1. After reading the article, briefly summarize the key points, concepts, strategies, lessons learned, etc. This part of the hiring process makes me the most excited. I think employers need to think about employee engagement well before they hire someone and this chapter was a good example. The book talks about different hiring processes from a couple of different companies and how they sort through candidates to hire them. The companies mentioned matched the candidates with the people they would be potentially working with or for and acclimated them to the company culture. I wish my last employer knew how to do this. I feel like deciding on your “target employee” is similar to deciding or getting to know your target market and you also have to decide how your candidates will meet the needs of the organization, just like how your product will meet the needs of your customers. The rest of what I noted included: identify and preserve your history, share your stories, strive for consistency, have the courage of your convictions. Identify and preserve your history. Employees need to know the history of where they work. I loved hearing stories of where I worked and where things came from. I feel like it builds a sense of loyalty and “knowing your roots”. Share your stories Similar to my previous bullet point. Stories can be anything from how the organization came to be, people who used to work there. I still visit the gift shop I worked at (it’s at a church) and we tell stories about what it was like to work there to the new folks who are there now. Obviously, not everyone visits their old workplaces – that’s unique because I worked and grew up in the church there too. But hopefully, this makes sense.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
