A candidate walked in to my office today. Lets cal him Manish. He is a diploma Holder who passed out in 2010 or should have. He has 2 more backlogs which he is clearing one by one. Apparently he started with 6 backlogs.
His father is an ex Tata employee from Jamshedpur now retd. His brother is married and has moved out and 2 sisters married and settled.
He is taking care of his parents.
Past three years he has been working for a Construction Equipment Firm in Sales. He came to meet me because his company was making some strategic changes and his job might become redundant.
Now why am I telling you this? Well, I haven’t come across a person with an attitude like his in a long while.
He has just 3 years exp but he has such clarity about his role and what he needs to do . The approach to his own career search for instance. He has a target to land another job by the 3rd of Dec. In fact I intend to check with him on the 3rd if he did land a job. And I am quite sure he would have.
I wish I could meet more candidates with this kind of clarity and attitude.
