How To Ace Your Next Interview With These Smart Tips

Quick tips to use immediately in preparation for your next interview.

Today’s post is about interviews. I am going to give you two quick tips to use today to help you prepare for your next interview.

Depending on who you ask, interviews can be either extremely intimidating and a waste of time or they can be a lot of fun and a great way to showcase your personality and your skills.

I used to struggle with interviews, and even now, I was really surprised when I found myself getting nervous during an interview. It happens. I still got the job offer.

Okay, let’s begin.

Tip #1: Write out your answers

So what I found has worked best for me for the past 10 years is preparing in advance for the interview. Instead of trying to come up with answers on the spot, I wrote down my answers ahead of time and practiced saying them. This works very well since we know that most interviews a similar pattern. The very first question is always something along lines of “tell me about yourself.” We also know that other common questions include “What are your strengths and weaknesses?”, “What do you know about our company?”, “Why do you want to work here?, “Why should we hire you?”, etc

What’s great about writing down your answers, is that not only can you take the time to think about how to best answer these interview questions, but you can take the time to test out different answers, or different word choices. Maybe you can find a different adjective to describe yourself, that sounds better than your original answer. You can also take advantage of apps like Grammarly to check your word and sentence structure, so you can be confident you are speaking correctly.

Finally, you can also take your notes with you into an interview and refer back to them for guidance, just like how you would use a teleprompter if you were on stage. This way, you don’t have to memorize what your answers are. Instead, you can refer to your notes to help you answer the questions.

Tip #2: Focus on staying positive

What does that even mean? It means that every time you answer a question, you need to focus on answering the question with a good outcome. Even when the question itself is negative, or bad.

A good example is “Tell me about your weaknesses”. How do you answer this question while presenting yourself as a good candidate? I have a different few ideas about to address this. One of the easiest ways is to show what you are currently doing to work on your weaknesses.

One of my go-to answers to this question is “My weakness has been organization. I’ve noticed that I tend to focus on getting my current tasks done accurately and quickly, at the expense of not doing a good job of keeping my work organized when it is finished. The consequence of that is sometimes I need to refer to some older emails, and it takes me extra time to locate these emails. What I’ve been doing to work on this is to create separate folders in Outlook to store all my emails for a project, so when I need to locate emails for an older project, I can search the respective folder.”

Every single one of your answers is an opportunity to further sell the employer why you are the best fit for that job, that team, and that company.

Thank you. I hope you enjoyed this post and I hope it helps you prepare for your next interview.

How To Optimize Your Resume In 2019

A new year demands a new resume. The first quarter of the year is over and if you are wondering why is your old CV not working its magic, then it’s time you made some long-pending changes to your resume. Resume is your first introduction to a prospective employer or recruiter. A lot of prospective employees get rejected despite having the requisite qualification and experience for their inability to put across their suitability for the job in their resume.

Abhijit Bhaduri in an article on HBR Ascend says that a resume should pass the six second test. According to research, he says, that a recruiter spends an average of six seconds scanning through a resume, which is why the summary at the top of the resume is vital.

An Interesting Summary

The summary on the top of a resume is analogous to the headline on a news item, we read it only if we find the headline interesting. The summary should highlight your most important skills and achievements. To frame a good summary, read the job description carefully, note down words that match your knowledge, skills, and achievements. Make sure that your resume reflects these skills with adequate evidence. To customize your resume, you can also take clues from the company’s website about the job description and the company’s vision.

Keep The Order Right

Another important point to keep in mind while updating your resume is to get the order right, i.e., while listing out your accomplishments and job experience you should mention the relevant ones first. Amy Gallo in an article for HBR Ascend suggests adding an accomplishments section right after your opener (summary).

“After the accomplishments section (if you add it), list your employment history and related experience. See below for exactly what to include. Then add any relevant education. Some people want to put their education up top. That might be appropriate in academia but for a business resume, you should highlight your work experience first and save your degrees and certifications for the end,” she says.

Customize According To The Company

She also suggests skipping the Skills section. She also suggests that if you are applying for an informal company that emphasizes the importance of work-life balance, to include hobbies and interests and if applying to a more formal place to remove anything personal from your resume.

Length Of Your Resume

While the days when a resume had to be only one page are gone, there’s still a limit to how lengthy your resume should be. Ideally, keep the length of your resume to two-three pages. A resume more than three pages shows that you can’t edit.

Align Your LinkedIn Profile

Make sure your LinkedIn profile aligns with your resume. Do not copy paste from your resume but make sure that your LinkedIn profile and your resume represent you in the same way.

TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR LINKEDIN PROFILE TO GET A NEW JOB

Over the past decade, LinkedIn has become the most important social network for business professionals. The website has over 467 million members and is available in over 24 languages in more than 200 countries.

LinkedIn can be used by anyone who is interested in improving their career and expanding their contacts and business connections. Whether you are the CEO of a big company, working for a small a local business or a first year student, LinkedIn can be a powerful tool for new professional opportunities.


Did you know that LinkedIn has 11 million active job listings? And did you know that 97% of all HR professionals use LinkedIn in their recruiting efforts? This and other facts make it an important employment platform. Regarding this subject, we provide you with some tips on how to improve your LinkedIn profile to easily get noticed and hired!

1. Turn on Open Candidates in your career preferences
The Open Candidates
 feature allows job seekers to easily show recruiters that they are open to new career opportunities. To turn it on just go to your profile view, and click on Career interests in the Your Dashboard section. When inside the Career interests page, click on the button next to Let recruiters know you are open section at the top of the page and turn it ON. You should also fill out the rest of your career interests’ page with all the information you can provide about your job preferences. 

2. Write a good summary about you
Ideally the summary should not be longer than 3 to 5 short paragraphs and it should contain yourkey skillswork ambitionsunique qualifications and relevant work experiences
Finish your summary with a phrase related to your main professional interest. Don’t forget to always focus on what type of job you are seeking, don’t be too vague but also try not to be very specific because it can limit your opportunities.

3. Ask for recommendations
Recommendations are very important because they are one of the main things recruiters look atwhen they have found a prospective candidate.  They not only show up in the candidate profile but also on the recommendation writer’s page. 
Similar to your career summary, recommendations should include the main skills andaccomplishments you achieved in a specific activity/job you shared with the person recommending you. You can and should make a draft of what you want the person to talk about.
It also matters who the recommendations are from. Having five specific recommendations from actual clients are worth more than 20 general recommendations from acquaintances, according to the article “What Do Recruiters Think of LinkedIn Recommendations?

4. Check which connections can help you
Connections
 are the main LinkedIn backbone because they give strength to your profile and new opportunities. If you are interested in working with a specific company or companies, check if you have any direct connections who works for that company. That person can help you to find career opportunities. You can also search for relevant new connections who can help you reach yourcareer goals.

5. Be strategic about your endorsed skills
According to LinkedIn, people who list at least five skills receive up to 
17 times more profile views.  A lot of LinkedIn users have many skills that don’t help them stand out. You should reviewthe ones you have, delete the meaningless ones and add the key ones for the job or fields you are seeking.  It’s also important to reorder them so that the most important ones are at the top.  
Your profile also shows you the list of people who have endorsed each skills. This is important but not fundamental for recruiters. You can seek to have some credibility in your skills by asking relevant people to endorse them and also reciprocate endorsements. 

6. Customize your URL
A custom URL makes your profile more appealing and allows you to easily share and send your profile. If you do it, it will drive you to the top of Google search on your name.

To customize your URL you can go to your profile and choose the option on the right that says Edit Pubic Profile and URL. It is possible that an URL with your first and last name is not available. In that case add your middle name or initial or, if you don’t have one, add your main area of expertise.

13 Things Ridiculously Successful People Do Every Day

Having close access to ultra-successful people can yield some pretty incredible information about who they really are, what makes them tick, and, most importantly, what makes them so successful and productive.

“Whenever you see a successful person, you only see the public glories, never the private sacrifices to reach them.” – Vaibhav Shah

Kevin Kruse is one such person. He recently interviewed over 200 ultra-successful people, including 7 billionaires, 13 Olympians, and a host of accomplished entrepreneurs. One of his most revealing sources of information came from their answers to a simple open-ended question:

“What is your number one secret to productivity?”

In analyzing their responses, Kruse coded the answers to yield some fascinating suggestions. What follows are some of my favorites from Kevin’s findings.

They focus on minutes, not hours. Most people default to hour and half-hour blocks on their calendar; highly successful people know that there are 1,440 minutes in every day and that there is nothing more valuable than time. Money can be lost and made again, but time spent can never be reclaimed. As legendary Olympic gymnast Shannon Miller told Kevin, “To this day, I keep a schedule that is almost minute by minute.” You must master your minutes to master your life.

They focus on only one thing. Ultra-productive people know what their “Most Important Task” is and work on it for one to two hours each morning, without interruptions. What task will have the biggest impact on reaching your goals? What accomplishment will get you promoted at work? That’s what you should dedicate your mornings to every day.

They don’t use to-do lists. Throw away your to-do list; instead schedule everything on your calendar. It turns out that only 41% of items on to-do lists ever get done. All those undone items lead to stress and insomnia because of the Zeigarnik effect, which, in essence, means that uncompleted tasks will stay on your mind until you finish them. Highly productive people put everything on their calendar and then work and live by that calendar.

They beat procrastination with time travel. Your future self can’t be trusted. That’s because we are time inconsistent. We buy veggies today because we think we’ll eat healthy salads all week; then we throw out green rotting mush in the future. Successful people figure out what they can do now to make certain their future selves will do the right thing. Anticipate how you will self-sabotage in the future, and come up with a solution today to defeat your future self.

They make it home for dinner. Kevin first learned this one from Intel’s Andy Grove, who said, “There is always more to be done, more that should be done, always more than can be done.” Highly successful people know what they value in life. Yes, work, but also what else they value. There is no right answer, but for many, these other values include family time, exercise, and giving back. They consciously allocate their 1,440 minutes a day to each area they value (i.e., they put them on their calendar), and then they stick to that schedule.

They use a notebook. Richard Branson has said on more than one occasion that he wouldn’t have been able to build Virgin without a simple notebook, which he takes with him wherever he goes. In one interview, Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis said, “Always carry a notebook. Write everything down. . .. That is a million dollar lesson they don’t teach you in business school!” Ultra-productive people free their minds by writing everything down as the thoughts come to them.

They process e-mails only a few times a day. Ultra-productive people don’t “check” their e-mail throughout the day. They don’t respond to each vibration or ding to see who has intruded into their inbox. Instead, like everything else, they schedule time to process their e-mails quickly and efficiently. For some, that’s only once a day; for others, it’s morning, noon, and night.

They avoid meetings at all costs. When Kevin asked Mark Cuban to give his best productivity advice, he quickly responded, “Never take meetings unless someone is writing a check.” Meetings are notorious time killers. They start late, have the wrong people in them, meander around their topics, and run long. You should get out of meetings whenever you can and hold fewer of them yourself. If you do run a meeting, keep it short and to the point.

They say “no” to almost everything. Billionaire Warren Buffet once said, “The difference between successful people and very successful people is that very successful people say ‘no’ to almost everything.” And James Altucher colorfully gave Kevin this tip: “If something is not a ‘Hell Yeah!’ then it’s a no.” Remember, you only have 1,440 minutes in a day. Don’t give them away easily.

They follow the 80/20 rule. Known as the Pareto Principle, in most cases, 80% of results come from only 20% of activities. Ultra-productive people know which activities drive the greatest results. Focus on those and ignore the rest.

They delegate almost everything. Ultra-productive people don’t ask, “How can I do this task?” Instead, they ask, “How can this task get done?” They take the out of it as much as possible. Ultra-productive people don’t have control issues, and they are not micro-managers. In many cases, good enough is, well, good enough.

They touch things only once. How many times have you opened a piece of regular mail—a bill perhaps—and then put it down, only to deal with it again later? How often do you read an e-mail and then close it and leave it in your inbox to deal with later? Highly successful people try to “touch it once.” If it takes less than five or ten minutes—whatever it is—they deal with it right then and there. It reduces stress, since it won’t be in the back of their minds, and it is more efficient, since they won’t have to re-read or re-evaluate the item again in the future.

They practice a consistent morning routine. Kevin’s single greatest surprise while interviewing over 200 highly successful people was how many of them wanted to share their morning ritual with him. While he heard about a wide variety of habits, most nurtured their bodies in the morning with water, a healthy breakfast, and light exercise, and they nurtured their minds with meditation or prayer, inspirational reading, or journaling.

Bringing It All Together

You might not be an entrepreneur, an Olympian, or a billionaire (or even want to be), but their secrets just might help you to get more done in less time and assist you to stop feeling so overworked and overwhelmed.

How to Make Your Resume Stand Out, According to HR Executives

Applying for your dream job can be stressful. And while candidates have the advantage in today’s competitive job market, it’s still hard to land coveted positions. So how do you make your resume stand out among hundreds of applicants?

Hiring managers don’t have a ton of time to thoroughly look over each resume, which means you have to be judicious about what to include. From choosing the right font to deciding whether or not to include that internship, creating a resume in 2019 isn’t easy.

Beyond the basics, a resume should be the space to communicate your story, says Julie Kim, a Senior Recruiter at Jun Group, an advertising agency based in New York City. Your resume should reflect more than just what you did. A good resume includes specifics on what you’ve actually accomplished throughout your career, says Traci Schweikert, Vice President of Human Resources at POLITICO.

If you’re looking to make your resume stand out, consider these six tips from HR executives.

Customize your resume for your industry

People are often encouraged to include personality in their resume, but unless they are applying for a job in a creative industry, they may want to rethink that strategy. “A lot of pictures and fonts and colors and a whole lot of personality just doesn’t align with the jobs we have here,” says Schweikert, whose team recruits for positions in sales, product and marketing. “If I was in an organization that, for example, was in web design, then I would want to see those design elements in a resume.”

Kim agrees that resume layout is wholly dependent on the position you are applying for. “If you are applying for a designer role, I want to see something creative there. If you’re applying for a finance role, I want to see numbers,” she says.

Include keywords from the original job posting

One of the best ways to make your resume stand out is to use the job posting as a guide. Schweikert says that she often tells people that is the first place they should look when revamping their resume.

“We’ve written the job description with certain words,” Schweikert says. “And when we see a resume with those words on it, those are the resumes that instantly get our attention.”

Some companies actually conduct keyword searches when sorting through resumes, Schweikert adds, which means those terms are even more important to include if you want to secure an interview. It may sound tedious, but taking the time to customize your resume for each individual job you apply to is a surefire tactic to stand out among the pack of applicants, she says.

Be clean and concise

It can be difficult to view your resume from a hiring manager‘s perspective — but one thing many employers agree on is that simplicity goes a long way.

For starters, you never know exactly how a hiring manager will be reading your resume; they may pull it up on their phone, or go through an applicant tracking system. Schweikert suggests sticking to clean and simple resumes, since they are legible across all platforms. Hyperlinking to your portfolio or LinkedIn profile instead of including that information elsewhere on your resume is also an easy way to preserve space, she says.

Format and font are important, too. Kim says that she likes to see all titles in bold, because they catch her eye. And again, unless you are applying for a creative position, stick to a monochromatic color palette.

When applicable, consider using numbers to back up your success. “I love seeing numbers,” Kim adds. “I am personally a big number person and it can stack up your experience better than two paragraphs explaining what you do.”

Write a pithy objective

Whether you’re switching careers or feel slightly underqualified for the job you are applying for, Kim suggests including an objective at the top of your resume. This will help hiring managers understand the thought process behind your decision to change industries or why you are applying for the job. She says you can fill the gaps in between your experience by detailing the inspiration and motivation behind your move.

This objective statement should be limited to two or three sentences explaining what you are trying to accomplish and what you can contribute, Kim says.

And don’t be discouraged by the job description: Schweikert notes that it is written for the perfect candidate — and hiring managers know that — so they likely expect that you won’t fit each bullet point on a posting. There’s also a relatively simple way to determine if you’re right for the role. “Most job descriptions are written [from] most important criteria to least important criteria,” Schweikert says. “So if you’ve got a lot of the first couple of bullets of the job posting, you are probably in a pretty good place.”

Research the company’s culture

Take the time to go beyond the job description and do your research on the company. Schweikert suggests simply going on the company’s career website to see what their values are. In addition to including your professional experience on your resume, think about including information relevant to that company’s culture.

For example, if you see that a company participates in a significant amount of charitable work and you have volunteer experience, consider adding that to your resume, Schweikert says. And even if the company doesn’t mention anything about volunteering, you may want to include it anyway — about 80% of “hiring influencers” (employees who have the ability to influence the hiring process), indicated that they believe there is a relationship between volunteering and leadership ability, according to a 2016 Deloitte survey.

Reach out to your network

Arranging informational interviews with people you are connected to can also help your resume stand out, according to Schweikert. Most applications are submitted online, and the volume of resumes that hiring managers must sift through can be overwhelming at times — so establishing a personal connection can help you get noticed, she says. Plus, if you are invited in for an official interview, you can bring up what you discussed at the informational one. “You can say, ‘hey I did a lot of research on the organization and met with Susie Q and they shared this with me,’” Schweikert says.

After your informational interview, you can reach out to that contact and ask that they glance over your resume, making sure to pose as many specific questions as possible about how you should tailor your resume to the company or specific role, Schweikert adds. For example, if you are struggling to decide whether to include your college activities on your resume, reaching out to your connection for advice can provide invaluable insight on whether that might be important to that company.

Kim also encourages informational interviews, as they are a great opportunity to learn more about an industry, company or specific role. There is also significant value in having someone else look over your resume. “A second pair of eyes can bring a lot of fresh perspective,” she says.

3 Questions You Should Never Ask at The End of An Interview

 

So, you have just spent the last 45 minutes answering countless questions about yourself and why you’re the perfect candidate for the role. As they utter “do you have any questions?”, you breathe a sigh of relief, as this is a good indication that the interview is almost over. Hold that thought – this is not the case.

Asking questions is just as important as the interview itself – done right, it’s a great way of showing your individuality and acts as a differentiator between you and other candidates. Clients will often asses the type of questions you ask as a good measure of the depth of research you have done, your commerciality and strategic thinking. Understand what makes the company different to others in their space, USPs, latest news press or acquisitions, accolades and values! Research until you find something you are genuinely passionate about as this will translate with more credibility and align yourself with their values or mission. An interview is not an interrogation, it’s a two-way conversation and in this market, you are looking for a demonstration that the business is a good fit for you, just as they are vice versa.

Before we dive into the best questions to ask to really impress your interviewer, below are some of the deadliest questions to avoid at all costs.

#1 ALWAYS ask something!

No matter how bad you think the interview went or how much you want to run a mile without looking back, asking an insightful question will always convey your hunger for the role. ‘I don’t have any questions’ is the worst possible response to have. As much as first impressions are crucial, final impressions really do count too. It’s important that you prepare some thought-out questions to show you have done your homework and are totally engaged in the company and the role.

#2 Money should never be in your interview vocabulary

Although you may be asked about your salary expectations during the interview, NEVER ask ‘how much will I be getting paid?’. Not only does it convey that you care more about how much is going into your bank account each month rather than driving company success, you may be jumping the gun. A salary can then be negotiated, dependant on your previous experience and skills – but wait until the offer comes, or at the very least, your salary expectations are asked.

#3 When can I take a holiday?

Asking for personal requests before you have even stepped through the door is treading on thin ice. Vacations, annual leave or sick pay should be avoided, (unless of course, you have a medical requirement that the client would need to know of).

Asking such questions shows a sluggish attitude and lack of commitment to the role, something no hiring manager wants to see.

Now you know what not to ask, here are some of the best questions to ask which will really impress your hiring manager.

#1 ‘Is there anything you would like me to elaborate on?’

This is a great opportunity for the interviewer to touch on anything that may have been unclear or briefly mentioned. Any reservations can be rectified, increasing the chances of getting to the next stage and putting you back in the running for your dream job!

#2 ‘What do you like most about working for this company?’

Like most people, everyone loves talking about themselves. So, when this question is brought up, you most definitely will see a smile seep across the interviewer’s face! It opens a dialogue on a more personal level – they know everything about you, so here is your chance to get to know everything about them, especially if they are potentially your future boss.

#3 ‘What are the biggest opportunities facing the company currently?’

This question is a good indication to the interviewer that you are driven and focused on becoming a valued asset to the company and you’re ready to take on opportunities from the get-go. It allows you to visualise how ambitious the company is and where it sets its sights on over the next coming months/years. It may be wise to offer up any insights you found in your research to show you have done your due diligence and are intrigued to find out more.

Finding and preparing questions to ask your interviewer is just as important as prepping for the interview itself, therefore I would recommend preparing 2-3 questions beforehand (just in case anything you may have wanted to ask has already been covered).

Overall, it’s just as important to finish strong as well as excelling the main part of the interview. Every company you apply to will work differently, so make sure you tailor your questions to fit the company perfectly. This concluding piece can really stoop some people. Close strong. Strut out of there knowing you nailed it and left a lasting impression!

Staying ahead in the modern workplace

Keeping your skills current and flexible is crucial to secure a good role and be successful

In an ever-changing business climate, keeping your skills current and flexible is crucial to secure a good role and be successful.

Core skills such as marketing, financials, project management, leadership, problem-solving and so on are no longer enough – a blend of additional soft skills are crucial to navigating the current business landscape.

A good communicator

The umbrella of communication covers a wide range of skills. Effective communication goes further than the verbal, non-verbal and written categories. Skills in listening, empathy, respect, friendliness and clarity are expected skills. But in any industry, employees are expected to engage with people from all backgrounds, ages, and cultures, and being able to connect with as wide a variety of people as possible is a valuable skill. Being able to adapt your communications skills to suit your customers, co-workers and in some cases, your location will widen opportunities to work within different cultures. Cultural competence is often overlooked as a key leadership skill. Developing it relies on the observation of customs and etiquette in order to do business with confidence.

Data analysis

A key skill that has expanded in recent years is the ability to analyse data. Once confined to the IT sector, these skills are now applied to sales, marketing and human resources, or any area of business that produces data. Data analysis doesn’t just help target customers, but can also be used to identify strengths to build on and weaknesses to address, to make the business stronger. If you’re looking to develop skills in data analytics, it’s advisable to enroll on a good course to get started. There are also good resources around the web to help build on this valuable skill.

The drive to keep evolving your skills

Don’t be a dinosaur. The willingness to learn and reinvent yourself is a skill in itself. Broaden your horizons, update your existing skill sets, and don’t be afraid of change. Employers are more likely to take on candidates with a flexible attitude and an appetite for developing new skills. Whatever stage you are at in your career, whether you’re just starting out or nearing retirement, the ability to adapt will help you keep pace.

It’s important to keep your skills fresh and relevant not just to the industry you’re working in, but to the general social climate, too. Whether these skills come naturally or not, don’t be afraid to do research, attend courses and gain experience. Make sure you detail them on your C.V. to market yourself when you’re applying for a new role.

Skills Hospitality Employers look for

 

  1. Building connections
    Success in hospitality management jobs depends on a great deal on a person’s ability to make positive connections with clients, guests, vendors, and even other employees. After all, the industry is all about comfort and service. To let employers know that you are great at making connections, use keywords (which are bolded throughout this article) like relationship building, vendor management, client management, guest relations, and team leadership in your job descriptions. Highlight accomplishments that demonstrate how you were able to have positive crisis communications by developing positive relationships that lasted. Multitasking
    At all levels, careers in hospitality require employees to handle multiple responsibilities simultaneously. On a typical day, a hotel manager might have to negotiate a contract with a vacuum rental company, handle a dissatisfied guest, fill out paperwork for an employee injured in a kitchen fire, and keep a smile on his or her face to greet new guests, all in the course of one afternoon. Employers want to know you can handle the fast paced, varied workload. Be sure to highlight these skills with keywords like organisational skills, proven time management expertise, and phrases that highlight your ability to adapt quickly to guests’ needs and manage simultaneous projects.

    3. Attention to detail
    It’s the little things that make a guest’s experience extraordinary. To excel at creating that extraordinary experience, everything from making sure the flowers are fresh to making sure every busboy wears a clean uniform must be attended to, and successful hospitality managers must be excellent at addressing each detail. As a prospective hospitality manager, use your resume and cover letter to highlight specific instances where these skills shone through. Phrases like: exceed guests’ expectations and ability to focus on crucial guest details will highlight this ability for potential employers and show them you have gone the extra mile for previous employers—and are ready to do it again for them.

    4. Technical and language skills
    Computer skills and language skills are two areas of technical expertise that make a hospitality manager stand out from the pack. Be sure to highlight any technical expertise on your resume. Definitely take the opportunity to mention specific programs that you are particularly adept at or special training that you have received at past jobs. For languages, accurately represent your abilities and indicate whether your skill with the language is basic, conversational, or fluent.

    5. Flexibility
    Hospitality managers often have unusual hours or longer hours than a basic desk job. On the job, they must be ready to switch gears at a moment’s notice if unexpected situations arise. Keywords like: adaptable, versatile, and resourceful will let employers know that you are enthusiastic about the unique opportunities that hospitality careers present and flexible in how you will respond to their company’s needs. It is also very important to provide key examples to demonstrate your flexibility. For example, you can add: “Dedicated 15 years of guest management service under two re-organizational changes.”

    As reported by the Washington Post, in some areas, hospitality is the sector seeing the most growth these days. As a result, hospitality managers are in high demand, yet truly qualified candidates are hard to find. Employers are looking for you! So use these tips and keywords on your resume and you’ll find soon that employers are knocking on your door.

Annual Survey On Data Science Recruitment In India 2018

Indian and multinational companies from almost every industry — be it Fortune 500 name or a local startup — are hiring data science experts to help them garner insights from big data. The entire industry has seen a sharp increase in demand for highly-skilled professionals. Companies are also on a constant lookout for talented persons who can fill the gap. Our survey for June 2018 endeavoured to find out the current scenario of hiring trends and jobs available in data science.

The data science sector is flourishing to such an extent that our earlier Jobs Survey published in association with Edvancer revealed that more than 90,000 job openings in data science and related fields are being advertised in India as of now.

1. Importance Of Formal Education:

We asked our survey takers to tell us if a degree or formal education in data science was necessary to get a job in data science. The respondents clearly thought it was.

  • 33% of respondents thought that formal education was crucial to get a job in this sector. This is in keeping with the current trend in the industry.
  • 28.3% respondents thought it was important as it can be clearly seen by the increasing reliance by employees as well as students on MOOCs to keep themselves updated.
  • Only a minority of the respondents — 11% — thought formal education was completely unnecessary.

2. Programming Experience:

Our data clearly shows that a vast majority of the respondents think that experience in programming was important to get a data science-related job. In fact, the numbers show:

  • 48% of the respondents think that prior experience was important to get a job in the new tech sector.
  • 29% respondents thought that it was crucial for their career. This is in line with what the organisations have been thinking. Most of the companies in new tech think that educating an employee for a basic skill like programming can be time-consuming and a drain on resources.

 

3. Work Experience:

A clear majority of our respondents have shown that having an experience in a similar field is definitely helpful in landing a job in data science.

  • For example, a clear 35.8% people have said that a job experience is crucial in data science sector.
  • Another 26.2% have said that it is important. This is in keeping with studies which have shown that a majority of companies in the analytics and data science sector prefer candidates with five or more years of work experience.
  • Only 2% of the survey takers did not agree with the statement.

 

4. Transition From Non-Data Science Background To New Tech:

This questions seemed to have stumped our respondents. Here, the answers seem of two polar opposite opinions. Firstly, almost 30% of the people did not have an opinion about the matter.

  • Otherwise, 15.2% of the respondents thought it was very difficult to make the transition from a non-tech background to data science.
  • 23.2% thought it was difficult, but not impossible to do so. This response is clearly not surprising, given the great pace at which the industry is progressing. It is already hard for people in the industry to keep up with changing trends, and therefore jumping into a vibrant sector suca as data science is perceived as very difficult.
  • On the other hand, only 5.6% people thought it was very easy to do so.

 

5. How To Get An Entry-Level Job In Data Science:

This question had a clear-cut answer — perhaps because of the personal experiences of our respondents.

  • 42.7% people thought that internship was the best way to make your way into a company. You make contacts, meet mentors and friends that last for a lifetime.
  • 21.8% respondents voted joining data science communities or networking as the great way to get jobs.

 

6. What Language Should An Aspiring Data Scientist Learn First:

Having a mastery over one or more programming languages is considered a great asset in the data science and analytics community. Here, our respondents — job seekers as well as recruiters — had a clear idea about what languages were the most popular in the market right now.

  • Python was clearly the most popular language for data science practitioners as well as learners. Over 47% respondents said that it was crucial for job seekers to know this language to get an opportunity in data science.
  • The next favourite language was R at 39%

 

7. Top Skills For Data Scientists:

Our respondents identified three important skills for anyone to flourish in a data science-related field:

  • Machine learning at 28%
  • Business intelligence at 17%
  • Data mining came in next with 10% votes

Professionals as well as students are now relying heavily on massive online open courses. Our survey clearly indicates that:

  • 33% of the respondents relied on MOOCs extensively to upgrade their skills in new tech and keep themselves updated with emerging technologies.
  • On the other hand, 28% used it frequently for the same purpose.
  • Only 9% of the respondents said that they didn’t use MOOCs at all.

 

9. How To Find A Job In Data Science:

Here, the answers were unanimous, as well as expected.

  • At 47.1% LinkedIn, the social networking website for professionals seems to be the first choice for looking for as well as posting a job in data science.
  • The next popular way to find a job is checking with friends and acquaintances to look for employment opportunities at 19%.
  • This is followed by popular job portal Naukri at 15.7%

 

10. Which City Has Most Job Opportunities For A Data Scientist:

This question had a congruent, solid vote for Bengaluru with 73% of respondents saying that the Garden City had the best job opportunities in new tech. The next favourite was Mumbai at 13.9%.

 

11. Which Industry Holds The Most Opportunities For Data Scientists:

Data scientists are in great demand, as discussed above. The results are thus scattered across several sectors.

  • Most of the industries starting with IT and services at 26.8%
  • Followed by e-commerce at 23.6%
  • And banking at 23.6%
