5 Attributes You Need to Get a Job at Google

Link: http://jobs.siliconindia.com/career-news/5-Attributes-You-Need-to-Get-a-Job-at-Google-nid-161986.html

Do you aspire to land a job at Google? You will be amazed to know that good grades, high IQ or being successful at your current position is not enough to land a job at this renowned organization.

Check out the list of five attributes that you need to display to bag an offer letter from the search engine giant, as listed by New York Times.

1. Humility: As per Laszlo Block, who is senior vice president of people operations at Google, in a competitive space that often witnesses numerous creative heads join forces to keep the company up and running, it is essential for individuals to step back and allow others to contribute. And he added that the candidates who show that they possess this ability during the screening process are bound to be rewarded.

In his words, “Your end goal is what can we do together to problem-solve? Hence it is essential for you to do your bit, then step back and allow others to take over,” reports the New York Times. And he added that, “Without humility, you are unable to learn. Successful, bright people rarely experience failure and so they don’t learn how to learn from that failure.”

2. Ownership: This is another sought-after skill that is closely linked to humility. As per Block, after recognizing and admitting any errors, the next step is to take responsibility. And if a candidate doesn’t abide by this rule, he is bound to end up in the bottom of the pile. It is also essential for candidates not to blame problems on other people. In his words, “Committing the fundamental attribution error, which is if something good happens, it’s because I’m a genius. If something bad happens, it’s because someone’s an idiot or I didn’t get the resources or the market moved,” is a big ‘NO’.

He also highlighted the importance of the other side of ownership, which is making one’s case heard and putting across his point without being offensive or blinkered by bias.

He quotes, “What we’ve seen is that the people who are the most successful here, who we want to hire, will have a fierce position. They’ll argue like hell. They’ll be zealots about their point of view. But then you say, ‘here’s a new fact,’ and they’ll go, ‘Oh, well, that changes things; you’re right.’”

3. It’s Not All About Good Grades Or Being Smart: Good grades can be a plus, but it doesn’t guarantee a smooth sailing during the screening process, said Block.

In his words, “The number one thing we look for is general cognitive ability, and it’s not IQ. It’s learning ability. It’s the ability to process on the fly. It’s the ability to pull together disparate bits of information. We assess those using structured behavioral interviews and validate that to make sure they’re predictive.”

4. Leadership: This is not as it is perceived to be or is not about being a braveheart-style leader, exclaimed Block. As per him, there is so much more to being a leader than simply boasting one’s resume by saying that he was the school captain or was the fastest person to become the head of a department.


He quotes, “What we care about is, when faced with a problem and you’re a member of a team, do you, at the appropriate time, step in and lead? And just as critically, do you step back and stop leading, do you let someone else? Because what’s critical to be an effective leader in this environment is you have to be willing to relinquish power.”

5. You Don’t Need To Be An Expert: Surprisingly, this attribute is the last thing that Google is looking for while screening for talent.

As per Block what Google wants to do is “take somebody who has high cognitive ability, is innately curious, willing to learn and has emergent leadership skills”.

Four Things To Avoid While Writing Your Resume

Link: http://jobs.siliconindia.com/career-news/Four-Things-To-Avoid-While-Writing-Your-Resume--nid-162158.html?utm_campaign=Newsletter&utm_medium=Email&utm_source=r1

You may be the perfect fit for a job, but employer is never going to realize that, if he sidelines your resume after a mere glance. Even in this online era and technology advancements, a great resume is still the golden ticket to a successful job hunt.

It’s common knowledge that spelling errors and grammatical mistakes are trash insights. But is there anything else that job seekers are knowingly doing wrong? Well to find what it could be, we have listed out few points that may help you to chalk out a thrash free resume, as reported by Charles Purdy of Boston.com.

1. Avoid badly formatted Resume

Looks certainly matter! If you want a thrash free resume you should keep few things simple in your resume. Few basic things you have to follow, such as using standard fonts, because it’s very hard to match fonts between Word and HTML. You need to follow the same font throughout the document. Do not use spaces or tabs for formatting a table or aligning text. As much as possible try avoiding fancy table borders because it might not be formatted correctly. And you might end up getting your resume trashed.

“I don’t like it when I receive resumes with funky fonts,” says Mona Abdel-Halim, co-founder of the Web-based resume tool Resunate, he further added, “It is not professional and it makes the resume harder to read.”

2. Avoid immature Resumes

This is one of the biggest mistakes some of the professionals do either knowingly or unknowingly. That is to present an immature resume. Professionals should realize the fact that adding pictures or cartoon characters is not professionalism. Instead you can make your resume as professional and readable as possible. Most of the employers have said that they have immediately trashed resumes that sport a picture on them; and added that cute resume additions like these are for kids and not for professionals.

3. Your resume is sneaky

David S. Williams, founder and CEO of salary consultancy Spring Raise, said that if you are unemployed, do not try to hide it, in fact reveal it. He further added that “You may be doing yourself a disservice because you may be a strong candidate for a position, but you tried to hide your current status.”

A better way to tackle this is to be as straightforward as possible on your resume. Most of the job seekers don’t realize how important it is to utilize the cover letter. It is a must to use the cover letter to give the details of your career’s progress including information about how you managed your time during your previous job. And if you still don’t remember to write a cover letter, be assured to get your resume thrown into the trash.

4. Your resume is too templated

Longtime recruiter Mike Monroe said that, unchanged, familiar resume templates from word-processing programs is irritating. He further added “This won’t automatically put you in the trash, but it tells me that you have put less thought into your resume than your competition.”

HR manager Jessica Campbell from talent agency Voices.com said one of her area of concern is “when a candidate has used a template resume,” but has not updated with his details before sending it.

To prevent your resume from ending up in the trash for this reason, focus on important things rather than beating around the bush. Avoid plagiarism because the other person is different from you. He or she might have written it to describe his or her own skills for a particular job. Think and write whatever is applicable to you and whichever suits you the best.

Career Blunders To Avoid In Your 20s

Link: http://jobs.siliconindia.com/career-news/Career-Blunders-To-Avoid-In-Your-20s-nid-162798.html

20s is a crucial period; and career is one of the most important concerns for you, irrespective of whether you are an experienced professional or a college pass-out at this point of time. People in order to, earn success and reach their goals at lightning speed find shortcuts and commit mistakes which leave a mark on their career eternally. So to succeed and have a well-off career, you need to be aware of what you do and contribute your true efforts in it. Here is a list of the most deadly career mistakes that you have to avoid in your career, reports MENSXP.


Wrong Timing:
As the quote says, “lost time is never found,” and it’s the same with workplace. Every office has different work timings but when you’re given certain timing make sure you stick by those schedules. Even if your office has the best of work environment, try being punctual and avoid being late. You might think your boss or manager might not notice anything, but they cross check more than what you do. And if your late coming becomes a habit, you might be tagged out as an irresponsible individual and hence forth miss out on opportunities or even big projects and promotions.

Unspoken Office Rules:
It’s no secret that this is the age of social media. And all of us tweet, we post, we share, and we like comments and pages. It’s all fun until our social media pages lead to our own professional demise. Not to forget this is the most common mistake professionals tend to do, that is to take advantage over the workplace guidelines. Even if your office is cool about employees using social networking sites, use it when required and don’t overdo it. Your 20s is the time to do all this, but it’s not professional at workplace. And most importantly avoid using messaging apps like Whatsapp and BBM all the time because some companies have the procedure of monitoring and reporting all your internet usage activity to their reporting managers. So be rest assured that even a speck of dirt can be used against you.


Official Communication:
Putting everything on email is one rule you should always practice. Having a record of daily activities will make you better organized at work place and most importantly you’re not in the receiving end when it comes to complaining about job not done because you can prove it with your electronic records. Therefore, sending the right information, checking all mails on your official id, replying to all mails, will help you to be in the loop and not clueless.

Not Connecting:
Well if you’re not accessible or reachable what is the point in having an account set up in top social media sites. There is ‘n’ number of professional social media sites and by far the best is Linkedln, so use it to join groups and follow big companies on it. Send personal emails to individuals, asking them to connect with you. At work place too, connect with your collogues and even with other departments. More importantly attend company events; meet new people from the industry. And never restrict yourself to people at your level. Help yourself to gain confidence in meeting the top executives in other departments, and other key people because all these things will teach you a lot of invaluable lessons and help you gain exposure.


Quiting For Money:
The Gen next is all dependent on instant remedy. In fact at present money influences most of our decisions. But running after it, can only guarantee you with uncertainties in the long run. The ideal way to go about this is to choose best companies in your industry and don’t settle for companies just to work. The company you choose determines your personality, so lend your name to the company that you can associate with. At the end of the day your job description, your experience, you’re on-the-job training should all come in line when you make the next move.

Opting for right degrees that will make the pocket full with hefty bucks in returns is what every individual looks out for. But there is a lot of debate over which degrees are the best. So when graduates hit the employment trail they could opt for some rather unusual degrees that are least popular yet can be most rewarding. Here is a list of remarkable and unusual college degrees that are all set to be trending ones in the near future, as reported by Shell Harris of TopTenz.

Taxation: Paying taxes is a hectic process but it is definitely ranked high in the job market as one of the most valued degree. So, a degree in taxation will most likely reward a job after completion.

Degree in Taxation provides various options like full time courses either in undergraduate level or PG level and further studies too. A degree in this field will give in-depth knowledge for individuals about how the taxation system works and how it can be put into paper. Although it deals with numbers, the degree allows you to work with people and organizations that regularly need their taxes revised. This degree also helps you to lend out ideas and advices to individuals and companies about tax savings and many other benefits.

Radiologic Sciences: If you’re interested in working in the fast growing medical field, but only have a limited amount of time and money to invest in your education? A degree in Radiologic Sciences could be the one which may interest you and would want to consider. Even though most of us would have not come across colleges offering this course, but the current trend shows that it is ofgreat demand and this is attributed to the booming healthcare sector.

A Radiologist’s job can seem simple at times as it mainly focuses on reading x-rays. Yet, becoming a master in this field would give an edge and gives you better knowledge how to deal with patients and their injuries and diseases.

Archeology: An Archeologists job that involve travelling across the globe tosearch for unseen artifacts, and unearth strange grounds, Indeed an interesting one. Archaeologies are the individuals who help preserve the earth’s history, which makes these individuals live every movement lively and enthusiastic. Earning a degree in Archeology isn’t easy and it certainly requires a great level of training and field work, but the rewards are much more than what you expect. With the degree being popular it is still rarely offered by some of the colleges some and the chance to become a real life Archeologist is still very much up for grabs.

Nanotechnology: Nanotechnology is the engineering of functional systems at the molecular scale. It covers both current work and concepts that are more advanced. It is also a study related to application of extremely small things that can be used across all the other science fields, such as chemistry, biology, physics, materials science, and engineering.

Individuals with this degree are not only trained to observe and study objects that are too small for the human eye to see, but they also learn how to build revolutionary products using this technology. With the help of Nanotechnologists, we can create a cleaner planet, easier lives, and almost anything that can make the world a better place. As technology claims to be the way of the future, you’d surely be benefitted in finding more number of jobs in this field. So acquiring a remarkable degree in Nanotechnology would do a word of good as a college grad.

Aromatherapy: This looks to be the most remarkable and unusual degree that you can acquire. An individual who can identify the smell of something that can be as infectious as the sight can work miracles. Aroma therapists are the individuals who can create a concoction of different scents to produce many desired results. The beauty of an Aromatherapist is that they provide therapy which can improve the health and well-being of patients. They can single handedly change your mood for the betterment of your health. On the other side, aromatherapists also play a major role in the introduction of things such as new perfume lineups. So, this degree is certainly unusual and unique which you may want to consider.

Global Governance: The degree basically educates students about the current trend in politics, sociality, humanity, philosophy, economy, and other world conflict. Degree in global governance provides individuals in-depth knowledge and skills that is required to run a country upon graduation.

It also helps you to develop a relationship with a professional in the industry, expand your network and possibly garner a job interview in the near future.


Be well prepared and approach an informational interview as usual. Carry out some research about the organization prior to the interview process and come up with a list of discussion points and questions to help things run smoothly. If necessary take some notes during the interview and exchange business card to keep in touch. But be wary and don’t be aggressive about landing a job.

2. Telephone Interview: A telephone interview is often used as the first round of screening for an open position. It is a cost effective method of interview, which basically includes behavioral questions and lasts for around 10 to 30 minutes depending upon the needs of the hiring manager. The good thing about telephone interviews is that you can have notes and other materials such as resume, cover letter, list of references and possible answers you have prepared ahead of time. Remember your answers should be unambiguous, polished and it is essential for you to convey enthusiasm for the corresponding job. It is also very essential for you to sell yourself effectively through gentle words and confident tone of your voice.


For a successful telephone interview it is essential for you to find a quite place that is free from background noise and other distractions to conduct your interview. Answer your phone with a polite greeting and avoid embarrassing lost signals or dropped calls.


3. Video Interview: Now a day’s, video interviews have become more prevalent and is the most commonly used form of interview, especially for out-of-state jobs or the one that requires remote work.

Video interviews might seem daunting at first for the job seekers, but there is no need to worry. Prepare for them as usual. Wear professional attire, be on time, research about the company prior to interview and be confident. If you have any issues with the software or technology, don’t shy away to ask for assistance.

4. Panel Interview: As the name indicates, in a panel interview a job seeker is interviewed by several individuals at once. The panel might include a variety of employees such as prospective direct manager, hiring manager and other related individuals. Although panel interview might seem intimidating, there is no need to lose sleep. If you are well prepared and maintain your composure, you should be able to sail through the process with utmost ease.


If you establish rapport with each member of the panel, take one question at a time, maintain eye contact while answering each question and stay cool, the interview should be a piece of cake and nobody can stop you from landing the job.


5. Group Interview: In a group interview, several job seekers are invited to participate in the interview process and are questioned at once. Since any group naturally sort outs into leaders and followers, the interviewer can establish which category each candidate falls into. In addition, this approach allows the interviewer to separate the best candidate from the mediocre within least possible time.


The key here is to treat this interview like any other interview. Prepare well and follow up as usual. But make sure that your voice is heard, but don’t be authoritarian. You should do nothing other than act naturally and be seen as a team player rather than a scene stealer.

4 Lessons Indian Husbands Must Learn from Sachin Tendulkar

https://in.lifestyle.yahoo.com/4-lessons-indian-husbands-must-learn-sachin-tendulkar-085506102.html

Sachin Tendulkar, the Master Blaster, is an inspiration to the world. He made his international debut when he was merely 16 years old. Mathew Hayden, the Australian batsman once said, “I have seen God, he bats at no. 4 for India in Test.” He clearly meant Sachin Tendulkar.

Our 'Little Master' has made the world proud with his antics on the field and has been named among the greatest cricketers of all times. Professional achievements aside, there is another part to Sachin– a shy boyfriend, a loyal husband and a committed life partner. As inspirational as he is in cricket, there are a lot of things that all Indian husbands can learn from this 'God of Cricket' too.

Dedication and commitment

For a person of Sachin’s stature, there is definitely no dearth of beautiful temptations. But Sachin is one of the few cricketers whose name has never been involved in a controversy with regard to his love life. While some of his contemporaries were chasing Bollywood divas, Sachin remain chaste and oblivious to abounding enticements surrounding him in all part of the world. His commitment and love towards his wife is really inspirational. Well it won't be wrong if we say that every woman should be blessed with a husband who is as dedicated as Sachin Tendulkar.

Focus on qualitative time

Since Sachin travels all over the world almost all round the year, he hardly gets to spend a lot of time with his family. However, the Master Blaster balances his work and family by ensuring that he spends qualitative time with his wife and kids whenever he is at home. He takes them out on holidays, family dinners and bonds with his family lovingly whenever around. His wife Anjali says, “He hasn’t spent Diwali at home since we got married. But it really doesn’t matter that it’s Diwali… any time he spends at home is great!” Sachin epitomises the fact that quality of time is always more important than quantity.

Only love matters

Sachin’s wife Anjali is six years elder to him. She is at least one inch taller than him. She is from a different community and culture. But all these petty things just didn’t matter. For Sachin, the boyfriend, as well as for Sachin, the husband, love is all that matters. This is one quality that every husband can emulate. Nothing is bigger than love. Once in a BBC interview when asked about his dream women, Sachin answered ‘my wife’ without batting an eyelid.

Recognises his wife’s sacrifices

Unlike a lot of husbands who never recognise the sacrifices that their wives make for the family, Sachin has gone on record time and again recognising Anjali’s contribution in his life. He concedes that he never has the time to teach his kids or spend much time with them, he always endorses that it is his wife who manages everything so beautifully at the personal front. He recognises and respects the fact that Anjali gave up her doctor’s career so that she could manage the family. (Must Read: Tricks to Become a Super Wife).

He says that Anjali has been his biggest support and even mentioned that when he is on the field batting, his wife fasts for him!

Sachin Tendulkar is a true inspiration, not only in the field of cricket but also off the field. Be it love and dedication to his family or his humility, there is a lot that every man can emulate from him. So, all the husbands out there, look beyond the Master Blaster's cricketing shots and you are sure to score a century with your wife!

8. Mr. OCD: As we all know, OCD stands for obsessive compulsive disorder. In relevance to employees, this gives a negative impression about the perfectionists. Perfectionists can sometimes be real troublemakers. They are so much dedicated to work that they focus on too much of details and make a fuss.

These kinds of employees are so efficient that sometimes people take advantage of them knowing that the perfectionist will take care of all the mess. Perfectionists should be inspired more and more in order to keep their spirit fresh and up going.

10 Things Today's Employers Look For Before Hiring

As the workplace skills and requirements keep changing rapidly, job seekers need to update themselves with the newest trends for professional success. But having the right skills is just one the qualities that employers look for while assessing the potential employees.

Candidates wish if they could somehow read the minds of the employers and get to know the combination of skills and values they are looking for.

Every job requires a specific set of skills to get the work done but there a lot more you need to have apart from the technical skills. Candidates should keep in mind of what values they have to offer to bag the job.
Here’s a list of 10 things employers notice in employees while evaluating their potential for the job, reports Business Insider.

1.Potential
Some employers favor potential over accomplishments. The potential of a candidate to achieve a certain task stimulates more interest than references to prior achievements. Employers focus on the potential of the candidates and gauge how ideal a particular candidate is for the job. They also evaluate how far the applicant is competent to get the job done. Job seekers, thus, need to have determination and excitement for the job role they are being offered.

2.Creativity
Many applicants are blessed with immense power of creativity; however they choose not to express it. Creativity is one of the best qualities candidates can have and that’s exactly what employers look for. Creativity is not a mere artistic quality; even the world of business needs its application. Employers look for candidates who have creative and unique ways to solve the conventional problems. Therefore, you need to convince your potential employer that face challenges head on.

3.Adjustability
The idea of moving to a new job is exciting and equally daunting as we step into a new work culture. Most of the new joiners cannot cope with transformation and require unusually long time to adjust to the new workplace. Considering this, companies hire those who confident to meet new colleagues and aren’t nervous about fitting in.

4.Ability to Add Value
Employees are expected to put in extra efforts into the job and function a bit beyond the call of duty. Companies want employees who can go an extra mile and work harder to produce better results. Job seekers need to let their employers know that their skills can help the company in making money and add value to their firm.

5.Outstanding Résumé
First impressions always count. Résumé delivers your first impression to your potential employer and a major part of the interview depends on how unique and interesting your résumé is. Résumés should be customized depending on the job role you are applying for. The résumé is more like your business card that acts as a selling tool to win over the interviewer. So be sure the CV is quite convincing.

6.Pertinent Job experience
Most of the interviewers require an evidence that you have the potential to do a certain work and that’s evident from your prior work experience. Work experience is thus a confirmation of your suitability. Recruiters can be convinced that you have the skills for the job considering you have already some relevant experience of the same kind of work.

7.Strong Online Profile
Social media is a key prospect in landing a job today. Being active on social networking sites on a daily basis is not only useful for searching jobs, it can also aid in the hiring process. The rising trend of social media has piqued the interest of HR professionals who look for candidates who can offer active and engaging corporate social media presence.

8.Multitasking
The quest to maximize productivity with minimal resources has lead to an increasing need of multitasking in organizations. Employers are thus in search for employees with ability to perform multiple tasks regardless of their assigned job role. Candidates who come forward with the willingness to learn new things and work out of their comfort zone are considered versatile and are readily hired by companies.

9.Enthusiasm
The process of the hiring appear stressful and hectic to many but applicants should not forget to display their enthusiasm to recruiter. There are circumstances when the stress wins over enthusiasm in the wake of displaying professionalism. However, saying it confidently that want the job with a smile on your face reflects the enthusiasm in you and leaves a good impression on the recruiter.

10.Cultural Fit
For most companies these days, the cultural fit carries more weight than the academic grades. Employers look for workers who can fit into their organization, team and the company’s managerial style. The candidate must be able to express flexibility in work and his ability to lead or work as a team.

10 ways to survive a stressful job

Stress has become part and parcel of our life and, particularly, workplace today.


However, while some stress is normal, excessive stress can interfere with your productivity and can also impact your mental and physical health.

Workplace stress is generally associated with the pressure one is encompassed by the issues at the workplace. Although workplace stress can’t be avoided, however, there are means to manage or at least reduce it. Here we take a look at some of them:

1. Self-Introspection
Many of us are victims of a stressful work environment. However, when it becomes to dealing with it, most of us do nothing but freak out and end up making the situation even worse.

“At these times, pep talk with yourself can come to your rescue to maintain the calm and handle whatever is thrown at you. No matter what is going inside you, the best quality of a leader is to maintain the outer composure,” says Deepak Kaistha, managing partner, Planman Consulting.

2. Enrich your life

If work and the workplace have become the all encompassing phenomena of your life, change it. Enrich your life with good time for yourself, your family, and other endeavours that truly interest you.

“Having that distance and focusing off your job actually work in its favour. Circumstances that were great stressors for you earlier may start seeming less important and bothersome from a bigger perspective,” informs Ashish Arora, founder & MD, HR Anexi.

3. Create a network of allies

Build relationships in the organization outside of your immediate work circle. Even when things are going relatively smoothly, reach out to others and share your work and plans with them. Then, during times of crisis, you will be able to fall back upon this ally bank for guidance and support.

4. Prioritize your responsibilities

No matter what your role or the time of the year is, not everything can be as important. Assess what is critical and feasible from the point of view of your plans and resources, and maintain a confident focus on them. Say ‘no’ to tasks beyond your current priorities and explain why.

5. Maintain a strong track record of success

Despite the current stress, do your best to succeed in your assigned tasks. Build and maintain a strong track record of success. Even if the underlying stress is responsible for it, failure will only add to your stress. Break out of this vicious circle even before it forms, and do not let anything compromise the quality of your work.

6. Delegate certain tasks

Delegate what others can do as good as or even better than you. Delegating not only reduces your work clutter, so that you can now go on to focus on more important things, but also improves others’ perception of you as a leader or manager.

“The biggest advantage of working in the corporate world is the ability to work in a team. A great team player shares the concerns and deadlines with the team and also delegates the responsibilities. This not only takes off the burden, but ensures a better result and hence enhanced productivity. Hence stop taking all the load yourself. Share the load and the recognition,” advises Alok Bansal, Founder CEO, Alethia Education Services.

7. D-stress yourself
Long breaths and de-cluttering your work area unknowingly reduce stress level to a great extent. Further, a positive attitude, ability to see opportunities in every situation and a good night sleep are a few factors to keep you motivated at work, without freaking out on accounts of increasing pressure.
Besides, “creating a backup of your work, going with the flow, holding on to the faith by unwinding occasionally give you much-needed space, instead of working like a machine,” says Kaistha of Planman Consulting.

You also need to practice stress coping techniques. For instance, “go for tea break. Have lunch with a peer. Read an article on your industry or competitors. In fact, taking your mind off your issues at work from time to time can help you feel more relaxed and hopeful,” says Arora.

8. Communicate your problem

If you judge it to be wise, communicate your problem to the person who could be responsible for it or help you fix it. Getting a second perspective can substantially clarify your problem, and help you see the right action to take.

“Talking out your difference of opinions with a boss or colleague can at times be a positive step towards reducing the friction between both of you,” says Arora.

9. Develop yourself

Stress, all said and done, is relative. What is stressful to one may not trouble another. If your capabilities and attitude are stronger than your stressors, then you will not complain of stress, even if your circumstances are slow to change.

“In addition to applying different practices and techniques to cope with your stress, your most important weapon against it is – YOU. If you develop yourself at all levels – technically and behaviourally – you can become bigger than your stress,” says Arora.

10. Have a back-up plan

What is your back up plan if you do not succeed in your current role, or cannot keep your job? A lot of our ‘stress’ is our mental and physical response to the fear of what might happen if our current plan fails.

Having a back-up plan can help you allay those fears to a large extent. It helps you accept and be at peace with what you will do if, despite giving your best, your current efforts fail.
