Interviewed by The Success Today – A Digital Webzine
Few words about Dr Shilpa total and her Business.
I am a pathologist and running my path lab viz: Kushal Pathology Lab, in the city of Aurangabad (MH) for the last 21 years. Besides that, I also run a medical recruitment consultancy viz: MediRecruiters @ a Pan- India level, for the past 10 years.
We will soon work at a global level in Recruitment.
We’ve got a database of around 7 – 8 lacs of Doctors all over the country as we are the only consultancy in India where the speciality doctors are directing it whereas all other healthcare consultancies are headed by non-medical staff. With my vast experience, seniority and speciality in this field, I often counsel the owners of hospitals, wherever needed.
We have a team of vibrant recruiters and we as a team have done many difficult tasks by recruiting the candidates in deeply peripheral locations too.
What made you to start a journey in this industry?
Being a multitasker & a high energy person, I wanted to use my energy channelise and talent for the right cause. I can’t sit idle for long. In just few years my Pathology lab got set due to senior, experienced candidates & perfect systems. We now have three collection centres in various parts of the city.
What services or products do you offer and how is it beneficial for your customers/clients?
In MediRecruiters, our major expertise is in Doctors recruitment. Along with that, we provide medical staff like HR, Admin, Marketing executives, Nursing supervisors and to all the hospitals.
What are your achievements so far in this industry?
We – MediRecruiters, have been awarded by many different organisations out of which are QCFI, MSME, CIMS. At CIMS we were awarded as the best medical recruitment consultancy of the nation and received the award by Devendra Fadnavis (Former Chief Minister of Maharashtra). In the past 10 years, we’ve recruited 500+ speciality doctors in around 35+ locations and in approx 150+ hospitals.
Altogether we have recruited around 1200+ candidates, both Drs & non-Drs.
What makes you passionate and motivates you to do your work tirelessly?
It won’t be possible without the support of my family and my team members (staff) I hold huge gratitude for being so supportive in this journey. One of my strengths is that I’ve got really good convincing skills due to which i can connect very easily with any stranger. I am a very social person so I really enjoyed doing this work and also i found that it is the need of the hour for doctors and hospitals to be recruited or to get the right candidate and we are working as a problem solver for them, this motivates me to keep going on.
If you had one piece of advice to someone who is about to start their business, what would it be?
“Consistency is the key”.
I advise you to not give up at any cost. Once you start a business, then there is no looking back. Doing a business is like being on a roller coaster ride. So keep going & fighting in any situation.
“Don’t go for the flight mode, go for the fight mode”
