Hiring “with people in mind ” and before you know it, I’m part of Cocone! Recruitment Manager
※This article is machine translated.
Hello everyone, this is Haru, a recruiting and public relations intern.
March is here, and the weather is getting a little warmer in the quintessence!
It is especially troubling because there are so many things that need to be done, yet there is so much sunshine that makes us sleepy.
Well, this is the eighth interview with a Cocone employee!
This time, we interviewed Mr. Muroi, who is in charge of recruitment!
What is the nature of your work?
As the hiring manager, I am responsible for the overall hiring process at Cocone.
I may be in charge of interviews and interviews, but basically I check on the progress of the overall hiring process, develop strategies on how to attract people to sections where hiring is stagnant, and plan events and other activities.
It is more of an internal aspect rather than an external one, such as dealing with candidates and agents.
My interview was handled by Mr. Muroi, but I wonder if that was a bit rare. ……
Mr. Muroi, why did you decide to join Cocone?
It was at that time that I received an invitation from Cocone, half in the form of a scout, to ” exchange information with other HR people, ” and I decided to visit their office with the intention of just listening to what they had to say.
From there, it was like, “Huh? Is this a prerequisite for me to change jobs? I was so excited that my eyes were black and white, and then, just like that, the conversation progressed to a presentation and interview in front of the company president (laughs).
Ultimately, I decided to join the company because I thought that if I came to Cocone, I might be able to specialize in recruiting engineers, something I had always struggled with. ……
I had no intention of changing jobs from my previous company, and it took a lot of courage for me to leave there and come to Cocone, but the people who talked with me and pushed me were a big part of that.
Please tell us about each of the most rewarding and difficult aspects of your job!
Cocone is currently very focused on recruitment, so it’s all about the hard work! (laughs)
Whether it is promoting overseas expansion or launching a new business, the hiring team has a great deal of responsibility because they need people anyway they can. In particular, the market for the personnel that the division is looking for is extremely high, so it is extremely difficult to recruit even one person. In such a situation, we are running with the goal of ” recruiting several hundred people a year! It is really tough to set a goal of “recruiting several hundred people a year!
However, I am very happy when the person I hired is successful and the employees around me “” You brought in a great person.
In addition, since assuming the position of leader, I have been most pleased not only to hear such voices from the field, but also to see the people on the recruiting team become more active!
As a leader, I often have to be strict with the team members because they are required to do quite difficult things, but I think the most rewarding thing for me now is to see them overcome these difficulties and grow, and to feel that this leads to results.
What do you value in your work?
In dealing with people within the company, as well as with those who help us recruit and candidates, I have an unwavering awareness of “thinking of others ” in my mind.
For example, during interviews, I always try to explain to candidates directly in my own voice what is not fully explained on our website or in our materials, and when I ask someone in the company to do something, I do not just say, “Please do this for me! When you ask someone in the company to do something, don’t just say, “Please do this!” and throw everything at them.
I think it is very important to be able to put yourself in the other person’s shoes and act with consideration, because the foundation of our work is our relationships with people.
It may be one of the most important things in my work.
Cocone places great importance on “sensitivity.” What does “sensitivity” mean to you?
I think I may be overstating things a bit (laugh). (laugh), but I feel that the “sensibility” we refer to at Cocone is not ” sensibility” as it is defined in the dictionary.
It’s difficult to describe precisely, but in my mind, it’s more like “imagination.
Imagination is important in communication with others as well as in work. I think it is “sensitivity” that makes it possible to imagine what is “best for the place and the people ” based on a proper purpose, not just on a feeling, and to make choices in one’s own way.
Finally, do you have any advice or message for those who are currently considering joining the company?
I would like to answer this question from my personal point of view, not as a hiring manager!
Although Cocone is a really warm company, it also has a tough side that is not only friendly, especially during the current transitional period when we are trying to grow even more.
I would like to see people who are not intimidated by such an environment, but who are excited by the harshness of the environment.
If you are that kind of person, I am sure you will enjoy your days working at Cocone, and I am sure you will achieve great growth, so if you are interested in taking on this challenge, please do not hesitate to contact us! We look forward to working with you!
I felt that Ms. Muroi’s thoughts on the importance of “thinking of others ” in her work, while remembering to pay attention to detail and sincerity in even the smallest details, are precisely because she has been working with ” people ” to the utmost of her ability!
As I myself have embarked on my own job search, I have come to realize that “in the end, the relationship between a candidate and a recruiter is also a relationship between people, so it is important to be able to communicate with each other with consideration for the other “
If I can always do my best to imagine the feelings and thoughts of others, instead of just ending up with a token courtesy, will I be one step closer to becoming a full-fledged person? ……!
As was mentioned in the interview, Cocone is now at a turning point for further growth, which I, as the last member of the recruitment and PR department, can feel firsthand every day.
