This Can Irritate The Employer When Applying For A Job

This Can Irritate The Employer When Applying For A Job

Be aware of how you are perceived by employers in job search process. Here are the five most common mistakes.

When employers announcing a coveted position, they can quickly be inundated by applications and interested candidates for the job. Then it is very important that as a job applicant understands how one's own behavior may be perceived by the employer.

Alison Green has extensive experience as a personnel manager, and blogs Here she gives useful insight into five very common mistake many people make above potential employers.

1. Failing to ask questions:

Employers are looking to see that you are interested in the details of the position in question, now you want to work in, the structure of the enterprise and workplace culture. If you do not ask questions about this signals that you are not really particularly interested or that you have not thought carefully enough through what the position entails.

Good questions can be:

  • Why is this position available?
  • What are the biggest challenges you can expect to encounter in this position?
  • What will define a successful first year in this position?
  • If you think about the person who has been the best in this position before, what was it that made that he or she succeeded?
  • How is culture among the employees in your company?
  • How would you define your leadership style?
  • When do you expect to make a decision on who to hire?

2. To pursue the employer:

To show initiative and interest in the position is basically positive. But to call several times a week, spam e-mails, or follow up on an interview again and again after you have been notified that they will receive feedback next week, will actually could cost you opportunities to get the job.

3. To face up unannounced:

In most job advertisements it included specific instructions on how they want to apply for the position. If it is not stated a desire in person, then you should not do it. The employer is certainly plenty to do, and wants you to follow application instructions and respect their time. Some may have heard of someone who got a job after meeting up in person to show initiative, but this will matter rather be the exception than the rule.

4. To not be honest about their own weaknesses:

If you are unable to detach yourself from the setting whether to sell yourself, it will not be possible to speak honestly about your weak points, thus one must not consider whether these will be important for the job. It is common to be recommended to merge into properties which are really positive when asked about the weaknesses by themselves. This might be "I'm a perfectionist," "I work too much and too hard", etc. When you only mention such things could just as easily had a sign around her neck that says "I lying, and I do not believe in it yourself once".

Candidates who do not want or can get realistic feedback on weaknesses or what they can improve on shows lack of self-knowledge. The employer does not ask for weaknesses to rub it in your face, but rather because they are genuinely interested in finding the best candidate for the position. No one wants to hire someone in a position they are not suitable for, and no one does not want to have to give you fired after five months.

5. Being a bad loser:

If employers get feedback from applicants who did not get the job in question, it will in most cases be a thank you to at all be considered, a desire for constructive feedback on the interview, or a desire that one takes care of CV- one to a later date. Some however, responds by sending an angry email or a phone call after which it will express anger or resentment for not having given the position. Not only does this naive, immature and rude, it also destroys any possibility to be considered by the same employer at a later date.

These Are Mistakes That Can Sabotage Your Career

These Are Mistakes That Can Sabotage Your Career

If you're not where you want to be in your career, you may do something wrong. Experts point out the common mistakes and help you resolve them.

If you are at a standstill or do not climb as quickly as you had hoped in his career, you might make some small but crucial mistakes that can sabotage your career.

A number of experts have collaborated with to identify six of the most common mistakes you can make, and has advice on how to change the situation:

1: You get not indispensable:

One of the biggest mistakes people make in their careers is not to make himself indispensable, says career expert Barry Maher. Find a task that the boss hates to do and offer to take over the task for him or her. You can tell your boss that you want to do it to gain experience and to continue your career development, but it is only part of the truth. Thus, it will lose you mean boss must go back to doing something he or she hates, and will therefore fight to keep you as if you were the company's most valuable employees, he explains further.

2: You are not your network:

Caroline Ceniza-Levine, career expert and one of the founders of career coaching firm SixFigureStart, said that a common mistake is to engage in networking only when it is of immediate value. By doing this you can be perceived as selfish and opportunistic, and may lead to important contacts exclude you from the circle.

Many people think of networking as something you do when you're looking for a job or otherwise trying to get something. When they get a job stops all networking up. This is a mistake, because the best network can get when you do not need anything. That's when you can establish real relationships with people, and really learn something about how to help others. The best networks are mutually beneficial, explains Cenzia-Levine.

3: Failing to make themselves attractive on the job:

When one undertakes a career path, one can believe that the knowledge acquired at work is enough to remain valid in the labor market, but it is not always true. Find other ways to continue training and to sharpen your skills so that you have an advantage next time you are looking for a job.

If your company offers to pay for courses or training, use the opportunity to improve your CV, says career coach and author Cheryl E. Palmer.

You can consider getting a certification in your field of research, since certification has become very common in many industries. If you do not yet have an advanced degree, you may consider using tuition reimbursement to get a degree that makes you more attractive in the labor market.

4: Being too humble:

If you are someone who puts you down and say, "This is probably a stupid idea, but ..." Or belittle your contribution in the workplace: "I did not so much, it was Paul who did most of the work." Man do not appear to be pompous, but if you do not make your accomplishments known, can be passed over in promotions or excluded from future projects. Man always hope that a boss will recognize hard work, but do not rely on it.

It is up to the employees to communicate their achievements and successes, and to show how they contribute to the success of the team, department and organization, says coach, speaker and founder of Wilkerson Consulting Group, Kim Wilkerson.

5: You do not monitor achievements:

Morgan Norman, director of performance management company Work Simple, says that one of the biggest mistakes employees make is not keeping track of all your achievements from day one.

Evidence of victories and good results in their career can secure a salary bump, a promotion and also help them to build their professional brand, he explains.

Norman proposes to keep track of achievements through an online portfolio of work. The portfolio may bring up other things as well, such as targets, obligations or a visual "storyboard" that highlight past projects.

6: bury your head in the sand:

Although it can be scary to terminate his job, a job that does not lead anywhere end up causing more harm than it's worth.

In an uncertain economy many believe that it is safer to stay with their current employer than to risk taking a job with a new company, says David Sanford, executive vice president of customer relations for staffing company Winter, Wyman.

But do not bury your head in the sand and hope that everything will go well. Even in the best of times, companies will routinely be merged, acquired, implode and be passed over, and sometimes experiencing enterprises mass exodus of employees looking for new, better jobs. Be prudent and always be updated on the company's situation. Keep your eyes and ears open for when it's time to move on, says Sanford.

The Five Most Common Career Mistakes

The Five Most Common Career Mistakes

Author Daniel have identified the five most common reasons for regret in your career. Read what mistakes to avoid in your own career.

There are many major decisions to be taken in connection with study options and career choices. Some mistakes will usually regret, but one can also steer away from the most common mistakes by learning from what others have done wrong earlier.

Daniel Gulati is a successful entrepreneur and author of the book "Passion & Purpose: Stories from the Best and Brightest Young Business Leaders." In collaboration with Harvard Business Review, he sat down with working professionals between 28 and 58, and asked what they regretted most of their career choices.

The group was diverse and representative: He spoke among others with a 39 year old CEO of a major investment bank, a self-employed photographer without much success, an entrepreneur who had managed to become a multi-millionaire, and a CEO from the famous Fortune 500 list .

There were five dominant themes which shone through with them all. And more importantly, the effect of bad career decisions and unfulfilled expectations about their careers felt equally by all age groups.

Here are the five most common things they regretted in his career:

1. I wish I had not taken the job just for the money.

By far the biggest source of regret came from those who had chosen high paying, but unsatisfactory careers. Previous research also shows that good salary is no lasting motivator in his career. What was surprising was the feeling of helplessness these people faced.
A banker explained: "I dream about quitting every day, but I have too many financial obligations."

2. I wish I had stopped earlier.

Consistently, wanted those who had quit their jobs to pursue your passion, that they had done it earlier. Uncertainty in the labor market, and the desire for a stable income are two of the reasons why 80% of those who are dissatisfied with their jobs did not stop when they know they should.

A sales consultant in the group stated: "Those years could be used to work with something that actually mattered to me. These years will I never return"

3. I wish I had the courage to start my own business.

As the increase in wages stagnated, said professionals surveyed said they began to yearn for more control over their lives. The logical answer? To be their own boss, instead of being employed in others company.
A recent study showed that 70% of employees wished their current employer would help them to start their own business in the future, but only 15% said they had faith that they actually had what it takes to venture out on their own .

Even Fortune 500 CEO dreamed of freedom as their own boss: "My biggest regret is that I am a entrepreneur. I've never managed to take the plunge and start something from scratch."

4. I ​​wish I had spent my time at school more productively.

Despite high student, it turns out that about 86% is higher education a good investment. Although several higher education than in the past, wanted many of the participants surveyed said they had used their school years to aim for a truly rewarding first job after graduation.

A biologist told about her college experience: "I had the ridiculous rush to complete what in retrospect proved to be the best and most unstructured years of my life."

Having started a family and acquired mortgages, there were many who wanted but could not find room to go back to school to improve career opportunities.

5. I wish I had listened more to your gut.

Several people told of lost career opportunities, and many lost "now-or-never moment." Newer theories in psychology emphasizes the importance of identifying these sometimes unpredictable but potentially rewarding opportunities for change and jump on these opportunities to non-linear advance in their career.

What can you learn from this?

Gulati surmises that instead of suppressing them, should feelings one has about repentance in their careers hold a privileged place in the emotional repertoire. Research shows that anger can be a powerful catalyst for change, and largely offset the short-term emotional lows.

As the famous psychologist Dr. Neal Roese recently stated:

On average, the remorse a useful sense. It may also be an inspirational experience. But that means we must articulate and celebrate our disappointments, and understand that it is our ability to experience remorse, and learn from it, which ultimately will shape our future success.

Graduates have much of a chance, but they have to prepare very well, says Head of the Career Center.
Self-esteem must up, there is no reason not to apply for a position even if you are a recent graduate, said John Carter manager at the Career Center.

Career Center has two main groups, one is the students, the other businesses. For students there are several offers, job search training, interview training with headhunters and career guidance.

It's full of all our courses, students make use of all our offerings. We note that additional well now that the labor market is tight and there are several competitors for the positions, says John.

Graduates have nothing to lose:

To hire graduates secures contemporary expertise.

This says the group's director of promotion and recruitment, Tone Holland.

State Oil Hydro recently voted the most attractive employer among students in technology, finance and IT in 2015. The survey was conducted by Hydro Communications, and consisted of 320.00 students from 31 countries, of which 5,400 of them were from Asia.

Tone Holland, explaining that they have received 8,000 applications this year alone from new graduates.

We have a special strategy for recruitment of graduates, we are looking at learning institutions and the talent market. Graduates have nothing to lose against applicants with much experience. underlines Tone Holland.

Follow Application Criteria:

With many qualified applicants, it is important to follow application standards companies have to apply for a position. It comes to present basic criteria you have, which might be to speak several languages, having studied abroad or good academic results. This must be thought through in advance. Different types of organizational work will also count, it shows that we have had a commitment beyond studies.

There is stiff competition between many talented applicants, therefore it is extremely important that the application be filled by the right format, that everything is complete and that you send with all the attachments requested, says Tone Holland.

Tone Holland highlights as well that when the application is in place, it is especially important to prepare well for the job interview, it means having knowledge about themselves and the employer.

If you are invited for an interview, it means that basically is qualified for the position you have applied. It is we who will interview, but it is important that the candidate reads up on now and ask good questions. Job seeker will also find an employer and a job you will enjoy working with, she advises.

Keep Control Of Your Responses:

Most importantly, according to career counselor John Carter is sufficient to control of himself, that one knows what to say and how to say it.

The most common question an employer asking is: "Tell me about yourself." You are then able to give a short presentation of themselves, it should be thought out in advance, explaining John.

One then has the opportunity to say something sensible and specific about education, and it comes to using a practical and common language.

The student must go specifically to assault must be clearly and find their own way to explain their expertise on. It is important to use a less academic language. One can imagine how one would explained neighbor or a family company what you study, explains John.

In addition, the question of strengths and weaknesses very widespread, and it comes to realizing their limitations explains John.

This is something you certainly should have thought through, because it also says something about the applicant's self-knowledge. You should simply have an answer to this. We all have something we can work with, and it is easy to be aware of it, advises John.

Things You Should Not Ask:

The employer is the leading word in the job interview, but the job seeker has the opportunity to ask questions. But not everyone is equally suited to quiet, this should also be thought through in advance.

Never ask how did the interview, it raises employer on the spot. If, however, have not received job, jobseeker later ask if there is anything he can do differently, says John.

One should avoid are questions about employer's management style continues John Carter, especially if they have many employees.

In theory, it seems this question is perfectly fine, but it might be a difficult question to answer for the boss.

Director Tone Holland thinks that there are almost no limits to what one should ask questions about, it is up to the applicants themselves, but one should have normal civility in mind.

You know what is private and what one should not ask questions about. This is something that goes both ways, but if seeking not understand where to draw the line, so it also tells a lot about the person.

It is important to act both as a good corporate citizen and a skilled job seeker at once.

Trust yourself, be well prepared and act professionally.

Nervous Before A Job Interview?

Nervous Before A Job Interview?

Most people find the job interview as a situation where it is expected much of one. Then the nervousness come creeping, but is it really bad?

You know it quivering in your stomach and your hands are sweating. Perhaps because this is the job you've been wanting for a long time and now finally have the opportunity to get.

Then of course comes the nervousness creeping, inconvenient as always. But according to experts, need not necessarily be negative.

Totally Normal:

It's perfectly normal to be nervous before an interview, and nervousness do not hinder. For some it may still be as much nervousness that one becomes paralyzed.

This says Espen Skorstad, specialist in work and organizational psychology, and author of the book "The right person in the right place". He points to various reasons why many become nervous before the interview.

Especially the thought that something goes wrong, and that we therefore do not get the job, is common. For others, the meeting with a new situation cause nervousness; and wonder what they will be asked and where it ends.

One way to avoid such situations is to practice, either with a friend or through interview training held at universities and colleges, explains Skorstad, adding

I do not think you directly should attempt to hide nervousness. Most are more or less nervous facing a challenging task.

It is also possible to mention your nervousness to your interviewer, which can "relieve some of the pressure."

Excited for both parties:

The media group Schibsted offers trainee programs that are both popular and sought after. In Norway, every year around 60 young and hopeful for an interview with them. Morten Hatlem, responsible for trainee programs to Schibsted, explains that the interviews is a tense situation for both them and the candidates.

Both we and job applicants are of course interested in the interview to work. Therefore it is important for us to ensure that the situation is as positive as possible.

Hatlem explains that it is therefore important to have strategies to make candidates less nervous.

We want, as far as possible, to create confidence and headroom in the interview. Meanwhile, we notice that many are especially nervous the first few minutes. Therefore, we often start of the interview to present your company to help candidates relax.

Positive nervousness:

If the candidate fail to give a fair picture of himself, or dry to unleash, as we have in many ways lost a candidate, says Skorstad, experiencing many ways to withdraw nervousness on.

Someone is talking so much that the interviewer does not reach, while others bring out a single word.

Also Skorstad agrees that nervousness can hinder.

It is of course negative when nervousness seems obstructive for the feat, one gets completely Iron Curtain. This does not mean that nervousness just want to be negative, adding Skorstad, and continues.

A right amount of nervousness could increase performance. Think of athletes who always perform better in competition than in training.

This tells us that a certain amount of psychological and physiological stress is important to deliver a good result, but it's too much nervousness, it will weaken performance.

Tested by future colleagues:

Hatlem agree with Skorstad that positive nervousness may be tightening their candidate, although he is still candidates who fail to create positive energy out of nervousness.

For those who are very nervous, I think it is important to create some mindset. For example, ask the interviewer never knowingly questions to put some firm. No interviewers are served by such a situation and the purpose is solely to form a picture of the person.

At the same time I think that during the interview is important to think through the positive aspects of those one being interviewed by. This can make it easier to conduct a dialogue with them, says trainee responsible Hatlem and concludes fooled.

The fact is that there are future colleagues who interviews you.

How Do You Feel After The Job Interview

Should we call to show interest, or leave it to not seem desperate. Time after the job interview is completed can also be unnerving.

Man prepares often very good job interview, but many may not think as much about what happens after the interview is finished and you've gone home.

If the potential employer has not said anything about how long it takes before deciding on a candidate, and you'd rather not have asked about how long they envisage that this process will then go some insecure and unnerving days meeting if you really want the job.

Ask About The Process Further:

What is common is that the interviewer says about the process. For example, that they are going to make a decision within two or three days. If they do not, it's wise to ask what are the plans further, you will not have to wonder, says Head of Adecco Select, Helene Tronstad Moe Student Centre.

But it has not been said about the way forward, might wonder many on whether one should call the prospective employer, so one should work most interested. Should we do this, one should have some good questions on the sly.

There are some who think that they have to call just to call to show interest. This is particularly true before you have sent off the application, where it calls without having some good questions, and ask about things that are already known, she continues.

Involved In Other Offers:

If you have been interviewed and are already involved in other job offers, there is not anything in the way that you can call to see if they have taken a decision on who gets the job.

It may be that they are involved in other processes, you may have got another job offer, and when it is relevant to know when the other process is going in a goal, it is entirely fair, says Tronstad Moe.

Other Gang Interview:

So call your phone and you receive an offer to get the second interview.

During the first interview goes one CV, education and job experience. In a second interview

it is more common to go into the actual job. Maybe you get tests and case studies, as well as a more in-depth discussion on the job, says Technical Manager.

At another time the interview is even more important tigers that preparations have been made. It may be by reflecting on what tasks you speak, the foundation for success in the job, in addition to be familiar with the organization and the organizational chart, she says.

If the job should go to someone else, it might be instructive for you to call the people who interviewed you, to get answers on what you did wrong and right, then you know that for next time.

You may want to call the interviewer has seen as your strengths and weaknesses, as well to go into the things that you have said during the interview. It can be nice to get a feedback. If this is a place you really want to work, you can also request to be added to the database or ask HR professional register.
