The Hiring Process – Automotive Recruiting

February 13, 2014 in

At On the Mark Recruiting Specialists, Inc., we have always said that “looking for a job” is harder than the job itself.

Specializing in the Michigan automotive recruiting industry and operating as a global automotive electronics recruiter for over 30 years, we have heard every story there is to tell about the hiring process.

If you are one of the unfortunate job seekers that is truly frustrated with the hiring process, you are not alone.  Over the years, Kathy and I have listened to the feedback of thousands of interviewees over the years; if we had placed everyone that said “The interview went very well, I think I’ve got this job” we would be comfortably retired, living someplace warm! One of the key lessons that we learned a long time ago is that almost EVERY interview goes well, but only a select few are the chosen ones.

When Companies are interviewing outside talent for their open positions, it is the job of the hiring staff to represent the company in a positive and professional manner. The interviewers want you to feel good about them and the present opportunity, as it is their responsibility to do this. Once the interview is over, it is the hiring team’s job to determine why they should or should not hire you. Unfortunately, in most cases, you are not the chosen one. The best way to be successful in finding a position is to treat the process as a sales process. Accomplished sales professionals will tell you that sales are just a numbers game, the more numbers you put up, the more likelihood of success. The same approach applies to interviewing, if you find that you are not landing the positions you are interviewing for, take heart, keep plugging away and success will come. The competition is fierce out there and often times the best candidate for the job is not the chosen one.
