Anyone who's ever interviewed for a job knows that it can be a very challenging and nerve-wracking process, with a good number of questions for us (who have engaged in the interview process) left unanswered. Most professionals understand that they are being critiqued during the interview experience, but do we really know what we're being judged about, exactly? What are the key criteria hiring managers are looking for that we may not be aware of?
To address this question, I was excited to catch up this month with Paul Wolfe, Senior Vice President of Human Resources for Indeed. Wolfe oversees all global human resource functions, including talent acquisition, employee retention, compensation, benefits, and employee development.
He has over 15 years of experience as a human resources executive having served as a VP and SVP at a number of well-known companies, including Match.com, Orbitz, Conde Nast, and Ticketmaster. His specialties include talent acquisition and management, succession planning, performance management, and leadership development.
