Mr A is graduated from a designing background with a diploma qualification. He could speak well in English and experienced in designing skills. Besides, he has great personality judging from the way he spoke as well. Everything went well, and to be honest our recruiter is confident that this candidate will definitely get employed. Nothing seems wrong, good attitude, good personality, and perfect working location for him. As usual, candidate profile was prepared and sent to the client company, and he was invited to attend for an interview at client’s place.
On the interview day, he informed recruiter that he had reached the company and waiting to be invited to the interview room. After a few minutes, he texted recruiter and asked for other available vacancies. Recruiter tried to calm him down and claimed that they can have further discussion after the interview session. Few hours later client informed us that the candidate has left the waiting room without inform any of the parties. Recruiter was unable to reach this candidate via phone call, SMs or WhatsApp.
Now, here is the question. Is this the attitude that a well-educated Diploma graduates should have? Mr A probably doesn’t prefer the working environment, or something happened mysteriously in the waiting room, but he shouldn’t missing in action without informing anyone. It literally shows that he does not has the sense of respect towards our recruitment firm and our client company. And with this attitude, it will be a barrier for him throughout the job searching journey.
Attitude is everything, it is one of the most important steps to achieve one’s greatest potential in life. We should always learn to monitor our own attitude constantly, as it impacts on our work performance, relationships and everyone around us.
Lesson learned :
For Success, Attitude Is Equally As Important As Ability.
