9 HomeHome | Section 1 | Section2Section 1 Section2 The interview usually addresses the issue of the three main areas: - your education/training, - motivation - personality. In addition to standard questions, The employer might ask you how you would resolve a specific problem that you may come across in the job.  Think carefully before giving you answer, speaking slowly and clearly.  If you are unsure of the question, ask for clarity.  Never tell lies or discredit former employers.  Avoid talking about your own shortcoming and avoid professional jargon.  And keep smiling Section 2:2 Interview presentation Section 2:1 Interview Techniques

10 HomeHome | Section1 | Section 2 I Section 3| Section1 Section 2 Section 3 Section 2: 2 - The rhythm and speed of your speech has hidden advantages Listen carefully to the question and then be calm and clear when responding. You will be perceived as more confident by applying this lesson. The attitude of our bodies can say a lot about us. Avoid crossing hands, arms or feet. All of these can indicate that you are not being receptive. Excessive gestures and taking notes can also have a negative impact as well as distracting you from what people are talking about. Try to remember to lean slightly towards the interviewer, smile naturally and use gestures sparingly. Visual contact is a sign of courtesy and attention. To maximize making the right impression specialists recommend visual contact for at least 30% -60% of the time during interview. Less than this and the interviewer may assume that you are hiding something or introducing elements of distrust. People who avoid eye contact can be perceived as feeling stressed, nervous or even untrustworthy During the interview the employer wants to know as much about you, the candidate, as possible. So be prepared with appropriate responses. This includes your skills, experience, motivation for work, and how you spend your leisure time. Offer any additional attributes you may have, such as language skills, working in the voluntary sector, your position within your close community, helping others and mention any courses you might be taking to improve your skills. Section 3 Effective Time working

11 HomeHome | Section 1 | Section 2 ISection 3Section 1 Section 2 ISection 3 Section 3: Effective working and time management Time management refers to a range of skills, tools, and techniques used to manage time when accomplishing specific tasks, projects and goals. It encompass a wide scope of activities, including planning, allocating, setting goals, delegation, analysis of time spent, monitoring, organising, scheduling, and prioritising. Time management strategies are often associated with the recommendation to set goals. These may be broken down into a project, an action plan, or a simple task list. For individual tasks or for goals, an importance rating may be established, deadlines may be set, and priorities assigned. This process results in a plan with a task list or a schedule or calendar of activities. Authors may recommend a daily, weekly, monthly or other planning periods, usually fixed, but sometimes variable. Different planning periods may be associated with different scope of planning or review. Authors may or may not emphasize reviews of performance against plan.

12 HomeHome |Section 1 I Section 2| Section 3Section 1 Section 2Section 3 Section 3:1 How we spend our time increases business and personal success Successful time management can help grow personal and corporate success: Look for ways that you can utilise time management skills to save and invest time. The method dictates a template which emphasises an average individual's immediate sense of emotional and monetary security. It suggests that by attending to one's personal responsibilities first, an individual is better positioned to shoulder collective responsibilities. 1.PRIORITISE - define your time and and your life goals. 2.ORGANIZING - the things you accomplish regularly to be successful 3.STREAMLINING – the things you may not want to do, but must do. 4.ECONOMISING - on the things you should or may even like to do, but are not urgent. 5. CONTRIBUTING - pay attention to things that make a difference. Section 3:2

13 Home Home I Section 1 |Section 2 I Section 3Section 1 Section 2 Section 3 Section 3:2 Goal setting Is a powerful process for thinking about your ideal future, and motivating yourself to turn a vision of the future into reality. Setting goals helps you choose where you want to go in life. By knowing precisely what you want to achieve, you know where you have to concentrate your efforts. You'll also quickly spot the distractions that otherwise could destroy your plan. A useful way of making goals more powerful is to use the SMART principles. While there are plenty of variants, SMART usually stands for: S pecific : M easurable : A ttainable : R elevant : T imely For example, instead of having a plan “to found a big enterprise” you should say “I will collect the money in two years and make a research in local market to estimate the possibilities of success in certain field”. You have to include all the parts of SMART goal setting plans. Section 3:3

14 HomeHome | Section 1 I Section 2 | Section 3Section 1 Section 2 Section 3 Section 3:3 Prioritisation: Essential a skill you need to make the very best use of your own efforts, and those of your team. With good prioritisation you can bring order to chaos, massively reduce stress, and move forwards successfully. At a simple level, you can prioritise based on time constraints, on the potential profitability or benefit of the task you're facing, or on the pressure you're under to complete a job:  Prioritisation based on project value or profitability is probably the most commonly-used and rational basis for prioritisation.  Time constraints are important where other people are depending on you to complete a task, and particularly where this task is on the critical path of an important project. Here, a small amount of your own effort can go a very long way.  And it's a brave (and maybe foolish) person who resists his or her boss's pressure to complete a task, when that pressure is reasonable and legitimate. Section 3:4

15 Home Home |Section 1 I Section 2 | Section 3 I Section 4Section 1 Section 2 Section 3Section 4 Section 3:4 Scheduling: Scheduling is the process by which you look at the time available and plan how to achieve the goals identified. By using a schedule properly, you can: Scheduling is then a five-step process: 1.Identify the time you have available. 2.Block in the essential tasks you must carry out to succeed in your job. 3.Schedule in high priority urgent tasks and vital "house-keeping" activities. 4.Block in appropriate contingency time to handle unpredictable interruptions. 5.In the time that remains, schedule the activities that address your priorities and personal goals. Remember that time management is a very important aspect, which is for sure one of the mainstays of the good job. You have to learn to prioritize the tasks. Section 4
