During Job Search How to Nail The Social Interview

During Job Search How to Nail The Social Interview | Job Searching | Scoop.it

"Job seekers, listen up! Your interview doesn't begin when an employer calls you. It doesn't begin when you walk into an office. And it certainly doesn't begin after you've done all the talking."

 

"It likely begins before you even know it, through a simple online search to check out your presence. Essentially, you’re being “interviewed” online through your social networks — before the background check, before the phone call and before you have any sort of conversation with a potential employer."

John covers all 5 steps in the article in a concise fashion allowing you to consider the various ideas and whether they will work for you or not. No need to sign up for anything and/or navigate all over trying to find the steps.

 

The 5 step method looks to be a very solid way to get infront of Alumni from your school for informational interviews. Also recall LinkedIn already has a standard search setup to help you pinpoint who you might want to reach out to by location, by company, and by functional job area.

 

The LinkedIn alumni search is located here: http://www.linkedin.com/college/alumni

 

Note: For the search to work, remember to setup your college in LinkedIn first. (Log on, in main header bar, look under contacts drop down to find the link for your school once setup.)

Job Search: How To Focus with Less “What,” More “Why” | Job Searching | Scoop.it

"Your job search will be more successful if you focus less on what you'd like to do and more on why you're doing it."

 

"If we started thinking less about what day-to-day tasks we wanted to do while at work (the ‘what’) and reflected more on the things we wanted to achieve, accomplish or bring about (the ‘why’), we’d have a much easier time determining which field/industry we want to enter, companies we’d like to work for and jobs we’d like to apply for."

Rachel is definetly on the right path. The only small addition I would add is after you've decided on your why. Start looking for companies which match your why.

 

Don't just settle for any job, "if" there are oppertunites in companies which "fit you and your why".

 

Simon Sinek does a great Ted talk around the Why, How, and What. If you haven't seen it before, it is worth the time. It helps define the "why" in the article above as well as the companies you will pursue.

 

http://www.ted.com/talks/simon_sinek_how_great_leaders_inspire_action.html

 

During the job search, your skills and capabilities help you pintpoint the types of jobs you can add value. Howevever, if the job and the company is unable to fill your passion in life, your "why", it makes the days that much longer.

Do references matter in a job search?

Do references matter in a job search? | Job Searching | Scoop.it

When a company requests references on a job application, you might be tempted to skip it, thinking, "Doesn't my work history speak for itself? Won't my references just say good things about me? Do employers even call references?" However, a new CareerBuilder studyfinds that employers pay attention to what your references say. In fact, 69 percent of employers say they've changed their mind about a candidate after speaking with a reference.

 

The national study surveyed hiring managers, human-resources professionals and workers across industries and company sizes to find out what matters when it comes to references.

 

What hiring managers and employers know


References do matter to potential employers, and they come up earlier in the hiring process than you may think. According to the study, 80 percent of employers say they contact references when evaluating potential employees. Sixteen percent of those employers will contact references even before they call the candidate for a job interview.
