In the mind of the employer, what does he really want? I used to ask myself this mystifying question after my university education. Though I’d sent a lot of applications, I wasn’t getting any feedback from them.
Everyone has expectations and before one can flow with us, he/she has to either meet our expectations fully or half way. In that same manner the employer has his own expectations for every employee or post.
And in order to get the employer to sign up a contract with you, you have to meet his expectations and standards, and not your standards.
So what are the standards of the employer? What do they look out for when they want to recruit?
To answer this question, I made a courtesy call on some administrators and human resource managers. Some were very frank with me and I would like to share what I’ve been able to gather with you.
In the coming days, I will be discussing these interesting facts with you. I bet you, some of the facts will surprise you. But before we begin the discussion on Tuesday, I would like to leave you with this quote, “When it comes to employment, it’s not about your expectations but that of the employer”
