Experienced recruiters know that people have possibility to prepare carefully for the interview as there are many tips for job candidates on the net.

HOW TO DEFINE THE TRUE VALUES OF LIFE

Larysa Tarasyuk, a lecturer at the Institute of Psychology and Entrepreneurship, an associate professor at the Institute of Psychology and Entrepreneurship, spoke in her author’s lecture about search for the values of life about how to realize one’s real needs. Most of us do not realize that we can consciously choose our values, and therefore we do not choose them – but they choose us.

To find the so-called “focal” point of view, which will give the correct impression of both the details and the whole, the IPE teacher invited the audience to consider the theory of human values through the prism of axiology, the philosophical doctrine of the values nature.

The Doctor of Philosophy noted that axiology as an independent field of study arises when the concept of being is split into two elements: reality and value as the object of various human desires and aspirations.

Values, according to axiology, are a certain normative category that covers everything which can be a goal, an ideal, an object of attraction, aspiration and interest.

The main concepts and categories of this theory are the good, dignity, meaning, evaluation, benefit, victory, meaning of life, happiness, respect, etc.

Larysa Tarasyuk stressed that a stable set of values of a person determines such personality qualities as integrity, reliability, fidelity to certain principles and ideals, the ability to willpower in the name of these values and ideals, activity in life, persistence in achieving goals. At the same time, contradictions in value orientations give rise to inconsistencies in behavior, underdevelopment, infantilism, the dominance of external stimuli in the internal structure of the individual, the influence of the desire object on the need.

Values according to the marks of existence
Values are determined by the sense of life, intelligence and probability, as Larisa Tarasyuk claimed.

The head of the Department of Social Sciences and Humanities at IPE noted the need to clearly define for each individual what attitude he wants to embody, and then consciously, purposefully and systematically do everything necessary to develop and consolidate this attitude in his own value system

The lecturer also told the audience about types of values according to the lifeside, highlighting the following:

The side of cause — freedom, love, creativity, some root cause of everything that happens

The side of intuition — accurate clear consciousness, holistic knowledge, getting to the point.

Eidos side – ideas, project (Plato and his doctrine of eidos)

The side of the heart is a spiritual center that connects the microworld and the macroworld of an individual, it is qualities, empathy, compassion, mercy, warmth, etc..

The mental side is thoughts, our acquired intellect.

The sensual side, the astral – psycho-emotional side, human feelings.

Physical side – material values: food, clothes, housing, material support.

 

Value thinking generates precious thoughts, ideas, projects

Associate Professor of Social Sciences and Humanities also noted that value thinking forms holistic worldview, which has independence, self-criticism, self-knowledge, creativity, a deep desire for system. At the same time, this is what gives the opportunity to gain confidence, stability in life, and the holistic worldview is a constant process of personal development, a constant work of the spirit that overcomes its own limitations.

The product of value thinking is creativity, as well as the embodiment of its ideas in the world of objectification. Personality development does not allow omitting of stages. Each previous step carries precious experience, which it passes on to the next and so on endlessly.Therefore, the stages of our development cannot be missed. We all go up the stairs of life and it is necessary to go through all its stages, i.e life stages. By jumping, stopping, hurrying, we can disturb the harmony of our evolution.

Larysa Tarasyuk assured that everyone should ask himself directly, unambiguously and honestly: “What are my values? Are they manifested in me? And if not, then why? ” Once you realize your attitude to the world it begins to change.Surface changes occur quickly, deeper ones are slower. Therefore, it is necessary to build your own hierarchy of values, in accordance with the highest spiritual, moral values.

IPE TEACHERS TAKE PART IN ALL-UKRAINIAN ONLINE-HR-MARATHON

Teachers of the Institute of Psychology and Entrepreneurship took part in the “Online HR Marathon №5”, which was held by the business media holding Ekonomika +. To run the marathon, media bureau specialists brought together market leaders to support Ukrainian business during the crisis and help HR professionals who want to quickly and painlessly adapt the team to the new mode of operation.

Speaking to the audience of the online marathon, Olena Babina,the President of the Institute of Psychology and Entrepreneurship, noted that today it is important for business owners to develop the ability of quick adaptation to crisis realities. Besides, Olena Babina recommended that students took advantage of some features of the crisis in their work.

“In today’s real life, interviews are mostly held in video format.

In order to make the right choice in favor of a candidate an HR professional, CEO or business owner should take advantage of possibility to assess a specialist   through video interview. It can be sent to the client or the manager, and he will be able to watch the video at any time convenient for him, “said Elena Babina, President of IPE.

During the event, recruitment specialists provided the audience with anti-crisis tools and an effective strategy for further development. In her speech to the online audience, Yaroslava Shkurko, a lecturer at the Institute of Psychology and Entrepreneurship,  Candidate of Psychological Science, noted that during the interview with the candidate it is important to pay attention to the peculiarities of psycholinguistics.

«If the candidate uses verbs meaning “completenes” or “perfection”, for example — “fulfill”, “achieve”, then such a candidate is set for the result, not the current process».

At the same time, in order to understand psychological features of the candidate, the lecturer of the Institute of Psychology and Entrepreneurship Mykhailo Ioffe recommended the audience to use the knowledge of kinetics and proxemics.

“If a person does not cover the visceral area – it means that he is as open as possible. If a person uses gestures with open palms, he is telling the truth.

If the candidate strokes the fingers of one hand with the fingers of the other hand, he is in a state of stress and tries to calm himself“, said non-verbal communication specialist Mykhailo Ioffe.

Taking into consideration realities today, it is also worth paying attention to the background chosen by the candidate for the video interview. To understand more about the person at the first meeting, Iryna Khomenko, a lecturer at the Institute of Psychology and Entrepreneurship, recommended that the marathon audience analyze candidate’s appearance. The stylist noted that, for example, the choice of accessories characterizes personality and life priorities of the candidate.

“The psychology of color will help you understand what a person wants to show you. If the candidate has a white collar, it means that he is a person of rules and used to follow established frameworks. At the same time, a large number of accessories tells about versatility of the individual and richness of the inner world, “said Iryna Khomenko, a teacher at IPP.
