By Leveraging either Social Media Platforms & Job Portals or both, there is a cost, besides tens & hundreds of candidates applications received. The effort required for posting job on several platforms and job portals besides reviewing all the applications, shortlisting the applicants, pre-screening the candidates, follow-up with the candidates depending on different time zone for interviews and ensuring they are able to join the interviews on time etc. are series of challenges without a local HR / Hiring partner in place. The challenge to collaborate with a Hiring Partner without a Local HR team is the Cost Factor. Also many social profiles tend to be fake or contains incorrect details so solely believing or trusting candidates from Social Media is also a risk unlike Job Portals where most of the Jobseekers provide correct information since it is a source for better opportunities
