Here is an ideal résumé for a mid-level employee

Having a ton of experience under your belt doesn’t necessarily mean you have an “impressive” résumé.

“You can have all the experience in the world — but if your résumé doesn’t stand out, if you don’t present that information in a well-organized manner, or if it doesn’t tell your story, nobody will take the time to look at your résumé closely enough to see all that experience,” says Amanda Augustine, a career advice expert for TopRésumé.

To get a clearer picture of what makes a résumé stand out, we asked Augustine to create a sample of an excellent one for a mid-level professional.

While your résumé may look different depending on the industry you’re in, the one below should serve as a useful guide for job seekers with about 10 years of experience:

11 signs you nailed the interview Article originally posted on Business Insider

Most people walk out of a job interview feeling one of two ways: like they definitely nailed it, or like they completely bombed.

If you ever find yourself in the latter group, you’ll probably spend the hours and days following the interview over-thinking every response you gave and every gesture you made, wondering how the hiring manager felt about them.

But things don’t have to be a complete mystery in the time between when you walk out of the interview and when you hear whether or not you got the job.

According to career experts, there are some telltale signs to look for in the interview (and in the days following) that can help you figure out whether a job offer could be coming your way.

Here are 11 signs to look out for that don’t necessarily guarantee a job offer is in the cards, but are pretty promising:

1. Your interviewer was very smiley

Okay, you may have given a few lame answers, or froze when the interviewer tossed a brainteaser your way, but if the hiring manager was smiling and nodding a lot, this could be a really good sign.

Sure, they could have just been nodding and smiling because they are friendly, but if you notice a friendly and warm demeanor, things might be going your way.

Nodding, for instance, indicates the interviewer is listening to you intently — and is genuinely interested in what you have to say — which are good indications you’re on the right track.

2. They asked a lot of personal questions about your family, personal goals, and hobbies

No, they weren’t grilling you because they thought you were the worst. Stop being so paranoid!

“Showing an interest in your personal life means they’re seriously considering you, as it demonstrates an interest beyond just the professional résumé,” says Michael Kerr, an international business speaker and author of “The HumorAdvantage.”

But remember that you don’t always have to answer personal questions. Some are illegal.

3. The interview ran over the designated time

When you’re in the hot seat and things aren’t going as swimmingly as you’d like, it may feel like the interview is going on forever. But if you look at the clock and realize that’s because it did go over the 30-minute block, this could be a very good thing.

It may mean the employer wants to continue getting to know you a little better, says Amber Cloke, an academic adviser at Ithaca College. “You’ve likely already passed the initial criteria they were seeking, and the fact that they continue investing more time and energy toward you can be promising.”

4. The interviewer tried to sell you on the company

At some point in the interview, the hiring manager stopped asking questions and started talking your ear off. You may have been thinking, Oh no. They’re done with me … they have nothing else to ask!

But stop freaking out and think about what they were saying

Were they making a conscious effort to talk up the company? That’s a great sign they’re impressed with you and trying to sway you towards the position.

“You may be able to tell that your interview has gone well by how much the recruiter ‘sells’ the role and/or the organization,” says Dale Austin, director of the Career Development Center at Hope College. “If the recruiter spends a lot of time doing the talking, that may be one indicator that the organization is very interested in your candidacy.”

5. The interviewer talked a lot about perks, benefits, policies, and pay

This may have been part of their “sales tactic,” and it’s another positive sign.

If and when an interviewer starts discussing company policies and benefits — and even gets into a serious discussion about pay — there’s a good chance they’re planning to make an offer. They most likely wouldn’t waste their time voluntarily sharing all this information if they weren’t interested in you.

6. Your interviewer showed you around the office before you left

No matter how badly you thought you bombed, an office tour can give you some hope.

If the hiring manager takes the extra time to show you around the office or introduces you to employees before you head out, that could mean they’re thinking about offering you the role.

“Most interviewers will give you an idea of what the schedule will look like ahead of time,” says Cloke. “If, at the end of the interview, the employer unexpectedly offers to introduce you to the rest of the team, it could bode well for you.”

7. They said ‘you will’ rather than ‘you would’

If you spent the whole interview overthinking the weak handshake you gave at the very beginning of the interview, or the awkward moment you sat in the wrong chair in the hiring manager’s office, you may not have noticed some very subtle signs that they were actually really impressed with you.

For instance, if the interviewer shifted from a hypothetical tone to a presumptive one, this is a very good sign.

Lynn Taylor, a national workplace expert, leadership coach, and author of “Tame Your Terrible Office Tyrant: How to Manage Childish Boss Behavior and Thrive in Your Job,” says this may mean they’re already be envisioning you at the company.

8. The interviewer asked for a list of references

No, this doesn’t mean they didn’t believe something you said and want to confirm their suspicions.

Well, it could mean that … but it probably doesn’t.

When the interviewer asks for references, it typically means they’re seriously considering you for the role.

Checking references is often the last step before an employer offers a candidate the job. So, you should stop feeling sorry for yourself and start feeling excited.

9. The follow-up process was pointedly discussed

On your way out, you’re feeling pretty badly about how things went. But then the hiring manager enthusiastically brings up the next step in the hiring process without you even asking.

This is a clear indicator you’re still in the running for the open role. Unless, of course, it’s just a generic: “We’’ll be in touch soon.”

“If an interviewer is interested in a candidate, they may even ask when you’d like to or need to have their decision by,” said Kevin Hewerdine, director of Career Service sand Employer Relations at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. “They won’t let you leave without knowing what your timeline looks like.”

10. You’re asked to come in for an additional round of interviews

You may be just one of a handful of finalists, but if you’ve been asked to return for a second round of interviews, that’s an encouraging sign that you’re a serious contender, says Taylor. “They want to clinch the decision by building consensus among managers.”

11. There was a lingering goodbye

If they disliked you as much as you’re worried they did, the hiring manager would probably try to get rid of you as quickly as possible. But if they seem to go on and on, continue asking questions or selling you on the company as you’re saying your goodbyes, you probably made a great impression.

Okay, maybe the hiring manager is just super talkative — but if they linger as they walk with you toward the main lobby or escort you out the door, this could be a very good sign.

Matthew Randall, executive director of the Center for Professional Excellence at York College of Pennsylvania, says: “Typically, interviewers unconsciously do this because they feel comfortable with you being a strong candidate and know that, since this relationship may continue in the future, they want to spend a few more moments to strengthen their professional rapport.”

May 2016

Industry News and Updates:

Boom or Bust? Neither! The first question I seem to get when I speak to both hiring managers and candidates is: “How is the market doing?” My answer is: It’s not 2014 where every company in Houston seemed to be hiring, but it is also not the 80’s bust either (I personally have only heard stories about this time). Houston has come such a long way and has diversified from being just an oil town since then. We are so much more! Don’t get me wrong there are industries in Houston that are truly hurting, but there are also industries that are doing just fine. The price of oil does impact our economy directly and indirectly, but I am so excited to report that it seems to be ticking up every week. Today the price is around $45 a barrel. Most economist will tell you that we need to get to $60 dollars a barrel and a lot of them have predicted we will hit that number by the end of the year.

It is harder to find a job today and you have to use multiple resources. You cannot simply go online, upload your resume to CareerBuilder and wait for the phone to ring. First, you have to make sure that you have a good resume (there are some links listed below with resume writing tips) and then you have to use great recruiters, your network, LinkedIn, networking functions, ads, niche job boards and yes CareerBuilder. One source is not enough in the present job market. The great news is that our unemployment rate is still below 5%; which technically speaking, means that we are at full employment. As you know, I always like to see the bright side of things!

See you again in July 2016

December 2015 Newsletter for Accounting Professionals from Diane Delgado LeMaire @ CFS

December 2015


Industry News and Updates:

Let me just jump right in and address the question that is going through everyone’s mind: What is going on in the Houston job market? I get this one daily and I must admit it is not an easy question to answer. I would like to share some data that I learned about at a recent forum (Bauer College of Business – Institute for Regional Forecasting) I attended and then share my thoughts at the end. The title of the Forum was: Houston’s Job Growth Stumbles As Oil Markets Swoon: Where Now? That doesn’t really set the tone for a positive outlook, does it? Here are some of the highlights:

  1. It’s all about oil! Price is down by 50%. Eventually this trickles down and impacts all sectors; even retail! BUT construction, education, healthcare, and home building are still doing well.
  2. In 2015, we virtually had 0% employment growth in Houston.
  3. This is NOT 1982! But we do have a supply / demand issue and that is what is pushing the price of oil down.
  4. The greatest oil boom is over for now.
  5. The professional and business services sector have not been impacted yet.
  6. One operating rig actually creates 227 jobs (direct and indirect)!!!!!!!
  7. Houston is undergoing a mild recession. Best case scenario we come out in mid-2016, but it looks like 2017 is more likely. Worst case scenario this drags out until 2018.

That is what I learned and here is MY opinion… I think there are many sectors in Houston that will be hiring. Our office is seeing demand in a lot of different industries and at a variety of levels. Is this the summer of 2014? No, and it will not be for a while. The Houston economy goes through business cycles just like everyone else. While most of the US was still in the midst of the Great Recession, Houston was booming. Well, it’s not a BUST for Houston for now, but we will be hurting a little bit in the near future. Companies are going to try and get by with less overhead. They are going to consolidate positions and they are going to have to lay off, unfortunately.  The good news for you is that you are an accountant! There is always a need for accountants!!!!! Also,  Houston is still at a 4.8% unemployment rate (September 4.4, October 4.6). We are still at full employment and there are plenty of people nearing retirement age. The jobs are still out there, however, they are not as easy to find and you may have to be a little bit more flexible with what you are looking for. So, my verdict? I am cautiously optimistic about 2016, but I am really looking forward to 2017!!!!!!

See you again in February 2016!

A NEW SURVEY FROM CAREERBUILDER FINDS THAT NEARLY HALF (49 PERCENT) OF EMPLOYERS KNOW WITHIN THE FIRST FIVE MINUTES OF AN INTERVIEW WHETHER A CANDIDATE IS A GOOD OR BAD FIT FOR THE POSITION.

In a job interview, there are plenty of ways to prove to a hiring manager that you’re a great fit for the role — highlighting your career wins and achievements, sharing your insights about the industry, aligning yourself with the company’s values and so on. And there are also plenty of ways to prove that this isn’t the job for you.

A new survey from CareerBuilder finds that nearly half (49 percent) of employers know within the first five minutes of an interview whether a candidate is a good or bad fit for the position, and 87 percent know within the first 15 minutes.

In that amount of time, most job seekers and hiring managers have barely gotten through introductions and the prompt, “Tell me about yourself.” So what factors are influencing their decision? In a national survey, more than 2,000 hiring managers and human resources professionals across industries and company sizes shared what mistakes job seekers make in the interview process and the errors that turn them off to a candidate, as well as the most memorable mistakes they’ve seen.

Consider this your list of what not to do in the interview.

Mistakes everybody makes

If you didn’t get called back after the interview, you may know why you weren’t their top pick. However, most of us are left dazed and confused after the experience, not really sure what happened in there.

Unfortunately, hiring managers are more deft during the process and are judging your every move. What are they seeing? According to employers, the top most detrimental blunders candidates make in interviews are often the most common:

Appearing disinterested – 55 percent
Dressing inappropriately – 53 percent
Appearing arrogant – 53 percent
Talking negatively about current or previous employers – 50 percent
Answering a cell phone or texting during the interview – 49 percent
Appearing uninformed about the company or role – 39 percent
Not providing specific examples – 33 percent
Not asking good questions – 32 percent
Providing too much personal information – 20 percent
Asking the hiring manager personal questions – 17 percent

Your body language is also being evaluated by hiring managers. Here are the top mistakes employers reported:

Failure to make eye contact – 70 percent
Failure to smile – 44 percent
Bad posture – 35 percent
Fidgeting too much in one’s seat – 35 percent
Playing with something on the table – 29 percent
Handshake that is too weak – 27 percent
Crossing one’s arms over one’s chest – 24 percent
Playing with one’s hair or touching one’s face – 24 percent
Using too many hand gestures – 10 percent
Handshake that is too strong – 5 percent

Mistakes nobody should make

Remember that every interview is a chance to improve and make a great impression. If you’ve made some of the more common mistakes, now’s the time to turn things around and act more professionally in front of potential employers.

However, if you’ve made one of following more memorable mistakes in an interview, here’s a stronger piece of advice: Never do that again.

When asked to share the most outrageous mistakes candidates made during a job interview, employers gave the following real-life examples:

Applicant warned the interviewer that she “took too much valium” and didn’t think her interview was indicative of her personality
Applicant acted out a Star Trek role
Applicant answered a phone call for an interview with a competitor
Applicant arrived in a jogging suit because he was going running after the interview
Applicant asked for a hug
Applicant attempted to secretly record the interview
Applicant brought personal photo albums
Applicant called himself his own personal hero
Applicant checked Facebook during the interview
Applicant crashed her car into the building
Applicant popped out his teeth when discussing dental benefits
Applicant kept her iPod headphones on during the interview
Applicant set fire to the interviewer’s newspaper while reading it when the interviewer said “Impress me”
Applicant said that he questioned his daughter’s paternity
Applicant wanted to know the name and phone number of the receptionist because he really liked her

In the end, know that hiring managers are looking for a new team member and want to find somebody that’s a good fit, and aren’t rooting for you to fail. “Employers want to see confidence and genuine interest in the position. The interview is not only an opportunity to showcase your skills, but also to demonstrate that you’re the type of person people will want to work with,” said Rosemary Haefner, vice president of human resources at CareerBuilder. “Going over common interview questions, researching the company, and practicing with a friend or family member can help you feel more prepared, give you a boost in confidence, and help calm your nerves.”
