"What do you want to do with your life?" This was a tough question for a 23 year old that had no idea. They also made me discuss a lot about my prior decision making in University and past jobs. A little frustrating at the time.
Office work within a successful company….they did not buy it..
At 23 you should have some idea about what you want to do with your life in the future. If you went to school to study something why not say I study this and I would like to get into this field because I am excited about new opportunities, etc. It's not hard. If you tell them 'office work with a successful company." I would be asking "How do you define success?" What type of office work?
I learned quite a lot with my previous job like prioritizing my tasks, learning how to adapt to different culture differences, be a team player and learn how to resolve conflict in a way that does not affect the work flow and it also made me realize that I would like to do something more with my work and take on more responsibilities.
I will not get caught this time. What?! Is that my phone? Gotta go.
She is very sneaky and should not be placing people in positions. In her interview she acts smart but has no Human Resources Education. I have my masters in Human Resources from University of Toronto and a degree in Finance and found her to be very unprofessional. I listened while she talk just to see what the hell is she getting her information from. She likes to show that she is knowledgeable. Talks about her travels. Well I think she belongs in the kitchen not a CEO of a company!!! Aaron I agree not impressed at all how she still in business hard to believe. Will never use her again.
I mentioned that I will use various types of recruitment boards (from free to not-so-costly) such as glassdoor, ziprecruiter, monster, linkedin, indeed, careerbuilders, Sheridan College Employment Services and so on and then review the resumes that I receive from applicants. I will then invite the shortlisted applicants for an interview. During the interview, I will look out for attributes that match the HSE Group culture and further prune my list (whilst keeping a database of all candidates, in case I still need more people at a later stage). Once I complete the hiring process, I don't stop there, I will go ahead an schedule an on-boarding training with all of them to ensure they understand the organizational culture. I assured them that I will reduce the cost of hiring by exploring job boards that cost little or nothing, and the interviewer seemed to be glad about that.
