Employers – know what kind of employee you are looking for.
Job-Seekers – know what kind of employer you are looking for.
Neither side needs to “settle” these days – be aware, be informed, save everyone time and trouble by knowing where you are headed when you go to the job market – and that goes for both sides of the equation!
Employers need to know not just what the job entails, but what kind of employee they want to have on their team – teamwork is where it’s at these days, everyone needs to pull together (forward!) to the same positive goal.
Job-Seekers, you need to know yourselves – know the strengths you have to offer to an employer – know what kind of atmosphere in the working world that you function best in – so you can be THE best for your new employer.
With so much information (sometimes information overload) online these days, an employer can seek out a prospective employee and see what others have to say about them via LinkedIn. Similarly, job-seekers can do a search on the business interactions that their prospective employer has out there in the big world wide web!
