Navigating The Summer Job Market

Navigating The Summer Job Market

 

Most people believe summer is the worst time to conduct a job search. Between college students and high school students eating up the market, vacations, lagging budgets, etc. hiring would seem to lag during the summer making it a bad time to conduct a job search. In reality, summer is a very good time to job hunt. Here are some tips to make your summer-time job search more effective:



Summer Jobs and Opportunities for Teenagers: A Planning Guide (Lifeworks Guide)
Spiff up your telephone skills. With people on vacation, you will be receiving more voice mail messages than usual as you try to reach people in your job search network. Always make calls with a notepad or organizer nearby and take note of when your contacts will be back in the office. Set an email up to be delivered the day *after* the person’s return and set a reminder to call again the second day after he/she returns.

Make sure you leave a clear, informative voice mail. Make sure you state your name twice, your telephone number twice, and your message once. Give a good time for a call-back. The following is a general formula for an effective voice mail.

“Hello , this is . My number is XXX-XXX-XXXX. I am calling because . The best time to get back in touch with me is . Again, this is and my number is XXX-XXX-XXXX. Thank you!”
Summer Jobs and Opportunities for Teenagers: A Planning Guide (Lifeworks Guide)

Always include your area code with your telephone number. Many times, people cannot return calls because they are not sure where the caller is calling from. Giving your time zone helps the recipient of the message know where you are located and helps them know exactly when to call you back. Speak slowly and clearly, especially if English is not your native tongue. Spell your name if the spelling is not easily recognizable. Provide more than one number if possible and repeat both of them twice.



Take advantage of summer social activities for your job search. Most jobs are filled through word-of-mouth. That means the more people with whom you talk, the more effective your job search. Summertime is chock-full of social activities from picnics to family reunions to ball games. Make the most of gatherings of people to gather information for your search and extend your network toward your target companies.

Volunteer. Summer seems packed with opportunities to volunteer. Volunteering not only gains additional network contacts for your search but it has many emotional rewards, too. Looking for a job, especially for those who have been engaged in long searches (more than 3 months) is emotionally exhausting. The warm fuzzies you receive from volunteering go a long way toward boosting your mental attitude.

Be persistent. Since many job searchers slack off in the summer thinking they are wasting their time, your competition is less. Take advantage of that and redouble your efforts in your search.

Google Tools Help Junzi Kitchen Reach its Startup Dreams

Junzi Kitchen serves innovative Northern Chinese cuisine, but its culture reaches far beyond the food. Founded in 2015 by Yale University graduate students who missed the flavors of their hometowns in Northern China, Junzi “uses food as a starting point to bring cultures together,” says events and communications director Reed Immer. Co-founder Yong Zhao sees Junzi as a model for “how a foreign culture can share its true values through a business in modern society.” It’s a “platform for collaborative projects between local chefs, artists, and entrepreneurs,” Reed adds. Connecting with today’s culture is core to Junzi’s business model, and they’ve found the internet to be an indispensable tool for reaching their audience.

“The whole Google suite of tools has been essential in enabling us to get where we are today.”

Yong Zhao, Co-founder

In terms of foot traffic, Reed considers Google Search a basic necessity. Junzi stays on top of their search results with Google Analytics, which helps them optimize both the discoverability and functionality of their website. Google Analytics also reveals how their site is performing as a channel for storytelling.

“Understanding how users move from our menu page to our about page, which tells the deeper brand story, helps us understand how visitors get curious about the story behind our food,” Reed explains.

As for their block parties, summer cookouts and other community-wide events, Junzi relies on G Suite tools to keep the planning process running smoothly. “Google Drive is where all of our collaborative work with chefs, artists and advisors from around the world happens. Google tools allow us to measure and create the things that we want. Without them, this would all be a dream way off in the future,” Reed says.

Junzi Kitchen has 30 employees.

More Junzi dreams will be realized on the heels of 500 percent annual revenue growth. Junzi Kitchen plans to open two more restaurants in New York City in 2017 and more than double their workforce. As they grow into the new locations, they hope to highlight the “special aspects of each neighborhood, while tying in Junzi’s larger story.” From New Haven to New York, they will continue to be “a platform that features the creative work and ideas of awesome people in the community.”

RuMe Uses Google Tools and Google AdWords to Drive Sales

 

For business co-founders Jae and Katy Lee, success is in the bag—and on the internet. The husband-and-wife team started RuMe (short for “reuse me”) on Earth Day 2010, marketing one medium-sized reusable shopping bag.



“We wanted to bring a little fashion to the checkout line,” Jae says. “We wanted to create a product, a line, and a brand that was about function and style, incorporating sustainability into an on-the-go lifestyle.”

The business started as a brick-and-mortar operation, but the Lees soon found that showcasing their brand online let them test new products faster, rather than waiting months between trade shows.

“With online sales, the speed at which we can test and design concepts and target different consumers is far better than any other channel,” Jae says. “With Google tools, we can come up with a product concept on Monday and have it in the market on Friday.”

“Internet sales is our primary growth driver.”

Jae Lee, CEO and co-founder

RuMe has expanded their designs and product lines to include customizable totes, travel bags and accessories such as luggage tags. Jae credits AdWords, Google’s advertising program, for making this accelerated growth possible. In particular, Google Shopping campaigns help consumers find their fashionable, eco-friendly designs. RuMe also uses Gmail, Google Docs, Google Sheets and Google Drive to power the back office and keep staff, including salespeople, connected on the fly. “Google has helped us bootstrap ourselves over the hump from being a two-person startup to a 70-employee company that markets through multiple channels,” says President Dan Frailey. Google Analytics provides a constant stream of information that tells RuMe which marketing concepts and tactics are working and which need to be bagged.

RuMe has 70 employees.

In addition to marketing products on their own e-commerce website, the company sells wholesale and through major retailers. They’re now expanding into corporate sales and Asian markets. “We’ve grown about 500 percent in the last few years,” Jae says. “Ultimately, the online channel is our highway to rapid growth.”

5 Ways to Feign Motivation as a Solopreneur

 

When you work for yourself, it can be hard to find motivation. This article will provide you with some tips that’ll make getting revved up to take on the day’s projects at hand a little easier.

Have a game plan

When sitting down each morning, do yourself a favor and skip the list and use your calendar to start time-blocking the day. Make this a habitual practice and you’ll effortlessly be able to visualize and map out your projects on a day-to-day basis and have an accurate gauge as to how realistic your expectations are in terms of what you want to tackle and how it can fit into your schedule accordingly. A good strategy is to block in highest priorities first, then weave in lower-tier items where possible. This will ensure that anything that might have to get pushed into the next day won’t be cause for stress since you’ve already set yourself up to complete the items that are most pressing.



Another useful tip when blocking your calendar is to save those 20 to 30 minute blocks to address smaller tasks that are quicker to turn around and set aside the longer stretches of time for projects demanding more focus. By doing this, you will effectively combat that relentless, late afternoon slump we all know and dread. Speaking of losing energy throughout the day, don’t forget to schedule in a couple of breaks!
The Miracle Morning: The Not-So-Obvious Secret Guaranteed to Transform Your Life (Before 8AM)

Taking a few minutes to create a game plan for yourself will not only help keep your day balanced, but you’ll feel more motivated knowing you are organized and using your time as efficiently as possible. Who knows? You may even have time to grab dinner with a friend, which brings us to the next technique for self-motivation: rewards.

Treat yo’self

Let’s face it: Sometimes it’s not enough to have a plan or course of action to meet our goals. We need that extra gear, an added level of inspiration that holds us accountable for achieving daily victories.

Research shows that rewards are responsible for 75 percent of our dedication and personal motivation.

The simplest reason why they are so effective and helpful? They make us feel good from the very start of a project to the very end. We get excited selecting a reward, and as we roll up our sleeves, it’s in the back of our mind as we make progress on the task. It provides us with enjoyment and a sense of pride by reinforcing or accomplishments when we are finally over the finish line.

The moral of the story? Treat yo’self. Maybe your ideal reward is crushing a workout or going to a concert; or maybe it’s staying in with a glass of wine and a good Netflix movie. Whatever you choose, make sure you are unplugged from your work completely and allow this time to be fully devoted to yourself.

Know when you’re at your best

Self-awareness is a significant factor responsible for our motivation. Specifically, knowing when we’re most productive and completing our best work can be a game changer. Thanks to technology, there are numerous time-tracking tools out there that make this seamless and simple for solopreneurs.

AND CO is an example of an app that allows users to track their hours either on their desktop or mobile devices as well as have invoices automatically created for them based on the time they enter. The app also allows for logging of time based on a timer or by project and activity. Fall behind? The tool makes it quick and painless to catch yourself up so you can get back to focusing on your projects.

When it comes to logging hours, a little discipline goes a long way. One of the biggest payoffs? You’ll become more organized and efficient, which will translate into you feeling more engaged. As a result, your performance will improve, contributing to a heightened sense of motivation and increased productivity, which will boost your efficiency and the cycle continues.

Surround yourself with others who share your motivation

We’ve all the heard The Beatles song, “With a Little Help from My Friends” and the saying, “There is power in numbers.” Considering the meaning behind either points us to a very impactful source of motivation: friendships.

Staying motivated can be as straightforward as putting ourselves in the same environment as our friends for several reasons. Primarily, there’s the added accountability when bringing others into the mix. It isn’t all about the possibility of a penalty, however. There’s a sense of camaraderie that is created when groups are formed. The feeling of being on a team united in their shared goals is extremely powerful and effective in driving results.
The Miracle Morning: The Not-So-Obvious Secret Guaranteed to Transform Your Life (Before 8AM)

Another way friends help us along is by serving as role models. We often don’t give it a second thought, but research on friendship has demonstrated that merely sitting beside someone who is grinding away on a product is enough to influence you to want to mimic their behavior and take your work as seriously as they are. So, next time you’re going to the coffee shop to work and are reluctant how much you’ll actually get done, ask a friend to tag along.

Maintain a constant pursuit of a knowledge

Asking questions, seeking feedback, carrying out research and intellectual conversations that challenge our perspectives are among some sources from which we can build our knowledge. Challenging yourself every day to learn something new has numerous advantages when it comes to your motivation. For instance, it can enhance your performance by helping you navigate obstacles in a positive way. What do we mean by that? In certain cases, inevitable adjustments and iterations present themselves when completing a project that may result in you having to step back and redefine your goals and strategies to meet them. Pursuing knowledge is a way to find those answers and gain clarity while sustaining a sense of purpose even if you are making shifts.

At the end of the day, we all need a little motivation. We hope these tips help spur your confidence and instill excitement as you kick off your next project. For more inspiration, check out the AND CO blog.

6 Factors Of Career Success

6 Factors Of Career Success





What do employers look for in potential employees? That was the question that was posted recently on a career discussion forum online. Naturally, for each different position, the particular answers to that question would be different. However, there are some common skills that employers look for in all employees, whether the employee happens to be a network engineer or a fry cook.

In-Demand Skills for Success

1. BASIC SKILLS‚ Reading, writing and arithmetic! Believe it or not, a good portion of high school graduates (and some college grads) do not read at an 8th grade level and cannot do multiplication in their head. Employers are seeking employees who can read well, can write coherently, and who can calculate mathematics in a business environment (fractions, percentages, etc.) Add to that the modern basic skills of keyboarding skill, basic computer knowledge, and ability to use most computerized tools (e.g. fax machine, basic word processing program, etc.) to round out the basic skill sets needed for employment success.

2. PERSONAL SKILLS‚ Can a potential employee speak well? Can he/she answer questions of customers in a positive, informative manner? Can the prospect provide good customer service? While not everyone has an outgoing sales’ personality, successful employees can communicate in a non-confrontational, positive manner with their coworkers, team members, subordinates, management, and customers. Being able to work well with others is a vital skill for success in all jobs.

3. JOB ATTAINMENT‚ Job search is a process that requires a great deal of dedication and attention to be conducted successfully. It follows the old principal that many veteran programmers refer to as GIGO ‚ Garbage In, Garbage Out. If you put lousy effort in, you will receive lousy results. Employers are seeking employees who know how to present themselves in a positive manner and who display enthusiasm and knowledge about the companies they approach. Not only do candidates get evaluated on their skills and experience, but also on how they are approaching the job search. Enthusiastic candidates with fewer skills have an even chance of getting the job as dull candidates with better skills.



4. JOB SURVIVAL‚ Now there’s a hot topic in this period of layoffs. Who gets the ax and who doesn’t is often a matter of numbers, but it is also often a matter of performance. Employees who have consistently demonstrated their worth, taken initiative, and made themselves a valuable asset to the company have lower incidences of being downsized than employees who put forth mediocre or average effort in their jobs. Surviving within a company through layoffs or moving up the career ladder is a success skill that is learned and is consciously cultivated among successful professionals.

5. PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT‚ As all high tech and engineering pros know‚ it’s learn or burn in today’s work environment. Attaining new skills, applying new concepts, updating established skills is an absolute necessity to succeed in today’s work force. The successful individual is constantly attending seminars, taking classes, attaining training on new products or releases, and otherwise learning new skills that will keep them marketable in their careers. Successful people are lifelong learners. Employers are looking for people who have the training necessary to fulfill their needs.

6. CAREER DEVELOPMENT‚ Career Development differs from Professional Development. Professional Development is learning while Career Development is a planning and goal setting process. Successful individuals design a career plan with written goals for short term and long term. They lay out the steps needed to move their careers from Point A to Point B within Time Frame C and plan how they are going to achieve those steps. Successful people have someone to whom they are accountable for their progress and who will monitor their success in achieving their goals. Employers are seeking individuals who (believe it or not) wish to commit to the company for a long period of time. Good career progression is a high selling point of candidates to prospective employers.

25 Music Jobs That Most People Don’t Know About

25 Music Jobs That Most People Don’t Know About

 

 

You may have heard that music jobs are almost impossible to find, especially if you’re young and just starting out. While it may be true that few aspiring musicians will reach the top of the charts, there are hundreds of thousands of music jobs available. Some are for performers, some for teachers, and some for support staff for musicians and performers. Musicians and others in the music industry may work in production, performance, promotion, and education – even medicine. I promised you 25 music jobs that most people don’t know about – but that’s not technically true. Many of these are jobs that people know about – but don’t consider when they think of ‘music jobs’. Ready for the list? Here we go:

Music Jobs for Songwriters:

A Staff Songwriter works for a record or media company and writes songs for the artists signed by the label.

A Freelance Songwriter writes and markets his or her own songs. Your hours are your own, but you’ll have to work a lot of them to get your songs heard.

A Lyricist writes just the words to songs. He may team up with a composer, or be teamed up with one by a music production company.

A Jingle Writer writes those catchy ads that you hear on the television and radio – you know, the ones that get stuck in your head for days. A jingle writer may not become a famous household name – but he or she will always find work.

Music Jobs in Publishing:

A Music Publisher finds and acquires the copyrights to songs with the intent of licensing or selling them to record companies and musicians.

A Copyright/Licensing Administrator ($20,000 – $60,000) manages the licensing and copyrights for a music publishing company.

A Music Editor ($20,000 – $60,000) works closely with the composer to document, organize and time cues for the musicians in a project.

A Notesetter ($15,000 – $50,000) transcribes music from audio to the page.




Music Business Handbook and Career Guide

Music Jobs in the Record Business

An A&R Coordinator (artist and repertoire) finds talent for a record company to sign. His boss is the A&R Administrator, a position that includes planning budgets for artists, managing reps and coordinators and monitoring the expenses on production.

Public Relations music jobs range from assistant publicist to director of public relations. The PR department is responsible for getting the names of the artists on a record company label out in front of the public often. Pay ranges from nothing for an intern to three figures for highly experienced public relations managers.

An Artist’s Relations Representative is responsible for maintaining communication and cooperation between the record company and an artist or band.

A Promotional staffer works with radio stations and video stations to get airplay for a label’s records.

Campus representatives are promotional agents – but they work directly to promote a record label’s products to college students and music retailers. Working as a campus representative is a great way to get your foot in the door at a record label.

Music Jobs in Education

A music teacher teaches music to classes from pre-school through college, with duties varying depending on the age of the classes. In the elementary grades, the music teacher may concentrate on teaching music appreciation and theory, with some teaching of instruments and performance theory. By high school, the job duties are more varied, and may include directing student performances and organizing and directing a band or choir.

A Music Director or Supervisor is responsible for managing and setting policy for music instructors hired by the school department.

Music Jobs in the Ministry may include part time work as an organist to full time work directing a professional choir and the entire music worship for a parish or citywide.

Tips For Getting Your Dream Job

Tips For Getting Your Dream Job





No one wants to toil out the majority of their days in a job that pays poorly and from which you derive no sense of joy or satisfaction. Most of us dream of a job in one field or another that allows us to live comfortably and still have a sense of accomplishment and a fulfillment of purpose at the end of the day. The good news is, those jobs are out there, but you will have to follow some basic rules in order to land the job of your dreams.

The first tip for getting that perfect job is to decide what it is that you would consider a dream job. You might be surprised to learn that in fact, a majority of people do not like the jobs they have chosen. Studies have shown that the average person will switch careers about five times during their lifetime, so you may want to keep an open mind about what exactly your dream job will entail. Often once you get into the job you will find that there are more options in that field you would like to take advantage of.

The second tip to finding your dream job is to stay committed. Once you find the job you would like, find out what kind of training you will need in order to land the position and pursue it zealously. Don’t just go for average in your training- work at it to impress whoever is training you so that you have their support when the time comes to apply for that perfect job.

Remember that even if you are working a job that you hate while you try to find your dream job, your present employer may have some say when it comes to your chances at the job you are hoping to get. Do the very best that you can under the circumstances, so that your boss will have nothing to say to your future employer that could be detrimental to your chances of getting your dream job.

When the time comes to apply for that job, be stubborn in your commitment. This can be a very fine line, as you do not want to be so persistent that you become a pest. Put together your very best resume, and make sure that it is carefully proofread and structured. Include a well thought out cover letter that details the benefit you will bring to the company and the position- this too needs to be well edited for maximum impact.

When you hand the resume in, make sure and give it to a person in charge of recruiting or managing. All employees are territorial and if you hand your resume to the first person you see at the front desk the odds are that it will not get into the right hands.

Ask for a contact name and give that person a call within a week after handing in your resume, if you have not yet been contacted. This will again demonstrate your commitment to the job.

If you land an interview, research the company before you go in. Be prepared to be flexible and to answer all the questions on your toes, and work in the chance to demonstrate your knowledge of the company any chance you get. It will show your enthusiasm and your dedication to the job.

Finding your dream job may be easier than you think- the fact is, not many people are great workers, and employers are always on the look out for quality talent. Apply yourself to everything you do with that dream job in mind, and you will greatly improve your chances of success.

Finding your dream job may be easier than you think- the fact is, not many people are great workers, and employers are always on the look out for quality talent. Apply yourself to everything you do with that dream job in mind, and you will greatly improve your chances of success.

5 Unusual Jobs You Can Get With A Nursing Degree

5 Unusual Jobs You Can Get With A Nursing Degree


Landing Your Perfect Nursing Job
There are more than  3.6 million new jobs available in the medical profession, and the bulk of those jobs – about 60% of them – are open to those with nursing degrees of one kind or another. The demand for registered nurses is highest – the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the number of jobs available for registered nurses will continue to rise – but there will also be increased opportunities for certified nursing assistants, licensed practical nurses, nurse practitioners, physician’s assistants and those in medical technical fields like phlebotomy and pulmonology.



And if you thought that the only jobs available for nurses were in hospitals and medical facilities, the Bureau of Labor Statistics has more news for you. Less than 60% of registered nurses work in a hospital. A nursing degree opens doors of opportunity into so many fields that it’s easily one of the most versatile and useful degrees that you can acquire. Not only that – a nursing degree appeals to a wide range of people. According to the BLS, about 20% of those entering the nursing workforce are older workers starting on a second career. Many of them have been attracted by rising salaries triggered by the nursing shortage, but for many of them, a nursing degree is a chance to do something that makes them feel good.

Whether you’ve just started your nursing career, are returning to work after a hiatus, or are switching to a career in nursing as a second career, take a look at some of the opportunities that are open to you with a nursing degree.


Landing Your Perfect Nursing Job
Pediatric Home Health Care is one of the growing fields for those with nursing degrees. Every state in the Union now has some sort of Early Intervention program that identifies children under the age of three years with special needs. Pediatric home health care gives you the opportunity to work with children and parents and make a real difference in their lives.

Elder Home Health Care is the other end of the spectrum. The ‘aging of America’ means that more and more people require a little bit of help to remain in their homes. Nursing assistants, registered nurses and licensed nurses can provide that little bit extra that will allow a senior citizen to maintain a higher quality of life and remain at home when all they need is a few hours of medical care a day or week.



Working in a Blood Donor Center is an option that makes you part of the life-saving network. There’s more to blood donor centers than just starting IVs. Nurses who specialize in pharesis can command high salaries, and a nurse working in the blood collection field can be a valuable community organizer as well as a medical practitioner.

A Critical Care Transport nurse requires multiple nursing degrees, but it can be one of the most interesting and fascinating nursing jobs available. A CCT nurse accompanies patients being transported from home or a nursing facility to another nursing facility. The nurse is responsible for maintaining continuity of care for every patient – in the back of an ambulance. It’s a challenging and fun job that commands a salary commensurate with the experience required.

On Site Nursing is a wide open field for medical workers with nursing degrees. You can work at an amusement park or zoo, or in the medical office at a state or national park, or provide medical backup for the emergency workers at a beach or other recreational setting. If you choose to work on site at a camp or other facility, your benefits may include free tuition for your own family.    One great company you can begin to search for great jobs with is Manor Care.  Click here to sign up for Job Alerts and find great jobs

How to find a job in Chicago.

How to find a job in Chicago.

 

 

Chicago is a great city. We live here. We raise our children here. We worship here and we believe in the ability of our people and communities to prosper and grow here.

 

Economically speaking, compared to other countries and cities around the United States, Chicago has so much to offer.  According to CareerBuild LLC and Economic Modeling Specialists International the projected job increase for the region will be 4.73 million in 2017, up from 4.63 million in 2013.*  Now, that’s good news.

 

The job of finding a job in Chicago can be a real challenge, but there are several ways to turn your job hunting gig into the best job yet.

 

First, a reality check is in order. A true assessment of your skill level and job qualifications is must. We suggest that you make a list of all of your job skills and experiences, even before you put the pen to your resume.  (As a matter-of-fact, this will assist you in putting together your enhanced resume.)

 

Next, a skill match search.  Simply use Google.com or any search engine to do a job search with the keywords, Chicago and some of the skills listed in your personal assessment.  This will give you an idea of what’s available in the area and what level of experience employers are requiring for those positions.

 

Then, upon your review of these job openings, ask yourself how your skills and work experience compares to what the employer is seeking. Do you require additional training?  Did you see some skills or experiences that relate to what you do that you can add to your resume? (Maybe you forgot to include them in your skill assessment or maybe it never crossed your mind that an employer thought the skill important enough to ask for it specifically in a help wanted advertisement.)  Believe us you can learn so much just by “analyzing” job ads.  (It is an employer’s market and it is about what they want in their future employee and not the other way around.)

 

Finally, the right resume for the right job.  If you are not an experienced resume writer, we suggest that you locate one now. Get help.  This is so very important, as it may be your first and last opportunity to get in the door.  Don’t blow it.

 

According to a recent article in Crain’s Chicago, “…there are jobs to be found in and around Chicago. You just have to know where to look.”

 

And, don’t forget some of our great local Chicago resources.  To ace our next job interview visit http://www.stanmartin.info  In addition, you can learn how to work from your smart phone or tablet.  To learn how, simply visit http://www.empowercareer.net

 

The way to get a job in Chicago is the same as any place.  Know the market and polish your skills to match the goals and your future employer. Be committed to success and hard work because getting a job in a tough economy may be the toughest job you ever had and know that we are here to help you make your Chicago job search a success.
