Your resume gives you the opportunity to introduce yourself to a prospective employer. It is imperative that you make a good first impression. There are three different formats. Which is best for you? Find out how to choose the one that is most suitable based on your employment history and job search needs.
Like most people, you might have some questions about the “right” way to do a resume. Where should you put your educational background? What should you do about the job you only held for a couple of months? What if the employer wants a salary history? See this list of FAQs for answers to these and other questions.
Job Interview basics
The interview is probably part of the job search process that makes people the most anxious. That could be because any control you had up to this point is no longer in your hands. The interviewer decides when to begin and end the interview, what questions to ask, and whether you will advance in the process. The better prepared you are, the more in control you will feel. Learn about the different types of interviews you may face, what you should do before and during the interview, how to deal with tricky questions and how to follow up afterwards.
Before you dress up
Not everyone has the best judgment when it comes to dressing for job interviews. Some people dress up too much, and some go much too casual. Some look more “college campus” than “corporate.” While appearance certainly isn’t everything, how you look does matter. Here are some questions you should ask yourself before you decide what to wear to your interview.
Behavioural Interview: show what you know
At some point, you may find yourself in an interview that seems very different from the ones you are used to. Instead of an employer simply asking questions about your employment background, he or she will ask questions about how you handled certain situations in the past. This is called a behavioural interview. Read more about this type of job interview, find out how to prepare for one and see a list of the possible questions the interviewer may ask you.
How to write a thank you note
Sending a thank you note after a job interview doesn’t merely demonstrate that you have good manners, although it’s good to do it for that reason alone. It gives you the opportunity to bring up something you forgot to or didn’t have a chance to, say. Learn how to compose a simple thank you note.
Before you accept the offer
You may think all is fine and dandy once you’ve received a job offer, but your work is hardly done. Now you have to decide whether to accept the offer and it’s not all about money. There are things to consider in addition to compensation. Find out what they are.
You are entitled to feel fulfilled by your job, to wake up and go to work, to feel inspired and enabled to inspire others. After the job is done, when returning home, you still want to be inspired with the awareness and certainty that you have contributed to your co-workers, clients, and the world. This is not only a joyful state for the lucky ones; once you know why you do what you do, you will sparkle and feel energised by knowing you are the lucky one.
