What Employers Really Look For When Hiring a College Graduate in 2009

Even though we are in a recession; the war for talent still exists. Now more than ever employers are looking even more closely for individuals who can "contribute to the organizations bottom line." Very simply, employers are looking for candidates who have the right degree and skill-sets necessary for success in the position they are trying to fill. This may appear to be an obvious statement; but, many college graduates don't take this basic message to heart. The completion of a degree does not guarantee a job. Employers want to know what you will do for them.

The 2008 survey conducted by collegegrad.com indicated that 44% of the responding employers ranked the graduates major as the top priority, interviewing skills placed second, a graduates internship and experience ranked third, and 10% of respondents cited the college the student graduated from came in fourth as a priority in their hiring consideration process. According to the National Association of Colleges and Businesses 2009 job survey, the top 5 personal qualities / skills employers seek, are: communication skills (verbal and written), a strong work ethic, teamwork skills (works well with others), initiative and analytical skills in that order.

The above is useful information to consider when preparing to look for a job; However, to compete most effectively, candidates need to know more, and do more, with the information so they can set themselves apart from others in today's competitive job market. And … in addition to the above, there are other important considerations organizations look for when considering candidates for a position.

When you get by the obvious, right major, relevant skill set and the ability to interview and possibly the completion of a well directed internship, the "attitude" of the candidate becomes one of the major factors in the hiring process. In fact, the majority of employers in good organizations have adopted the mantra "hire attitude, train skill." They have come to realize over time that smart people can learn new skills, but individuals with a poor attitude most often cannot be change, nor does the organization want to invest the time, money and effort to change a person's attitude. The message about a great attitude is not being imparted strongly to very many graduates. One of the major keys to employment is a great, genuine and positive attitude!

Secondly, your demonstrated work ethic is critical to your potential employer. What will you do in your new job that will fill the employer's needs? What have you learned in college, internships, part time jobs, volunteer work or life experiences that will enable you to apply and take advantage of opportunities in their organization?

Most college graduates are "theory smart." They know what the book says and have proven their ability to pass curriculum requirements, the big question the employer is concerned about is "can you apply in the real world what you have learned." Can you write a report which clearly communicates and has impact? Can you effectively communicate within a team setting to help bring a project to a successful conclusion? Do you have a "get it done in a cost effective manner" attitude? Being able to demonstrate how you will apply the theory you have learned in school to real situations in the workplace, will give you a leg up on the competition.

Third, can you demonstrate leadership skills in the workplace? Leadership shows a willingness to take an active interest in something or someone to the next level. As a college graduate, most often you will quickly be expected to take on the responsibility of a leadership role in your career. This can be in the form of project management or a team leadership role. If you are a leader verses a follower, and can provide leadership examples, employers will be more likely to hire you. Your leadership abilities are also a good indication to the hiring organization that you are a self-starter and a take charge person.

The over-riding message expressed by employers in all segments of the for-profit and non-profit organizations is this … Employers are looking for people who can do the job. Employers want people who have the necessary academic, technical and interpersonal skills and competencies required for the position for which they are being considered. One last quality hiring employers like to see is the knowledge the applicant has of their organization. Research the company as deeply as possible so you demonstrate in your resume, cover letter and interview your knowledge of their operation. The extent of your "company knowledge" will enable you to ask pointed and clear questions and demonstrate your sincere interest in their organization. If you take a serious interest in them, they might just return the same to you.

Word of Mouth Marketing – A Neglected Online Marketing Partner

Word of mouth marketing has been around long before the dawn of modern electronic communications, and long before the Internet. It is therefore amazing to see that up till today, the two concepts are being seen as mutually exclusive and not complementary to each other.

What is Word-of-Mouth Marketing?

This form of marketing is often also referred to as Word of Mouth Advertising , which entails the process of actively encouraging and influencing an organic word of mouth discussion about a product, brand, resource, or even a specific corporate message or event. It is then left up to your employees, clients or customers to spread the news and advocate the core message. A more commonly used phrase for this, is to refer to it as viral marketing .

It is well-known that it comes with the pros of being positively embraced if reaching an intended market. It does however have its cons if the message is unclear and has an intended bias to a certain group, whether racial, cultural, sexist, religious, rich etc. poor

Online marketing on the other hand needs little introduction as we are being bombarded with it daily via websites, social media and other digital media platforms. In more formal terms it is about capturing and extending the customer experience at crucial points. It is also about building a relationship and continuously adapting across different channels in order to reach specific customers.

So where is the synergy between Word of Mouth Marketing and Online Marketing?

The answer is undoubtedly with affiliate marketing which is about selling or promoting someone else's goods and services and then getting paid for it. This can be either physical goods via Amazon or say digital goods via online marketing platforms like ClickBank. The affiliate simply searches for a product that has high external or personal appeal, then promotes that product or service and gets rewarded in some form or other.

In many instances, companies encourage their workers to inform friends or families about new offerings and will issue discount vouchers etc. The employees in turn will be incentivised depending as per the level of engagement. In this instance, the marketing will most likely be Word of Mouth, but essentially the employee now acts as an "affiliate marketer" for the company.

Online marketing has the potential to make people huge money irrespective of the very differences mentioned earlier ie race, gender, social standing etc. It has a very low barrier to entry and a multitude of companies to affiliate with. Another advantage is the global, reach so you are certainly not restricted to only marketing in your local or country geographical zone.

If an affiliate marketer has a very good product and use a correctly executed word of mouth strategy as a free form of advertising, it will cost significantly less than any paid marketing channel . Potential buyers usually tend to search online for reviews and information before making a buying decision. A substantial amount however also relies on friends, family and colleagues before making the buying decision.

It is therefore obvious that the vast potential of integrating the above two concepts has not been fully explored. I would suggest that people looking for methods on how to make extra cash , seriously consider getting a good grip on affiliate marketing, and using word of mouth to extend their client base.

Linux Explained

Today, I will introduce you to the joys of Open Source software with a special mention going to the Linux Distribution.

Let's take it one step at a time. Windows comes in different varieties, for example, XP, Vista, 7 and so on. So does Linux, however there are some fundamental differences between the two.

At the time of writing there are literally hundreds of Linux Distributions available from hundreds of different companies all offering their own "flavor" of Linux. Since there is no one company in charge of Linux development distributions can fork off and take their own direction, for example Slackware is aimed at the Linux pro where Smoothwall is a dedicated firewall. Chances are there is a distribution which fits your own personal criteria.

OK, so which one is best? Well this depends on your own point of view. Linux pros might like Slackware or Gentoo, intermediates with some knowledge of Linux might like Fedora while total newbees might like Ubuntu or Mint. Your best bet is to take a look at Distrowatch to see a list of all the distributions and pick the one that suits you.

This is where Windows users will usually perk up and say Linux is rubbish, it has no support, no packages, you have to use the command line all the time and it is not compatible with anything. Lets use Linux Mint 12 as an example. Linux Mint 12 comes with the option of 30,000 packages for you to download if you wish. Does sir want a package to play their CD's on then how about Rhythmbox or a package for pictures then use GIMP. You see there is a package for just about anything you could wish for.

What about support? You can use the online community forums for your distribution for hints and solutions on how to fix any problems that you might have (in the same way you do for windows). The thing is that you will probably have less things go wrong with a linux system than you will with windows.

As for the command line you can use it if you wish but it is not necessary. It is true that to fully understand Linux the command line is essential but if you only want to browse the web, download packages and just do all the usual stuff then you don't need to go near it.

So lets round up. Linux HAS support, Linux HAS thousands of packages, you DON'T have to use the command line if you don't want to and IS compatible with all the standards (just save stuff as a doc file for instance). It is also more stable, free (no license fee) and you DON'T have to worry about viruses. Go on give it a go!

How to Measure Recruitment to Improve Effectiveness

It is often essential for the HR Department to be discreet in recruiting new employees because it requires a lot of effort and training time to create quality performance from these people. An organization needs to learn how to measure recruitment to tell if the HR department in a certain organization is performing well to meet the demands in the organization. Only those who have excellent profiles can get the job, as well as those who are projected to be efficient for the position.

Good profiling and selection is the basic step for all kinds of recruitment. Most recruiters think that skills are the most essential in passing the first step in selection. However, if the applicant does not pass the minimum skill requirement, then it means he will not be efficient enough for the job. That is one of the big mistakes in recruitment. There are a lot of ways to measure recruitment effectiveness in order to save time in conducting a "trial and error" method every time you hire personnel.

If you want to measure the production point of view in recruitment, then you can make a relative comparison between the employee production and product knowledge and the recruitment and training team. The other perspective is about the financial side of the company, and you can measure the recruitment effectiveness here by yield. There are actually three kinds of yields, which are the first pass yield, the second pass yield, and the RTY or roll through put yield. The first is very simple and can be easily calculated by just dividing the number of people hired by the number of people interviewed. Then for the second pass yield, the number of people is divided by the number of applicants who passed the second test by the number of those who passed the first test. And for the RTY, the percentage from the first pass yield is multiplied by the percentage from the second pass yield and multiplied in the third step.

Another way to measure recruitment performance is the cost-per-hire. You can divide the total recruiting costs by the number of filled positions. The new hire quality is yet another measurement. You can appraise employees on their first ninety to one hundred eighty days during their training days and actual working days. This period is enough for you to see if the trainees meet the performance level in their probationary period and then you can now list them for regularization. This is really systematic and you will not get lost.

With all these available methods on handling recruitment, you will not only save time but money as well. You also shed out some when you are advertising a job opening, processing of exams, and other things related to the application process. When you know how to measure recruitment, then you cut down on costs, and also on the probability of getting inefficient employees. It is not bad to set high standards for your company. It is only that you are making sure you will get the best manpower out of a multitude of skilled people in the industry.

Health Care Billing Issues: Sudden and Expensive

Insurance is designed for sudden expensive exposure that most of us cannot afford. If you look at those words again: sudden and expensive. It does not spell out the predictable and affordable. For years though, we had someone with the bigger purse paying the bills. Most of us had very little to pay out-of-pocket for any of our own medical expenses. At least until now.

It's common knowledge that those who have more money tend to have more to spend without question. Insurance companies are not any different; they are the ones with the bigger purse. Medical providers know this as well. Over the last 50-60 years, the providers increased their prices to see what they can get away with, at the same time the insurance companies were negotiating for bigger discounts. This is how healthcare became big business. The insurance companies fronted this cost, and now we have to cover the expense of higher premiums today.

The pricing transparency is null in the healthcare industry. Partly because we never needed to know because someone else was paying the bulk of the bill. The other reason is that no one shopped their healthcare expenses like they do other consumable items. The medical providers know this and took advantage of this. The price for something billed to the insurance company and what is the 'cash price' can be completely different. Which one are you going to pay?

It's highway robbery if you ask me. Take a typical generic medication at the local pharmacy. One could cost about twenty dollars to the insurance company, but your price if you pay the cash price could be ten dollars. Why? It is because they can.

The opposite is also true. If you ask for the cash price, it could be double what the insurance companies negotiated price. Many providers will charge the patient the billed amount versus the discounted amount. It's kind of like since you asked I'll charge you more.

Personal case study: My kid injured his hand. The specialist could not tell that it was fractured or not. They wanted to lean on the side of caution, but I wanted to know if it was just a deep bruise or a fracture. The doctor suggested that we do an MRI on his hand just to be sure. As any caring father would, I inquired how much would this cost me if I paid cash, I have a high deductible health plan. He said the insurance company approved amount is $ 350 (this was a small MRI machine). He continued and said I don't make anything from them. So if you pay cash, I would charge you $ 450.

With many policyholders having High Deductible Health Plans (HDHP) or Health Savings Account Plans (HSAs), many providers realize the patient is responsible for the initial expenses. This can be good and bad depending on the view.

First, there is the negative view. Many are expecting the first dollar coverage to be paid for by the insurance company. Every doctor visit, lab test or prescription drug is coming out of your pocket first and is applied towards your deductible. Some may not like this idea.

The flip side to this is you have more control of your expenses while saving in premium costs. The net gain is worth it for many. They can ask more questions about their healthcare. Why? It is because it's their money. More importantly, you should be asking more questions about your healthcare.

At the end of the day, it is your healthcare and your money. Finding that happy middle ground between the cost of the coverage and what you get for it can be overwhelming and expensive. Figuring out what is important to you and asking enough questions so you can make better-educated decisions will save you thousands of dollars over the years. After all, it is your money.

Some of the differences between Windows Resell Hosting plans and Linux Resell Hosting plans are described below:

Customization :

The most basic difference between the two types of hosting plans is the options for customization. Though both the plans offer customization, the features offered by Linux is more flexible than that of Windows. Generally, the developers or admins prefer Linux Re-seller Hosting over Windows Re-seller Hosting.

If you are determined about investing in hosting services, you can choose any of the Windows Reseller Hosting and Linux Reseller Hosting Plans. Both of these plans are cost-effective.
