How do you know a good candidate from outside your industry?
Oil and gas companies are reducing staff - good people with skills and experience
How can you know whether these people can transition to your industry?
Criteria to determine a good employee from outside your industry:
- What is their personality profile and does it show flexibility?
- How much of an overlap of basic skills between last and potential job?
- Are they trainable - professional certifications from their industry?
- Do they have a history of being promoted?
- Do they have a stable work history?
- What are their accomplishments and do they relate?
The challenge and the newness is refreshing and invigorating to them.
