Juggling Multiple Job Offers

With many graduates walking out from school every year and entering corporate firms and agencies looking for a job, you are up for a big competition. This is one of the common problems of new graduates. It doesn’t matter if you live in Ghana, Africa or Jakarta, Indonesia or Las Vegas, Nevada. The fact that many graduates are looking for a job is a big challenged. 

 Another one, albeit not considered a problem but more an opportunity, is to receive more than one job offers. It can be pretty flattering but a little bit pressuring as well. What do you do? Which one would you take when both offer good benefits for you?

Westhill Consulting and Employment has faced a lot of these questions before from new graduates who are having a hard time choosing among so many job offers. Well, first of all, you have to calm your nerves. Instead of throwing complaints on which one to choose, try to focus and review both sides. You have a choice to make and you'll be able to compare and contrast the jobs to determine which is the best fit.

The following strategies will help you to make the best of this challenging and exciting situation. 

1. Express enthusiasm without saying “yes.” 
Any time you receive an attractive offer, express your high level of excitement and appreciation for the offer. Clarify when the employer needs to know your decision. Resist the impulse to accept on the spot if you have other attractive options to consider.

2. Gather all data. 
If you receive multiple offers within the same deadline period for acceptance, your task will simply be to decide which option is preferable. Make sure you have all the information necessary about both options to make a rational choice. If not, reach out to the employer and seek clarification about any lingering uncertainties regarding benefits, advancement, working conditions, job content, supervision or any other questions you may have.

3. Negotiate the decision time frame. 
A more challenging scenario is when you have an offer from one employer, and you believe that another equally or more attractive offer might be forthcoming from another organization. In these cases, if you aren't comfortable accepting the firm offer, you should attempt to bring the time windows for decision-making together. One way to line up the  is to create a reasonable delay with the first employer who has made the offer. For example, you might ask for the opportunity to meet with staff at your level if you weren't able to do so through the screening process.

Finding Experience Even When You Are Inexperienced

Many new graduates are scratching their heads when they are told in an interview that they are not qualified due to inexperience. Since they are fresh grads, it should be understandable if they have no experience, right? They need experience to work but cannot work without experience. Now, how can we solve this?

Westhill Consulting and Employment states that it would still be possible to find experience when you are inexperienced.

1. OJT

One of the best sources of experience is to get a job internship in the industry you are interested to work in. There are companies which offer on-the-job for incoming graduating students during summers. You will probably start getting coffees or run errand but you shouldn’t have any complaints. While it would probably be a long way to reach CEO, almost everyone experiences this kind of phase. Besides, you can still learn by observing

2. Volunteer

To those who hadn’t had a chance to get to an internship programme while still in college (yes, there are colleges who do not have internship on their curriculum, take for example those in Jakarta, Indonesia), you can start off by volunteering to your field. Many nurses, in order to get enough experiences undergo volunteer programs in hospitals and clinics for some months before finally finding a salary-paying job.

3. Setting up your own business

You could provide advice, sell products online or chase advertising revenue. Even if you don’t make much money, you’ll develop great networks and an attractive CV.

4. Try casual jobs

Any job can help you so don’t be too proud. You can apply as one of staff crew in McDonalds for a few months. This way, you can toughen some skills you have. In terms of communication, you can talk to the customers and engage them. If you are finding experience for accounting, you can count and take data of the profit you have gotten for that day. If you are a graduate of Marketing, you can find ways on how they can gain more customers. These casual jobs are a den of many other jobs

5. Extra-Curricular Activities

Getting involved in groups and societies will enrich your CV but also open doors. For example, joining the wine society at university could give you access to professionals in viticulture and provide you with good references and reviews; sales and numerous other fields.

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.

How to Manage Your Time

Many of us are not able to push our productivity efforts to the limit. We know we still have something to show and give in terms of our work but time always seems to run so fast. At the end of the day, we are left with a lot more on our plate than what we have hoped for. 

Westhill Consulting & Employment, a well-established online source for the best and the most suitable career tips have this list of pointers on how you can manage your time wisely:

1. Know Your Priorities
You should know which ones are your top priority and the most important thing to finish first considering the given time frame of your task. If something looks like it will take less than two minutes – get it done straight away.  But do not allow the smaller issues to delay working out the big problems, which will only get bigger while you spend time sorting out the smaller ones.

2. Plan Productively
Use the most productive time of the day to your advantage. In a survey conducted to one of our partner companies in Jakarta, Indonesia, many employees consider the morning right after they arrived as the best time to work but there are also some people who would need to organize their thoughts first before they can dig in. Concentration level can change on the different times of the day. Decide when you feel most productive and use this time to tackle the big tasks.

3. Don’t Be Afraid to Delegate
It is not possible to do everything on your own. That is why there are different members of people in your team. You shouldn’t be thinking of their complaints especially if you are in the position to give them their designated task. First decide if a set task can only be achieved by you; if not, transfer it to someone who is equally capable.

4. Keep Notes
Notes can keep you organize. At the end of your day, you can list the things you need to do the next day so as not to forget anything. The next day, you can just review it and follow the written outline. It would also be advantageous on unexpected leaves. The note that you have written can inform your colleagues in case they would have to do your pending tasks.

5. Find Time For yourself
Even the most organized worker can find their train of thought interrupted by well-meaning colleagues. If you are being bombarded with calls, e-mails and questions, make it clear to your colleagues that you are going to step out and deal with your own material before you can become distracted. This is perfectly OK and many companies have formal leave to grant “Me Time” to employees.
