Team Talk

Let’s face it, candidates are human just like us and they have feelings too. Yes,  a reminder is needed of the obvious.  The key reason often stated is because you have not “sold” the job properly. What’s in it for me? Why should a candidate join your organisation? If you can't sell the job to yourself and not passionate about the product (your organisation) then it will come out. Even more sadly, we found there are a number of organisations that get NO views (yes! that's right). Remembering that our website gets about 120,000 eyeballs on them a month. We can't be sure which one is yours - but here are 5 possible reasons ... #1.   Perceived negative reputation of your organisation.  No good just having a logo if your brand is not known or worse, negatively perceived. We can tell by the applications (or lack of) of organisations that are consistently shunned. #2 .  Candidates are switched off by your organisation.  It’s possible they applied for roles and didn’t even receive acknowledgement letters despite advertising regularly. We wrote about candidate care  here #3.   Lack of talent for the role you are looking for.  This one is obvious. If you are looking for an astronaut they are hard to find. Then again......why don't you train one? #4.   Application  process is just "too hard".  We found that generally adverts that asked "hand deliver" or " post application " or "walk up" are generally not well received by job seekers. Who will ' walk up " to you in Viria (no offence to Viria of course but you get our point!). #5.   Short expiry . Asking for a candidate to apply within three days. Candidates get the sense you are not serious and the advertisement is probably there for some other reason other than hiring the best. We hope your organisation does not fall into  anyone  of these (*). So, what is the answer to your advert performance...send us a message for the team at  MyJobsSamoa  to help you! We think we have solutions to these.
HOW DO I PREPARE A CV (Curriculum Vitae or Resume) - Q&A Q1. What does a CV normally have?  A. Your CV is a document that tells about your goals, education, experience, referees. Q2. Do I need to prepare a CV? A. Some employers prefer you to have a CV so it’s best to have one. Q3. How do I create or make a CV? A. We will have some templates on our job site that you can use as a guide. You will need a computer with word processing program like Word. Q4. How long should be my CV? A. The CV should not be any more than 5 pages long. It depends on your qualifications and experiences that you include. It should have important items that are relevant to the position that you are applying for. Most roles will have a two page (maximum) CV. Q5. I have been working for a long time - do I include details of every job that I have worked? A. No, if your earlier work history is not relevant then do not include in detail in the CV. Employers are human beings like us and do not have time to read items that are not relevant. Q6. What should I look out for to have a nice CV? A. Make sure the CV is factually accurate, there are no spelling mistakes and no grammatical errors. Get a friend or maybe 2 friends to read your CV and read it for any errors or things you should either add or remove. A fresh pair of eyes is always good to see the CV before you load it to the job site for job applications. Q7. Can I have more than one type of CV? A. Sure! The job site allows you to have a number of  CV’s  that you can load on the job site. You can have a CV for instance that is relevant for finance officer and another for say sales rep. Q8.  I am  interested in domestic duties? Do I need a CV? A. Umm well, a CV is really there to sell your skills to a potential employer. So it’s best to write down your skills and experience so that you stand out from the rest! Remember, a good CV helps you get the interview - it’s the first step in getting you your dream job.

So what makes you more valuable than the others.....in your organisation? Here are three simple things... 1. Trust  Specifically building trust. Trust comes from two things - integrity and being capable of doing your job. Honesty is a highly valued trait and is often is part of what defines your integrity. Speak your mind appropriately when asked and if you are unsure be honest. It is perfectly "Ok" to not know all the answers or to put your hand up and admit/own your weaknesses. Trust also flows from your capabilities. You were hired for your role because the organisation that hired you had the faith in your technical and interpersonal skills.  2. Go the extra mile... Think outside the square and do not turn a blind eye to things as they are not in your position description. Managers/owners treasure people who are creative and are problem solvers. Don't throw your hands up in the air and declare "too hard". Find a way forward by brainstorming, discussing and researching the issues. If there is a tap leaking water...."tighten the tap properly" or wash the dishes in the sink. It is not in anyone's job description to tighten leaky taps! Small things get noticed...go with the saying "be the standard that you walk past".  3. Enthusiasm Be excited to be rolling out of bed to go to work!  When an issue or problem is given to you -  show that you have a 'can do attitude".  Be positive at work and when asked "how are you feeling?" Do not spend the next 30 minutes doing a download of the million issues you are facing in your life. That may be the last time someone asks you that question and everyone will probably avoid you in the lunch room. (Of course seek help if you genuinely have problems....but not everyone at work will be ready to hear your issues and are your friends). If it is too painful thinking about work.....you are not in the right job .There are two options available:  a.change the environment at work so that it is a fun environment and, b. if you can't change that environment - go somewhere else where you will be happy!  Radical right! Well we have discussed with a lot of people over the years and have also experienced this first hand. Gandhi is credited with saying "Be the change you want to see in the world"...start being that change!
Is this you? You have job vacancies delivered to your mobile device and you think life couldn't be any better when applying for a job? The fingers tap away on "Apply Now"...and another application sent - yay!   Now all you have to do is wait for the interview call and then... a day passes by then another....followed by a week and eventually a month.  You have stuck to the same routine each day without success what are you doing wrong? First, its time to stop that routine! Life in a digital world is fun and convenient but you have to be smart. Spare a thought for the Hiring Manager, who has to read your daily applications (and not just yours...others too!)...because you have been applying relentlessly each day to every job opening from the same organisation. The person reading your emails/application is another human being just like you.   "Just match the job description to the skills of the candidate"....right! well not quite! Recruitment is an art as much as a scientific process. Only if it was that simple. We will not discuss the mind of a recruiter here.  But here are some simple things you can do to improve the chance of that interview Applying for a job follow the laws of attraction - first impressions count. So, it pays to care about the detail....and create a positive impact in the mind of the recruiter.  Seven things to help you get that interview...  1. Prepare a CV . It should cover all the salient points about you. For example, these things are a must: Education, experience, qualifications, hobbies, referees, availability and aspirations. Also, include volunteer work if any. Make it about you without quirky fonts or images.  2. Do not spam!  Be very selective when applying for roles. If you have applied once for a role with a company, there is no point in applying for an exact same role that is advertised 2 months later. Chances are, the Recruiting manager still remembers you and for a valid reason not shortlisted you. Your fresh application is probably headed for the delete folder. Also, if you applied for say as a security officer before should you now apply for housekeeping? Chances are in your desperation for a role you are blindly applying for all roles. Sit back and evaluate what really are your skills. Are you suited for an indoor job or outdoor? Do you prefer working behind a desk or being on your feet? Do you like meeting customers or enjoy working alone? These and many more questions like these should clarify the types of jobs you are suited to. if you cannot decide - talk to your friends and family who know you best. Often they can point you in the right direction. 3. Covering letter . Always have a covering letter. A covering letter should contain your reasons for applying for a job. It should reflect your personality and personal qualities that you may not have covered in your CV and why certain aspects of your skills match the job advertisement.   4. Be polite . Everyone loves to be treated with politeness and respect. So, start your letter with "Dear Sir or Madam". Always keep it formal and not as if you are talking or writing to a close friend. If you know their name,  address them by their surname. Respect and politeness go a long way. 5. Clear layout for CV. Have simple and clear headings that are easy on the eye. Heading makes it easy to read and lets the reader focus their eyes on what they wish to read. Do not clutter the CV by reducing the font size to make it "fit" into your planned number of pages. There is nothing more annoying than reading a CV where the reader needs eyeglasses when they have perfect vision in real life. 6. Adequate details. The CV should contain an adequate amount of detail to convey the message regarding your experience and who you are for THAT job you applying for. I know you love bullet points - but they alone will not give enough to the recruiter. Do not make them guess about your experience. For example, simply writing... "managed all phone calls" does not make you shine from the other applicants. But if you wrote - "managed all incoming calls in a busy environment with 70 calls an hour". This now changes the work dimension and gives it better information. 7. Complete profile . if you are using an online job board platform to apply for jobs, then make sure your profile is completed properly in the system.  The online profile can also be your electronic CV, but its best to have a "Word or PDF" version of your CV loaded along with your profile.  Also, ensure the profile details are consistent with what is on your CV. Looking for a job is a job - Good luck!
