Job interviews are an inevitable part of any job search. So, handling them well is key to building a fulfilling career. Regardless of whether you’re looking at a more junior role or strive for a role as a business executive, you need to maintain your professionalism every step of the way in order to stay in the game.
It's hard to imagine a scenario where a text or phone call just won't do these days. With communication at our fingertips, you may think learning how to write an address is a superfluous skill. But it's a skill that will come in handy when you need to fill out healthcare forms, ship a package, order food delivery, or even apply for new jobs.
Pay stubs are an important piece of document which shows your earnings in a given period, as well as any deductions made towards your health insurance or pension contributions. They’re also excellent for finding out how much your recent salary raise has bumped up your monthly net income.
It might be tempting to overlook the importance of a well-written job description. After all, if you’ve posted job ads before and ended up with tons of resumes in hand, it’s easy to assume that this will always be the case, regardless of how your job ad reads. But, in reality, you really can’t take getting an influx of resumes for granted.
When tax time rolls around, the last thing you want to worry about is having to track down a W-2 from your former employer. Many times you won’t have to because the IRS requires companies to send these forms to all current and former employees who have earned more than $600 in the last year. Unfortunately, there are employers who don’t do what they’re supposed to. There are even times where something else may happen that prevents the W-2 from getting where it’s supposed to go.
One part of the job-hunting process that frequently gets overlooked is putting together a list of good references. Most of the time we focus on creating the perfect resume, writing an awesome cover letter, and getting our hands on letters of recommendation. We think about what outfit we’ll wear to the job interview, how we’ll answer those tricky questions, and what our career plan looks like. But, in fact, having multiple references lined up who will speak favorably about you to a potential employer is critical to landing a job. This aspect of job searching really can’t be ignored.
