Identifying your next step, you might have found out yourself. If not, we are ready to take up the challenge together and write your roadmap for a successful career!
Your next step!
Our highly trained and experienced staff will provide you with career advice as long as they feel competent in your field of expertise.
Whenever your profile matches one of the active open assignments from one of our clients, you will be invited for an interview at ProfilerConsulting. Next to these obvious opportunities every consultant uses a series of wild cards to invite people they perceive to be high potentials for an open interview, focusing on how a collaboration could become reality in the future. Upon request, our consultants will provide you feedback.
Every interview is different, but our consultants will make sure to discuss all necessary topics with you in order to have an objective view on your profile after the meeting. Therefore, you can always expect the following topics during your session:
- Academic background
- Language skills
- Main characteristics of your personality (based on situations)
- Past & present experience
- Future aspirations
- Present and desired remuneration packages
- Flexibility: potential expatriation, travel opportunities, work-life balance
- Present labor market situation as well as potential vacancies in our portfolio
The essence of our profession is about respecting information, as people trust us with only disclosing it under certain circumstances. A candidate clearly has to approve of his or her file being presented to a potential new employer. Our job also consists in making our clients aware of the fact that this kind of information is highly sensitive. Our staff is trained to listen a lot yet reveal information only when needed.
We will advise you only if we feel competent and your (implicit) questions fall within our field of expertise. Assisting people in important career decisions is a serious matter which needs to be done in a privileged one-to-one discussion and which has nothing to do with social chit-chat.
We will therefore take your questions seriously and provide you with all necessary information we can give you about a particular vacancy, client’s organisation, further steps in the recruitment process etc.
All candidates are treated with respect, without any prejudice. This means we consider you to be a unique individual on this earth with equal rights, whatever your age, gender, racial, socio-cultural background etc. Selection parameters will be applied based on our clients’ ethically acceptable criteria. Equal opportunities will be granted to everyone once objective selection criteria (such as technical expertise) have been objectively established.
We will not push you into accepting another job if you are not convinced and we will help you make a difference between the quality of your present job (which you ought to keep) and classical change aversion before any big change in life.
In order to be in a position to correctly assess the potential match between your profile and our clients’ needs we need access to all relevant information. We will therefore need you to honestly answer our consultants’ questions. The consultant will also be in a position to give you better career advice if provided with genuine information. Typical questions are: Why do you want to leave your present job? What kind of job/environment is important to you? How important is money for you vs. work-life balance, learning opportunities etc.
In today’s professional world, made of numerous best practices, people are expected to deliver what they promise. The way you behaved in the past, the way you interact with our consultant and potentially with our client will inevitably reflect on what people think of you.
Changing jobs is a serious matter including thorough preparation of essential questions like expatriation (with your spouse and kids?), demonstrated interest for our clients’ organisations (websites, annual reports etc.), respect of appointments, words given and contracts signed…
Whenever – in the course of a recruitment process- we trust you with (oral and/or written) information about our clients’ organisations, we expect you to be worthy of that trust and treat that information as highly confidential. There is nothing wrong with candidates asking themselves questions about a job change or even with you no longer wanting to work for our client (that’s what interviews are for), but you should share your thoughts with our consultant for them to better guide you, one way or the other, in the best interest of all parties
