Today we are an HR tech company as I say to you, but our main strategy looking, to the building is strong and to enable the company in the next five years is building a, a platform able to evaluate the tech and digital professionals draw good access assessments good mentor building a strong community around the world where the in candidates can be able to exchange knowledge, exchange recommendations, regarding new technologies and learning with each other draw these platforms.

We are building a great platform able to evaluate hiding and also prepare this in terms of development skews in, in Harding, soft skews too. We are looking to exchange our company from HR consultant to an HR tech company that uses may or platform or own platform, I mean, to make money, make business, and also think about the sustainability of the company that we have.

Overall our vision is to build a platform to provide these fast experiences for our can evaluation to job, offer the steps and also be competitive and capable of offering personalized and humor experience to the users too. So, wow. That's, that's great. I guess it is also providing the candidates, this many things in past experiences, as well as providing many products in it.

Allin1hub: That's great! I guess the execution and plan were very much planned. I believe that you are going to be a key part in helping bridge social, get to that part. And let's dive into this podcast now. So what are the qualities that you look for in a candidate when selecting the profile?

Henrique Santos: We have a few steps in the recruitment process. The first is to evaluate the candidates draw the screening part where the recruiter looking for agreed profiles draw link gene and among your other channels for recruiting candidates. And a great PIO means having a shape of profile on the linking where these can date put all the information that they have in terms of knowledge master degree certifications job descriptions.

And also they highlight that they have been contributing to the company that they have been working for. If I have two patterns in terms of profiles, the first one is when the candidate put all the information about the year day to day routine and out, they highlight, put the quantitative parts of the day, year jobs in terms of results that they've achieved.

And the second they can date doesn't put anything about the year previous background experience that they've worked at. Probably I will choose the first one because they are, have more details. And also I guess these first and dates care about the details too. I think it's the first.

The first step, the second step is when about interview what you usually will are looking for in an interview is understand about how they can date communicate their year contributions for business growth draw he the year own activities and responsibilities. I think the most important thing in attending data regardless, they feel that they work for is understanding if they also knew about the business, how can they connect his the year activities?

With the business strategy in terms of OTRs and how can, they can contribute positively to the business growth and the business can reach it. So I think it's it, they, they both points in terms of screening interview that that's, it, you know, in terms of is screening part, they can, they need to have a great profile with all the information that they've been working for.

And the interview part, usually I will be looking for candidates able to express its draw the, your communication.

Allin1hub: What it means is that the candidate should fill every detail and should be able to communicate well, his profiling as, as resume made as well as should have the skills that are required for that particular job, apart from that.

What else, what else did you say? I couldn't catch you on that. Just repeat back for our audience. Yes. Step two, the step two, step two. Can you just repeat back that step? Because I believe that it has more, more potential into it, but can you just explain that step two once again?

Henrique Santos: Yeah. Yes. So this part is very important. The candidate brings it to us. Great examples regard the, your background experience in terms of results that they achieve. And also. Then, the point they highlight is what they've been doing in terms of contribution. I mean usually, we are looking for a single professional in their market label, and when you.

When you put them in an interview moment, they, they not able to express to, to us the results of the job. They just, talk to us about the year daily to the daily routine in terms of deliverables. Yes. I am responsible for evaluating the project management steps, but this is not, not it exactly what we are looking for in terms of the interview part.

We need to understand, that you have a responsibility, you have a context and you have goals to achieve your daily to day routine. What do you do to achieve it? And when you do it what is the result that you can achieve? And if you don't achieve these results, what do you do to overcome the troubles?

So we need to understand more about the soft skills that they can be able to do in their daily routine. Because today we are leaving. The complex environment in terms of business growth in the technology area.

So the candidates need to have a lot of soft skills in terms of negotiation, flexibility, and great communication, these skills to build great results in terms of relationships with the stakeholder, with the team and also influence the team to, achieve the great results. So overall in the interview part to we, we like to understand the self-awareness that they can have, your ability in terms of hard and soft skills and the, how can they contribute positively to the business growth.

Allin1hub: The candidate should have everything from soft skills, negotiation, technical skills, as well as many other skills apart from handling the stakeholders because everyone is going. And talking to the stakeholders as well. So the candidate should be able to do this. And the major part, as you said, is that the candidate should be able to achieve the results if the candidate is not able to achieve the results, the candidate is not fit for the job. Is that right? Exactly. Did I get it right?
