Introduction and Table of Content
“The secret of getting ahead is getting started”

Undoubtedly, recruitment is one of the most important activities carried out in each Local Committee every year. From the strategic point of view the quality of this process determines whole coming year as it is the people recruited who will drive the majority of LC’s results through their every day work. Running a high quality and objective recruitment process is a challenge, especially in an organization run entirely by students who are not professionals at this matter and in most cases – they do it for the first time in their lives. What made us work on this Toolkit was an idea that it is possible to organize a high quality and professional recruitment in every Local Committee. And we hope that you will make the greatest proof of that after your reading. Good luck! Grzegorz Kowalski National Induction Coordinator 2006/2007 AIESEC in Poland

Competency Based Recruitment

What is Competency Based Recruitment? Why are we running it?

To understand the idea of competency based recruitment fully, it is better to start with description of the contrary (let’s call it “classic”) and unfortunately still very popular recruitment process. By classic recruitment process we mean a time when the candidate was called in to talk with the boss who rarely had any opinion about the exact profile of a person seek and did not know what special features the candidate should have. The outcome of such selection process was usually the choice of a candidate who “the boss liked the most”, who “knew what is going on!” or “had the right predispositions”. Those criteria were more less as clear as the boss’ opinion about the person needed and the review was run in an unstructured way. Fortunately, more and more organizations start the recruitment process with defining the exact criteria the candidate must fulfill. The main rule always was and will be the same: “know who you are looking for!” As without it the recruitment is reduced to “we will see”. Defining the criteria is the most important thing in the recruitment process. Competencies Knowledge and attributes which help an individual increase performance and learning.

Competency based recruitment fulfills this condition greatly as it is about defining the desired attributes of a candidate, describing them in a measurable framework and building proper recruitment process that will allow for checking the candidate. If the recruitment is based on competencies, it is easier to define the strengths and weaknesses of the student and thus – use this information as an indicator for the assessor and as feedback for the candidate. There are many more advantages of such recruitment: it is easier for us to assess the student and his/her predispositions more precisely it assures greater alignment between knowledge, skills, interests, needs of the candidate and AIESEC it prevents the assessor from hasty opinions and misjudgements of the student and assessment based on features that are irrelevant to the process competencies can be the base for many assessment tools as application, review board, group exercise… it makes it easier to identify the attributes of the candidate and suit what we can offer with his/her further development The competencies placed in AIESEC Competency Model are the reflection of people we want to have in our organization – agents of change. The four change agents characteristics have been described as a set of sixteen competencies that can be developed on four different levels – personal, interpersonal, team, organization. Each of those competencies can be developed at every level in our learning environment by AIESEC Experience. Basing the recruitment on our Competency Model means defining which of those sixteen competencies should be seen as requirement for our members from the very beginning as they will be a strong base for their further development as well as the development of all the other competencies that are not checked during recruitment. Those required competencies on a certain level determine the profile of a person we want to recruit – our Core Profile.

That is achieved in two main aspects: there are more competencies checked in the personalities of 4-5 year students. what we are able to demand from polish students and be aiming high at the same time. The required level of the competencies in the Core Profile is a kind of compromise between the polish student realities (what we can expect from our applicants) and staying high in our expectations (the will to have high potential people – Culture of Excellence). the desired levels of the competencies measured are set relatively higher. are to represent the Core Profile of new member that will be desired in AIESEC Poland.impact .4545 AIESEC Poland new member Core Profile What kind of people do we want to recruit? How do we express the profile of our people needed? The desired profile of new members is based completely on Global Competency Model. In other words.learning . the competencies that should be developed to a certain level before coming to AIESEC.diversity . Their AIESEC experience will be at least a year or two shorter than the AIESEC experience of students who come to AIESEC while beginning studying. The competencies that are not included in the Core Profile are the ones that are not necessary from the very beginning of AIESEC engagement as they can be developed completely from the lowest level during AIESEC experience.quality . The older students will not have so much time for their development – the chance of developing their competencies to maximum level is much lower than the younger members’. together with their levels.leadership . as well as exact description of it – the competencies we want to check and their desired level. The need of having more criteria for older students comes from the fact that older students will not have so much time for AIESEC experience as younger students. That is why we should pay a bit more attention to 4-5 year students while assessing them. The logic behind the Core Profile is as follows: The competencies chosen are the ones that should be perceived as minimum set of competencies existing in our members. In this part of the document you will find information about the assumptions of our Core Profile. Those competencies selected. The competencies that will be measured in candidates differ depending on whether the candidate is from 1-3 year of studies or 4-5 year. Several competencies have been selected out of the set of sixteen included in GCM and exact levels of them have been established as required from the new members. . These are the competencies that people should have from the very beginning of working in our organization.

The selection tools: application group exercise review board Selection tools short description: As the scope of competencies to measure is quite wide. It is connected with being able to be matched within 2 year time.learning .diversity . During that time team working skills and some competencies from GCM are measured.quality . as their contact info. Apart from that. Here we measure the competencies that can be checked most effectively during individual discussion with the candidate. The application Group exercise is a time when groups of 6 candidates work together for round 30 minutes on 1-3 small tasks/problems/cases given. To boost the quality of this stage. language knowledge. interests or motivation to join AIESEC. The division was done in such a way that the easiest to check competencies are measured at the stage of application.leadership . . they need to be divided effectively between those selection tools. mostly those that can be observed in relations with other people and that involve creative problem solving. The candidates fulfilling the predefined criteria in a decent way are invited to the two last stages of selection. working experience.impact . external partners are involved in it.4545 How we measure the competencies What selection tools do we use? Which tools measure which competencies? As AIESEC Poland we have decided on using three main selection tools which will allow every Local Committee to check levels of the competencies effectively and choose top talent new members. Review Board is the last selection tool. we get to know basic personal information about the student. the hardest ones during review board and those that are easily observed while working in a team or while problem solving – during group exercise. On this stage some GCM based competencies are measured. is a tool obligatory to fill in by every candidate. The 3-5 year students are asked to answer several more questions concerning some more competencies and their personality profile.

which competency is the particular question devoted to. reactions in a specific past situation. what is the desired level of this competency (taking into account the candidate’s year of studies). characteristics of 1-3 and 4-5 year students. the desired aspect of the behaviour that the answer should include in order for us to be sure about the level existence .impact . That is why the questions must not concern assumptive situations as no one knows for sure how they would behave in a real situation.quality .diversity . cause only experienced situations show how a person behaves in given circumstances. each information received should be based on the past performance of the candidate. There are two important things that the person assessing the applications must keep in mind: firstly.leadership . According to the rules about how to run a competency based recruitment. the application aims at assessing different number of competencies. Application Competencies measured Integrity Self awareness Accountability Adaptability Results Orientation Motivation Alignment English Self Confidence Developing Others students 1-3 year 4-5 year X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X How the application works The application is constructed in such a way that each question is based on one competency measured – each question aims at assessing whether the candidate has a certain competency on the level desired or not.4545 How to use the selection tools – Application How is the application build? How to use it effectively? How to assess competency based questions? As mentioned before.learning . The summary of this division is depicted below. All the competency assessing questions ask the candidates to describe their behaviour. what is the definition of this competency is (GCM definition) secondly.

learning . Not only does it make the information more reliable but it also gives us the base for some further questions concerning the competencies during the review board. The effectiveness of this process depends on many factors. understandable and precise the answer contains most of the indicators of particular competency level B: the proof of having the desired level of competency is sufficient the answer indicates the possible existence of the competency level but it is not very clear and requires more questions during review board the answer contains some of the indicators of the competency level C: the proof is unsatisfactory or there is no proof at all the answer is inadequate to the question the answer contains (almost) no indicators of the competency level defined . such as the project of application.diversity . The way the application is assessed is comparing the answers with desired behavioral indicators (the level of a competency).4545 How to assess the applications Contrary to what many people believe. the way of assessing it or just our consequence and determination. screening (process of reducing the number of applications) requires specific knowledge and detailed preparation. A suggested way of assessing is assigning “grades” to every competency based question: A: the proof of having mentioned level of competency is very clear the answer is clear. The preparation of the assessor is particularly important as.impact . especially in competency based applications. there is always the risk of building your opinion on general impressions about the candidate and not on the information you received from the application form.quality . The characteristic feature of competency based application is that it requires from the candidates to present proofs of having the competencies needed in an indirect way.leadership .

learning . and what we can conclude is that he/she resigned from one commitment in order to fulfill another one towards another person. If it is 1-3 year student. Competency Measured Integrity Description of the Competency Demonstrating a sense of responsibility and commitment Level of the Competency required 1-3 year students 4-5 year students I honor commitments and promises. But depending on which year of studies the candidate is. there is no exact answer to our question. w której podjąłeś/aś się jednocześnie kilku zobowiązań wobec różnych osób. Jak sobie z tym poradziłeś/aś? /Describe a situation when you took up some responsibilities towards different persons at the same time. .quality . I treat others fairly and with honest and maintain necessary confidentiality Supposing the candidate is 2 year student. more focus should be put on the fact whether he/she behaved fairly in relations with people and was honest while fulfilling the responsibilities. the answer is given in a concise. In this case the definition indicates that we are assessing responsibility and commitment presented by the candidate. we pay attention whether the person honored the commitment taken and tried to fulfill the responsibilities.impact . we are assessing different aspects of integrity.leadership .4545 The suggested rules that screening should stick to in such assessing: A person who does not have any “C” grade should be invited for the group exercise and review board A person who has at least 2 “C” grades (3 “C” grades for 4-5 year students) is not invited for the further selection stages A person who has 1 “C” grade (2 “C” grades for 4-5 year students) can be invited for further process – depends on how many people are already invited Example of usage of this tool Question 4 Opisz sytuację.diversity . Such candidate deserves “C” in our scale. If the student is older. Another case – the applicant is 4 year student and the answer given is very long. How did you deal with it?/ This question concerns Integrity In the process of going through the application the assessor checks whether the answer given complies with the desired level of this competency. straight to the point way and there is no doubt that this person honors every commitment taken and gives priority to doing everything necessary to fulfill them. Such candidate gets grade “A” in this question and the assessor moves on.

What did you do?/ With Question 14 starts the part of the application that is filled in only by older students. Question 1 [Motivation Alignment] Why have you decided to engage into AIESEC. Jak sobie z tym poradziłeś/aś? /Describe a situation when you took up some responsibilities towards different persons at the same time. What have you learnt from it? . How did you do that?

What role did you play in this process?/ Question 8 [Results Orientation] Opisz sytuację. w której nie byłeś/aś zadowolony z wyników swojej pracy. Jakimi wartościami.diversity .

what they would like to achieve through it. The language skills are checked in details when a particular person decides to go for internship during their AIESEC involvement. Many of AIESEC simplest activities as matching. their personal plans for future and the work they would like to do in AIESEC. The decision is made mainly basing on the GCM but there are two things that should be remembered: English is a language that is often used on daily basis in AIESEC. all the extra questions (q. whether he/she might be interested in some issue we have project on or maybe suits more to a non-issue related project. The English knowledge (in case of every student) can be also assessed further during review board by asking some question in English. There should be some minimum level of English knowledge established but it does not have to be really demanding. it is necessary to communicate in this language almost everyday – with interns. The motivation alignment will be assessed further during review board stage. . That is why the minimum level of English in terms of older students should be seen as “good”. using communities require usage of English. A person who has never had contact with it would be unable to benefit fully from what AIESEC offers. 19). Question 18 and 19 (filled in by 3-5 year students) are focusing on the fact that the older students will be able to go for exchange relatively sooner than the others and it is necessary to measure their flexibility in terms of countries (q. with LCs abroad. which helps us to get more insight into their language abilities. Which aspects drove the students to do this and what possibilities he/she sees in the engagement. etc.impact .leadership . the questions 14 and 15 aim at assessing the profile of the person in terms of being able to match for an internship. Being sure that the person has right expectations towards organization is a very important matter. Language assessment at the application stage As far as the language is concerned. This one allow us to assess which languages a person feels good at. 2) concerning foreign languages knowledge. still there are several years to spend on learning the language… Older students willing to join the organization should already present decent knowledge of English. In case of need. These questions are not GCM based but they are useful in terms of getting to know closer candidates expectations and thus – in terms of allocation. In the application there is one question (q. the information obtained in this part can be then deepened during review board.4545 Question 1 focuses on the motivation of the person.learning . This information can be evaluated and used eg. The reason for this is the fact that they will be able to go for the internship sooner than the younger members and they do not have so much time to master their English. That is why our members need to know at least basis of this language. Non-competency based questions Questions 9-13 focus on the interests of a person. 18) and job description (q.quality . it is not treated as a main criterion for accepting a person or not. That is why they should not be treated as indicators saying whether the student is suitable for our organization (they are not selection criterion!) but they should be treated as source of information where this student can be allocated. As far as the older students are concerned. 14 – 19) are asked in English. in the process of projects planning for the next term. A person who is still learning English and is not fluent in it yet can develop the language while working in AIESEC. Similarly. Even if a person comes to AIESEC with poor English and plans to go for an internship some time. This set of questions can be also used by the Committee to check what topics the students find interesting and in which fields they would like to develop. It gives us information why the person decided to come to our organization. It is a very basic information but on the other hand sufficient to state if the person has never learned English. It can be also perceived as a way of personal development.diversity .

4545 To sum up. Those who have passed the “competency assessment” are also assessed in terms of their language knowledge and working experience.quality . working experience) – he/she is invited for group exercise and review board. Those with one “C” can go but it is up to your decision – depending on how many people have been accepted already. If a person doesn’t – the situation looks different depending on whether he/she is from 4 or 5 year of studies: 4 year students are invited further but it is important to spend some time during review board on talking with him/her about the situation. the process of screening the applications is a bit different for 1-3 year students and 4-5 year ones. 5 year students are not invited to further parts of recruitment as they would not be able to benefit from AIESEC Experience fully . Those who do not have any “C” grades from competency based questions go for next stages of the recruitment. If a person presents high level in both of these fields (language.leadership . First and most important level are the competencies – the process looks similarly but students are not let further from 3 “C’s”.impact . that if he/she plans to benefit from the exchange part of AIESEC Experience – he/she must use the time spent in AIESEC wisely to gain some more language abilities/working experience. The 1-3 year students are assessed only on the basis of the competencies required. Those who have at least 2 “C’s” do not go.diversity . The 4-5 year students are assessed on two levels.learning .

quality . After application some candidates are rejected. while they are directly presented by the students in real situation.impact . A group of round six students is let into a room and asked to solve together a particular problem.4545 How to use the selection tools – Group Exercise How is this recruitment tool built? How to use it effectively? How to assess at this recruitment stage? The Group Exercise is the second recruitment stage. depending on the number of applications submitted and the capacity of the Committee to run two last recruitment stages (time.leadership . . The main difference between this recruitment tool and the other two is that here we are not assessing the candidates’ competencies basing on their past behaviours described. place…) People who have been assessed positively after application are invited for last two stages. There are three such competencies/skills included in our Core Profile: Group Exercise Competencies measured Effective Communication Innovation and Creativity Team Work students 1-3 year 4-5 year X X X X X X How the Group Exercise works The Group Exercise is based on case solving by a team of candidates. people needed. real interactions with other.learning . skills that are most effectively checked while observing a person working in a team or solving a problem. The Group Exercise stage aims at assessing those competencies. We are assessing the competencies “in action”.diversity . There is no big interaction between the candidates and assessors. The interaction is most intense between the candidates and the assessor plays a role of a quiet observer.

encourage them to introduce and describe how the exercise will look like. My point of view. the assessors welcome the candidates.I Initiate continuous improvements to enhance processes or products.I investigate to better understand a situation or determine communication needs. I adapt quickly to change.impact . I come up with creative solutions and help others in their work. the number of assessor should be established according to the number of people assessed. the assessors focus on the people assigned to them and what they look for are the behaviours that can be interpreted from the point of view of any competency: communication. Effective Communication Clearly conveying and receiving messages to meet the needs of all Innovation and Creativity Taking risks. I develop new approaches .I develop new approaches and solutions to problems and anticipate change and suggest implementation strategies I see how each part of the team determines our succes and can use this knowledge to boost our effectiveness. innovation and creativity. I adapt communication for the audience . During the whole process there should be no interaction with the assessors. The ideal situation is that there are three assessors and the division of responsibilities is clearly defined – each assessor takes care of two students.4545 The assessor’s role In order for the process to be effective. I share my opinions very often. I'm open for propositions and share my Ability to work with others in order opinions.I Communicate in a way that is accurate.diversity . the students should work on their own and behave naturally.

What we measure here The table below presents the competencies measured together with their definitions and the aspects of behaviour that should be looked for in younger and older candidates.learning . I enhance processes or products . I use different ways of conveying a message to add clarity and meaning to communications and adapt the style of presentation and media used to best meet these needs.

He asked each member to give three new ideas for the solution” The point is to put down all the behaviours. At this point all the information that were put down are assessed and a short discussion should be run over each candidate to make sure that each assessor agrees with what the notes indicate.diversity . things said by the candidates that are relevant in terms of our competencies. The descriptions of the levels in previous point should help the assessor to focus on the proper aspects of behaviour. “He is leading in introducing an innovative solution”. but the simple facts that were directly noticed or heard: “He proposed to stop the discussion because the solution was not satisfactory. The rule here is that – if a person’s behaviour complied with most of our indicators from the previous point we are justified to claim that the candidate fulfills the competency. Having that kind of structured questionnaire can contribute greatly to the effectiveness of the assessment. eg. .leadership . any general judgements.4545 How to assess at this stage The aim of the group exercise is to notice as many behaviours saying something about candidate’s communication. It is suggested that each assessor has their own assessment questionnaire where they can put down the observations about their two candidates.learning .impact . team work. The important thing here is that you should not write any interpretation of what the person did.quality . After the exercise the assessors devote ten more minutes for deciding whether each of the candidates fulfilled the desired level of the competency or not. innovation and creativity as possible.

Similarly to the application stage. You can not be sure in such a situation about how the student fits into AIESEC.diversity .4545 How to use the selection tools – Review Board How to run the review bard? How to prepare for it? How it should be structured? How to assess at this stage? The review board stage aims at assessing the following sets of competencies: Review Board Competencies measured Respect Empathy Accountability Results orientation Motivation Alignment English Social Inclusiveness Stakeholder Focus students 1-3 year 4-5 year X X X X X X X X X X X X X X Review Board is the last part of the selection process.leadership . This way is regarded as the most reliable and the most effective in assessing candidates’ predispositions.learning . so that you know what you are going to ask each person in advance and do not come up with random questions during the discussion with candidate. It is just a matter of luck. It is important that the review board is a structured process and some time is spent on preparation for it. we are justified to assume that the best way of checking whether a student possesses a competency or not is checking if they presented it in their past behaviour. The effectiveness of an unstructured review board can be compared to the effectiveness of tossing a coin – as you are going to build your opinion completely on the personal impression your candidates creates. This is the time of the recruitment that requires really detailed and professional preparation as you are going to spend only round 20 minutes with every candidate. It is also the time to measure some competencies that haven’t been checked yet. . which is not a long time and has to be used very effectively.quality . The characteristic aspect of competency based review board is that it is past performance oriented. There are two goals that it is to fulfill: It is the time when you have to get rid of your doubts concerning the competencies of the candidate that were already measured (during application and group exercise) – some extra questions can be asked to assure you about the competency existence. not on their competencies.impact .

The important thing here is that in perfect situation one of the assessors is some external partner. the number of people assessing should come as a compromise between effectiveness of review board and comfort of a person interviewed. The higher number of people assessing. It is suggested that there are two. It is essential that the person know how competency based interview should be run. Having an external partner engaged into selection process brings us benefits in many fields: The objectiveness of the process is much higher There is an external point of view of a more experienced person As students we do not have any experience in running recruitment process Students perceive the selection as a professional.leadership . The partner should know the development path we are delivering to young people and that thanks to it we are able to develop characteristics of change agent within the students.4545 Below you can find information regarding: Number of assessors Preparation for review board Questions to ask Contact with the candidate Structure of the review Making notes Assessing at review board stage Competency measuring questions Number of assessors In general.

We should not forget that we are a student run organization and none of us is a professional in terms of running review boards.learning .impact . explain who you are Try from the very beginning to keep very pleasant and nice atmosphere – it will be helpful for both of you – assessors (as the work will be done in a nice way) and the candidate (as it is much easier to talk about your past performance in such an atmosphere) Communicate how long the review will be Inform the student that you are going to take notes. the candidate will not have any chance to present their competencies! In order to prepare for running the RB you should always: • Read thoroughly the application of the candidate • Choose the questions from application that still need some clarification (maybe the answer was not clear and you are not sure about some competency…) and make some extra examining questions for that • Prepare questions you are going to ask to the candidate in order to check the competencies that have not been measured yet • Think about some more detailed. which will help you to assess them in an objective way Ask if everything is clear Ask if he/she is ready to start the conversation Preparation of the assessor The assessor has a really big responsibility when running the review board. some important things should be remembered at the very beginning of the interview: • • • • • • Introduce yourself and your external guest.4545 Preparation for review board Preparation of both – assessor and candidate is a very important matter. That is why the preparation process should gain even more attention than most of us think! Preparation of the candidate In order to prepare the student for the review talk.quality .diversity . Remember that if you do not ask the proper questions. examining questions to each question you plan to ask • Prepare yourself paper for taking notes – it is suggested to have the assessment forms printed for every candidate (examples attached in the toolkit) .

The point is not that it is bad to have these kind of questions prepared. Smaller questions should be asked one after another with giving enough time for the student to answer. that the main aim of the review board is to receive the proofs of having the desired competency or not. Or when you see that the answer is starting to go astray. Hypothetical questions „What would you do when you were to organize a weekend for 20 international students in 3 days?” “How would you bear working in a team when everyone is responsible for its own field and there is really bad communication between each other?” This is the type of questions that you have to avoid! Firstly. it is very hard to assess such a response objectively. it is important to run it in such a way that it is the candidate who speaks most. goes off the point and you are interested in another dimension of the answer.diversity . opinions. Secondly. That is why instead of asking how the candidate would behave. What kind of action was it? How did you manage to achieve that? What were the results? What are you particularly satisfied about?” It is very common that in case of these kind of questions. at least two smaller questions and they all present a coherent and logical statement. That is why it is not good to ask too many of these kind of questions. They are especially helpful when you want to make sure that you have understood the answer well or to assure yourself about some fact. Another thing is that they might forget some part of the question. we are always building questions which make them saying what they actually did when they were in described situation.impact . the answer you get to such question is very probable to differ from what the candidate would do being in a real situation. Shortly speaking – they make the candidate talk! The examples of these questions: “Please describe a situation when you were working in a team responsible for one common goal” “How did you deal with the difficulties that you encountered while achieving this success?” Closed questions “Did you like working in such stressful situation?” “So your relations with team partners were very good?” To both of these questions the candidate can say “yes” or “no” and the answer will be satisfactory. “Why have you decided to join AIESEC? What would you like to achieve by engaging into this organization? What aspects of your personality would you like to develop? And in which field would you like to work?” “Describe a situation when you engaged your friends into realizing a common action. that they want to answer and ignore the rest of the question. etc.4545 Questions to ask Because of the fact.learning . It is very good and even recommended to have the examining questions for every general one but the point is that they should be used wisely. express feelings. Open questions As a respond to this kind of questions the student can present variety of facts. In order to achieve this you have to ask the proper questions. But for sure they are not a good way to make the student open and talk for longer time.leadership .

Secondly.diversity . examining questions. answers to these questions are always very hypothetical.impact . It is about asking an open question addressing one competency and then “letting the candidate through a funnel” with usage of more detailed. you need to ask more detailed. .4545 Questions to ask Questions about self assessment Very often the candidates are asked to assess themselves during review boards. Examining questions The open questions enable us to obtain the information needed but very often they are not sufficient to assess the candidate in terms of possessing the competency measured.quality . which makes them really hard to assess objectively.leadership . “What are your three strongest points?” “Why do you think you are the best candidate to join AIESEC” That kind of questions is also something that should be avoided. There are two really big disadvantages of them. people who are more eloquent than others are very probable to give better answers and we and up assessing wrong aspect of candidates’ personality. First of all. This technique is extremely useful when there is a time constraint you have to stick to and you need to moderate the student’s answer so that you are able to get the information about the competency relatively fast. examining questions (of course in a very delicate way).

It can be done simply by going through the application and finding the information you find also interest in and you can discuss it with the candidate. with the results of previous stages (to notice for example some discrepancies). Structure of the review Preparing the structure of the review can highly boost its quality because: You are sure that you will not miss any important thing You control the time given for each person in more efficient way The candidate has the impression that the review is a well considered process and really moves on An example of the review structure is presented below: Part of the RB introduction. smile.

You need to keep in mind that a relaxed and comfortably feeling candidate is much more open and it is easier for them to talk about their experiences. compare with competencies measured. A good way of breaking the ice is starting the conversation with something like: “I have read in your application that you once organized a trip to the Tatra Mountains for your class when you were just 15! I am a big fan of trekking! Do you often visit the mountains?” Active listening During review board the candidate shares lots of information that you should remember. achievements and even about things that they would not normally mention. Never forget about warming up the atmosphere at the beginning of the interview. looking straight at the speaker (but without exaggeration) or encouraging to go on by some “uhm”. constant gazing.

Try to write as much as possible but avoid the situations when taking notes prevents you from active listening or leading the conversation.leadership . Remember that your notes will be the only source of information. do not try to hide with it but sit in a position that prevents the student from seeing what you write. When there are at least two assessors a good way is to divide the responsibilities concerning certain competences. about candidate’s competencies suiting the competencies desired.4545 Making notes Making notes is even more important than the preparation for the review board itself!

They never prepare for the disappointment and failure. The rejection is very often a shock. it is mostly resolved to “it will just stay the same. they were too easy/hard!. Remember that the feedback should not answer question “why you did not get there” but “how you did in the selection process”. the assessors were unfair!. you should never force them to.diversity .4545 What to do with the candidates rejected How to communicate the rejection? What do the rejected feel? How should this information be build? The way the rejected candidates are informed about the process results determines strongly how they will perceive AIESEC from this point on. The point is to make them aware that the chances were equal. That kind of information are probable to enforce student’s psychological defense mechanisms as at that time he/she is concerned with protecting themselves and minimizing the feeling of failure. The recruitment is something that not only requires time and preparation from the candidates. what can be improved.quality . Most of them engage into it emotions too. Another important thing is that when giving feedback. If they are not interested in it. They never think about their reaction when they would be not accepted and even if they do. the life will look as it looks now”. etc. The most common reaction then is contradiction and looking for the guilty in the process itself – the questions were not proper!. the recruitment was unreliable!. There are lots of aspirations the candidates connect with the recruitment process. what they will do in AIESEC.

give suggestions how they can improve their personality features that might boost their chances in future similar attempts. “good”. you should offer them positive impression of the process. Most of the people are aware of their strengths and weaknesses.learning . such words as “weak”. the students should optimistically look into the future. encourage him/her to express the opinion about their “performance”. describe that there was an ideal profile of a new member and that the candidates were compared to it. “better”. standards that were looked for and in which the candidate failed. Avoid giving any judgements. “poor”. give them this possibility and encourage to benefit from it but never force them. you can achieve that by describing examples of other approaches and behaviours possible and suggesting some ways of improving. What is good in one context might be impermissible in different situation. Remember that the information here should not be too detailed – do not describe the competencies and their levels. Give some examples of skills. they have also many advantages! Remember that they might not agree for the feedback.impact . Do not just say where they failed. Indicate which competencies were looked for. Concentrate on the positive features too. If the student wants to obtain the information (face to face).diversity . Do not make the feedback too detailed. .leadership . the only thing they did was applying to AIESEC.quality . They should just receive the general clues concerning the fields of their mismatching with the Core Profile and some comment about the field whose improvement might increase their chances next time. encourage them to describe the fields where they missed the desired profile.4545 Below you can find a set of advices you can use when thinking about how to inform the people rejected Allow them to decide whether they want to receive feedback. behaviours. Remember that after receiving feedback. The candidates do not want just to hear their failures. etc. the candidates should also know that except for some failings. are very relative and hard to analyze. if the person is interested. The usage of proper questions can help them to understand their characteristics. for example. They expect some clues how to improve their competencies and abilities. they just need to put it in the context of the profile we were looking for. there is no sense in crush the students with loads of information. You can for example refer to the behaviours included in some competency and tell the student that he/she should work on. they did not ask for any deep personality analyzes. Concentrate on the behaviour that is possible to change. “being open to people’s feedback given during team work”.

In terms of getting to know and understanding our organization.impact . It is the essence of the Introduction to AIESEC stage in one’s AIESEC Experience. planning Joining the AIESEC network . the Induction process can be described as four sets of activities aiming at four important aspects that the Induction is to fulfill. setting goals.diversity . There are several goals that this part has to fulfill: Providing basic information about AIESEC Supporting new members to begin exploring their own role in the world.quality .leadership .4545 How the Induction should look like What is induction and why do we run it? How it should be organized? What kind of knowledge and activities should be delivered during first weeks? What is induction? Induction is what the newly recruited members go through after being recruited and before they are allocated or choose their way of engagement into AIESEC.learning .

They are not aware how to boost their effectiveness. That is why first coaching meetings. conclusions to our members but it is never said that those aspects delivered will be ever received.

On the next page you can find the division of the Induction activities that should be delivered to our new members.diversity . That means that we can offer more responsible and developing activities for those students in order to develop their competencies faster to the higher levels. Those two facts – higher competencies from the very beginning and faster development of older new members is something that should be remembered during coaching process. knowledge or AIESEC understanding that were mentioned here are good examples showing how the first weeks of members’ engagement can be organized.leadership . The new members should be aware of what it is. Learning Environment The activities developing new members’ competencies. skills. They will not have so much time to develop their competencies as their younger friends. how it is build and what development possibilities it offers.learning . when presenting opportunities for them. Learning Environment is the aspect of our organization that enables our learning. What is important is that the whole set of activities should include all the elements of our Learning Environment.quality . without any of its elements. The content of the first Local Committee Conference is meant to allow for three important things: During this conference the members have chance to build deep understanding of AIESEC as an organization They can get to know the possibilities of involvement and have a chance to decide where they want to get engaged in their LC The conference is the time when the new members get to know AIESEC people (LC members and interns) The unification of the LCC agenda between LCs aims at bringing more quality to the Induction process as the LCs will be helped by the MC in terms of content building and there is no risk that the content of LCC and the Winter Conference will be doubled in some aspect. A good example is a learning circle. That is why the spectrum of activities offered should be always spread over all LE elements. our AIESEC experience would not be so developing. . The reason for that was the fact that their AIESEC experience will be relatively shorter than the younger members’.4545 A very important thing that needs to be remembered here is the fact that the older new members recruited are the students from whom higher competencies were required from the very beginning.impact . Instead of offering them participation in such a happening they can be offered taking up the responsibility to organize such event for the Local Committee.

It does not need to be exemplified by AIESEC but in best situation – by well known and successful organizations. There is a probability that it will be the first time for most new members when they meet the conception of organizational vision. Nature. their characteristics and should know that they are represented by our Model Competencies. students and teachers. During this session the delegates should be familiarized with the idea of indirect impact AIESEC has on the communities thanks to the people it develops. It is very essential that this block is carefully prepared as the delegates should gain the right understanding of our organization after it. Core Work) – the best situation is when there is much time spent on discussions here so that the delegates are given chance to express what they understand by each element. Global Competency Model These three aspects should be treat as one coherent block where the delegates have a chance to get deep understanding of AIESEC. They should perceive the topic based interactions with other people as a great way to enhance their learning and they should be aware how the LNs bring added value thanks to bringing the connections of people interested in the same topic and having similar development path to the international level. that is why it should be the last in the AIESEC describing block. They should connect the AIESEC Experience with the development of competencies in our organization. There are always at least two people needed for learning. All members of AIESEC are facilitators. Learning Environment The delegates should understand what Learning Environment is. exchange points of views. strategies carried out by the organizations and how it contributes to its success.diversity . challenge our world view on many topics.quality . AIESEC Experience. It is important that they understand our vision and see clear link between our every day actions and it. This is a session that should be run before the AIESEC Identity session. come to new conclusions. change our ways of perception. each of us has something to teach and learn. Learning Networks After this session the delegates should understand the idea of LNs.learning . There is no teacher and student here.4545 Explanation of the particular sessions/activities content Local Committee Conference Organizational vision and values The aim of this session is to show importance of having clearly defined vision and values in an organization.leadership . The knowledge about GCM should not be too detailed at this stage – they should understand the idea of change agents. AIESEC relevance This is a session whose aim is to gather all the information from previous sessions in order to bring it to broader picture. this is what we do every day and thanks to it we are able to develop ourselves. what parts it consists of. After this session they should see the uniqueness of each LE element in terms of development and they should understand that it is the LE that drives the development in our people. develop people and get closer to our vision. but who are also committed to ensure that all participants are learning. It is suggested that this kind of summary is presented on the Issue Based AIESEC Experience graph. They should perceive the AIESEC Learning Environment as a community of individuals who are committed to learning and teaching. That is why they need to understand the general idea of it before they are acquainted with AIESEC Identity. It is an ideal development path that every AIESEC member should go through. that is the development of positive leaders – the change agents who contribute to our vision realization. etc. which is a chance rather rarely available for students nowadays. AIESEC Experience – it is the Core Work of our organization. The new members should be given some examples of situation when an organization was led to unbelievable success by a challenging vision. The delegates should understand each stage of it together with when they can benefit from it and how they can develop there. AIESEC Identity. The power of the networks is the power of the international network that AIESEC is. After this session the delegates should understand how vision reflects the activities. Values. The content of this block should cover three aspects: The Identity deep understanding (Vision. They should understand that as AIESEC members. teaching and following the principles of the community. AIESEC enables us to discuss. Role. .impact .

there is also time for interesting discussion. but it also unites the team in their actions. what possibilities are available for them. that means that except for the knowledge explaining some issues conceptions. reading a book…) as their development element in the first period of the project. interactions. It should be adjusted to the local realities. AIESEC fun part Roll-calls. reception events. conference elements – gossip box. shouts. issue) development.impact . PGS Those three elements should be organized with a very visible connection between them. It is suggested that the first PGS is focusing more on the attempt to discover their strengths. It is also important that issue based project OC is given a chance at the very beginning of their activity to deepen their knowledge in that issue. @net communities. The first PGS session (which might be first this kind of session in their lives) should not be connected with their long term plans (as their AIESEC understanding is at very basic level) but more with the coming weeks – which project they would like to involve in and why. becoming a buddy. The best situation is when it is organized in a way including “challenging worldview elements”. exchange overview training – ie.learning . It can be organized externally or planned by the OC (issue based discussion.quality . the exchange process. personal interests and fields they would like to develop in. The people who after taking responsibility stage are able and will to take part in the exchange need to clarify their future development path very soon after joining AIESEC.leadership . There should be some activities provided that will develop their issues knowledge so that they gain clear understanding about what topics the projects are built on and it is easier for them to make right decision between them. There are two aspects of this importance – motivation the internationalism gives to our people and the fact that the older new members will have occasion to get to know and to get interested by this stage in their AIESEC Experience. The project planning done by the project OC should be supplemented by individual planning of learning one wants to experience thanks to the project. the pools. @dances. requirements). weaknesses. (topic) parties. This can be then aligned straight with the possibilities offered by the LC and will make their choice more aware. The new members should be familiarized with what they can do in their LC. is highlighted during the first weeks of Induction (exchangers’ presentations. There should be some kind of PGS concerning one’s involvement into project that will be connected with personal skills or knowledge (ie. This session has more of an informational character so that the people know that each of them will have a person who will be helping them in their development and performance. The important thing is that this kind of session should not be run with a goal to explain the project organized but to create a general possibility to interact around some issue. . The Induction period between LCC and Winter Conference The presented division of activities between particular weeks that was depicted on the graph above has more of an exemplary character. preferences.4545 Coaching The aim of having a coaching session at first LCC is having the new members acquainted with coaching as a tool used in our organization to effectively align our personal needs. possibilities and capacity.diversity . local projects. what projects are organized and what kind of development engagement into each of these opportunities brings. punishment team… Issues knowledge The new members should be given a chance to interact with one another around the issues upon which the local projects are based. It is important that the international character of AIESEC. getting to know other points of view… Possibilities in LC. the exchange. development plans with what AIESEC offers and to help boost effectiveness in our daily work. However. there are things in this graph that follow some logic that should be remembered about while constructing the induction period. Not only does this bring more understanding of an issue.
