If only you could ‘swipe right’ for you career!!
The parallels between looking for your ideal partner and your ideal job
are remarkable – here’s a few:
• The search for both has largely moved on-line
• Initial excitement can quickly evaporate
• Both parties tend to give a flattering portrait of themselves
’ process can be interminable
• Both a relationship and a job can frequently end in tears
• Nothing beats finding ‘the right one’ in either case
Here at PeopleSource
we posted a role recently (an exciting senior finance role, needless to say!) which was viewed 2,000 times resulting in 239 applications or about 12% of people who ‘swiped right’! Ah, but how many do we consider a potential life partner?
Only about 20% of applicants were based in Ireland and while long distance relationships can work, we all know it’s a lot more difficult.
We narrow down our search and start the ‘dating’ process only to discover that some of the people we like best are driven by money alone, or have commitment issues, we’ve all been there.
So, we’ll leave you to sort out your own love lives, but whether you’re a candidate
, in the career business we see ourselves as a hybrid, part Tinder and part matchmaker, using technology and algorithms but also face-to-face and personal recommendations; a place where knowing both parties in depth can help unite partners who were ‘meant to be’.
The value of a great network, knowing candidates and employers is still an important part of the recruitment process, especially at a senior level. Technology is an enabler and nobody has yet developed an algorithm to replace a great personal relationship.
We’ve got your career covered, or we know where your next great candidate is – who you spend your life with is your decision!
