Getting Off to a New Start at a New Job

Getting a new job can be an exciting endeavor.  It can also be a little overwhelming.  There are many tips that you can consider to get yourself on the right track. 

Introduce Yourself 

Although you may not want to draw attention to yourself on your first days at a new job, consider finding the right timing to give a quick introduction to people you may have not met.  You want them to know you are excited to be there and that you are enthusiastic about your work.  Also, do your best to remember names and use them to show that you care about them. 

Interview Tips for Internal Promotions

Hiring and promoting from within is always more efficient than hiring someone from the outside.  Internal employees know the ins and outs of the business and understand the different personality types they will be working with.  Each time a new person is hired, you are spending time training them on internal policy and procedures, which also takes another employee away from their work.  This is why internal promotions or transfers can be a great way to fill a position within a business.

Career Exploration

Exploring careers is a normal part of life. We all get jobs that we think will satisfy us or at least pay the bills and then we are often met with disappointment.  At that point, it is time to reevaluate the career path you want to be a part of in your life.  Think about the aspects of your job that make you happy and the parts of your job that you could do without.

How to Know When it’s Time to Leave your Job

Finding the right job at the right time is the key to a portion of your happiness.  The job needs to be fulfilling and it also needs to pay the bills.  Sometimes, we sacrifice one for the other and in an ideal world our job would be both fulfilling and financially savvy.  You may find a great job and over time decide that it is no longer a good fit.  Waiting too long to leave your job can lead to depression and serious stress, so here are some tips to determine if it may be time to leave your current job and look for greener pastures.

Career Change Tips

Changing your career path in the middle can be frightening, but rest assured many people can change their career successfully.  Usually career changes occur due to feelings of boredom and emptiness.  Below are some tips to help you get through the transition smoothly.

Starting a New Job

Starting a new job can be extremely challenging and may cause a little stress at first.  Remember, take it slowly and learn the ropes to ensure you understand all sides of the business.  This new opportunity is a chance to make a wonderful impression in the business community and show that you are there to make a difference and to get ahead.

Leadership Development

Training for the leaders in your organization is a key concept if you plan on having a successful business.  Many organizations believe that a training course is all you need to get your leaders ready to perform; however, there is much more to it than just a training class full of ice breakers and best practices.  The training process is in-house and will take time.

Formal Training

First Impressions: Guidelines for Job Interviews

It goes without saying that first impressions count for a lot.  Not just in business, but also in life.  A first impression is made within the first four seconds of meeting someone and cannot be taken back.  There are no mulligans in first impressions.  You never have a second chance to make a first impression.  But what is involved in a first impression?  Is it what we are wearing?  The way we carry ourselves?  Maybe even our speech; viz., not just what we say but how we saying it (tone, enunciation, grammar, etc.). 

Finding the Right Job

When looking for the perfect job for you, it is imperative that you look at all the aspects of your new career.  Don’t jump at the first opportunity you receive, because it may not be the best fit.  You should also not select the highest paying opportunity, as it may not be the best fit for you personally.   Weigh all the options and take the time to consider which job is the best for you.
