  • Be consistent: You may be searching for a while now without any luck but just because you didn’t get that interview call doesn’t mean that you should give up. Continue your search and continue applying to opportunities that suit you best, you never know the best one could just be your next one. You may have to give up some of your precious time, but it will surely pay off and save you time somewhere down the road.
  • Take advantage of Social networking: While you are at it, our Recruitment experts suggest creating social media profiles on Facebook and LinkedIn.

How Social Media can land you a Job

Social media has emerged as a key player in the job search process today.

Social Media Networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+ allow employers to get a glimpse of who you are outside the traditional confines of a resume, or even an interview. Social media sites offer job seekers the opportunity to learn about companies they’re interested to work in; connect with their former and current employees; and know about current job openings instantly, among other things.

This is the reason why more and more job seekers are becoming highly active on social networking sites on a daily basis, and most employers now utilize these sites in their hiring process.

So how can you as a job seeker tap into the power of social media to make searching for jobs easier? Our experts at Career Marshal have gathered all the tips you need to use every platform out there to your advantage:

  1. What accounts to have:

Our experts think that every job seeker should at least have a LinkedIn account, and a Facebook or Twitter to show that you’re a real person. Beyond that, you should consider social networking sites that are really important for your industry.

  1. Always use your real name:

It can be quite trendy to pick a catchy nickname or handle when making your profile on a site but, as much as possible, try using your real name. This looks more professional and also implies that people will be able to find and scan your profiles when they search for your name. If your name is a rather common one or if you often go by a nickname, in that case, choose a consistent name and use the same across all platforms, and try to include your real name somewhere on each account.

  1. Include your profiles in your resume:

Your social media profiles are a great representation of you and you’re personality, so make sure they’re out there! Try to include your Twitter handle on your resume, also mention your industry-specific network, and tell your recruiter where to find you on your business card or your email signature. If you’ve done the work to make your social media profiles look good and professional, don’t be shy about sharing them!

Do’s and Don’ts for applying a Job Online

Online Job portals like Career Marshal make it very easy for you to apply for a job online. We have a system to keep your resume in tow, so that it is easy to submit. But your online job seeker profile plays a very important role in getting you noticed by the recruiter’s eye. That’s why our resume experts at Career Marshal are offering some Do’s and Don’ts to effectively guide you through the process of applying for jobs online:

  1. Check out the company’s website before you apply.

Recruiters like to see that you have a special interest in their company. They’re likely to pursue a candidate who has a history with a similar industry and also they know why they’re applying now. Take the time to learn the company’s mission and values. Then, try incorporate these into your job history and your resume. This will make sure that you stand out among other applicants who applied without doing their homework.

  1. Tailor your resume for every job you apply online

We cannot stress enough on the importance of including key words from the job description on the posting in your resume. Most recruiters receive hundreds of resumes for every job posted. They simply don’t have the time to go through each and every detail of all resumes, therefore, they just look for keywords that match their job requirements, in your resume. Having included keywords, instantly makes you stand out from the rest of the candidates.

Also, if there is anything that needs to be manually filled in, make sure you don’t miss them out. It is very unprofessional to leave out any blank unfilled sections in your online job application and there are chances that the recruiter will totally rule you out.

  1. Add your updated LinkedIn profile:

With growing age of the use of social media, LinkedIn is quickly becoming one of the prerequisites of any job profile or resume. It is essential to have a LinkedIn profile, this makes sure that you look seriously professional to the recruiter. But before you like it, make sure that your profile is job search worthy and well updated. Your profile picture should also look professional, rather than the one taken during vacation.

  1. Get Professional resume services:

With a fast-paced life writing a well updated resume in accordance with your career goals could be a very challenging task. We therefore recommend hiring professional resume writing services from Career Marshal to make sure your resume is top notch. We make sure that your resume is professional that lands you a job instantly.

The Importance of On-The-Job Training

Employees are often trained away from where they work, whether it’s down the office space or on the other side of the country. This traditional approach puts a wall between “what employees learn and what they do”. This is where On-the-job training can step in and break down this wall.

Training presents a big opportunity to expand the knowledge base of the employees; however, many employers find the development opportunities very expensive. Employees also miss out on the time that they can spend working, while they are busy attending training sessions, which in turn delays the project deadlines. Despite all potential setbacks, on the job training provides both the company and the employees with benefits that make the cost and time a worthwhile investment.

Learners and teachers work shoulder to shoulder to develop a feeling of chasing the same goal when training on the job. The training then becomes something not simply given to employees, but something in which they love to participate. The employees can give immediate feedback about what they don’t understand and/or offer suggestions about how to improve certain processes.

At Career Marshal, our experts believe that just recruitment is not enough, employee retention is another challenge faced by recruiters. This is where on-the-job training also improves retention. The in-situation experience helps an employee strengthen recall of information in a way that classroom learning can’t do thus, making the working environment more fun.

When learning and everyday work are combined together, the employee’s mind is processing and associating the office environment with the skills that are being developed while training.

Our experts recommend the following blending classroom work with on-the-job training:

  • Message: On-the-job training is one of the most effective ways of training when employees play an active role. Most offices send this message by asking for participation and, also by listening when employees share their thoughts.
  • Process: One important part of this type of training is also to bring employees together every day to discuss a point that was covered in training. This should be more of a huddle than a meeting, a short conversation like this makes training a part of their routine work.
  • Tools: New technologies can help offices in integrating teaching into their everyday activities. Such tools put training guidance at the employees’ finger tips; and also lets them look up key points when their jobs requires it.

According to a a recent study by our experts, employees who have access to training and development programs in their organisations have the advantage over employees in other companies who are left to look for training opportunities on their own. All investment done by the company in training, shows the employees that they are valued. Training creates a supportive workplace and employees learn things that they wouldn’t have otherwise known about or sought out to learn themselves. They feel appreciated and challenged through training opportunities and in turn this leads to more satisfaction toward their jobs.

Our experts suggest that organizations that deliver a clear message and use good processes and training tools can break the wall between the employees learning process and their everyday tasks at work. When learning and work then come together, the goals of training and that of the organization become the same.

Make a lasting Impression on your first day at work

First impressions are always very important, especially if it’s your first day at a new job or more importantly if it’s your first job. It is quite natural to feel worried and anxious about new work culture and new colleagues or bosses. The nervousness comes from a fear of being judged. Nobody wants to be thought of as being inferior in any way, particularly on the first day of work.

Starting your day off on the right foot is essential as it sets tone for the next few weeks of interaction and engagement with your peers at work.  Since your first day is more of a make or break kind of a deal, it becomes almost imperative to create a positive first impression.

Our experts at Career Marshal have a few pointers for you to make sure that you make a lasting impression at work:

  • Dress appropriately: Try not to not over-dress, but at the same time do not under-dress either. We recommend checking with your HR beforehand as to what kind of office dress code is followed and try to pick your clothes accordingly.
  • Be on time: Our experts can’t stress enough the importance of punctuality. Time is of great value to everyone and people are often judged by how they respect others’ time. Be sure to reach your office and all meetings on time, if not earlier.
  • Have an optimistic attitude: Everyone likes a person who has a smile, a radiant personality, and a positive attitude. This is exactly what is needed for a lasting impression. Try being enthusiastic, energetic, and charming about the new opportunity and do not forget to reveal the same from your body language.
  • Team building: When at your new job, make quick efforts to know everyone and introduce yourself to them as well. Try to focus on the critical elements of team playing, i.e., loyalty, trust, taking initiatives, and working together. And avoid gossiping at all costs.
  • Take notes: During your first few weeks, you are bound to be overwhelmed with more information than you can process at one time. It is a wonderful idea to pen down everything and keep these notes handy in case of confusion.
  • Work with commitment: Try being proactive and volunteer to do even the smallest of jobs. Performing these odd jobs with utmost commitment will make a good impression on your bosses.
  • Communicate: It is believed that more communication is better than no or little communication. During the first few days of your new job, you are bound to have tons of questions. It’s better to leave your manager’s desk with all queries answered than to keep coming back, which could get a bit annoying.

At Career Marshal, we try to make sure we present you with the best career advice, so that you can shine in your workplace. From finding you the best career move to guiding you through your daily tasks at work, we are here at every step of your career.
