In the Manawatu, business networks and connections are strong. If you are job seeking, being memorable will open doors for you. Word of mouth is a powerful tool in your job search.
Reflecting on the many job seekers I have spoken to over the years, seven specific attributes stand out as memorable to me. These attributes may not secure you the first job you apply for, but it will set you up as a highly desirable candidate.
Recently I worked with two job seekers for a position. I briefed each of them on the history of the company they had applied to and suggested they conduct their own research prior to their interview.
One did, one didn’t. Can you guess which one was offered the job?
Your response to these two questions can set you apart from the rest…
2020 is a tough year and it’s completely reasonable to feel or have felt stressed at some point. In challenging times, it can be easy to overlook your mental health and well-being. When stresses become too much, it can lead to burnout.

In an interview you are faced with a wide range of questions, all structured to generate different responses. Most questions will be open-ended – requiring more detail than a simple yes or no.
Competency based questions are designed so the interviewer can better understand your approach to a task, how you react, and act in certain work situations, as well as what learnings you have taken from your past experiences.
The STAR approach is a way to answer such questions. STAR stands for:
Situation – describe the setting for the interviewer.
Task – explain what you had to do, your roles and responsibilities in the situation.
Action – what did you do to address the situation?
Result – what was the outcome and what did you learn?
