For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Email Things That Impress You In A Candidate: Integrity, vision, ability to gel in quickly. Additionally, I love to see candidates who have spent time researching the opportunity and company offering versus blindly hitting apply based on a description. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: Phone number, email id, resume, best time to contact. At a high level they have to include a resume that reflects experience aligned to the position for which they applied. Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: I love to see people who aren’t happy with the status quo and want to join and disrupt the norm and ask questions. I don't like job hopping, attitude. Even if someone has ‘Rockstar’ hard skills in their domain a demonstrated lack of emotional intelligence is a deal breaker. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes

Every hiring manager looks for different skills in the job candidates they're hoping to hire. Not only are job candidates being evaluated on the hard skills they possess; they're also being evaluated on their soft skills—the skills that don't belong on a resume but can be identified during a job interview. It's these soft skills that separate the good employees from the great ones. Executives, managers, and other leaders within an organization keep this in mind when interviewing job candidates and reviewing the performance of current employees.
