Graduation Queries, 5: Planning A Career

Posted on 29 April 2013 by BMMBoxer

The general perception is that planning a career involves the following steps:
• Choosing an occupation, preferably based on your academics
• Getting a job in that respective field of work
• Growing in the job to achieve your goals
• Retiring from the job satisfied with everything you have achieved


However career planning involves a lot more. Life is unpredictable and it is always necessary to prepare yourself for what might come up. A career is no different. Globalization has in fact left us at a stage where career planning is even more vital. Careers are subject to various challenges, most of which aren’t within an individual’s control. Sound planning can help overcome these challenges.
Learning:
Learning is a lifelong process. People change jobs all the time to learn more, improve themselves and possibly make more money. The business world is subject to constant change and opportunities are always on the horizon. So strive to keep learning and improve your skill and knowledge levels.

Don’t just talk, listen too:
Listen to the people around you, especially the ones who are more experienced. Relate your views to them and ask for their opinions. This will help you learn more about yourself. At the same time, talking to others and hearing their experiences can teach you about the mistakes you mustn’t make.

The Current Job:
People tend to get swayed by money and circumstance while taking up a job. Assess a present or perspective job with an open mind keeping the telling factors in mind
• Do you like what you’re doing?
• Do you see future scope for progress?
• Do you see yourself doing this for a long time?
Such questions need to be answered. Always be clear about your job requirements and designation. Evaluate these points and make the best decision.


Follow Your Dreams:

Simply put: You have to like what you do. If you don’t, then find out what you like to do. You must identify and interpret your dream job and understand how you can possibly achieve this dream. The path need not be straightforward. But once you figure it out, you can start walking on it. Acting on your dreams is vital for long-term satisfaction and inevitably success. Your dreams define you, so work towards achieving a career within that framework.

Graduation Queries, 4: How To Get The Job You Desire

Posted on 22 April 2013 by BMMBoxer

Success, they say, is a journey rather than a destination. At a professional level, being successful in life goes hand in hand with attaining the job you desire; a job that keeps you satisfied and offers a sound foundation from where you can build yourself up for greater things in all spheres of life. Hence most professionals ask themselves – How do I get the job I desire?

Well here are a few pointers, which will guide you along that path:

Figure yourself out:

Before you begin the job search take time off for introspection. Analyze what you have done with your life and figure out what you want to do. Finding the job you desire is the first step in this entire process. You can even take a personality test to help assess yourself. Cross this hurdle and then get yourself ready for the psychological battle that waits.

Key Qualities:

  • The key to success is confidence. Believe in yourself at each stage and have absolute confidence in your abilities
  • Personal assessment helps you understand your strengths and weaknesses. Don’t hide from those weaknesses. Rather work out a way to get over them. It’s vital for you to bring your best qualities to the table and prove why you can be a difference maker
  • Strive to eliminate all stressful elements. It is natural to be under pressure when you’re working hard to achieve what you want. But it is equally important to let go of all the negativity that hinders your progress
  • Determination is another under estimated quality. But when the going gets tough, only determined people actually make it through

The Eventual Test:

All the preparation in the world can’t guarantee the best result unless you can implement and execute when it matters. Stick to your basics and take advantage of the opportunity when it comes because you can’t attain that desired job unless you tick the right boxes in a face-to-face situation.

Other factors:

  • It is important to keep an open mind and allow yourself to learn from your own previous mistakes and the experiences of others. Work out a different game plan if the original one doesn’t work out the way you wanted it to
  • Take some time off ‘serious’ mode and relax. Meet your friends and elaborate on your thoughts. Communication is vital as it will help you feel better and obtain a different perspective. You can even use various prevalent forms of social media (Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn) to interact with people who are in a similar position.
  • Lastly celebrate the small victories that come along the way. It will help you appreciate the effort you’ve put in.

Getting the job you desire isn’t a straightforward process. After all, the best things in life are hard to come by. But if you stay motivated and focus on your goals, then success will inevitably follow.

Graduation Queries, 3: How To Prepare For A Job Interview

Posted on 15 April 2013 by BMMBoxer

Job Interview Essentials

Job Interview Essentials

An interview is not just a test of the technical and communication skills you possess, but also an assessment of how you can handle pressure. Hence it’s important to be fundamentally strong but also psychologically prepared. Here are few pointers to keep in mind when you’re preparing for a job interview:

  • Analysis of Job Requirements: Take time off to analyze the job thoroughly and understand primarily what the company expects from a prospective candidate. This helps you ascertain whether you’re qualified for the job and more importantly whether the job is what you’re looking for. Once you’re sure, list out the job requirements. Match these requirements with your assets, right from experience to on the job skills. Review these and keep them in mind, something that is sure to help you when you’re face to face with the interviewer.
  • Know the Company: Find out as much about the company as possible. Talking to present employees can be beneficial as it will help you learn more about the company culture and its present position in the market. It always helps to be well informed.
  • Practice Makes Perfect: While it might be impossible to replicate the ‘interview ambience’, it helps to practice answering basic interview questions with a friend or family member. This can help you develop a sound mindset and protect you from going blank when it comes to the real time.

  • The Other Factors: While these might not be chief factors in the decision making process, they undoubtedly contribute to an overall impression. The ‘Other Factors’ include dressing, punctuality and etiquette. Pay attention to what you wear so you look your best. Reach the interview location on time.  Make sure you maintain a right posture throughout. More importantly, stay relaxed at all times.

  • A Two-Way Street: Simply put, an interview is you answering the question put forward to you. But make sure to listen too when you get the chance. Be attentive and engage the person by asking questions.  Greet everyone at the interview and maintain an open two way communication stream. Professionalism tinged with a friendly tone is generally a hit.
  • The Follow Up: It helps to go the extra mile. Follow up with a thank you mail/message. Be polite and show the interviewer that this job means a lot to you. The small supplementary factors help differentiate the better from the good.

Interviews test a person on various levels. It is vital to stay prepared because it is the one shot you have at creating a lasting impression. Since every interview could be a prospective job, it helps to be honest when it matters. Knowing what you want is paramount in the entire process and make sure you stay confident throughout. Especially in your ability to deliver when it matters.

Graduation Queries, 2: How To Write The Perfect Resume?

Posted on 08 April 2013 by BMMBoxer

Research and surveys have revealed that it actually takes recruiters an average of 6 seconds to decide whether a candidate is fit for a job based on reading their resume. So what are the secrets of a good resume? Well you have to pay attention to detail and make sure the important points are concise and hard-hitting. These pointers will help you understand better:

Be Specific:

A good resume is always tailored to the job you’re applying for. It should be reflective of what a potential employer looks for in an ideal candidate. Hence your resume needs to be more industry-specific than plain generic.

Important Details:

  • Put your name, address and contact details right at the top.
  • Should you state an objective? Only do that when you’re certain that the objective stands out and fits the job profile. Don’t be generic or philosophical.
  • Make sure to state only relevant work experience. While certain job skills are transferrable and form the crux of every working employee, don’t get into frivolous details which have no bearing on the present job.
  • List out your accomplishments and subtly make them stand out. Remember, these aren’t qualities you believe you possess. Rather works which have helped you gain credit and recognition. Preferably put your accomplishments in bullet points.
  • Keep education based information brief. Experienced candidates choose to keep information about academic degrees at the end of the resume. However if you’re graduate applying for a first job, then it would help being elaborative with respect to your academic success.
  • In today’s world, a lot of job searches take place online. Hence it is important to include job specific keywords in your resume which are reflective of the skills you possess.

Other Details:

It helps to not include information like your hobbies and references. In the professional world, recruiters don’t have too much time to worry about what you like doing outside the office space. More over if they are interested in referencing you up, they will ask.

Length of Resume:

Your length of resume should mirror your years of experience. Work experience does count for a lot, especially if it pertains to the same industry.

Supplementary Points:

  • Present the details in your resume in a chronological order which makes it easier for the recruiter to find important details.
  • Don’t just fill your resume with information. Rather balance the content with the right amount of white space.
  • Sometimes it helps to take an innovative route and create your own resume template rather than stick to a basic one. However make sure this is industry appropriate.

While there’s no pre-defined formula to crack a job with a resume, following these guidelines is sure to help. Stick to your strong points and keep it as simple as possible, that’s sure to leave a mark on any recruiter.
