From the author:
Corporations tick differently than medium-sized companies
The human resources department in a group, for example, is quite different from a middle-class decision maker. A responsible person in a social Company unlike one from an agency.
And the difference between traditional companies and start-ups or firms in new industries could not be greater. Everyone sees things differently, decides on the basis of specific requirements. Employers are as colorful as the resumes they see.
Selection Criteria Passive training
The selection criteria still include passport accuracy in education and relevant professional experience. While one might expect that the selection of flexibility gains, social factors come to the forefront of the selection, the opposite is the case.
Selection criteria are taken more closely than ever before. And to the existing breaks, personnel decision-makers like to add some.
Beware of the change of the industry
Did you know that changes in the structure of the organization and the change between social organizations and economic enterprises are almost as great a break as unemployment or family leave?
Yes, you read correctly, if you want to switch from chemistry to medical technology, whether you are a bookkeeper or a salesperson, this is not easy for you - no industry experience is the statement of those responsible.
Hurdles that are not
An accountant from the food industry was looking for a new job that was closer to his home. Family commitments no longer allowed for constant commuting. However, there was no food company in its regional environment. So he applied in other industries - without success. The answer is always: "You have no experience in our industry."
There are certainly positions in which industry experience is essential to perform certain tasks. For example, it should be high for positions in research, development and construction. But this does not have to apply to all positions.
Difference in higher positions
The meaning can decrease, the higher the position is. As you can see: today Family Minister, tomorrow Defense Minister, the day after tomorrow ... If the proportion of business tasks increases and the tasks in interface functions increase, the industry's significance could decline.
Examples include: technical sales and purchasing, technical marketing, project or product management. Here, the functional discipline should be decisive and the branch orientation of the CV rather secondary. Unfortunately, practice still speaks a different language.
