Think about the last time you had a peak experience doing paid or volunteer work. Search your memory for an event where you felt like you were in the flow and you lost track of time because you were so immersed in the task at hand. You were working, but it didn't feel like work. Write down the things that stand out in your mind about this event or activity. What were you doing? Where were you? Who were you working with? Record anything you can remember, without editing the content. Then, put this away to review at a later date. After a few days have passed, take out the description you have written and pay attention to how you feel while reading it. Jot down all of the feelings that come up for you at the bottom of the page. Close your eyes and reflect upon the difference between how this job description makes you feel and how you feel while performing your usual work tasks. This exercise will help you learn more about your true purpose and is an important step on the path toward figuring out where you want to head with your life.
We are seeing an increase in group interviews as a hiring practice. Employers are conducting these to cut down on the amount of time involved in searching for someone to fill an open slot. If you are asked to participate in a group interview, prepare as you would for any other interview. Dress appropriately, be on time, be courteous to everyone you meet (yes, even your competition), research the company and the position, prepare answers to interview questions and prepare some really good questions to ask the interviewer. You want to show that you are prepared, have excellent communication & interpersonal skills and would be a great asset to the employer's team.
Take a few moments to write down all of the "unfinished business" that is weighing you down. Include things like clutter on the kitchen counter, phone calls left unmade, dust on the blinds that bothers you every time you open them, the friend who is always in crisis and wears you out. All of these things take up space in your life that drags you down. Just imagine how much better your days would flow if you could eliminate all of these items from your mind! It would feel like a breath of fresh air coming through an open window on a sunny spring day! You can clear this clutter from your life. The first step is to identify it. The next step is to create a systematic plan of attack. Create Your Future can help!
