At Workship, we always try to assist candidates in the best way possible to make their job hunting experience as smooth as possible. Our aim to get them the job they deserve and the job they’d enjoy.
Akhil Pillia, who reached out to us a while ago during his job search shares how he felt after choosing us to take care of his job search.
What kind of job profile were you looking? How similar was it to the job you currently have?
I was looking for a job opportunity that could challenge me with something new every day. I love solving scalability and performance enhancement problems for data-driven systems. So, I wanted to have a job that would allow me to use my capabilities towards something I’m actually interested in. My current job as the Senior Software Engineer at a leading data analyzing company aligns with my primary requirement where I get to work in domains like high-performance computing (HPC), big data and machine learning.
We’d like to know more about your experience with Workship! Can you elaborate on the hiring process (from registration to getting an offer) that you went through with Workship to land your job?
If I had to describe the hiring process in a single word, I would call it “smooth”. For starters, the JD of the profile was elaborate and informative enough from me to understand the company’s expectations and to determine if I’d be suited for the role.. The icing on the cake was that someone from the Workship team called me to personally explain the profile. They even tried to understand my expectations to ensure that it matches perfectly with what I am looking for.
I really appreciate this “personal touch” and post that I felt like my job search experience was in safe hands. From scheduling interview to getting the offer letter, everything was taken care of by them. It was like having a personal assistant managing my job hunt for me, and all I had to do was show up and give my best.
How was your experience with the Workship staff? What was their role in your job hunting journey?
The experience was a memorable one, to say the least. It almost felt like someone was actually concerned about my placement like it was their own. Finding a new job can sometimes leave you discouraged and insecure, but that never happened to me. And that was largely because of Workship. I got a prompt response at each and every stage of the hiring process. They assured me when I had doubts and they responded to all my queries. What helped me the most was that I didn’t have to wait for ages to know my results. They ensured that I got a response from HR as soon as possible. Otherwise, the wait is usually painful.
Did you also try other recruitment portals? How different was your Workship experience as compared to them?
Frankly, I did not. First of all, I didn’t have the time to deal with all the spammy emails job portals tend to bombard you with. Secondly, I trusted the folks at Workship to get me the job I deserve in a company that was the best match for me. You see, with Workship, I am interacting not with web-applications and robots—I am interacting with real people. And I like to rely more on people than machines.
What, according to you, are the most common pain points that candidates encounter while looking for a job?
I feel that spam is one of the biggest pain points for candidates. There’s just so much junk that job portals fill our inboxes with that it takes forever to filter out and apply for a relevant opening. That is if there is any in relevant profile in that heap of spam in the first place. What makes it more cumbersome is that sometimes a relevant job opening gets overlooked in the cluster of spam emails. And by the time you get to it, the application deadline has already passed.
How successful would you say Workship has been in combating these issues?
Workship combats this issue in the first call itself. The initial call is enough for them to understand what we are looking for—at least, that’s what happened in my case. They knew what kind of job I wanted, what kind of companies I preferred and shared only relevant listings with me. The filtering of roles that are suitable of you is taken care of by them and not the candidates.
