The labor market I general is adapting each year, especially in aquaculture industry and your role is to be prepared for everything. Read more about how the interview has turned into our day.
Today’s society is increasingly characterized by an acute shortage of time. We are always hurried and pressed for tight deadlines. In recruitment, things are similar, especially in the current context of our country, where the number of vacancies in companies is higher than the number of available candidates. In such a labor market race, recruits have had to adapt and seek optimized recruitment methods to find the people they need. Here’s how the classic interview has turned into our day and what you should expect:
1. Test or Contest
Job interviews tend to scare many candidates. It causes them a state of anxiety that makes them seem less desirable when they face the recruiter. For such individuals, there is a test or contest that eliminates increased interaction and social expectations because it puts you face to face with some problems or situations on paper that you can solve with the help of your knowledge. Thus, candidates can demonstrate their talents without fear of being judged because they do not seem sufficiently friendly to the interview. Just keep in mind keeping up with the delivery deadline and not be afraid to admit if you can not solve a test item.
2. The group interview
When a company has an entire team of employees, rather than interviewing each applicant, it prefers to call a larger group at the meeting to test not only the applicants’ knowledge but also their ability to work in team. It is worth noting that such a group interview is not necessarily a competition. You do not have to overtake others, but rather to support them by your involvement. This will demonstrate to recruiters that you have a team spirit and that you may also have management skills. Any new team needs a leader, is not it?
3. Casting (taste of job on site)
If in your personal life you did not marry someone after the first meeting, why would you sign a contract for a job after a single interview? That’s how the casting came out of this need to simulate a real situation in the office. How does it work? After a brief appointment or a telephone conversation, the employer will invite you to the company’s headquarters for several hours, one or more days, and ask you to do some of the tasks you have in the future job. Depending on how well you handle and the way you interact with your future colleagues, the employer will make the decision whether to make an offer or not. Remember that at this stage you are still in the negotiating position! Your time is precious and if you feel that the recruiter can figure out in 2 days what you are capable of, then you should not accept to work 4 days.
