I see opportunity in applicant and employer matching. Think Myers brings on steroids. Glassdoor to the soul. Eharmony of job search. Psycological testing for both
Continuation from above, my pinkie loves the enter button. (MIght add "edit' button to interview question answer area.) Volunteer psycological personality testing for both current and perspective employees. Enabling matching of employers and team members to get the best combination of talent in the same place. In todays mindset it is possible some employers are missing potential star employees because of unitentional bias thinking on behalf of the hiring manager. Consulting with IO psycologist to build a univeral evaluation system would be a starting point.
The first question I replied with a template usually common to this type of questions and the second copy and paste from indeed's website. Got the feedback from the recruiter informing that I was not selected to the second round because I had a few grammar mistakes in my assessment. I understand that English is not my native language, but how can I could have mistakes in my assessment if I copied and pasted information directly from your official website? Waste of time and talent!
Thank you very much for contacting me and understanding my frustration regarding the process at Indeed. To be honest with you this is the first time that I apply for this company, previously I was contacted four times in my LinkedIn. •The 1st time I was struggling trying to understand the recruiter's accent, having in my mind that she was not clear, Valentina her name, just left me talking and said that I was not good for the Portuguese position, fair enough as I was not able to understand her. •My second time Andrea the recruiter never replied my Spanish test. •3rd time a very lovely lady Selene passed me to the face to face interview and I got a feedback that I could not share customer service examples, which I am fine with this. This last time I decided to apply, passed the phone interview, got my assignment and if you are not working in your native I totally agree that you should have a test, got a reply not clear stating that I had grammar errors, not clear in which question. Note that I had a copy and paste from your website. I am no longer interested in your company and I know that you couldn't care less, but the frustration is the sensation of knowing that you were looking for a native speaker and made me spend time for nothing.
This question is not what it seems to be :) I'd answer the following: 'First, I'd find out if there is an internal policy. I'd suppose that the company has a bunch of recommendations already in place, after all, I wouldn't be the only employee in this situation. Most people have family to take care of, in their lives at some point. Policies are very helpful Human Resource tools, perfect for mitigating the impact of the potentially stressful resource variables (for example life situations of the employees) on the daily life of the company. If there isn't, I'd sit down with my supervisor and the HR and work out something that works for both the company and me. It might happen that this would be a good start for an internal policy like this." ...get creative after saying this, because they'll most likely want to know what you'd include in this policy... :) What they want to know is more about how you handle big-impact changes (and hardly anything about your actual plans :) )
