3 Reasons why you should keep investing in your education

3 Reasons Why You Should Keep Investing in Your Education
3 Reasons Why You Should Keep Investing in Your Education     We often believe that once we finish high school and college, there will never be a need to sit down and learn again. Still, as the business world is growing at a rapid pace, there are always ways in which you can improve. And if you want to keep up with the newest trends in business, you should always keep investing in your education. We have come up with 3 reasons why continuous education is important and which might just get you motivated to sign up for a new course.  

You will be happier

We all know that learning can be daunting and take up a lot of your time. But every new thing you learn is always guaranteed to make you feel happier. Even if it is something small like a new card game, learning a new skill. But learning something that your business career can benefit from is a completely different experience. Not only will you know something new but you will also be able to employ it in your office and do better at work. Also, when you learn something new it shows you that you can improve even more and that any obstacles you believed you were there are non-existent. Not to mention that with every course you take, your employers are going to think more of you until you eventually become a person they can trust everything with.  

Your value will constantly grow

Becoming an irreplaceable employee is quite difficult. But, if you keep investing in your education you value will constantly grow and you will become a better employee. For example, if you can just sell products you are valued as a regular employee. If you can sell, as well as design and promote products you are guaranteed to be valued as one of the most important employees in the company. Of course, not only that but continuous education will help you grow as a person. The more you know the more other will be able to rely on you and think of you more. So, if you want your value to keep growing, you shouldn’t miss out on any opportunity to learn new skills. Leadership and communication courses are just some of the things you should think about investing in. Also, no matter what niche you are working in, business writing courses are something you can always benefit from.  

You will be more humble

Another thing continuous education helps you with is staying humble. And there are many ways you can benefit from this. Being humble will allow you to keep an open mind and become interested in the things you have never heard about. On the other hand, believing that you know absolutely everything will make you arrogant, which is never a good thing in the business world. There is something new around every corner and being ready to learn and accept new things can do wonders for your life. It will help you grow both as a person and as an employee. Also, everyone else will know that you always ready to push the envelope, which means they will constantly approach you with new ideas and opportunities. In addition, you will always appear more charming and easy to work with. Continuous education is something you should always be ready to invest in. Every new skill and lesson you learn will help you grow and move up in the business world. Having all of this in mind, you should always keep searching for some new courses you can take.

4 Reasons why your employee training is not getting you results… and what to do about it

4 Reasons why your employee training is not getting you results… and what to do about it
 4 Reasons why your employee training is not getting you results… and what to do about it   Training your employees isn’t cheap. Some training providers I know can make hundreds, or even thousands, from an afternoon’s work. No wonder most organisations’ training budgets creep up each year, not down. Not to mention that training also takes your employees away from their duties for hours, or even longer, which means the most immediate effect of training is a loss of productivity! With this in mind, employee training had better deliver some seriously useful results. But, does it? Unfortunately, in all too many cases, employee training just doesn’t work. So, if yours is not doing the job, you aren’t alone. But when you know the most common reasons why employee training flops, you can put things right and start getting the value your business needs. Here are some of the most frequent issues:

1. There’s no training strategy

Do you organise your training ad-hoc, to deal with skills gaps as you spot them? Do you base your plans on training provider scare stories, like “Your company is at risk without this course”? Or simply follow the latest trends, like e-learning, because they sound like a nice idea at the time? If so, then it’s difficult to know if your training is working or not – because no goal has been set for the training to achieve. Many companies commit themselves to long-term staff training – even to becoming a ‘learning organisation’ – because they believe (rightly) that it can improve performance. But, you need to have the right learning. And you can only choose the right learning if you have a plan in place. Otherwise, you are simply training for the sake of it. The outcomes might be of no use to your business whatsoever!

Start planning for success

It’s less daunting than you think to create a staff training plan. Simply:
  1. Write down your company’s 3 most important goals. One example could be to increase your sales by 50%.
  2. Identify the skills your staff needs to achieve each goal. For the example above, these could be learning new sales skills, or increasing product knowledge.
  3. Plan a training schedule for the coming year that develops the skills your employees need.
Pretty simple, right? Best of all, you will know if your training is working – because you’ll be closer to your company goals.

2. You’re using the wrong trainers

There are many highly professional trainers around who just aren’t capable of teaching your staff the right skills. They know how to tick all the right boxes to get fancy certificates for your delegates, and they might even be entertaining speakers. The problem is, they don’t have any hands-on experience. They’ve never succeeded in the field you are trying to succeed in, so they don’t possess the skills they’re trying to teach. They can’t inspire your people. All they can really do is sell you a pile of diplomas.

Try new trainers and methods

It doesn’t have to be that way. Make some calls. Talk to as many trainers as possible about their real-world experience and methods, and see who has the most to offer. When arranging your training, make sure to always opt for quality by choosing a training provider that is well established, quality assured, and flexible. It’s also a good idea to choose the best trainer for each session, rather than being locked into one provider. This gives your programme a wider variety of methods and trainers, catering for more of your employees’ individual learning styles.

3. Your training sessions are too long

Have you ever been on a day-long training course that almost sent you to sleep? Chances are, there’s been more than one. The problems with long training sessions are numerous. They tend to involve a lot of listening or reading for your staff, which becomes boring after a while. There’s also usually a big lunch, which can make delegates tired in the afternoon. The biggest issue, though, is that it’s difficult to retain so much learning in a single session. So, your employees might only remember a few nuggets from their expensive day’s training.

Train in short bursts

Of course, we all know why the full-day training session is so common. It’s just more convenient for you and the trainer. You can break training up into smaller, more memorable chunks. But then, things get more difficult to organise. The best answer is to plan training days made up of short sessions, each of which involves a different learning style – such as group work, hands-on training, or e-learning. This can help your employees stay fresh and focused throughout the day.

4. Training isn’t being followed up

If you’ve ever learned a few Italian, French or Spanish phrases while on holiday, you’ll know that knowledge rarely sticks after you’ve stopped using it. The same goes for training. Even if you have a great training strategy in place, and the skills your employees train in are actually useful, they won’t necessarily use them once back at the workplace. A good example is IT training. In modern computing, there are quicker ways to do most things – and training your staff how to speed up their spread sheets (for example) is a brilliant way to increase productivity. But, employees are often stuck in their ways – or they may simply forget what they learn in training, before they have a chance to use it. That’s why follow-up exercises are vital for reinforcing important skills training. It’s also a great way to measure success. If your staff don’t retain knowledge after training, it might be time to try new methods.

Reinforce and evaluate staff training

A great follow-up exercise is to have your delegates come together at work, after training, and practice what they’ve learned together. They can remind each other about things they’ve forgotten and reinforce their new skills. Meanwhile, you or a line manager can evaluate the effectiveness of the training itself and encourage staff to keep using it. As I said earlier, employee training isn’t cheap. But, when you stop making mistakes, training can add huge value to your business. What do all of our reasons for training failure have in common? They prove you can’t trust your success to external (or even internal) trainers. It’s up to you to make sure your training is right for your company’s goals, delivered will, and put to good use by your employees. Author: Sam Carr, Activia.co.uk

Quick guide or fresher’s to crack their first interview

Quick guide or fresher's to crack their first interview Fresher, an informal term for a freshman, is a beginner who has very less or no experience of the domain he is about to step into. As in school and college a teacher and a professor respectively guides a fresher’s path, likewise on being graduated, an interview coach prepares him well for the professional world. Effective job interview training encourages a fresher to know the insights of a professional meeting and helps him identify the difference between the dos and don’ts of an interview. We shall now discuss herein a few interview tips for a confirmed positive outcome. Following is a list of behavioral rules and interview ethics one must always be aware of.
  1. Smile and appear confident: Always greet the interviewer with a smile and in case of a panel interviewing you, quickly roll your vision through the panellists with a smile on your face. We almost forget to greet our interviewer because of tension and stress and a straight face might reveal this to the employer directly thus, deteriorating your chance of selection in the very beginning. A candidate, who adorns a smile is believed to have a better composure and confident personality.
  2. Body language: an inappropriate body language may explicitly divulge an overstressed state of mind therefore it must be carefully handled. Avoid leaning on the chair while sitting, folding arms or playing with your ring. Adopt a sensible posture such as sitting upright, no cross legs and hands folded. You may use your hands once in a while to explain a particular point you stated.
  3. Appearance: you should be suitably dressed, following a formal code. Your hair should be neatly done. If you are a female candidate, avoid applying bright and catchy nail enamels, make use of nude shades instead, to give it a professional look altogether.
  4. Punctuality: being well in time for your interview depicts your responsible and accountable attitude. At the same time, reach the venue just 15 minutes before the interview is expected to begin in order to relax.
  5. Prepare well: Plan and rehearse you resume and prepare for the most common questions.
 
  • Tell me about yourself? When this question is put forward, the important things that you should mention are your educational background, your family background, without getting into much detail. Talking about your personality traits here and also about things you like to do in your free time, constitute the best answer.
 
  • Why should we hire you? The interviewer asks this question to know the extent of your sincerity towards the role you are being interviewed for. The appropriate answers to this question would include your skills and abilities. You need to sell yourself in the answer, highlighting your attributes. This question is an opportunity to tell the employers that you are suitable for the job. A company looks for candidates that add value to their organization. Skills related to this kind of a job would be perfect to mention here.
 
  • What are your strengths? Your reply here should list your strengths and you can back them with examples. For instance, you can say, ‘I was leading a presentation in college which went really well and I received a lot of appreciation too.’ Quoting this example would talk about your leadership qualities. Likewise mentioning that you submitted all your projects and assignments way before the deadline would speak for your punctuality.
 
  • Are you planning for your future studies? If you actually are planning, then it is important to mention, supported by a reason. With this question the interviewer wants to know if you are looking for a long term association with the company or just wanting to use their training resources and leave.
 
  • What do you know about our company? Do not just wake up in the morning, dress up and go for the interview. It is important to know the company details in and out, so study their website thoroughly and research well about the organisation. Understanding the company’s vision behind its products and services is really important. This shows your interest to join the organization which further enables the employer to invest his faith in you while evaluating your candidature.
The answers to the aforesaid questions can only be understood and rehearsed through an effective interview coaching. Good Communication skills: the motive of job interview training is not limited to knowledge building. It also helps the candidates to convey that knowledge through proper channels. Effective listening and talking precise is a major key to crack any interview. Not knowing answers to all the questions put forward by an interviewer is completely acceptable, the major trick however lies in the way you communicate the same. Your course in college will prepare you technically, but it is only an interview coaching that does the ultimate overall grooming. So, if you are straight out of college, looking for a job and you have an interview lined up, than this quick read can assist you in your job interview preparation and subsequently help you crack your first interview. Get going now!

Social media spring cleaning for graduates

social-media-spring-cleaning
Social media spring cleaning for graduates When applying for jobs, it is customary to go through a mental checklist. A stunning CV? Check. Snappy covering letter? Check. Up-to-date LinkedIn profile? Of course. Appropriate Facebook, profile? That’s the one that seems to be catching more and more people out. Last month, seventeen year old Paris Brown, a youth crime commissioner, came under intense media scrutiny for the controversial content of her official Twitter feed. According to Victoria McLean, Director of City CV, this is proof that “all it takes is a few poorly judged status updates to well and truly stall your career before it has even begun.” These days, an individual’s online identity can be as much of a deciding factor in the selection process as qualifications and experience. After all, your social media profiles could be interpreted as the ultimate CV: personal, honest, and 100% you. Which is why employers are increasingly looking at the online presence of their candidates before making a decision. If you are a student preparing for graduation and steeling yourself for the notoriously competitive job market, then it is absolutely crucial that you get your social media profiles in order before sending out a single application. Says former technology recruiter Nick Bryan: “As someone who has reviewed CVs for IT jobs: yes, we look at your Facebook. And Twitter. And blog.” While it is hardly an exact science, evidence exists to suggest that certain traits (such as intellectual curiosity, conscientiousness and agreeability) can be determined through the nature of the content that people upload to Facebook. A wide range of personal interests and photographs of travel are generally well received, and even snaps of nights out can demonstrate an extroverted, sociable personality (within reason). However, a recent study conducted by YouGov found that 42% of university students are concerned that their Facebook photographs, status updates and comments may end up causing them some embarrassment when they go on to seek work. To further complicate matters, it has been found that in some cases, deleted Facebook content can be viewed up to three years after removal. The constant changing of the settings regarding security and privacy on Facebook also means that a user may believe their profile to be only viewable by approved members, but it is in fact visible to a much wider audience. In these cases, using your own judgement is vital. We would advise, as a rule of thumb: if you wouldn’t say it in the office, don’t say it on the Internet.

4 Effective ways to prepare for a telephone interview

phone-interview
phone-interview   Before we get to the root of this article, you will need to understand the reason for the telephone interview. Most people think that the phone interview is what is going to get them the job. This is a common misunderstanding. When a company is considering taking on a new person, they will have many candidates who have applied for the job, so they conduct a phone interview first to weed out any candidates that are obviously not fit for the job. This is actually a good thing, as the odds are greater that you can get the job — if you make it through this interview.<!–more–> Continue reading “4 Effective ways to prepare for a telephone interview”

How to be top legal secretary?

Justice
How to be top legal secretary? If you are considering a career as a legal secretary then you’ll be pleased to hear that there will always be plenty of work available! Legal secretaries have made themselves completely indispensable and lawyers know they couldn’t do half as good a job without them onboard. It’s the perfect solution for people that have got into secretarial work but would like to move up the ladder and use more intelligence in their day to day work. There are plenty of ways in, but the most popular one is to complete a relevant certificate in legal secretary work, which can take a couple of years.

A day in the life of a legal secretary

Legal secretaries do a lot more than just type and file all day. They pretty much run the law firm, making sure that all organisational and administrative tasks are up to date. They will plan, schedule and minute meetings and appointments, handle email and website enquiries, deal with incoming and outgoing post, and make travel and hotel arrangements where needed. You will be working for senior executives and lawyers and you will be expected to take jobs off their desk so that they can concentrate on the higher-level work.

Computer skills

Your computer skills will need to be first class, as on any given day you will be expected to write reports, proofread and edit documents, draw up spreadsheets, maintain databases and manage online diaries. If you think your computer skills might need brushing up then it’s well worth going on a few courses to get yourself up to speed.

Legal knowledge

You will pick up a lot of legal knowledge along the way, but you will need to know the basics. You will need to attend court, prepare lengthy documents and you’ll need to be familiar with all the legal jargon. A lot of people start off as normal secretaries in law firms before they ascend to legal secretary status because they understand that they will pick up a lot of the knowledge along the way.

Physical demands

Because you will spend a long time at your desk every day you will need to know that you can handle being indoors for long periods of time. Your body may suffer from the amount of typing you have to do and RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury) is a common complaint. You may get eye strain from using a computer so much and you’ll need to go for regular eye tests. Keyboard work is even linked to carpal tunnel syndrome so it’s important you mitigate the damage by maintaining a good posture and taking loads of breaks. Obviously, you will have to be very good at grammar punctuation, and spelling, but you will also need to be a people person as you will be coming into contact with people from all walks of life on a regular basis. If you still think this is the job for you then we wish you the best of luck in your career!

Tips for training new employees

balance For an employer, there is always some amount of risk when hiring new employees.  You want to find people who are qualified, available, and responsible.  You want to find people who are personable and who can work well with others.  The application, interview, and hiring process is designed by each company to ensure that, to the best of the company’s knowledge, each new hire has the necessary qualities and traits that will allow them to succeed and to be valuable to the company. So what is the risk?  The risk lies in the simple fact that no application process or interviewer can truly predict the effectiveness a new hire will offer once they begin working.  Training them for the task assigned is an obvious way to set them up for success, but everyone knows that the ability to get the job done is not the only quality a company needs from an employee.  An employee needs to understand the values that drive the company’s success, or the mindset that makes the company what it is today.

How to get a great internship?

How to get a great internship? Given the current state of the job market, many college students are growing more and more concerned about their job prospective when they graduate. A great way to not only explore careers, but to get your foot in the door with your dream company is through internships. They are an incredible learning experience and often help you land that full-time offer by the time fall rolls around.

Where do I start?

The problem with internship-seeking is many students don’t know where to start. Career centers are a good place to start and are found on most (almost all) college campuses. Stop by your career development center and have a counselor guide you through the different options that are available for students at your school. There are probably many programs that you can apply to that you’ve never heard of and the counselors are there for a reason! Maybe you’ll come across an opportunity that you’ve never heard of!

Business skills courses

business-skills-courses Every once in awhile you may dream up an amazing business idea that could potentially make you a wealthy individual. When this situation arises, like most people you might feel confused about how exactly to get this idea off the ground and make a roaring success of it. The unfortunate reality in our world is that not every single person can be a Mark Zuckerberg, who took a small idea and turned it into one of the most influential social systems on the planet, becoming a billionaire. The rest of us have to work hard at making a success of business ventures, which is why studies or relevant courses will help you along the way to realizing your dreams. As an aspiring business man or woman business skills courses could prove invaluable to your planned endeavors. If you do decide to enhance your business skills by taking a course, try to find one that offers most- if not all – of the components listed below. Sales skills: If you have a product or service you have to be able to sell it. You have to be able to communicate the unique selling points of your product to customers in a way that explains its value to them effectively. Sales, and lots of them, will be crucial to bringing in revenue to enable the start of your own empire. Management skills: No man is an island. As your business grows it is to be assumed that more employees will join you and managing these employees is another crucial aspect that will contribute greatly to your success or failure. Effective managers know how to listen to others, manage themselves and offer practical approaches to problems. Customer service: Whether you like it or not, keeping your customers happy will ensure they come back for more. If you are lucky they might even spread word to their friends and associates about the high level of service on offer from yourself and your staff. Time management: Time is money. An effective manager will always make the most of his working hours and encourage staff to do the same. The importance of time management cannot be over emphasized in order to gain the greatest value from employees and the available hours in the day. Business etiquette: How you interact with partners and suppliers will go a long way towards ensuring the success of your business. The way in which you interact with individuals in your business dealings will contribute greatly in securing your image as a business person that is professional and a pleasure to work with. Business communication: It is a given that at some point, and probably quite often, you will have to enter into negotiations. Understanding the intricacies of business communications will allow you to produce the desired results. Team building: Keeping your workforce motivated and happy will mean that your employees will work together as a team towards common goals set out by you. Team building exercises can prove invaluable in promoting unity and cohesion in the work environment. Project management skills: Managing projects from start to finish is a non-negotiable aspect of running a business. Without somebody running projects your business will stall and struggle to achieve its required objectives. If you have been considering attending any business management courses you should do your research beforehand to ensure that you are gaining the skills you require to be successful.
