“With the prospect of a vacancy, a Human Resource manager must analyze the responsibilities associated with the position. You should review the duties and responsibilities of a position each time the position becomes available” (Wheeler, Johnson, & Manion, 2008). Having analyzed the duties associated with the sales manager position, I consider Jyoti, who is a manager of wireless retail store, to be the perfect candidate for this position for several reasons.
In the first place, his previous experience includes working for a wireless phone company. The main responsibility for this position is selling fiber optics to leading wireless manufacturers. Therefore, Jyoti is familiar with this kind of business and the company would not have to spend additional time and resources in order to acquaint the sales manager with an affair.
While considering reasons for not selecting a candidate for this position, I considered both “specific and job-related” factors (“A Quick Guide to Reasons for Not Selecting Candidates”, 2012). The most common job-related reason for not selecting a particular candidate is her/his unavailability to travel or work long hours due to the family circumstances. This position provides for working over extended working schedule and spending leisure time after 5:00 P.M. with prospective clients. Speaking from this perspective, Jyoti is a perfect candidate for the position as he is single and he also indicated that he is available to travel and work unsociable hours.
What is more, in his resume, Jyoti has indicated that due to his training of salespeople and due to his expertise in sales, the revenues of the company he worked for rose 60% last year, which is quite a significant increase. I believe that this factor makes him a perfect candidate for the sales manager position.
