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.

7 Ways to make Money this Summer

Create Your Own Summer Job: 7 Ways to Make Money This Summer

 

Funds in the sun

Summer’s here, and opportunities for quick money abound. If you’re a recent graduate, a teacher or student off for the summer, or anyone else looking for some quick cash, summer’s a great time to start a business. With a little money, some hard work, and a lot of entrepreneurial spirit, you can start turning a profit immediately. And all of these ideas are things you can still walk away from in September if you want to.



Here are six ways you can be your own boss this summer:

  1. Go where it’s hot, and help people keep cool

There are plenty of public places that don’t have snack bars, and even the convenience store’s just not convenient enough. Bottled water, sports drinks, visors, cheap sunglasses, and battery-powered fans will sell anywhere there’s sun. Try parks, the beach, baseball practice field, or even a busy street corner near popular summer destinations.

What you’ll need: Transportation, a decent cooler (28 quart or larger), four bags of ice, two cases of bottled water, two cases of sports drinks, a half-dozen sunglasses, a half-dozen visors, and a half-dozen battery-powered fans.

Estimated startup cost: Under $100.

Buy the sunglasses, visors, and fans at your local dollar store for starters.

How much you can make: Even buying at retail prices, you should be able to charge double or triple your cost, or even more for the bottled water. At a good location, you should be able sell out every few hours, which comes out to $15-$30 per hour.

How to grow: Once you’ve figured out which products are moving best, you can order them wholesale at a fraction of the cost.

Things to watch out for: Check into your local sales tax requirements. Also, permits may be required at beaches, parks, and other public areas.

Best web resource: Wholesale411.com — Largest directory of wholesale general merchandise vendors on the Web.

  1. Lawn and yard care

People who care for their own yard the rest of the year may not want to keep up with it in the summer, when it needs to be mowed every 1-2 weeks (at least where I live). And full-time professional yard maintenance services want to set up regular contracts. Offer a low price and don’t try to push the ongoing contracts. Be opportunistic. Drive through neighborhoods looking for yards that need mowing and leave a flyer. It’s hard work, but decent money if you control your costs.

What you’ll need: A heavy-duty self-propelled mower, an edger/trimmer, blower, hedge clippers, a gas can, and something to transport them all in.

Estimated startup cost: $1,000 new, $500 used, or you can rent the equipment you need for about $100 a day to get you started.

How much you can make: About $25-$40 per yard, on average. It will take a couple of dollars of gas per yard, and figure another dollar or so for trimmer line, mower blades, etc. If you don’t have too much travel time, you should be able to do each yard in less than an hour.



How to grow: Own the equipment. Hire a friend to help. Offer additional services, such as weeding, planting, landscaping, etc.

Things to watch out for: Equipment maintenance can eat up all your profits very quickly. Keep it well-oiled, clean, and sharp. Also, don’t chintz on the equipment. The right equipment will allow you to work twice as fast. The wrong equipment will make some yards impossible.

Best web resource: LawnServicing.com — Lots of books and other things for sale, but a great collection of free resources, too.

  1. House sitting and pet sitting

Summer is family vacation time, and someone has to watch the pets and take the mail and newspaper in when everybody leaves for a week or two. If you can target your marketing to families, that will be most effective.

What you’ll need: Flyers and a couple of classifieds in your local papers, insurance, transportation.

Estimated startup cost: $200-$300

How much you can make: The going rates on pet sitting and house sitting range from $5 to $15 per visit, depending on the number and type of pets, frequency of visit, and expectations (long walks, etc.).

How to grow: Offer additional services such as house cleaning and pet grooming that can be done while you’re there.

Things to watch out for: Trust is everything in this business

Be prepared to provide personal references. Network with everyone you know to let them know you’re looking for this kind of work. Referrals will be your best lead source.
Summer Jobs and Opportunities for Teenagers: A Planning Guide (Lifeworks Guide)

Best web resource: How to Start a Pet Sitting Service — Detailed advice on marketing, operations, and startup costs.

  1. Mobile car detailing

People love convenience, and the idea of having your car cleaned while it’s already sitting there at their home or office sure beats the heck out of taking it someplace and having to wait on it. Luxury car owners may be reluctant to use machine washes, and especially owners of high-top vans and pick-up trucks may not even be able to.

What you’ll need: Transportation, business cards to leave on windshields, portable vacuum, a bucket, sponges, chamois, cleaning supplies.

Estimated startup cost: Under $100 to offer basic car wash services, up to $1,000 or more to offer specialized services.

How much you can make: $20-$30 per car for basic wash and interior on up to $100 or so for complete detailing (engine cleaning, etc.)

How to grow: Reinvest some of your money in equipment to offer higher-end services like engine cleaning or upholstey steam cleaning, or other related services like dent removal and windshield chip repair.

Things to watch out for: Know the Environmental Protection Agency regulations on the chemicals you use and local water usage rules.

Best web resource: MobileWorks.com — Tons of articles, discussion forums, marketing tips, and more.

  1. Summer nanny / babysitter

For working parents of school-age kids, summer presents a real challenge. Summer camp may take care of a few weeks, a family trip another week or two, but then what about the rest of the summer? Find two or three families, or one with several kids, and take care of the kids during the day.

What you’ll need: Clean, reliable transportation, some classified ads, a love of kids.

Estimated startup cost: Under $50 for classified ads.

How much you can make:$8-$12 an hour, depending on the number of kids. It’s less money than some of the other options, but it’s generally easier work.

How to grow: Take in more kids and turn into a home day care. Or, charge more for added services, like pet care or light house cleaning.
Summer Jobs and Opportunities for Teenagers: A Planning Guide (Lifeworks Guide)

Things to watch out for: Caring for multiple children not in the same family will generally require licensing and will require the facilities to meet certain requirements

There’s a big step from watching 2-3 kids from 1-2 families in one of their homes to watching 4-5 kids in your own home. Some states have licensing requirements for nannies, as well.

Best web resource: International Nanny Association — A non-profit association dedicated to promoting quality in-home child care. Lots of free articles, plus information about government regulations for all U.S. states.

  1. Tutoring and teaching

Opportunities abound for the entrepreneurially-minded person with knowledge to share. Some kids need help catching up on one or two subjects, homeschoolers usually school year ’round, and many parents put their kids in summer classes on a fun topic like science, drama, or creative writing. You can tutor individual kids, or put together a group workshop or week-long class.

What you’ll need: Some advertising and a facility, if you want to do group classes.

Estimated startup cost: Under $100 for flyers and advertising. For a facility, check local community centers, YMCA, etc., where you can usually rent a room for $10-$30 for 60-90 minutes, or $30-$50 for a half day.

How much you can make: $10-$20 an hour for one-on-one tutoring, depending on your qualifications. Classes vary widely in price, but with even a small turn-out, you should be able to make $50-$100 per teaching hour, but that doesn’t count marketing and preparation time.

How to grow: It takes the same amount of time to teach 20 kids as 10. Marketing & advertising is what will drive your growth.

Things to watch out for: Generally, teaching short classes that are not for credit doesn’t require any kind of special licensing, but check your local regulations to make sure that you don’t end up falling under the day care regulations if you have multiple kids.

Best web resource: Tutor Nation —There’s a listing fee, but they also offer lots of free resources and linke to other sites with information on tutoring. With a one-year membership, you also get a book on tutoring.
Summer Jobs and Opportunities for Teenagers: A Planning Guide (Lifeworks Guide)

All of the above business ideas can be started on a minimal budget and bootstrapped by reinvesting some of your profits. While they have a seasonal element to them, they also all offer the potential of growing into a full-time, year-round business if you choose, but they’re all also things you can walk away from in the fall.

  1. Avon Independent Sales Representative
    Cosmetics is a virtually recession-proof business, because it’s an inexpensive way for people to feel good about themselves. Avon is the largest consumer direct sales company in the world, with annual sales of nearly $6 billion. In business for well over 100 years, they have both a highly reputable product line and one of the few highly reputable multi-level marketing structures (in fact, they invented it). They also offer fashion and wellness products in addition to their beauty products. And while they bill themselves as “The Company for Women”, a fairly substantial number of men have actually been very successful as Avon reps. The secret to making a living at it rather than just a little extra spending money? Build your downline—just like with any other network marketing or direct selling business.

Spend the $20 on: $10 signup fee, and $10 on brochures and a few samples.

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.

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.

​Interviewing Tips: Why You Didn’t Get Hired

Interviewing Tips: Why You Didn’t Get Hired

Many people annually go through job interviews with no success. The reasons are varied; sometimes the competition is really tough; perhaps they had already hired someone internally; or maybe you didn’t take enough time to prepare for the interview. Many people fail to realize how important a job interview is. Employers are twice as likely to offer the job to a person who interviews well then to someone with relevant skills and experience. Some get over confident, thinking their resume will speak for itself. Some are under confident and let it show during the interview. What ever cases, your chances of getting the job offer are greatly diminished if the interview goes wrong. In this article, we will look at things you should definitely avoid when going in for a job interview.




LAND YOUR DREAM JOB ANYWHERE: THE COMPLETE MAC’S LIST GUIDE TO FINDING WORK YOU CAN LOVE
Something that puts prospective employers off is failing to make eye contact. When you fail to make eye contact you appear as if you have something to hide. Employers will pick up on this quickly and it will count against you. Speaking directly to the appropriate person and looking them in the eye makes you appear more confident and honest.
Those who show a lack of interest in the company are virtually guaranteeing failure. Showing interest is something employers look for. Having some questions for the employer is a good way to show that you really want to work for this company.

The inability to express information clearly will always work against you. Employers will give some leeway because they will know that you are nervous, however you will not be able to rest on this for the whole interview. Take your time and think about your answers. Don’t be afraid to ask them to restate it if your unsure. The most important thing is to relax. Perhaps practice with a friend or family member. Anything that will help you get your point across in a clear way will help you make the right impression on the employer.
If you are changing companies, you may have to take a lesser position or smaller salary. The unwillingness to do this cuts many out of getting the job offer. Remember, you must look at the big picture when taking a new job. There may be other benefits to this position besides salary. Weigh this very carefully before saying no.
There are several reasons why people don’t make it from interview to getting hired. Some fail because they take the interview for granted. You must remember, an interview isn’t an invitation to work for the company. You must present yourself well to get to the next stage.

​Interviewing Tips: When It Goes Horribly Wrong

​Interviewing Tips: When It Goes Horribly Wrong


How to Answer Interview Questions: 101 Tough Interview Questions

Common sense tells most of us the bare minimum for attending a job interview. You should always be on time, you should look neat and tidy, you should speak clearly and make your point, and you should make eye contact. However, there are times when things get out of your control. In this article, we will look at suggestions to help you when things start to go wrong. We will look at ways to get your momentum back and turn tragedy into triumph.



Something to avoid at all costs is arriving late to an interview. This sets the wrong tone and puts you in a negative light. However, sometimes things happen that are beyond your control. If you fear that being late is inevitable the first thing you should do is inform the company. Let them know why and when you are likely to arrive. If your lateness clearly isn’t your fault then it shouldn’t count against you in the interview. Everyone has been stuck in traffic because of an accident or had some other mishap causing them to be late, the interviewers should sympathize.

Something you should also avoid is going off on tangents that have nothing to do with the question asked or the position. People tend to do this when they are nervous. If you feel like this is likely to happen or has already started, stop, take a deep breathe and try to relax. Interviews are not designed to be fun but they shouldn’t be torture. Take sometime to gather your thoughts so you can express them clearly.



Finally, don’t ever be afraid to ask questions. Many candidates fear this because they think it will make them look incompetent. However, better to understand the question and give a good answer then pretend you understand it and look like a fool. There is no harm in asking the interviewer to restate something if you are unsure. This shows you are listening and take pride in your answer.
Interviews can be stressful. It is easy to say, relax and concentrate but much harder to actually do. Things can happen that are beyond your control to set things off on the wrong foot. However, your damage control skills can help get your through. Through careful explanation and taking the time to stop and think, you can quickly regain your momentum and make that interview a success.
