Clues for determining whether you got the job

Globe and Mail - Jan 5, 2012

By: Julie Labrie

The question In a job interview, I let it slip that I find my current job “boring.” Do you think this will hurt my chances of getting hired? Earlier, when I was asked why I wanted a career change, I said I was looking for opportunities to apply my research skills. I'm not sure what's more important, what I said first, or The Answer While it’s human nature to review your responses after an interview, try not to over-analyze every detail. There are simply too many variables at play to definitively predict an outcome. Having said that, ...

Turning a career rut into a stepping stone

Globe and Mail - Dec 30, 2011

By: Katie Bennett

  The question I am stuck in career rut. I am a recent university graduate and I have left a job in operations for a plumbing wholesale company which I enjoyed very much. I worked as junior project manager and I was involved in many company projects and acquisitions. I loved this job but there were things that forced me to leave. I had been hired as an administrative assistant and then promoted to project manager, but I could not get rid of my administrative duties. Thus, I had worked tons of overtime doing ...

Don’t rush a job change

Reuters - Nov. 23, 2011

By: Reuters

Hunting for a new job should be strategic and thoughtful, not merely a knee-jerk reaction to your terrible boss, evil co-workers and other factors, says Harvard Business Review. Bad boss, dysfunctional co-workers, slowing business: Multiple things can make you run screaming from a job. But those circumstances often apply artificial urgency to a job hunt. Panic may make cause you to skimp on researching potential employers or fail to look inside your organization for more promising opportunities. Slow down. Consider how your feelings would change if your incompetent boss left or if the company ...

How an ethnic-sounding name may affect the job hunt

Globe and Mail - Nov 18, 2011

By: Wallace Immen

You may have a string of prestigious degrees and years of experience in Canada, but potential employers may never get that far into your résumé if your name sounds foreign, a new study has found. An underlying reason appears to be subconscious discrimination, the researchers suggest. “What we think is happening is recruiters have to go through piles of résumés very quickly. If they see an unfamiliar name, they may get an initial first reaction that they have concerns about whether the person has the social and language skills the job requires,” said Philip Oreopoulos, ...

The industrial age has finally run out of gas: An interview with Don Tapscott - Nov 17, 2011

By: Rawn Shah

  “Throughout the 20th century, we created wealth through vertically integrated corporations. Now, we create wealth through networks. We are at a turning point in human history, where the industrial age has finally run out of gas.” – Don Tapscott Somewhere, between the APEC CEO Summit with world leaders in Hawaii, receiving a place on the Thinkers 50, a keynote speech at the Enterprise 2.0 conference, and another trip to Brazil for TEDx USPLeste all on the same day, I had a conversation with Don Tapscott yesterday on the changes terraforming the landscape of business and ...

Five ways to make a killer first impression - Nov 4, 2011

By: Vanessa Van Petten

Most people will judge you within the first second of meeting you and their opinion will most likely never change. Making a good first impression is incredibly important, because you only get one shot at it. Princeton University psychologist Alex Todorov and co-author Janine Willis, a student researcher who graduated from Princeton in 2005 had people look at a microsecond of video of a political candidate. Amazingly, research subjects could predict with 70-per-cent accuracy who would win the election just from that microsecond of tape. This tells us that people can make incredibly ...

Three steps to a better first impression

Globe and Mail - Oct 14, 2011

By: Katie Bennett

The question Generally, I think of myself as a good employee – willing to work hard, work with others, and always willing to go the distance – which has always gotten me good performance reviews. However, I find it so difficult landing a new job since I generally feel that I do not make the best first impression (I got my current job through a job placement agency). I feel that the company needs to get to know me before I can be judged accurately on my work and abilities. Given existing hiring ...

There is no shirk in teamwork

Globe and Mail - Sep. 30, 2011

By: Wallace Immen

There’s one rotten so-and-so on your team who just shrugs and ducks out when asked to help on the project. And you might think that by being a good egg and being helpful, you could counter the effects of bad apples like that, or even shame them into carrying their load. But it isn’t that easy, new Canadian research has found. “We found that good eggs are not as contagious as bad apples,” said Jana Raver, associate professor at Queen’s University School of Business in Kingston. Fortunately, organizations whose leaders stress co-operation can help ...

How to answer the ‘salary expectations’ question

Globe and Mail - Sep. 19, 2011

By: Eileen Chadnick

The Question I have a question regarding the concept of “salary expectation,” particularly for entry-level managerial or professional positions. Given that people applying for these positions are usually new graduates and have little knowledge of the typical rate of pay for that specific industry, I wonder what an experts response might be to the question: “What is your salary expectation for this position?” How should it be approached in an interview? The Answer In job interviews you want to be as prepared as possible and that includes being ready for the salary expectation question. ...

I’m being let go, what are my rights?

Globe and Mail - Sept 7, 2011

By: Daniel Lublin

The question I am 58, and over the last three years my employer has reduced my salary by 15 per cent. Over the last two years, negative comments started popping up about my performance and the fact that my salary was one of a very senior resource. I defended myself against the negative comments, even providing proof of their inaccuracy, but was not successful in convincing my leader that they were not justified. Over the past 14 years, I worked in the same job, but as a result of industry consolidations, I ended up working for ...

I flubbed a job interview, now what?

Globe and Mail - Sept 9, 2011

By: Cindy Gordon

The question Recently I had one of those interviews where the company's HR recruiter and I met for a “screening interview” and I felt it went terribly wrong. It all started off with what I thought was a good 20-minute discussion a few days prior, where we went through my qualifications and career highlights. She opened the face-to-face interview with, “Well, you don't have the specific industry knowledge we’re looking for,” which left me wondering why the meeting even got that far. I did my best to explain why I thought my skills were ...

Self-management: Your not-to-do list

Special to Globe and Mail - September 5, 2011

By: Harvey Schachter

You probably have heard by now about the notion of creating a Not-To-Do list, helping you to steer clear of wasteful activities. But you may not have created one, either because of lack of motivation or uncertainty of how to go about it. Michael Hyatt, chairman of Thomas Nelson Publishers, says such a list is particularly important when you take on a new position because you will be under great pressure to perform and will instinctively aim to continue many of the tasks you did previously. On his blog, he sets out the following ...

Résumés that stand out for the wrong reasons

Globe and Mail - Sep. 02, 2011

By: Wallace Immen

When there’s a lot of competition for jobs in a slow-moving economy, every applicant wants to stand out from the crowd. But a new survey finds that, too often, people put information in their résumés that has them standing out for all the wrong reasons. Nearly half (45 per cent) of 2,660 human resource managers interviewed by job website said they make decisions on whether to trash an application in less than one minute. And the HR managers recalled some memorable gaffes that immediately disqualified applicants. Among them: A candidate who ...

How to promote yourself and be promoted

Globe and Mail - 9.2.2011

By: Jim Murray

THE SCENARIO I aspire to a higher level of responsibility but all too often see others with less skill being promoted over me. I don’t want to come across as immodest, but how do I get the recognition and advancement I deserve? THE ADVICE In business today, if you can’t get excited about your accomplishments, no one else will. Humility has its place but it will not get you noticed by those who can further your cause. People who can’t promote themselves, can’t advance their agenda. Self-promotion is the ability to convey authenticity with grace and ...

By: Daniel A. Lublin

What are some of the most common questions you’re asked about employee and employer rights in the workplace? Workers and employers like to cling to beliefs about workplace rights they glean from media, friends or researching on the Internet. However, many of these “perceived” rights often do not exist. Here are some common misconceptions. Termination on maternity leave? Terminating employees during maternity leave is illegal. But in reality it happens anyway. Why? Simply put, legislation in some provinces contains qualifiers allowing dismissal in cases where the employer can show it was unrelated to ...

Can't get a raise? Negotiate your benefits - 8.31.2011

By: Bobbi Dempsey

If you didn't get a raise this year - and don't see a chance of getting one any time soon - you are not alone. These days, you may consider yourself lucky to still have a job. But just because your boss can't boost your paycheck doesn't mean you're completely out of luck. For employees who can't get a raise in their salary, a "benefits raise" - getting the employer to increase/enhance current benefits or add new ones - may be the next best thing. Here are a few tips on persuading your employer ...

The 10 toughest interview questions - 8.31.2011

By: Susan Adams

A job interview at one of Google’s 75 campuses around the globe might seem to have more in common with pledging a secret fraternity than job-hunting. An often months-long interview process, iron-clad non-disclosure agreements and back-to-back hours of interrogation in windowless offices are a matter of course, but the added intrigue of allegedly absurd interview questions takes the experience into cloak-and-dagger territory. Why are manhole covers round? How do you measure 4 gallons of water using only a 3 and 5 gallon jug? How many gas stations/dogs/windowpanes are there in the United ...

Science, tech jobs pay more, lead in growth

USA TODAY - 07.14.2011

By: Paul Davidson, USA TODAY

Jobs in science, technology, engineering and math fields pay an average 26% more than other occupations and grew three times faster the past decade, according to a Commerce Department study to be released today. The Obama administration is citing the report partly to put numbers behind its push to invest more to increase jobs in so-called STEM fields. Many employers lament a dire shortage of highly skilled workers despite 9.2% unemployment. From 2000 to 2010, STEM jobs grew 7.9% to 7.6 million, three times the rate of other fields, the study by Commerce's Economics and Statistics Administration says. They're expected to swell ...
