What Employers Can Think When Employing You!

I was once told by someone who managed a business his own perception of what employers look for. He told me a few things which I will explain later in this article which I believe is a great way of thinking and remembering this when in an interview, before an interview and could do you some good.


He told me that when the employer looks at you and your history and experience etc he will think is this person worth £1000000 of our companies money? Is his/her qualifications and skills worth this amount.


You may be wondering why an employer would think like that but there are very good reasons.
Firstly, the employer realises that say if you are 16 years old and will retire at 60 years old and are getting paid at a rate of £7.00 an hour, 40 hours per week which is £280 per week, £1120 per month, £13440 per year, £591360 in total employing costs from the age of 16 to 60, paid leave costs, your pension costs plus any other additional work costs it really does stack up and he will wonder if you are worth paying all that money to.


Imagine the amounts his company will be dishing out to you if you worked over time? Imagine the amounts payed out if you got wage rises or even a promotion? It is big money!


They want someone good for their business who will make their money spent in wages worth it so they wont employ just anyone. When in an interview you should make sure your sell yourself as much as you possibly can to the employer. They want to know your skills, abilities and experience so that they can work out if you are good enough for the position and the wages.


There will be more interview help articles coming soon…

When are there going to be more interview help articles?
This was good, I'm sure I'll keep this in mind in the future. Somehow I doubt if I go apply at McDonalds, they won't be thinking this unless they believe I'm going to spend 44 years working there

Lol I am not sure when but I will make sure I get some written and posted soon. I think almost all employers will think that to themselves in an interview even McDonalds might because you may even get promoted and stay there etc
