Completing Tasks

When you are having a problem completing a task, please try to research the answer before asking your employer.  You may be given the task for several reasons.  One reason may be that the employer is testing you to see how well you can do it on your own.  Another reason may be that the employer does not know how to do it so they have asked you to do it for them.

Catching An Employer's Attention When Emailing an Application

To catch an employer's attention when emailing an application, ensure to do the following.

  • Know what you are applying for. You should be able to know at least the background of the company you wish to apply for. This will have a great effect during the interview.
  • Include the Position you are applying for in the subject. If there is a contact person (the one who posted the job vacancy) include the name and put in ATTN: on the subject.
  • Review your resume prior to sending. You do not watch to turn off the employer during a resume screening by writing misspelled words, wrong grammar senteces and Objectives that are obviously copied from the internet.
  • In writing an email, think of yourself as standing infront to the employer while writing the cover letter. Never use abbreviated words. Remember, you are applying for a job and not writing to a friend.
Interview Jitters

First rule in coming to an interview is, you must be prepared.

Know the background of the company. Search on the net, know what type of indusctry they are in, type of environment they are in, how big is the company, how long did they exist, their products.

You must have 5-year 10-year plans and you must know to get it. Show your worth but be sure not to the point that you are a show-off. If you are prepared, then you can be relaxed.

Never argue with the interviewer, if they are very rough or bossy, for sure they are just trying to see how you will react in a toxic environment and they to see how are you going to handle pressure or tension.

Be neat and look professional. Don't come in loose round neck shirt and rubber shoes. If you have a long hair tidy them up. Make sure you do not stink, I mean all over, body, mouth, no poop under your shoes, etc.
