|Mr. Utah Hospitality since 2001|
Utah Hospitality Jobs has gathered tips and bits from Utah Hotels, Resorts, and Restaurant employers over the 18 years. Each of us needs a plan to give power to our career. The reason is to keep ourselves on track as we go through the job search process. The plan is to make sure we reach the goals we have set. The four parts of a career power plan are:
1) Planning Process
A simple one page statement of your goals, both personally and professionally for the next several upcoming years.
2) Dynamic hard hitting Career Package including:
The content, and how you present your resume needs to change to reflect current market conditions. Employers say they need solid, factual information on a candidate before they will invest the time to make a phone call, pay for interview trips, relocation expenses, etc. Prospective employers do not have the time to call every person that sends in a resume. The old fashioned resumes that resume writing books and resume writing services are pushing, is wrong for the hospitality industry at this time. Long resumes, that highlight concrete accomplishments, are generating more interviews. Your objective needs to be specific. Your objective, experience, and professional affiliations all need to sell you. A dynamic resume starts a mindset in prospective employer's that says "This person can really help us. We need to impress this candidate. We may have to pay this person a little more than we planned on, but it sure appears this person will be worth it." That's the mindset you want to create before they pick up the phone to call you. It starts you out in the driver's seat. It's much better to be in the driver's seat than in the back seat.
3) Personal Marketing Plan to include:
Working your own network of contacts. Utilizing Executive Search firms and other professional organizations you belong to. A plan to expand your network of contacts. This is very critical if you are currently without a job.
4) Research Companies
Before you interview, research the company, to find out exactly what they are looking for in a candidate. If you can't find information on the company, remember the following: all companies want people who can help them improve revenues, reduce costs, improve customer service and training, and reduce turnover. Prepare for your interview. Write down the most logical questions you think they will ask and then rehearse your answers in front of a mirror. Many people conduct interviews and hire people all the time. They forget that it is different when they are on the other side of the desk. Last, plan what you are going to wear and how you are going to look. The business world is still very conservative, plan accordingly.
The best interview questions employers use start with "How," "What," and "Why." When employers use those words they give you a chance to explain what you have done and where you did it.
Employers are looking to hire people who can make their company better.
Following are a few questions employers commonly ask. Most of the questions appear simple. As applicants read through the questions their typical reaction is "I know that." It isn't whether you know the answer or not, but whether you can give the answer clearly and concisely the first time you are asked the question.
To find out how well you are prepared answer each of the questions out loud. That will immediately tell you which questions you do know answers to and which of the questions you need to practice answering until you can quickly and clearly answer the question.
You never get a second chance for a first impression.
