scare“Obnoxious” isn’t a hiring strategy.
Especially if you are a brand seeking qualified support on the ground in China.
YOU might think your brand is awesome. That you have something special to sell.
Maybe outside China it IS and you can get away with being cavalier…after all, you are the prize.
But that isn’t true when you are recruiting qualified, in-demand partners in China.
Most are fully booked or at least “satisfied” with their client roster and can afford to turn you down.
(Who wants to work with jerks anyway?)
So here’s a few things to avoid (if possible) when interviewing third parties:
> Constantly ask for ad hoc meetings
> Expecting instant responses and results
> Being late to meetings every single time
> Cancelling without prior notice
> Being a no-show for meetings
> Pressuring partners to perform but offering no budget
