The New Year signifies a shot at a New You – a chance to hit the reset button, so to speak, and realign yourself in a direction that leads to better health, more exercise, or greater knowledge.  The problem is, junk food tastes so much better than Brussels sprouts, you don’t have the time to keep up with all the daily news sources and stay on top of the New York Times Bestseller List, and that one-year gym membership loses its shine in February.  It can be hard to stay on top of your goals, but if you make the effort when it comes to your job search, it really will pay off.  Moreover, if you set short-term, concrete milestones for yourself, you’ll be more likely to stick it out.  Here are some ideas:

  • Resolve to build out your professional network.  Hold yourself accountable and vow to meet a certain number of people – say, two – per week.  You could also decide that you will attend one to two networking events per month.  Picking a number and sticking to it is important, and it’s also a helpful way to track the people you meet and when you met them.
  • Promise to yourself that you’re going to really make your job search a full time job, and set a goal for yourself as to how many jobs you will apply to each week.  If it helps to break it down to a specific number of jobs per day, do that; just make sure you set a goal and don’t fall below it.
  • Decide to have a happier, healthier year by taking up a hobby or volunteering.  It’s hard to sit in front of a computer all day and search for a job, so commit yourself to an activity or join a group that meets once a week, and make it a part of your routine.  It’s important to get out and remain social, so that you don’t get too worn out by your job search and lose steam.
  • Commit yourself to learning a new skill or subject matter.  Use your free time to broaden your mind, and consider taking up something that will allow you to bring more to the table at a new job, so that you can become a more attractive candidate to hiring managers. Were you always hoping to one day learn Spanish or HTML? Now is the time to do it.
  • If 2010 was a rough year for you as far as job search goes, consider seeking the aid of professional services that will look over your resume or coach you on how to perform in an interview.  Perhaps this is something to add to your holiday wish list for those who have no idea what to get you.
  • Make a resolution to build your online presence and leverage social media channels to get a job.  Sign up for various social and professional networking sites, and craft an image that you want employers to see.  Consider starting a blog that serves as an online portfolio of work or as a further networking tool, and make sure that you update it once a week.
  • Perhaps the most important resolution is to find a way to stay positive, even though you may be feeling anxious about not having a job.  A positive person will be more productive, will exude enthusiasm and confidence to hiring managers, and will be more likely to land a job that they enjoy.  Do what you can to keep your head up, whether it’s yoga, a weekly movie night, time with your kids, or anything else that relaxes you and keeps you happy.

Staying on top of New Year’s resolutions isn’t always easy; but if you really think them through, establish small milestones for yourself, and follow a set course, you’ll effectively end up where you want to be!

Happy New Year,

Doostang Success — Interviews from Many Fortune 500 Companies

Heather

JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY 2008
SENIOR STRATEGY ANALYST – BOOZ ALLEN HAMILTON

I recently resigned from my investment banking position in Hong Kong to move back to the US in search for a career change into corporate strategy. My friends had mentioned that Doostang was a great tool for recent grads and I decided to give it a shot with a 3 month membership.

In the first week alone I received several responses and shortly thereafter I was conducting nearly all of my job queries via Doostang. I really appreciated the feature that alerts me when an employer downloads my resume, which allows me to follow up with those companies.

This site definitely contains higher quality job opportunities than other recruiting websites, including even my university career site.

Using a better filtered site allowed me to be more productive with my time and helped me to better target my ideal job.

Initially I was afraid that seeking a career change would be difficult since I have limited experience and I was seeking a career change in a difficult economic environment.

However, Doostang helped me to obtain interviews from many Fortune 500 companies across many different sectors and all these interviews ended up being an extremely important self-discovery process that helped me to narrow down the type of job function and industry that fit my personality and career goals.

Doostang really made my career transition much easier than it otherwise would have been and I have recommended it to other friends who are in the job market. Thank you Doostang!

When it comes to the job search process, job seekers often have false impressions about how things work.  The interview is no exception, and understanding a few common misconceptions about the process can help you do a much better job – and hopefully put your mind at ease!  Read on for 3 big interview myths:

The Most Qualified Candidate Gets the Job

Okay, this is untrue for a myriad of reasons, with jobs going to individuals who know people on the inside, to those who simply reach out at the right time, and so on.  Bear this in mind during your interview, because it’s important to understand that you need to be professional, personable, and on your A Game at all times.  You can be the most fabulous job candidate on paper and in reality, but if you don’t bring confidence to the table, the job could go to someone who had better people skills and impressed the interviewer.  Conversely, if you know your resume may be lacking in certain areas, make up for it by giving a winning interview.

The Interviewer is Prepared for…the Interview

There are several reasons why an interviewer may not be prepared for an interview.  For example, this could be their first time interviewing a candidate and they may be nervous.  Or they could be bogged down with extra work – perhaps the reason they are hiring someone in the first place – and so they haven’t devoted proper time to preparing for the interview.  Thus, the more prepared you are, the easier the interview is for everyone, and the better impression you create.  Decide what you want to tell the interviewer beforehand, and do your best to find ways to mention your past achievements and what you can bring to the table.

The Interviewer will Ask All the Necessary Questions

Again, the person interviewing you might be distracted and might miss some important points. Or you might be speaking with a hiring manager who doesn’t know as much about the job as the person you will be working for, so the interviewer may not ask all the appropriate questions.  Thus, it is your job to bring up skills and qualifications you have that are specifically pertinent to the job, so that the person interviewing you can report these back to the individual who makes the final decision.  If they are the person who makes the final call, make the choice easier for them by addressing every aspect of the job description in a way that paints you as the perfect candidate.  There may be things that you want to bring up that the interviewer never asks about – if this is the case, don’t brush them aside.  Find ways to work these points into the conversation.

Interviews can be nerve-racking for individuals on both sides of the table.  And at the end of the day, an interviewer is just another human being.  If you can enter the conversation confident, prepared, and personable, you’re sure to impress.

Until next time,

Doostang News November 29: Lessons Black Friday Can Teach You About Your Job Search

Ah, Black Friday.  A time for holiday shopping’s savviest to roll out in the masses and line outside our local shopping malls and electronic stores well before preceding Thanksgiving dinners have come to an official close.  A time of weary cashiers, bulldozing mothers, and screeching children; of out-of-this-world markdowns on plasma TV’s, 4-for-1 specials, and feuds over wool sweaters.  This, my friends, is the plight – and joy – of the early bird out to catch that proverbial holiday worm.  And what of that proverbial career worm?  Let’s take a look at a few lessons we can take away from the most insane Friday of the year and apply it to our crazy quest for a new job!

Get There Early

Every smart shopper knows that the best deals go to those at the front of the line.  And every savvy job seeker knows that it’s in your best interest to stay on top of deadlines and to get your resume in early.  It’s easy to scour job boards and then put off applying to jobs you find for a few days; but remember that great opportunities go fast.  If you find something worthy of applying to, apply as soon as you can, before the position goes to someone else.  It’s also in your best interest to get your resume and cover letter in front of a hiring manager before a lot of other people do, as hiring managers tend to form an idea early on of whom they want to bring on for the job.  Getting your name in the final round can be a much harder sell once a manager has found other people they like.

Do Your Homework

The best way to get the most bang out of your buck is to figure out what you want, circle the corresponding deals in the newspaper, and head straight for the prize when you enter the store.  Likewise, the most efficient way to search for a job is to know what it is that you want, locate the appropriate openings, and focus on a game plan for applying – and hopefully securing – the reward!

Don’t Push and Shove

Being an effective shopper is all about keeping your cool.  The moment you get caught up in sparring with others, you’ll trip and fall and the crowd will pass you by – and probably trample you in the process.  As in shopping, handle yourself with grace and poise in the search for a new job.  Treat all people with respect, whether they be the people you are networking with, the people who are in charge of hiring you, or the people looking for your help in finding their next opportunity – remember, there may come a time when you need to ask for a favor in return.

Get In and Get Out

If you find yourself at an empty electronics shelf or clothing bin, don’t dwell on it.  Move to the next item on your list and get the most out of your day.  Likewise, don’t get disheartened if the perfect opportunity seems to come along, and you just don’t make the cut.  More than one prospect will arise, and it’s up to you to maximize your chances of securing one by sticking to a game plan and moving on when something doesn’t work out.

Whether you love or dread Black Friday, the important thing is that you have a good time and do what works best for you.  Everyone has a different shopping style, just as everyone has a different approach to searching for a job.  So whether you like to get in there early or come in at the eleventh hour, devise a strategy that allows you to get exactly what it is you want, before the good stuff sells out.

Happy holidays,

The Doostang Team
