4 Learnership Tips For The Introvert

Introverts are naturally shy, preferring to keep to themselves or a select group of people rather than being surrounded by a larger group that they may not know as well. Being placed in an environment in which they are forced to look beyond their discomfort in order to get their job done can be a challenge that some may not want to face. Unfortunately, in the professional world it doesn?t matter if you are an introvert; you still have to complete learnerships if you want to stand any chance of getting a job after graduating university.

As an introvert, you may be wary about starting a new learnership ? trust us, we understand: a new job, a new location, a new schedule, and new people to interact with and report to. However, it doesn?t have to be intimidating or uncomfortable! Here are some ways you can thrive in your new learnership as an introvert:

1. Apply to companies with a solid internship program ? think structure

Companies with structured internship programs will feel less stressful to the introvert, as compared to companies that aren?t used to hiring students for a small chunk of time. This is because you won?t have to worry about whether or not you will get what you need out of the experience because they are prepared for you. While all experience is good experience, learnerships with less structure can be a little hard on the mind. You don?t want to have to chase your superior for work, or have to constantly ask for guidance on tasks that are ill-explained. With a structured learnership, you will get the professional development you need without the worry of stepping outside of your comfort zone to get it when it isn?t given to you.

However, this is not to say that you shouldn?t apply for other opportunities as well because you shouldn?t put all your eggs in one basket.

2. Say hello to someone new every day, especially if you are working at a large company

There is no denying that the first few days of working a new job can be daunting, particularly when you are the newbie that doesn?t know anyone, and everyone else seems to be buddy-buddy. Add in the fact that you are introverted and you may find yourself in an uncomfortable situation.

Rather than either a) feeling like you have to introduce yourself to everyone in the room (and thus getting extremely overwhelmed), or b) avoiding introductions with anyone, make a point to say hello to at least one new person a day. You may feel hesitant when it comes to introducing yourself as the newest learner, but it comes with the job. Start with your peers -? are there any other students completing a learnership at the same time as you? This may be the easiest way to make a friend or acquaintance in the beginning, as they will be in the same position as you. Suggest getting coffee or taking your lunch break together so you can learn a bit about each other and what you are each hoping to get out of the experience. Moving forward, you may be able to work together.

Next, consider introducing yourself to someone who works full-time within your department. Ask them about themselves and how they got to where they are in their career, what they studied in school and what other jobs they held before landing where they are. Not only will you be acquainting yourself with the people within your company, but you will be getting valuable tips and lessons from someone who has been in your shoes before.

Before you know it, you will have made introductions with most of the people around you, which will help lift the burden of being the new guy. Making these connections will ultimately help you feel more comfortable throughout your learnership experience, and you will slowly realize that you are feeling less and less like an introvert, and more and more like part of the team.

3. Ask questions and get comfortable with being uncomfortable

The whole point of a learnership is to learn, right? You?re not going to know very much when you start, and it may take some time for you to come to grips with the dynamics of your new working environment. With that, you?ve got to accept the fact that you will be among the most underexperienced in the room. Not knowing what?s going on and the odds of doing things wrong are great? which can be super uncomfortable and intimidating to the introvert. But, guess what? It?s expected!

To avoid getting stuck in the learning curve for too long, step outside of your comfort zone and ask questions. If you are confused or if you missed a step or instruction, simply ask for clarification. Your superiors would rather help you through a task than find that you did it wrong because you were too afraid to ask. Otherwise, they?ll wonder why you even bothered applying. You should also be diligent about taking notes which can truly help you step beyond the curve. Notes allow you to refer back when you forget what was said; they may even negate the need to ask a question.

4. Don?t dive in too deep, too fast ? take your time

With all of these suggestions, it?s also important to remain true to yourself and get comfortable on your own time. Many introverts perform their best when they are able to take the time they need to get a job done, rather than struggling to meet someone else?s deadline. However, deadlines are a real thing in the professional world, so talk to your superior about the way you work and their expectations so you can find a happy medium.

When you are given a task, take a true assessment of its requirements so you can figure just how long it will realistically take you to complete it, based on the way you work. Who else needs to be involved in the job for it to be completed? In what order do the tasks need to be done? Once you have a grip on these points, create a task list and a schedule so you can execute the job to the best of your abilities.

Learnerships can be scary for the introvert? but they don?t have to be! Follow these steps and you will create a much more comfortable experience.

5 Ways To Get Ahead Of Your Learnership Applications, Even When Your Semester Is Busy

You’re in the middle of a busy semester but you know that you need to get on top of your learnership applications if you’re going to have a job over break. How in the world are you supposed to juggle your school work AND write up killer applications when you’re this swamped? Regardless of the time of year, you should be prepping for your upcoming applications, because there are always opportunities around the corner and university doesn’t last forever! 

Here are 5 ways you can get ahead on your learnership and job applications, even when you are busy with school. 

Meet With Your Career Counselor 

Your University Career Center is there for the sole purpose of helping students get jobs! Career counselors understand how challenging it can be to apply for jobs while working through a semester and they are there to help you. Visiting your counselor can present you with tips and opportunities that you may have never known existed! Companies often send university career centers lists of job openings before posting them on job sites to give priority to students. Your counselor can not only help you clean up your resume and cover letters, but can also speed up the job search process by showing you what is available and where. The job hunt is a long and grueling one, so you can totally get ahead of your applications by taking the help while it’s available! 

Adjust Your Resume Throughout The Semester 

During the semester, you will inevitably gain experience and acquire new skills as you take different level classes, learn new programs and maybe even volunteer or work a part-time job. These are line items for your resume! If there are classes that are relevant to the jobs you are applying for, add them. If you learned how to use a new program or picked up a skill that is tailored to your field, add it. If you volunteered or worked any type of job while going to school, add it. As a student, every bit matters because you are currently without much experience, and recruiters want to see that you are not only getting the education that you need, but kept busy with other life experiences. Later in life, as you work multiple jobs, you will remove bits like which courses you took and specific skills that are no longer relevant to the jobs you are applying to. But right now, you can use it all! 

Clean Up Your Social Profiles 

We know, social media is oh so tempting, but, you may remember us telling you how it can hurt you! If your online presence on networks like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are not presentable, you may be hindering your chances of getting hired. These days, more companies than not do go out of their way to screen their applicants online. It’s so incredibly easy to look someone up on the internet and get a peek into their everyday lives; the good, the bad and the ugly. The ugly is what we are worried about.  

Employers care about how their employees present themselves to others because when hired, you are a representative of the company. Your behavior could be misconstrued as a direct reflection of the company’s ethics to potential customers and clients. With that, they want to be sure that you are going to put your best foot (and face) forward when it comes to what you post on the internet. So, get ahead of your applications by cleaning up your profiles and only publishing photos and posts that you wouldn?t mind a potential employer seeing. Don’t just hide content for your eyes only… delete! 

You should also consider limiting your friends’ ability to post content without your permission. A friend could easily tag you in an unflattering photo that you would definitely not like your future boss to see. So, head to those privacy settings to protect your professional image! 

Go To Career Fairs 

They’re offered for a reason! Career fairs are your opportunity to get a firsthand look at what companies are currently looking to hire, and to meet face-to-face with company representatives. Five minutes with a company rep (and personally handing over your resume to said rep) is far greater than submitting your application online and hoping that the right person will see it. It’s the chance to gain an advocate, to put your face to the name, and to verbally express your interest in the company. Most people don’t even get the chance to speak to someone, so take it while you can! 

Put on your best professional outfit, print off a handful of resumes, grab some business cards (if you have them ? not a bad idea!) and find out which companies will be present. Make a hitlist of those you are interested in and get there early so you are among the first to meet them! 

Network 

Duh! We will beat the importance of this tip into your head so long as you keep listening! This goes hand-in-hand with attending career fairs. Your network is, without a doubt, the most important weapon in your arsenal. When it comes to getting learnerships and jobs post university, your network means far more than what you know. A bit confusing, we know, but it’s a hard truth. The earlier you develop your professional network, the more luck you will have when you are ready to apply for jobs. 

Networking is an ongoing task because you never know who you will bump into and when. Whether there is a guest speaker in your lecture or you happen to bump into an alumni member that has been seriously successful in your field of choice… these are contacts you’re not going to want to lose! It’s never too early to start building, so network away! 

Follow these tips to get ahead of your applications, even when your semester and workload get busy! 

Interview Mistakes That Could Cost You The Job – Part 1

You’ve landed a job interview… congrats! That’s a big step, as getting your foot in the door can be a real challenge. But, the hard part is not over yet. The hardest part of this process if proving that human resources made the right decision when they chose you as one of the select few to be taken to this round. While we’d love to tell you that the interview process is smooth sailing, we can’t… because it isn’t. We want you to get that job! We’ve given you tips on what to do during your interview, so now it’s time to talk about what NOT to do. 

Here are 9 interview mistakes that could be the detriment to your chances of getting hired. 

  1. Arriving Late.There is nothing about showing up late that looks good to anyone in any situation, so why show up to your interview later than you were asked? Remember, this meeting is meant to help the company decide whether or not you would be a good fit for the position and the company. Don’t just be on time, be early. Take potential traffic, directions and parking issues into account before leaving, and factor that into your overall commute time. It is recommended that you arrive 10 minutes prior to the interview time. This not only leaves room for you to review your notes and take a restroom break, but it also shows that you are punctual, excited for the opportunity and reliable. All very important characteristics of a potential hire.  
  2. Showing Up Unprepared.We?ve preached the importance of being prepared for interviews on countless occasions, and for good reason. Your interview preparedness is a direct indication of your work ethic, in your interviewer’s eyes. Coming in for your scheduled interview without some kind of strategy may make them think that you would approach the job in the same manner. Treat your interview like an exam. If you don’t prepare for it, chances are you will perform poorly. Do your research on the company and the position to get an idea of how you would be a good fit. Use this information when you’re answering and asking questions, to show that you didn’t dive into the interview blind. Show up unprepared and you can kiss your chances of getting hired goodbye.  
  3. Underdressing.Do not, under any circumstances, show up to your interview looking like you just rolled out of bed, or don’t care about your appearance. Unfortunately, you will be judged by how you look, so put together a professional outfit and make a good impression.  
  4. Interrupting Your Interviewer.This falls in the same hand as challenging your interviewer, which we will explain in part 2. We don’t want your potential peer or superior to be put off by you. It can be hard to keep your mouth shut when you are enthusiastic or excited. However, this is not the place to talk over or interrupt the other half of this conversation. Don’t try to finish your interviewer’s sentences, don’t step on their words, and don’t start responding until they’ve finished their thoughts.  
  5. Acting Disinterested.This is the easiest way to get a big fat “no”! Don’t be mistaken ? you are one of many people up for the position, and your interviewer isn’t going to waste too much time on someone that doesn?t show interest in what they’ve got to offer. If you aren’t interested now, what’s going to make them think that you’ll be interested in the position when hired? You may be interviewing for something that you don’t actually want because your options are limited. Or, maybe you are interviewing to get the experience but don’t plan to take the position if offered. It can be challenging to muster enthusiasm for something you don’t actually want; but, do it anyway. People talk! 
  6. Badmouthing Former Employers.Who in the world would want to hire someone that talks s*** about the employers and companies that came before them? If you don’t have great things to say about your previous boss or job, don’t say anything or do your best to say it nicely. No one goes through life without experiencing a job or superior they didn’t like, but telling a potential employer how much you couldn’t stand them is only going to hurt your chances. They’ll wonder if they should expect the same treatment in the future.  
  7. Failing To Ask Questions. You will inevitably be asked if you have any questions. This may seem like a good time to say, “nope, I’m all set! Thanks for meeting with me!”, but that would be a bad look. Ask questions based on your research of the company and position to reestablish your interest in the job. Better yet, ask questions throughout the interview to make it feel like a genuine, engaged conversation. 
  8. Not Asking WhatToExpect Next. Don’t assume that after your interview, your interviewer will be meeting with the rest of the team to discuss your hire. Don’t assume that you will be hearing from them by the end of the week with an offer. Chances are the company is interviewing quite a few other people for the position. Each company follows different processes when it comes to hiring, and it isn’t uncommon to go weeks before hearing anything, whether good or bad. At the end of your interview, inquire about the next steps if the information hasn’t already been offered. Not only may you get insight that will ease your mind during the wait, but it will reinforce your interest.  
  9. Not Following Up.Within 24-48 hours of being interviewed, send a thank you note to everyone that you met with. Remember, they took time out of their busy work day to meet with you, so they deserve some recognition! Not only will it leave a good impression but it will keep you front of mind, as they review all of the candidates.   

Don’t jeopardize your chances of getting hired by making these simple mistakes! Stay tuned for Part 2!
