World's Most Successful Job Placement Model

U.S. Department of Labor Statistics reports only twenty percent of job seekers ... who applied for jobs in the last year were invited to job interviews. That means, of the millions of job applicants who organized and managed their own job search, a whopping eighty percent failed. Those facts drive this article about why it’s important to keep your job search organized, and on track, using proven and verifiable methods.

Facts are … the most popular and successful job placement model around the world today is the one highlighted in this article – that is - the four step “performance based,” model.

The four primary job placement steps are as follows:

Career Assessment; Employer ID & Outreach; Job Interview; and Job Offer Follow up.

4 Primary Job Placement Steps PLAY MP3 CLIP (or download)

The four steps are based on actual job placement tasks, put in an order to generate the most direct route to a optimum job offer.

These four steps are little used outside recruitment based job search circles. Still, many job applicants assume they have a good understanding of these fundamental job search activities, because the subjects sound so familiar to our ears. For instance, consider these common job search topics:

What makes a good resume?

From whom do you collect job references?

How does one identify possible employers?

Do those topics sound somewhat familiar to you? Of course they do. Most employable adults, young to elderly, have heard about such job search related topics. And that’s where a fundamental misunderstanding finds life, in those assumptions. You see, the four job placement steps revealed in this report are simple, and powerful, but subtle as discipline, in their activation.

When job candidates insist their credentials be presented in a certain style or presentation format, or that certain resume entries or professional references remain - or be excluded – depending upon the whim of the applicant – instead of the hiring needs of the employer - that’s when applicants begin to change the hiring process. As reported above, Department of Labor Statistics report that such applicants eventually fall into the roughly 80% of job applicants who ARE NOT interviewed for jobs. Mostly, that 80% is made up of people who misapplied topics on resume and other hiring documents. In an executive search, or recruitment environment, the recruiter working with the job candidate would step in and clarify each step of the job placement process. Meaning to say – the recruiter would make certain that resumes address key employer workplace hiring needs, and cover topics that address workplace solutions that interest the employer.

By following the precepts of this report, you organize a customized job search plan that coordinates your job activities and documents to stay focused on your job search goals, and identify job title specific skills and background that the employer seeks

Try to dispel your current job search methodology and belief systems and replace those with proven, effective job placement tactics - tactics expressed through four primary job placement steps - Assessment – Outreach – Job Interview – and Follow Through.

80% Of All Resumes Fail To Set Job Interviews

……………..……..

Near 80% Of All Resumes

Fail To Set A Job Interview!

HOW YOUR RESUME - ALONE

CAN SET A JOB INTERVIEW

It’s all true … if your resume is constructed correctly, each person who reads it will endorse it forward to the hiring authority. And, yes, only two-out-of-ten resumes submitted for consideration to hiring firms ever get that follow-up contact from the company to organize a telephone or face-to-face job interview. What are the secrets to that ‘constructed correctly’ part of the sentence above? They are really quite practical. All you do is construct the resume to exactly match the workplace needs of the prospective employer. Simple, huh? You'd think so. But making that match between resume content and workplace skill and experience, that's the dicey work in this matter.

The Job Search Show - on JobNewsRadio.com

Executive Search specialists address this issue each time they present a new job candidate to a client company. If their job seeker’s resume content is too far off target from the workplace requirements of the hiring firm, there may be lingering second thoughts in the mind of the employer, despite reassurances from the attending recruiter.

When a job candidate submits a resume, that document should be customized to match the employer's workplace hiring needs. The resume should outline the primary functions of the job sought, by citing real examples from the job candidate's work history that illustrate how he or she found solutions to the very same problems the employer is trying to solve on their work floor. Those examples should also be quantified, by inserting numerical expressions that represent the results of the workplace solutions your resume presents (i.e. cut annual costs by 18%, monthly sales increase of 23%).

The Job Search Show - Download or Play Job Search MP3

Download or Play this MP3 sample from "The Job Search Show," where co-host Mark Baber, an experienced executive search recruiter, talks for a few minutes about the concept of matching resume content to address specific workplace needs of a prospective employer. In other words, how and why to customize a resume when it is to be submitted to a career level employer prospect.

Then check out some of these other job search resources, to organize and understand how your resume or CV, for any serious, career level employment position, should become the outline from which the employer can read the reasons you are the best candidate for the job at hand.

And as a follow-up thought – what if that customized resume served two purposes? What if it was also the outline for any job interview that may occur with that same employer?

Choose The Right Agency For Health Care Job

Posted by Bryan Moore

................................................................................................................................

Choose the

right agency

for your next health care job

Looking for a stable job? ... Be it permanent, per diem, or part time, being associated with a staffing agency is always the better choice. Along with doctors, teachers, administrative assistants and Web designers, staffing agencies are great for flexibility and filling specialized positions. A lot of companies these days rely heavily on staffing companies to meet their staffing requirements. There are a lot of staffing companies which cater solely to the corporate. They know the requirements very well that the candidate these staffing companies recruit would best suit the needs of the corporate.

Likewise, the medical industry too depends on staffing agencies because they know these recruiters will locate and place qualified personnel for permanent, contract or per diem positions. So whenever these medical facilities have job openings, they rely on medical staffing agencies to help meet their needs. Gone are those days when you had to stick on to a company for ages. These kind of thoughts are outdated and do not fit into the success criteria anymore. With many corporate struggling hard to keep themselves in business, people prefer to work for a medium sized company which has a reputation of keeping its employees happy. In such situations it would be better to approach a staffing company, who’ll be the best choice to get yourself into a new job. They can be relied upon when there is a need for both a position and relocation.

Staffing Agency Advantages

Health care staffing companies are on the rise thanks to the unending list of diseases and illness that inspire more and more health care facilities to be open in every part of the world on a rapid pace. The demand for healthcare professionals has been ever growing and never seems to end. This is a primary reason why there are a lot of health care professionals in the making and the best of them get placed in the best hospitals for a very fat pay check. Earlier there used to be only female nurses, but of late there has been a steady increase in the number of male nurses as well. Agencies which specialize in health care staffing would have to select a candidate using a far greater care as it requires high levels of commitment and professionalism.

Health care staffing services allow better flexibility as far as contract work, assignment and job location for travel nurses or per diem staff. People prefer to accept smaller assignments comprising of few weeks rather than having to remain in one position or location for a year or more. They have the option of choosing different assignments in different locations, thereby eliminating the factor of getting monotonous, working at the same place. This option will help the health care professionals like nurses see a steady flow of jobs now and in the future.

Getting associated with a health care staffing agency can turn out to be a useful link for permanent employment, if you choose. These agencies offer a wealth of knowledge about health careers, ongoing and future trends, in addition to skills and certifications that employers want. Moreover, a health care staffing agency will be able to offer highly competitive wages, which will provide not only financial opportunity but also advanced employment preferences.

Find a Job by Social Networking

Find a Job by Social Networking

By Eric B Burke

There are many ways to find jobs, and many jobs out there that are looking to hire someone like you. The single best way of finding a job is through your social groups, and by networking socially. In fact statistically the majority of people with 100k+ jobs found them by knowing the right person who got them their job. So what is the trick? It isn't already knowing the right person, although that helps, but instead it is meeting the right person.

Using Your Contacts To Generate Job Opportunities

Whether or not you are good at meeting new people, you can easily meet the right person to get you a job. First of all it is important to analyze the resources currently available to you. This means brainstorming anyone who might know someone else that can get you a job. Guess what? That's probably 90% of the people you know. The other 10% are retired, and keep to themselves.

By asking your acquaintances to introduce you to people to help you find a job you will build a bigger network. Ask an acquaintance at the gym if they know anybody that has positions available in a company, or they can introduce you to anyone that may be able to point you in the right direction. If you don't have many friends that can help, start by going to the local grocery store, and if you see someone reading a label, walk beside them and strike up conversation about the contents of the food, or anything you can think of. Then as you set a friendly tone between you and the person, ask them if they can help you find a job. If not tell them it was a pleasure, and go find someone else. By doing this you will meet more and more people, and your network will grow, and you will inevitably find a job.

If you're not a people person then you're not out of luck. By the inception of social networks online, you're able to meet new friends through the internet that may be able to help you. The trick here is to start with people you know, or people that won't be alarmed if you suddenly contact them in regards to a job. Don't just get in touch with anyone, but join a Facebook group, or follow a twitter feed. Leave comments on other peoples pages letting any reader know what you're looking for. The great part about doing this is that people will contact you to hire you.

Got A Tough Job Interview?

HOW ARE YOU GOING TO HANDLE IT ... when you learn that your job interview is going to be a group interview? What do you wear? How do your prepare?

Take a few minutes, listen to the job search mp3 titled: "Taking On Tough Job Interviews." Learn some of the ways other job candidates successfully handled these unique job interview styles, before you get invited to attend one.

JOB SEARCH PERSONALITY

Posted by Mark Baber
Apr 24 2010

...................................................................

Job Personality Type And Your Job Search

All of us have a personality type, ... in fact, one of the 16 possibilities according to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. The personality typing instrument was developed by the mother and daughter team of Katharine Myers and Isabel Myers-Briggs Personality over 50 years ago and is used around the world. As you find yourself job searching, you will probably find yourself excelling at some of the tasks and shrinking with others. Yes, the MBTI® would say that your “type” showing up.

Job searching for anyone can bring can elicit a range of emotions from anticipation, confidence, anxiety, hopelessness, and more. How you self manage the emotional roller coaster of job searching and the task of finding employment varies on your personal circumstance, but your personality “type” is definitely a factor that impacts your job search success.

Our personality type is determined by these preferences:

EXTRAVERSION or INTROVERSION

SENSING or INTUITION

THINKING or FEELING

JUDGING or PERCEIVING

How does “type” affect your search? Depending on your preference, you will probably use an approach that feels most natural or comfortable. The approach often feels like the best way for you, but it’s not the only way. Often the challenge of job seeking requires us to step out of our comfort zone. That might require that you reach to the other side from time to time to use the less preferred way for you. Preferences are not about right and wrong, but knowing that we can flip the coin over and see what’s on the other side that might serve us better.

Looking for work or being between jobs can be a period of down time, being at home, having less social contact than being with coworkers, and having more solitude. This time will probably appeal to a person with a preference for Introversion rather than Extraversion. Those with a preference for Introversion gain their energy from having time alone to reflect and be with their thoughts or feelings. On the other hand, those with a preference for Extraversion, generally find themselves more energized with the phone calling or networking meetings…a time to be with people. Both of these preferences are helpful in a job search.

When job searching, those with a preference for Intuition generally embrace the possibilities for career change. Those who prefer Sensing will be drawn to job openings that exist and are in the newspaper, online, and heard of through word-of-mouth. Those who prefer Sensing obtain their information through their senses and can discern it as real.

A job seeker may decide to apply for a position, hire an outplacement specialist, make a career change…any of these decisions can be made, but the “how” to decide will be determined by the preference. The firm-minder Thinker will use the skills of logic, analysis, and objectivity to make a decision. The Feeler is more subjective and interpersonally involved with the emotion and impact of the decision.

The next preference of Judging or Perceiving is how we deal with the world, schedule our day, live our life. The job seeker who prefers Judging enjoys being in control with a planned, scheduled day with a list of tasks and goals. People who prefer to use the Perceiving process to conduct their day tend to remain flexible and open to new information.

Next time you find yourself job searching, you will find you have a preference or comfort level to do certain tasks much like the preference of using your right hand or left hand. Likewise, there is personal growth in using the less dominant part of our personality to yield the success we want. Personality Type & Job Search

Internet Job Search Advice

MP3 Download 

The 21st Century ... has brought along some big changes in how a job search is conducted.

Listen now at JobNewsRadio.com

Just a generation ago ... a resume was a simple sheet of paper, maybe two, that outlined basic job duties, job title, name of supervisor, street address, company name(s), home phone number, and your favorite hobbies. Things have changed.

Nowadays, your resume or CV must clearly express your skills and achievements in a professioinal manner, and exactly fit the workplace needs and demeanor of the employer with whom you seek employment.

Same holds true when your job search is performed via internet exchanges, where your emails, digital resumes and your onlline activities often become a factor towards determining how well you, as a job candidate, fit a certain job; qualifying measures that always seem to take place prior to any first telephone or face-to-face meeting between job candidate and hiring authorities.

When you consider that most of your 'first contact' with employers, these 21st Century days, is impersonal, done by email, or web-form, at a corporate website or onlilne job bank, there is little wonder that the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that near eighty-percent of resumes received by internet do not pass through to the office of the hiring authority. Imagine that, only two-out-of-ten resumes can best the online resume submission process! By improving the ways you communicate with employers online, you increase your odds of setting a job interview.

Internet Job Search Tips

Listen to "The Internet Job Search," audio, a cut from the "Job Search Digest - Vol. 1" CD release. It's a job search article by JobNewsRadio.com that covers important topics should you consider as you switch on the laptop or PC, cozy up to the screen and begin to work on your online job search.
