In my many years of Human Resource Management practice, I cannot recall any more of how many thousands of job applicants I have interviewed both past and present. In one utility company I worked before, we have around 800 employees that are working on a contractual status. This situation requires my office to recruit at least 200 employees per month. Can you imagine the bulk of applicants we dealt with every day?
That was a very tiring experience, yet it had helped me to hone my skills of screening job applicants and even in psychological tests interpretation. Perhaps that was one experience also which gave most of my staff the opportunity to master the Human Resource Management. It is evident with what had happened to the career of those who had worked with the department I was managing before. One of our staff became a General Manager in one big food business in Bacolod; another became a hiring manager in one big company abroad. Three of our staff are now HR Managers, another is a Bank Manager. I am not claiming for the success of these people, but I guess they cannot deny the fact that our workload and the kind of opportunity and exposure we gave them before really helped a lot.
A Training on Job Preparedness for the graduating students of Colegio San Agustin -Bacolod
Today, thousand of graduates are being produced by colleges and universities. Unfortunately, not all of them can land to a good job and I am sure thousands are still going around to find their luck.
Thanks to the call centers we have which provides thousand of jobs even to those that are not college graduates. But not everyone is acceptable in call centers.
With the scarcity of job opportunities to our graduates today, the more that every Colleges and Universities must prepare their graduates in finding a job. One of which is preparing for a job interview.
A job interview is one of the most drawn-out and intimidating ways of making the first impression.During the interview, one must convey his readiness for the job.This is quite a challenge, especially for the first timers.
The presentation below is one of the latest material I composed for those preparing for the job interview. I hope this can be of help.
