Hired.....Part 1 of being a employee?

Yo ! Morning all

I'm writing this short blog post as part of my insomnia routine. Kidding la , kidding. I just happen to be awake at this hour. So as most people know , usually as students , we get to undergo internships . I did my stint with a local sme . After ending the internship , the fine peeps over @ Xpresstuition made me an offer i couldn't refuse , as most of y'all might know , ah boy is pretty happy being a business owner and i kinda enjoy my current life lol.... so if you were to get me to be an employee that goes into office from 9 to 6 ..... i think i would go NUTS lol.

Yeah , so when they offered me to head up their new business development department , i was pretty happy la (OK LA , I WAS PRETTY EXCITED lol , from intern getting promoted!! ) Ya la , long story cut short. The low down was that i'm exempted from going to office daily , and that i get to interview and form my own team. Good news was that management agreed. Problem was that i had no idea of how to interview people!! I mean when i hire employees , i could hire them as it's up my alley , i know the stuff that i need (pun intended) . Now,being in a totally new market , i didn't know what qualifying criteria and expectations i should have. So i did market research on my future competitors and also on the business team that they have.

I noted that most have a large team but their organisation structure seems a bit loose , such that their teams are not able to react as efficiently as a nucleus team , my original intention was QUANTITY , but now my focus has switched to QUALITY. As long as the people that are working with me are competent , that's all that matters.  I've attached the link for the presentation that helped me on a HRM crash course here

I'll have to interview candidates later in the morning... wish me luck? lol
