Job application where they are not recruiting

This is probably the first thing you will think of immediately after you finish higher learning. Locally we normally hear people talking of ‘dropping my CVs’ or ‘tarmac king’ and you may think this is only common among first time job seekers but wait till you get your first job, you will realize that this is common industry practice. Whether you have a job or don’t, this article is meant for you. While looking for a job you may want to give your CV to a friend or two who work in a specific company that you want to work for. So are you looking for a career or job opportunity? Is the career of your dreams eluding you? 

Job Searching or Career Change?

Such a situation may arise if you are without a job at the moment. It could also be that circumstances at your present job are driving you mad, and you just can't wait for a career change. People in such stages of their career often have the notion that the more jobs they apply for, the better are their chances of success in their job search. But there is a catch: is it worth applying to employers who are not recruiting at the moment? It is a question that haunts many desperate job seekers. 

The big secret to a successful interview: power and influence

Power and influence are commonly associated with political circles but in simple terms it means practicing authority and control on a subject. Did you know that this is a very important aspect of an interview? If you have been a keen follower of our articles, then by now you know that you can influence the outcome of an interview. If you really want a job and you have all the tenets that are required to nail the interview, then the ball is in your court. Today let us look at how you have the power to influence the outcome of an interview and if you have enough confidence then any job you want will be yours. Do not be surprised that even people already in the job market do not posses this very important aspect.

The classical thinking is that in an interview situation the interviewer has the authority and the power and the interviewee is the weaker one. Yet, the truth of the matter is that the situation is quite different. The interviewer controls the length of the interview, the questions asked and his/her own behavior, but the interviewer has no control over the outcome of the interview. The interviewer does not have in-depth prior knowledge about the job applicant, his/her past performance, his/her salient characteristics, is he/she a team player, etc.

9 reasons you won’t be getting an interview soon.

How many times have you thought you have the right qualifications for a job only to never hear from the hiring manager about the CV and cover letter you submitted? Might you be falling into these common traps?
1.                   You only focus on the Googles of the world: Companies that grab headlines such as Google, Coca Cola, East African Breweries Limited, Kenya Airways and so on can be exciting places to work in. So are many other organizations you have never heard of. Big companies usually receive thousands of CVs for each opening. Why not consider exploring opportunities with small and mid-sized organizations? After all, they make up the majority of businesses in the country and can sometimes have good offers. The point is, it is good to have Google on your sights as your dream employer, but also keep your eyes open to other opportunities.

How to impress an interviewer and land that job

Candidates' experience and credentials, as detailed in the resume, are most often the frequently used criteria for determining which job applicants are deserving of a personal interview. Ultimately, though, the hiring decision is going to be heavily based upon the candidates' performance in the interview and their value to the organization. To impress an interviewer, you have to be able to distinguish yourself from other candidates and be prepared to 'sell' your qualifications to the interviewer. How can you do this?

Present a polished professional image

Remember that professional companies are looking to hire professional individuals, not the beach bum who just shook the loose sand from his hair.

The 411 about a job interview

We have gone through many interview discussions but this topic will never be enough. If you are very careful, you need to live in the 21st century which means that you need to be very dynamic. I remember there was an article we carried in our site about being dynamic. Basically it is changing with the changing times. If you saw things yesterday, then you can support me that they are not the same today. If you look for a picture of the first mobile phone, you won’t believe how far the human race has evolved. The interview has also evolved and if you don’t believe it, pray you do not have an interview with me.

A good HR executive will engage an applicant in an interview and if the candidate is tensed, then it can also be his/ her role to relax the atmosphere. All of us agree that getting the first big job interview can be extremely nerve-wracking especially to students or even for an experienced individual. Excitement for the opportunity mixes with the fear of messing up what could potentially be something that can build or destroy a career.

To help you avoid a professional faux pas right off the bat, we've put together some consolidated practical advice on how to make sure you'll be a candidate interviewers can't resist:

Your CV should never miss…….

Have you ever looked at two companies offering the same product always come up with new marketing strategies, advertisements and promotions all with the aim of getting new clients and getting more market share. Well your CV, just like a product needs to compete with the thousands of other people sending in their documents. The job market is tough and it's getting tougher. Your CV is your No. 1 marketing tool and it may not be doing its job and that is getting you an interview.

One reason may be a lack of time. With the increased competition for jobs and more applicants, employers don't spend a lot of time reading any one CV. I must admit, a CV gets about 20 to 30 seconds of time for someone to read through and as I explain to most people. If a CV doesn’t appeal, then am definitely not going further. Right? If I have to scramble to get information, then am not going to bother. That's not much time to score.
