Online IT recruiting portal blog: everything about IT employment, employers and employees
IT Job US official blog that will cover interesting Information Technology trends, news and provide personal impressions about any subject. This blog won’t hold on to someone’s point of view. We have our opinion and will pass it here.
Most leads are trying hard to be good to the team: the better working relationship with the team is, the better is the boss in the top management’ eyes. It means the consistent work of Department, such team will better cope with difficult tasks. Though oftentimes good attitude, and especially different favors to the team is one-sided friendship. It happens more often if the lead is new in this position. Such boss will be totally unhappy with the work, he will have difficulties guiding his department, subordinates will cramp his style. We won’t controvert the fact that a lead usually is a person who was the best in his field: such employee sorts out complicated issues, understands the work and process structure, everyone can rely on him. Though there is always lack in top management knowledge and experience. We all have an idea of the best and fair management (from previous communication experience, be it former lead, parents, teacher etc.), but it’s not enough for guiding the team. Am I wrong?
It can be so though every lead should improve his management skills and keep professional qualification. Many managers commit multiple mistakes because of misunderstanding this factor that can lead to sorrowful results, for the lead in the first place.
The manager is often mistaken thinking that making something all alone is better and easier than explaining, training and bearing responsibility for someone’s failure. Why is it a mistake? Because the lead should achieve good results by effective team management but not being committee of one.
It often happens that colleague’s performance of a task doesn’t yield any outcome that makes us to alter the work and report to the superiors for all of that. We can find an example in any realm be it programing, project management, support or sales. E.g. the programmer has a task to develop a module for a CMS, new product or any framework. As a result he may have too many bugs in it and the module may not work as intended. The supervisor shouldn’t apply changes to the code and bring it to compliance for sure. Though some leads have some kind of fear to lose the position and some of them would carry out this work. And that is another mistake. The developer should be responsible for completed tasks and mistakes and be encouraged for good job and skills improvements. That’s why there is a supervisor who could evaluate the work. The lead making all the tasks all by himself act against sense that causes his overload and inefficiency of the whole Department. If there are subordinates in your Department they should work as well and get more complicated tasks as far as they improve their professional skills and. Who will do it but you?
If you’re a subordinate you also can influence on the whole process. It’s not worth resting on oars; you should be more persistent and take additional tasks so you could prove your competency. The more you do the more competence and opportunities you get (in salary and position). Even if you quit you will be able to show the new employer what you can. Less gab and more action.
Today I would like to talk about career fairs. Career fairs are held very often, where initially job seekers would find their employers and employers would acquire new staff. Does it always happen? Can a job seeker really take a job offer for granted?
The employer is a preconceived person as he/she is looking for an employee for the company and he will be responsible for his or her mistakes. When there is only one person waiting for an interview he can pay more attention to the person and there are more chances to get a job. There are much more candidates on job fair than job offers that’s why the employer is getting more critical in candidates selecting and relies on first look. Therefore to catch employer’s fancy you should be 100% prepared. Well we can understand employer: if you have 50 time management applications (or any other) to choose the best ones from I think you would decide between them according to the external features without paying attention to the essential functionality. The error rate is for sure high, for that reason you should at least provide valuable information about you or kindle employer’s interest. At a pinch you can just provide your resume or portfolio to remind about yourself later maybe.
From employer’s point of view it’s also not so easy to choose the best candidate. Though it’s a great opportunity to spend one day only and hold many mini interviews to hire new staff. It’s not free of charge though it’s a good way to prove your worth as a serious company. Easy riders usually don’t pay, they ask for money. Not every person seeming suitable will answer the criteria. Conduct a mini test to check if the person suits the position. And anyway take a resume to read it through later and make sure you were right or recognize you made a mistake.
Anyway job expo is a good opportunity to establish partnerships to sew up companies / candidates list for future employment or placement. Most people consider job fairs to be for blue collars only and not for geeks as there are too many jobs in Internet. Though if you know there will be a famous company there you should be there for sure.
And what do you think about job expos? Have you ever attended them? Have you gotten a job after a career fair? Vote in our opinion poll.
