Coffee Career Connect ( C3) is a program of GIC for job opportunities.
Problem Statement :
Most of the job portals are collection of huge big data where candidates post their profiles against requirements but since the amount of seekers are too many to catch the attention and the profile lies un noticed in huge databases of Naukri, Monster, Linkedin, Indeed or for that many any job portal. Thousands of applications for one job in few hours states that not even a call is possible for many job seekers. The problem is of high magnitude for Middle Management and Senior Management who fail to get jobs with out networking or reference. Hence a need is there for a strong referral relationship strong platform which C3 program of GIC Created.
Response to Problem: GIC team identified key decision makers and leaders from its member data base and requested the Leaders to meet the Aspirants who too are GIC members. Aspirants are counseled to present themselves as leaders . A coffee talk is scheduled between two leaders over a coffee in a coffee house like CCD or Star Bucks.
No JD is there. The Employer Leader meets the prospect Leader over a informal chat.
Once the networking is done, the Employer Leader goes back raised a JD/Indent and maps the Aspirant Leader for the role and HR round is initiated. Number of rounds are minimized and the closure happens faster than normal hiring window.
Aspirant becomes GIC member.
No CV or JD is shared, in C3 program. just names are shared, each party googles or linked in to know whom they are meeting.
Leaders identify a day, date and time to have a sip of coffee with the aspirant.
Aspirant proceeds to have a small chat.
Leader evaluates in general, purely informal, no agenda, just they chat
Leader rates the aspirant mainly on soft skills , and bit of hard skills, if he/or she likes the aspirant, raised JD/Indent to HR and HR round is conducted.
GIC has been able to place 100+ Leaders in the last two years thru this program especially at Middle Management and Top Management ( Senior Management ) Level.
