Frequently asked questions to Marcus Christopher Schulz

How do you ensure that the company and the candidate are a good match in terms of value understanding and company cultural aspects?

Successful long-term staffing of challenging specialist and management positions requires more than simply ticking off technical requirements. If neither the chemistry nor the values are right, even the most qualified manager in the most exciting field of activity will be neither happy nor effective. The desire for a working environment that corresponds to personal values is also growing noticeably among younger generations. Finding the common denominator here is a decisive factor in view of the prevailing shortage of skilled workers, especially in segments that are challenging to fill. DELTACON therefore relies on a balanced combination of proven tools and gut feeling in executive search in order to find the perfect match even between the lines.

Companies have different strategic goals. How do you know that the expectations of the applicants are also in line with the company's goals?

At the beginning of a successful recruiting process, both sides need to reflect precisely on the goals they want to achieve. Both companies and candidates should be as clear as possible about their own wishes and expectations and communicate these openly. Does the company want to grow, open up new markets, expand its product portfolio? At what point in his career does a candidate stand, where would he like to develop, what is the reason for the professional reorientation? Knowing all these factors is crucial for the goal-oriented, efficient filling of challenging positions. For a long-term cooperation, DELTACON therefore designs a briefing in close cooperation with the client, which contains both professional and personal criteria of the position as well as of the suitable candidate. The relationship of trust between DELTACON, client and candidate ensures transparent communication to ensure that both sides are looking in the same direction.
