If you think that all you need to get a job or a promotion is to learn computer skills – you’re wrong. Sign up for an Employability Skills class and learn why this is true.

interviews3Are you attending school to improve your computer skills in order to get a better job? If you answered yes, you’ve only taken the first step to improving your workplace skills and your chances of obtaining a better job. But, if you think that all you need is to learn computer skills to get a better job or to get a promotion at work- you’re wrong.

Knowing how to type, to use the Internet and e-mail and to understand how to use the Microsoft Office applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access and Publisher will look good on your resume, and might help you get a job. But,  knowing EMPLOYABILITY SKILLS  will help you KEEP your job and be recognized at work. Learn the SECRETS to what it takes to KEEP your job and be RECOGNIZED.

 

Secret #1: Did you know that most employees keep their jobs because they have a good relationship with their boss? If your boss knows you, likes you, and has a good impression of you, you’re much less likely to be fired than someone who doesn’t have a good relationship with the boss.

Secret #2: Some people find employment by responding to a job ad with a resume and well-written cover letter-but most do not. 80 percent of human resource professionals report that ‘networking’ is the best way to find a job. It’s ‘who you know’, not necessarily ‘what you know’ that’s going to help you get a job.

Take advantage of the opportunity to attend an Employability Skills class taught by experienced Instructors who will share their workplace expertise, experiences and secrets. Sign up today and learn:

5 Things To Avoid During The Hiring Process

Raise your hand if you’ve ever felt like you’ve sabotaged your chances at landing that dream job.

Related: 5 Hiring Process Myths You Need To Know

Go ahead. Don’t be shy; we all get a little too eager at times.

As a job seeker, the goal is to constantly be aware of your actions and how they can potentially be interpreted by a recruiter or hiring manager.

5 Things To Avoid During The Hiring Process

Here are five things to avoid sabotaging your chances of landing that dream job:

Excessive Follow-Up/Reaching Out

There’s nothing wrong with following up with a recruiter once you’ve either had an exploratory conversation or an interview. However, if the recruiter has stated a specific time frame as to when he/she will be reaching back out with next steps, be sure to at least allow that time period to end before following up. There are a variety of steps within the recruitment life cycle and you never know what client calls the recruiter has to complete, prior to being able to provide you with clarification on whether or not your candidacy will be taken further
