Want To Be A Trucker

Check Your Driving And Criminal Records

Trucking is one industry where a criminal record or a bad traffic record is really a hindrance to employment. In general a felony is the more serious, but even misdemeanor criminal charges, even if they were deferred, can potentially knock you out of any employment possibilities.

Alcohol or drug related charges, even if they are not related to driving, are also a big factor for most companies. This is because of the liability factor that they need to consider when hiring a driver. They may not prevent you from getting a CDL but you just won’t be considered by trucking companies when it comes to getting a job.

A person that has a history of criminal charges may or may not be able to get specific types of endorsements that may be required for some trucking jobs. For example, most types of felony offenses … Read the rest

Build a Happy Workforce

Keep an eye on what other companies are doing and try to match their perks. One of the companies I used to work for was a soft drinks manufacturer so every day I got to drink as much soda as I wanted. I even had the chance to take home boxes of the stuff when we over produced.

Many companies today offer everything you need under one roof such as a gym, sauna and dry cleaning. It is enough to help employees get a load off their minds. Some other great perks include casual dress, having a billiards table and even offering flex fridays.

Make Sure They Love Your Company

Expressing Gratitude After Interview

Make the Extra Effort

Not saying anything at all out of nervousness can happen, but it is not a good way to leave. And not giving a firm handshake while looking the interviewer in the eye is considered a sign of disrespect and can quickly put an end to all of your hard work leading up to this moment. As soon as possible after the interview has ended, make sure to start writing a follow-up thank you letter.

While email is a convenient way to communicate these days, it is still not considered the most professional way of doing so with potential employers. A good old-fashioned hand-written note will show the interviewer that you care enough about the job to take the time to actually write them a note about it.

Being prompt in your delivery is also important; the recommended timeline for sending the letter is two to three … Read the rest

Hire People Online

Many would assume that the internet offers all the solutions to this problem and in many ways it can help a great deal. Not only are businesses able to quickly attract a wide number of candidates for their positions, but they are also able to quickly and effortlessly weed out candidates they don’t like based on simple factors like a resume inadequacy or criminal record.

In other ways though, the internet can make the hiring process much more complicated than it needs to be. For example, because it’s impossible to know if someone is who they claim to be, or if they would actually be a good fit for the job, many companies and businesses waste time working with candidates they don’t actually want to hire in the long term.

This is why it’s important to go into online hiring with a strategy. Your business needs a way to use

Get Job Promotion

Choose your timing

Make sure it is the right time to start this conversation. Don’t start it when your boss is frantically busy or stressed out!

Be Marketable

Managers are busy people but they value ideas and creativity and someone who will think ‘outside of the box’. They appreciate an individual who is self-motivated and willing to volunteer for work opportunities that may arise but are outside of their normal job description. It may be useful to assist in the workload of someone in a senior role to yourself in order to demonstrate that you are capable of a similar position, if available.

Be Liked and Admired

How quickly does someone scan over your resume? Interviewers are looking at your skills and experience, which will alert them to the needs that they are hoping you will fulfill. That takes maybe 20 seconds, tops.

So, what do you need to do? Make it pop! Bold certain words throughout your resume so they pop off the page at someone. You’ve got their attention now, right? An example would be: “have 10 years experience as a Project Manager”. OK, that sentence is just sitting there. But if you use “have 10 years experience and success a Senior Project Manager overseeing new business development oppotunities… “. Much better, right?
