In any job application, have passion. (Part 2)

I have learnt quiet a good lesson in this world of human resource, as an employer, I offer long hours and modest pay, yet I have the pick of the litter when it comes to hiring people. The reason is that I can offer a precious commodity rarely found in business: laughter. People want to work for us. If you can't make your organization fun, you're going to struggle to attract and retain quality employees unless you can offer large salaries and extensive benefits (and those pale in time). People love working in a relaxed environment and having a job that leaves them smiling.

Most middle managers hire people who are not as smart or experienced as they are. After all, they don't want anyone to take their jobs. We take the opposite approach. We hire people who ultimately can take our jobs, who have the smarts and the passion but just need the experience. I want to take up the example of auditing firms, you may not be a fan of them but give it up for PwC, and you have to concede that they are masters of assembling talent. They are not afraid to hire people intellectually and artistically more gifted. As a result, they end up with a workforce that is a combination of these great talents. It is a group of supremely passionate people that contribute to this perception of the Big among the ‘big four’.

Interview with a recruiting agency? What should you expect?

In this world of HR where we recruit on behalf of other companies, interviews will not be the same as those of the company’s HR people. If a company decides to use an HR consultant to the job of interviewing and short listing, they expect a very structured and thorough approach to this exercise. When you attend a recruitment agency interview (which should take about 45 minutes), you should feel confident that the recruiter has all the information necessary to find out whether you are the  ideal candidate for the job. You should know what the contact plan between you and the consultant is and what the next stages in the process are.

Let us now go to the basics, what is an interview? Essentially it is a conversation with a purpose. A informational interview is the most common type that you will experience with an agency; it is designed to get as much information as possible in the shortest time.
