Five Proven Steps to Improve Your Work Life

by admin 27/12/2018 0 comments

Researches have revealed over the years that the career paths of employees are littered with discouraging and depressing curves and twists. Fewer professionals are emerging from dark tunnels and moving closer to career dreams. More and more job seekers are going through challenging realities these days.

Are you going through the lowest or perhaps the most challenging curves and twists in your career paths? What are your plans to improve your work life in the New Year?

The following proven steps have helped many job seekers to move closer to their career dreams.

1. Find and work with committed mentors:
According to John C. Crosby, “mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction.” There is immense value in having a professional relationship with more experienced individual(s) to guide you, as you navigate your career paths.

2. Build or join a reliable and dependable network of professionals
With the rise and rise of the Internet and social media, building or joining business or professional networks is a lot easier and more rewarding today than ever before. Networking has helped small and large businesses to build and promote their social capital. It has helped professionals to identify and address real and perceived challenges barring them from career success. Find and join a group today.

3. Improve your competencies
How strong and valuable are your skills? How much knowledge and expertise do you have and how passionate are you about your chosen profession?

It is common knowledge these days that hiring managers focus more on competencies in hiring. They now look out more for candidates with demonstrable and valuable competencies.

Develop and sharpen your skills, knowledge and attributes which make you more competitive in the job market.

4. Invest in personal and professional development
We all know there is a price for everything! As a professional, your desire and commitment to succeed should also have a price tag.  

How much time, money and other resources do you invest in your personal and professional development? Investing in your personal and career development helps you to take responsibility for your life and your happiness.

Create and manage a personal development action plan to capture your self-improvement and commitment to your skills, intellectual and spiritual growth.

5. Be positive at all times
A few quotes may be helpful here:
“If you have a dream, don’t just sit there. Gather courage to believe that you can succeed and leave no stone unturned to make it a reality” – Roopleen

“You can, you should, and if you are brave enough to start, you will” – Stephen King

Our best wishes for a better and happier work life in the New Year!

How to make an impression during an interview

by admin 01/07/2018 0 comments

Interviews are a very common step in the job searching process. After submitting a resume, the employer will want to meet with you to discuss your qualifications further and see if you will be the right fit for the job and the organization. The interview can make or break your chances at the job and it’s important to get it right.

So how do you make a stellar impression during the job interview?

The most important way to give a great performance and leave a lasting impression is to be prepared. Review your resume and know it inside and out. Be prepared if they ask you specific questions regarding one of your skills.

  1. Bring a portfolio. Always have a few resumes, samples of work or copies of certificates on-hand and ready to give out. Most interviewers will have your resume printed out, but you may be interviewed by someone else last minute who may not have a copy. Show them you’re prepared and can anticipate change by bringing a few extra copies of your resume and cover letter. Wow them even more by bringing samples of work, if applicable, to the interview, such as published writing samples, creative designs or websites you’ve created.
  2. Rehearse an introduction. No one likes small talk and it can often be awkward. Prepare a few things to say that will break the ice. Your interview starts as soon as you step foot into the building. From how you act around others in the office to how to talk to the receptionist, everything you do is being watched and analyzed. Be respectful, cheerful and open the door for others around you.
  3. Practice the questions you know the interviewer will ask. There’s always a few staple questions: tell me about yourself. Walk me through me your resume. Tell me about your short and long-term goals. Having ideas for these common questions will eliminate award pauses during the interview.
  4. Treat the interview as a conversation. You want to develop a two-way conversation with the interviewer where you both feel comfortable and engaged in the discussion. Try to relate to the interviewer and find common ground between you two. You should be enthusiastic for and excited to be there. Thinking of the interview as a conversation and not an interrogation will ease nerves and make the dialogue easy.
  5. Research the company. Surf their website and any recent news articles. Absorb any and all information you can about the company structure, staff, fun facts, recent accomplishments and their company achievements. If they have four core pillars of work, know the pillars and the details in each one. You want to show them that you have researched the company and their beliefs and values are aligned with yours.
  6. Watch your nervous habits. If you know you have a bad habit when you’re nervous, like nail biting or hair twirling, find a way to keep the fidgeting at bay. Hold something in your hand that will distract you from your need to constantly touch your hair.
  7. Be honest. It’s important to make an impression on the interviewer so they can properly gauge if you’ll be a good fit for the job. That being said, don’t lie about your qualifications or experience. If you haven’t ever used Excel and they ask your proficiency, just be honest. Tell them you haven’t needed to use the tool in the past but that you’re willing to learn and will work on it before the job is set to start. This shows the interviewer you’re driven and a problem solver.
  8. Don’t be afraid to ask for a minute to reflect. It’s perfectly acceptable to ask for some time to think about a response to a tricky questions. Asking for the minute of reflection time will show you like to think out answers and not just blurt out the first thing that comes to mind. Avoid the post-interview regret and inevitable question “why did I say that?” and take your time to respond.
  9. Prepare questions. At the end of the interview, the interviewer will ask you if you have any questions. Never say no. Always have a few questions prepared regarding anything you can possibly think of related to the job – working hours, option to work from home/remote access, who would you report to, dress code, etc. You can really impress them by asking how a certain issue in the news could affect business, or what strategy they are imploring to make the best of the end of their fiscal quarter.
  10. Focus on your strengths. Don’t dwell on the fact that you don’t know something. Rather, highlight the areas you do know well. Being self-aware will tell the interviewer you don’t know everything, but you do have other skills that may be unique to the team.
  11. Give a firm, but not too firm, handshake. At the beginning and end of the interview, be sure to say hello and goodbye/thank you to everyone in the room. Make eye contact as you shake their hand and smile. This will show your appreciation for both the opportunity at the position and for their time.

Is It Hard To Get A Job?

by admin 25/06/2018 0 comments

In this article, Joel Winter, an employment management professional, discusses some of the challenges in job search these days.

Oh, man—what a great question. What a GREAT question!

I’m a professional “hire-er.” I’ve dedicated over twenty years of my life to recruiting, to interviewing, and to making hiring decisions for and with companies.

And I, myself, am currently looking for a job—so I think I have some context to answer this question with!
To start with, it’s really not that HARD to get a job. Compared to working as a farmer, or in a foundry (I assume!), or ship-breaking, applications and interviews are pretty easy things to do. Sure, it takes time—but the physical effort is actually not that significant.

So, why doesn’t everyone get the first job they apply for? (Maybe that’s a clearer questions that gets to the heart of what you’re asking?)
One reason is that hiring is broken. It’s largely a guessing game. The resume is an imperfect tool to demonstrate the critical skills and experience that many jobs require; the interview doesn’t measure those actual skills—it just asks you to talk about them; and hiring managers aren’t experts in hiring—they’re usually experts in their field of choice.

Managers don’t think critically about what they really need in an employee (really need), and HR departments don’t do good jobs of helping them define (and publicize) those skills and needs. That means that you, as an applicant, read a list of titles and job requirements, and have to guess if you’re a fit or not. (So, you hedge your bets, and apply to a bunch of jobs that you’re not a fit for—or that you just WANT to be a fit for).

You develop a resume that consists of a bunch of words that you’ve carefully selected and positioned in a way that you think will be interesting to the person reading it—and it might—or might not. And you never really find out how it worked (unless you get an interview).
Interviewers ask a bunch of questions that are meaningless, or don’t help them assess whether you’d be a good employee or not. They ask stupid questions that either you have a canned answer to—or they ask questions that they should in no way trust your answer to. Interviewers have “pet” questions that they believe divine “true” answers—but they’re really just trick questions that the interviewer interprets through their own biases and experience.

Interviews rarely give a candidate an opportunity to actually demonstrate their expertise or facility in the skills they’ll be using on the job. The interview is an artificial environment—and is a scenario almost no-one will ever recreate when actually doing their job. Candidates won’t be talking about what they do—they’ll be doing it. Interviews hire good story-tellers.

There’s a weird power imbalance in hiring, too. Companies seem to want to keep the actual qualifications for the job a secret. (This might be because they’re so poorly defined, and because of threats of legal actions for some of the real reasons. Often the critical skills for office jobs are work ethic, passion, drive, tact, self-motivation, independence, political savvy, etc.—how do you interview someone for those things?) Most people who interview get rejected for quite minor reasons. “Cultural fit” is a biggie (what does that really mean?!) Sometimes a question is answered in a slightly oblique way—but the hiring team puts massive importance on anything odd, and they tend to blow things way out of proportion. Entire candidates are rejected because of a hiring manager’s simple suspicion about a given answer! A suspicion!

Candidates don’t usually have enough information (or power) to ask meaningful questions, in return. They have the company’s website, Glassdoor, and maybe a friend or two to ask about what the job really entails, or what it’s really like to work there—and then if they get an offer, they just take it.
Oddly, hiring managers almost always tell us that they don’t want to take the first candidate that they interview. Even when that person is a great fit! They want to compare them to someone else! Now—that’s probably quite understandable, in some ways—but I’d guess that hiring would be “easier” for about 15% of the vacancies if the hiring manager did hire that great-fit first candidate without meeting anyone else. 15%!

Finally, some jobs really are complex. They really do require what we call a “purple squirrel.” They might be two jobs mushed into one, and might require some odd mix of odd skills. Every company is different at any one point in its history, and making a match between their current situation and the people doing its work can be a delicate thing to match up. The team you’d be joining is also full of unique people with their own abilities, flaws, political leanings, and finding the right match to complement/battle/enhance those people is a tricky thing.

There are entire books written about these challenges—but few take the solutions offered. Solutions can be time-consuming, expensive—and may even add significant complexity to a process you already consider “hard.” Perhaps some day you’ll be a hiring manager or in charge of recruiting, and you can join me in trying to make things.

Joel Winter has over 20 years experience in hiring, employment and recruiting management.”

Six Career Stoppers to Avoid

by admin 04/06/2018 0 comments

Getting a job is a lot easier for many employees than holding on to it. A great number of job seekers are more scared of the uncertainties and insecurity ahead of them as they expect that job offer letter.

The following tips have helped many prospective and serving employees to cope with the uncertainties on their career path.

1. Adapting to change: Failing to adapt to change in a work place is a major challenge for employees these days. Many employees have great difficulties understanding the need to recognize the differences in the way things are done in their new places of work.

Others do not readily recognize and accept the differences in personalities and values at work. Their intolerance of other people’s cultural values, beliefs, attitude and behavior often impact their interactions in work place. Employees who are not committed to promoting tolerance and acceptance of diversity at work are less likely to hold on to their jobs.

2. Arrogance: It is common knowledge that arrogant people have enormous challenges connecting with other people, especially at work. Arrogant people are less likely to get feedback from colleagues because they are often excessively defensive and listen less. Most arrogant people see change or suggestions as personal threats and often react negatively, because they usually operate outside the information circle. Employees who do not control their arrogance often have challenges working in teams.

3. Insensitivity: Almost flowing directly from arrogance is the great problem of insensitivity. Employees who are insensitive to the plight of other employees are usually bad team players and are often perceived as rigid and dismissive. Insensitive managers often convert their beliefs to work commandments and do not care what it takes to secure the compliance and conforming conducts of their subordinates.

4. Excessive ambition: It is quite arguably a great value to be ambitious, especially in the performance of tasks for which our skills are well sharpened. On the other hand, however, excessive ambition can be a great problem. A good number of employees who are viewed as excessively ambitious are also often perceived as destructive and capable of doing anything to climb to whatever level they want on their career ladders. Excessively ambitious employees may be highly intelligent, very skilled and passionate about their work, but the fear of what colleagues think they are capable of doing to achieve their dreams may be detrimental to their career success.

5. Skills deficiency: This is quite common and an over-articulated reason many employees are fired. Not having the required skills for a job is a common HR problem. Skills are to jobs what rains are to flowers. Hone your skills for that job and stay focused on getting regular skills upgrade to remain competitive as an employee.

6. Workplace politics: Most of what fuels workplace politics is ‘gossip’. Most of what lubricates gossip is ‘rumour’. Be careful who you listen to when stories or reports of uncertain or doubtful truth fill the airspace at work.

Ontario government announces $124 million to help youth find jobs

by admin 14/04/2018 0 comments

Eighteen-year-old Amanda Gurney suffers from anxiety and depression which makes it hard for her to find work. She says the provinces’ new employment-planning counselling program (EPC) really helped her find a placement and secure a job at Morello’s Independent Grocer in Peterborough.

“Going to EPC was very useful, probably the best thing I’ve done for myself in a long time and it was just a great experience,” said Gurney.
On Tuesday, the Ontario government announced an investment of $124 million to help youth aged 15 to 29 to find jobs in a new program called the Employing Young Talent Incentive.

“There were a lot of people that needed help getting jobs because either they had been fired or were having trouble or they just never had one before so I was in a class with them and we all just kind of, it was just a group of people that you wouldn’t think would click. By the end of the four weeks, we were all great friends.”

If you are an employer, you can get $1,000 to $2,000 for hiring and retaining a young person if you are :
— a small business operator with fewer than 100 employees, through employment service
— an employer of any size, through youth job connection.
You may also qualify for other financial help.

Owner of Morello’s Independent Grocer, Dave Morello, says he’s hired at least 20 youth employees through this new program.
“For hiring now, we’ll contact the EPC and we’ll tell them what jobs we are hiring for, what sort of qualifications or what sort of availability we are looking for, and they’ll screen and forward us resumes. We do the interviewing of course, and then we take care of the hiring,” Morello said.
With summer around the corner, young people can also join the youth job connection summer program. It gives youth at least 20 hours of paid training to prepare them for the workplace, a summer job that could last eight weeks and mentorship, job coaching and help to get back into school after the program ends.

How to write a cover letter

by Amy Richardson 13/03/2018 0 comments

A cover letter is like your resume’s sidekick – while it isn’t the main star of the show, it’s there to provide backup when needed. The resume is to tell your professional story – your education, job experience and skills. It usually tends to be a bit of a dry read (sorry, resume). However, a cover letter is there to show your personality. It’s allows you to show your own voice and colour so you have the opportunity to stand out.

Accompanying your resume, our cover letter should be a well-written letter addressed to the hiring manager covering these areas:

  1. Your contact information

Make it clear who the cover letter is coming from. Include your first and last name, complete address, phone number and email address.

  1. The date

It might not seem like an important addition, but the date is a way to validate the day you submitted your application to ensure it is within the job opening period. The date should be the true date you submitted the application.

  1. The hiring manager’s contact information

It’s important to address the letter to the right person. Include the full name, job title or position, company name, company address, and the contact’s phone number and email address. If you don’t have this information or don’t know who you’re sending your application to, you can replace the name with “Hiring Manager.”

  1. Salutation

Begin your cover letter by a salutation. If you know the name, start with “Dear Miss/Mrs./Ms./Mr./Dr. Last Name.” If you aren’t sure of the gender, you can use the full name. However, if you don’t know the name, simply use “Dear Hiring Manager.” That salutation is better than the generic alternative of “To Whom It May Concern.”

  1. Introduction

Now it’s time to get to what you’ve applied for. Begin by stating the position you’re applying for. Include where you heard about the posting, especially if someone in the company suggested you apply. If this is the case, drop the name, but just make sure you’ve told that person you are using their name. The Hiring Manager may contact them at some point in the hiring process and it’s best they are prepared for that situation.

After you’ve introduced the job, give a brief overview of the highlights of your resume – it could be your skills, experience or education – anything that would interest the hiring manager. Write persuasively so you get the interest of the person reading.

  1. Body

This is the golden nugget of the cover letter. It is here that you let your own voice shine through. In a few paragraphs, explain why you are interested in the job, how you’d be a good fit and why you want to work for the company. Show, in words, your personality, work ethic, professional skills – anything you deem appropriate for the job in question. Really try to pique the interest of the reader by stating specific scenarios and examples that may be relevant to the position.

Here’s a helpful tip: go back to the job posting and reuse the terminology and phrasing the posting uses – this will prove that a) you’ve read the job description and b) you are qualified for the job.

  1. Conclusion

Wrap up the letter with a nice concluding summary of you. Don’t repeat yourself, but find a new way to say how great you are and why you want the position. Include your interest and willingness for an interview, either in-person, by phone or video conference. Depending on the hiring process (if a timeline of steps has been included or not), you should also state that you will follow-up and when you will do that (give at least two to five business days). Don’t forget to also thank the person for their consideration and time in reviewing your application.

  1. Signature

Last but not least, include a signature. After you thank the hiring manager, use “Sincerely,” “Yours truly,” or some other complimentary close before your name. If possible, you should include your handwritten signature (tip: you can scan your handwritten signature to your computer and convert to a jpg!). Then, type your full name.

Follow these tips and you’ll have a stellar cover letter for your next job! Don’t forget to customize the information for each job you apply to.
