SOFT SKILL: Releasing Negativity

You may ask yourself what this really has to do with your job search? Shouldn’t this be listed under personal growth or counseling? Being negative can destroy your morale while searching for your job. Being negative can sabotage your new position once you’ve been hired. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a positive attitude in the midst of your trials and troubles? Don’t allow your negativity to keep you from having hope or from reading today’s article. When searching for a job, you need all the encouragement you can get. You might have others around who are cheering you on, but once you become the main cheerleader in your camp, your job search efforts and success rate will increase dramatically. You must’ve heard by now the definition of insanity, “doing the same thing over and over but expecting a different result”. Begin today to do things differently from the past and continue to expect a different, “better than ever” result!

What is a Behavioral Interview?

A “behavioral interview” or a “situational interview” is one in which you are asked to give a specific time that something occurred between you and a co-worker or customer concerning the topic of the question. Many state agencies will use this format and other employers may as well. The idea is that past experience and responses are a good predictor of future action. Today, we are providing you a link to a video posted by Soaring Career titled, “Successful interview #10: Behavioral-based interview questions”

Transforming the Temporary Employment Position to Permanent

The latest research of our current economic outlook indicates more employers are hiring staff through temporary agencies and the practice is becoming more standard. This can be a good way of finding a position for both parties. On one hand, you as a temporary employee have the opportunity to investigate the “lay of the land” so to speak in order to determine if this is a good fit for you. On the other hand, the employer also has the same opportunity. Whether you’re in a position to select this as a possible permanent position from a standpoint of finding this is your dream job, or you just need a job and this is better than most, it is important to know how to navigate your days to put yourself in the best position. Tom Lowery, Entrepreneur, Author and Corporate Training Specialist, offers up the article, “9 Tips for Making a Temporary Job Permanent”
