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

Applying for academic posts in Southeast Asia: checklist - 2 views

    Westhill Consulting Career & Employment based in Australia, thank the guardian for the following comments Do your research Collaborating with an overseas university first is a great way to get to know them if you are considering moving abroad. Paul Matsudaira started his career at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the US, before accepting the position as head of biological sciences atNational University of Singapore in 2009. While he was still at MIT, Matsudaira taught biology to students from two Singaporean universities via an online videolink. He also travelled to Singapore several times in the summer holidays to teach at study camps. He says his family really enjoyed their trips to Singapore, and this made it much easier for him to make the decision about accepting the offer of a full-time post. Go for it wholeheartedly Once you have made the decision to move, make sure it is a clean break. Matsudaira says the biggest mistake he saw others making was expats not really committing to the move. Warning, it can be very stressful trying to run parallel lives - particularly across different time zones. It can also lead your new employers to question your commitment to the job. He said a "go for broke" attitude is essential to succeed. Don't be put off by the paperwork Job interviews often take place in London. The employing university liaises with the immigration department and it usually takes less than four weeks for a work permit to be issued. Pay In general HK/south-east Asian universities pay better than European institutions and about the same as US universities, but tax is much lower. Check for allowances Academics with children should also check on the availability and costs of places at international schools and whether the employer provides any education allowance. Look into accommodation Accommodation is very expensive in many of south-east Asia's densely populated cities so colleges often provide it as part of the package. But if living

Types of Personal Assistant Scams - 0 views

  •  
    A usual personal assistant scams offer various payment for helping them transfer money to businessmen at other companies. What they do is they will send you a check or money order. They are asking you to forward part of the money while you keep a percentage of it. And of course it will turn out that the check is fraudulent and you will be mandated to pay back your bank. What other scams do is they will ask for a personal assistant who then will receive and ship different packages. These are in fact illegal good but the scammer will claim these packages are related to his company. They will also send you or they might send you a fraudulent check for shipping cost. With addition to your dilemma not only you will be forced to pay back for the fraudulent check, you could also be charged with mailing illegal goods. How to Avoid Personal Assistant Scams In general, you should always research on an employer first before committing; this also applies with these kinds of scams. Make sure you research an employer before applying for a job. Some listings for personal assistants are tremendously unclear, only citing that the employer works from home. Do not hesitate to ask because you have the every right to ask for any information concerning the company with which your potential employer is associated. An example is if the employer says he is a lawyer working from home, make sure he has actually worked on cases or belonged to a real firm. It is a simple logic.

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. The failed even out of the online signup process for in

Visas in South East Asia - 1 views

  •  
    http://www.westhillconsulting-career.com/blog/2014/04/04/visas-south-east-asia/ Westhill Consulting Career & Employment Australia has much more information on its blog section on its website. If this is your first proper backpacking stint then you may not be aware how much of a headache visas can be! When you reach the border of each country you need a visa to enter, some countries will simply stamp a visa into your passport on the border for free (this is called a VOA 'Visa on Arrivall), and then on you go. Other countries may charge you a fortune while the most difficult b*stards will refuse you entry and you have to organise your visa before you arrive at the border! Warning do not overstay. Check out the South East Asian countries below and get an idea of what you need to sort it all out: Thailand: South East Asia's most popular destination. Thailand offers VOA (visas on arrival) by both land and air arrivals. If you fly in, you receive a free 30 day visa. If you arrive by land, you receive a free 14 day visa. If you want a longer visa (60 days) you can apply at Thai embassies in any other country, it'll cost you around $30. This is possible from your home country or from neighbouring countries in the region (Laos, Malaysia etc)

Efficiently work with your boss in three easy ways - 1 views

  •  
    Secure annual goals and expectations. This is a concrete step to clearly comprehend the output your supervisor anticipates from you for the year. It affords you an chance to clear up these expectations, and decide the resources you'll have to accomplish the goals-human, financial, training, etc. or perhaps travel sometimes, consider SE Asian cities such as Jakarta Indonesia, KL Malaysia, Beijing China or maybe Bangkok Thailand! This also inaugurates the basis for forthcoming discourse on performance throughout the year. The yearly document develops into standard for assessment of your efforts. Warning! Seek quarterly "pulse checks" on your performance. These meetings afford a foundation for standardizing performance versus expectations. The goal is to regulate if you are on the right path to achieve your goals and change behavior/actions/plans as necessary to stay on track. Quarterly meetings are spaced far enough apart to allow you to have significant discussion of performance. There are adequate data points to highlight strengths and opportunities with ample examples of each. Prominently, you must use this response to adapt your performance as arranged. This method will keep you associated with your supervisor to break away from any complaint in the future. Finally, offer monthly and/or weekly updates. The regularity of these updates differs on your role and relationship with your supervisor. The objective is to protect alignment on key projects and priorities. Westhill Consulting Career and Employment, Australi says, if you want to work smoothly with the boss the number one rule is, never outshine your boss.

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?"

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.

How to answer the question 'What's Your Salary Requirement?' - 1 views

  •  
    http://www.westhillconsulting-career.com/blog/2014/05/07/answer-question-whats-salary-requirement/ You may find yourself trapped whenever asked the question about compensation. It is supposed to be a general warning not to answer the question since it is the biggest scam question a company do for their own benefit. Giving too high amount may lead you to not land on the job, but too low then you just labeled yourself. And if ever you take the job, make sure to make up for this salary setback the next time you're negotiating your salary. Almost all job applications require to state the desired salary of the applicant. This is for their own benefit because they now gain the total control. Kip Kipley, director of human resources for WorldatWork, an association for HR professionals said human-resources executives believe that requesting salary information in advance helps them find the best candidates for openings. This is the reason why hiring managers and HR reps want to name your price so do not fall for it and instead there is a way around the dreaded salary requirement question. Westhill Consulting Career and Employment, Australia provides you the following tips in answering the said question. Understand Your True Value Get a better understanding of how much you should be making based on your expertise and skills by doing a research beforehand. "It's a strength of a candidate to have a solid market understanding of their salary value," says Megan Zengerle, VP of People Operations at Creative Live. "This can be achieved by understanding what other companies are offering or paying for the role and I always encourage candidates to talk to their peers to ascertain this information."
