Think Job Fairs are a waste of time?




Think Job Fairs are a waste of time? 
.
Think again!
.
Yes, job fairs are different now but that does not mean you should not attend them if you are looking for a new job, especially if you ae unemployed or looking for your first job.
.
Joyce Lain Kennedy recently confirmed in her Chicago Tribune’s Careers Now column (http://www.chicagotribune.com/classified/sns-201605111130--tms--careersntp--h-a20160515-20160515-column.html) that job fairs are a not a waste of time depending on your expectations.  If you are expecting an immediate job offer, then attending a job fair will waste your time.  If you want to meet some valuable contacts and learn about some open positions, then the next job fair in your area will be beneficial.
.
Other reasons that job fairs are a helpful tool in your job search:
1. You can connect with a recruiter from a company that you are interested in working for
2. You can practice your introduction elevator speech
3. You can get feedback on your resume
4. You can get contacts to add to your LinkedIn Network
5. You can ask recruiters how to transition into a new field
6. You can get tips from recruiters on how to apply online for a job at their company
7. You can connect with a recruiter who might be willing to do a mock or informational interview

Ace Any Interview with 8 Effective Tips!

Ace Any Interview with 8 Effective Tips!
.
Interviewing is one of the hardest, most stressful part of finding a new job.
Everyone has heard the common interviewing tips:
• Dress appropriately
• Arrive 5 to 10 minutes early
• Prepare some questions for the interviewer
• Practice answers to the common interview questions
• Bring extra copies of your resume
• Bring your references
• Research the company
.
All of above is great, must-do advice but today’s job market is very cluttered and exceedingly competitive so you need to stand out in the crowd and leave a lasting impression to land your dream job.
You may be wondering how do break through the clutter?  What should I do to stand out?
.
Even though Georgene Huang and Romy Newman started FairyGodBoss.com for women, they shared 8 effective tips that anyone can use to stand out at their next job interview.
.
You can check out all of the tips on their website here: https://fairygodboss.com/Articles/8-interview-tips-to-help-you-stand-out-from-the-crowd
.
While each tip offers great advice and useful examples, I particularly like “Tip #1 – Open Strong.”
.
Everyone knows that first impressions are everything.  The old saying goes “You never get a 2nd chance to make a 1st impression.”  Interviews are no exception to this rule.  From the minute you walk through the door or say hello on the phone for an interview, as the FairyGodBoss states, “you can set the tone from the beginning.”
.
Entrepreneur magazine (https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/246948) reported that a study conducted by Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology found that 60% of interviewers made decisions about a candidate in the first 15 minutes and 26% of interviewers decided within 5 minutes.
.
The challenge is convincing a stranger to hire you in less than 15 minutes.   This may seem impossible but it’s doable with the proper preparation. Researching the company and practicing your opening in front of another person are keys to success. 
.
Interviewing can be very intimidating.  Preparation and practice will ensure that you do your best.  Remember that first impressions are everything!

Interviewing Tips: What You Should Ask In An Interview

Interviewing Tips: What You Should Ask In An Interview

There comes that moment in any job interview where the employer asks the final question. You breathe a sigh of relief when you answer it beautifully and think that you have the job in the bag. Then something happens that you didn’t expect, the employer asks if you have any questions for them. If you’re not prepared one of two things will likely happen. You’ll either say no and end the interview or ask a bunch of irrelevant questions to fill up the time. Both are going to pretty much guarantee the job offer will not go to you. Employers give you the opportunity to ask questions to gage your interest. In this article we will look at good and appropriate question to ask an employer during an interview.

A good question to ask is who your immediate supervisor will be. There is a good chance that the person doing the interview will not be directly responsible for you. However, they may be a part of the decision making process so it is a chance to make a good impression on them as well. You should also ask for your sake. You will have to work quite closely with this person and you need to know what you are getting yourself into.

A second good question to ask is when a hiring decision will be made. This shows that you are keen and eager to get started. You could also ask how successful candidates will be notified. Showing an interest in details like this will work to your advantage.

Asking about future advancement opportunities is a good question to ask. This shows that you have a long term view of staying with the company and employers generally like that. They are more likely hire a person who is going to stay with them for an extended period of time then someone who will move on in a few years time. It also shows that you are goal oriented and ambitious which most companies admire.

To complement advancement, you could ask about possible training opportunities. This again shows your ambition as well as willingness to learn.

Finally, asking about the appropriate dress code is a good question. This shows you’re willing to please and have an eye for detail.

By asking your employer some or all of the above questions, you will present yourself as a serious minded person who has a long term interest in the company. Asking questions of the employer is another opportunity to put your best foot forward. Make sure you use it to your advantage.

Interviewing Tips: The Perfect Interview

Interviewing Tips: The Perfect  Interview

Interviews can be both a blessing and a curse. While you’re excited about the prospect of a new career and position, getting through the actual interview can be nerve-racking. People fall into the trap of either over preparing and second-guessing themselves or under preparing and not putting their best foot forward. In this article we will attempt to give you some useful tips on how to have the perfect interview.

Something that employers like to see is an interest in their company. Before you have your interview, do some research on the company. Make a list of useful facts and familiarize yourself with it. It shows the employer that you have a genuine interest in the company because you have taken the time to look some information up.

Before your actual interview, a good tip is to practice. Ask a friend to work with you in a role play situation. Have them ask typical interview questions but also have them create some of their own questions that you’re not aware of. This will help you think on your feet and answer those out of left field type questions.

You should always go to an interview on your own. If you have children this is one time where a sitter is essential. Showing up with children gives the wrong impression. Even if your children behave beautifully it will leave the employer wondering if the children will present a problem in the future. Childcare issues account for a large portion of absenteeism in the work place and having your children there will help remind the employer of that. This could result in you loosing the job offer to someone without a family even though they may be less qualified.

Finally, greet the employer with a handshake. This is proper etiquette and shows good manners. It also sets a formal but friendly tone to the interview.

Interviewing can be tricky. Sometimes it is hard to tell how to act. If your over perform you may put off the employers and if you under perform you could look foolish. They end result however will be the same, you will loose out on the job offer. By practicing your interviewing techniques, doing some research and arranging childcare ahead of time, you can help put your best foot forward and nail that interview. A whole new career could be just around the corner.
