Of all business exercises

Of all business exercises

Of all business exercises, the most abstract is the employing system. The brutal truth: Human inclination and stomach feel are complex pieces of the employing system, and hence, there’s no all inclusive recruiting procedure.

From both sides of the desk, the hiring process is ultimately an emotional process. What might be a deal-breaker for one interviewer might be ignored by another; So goes life and the hiring process.

Are you a pizza fan? If indeed, what fixings? Are you a fan of westerns, sci-fi, romance, action, or thriller films? Do you track down Seth Rogen entertaining? Do you have a pet dog, cat, or fish? Coffee with milk or cream?

Your preferences can be combined infinitely. Apply this human truth to recruiting administrators and subsequently why the employing system is full of human inclinations.

Each job seeker inquires: What qualities are employers seeking?

The response: There’s no alliance of “managers.” Employers are individual HR managers, C-suite executives, department managers, business owners, and recruiters who are looking for employees to solve their problems. They also have their own human biases and specific pain points.

My guidance: Your mannerisms, attire, and résumé format should not be overemphasized. These do have a lot of weight, but how much weight they have varies greatly from employer to employer, industry to industry, region to region, and interviewer to interviewer.

Good natured vocation mentors tell work searchers the equation for effective work looking is A + B + C = “You’re recruited!” How can there be a formula if “gut feeling” is at the heart of every hiring decision?

On the two sides of the employing work area, everything goes into “the blend” — past recruiting botches, predispositions, shared characteristics. Stop looking for the wrong jobs and employers if you want your success in the job search to grow exponentially! Think: I am not seeking employment; I’m searching for my clan.

Find employers who understand you. Find people who share your interests. Search for where you feel good. Look for companies with which you can identify and are proud to be a part. I know, more difficult than one might expect, however definitely worth the work.

Yes, there are fundamental rules for looking for work, like making sure your résumé is free of errors and not chewing gum during interviews. But “principles” can change.
