Facing A Job Interview? Just Be Yourself, Suggests A Study

A study has found that authenticity is key to securing an employment offer.

 

London: Applying for a new job? Just relax and be yourself during the interview, as a study has found that authenticity is key to securing an employment offer. Researchers, including those from University College London (UCL) in the UK, found that high-quality candidates who strive to present themselves accurately during the interview process significantly increase the likelihood of receiving a job offer.

“People are often encouraged to only present the best aspects of themselves at interview so they appear more attractive to employers, but what we have found is that high-quality candidates – the top 10 per cent – fare much better when they present who they really are,” said SunYoung Lee from UCL School of Management.

“Unfortunately, the same is not true for poorer quality candidates who can actually damage their chances of being offered the job by being more authentic,” said Lee. The research focused on the concept of ‘self-verification’, which refers to individuals’ drive to be known and understood by others according to their firmly held beliefs and feelings about themselves.

To date, self-verifying behaviour was known to positively influence outcomes that unfold over time, such as the process of integration in a new organisation. The research shows, for the first time, that self-verification can have important effects in short-term interpersonal interactions as well, as in the hiring process.

“In a job interview, we often try to present ourselves as perfect. Our study proves this instinct wrong,” said Celia Moore from Bocconi University in Italy. “Interviewers perceive an overly polished self-representation as inauthentic and potentially misrepresentative.

“But ultimately, if you are a high-quality candidate, you can be yourself on the job market. You can be honest and authentic. And if you are, you will be more likely to get a job,” Moore said. The researchers conducted three studies – two field studies looking at the importance of self-verification for groups of professionals applying for different jobs and a third experimental study testing the mechanism behind the effects observed.

In the two field studies, prior to job interviews, candidates reported their self-verification drive, and their
quality was evaluated in face-to-face interviews. The first study investigated a sample of 1,240 teachers from around the globe who applied for placements in the US. The candidates that had been evaluated as high quality had a 51 per cent likelihood of receiving a placement, but this increased to 73 per cent for those who also had a strong drive to self-verify.

The second study replicated this effect in a radically different sample by assessing 333 lawyers applying for positions in a branch of the US military. For this group, high quality candidates increased their chances of receiving a job offer five-fold, from 3 per cent to 17 per cent, if they also had a strong drive to self-verify.

This effect was only seen in high-quality candidates, and for those rated as low-quality, the drive to self-verify weakened their position. The third study was designed to test the mechanism behind this effect. For this, the researchers surveyed 300 people on their self-verification striving and selected those who were extremely high and extremely low in the distribution.

The research was published in the Journal of Applied Psychology.

What does a Computer Programmer do?

A computer programmer, or coder, is someone who writes computer software. The term computer programmer can refer to a specialist in one area of computer programming or to a generalist who writes code for many kinds of software.

One who practices or professes a formal approach to programming may also be known as a programmer analyst. The term programmer can be used to refer to a software developer, software engineer, computer scientist, or software analyst. However, members of these professions typically possess other software engineering skills beyond programming. For this reason, the term programmer is sometimes considered an oversimplification of these other professions.

This has sparked much debate amongst developers, analysts, computer scientists, programmers, and outsiders who continue to be puzzled at the subtle differences in these occupations. Within software engineering, programming (the implementation) is regarded as one phase in a software developmental process.

What does a Computer Programmer do?

As a computer programmer, you may work alone on smaller programming projects or in a team for larger, more complicated computer programs. In many cases, a software engineer gives you the description of how the program is expected to work. Then, you translate the description into a language that computers can process. You’ll use one of several computer programming languages, like Java, Visual Basic, C, or C++.

After the program is written, you’ll run it to make sure it operates correctly. Afterward, you’ll fix any problems that occur with the program through a process known as debugging. You can also be in charge of updating, modifying, or repairing programs that already exist or writing their instruction manuals.

How to become a Computer Programmer

It seems that there are as many roads to becoming a computer programmer as there are actual programmers. Some computer programmers have a bachelor’s degree in computer information or science, mathematics or engineering. A two-year degree or certificate may be adequate for some jobs.

Though there is not one specific credential that all computer programmers must have, it is certain that having some type of formal education will definitely improve your chances of getting employment in the competitive programming world. Having said that, many programmers are self-taught and are very proficient and successful in programming. In the absence of a degree, substantial specialized experience or expertise may be needed.

In addition to educational achievement, employers value relevant programming skills as well as experience. They will be looking for people familiar with fourth and fifth generation languages that involve graphic user interface and systems programming. Because technology changes so often, programmers must constantly update their knowledge and skills by taking courses sponsored by their employer or offered through local colleges and universities.

When hiring computer programmers, employers look for people with the necessary programming skills who can think logically and pay close attention to detail. Programming calls for patience, persistence, and the ability to perform precise analytical work, especially when under pressure.

Creativity, ingenuity, being able to work with abstract concepts and being able to do technical analysis are all important as well. Because programmers are expected to work in teams and interact directly with users, employers want programmers who are able to communicate with non-technical personnel. Business skills are also important for those wanting to advance to managerial positions.

What is the workplace of a Computer Programmer like?

Technological advances allow more work to be done from remote locations, so some computer programmers are able to work from home. Most programmers though, do work in clean, comfortable offices and spend most of their time in front of a computer. They usually work full 40 hour weeks and may be required to work overtime to meet deadlines or fix technical issues.

Computer Programmer Salary

Computer programmer with good knowledge of their respective field can expect a good salary ranging from Rs. 30,000 to Rs. 40,000 per month. With some experience and advanced certifications,  these professionals working in companies such as TCS, Infosys, Wipro can get anything near Rs. 50,000+ as their monthly pay.

A fresher can get employment in such a startup and after acquiring enough experience, knowledge and skills, can get employment in giant companies and climb up the career ladder.

 

Industry Snapshot

Career Insights

 

The two most common entry routes to an HR career are:

– Undergraduate or (in India) an MBA or Masters in HR –> followed by either a functional entry or into an HR specific Leadership Development Program (LDP). You would enter at notch or two below manager level and work your way up.

– Mid-career transition into HR –> in the context of someone’s career development towards senior business roles, or a full transition into HR. Many HR managers / directors would have transition mid-career into HR from other functions in the organization, like finance, operations, or marketing & sales.

Most MNCs will have a healthy mix of the two.

With few exceptions like some company’s Global HR Leadership Development Program (LDP) where one might have an early career international assignment / rotation, most HR careers in MNCs start out local. You would normally have to go through early career rotational positions in administration, employee relations and IT platforms / L&D; with some companies offering business partner assignments at a junior level.

It would take between 5-7 years for you to be considered for mid/senior and potentially international HR roles in any of the above sub-functional areas. In this period, you will have achieved or acquired competence and skills in a combination of the below areas, all underpinned by a solid understanding of your business & industry:

– Professional expertise in at least one area (except administration), with strong knowledge of another; perhaps with some time leading a small group of people. Example – you have specific and applicable experience in the area of mid-senior management recruiting, compensation and retention.

– You are an authority on corporate HR practice, organizational strategy. Example – you are an expert in running corporate / regional LDPs, and could potentially be considered a candidate to run a Global LDP; alternatively – you could be considered for a business partner role in a centralized or center –led global function like Strategic Procurement

– Solid experience in HR led projects or Business initiatives. Example – you have contributed to / led a major HR Information System upgrade for the local subsidiary of the company; or have successfully managed the HR aspects of integration of a major acquisition (including sensitive areas like employee retention or termination when that needs to happen).

Achieving a combination or all of the above is necessary for the visibility required amongst the senior people who evaluate you for global / corporate / partnering roles in HR.

Going further – your career could go one of several ways:

– Senior HR and leadership roles within your companies
– With professional qualifications through your career, into Organizational Consulting
– Executive Recruiting

Options are wide… but like any other career, you’d need to work your way up!

Skills and Talents

 

  • Level of People skills required: High
  • Level of Sales skills required: Low
  • Level of Communication skills required: High
  • Level of Analytical skills required: Medium
  • Level of Ability to synthesize required: Low
  • Level of Creative ability required: Low
  • Level of Initiative required: High
  • Level of Work hours required: 35-55/week

 

 

Jobs in the Human Resources Sector

 

The HR function in a medium to large corporate can be broken down into five major areas:

 

Administration – payroll, facilities, catering, cleaning, offices, real estate, employee ergonomics and aesthetics, employee events, even your receptionist and office assistants are HR staff.

 

An area few seem to care about (until something goes wrong). The tactical and administrative nature of this area makes less relevant to have a specialist HR education or experience at junior to middle levels. However, it’s an area many aspiring HR leaders have to pass through as managers and directors at some point in time, to work on the little big things that keep employees happy, as well as to (occasionally) break a few bloated egos. These people are the unsung heroes of any organization. In a predominantly white-collar office environment, expect them people to have a say in matters related to employee ergonomics and services.

 

Highly tactical and execution driven, but influential in office based white-collar environments

Employee relations – Internal relationships and responsiveness, Industrial and socio-economic relations, particularly in unionized manufacturing heavy industries (automotive, core & heavy engineering etc..).

Where the people are amongst the highest cost elements of a P&L (IT / Consulting / Professional Services) and / or where labor and unions have to be dealt with, this is a super-critical area of HR. So important that it will almost always have a Director or VP level HR person leading it. Expect the Heads / Directors of these areas in companies like Reliance, TCS and the Tata companies, Infosys, L&T etc to be truly senior & competent people with 15-20 years HR experience.

Extremely strategic in people oriented industries (IT / Consulting / professional services)
Extremely strategic in manufacturing / engineering (blue-collar heavy work-force) 

Business Partnering – normally senior HR people attached to a major function, business group or any major initiative that requires a major organizational shift (e.g acquisition, restructuring).

As functions within organizations (like Supply Chain, Finance, R&D etc) become employee oceans of their own, companies have started placing senior HR experts in functions to help business leaders stay connected with the rest of the organization and its strategy.

Typically, a role like this is called a “Business Partner”, is part of the functional head’s leadership team, and is a key voice in all organizational aspects of that function, including strategic competency assessments, recruiting, head count management, organizational strategy and succession planning. An HR Business Partner may not necessarily have people reporting to him/her, but will normally be a Senior Manager or First Level Director in a large organization. He/she will typically report to the functional head, and be a part of that functional head’s leadership team. An R&D and technology driven company like Novartis will almost certainly have a senior HR business partner in the R&D head’s leadership team.

A typical assignment for an HR business partner could be the regional integration of staff & management through a merger.

Highly strategic in a multi-functional corporate (e.g Unilever, GE, J&J, Pfizer, Novartis, Nokia)

Talent & compensation – recruitment, retention, compensation (strategy & delivery); what many normally associate HR with.

The profile of this functional area is highly dependent on the level of competition a company faces to attract, recruit, develop and retain its talent pool. You can reasonably conclude it’s the most stressful, yet prestigious sub-functional areas of HR in attrition heavy companies like Infosys, TCS or Wipro.

This is a typically a large group of people who will focus on both internal and external aspects of HR. While their daily task is around conducting organizational recruiting, talent retention and compensation; these people also execute the people strategies that come out of critical functions in the organization.

One typical role of Manager/Regional / Global HR Manager / Director in this area is running end-2-end a rotation leadership program, including recruiting strategies for freshers, on campus, frontline hiring, junior management hiring / external / open hiring, relationship with schools / institutions / head-hunters (companies like Jobs for Youth would be partnering with the HR Managers on such assignments), program management, associated job rotation, and post-program placement of the recruit into one of the company’s businesses. The person is normally most well-connected to functional HR business partners, and those involved with learning & development.

HR Managers / Directors in the compensation management & strategy space, connected with all other HR and functional leaders – are the keepers of a company’s most sensitive & confidential information, employee salaries, bonuses and benefits. As such, this is a very senior level position within the HR space. Those chosen for this assignment tend to be vetted & trained in the highest standards of confidentiality and compliance.

Extremely strategic in people oriented industries (IT / Consulting / professional services)

IT Platforms, Learning & development (L&D) – processes, systems and delivery tools for employee management, enabling all of the other sub-functional pillars of HR

Enabling & execution driven function, critical in larger companies depending on ERP sub-platforms to manage HR data, information and the company’s learning & development requirements.

 

 

Some leading players:

HR firms have become a need for every individual as well as companies. Since theses organization have a wider network to find right job and right compensation for each candidate sourced, even the corporate leaders contacts them for recruiting candidates.

 

Top HR Companies in India are as follows:

 

  • ABC Consultants
  • Accord India
  • Egon Zehnder
  • Executive Access
  • Heidrick & Struggles
  • IKYA Group
  • Korn Ferry
  • Michael Page
  • RGF Executive Search
  • Russell Reynolds Associates
  • Spencer Stuart
