Need a Job?

Where to Find a Job?
The best way to find a good part-time job is to let everyone know you're looking for one and start searching! Sometimes you can create your own job or small business by noticing what people need. Ask yourself some of these questions to begin thinking of creating your own employment opportunities:
Do the people in your neighborhood need yard work or babysitting? Dog-walking? Errand-running? Tutoring their young children or themselves in computer or internet knowledge? How about being a personal fitness companion to keep someone on track with their running program?
Best Way to Write a Resume, Job Genius

Resume & Interviewing Information

What is a resume? A resume is a selling tool that outlines your skills and experiences so an employer or college can see, at a glance, how you can contribute to their organization.

Cover Letter Information
  • The Cover Letter - The cover letter is designed to introduce yourself to an employer with the object of getting an interview for a job that is advertised. It is important to follow some simple rules in writing a cover letter:Customize each cover letter with an inside address (do not use "to whom it may concern").
  • Personalize the greeting (Dear Ms. Smith). Try to get the name of a person whenever possible.
  • Mention where you heard about the position so your reader knows where to direct your résumé and letter. The first paragraph of your cover letter is a great place to state your objective. You can tailor your objective to suit the position.
  • The second paragraph is the perfect place to mention specific experience that is targeted to the job opening. Here is where you summarize why you are absolutely perfect for the position. Really sell yourself. Pick and choose some of your experience and/or education that is specifically related to the company's requirements, or elaborate on qualifications that are not in your résumé but apply to this particular job. If you make mention of the company and its needs, it becomes immediately obvious that your cover letter is not generic. Entice the reader to find out more about you in your résumé. Don't make this section too long or you will quickly lose the reader's interest.
  • The closing should be concise. Let the reader know what you want (an application, an interview, an opportunity to call). Close your letter with something like: "I look forward to hearing from you soon." And remember to say, "Thank you for your consideration" or something to that effect.
Thank You Letter Information
The Thank You Letter- A thank you acknowledgment should be sent as soon as possible after an interview. A thank you letter may be sent to each interviewer or, if the firm has one, to the recruitment coordinator with a note to pass along your thanks to those with which you spoke during the interview. Try to personalize each letter, it can be time consuming, but it may pay off. If you are sending a single letter which thanks everyone you met, take the time to give the names of those you interviewed with and make sure you spell their names correctly.

Interviewing Information

The Interview - The Interview - An interview is a personal encounter between two people. To communicate what you have to offer, you must establish good rapport. The way you conduct yourself during the interview is critical. Some pointers:Be confident, not cocky

  • Be assertive and clear in your communication
  • Be relaxed. They need you as much as you need them
  • Communicate your interest in the position and your enthusiasm
  • Have good voice quality. Don't shout, but let yourself be heard
  • Be a good listener. It will help you determine the company's needs and how you might fill them.
Make a good impression at your interview by doing a little homework beforehand.

Research the Company and the Position. The more you know about the company and the job you are applying for, the better you will appear in the interview. An interviewer will be impressed by your interest and motivation, and you will be able to explain what you can do for the company.

Find out as much key information as you can about the company, its products and its customers. If possible, talk to people who work at the company. There may be other sources of information on the Web, especially if the company is publicly traded.

  • Prepare for the Actual InterviewPractice your answers to Common Questions. Likewise, prepare a list of questions to ask the employer. Most interviews follow this pattern: First, you answer questions about your experience and qualifications, then you ask questions about the job.
  • Rehearse your interview with a friend. You should be able to convey all pertinent information about yourself in 15 minutes. Tape yourself to check your diction, speed, and body language.
  • Prepare your interview materials before you leave. Bring several copies of your resume, a list of references, and, if appropriate, any work samples. Make sure they are all up to date.
  • Dress professionally and comfortably. You will be judged in some respects by what you wear. When in doubt, dress conservatively.
You never get a second chance to make a good first impression.
