Smart ways to set yourself up for career growth.


It is amazing how people fear responsibility. At times, even the responsibility to take charge of their own destiny. You get amazed when you see people evading responsibility in the work-place, yet the working is about taking responsibility.

The work-place is meant to be the one place where you excel by creatively and energetically driving whatever responsibility has been assigned to you. It is the place where you ought to seek to make your contribution and build your career, even as you contribute to the overall institutional and public good.
Does this sound lofty? No. You have probably started giving a hundred and one reasons why this is not possible. You could be saying things like, “My boss is a hindrance.” You could be blaming ‘my subordinates,’ ‘the work environment and organization culture,’ or giving a myriad of other excuses.

Secrets to a successful job search.


I remember a few months ago getting an email from a student at one of our local universities asking what are the secrets of getting a job, any job. My response was that he should not only be looking for just any job but rather searching for a job that you have admired and are passionate about. If you remember an article we did about ‘the truth about the corporate world’ then you can appreciate that the job market is a big monster if you can avoid then you will be better off. If you get capital, please start a business you are passionate about. I am not advising you away from job hunting but sometimes even to get that capital you need to work.

Everyone looks forward to the day he will be independent but you must start somewhere and that is why today we want to share the secrets of a successful job search. If you already have a job it may be very hard for you to dedicate many hours to a job search but if you are not, then you have all the time for getting the right job. Whether you have a job or not then this advice is for you. Searching for a job is not easy in this economic climate and thus you need a very positive mindset. Ever heard the phrase that we are what we think?

Here are a few pointers to a successful job search:

The gravest mistakes in CVs and secrets to getting a job.

In the current job hunting industry, you will not be hated if you are obsessed about resumes. Who wouldn't? Currently, if your CV is wrong, then no job for you. The job application competition is at its highest. Just as an example, one of our many clients who advertise with us put up a job for a senior accountant and about 608 candidates applied. Just imagine, there was only one vacancy and if you are not the crème de la crème, then woe unto you. So, what is this grave mistake we make in our CVs and what are the secrets to getting that coveted job?

Let me tell you, there's so much to get right: functional versus chronological, objective statements (pros and cons), key words, templates, references, font size, white space, action verbs, employment gaps, placement and style of bullets, typos, and whether to include hobbies (probably a "no" on that last one).

To stand out, you must be outstanding.

The greatest threat to where you can be is where you have been. Nothing can create failure like success. A lot of minds stagnate after their first taste of achievement. They get comfortable and settle down to enjoy their success. As they do so, they fail to realize that yesterday’s breakthrough could be today’s relic. Are you establishing breakthroughs or nurturing relics?

At a change workshop last week, I showed participants pictures of the very first mobile phone. Well, there was nothing really mobile about it except the fact that it did not have wires connecting it to the wall. It was really big and heavy. We then went through the evolution of mobile phones until we got to today’s smart phones. The difference gave testimony to the fact that you will never know how bad good is until you experience better. Those old phones were once great. Today they are relics.

A Winning Cover Letter: The worst mistake ever.

Chances are you went through several drafts of your CV before you submitted it to a prospective employer. You wrote and rewrote each line several times and had friends, family, even strangers proofread it or you even had a professional firm do it for you. But if you send it off without enclosing a cover letter, your hard work may never be seen. I recently had to read an email application for someone who had one line as a
cover letter. It really left me wondering about the seriousness of such a candidate.

Most HR managers, directors, recruiters or other decision makers prefer a good cover letter attached to a CV. Think of it as the first chance to stand out in a sea of applicants. Your cover letter, if done well, tells the hiring manager you are qualified for the job and a serious candidate. Perhaps more important is the opportunity to show your personality.

Too much work without play makes Jack a dull boy.

Quite often, you come across the workaholic who never takes time off. His or her entire universe is built around the workplace. Even in social conversation, this person only talks about work. This person never disengages from that universe – not physically, intellectually nor emotionally. So to speak, he has invested everything in work.

Each morning he is in the office latest 6:30 and works throughout the day and sometimes into the night. He demonstrates a compulsive sense of belonging and even proprietary entitlement. Every employer wants dedication. Yet dedication to the workplace is very unhealthy if it degenerates into some form of maniacal obsession. It can be harmful to you, to your work, your colleagues and eventually to your organization. It is a simple law of supply and demand. If the supply is overdone, you will certainly hit the point of diminishing utility of returns. The more you invest in the effort, the less productive you become.
