Not Getting Interview Calls?

January 16th, 2014 by Rozee Team

Getting a rejection may not be as disastrous as you think. It Waiting-for-Call-Back-Interviewcould be very fruitful for the time to come. But, many times we don’t realize things that we can’t see.

Often a job seeker believes that he is the perfect candidate for a vacancy. However, he is hit with a shock when another applicant gets the job. It often happens. Even with the perfect education and experience and a perfect portfolio to brag the skills, things can go the unexpected way. It is definitely not the ideal case but this situation can prove to be prolific in future when you try for other jobs.

Read on to see why some potential job seekers miss on the opportunities and how the problems could be corrected.

A Cover Letter…Icing on the Cake

A well-shaped Cover Letter can make a difference. It could make you stand out in the crowd and make you the lucky one who gets selected. As it is rightly said that the first impression is the last impression, a cover letter is the first impression that is cast upon the employer as he starts reviewing your application. A cover letter is the company’s first exposure to you. It decides whether your application lands in the trash bucket or is shortlisted.

While writing a cover letter, don’t go the traditional orthodox way with “Dear Sir/Madam” followed by a generic script. The cover letter has to say something that makes you different from the rest of the applicants and it makes you a promising candidate. Don’t just copy and paste the conventional lines; be yourself and let yourself shine in the Cover Letter. Read More »

January 16th, 2014 by Rozee Team

Question from the Job Seeker

I have been working as a Junior Public Relations Manager in a private organization. It has been a couple of years now and I completely understand the nature of work and the problems that could arise. I have done reasonably well and am able to tackle issues that were sometimes faced by the seniors too. Now, the Senior Public Relations Manager is leaving the organization and although the position should have been filled internally, as I deem myself capable of doing the job and I deserve it as well, the company has hired another person for the position.

I feel completely ignored and unmotivated. Shall I leave the job and move on with some other opportunity?

Employment Screening: A Win-Win for Employers and Employees

November 20th, 2013 by faizan.haq

Employment screening can be a new term for many job candidates and even for many HR professionals and HR service providers. The simplest definition of Employment Screening is that it is a process of verifying employee’s credentials, educational history, previous employment records, national ID etc, for originality and authenticity.

Employment screening helps employers in identifying right individuals with legitimate qualifications and job experiences. In this highly competive environment, it is the ethical resposiblity of HR departments to conduct a proper employment screening to hire only those inidviduals who work hard to earn qualification and job experiences, and to close their doors for those who fake their education and employment history.

Employer screening is a positive measure that employers can take in order to maintain a high productivity environment and to overcome the challenges of recruitment. This process makes employers to save a lot of money and time that would otherwise be wasted on interviewing job applicants having fake degrees and fake employment references. The advantage of using an employment screening service is double-fold and effective in terms of cost.

Employment screening is not beneficial just for employers; it has so many benefits for employees as well. Employees who once get verified via employment screening process do not need to prove their qualification again and again. Employees get a complete control over their employment and educational reputation. Verified employees demonstrate their trustworthiness and preparedness wherever they apply.

Question from the Job Seeker

I am working as a Software Engineer at a small Software House. The company is in its infancy so sometimes the workload is more than the team can effectively handle. Due to these issues, the shifts become long and sometimes we need to work on weekends as well. I am enthusiastic about the job but sometimes the situation gets on my nerves. No matter how hard I try, I fail to meet the deadline once in a while. These issues are affecting my performance; I don’t want to have a bad experience over here because this is the start of my career!

What steps shall I take to help myself and ease up the situation?

Talk to the boss about the issue, I am sure that he would really appreciate you sharing the issue with him. You can sort out some plan or strategy to make life easier and hence the quality of your work will improve. Read More »

Surviving Office Politics

October 7th, 2013 by Rozee Team

An organization, which has office-politicsmore than one person working in it, is bound to have office politics. The frowns, the dislikes and the scowls become inevitable. It might not be possible to stay out of it but it is often wise to stay as far as possible from the whirlpool of office politics because it can effectively harm your career!
