If you don't question your abilities from time to time...or wonder if you have what it takes to reach the next rung of the career ladder...then your likely not human.
The truth is, everyone struggles with self doubt.
The good news is knowing that we all do in fact share this struggle. Here is a link to the article with some thoughts on how to overcome these character traits. Below is a list of those traits.
2) Time Management
3) Influence & Friendship
Regardless of what fuels your self doubt - take some time to step back...reflect on where you've come from...reflect on the blessings in your life you do have...and help those in your world that have bigger issues or problems. All of a sudden, the self induced pressure...and self induced self doubt...will wither away.
Take care everyone,
Ever wonder how interviewers can peel back the layers of your interview response to really get to the core of what they want to know? It's not easy...for sure. There is a lot of information regarding behavior based interviewing...and today's candidates come loaded with lots of "STAR" examples.
That said, some other industries are trying some old and new ways to get beyond the "canned" answers. I came across this article in HBR and found it valuable.
Here is a link to the full article. Below are the highlights.
1) The interviewer will coach you (this isn't new of course)
2) The interviewer will interview you within a group of other candidates - all in the same room (never experienced this myself)
3) Test the "fit" by discussing culture (makes sense)
It's an interesting read and can give you insight into how other industries approach interviewing. And, if anything, can prepare you for a new wrinkle in pharma interviews.
Have a great day!
Sorry, but this ad makes me laugh. Next time, don't forget to bring your unicorn to the interview. Enjoy!
"We won't be distracted by comparison if we're captivated with purpose."
Exactly! Focus on what you can control - nothing else.
My apologies for not posting any new content...outside of motivational quotes...for a while. It's been a very busy time lately and lots of great new things happening! This post I have doubled up on some helpful info.
I know this is a tough time of year for many in the pharma or medical industry. Companies examine trends and tighten budgets...or reallocate budgets...based on forecasting for next year...and layoffs take place.
For those that this happens too, I think you know, this is part of this industry. If there isn't a product to sell...or if it makes sense to "cut bait", then the company will do just that.
Attached here is a link to an article that describes how the interview process has changed over the years. Take a look. Below are the highlights.
Remember - if you are looking for a new job, regardless of your situation, purchase the Breakthrough Blueprint for $5. I promise, it will help you put your best foot forward in your next interview.
1) Prepare for video or Skype
2) Research the company
3) Research the hiring manager
So, when you get that interview, how are you answering the "What should we hire you...?".
Again, here is a link and below are the highlights to help generate some creative thought in your mind as you prepare.
I share this...and all info...not to be prescriptive...but to help generate your own thought. No one...including myself...has all the answers.
1) Show them what's in it for everyone
2) Highlight your unique qualities
3) Give them your elevator pitch
Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving everyone!
"Identify your problems but give your power and energy to solutions."
I really like this quote. I have found myself giving my power and energy to the problem through anxiety....when I should really be doing just the opposite.
Have a great week everyone!
"Supporting another's success won't ever dampen yours."
And I will add - you will reflect professionalism and a positive brand image. Let's face it. We are all blessed. Cheer for your peers success - even if you wish you'd won or were on that stage.
Have a great week everyone!
"When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation, change the situation, or accept it. All else is madness."
This is something I personally need to consider more often. Have a great week everyone!
"Tell people what you need, NOT what to do."
Again - this is what a good leader does. Engagement translates into productivity. The keys to engagement are to listen and learn and get out of the way. Coach when necessary.
Have a great week!
