Benefits of Contract Jobs

New Connections

During your tenure at a temporary position, you will meet and interact with new people. This helps you to build a professional network, which helps you to stay current in your chosen field. You can also gain advice from trusted sources that helps to improve your skills and lead to additional opportunities.

Trying the Job Out

Contract jobs often last weeks, months, or sometimes longer. This extended length of time working for a company gives you time to decide if the position is the right fit for you. It also allows hiring managers to evaluate your abilities. In the event that a full-time position opens up, if your managers think you are a good fit with the company, you are in a good position to land the job. You and your employer are familiar with one another and you know the job. In some cases, if you are working well, the employer may create a full-time position for you.

Filling the Gaps

Working in a temporary position is no reason to

Exploring Career in Financial

You can’t just expect to walk in and nab a “plum” financial planner position. You must show proof that you possess the necessary qualifications. A Bachelor’s degree in a financial field is an excellent starting point. It may get you in the door at some places. However, more and more employers are insisting that applicants for financial planning positions possess an MBA. This is especially true if you will be seeking a position that enables you to climb the corporate ladder to a senior management or even partner position.

You Will Need to Obtain Certification as a Financial Planner

The next step to becoming a financial planner is to obtain the necessary certification. The two most well-known types of certifications are Certified Financial Planner (CFP) and Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA). To qualify for the CFP exam, you will need three years’ experience in a finance-related industry. You also will need to have a Bachelor’s degree or better. And, finally, you will need to pass a thorough background check. The exam itself lasts 10 hours and

Experience to Get Part Time Job

Get a few hobbies

Interests are the simplest approach to puff out your resume and give you something to discuss during your interview. Above all, the experience you’ll pick up in interactive with people from more social pastimes is significant. On the off-chance that you can discover a group that you’re interested in, then you’re in good fortune. Generally, all part-time employment will search for evidence that you’re sociable and capable, and a social group is astounding verification.

Volunteer

Volunteering is a clear demonstration of your drive and responsibility. In the event that you can locate a volunteer position in a charity shop, then you’ve viably demonstrated to a potential manager that you’re as of now fit for doing a job (if only retail work). Volunteer positions can be an incredible way to meet individuals who might be looking to hire people, and it’s common to hire people you know over people you don’t, so getting to know members of the public is helpful. Heaps of volunteer positions will utilize more aged individuals who are

Job Skill Requirements

Be Yourself!

Perhaps a cliche… but I can’t say this often enough. I just read a popular work advice blog (to remain nameless) and I saw one of the first bits of advice for job interviews was to prepare a slick presentation of yourself and wow them with it. Ouch! While this might perhaps be useful if you are interviewing for a high-powered sales job or maybe an industry like entertainment or advertising (although even there they want to see who they’re really hiring), for most of you doing that will simply trigger a red flag, leaving the interviewer wondering if you’re all bluster and no substance.

Now I’m not saying to be all shy and gawky either (see next section), but real and conversational trumps one-dimensional and slick any time.

Look Me in the Eyes

Not saying stare at me… but when you answer my interview questions, I want to see you connect with me. I’d like to see when your eyes show real enthusiasm about something you’ve accomplished or sincerity about wanting to do a good job for me. Now of course I make room for nervousness, but if I see eyes

Cognitive Careers

Historically there has always been a need for intelligent people, but the correlation between cognitive ability and compensation was never as strong as it is today. One could have been an astute lawyer, financial planner, or mathematician at the turn of the 20th century, but the economy just didn’t reward those people at the levels that can be done today. We’ve created a much more complex economy requiring well-informed, inventive, and knowledgeable people who can navigate and derive value from what is for many of us a puzzling network of esoteric information in so many areas. The employment appeal for smart people is high and growing.

For years we have heard about high unemployment rates and at the same time we’ve heard there is not enough talent to hire for hard to fill positions. The jobs that are vacant seek individuals with know-how in management, engineering, data analysis, and many other areas where information processing, creativity, and workforce resourcefulness is called for. Professionalism is deepening across fields that include medicine / healthcare, the law, higher education, the sciences, the military, advanced manufacturing, and finance. Routine and relatively low-skilled operations will not bring competitive advantages to these career

Start Job Search

Get Focused on What You Want

It’s all about your target. What are you going after? Without this, watch out for endless job board roaming (yikes). When you actually do find what you want, you risk confusing the hiring manager with your lack of focus. They’ll want to know you are in it to win it ONLY with them. Spend some time getting focused on your target.

Get Clear on Who You Are

It’s all about your professional brand. Those in a position to hire must perceive you as the best person for their job – simple as that. One way to know if it’s a branding issue is if you’re not hearing back from the online application process OR your network. It’s very likely that they just don’t know how to help you because you are not aligning your fit to your target.

Identify the Best Tools to Support Your Job Search

There are more tools than ever available to job seekers depending on the bite-sized part of the search they are focusing on. If it’s the online job search and finding jobs, try job boards.

One of the most powerful

International School Employment

1. Evaluate how necessary it is to take up an international teaching job

Jobs for teaching English abroad are the most common, but you can also find other openings. To start the process, it is important that you take the time to think why you want that international school job. What makes it better than a local teaching job? Are you ready for the move and what effects might that have on your life? Traveling to take up a teaching position abroad is more suitable for single teachers compared to married ones who might end up leaving their families behind for extended periods of time. Before even starting your search for a job abroad, ensure that you are up for the challenge.

2. Find out how legit the job and the school is

The last thing you want is to travel only to find that the school is not what you expected. Find out as much as you can about the school and also the job in question before applying. The internet is a good place to look it up and from the reviews on directories and other sources you will be in a position

Find a Job Fast

The way to get out of a job search and into a great job fast is to hit it hard and be aggressive. You’ve got to talk to people, be your own best advocate, and learn to sell yourself for the job. You’ve got to learn to think of yourself as a product that someone, somewhere really needs. If there ever was a time to step out of your comfort zone, this is it.

What are some of the fastest ways to find a job? Without a doubt, the best, most direct way is contacting the hiring manager directly. The secret is contacting them whether or not you see that they have a job posted. This can be scary for some, but it is truly the most effective way to get an interview. It uncovers hidden jobs (estimated at approximately 70% of all open jobs at any given moment) and gets the attention of the person who can actually hire you (the hiring manager). Other good ways? Networking is one… but don’t think it’s only limited to those related to your career area. LinkedIn is another good one (but then again, that’s another version of networking).

Future Career in Finance

Blockchain Specialist

Blockchain is the technology that was introduced by the Bitcoin. It was originally designed as a decentralized digital currency. The key behind blockchain technology is that it allows reliable transactions of value between several parties without the need for a central authority. The potential applications to the banking industry are still uncertain. We could see it replace the current system for transferring money between local and global banking entities. The strengths of such a peer-to-peer system could also be used to propagate, between financial institutions, details on each economic agent.That would allow a bank to know very quickly if a particular client can be trusted, and thus greatly reducing compliance costs.

One thing is certain however, this technology will have a huge impact on the industry in the decades to come. Most major banks have invested in research on this technology. As Simon McNamara from RBS has said “I don’t know what’s going to succeed. What I’m certain of is that we are going to see blockchain solutions and peer-to-peer solutions emerging in our industry and we want to be close to that development.” Blockchain specialists will have a strong interest in both computer

Some Mistakes from Job Seeker

Underestimating LinkedIn

While the online landscape has complicated the application process, it has also served to benefit job seekers with the introduction of LinkedIn. LinkedIn is the place to be because it offers a ton of benefits regardless of profession, level, goal or job search status (even non-job seekers need to have an optimized profile). For job seekers, this is the largest talent database, which translates to: “the place 100% of recruiters and hiring managers go to find their next hire.” For non-job seekers, LinkedIn is important because it allows you to be found for opportunities you least expect. LinkedIn is also a great resource for researching companies or career paths and managing your professional network. You don’t need to join every social network but trust me – you do need to be optimized on LinkedIn.

Not Communicating Your Brand

Professional brand strategy is probably the number one area for improvement when job seekers in need, contact me. Many job seekers think of a resume, cover letter or LinkedIn profile as a work history and tend to communicate a very standard, dull brand with every application. However, your application documents should be viewed as marketing

Part Time Work

School/University

Numerous schools or colleges will run occasions, for example, job fairs which can be an astounding spot to get yourself out there and address employers in person and find what occupations may be a good fit for you.

Besides, a few schools or colleges may offer a Job Shop service that may list positions for nearby employers why should looking contract students. Certainly do some searching if you’re at school or college as there can be a plenty of choices accessible to you. A few colleges or universities may even be hoping to employ students themselves, to work in stores or bars on college grounds. Simply do some searching and see what alternatives you can uncover.

The Internet

If only there were some magical repertoire of knowledge that you can search to find whatever you need.

Hold up, there is! Moreover, you’re on it at this moment.

The web is an incredible spot to look for part-time work. There are whole sites committed to employment postings. Monster, Reed, and Indeed are a couple of these.

These locales permit you to hunt down occupation postings in your general vicinity. Be that

Maximize Job Opportunities

Use Social Media

Many people might feel a little odd about broadcasting their desire for employment to all of their friends and family. Don’t be. You should use social media to your advantage, and do so shamelessly. Your aunt may know that her attorney is looking for a new associate, but didn’t realize you were thinking of leaving your firm. The company your old college roommate works for might be accepting resumes, but he didn’t know you were interested. In short, make sure your friends and family know that you are looking for job opportunities. In fact, a recent survey showed that over 36 million workers attribute their current employment to social media.

Apply For The Position You Want, No Matter What

If there is a specific type of employment that you are interested in, apply for it. Even if there are no openings, apply. Mail, e-mail, fax, or hand deliver a copy of your resume and cover letter to the company. Explain that while you know there are currently no available openings, you are very much interested in working for the company if any become available. Who knows, they might have been planning to

Get Moving Careers

Does it give you the fulfilment you were looking for? Could it have been different, still? For many people, after having been through the past so many years in their current career, they wonder if they are indeed getting the inner fulfilment or inner success that they really wanted.

Consider the following questions:

  1. Do you love and enjoy doing what you do at work?
  2. What are those 3 things that you like most about your current job or career?
  3. What are those 3 things that you dislike the most? What could have been different?
  4. If there was one thing that you would like to change in your career, what would that be?
  5. Do you feel there is something better for you out there?
  6. Assuming you had all the skills and the right beliefs to make changes in your career, then what would your career look like?
  7. Are you in a situation where you want to make a career shift, but do not know what to do?
  8. If yes, then what is holding you back from making that shift?
  9. Have you set any short-term and long-term goals for yourself that you wanted to achieve, and by when? If yes, are you facing any challenges?

Tactics Find Jobs Online

• Nature of work for freelancers –
Freelancers need to decide conclusively on the nature of the work they are willing to offer. This should mandatorily be in a field they are experienced in, as experienced freelancers inevitably get priority. Freelancers need to be really passionate about the field of work they are involved in and willing to work. As this is a job far from the conventional 9-5 type, passion and discipline is important.

• Pay scale –
After deciding on the type of work, one needs to compare the prevailing prices in the market for freelancers. Depending on the domain, the experience and the credentials, rates differ. The freelancer needs to evaluate his or her value and then decide on a price point.

• Experience –
The employer will definitely look for someone with experience in the field, preferably with references.

• Social media –
One can search for jobs on social media but they must be aware of many fraudulent companies that thrive in social media platforms.

• Online platforms –
After all the groundwork is done, the easiest way to get hired is to go through a hiring portal. As

Resume Engaging

Engaging Headings
• Use “Core competencies” if you have two to five years of experience or are switching careers. Give categories of your expertise here.
• Use “Professional Expertise” if you have longer work histories. And yes summarize them here.
• Use “Technical Competencies” if you are technically competent. This is a key area especially for people who are applying for technical jobs.

Engaging Experience
1. People end up paying more attention to job duties and descriptions than accomplishments. Don’t do that.
2. Include results, effects and contributions made at your former jobs, along with the company name, job title and years of employment.
3. Keep them short, sweet, concise and compact.
4. State the most important points first.
5. State the most valuable bits first.

Write Killer Resume

Number One: So, let’s start at the beginning. The first thing you want to put at the top of your resume is your complete contact information. This consists of four things:

• Your full name
• Your mailing address
• Your phone number
• Your email address

While this information may seem like a no-brainer, you will once again be surprised by how many people leave out either their phone number or email address or both! Leaving out this information makes a bad impression on the hiring manager, as you can imagine. Including it at the top saves the hiring manager from searching through your resume hoping to locate it, and it also makes it easy for him/her to reach out to you.

Number Two: Keep the formatting simple. This point could easily have been under the “What to avoid when writing your resume,” but I wanted to put it here as you actually get ready to write it. In a nutshell: Keep it plain and simple. Avoid the following:

Make sure you use text only:

• No shading or lines or borders
• No graphics, logos or fields
• No templates or

Must know about Job Abroad

1. Do your research. Before applying for a job abroad, you need to be informed about how they manage resumes in the country you are moving to. Do you need a cover letter? Short or long resume? Do you need to attach your certificates? Or is your resume acceptable as is? In some cases, you will need to translate and notarize your degree and other certificates, so it is very important to do your research.

2. Spread the news. Once you make a decision about the place you are going to be living next, tell every single person you know. This way, you will probably meet people who went through a similar experience or that are native of the country you chose. Your aunt will always have a friend of a friend who spent their summer in a far away and exotic country.

3. Consider all your possibilities. Before quitting your job and booking the first ticket to Timbuktu, find out if the company you are currently working for offers exchange programs or if you have the possibility of being transferred to another branch. Other options are searching online for a job abroad, as well as

Read Job Posting Description

1. Do I have the experience that this position requires? – Job postings will have the minimum years of experience the candidate must have. If the employer asks for 5 years of experience and you are a recent college grad, or have 3 years of experience, then you will not meet the requirements of that particular job, and you will waste of your time and effort to applying for the role.

2. Do I have the education or training the position is asking the candidate to have? – The job description will indicate the education level the company would like you to have (i.e. high school diploma, some college, bachelors’ degree). If you did not graduate from a university or college and this is the minimum requirement, then your chances of getting an interview are slim to none.

3. Are you qualified? – Job postings will have the required qualifications that will be considered for the position. Some postings will list 3 or 4 required skills while others may list 10+. Read this section carefully. This area of the posting will provide keywords to include in your resume, and will also provide you with the list

Negotiate for Higher Pay

The reason for this is because it is very hard for companies to find good people to hire. Just think about how many resumes the hiring manager receives (hundreds for a sales position), and think about how many of those are no good (for one or many reasons). Again, 80 – 90% of the resumes a company receives are not qualified for the position.

Next, think about all the interviews a hiring manager has to deal with. First, anywhere between 20 to 30% of interviews don’t even show up! No calls of explanation – just a no-show. Next, of the people that do show up, many of them are disqualified in person for one reason or another.

And then think about how excited the hiring manager is to finally meet you. First, your cover letter and resume put you at the top of the list. Assuming that you have taken some time to write out sample cover letters, and have invested the time to customize your resume to the job(s) you want, you have no doubt landed interviews with the kinds of companies that can further your career. If you have interviewed well – in other

Workforce Shortages

At an individual level the college student trying to select a major, the college graduate attempting to launch a career, the established professional looking to make a career transition, and the entrepreneur seeking lucrative opportunities are among those who may benefit from an analysis of where the workforce shortages currently exist and where employment projections are anticipated. Although such knowledge and considerations are not necessarily paramount determiners of one’s career development they are worth investigating to see if an alignment exists between these trends and one’s enduring or potential value proposition.

There are several reasons for the decline of qualified workers with demographics being the big one. The aging of Baby Boomers is naturally leading to more retirements and domestically there aren’t enough replacements. Ten years ago 400,000 workers per year retired. That number has risen to 1.2 million today. And the older population creates increased demand in fields such as healthcare where more workers are needed than in the past. For example physical therapists, occupational therapists, and even doctors are already in short supply and are still expected to be in the future.

However it isn’t just in healthcare where shortages exist. To be honest
