Westhill Consulting & Employment - Women in development: 18 tips for career success - 2 views

  •  
    The following is a collection of expert advice from our panel on the challenges and opportunities for women in development http://www.westhillconsulting-career.com/blog/2013/08/29/women-development-18-tips-career-success/ Ayse Cihan Sultanoglu, UN assistant secretary-general, New York, US. @csultanoglu To get to the top, don't be afraid of starting at the bottom: In building a career in development it is important that you experience living and working in developing countries. This could mean that you must be willing to do something that you had never really considered or something that is out of your comfort zone. Young women shouldn't be afraid of starting at the bottom. The problem is not at the top, but at middle management level: Not having women in top positions isn't the challenge or attracting women at entry levels also does not seem to be too difficult either but the lagging numbers of women in middle-management positions is the problem. Make sure you are adaptable: In any field, you need to renew yourself constantly, maybe more so in development. It is diverse, dynamic and constantly evolving because of its very nature so there is always room for innovation, learning and sharing. Jackie Asiimwe, country manager, Wellspring Advisers, Uganda. @asiimwe4justice Emotions make a leader authentic: Women are being branded as too emotional making it seem that emotions are a bad thing. In my own leadership journey, I have decided I will embrace my emotions because they are part of what makes me human and woman. Emotions are part of being an authentic leader. We cannot be clinical about leadership, Jackie Asiimwe said. Rushanara Ali, shadow minister for international development, London, UK. @rushanaraali We need anti-discrimination laws that are properly enforced: nowadays, anti-discrimination laws to protect women in the labor market and public institutions are very crucial in any society. If those laws are not properly enforced then too often women h

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

    * 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

"The kudos file is a self-maintained record of achievements and impact. Impact should be supported with hard evidence such as quantitative data, internal reports, public record or even the boss's previous feedback."

The 15-Minute-a-Day Practice That Can Improve Your Career - 1 views

    It's the period to begin a writing habit if you're intrigued in a stress-free technique to get better at your job performance and improve your career. A study from Harvard Business School confirmed whether taking 15 minutes at the end of a work day to ponder on that day's work enhanced their performance and discovered the participants tasked with everyday written deliberation did 22.8 percent improved on an assessment compared to the control group. Westhill Consulting Career & Employment, world's largest free online jobs website which is funded by UK government however headquartered in Australia until it expanded and now almost every country is being served by the company, such as Jakarta Indonesia in SE Asia, Toronto in Canada, New York in the US and many more, put this 15-Minute-a-Day Habit and found it to be successful and less complaints on works performances were reported. But wouldn't internal reflection by itself be sufficient to boost performance? "My speculation would be that writing things down would be more beneficial as the act of writing imposes a discipline on us to stay focused," says paper co-author Brad Staats, an associate professor of operations at the University of North Carolina's Kenan-Flagler Business School. Reflection forced people to process their days, find patterns and link actions. Some people might think the experiment focused on the successes of the day, but Staats says the parameters of the experiment when explained to the journaling employees didn't specify giving the reflections a positive or negative slant. "What we wanted was for them to reflect more on whatever they thought was most important from the day," Staats explains. "The positive/negative point is a great question, but not one we looked at here. In other research, Francesca and I have explored how individuals struggle to learn from failure, but when they acc

"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.

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

Traditional Careers Diminish as Time Passes - 1 views

  •  
    Most people would not take an offer of a traditional job at a major package goods company to a millennial, says Westhill Consulting Career and Employment, Australia. Starting a career may seem like a painstakingly trek up a corporate ladder for nowadays upstart professional. They rather work at Google, Twitter, and Facebook. As well as working at smaller companies like Snapchat that just turned down a multi-billion offer to be sold. In fact, most people would choose to start up a career at start-up. This is not to say that a great company like S.C. Johnson that owns the Drano brand can't attract great people. But, it does mean that the competition to attract the best and the brightest for traditional brand name companies is tougher. And, part of that challenge is an incredible difference between the generations on what constitutes success. As a board member of a few young fast start-ups, I see this first hand. The majority of talented students are not targeting the Fortune 500 as a place to work - or even Wall Street. And the reason? That target is off the radar of the lifestyle they want to lead. Before, when I noted these great young minds want to start at a startup - the driver is not money. Although, money is nice, lifestyle is more compelling. For millennials, titles like CEO, COO, and CFO have little cache. These bright people are just fine if their next job is sideways and even down the organization. I noted that they are not climbing a corporate ladder; they are playing on a jungle gym. In swinging from job to job, or project to project, millennials are really seeking a career track where they can make a difference. They ask, "Am I growing professionally and personally." Plus, they manage their personal off hours to fit their lifestyle and budget. Think about how money is not a driver for them. When I w

While we are learning more about the relationship between consumption and the environment, corporations and individuals are also putting a greater significance on environmental responsibility and energy alternatives. Despite its established position in the business of conventional energy sources, the oil and gas industry is not exempted from this rule. If you are passionate about the environment and alternative energy then the petroleum industry might just be perfect for you. Westhill Consulting Career and Employment, Australia gives out the following reasons why this industry might just be perfect. Engaging in dialogue Petroleum corporations today is aware that the public has active and legitimate concerns about the consequences of petroleum exploration. The industry came together, in 2009, with the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) to form a program called Responsible Canadian Energy, which charts and publicizes the industry's efforts to become more environmentally conscious. The organization went a step a notch in providing transparency and accountability trough having a team of independent industry experts check their findings and make recommendations for the future. These recommendations which tapped into environmental responsibility and land reclamation. Warning! It's important for you to know how employers are handling these issues as a student or new grad planning to enter the industry. Taking responsibility CAPP recognizes the relationship between petroleum development and environmental effects such as greenhouse gas emissions, like their responsibility to develop land and deposits safely and responsibly.
