Juggling Multiple Job Offers - 2 views

  •  
    With many graduates walking out from school every year and entering corporate firms and agencies looking for a job, you are up for a big competition. This is one of the common problems of new graduates. It doesn't matter if you live in Ghana, Africa or Jakarta, Indonesia or Las Vegas, Nevada. The fact that many graduates are looking for a job is a big challenged.

    Another one, albeit not considered a problem but more an opportunity, is to receive more than one job offers. It can be pretty flattering but a little bit pressuring as well. What do you do? Which one would you take when both offer good benefits for you?

    Westhill Consulting and Employment has faced a lot of these questions before from new graduates who are having a hard time choosing among so many job offers. Well, first of all, you have to calm your nerves. Instead of throwing complaints on which one to choose, try to focus and review both sides. You have a choice to make and you'll be able to compare and contrast the jobs to determine which is the best fit.

    The following strategies will help you to make the best of this challenging and exciting situation.

    1. Express enthusiasm without saying "yes."
    Any time you receive an attractive offer, express your high level of excitement and appreciation for the offer. Clarify when the employer needs to know your decision. Resist the impulse to accept on the spot if you have other attractive options to consider.

    2. Gather all data.
    If you receive multiple offers within the same deadline period for acceptance, your task will simply be to decide which option is preferable. Make sure you have all the information necessary about both options to make a rational choice. If not, reach out to the employer and seek clarification about any lingering uncertainties regarding benefits, advancement, working conditions, job content, supervision or any other questions you may have.

How to cope up with losing your job - 1 views

  •  

    Allow yourself accept it and give a reason to get your life going, the first advice Westhill Consulting Career and Employment, Australia provide to people who lost their jobs. It doesn't matter how self-assured you are, losing a job always grounds you to doubt yourself. In general the two responses are to distrust yourself and your capability, or to guilt your situation or your people at your old company. Both are not worth doing. The best thing you can do is discover a credible purpose why this occurred and then truly believe it. It's the first step to moving on.

    Agree on two things to do. This should serve as a warning that it is you who will decide on your life at the end of the day. Telling yourself that you should try to discover what you want to do with your life now that you've lost your job is a cliché. The first thing you must do is to bring in the money you'll need to support yourself or your family. Next is what you truly want to do for a career. By unraveling the two, you can reason more plainly about your future in the short and long term. That way, you can keep your eye on preparing for the better job at the same time if you need to take a job for money that isn't perfect.

    Map your social graph. Odds are, your next chance will come from somewhere or someone you already know - so the most important thing you can do at this point is to create a "graph" of your social imprint online. Or maybe you luck is outside your country; why not try SE Asia, Jakarta Indonesia maybe or perhaps KL Malaysia?

    Recognize your influencers. Inside your social graph will be people who are in a position to have an uneven consequence on your having a new job. Conflicting to what you might ponder, these are not essential the individuals with the highest titles or the most fame. Every so often the person hiring or who knows the person hiring is the one working at a

Find a Job You Love - 3 views

    The first thing that you had to do is to identify exactly what you enjoy, what you probably need to do is do some research on your dream job

    According to Alan Watts, a respected philosopher, the best way to find what you should be doing with your life was to ask yourself this important question: "What would you do if money were no object?" What if you won the lottery and you could do whatever you wanted to do with your life? Sure, you'd want to relax for a while, but eventually you're going to get bored. So what would you do to make yourself really, truly happy?

    To avoid scams, plan several clear objectives and time scales. Be certain that you are moving forward every day to get closer to your goal. A big wall calendar will help you to out your through goals and achievements. This may take some time, but if you are willing to focus on the path you wanted to take, slowly but surely you will get there.

    Please note that while all great jobs out there are up for grabs, you have to do a reality check and make sure you are not delusional when pursuing your dream. There will be physical and other limitations that are out of your control. There could of course be very valid obstacles such as family situation or your finances; as a rule, however, there is always a solution that can be worked out over time. Westhill Consulting Career and Employment, Australia offers articles, tips and many more about career and employment.

    Do you ever wake up in the morning and ask yourself: "Am I in the right job?" "At the right company?" "On the right career path?" "Doing what I am supposed to be doing with my life?" If so, you are not alone.

    After almost a decade of research, Tempe, Ariz, based "purpose" firm Ignite reports that more than 95% of workers in the U.S. are in the wrong roles. In another study by the company, 1,916 randomly selected employees between the ages of 23 and 28 were asked if they were interested in changing jobs, and 1,571

7 Tips to Revamp Your Job Search for 2014 - 1 views

  •  
    http://www.westhillconsulting-career.com/blog/2014/03/10/7-tips-revamp-job-search-2014/
    Experts foresee the job market being more competitive than ever in 2014. With 10.9 million Americans unemployed, it is important to take a fresh look at your job search strategy. Now is the perfect time to develop an effective plan for success.

    How can you set yourself apart from the competition and position yourself for finding the best next step in your career?

    Here are seven tips to help you refresh and refocus your job search in 2014:

    1. Don't be a copycat candidate. Job searches are a very personal experience and one-size-fits-all strategies will not help you stand out among the competition. Even though a certain interview tactic or style was successful for one candidate doesn't mean it is the best strategy for you. Take into consideration your personal experiences, preferences and career goals and use them to position yourself as a unique candidate.

    2. Learn to look at job titles differently. Be open-minded about your preconceived notions of job titles. Roles in compliance, human resource, or administration, for example, are often perceived as being boring, career-limiting or otherwise undesirable. Such preconceptions, however, about the scope, strategic importance and long-term potential of these positions are not always true in today's market. In many cases I've seen, these jobs offer exceptional opportunity for influential and attractive long-term careers.

    3. First impressions are everywhere. With 92% of employers using social media in the hiring process, the content of your social profile forms an employer's first impression before you even sit down with for an interview.

    You should take special consideration to job-proof your social media profiles. For example, use a picture that represents you as a professional. Don't rely on privacy settings to keep your personal information safe. Your best bet is to assume everything will be seen by a potential emplo

    http://www.westhillconsulting-career.com/blog/2014/03/06/top-10-job-search-tips/
    Is your job search off to a slow start or getting stuck? Here are some quick time-saving job search tips that will help your hunt for a new job go smoothly.

    Be Prepared. Have a voice mail system in place and sign-up for a professional sounding email address. Consider getting a separate email account to use for your job search, so you can stay organized. Put your cell phone number on your resume so you can follow up in a timely manner. This job search toolkit will help you get everything you need set for your job search. Westhill Consulting & Employment Australia has some good tips for finding work in countries such as KL Malaysia, Jakarta Indonesia, Beijing China, Bangkok Thailand and many more.

    Be More Than Prepared. Always have an up-to-dateresume ready to send - even if you are not currently looking for work. You never know when an opportunity that is too good to pass up might come along. If you're not on LinkedIn yet, create a LinkedIn and start making connections who can help you job search.

    Don't Wait. If you are laid-off, file for unemployment benefits right away. You will most likely be able to file online or by phone. Waiting could delay your benefits check.

    Get Help. Utilize free or inexpensive services that provide career counseling and job search assistance such as college career offices, state Department of Labor offices or your local public library. Many libraries provide workshops, programs, classes, computers and printers you can use, and other resources to help you with your job search. Here's more on getting job search help at the library.

    Create Your Own Templates. Have copies of your resume and cover letter ready to edit. That way you can change the content to match the requirements of the job you're applying for, but, the contact information and your opening and closing paragraphs won't need to be changed. Microsoft Word users can download free templates for re

    http://westhillconsulting-career.quora.com/5-Tips-for-Utilizing-Social-Media-to-Get-Your-Dream-Job
    Social media is a part of every aspect of people's lives, and job hunting is no exception. Regardless of whether you currently have a job or not, there are ways you can utilize social media to help you get the job you really want. Here are 5 tips to help you leverage the power of social media in your favor when looking for a job.

    1. Become an Active LinkedIn User. As far as social networks rank, LinkedIn is the number one social network for professionals looking for jobs and for employers and recruiters looking for new talent. It isn't enough to just set up a profile. You want to be an active member of the LinkedIn community. Keep your profile updated and relevant. Provide as much information as you can in the profile and bio. Connect with other people in the position you want to be in and with companies you want to work for. Share status updates that are relevant and educated. Join groups of like-minded professionals.

    2. Become an online authority. Google is big on promoting websites and individuals that have established themselves as authorities within their field. Start up a website and post articles on a regular basis. Make sure your articles are relevant to your field, interesting, and reflect your level of expertise. Use your social networks to promote your website and build a following.

Westhill Consulting & Employment How to Give Yourself the Best Possible Chance of Landi... - 1 views

  •  
    Unless you have been living under a rock for the past 3 years, you'll know that job hunting is tough. In fact, in general the world of employment is rocky and is something that has affected people massively over the past couple of years. With people being made redundant, companies cutting back on new intake and less opportunities being made available, people are stuck. This has resulted in massive numbers of people applying for vacancies when they do become available - which means that the recruitment process is tougher than ever! Does this mean you need to be stuck in a job you hate or living a life on benefits? Not at all. It means you need to be inventive, organized and well informed on the ways of recruitment, to give yourself the best possible chance of being given any job that you apply for.

    Keep At It

    It can be disheartening when you're looking for a job and nothing seems to come up of. The first thing to remember is that climbing a career ladder is tough and you'll be up against some stiff competition. Companies can only see a limited number of people during their recruitment process so are often very picky when it comes to who gets to the interview stage. You need to bear this in mind and don't give up when it seems like you're just not getting anywhere at all.

    Instead make sure that you look in different places for job adverts and keep applying for any that peak your interest. Don't put all of your eggs in one basket and apply for one job at a time - get your application out there to as many companies as possible in order to give yourself the best possible chance of being successful.

    Think Outside The Box

    Sometimes you need to take the initiative and contact a company, even if they aren't advertising jobs. It's not recommended that you simply spam every company in your local area with letters, but if there is a company that you would love to work for - why not let them know? Companies generally like people that are passionate ab

    Have a habit of updating your database daily. Take note of all the employers you contact, the date you sent your résumé, any contact made, people you talk to, and notes about those contacts. Take note of opportunities as soon as you hear them; better keep a notepad at all times. Also a "to do" list can help so that you can organize your list of priorities and keep you focused on finding that perfect job.

Find opportunities, grab the job, be aggressive and apply to varieties of companies. The more jobs you apply to, the more likely you are of getting one.

    Update your social media profiles and career network pages. Notify your personal and professional network that you're on the market, refer to Westhill Consulting Career and Employment, Australia, and let them know what you're good at.

    You will never guess how powerful word of mouth is, so make sure that when you talk with people who might be able to help, let them know what kind of work you are interested in. About 70 percent of jobs are never put on a job board, meaning, they're filled via personal recommendations and connections so make use of these in every way you possibly can. This way you can also avoid scams since these are all from personal connections.

    Highlight something in your resume or interview that makes you stand out from the crowd of applicants, may it be a certification in your field or a volunteer job from your past employment. If the job situation really feels unwelcoming, consider changing your field to an area that is flourishing.
