Q: Any words from you having to do with this great traction and your reasons for creating this article and repurposing it into a forum discussion?
Simon Chan: Yeah sure. Obviously labour market economics and business analysis is my background, so writing this on LinkedIn was also utilizing my abilities as a Business Analyst. I had this idea to look at a macro problem and showcase how I would go about solving it via dialogue, which is obviously the Recruitment space I have good experience of this problems as I spent two months looking for a job myself, and obviously I am a well-qualified individual so I didn’t expect to be on the Job Market for that long. But the reality is, I just didn’t get into conversations with the right people, to start off with. And, it took me a long time to get those conversations, over a period of six to eight weeks, in the end. I think that this is part of the problem, there’s just too many Recruiters in the space at the moment so you don’t get the right conversations with the right people, who are connected to the right jobs.
So, I took it upon myself to try and work-out what was going on here and that’s why I started to write the article, to lay down the problems that I see from a Job Candidate point of view, from a Job Candidate angle. I’ve also done Recruitment, in the past as a Hiring Manager, so I was able to articulate the problems there as well, and that’s what really opened up the conversation it looked like I was criticizing the Recruitment Industry, and then, obviously all stakeholders came out, including recruiters and they offered their views on the actual problem as well, which was great because it opened up everything.
Quanta D: That’s right, that’s what I was just thinking.
Simon Chan: I’ve got people from Recruitment who are my friends as well, who are phoning me and letting me know what they think and it’s great, because I’m able to look at the actual problems from
Quanta D: From both sides, yes, Sir.
Simon Chan: There are too many people in this process, there is the Hiring Manager, there Is the HR Manager, there is the Job Recruiter and then there is also the Job Candidate, if you look at any one in isolation, you’re not going to solve the problems of Hiring and the Job Market, you need to look at all four.
