Pehchan kaun?

I love my job, I love my colleagues, I am planning to stay in my company and take the gratuity after 5 years. It seems HRs are reading blogs and hiring candidates. The blogs give them insights on the personality of the candidates. So I am going to write only good things about people and bosses. Kindly forget me cribbing about my client Mrs. M in an erstwhile organization and my boss doing the monkey act. It is in the past. I only have good things to say about my present organization. So, Pehchan Kaun? This is Karunima in the blog world. I consulted a numerologist and I have been suggested I add a ‘K’ before my name.

I say, I really admire the HR profession. Infact, I’d want to be one, the one who read blogs. I’ll put all my efforts and take it one step further by even commenting on them. To talk about my credibility, this is what has happened. Before I joined, there were some 2 bonuses in a year and two hikes. After I joined, the bonuses have become once a year with no increase in the percentage, hikes are still unheard of at least until today. My team used to get overseas assignments. We are not software programmers and we are not sent for long durations, but it was there. After I joined, that has also stopped. Therefore, I am the right candidate to be hired by all counts, not to forget that some erstwhile company that I worked for has closed down or has changed the line of business.

That was about work. I have been closely following up the papers on how Hyderabad is reeling under one tragedy after another. I am going to Hyderabad this weekend. Will be missing J as I had visited the place first with her. Bitch, why did you get married? While at it, we will be visiting a home for the aged and spend some time with them. I have always been involved in projects dealing with kids. This is going to be a different experience all together.
Wanted to meet M but the bugger has been sent to the UK for a year or so. Blessed him over the phone not to be screwed by the project. I asked him to earn a lot and buy me something nice, be it from there or from here after coming back but buy. Boy, I should have at least copied my way to an Engineering degree.
I am hoping no bridges, flyovers collapse or any blast happens at Hyderabad as one of my friends has already backed out.

I've heard much about HR folks being jobless enough to read blogs and visit social networking pages before hiring. I frankly have never experienced either. IMHO, it's a function of the demand and supply of people and of course the joblessness of the HR community. The larger question to ask is, does personality matter to an employer? Obviously not, if the employer is doing well enough to offer the right incentives, financial as well as non-financial. And personality really takes the back seat if it takes any seat at all when there are more jobs being offered than the people exist to fill! And honestly, with aggressive targets for hiring, the HR folks are no longer jobless enough (probably not skilled enough either) to give two hoots about personality.
