7 ways to become irresistible to job recruiters
DUBAI – What are the top traits in a job applicant that recruiters find very irresistible?
To get on a potential employer’s shortlist and move closer to a job offer, you need to have the 7C’s, said Vagelyn Tumbaga-Federico, Human Resources Director of Dusit Thani Dubai.
The award-winning human resources expert shares with Expatmedia.net what those seven important traits are and why recruiters value them so much.
1. Competent. This is still the first factor to consider. Does the potential employee have the necessary skills, experiences and education to successfully complete the tasks you need performed?
2. Capable. Will this person complete not only the easy tasks but will he or she also find ways to deliver on the functions that require more effort and creativity? For Tumbaga-Federico, being capable means the employee has potential for growth and the ability and willingness to take on more responsibility.
3. Compatible. Can this person get along with colleagues, and more importantly, can he or she get along with existing and potential clients and partners? A critical component to also remember is the person’s willingness and ability to be harmonious with you, his or her boss. If the new employee can’t, there will be problems.
4. Commitment. Is the candidate serious about working for the long term? Or is he or she just passing through, always looking for something better? A history of past jobs and time spent at each provides clear insight on the matter.
5. Character. Does the person have values that align with yours? Are they honest; do they tell the truth and keep promises? Are they above reproach? Are they selfless and a team player?
6. Culture. Every business has a culture or a way that people behave and interact with each other. Culture is based on certain values, expectations, policies and procedures that influence the behavior of a leader and employees. Workers who don’t reflect a company’s culture tend to be disruptive and difficult.
7. Compensation. As the employer, be sure the person hired agrees to a market-based compensation package and is satisfied with what is offered. If not, an employee may feel unappreciated and thereby under perform. Be careful about granting stock in the company; if not handled well, it will create future challenges. JMYDS/Expat Media
