove fake resumes in seconds–But if i do so–i may have 1 out of 1000…Then think from my point of view what i need to do? i know that this resume is fake but no chance for me except forwarding it to my people…
Me: if you know it is fake–why forwarding?
Uncle: see–Once a guy has put some fake experience in his resume–his consciousness always warns him(negative for him) and Positive for me…why i will tell you–once you keep fake in resume of some 3+ years–may be after my interview–if he got selected–if any works assigned to him will be making him to respond in a much faster way than a Fresher—
If i take a fresher–to accomplish some work–it may take 10 days(i need to spend my entire time,salary,patience initially to train him)
But if i take faked guy–so he himself finds his own ways and can accomplish my work may be in 2-3 days(if any mistakes done–still i will be there in correcting these)
Now think what we need to Do????
Fake Experience Or Fresher….
This is what was happen in my case and initially i truly believe that your knowledge can give you the right place…so initially i kept my resume in Naukri as fresher–do you believe that i got just 3 phone calls in a span of six months that to from consultancy and informed that they will check with their client and will come back(actually they didn’t even turned back)(actually i am not certified too)
After this i kept some Fake experience of 3+,this time i receive the Interview calls—actually i got good number of calls and attended,
finally failed due to unable to catch what exactly interviewer asking me!!!!!
So now think from my point of View–what to do to Go ahead?
Meanwhile your family/Financial Conditions makes you to enter nasty words like keeping fake in Resumes….
But let me tell you i got my Job where i learnt SAP…( Now i am in Support Project)(This also I got by keeping some 1.5 years of Fake–But client liked my approach and taken the risk of selecting me)(actually i have been supporting this client through online- number of times previously)
But PERKS are very little–that’s OK.
Sorry–even the Teachers are taking money from students to refer them and as well as for their fake telephone interviews…
This is what the Current situation is…..
I strongly believe–“””Once teacher got corrupted —-the entire society will be corrupted””””
I recently studied in my Face book account which really made me to come out of this frustration:
“””IF YOU FOLLOW MOTION—KILLS EMOTIONS“”””
I strongly feel that my God ordered me to stop all these nasty things by these messages and through the people like you all &
recently i deactivated all my accounts in Naukri , Monster & Times Jobs…which contains my fake experience.
Let me try again with a fresh mind and all you people are with me every time wherever i stuck…
Thanks for your patience in reading this…
If i wrote any thing wrong–please excuse me…
After Effects Once I removed my Fake resume in all Job Sites:
As i shared after Deactivating all my accounts in job sites–Today morning i got the call from the HR of a very well reputed company and she asked me for the updated CV-once i told the truth–then she further stopped the Discussion–Finally said thanks for the Information and disconnected my call !!!!!!
Let me see what are all the other worst things i can hear in coming future 😉
But it is better to face worst things than later times 😎
