Every candidate would want to walk into a job interview prepared and able to nail every question to leave a good impression and land the dream job. Most interviewees would focus their answers around showing how professional, skilled and informed they are. But what do recruiters really want to hear during an interview?
Even though our current digital era is generally perceived as advantageous, it is really and truly a double-edged sword. Using various digital methods to find candidates for top-tier positions can often provide a significant quantity of qualified candidates. However, what about those job roles which require a higher level of sophistication? This issue often results in the endless ‘quality over quantity’ debate.
Working in recruitment has taught me how to appreciate people’s different skills and talents within different positions, industries and sectors. One can communicate on so many different levels that in today’s fast day-to-day life unfortunately people can be taken for granted, hence finding an obstacle to move on. Many opportunities on meeting the right people for the right job could turn out to be a missed opportunity and this could pretty much mean the other way around too.
There’s simply one issue with regards to recruiting top talent. As time goes by, there are fewer people who can actually make the cut and be considered fit to fill in a role.
Quite reasonably, any employer aims at building a team with the best talent out there. Due to a soaring demand, when a highly skilled person enters the market, it does not take too much time until he or she is out of it again.
Searching for a job can prove to be tougher than expected. The employer comes to face a diversity of variables that he or she has no control over. When the candidate’s search is not going as planned, most of the time the job seeker ends up panicking in a very short period of time.
The way you act, feel and think drives your talents and thirst for knowledge and skills acquisition. Unless we make it a point to strive for the better and direct our potential into something tangible, we are most likely to just stay on the same boat for quite a long while.
In any business, specialisation enhances the potential of success. How important is recruitment specialisation in getting jobs filled? The majority of hiring managers and employers are showing a strong preference towards engaging a recruitment service provider that truly specialises in their business segment vertical.
