Get Ahead

Who would not want a promotion among us? I am sure than anyone of us would want to get ahead of others in a healthy competition. Westhill Consulting and Employment, an Australian based employment consulting company recognizes these needs.

Workers seeking to get ahead in their careers need to rely less on their talent and their experience and more on personal brand and relationship with their boss, especially in cities of developed and developing countries like America, Jakarta, Indonesia, Tokyo, Japan and Singapore which focus on their employees for economic development.

1. Diligence
- If you want to get ahead, you need to take on projects outside of your job description. If you see a new opportunity that your company could take advantage of, or you see something that can be improved, come up with a solution. Review, do research, develop a presentation outlining the opportunity, and present it to your management. Before you engage in any entrepreneurial initiatives, of course, you have to master your current role and prove yourself — because no one will invest in you unless they trust you first.

2. Engage in activities outside of the office. 
- Extra outside projects and roles and learning opportunities can enhance their reputation at work. You can join professional organizations and social groups to expand both your network and knowledge of your industry and profession. 

3. Think twice before you friend your manager on Facebook. 
- Most managers don’t want to add their employees as contacts because they want to separate their personal and professional lives. Before you decide to friend them, think about the type of relationship you have with them and ask them what their comfort level is. You might have a lot of complaints filed at you when you cross the line. If you tend to share personal matters with your manager at the office, they would probably be more inclined to have the same relationship on Facebook.

4. Develop your soft skills. 
- We found that managers, and even recruiters, value soft skills over hard skills: The most important soft skills for employees who want to get promoted are the ability to prioritize work, communicate effectively, and work well in a team. If you want to develop these skills, you need to actively pursue situations where you can both interact with other people and get feedback so you can improve. 

5. Become a subject matter expert. 
- If you want to stand out at work and gain visibility and recognition, you need to be an expert on a particular topic. Don’t be a fraud as you know many things but focus on a specific matter and master it.

Pursuit of Happiness

We always find happiness anywhere in the world. Psychologists also say that happy employees are more productive, more creative and less likely to leave. It doesn’t have to cost a fortune to create a fun environment at your workplace. If you embody your ideal corporate culture and integrate joy and laughter into your daily routine, your employees will follow. If you are a business owner, it is therefore wise to do things to benefit your employees and make them happy. If you are an employee, find ways to make your stay in the company a happy one to ease the stress in your workplace.

As a company ourselves, Westhill Consulting and Employment also face the same challenge in maintaining happy people as there are so many personal and business reasons for them not to. Fortunately, we have some steps that we follow that respond to this issues.

For Employers
1. Lead by Example
As we all know, employees look up to you. If you are too serious, your employees may hesitate to smile in front of you, let alone interact and laugh with you. They may feel the need to be serious all the time. Although being serious is also important, loose your collar a little for you to let happy vibes around you. Add a little self-depreciating humor when it is appropriate to help your employees view you as human and approachable. A little fraud smile will also do despite the pressure. Who knows, they may see your odd smile and lift their hearts to you a little.

2. Embody Optimism
Staff meetings can quickly become monotonous. Use each meeting as an opportunity to encourage positive team dynamics. When we are conducting a meeting with our partners once in Jakarta, Indonesia, we were surprised when the manager presiding the meeting encouraged us all to play a charade first before starting the meeting. Those 15 minutes of laughter are enough to bring out positivity around us even when what we are discussing may be a little too critical.

3. Celebrate
There is no harm if you reward yourself and your employees once in a while. Recognize and acknowledge your employees successes, no matter how small. Staff celebrations don’t need to be fancy, planned or expensive. Acknowledgement can be as simple as sharing one team member’s accomplishment during a staff meeting.

Employees:
1. Give a happy “Hello” in the morning with a smile. Psychologists say it is contagious.
2. Learn the Art of Small Talk. Review what you learn about your colleague and engage him in little talks or even if it’s a general statement like the weather or how nice her skirt is.
3. Avoid gossip.
4. Pretend your kids are watching when dealing with a hard colleague which you have misunderstanding with.
5. Retail Emails and Calls Promptly. It is to show that these people who took time to email you are also important to you.

Introverts: Why They Shouldn’t Be Underestimated

Are you an introvert? If you are not, then, perhaps someone you know is? Studies show that one-third to one-half of the population is introvert. All of us have introvert and extrovert personality within us but experts say that one or the other is dominating in each individual. 

Some people would think that introverts have no hope of finding an honest job since they only keep things to themselves and too shy to face people. However though, many experts in a study held in Jakarta, Indonesia say that there are better chances for introverts to pass and interview as they are better listener which many employers really need from their employees. Moreover, they can switch back and forth between introversion and extroversion depending on the environment.

Introverts have become the headlines – albeit ironically since they do not want to get attention for themselves- to many major media reviews and press releases. We at Westhill Consulting and Employment also became intrigue in this personality that we also made our own research regarding this.

Brian Little, author of Me, Myself and Us: The Science of Personality and Well- Being said, “Being a high self-monitor, a standup chameleon as I like to call them, that can shift positions to suit the situation is most effective in the early stages of entrepreneurship”. His reviews and research has been too intriguing that we cannot help but make an article about it. He points out the introverts’ following traits:

1. Introverts Should Avoid Coffee
- According to Little, introverts are more receptive to brain stimulation, and too much of it can actually deter from clear and effective thinking. Similarly, being in a noisy, crowded environment also can over stimulate an introvert's brain activity. They do their best work under relaxed circumstances.

2. Introverts Works Well with Extroverts
- Know what they say how different objects attract? The law of Action and Interaction by Newton also applies to people who are introverts and extroverts. A common misconception about introverts and extroverts is that they speak different languages, especially in workplace scenarios. "There are exceptions," Little points out. "When an extrovert and an introvert engage in conversation, the introvert takes on the role of interviewer." This can actually lead to an effective way of sharing information and communicating.

3. Introverts can be Extrovert
- Now many people would think that this is a scam that many introverts do to fool people. They may also be a lot of confusion but the truth is according to Little, Adults are not fixed into just one personality paradigm and have the flexibility to "act out of character," especially when a job or project requires them to take on a certain role. Oftentimes introverts take on the role of a pseudo-extrovert in order to engage in highly social situations that frequently occur in professions like public relations, communications, and marketing.

Things every job seeker should have

Job seeking is tough and nerve-wracking. Here are things you need to have that make it easier to find a job by Westhill Consulting & Employment is based in Australia. It is a well-established career tips and information for Ozzie’s website that specializes in providing information, advice and guidance to help people make realistic choices about finding work in South East Asian countries such as KL Malaysia, Bangkok Thailand, Jakarta Indonesia, Beijing China and many more.

A custom-made resume:  Over 90% of the resumes HR receives are not customized for specific jobs. That is how they do the first round of cuts. Canned resume = no additional in process. They don’t want anybody who obviously doesn’t put forth any effort. A customized resume is without question essential.

A web presence: You need to have a LinkedIn profile and it should be always updated. You possibly will have to have a Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, or Instagram account, be subjected to your industry. You might as well really take into consideration a personal website if you don’t already have one. At the very least, you need to be at least able to be seen – and your social media profiles must be clean and mirror the very best description of you. Always review and keep your profile posted. Employers are going to Google you, and if they won’t be able to acquire anything, they might just transfer to the next person. Not having a web occurrence these days is like not existing. But always be warmed of scams on the internet.

A decent picture of yourself: Employers want to identify what you look like and whether they are fond of what you look like. And no, opposing to general belief, it is not illegal to make hiring decisions based on physical appearance. Your LinkedIn profile should have a pleasant, professional looking headshot that is not too close, not blurred, and doesn’t have someone else cropped out of it. Hire a photographer, and take a decent picture.

A wingman: Usually, a wingman is someone you carry along when trying to pick up girls. In the job search, the term is applied to your sounding board friend. You must have a friend to check your resume and cover letters, practice interview with you, and inform you if what you’re wearing looks unwise. This individual must be smart and cruelly honest. You need to have at least one friend who is.

A good interview outfit: At all times, you must have an outfit ready. You don’t want to have to go clothes shopping at the last minute. Clean shoes, pressed pants, tights with no runs. One must generally blunder on the side of formality for the interview; however some research into the company discernment wouldn’t hurt. When in doubt, go more conservative like wear black, grey, or blue. Choose colors carefully.

Stand Out, Never Stand Down

Equally as important as learning how to get a job is learning how to keep one. Working is much like dating: Keep the relationship exciting or your employer might get a wandering eye for greener pastures. You need to stay at the top of your game to prove to your employer that she was right to pick you in the first place. You can stand out at work by being a stand-up person. Be honest, act with integrity and treat everyone with kindness and respect. Westhill Consulting and Employment in Jakarta has recognized the need of many employees to stand out among colleagues. You cannot expect any development when you continue to stand down to others. 

1. Make a habit of introducing yourself. Whenever you walk into a meeting, go up to someone you don’t know and introduce yourself. People with the confidence to do this stand out. Work out a few questions to ask to get to know people, and you’ll quickly boost your visibility. More people you know more chances of being popular. 

2. Sit next to new people. As an extension of tip one, if there’s an opportunity to sit next to new people at a meeting, a talk, at lunch, on a training course – you should take it. Whether they may be from different nations like Jakarta, Indonesia, Ghana, Africa or Tokyo, Japan, treat them with respect. Often the shared experience creates an opportunity to build a relationship. Not only does this again demonstrate your confidence, but it’s also a great way to show senior managers you take an interest in other people and have the skills to develop a widespread network. If you can show that, it will be noted.

3. Be first to act. If you’ve heard someone ask for a volunteer, or open the floor for questions after a presentation, you’ve likely experienced the awkward silence that follows. But by being the person to stand up and volunteer to be the one at the flipchart or taking the action points, or by having a question ready to start the ball rolling, you show you’re willing to get into action when the structured part of the meeting stops – something senior managers equate with leadership ability and the ability to make a career leap successfully.

4. Smile.
Even when it's the last thing you feel like doing, still smile -- and others will smile with you. Instead of having complaints with the system or any negativity in your workplace, smile and treat them with optimism.

5. Seek opportunities to learn new skills and maintain old ones.
Don't make the mistake of becoming a dinosaur; keep yourself marketable by remaining current in your profession. Review what you need to improve on and learn where you need to excel more.
