Member Development Event I: Last Employee Hired

Last Employee Hired is a game inspired by the anxiety onset due to the preparation for job interviews during and after college graduation. The game focuses on the strengths and weaknesses of candidates-for-hire in IS-specific job positions. In collaboration with Makesha Hillery with University Career Services, AIS has created a fun and interactive way to gain an understanding on how to become competitive in IS-related career fields.

Last Employee Hired is about a company looking for the most competitive employee in the labor market before the nation-wide hiring freeze. Human Resource Manager (the moderator) has been tasked to hire a professional, recent-graduate that is innovative, personable, and has a broad knowledge of Information Systems.

In order to complete the task in a time-efficient manner, the Human Resource Manager has created a list of criteria and characteristics in which he/she will match against each candidate.

Candidates (members) will be evaluated on, but not limited to, the following criteria:

  1. Appearance
    1. Neatness
    2. Appropriate attire
    3. Manicured hair and nails
  2. Resumes
    1. Critical Skills
    2. Experience
    3. Education
    4. Format
  3. Common IS-Related Interview Questions
    1. Example: "How comfortable are you working in a work environment characterized by ambiguity?"
  4. Other common criterium hiring managers typically look at during interviews
    1. Body language
    2. Heavy use of "umm", "like", and "so"

 Do you have what it takes to be the last employee hired?

 

 

The last candidate standing will receive a gift basket full of"Dorm Essentials":

  • 1 full size laundry deterge
