Our goal at MetaSkills Recruitment & Training Consulting is to establish ourselves as a superior boutique firm in the field of Leadership and IT recruitment. By sourcing top-tier talent, we assist companies in resolving their recruitment-related issues, enabling them to achieve their goals.
When building productive relationships, we always refer to a quote by Suzy Kassem: ‘Treat your relationship as if you are growing the most beautiful sacred flower. Keep watering it, tend to the roots, and always make sure the petals are full of colour and are never curling. Once you neglect your plant, it will die, as will your relationship.’ By following this guidance when managing relationships with my clients, we have been able to not only improve client satisfaction but also increase revenue. Our approach to recruitment is rigorous yet simple and focuses on resolving “real-world” problems in this space.
At Meta Skills Consulting, we prioritize providing meticulously screened candidates to minimize rejection rates and maximize productivity. The firm was founded by Neelanjana Choudhury, an accomplished HR and IT industry professional with extensive corporate experience and international certification in Soft Skills training and recruitment.
Unique selling proposition/ competitive advantage:
At the core of our recruitment philosophy lies a rigorous, yet uncomplicated approach that seeks to address practical challenges in the industry. Our focus is on presenting thoroughly screened candidates to minimize rejections and improve overall productivity. Quality is our top priority, as demonstrated by our remarkable 99% candidate selection rate across all positions, including those in service and product-based companies. What sets us apart is that our team comprises entirely of women who have successfully restarted their careers after taking extended maternity breaks. Despite the challenges of a prolonged career gap, their zeal for recruitment remains unparalleled.
Challenges faced during the journey:
During our early years, acquiring clients was a major obstacle, as candidates typically gravitate towards established and credible brands. However, by initially partnering with small start-ups, we gained invaluable insights into the market and its intricacies, which bolstered our confidence. Through persistence and unwavering dedication to client satisfaction, Metaskills has now evolved into a trusted recruitment partner for industry leaders, while simultaneously collaborating with promising start-ups. Our commitment to delivering exceptional outcomes remains unwavering.
Advice for women entrepreneurs:
Success is the result of hard work and perseverance, as there are no shortcuts to achieving one's goals. It's never too late for women entrepreneurs to resume their careers after extended breaks, and we take pride in our all-female team while encouraging other women to join us on our mission. To promote both personal growth and business development, it's crucial to read extensively, experiment, and explore new frontiers. Building a strong brand requires consistent effort and leveraging social media platforms like LinkedIn to establish valuable connections.
“Success does not mean never falling. It does mean that you refuse to give up every time you fall”.
