How often do you hear that job-seekers write 50, 80 or even more than 100 applications and still find no job. The guilt is often sought by the potential employers: You are not invited because you are too old, your salary requirement is too high, they do not recognize your skills, etc.
Writing applications - for many a traumatic thought. Should I somehow muddle through by myself - at the risk to make not reversible mistakes? Writing applications, you always have one shot only. Not really clever. So I'd better ask for help. But I will not disclose, finally it´s awkward to admit that I cannot do it alone.
In a structured interview, one at least only scratches the surface, the true personality of the candidate remains more or less hidden. Many questions remain open: Does he/she actually provide sufficient leadership potential? Can he/she decide quickly enough? Is he/she really the innovator, as he/she pretends? Is he/she flexible enough for the job? And many more questions ...
To anticipate it - extremely important! Of course, you run intensive interview talks and try to figure out how the candidates are ticking. Naturally, to a certain extent you can get an impression of the applicant - but is that enough?
Almost everyone who is offered a cancellation contract is standing in front of this question. And now the riddle goes: Should I take the money and save it up for a rainy day? You never have too much money. Or does it perhaps even make more sense to be consulted in the application process?
Have you ever been coached by an outplacement consultant? Did the watch tick during each session? Have you been advised after 90 minutes that the consulting session has expired and you have to leave now?
