Self-Praise sounds conceited…Why letters of recommendation can boost your professional reputation

In your job search or business activities, you may hear people mention letters of recommendation, but do you really understand what it is? Do you understand how this #careertool can truly help to distinguish you from other candidates in the job market or in business, if you’re an entrepreneur? The title “Self-Praise sound conceited…Why letters of recommendation can boost your Professional Reputation”, speaks to how others view you and its influence on the new professional relationships you cultivate interviews and business meetings.

I don’t want to assume that everyone reading or listening to this post knows what a letter of recommendation is, so let me explain. A letter of recommendation is a letter written by a person(s) who have experienced working with you in a professional capacity and writes a letter communicating how they felt about the work you do, the way it which you do it and how they felt your work positively affected them and the organization you are both associated with. It’s not be textbook definition, but it gives you a better idea of what the letter of recommendation is and what’s included. Now, let’s talk about how this career tool can help you in your career and business ventures.

Your career and your business life cannot survive without other people. I know you wanted to think otherwise, but nothing can be further from the truth. In your career, you need people who will create and offer job/career opportunities. In business, you will need people to market your business to and continuously patronize your business, if you ever hope to keep your business alive. So taking the time to understanding how people work and what they respond to helps you utilize your career tools strategically. The letter of recommendation is no different. There are two major questions that your letters of recommendation will answer for your future employers or new business relationship, if it is structured correctly. Here are the questions:

1. Can this candidate or possible business partner do what their resume or professional snapshot says they can do?

The letter of recommendation written by an individual you worked with or worked for in a job, contract position or voluntary capacity answers the question of what you can do. Your skills and qualifications are validated in the letter of recommendation because it is discussed. The individual should reference two or three of your core skills and qualifications for the industry you have experience or education. This give the business person or interview another person’s perspective on your qualifications and how it will benefit their organization.

2. What is the work ethic or personality type of this person that I cannot find out from this interview?

Since the person writing the letter of recommendation is someone you have previously worked with some capacity, then they should also reference information about your “positive” or “energetic” personality. The person should also reference your strong work ethic and overall attitude of getting the job done well and quickly. These type of phrases in the letters or recommendation will communicate to the future employer or future business partner that you have the aptitude to meet their business needs because of how you work. It is vital to understand that someone else speaking on your behalf automatically bears more weight that you speaking for yourself.

Overall, the letters of recommendation will positively enhance your reputation without you saying a word. Other people you have worked with validates your experience, work ethic and overall qualifications, so it is extremely vital that you use letters of recommendation in your career strategy, especially during job interviews. I want you to know I am hear to help you to become a better version of yourself, professionally. If you need help with getting your letters of recommendation completed or reviewed to make sure this career tool is working for you, then check out the career tools review resource .

Some of you may have been raised in households that instilled your independence already. If you fit that description, then you have some of the tools to start working towards your financial independence. If you have no idea I am talking about or can’t relate in any way, then I wrote this piece especially for you.

6 Things you MUST DO to get and keep your economic independence soon after high school graduation. In the first part of the series, we talked about creating a career an economic plan for yourself for the next 10-15 years, so life doesn’t have to slap you around to learn to plan and execute. The first part of the series explored the importance of planning out your career and business path by WRITING THEM DOWN. If you didn’t get the opportunity to read the first part of the series, you can do so by clicking HERE. We are now going to dive into the 2nd thing you need to do to gain your career and economic independence from your parents….YAY!

2. Learn about how your personal credit works NOW before your credit ends up trapping you financially
This step in the 6-Part series is probably the most important, especially if you live in countries built like the USA economy, because of its dependence on CREDIT. If my current self could have told my 18-year old self about what I learned about credit in my adult years…my life would be dramatically different and for the better. Don’t get me wrong, life is great…but there are painfully EXPENSIVE lessons I could have avoided in the world of personal credit had I been armed with…I could have easily avoided. The information I am about to pass on to you will only be effective if you TAKE ACTION. To get the basic and comprehensive information about credit, look at adding the following resources to your collection below:

and

These two resources changed my entire holistic view and shattered the mystery of how credit works in the United States. They’re grown adults in their 40s and 50s still struggling with credit issues because they do not have a comprehensive understanding of how it all works. I can personally vouch for the positive impact these two resources had on my credit profile and score, once I took MASSIVE ACTION! As young adults graduating from high school, it’s important to learn about how your overall finances affect the stages of your credit. Once you utilize and begin the proper budgeting process as we talked about in Section 1 of this series, it will become evident that your expenses should never exceed your income, if it does, you have budgeting problems that needs fixing right away.

Keep in mind also that your personal credit affect your job and career search, your possible business ventures and your overall financial life. I’m not sure if you are aware that some companies will not hire viable and qualified candidates for certain positions if their credit score or credit report is too low or shows an irresponsible track record of payments without a reasonable documented explanation. I would also recommend you check out this FREE resource about how your credit works from the ConsumerFinance.gov website.

I want you to have this in the forefront of your mind…you MUST take action to not only understand but implement the necessary strategies to assure you can have great credit and the benefits it can provide to opening up career and financial opportunities, while you are still young enough to capitalize on them.

In the 3rd part of the 6-Part Series, we will talk about having your career tools ready such as your resumes, cover letters, letters or recommendation and other tools for job/career opportunities you want or aspire to obtain. Keep in mind that if you are still struggling to figure out what your career path should be and you’re looking for a concrete, industry specific career plan specifically tailored to you…then check out this resource to get your comprehensive career plan in place quickly. I want to urge you to learn from my mistakes and the mistakes of others wishing they had the information and knew how to use it. Take advantage of the opportunity to conduct yourselves wisely in the your career and financial life now, while you have YOUTH on your side.

5 Before your next job interview..AVOID these 6 things

Listen, I know you may be nervous and jittery about your next job interview, especially if it’s for an awesome opportunity you’ve been looking forward to. Whatever you do, please AVOID these six actions I’m about to discuss…if you have any hope of landing this job or career opportunity.

We are now on avoidance #5 of our 6 things to avoid before or during your next job interview….

Avoid #5 Being dismissive, ignoring or being unintentionally rude to the receptionist or front desk personnel at the company you are interviewing. The moment you enter the parking lot where the in-person interview is taking place…. the interview actually begins. Some companies start observing you the moment you are on their property. They may sometimes watch your interactions with people as you walk in and how you interact with the receptionists or front desk personnel. They also asked front desk personnel to provide feedback on each of their interviewees, so not paying attention to them or being unintentionally rude to them can harm your chances of getting the career or job opportunity.

If you’re struggling with your interview process, and need additional in-depth resources to help you with your next career/job interview? Schedule an interview coaching session to obtain the “industry specific” strategy and tools to DOMINATE in your next interview or if you’re truly motivated and move at your own pace, find this resource helpful.
