Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

TCM Professional Solutions would like to wish each and everyone a wonderful and Happy Valentine’s Day.  Please take the time to not only love those around you but yourself as well.

So, enjoy taking this time to celebrate the Love you have for your circle of family and friends.

Employers- Are you prepared for the interview?

An organization is only as good as its employees.   Effective interviewing skills are often overlooked as it relates to the other side of the table (the interviewer).    Managers make quick and ineffective hiring decisions that not only cost the company money but precious time.   I am always tickled by the feedback I receive from my coaching clients who go into interviews with hiring managers that do not know how to interview.  

I have worked with hiring managers who receive room in their budget to add to their headcount and immediately come to me with their approved job requisition in hand with no plan in place.  Hiring managers need to take the time to put a plan in place that lists the critical factors that contribute to a successful hire.

  • Skills required
  • Needs of the company
  • Personality fit
  • Experience and interest

Just as it is very important for a candidate to make a good impression and put in the proper work to prepare for the interview, the hiring manager needs to be effectively trained and prepared to assess a candidate’s skills, abilities, behaviors and attitude.    Hiring managers also should not make a hiring decision based on having a “good feeling” about a candidate.   Skill and personality test should be included in the interview process. 

 You can lose your next top performer because your interviewing approach is haphazard with no strategic approach.  A high performer comes to the interview to assess if the company’s goals, values, culture, hiring manager, performance and business structure match their career goals.  Remember, good hires will help you develop a strong, healthy, productive competitive company. 

Contact TCM Professional Solutions to help you prepare for your next top performaners.

“Know Thy Self”

        

How do you sell a product without knowing everything about it?   When you buy a new house, you expect the agent to know the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, the square footage of each room, if the appliances come with the house, the selling price and the selling price of the other houses in the area that are on the market.  Just as that agent needs to know everything about that house in order to sell it, you should “know thy self” in order to land that dream job.  

Many job seekers underestimate how important it is to know who they really are and what is important to them as it relates to their job search.  The majority of people I coach want to start with preparing their resume however my career coaching programs start with a self assessment.   Starting with self assessment helps you discover your career vision, values, traits, skills, interest and what you really want to do.  We all know that no one is perfect. Recognizing your good qualities along with areas that prevent you from performing to the fullest will help you gain insight into discovering your career fit.

Begin by asking your family and friends about your skills, traits and things they think you do well.  After that, ask yourself questions such as:

  • What are my interests?  What do I really enjoy doing?  What type of activity or environment attracts me?
  • What do I do best? What are three to six of my strongest skills or competencies?  What makes me different from others seeking similar work?
  • What are my values and priorities?  What is important to me?  How does work fit in with other aspects of my life?

I assure you that if you start your job search plan with the process of getting to “know thy self” it will give you direction, make it easier for you to communicate to hiring managers and land that dream job.

TCM has effective career assessment tools that can be administered to help you identify “Thy Self”
