Great article from the New York Times about how technology--especially mobile--is making its way more and more into school curriculums. An encouraging article for m-learning, for sure!

How do you interview for a job when you don't meet all of the qualifications?  By the way -- I don't suggest that you apply for any positions that you are not qualified for.  Instead I am writing about job postings where you meet most of the qualifications, and fall slightly short in one area.

 

First of all kudos to you for landing that interview in spite of not having all of the qualifications!  You probably did an amazing job at repackaging your experience, skills, and strengths in your resume and targeted it to the job, industry, and company. You most likely took the time out to write a meaningful cover letter as well.

 

Whether you took the time to retool your resume or were resourceful enough to find the right person to hand walk your resume to the hiring manager - Bravo you have made it to the interview…Now what?

 

Preparation is key!  Go through the following questions:

 

1.  Pretend that everyone applying for the position has much more experience, skills, and expertise than you do.  Now ask yourself what do you have besides your experience, skills, and expertise that would make the hiring manager hire you over other candidates.  

 

It may be that you identified areas such as:  your work ethic, initiative, or project management skills?  Think about how these strengths will add value to the position, team, and company.

  

2.  Go through the job posting bullet by bullet and write down all of the areas where you meet the experience and skill requirements, and be prepared to respond to specific questions surrounding those areas.

 

3.  Take a second pass through the job posting and identify the areas where you don't meet the experience and skill requirements. 

 

a.  Write down projects, companies, internships where you have devoted the time and learned in that specific area.

 

For example if they require 3-5 years of experience and you have two years, it may be that you have done similar work in other industries or your internship that will fulfill the 3-5 year requirement.

 

Sample response for do you have 3-5 years of experience in ______?  You could say something like this, "I have over 2 years of experience working on projects in this field, and I have an additional year and a half experience that I gained together with my internship and _____.

 

b.  Be prepared to respond to what you will do or what you are doing to develop in that skill.  For example if you are asked if you have worked on ____ software instead of saying no. 

 

You could say, I am familiar with this software it is similar to two different ones that I have worked on in my current role.  I am currently learning the functionality on Lynda.com or if hired for the position there is an on-line class that begins on Monday.  I am confident that I would be able to hit the floor running if hired.

 

Hope these two bits of tips helps you in your interview!  Take it from a person who applied and landed a job for a critical position where Union experience was required when she had zero experience. 

 

Regardless of what you do, believe in yourself, do the homework, and walk into the interview confident and prepared to make the best first impression.

 

Until we talk again…Ace that interview, and PS - Live on Purpose!

Dette publique et "loi Rothschild" : le silence des médias

Dette publique et "loi Rothschild" : le silence des médias | sustainable economy | Scoop.it
LE PLUS. On parle beaucoup de crise et de dette en ce moment, mais de quelle manière ? Le journaliste Olivier Bonnet reproche aux médias de relayer la théorie libérale, sans s'interroger sur des étapes fondamentales comme celle de la loi Pompidou-Giscard en 1973.

 

C'est le point aveugle du débat : la dette publique est une escroquerie ! En cause, la loi Pompidou-Giscard de 1973 sur la Banque de France, dite "loi Rothschild", du nom de la banque dont était issu le président français, étendue et confortée ensuite au niveau de l'Union européenne par les traités de Maastricht (article 104) et Lisbonne (article 123).

 

D'une seule phrase découle l'absolue spoliation dont est victime 99% de la population : "Le Trésor public ne peut être présentateur de ses propres effets à l’escompte de la banque de France".

No doubt about it,  if you have been out of work for a period of time you will come face-to-face with some interviewers who are skeptical. 

 

So how do you combat those skeptics?  Being prepared will help you to answer the questions around why you left your last job, and what you have been doing since your last position in a confident and professional manner.  I even suggest to get ready for the unintentional skeptical gestures that you might experience from an interviewer. 

 

"Why did you leave your last job" question:

Potential interviewer concerns may be -- Is there a performance reason why this candidate was selected for the re-organization?

 

My advice:  Ensure that the interviewer understands that it was not an isolated situation.  For example, "Mrs. Jones, I was part of the ____ division for ABC Corporation and the entire division in the call center was outsourced, or I was part of the Florida satellite office for ABC Corporation and over 50% of the ___ employees were impacted." 

 

In regards to how many jobs you have applied for or what you have been doing since you have been unemployed.

 

My suggestion:  As the article says, volunteering for projects is wonderful.  Also, you could take classes to fill in the skills gap and to set yourself apart from other candidates. 

 

You could take local classes, self teach yourself on lynda.com, and even take some free certificate courses on Edx.  The classes are free and you could build your knowledge and strategically place on your resume courses from MIT, Caltech and more.

 

So when an interviewer asks what you have been doing with your time you can respond with I have taken the time to take courses on business with MIT, etc.

 

I know that it is not easy, and the intent of this community and my blog is to equip you with information, skills, and tools to land you the job. 

 

Please let me know if you have any questions, and what I can do to help.

 

PS - Live on Purpose!
