From the application practice: please do not outsource applications!
Svenja Hofert has reported this week on a very interesting case from your coaching practice: A candidate who is too beautiful Casting sent one to automatically think of the staffer "WOW, that's exactly what I was looking for".
Unfortunately, the candidate does not keep what his application promises in the interview, he is silent and reserved, unlike his image. The application has been created by a copywriter and a designer. Result: 15 Conversation without offer.
Bend to catch any straw
ME is an extreme example of how some applicants have to bend. Ghostwriters and designers will be the fewest. Instead, this is often much more subtle:
I have just come across a case where someone is picking up a job search for every straw. Turning in this direction, sometimes in that direction, do not know exactly which direction you really want to take.
Keep each door open
To be self-talking, one wants to spoil oneself with all the doors. However, such a candidate does not have a clear opinion and has no fixed position on many things.
In this way, potential employers do not know at all how they should classify the candidate who is slightly undecided and what he stands for. Let alone that the candidate does not know in this way, for which goal he wants and is now to engage.
If you are wrong, you will not find a dream job!
A big shortcoming, in a job market, where you have to score less and less with average and more and more with excellent performances - and the latter are especially possible when the job is too.
Or, in other words, whoever is wrong, finds his dream job, that is, the activity that really suits him, by no means. Whoever is honest and authentic, perhaps falls at the beginning through so many rasters. In the long run, however, he will find something that really fits him.
More courage to please yourself!
I only think of Regine Heidorn, who told me that her customers appreciate this honesty: because they always know what they are. And because trust is created. For every employment relationship is also a relationship of trust. Anyone who disguises himself undermines this confidence.
In this sense: More courage to please yourself!
