When employers get rude or short during the interview process

We have all experienced rude or people that are short with us, but you never expect it in a professional environment… It happens. Understand, they are human as well.

When you are going through the job search and interviewing process, it’s important to do a verbal “check-in” if you encounter rudeness during the process. It always helps to remain #professional.

Dear High School Grads…Do you want to live with your parents in your 30s and 40s? – Part 1

I know that things and times have changed as it pertains to the way you guys deal with life issues and problems. As millennials, you have found innovative ways to communicate through social media, navigate information and carry on major conversation through the awesome power of technology. I truly applaud you for taking advantage of how technology makes all of our lives convenient but some areas of life are based on principles and maturity. No amount of technology is going to exempt you of going through the maturation process of earning your economic independence from your parents home. As much as your parents love you and genuinely want to help you….secretly they want you to be fully functional independent adult not dependent on them to provide things like food, clothes, shelter and other basic necessities for you. 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. Let’s get started with the first thing….

1. Create a career and economic plan of action for the next 10-15 years of your life with deadlines. Sometimes, we make something very simple become very complicated, all because we are unwilling to take action. Creating a plan for your economic life and independence is simple as you getting a notebook with a pen and paper to start writing. The career and economic plan may start off something like this…

a. What do I want to do with my life after high school in terms of dreams and aspirations? Write it

b. What type of job or business do I want to start now? Write it down. If you are struggling with this
part of the plan, you can check out the FREE DREAM Career Guide to help you figure out the ideal job,
career path or business specifically tailored to you.

c. Depending on what job, career path or business you decide on, what tools, certifications, equipment,
specific education or overall resources will you need to get started? Write it down

d. Depending on the length of time your career or business aspirations take, what will you do to earn
money to take care of your basic needs in the meantime? Write it down
If you are looking for in-depth industry specific career and business aspirations tailored to you,
then check out our resource to get your tailor-made career and/or business guidance specific to YOU.

e. Based on personal preferences, what type of house, apartment or tiny house do you want to live in? Do
you want to rent, own, sublease? How much per month will it cost you to live there? Will the job,
career or business be able help you pay the monthly living expenses? Are you familiar with what a
budget is? Just in case you don’t know, the definition of a budget is a plan you write down to decide
how you will spend your money each month. A budget helps you make sure you will have enough money
every month. Without a budget, you might run out of money before your next paycheck. It also shows you
how much money you make and how much money you spend. Click here to view an example of a budget to start your responsible financial journey.

To some of you, this laundry list of things may sound like a lot to do, but imagine going through your adult life aimlessly without a plan. Unfortunately, I had to learn the hard way by having LIFE knock me down a few times for me to understand why this wise person once quoted, “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail”. You would not believe how truthful quote describes our lives. I also do not want you to miss my emphasis on WRITING THESE THINGS DOWN. The first step to taking the necessary action, it to document it, then take action.

In the next portion of our 6-Part Series, we will talk about learning about how your personal credit works NOW before your credit ends up trapping you financially. I want you new or soon to be graduates to walk around the hot burning fire hoops I had to experience in my first few years after graduating from high school. It’s always better to learn from other people’s mistakes than enduring them yourself. As always, if you have questions or concerns, please reach out to me at mentorshelly3@gmail.com or click on the gray “Send Voicemail” tab on the right side of the screen to leave me a voicemail message and I will return the call within 24-48 hours.

3 Nonverbal Queues that can ruin your chances of getting the JOB you want

When going through the process of fielding job applications online and offline, finally start landing some interviews, the process can be daunting and sometimes frustrating. I understand all too well how looking for a job is truly a full-time job. Keeping your mind positive and continue to take action just one part of the process. The other part is to know what to do and the career tools to use once job/career opportunities begin to materialize. The job search becomes even more exciting when you start landing interviews…

Interviews means you are one step closer to landing the job or career opportunity, so you want to make sure you prepare with the right career tools, possible questions and responses to the questions. You also want to be aware of how you communicate nonverbally, especially during the interview. If you are looking for additional help with preparing for your next interview, check out the interview help resource interview help resource where you can get the tools you need to DOMINATE in your next interview.

Your nonverbal communicate can speak more loudly than your words in an interview, so it’s important to be aware of what you are communicating to the interviewer. Here are 3 nonverbal queues that could jeopardize your chances of landing the interview…

1st Queue Not speaking clearly or loud enough for the interviewer to make understand what you are saying. It’s so important to speak loud enough, but not too loud, like your at a ball game screaming…well, you get the point. Your tone of voice is also important. Speaking in a monotone voice can communicate to the interviewer that you are bored or uninterested in the position you are discussing. Even if you say the right things, the monotone voice can kill your chances. If you are looking for more customized help or coaching through the interview process, check this resource to get your industry specific interview coaching to handle your next interview like a BOSS!!

2nd Queue Shrugging your shoulders with your head down, especially when speaking with the interviewer(s). It’s important to present yourself like a confident candidate, even with virtual interviews. It helps communicate to the interviewer that you are confident with your experience and demonstrate how your unique qualifications help their organization. Believe it or not, your body language is more than fifty percent of your communication.

3rd Queue Facial expression that expresses negativity. Your facial expression speaks volumes without saying a word. If you face looks like you just smelled some disgusting garbage, you will not be received well by the interviewer. You have to be mindful of your facial expressions especially when someone says something you don’t like or agree with. You always have to keep positive and slight smiling face, which I refer to as keeping your “game face” on. If someone’s face is not pleasant, do you want to keep looking at them? So why do you think the interviewer wants to look at your facial expressions when it’s unpleasant? I just want to bring that point the fore. If you looking for more customized help with your interviews, check out this interview resource, so you can truly set yourself up to WIN in the job market.
