UNIT 3 Worksheet 2
I feel that is important to talk about an issue facing students and recent graduate students, which is getting hired in a top-notch company like Lockheed-Martin. This type of companies is hard to get into it even for internship position. Most of the companies prefer to hire a candidate that has long period of training and have done many projects, or through referral, that’s mean the candidates (students) should have good networking or previous training to have a chance to get hired, which is hard for them.
Such discussion would bring many benefits for both sides the candidates and the company. The candidates will know the fact of the hiring process or based on what factors the companies pick their candidates and then they prepare themselves for that fact. While the benefit that the company may gain from such discussion that the hire managers should aware about the problem that faces student and recent graduate, also to put in their consideration that the students having a lack in having networking and also having a lack to have long period training. The hire managers should have another option to consider the candidates.
The companies (the hire managers) should have another option such assign an evaluation project or unpaid training. Choosing the wrong candidate will cost the company a lot, bad reputation and the salary that paid to the wrong candidate. To avoid this problem the company can offer unpaid training then after that evaluate the candidate then choose the right one. I believe this idea will help both sides the candidate and the company. The candidates will have fair and wide opportunities to have the job opportunity. While the companies will choose the right candidate without losing money or reputation
Some of the website that help me to recognize some problems like zipjob website, it shows me how the network is effective in the hiring. Also indeed website help me a lot gathering idea through the comments that the readers post about how hard to get hired.
