Interview tips and Ask Questions

  • During the interview, do not get into salary details. Say that it depends on the job, and you would like to talk about it after a job offer.

  •  Do not worry about asking for help frequently in your new job. Nobody will think you are incompetent. You learn most by asking questions.

Professional Gathering and Changing Careers

  • In a professional gathering, the more relevant you can be, the more likely you are to get connected to people who may be able to help you.

  • While changing careers, find out if any specialized skills are required for your new career and also calculate the maximum growth prospects.

Resume skills and Time Management

Average work and Resume tweaks

  • Never hand in average work to your colleagues or supervisors. It will give an impression of not taking excellence at your job seriously.

  • Don't generalize about personal qualities or past job titles in your resume. Instead, give specifics about your skills and experience.

Career path and your profile


  • Choosing a career is a big decision. A decision that should involve more than thumbing through a book or newspaper and picking a job..

  • A professional profile sells your expertise to a potential employer, explaining why you are the best, and only, candidate for the job.

Deadlines and Expectations


  • Keep your work deadlines. If there is an issue you must inform your superiors of a possible delay in delivery. Do not spring surprises.

  • You are not expected to know everything in the first few weeks of your new job. Take time to ask questions, observe and learn everything.

Attitude


  • Don't use the statement - "I have not done this before" as an excuse. Ask intelligent questions. Take up the challenge and surpass it.

  • Do not be afraid or too egoistic to ask for help if you do not know how to do a certain task. You will learn only when you seek help.
