On the job front: Why promise what you can’t deliver?

Published

on

Read Time: 4 minutes

With the number of jobless persons increasing by the day, unemployment inevitably becomes a major poll issue. Every political party has to promise ‘jobs’ to the youth to win their votes. If the Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) promised, but failed, to provide 10 crore jobs, besides other lollipops, to win the parliamentary elections in 2013, the Congress used the same stick to beat the BJP in the recent Assembly elections in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. It was easier, however, for the new chief ministers to implement the promise to waive farm loans than to tackle unemployment. All MP Chief Minister Kamal Nath could do was to order reservation of 70 percent jobs in the state to its residents and blame their unemployment on migrants from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.

Nath is not the first leader to have done that. Similar reservations of up to 80 and 90 percent for locals have been announced earlier by BJP governments in UP, Gujarat, etc., but to no avail. Violent attacks on Bihari and other north Indian migrants in Mumbai by the Shiv Sena and the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (NNS) for low availability of jobs to the ‘locals’ is well-known and so is their demand for the reservation of jobs for the ‘locals’.  But, such reservations do not create jobs.

Unemployment, in fact, has been a global problem for quite some time. As former Reserve Bank governor Raghuram Rajan recently said in an interview, rampant joblessness, caused by the “tech revolution”, is mainly responsible for the “majoritarian” backlash in the US and other countries, including India.

The rate of economic growth in India has not created the required number of jobs because this growth has been by and large capital-intensive. The growth has been more in the tertiary than in the industrial sector. The successful start-ups, too, have been more in the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG), e-retail trading, Infotech and sunrise industries like that of solar panels, etc, that do not create a large enough number of jobs. These sectors create jobs for either Infotech-trained IIT graduates and post-graduates or some scooter-driving delivery boys, etc. They do not create any jobs for the large armies of arts, commerce and science graduates turned out by our universities.

The story is no different in medium and small industries. These, too, are capital-intensive and need more digital technology than men to operate and make profits. All these add to the growth level, but do not provide jobs. The industrialists and entrepreneurs are conscious of this and appreciate the problem of jobs, but explain that robotics and digital technology is more accurate and efficient and less risky as well as less costly than human labor.

The number of unemployed youth, therefore, continues to increase. Political leaders may promise jobs but there is no way they can provide these in the required numbers. The unemployed youth, meanwhile, turn to crime. They are easy prey to all kinds of extremist social and political agitations, too. It is well-known that the Khalistan movement in Punjab fed largely on the jobless graduates.

The narrative will not change with the coming of the Congress to power. The political class, at best, can blame job-loss upon migrants and talk of reservation for locals. What makes matters worse for the jobless in India is that while the American and European jobless have a social security net to fall back upon, there is no such net in this country. The political class in developing countries like India, therefore, would do well to promise and work to provide social security (cash doles or monthly unemployment allowance) to the jobless and ask them to do some voluntary social service in lieu thereof. The funds for this social security could be met by imposing a cess on the highest two slabs of income tax.

In the long term, however, people must seek and work for a paradigm shift in their socio-economic organisation by gradually withdrawing from the productive activity and leaving it to information technology and artificial intelligence (AI) and instead concentrate on educational and cultural development to improve the quality of life and raise the cultural and living standards by opening more educational and cultural institutions and concentrating on higher education, research, knowledge, art and cultural development.

There is no easy option.

How to show confidence during interview?

Published

on

By


Read Time: 6 minutes

It’s no secret that employers like to hire people who are confident in their interviews.

But how do they judge this? And what are the best ways to show confidence in an interview so you can get hired faster?

Here are the best ways to accomplish this…

1. Eye contact
Practice keeping good eye contact while listening, and equally important- while speaking.

There’s nothing more important than eye contact when it comes to showing confidence, and it’s extremely noticeable if you’re staring down or to the side when you talk.

2. Body positioning:
Once you’ve made a habit of maintaining eye contact, it’s time to think about your body positions.

You want to stand and sit in open positions – arms by your sides, not crossed. Make your body take up a lot of space, rather than making yourself smaller. This is how to seem confident.

3. Don’t fidget
Be still, and make controlled, calculated movements. Don’t hold a pen or paper and fidget constantly. Be careful not to tap your hands or feet either.

It’s okay to be animated and talk with your hands. It’s probably even a good thing in most interviews to show enthusiasm. But don’t move your hands around when you should be listening!

4. Smile and try to enjoy the process:
Confident people smile. Nervous people grimace or wrinkle their face up and look super serious or distracted.

So along with making eye contact as we discussed earlier… smile and try to hold relaxed, calm facial expressions.

It’s okay to show you’re thinking about an interview answer or deciding what to say, but you shouldn’t constantly look like you’re strained and having a miserable time.

5. Practice your handshake:
Nothing’s worse than a limp handshake. It shows a lack of experience in interviews and a lack of confidence.

So practice with friends or family at home. Get it firm but not too aggressive/strong. You need to find a good balance.

6. Talk slowly:
Don’t blurt out answers and don’t rush yourself. Confident people take their time, and aren’t afraid to say, “that’s a great question, let me think for a second…”

Once you blurt out an answer in your interview, you can’t get it back. So never be afraid to pause.

Also, don’t be afraid to ask them to clarify the question if you’re not sure. This is MUCH better than just guessing or “winging it” and blurting out a bad answer before you understand the situation.

7. Interview THEM:
Want to show confidence in your interview? Act like you have a lot of opportunities and are picky and selective about where you go next in your career. This is how the top job seekers treat their job hunt.

You’re not looking for any job, or the first job that’ll hire you. You’re looking for the right job.

If you take this mindset, you’ll seem much more appealing to them.

To pull this off, you need to ask great questions throughout the interview.

You’re interviewing them while they’re interviewing you.

Don’t be arrogant. You still need to sell yourself and impress them. But you’ll definitely seem more confident if you act like you’re weighing numerous opportunities and that you’re focused on finding the correct fit, not just any job.

You don’t have to lie to do this either. If you’re just starting your job search and they ask whether you’ve had other interviews, or how things are going, you can say:

“I just started my job search very recently. I’m just beginning to have phone conversations for the most part. It’s going well but it’s still very early in the process.”

That sounds a lot better than, “You’re the only company who I’ve met face-to-face.”

8. Don’t be desperate:
Don’t be a push-over. Don’t give references on a first phone interview. No top-level job seeker would do this. Are you going to let every company who does a phone interview with you call your references? That’s crazy.

Act like you’re in-demand, and if something doesn’t seem right… say so!

I’m not saying you should look for confrontations. Be respectful and work with them. Be willing to be flexible. But don’t bend over backward at every request (unfortunately employers make some pretty ridiculous, demanding requests sometimes. And I can tell you the top job seekers… the most confident ones… tell them “no” when necessary).

Usually, it won’t come to that, and it just comes down to small interactions…

If you can’t make a certain interview date they asked you about, tell them and propose a new date.

If they have a few requirements or policies that you’re not 100% comfortable with or aren’t clear on, ask them. Don’t be afraid to speak up and ask questions about the process.

Don’t just say “yes, okay” to everything they tell you. You have just as much control of the process as they do IF you can get this mindset down! There’s one of you, and MANY jobs out there. Act like it.

9. Listen, don’t wait to talk:
When you’re nervous you tend to plan what you’ll say and miss an opportunity to bond with the hiring manager. Focus on listening.

If they make a joke, you want to catch it and laugh. If you’re too busy thinking about what to say next, you’re going to mess this up and seem awkward and tense.

So actually listen, and then pause and think about how to respond SLOWLY.

Don’t sit there planning your responses and waiting for your turn talk.

10. Know what you want in a job:
If they ask “why did you apply for this position?”… or “why do you want this job?” you need a good answer. They aren’t going to hire someone who doesn’t seem to care about what type of job they get.

The most confident job seekers know exactly what they want, and can explain it clearly and quickly.

Confidence Gets You Hired!
Showing confidence in interviews will help you make a better first impression and be more memorable so you can get more job offers.

You’ll also start to FEEL more confident if you use these steps in your interviews. So it’s a win-win. You’ll be more relaxed and be able to give much better answers.

1. Don’t call someone more than twice continuously. If they don’t pick up your call that means they have something more important to attend to.

2. Return money that you have borrowed even before the other person remembers lending it to you. It shows your integrity and character. Same goes with umbrellas, pens and lunch boxes.

3. Never order the expensive dish on the menu when someone is treating you for lunch/dinner. If possible ask them to order their choice of food for you.

4. Don’t ask awkward questions like ‘Oh so you aren’t married yet?’ Or Why didn’t you buy a house?’ For god’s sake, it isn’t your problem.

5. Always open the door for the person coming behind you. Doesn’t matter if it is a guy or a girl. You don’t grow small by treating someone well in public.

6. If you take a taxi with a friend, and he/she pays now, you pay next time.

7. Respect different political opinions.

8. Never interrupt people talking.

9. If you tease someone, and they don’t seem to enjoy it, stop it and never do it again.

10. Say “thank you” when someone is helping you.

11. Praise publicly. Criticize privately.

12. There’s almost never a reason to comment on someone’s weight. Just say, “You look fantastic.” If they want to talk about losing weight, they will.

13. When someone shows you a photo on their phone, don’t swipe left or right. You never know what’s next.

14. If a colleague tells you they have a doctors appointment, don’t ask what it’s for, just say hope you’re ok. If they want to talk about it they will and you don’t put them in the uncomfortable position of having to tell you their personal illness.

15. Treat the cleaner with the same respect as the CEO. Nobody is impressed at how rudely you can treat someone below you but people will notice if you treat them with respect.

16. If a person is speaking directly to you, staring at your phone is rude.

17. Never give advice until you’re asked

7th pay commission: While the Central government staff is still hopeful of a pay hike and an increase in fitmrnt factor. The employees of Indian Railways got good news. According to a ZeeBiz report, the Indian Railways has decided to more than double the running allowance of its guards, loco pilots, and assistant loco pilots, thereby accepting a long-pending demand of employees’ unions.

The latest move would increase Railways’ annual financial burden of allowances by Rs 1,225 crore and enhance operating ratio by 2.5 percent, the report stated citing sources.

“The running staff had been demanding the increase for the past four years. While the allowances for other employees had been increased on July 1, 2017, their hike was pending. This is a new year gift from the railways to its staff. However, this will be a huge burden on railways as it will increase the operating ratio by around 2.5 percent,” said the source.

Meanwhile, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has asked all head of departments and assistant commissioners to submit rationalized duty hours of employees working under them to the general administration department. The data will be used for negotiations with unions regarding the implementation of the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission. The civic administration is likely to meet the unions next week.

While the state has already implemented the recommendation and employees will receive a pay increase from February, the BMC administration is waiting for directions on the same.

Another good news announced for professors and teachers of every state as ahead of 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the Narendra Modi government has announced a pay hike.

The academic staff will get the benefits of the 7th Pay Commission with effect from January 1, 2016.

Not only the teachers, the central government has said that the other staff members of universities and colleges will also get a new pay scale. President of Lucknow University Associated College Teachers Association (LUACTA), Manoj Pandey told Zeebiz.com that implementation of the 7th pay commission will increase the salaries by about Rs 40,000 at professor level while those at the lower level will get a hike up to Rs 7,000 per month

7th pay commission: Big win for these employees as government agrees for pay revision

7th pay commission: Good news for BSNL employees as central government agrees to fulfil many demands including revision of pay and pension. In a circular dated 13th December 2018, the All Unions and Associations of BSNL (AUAB) said the decisions were made in a meeting with the Department of Telecom (DoT) and Minister of State for Telecommunication Manoj Sinha.
The minister said that DoT had already written to the Ministry of Finance, with a positive recommendation, to solve this issue. A favourable reply is awaited from the Finance Ministry, after which this problem will be settled.
According to the circular, DoT had agreed to the demand to de-link the pension revision of BSNL retirees, from the Pay Revision of the serving employees. AUAB had taken the stand that Pension Revision is no way linked with Pay revision or the affordability of BSNL and it is finally accepted by DoT.
The breakthrough will strengthen the employees’ demand for Pay Revision with full 15% fitment.
DoT had already prepared the Cabinet Note for allotting 4G spectrum to BSNL, and immediately after the notice was issued for indefinite strike, it was sent for Inter-Ministerial Consultation.
Earlier, BSNL employee unions of BSNL decided to defer their indefinite strike to December 10 if they fail to resolve issues in the proposed meeting with Telecom Minister Manoj Sinha.
BSNL unions have been demanding allocation of 4G spectrum to the public sector firm so that it is able to compete in the market and keep up the market share.
The employees are also demanding wage revision as per recommendations of 2nd and 3rd pay revision committee.

67 thousands posts of constables opened with matriculation as educational requirement!

Published

Read Time: 4 minutes

As the national elections are nearing the government at the centre has really become serious to an extent on employment front. There is indeed a good news for the matric pass young men of the country as the Subordinate Services Commission has announced appointment for 67 thousand posts of constables in paramilitary forces of the country viz Border Security Force, Central Industrial Security Force, SSB, Indo Tibet Police Force etc.

The notification in this regard is likely to be issued shortly. The minimum basic qualification required for appearing in the written and physical examination is merely matriculation passed. Both the aspiring boys and girls can apply for the said posts.

There have been dearth of police personels in these para military forces since long dealing with law and order situation, in counter insurgency operations at the porous Indo Pak borders, in strife torn Kashmir, at domestic and international airports, metro rail corporations, important government buildings and scientific installations and to counter the riotous situation in various parts of the country.

When the BJP led NDA government assumed power at the centre it promised to give two crore jobs to the youngsters but on the employment generation front things seem to be quite awry. The Delhi Police and various state police forces are already running short of constables and lower rung police officials to counter and control the increasing trend of law lessness in various states of the country as majority of the police force is involved in the VIP and VVIP security.

There was a time when government at the centre and the states used to employ good number of youngsters in government offices as clerks, typists and stenographers and in the lower rung as well but it has been witnessed that during the last two decades or so the government sector has witnessed dearth in such appointments as a new system of contractual appointments have come into force where the salaries are too low in commensurate of sky rocketting inflation and there is no job securityas well.

In majority of the cases the retired employees are re hired at a meagre salary thus killing the chances of the new young educated appointees. This is really a very distressing trend. The employment, health, agrarian and the lower and medium business sector of the country is in quite disarray and doldrums.

Majority of the qualified and skilled young men after completing their graduation and post graduation in rural and semi urban sectors are either sitting idle at home for want of proper jobs or are constrained to serve in the private sector with meagre insecured jobs for longer hours thus being exploited to the hilt.

The government of the day should revise its employment generation policy and open maximum number of new jobs in the government sector to fullfil its pre election promises and bring to end the increasing frustration amongst the educated young people who are running from pillar to posts for want of employment but of no avail.

The employment exchanges established by the government in various parts of the country are also serving no suitable and constructive purpose as there are literally no or negligible number of jobs in government departments of the centre and states.

While on the one hand the government servants are retiring at the fast pace while on the other hand there are no vacancies to fill the back log or the vacancies existing out of these retirements.

The incumbent government should seriously give a rethinking on this front and create jobs for the skilled and educated young aspirants forthwith.

ABOVE is the picture of unemployed youth going in an over crowded train risking their lives even on its rooftop to appear in the state police force recruitment exam few months ago in Jaipur. One can have the idea: how enormous is the unemployment problem in the country?

Onboarding is NOT Orientation – How to Improve the New Employee Experience?

Published

on


Read Time: 4 minutes

Companies seeking the path to success in this highly competitive world are at a great advantage by practicing Onboarding. An effective Onboarding practice leads to increase in the productivity of the employees, engagement, and retention. Due to this the employees develop a quicker speed and remain in the job for a longer time period.

Orientation is an occasion. Onboarding is a procedure.

Onboarding is at times, mistaken. Many organizations mix up orientation for onboarding. Orientation informs the employee regarding the direct procedures and systems they have to know. It consists of signing the employees up for work, accepting company ID, and understanding all the documents required under various situations. Whereas, Onboarding unfolds all through the initial 6-18 months of business, passing through hiring through pre-boarding and introduction, to lead new employees to successful performance.

It is important for each organization to set up a formal onboarding program that is securely adjusted to its employment brand, culture, and growing business targets. Ensure that the employees are provided with a suitable onboarding strategy so that their working days don’t turn out to be frustrating and confusing.

Instead of putting a bunch of files to work on in front of the employees, take some time to help them go through the Onboarding procedure. Once the employee is familiar with the whole process of the Onboarding process, it will lead to the delivery of the long-term benefits of the organization.

The following key focuses will enable you to get your newly hired employees on track, up to speed and “on board” so they can begin adding to your organization’s prosperity as quickly as possible.

Onboarding process must be innovative and decent:

Consider the experience from the worker’s point of view, and after that attempt to make it fun, interesting, energizing, effortless, and as basic, as could be expected. Through this, you will make your new employee feel happy, interested and energized.

The organization must post new worker introduction plans, materials, benefits frames, and a broad FAQ about the organization online that is open to new employees from a link in the welcome email before their first day at work.

Generation of New Employee Orientation Personal:

An onboarding procedure ensures employees follow up with the organization culture from the very beginning. It connects them with collaborators, chiefs, and pioneers of the organization so they feel some portion of the group, and furthermore praise the parts other staff play. Due to this, they will know whom to contact when they have a question, and how different groups and divisions cooperate, enabling them to be more profitable. Try not to make the very first moment about printed material.

Experience of the clients should be made better:

Cheerful employees mean cheerful clients. If you want to ensure that your employees are much connected with the experience of the clients then there is a need to make your employees more joyful in their work.

With an onboarding technique, your company can guarantee on trustworthy client benefit involvement with all levels of your company, regardless of whether a client is interfacing with a business agent or an organization’s Twitter account.

Organizational thinking to be done strategically:

Onboarding can improve your organization’s reaction to industry patterns. At the point when workers in all cases at your company have been set up for growth and development, it makes your organization more crucial and focused.

Higher Revenue:

The calculation for Higher Revenue is quite simple i.e. Higher employee retention + greater employee productivity + better customer service + more strategic thinking = higher revenue. Your organization’s bottom line can have a great impact by an Onboarding program. If the onboarding is done in the right way, the first day it will lead to a strong relationship between the organizational profitability and the employee’s satisfaction and happiness.

 

Onboarding should never be neglected. Companies giving proper time to Onboarding processes stay ahead in competition than those organizations which do not practice Onboarding. Let your employees feel proud, satisfied and happy to work with you. Onboarding will undoubtedly help your organization succeed.
