Looking for a job?

Friday, December 5th, 2014

Looking for a job? Here are four things that every job hunter should do to prepare for an interview.

Meet Steve, a job hunter attending a networking group of his peers. As we enter the room, we overhear his conversation with Sally, another job hunter.

Steve: “…my old college roommate got me fixed up with a job interview in a few days at ABC Company.”

Sally: “That’s great news, Steve!”

“Maybe,” he responds. “I don’t know much about the company and I’m going in with an open mind to let them tell me more about the organization and the job. I’m open to seeing if this is a good opportunity for me.”

The good news: Steve has sought out and attends networking meetings for job hunters. They exist all over, and often take place in local libraries or houses of worship. In these groups, people build relationships to support each other, share their needs and offer leads and suggestions of what to do next. People practice their elevator speeches and gain supportive suggestions from peers who are going through the same process of ever sharpening their message and its delivery

Steve has apparently done a great job of networking. He has motivated people from much earlier in his life to be involved and helpful with his current job hunt, and through them he’s thereby been able to get his foot in the door to meet with the hiring manager. Kudos to Steve for all this.

The problem: Having come this far, Steve won’t likely be successful if he goes into a job interview expecting to be courted, without first demonstrating his interest in the company and the value he represents.

Here are four things that Steve and every other job hunter should do to prep for an interview:

1. Thoroughly research the company. Check out its website, as well as its reputation on sites like and Check out its financials, business issues and competitors using sites like Yahoo! Finance, Google Finance and Hoovers is subscription based, but many local public libraries subscribe and allow their patrons to browse the site free of charge. Follow the company on LinkedIn, and see what people are saying.

2. Take time to carefully review the job description or advertisement. Prepare short narratives of how and when you have done each thing that is mentioned. Be prepared to talk about obstacles you encountered and how you dealt with them successfully. And by all means, be prepared to talk about past achievements that you have attained which in any way relate to the work necessary for the job.

3. Do an advanced people search on LinkedIn for current employees in the area of the company where you would be working, and review as many of their profiles as possible.When you are doing this, it is best to be in stealth mode. Go into the Privacy and Settings menu, adjust what others see when you have looked at their profiles and click on the “You will be totally anonymous” button.

Look for points that you have in common with individuals whose profiles you are reviewing. For example, you might have worked at the same company, attended the same school, developed similar skill sets, etc. Also seek out anything that will give you a tip off about the kinds of people the company likes to hire and the kinds of achievements that are most valuable to the company. In short, seek out anything that will give you a tip off about the kinds of people that the company likes to hire and the kinds of achievements that are most valuable to the company.

Prepare as well to subtly mention any points of commonality that you share, whether it is a past city, company, school, etc. It can be as simple as saying in one of your answers to an interview question, “When I worked at XX we did such and such …” if you know that several people in the department also worked at that company.

4. Prepare to ask intelligent questions. Never ask a question that you would know the answer to if you had done your homework. Instead, show your engagement and background by asking, “Do you do X this way or that way?” Show your desire to go above and beyond by asking, “What are the most important contributions I can make in the first six months on the job?” And include this killer interview closing question: “If I’m hired and you give me a stellar review a year from now, what will I have done to earn it?”

If a job seeker approaches an interview with an attitude that suggests, “tell me why I should want to work for you,” that person is not likely to get to the point of having to decide whether or not to work for the company. But if that same job hunter adopts the right attitude, does effective research and practices interviewing with others, he or she can sharpen the points to be made in the interview and maximize the chances of hitting the bull’s eye.

10 words and phrases that shouldn’t be on your résumé That’s some valuable real estate on your résumé. Don’t waste it with fluff.

Friday, December 5th, 2014

Writing a résumé can be downright tricky.

After all, you’ve got a finite amount of space in which to describe yourself and your professional capabilities. And you don’t have much time, either.

Yet creating a comprehensive and concise résumé is how you’ll increase your chances of landing a job interview. Although you have a sizable list of information you want to include—such as experience, skills, and education—there are also several words and phrases you should eliminate from your résumé.

Lauren Taylor, human resources generalist with Burns & McDonnell, has reviewed countless résumés. She used that experience to create a list of 10 words and phrases to keep off of your résumé. If you see any of these on your document, steer clear.

References available upon request. This phrase takes up valuable real estate that can be used to add more details about your accomplishments and experience. Instead, leave it off. If a company is interested in making you an offer, they will ask you for references (and assume you have them).

Dynamic/energetic/motivated/enthusiastic. Sure, all of these are great words to describe your personality, but leave them off of your résumé. Wait until you land the interview. Then let the company decide if you possess those traits. (After all, anyone can say they’re energetic.) If these words aren’t relevant to your skills and accomplishments, they don’t need to be on your résumé.

Microsoft Office. Most employers will assume (or even expect) you to be familiar with basic computer programs. Don’t use valuable space on this sort of information. Instead, focus on specialty skills and programs that will help you stand out from the crowd.

Objective. This is a tricky one. If you have a good objective, leave it on. If you don’t, take it off. Since the career objective is at the top of your résumé, it needs to make a big splash. If you have a specific objective to land a job in a specific industry using your specific skillset for the specific company, by all means include the information. If, on the other hand, you’re “looking to gain a challenging opportunity in which you can use your talents to help the company grow” skip it and use the space for more valuable information.

Experienced. Although you may have many years working in a certain field, don’t sell yourself short by using a word as vague and general as “experienced.” Get specific. Make a note of how long you’ve worked in a certain industry, how many clients you’ve had, what your sales were, and how much you increased profitability. Employers want to see results, not fluff.

Team player/people person/client friendly. These words are frequently overused, and while they describe skill sets almost every employer looks for, they’re also skills almost every applicant says he or she possesses on paper. Rather than put them in print, show how you embody those qualities. What groups/organizations are you involved in? Have you led a committee? What has your team accomplished together? If you’re someone who gravitates toward groups of people, then including this type of information will illustrate that you’re a team player.

Photos. We know—technically, this isn’t a word. But unless you’re applying for a job in which your face is an important part of the application process (for example, TV, acting, modeling, etc.) leave it off. It won’t help you land the position, and in some cases, employers are forced to ignore your because it contains information that can be used as discriminatory—that is age, sex, ethnicity—later in the process.

High School. Once you reach your sophomore year in college, delete all of your high school info on your résumé (school, GPA, activities, summer job, etc.). The only information you may want to consider including is an exceptional ACT or SAT score, and this is more relevant for new graduates.

Contact info. Keep it simple when including your contact info. Provide one phone number, one email address, and one street address.

Hobbies/interests. Leave them off! Your résumé is a professional, one-page guide to help an employer learn about your accomplishments. This document doesn’t need to include your love of hiking, scuba diving, or swing dancing. Employers will often look at a hobby section as filler. If you want to use your hobbies as a way to find common ground, list them on your LinkedIn profile, or find a good way to bring them up in your interview.

There you have it: A handy cheat sheet you can reference each time you write or update your résumé. By avoiding these commonly overused words and phrases, you can make better use of your résumé’s limited space to help a recruiter envision your skills, professional history, and how you’ll fit in to the new position and company.

How to Improve English

Thursday, December 4th, 2014
The importance of the English language cannot be overemphasized. Comfort with English is almost a prerequisite for success in the world today. Regardless of the industry, proficiency in English is an important factor in both hiring and promotion decisions.

A lot of us have studied English in school and are fairly comfortable with reading and writing. However, we hesitate while speaking because we feel that we lack the fluency and may make grammatical mistakes. We are afraid of speaking English in formal situations and we are quick to switch to our native language once we are in the company of our family and friends.

There is no quick fix when it comes to improving your command over a particular language. It always requires a lot of time and effort.

Here are EnglishLeap’s top ten tips for success in achieving proficiency and fluency in English:

  1. Do not hesitate. Talk to whoever you can. Decide among your circle of friends that you will only talk in English with each other. This way you can get rid of hesitation and also have your friends correct you when you are wrong.

  2. Start a conversation with strangers in English. Since you do not know them personally, you will feel less conscious about what they would feel about you.

  3. Maintaining a diary to record the events of your day is a great way topractice your writing skills. Take your time to use new words and phrases when you write in your diary.

  4. Read the newspaper. Read it aloud when you can. Concentrate on each word. Note down the words you don’t understand and learn their meanings. Try to use these words in your own sentences.

  5. Watch English movies and English shows on television. Initially, you can read the sub-titles to follow the conversation. As you practice more, you will realize that you are able to follow the conversation without needing to read the sub-titles.

  6. Set aside an hour every day to watch English news channels. This is one of the most effective ways of improving your comprehension.

  7. Podcasts are available on the internet. These are audio and video files and many of these can be downloaded for free. These are a great way to practice listening skills and develop an understanding of different accents.

  8. It is usually quite difficult for a beginner to understand the words of an English song as there is background music and the accent of the artist may be unfamiliar to the listener. Read the lyrics while you listen to the song and you will comprehend better. Once you start following the voice of a particular singer, you will find it much easier to understand the singer’s other songs too.

  9. Another effective way is to record your own voice and listen to it. You will notice hesitations and pauses. You may also notice that you make some grammatical mistakes while speaking that you do not make while writing. You must aim to improve and rectify these mistakes in subsequent recordings.

  10. Ask people who speak better for advice. There is no shame in seeking help especially if you are trying to improve yourself. Talk to them in English and ask them to correct you whenever you are wrong.
