How to choose your employer
Deepika Jain

In today's competitive environment, it is understandable that it is difficult to get a job easily. When you think of a job, the first thought that comes to your mind is that you will grasp the first opportunity that comes your way because you don't have much say in the whole process of recruitment. However, it's a myth we have been living with. When you appear for an interview, it is as important for you to ask questions as it is for the recruiter. You need to do some homework too about the company, its growth plans, its past and its general reputation in the market. You can meet people in the related field, friends, and acquaintances or read something about the prospective company. You should collect as much information as possible and draft a rough idea about the future prospects of the company. Moreover, you should enquire about the nature of job, skills required and other related questions to get a rough idea about the job profile. Often people join in haste but once in the field, they realise that a certain job is not suitable or the pay package is less than the market rate, or some other problem. Hence, one should be sure of the company and the work one opts for, before taking the plunge. Whatever your role, whatever your occupations, you are a powerful individual. You contribute to your employer's wealth, power, positions and career advancements. Your contributions to your play are extremely valuable! As a rule of thumb, in a well-run enterprise, your contributions to your employer's fortunes will be worth several times the total of what you cost. Probably more so. Did you get that? Several times your cost. By any conventional measure, you are more valuable to your employer than employer is to you-at least on a day-to-day basis. And when you perform your duties well, your role is extremely valuable to them.

Therefore it's a two-way process and not a master-slave relation. Look for employers that create positive, outward-looking workplace environment. Not every organisation has the luxury of being able to choose such a course. Turnaround times in large organisations, for example, demand that tough cutter-like decisions are made early. And decisively. There is no room or call for sentiment in these situations; employees who cannot be afforded; it is weak business practice to assume otherwise.

Employers are assessing you from the outside to determine what you are really like on the inside. And, prior to any meaningful conversation, they could be making assumptions about what you are like as a person, as a possible co-worker and if they want to get to know you better. So don't forget to maintain your confidence by recognizing all you have achieved in attaining the interview, trust in your qualifications and potential, and know that this is your time to shine. We are not born with an interview style, or with the inclination to like the experience of being scrutinized by strangers but keeping some essential points in mind and keeping your eyes and ears open, you can strike a mutually favourable deal.
