Sriram said: (Jan 5, 2017)  
You see, there's something that counts as 'experience' in job.

As an insider person would have more experience, he would be an apt choice.

But it's applicable when you are concerned with only getting the job done.

Contrary to that, when a new person joins a company, he'd see it through a new angle, since his mind is still fresh, he'd be ready to try new things, instead of following the old procedure. And it has a high chance of improving the efficiency of your company.

So it would be better to hire someone like me who has a mind for analysis, rather than someone who'd just be more than happy to keep the ways as they are and stagnating the progress.

Promoting trusted employees of yours is good to some extent, but Hiring me at this point of time instead of promoting internal employee is better choice. Because if I am moving from current organization to yours my ideas and thought process in work will be new and effective to your organization that will ultimately leads to mutual growth i.e., for organization and me as well. I believe new association will be always good for an organization.

Sir,

It's good idea to promote the existing employee, because they know the situation and condition and how to act in urgent time. But you need to fix the urgent thing with the smart work not with the hard work. So exactly you need a trick to fix that, like combine the existing employee with the new one.

So the new one will give your company the fresh idea while your employee carry out this fresh idea. It will be stronger.

I could give you a lot of reasons why you should hire me. With a list of experience and loads of personality that goes with it. That is the perfect recipe for excellent businessman. Even if they have been there for years, don't mean they know what it take to move the business forward.

If you have that thought process, I will tell you, you would never be prosperous. If you are at the top of field and excelling tremendously. I would tell do not hire me, because what you doing now is working. But, if you want your company to reach it's highest level of potential. I am that person.

Yes Sir, definitely you could have promoted someone within the organisation for this position. But the present employee must have seen only the present aspect and working strategy within the organisation. Being a outsider at present I can see various aspects from outside. I have worked in the same field with other strategies I can complete the same work with innovations with another aspect.

Yes Sir/Madam, definitely you can hire existing employee for this position, at the same time here the position needs a candidate who can perform responsibilities in a innovative manner, as I feel like existing employee may knows better about your org and activities so that he can perform well, but I can surely say that if your can hire some new employee, he will be helpful in giving best process/ technology ideas of what he learnt from the past experience/outside market.
