BITSAA Leadership Program 2012 - The nitty-gritty

Over 140 applications from enthused BITSians across the globe, a rigorous and meticulous recruitment process spread over two months and finally a fresh batch of new leaders ready to take the mantle and give back to their alma mater; that is BITSAA Leadership Program 2012, our signature recruitment drive to select the next generation BITSAA Leaders.

Over the last few years, the BITSAA Leadership Program has evolved much making it more efficient than the earlier versions. The BLP 2012 experience was quite unique in a number of ways starting from the application forms themselves. The application forms for different teams were different and were reflective of the requirements for the team with detailed job description for each position. We also introduced Process Design & Resource Mapping, a unique exercise to configure the internal functions within a team and map resources accordingly for each function. The outcome of this exercise was a clear picture of the resource requirement for each team. The job description document with the skill set matrix and the role responsibilities helped the candidates a long way in deciding for which teams they were a perfect fit.

BLP 2012 was a huge success resulting in over 140 BITSians applying for various teams and we were able to recruit 80 plus leaders in different teams. Going through each application was no mean task. Each application was reviewed thoroughly through multiple rounds to bring in sync between the candidate’s interest and the organization’s requirement. Keeping track of all this data through multiple stages was a cumbersome task which was made extremely easy by RecruiterBox, an awesome recruitment management tool. The tool had great features, was easy to navigate and use, track comments in different rounds and had wonderful UX/UI. And the best part was, since we are a registered Non Profit organization, they gave us free usage for the entire time. This post would be incomplete without thanking them. RecruiterBox, a huge heartfelt thanks from all of us. You guys are awesome.

We would love to hear you views on the drive and your suggestions to make it better. Please write to with your comments and suggestions.
