The truth about cat(s) and dog(s) people!
Apparently, according to the study, ‘dog lovers’ tend to be more lively and interactive. Such hoomans are more energetic and outgoing and pay more attention to civic rules i.e., are conformists (probably because they are so well trained in picking up dog poop!). ‘Cat lovers’, on the other hand, are more introverted and passive. Such people prefer spending time indoors (sometimes they are reclusive) and quite often shun physical activity. According to the study, the ‘cat people’ also tend to be non-conformists, preferring to be expedient rather than follow the rules.Read More »

A recruiter’s life – easy?? – hah, think again.
As an HR recruiter, the one thing that I hear often is –‘Aree aap HR mein ho. Naukri dilwala doh please. Appke toh baayen haath ka khel hai.’ (Oh, you work in HR. please, get me a job. It’s so easy for you) If only it were that easy! If only I were Harry Potter and had a magic wand that I could wave and create jobs to match the expectations of candidates. Sigh! Sadly, I am no magician or wizard. I have not a single drop of Harry Potter-ish blood in my veins. So, I cannot conjure up a job or pull one out of my hat. The life of a recruiter doesn’t work that way. To people what seems easy is in reality one of the most labour intensive work fields. Trust me when I say that my life as an HR recruiter is no cakewalk.Read More »
