Career Insurance What Is It?

Is this you in the picture?

There are many types of insurance that we are paying on a regular basis, and we don’t typically reflect too much on that since it has become routine.  It is a guarantee of compensation for specified loss, damage, illness, or death.  But what can an individual do to protect their job, their income without which their mere existence is jeopardized?

Protect your job through your skills.

The job market changed and today it is almost impossible to protect any job.  World events destabilize the job market and employers need to react quickly.  Employees have no protection against such events regardless of the position within the organization. So, what are they to do to insure themselves against such possibilities?  The answer is in continuously striving for opportunities to learn new skills and improve on the existing ones.  Think about your answer if during a job interview you were asked to name two or three new things that you have learned during the last year.  Employers want to see skills and ambitious personality learning new skills because they know that the future in business is going to demand something that can not even be predicted today.

Companies are adapting fast – but are you?

There are a myriad of companies developing tools, software, and systems for sourcing talent.  Employers are investing in such products because they want to stay competitive. The supply of applicants or even passive candidates (A passive candidate is employed, but not currently looking for a new opportunity) is vast and they need tools to effectively sift through the many thousands of them.  Automation is the answer.

The interviewing process changed

Once the vast number of potential candidates has been narrowed down to a reasonable number, they enter another phase in this competition.  Companies need to be careful with their expenses and they are  investing in new and existing technology.  For example, more and more companies are using not only video or Zoom interviewing but  AVI or Asynchronous Video Interviews. Candidates are asked to interview on camera without an interviewer present.  After they are sent a link to such a software they are given between six to ten questions to which they have only a short time to answer.  This process results in short video which sent to the interviewing team.  Each team member can make comments and score each candidate. The process seems very fragmented but certainly efficient.  Once the candidate passed this phase, he or she is invited for a video interview.  And now the big question is how many people are prepared to make a great impression via this videoing system and at the same time able to deliver great interview answers within merely seconds.

The business environment changes. The market goes up and down, people leave and get hired, customers come and go. Amidst all this change, however, one thing stays relatively consistent—the job interview. That crucial hour or so is your opportunity to showcase yourself and make a compelling case why you’re the best fit for the job. While the job interview is the one piece of the process you have the most control over, all too often candidates wreck their chances with poor showings. It doesn’t have to be that way. In this lively and engaging session led by Dr. Michael Brenner of Right Chord Leadership, you’ll learn the three essential P’s for interview success: Prepare, Practice, and Perform. How well you execute the three P’s will have a profound impact on your interviewing success! Dr. Brenner will cover the questions you’re most likely to be asked and how to develop great answers that hit the mark.

Friday, Sept 10, 2021, 9:45-12 PM ET PSG of Mercer County welcomes Tamarra Causley Robinson – ‘How to Deal with Impact of Job Loss on Family/Relationships’. When job loss occurs, one of the first things we think to do is to triage the situation. Most activities that take place are external: Update your resume, Update your LinkedIn profile and dust off your interview skills. It’s time to tell the world about who you are and what you can do for them. Oftentimes, we don’t talk about the emotional and psychological affects of job loss for the individual and secondarily about its affect on everyone else in the household (immediate and extended family & friends).This discussion will focus solely on steps one can take to take better care of themselves during this time of transition and how to increase the awareness around how to preserve and potentially strengthen our relationship at home.

SPEAKERS BUREAU for Job Search Networking Groups

Occasionally, job-search-networking-group-leaders ask me if I know people that are willing to speak to their respective groups.  Obviously, nowadays everything is via video.  Several years ago, I created a mini speakers bureau list which I used to forward.  Lately, such requests became more frequent.  Subsequently, I decided to update same.  If you are interested and wish that I add your name to the list, please fill out this form https://bit.ly/3pvPnGd  and I would gladly do so.  Happy to help.
