this video gave me alot of confidence for my interview with this marketing firm. I never though outside the box with interviews. Today i made it into round two out of alot of others. Thank you so much.
I'm 20 and never had a job because i never needed one and therefore I didn't want to deal with people (customers and or bosses), but i need one now... I admit, i also never got one out of fear.. Fear of messing up (my mother would yell at me horribly when i would mess up, therefore i was scared of being under pressure) also fear of not being able to do things right. Time to let go of those fears.
I'm 24 with a bachelors of art but have no work experience. How can I get hired? Usually employers are easy on young people with lack of job experience but I'm nearly 30. I don't know how I can sell myself to entry level jobs. I volunteer at my church contributing to the news letter but it doesn't requite much communication skills. I just receive emails from the media director on the theme and draw a comic based on that. I did a bit of commission work from family and friends. Last October I had worked for a clothing store in a seasonal position. I could had applied to stay with the company but I became too self conscious during my last few weeks. There was a situation where my coworkers needed me to work the register but I my mind totally bailed on me. I don't know what happened but I was so nervous I couldn't count. An older employee was there to help me but I just embarrassed myself. After that day I was so ashamed I didn't feel like anyone wanted me. I know that coworkers talk to each other and I just felt like they all didn't want me around anymore so I didn't apply to stay on. Currently I'm getting ready for an interview at another clothing store but I am still nervous.
Linda these are great tips HOWEVER, your tips in this video are assuming you were called in for the interview. Most places, no matter how much you sell the qualifications you do have, don't even call you for the interview. My personal example is that I have over 17 years of retail management experience with 10 years of upper management. I am trying to get an office position and I have pointed out how in my field a lot of it DOES involve operational duties I still get the rejection emails instead of them even giving me a chance with an interview. So I need to see a video on HOW to GET the interview in the first place!
My resume is pretty good
I have 1 year of work experience in researches
I have B.S degree in Geology from the best university in my country, gpa is 3.7 out of 4.0
26 and still unemployed since last year
All what you need is connections with companies and I don't have that
Major: Information Technology
Languages: Spanish, Urdu, Some Hebrew, Arabic, Italian & French.
Experience: 6 months in Medellín, Colombia.
Sold myself, answered questions, always polite, arrive for the interview 2 hours before, sharp dress always etc etc etc.
4 months & so far no luck.
Spent 4 years at uni & I'm £37K in debt of student loans. I'm getting jobs at Telesales & supermarkets. Wth all due respect, I should have not went to university.
They don't ask the questions you have suggested. Always they have their own questions in the UK. It might be different for you guys in the states.
I am doing my utmost best to either move to Italy, South America or USA.
Any tips on applying abroad, then yeah I would be happy.
I'm 18 and I have no working experience but now I am the youngest sales advisor at H&M. And let me tell you, i failed every single face-to-face interview before this interview with H&M. They let you show who you really are and what you're capable of by some group projects instead of letting you saying a bunch of crap who knows how correct it is.
So what im trying to say is, believe in yourself. Don't hesitate. You live only once!! You can do it
I really appreciate your advice. As a bread creator, who's re-entering the 9-5 job market. These information is very valuable to me. Instead of using my resume. I choose to sell myself through using my personal brand. Thank you
im almost 17 and i started to think how do i get first job i have no clue and im kinda scarred i have some experience but guys help i just have no clue what to do where to go . help me please im from europe
I've applied for 5 jobs and had 2 interviews and another next week this is within 2 weeks. I've had no success so far, I've had work experience when I was in school but now trying to find part-time work it seems impossible because I always get the same response "I have the skills needed but not the experience." - that's why I'm applying to jobs I want to gain experience in industries and if I don't have the skills I always mentions that I'm really eager to learn the required skills and that I'm a motivated individual.
It's extremely frustrating experience.
Linda your video resonates in many ways, but how do you sell that brand when the interviewer asks, "What other things have you done in 10 years? How have you build processes and how have you implemented them? What have you contributed that has been used by your company?" In this particular interview I gave the lady ideas of what I had proposed, what I wanted to see, but all I could do was suggest. You see, in my job I follow procedures and processes which are already in place. I make sure the system works safely and efficiently. I am not an inventor. She wanted things that I had implemented. At the end of the interview she said she liked my energy, enthusiasm, and knowledge of aviation I had, but she was looking for a person who had implemented new processes and not just had passion for good ideas. How do I even turn that around? Or is all there to do is switch jobs to have a "stepping stone"?
What employers want is someone who requires little-to-no on-the-job training with lots of experience but willing to work for a very low or entry-level wage. Unless you fit that criteria (and believe it or not, more people do than you might think), you're going to have problems getting hired.
This is made worse in a bad economy (which despite government reports has not effectively recovered in many sectors) where new grads are competing against experienced workers for the same positions.
You might ask, "Was all that school for nothing?" No, it probably gained you a lot in so-called "soft skills" (which are difficult to prove) and would be right on-track within the field you acquired your degree, but we live in a very weird time. Nowadays you're expected to leave university with $100,000 in debt just for the CHANCE to get a job that, if you're lucky, maybe pays $30,000 a year.
You might also ask, "How am I to gain experience if no one gives me a chance?" That's a classic Catch-22: You need experience to get the job, but you need the job to get the experience.
Unfortunately, employers don't care. No employer wants their business to be your training field, especially if it means you might take that experience go elsewhere (which is likely in today's market where staying at one job is unusual).
This is why the "unpaid internship" has become the new entry-level job, but there's a problem. Unpaid internships, by their very definition, don't earn you money and we all need money to survive. So in order to take advantage of this, you need to be wealthy or have a huge amount of savings or someone else paying your bills.
Most people aren't lucky enough to fall into one of those three categories, which is why you see under-employment so much today. There's a reason it's not uncommon to find the people serving you coffee at Starbucks or working as a cashier at Walmart actually have doctorates.
At this point, you're probably depressed and wondering if there's any hope. I'd like to say yes, but 90% of your future at this point really relies on luck. That's something these so-called "job experts" never talk about. Why? Because luck relies less on skill or knowing "industry secrets" and a lot more on just being at the right place at the right time.
To be fair, the other 10% involves you actually having skills, education, and being ready to take advantage of a situation if you do indeed get lucky.
So Ive been in retail since I was in high school and I'm desperately trying to get out. Do not like retail, never have but its easy to get a retail job and after being in this career after so many years Ive become stuck. I have no other experience, so I feel like I cant even apply to certain jobs, i.e administrative jobs. I have no clue where to start.
MDhunni08 Try learning from this video for starters. I would recommend learning about networking with professionals and using social media to your advantage. Honestly speaking from my experiences, these particular tactics helped me a lot.
I have that to and I turned down jobs that were probably great opportunities. I hate myself sometimes. But I guess it comes down to this, I rather not waste someone's time. Really angered this one guy, he felt the interview went well and he could not understand why I turned it down?
I think getting a job with no experience all depends on what kind of jobs you are applying for, where you live, whether the business is local or corporate, what the hiring process entails, and how confident you are about yourself and your skills. Of course, being able to b.s. certainly doesn't hurt either. 😀 I am an introvert and I use to get terribly nervous during interviews, and then one day I decided to go into the interview pretending that I was already going to be hired for the position. It worked. My nerves went away, I felt calm and confident and I got the job. Over the years I have continued to do the same thing, while also reading up on body language to use during an interview, what to wear,etc. The internet as a plethora of information that you can use to your advantage. You can research the company and learn about how they started, what their mission statement is and so on, after all knowledge is power. Watch videos about the proper body language, look up skill lists and resume samples for the job you want, practice writing various cover letters, and ask a friend to do a practice interview with you and take a video of yourself. You can also use Glassdoor and Indeed to look up company reviews and get the lowdown on where you want to apply. You get to peruse reviews by past and present employee's and decide if you truly want a job there. The bottom line is if you want to work, then you need to be prepared to do the necessary work to land the job. Or you could start your own business, find jobs on Care.com, work online, be a brand ambassador, merchandiser, Uber driver, go to college and get a work study job while attending school, and so on.
New question for you. How to ask for your job back after you quit or left with a sour taste in their mouth. Examples I was let go from a school district as a sub. Went to another and applied what I learned and did better. But my old district as a fulltime position that I really want at a school. But how do I show that my personal brand is much or better than before.
This video is not teaching you anything but making money for presenter per view count! If your are reading some theorical job application procedure produced by froud business schools in which you gain nothing but making their pocket fat, probably you will start to speak like this lady!!!
Hi Linda, thank you so much for sharing these fantastic keys. They helped me a lot. I will have an important interview after a few days for a PhD position. I'm sure that your hints will help me. I will cm once I got accepted.:))))))
Well there is a job opening for a golf town cashier in my city. I’ve won several tournaments and competitions and the experience I gained from those is performing under great pressure to the point where pressure doesn’t effect me that much because I have confidence in my abilities and talent.
Just an example I’m going to use for my first job at 27
Hi ! Linda Raynier ! I am 23 and I have never done a job before .. now I am going to apply for a job but I am nervous about my interview .. I saw your video and found it helpful so I subscribed your channel.. I need your help to understand how to create a personal brand .. all I understood is by personal brand you meant to say "how to convince the interviewer by telling him about yourself ? but you need to talk by connecting stories about yourself and your past experiences in flowing order" But what if you have no experiences ? How to deal with the interview without any experience ? Please help me figuring out how to create a personal brand and how it is so important ? Thank you !
I got my foot in the door of Customer Support Specialist without any actual training except for working at a grocery store. Apply for a seasonal position where they'll contract you for 3-4 months then let you go, that's what got me a lot of callbacks since I had even a LITTLE bit of experience.
Thank you for making this video. However, how can you express your personal brand through your cv? Most of the time, candidates who have more experience, get invited to interview with a company. Most of entry-level roles in Europe require at least 2-3 years of experience. Why would they settle for somebody without experience, if they can offer a position for somebody, who has years of international experience?
Personally, I believe it's important to adjust your cv so you start get calls from companies.
21 with no job, I've had some experience at things I hate and I have no idea what I want to do. Feels like I am stuck at home with parents who I can't ask for help and I feel like I'm getting depressed not doing anything. I can apply for jobs online when the occasional thing comes up but then I never call back or take that next step to take a job because I think what if something better comes along and what if I can't stand it there and burn out working a full time job and end up quitting.
