Who to Ask As a Reference

References are people who know how you work and get along with people. Employers usually call references to find out more information about you. Some suggest you put your references at the end of your resume, while others believe that it is not necessary to include them, instead write “References available upon request” at the bottom of your resume.

Here are some tips and advice:

•Have your references ready to go before you start applying for jobs.

•You should have at least three different references.

•Do not use any family members as references.

•You must ask them for their permission to use them as a reference.

•Ask: a previous employer, a teacher, a coach, a guidance counsellor, or someone who you’ve volunteered for.

•Include their name, title, where they work and their contact information (address, phone number, email)

•Keep your references recent and fresh, ensure that their contact information is also up to date.

•Update your references every so often.

•Tell your reference a little bit about the jobs that you are applying for.

•Be sure to thank your references, send them a nice thank-you card.

How to Ace an Interview

First Impressions Count!

Don’t be late. Arrive 10-15 minutes early as this will give you time to get settled and focus on the interview ahead.

Dress to impress. Look professional, don’t wear jeans or torn/stained clothes. Don’t go over the top though, be casually professional. Make sure your hair is also neatly done. Click here if you want to know more.

Bring a copy of the contact information for your references if you haven’t included them in your resume

Prepare, practice, practice! Make sure you know something about the company and are able to say why you would like to work there and what you will be able to contribute to their team. Mentally go through answers to questions that you think the interviewer will ask. Click here for typical interview questions.

Know your availability. Know what your schedule is like and when you will be available to work.

Watch your body language. Sit up straight, don’t slouch and be aware of any fidgeting you might be doing. You may want to bring along a file folder or notebook to hold onto to keep your hands still.

Maintain eye contact throughout the interview. Be aware of where you are looking.

Speak clearly and loudly in a confident tone, don’t mumble or whisper.

Give a confident handshake at the beginning and end of the interview.

Turn OFF your phone. Even a small vibrate will be an unpleasant interruption.

NO chewing gum! Take time to think about the answer. Don’t rush and blurt out just any answer, pause and formulate the best answer. If you’re panicking because the interviewer has asked a hard question, stopping to think will also calm your nerves. Your answers should be to the point. You can always ask for the question to be repeated.

Thank the interviewer at the end of the interview for their time.

Think confidently, smile, and relax. Every interview is a learning experience, and you’re going to do great!

Send a thank you note. Whether you got the job or not, this will set you apart and make you memorable.

Social Media and Job Seeking

In the employment world, social networking sites are becoming a valuable tool. Many employers are now searching Facebook and Twitter to find out more about their applicants. Now more than ever, it’s extremely important to make a good impression through social media, as the information employers are finding strongly influences their decisions.

What are employers looking at:

•Pictures- Do they display partying, alcohol, drugs or inappropriate behaviour?

•Content- Are there rude or inappropriate comments. Is this person who they claim to be? Do they complain about their previous employers?

•Interests- Do the interests of the candidate match the morals of the workplace? What you can do:

•Untag any pictures that you feel will impact your chances of getting the job.

•Strengthen your privacy settings.

•Show your volunteer experience on your profile, make this visible.

•Delete any inappropriate comments or posts, or make them visible to Friends Only.

•Stop complaining about your old boss, coworkers, teachers, etc.

You don’t have to completely change the way you use Facebook or Twitter, just be smart about who is viewing your profile and what effect this has.
