Know the Company With Whom You Are Interviewing. GET HIRED!

Know the Company With Whom You Are Interviewing. GET HIRED!Honestly, Human Resource professionals are getting really tired of applicants not knowing a darn thing about the company where they are applying for a job.

“So, what do you know about our company, ABC Manufacturing?” Answer: “Well…you make stuff, don’t you?”

Interview. IS. OVER. It may go on for a while, but your chances of getting hired are the same as the Browns winning the Super Bowl in 2020. We can hope, but don’t bet on it.

It shows that you made NO EFFORT to do any homework, or even to get curious with the front-desk person. If you came from a temp service, it proves you came from the wrong one… and that your recruiter doesn’t care about you or the client. The Recruiter has made you out to be a fool. He or She wasted your time.

Hell, you can get basic information from that thing in your hand; a cell phone. Just Google the company name, go to their website and read up on it. 10 minutes and you are done.

Here are the basics you should know:

1) The actual full name of the company.

2) What they make.

3) History of the company (“About us” on their website).

4) How they make or service their stuff. Most have pictures or videos.

5) Jobs that are open and what the company looks for.

6) Why the company thinks they are good. They say so on the website so customers will buy from them.

7) Important people in the company. Good to recognize these folks in case you talk to them.

Okay, so there it is. The basics. Remember what you read and when the HR dude asks: “So, what do you know about our company?”…and you reply with a 1 minute summary of what you know…you just went to the head of the class.

And, if you really want to make an impression, and get hired, contact a Champion office near you. We know our hiring clients a lot better than the 1-7 above. We’ll give you a HUGE edge.

Get Your Education, But Don't Forget This One Thing...

By Champion Personnel
June 04, 2019 Category: Candidates, Education

It seems that the government, school systems and employers (and media) are all stressing the need for more useful knowledge (learn a skill). Knowledge is good. But NEVER forget that being successful has more to do with your efforts and results than your book knowledge. Employers will hire a hard-working, enthusiastic person who wants to learn WAY before they will hire a person with theoretical knowledge who shows little or no desire/drive or Grit. And they will promote the hard charger years before the person with a piece of paper who shows no drive or motivation. Fact. No Bull. Motivation in action: the path to A Better Job. A Better Life. Ask us how.

Get Paid More. Get Promoted

It is actually easier today than 10 or 15 years ago. More people today miss more work, are late for work or put out just enough to get by. Employers are frustrated and are in urgent need of promotable people they can count on. Here are 4 things you can do to make more money, get promoted or get recognized as an outstanding employee. None of these will cost you a dime: Show up for work, every day, 5-10 minutes early. Be ready to work. This will absolutely be noticed by managers. Even if you are sick, show up and let your employer send you home. Calling off via phone or text leaves questions. Put out 100% of your best efforts. You are there. Might as well. Look for and ask for other things to do, if your job is stalled. You will get known as a doer, someone who can set a good example. Be attentive. Having a focus on your work will, again, get you noticed. People who get noticed for doing good things, acting like a good worker, get raises and more training, and promotions.

How to Tell the Right People Your Boss is a Jerk

By Champion Personnel

Tempting, isnt it? Satisfying? Could be. Do many deserve it? Yes. And no. Being a Boss or Manager is NOT easy. And most receive NO or very little training or coaching in how to be a good one. 75% of all quits today have something to do with leaving a Boss, not the company. So, when do you tell someone about a Bad Boss? After you leave? The day you leave? Weeks BEFORE you leave? Not at all? Here is what to do, if you are looking for a solution, or you want to be considered an exemplary employee (especially if you ARE going to leave, eventually, and want a good reference): 1) Make sure you are darn good at what you do, or getting there. Perhaps any negative comments from the Bad Boss have to do with your behavior or results. If your output or behavior is lacking, some of the sandpaper between you and your Bad Boss is he/she simply wearing thin about you. 2) Write down the actual incidents where the Boss is being Bad. What happened? What started it? How did it come across? Do you have
