Finding Your First Job After Studying Begins Long Before Graduation

Finding Your First Job After Studying Begins Long Before Graduation Finding Your First Job After Studying Begins Long Before GraduationPosted November 8, 2017, by Amanda SparksFor many students, the beginning of the final university year is the beginning of the reality of a job search and anticipation of the world of work. Many have been very successful success being defined as high marks, a healthy GPA, and the right coursework for the career they envision. All of these meakoranverss of success may certainly qualify you for a great entry position and may even get you into that einstellungsgesprch, but being a great candidate on paper is only a part of the entire employment equation. Therbeie are many others with the same paper that you have, and employers have a large pool to pick from. They are looking for more than a skill set that may have been accumulated through coursework, for what you know. They are looking for what they believe you will be able to do for their organisation. Questions Employers are Asking Themselves About You During the interview process, employers are evaluating you in several areas Do you have the personality that will be a cultural fit for the organisation? Traditional, conservative enterprises will want a display of corporate professionalism a fresh new tech startup will want a personality that is more casual and perhaps risk-taking. Are you excited about the company? What do you know about them? Are you confident and looking for challenges? Are you self-motivated and willing to take initiative? The issue is this most of these skills are elend developed in the classroom but, rather, through other activities sometimes part-time jobs, internships, volunteer work, membership in clubs/organisations, etc. On the other hand, if you are looking for experiences that will boost these softer skills, why not approach each class like it is a career position? Youll be surprised by the experiences you can actually set up if you do this. Each Class Can Be More Than Its studienplan If you begin to practice the following behaviors in each class from your first year forward, employers will be able to answer yes to those quiet questions they are asking themselves about you. 1. Approach Your Studies As You Would Your Job The basics of employee behaviour include getting to class on time, being positive about the coursework and assignments, getting those assignments completed on time, getting to know and interacting with your professors and fellow students, and going above and beyond just the required when you find the chance to do so. Another part of preparing yourself is to know when a challenge may be beyond you and when and where to get the assistance you need. If writing is a challenge, for example, look into some tutoring or perhaps do a short writing course to improve your skills. 2. Your Teachers Are Your Bosses If you were on the job, what kind of a relationship would you have with your boss? Here, you take the lead from your boss. Some are very formal and authoritarian others are relationship builders. Learning the difference and how to respond to various types of bosses is part of the critical preparation for career employment. 3. Listen Carefully and Ask Questions During lectures, you can practice listening skills. If you are actively listening, you will be able to ask the right questions for clarification, etc. The more you practice active listening, the better you will get at it. 4. Take Leadership Roles in Group Projects These projects are perfect opportunities to boost your skills in team dynamics and leadership problem-solving, decision-making, and critical thinking. Being a member of a team of some sort will always be a part of career employment. 5. Practice Self-Management A key soft skill that employers want is the ability to self-monitor. Learn to schedule and organize long-term projects/assignments, setting interim deadlines for completion of each part. This is a h abit that will serve you well on the job. 6. Take On Challenges The easy courses result in easy high marks. But anyone can do that. Can you take a course or two that represent a huge challenge for you? Perhaps you are not a superior math student. How about taking an additional math course that presents a big challenge? Perhaps your English skills are not great how about a literature course in which you have to also write about the literature you read? Employers like to see candidates who have taken on these kinds of challenges and survived. 7. Apply for Internship Opportunities Internships are the perfect way to get your foot in the door of your dream company. The best thing you ever can get from the tertiary provider is the opportunity to become a part of some powerful company you never know what industry leaders your faculty has connections with. Get as much experience as possible and add a couple of impressive additions to your CV to help you stand out from the pack.This p ost was produced by guest blogger, Amanda Sparks.

How the Equifax hack could hurt your credit and job search

How the Equifax hack could hurt your leistungspunkt and job searchHow the Equifax hack could hurt your credit and job searchFor the estimated 145.5 million Americans affected by the hack on credit reporting agencyEquifax, they will not only have to reckon with fraudulent activity in their credit history in the months and years to come, but also with an unfair side effect having to explain that fraudulent credit history to potentially unsympathetic employers.According to a 2012surveyby the Society for Human Resource Management, nearly half of employers are subjecting job candidates to credit checks. Forty-seven percent of employers admitted to checking job applicants credit reports as part of the hiring process.Thats because, whether you like it or not, employers often look at your credit history before choosing to hire you.The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission prohibits employers from having a financial requirement if itdoes not help the employer to accurately identifyresponsib le and reliable employees, but if an employer can prove that the credit check is relevant to the job, they can go ahead and look up your credit background.Of course, you have to consent to have this searched, but if you want that job, its not much of an option.Research shows credit reports a poor indicatorWhats especially troubling about how many employers use credit reports is that research shows the information contained therein has almost no predictive power as to what kind of employee someone will be. The information in the report may be flat-out incorrect or have activity out of your control, such as hack-related debt. One in four credit reports has an error, according to the Federal Trade Commission.Use of these reports may also say more about an employers biases than they say about your qualifications. A 2017 studyfound that employers go beyond the numbers - worryingly, these reports can become jump-off points for hiring managers to engage in moral storytelling.My research s uggests that the moral distinctions employers draw vary according to their own life experiences - carrying student loans, say, makes one more empathetic to candidates struggling to pay off their education debt - as well as according to their class, gender, and perhaps even race, she writes about her conclusions for The Atlantic.As accurate as tea leavesAlthough these managers conclusions can be as accurate as fortune telling at predicting a candidates qualifications, they can be used to conclusively shut out good candidates from being hired.Unless credit reports are banned for use in the hiring process or employers wise up to their lack of predictive power, this will remain an unfair bind for job seekers damned if they disclose, damned if they opt of good jobs asking for this sensitive, too-often wrong and misleading information.

An Environmentally Friendly Muscle Car

An Environmentally Friendly Muscle Car An Environmentally Friendly Muscle Car An Environmentally Friendly Muscle CarEnvironmentalists, start your engines?When you think about the Camaro, the term muscle car comes to mind. But the term green? Maybe not. But thats what a competition like EcoCAR3, partly sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, is about changing the publics thinking with regard to what a car like the Camaro can be. Its fast, yes. But it could also be an environmentally friendly with new design specs.A team at the University of Alabama has leapt forward in the process. This four-year competition has seen them finish eighth nationally in their first year and then vaulting to fourth overall after the second year of the competition. Now theyre ramping up to try and do even better in Year 3, now at roughly the halfway point in the competition.Josh Stoddard, project manager and engineering manager for the team, has been involved in the competition for the school since the beginning. The first year was mostly design work and choosing an architecture and designating how torque will be produced in the vehicle, he says. You do a bunch of analysis on how crazy you want to get in design and what can you feasibly do and what you can afford to do. It also involves doing customer research to figure out how to market this. With the Camaro, we want to retain the Camaro sports car way, but also determine where it can be a hybrid. The first year wraps up with a completed design and chosen architecture.Students transform a classic American car into an environmentally friendly vehicle. Image The University of AlabamaTeam member Trevor Ford said going forward with Year 2 involved a large amount of redesigning. The fuel tank was an example, offers Ford, a senior mechanical engineering major. Its now made out of aluminum. Also, working on a coolant system, replacing with aluminum hard lines. The rubber version was bulky. And redesigning mounts for certain motors. We h ave the P-1 and P-3 motors. They are electric motors and we redesigned mounts for those because we have the liberty of where we can put it. Theres no set space on where it has to be.For Year 3s competition, Ford says their Camaro is slated to be drivable and the competition itself will have them at General Motors headquarters right outside of Detroit for testing in the first week. The second week will take distributions-mix in Washington, DC, where the team will give presentations for sponsors and organizers of the competition covering everything theyve worked on. Both weeks are after the conclusion of their spring semester.Ford explains the structure of the team, which has electrical team leads, mechanical team leads, and an engineering manager. They are working extremely hard in the lab, sometimes theyre in there fifty to sixty hours a week, he says. Theres a real commitment and pride to come up with a great result.Members of the UA EcoCAR team with their Chevrolet Camaro. Image T he University of AlabamaFord, who did a co-op with BMW for four semesters at BMWs manufacturing plant in South Carolina, with the first three focused on hybrid technology, says this experience taught him almost as much as that time with the German car leader. Its a top opportunity to expand your engineering knowledge but put it into action, he says. To get a chance to adjust the Camaro, thats a big thrill. Redesigning something like this from the ground up, its unique.But can the Camaro come out of this with a chance to be known for being a green car beyond the competition? I definitely think its possible, Ford says. Many people have never experienced driving a hybrid. Because of its battery torque, there is strength in the area of acceleration and that makes it fun. Muscle cars and environmentally friendly design can go flosse in hand.Eric Butterman is an independent writer. For Further Discussion To get a chance to adjust the Camaro, thats a big thrill. Redesigning something like this from the ground up, its unique.Trevor Ford, University of Alabama

Where the Robot Meets the Road

Where the Robot Meets the Road Where the Robot Meets the Road One of the great inventions we take for granted is right beneath our feetand often beneath our wheels. Roads have gone from simple, narrow paths to intricate infrastructure systems connecting states, countries, and even continents.Still, though they may look strong, they age, and they crack. Filling in those cracks can be a long, expensive challenge. The Georgia Tech Research Institute has been working on a system that travels a different path, and might give the worlds roads a healthier future.Named Roadbot, this system utilizes features such as stereo camera technology and light-emitting diodes to identify cracks and fill them with the aid of a multi-nozzle system.Originally, the thought was doing it with a dot matrix approach, and even the GDOT Georgia Department of Transportation ended up getting involved, says Jonathan Holmes, senior researcher at the Georgia Tech Research Institute. We have been able to test Roadbot over a few miles but we want to find a partner to expand it to many miles.The Roadbot extends the life of roads by slowing down the aging process, says Holmes, adding that it may extend the lifespan of the average road from six to eight years to possibly nine to eleven years.Pictured left to right Project director Jonathan Holmes, lead engineer Wayne Daley and David Jared of GDOT. Image Tasnim Shamma / WABE / Georgia TechGetting the PictureIt starts with a camera detecting the renommees, like a flashlight, he says. As you change the angle of a flashlight, you can highlight some features as shadow is cast, he says. As a camera sees the shadows, we distinguish between good pavement and cracks with machine vision-processing algorithms. You then generate a pixilized map where the camera takes a picture to find the cracks. The next piece is transferring the information, such as coordinating transformation going from the image frame of the camera to where the physical system is.The physic al system is an array of nozzles that are charged with very high, pressure-heated asphalt, he says.They are waiting to turn on when they drive over the crack, he says. So when this system is pulled down the road, the movement of the truck allows the system to move forward following the road. Once this coordinate system transformation is made from the camera to the crack-sealing system, with the hardware doing its work, then they are able to fire at the right time. From this, you get this asphalt thats been shot at high pressure, high velocity into the cracks and thats ultimately how the crack is filled.Fast to the FillingThe time between getting the picture of the crack and the hardware filling the crack is actually only about a tenth of a second, Holmes says. Theres also a small accumulator for each nozzle. If youre driving down the road and theres one crack and all nozzles fire at the same time then you have a pressure drop in the system and the nozzle farthest away from the pump wont fire well. Instead, you have individual accumulators for each nozzle. You have a very small volume that goes with each nozzle and is spring loaded and charged on its own.Holmes believes the Roadbot has the ability to make quite a difference and it identifies approximately 90% of cracks at present.A road wears down where predominant contributors are changes between earth and asphalt, he says. It can heat up in a day and cool down in a night. You have stress fractures. And freezing expands the cracks also. Many things are working against the road but hopefully we can put this to work to help it.Eric Butterman is an independent writer.Many things are working against the road but hopefully we can put this to work to help it.Jonathan Holmes, Georgia Tech Research Institute

Plan a Project with Basic Tools of Project Management

Plan a Project with Basic Tools of Project ManagementPlan a Project with Basic Tools of Project ManagementOur world of work is increasingly a world of projects. Projects are how we develop new products, execute strategic initiatives, and do everything that is new in an organization. By definition, projectsare temporary and uniqueinitiatives, in contrast with regular operations activities. While many firms rely upon trained, certified project managers to lead their initiatives, project skills are increasingly required for all professionals. This articleoffers an introduction to planning a project for any professional interested in adopting the practices that work so well for professional project managers. Take the Time to Truly Define and Plan Your Project Project managers understand that a hefty portion of the total project duration is spent in planning. Many of us have a tendency to rush to start the work, which in the world of projects is similar to skipping reading the instruc tions on that new piece of furniture you purchased from one of those assemble it yourself retailers. Chances are, the rush to do the work without reading the instructions will create some serious problems at some point in your endeavor. Instead of rushing straight into the work, it is important to nail down a few critical issues What exactly are you creating? Be as specific as possible.When must it be completed by?What resources (people, equipment, and budget) do you have access to, to complete the project? The above three items are the fundamental components of a scope statement. Every project manager works to clarify the scope in advance of beginning the work. Scoping the Company Holiday Party Initiative A sample scope statement for the company holiday cocktailparty might read as follows Our goal is to plan and deliver a company holiday party for 100 employees and their significant others before the end of December, at a cost not to exceed $10,000. Our planning and coordinatio n will consist of the 4 member committee with oversight by the CEO. The party will include an open bar, plated meal, dessert and entertainment. Just taking the time to craft that simple but important statement offers powerful guidance for the kollektiv involved in the project. Everyone understands the nature of the project, the time-frame, the resources, and the budget. Break the Scope Down Into Discrete Blocksof Work Project Managers create something called a work breakdown structure to describe in clear, actionable terms, all of the work of the project that must be completed by someone in a particular time frame. In your situation, the work breakdown might include Identify location.Confirm availability of room and lock it in with a deposit.Select food options.Confirm the bar and what the bar includes.Identify the dessert options.Create and distribute invitations with food choices.Finalize food choices based on returned invitations.Decide on the schriftart of entertainment.Revi ew options for entertainment and select.Confirm the dining room set-up.Purchase table gifts for guests.Coordinate and deliver the event. Project managers would develop this breakdown of the work of the project without consideration for resources or timing, but more in brainstorming format. Once all of the work necessary to achieve the project scope has been identified, it is time to put it in order, assign responsibilities and ask for time and cost estimates from your team members. Creating the Project Plan from the Work Breakdown After completing the simple work breakdown identified on the previous page, you must now Confirm that all of the major items to achieve the project scope have been identified.Confirm who will handle what work items and create a responsibility matrix outlining the major work tasks of the responsibleparty.Request that each team memberreviewtheir tasks, identify time and cost estimates, note deadlines, summarize resource needs and ensure that they have th oroughly evaluated the work they must are accountable for. Once the above steps have been completed, the project team should work together to sequence the events in the proper order, noting any conflicts for resources or potential scheduling challenges. Aproject managerwould complete this step bydeveloping a network diagram, calculating thecritical path and then scheduling resources, often with the help of computer software. For your smaller project using informal methods, a simple post-it note type approach of laying out the items in the sequencemay be all that is necessary. This process will allow you to develop the complete picture of the steps involved and deadlines for planning and delivering a great holiday party Let the Work Begin Now that you have taken the time to properly scope the project, identify the major tasks, sequence the tasks and evaluated time and resource requirements, you are prepared to put the team to work on their assigned responsibilities. Your role as the informal project manager is to monitor the work, support the team members and help identify and resolve challenges as they occur. A good project manager meets regularly with team members to assess progress and identify and navigate emerging risks. The Bottom Line The same approaches outlined above can be applied to any project situation in your department or business unit. Develop a clear scope, identify the work, assign resources, develop estimates and a schedule, and then monitor and control the work. Your practices will be recognized and appreciated by the professional project managers in your workplace, and your results will be much better than simply jumping into the work without thinking it through.
