Please tell a memorable positive story with a candidate.
M: I had to hire a candidate from the Philippines, and we went together through a lot of obstacles concerning her origin and citizenship. We had numerous phone calls and filled a lot of documentation, but at the end we successfully hired and employed her. She was very thankful, and I was really pleased that we managed to get together through the process.
E: I cannot come up with just one story. Every time I succeed to hire a candidate it’s a very special moment for me, especially when the person comes and thanks me in person, it’s such a great feeling.
