What to expect at an Assessment Center?

An assessment center in legal practice is a good place where budding lawyers can get their handle on the new profession out there. They can see whether they have the competency to handle certain jobs or tasks. They can test out how good they are written and oral communication too. They will also be tested on their procedural and legal know-how, and they need to be able to really use this information in real settings too, and the assessment center will test their ability to really put their talent and know-how to use. An assessment center, like the name says, assesses lawyers’ abilities to perform certain tasks.

You usually go through a lot of rigamarole when you first get inside. You will have to sit through a face-to-face interview, and the interviewer may be a lawyer and a person from human resources. Sometimes, the interview may be with a partner of the law firm, and he will judge certain skills like communication, teamwork, and problem-solving. You will also sometimes have a legal knowledge exercise to test your understanding of certain things. You will also have a report on your writing activity. You will also have some psychometric, group, and intelligence tests. These are all designed to see what kind of lawyer you are. They are designed to see what kind of lawyer you can be.

Your potential employer may invite you to an assessment center to see how well you perform on certain things. You need to get information ahead of time from this employer on what will be tested at the assessment center. This will help you know whether you should study for something or not.

Body language and tone of voice – not words – are our most powerful assessment tools.

You need to have all your documents prepared before you go in. You need to have a positive mental attitude. You need to know what to do when the time comes. You have to demonstrate proficiency from stage one to the end. You have to demonstrate from the initial stages all the way through.

Make sure you perform well throughout the day. You will be tested throughout the day from the very beginning to the end of the day. You need to know what is going to be tested, and you need to be prepared for it. There is no excuse for showing up and not knowing what to do. You don’t want to go into it and just have no idea on what to work on there.

You will be asked a series of questions initially. You need to be prepared to answer these. It is wise to gather as much information on your potential employer as possible. You don’t want to have to be left in the dark when they ask you specific questions about their employer and why you selected them. You should be able to answer their questions fairly and modestly. Don’t hold back anything, but also watch your speech. You need to have a great understanding of the company you are about to work for and be prepared to answer all their questions.

How to Fight Uncertainty in the Job Market

A job search can absolutely destroy self-confidence when doors seem to be closing everywhere you turn. You begin to feel uncertainty creep in, but it is something that you must fight. The job market is a tough place to be because there are only a few jobs but hundreds of applicants. There are things that you can do to fight uncertainty in order to continue the job search for the perfect position. So, what to do when feeling uncertain?

Renew Stamina

It takes a lot of stamina to hunt for a job. Take a breath every now and then to assure that you will not become too absorbed in the search. When people absorb themselves so much into one thing, it can overtake the senses and impair judgment. Search as much as possible, but do not apply to every available job if it is likely something that you do not want to do. Search for a new job every other day instead of everyday to take a breather in between. This helps you stay far more focused on things and keeps uncertainty from creeping into the scenario.

Preparedness

Prepare each day for the job search. Plan activities the night before so that it does not become too overwhelming. For instance, decide the night before whether you will search for jobs online or visit different places of business to submit applications. Take a day or two to look over the resume to make certain everything is in order. The resume is the first impression that many places of employment have of potential employees. Prepare well for interviews as well. All of these activities will help ease the uncertainty of job searching.

Live life for the moment because everything else is uncertain!

Louis Tomlinson

Perspective

Keep everything in perspective. There are only so many things that you can do in order to get the job. Once it is out of your control it is time to let go and relax. It is alright to contact companies where you have submitted resumes and applications. In fact, that is encouraged. What you should not do is worry obsessively over whether you got the job. Never put all your eggs in one basket. It is rare that a job is captured when only submitting one application or resume. Do not wait for a call from one place. Submit many applications and resumes so the choices are varied. Waiting on one particular place to contact you sets yourself up for a fight with uncertainty.

Insecurities are readily available during a job search. There are many “what if’s” that you can ask yourself. Do not overburden your senses to the point that you cannot discern from what is and what is not in your control. Companies that are looking for employees have a difficult job because they are choosing from the most elite candidates available. They will hire someone for the position. Since they have so many choices, there is a huge chance that there will be some jobs you will not get. That is when it is time to dig in your heels and become more determined.

Google: The Most Interesting Company for Students

Finding a job can be a difficult task, especially in today’s economy. However, finding the right job seems almost like an impossibility. Add that preponderance to be a student just entering the workforce and fresh into the career world and it may seem as if getting a job, any job will likely ever happen.

Do not lose hope just yet, though. With up and coming companies like Google, the possibilities are opening up and will be offered to individuals with fresh ideas and cutting-edge abilities. With Google and the job search, knowing what is available and homing in on what the company is looking for in employees just might land you a position with one of the most interesting companies on the market.

Positions

Google basically breaks down its available positions into three teams. We will call them the Builders, the Sellers, and the Doers. Within each of these teams there are a variety of jobs and assignments completed.

The Builders are those individuals involved in engineering, operations and support, product management, and technical client-facing. Engineers create the technology that’s fueling the development now and for the future. Operations and support staff are involved in supportive internet technology development and usage. Product management personal manage the process of creating, integrating, and launching new products. And, those in technical client-facing build the bridge that connects Google and technology itself.

The Sellers includes the innovators behind retail and business management within the company, including positions in sales and account management, product and customer support, partnerships, and sales operations. Each of the individuals in this team is directly responsible for the success of company interaction, product innovation, business expansion, and smooth operation, respectively.

The Doers encompass possibly the most diverse team of Googlers, ranging from business strategists to real estate and workplace servicers. Yet, much like the name suggests, without the Doers in the company, little would actually be accomplished. This team is a fine team of people comprised of positions in administration, finance, marketing and communications, legal and public policy, people operations, and others. Taking on the grit of the Google workforce, this team maintains the atmosphere and environment presented at the company as well as brings new ideas to the table for business practices and discipline.

Whether it’s Google or Apple or free software, we’ve got some fantastic competitors and it keeps us on our toes.

Aside from even these opportunities, though, Google offers specific prospects for student involvement. Google offers internships for current students in the technical field and even gives precedence to recent technical graduates. And, in the sales, general, and administrative departments, the company offers student internships as well as career paths to those working on higher education degrees.

Requirements

As Google is such an innovative company, the application and acceptance process is a rigorous path to reflect the company’s high expectations. With Google, the process is comprised of six steps that offer the company ample opportunity to get to know its candidates.

So, at Google it is about standing out in the crowd, about letting people get to know you as an individual and sharing innovative ideas. Presenting yourself as a “go-getter” is a must, so being proactive about the application and interview process is crucial. Whether just entering the field or just looking for a career move, Google is worth considering. I mean, it is the most interesting company in business today…

Is Nursery at Work a Good Thing?

Just like any supposedly cure-all for a social problem, on-site nursery for employees does not necessarily always work. It does, however, solve some problems for both employers and employees. Depending on the individual employers and employees involved, an onsite child care facility may be an answer that solves many problems associated with an out of balance work-family balance.

On-site day care reduces anxiety many parents have about putting their children in child care centers where they are not nearby. Being able to visit during lunch hours or breaks can be a significant relief to a parent. Nursing mothers are also able to return to work sooner and still be close to their infants. On-site nurseries are also often licensed by a governmental authority, which further eases parents’ worries that their children are not receiving age-appropriate care and safe supervision.

Employers also benefit from on-site nurseries in many cases. While it is not feasible or practical in all cases, those employers who do offer child care at work have typically seen a significant reduction in the amount of money they spend on labor each year. In the book Kids at Work: The Value of Employer-Sponsored On-Site Child Care Centers by Rachel Connelly, Deborah S. DeGraff, and Rachel A. Willis, two companies included in an approximately 1,000-strong employee survey that offered on-site nursery saved $150,000 and $250,000 per year in wages.

Moreover, employers with on-site nursery report reduced absenteeism and turnover. They are also able to recruit and retain workers they may not have otherwise been able to entice to work for them.

The most important part of education is proper training in the nursery.

Furthermore, employees were very willing to help subsidize childcare costs out of their paychecks, even those without children. They understood that on-site nursery would improve morale and productivity among workers with children. That would make the work environment generally more enjoyable for everyone. Furthermore, they were willing to help pay for on-site child care because they liked that the employer was willing to help its employees. Workers were willing to pay between $125 and $225 per year, on average, to help pay for work site child care.

On the other hand, it is true that in American society, about 27 percent of women work in blue collar jobs, and many of their employers would not consider on-site child care. Also, child care responsibilities in American society typically fall to women. Employers are also not offering health care services as often as they used to. Asking them to provide child care on-site is not likely to happen.

Perhaps a better alternative would be to provide longer maternity and paternity leave for parents. Flexible work schedules would also be a good option for many employers compared to providing on-site nursery. Nursery workers cannot take children to the doctor or care for them when they are ill, and school-aged children still require care between 3 and 6 p.m.

So, depending on a particular employer’s situation and the attitudes and financial situations of the people it hires, on-site child care may offer a good solution to labor problems like absenteeism and tardiness. Still, other employers may find similar benefits in more flexible work schedules and paid leave for both male and female new parents.
