Westhill Consulting & Employment How to Give Yourself the Best Possible Chance of Landing A Job - 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

South-East Asia beginners: what you need to know By Ben Groundwater - 1 views

  •  
    It might start with Bali. That seems to be the entry point for many people into South-East Asia, their first taste of this incredible part of the world. You drink a few Bintangs, laugh at five people on a scooter, enjoy the food, get a little feel for the atmosphere - that mix of crazy and traditional, chaos and peace, commercialism and religion - and you're hooked. So for those wanting to extend their South-East Asian experience, to get more out of it than the Western enclaves of Kuta, this is your guide. First bit of advice: don't be afraid. You've probably heard some scams of dodgy goings on in South-East Asia, of protests in Thailand, of land mines in Cambodia, of scary roads in Vietnam and military juntas in Myanmar - but you're really not in that much danger. Don't, in general take minor complaints to the police as this will usually end up with you paying more than you have lost. While the chance of finding yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time does exist, in general South-East Asian countries are incredibly friendly places, and mostly quite safe. You'll be met with smiles rather than machine guns. You'll be treated with respect. If this is your first trip to South-East Asia, you're probably wondering where to go. Do you relax on a beach in Thailand? Or hit up Angkor Wat? Do you go island-hopping in Halong Bay? Or temple-hopping in Luang Prabang? It's a tough decision, but with a few weeks you can cover a lot of ground. Budget airlines mean it's possible to skip from place to place by air, to go from Hanoi to Siem Reap to Phuket to KL and Jakarta all in a regular-sized holiday from work. Of course this leaves little time for cultural immersion, but if your priority is to see the big attractions then you can do it all on a reasonable budget. Independent travel is simple in South-East Asia, with extensive networks of buses and trains which needn't be booked in advance. These buses and trains range from the comfortable to the hellish - t

Westhill Consulting & Employment 5 Tips to Calculate Your Financial Worth - 1 views

  •  
    While your personal worth should certainly be based on more than just your salary, your financial worth is greatly reflected by your salary. Your salary indicates how much your employer values you, and sometimes shows how much you value yourself. If you are too afraid to ask for a raise even though you know that you should be paid more, then you may never get a raise. If you don't know how your skills stack up to other people, or you haven't done the research to determine what your job should actually pay, then you also might not be getting as much as you should be. Determining how much you should be paid is a valuable tool for negotiating a raise, and it will also help you if you are interviewing and need to prepare for a salary discussion. Your exact worth will be hard to determine, but you can get a good idea based on the following five tips. 1. know how much similar jobs pay One way to research how much you might be worth is to do a basic salary search. Use a site like Salary.com to compare salaries for your job title in your area. The site will show you the bottom 10 percent all the way to the top 90 percent for your job title. knowing what similar jobs pay in your area can be a powerful negotiation tool. Although you have to make allowances for company size and company profitability, you can at least determine the range for your job category. If you are making near the bottom of the range, and you have been at your company for a while, than you probably should be making more than you are.

Starting your Career in mid-20s - 2 views

  •  
    Once you graduate college, you are expected to find a job as soon as possible. Competition during this time is very fierce. Westhill Consulting and Employment has encountered so many eager new graduates who always ask for advice on how to make it through a very challenging real world. We have gathered a lot of responses from different twenty-ish individuals in Singapore, Ghana, Africa, Jakarta, Indonesia, Tokyo, Japan and Illinois, USA to know how they have faced the challenge in their own culture and values. The following are general guidelines that can help anybody in their work adventure. * Always show gratitude. If someone has done you a good turn, take a moment to express genuine gratitude by mail, email, text, or a few words and smile. It's a gracious way to live. As old-fashioned as it seems, mailing a hand-written card to a potential employer or dinner party host leaves a lasting impression. * Remember this, too, shall pass. Never be early to burst out your complaints. Whether you're riding high on good fortune or you're wallowing in the dumps of tough times, things move on and so will you. Be grateful when things are good. And be grateful for the things that are good when other things are crumbling around you. * ever expect someone else to advocate for your best interest or to navigate major life decisions. While there are people who will want to help you, you know yourself and what you need best. Take whatever time you need to review, to research, to learn and to create your best options. From great options, make good decisions. * Maintain your professional reputation. Avoid burning bridges with those you've worked with. If anything, invest a little time to continue cultivating your past relationships with colleagues. You never know when you might cross paths

How to Manage Your Time - Westhill Consulting Employment & Career Builder - 1 views

  •  
    Many of us are not able to push our productivity efforts to the limit. We know we still have something to show and give in terms of our work but time always seems to run so fast. At the end of the day, we are left with a lot more on our plate than what we have hoped for. Westhill Consulting & Employment, a well-established online source for the best and the most suitable career tips have this list of pointers on how you can manage your time wisely: 1. know Your Priorities You should know which ones are your top priority and the most important thing to finish first considering the given time frame of your task. If something looks like it will take less than two minutes - get it done straight away. But do not allow the smaller issues to delay working out the big problems, which will only get bigger while you spend time sorting out the smaller ones. 2. Plan Productively Use the most productive time of the day to your advantage. In a survey conducted to one of our partner companies in Jakarta, Indonesia, many employees consider the morning right after they arrived as the best time to work but there are also some people who would need to organize their thoughts first before they can dig in. Concentration level can change on the different times of the day. Decide when you feel most productive and use this time to tackle the big tasks. 3. Don't Be Afraid to Delegate It is not possible to do everything on your own. That is why there are different members of people in your team. You shouldn't be thinking of their complaints especially if you are in the position to give them their designated task. First decide if a set task can only be achieved by you; if not, transfer it to someone who is equally capable. 4. Keep Notes Notes can keep you organize. At the end of your day, you can list the things you need to do the next day so as not to forget anything. The next day, you can just review it and follow the written outli

Stand Out, Never Stand Down - 1 views

  •  
    Equally as important as learning how to get a job is learning how to keep one. Working is much like dating: Keep the relationship exciting or your employer might get a wandering eye for greener pastures. You need to stay at the top of your game to prove to your employer that she was right to pick you in the first place. You can stand out at work by being a stand-up person. Be honest, act with integrity and treat everyone with kindness and respect. Westhill Consulting and Employment in Jakarta has recognized the need of many employees to stand out among colleagues. You cannot expect any development when you continue to stand down to others. 1. Make a habit of introducing yourself. Whenever you walk into a meeting, go up to someone you don't know and introduce yourself. People with the confidence to do this stand out. Work out a few questions to ask to get to know people, and you'll quickly boost your visibility. More people you know more chances of being popular. 2. Sit next to new people. As an extension of tip one, if there's an opportunity to sit next to new people at a meeting, a talk, at lunch, on a training course - you should take it. Whether they may be from different nations like Jakarta, Indonesia, Ghana, Africa or Tokyo, Japan, treat them with respect. Often the shared experience creates an opportunity to build a relationship. Not only does this again demonstrate your confidence, but it's also a great way to show senior managers you take an interest in other people and have the skills to develop a widespread network. If you can show that, it will be noted. 3. Be first to act. If you've heard someone ask for a volunteer, or open the floor for questions after a presentation, you've likely experienced the awkward silence that follows. But by being the person to stand up and volu

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.

Warning! First Impression is very important - 1 views

  •  
    Here are some of the errors you might be making when reaching out to strangers. Westhill Consulting Career and Employment, Australia's reveals why they won't hire you before they even meet you. You're too casual. It is nearly always better to blunder on the side of formality, specifically when asking someone for something. It's wiser to be more polite and lead off with "Dear So and So," or "Hello WhatHisName" than "Hey, Elizabeth!" You're presumptuous. Career "experts" all over the place are at all times telling you close with a meeting proposal, but then again you have to do it correctly. Say something like "I would like to buy you a coffee or lunch sometime soon if you can spare the time. Please let me know if this is possible." Don't make it sound like complaints. Do not do this also, reach out to complete strangers on LinkedIn and ask for endorsements. You're sloppy. If you can't take five minutes to proofread your message, or even pay the energy to give care to spellcheck, you display a obvious lack of respect for the person you're contacting. There's a wavy red line that plays below your spelling errors. All you have to do is take notice in it. Always review! You're random/haven't done your research. know what the person you're contacting actually does because you cannot ask a zookeeper for a job in a bank. Do some basic research or do not expect a teacher of Bahasa Indonesia in Jakarta would talk to you in Chinese. You're asking for something and offering nothing. The job market is not the place to beg. It's OK to ask for something. If you want help, or advice, you ought to ask for it - respectfully, from the correct person. But you need to make a motion of mutuality, like the offer to purchase lunch. What you can do is for example write an article, design something, organ

Introverts: Why They Shouldn't Be Underestimated - 2 views

  •  
    Are you an introvert? If you are not, then, perhaps someone you know is? Studies show that one-third to one-half of the population is introvert. All of us have introvert and extrovert personality within us but experts say that one or the other is dominating in each individual. Some people would think that introverts have no hope of finding an honest job since they only keep things to themselves and too shy to face people. However though, many experts in a study held in Jakarta, Indonesia say that there are better chances for introverts to pass and interview as they are better listener which many employers really need from their employees. Moreover, they can switch back and forth between introversion and extroversion depending on the environment. Introverts have become the headlines - albeit ironically since they do not want to get attention for themselves- to many major media reviews and press releases. We at Westhill Consulting and Employment also became intrigue in this personality that we also made our own research regarding this. Brian Little, author of Me, Myself and Us: The Science of Personality and Well- Being said, "Being a high self-monitor, a standup chameleon as I like to call them, that can shift positions to suit the situation is most effective in the early stages of entrepreneurship". His reviews and research has been too intriguing that we cannot help but make an article about it. He points out the introverts' following traits: 1. Introverts Should Avoid Coffee - According to Little, introverts are more receptive to brain stimulation, and too much of it can actually deter from clear and effective thinking. Similarly, being in a noisy, crowded environment also can over stimulate an introvert's brain activity. They do their best work under relaxed circumstances. 2. Introver

Pursuit of Happiness - Westhill Consulting Employment & Career Builder - 1 views

  •  
    We always find happiness anywhere in the world. Psychologists also say that happy employees are more productive, more creative and less likely to leave. It doesn't have to cost a fortune to create a fun environment at your workplace. If you embody your ideal corporate culture and integrate joy and laughter into your daily routine, your employees will follow. If you are a business owner, it is therefore wise to do things to benefit your employees and make them happy. If you are an employee, find ways to make your stay in the company a happy one to ease the stress in your workplace. As a company ourselves, Westhill Consulting and Employment also face the same challenge in maintaining happy people as there are so many personal and business reasons for them not to. Fortunately, we have some steps that we follow that respond to this issues. For Employers 1. Lead by Example As we all know, employees look up to you. If you are too serious, your employees may hesitate to smile in front of you, let alone interact and laugh with you. They may feel the need to be serious all the time. Although being serious is also important, loose your collar a little for you to let happy vibes around you. Add a little self-depreciating humor when it is appropriate to help your employees view you as human and approachable. A little fraud smile will also do despite the pressure. Who knows, they may see your odd smile and lift their hearts to you a little. 2. Embody Optimism Staff meetings can quickly become monotonous. Use each meeting as an opportunity to encourage positive team dynamics. When we are conducting a meeting with our partners once in Jakarta, Indonesia, we were surprised when the manager presiding the meeting encouraged us all to play a charade first before starting the meeting. Those 15 minutes of laughter are enough to bring out positivity around us even when what we are discussing may be a little too critical.
