Continuous Improvement Manager

SUPPLY CHAIN JOBS IN PROFILE

From the perspective of a candidate, what can a job description really convey? You click through to a job that looks interesting. You get a paragraph of boilerplate about the company. You get an exhaustive, covering-all-the-bases list of responsibilities. You get educational requirements. Been there, done that.

The humble job description is as old as the hills. It seems like it will be always part of the hiring process. If you asked the hiring manager the most important thing she/he is looking for is Fit.

Fit.  Meshing with a company’s “Corporate Culture.” Shared philosophy and work habits. It’s the most important aspect of the hiring process, but it’s also the most nebulous and difficult to pin down. It’s the aspect that can’t be systematized. It can only be understood in practice. It’s only after a job interview that you can be reasonably sure that you’re a good fit for a company, and that they’re a good fit for you.

This week we’re profiling a great, Greenfield senior managerial opportunity that we have been engaged for. For this client fit is EVERYTHING. And if this type of culture – where you will be really appreciated for your ideas and passion this could be an opportunity that will define your career.
