3. Win or learn
Delano: “Be genuinely interested in the person your speaking to or sometimes you win/sometimes you learn. In recruitment, even though deals go f**k up sometimes there is always something we can learn from that process.”
4. Take it easy
Krystal: “Get your stories straight, smile and breathe! You own it.”
5. Get acquainted
Farah: “Don’t try to sell yourself. For an hour, forget that you are in the recruitment process and just enjoy the chat with the person you are talking to. Build a relationship with this person. Nice conversations always result in good outcomes – even if you don’t get hired, now you will have a new acquaintance with whom you had a great chat.”
We also had a master of Sourcing, Marcel van der Meer, come into our office recently so we also took the opportunity to ask him the same question and here’s what he had to say: “Turn on your Open to Work”. Sometimes, it just as simple as that. And don’t forget to add descriptions with on your last work experience as well..”
The best way we’d recommend you to apply these tips is to not jump right into all of it. First, notice which tips are in sync with your values and how you carry yourself. Once you’ve figured out which of these tips feel easier for you to begin with, you’ll effortlessly adapt rest of the advices to your hiring journey.
PS. These tips are universal across all industries, so do not limit yourself. The world is your oyster.
Good luck! And, stay #epic.
