  • Overcoming Recruiting Challenges and Reclaiming Professionalism

    Posted by Priya Jain on May 24, 2023 at 10:25 am

    I am a recent graduate who has embarked on a career as an HR manager in a well-regarded company. I have been working in this role for four months now. Regrettably, I am facing some challenges when it comes to recruiting and hiring candidates. Although I genuinely enjoy engaging with people and establishing meaningful connections, I am experiencing an unexpected aversion to making phone calls. This change in attitude has caused me to become somewhat brusque, and it is significantly impacting my professional life. I would greatly appreciate any assistance or advice in resolving this issue.

      Indeed, shifting your perspective on phone calls is crucial. Instead of dwelling on potential negatives, remember the value and impact you can create through meaningful conversations. Embrace the opportunity to connect with candidates, understand their qualifications, and assess their fit for the organization.

    Prioritizing self-care is crucial for managing stress and anxiety related to making phone calls. Engage in activities that promote relaxation, such as exercise, meditation, or hobbies, as taking care of your well-being will positively impact your overall confidence and performance. Remember that overcoming this aversion will require time and patience, so be compassionate towards yourself during the process and celebrate even the least progress. With dedication and practice, you can gradually regain your comfort and confidence in making phone calls, ultimately enhancing your effectiveness as an HR manager.
