As a job seeker, imagine you had an opportunity to get into the heads of Human Resources (HR) professionals to figure out some Do’s and Don’ts that can help set you apart from the competition. At the Easter Job Transition Group on Tuesday, March 17, 2015, the room was packed and the stage was set for a candid conversation between HR and job seekers.
The panel representing small, medium and large companies, with over seventy years of professional experience combined, consisted of:
• Donna Smith, HealthStar Home Health
• JeanAnn Nelson Trombley
• Maureen Wheaton, Cambria
These leading ladies had an engaging, interactive and at times, humorous conversation about their experiences in the recruiting and on boarding process. No topic was off limits as they addressed topics as ageism, what HR is really looking for in interviews and organizational culture fit.
Some of the top Do’s and Don’ts for Job Seekers that came out of the conversation are listed below:
“Having been in job search, I understand the journey that job seekers experience. At the same time, as a leader I also understand what is like to sit on the other side of the table. Bringing HR professionals and job seekers together was a way of sharing, understanding and appreciating the challenges & rewards on both sides. I hope the panelist and attendees took away words of wisdom or nuggets of valuable information that will make the job search process more successful for all involved, “stated Xaulanda Simmonds-Emmanuel, Volunteer Coordinator.
