How to hire?
Modern commercial activity givesthe ability to realize themselves in a wide variety of fields, each of which requires a set of specific qualities and skills. Each company uses its own algorithm for recruiting new employees. It is about these algorithms and their features that we'll talk about in this article.
How to recruit new employees
Having work experience is an extremely important point inresume any person. It is on the work experience that most employers are guided by the selection of specialists. But it is not always possible to gain this experience, and in this case it is necessary to be ready for the following stages of employment:
- interview with a human resources specialist or supervisor;
If you do not have any work experience in any particularpost, but you want to start receiving it, then be ready for a full-time interview with a company representative. In this interview, the applicant is usually asked about an understanding of the essence of the work, about his ability to perform certain tasks, and about his vision of the prospects for the development of the profile direction.
If at the interview you behaved confidently anduninhibited, successfully answered all tricky questions, the next stage is coming - you will be offered to perform a test task. Often, this task is similar in complexity to the usual daily tasks for this post, but some companies specifically issue a test test, which is somewhat more complicated than real problems. This is done to verify the performance of the applicant in the most difficult conditions. For example, a copywriter may be given the task of describing a picture with an article of 3,500 characters with a real need of 2500, and call center operators should call 30 subscribers per hour with a planned number of 20 people.
After successfully passing the first two stagesApplicants for a job offer start work with a probationary period. Based on the results of work for a certain period of time (usually 2-3 months), a conclusion is made about the ability or inability of a person to perform work in this position.
If you have work experience on thepositions, then it will be much easier to find a job, but not to any company. After the interview, you can be offered to start working immediately without any test tasks and probation period, and maybe you will have to pass all the tests. Therefore, not always, even with work experience, you can get a job without any problems. Everything depends on the requirements of each company. For example, if the post is extremely responsible, no matter how experienced the candidate, he still has to pass test tasks, and maybe even re-certification.
Non-standard tasks for applicants
Jobs of companies that are very largecompetition, can be played out among applicants in the most unusual ways. The following techniques are known, which companies resorted to when selecting the right employees:
- an impossible task is issued. This test reveals the flexibility of thinking. If a company issues a task, the average person is sure that this task has a solution. The purpose of this test is to find people who are more confident in their intelligence than in the straightforwardness of the company's work.
- Questionnaire with questions not related to work. In the case when the applicants are approximately equal in their qualifications, the management can choose from them the necessary by means of the so-called "incidental questioning". After such a test, people who do not like cats, prefer green tea, or just root for "Barcelona" can not take a job.
- auction of salaries. Again, when it is very difficult to select one employee, the desired wage rate may be the decisive factor. Anyone who is willing to work for a lower pay is accepted. However, sometimes a reverse auction is also used - the "most expensive" bidder is chosen.
