You are in the recruitment process for a job as an e-commerce manager at a medium-sized company. You have ten years’ experience in e-commerce, and you can work operationally as well as strategically, which is quite a rare combination on the market.
Your potential employer is a small company that is about to change its e-commerce platform, and they are looking for someone who can manage this process, including making a good choice of platform. They are also planning to launch sites in other countries, and they are in particular focusing on Spain and South America, as their products seem to be very popular with this target group.
- You happen to be a native Spanish speaker, and although this is not a requirement for the position, this will be of huge help when launching in this market.
- Your background in economics and marketing combined with your technical experience makes you a strong candidate given that most of your competitors are likely to be specialized in only one of these fields.
- Your third argument should be about the new platform. Share your vision here, make your hiring manager dream of the new platform. Provide them with a rough forecast of how the turnover they can expect with the solution you have in mind.
You have applied for a part-time job as a waiter, to combine with your studies. Although the restaurant is situated in a tourist district, it is rather well-known for high-quality food. Although they have focused on the lunch menu, they have recently decided to make the business grow by developing a new dinner menu and broaden their wine selection to include more expensive bottles.
- You have a great interest in wine and have done some sommelier training. You explain that your expertise in wine will help the guests to choose wine, an added benefit both to the customers and the organisation, that will make more sales.
- Given that your studies timetable is quite flexible, you can work when there’s a need, and especially during weekends and holidays, when they enjoy more business.
- Your language skills in French and Chinese will make the restaurant a good choice for tourists, as you can help translating menues and talking to international guests.
