Title: Conducting a Summer Job search Why do you want a job? Ar


1
Conducting a Summer Job search
2
Why do you want a job?
  • Are you using the job to get money to pay for
    school?
  • Are you using the job to get career related
    experience?
  • Are you using the job to get networking contacts?

3
Decide on what you want to do?
  • Are you interested in working with kids?
  • How about working on the beach, at a park, in
    the mountains, or at another outdoor job?
  • Are you interested in retail or food services?
  • How about working in tourism?
  • You need to research the needs of the local
    economy where you will be spending your summer.

4
Quick Tips on conducting a summer job search
  • 1. Examine the economic market Your search for
    summer work should never be done in a vacuum.
    Keep yourself informed about which fields and
    companies will be hiring.
  • 2. Start early January is not too early to
    begin looking time is needed to reflect, plan,
    and seek assistance.
  • 3. Be Realistic - If you are in your first or
    second year, there are certain jobs in your field
    that you may not be as qualified for as students
    in more senior years. Look for summer jobs that
    will allow you to develop transferable skills.
  • 4. Find people who can help you they may be in
    human resources or they may be hiring managers.
    More often than not, they will be your friends,
    family, neighbours, or professors people you
    know who know someone you can contact about
    employment.
  • 5. Be Creative Dont be afraid to accept jobs
    in unrelated fields where you can broaden your
    networking contacts or gain skills, and use it as
    a launching pad. Look at combining two part-time
    jobs one job can earn you money, while the
    other gives you the work or volunteer experience
    you really want.
  • 6. Visit the Centre for Career Education Speak
    with the employment advisor, or career
    development coordinator about developing your
    resume, job search or interview skills. Ask
    about available workshops, or other online
    resources that can help you with your job search
    preparation.

5
What do you have to offer?
  • There are 2 key questions that employers want to
    know the answers to (1) How can you help me?
    and, (2) Why You?
  •  
  • It is your job as a potential employee to educate
    the employer. Employers know nothing about you,
    and they are not going to know what you can do or
    how you can help unless you tell them directly.

6
What do I have to offer?
  • You must be able to showcase to the employer your
    knowledge, skills, and experience and describe
    and demonstrate how you can apply these tools in
    the particular position that you are applying
    for, which will assist the employer in
    achievement of their goals.
  • You have to take an inventory of your strengths
    (your knowledge, skills, and experience). These
    are the tools that you have that you can use to
    help an employer achieve their goals.

7
Identifying Key Skills You have to identify
your skills prior to writing your resume
CATEGORY OF SKILL SUB SKILLS WHERE DID I GET THE KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS, AND EXPERIENCE? HOW DID I USE IT? HOW CAN I USE IT IN THE JOB I AM APPLYING FOR? MAJOR ACHIEVEMENTS WHERE WILL I SHOW IT RESUME, COVER LETTER, INTERVIEW
Counseling Mediation Nursing practicum Conducted intake interviews with at risk families. Identified key motivators contributing to poor decision making and actions relating to personal health. Able to develop mutual agreement and action plan for improved health practices. Able to conduct intake interviews, determine key issues and problems, mediate resolution, and make recommendations to develop better personal choices and practices Reduced familys dependency on health care system. Resume, highlight in cover letter, explain in interview
Budgeting Financial Analysis Nursing practicum Examined clinics financial accounts and records. Assisted clinic in developing sound financial management practices Able to set up financial controls and procedures Assisted clinic in paying bills on time and spending within budget Resume, Interview
8
Develop an industry specific resume
  • Do up an industry specific resume highlighting
    your skills and targeted towards the position you
    are applying for.
  •  
  • The most common approach used by people seeking
    employment is to solicit potential employers with
    a traditional resume. The general theme of most
    resumes is "Here's what I did yesterday."
  •  
  • To be effective in the 21st Century workplace,
    the theme has to be "Here's how I can help you
    today." Your communication has to be very focused
    on employer needs and how you can help them. What
    can you do for me today? That's what decision
    makers are most interested in. Not what your
    title was in your last job or what you were
    doing.

9
Types of Resumes
There are several types of resumes Skills based,
Chronological, Functional, Accomplishments
based Skills Based resumes highlight and
demonstrate key skills appropriate to the job
being applied for. Chronological resumes are
used to demonstrate experience in a career field
one wants to enter into or remain in.
Functional resumes are combined skills
based/chronological resumes. Accomplishment
Resumes are chronological resumes highlighting
results / outcomes from past experience
10
Formatting a Resume
  • Font Arial or Times New Roman
  • Font size Minimum 10 Maximum 12 (NOTE Keep
    same font and same font size throughout resume)
  • Length Minimum one page. Maximum two pages (no
    more!) on 8 ½ x 11 paper.

  • Border Maximum 1 inch / Minimum ½ inch
  • Format Keep consistent throughout resume
