Things That Impress You In A Candidate: I am really big on internal motivators. Everyone has a story and I love hearing those stories that make someone who they are and give them a “why” behind their work. If I am able to understand a candidates reason “why” I feel like I really start to learn about who they are. Anyone can say they are able to do something, but I am impressed when someone can give me a specific, real world, relevant example and relate it back to the career opportunity we are talking about. When I am speaking to someone more proactively I always appreciate someone who can clearly communicate what they have done and what would motivate them to make a career move. I love being able to look at someone’s resume and see their career progression with a single company. I think it speaks volumes about somebody’s commitment, buy in, work ethic, and ability to perform the job to a level that is setting them up for the next promotion.
Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: An updated resume, including an updated phone number and e-mail address is SO important.
Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: Bad communication. I think recruiters sometimes get a bad reputation when it comes to communication and follow up, but I can speak for myself when I say that I will always be open, honest, and follow up with a candidate as quickly as possible. In return, I expect the same. Overall professionalism is huge. If someone is going to bad mouth a previous employer, show up to any type of interview late, or act overly demanding then it’s an automatic disqualifier.
Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes
