Which Jobs Provide an Option for Work-Life Balance?

December 20th, 2016

If you’re looking for a job that allows you to exercise the sought-after work-life balance, here is a list of the top 10 jobs you should consider. The jobs are categorized but are in no particular rank.

The first category is made up of jobs that are more technical, solitaire jobs. Yes, you’ll have to work with people, but most interaction will be with software systems, computers, and there’s a greater possibility to work remotely.

Research Engineer – Research engineers apply their expertise and knowledge to technical projects, finding innovative, cost-effective means to improve research, techniques, procedures, and/or products and technologies.

Devops Engineer – DevOps (a compound of development and operations) emphasizes the collaboration and communication of both software developers and other information-technology (IT) professionals while automating the process of software delivery and infrastructure changes.

Mobile Application Developer – Mobile application developer is a person who creates, tests, and programs mobile applications for end-users.

User Interface Designer – User interface (UI) designers are responsible for how the product is laid out. They are in charge of designing each screen or page of user interaction and ensures that the UI visually communicates the path that a UX (user experience) designer has laid out.

Data Scientist – A Data scientist is someone who makes value out of data. Responsibilities typically include creating various machine learning-based tools or processes within the company, such as recommendation engines or automated lead scoring systems. People within this role should also be able to perform statistical analysis.

The second category of jobs includes positions that would require more person-to-person collaboration, working with a team, and would require more time in an office or in meetings.

Technical Account Manager – Technical account managers are the people responsible for managing all the technical aspects of a company’s relationship with its clients. Their job description involves them working closely with the business and sales account management team in order to win new business and increase sales.

Recruiting Coordinator – Recruiting coordinators are responsible for attracting candidates, evaluating resumes, scheduling and conducting interviews and managing the hiring paperwork. They have a thorough knowledge of HR best practices and have innovative ideas.

Strategy Manager – A strategic manager helps top leadership establish and prioritize business objectives that align the company with opportunities and protect it from unwarranted risks. These managers use analytical and problem-solving skills to build roadmaps to lead the company toward gaining a sustainable competitive advantage.

User Experience Designer – User experience (UX) designers have a very good understanding of technology, business goals, and psychology. Their main task is to conduct user research, interviews, and surveys, and then use the gathered information to create sitemaps, wireframes, and prototypes.

Corporate Recruiter – The corporate recruiter is responsible for more than just finding great talent to fill one position; they must also write job descriptions, screen resumes, interview candidates, extend job offers, implement onboarding strategies and keep accurate records of all candidates and new hires.

5 Tips to Nail Your Next Phone Interview

July 27th, 2016

Westchester NY Temporary Staffing

The hiring process has gotten longer over the years. It’s rare to have just one interview anymore. Instead, companies are taking advantage of technology by having preliminary, although just as important, interviews over the phone or using a video call service.

In this post we’ll talk about ways to feel confident in your phone interview, allowing you to make a lasting impression – without even meeting your interviewers face-to-face.

1. Be Prepared.

You might be able to hold the interview in the comfort of your own home, but that does not mean that you should split any focus. Be just as prepared for this interview as you would be for an in-person interview. The people on the other end will be able to tell if you came prepared or slacked off before you got on the call. Have a notebook ready with talking points or for taking notes, and have your resume out to reference. Good preparation is the start of a great phone interview!

2. Find a Quiet Location.

Nothing is worse in a phone interview than having a lot of noise in the background distracting from your conversation. Phones are sensitive to noise, a public space will probably give away your location to your interviewers on the other end.  They should not hear friends or family members having a good time, nor should they hear a coffee drink being artfully prepared.

3. Dress the Part.

Of course, this is optional. You could do a phone interview in your pajamas if you’ve nailed all the other points. However, many job candidates find that dressing to impress actually helps them feel put together and in a professional mindset for the interview.

4. Walk Around and Project Your Voice.

Having a phone interview gives you the option to walk around and talk with your hands in a judgment-free zone. Go for it! You need to be able to communicate your enthusiasm and expertise over the phone, so if you keep yourself lively, people will be able to hear your passion on the other end.

5. Smile!

Next time you’re on the phone, listen for the difference in your voice inflection when you smile versus other times. It changes, and people want to hire happy people. Plus, smiling, even to yourself, keeps you engaged in the phone interview and helps communicate the enthusiasm and drive you have for the job position.
