For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Feel free to email me or give me a quick call. I always try to answer applications, but we're all human and things get busy sometimes :) Things That Impress You In A Candidate: I specialize in Japanese-English positions so of course Japanese language skills! But in addition, a candidate that is honest and real with me is my favorite. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: I need your work history, I need your resume. We can work together on the rest and get things sorted out as the process moves forward. Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: Being non-responsive, having a criminal record, lying. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes

Recruiter's Perspective

What's your favorite quote? "Work Smarter, Not Harder" AND "The biggest communication problem is we do not listen to understand. We listen to reply." What do you like to do in your free time? I love to read, watch TV, lift weights, and spend time with my family and animals! In a sentence, why do you enjoy working at your company? There is so much more to a person than a resume and so much more to a position than a list of qualifications; I love making solid matches that can last a lifetime. In a sentence, how does your company have fun on a regular basis? We have a lot of great office events, from the monthly pot-luck to the occasional outings like canoeing. We all get together for fun as well as work. In a sentence, how would you describe the employees at your company? We aren't your typical office! Everyone here has a story and a background that lead them to our family and each of us is quirky and fun in our own way.

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.
