Key Observed Pre-Hire Candidate Trait: “Candidate’s Preparation” The Candidate submitted 5-day ‘past work samples’ homework assignment in 5 hours; In the interview, the candidate responded, “I anticipated that [past work samples] homework might be expected and I worked for two weeks in advance on my work samples portfolio. I was delighted when you posited the past-work samples request… and as I was already prepared. The only new thing I had to do was complete the financial analysis of the new data you provided, and this took me a few hours to complete, and I was done.” The Candidate’s work quality submitted was A+, analytical, visual, thorough, and on-target. Not surprisingly, this same level of preparation has accompanied the Candidate's steller performance in the Candidate's career as CFO and difference maker for Americom Technology.
