Job Seekers: Recruiters Share 12 Things They Want Right Now

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

  • A few weeks ago, I was facilitating the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) seminar on Talent Acquisition: Creating Your Organizations Strategy and we got into a discussion about candidate preparation for interviews.
  • There could always be subtle nuances to the job because of the industry or company culture.
  • I dont know that organizations are as focused on the plan itself, but they are focused on candidates who have a career plan.
  • If the recruiter answers all of your questions about the job and company, have a couple ready that they cant possibly have answered like Whats your favorite thing about working for the company?
  • Organizations want to know that candidates are going to be able to assimilate to the company culture and that theyre going to be happy at work.

Ways to Improve Relationships at Work – HumanTelligence

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

  • If there are no proper relationships, then the work environment would not stay positive, which would eventually result in the drop of work quality.
  • One needs to make sure that there is an open communication about the professional work, which would make people comfortable with each other in the organization, resulting in a good relationship with each other.
  • Knowing what is happening around in the organization and understanding the employees helps in building up relationships with them.
  • Working for the entire time is not possible by any individual, and small perks helps in building relationships among people.
  • The company needs to know that opinions from every individual must be taken, for a proper working of an organization.
