Most of us cannot avoid them: job interviews.
Unfortunately, many job seekers go through their careers without fully understanding what the human resource manager sitting across from them is listening for. “HR questions” are perceived to be difficult and problematic because they are usually not technical, focusing instead on “soft skills” or “people skills”. Without knowing an HR manager’s mandate or point of view, some candidates feel like they are shooting in the dark – and end up shooting themselves in the foot.
In today’s fiercely competitive business arenas, job seekers who have outstanding “soft skills” and technical knowledge are in high demand. The critical point is to convey that you have these essential skills in the interview so that you get the job you want.
This short talk is for HKU Alumni who graduated 1-3 years ago as well as current HKU Students. Through the talk, you will: - Understand the recruitment viewpoint of an HR manager - Position yourself to make a positive impression in job interviews - Distinguish yourself from the competition - Have the knowledge to project more confidence and authority
- How top-notch human professionals are trained to do interviews
- Different types of interviewing methods
- Problems with interviewing as a selection method, and how HR managers deal with them
- The bottom line for you, the job candidate
