There was a man who made a living selling balloons at a fair. He had all colors of
balloons, including red, yellow, blue, and green. Whenever business was slow, he would
release a helium-filled balloon into the air and when the children saw it go up, they all
wanted to buy one. They would come up to him, buy a balloon, and his sales would go up
again. He continued this process all day. One day, he felt someone tugging at his jacket.
He turned around and saw a little boy who asked, “If you release a black balloon, would
that also fly?” Moved by the boy’s concern, the man replied with empathy, “Son, it is not
the color of the balloon, it is what is inside that makes it go up.”

How to attend interview

Standard

All that hard work sending out resumes has finally paid off and you’ve been called in for a face-to-face job interview. Congratulations! This is an important next step in your job search. It’s also your only chance to make a lasting first impression.
On the day of your interview, sweating palms and stomach butterflies are to be expected. But you can reduce your stress level by knowing some common mistakes that interviewees make when meeting with potential employers — and avoiding them.

Here are 10 of the most common mistakes people make on job interviews:

  1. Not taking the interview seriously: Don’t make the mistake of thinking the interview is just a formality. Even if all the preliminaries have gone well, don’t be cavalier and start imagining how you’ll start spending your new salary. The biggest error you can make is to assume that, because you’ve gotten this far, the job is in the bag.
  2. Dressing down: How you present yourself during your initial meeting with a potential employer is very important, and your physical appearance can speak volumes to someone who is meeting you for the first time. Even if you know that the firm allows employees to wear jeans, don’t sabotage yourself by showing up to the interview in casual clothing. Err on the side of conservative and show up in neat, professional clothing, preferably a business suit.
  3. Not showing why you’re the best choice: Be familiar with the job description of the position you’re interviewing for so you can illustrate how your experience, abilities, and strengths are in line with the company’s needs. Many potential employers want to know why they should hire you specifically. Make it clear to them.
  4. Being too modest: Failing to talk yourself up during an interview is one of the most self-defeating mistakes you can make. This is not the time for humility, so sing your praises! Don’t be afraid to talk up everything you’ve accomplished, whether in school or in previous companies. This is your time to shine.
  5. Talking too much: Be careful not to talk over the interviewer. This meeting should be a two-way conversation, and many interviewees cover up their nervousness by blathering on. Sit calmly and listen carefully, answering questions thoughtfully.
  6. Focusing on the funds: Don’t start talking about money too soon into the interview. Focusing on your salary requirements and previous salary history right off the bat may cause you to reveal too much. While the topic of salary will certainly come up, follow the interviewer’ s lead. He or she may be saving that topic for a later conversation.
  7. Trash talking: Even if you hated your former boss or felt you were treated unfairly by your previous employer, a job interview is not the place to launch into a litany of complaints. Don’t go there. If you were laid off or fired from a previous position, be prepared with an explanation that puts a positive spin on the circumstances.
  8. Failing to ask questions: Your résumé may be impressive on paper, but employers also appreciate a candidate who can ask several intelligent questions during an interview. Prepare at least 3 or 4 questions in advance to ask the interviewer. Interviews are an exchange of information, and not having questions to ask can reveal a lack of preparation.
  9. Lack of enthusiasm: This is your first and sometimes only chance to showcase your personality. Don’t walk in announcing how you’re having a bad day. Be polite and upbeat. Show your enthusiasm for both the job and the opportunity to interview for it. And don’t forget to thank the person at the end of the interview!
  10. Forgetting the follow-up: Make sure to send a handwritten thank-you note or polite email to the interviewer expressing gratitude for his or her time and consideration. And while you don’t want to start calling the company on a daily basis, a phone call checking in a week after the interview is perfectly acceptable.

Resume writing

Standard

The most important step in securing a job is to get an interview call. A resume that stands out from others is needed to get that opportunity. Many job seekers make basic mistakes with their résumés – mistakes that often end up denying them the interviews they deserve. Though securing a job depends a lot on your abilities, presenting yourself in the best possible manner is imperative, and a résumé is the first step of that process. Keep the following things in mind when writing a résumé:

Length

Contrary to popular belief, a résumé does not necessarily fit in one page. Your résumé can be of any number of pages; the only rule that applies here is that the length should be appropriate, according to your qualifications, experience and achievements. If in doubt, follow the general rule that less than five years experience probably only requires one page.

Typing errors

A résumé has to be perfect. Proofread it over and over again. When you are sure it’s perfect, have others go through it and point out the mistakes. There should be no errors of spelling, grammar and vocabulary. Mistakes portray a casual approach and can ruin your chances of being called for an interview.

Easy reading

Spend some time working on the layout of the résumé. It should be designed in a way that makes it is easy to read and highlights your key strengths clearly. If your résumé is badly laid out, disorganised or hard to read, it will be discarded before the reader knows how qualified you are.

Project yourself

Think of a résumé as an advertisement for a product, only this time the product is you. Just like any other advertisement, on a résumé, positioning is everything. The person who receives your résumé will scan it quickly perhaps, often no longer than half-a-minute to determine whether you can help their company. Your résumé is the most effective tool in showing them that you can.

Many people do not compose a résumé that highlights their abilities effectively. They have problems charting out their strengths and matching them with the employers’ requirement. Every jobseeker has ‘buying motivators’ – contributions that you have made in your career that would encourage a company to hire you. Think about the areas in which you have made useful contributions to your previous jobs and bring out your achievements.

Right focus

Don’t start with what you want. Recruiters don’t like it because it focuses on the needs of the job seeker rather than the needs of the potential employer. Consider this statement: “Seeking a senior executive position with a progressive employer where I can contribute to the development of product brands and work with intelligent, dedicated people.” The employer does not care what you want. Instead, try using a statement that concisely explains what you have to offer. For instance something like: “Senior Executive with 10 years experience promoting product brand.” Now the reader can immediately see your value to the company. For even greater impact, modify this statement according to the post applied for, so that the employer immediately sees a match between his needs and your skills.

Specify your contributions

You can make your achievements more meaningful by providing specific details. Don’t say something vague like ‘contributed to company sales’. This says nothing about your actual contribution. Instead, be specific about what you did: ‘Conducted market analysis for the product to determine design and mechanics. Led changes to original design specifications despite initial developer objections. Received critical acclaim and sold over four lakh units’. This level of detail shows the employer the extent of your contributions and can expect what you will deliver in the future.

Outline achievements and responsibilities

Don’t provide a list of previous job responsibilities, which most employers already know about, without showing what results you achieved. Focus most of your résumé on the results you accomplished, not the regular duties of your job.

For example:

Made money for the company
Helped the company save money or reduce costs
Implemented processes that save time or increase work productivity
Improved company’s competitive advantage in the market
Enhanced corporate image or building company’s reputation in its industry

White lies

Resume integrity is critical. Many people admit to adding that little white lie to their resume, to make their case for that job just that little bit stronger. Maybe you changed your title to ‘Administration Manager’ even though you had no staff to supervise. Perhaps you omitted to tell them that you didn’t finish that degree. Employers have become more alert about resumes, and will cross check any tall claims, or anything that doesn’t sound plausible.

Are you too modest?

Too many people play down their achievements. While you should never exaggerate on a résumé, you should definitely take credit for the things you’ve accomplished. Some people feel uncomfortable boasting on paper, preferring to explain in an interview. But if your résumé doesn’t evoke interest, you may never get that opportunity.

Avoid irrelevant information

Don’t list your hobbies unless they directly support your qualifications for the position. Don’t delve into the details of your marital status or the number of children you have. Don’t mention political or religious volunteer work unless it directly relates to the position you are applying for. Any personal information runs the risk of turning the reader off.

When you send out your résumé, it must speak specifically about you. Your résumé has to make your sales pitch in a clear and compelling manner. Invest the time to make it exceptional and you will see an immediate increase in the response rate.
