Candidates on the GO!
RULES for the Candidates on The GO service:
Are You interested in meeting, talking to, getting to know and possibly hiring one of our candidates? Then you have come just right! Save time, hire a person you like from the outset, someone interested in working for You – and knowing that already before you utter the golden words…!!!
The rules are simple. We have put interviews’ and coaching time into each individual (min 7-12 hrs) and to keep this service going the main cost must lie on the employer, not the individual. Thus to meet a candidate after a first meeting for instance in an event, will only set you back a few hundred lati. Being a member of The LiST you get to know the person a little, BEFORE you decide - how often do you have that opportunity?
A sunk cost, paid in advance. If you decide not to take it further this is the only amount you pay – however, should hire – there is an additional amount MINUS the first amount. What you get is a written report, an evaluation, commentary – naturally we CAN do more for you, maybe run a THOMAS profile learning more about him/her in a different situation? But in dialogue with us -adding additionally what you would like,finding out what's there – let’s discuss!
If you are interested and have not met the person, same rules apply. Naturally we rely upon respect for
the individual and an understanding of confidentiality as a slip of the tongue can cause unnecessary harm.
Thus let us do the reference checking and we maintain in dialogue and all will work better for all involved.
The headlines or titling at each reference code indicates a summary of each person's features.
