The following are key personality traits we look for when recruiting a candidate…

  • They won’t accept an offer until job objectives have been clarified. Make sure they are hired based on their ability and motivation to achieve these objectives.
  • They demonstrate the process of success during the first 30 days on the job. They understanding the problem, conducting trade-off analyses, putting plans together, obtaining needed resources and approvals and then successfully executing the plan while overcoming obstacles and roadblocks along the way.
  • They demonstrate critical core competencies right away. Taking the initiative is probably the most important, demonstrating a technical skill or personal strength.
  • They want to build up their personal capital. They accelerate their launch by working as long and as hard as necessary. This will quickly establish their reputation as someone who’s reliable, flexible, and hard-working. It’s hard to break a good reputation and harder to fix a bad one.
  • They become visible. They make things happen. It could be finding a mentor, getting assigned to an important cross-functional team or handling a difficult assignment and presenting the results to an executive.
  • Doing something dramatic to establish their leadership style. If they are in a critical role with tight deadlines, they need to demonstrate that they are the right person to handle it right away. Being cautious isn’t always the safe thing to do.
  • Not afraid to ask questions. Asking lots of questions demonstrates confidence and inquisitiveness. Not asking questions to prevent being considered foolish is foolish.
  • Demonstrate strong team skills. They need to quickly forge important relationships with peers and subordinates. Volunteering to help or coach someone you they need to will pay dividends in the future.
  • They don’t make excuses. They just get it done.

Our Vision and Goal is to attract the right people to the right jobs at the right time and the right place.
