The Nitty Gritty Interview Details

We’ve all heard “the new normal” more times than we can count. When it comes to the workplace, so much has evolved since the start of the pandemic. Organizations are changing the way they work, and candidates are in the driver’s seat. However, the interview process and the questions asked have remained the same.

Reimaging a World Without RFPs

Imagine this – you are interested in building a home. Contractors are plenty and you want to hire the right one to support your vision. Before you see any of their work, you ask them to fill out a fifty-page document so they can describe who they are. A couple weeks and one novel per contractor later, you set a meeting and ask them to tell you what they can do rather than asking them to customize your dream home.

The Art of Human Design

There is a big shift happening throughout our country as we move to understand the value of different personalities.

Mid-Career Review – What are leaders looking for in an employer?

For those who are two decades into their careers, the workplace has changed dramatically in that short amount of time. When they got their first job, it was still the “first one in, last one out” mentality of how to be successful and how to get recognized for that next-in-line promotion.

The Ineffectiveness of Either/Or Assessments

With countless personality assessments out there, it can be difficult to decipher between them all. Which one is right for your organization, and which one will give you the biggest bang for your buck? At Mission Recruit, each of us has been through several “either/or” assessments, all of which ask the same set of questions. The purpose of these “tests” is to understand who you are and how you can work better with your team. However, we find these results fall short in providing real value.

Determining the Right Culture Fit for You

When jobseekers are on the hunt, you’ve got your ducks in a row when determining what to ask your potential employer. What does the team look like? What do you see for the future of this role? Is there a career path? And while we try to understand the company culture during the hiring process, it can be hard to get the answers you need in the few questions you ask.
