Can you find a job you love and earn a decent income?
This is the dilemma I have observed in a number of clients over my years as a career coach. Clients who are frustrated in their current roles for a variety of reasons, clients who are looking for a greater connection with their work, but doubt whether it is really possible to find a career they will enjoy and find more fulfilling and earn their desired income.
Perhaps it’s something you personally struggle with and maybe you are desperate to take your career in a different direction but don’t truly believe it is possible at this time, because you can’t afford to take a pay cut?
How to make your job interview work for you.
An interview is a powerful tool, it has the ability to change the course of someone’s life and for an organisation, the selection of an ill-fitting candidate can be costly in many ways. Yet despite this how many of us as interviewers or interviewees can say we have sufficiently prepared for an interview? As an interviewee do you know how to prepare so you can showcase your experience AND assess the organisation’s suitability for you? Yes, it really is a two-way decision.
The very first job interview was first formally recorded in 1921 and while the format of job interviews has evolved from in person to video, the purpose and objective has not. At the heart of a job interview are two objectives 1) to understand if a candidate has the ability to meet the demands of the job and 2) if they will be a good fit for the organisation and the team.
In this blog we take a look at how you can prepare and showcase your suitability and assess whether it’s going to be a good fit for you and them.
