Special thanks and gratitude to A Plan by Consultants where people guided us, taught us each and everything. There are a lot many things to learn from him, his sessions were always a source of information and knowledge.

I am so thankful as this internship has provided me with the opportunity to work with such amazing company and wonderful people, and also gave me experience to learn all aspects of Human resource management.


Employees are the Human Capital that makes the organization what it is.  The quality of human capital determines the kind of business the company is able to garner and this quality is dependent upon the process of recruitment followed by the company.

Successful human resources should identify human resource needs in the organization.  Once the needs are identified, the process of recruitment or acquisition function starts.

Recruitment is the discovery of potential candidates for actual or anticipated organizational vacancies.  Or, from another perspective, it is a linking activity bringing together those with jobs to fill and those seeking jobs.  The ideal recruitment effort will attract a large number of qualified applicants who will take the job if it is offered.  It should also provide information so that unqualified applicants can self-select themselves out of job candidacy; this is, a good recruiting program should attract the qualified and not attract the unqualified.  This dual objective will minimize the cost of processing unqualified candidates.

A HR Recruiter has to fish the right talent for a given role by assessing a number of candidates. The recruiter not only has to assess the person on his/ her KSAs but his/ her motivations and has to gauge if the person would fit the organization well. After finding the right talent, the recruiter has to understand the factors that are crucial for the candidate and thus, has to pitch the role in a manner that it aligns with the motivation and goals of the candidate.


1. HRA

House Rent Allowance or  HRA, is an amount which is paid by employers to employees as a part of their salaries. The decision of how much HRA needs to be paid to the employee is made by the employer on the basis of a number of different criteria such as the salary and the city of residence.

2. Probation

Probation is a trial period for newly recruited workers. Probation periods commonly last for three months, six months, or a year. It's usually a fixed period of time at the beginning of the employment relationship, during which the new employee is exempt from some contractual items.

3. NDA

A non-disclosure agreement is a legally binding contract that establishes a confidential relationship. The party or parties signing the agreement agree that sensitive information they may obtain will not be made available to any others.


Letter of undertaking (LOU) is a form of bank guarantee under which a bank can allow its customer to raise money from another Indian bank's foreign branch in the form of a short term credit.
