University graduates seeking employment: the four “psychological effects” can not be ignored

They are all college graduates who apply to the job market. Why do some people succeed, but others fail?
Here’s the “first impression” question.
  According to psychologists, the primary cause effect, proximate effect, catfish effect, halo effect, etc., are the laws of psychological phenomena. Only the staff are required to make good use of it, and they will surely shine in the first time.Those who stand out have the opportunity to gain employment.
Job seekers may wish to give it a try.
  First cause effect: Dressing up in a frightful dress Case: Xiao Yang is a graduate of a prestigious engineering school with excellent professionalism and excellent grades. He stands out among the thick application materials and is included in the pre-selection list.
But when she was interviewing, she was too trendy: bright short tops, worn low-rise pants, and exaggeratedly wearing large tropical earrings. As soon as she entered the door, the examiners composed of senior engineers were stunned.This question ended the interview, and of course she was eliminated.
  Comment: The “primary effect” is also called the “first impression” effect.
Psychological research has found that a first meeting with a person produces a first impression within 45 seconds.
First impressions can form and dominate in the other person’s mind.
The role of the causal effect in an interview cannot be underestimated.
Although the examiner’s “impression” criteria are different, in general, some criteria are consistent. This is: a solid, cheerful, full-spirited, confident, honest, alert and capable person will leave a good first.impression.
The science and engineering majors required “stableness and resistance to loneliness”, but Xiao Yang’s dress left a first impression of “flashy and likable” for the recruiting examiner. It was natural for her to get out.
  近因效应:相貌平平却自信  案例:毕业生小林是个相貌平平的小男孩,到一个单位参加面试,进考场后,考官只轻描淡写地问了他是哪个学校毕业的,是哪个地方的人等几After a question, the interview was over.
When he was about to leave the examination room, the examiner called him again and said, “You have answered the questions we asked, and the judges don’t think it is good. What do you think about this?
Kobayashi replied immediately: “You didn’t ask questions that reflected my level, so you didn’t really understand me!
The examiner nodded and said, “Okay, the interview is over. You can go out and wait for the notice.”
“As a result, the offer letter arrived on schedule.
  Comments: The most recent and final impression is often the strongest, and it can dilute the various factors that have occurred before this time. This is the “proximate effect”.
In fact, the examiner said for the first time that the interview was over, it was just a setting, and it was the final test for the graduates. He wanted to use this to check the psychological quality and on-the-spot ability of the candidates.
If this question is answered very well, it can make up for the “prime effect” deficiency; if it is not answered well, the candidate may fail due to this final critical test question.
  鲇鱼效应:组织应聘显活力  案例:小陈是班长,他希望班上同学都能尽快地有个好工作,所以每次参加应聘活动,他都会成为热情的组织者,在应聘场上,帮助The classmates gave suggestions, and let the male students open the way for the female students in front of the crowded recruitment desk of the popular unit, and submit their resumes together.
Before his resume was submitted, several units took the initiative to ask him about his situation. One unit found that he matched the needs of his own unit and immediately asked him if he had any intention to apply to their unit.
  Comment: Xiao Chen accidentally showed the “catfish effect”.
The catfish effect stems from an allusion.
Norwegians love to eat sardines, but only the fish caught by an old fisherman is alive.
The secret is that he added a small amount of catfish to the sardines that he caught, so that the sardines that he caught were always excited and lively, so he could sell for a high price.
The “catfish effect” in talent science refers to people who are different and who can bring vitality to groups and enterprises.
Such people are the most popular.
When recruiting, especially when there are many graduates in the talent market, recruiters will pay great attention to observe the performance of each person. Among the candidates, who is most energetic, who is most creative, and who is most favored.
In group interviews, we must also pay attention to the “catfish effect”.
If it is your turn to express your opinion, you should strive to be clear, clear, and have strong arguments to stand out.
  The halo effect: “Puzzle in class” reading a pictorial case: Xiao Liu is a junior college student and applied to a foreign trade unit with a group of undergraduates and graduate students. He knows that if he simply submits a resume like that, there is definitely no hope.
He thought about it. When the recruiter had lunch, he took a pictorial in English and read it in front of the recruitment desk.
When the recruiter was attracted by the color pictorial, he told them interesting stories in pictorial in fluent English. Of course, the end result was that the recruiter accepted his resume with only a “specialty” degree, and he succeededWas recruited into this unit.
  Comment: The halo was originally a hazy phenomenon when the moon was shrouded in halo.
The “halo effect” is a universal psychological phenomenon, that is, when evaluating a person, he often hides other qualities, even weaknesses, because of his strong and clear perception of one of his qualities.
If graduates can skillfully use this halo effect to fully display their advantages in job application, they will definitely leave a deep impression on the recruiting examiner, win the appreciation of the other party, and succeed in the application, just likeXiao Liu, a college student.
Of course, when using this effect, we must pay attention that we cannot deliberately create a “halo” effect, that kind of false behavior can only have the opposite effect.
