Focus — Joyce’s career tip of the week

Posted by on Jul 14, 2014 in Career | 0 comments

Many jobseekers mistakenly believe that being completely open and “willing to do anything” will make them competitive applicants. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

When recruiters and managers are hiring, they know the skills and experience they need for each role. They expect you to know about the position, the company and the industry. They are also expecting you to show them how you will fit in their organization and how well you will do the job.

The first thing you need to know about is yourself! What are your skills and talents? What do you like to do? What are your preferences about companies: size, geographic location and corporate culture? What kind of work do you like to do? What are your personal values and how do they relate to the corporate mission? Are the problems that the organization is solving the ones that are most important to you?

In an interview, can you give solid examples that demonstrate how your skills and experiences fit the job requirements? Are you able to show the interviewer how you can add value to the organization because you are talking knowledgeably and confidently about the company and the industry? Have you done research, spoken to professionals and tried enough things so that you can be convincing and prove that the work is what you really want to do?

That’s quite a bit to know and it really isn’t realistic to have that depth of knowledge for every position you find. This is why it’s so important to target your search to the jobs and companies you really want. A targeted job search takes time. Self-awareness takes even more time. Skipping these steps can be disastrous; and, this is why it is so important to start the process early.

Visit the Fulton Career Center early and often. Professional staff and peer career coaches are here to help you. Take the time to know yourself; discover and find what you want, and then, go get it!
