Resume fails - Westhill Consulting Employment & Career Builder - 1 views

  •  
    Many people make at least one or two of these. Here resume fails, which are detailed further by Westhill Consulting Career and Employment, Australia. Padding: Better known as “lying.” Deceit is not ever a good idea. It’s not worth the humiliation and possible problem if you get caught. Things people usually lie about take in degrees, and previous titles and salary. Tell the truth or it’s a fraud. If you say you were a teacher in Jakarta, Indonesia when in fact you weren’t, you are making a big mistake. They have ways to confirm this. Zero keywords: Given that many companies use resume screening software, it’s a warning, if you don’t use the right keywords, beset precisely to the job in the question, it’s very probable that your resume will certainly not make it past the electronic gatekeeper to be seen by human eyes. Review the job description cautiously and ensure to take account of the proper keywords. Clichés: Don’t refer to yourself as “driven” or “innovative.” Likewise on the list of stereotyped terms are “expert,” “strategic,” and “organizational.” We all need a good thesaurus. Fortunately there are sites and apps for that. “Pore grammar:” What they mean is “typos” and the samples they give consist of “Dear Sir or Madman” and “Have a keen eye for detail.” Bad grammar and spelling is a detached subject and are not on the list, although they should be, since they are an enormous turnoff for employers. Actually, they are the first thing most say will get your resume thrown. They are split for the reason that a typo is

Tips for Embracing Thorns on Your Journey to Success - 1 views

  •  
    * Different is GOOD. Never retreat from new and different experiences, opportunities, and challenges. It is not bad if you can learn something from it. Adding the unique value preposition, yes it is you; it is definitely not a mistake. Being different is a plus in most every instance - this is what true diversity is all about. * Difficulty yields GROWTH. There will be no growth if you won't stretch yourself, physically, emotionally and mentally. Your nearest potential will not be realized unless you try. But remember that this doesn't mean that we must be stressed all the time because it is not healthy. We all need downtime to recover and rejuvenate. Never retreat and avoid something just because it is hard. Just go with it, step forward and eventually you'll figure out a way through it. * Failing is LEARNING. Don't take Failing all negatively, remember that some of your best experiences and development will come from. You will learn a lot from Failing, most of the learning in life is learned from it. And keep in mind that you are not a Failure just because you Failed. It will allow you to figure out the difference between being the best and being your best. * LEAN ON others. Learn to have a good relationship with other people, life is about the relationships you create, develop, and grow. Remember the saying no man is an island; it is because your journey is not one that you must go alone. You will grow much from the support of others and will have opportunities to support others yourself. Many of life's greatest joys come from this. People who make you better and don't tear you down are people you need in you life. * IT IS all about YOU (not them). There will always be people who will put you down and you will run to them almost often. They will call you out in a negative light and these may come for whatever reason, and sometimes that reason won't be evident. They will work to derail you. Don't worry about them and th

Why Candidates Fail to Make an Impression in Interviews - 1 views

  •  
    Poor preparation: Candidates who come to an interview understanding insufficiently about the company, the industry and maybe the role are in a poor situation to match with well-prepared professionals who will devote the compressed interview time exactly putting themselves for the employer's precise requirements. Employers intend to know you are curious, energetic, resourceful and inspired and what clearer verification of that than coming completely prepared and with sharp understandings into the employer and their brand/positioning/problems/news etc. If you have prepared right you will be able to hit the ground running in the interview with answers that show how you are exceptionally placed to increase value from the get-go given the company's specific culture (maybe you are from outside the country, Indonesian from Jakarta or American from the USA), positioning, objectives, circumstances and situation. Showing a negative attitude: Many polls conducted by Westhill Consulting Career and Employment, Australia have uncovered that attitude takes a vital share in defining character and persuading the employment decision. Warning indications of bad attitudes that are positive to reject by a possible employer involve badmouthing former bosses, companies and colleagues; self-justifying or foully equivocal answers to key interview questions; or openly aggressive answers, posture and demeanor. Keep in mind people hire experienced people they consider they will actually like working with and who will extend a good optimistic atmosphere inside the organization and to exterior clients and stakeholders. Employers are highly aware that negative attitudes are very spreadable and are very different from being interested to applicants with less than an exemplary attitude regarding work, life and themselves. Absence of enthusiasm in the company: Some things can estrange an employer more than an applicant

Why a Career Plan Can Fail - 2 views

  •  
    Some of us are already oriented what we would be in the future. I, for one, had been planning my career path ever since I was young.  When the time came for me to enter college, there are so many choices. When I graduated, greater challenge showed itself when I can't seem to find the right field to enter and the once simple and clear career plan seemed too far-fetched.
    Nevertheless, a lot of us still set something to have a goal for ourselves. Having a career plan permits us to become clear in what path we want to take.
    According to Westhill Consulting and Employment recent surveys, a lot of employees who had planned a career path when young are not able to reach it. They have been swayed by so many factors and priorities change.
    Same goes for young minds who think they have a clear path, straight with the end line ahead of them. However, change, development and need are always changing. There may be other paths which are more enticing than the straight one. To those who followed their paths and continued without wavering, they sometimes find the end of the line less satisfying than it should be. When you have reached the end, what then? Where do you go next?
    A review with some top entrepreneurs in Jakarta, Indonesia says that the real world may not be the one we really thought it would be. What we are taught may no longer be there anymore. While setting your career, you should also see the world in the next five or ten years and base your decision through that.
    Well, before you complain of destroying your dreams, let's deal with the exceptions first.  If you want to work in a field that is fairly predictable - say nursing or teaching-then plan away.  The courses you need to take to gain an entry position are well known and so is the career path and the things you need to do to advance. So, simply fi

Obama Wants Attention On Job Creation, Not Healthcare Woes - 1 views

  •  
    On November 8, Friday, President Barack Obama tries to shift the national conversation to economic growth from anger over insurance policy cancellations under his signature healthcare law, as he visits the Port of New Orleans. The next day after Obama said in a nationally televised interview he was sorry some Americans were dropped by their health plans because of changes mandated by the Affordable Care Act, he will tour a busy cargo and cruise ship port, the White House said. Again, he will convey the message that the United States should spend more on its roads, bridges and ports as a way to create jobs and strengthen U.S. firms through increased trade. Said on Friday, he will speak after the government that employers added 204,000 jobs in October despite a 16-day government shutdown, although the jobless rate ticked up to 7.3 percent. The White House expected that there would have been 120,000 additional jobs created in the month if not for the shuttering of government offices regardless of the surprisingly strong employment report. The administration has repeatedly said that the economy would be growing more rapidly and job growth would be more robust without the shutdown, prompted by Republican efforts to defund or delay the healthcare law, known as Obamacare. Yet, the jobs report suggested the impact of the shutdown on the economy was slighter than many had thought. The Mississippi River port will provide Obama an appropriate setting to discuss about his proposal to spend $50 billion to repair and upgrade the nation's infrastructure and efforts to expand trade. The president "believes that exports are central to our national economy and has made increasing exports a major focus for his administration," the White House said in a statement. However, because of lingering questions about Obamacare, Obama's efforts to press Congress for more spending to strengthen economic growth will be overshadowed.

"To find a career later that you enjoy, be certain to try out as many different careers as you can," says Carole Stovall, president and CEO of SLSGlobal. Look for summer jobs, after school work, summer programs and internships. Todd Cherches of BigBlueGumball agrees. "Don't be afraid to try or to fail. That's what these years are meant for. Don't feel that any job is beneath you, because it's not. At this stage of your life, everything is a learning experience." 20's Today is the period to catch a job in the area where you'd love to engage in a career. "There are many things to consider, but the most important issues is to consider a job that you actually like, whether it is in your major or not," Stovall says. It's correspondingly a upright plan to begin forming your individuality. "Stop comparing yourself to your friends, especially the ones you went to college with," says Christine Sirois, a freelance journalist in her 20's. "Once you're in the job market, it's not a level playing field and comparing yourself to your friends is a recipe for feeling inadequate and unhappy. Instead, set goals and work at your own pace to achieve them." 30's At this period, you're reaching your pace, however you must continue being adaptable in an event something fresh and fascinating comes up, Cherches says.

How to Get Away From Procrastination - 1 views

  •  
    Procrastination is one of the worst attitudes in a workplace, yet, it is also a master for many of us. Admittedly so, we experience procrastination every now and then in our lives. Since a task has no deadline, nor do we have any timetable, we tend to procrastinate. We may be able to get away with it once or twice but it can cause a lot of problems if it becomes a habit. Beating procrastination habits is hard. According to Westhill Consulting and Employment, one of the longest running career development and personality growth councilor based in Australia, almost 80% of employees suffer from procrastination habits. In many reviews, experts are already considering it as an underlying psychological disorder. To defeat this kind of attitude, the following are some of the tips that can be practiced: 1. Stop cramming Learn the art of pro-commitment. Some people works better under the pressure of cramming but most of them fail to present a best result. In college, we are oftentimes awed at our ability to pull something out of an all-nighter. It would be a positive way to put it but in truth, we just don't have any way out so we push ourselves to the limit despite sacrificing quality. Thinking of the end result other than the remaining time left would keep you on your feet. 2. Divide your Task and Set a Timetable Just like setting a timetable on the amount of time you should be showering, being conscious of duration of traffic (especially when you are in Jakarta, Indonesia and Tokyo, Japan) or keeping track of the number of steps you will be taking before you reach your office, Being detailed on what you have to do on what time would definitely help you keep track of your task. When you can't get away from cramming, setting a timetable can start fire from under your seat. Without knowing it, you are no longer procrastinating and have finished your task bef
