3 Important Interview Skills You Must Learn

Your experience and track record is very important to companies, but there are three very important interview skills you must master to be successful in any interview.

The 3 important interview skills you must master are:

1) Your knowledge of the Company
2) Establishing commonality with the interviewer
2) Positive attitude throughout the interview

All three of these interview skills are totally within your control.

How To Create A Vision For Your Career

All of life’s journeys begin with the phrase, “I want.”

Think about your career and the times when you said “I want.” Maybe you said “I want” go to college—and then enrolled in school and completed your degree. Maybe you said “I want” to work for a large or a small company—and you are working there now. Maybe you said “I want” to lead teams—and that’s one of your current responsibilities. “I want” is a very powerful phrase. Without it, it’s hard to go very far.

Are You Really Committed To Your Career Goals?

Are you working on your career goals or just going through the motions? Are you "in" one day and "out" the next? Are you waiting for your goals to inspire and motivate you, and then you will jump in completely?


How To Create A Powerful Career

If you compared you career to the Wizard of Oz, would you be at the start of the path, where the Lion lacked courage, the Tin Man had no heart, and the Scarecrow had no brain? Or, would you be Dorothy when she was moving forward to find her way back home or
Dorothy in the beginning of the movie when she was afraid because the wicked witch was chasing her?

What's happening to you in your career? Is your job being eliminated? Is your company merging or reorganizing? Are you on your third, fourth, or fifth boss, and you don't know what is expected of you anymore?

Are You In The Wrong Job?

Are you happy when you come to work in the morning, or happy when it is time to go home? Do you look forward to Friday, and then get knots in your stomach on Sunday evenings? If this is the case, there is probably nothing wrong with you physically. You may be in the wrong job.

Most people view their lives as being separate parts: work life/social life/home life. Your life has many components, but when you are in the wrong job, the rest of your life is out of balance too.

So How Do You Know If You Are In The Wrong Job? Ask Yourself The Following:


Are You Keeping Yourself From Your Next Dream Job?

8 out of 10 Americans want a new job (Society of HR Professionals, Dec. 2003). When people want to figure out their career situation, they are generally looking for something that is “better” or more, i.e., more passion, more of a challenge, more balance, or more money. Ironically, I’ve found that most clients start the career planning with a limited sense of possibility.

Limitations come from:

* Lack of confidence ("On one level I know I can start out on my own, but when it comes to doing it, I think I can't; so I don't!")


Create a Resume That Comes Alive


More often than not, resumes are your first introduction to an organization – giving them the responsibility of persuading the reader to want more. It is common for individuals to agonize over writing a resume and more often than not the finished product looks more like a career obituary or personal statement than a first class ticket to your dream job. A resume is an advert, an advert that introduces an individual, their career achievements to date and predicts how they will perform in their next role.

Making Changes In Your Career-The Big Decision

When it comes to making your "big" career decision, it's important that you take into consideration the big picture-all of the various parts of your life. Not only do you need to have worked out what your priorities are, you also need to look at things such as finances, family responsibilities, education, experience, where you are at personally in your life right now, and the list goes on.

Four Steps To Career Progression

If you are ambitious and want to get ahead, the current economic slowdown may well be frustrating your plans to move your career forward. Many people will be working long hours, whilst 'keeping their head down' just to maintain the status quo and maximise their job security.

However, there are four proactive steps you can take now to maximise security in your current role and, as economic conditions improve, place yourself in pole position to move your career forward.

Step 1 - Get Organised.
