A time to recruit

Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai, Pune, Gurgaon - the Indian cities that have "IT " in them will face an exodus this weekend. Techies and non techies alike will leave for their homes this weekend, the Diwali weekend. It is a time to get the most out of the annual leaves and official holidays. As a friend here put it, the only thing you hear on the Chennai Trichy train is "Oracle and Java ".

At least from Bangalore, trains are packed, air tickets horrendously expensive, even bus routes are full. Trains/Buses/flights to Delhi, Bombay, Calcutta, Chennai, Kerala are full as are the buses but there will still be hopefuls who will throng the stations, teriminus and airports to get that last minute tickets.

Bangalore has seen some innovative ways of recruiting, this weekend might see another one. For a potential recruiter (either in Bangalore or in any of these destinations), it would be a smart idea to go advertise/recruit right at these railways stations, bus terminus or airports. But the railway station is the easiest one to pick. What better place for Bombay based recruiter to advertise/recruit than beside the Udyan express on this weekend!
