The thing that I have taken away from this class more than anything else is the preparation that is required before going through an interview process and researching the company. When you are looking at companies to apply for it is very important to do research of that company and to find out what that company is actually about and how they operate. It is very important for you to do this because you will be able to find things about the company on the internet that will be useful information. After you gather all of this information you need to dive into and see if it aligns with your own beliefs and values. It is important that you find a company that fits your values the best because if you are in a company that doesn’t fit your views it will be a hard time to enjoy that job. Along with this, you want a place that is a respectful place that takes pride in diversity and equality. You want an equal shot with everyone else and be able to really make a difference in the company. I think this is one of the most important things I have learned in this class. I will always use this to research companies that I want to work for in the future.
Another thing that is important that I have learned in this class is how to make a proficient hiring process in a company. This is very beneficial because if I plan on starting my own company I can use these processes that we have done for our final project and get great candidates for the job posting. I will also know the associated costs with them and what are the best steps to do. For instance, I will have all of my candidates take the Wonderlic test because there is so much information you can gain from someone that takes that test. I also have learned about the benefits of different types of recruiting and when to do a college recruiter or not.
