All job interviews can be hard, but more commonly people find telephone interviews to be a greater challenge. This doesn’t have to be the case, telephone interviews are EASIER then face-to-face interviews because you cannot see the interviewer, you can actually pass your job interview wearing your PJs. To pass any interview successfully you need to prepare as preparation is the key for successfully job hunting

So, you’re applying for a job. You seek written representation for your resume (well, you); and yes, that all dreaded cover letter is a requirement. Letters can be used with varying purposes in mind; introduction, explanation, instruction, and solicitation. As you see, even cover letters for hiring purposes can be used for a wide range of purposes, but they all boil down to one element: selling. Nearly everything in life is based on sales in one way or another – whether you’re selling a product, a service, a creative property … and yes, yourself.
Why so much buzz about a simple letter? Well, the success of a cover letter will determine whether or not you’ll have the opportunity to demonstrate during the interview and prove your worthiness for a second interview or to fulfill the job itself.
The Sales Process
The sales process in its simplest terms is a four stage process, which can be summed up as PPPC:Continue reading

Job Title: Project Director
Minimum Recruitment Standards
Application forms are a bug bear for everybody, from the poor applicant who has to trawl through all the guidance to the poor interviewer who has to read the same thing over and over and over again. As an experienced manager in a large organization I have the unenviable task of frequently participating in the recruitment process for my own staff and supporting others in their recruitment. Below I am going to outline some simple steps that could ease the process for everyone involved…
Firstly, lets start with a question – who do you think the application form is there to help? Is it:
a) The applicant so that they can demonstrate why they are suitable for the advertised position
b) The person doing the recruitment or
c) None of the above?
The answer, obviously, is a mixture of A and B, but it may be a surprise to some that from the point of view of the employer it is definitely more b than a.
In these times of increContinue reading

Innovative organizations cannot sustain their achievements without fresh ideas and new approaches that are often brought in by new hires. Companies that foster innovation need not just highly skilled workforce; they need highly engaged employees – people who love to work there, who are motivated to be creative, and whose personal values fit well the organizational culture. Dan Pink, in his talk about engagement and motivation in the work place, describes three main elements of motivation – autonomy, mastery, and purpose. Autonomy motivates us because we all want freedom and flexibility in our work, mastery gets us going because we naturally want to get better at what we do, and purpose is the most vital component in any of our creative projects – there is nothing more discouraging than working on something that has no meaning, lacks direction, or doesn’t have any real need. Highly motivated and engaged people, who are driven by those elements, are bestContinue reading
