SpreadAid International Launches the “Adopt-a-school” Project -Founder and Executive Director, Mr. Dzagbletey Faith Adabah Julius shares with SammytheAuthor

Each day is a new day to showcase what you have. Don’t sit idle and expect your needs to be satisfied. Wake up, work hard, get the money and pick someone else up. As humans, we exist to help eachother, regardless. Today on Exclusives with SammytheAuthor, an Inspiring Ghanaian Entrepreneur and founder of Spreadaid International shares with us, his upcoming projects. Check the Interview below.

1: Hello, Mr. Adabah, kindly take us through your journey as an Entrepreneur.

Thank you Brother Samuel for the opportunity and I am grateful to all and sundry especially to all members of SpreadAid International out there who have been supportive throughout these years.

I will describe my activities as a social entrepreneur and a self-employed person. Social entrepreneur in the sense that I am committed to finding approaches that seek to develop, fund, and implement solutions to social, cultural and environmental issues especially in the area of education and youth development.

As you are already aware through our previous interviews, this drive of providing solutions led to the establishment of SpreadAid International.

As a self-employed person, I create avenues of business opportunities that could translate monetarily to take care of what I do on daily basis and also to help achieve set short, medium and long term goals.

The journey as a social entrepreneur and a self-employed person was all motivated by the strong desire to help people and to be part of solution providers.

Circumstances of life have presented a situation that each day, every individual is forced to think or focus on him/herself without extending help to others. These same situations have also made it possible for people to move from just thinking about themselves to start thinking about what they could do to help others, build them up and also send them out to be helpers of others. In that case, gradually creating helpers all over the world. With time, this whole unwritten agendum has found its way grounded and documented in SpreadAid International’s Eagle’s Eye ( a document which continues the vision, mission statements, achievements and future outlined plans of the organization). The categorization has been specified as

•Philathropy

•Businesss

• Systems and Administration

These are the pillars we have build so far to grow and bring into fruition our passion of building helpers all over the world.

2: What is Spreadaid International all about?

SpreadAid International (SAI) is a registered service-oriented Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) dedicated to supporting and improving the plight of the less privileged in the society and helping the youth to hone their talents and skills for their own and national development. SAI primarily focuses on and embarks on projects aimed at promoting education and youth development with the goal of “Putting Back Smiles on Faces”. The idea behind the inception of the organization was birthed back in March 2011 when a group of high school students from different schools under unexpected circumstances came together to share past examination questions among themselves to facilitate transfer of knowledge. SpreadAid International as it is known today metamorphosed from the original name, GreenAid (Fresh Help) and from simply being a study group to a registered NGO today committed to advocating for and supporting the cause of the less privileged in society.

3: What was the mission from the onset?

Since the inception of this organization, the mission of SAI has been about championing the cause of deprived persons, unearthing the talents of the youth and helping groom them for better life prospects and basically, helping others grow. All in all, SAI seeks to:

•Advocate for and support the less privileged in society.

•Unearth and build talents in the youth.

•Promote excellence in education.

•Undertake volunteer programs.

4: Kindly throw more light on the Adopt-a-School project.

The second phase of SAI in her mandate to help alleviate the suffering of the less privileged in society and build up the youth for self and national development materializes from February 1, 2020 to November 30, 2025. During this five-year period which marks a renewed beginning and similarly, continuation of the phase one of the organizations, key and impactful projects would come to fruition. This is in line with the core vision and mission of all Spreaders to contribute to human and community development and to impact as many lives as possible.

FOCUS OF PHASE TWO

The focus of this second chapter of the organization will be directed towards the promotion and support of education particularly, at the basic level (lower and upper primary) and Junior High School. There are many a school especially in rural communities all the country over who are deprived supportive mechanisms ranging from utilities, teaching and learning materials, and uniforms among others needed to ameliorate educational challenges and make the school an attractive place to be. SAI is committed to alleviating such constraints.

The provisions in this second phase like previous projects are further aimed at helping achieve the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4 which is about quality education. The goal is to ensure all-encompassing and equitable quality education as well as advance lasting learning prospects or opportunities for all. SAI, since its inception has touched several lives and contributed to this goal and its phase two would continue to do same and more.

LOCATION

The Nyitawuta D/A Primary School situated in the Akatsi North District in the Volta region will be the center of SpreadAid’s intervention within the five-year span. This school, located in a typically rural area, to an unsurprisingly great magnitude is constrained financially, geographically and socially. This is problematic as their persisting conditions become disincentives for the students to cultivate the passion for school and education.

Children run the risk of being truant or at worst, dropping out of school to for instance, help their parents on the farm all in the absence of needed support, facilities and effective learning environments. 

AGENDA

The plan here is to mitigate the challenges that impede the education of the students and help them imbibe the reading culture, that is, encourage them and ensure that they adopt self-reading and self-learning for their development.

The foundation of children is a determining factor in how and what they grow up to be. Promoting the reading culture especially at the primary level through the provision of the needed resources, facilities and conducive atmosphere would accordingly create well rounded students who read not just because they have to but because they want to. SpreadAid International will be focused on making reading, learning, the school and education in general attractive to the students in order to ensure this.

PROJECT TO EMBARK ON – “ADOPT-A-SCHOOL” PROJECT

The project to be executed dubbed, “Adopt-a-School” project, as the name implies would involve SpreadAid International taking on or adopting a community school, herein, Nyitawuta D/A Primary School and bettering their conditions to a considerable degree.

This project is an upgrade of the flagship outreach scheme of SpreadAid International’s first phase, “Project 5000” where the lives of thousands of students from some schools in rural communities across the country were impacted through the organization’s provision of stationery, educational materials and basic aid to support teaching, learning and the general wellbeing of the students.

The “Adopt-a-School” project branching out, further houses two major projects, one to be realized in a space of one year and the other in the subsequent years. These two projects are:

1. “CLOTHE-ME-FOR-SCHOOL”  PROJECT

Students in less privileged schools are disadvantaged in several ways including the lack of uniforms to attend school with. Most often the best they possess are old, worn-out or tattered clothes with little hope of acquiring new ones owning to the abysmally low incomes and high poverty rates bedeviling parents or guardians in such communities. This is a great disincentive for children and goes a long way to demotivate them from going to school or learning, hence threatening their bright future and impeding an expedited achievement of SDG 4.

AIM OF PROJECT

The aim of the “Clothe-Me- for-School” projectis to encourage and incentivize the young ones to be in the classroom and this will be achieved through the provision of tailored uniforms, school bags and stationery to meet that peculiar need.

It is common place for children in deprived communities to be relegated to farming activities at the expense of securing an education and the lack of uniforms is one such contributory factor to this phenomenon as aforementioned. Under the “Clothe- Me-for-School” project, great efforts will be channeled into bringing as many children as there are from the farm and into the classroom through this provision of appropriate or right uniforms to attend school with.

TIMELINE OF PROJECT

The project will be executed within the second year of the second phase of SAI, specifically, from February 2021 to November 2021. 

Also, the project, within this period will serve as a preparatory ground to usher all and sundry into the next undertaking of SAI under the “Adopt-a-School” project.

BUDGET

The projected budget of the “Clothe-Me-for-School” project is pegged at fourteen thousand, four hundred Ghana cedis (GH¢ 14,400.00).

2. THE LIBRARY PROJECT – “READ-TO-LEAD” PROJECT

This is the other major project under the “Adopt-a-School” projectwhich as underscored is aimed at helping the school children inculcate the reading culture and nurture the desire to be in school.

Functional and properly furnished libraries in basic schools especially in rural areas are very rare if not completely nonexistent. SAI intends to change that narrative one school at a time, starting with the Nyitawuta D/A Primary School in order to afford the students similar opportunities enjoyed by their peers in other urbanized communities.

AIM OF PROJECT

The aim, as captured in the name of the project is to put up a functional and well-resourced library, stocked with essential books and library services to accommodate the reading needs of students. The whole idea is to make the students want to read by and for themselves and to do this, the best has to be provided to motivate them. Through this, there will be renewed hope for a future generation of well-read and educated leaders who as children had the appropriate foundation regardless of their geographical location or circumstances.

TIMELINE OF PROJECT

The “Read-to-Lead” projectwill be rolled out from February 2022 to November 2025, marking the pinnacle of the SAI’s second phase.

BUDGET

The estimated budget of the project sits at one hundred and ten thousand Ghana cedis (GH¢ 110, 000).

FUNDING OF BOTH PROJECTS

Both “Clothe-Me-for-School” project and “Read-to-Lead” project will be funded by sponsorships solicited from different sources including from members of SpreadAid International, individuals in the society, families and friends, companies, some government bodies and potential external sources. SAI will also be open to collaborations with other NGOs for the realization of this goal.

5: Has it been difficult getting sponsors on board for these great projects so far?

Actually, we are still in the preparatory stage of embarking on the first project- “Clothe-me-for-school”.

We have received some funds from individuals who would want to see to it that by their contribution, these young ones are able to smile in their new uniforms to boost them up psychologically for studies. We are grateful to each and everyone of them. We have however not yet hit even half of the projected amount of Gh 14,400 for this project. We would like to use this platform to reach out to our brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers and all well wishers out there to help us bring this project to its fruition. Each uniform costs Gh 50.00 and we have targeted 200 uniforms.

You can send your contributions through our bank account or conveniently through mtn mobile money. Details are on the flier. A single uniform can go a long way to encourage a child who hasn’t been in any until now, to get motivated to go after his/her dreams.

6: Do you have plans on partnering with other NGOs locally and internationally?

For this particular project, we have so far had feedback from abams_foundation. They would like to support with footwear for these children. We would definitely want to have more of such kind-hearted NGOs on board for us to do this together. This is going to be a major victory to all of us who would join hands to make it happen. Both locally and internationally, our arms are opened to embrace individuals and set-ups who would want to clothe a child for school and also get on board out next major project of putting up a Library facility for Nyitawuta D/A School.

Exclusive: Your Past Failures Shouldn’t Be A Summary of Regrets, But Lessons learned – Ms. Kimberly Ofori Shares With SammytheAuthor

Failure doesn’t automatically predict the outcome of our future. Just because you failed doesn’t necessarily mean you shouldn’t try again. Rise up after every fall. Your dreams are achievable. Don’t stop now, keep pushing. Today on Exclusives with SammytheAuthor, an Inspiring Ghanaian – Netherland based Serial Entrepreneur, shares with us, her life story and career as an Entrepreneur and Philanthropist . Checkout the Interview Below.

1: For the benefits of the people who might not know you, tell us a bit about yourself. (Background, Education, Career, etc.).

I was born and raised in the Netherlands by my Suriname mother and Ghanaian father. I have always been an advocate for self-education and lifelong learning. So after studying marketing and communications, I set out to educate myself on other topics that interest me such as, digital transformation, Design Thinking, Business strategy, and finance through programs from Boston University, Harvard Business School, and Oxford University.

I spent a few years in the banking and insurance industry until I moved to Dubai, where I started my consulting career. A few years after that, I traveled a bit in Europe before moving back to the Netherlands as an Entrepreneur. Aside from my businesses, I now work together with an amazing team at ScaleupNation on a mission to increase the odds for startups to scale successfully through research and innovative tools.

2: What’s the story behind your personality?

I think a lot of different life events and environmental factors play a role in one’s personality. At the core, I believe I am as much a dreamer as I am a realist, allowing me to approach life, relationships and decisions more holistically. It’s probably the reason why I connect well with different people and on all levels.

3: What has been your go-to-source when all hell is breaking loose in your life?

Reflection. I try to take time to reflect daily but, sometimes life gets tough. I usually decide to retreat, spend some time alone to clear my mind, write things down and re-energize. It’s such a powerful thing to meet your obstacles head-on with a clear mind, knowing exactly; what you’re going to do about it.

4: What triggered the idea to commence Growth Lab? Give us an overview of what you do.

Growth lab was born out of the idea to help more growth-stage startups to scale by focusing on specific elements of the scaling journey. Unlike an accelerator that tries to get everything patched up a bit and all at the same time we focus more on the successful execution of sprints on strategy or leadership; for instance, through growth programs. We are currently pivoting, however, and I’ll be able to share more about that soon.

5: Being a Woman Empowerment Enthusiast and Growth Strategist, what are some of the necessary steps to take as a young lady looking to build her brand? Anything shareable?

It’s funny, I never saw my personal brand as a thing to work on; Up until 2020, and I was happily doing the work on the background. It wasn’t until I had to face the fact that in the world of business, the same rules do not apply for (black) women as they do for men, I decided something had to change. I think the biggest insight for me was how powerful sharing your unique story is. It’s something so uniquely yours, that it will attract the right audiences in due time if you just keep showing up authentically.

6: What is your take on Social Entrepreneurship?

I am a strong supporter of social entrepreneurship initiatives. It will be great if we start to hype and support these initiatives as much as we do with new tech solutions that don’t necessarily solve any real-world problems. There is a shift happening, however, and I believe we will see more startups with a social impact focus in the next decade or so.

7: If you had the chance to turn back the hands of time, what would you have rectified in your business life?

I would have allowed myself to fail more. Try more things, involve more people earlier, and ask for help. However, it’s those elements of the entrepreneurial journey that you can only find out by learning. So in as much as; it would be nice to see where that would have taken me, I know for sure I wouldn’t be who I am today had I not done things exactly the way I did. So this is definitely not a summary of regrets, just lessons learned.

8: What has been your greatest fear ever since you started this walk?

The fear of failure. Funnily enough, not towards others by failure to meet my own expectations. I tend to set the bar for myself very high, and I think that’s good. I also know that not being able to meet my own expectations is something that I still find hard to deal with. The lesson for me in this is; about finding the balance between aiming for the moon and giving myself grace sometimes.

9: How can one transition his/her team to remote-working times of crisis.

Although it is always preferable to establish clear remote-work policies and training in advance, in times of crisis or other rapidly changing circumstances, this level of preparation may not be feasible. Recent developments have left many employees and their managers working out of the office and separated from each other for the very first time.

4 steps to remote work

Daily huddles:

The first thing that I recommend managers do is to establish daily check-ins or daily huddles. The morning huddle is a great way to get the team aligned on individual and company priorities for that day. The huddle is a really short meeting to share your number one or two priorities for that day, it is not a place to go over your to-do list. You will share your definition of done on those set priorities so that everyone understands exactly what you will be working on today and when this is considered to be done.

The huddle also functions as a way to recognise hurdles or bottlenecks that may get in the way of progress for that day – which then can easily be resolved on the spot by making use of the collective intelligence present – avoiding people getting stuck for hours trying to fix something all by themselves (which is killing for productivity). And I recommend doing this via a video conferencing tool always to keep that sense of human connection within the team.

Communication tools:

Secondly, provide several different communication options – because you will find that email alone is insufficient. When it’s time for deliberation, strategy sessions, team collaboration sessions or any type of meeting that will take on more than 10 minutes by the rule of thumb – use a video conferencing tool. Being able to see the visual cues of meeting participants allows for increased mutual knowledge that can be tapped into, and will help make meetings more effective.

Of course, there are other circumstances when quick collaboration is more important than visual detail. And for these situations, provide mobile-enabled individual messaging tools like Slack, which can be used for simpler conversations as well as time-sensitive communication. And then you can make use of project management and tracking tools such as Monday, Trello, or Asana.

10: Any challenges faced coming up as an Entrepreneur?

Entrepreneurship is not for the faint of heart. It is a long and hard journey that will stretch you on all levels. I personally found being patient and trusting the process when you are building your business the hardest, part, especially when you are the only person who believes this is going to work. They say it’s lonely at the top, and at some points, it truly is. That’s why it’s important to be careful who you surround yourself with; your circle plays a big part in how far you will go.

Is Your Current Job Right For You?

<!––>

Many people are in jobs where they have mixed feelings about the job being right for them or not. The question on the mind of many employees is ‘is this job right for me?’ Well, this is a rhetorical question which can be answered by you if you take notice of the following;

First, you will know you are doing the right job when you really enjoy your work and get home often fulfilled and happy. This shows that you are really happy with your work and that you are at the right place. But, if you are always not happy about the job and always complaining about the slightest thing, then you are doing the wrong job.

Second, when the work or job best fit your skills and personality, it is right for you. If your skills, passion and values match your job, then it is right for you. This is because you will do the work with less struggle and comfortably carry out your duties. Nonetheless, if your skills do not conform with what you do, you will have struggles with carrying out your duties making the job not right for you.

Also, if you see a career path in your organization or growth in yourself, then the job is right for you. If the job you are doing may help you reach your future career ambitions or helps you to improve yourself in various regards, then it is right for you but if otherwise, then it may not be right for you.

You can tell the job is right for you when you are contempt with the role you play and the salary you are given. Anytime you feel you are overworking and under paid, it means that you may be using too much of your potentials at a place which values them less. Hence, that job is not right for you. However, if you are happy with the amount of work you put in and the salary you are given, it means you are at the right place.

Your job is not right for you if your level of productivity is always lower than what is expected of you. Every employer expects some level of productivity form his or her employees, if yours is always lower than expected, it insinuates that your potentials are too low for such a job, hence, it is not right for you. Nonetheless, if your outputs are up to standards of your employer or even more, it means that you are doing the right job.

Additionally, your current job is right for you if you feel very secure at your work place. If going to work makes you happy because the environment is serene, friendly and safe, it means you are at the right place. If you have a cordial relationship with your co-workers giving you peace of mind anytime any time you are at work, then it is right for you. Otherwise, you are at the wrong place.

Furthermore, your current job is right for you when your welfare and wellbeing is important to your employers. Working at a place where your welfare is not of concern to your employers is very dangerous and is not right for you. However, if your welfare is crucial to the company then it is right for you.

You are doing the right job if your work does not seem like a burden to you but you easily carry out your duties. In carrying out your duties at work, you don’t find it burdensome but joyful, then you are doing the right job. On the other hand, if you find yourself constantly murmuring or angry at your own tasks for no reason, then you are at the wrong place. When you dread that weekends are coming to an end and you will have to go to work on Monday, it is a sign that you are not really interested in what you are doing hence, it is not right for you.

When your first response to the question ‘do you like your job?’ is a yes with some enthusiasm, then you are doing the right job. But, if you are not sure of your response, then it becomes evident that you have no or less interest in your job therefore, it is not right for you.

To conclude, it is essential to know if your current job is right for you or not in order to help you make necessary decisions. If you find out that your current job is not right for you, you need to carefully plan how to leave and how to find a right one. On the other hand, if it is right for you, stay and be happy.

How To Get A Pay Raise And What To Do If You Don’t Get.

Income is very crucial to all employees since that is what they feed on, use for their daily activities and go about their lives. Therefore, as long as one works for an organization, the person at one point or the other may ask for a pay raise. However, it is very important to note that one’s request for an increment in pay does not automatically guarantee that it will be done, this is to say that, one’s request may be rejected or not. Below is how one can ask for a pay raise and what to do if one does not get.

Firstly, you must prepare adequately before discussing such a delicate issue with your employer(s) A very rhetoric question one must ask him or herself before asking for a pay raise is ‘am I worth the pay raise?’. If you are going to win your employer(s) over, you need to build a strong case, demonstrating your value to the company and highlighting your worth in the market. Your employer(s) need(s) to be convinced that the business should invest more of its budget in you. Re-read your job contract and list the ways you have exceeded the role and delivered exceptional results, giving examples of your contribution to the company. You can quantify your contributions.

Searching for a high paying job? Visit http://duttee.com

Now, you can move on to schedule a meeting with your employer(s) in order to discuss this delicate issue. In meeting them, you ought to be professional and not aggressive. That is not the time to present to them, your sad stories and family issues, you need to present facts and figures and objective reasons why your pay should be raised. In a case where you are not given a positive feedback at the meeting, do not be unprofessional by threatening your employers to leave or to be reluctant, instead, be patient as your employers may be thinking through to get you your request. Alternatively, you can negotiate other employee benefits which may not be difficult for your boss to grant.

However, on the other side where you are turned down, do not fret, that is not the end of life. Firstly, give a proactive feedback to your employer (s). Ask them the reasons why you were not given the raise, maybe, the budget is not enough to give you an increment and if your performance is to blame, hearing these from your employer(s) will let you improve upon yourself. Secondly, focus on the future. Improve yourself. Focus on how best you can work in order to improve the productivity of the company in order not to be denied the next time you apply for a pay raise. Work closely with your employer(s) and seek constructive criticisms all the time in order to improve yourself. You can undertake short courses and other training opportunities to improve on your knowledge and skills in that particular field.

Lastly, if after a long while, you are still unsatisfied with your salary, you may look for other better opportunities. In so doing, do not rush to send a resignation letter but think through carefully if it’s the best decision for you before you make any move. Do not leave your ex company on bad notes.

How To Deal With Job Rejection & Plan Your Next Move.

duttee reject pic

To start with, no one likes to be rejected for a job. It hurts to find out that you’ve been turned down. It is very hard to cope with job rejection especially when it happens over and over again. But until you deal with that ordeal, you may never move on. To succeed in finding a dream opportunity and getting hired, it is important to cope with being turned down, otherwise, it is easy to let a momentary setback turn into a major career roadblock.

Get over the rejection by moving on with your job search and sharing frustrations with a supportive person(s) like family members and loved ones. In taking your frustrations off, resist the urge to say anything negative to the hiring manager. It could be that you were over qualified and the employer may be waiting to come back at a later date with a better job offer.

It is important to keep networking and applying until you find opportunities. Receiving positive responses from employers will soften the blow of being rejected and you may find another good offer too.
Go on to analyze your candidacy. Take the time to reflect on your approach to the hiring process to see if there is anything you could improve upon for future opportunities. Review your resume, cover letter, what transpired during the interview, and given what you learned about the job requirements and people involved, ask yourself if you could have done something differently in order to present yourself in a better light and better fit for the job.

Maintaining a connection with an employer could lead to a job down the line. This can be achieved by asking for feedback after you’re turned down. Self-analysis alone won’t paint the whole picture of why you weren’t employed. It doesn’t hurt to ask why you weren’t chosen. Though not typical, sometimes an employer will share feedback about your candidacy. If that’s not the case, and you developed a rapport with anyone at the organization, try approaching them with a request for constructive criticisms. There may have been forces outside your control, example, the company might have decided to promote someone internally. There could be a good reason why you were overlooked. If your skills didn’t meet the requirements, that’s something to keep in mind when applying for a future job. It’s better to know these reasons than to ignore them.
Always follow up with “a thank you” to employer(s) after a job rejection for letting you know their decision and express your gratitude for their time and consideration, and through that connection created, you can ask them to keep you in mind for future positions and opportunities. This is because, sometimes when a new manager comes in and needs to hire, companies keep record of former applicants they liked so they can fill open positions. Creating these connections show employers that you care about the organization or company which can help you get a job there down the road.
To conclude, keep learning and developing.

REASONS WHY EMPLOYERS ARE REJECTING YOUR JOB APPLICATIONS.

duttee -reasons

Everyone has a reason for doing things so do employers have their own reasons for rejecting job applications. More often, rejection comes from some petty mistakes and little things which applicants fail to do properly. Also, rejection can come from employers own decisions or factors beyond their control. However, your job applications may always be rejected if you keep doing the outlined below;
Firstly, one key reason for which your application may be rejected is when your application is flopped. This is to say that, when there are lot of mistakes, grammatical errors, poorly structured resumes and cover letters and what have you. These mostly puts the employers off so they tend to reject job applicants with such documents. If your application is flopped like this, it sends the message that you do not pay attention to details and that you do anything anyhow hence your job application will be rejected.

Secondly, poor performance during interviews can lead to your job application being rejected. Your performance at the interview really counts with regard to your hiring. No employer will employ someone who could not meet his or her standards during the interview. If you were not confident enough, if you could not answer certain questions well, if you lack knowledge on the position you are applying for, if you were rude and so on, you could be easily rejected. Therefore, it is very important that you prepare adequately for the interview else you may be rejected

Also, one reason why your job application can be rejected is when your skills do not best fit the role available. You may have a lot of qualities and skills but if they do not correspond to the particular ones the employer is looking for, you can be rejected. In order to avoid this kind of rejection, be sure to apply for positions where your skills best fit or you can also add more to your skills and learn more in order to widen your scope

When you fail to provide evidences such as certificates and documents mentioned in your Curriculum Vitae or when you fail to provide the basic requirements prescribed by the company for the job application, you can be rejected easily.
Moreover, you can be rejected by your prospective employer when you are very slow to respond with issues concerning your application. Your employer may be sending you some emails and texts, you keeping long in responding to these or not even replying at all may mean that you have no interest in the job or you are not serious hence, you will be rejected.

Furthermore, sometimes, you can be rejected just because you are over qualified for the job. Employers tend to reject people who they think are over qualified for the job. This because, they think they may not be able to pay them the due salary for such qualifications. Hence, they reject such people and go in for people with lower qualifications in order to afford their salary.

Your job application may be rejected when other co-workers do not approve of your hiring.
Another important reason why your job application will be rejected is when your passion and zeal for the job is low. During the interview, employers look out to see your passion through your mannerisms and gestures, however, if you are found not to be too enthusiastic or passionate about the job, you will be rejected.
Also, your job application may be rejected if you are always not on time for appointments during the hiring process. Not being on time clearly denotes that you cannot exhibit promptness and be serious with the job. Therefore, employers like to write off such people.
Last but not least, your job application will be rejected when your referees fail to clarify ambiguous issues within your CV making your story not add up or look like a lie. Employers often reject applications with such issues.Want a free CV audit from industry professionals? Submit your Cv here HYPERLINK “http://duttee.com&#8221; http://duttee.com

IMG-20200806-WA0039

There are lots of things that may affect your work potential. One among these is your boss. knowing the kind of boss, you have is a very important step in cultivating knowledgeable relationships with them. In spite of everything, bosses can dictate whether your stay with the company is going to be pleasurable or not. Getting on the right foot with your boss is critical for your career as well as your well-being. Considering this, it is crucial that you get to know the different types of bosses to work well with them. Here are 10 differing kinds of bosses, and the how you’ll be able to relate with them.
First, the visionary bosses. Visionary bosses tend to think a lot about the company’s potential, and also the future. They can not only predict what’s going to be hot in future, but also make ambitious plans to get there. Visionary bosses are innovative and experimental. They need plenty of ideas about which direction the company can take. Such bosses typically look for employees who are quick to take initiative, are self-driven enough to create their own growth path. More often than not, they would want you to come up with plans to achieve your self-development goals, and based on that, give you the needed support.
In order for you to endear yourself to a visionary boss, always try and help them achieve their ambitions. Help them understand their goal by making contributions, and by following it on a daily basis. Be a decent listener, demonstrate enthusiasm, and don’t be afraid to take risks. You’ll make mistakes but learn from them. Visionary bosses will appreciate you more for your risk-taking approach – instead of fail-safe approach. It’s best to approach them with bigger business decisions than smaller day-to-day issues. The key to working with them is to know their vision and be resourceful in helping your team and also the organization work towards it. If everything works out well, they’ll have you ever to thank.

Second, the Workaholic: is a manager who, even after breaks, continues to work overtime. They are generally very keen to complete tasks on time, and to do this they will recommend additional working hours. Many of them are rarely going on sick days, or taking leave of the office. Working under a workaholic manager is often stressful, especially if you’re not one. There’s a high chance it’ll greatly impact on your work life balance. If you would like to flourish under this kind of management, confirm you complete your deliverable on time. They’re going to have no reason to carry you back for more work.
Third, Micro Managers: These are dreaded in any workplace. Most bosses tend to become micro managers whenever the company is making losses. They will start concentrating on every single action you make, be it work or non-work related. They might concentrate on things like how long you took during lunch, what amount of work you’ve been able to deliver in a day or how much time you’ve spent on the phone, there is a very close monitoring. In such a situation, don’t take their over-involvement personally. Just do your work normally. If this is your boss type, the best solution is to make them busy. The only way to do this is by making sure you complete your work in time. They will have so much work to review that they will forget about micro managing.
Fourth, the traditionalists: These bosses tend to adhere to old company traditions, and they may mostly bring this up during meetings. They have probably been in the company for a very long time and they don’t take kindly to change. You should be careful never to argue with a traditionalist boss, always be receptive to their ideas. You never know, some of their archaic methods might actually work and yield good results. If ever there’s an easier way of executing a task, you can bring it to their attention in a polite manner. They don’t like to feel challenged. They’ll get more receptive to your ideas and opinions once they feel you’re receptive to theirs.
Fifth, the intimidator: These bosses are often called dictators as well. They resort to intimidation tactics, such as yelling, when communicating with their employees. They will definitely scold you if you fail to perform in a satisfactory manner. A good way to deal with managers like this is to make sure you do your work. Never give them reasons for shouting at you. Communicate with them about the work that you do if necessary, but don’t yield to their methods of coercion. They are going to come and thank you for that. As in the case of the micro-managers, never take it personally, It’s always about the job.
Sixth, the Unpredictable Boss: If you have an unpredictable boss, then there’s not much that you can do. These bosses’ actions are hard to predict. Although they may be happy with something today, tomorrow may not necessarily be the same. That means you’ll just have to break into a sweat every time you report to them. The only way you can try to alleviate their “unpredictability” is by making sure you are doing your job as expected.

 

Seventh, the Under-Qualified boss: This boss is one who is less educated than you, or knows little about the company and its processes. These bosses tend to be the creation of their own employees, since they will rely on you to provide information they might not be aware of. Never underestimate or undermine their power. Keep them close, and explain things they might not be aware of. Once they get up to speed with everything, they will have you to thank. If top management feels that they are underperforming, chances are you might be promoted to their position. It will always be a win-win situation for you.
Eighth, the Pacesetter: They mostly set challenges for their team to meet and expects the best outcome. They are not afraid to work hard to rescue a situation themselves. To work with such a boss, you should work hard and aim to be the best you can be, ask for clarifications on what you need to do and always share clear and regular progress updates.

Feeling Stuck? Checkout These Interview First Impression Tips (What You Should Know).

IMG-20200806-WA0038

An interview is often a structured conversation coupled with questions and answers about a particular phenomenon. Interviews are mostly carried out in the employment or hiring process. As the saying goes ‘first impression counts’, the first impression your interviewer gets about you most often than not becomes a long-lasting impression therefore it is very essential to leave good first impressions with people you come across with.

It is often said that an impression is gotten within the first few minutes of the interview but the bottom line is that you should leave a good impression before leaving the interview room. There are therefore some tips you should know in order to leave the best first impressions when you go for interviews.

First, your appearance to the interview matters a lot. Thus, your dressing, make up, neatness and all that is noticed at first sight. Your dress should not be too tight or too loose, it should just fit. It must be official, appropriate (for the particular role you are vying for) and professional. People normally say, ‘you are addressed the way you dress’ meaning your appearance can go a long way to tell much about you. This does not connote that you should wear sophisticated clothes but do well to give your best shot at it. Your perfume should be very light and okay, not one that takes over the whole room. Your shoes should be neatly polished and your attire neatly ironed. Your make up should also be light and okay. It should not be overly done as it may take up all the attention. In all, look professional.

Also, your timing should be checked. One important tip to making a very good first impression is making it a point to report to the venue of your interview on time. You should be there at least 10-15 minutes before the time scheduled. This gives the impression that you can be reliable and prompt at carrying out your duties. You arriving late for an interview is a very big red flag you are raising to your employers. It means you are unreliable and cannot demonstrate promptness in everything you do.
Moreover, act confidently. Demonstrating confidence makes you seem up and doing and knowing what you are about. Enter the interview room with your head up with a beautiful smile, greet and offer a firm handshake. As much as possible do not carry your phone to the interview room but if you do, remember to put it off or on dead silence in order to avoid any interruptions. More importantly, practice very well before attending the interview. Get someone or people who is/are highly intellectual, get some sample questions and try out some rehearsals a couple of times before attending the interview. This may help boost your confidence level and make you more relaxed. In answering the questions posed to you, do not fret.

Do not act confused and not knowing what to say. Confidently attempt the question if even you have no idea about it. You may not get that answer right but your confidence may impress.
To make a good impression at an interview, you should carry along with you, a portfolio. That is, hard copies of your resume, cover letters, certificates and others that are relevant for your application.

You must also have much insight in the position you are applying for and the company at large. Carry out much research and get your facts right. This will make you look ready for the job. You should also look out for the people who will sit on the panel to interview you before attending the interview. You may go through their LinkedIn accounts to get their names right and at least get an idea of who they are before attending the interview.

Lastly, know why you are there. Many people fail to precisely state why they are at the interview. You should be able to tell the interviewer how your expertise could contribute to the success of the company. In short, your answer should go beyond ‘I am here for an interview’
In conclusion, you should be kind and give pleasant remarks. Do not be rude even if a comment passed by the interviewer does not go down well with you. Leaving a very good impression at an interview is a step closer to your hiring therefore give your best shot it.
