Self-confidence and concept
However, he has two crucial qualities: He is very self-confident and therefore unbelievably convincing. And he takes heed to an old rule: He shows the gentlemen and the lady first the cold shoulder, which visibly irritates her. Because not a few people almost jump on disinterest.
Finally, he also has a ready-made concept in his pocket, which underpins his competences. Say: He knows what he wants.
What happened if…
I admit, of course, such a behavior is probably exaggerated. Nevertheless, this invites you to an interesting mind game - also in view of the future possibly impending shortage of skilled workers: What happens when applicants simply turn the tables? And what happens if you actually see Springer doing this in an interview?
Will someone try it out and then report it? I think I'm interesting.
What is Springer really looking for?
At Springer, one does not look for employees but young entrepreneurs, so-called Media Entepreneurs - that makes the appearance in the video more logical.

Your opinion is in demand: For an article in the career world, I still seek opinions. Do you think that's just wrong or does such an applicant have a chance? The article is due to appear in the Career World in October.
