Other Qualities to Look For

First of all, look for achievement or result orientation. When you ask questions, listen for examples from the person's background where he or she has really enjoyed succeeding and getting results at a previous job.

The only real predictor of future performance is past performance. Probe this area carefully and demand specifics, not generalities: "What exactly did you do and what results did you get?"


Listen for Intelligent Questions

One of the hallmarks of curiosity is that a good candidate will have serious questions, usually written out, that he or she wants to ask about you, the company, the job, opportunities for the future, and so on.

The Right Candidate

The right candidate will want to start as soon as possible. The wrong candidate will have all kinds of reasons for delaying a decision or delaying leaving a current employer.

The worst candidates of all are usually those who want to take a vacation before they start working for you.


Action Exercise

Plan your next interview in advance. Make a list of questions that you are going to ask.

Build them around the skills and qualities that are most important to the successful completion of the job's key tasks.

Don't get caught wondering what you're going to say next.

Adding on to this thread...

Don't trust conventional wisdom...

We once interviewed for an engineering manager position in the US.. took 6 months to fill..

The dumb policy only wants to hire some one who is employed...

There are tons of qualified person who are unemployed not by choice.. but perhaps their plants closed down..

Throw them a life line.. and they will work twice as hard for you...

There is no need to have a perfect fit... interview for aptitude and attitude...and the rest can be trained..

Oh my..what a great policy.

Did you feedback to your boss and the HR about this ?
1. Always wait for the setup. NO SETUP; NO TRADE

2. The trend will END but I don't know WHEN.

How to transform work into worship, that will eventually lead us to wisdom?

The relationship between the worker and the employer, should be like that between the heart and the body.

Both are bound intimately with each other; they depend on each other for their very existence.

Love and affection have to govern the relationship between the two, not hatred or envy.

Work in the spirit of love; it will lead you to worship. That is to say, work without any regard to the proportion of benefit you derive from it.

Work, since it is your duty; work since you love to work, since that is the way you can offer the Divine, the gratitude for the skills endowed upon you.

This kind of work leads you to wisdom, which is the recognition of the Divine in every being.

May the New Year grant you mental peace and may your life's ideal of self-realisation be fulfilled. May all comforts and contentment be added unto you.

Fired by email or phone? Here's how to deal with it by Eileen Gunn

(Reuters) - When Lauren Bossers, who lives in Pittsburgh, worked for a supply chain management software company in Dallas, she dealt with work and staff in the main office virtually, by phone and email.

When she was laid off after her company was acquired in January 2010, well, that happened by phone, too.

With increasing numbers of people working outside of the office, when it comes to pink-slip time, companies often relay their message the most convenient way they can if their employees aren't physically present - by phone or video chat.

Jobs Outlook 2012: Careers Headed For The Dustbin

As the economy reorganizes, some once-steady career paths are being outsourced, replaced or eliminated.

Based on new projections by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistic (BLS), we examined the 20 fastest-declining jobs through 2020. The list is dominated by agricultural, production, and administrative support occupations—adding to a growing pile of careers headed for the dustbin.

The biggest projected losers are farmers, ranchers and other agricultural managers. The occupation tops the list with an expected decline of 96,100 jobs, or 8%, by 2020. In fact, the agricultural industry has been steadily eroding for years. Between 2000 and 2010, the sector (including agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting) contracted by 260,700 jobs.

“What we’re seeing now is global specialization, with the U.S. economy shifting towards services and technology,” says Godhwani. “Anything where the U.S. is not going to be the best, you’ll see the jobs leaving. We can now import food from all over the world.”

The new global economy also means that unskilled manufacturing jobs that require little to no education are also being displaced to other parts of the globe. Sewing machine operators (No. 3) are projected to decline by 42,100 jobs, or 26%. Meanwhile, electrical and electronic equipment assemblers (No. 11) will fall by 6% and prepress technicians and workers (No. 13) by 16%.

Broader changes in technology are also wreaking havoc in the ranks of federal government, home to three of the 20 industries declining the quickest. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the largest job losses are projected for the U.S. Postal Service.

On the decline are Postal Service mail sorters and processors, carriers, clerks, and postmasters and mail superintendents—facing a total loss of 182,000 jobs. Some functions, like mail sorting, will contract by nearly 50%.

Office and administrative workers will also be hit hard in the coming years. Technology advances have enabled modern professionals to take charge of their own typing, filing and phone calls. Thus, switchboard operators (No. 4) will decrease by 23%, data entry keyers (No. 7) by 7%, word processors and typists (No. 8) by 12%, and file clerks (No. 12) by 5%.

Most of the 20 disappearing jobs—including yet unmentioned fast food cooks (No. 5), door-to-door salespeople (No. 9) and florists (No. 18)—require only a high school degree or its equivalent. However, occupations that require post-secondary education are expected to grow the fastest, with jobs needing a master’s degree projected to increase by 22%, a doctoral or professional degree by 20%, and associate’s degree by 18%.

The BLS projects health care services, personal care and social assistance, and construction will experience the fastest growth through 2020.

(Construction is rebuilding to pre-recession levels but is not expected to regain all jobs lost.) The fastest-growing occupations include registered nurses, retail salespeople and home health aides.
