We have read numerous articles
on issues from the perspective of an employee or job seeker for successful
career growth; issues like how to write eye catching resume, prepare for
successful interview, and tackle prejudice or indifferent, ruthless bosses and
to get skyrocketing promotion. These all objectives are directly linked with
employer expectation from job seeker or the employed one. I could not find much
information online to know about expectations of an employer so I decided to
write on it truthfully.
Basically it is imperative to comprehend organizations expectations from their
human resources to help them perform in the best interest of the company as well
as for themselves. This comprehension and contemplation will lead to win-win
situation for both the parties.
For job seekers; if he knows well that what an employer expects from people
appearing for the interview he can rate him fairly that he suits for the company
or not and vice versa.
To better understand employer needs to fill the vacant position candidate should
visualize himself on the shoes of the employer that if he has to hire a resource
for his business to perform particular tasks which will directly or indirectly
contribute in his business sustainability and growth which candidate should he
hire. Definitely every employer wants the best resources for their businesses;
let me elaborate “the best” that what qualities job seeker should possess that
employers are rubbernecking for.
I will narrate three major indispensable components with prioritized sequence
which employers usually ponder over in a job seeking candidates.
1. Personality traits
2. Work Experience and;
3. Related Education and trainings.
Companies scrutinize candidates by probing such interview questions which
delineate candidate’s overall personality, work experience and education.
A must have personality trait in a candidate is trust worthiness. He will
perform his assigned tasks meticulously and with complete loyalty. Such
candidates will not be depraved or disguising but earnest. Trust worthy people
develops confidence, respect and growth for themselves not only in the eyes of
the employer but in the whole industry.
Second foremost personality trait is attitude and behavior toward the assigned
roles, team members, colleagues, customers and all related stakeholders. How
does one react in stress and work pressure actually reflects through his
attitude and behavior, in hard times keeping calm, avoiding blame game and
mutually resolving “our” issues as a team builds credibility and ultimately
leads to the prosperity.
Now a days work related technical or managerial experience is highly desired by
the employer companies mainly because experienced resources mitigate risks of
errors, bring novelty and save company’s time and money. Experienced people are
considered masters of their art basically they had confronted diverse situations
in their career life which is proved to be a revenue generating asset for the
Education and Trainings:
Education and trainings are one of the contributing factors to increase the
expertise in their related field of interest. Education gives theoretical
knowledge, analytical skills and ideas, Trainings help learn new ways and
methodologies to perform given tasks.
On the shoes of employer an interviewee candidate will think that what value he
can add for the good of the company business and how to solve challenges faced
by the company; he must have sure knowledge about company business, footprint
and infrastructure before the interview. Practically very few candidates thinks
like that they are either overconfident or scared if they will get the job or
not and rarely give a thought that what a company expects from them is more
important than that of their fears.
