Why your career success is YOUR responsibility

https://anchor.fm/mentor-shelly/episodes/Episode-130-Why-your-career-success-is-YOUR-responsibility-ea7j21 (Listen on the podcast)

You didn’t expect your parents to make you successful as an adult did you? Your parents have done their job of raising you to be a responsible adult….now it’s time to show them what and how you can use all the great principles of adulthood to good use.

As I’m writing this, I also realize that not everyone had the same upbringing or even had parents to teach them about being responsible adults. You have had to learn quite a bit about life on your own, so I understand.

I want all of you to know…no matter your background, past or circumstances, the success or failure you achieve in life is completely and totally, your responsibility and within your control. Once you reach the ripe old age of eighteen (18), you are officially an adult. If your parents or anyone else helps you financially, economically or in any way, it’s a bonus. Be grateful! They are not obligated to help you, so if they do…please do not take it for granted and show some gratitude.

The heights of your #career and #business ventures are completely in your arsenal of control. I want you to take charge of your destiny, but I want you to know something extremely vital. You must have FOCUS and you must HAVE A PLAN to keep your overall career and business development focus in check.

If you do not have a plan or still trying to figure your next career move, then I can certainly help you with that…I have a guide that help you get focused and create a plan for your career venture or business development. You can access the DREAM CAREER GUIDE by going here.

If you’re looking for for a more direct and concrete plan for your business or career development, then schedule a “CAREER STRATEGY” session with me by going here.

Interview Question: What are your weaknesses?

Sometimes, interviewers literally pull questions off the internet to ask right before your interview begins, but do not make the mistake of not answering their questions strategically…it can cost you the job or career opportunity.

Some interviewers like to ask this question “What are your weaknesses?” to see how you respond non-verbally and along with what you have to say. This question can throw you for a loop if you are not aware of the objective. The objective of this question is for you, as the interviewee to communicate how you overcome weakness or challenges in your professional career by telling a story about yourself. In the video, I provide a couple of examples of how you would respond positively and professionally to this question.

If you have need additional guidance and support to be fully prepared in your next interview, schedule an interview session with my by going here…where I work with you directly to properly equip you to efficiently handle all aspects before, during and after the interview.

Do you need “Accomplishments” on your Resume?

Your resume is how employers first meet you…before they actually decide to have a conversation via email or telephone. Is your resume truly doing you any justice or causing you to get tossed in the throw away pile EVERY TIME?

In a previous video, I talked about how the “Summary of Qualifications” replaced the objective section on a resume. You can watch that video..here’s link here…

You will also need to add what you have accomplished in your previous job opportunities to show how you applied the knowledge, skills and expertise to achieve positive or desired results. Your future employer needs to know you can create those positive or desired results for them as well, so showcasing your accomplishments communicate it to them directly. The accomplishments are helping to market you better than other candidates that only communicate their skills, knowledge base and credentials.

Interview Question Series: What pay rate are you looking for?

When you are in the #interviews, whether face to face, over the phone or through some form of video based technological platform, you must prepare for the possible questions they will ask and have your questions ready to ask the employer or employer representative as well.

I have experienced this question with quite a few employment agencies trying to gauge what rate of pay I am willing to accept. In the video, I talk about three (3) ways to respond to this interview question without committing to an actual pay rate before the job or career opportunity is offered.
