The Quest For Knowledge Will Set You Free

Sunday, June 26th, 2016

What are you interested in? We all have a passion for something. So what’s your passion? Are you actively looking for information about your passion? Knowledge, providing it is correct knowledge, increase their power. In this century is a growing demand for experts in many fields. Everything is becoming more and more specialized. Let me give you an example. At the turn of the 19th century, all I had to do to be an accountant would be good with numbers and conduct some training with other accountants. Later, an official certificate is required. It was a special course called a diploma in which up to a dozen specific subjects had to be studied.

Mayor as technology and finance, accounting and taxation became increasingly more complex, more subjects were required to carry out, now about three dozen. The diploma was replaced by a title. Accountants may specialize in the general accounts management accounting, tax accounting and other areas. Employers pay much more for specific talents and qualifications for the job they do in general. So, are you seeking knowledge in your field? Are you updating your knowledge platform on a regular basis? If not, then it is almost certainly going back.

This means you will be quickly overtaken by others who are adopting new technologies and absorb the knowledge that goes along with it. To succeed today you have to specialize in a niche market. Let me ask you a question. Suppose you have created a new and exciting. Do you want a patent to protect their rights. Would you go to a lawyer of age or want to find a patent attorney? Let’s say you require a knee reconstruction. You ask a normal doctor to perform surgery or want to find a surgeon who specializes in this type of re-constructive surgery? You want the best surgeon, right? One more example. If you owned a Nissan car, would you prefer to have a Nissan specialist mechanic? Or entrust the repair of a general mechanic whose workshop is full of rickety old pumps. Finally, do not be fooled into thinking that there is no need to keep learning. We all have to learn continuously. To get more, we need to know more. Not necessarily have to do more, but that also helps. Some people have a couple of years of experience, repeating the experience of twenty years, then I think we have twenty years of experience. Incorrect. They still have only two years of experience who have repeated ten times. There is a big difference. What are you doing to become a specialist?

The Applicant

Give a status defined for each role, since they give support to the frame. The interview itself: In this stage, we develop fully the concept of interview as a process of communication and a key technical resource for recruitment. It is the moment that begins to unfold the link that we have built with the applicant during the warm-up act as link royal road to determine the suitability of the candidate's profile to a specific job profile in a particular company. Questions should be broad and neutral, and which thus allow to be the respondent who gives sense and meaning to the answers. At this point, it is essential to break some myths about the concept of interview. Sometimes, we tend to fall into the temptation of thinking that is the interviewer who holds power in this process. The reality is that in an interview properly managed, it does not.

Thus, the exchange thread emerges from the discourse of the interviewee, the interviewer being responsible for managing and following up the interview. It is important to notice these preconceptions, it is this definition which ultimately determines the style of relationship and communication. Another guiding principle refers to believe that the first impression is that counts. This concept is not only false, but that leads us to interpret what we perceive in the light of our prejudices and prevents us from addressing the respondent with some degree of naivety. Thus, we run the risk of conceiving the interview as an oracle and not as a place of learning and mutual understanding.
