How to Prepare for an Interview in 24 Hours - Oneweeknoticeperiod.com



How to Prepare for an Interview in 24 Hours




Your dream job was just posted on a company’s website, or a job portal.  Of course, you uploaded your resume immediately even though it wasn’t completely updated.  Because of your outstanding experience, the recruiter or hiring manager called you to schedule a phone interview for tomorrow.  Now the work begins.  What do you need to do to prepare for an interview overnight?
Measure twice, cut once
Your best friend got a new job at the last minute – they would be the perfect person to call, right?  Maybe.  What was their interview process like, are they in the same industry, do they have a similar job function, and did they even do an interview like you will have?  If the answers don’t give you confidence in their interview experience being similar to the one you are preparing for, find another source.
Don’t rely on just one person’s opinion of what you need to do to be ready for the interview.  Asking your boss about the process when you apply internally may be a good strategy.  Having a connection in the company who works in that type of role would be important, if you are coming into the process as an external candidate.  Evaluate which two people will provide the best perspective and pick up the phone.
Back to basics

Here are the obvious ‘to do’s’ the night before an interview:
  • Update your resume thoroughly – work, organizational, and volunteering experiences.
  • If it’s a phone interview, determine where you will take the call – quiet, un-accessible, private.
  • For face-to-face interviews, print multiple resume copies on resume paper for each interviewer.
  • Think about what questions you expect to be asked and prepare some notes about how you want to answer them.
  • Re-read the job description and do some basic research on the company.
  • Write down some questions you will ask the interviewer(s) at the end of the interview.

Don’t underestimate the impact you need to make in an interview.  Hiring managers use different types of interviews to screen people out before they make the leap to meeting with candidates in one-on-one or group/panel interviews.  Your confidence and communication skills will be evaluated and rated in the first interview phase. Preparing effectively can ensure that you present yourself as a professional candidate who has skills that can provide value and results to the company.​

These skills will help you survive layoffs - Oneweeknoticeperiod.com



These skills will help you survive layoffs



The IT sector in India is currently undergoing a major transition. Technology and business shifts are impacting its growth and that of the employees alike. There is a constant fear of layoffs across the IT sector and the need of the hour is to re-skill employees to cut this risk for them and companies.

The IT industry is based on talent and skills, and both are mobile entities. A lot of work at the bottom of the pyramid is getting delegated what with automation and robotics making way. As per industry insiders, over 56,000 jobs will be lost this year itself in the top 7 IT companies alone.

With campus recruitments slowing down, those entering the IT workforce in the next 3 years would have to work hard to get themselves employed. This is excluding the fact that they will compete with those who have already lost their jobs. Those who retain their jobs will see lesser salary growth, zero bonuses, and a work environment that requires them to be highly competitive.

There are three fundamental changes happening in the IT landscape: IT Process Automation, Programming languages and frameworks, and Big Data/AI/ML.

● IT Process Automation Lot of IT development and support activities which were done manually earlier have been automated. For example, manual testing has given way to automation testing, manual build and deployment activities have given way to DevOps related tools which automate whole workflow etc.

● Programming languages and frameworks Most of the new development is happening on new frameworks like MEAN (Mongo-Express- AngularJS-Node.js) and ReactJS.

C/C++/Java is making way for Python and JavaScript.

● Data Science/AI/ML Related This is an area which has matured over last decade and is causing total disruption. Thousands of support jobs are being replaced by chatbots and other AI/ML lead automations. Skills like R, Spark, Python, Tableu are seeing increased demand. These are relatively newer skills and that’s where lot of future jobs will be created.

No matter how dismal the picture may be with layoffs, there are new sectors within IT with thousands of job opportunities today. Some such emerging fields with a growing demand for skilled professionals are Analytics, Big data, Internet of things, AI, Robotics, Cloud computing and security, and Blockchain technology.
However, the existing working professionals do not possess these skills. With their knowledge limited to traditional skills which are no longer required, there is an increasing need to re-skill these professionals.

Some popular courses for professionals to re-skill themselves include DevOps, Machine Learning, Big Data Development, Full-Stack (MEAN) Development, Cloud Computing, Cyber Security, and Android Development. There are also bundle courses such as Data Science Bundle, Big Data Architect, Web Development, and Mobile Bundle which are very intensive and makes sure you have all the skills needed to get employed in those technologies.

It is imperative for existing professionals to update themselves and read up on upcoming technologies. You can choose where your interest lies and identify the best way in which your previous experience and skills can be leveraged. Once this process is done, take a professional course. You could even do an internship with a startup.

Once you are re-skilled and back in the job market, you will be perceived differently and will also find it easier to get a job suited to your skills. It is important to not look at these layoffs as a discouragement but instead view it as an opportunity to reinvent and transform your skills and place in the professional world.

Ways to propel your career to the next level - Oneweeknoticeperiod.com

Upload.Search.Get Hired

➦Have a different pitch for yourself.

Differentiation is powerful. It will position you apart from the crowd, and is a cardinal rule for any job search. If you don't have a different pitch or approach, you are a generic version of the name brand; you are not memorable or persuasive

➦Have a relevant USP. 

Have a value proposition that is relevant to the market, just like a winning brand. You need to develop what distinguishes you and the benefit you bring to the job and the organization.

➦Think 'outside-in.' 

Think of what your industry or organization or boss is looking for (outside), and then figure out how you can meet those needs (in). Most people concentrate on what they want. It is much smarter to concentrate on what your key target audiences want first.

➦Have a strategy. 

You need to know where you want to be 2 years or 5 years from now. What's the best way to position yourself to achieve those goals? 
   

Develop an action plan with specific tactics. 

Develop a plan that can get you from A to B to C. There is no one right path, but some roads will be more effective than others. Know what experiences and skills are valued within your company and specifically know what achievements you need to attain to win that next promotion. The important thing, though, is to act. Even if an avenue doesn't work out, there will be learning. 

➦Get some visibility. 

Learn what skills and experiences are needed to achieve the next level and then make yourself available to work on special projects that get you noticed and help you develop the necessary skills. Volunteer to lead a high-profile project that no-one else wants to lead.  

➦Bring intellectual value. 

We used to make things. Now we're in the business of ideas. We're in the Knowledge Age. That's why you need to keep up with what's going on. Keep up to date by reading about your company's developments, trade journals, business magazines and newspapers.  

➦You're always on stage. 

Every meeting, every interview, is like a sales call. There is no such thing as a performance that doesn't count. You are always on stage and need to be selling yourself. Brush up your communication and presentation skills. It can have a big impact on how 'promotable' you are.  

Dazzle interviewers with a killer CV. 

 Many CVs read like a laundry list of skills and jobs with no focus or message. But your resume can be a powerful way to position and sell yourself and create a powerful personal identity. You do that by adopting a marketing mindset for the brand in question: you. Write your CV as if it were an advertisement for yourself. Have a focused message and a document that looks attractive and impressive. 

➦Prepare to 'ace' the interview. 

 Interviewing is an art. Approach an interview as a conversation. It should be a two-way street, where you just don't answer questions, but ask them. You will find the balance of power changes dramatically when you have a conversation. And brush up on the art of storytelling — stories are memorable. Relate your answers to business situations, actions and outcomes as much as possible. It can help to think in terms of a narrative format with conflict and resolution, dialogue and character development. If you took an action that produced results that were not as successful as you had hoped, don't despair. When you talk about tough situations, you make it easier for people to relate to you and care about you and your experiences.
