Staff given job search tips
Monday 26 May 2008
Thomson Reuters staff have been sent guides on how to apply for internal jobs, UK Press Gazette magazine reported.
Journalists at Thomson Financial Newswires were advised to read two documents on the company’s intranet this month, it said. One was titled Thomson Reuters Introduction to Interviewing, the other Filling Roles: Competency Based Interviewing Guide.
“According to a well-placed source within the company, human resources staff have been holding workshops on tackling interviews for the new company,” Press Gazette said.
Reuters interviews take place in several stages, often before a panel of four or five senior management staff.
“The competence guide advises interviewees to expect tough questions such as: “Give an example of a time when you had to strive hard and make personal sacrifices to achieve an aim which was important to you/the business.” ■
