A typical day in our life
What to Do First Thing in the Morning?
Every business opportunity starts from a cup of coffee. All of us brush up our day by a cup of hand-made coffee prepared by our barista. Sit back, relax, enjoy the facilities in our lounge and plan your day wisely.
Today you are assigned with a recruitment mission. You are excited by the ambitious expansion plan of your client, however knowing that their low profile and new establishment would limit industry professionals from envisioning the promising future of this company.
Several candidate names have popped up in your mind. While you keep your eyes closed, your analytical mind is restlessly thinking of the pros and cons of each potential candidate match. Finally you have made up your mind and picked up the phone.
Conversation does not go smoothly but this is what you have expected. It has never been easy for any candidate to take the first step away from their career comfort zone. However, while you are empathetic with your candidate's consideration, you trust your expertise developed throughout the years and believe this career move is what your candidate needs.
"Ok, let's have a coffee with their CEO. Honestly, I am not totally convinced but I have faith in you." Finally, the first move is taken.
Recruitment is never easy, and this is much sophisticated than merely "sending your resume".
"I am just done with the coffee meeting with their CEO. He is smart and visionary, and is definitely the type of leader that I would love to work with. I would say this is the perfect career opportunity for me and could not wait to join his team. Thank you!"
So, do you have what it takes to make this happen?
