Every organisation wants the best and only experienced people. Nobody looks at freshers or lessexperienced. How will one be experienced when they dont get offers as freshers? How should one prove themselves as freshers or less experienced?
This query has been raising several thoughts in my mind since past few months but somehow have really failed to come to a conclusion. As rightly stated by you, lingos like talent management which have been borrowed from the west are being given utmost significance in the corporate scenario these days. Organizations have always wanted the best, be it management schools or be it previous experiences of the candidate, they want the BEST.
I have been thru experiences wherein the interviewer is interested for candidates only for top class B-schools even though without experience sometimes. Alternatively, if there is a candidate from not so low not so high management school but with worthy domain expertise, then he is shown the door with a standard dialogue "we'll get back to you". Nowadays, people have come on streets to protest against the reservation quota system, in that case "isn't this reservation of some kind" ? Why is there differentiation amongst job aspirants. No doubt, the certain company positions do require candidates from top management schools, but in that case one can never justify of ignoring the freshers or the less experienced management candidates. As one says, freshers can be converted into experienced only if given an opportunity, otherwise how shall one become an experienced candidate with being a fresher. This is a question that has to be raised by the fraternity at large or it shall ruin the upcoming generation of freshers who have no option but to join the glamorous call center / bpo / ites industry wherein you shall find bunch of FRESH qualified engineers, FRESH management students and FRESH commerce specialised professionals who have given up the rat race and have been too tired of hearing the "we'll revert to you" stuff.
So an advice to all freshers and candidates who have had to take this stick, remember to say yourselves each morning "I'M THE BEST, I'M THE BEST, I'M THE BEST...and lift up your spirits to finally you someday recieving a call saying "YES, YOU ARE BEST..
