For an Authentic, Effective Job Interview, You Must First Understand Your Own Personality Type

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Knowing who you are and understanding how that helps you or might not help you in your work and life allows you to walk into any interview for any job and authentically present yourself to the employer.
  • Instead, the MBTI tool is trying to help us see whether we have a preference for extraversion or introversion, along with other preferences.
  • When we see it as a matter of preference rather than identity, we understand thateach of us uses both extraversion and introversion every day to be effective and productive in both work and in life.
  • Ive mentioned only extraversion and introversion so far, but the MBTI has four preference pairs: – – Lets look at how each of your personality type preferences might help you in your work and life.

Why an External Hire Is Not Always Your Best Bet

  • There is a finite number of exceptional internal candidates and a potentially unlimited number of exceptional external candidates, says Steve Hrop, vice president of organization development services at talent development solutions firm Caliper.

  • Research clearly shows that a much higher percentage of external hires fail compared to internal promotions, especially at the executive levels, Hrop says.
  • Hrop also notes that external hires tend to cost more than internal hires, and that external hires need a longer time to ramp up to full productivity.
  • Just as an external hire involves close examination of applicants, vetting high-potential internal candidates takes some doing as well.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Yet, because HR groups handle a great deal of personal personnel data, and many U.S. companies have a global footprint, especially in the EU, HRs participation is critical to GDPR compliance.
  • Not surprisingly, HR technology firms see a market opportunity in providing GDPR-compliant tools and services, which may work to HR managers advantageespecially as the deadline GDPR spells out data privacy practices that include detailed record-keeping, increased security measures (e.g. encryption), responsibilities regarding third-party services and mandatory data-breach notification.
  • Aspects [of the GDPR], like when and when not to rely on consent and the balance between holding onto data to ensure legislative compliance and deleting it, are going to be something of a balancing act for HR teams, according to Sue Lingard, marketing director for U.K.-based Cezanne HR Limited,…
  • For SAP, incorporating GDPR compliance into its SuccessFactors HR suite of applications has been one of [the companys] largest development efforts, says Kim Lessley, director of solution management for cloud security in the SuccessFactors group.
