An arrogant rude job seeker.

Have you heard a corporate guy refer to another as very arrogant? How did you decipher that? There is something that people who have achieved status adopt easily because of the kind of security they posses and here I mean financial security. It is commonly known as self actualization and they live happily because of their status. If you listen to some individuals in our society speak, you will appreciate the kind of confidence they posses, this is what is commonly known as ‘corporate arrogance’ in the world of finance and jobs.

Can a job applicant posses it? Oh Yes he can. How? The first thing you need to realize is that this is not a rule or regulation, it is just a mindset and no one will impart it in you but yourself. 

CV or Resume: Which one is the best or fits your qualifications?

Ever thought of which among the two well fits you? Some people have written to us emails asking the difference among the two documents and which one fits their profile.

When you are entering the real world (after college or university), you actually begin your job hunting experience with mixed emotions. You are finally ready to apply what you have learned and stand on your own feet. One of the most essential documents that will be demanded by any employer or placement agency is a resume or sometimes a CV. If you are under the impression that a CV and a resume are the same thing, you have been certainly misinformed. The aim of this article is to clarify the difference between CV and resume, for all those of you who think that they are one and the same thing.

Purpose

A Winning Cover Letter: The worst mistake ever.

Chances are you went through several drafts of your CV before you submitted it to a prospective employer. You wrote and rewrote each line several times and had friends, family, even strangers proofread it or you even had a professional firm do it for you. But if you send it off without enclosing a cover letter, your hard work may never be seen. I recently had to read an email application for someone who had one line as a
cover letter. It really left me wondering about the seriousness of such a candidate.

Most HR managers, directors, recruiters or other decision makers prefer a good cover letter attached to a CV. Think of it as the first chance to stand out in a sea of applicants. Your cover letter, if done well, tells the hiring manager you are qualified for the job and a serious candidate. Perhaps more important is the opportunity to show your personality.

What executives look for when interviewing.

In the human resource world, all executives who interview you expect to hire the best and the brightest. In getting the crème de la crème, they use different methods in achieving the results. Most of them use behavioral analysis when interviewing and any careful HR executive will process all the information required to hire a candidate only in one sitting. Today, I want to take you through the mind of an interviewer; this article will give you insight into the various philosophies and approaches used by interviewers.

The following are angles in which an interviewer will assess the candidate he or she is reviewing:

Interview blunders you should always avoid

In this world everything is about perception and marketers can tell you this very well. I have a brother of my friend who works at KCB as a training manager although he has an MBA in Marketing and he tells me that marketing is about changing or enhancing perception which are focused on influencing the consumption behaviors of our targets. An interview is not different because the perception that you leave behind is very important and thus you should endeavor to market yourself as good as possible.

In this exercise of marketing, it is very easy to find yourself making a few mistakes here and there. The first opportunity you get to create a good impression is the three-second handshake that starts the interview. An ineffective handshake can spoil your image. A limp hand shake can give the impression of disinterest or weakness. Make the handshake short and firm to give out a positive message. We have always advised towards this. Please look at our earlier articles.

Start networking conversations – Secrets to doing it.

We have always emphasized on the importance of networking. This is very important in getting the right job for you. You may think that networking is a preserve of those already in the job market but there are even a lot of avenues through which you can connect with corporate leaders even at the beginning of your career. Today, we will focus on the way to start a networking conversation in order to avoid embarrassment and negative responses.

In order to get the right job, you do not have any other option but to network. Whether you already are in job or starting your career. This is the fastest way to get a good job and here the emphasis is on the word good job.  In most conversations, many people end up telling, rather than asking or selling, rather than connecting. Be the smart guy and always leave an impression on someone you talk to. Imagine you are in symposia in college and an HR guy from a certain company is presenting, how will you talk to him/ her thereafter or if you were in a cocktail, what happens when you start a conversation.
