Last year, I met an HR candidate at our offices. She told me that her company was moving the HR department to Singapore, she loved the company and the culture that she had been a part of for the last 4 and a half years but was distraught about this move.
Moving wasn’t an option for her, she had house and family (2 kids) in Tokyo. She had 3 months to find a job.
First, I listened.
She spoke about the type of role that she wanted, the type of people she wanted to work with and the things she wanted to achieve in the organization.
