EmploymentScape Chief Executive Officer, Harrison Barnes discusses the role of positivity in your work life. Harrison believes that if you can believe in something it is quite possible that you can achieve it. Our expectations of ourselves all start in our minds. We have to think positively of ourselves to do well.
You have to believe in yourself. The happiest people and the most successful people think positive. You need to believe religiously in your abilities, your strengths, and the strength of the market.
Do not listen to negative news about the market. Do not surround yourself with negative people at the office. You need to be in a positive space. This is where the jobs, money, and happiness are.
EmploymentScape Chief Executive Officer, Harrison Barnes discusses the power of commitment. It is important to commit to a single employer or to anything for that matter. Not being committed to your career can have enormous ramifications.
Harrison believes that commitment is key to any form of success. You should not do any sort of job that your heart is not in and that you cannot be committed to. Without a strong commitment you will not have the success you desire.
It pays to be committed not only to your employer, but to your career. Your commitment will come out in everything you do, and you will shine
EmploymentScape Chief Executive Officer, Harrison Barnes talks about the difference between people who survive in recessions, and those who end up being cut.
When a recession is at hand, or when an industry is experiencing a contraction, companies very quickly become interested in saving as much money as possible. They look around to see who is working hard and adding value and who is not.
In your job, you need to ensure that you are providing as much value as possible. If you see waste occurring in your job and you know the work you are doing can be done in a more efficient way, you need to point this out to your superiors.
People who do not put in extra effort, or who cause lots of waste in the company, may find they are out of a job when a recession or restructuring hits. You need to ensure that you are always creating value and are creating far more value than you are worth.
EmploymentScape Chief Executive Officer, Harrison Barnes discusses the choices that life offers us. We can choose to be average, very much like the people around us and doing just what society wants us to do. Or, we could be radically different. We could defy the trend, choosing not to play by the rules and simply doing things in a way that makes sense to us.
The same philosophy can also be applied to your job search. Any innovation and deviation from the accepted norm, especially in a challenging economic environment, could prove to be a tremendously successful strategy. When you follow your heart and do what you want to do, everything changes.
Harrison believes that people who stepped out of the rat race and did exactly what they wanted to do with their lives found not only happiness, but great success.
EmploymentScape Chief Executive Officer, Harrison Barnes, as he talks about the role of communication in getting a job and keeping it.
Harrison believes that communicating our value is something we all must do to get jobs and also to keep our jobs. One of the biggest mistakes people make when interviewing for jobs (or in their current jobs) is failing to communicate their value frequently and in detail. It’s extremely important that you communicate with your company and supervisors at all times.
The company you work for, or want to work for, cannot possibly know the multitude of ways in which you can contribute. You need to make the people around you aware of who you are and what you can do.
EmploymentScape Chief Executive Officer, Harrison Barnes talks about the need to broadcast your value constantly in your job.
According to Harrison, you should be very clear about the value that you are providing and ensure that your bosses are aware of what you are doing. Your supervisor (or the person who is hiring you) wants to know the value you are bringing to the organization. Do your best to communicate your value to those around you at all times.
The best way for doing this, he suggests, is to work behind the scenes and making sure that every work you do reaches your boss. You need to continuously demonstrate passion for your work. At workplace, you should be able to communicate in terms of the other person’s interest in order to get hired or secure your job.
EmploymentScape Chief Executive Officer, Harrison Barnes talks about the need to get proactive with your career. Harrison has dedicated his career to showing people how to be proactive in their job searches.
The first thing you can do to be proactive is make sure that you are in fact seeing all of the job openings that are out there. Not seeing every job in the market would be a huge mistake. Further, you need to apply for every single job you can find, even if it looks like it may be a smaller possibility.
Harrison also will talk about targeted mailing, one of the most effective ways to get a job. This proactive method of going after the employers is most likely to get you the sort of job you are seeking.
EmploymentScape Chief Executive Officer, Harrison Barnes talks about problems one could face while planning to relocate for better job options.
Many areas of the United States have been devastated by the economy, and there are fewer jobs available in those areas. You don’t have an option but to relocate. Harrison believes that relocating for better job options to areas where your skills are in demand is extremely important. However, one needs to keep certain points in mind while applying for such jobs.
Employers generally prefer people with a connection to the area to ensure greater stability. Hence it is advisable to show some sort of connection to the area you are relocating to. Harrison also cautions against conveying to an employer that you cannot get a job where you live. No one wants losers. To project yourself as a winner, Harrison believes, you should convey that you are relocating for personal long-term growth objectives.
