Finally, after weeks and weeks of painstaking hours of work, learning how to use more of WordPress.org’s tools, namely widgets and plugins, I have launched my all singing, all dancing, newly designed beatredundancyblues.com site.

Motivatingdaily - Your source for daily motivation

My job often requires being up pretty early or working pretty late. While this fact can be tiresome, I always look forward to new tasks and am generally more fit on work mornings, because I am grateful for my job and like the work I do, a lot.

It is important to chose a job that motivates you.As long as you have to motivate yourself to get the job done, you have clearly chosen the wrong job (Or you are in a situation where you have to get over some obstacles in order to reach your dream job, never mind that)

Find a job that you do with passion and enthusiasm, a job that motivates you to get up early, work hard, work long hours and generally put a lot of good effort into, and you have made great progress on your path to happiness.

Choose a job you…

Turning Your Hobby Into A Business

Hi Everyone

My apologies for not blogging for a while. I have been very poorly with a chest infection and virus and not had the strength to even write. As a writer, it has been very difficult for me not to be able to practice my craft for a while .

Even though I am still not 100% better, I felt I had to share this inspirational blog post about turning your hobby into a business, courtesy of Carolyn Trafford from reflectionscoachingblog.wordpress.com

Turning Your Hobby Into A Business.

I am turning my writing website quirkybooks.net into an e-Book store later this year. Amongst the books available, will be ones to help you to get back into work. If I can turn my passion into my dream job, then so can you.

Stay positive

C is for Confidence A-Z of Redundancy

Hi Everyone

It’s important whilst redundant, that when applying for jobs and going for interviews, you come across as a confident person.

Confident in:

  • Yourself
  • Your character
  • Your previous job roles
  • Your skills
  • Your experience
  • Your abilities

In interviews, you need to ensure you are displaying open and positive body language:

  • No crossed arms
  • No fists made
  • No stern looks
  • No leering

You should:

  • Smile – Creates warmth and approachability
  • Have arms by your side or on your lap with palms facing upwards – Shows openness and friendliness
  • Try to relax as much as possible – Will put the interviewer at ease

When you try to relax, pay close attention to your facial muscles, are they stiff and tight or at ease? What are your shoulders doing, are they hunched over or upright? You need to be constantly thinking about being calm and a good way to feel calm is to picture a time when you felt relaxed, maybe talking to a friend, then think of how your body felt at that moment and try to replicate it. This is hard but with practice can feel more natural and help you to get the job. If you are calm, this should make your interviewer feel calm and therefore you will appeal to them.

Remember when you speak, you are talking to a potential boss, so don’t feel so relaxed that you start talking to your  prospective employer like he is your mate in the pub as this would not be well accepted and you are not likely to get the job.

In interviews:

  • Maintain eye-contact but without staring – This can take several practices before getting it right

You have to be confident that your character (personality) will fit the job. For example, if you are a quiet person and don’t like being in crowds, then working in a pub would most likely not suit your personality. If you are a bubbly and chatty person and that’s what the job requires, you need to be confident enough to show this at your interview.

You need to be confident when talking about your previous job roles. Talk up your achievements and don’t mention negatives. If the interviewer asks you questions like – “What was your biggest obstacle in your last role and how did you overcome it?” Then you need to be honest from the employer’s perspective but change the negatives into a positive. For example, if you had a customer who was unhappy with the shoes they had bought but it was more about the comfort of the shoes rather than a manufacturing fault and company policy was not to refund just on a comfort issue as you can’t resell the shoes and the company loses money. You could say that in order to maintain good relations, you decided to exchange the shoes as a gesture of good will. You need to always add a positive outcome – The customer was happy and became a weekly regular.

Whenever you talk about your skills, experience and abilities. You need to talk about them in a positive manner with the interviewer and give examples of when you have used them in your past job roles to good effect and created a positive impact on the businesses you were working for. Then go on to say how you could use those in your new role for which you are being interviewed.

Always remember, if you are confident that you can do the job, then the prospective employer will be confident that you are suitable to work for them.

Stay positive
