Am I on Track?
Every company or organization has both employers and employees for it to function properly. The process of acquiring employees is a rather tedious process, and when conducted employers prefer to do it only once. Some qualities are required for one to acquire employment in any field. The availability of these skills acts as the benchmark to differentiate talented employees from the bad ones. There is ever growing competition between different companies and firms (Tulgan, 2000). This, therefore, causes them to change their methods of administration, and they expect a lot more from their employees for them to compete favorably with their adversaries. This competition is beneficial since by continuously striving to outdo each other the firms eventually provide the best service for its customers. For this reason, employers have changed their methods of employment, as well as the requirements needed to secure a job. The employers require people with certain qualifications as well as skills. (Supiot, et al, 2001)
Availability of these skills enables one to gain preference over the rest of the people also applying for the same job. These skills include excellent communication skills, excellent health and safety skills and diligence (Knapp, 2007). For one to be a valued employee, one should express themselves properly through words, that is, to have exceptional communication skills. This will ensure a healthy relationship between them and fellow employers and their employer, as well. Diligence is the ability of one to complete duties allocated well and on time. This I presume is the greatest asset an employee has because it drives them to improve every day and in so doing, it makes the organization better. Other skills include problem solving skills, good teamwork, customer service skills and literacy skills.
A CV (curriculum vitae) is a document that shows a person’s education history, and work qualifications (Behrends & Anthony, 2011). It is an important document for it is required in every job interview. It saves on time since from one’s qualifications, the employer can shortlist the best candidates for the interview, as opposed to conducting interviews for all the people who have applied for the job. Color personality is the choice of a color instinctually by a person. The choice of the color then is used to describe the personality of the individual in question. This is a non-biased method of determining the personality of the person in question. This method is used because, in some cases, the employers may know the person and may favor them but the color personality test is impartial. Apart from determining the individual’s personality, it shows the mental and physical state of the person (Ritberger, 2000).
