Welcome to you all!
You are either an employer or an employee, perhaps, both. Here you have the text of the Equal Opportunity Law of the United States of America. Would
you like to read it?
In today’s job environment, one has the opportunity of seeking employment visiting the website of many organizations without leaving the living room
of our home. From any point of view, this practice offers many advantages.
Not long ago, searching for an employment was both, a physical and intellectual challenge. In reality, driving through highways and streets in a large
metropolitan area was expensive, inefficient and frustrating.
In today’s job-hunting process, even the first round of interviews are conducted in a remote fashion via phone or even via a videoconference platform.
Recommendations when searching for a new Job
Write a resume. Make sure your resume is well written, absolutely important is that your resume is free of spelling and grammatical errors, and
contains a strong and very descriptive Summary section and/or a section of Qualifications with the main objective summarizing your main skills,
things you have accomplished and naturally your experience. If you were out of work for some time, perhaps you may want to evaluate the
benefits of writing a functional Curriculum Vitae and not a conventional chronological one. Remember this, through your Curriculum Vitae you
are selling your skills and yourself as a problem solver. What you have said and the way you have said it invites an employer to met you in person?
Write a Cover Letter. In most cases this is an option, however, this letter is a personal distinction and it is the avenue to offer potential
employers information about you, what is that you have done and accomplished, what set of skills do you posses that offers benefits to the
company you are sending your resume. This is the opportunity for getting across with your confidence and your sales skills to call the attention
of the person reading about you. Be bold but truthful.
Show Interest for the position. One of the most important things an employer wants to hear from you is that you want the position. The chitchat
conversation you will have to break the ice with the employer is followed by the burning question:
What brings you here? or
What do you offer to us?
This is your time; be bold but brief. Remember: Talk more and talk bad. Express the sentence you have practice over and over responding these
Optional as well is a gift to leave behind; this is truly based on the type of position you are applying for. If you are applying for a position as a
bilingual secretary, you may have a brief poem written in both languages as a small gift for your interviewer to remember you. Think about it.
Improve Interview Skills
Interviewing for a position really represents that door and the opportunity to land this new position. If you do not have the experience of going
through an interview process, now is the time to practice and to be solid in this art of selling yourself to others.
Before getting to the interview please do your homework; this is, read about the company, what is that they do, when was the company
founded, visit their website and go through it to find information and data about who they are. Gather some questions and make a list with all
these questions. Make sure you bring this list of questions and ask them these questions, demonstrate with this your interest in the company.
Here you have some pointers:
Maintain good eye contact at all times
Speak slowly and clearly
Be friendly and show good manners
Do not ask about salary at this time
Please turn off your mobile phone
Do not get distracted
Ask your questions
An interview is the time to cause a good impression to the person or persons you will be talking during the process. The message you send to
them will be a factor on their decision to hire you or not. This impression begins with the way you will be dressing and the way your hairstyle is at
the interview time. Please make sure you send a message of a dynamic, up-to-date person with the desire of learning and stretching new
frontiers and new skills. Do not go dressed the way people dressed in 1925, but on the other hand, be modern but conservative, with style but
