All right now let's go straight out to San Francisco California not too far from Las Vegas where everything tech is happening but since this is our career accelerated Tuesday it.
We have to switch gears and talk about to the market up and -- none of the DP of us simply hired.
Talking about with us right now.
-- -- get getting a second job some people want it for.
Maybe job security they don't think they're gonna their first -- is.
In jeopardy perhaps some and fall back I'm not some more money right and doesn't need more money right now so.
And a welcome and what is this idea of taking on a second job is is it common these days.
You know good morning and thank you for having us here Lauren it's definitely.
Very common especially in the seasonal hiring period such as holidays.
Yet very very common now because well -- -- holidays because -- just actually there was a report from challenger gray and Christmas.
An -- answer a short -- surprise me a little -- Well we did -- at 68000.
Person rise in in climate this holiday season.
Vs last year so that's great news it meant the businesses were taking on the new workers even just temporarily.
And the workers were saying okay this could be in some cases -- more job.
So yes so that makes sense any other translate -- -- to -- I'm definitely notice saying it a slight increase in in the jobs level in the marketplace -- In the seasonal hiring as well we saw an uptick in the seasonal hiring this time you know.
-- -- Did -- people say it's they want to second job for more money or more job security in the event that there -- main job doesn't work out for them.
It's a number of reasons it's primarily money and it's.
It's the financial burden off you know caring.
Carrying out through the holidays but also the security of having a second job when they're not confident off their first job.
So they try to have their feet into places so that they can.
Have a fallback.
Right right so some tips and on how to not let that second job take over your life in and ruin your full time main job.
Absolutely I think it's pretty critical.
To understand why you're taking on that second job.
And also to see if you yourself are ready for it.
And are able to to do something like that because it certainly puts -- burden on you.
On your energy level on your.
Emotional violence and you know US an individual.
And -- contrary to make sure.
So look -- prairie should we be setting.
It's critical to understands.
Which job is more important because at the end of the day if you're doing two jobs.
There will be conflicts in schedules that will be conflicts in.
You know demands on your when your time.
And at the end of the day you will have to make some compromise.
So it's really critical tool to be sure of which job comes forest.
And being very clear on your priority.
When you have to make a decision.
In short order.
All this has to be stressful right the time commitments juggling different schedules and needs what she did to.
What should you do to make sure that you have some time for yourself and sanity.
If you are working two jobs.
Well I would say -- definitely want to start a little bit slow and tried out forest and see if it actually is something that you.
Can handle -- you want to do and -- CU.
And it and see if you can figure out a way to balance the two jobs.
Take out some time for yourself whether it's.
Just taking -- brief coffee break or a walk around the block.
But make sure you have time to to -- and you know take care of yourself -- a little events.
And as to -- thank you so much with simply hired we appreciate you coming on enjoy your day there.
Thank you so much okay.
And I'm going to chat first second have isn't anyone listening say I'm sure most people have a second job because they can't get a full time position and you're probably right.
For the majority of those instances that's just the nature of the beast that is the job market more on the job market in the best ways and I'm telling you I went through some of these ways to best apply for a job.
They are good and I have not heard all of them the force will be back right after this with those ideas.
Welcome back okay searching for a job certainly not easy and -- to give us tips about how to make -- most effective -- worthwhile is with the latter is Amanda Augustine.
Pretty in purple joining me it's my left in Q how are you -- job search proud yeah Celine outlook -- So what I've learned over the last decade I've worked with the latter's is that they're basically three -- ways to go about.
Fighting the most leads post published as well as hidden in the first is applying and properly following up to online listings.
The second is maximizing your networking with both professional as well as a personal -- -- and then the third is engaging with recruiters -- all three of those together you're gonna find mostly it's out there.
I love -- it properly following up the -- flipped it he had -- what is the best way to do that.
So what I recommend is that if you are gonna put the cover letter together when she should she don't know the recruiter will read it or not he better have -- -- -- -- average not a time they do you look at the cover letter if they look at it.
We know that here at the letters we did -- survey that said.
We looked at how long recruiters looking at your resonating and we asked them Helen do you think you look at it and they said a minute -- resonate well turned out to be six seconds six seconds to left off severe media outlet and they are getting out is it worth my -- and not worth my time flat so it is and we -- we've also found about 50% of recruiters say cover letters must happen 50% admit they never look at it.
You don't know -- you're dealing with the better half one and what should it look like I personally recommend having three sections first says.
Why an interest in the job and proves that I've done my research about the job with -- a confidential job about the industry coming sentences could say.
33 and fishermen are back at first aircraft the middle section is more about shelling.
This is what you're looking for and this is how I think that so I actually like to use -- tee format where you make a columnist says.
These are your requirements these -- my qualifications.
Seeking literally 22 columns in the middle.
And then your third brings it home that says I would love to put my unique skills and experience to work to provide value to your employer.
Most important part though is actually have a call to action at the end I will follow up on this job in.
-- states which is normally not one business week where there's a close stayed on the job three days after the close state.
If ever want more to do you suggest it would be awfully easy for the job of -- to find.
Now -- -- -- literally doing educate more accurately.
Even giving -- the next course of action saying that I'm gonna call yes it the ball and still keeping the only court but you can be if you have any questions but I know I'm gonna follow up with you.
And it's not -- to thank you try and reach out afterward and music to -- you literally mean.
On half of the page right you asked for this and then the other half and I bring this this and that exactly.
And if it doesn't it doesn't allow you to do that these are a plain text version yet I make it three bullet points as to what you're looking for and then directly below that triple -- it's telling me those yeah it's really clever.
It just a viewer attack coming in isn't anyone listening to -- -- for a job I would recommend you delete your FaceBook saying ha ha yes yes I have well.
What I would say is that you have to look at it every catch up out there and -- decide is it for professionally use or is it for personal use but FaceBook is also part of -- networking patents it is out is that I don't -- -- completely discounts social media no not at all it's not.
There was a survey done this past summer that statins over 800.
HR professionals and recruiters in the unites states.
And they found was a job site survey and they found that 92%.
Those polled said yes we're using social media to recruit so.
Using only one method if you're only applying to jobs online if you're only networking -- -- fully engaging recruiters -- -- -- a third of of what's possible help you find the so you want to dabble in all of them because like you said earlier you don't know what the employer's gonna be looking at right you can't.
Take your chances -- higher ground exactly and you -- -- use -- in tandem.
They found that your ten times more likely to get a call back if you have an employee referral with your application.
Exactly exactly someone here who can actually -- name.
That's why it's really important do your research before you actually applied to a job.
It's not a confidential listing you -- -- find out do you know anyone in your network Wright who is from that company what are some tips to take full advantage of -- on line.
Possible jobs so I think the first part is understand what companies really interest you.
And look on Twitter to see if that company is posting jobs there on their -- page.
You want to look at text and -- asked as well advertisement traditional online sources I mean you want to find.
Different -- sources that are posting jobs and you want to create seats searches that are customized based on what you are qualified to do.
I just speaking on getting stressed out -- I'm not looking for a job one because that are it's so multifaceted.
Life these days.
That you have to be if it's not as simple as calling somebody -- vaccine horizon may.
We're talking about email possibly emailing meeting up checking Twitter checking that -- -- good if replying to a lot of jobs at once you have to keep this up.
All of the various things automatic and player's and that's why I think this the second -- of applying to jobs is really making sure when you're gonna put the time to actually applied -- that job.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- If they say the NBA is required it's a must have been you don't have that.
That is a waste of your time and in time is money in the top search what is the best way to show off your expertise.
So I think that goes into the networking really you want to make sure you have a polished online profile that's going to.
Really aligned with your job schools and it's gonna highly irrelevant skill sets and your qualifications.
So that recruiters are looking at those sites are gonna find -- but also so when -- networking you are strengthening your personal -- -- so make sure it's an alignment with your resume.
This the real estate you're using on those profiles is high relating to the most important experience and achievements that are most relevant your -- And when you're doing research for those companies what are some course that you recommend that make it easier.
Resources like evolved for instance glass door the vaulted glass store are really great sites from -- trying to get the sense of company culture because you wanna make sure that this -- -- -- -- but you.
When I've been talking -- -- as we know there's always an 8020 rule for everything there's an 8020 rule when it comes to recruiting.
You get a face to face interview 20% of that time is spent confirming that you really have the technological -- that that they pre screened -- for.
80% of that time is trying to determine.
Are you gonna fit -- with this team.
Because you -- have the best -- in the world but if you're not gonna work well with this -- nothing's gonna get done.
So you want to make sure it's the great working environment for you and -- you're both gonna feel comfortable this relationship.
And when you get frustrated which everybody.
Searching for a job does -- How do you want to take a break point -- quit trying to get out.
Well I think you need to take a step back I think everyone's gonna have a bad today.
But if you have a bad day at work normally you come back the next day and you have to do double work time -- -- actually put in more effort.
Because you need to get back on track you have schools have a -- same thing happens but the job search.
He may need to take a -- backing me need to take a break me to keep yourself whole weekend off and didn't have to come back with got guns blazing you have to actually double your efforts.
And also identify what are you doing that's not working.
And what aren't you doing enough and that's really -- comes in what I call harnessing the power of three he's an -- -- methods to look.
Certainly that's not an anti just he can't stay with us but we'll bring into this -- while but Michael Woodward doctor -- is here joining us.
And she was talking about search for yourself find out what you're doing wrong when you're doing right.
And that's part of you that we're implementing in 2013 happy new year happy new year -- it's been a -- also how we do our best.
Ourselves in 2013.
As you mentioned the big challenges this time a year were all making New Year's resolutions.
And what drives me crazy when it comes to the job search is that.
-- New Year's resolutions especially with -- resolving to get a new job -- get back out on the market.
They tended to kind of lofty invade in -- and the -- to him.
So what I'm saying is I don't want to hear your resolving get a job in 2030 and -- here what is your plan for getting a job in 2013 and it's gotta start.
With the clear and specific destination.
So what does it actually look like so that you have a target to focus on -- Yes but literature class you're writing something he must have a point and it teaches us that to get -- and -- -- liturgy because I.
Houses that have actually had several they're not all successful.
-- -- I got it good piece of advice.
Imminent go to the chat and a some neighbors from me big many 323 I -- many.
And you still have enough yet degrees degrees degrees and then some people say that those degrees aren't even worth it.
You know we're going back says maybe if he would -- & Associates degree those jobs are really bad right now but thanks for reading and big meaning also say.
Twenty million folks can't find one job and some are worried about finding -- second.
That was packed -- -- -- and spreading they've been.
-- activity we -- back here -- so what is questions you should ask yourself when you do start feeling stuck in your career studying data that's what's it.
Here's the -- -- at times we can be our own worst enemy by holding ourselves back.
Beginning -- the your first you need to look back and think about what are the things that you didn't do.
That may need to start doing what are some of things you did that didn't work out so the toughest thing is facing ourselves in the mirror and I selling the psychologists here but.
It's true I and I try.
And then the next thing is you ask yourself those -- what things that that made me feel stuck what are some of the things.
That I wasn't proactive enough about what are some of things that were counterproductive and start thinking about.
We're going need to do moving forward so things like.
Just committing it to specific.
Actions that's what people don't do.
A lot of this is -- right what -- list price you have -- fire up your network.
Right -- -- and even before you get to firing at the network first of all when it comes of cleaning make sure you have some specific details around those activities you need to do.
Like rewriting your resonate.
Joining a job board like the -- for example.
Or getting out and making this context -- say and making contacts isn't just about.
Well you know hopping online are calling some friends.
-- you've got to be very focused and deliberate about it -- need to set an actual schedule yet because your job is getting a job this year.
And now it is -- job and a -- you don't the answer to this.
Should you basically say from nine to five Monday through Friday I'm going to be working on getting a job they did that much time how much times.
When you talk hair you know.
I think -- numbers and most most job seekers dropped jaws drop.
On average if your employees.
You're supposed to be spending fifteen to twenty hours a week and if you're unemployed it's 35 to forty hours a week so.
Yes but that doesn't mean you're sitting in front of -- computer that whole time hitting apply.
That means you're following up on leads to -- apple calls your network you're taking a friend out to lunch to pick their brain about and -- everything exactly.
