    The Case for Not Putting Your Job Search on Hold Over the Holidays

  • I love my new career and thank you for your services. I found most valuable the mock interview session and your invaluable insight of my strengths and opportunities that followed. It improved my confidence tremendously throughout my interview process and, without doubt, helped me get the position and salary I was looking for. Thanks again.
    M.B., Banking Executive
  • Summary:If you want to stick out in a crowd you must do what everybody else is not doing. As many people put their career search on hold for the holiday season it is the best time for you to get your name out to prospective employers. Statistically speaking, January is the busiest hiring month of the year. Here are some tips from Lauren Milligan to help you start the new year with a new career.

    Lauren Milligan, Career Advancement Coach with ResuMAYDAY, loves to solve run-of-the-mill problems with counter-intuitive, disruptive solutions. Earlier this year she was ‘booed’ while on stage, speaking at a state conference of vocational counselors. The topic was how vocational counselors should advise their clients to explain job gaps. While she had never been booed before, she remained steadfast and unflappable. And then she doubled-down on her advice, saying the same to an even larger group of vocational counselors at their national conference in Pittsburgh. Was her advice counter-intuitive? It was. Was her advice correct? It was! Those who had originally disagreed with her actually waited in line to thank her and ask for more advice.

     

    But Lauren’s advice and tips have nothing to do with her. Everything she talks about is meant to get job seekers in front of the right employers with the right message. As a resume writer and coach, Lauren’s specialty reaches to every area of a job search. Whether you need a resume from scratch, need help preparing for a stressful interview or are just unsure how to handle tough job search situations, having Lauren on your side is like having Jake Arietta pitch in a high school game. You got this.  

     

    Lauren knows how to get job seekers from nervous and unprepared to excited and eager about their job search. With the holiday season right around the corner, she put together a few tips for maintaining your job search, and even capitalizing on the season:

     

    1. Numbers don’t lie: Statistically speaking, January is the busiest hiring month of the year, and this remained true even through the recession. And yes, we said, ‘hiring’, not interviewing. That means those January new hires were interviewed in November and December. Even if normal business slows down, hiring does not come to a halt. Keep your September and October momentum going through the end of the year.
    2. Fast-track to the decision makers: You have a much better chance of getting in touch with Human Resources and Hiring Managers in December. Gate keepers and other ‘human obstacles’ are either occupied on finishing up end-of-year projects or are out of the office. Take advantage of that! Even if you already applied online, follow up over the phone to discuss the company’s 2017 needs. Be the one who was in the right place at the right time.
    3. Don’t turn down a seasonal opportunity: If you are in-between jobs, seasonal work is a great option. Temporary work can lead to permanent opportunities, for those who stand out for the right reasons. Plus, temporary work allows you to try out new jobs in a relatively low-risk situation. You can also gain new, valuable skills to add to your resume!
    4. Holiday parties can be great networking events: Did your neighbors invite you to their annual holiday get-together? Go, even if you don’t know anyone. Go, even if you’re not in the most jovial, holiday mood. Introduce yourself to someone you haven’t yet met, and start a conversation. You don’t want to turn their party into a career counseling session, but there’s nothing wrong with letting other people know that you’re looking for your next opportunity. Every person you meet has their own network and their own resources. The only way to tap into them is to put out feelers. Be bold and creative!
    5. Job Seekers don’t need slipper socks. If you have a job seeker in your life, give that person a holiday gift that will assist in their search. A professional resume writing session or a career coaching session could go a long way towards that person’s success. Pay the membership fees to a relevant professional association, or the tuition fees for skills-building classes or certifications. There’s no shortage of career-boosting gifts for someone who is currently on the market.  

     

    Looking for a job can be frustrating and isolating, to the point that job seekers might be tempted to give it up for a few weeks. Hopefully these tips will give job seekers an end-of-the year jolt. Stay positive, ask for help, and never give up.

    Breakthrough communications technologies for assisted care facilities

  • CAREQ Emergency Notification Service provides administrators of care facilities (such as assisted living / nursing homes) with communications technologies that empower them with unprecedented speed and resources to focus on the safety and well-being of their residents, not only in emergency situations, but in day-to-day operations as well. With CAREQ-ENS, care administrators are best able to meet the challenges, responsibilities and expectations of those who depend on them most.
  • Summary:“The comprehensive messaging and tracking capabilities of CARE-ENS gives our assisted living facility a level of emergency and operational speed and visibility unlike anything we have ever seen before”.

     Thuh Company proudly announces the availability of CAREQ-ENS Enhanced Notification Service for care facilities.

     Thuh Company, a proven leader in emergency communications technologies announces its newest product, CAREQ-ENS Enhanced Notification Service.   CAREQ-ENS automates enhanced communication services for organizations such as assisted living facilities and nursing homes that are directly responsible for the care and well-being of others.

     For many healthcare organizations, traditional communications and practices often rely on manual procedures and hardcopy information compounded by outdated technologies that can significantly delay timely decisions and actions.  Those challenges are further magnified in emergency circumstances.

     CAREQ-ENS was born out of discussions between healthcare administrators from assisted living and nursing home facilities combined with experienced fire marshal personnel to identify ways to improve the unique needs for overall emergency communications for these organizations.  Not only are emergency procedures for care-givers impacted by these challenges, but daily, ongoing operational communications are affected as well.  CAREQ-ENS addresses all of these needs using cutting-edge communications and data technologies that are already in use for emergency responders across North America to ensure the reliability and uptime that are required by the care services marketplace.

     The CAREQ Enhanced Notification Services provide care facilities with multi-level communications capabilities to:

    • execute an emergency response plan with unprecedented speed and efficiency from anywhere at anytime

    • communicate with all staff or specific staff groups in a controlled and efficient manner combined with built-in tracking of responses and availability of staff

    • select multiple methods to communicate with staff, families and community partners via text, phone, email or all three — depending on the mode of communications that is most convenient for each contact

    • easily send essential non-emergency messages to staff members as part of regular facilities operations (e.g. procedural changes, shift assignments, special notices)

    • readily customize communications to meet specific needs, saving time, effort and resources

    • store vital documents and checklists electronically such as pre-incident plans, blueprints, muster points and other critical information that is readily available at any time online

    • provide post-incident information for management review and reporting

       CAREQ-ENS is designed to be accessed directly from anywhere using any device using standard Internet browser technology.  No special equipment is required and the system supports all types of phones (both cell and landlines) and other mobile devices. 

      There are few jobs as important as caring for our most vulnerable communities.  Maximizing their safety in their “homes” through effective communication and operations is vitally important.  CAREQ-ENS provides administrators with tools that empower them with more time and more resources to focus on the people who rely on them…the people who need them most.
