Deciding if a career change is for you

While losing weight and quitting smoking remain among the most popular New Year’s resolutions each year, many more people resolve to change ca- reers at the dawn of a new year. Changing careers is a significant step, especially for men and women who are firmly established in their fields. A career change can be just as rewarding and life-changing as losing weight or quitting smoking, and there are some things professionals might want to consider before resolving to change careers in the new year.

Changing careers vs. switching jobs

Changing careers and switching jobs are not the same thing, and some people may want the former while others may only be in need of the latter. A full-fledged career change may require returning to school and a willingness to start from the bottom. A job change typically allows professionals to stay

in their fields and move on to another position, whether it’s with their existing employer or with another company.

Career trajectory

The direction of a person’s career may also influence whether or not they want to make a career change. Established professionals mulling a career change should consider their willingness to start anew. Many mid-career pro- fessionals have worked for years to establish themselves in their fields and within their companies. Switching careers does not mean that experience and reputation is invaluable, but neither attribute may carry as much weight in a different line of work, and that can affect career trajectory and future earnings.

Effects on others

Established professionals must also consider the effect that a career change

may have on their families. Married mid-career professionals should discuss

– Delphos Herald • Employment Guide • February 2019 Deciding if a career change is

changing careers with their spouse, and even their children if the kids are old enough to understand. Discuss the pros and cons of changing careers and the impact that making such a change may have on your family’s daily life. Will the family have to move? Will the family lifestyle change dramatically, if at all? Spouses and children may feel better about the change knowing they were involved in the decision, and talking things through with family may help work- ing professionals determine if changing careers is the best decision for them.

Long-term goals

Long-term goals are another thing to consider before making a career change. That’s especially true for mid- or late-career professionals who may already have made significant progress toward achieving their long-term goals. Discuss long-term goals with your spouse or significant other and how chang- ing careers might affect those goals. Long-term goals can change, and while the ability to realize those goals might not weigh heavily in your decision re- garding a career change, understanding how such a change might affect your retirement or other late-life plans can only help you make the most informed decision possible. Many people resolve to change careers at the dawn of a new year. But such a decision requires the careful consideration of a host of factors.

How to ask for a letter of recommendation

Knowledge, skills and personality can get students far, but having the right

people in their corners can open doors for new opportunities that students might otherwise never have considered. Perhaps this is why recommendations are so coveted when applying to schools. Asking for a letter of recommendation is something that should be done with forethought. The correct approach and proper timing can mean the difference be- tween receiving a recommendation or not.

Who to ask

The first step for students is to decide who they want to ask for a recommenda-

tion. Select those teachers who know you well or can validate how you performed or improved in class. Opt for a teacher whose class you recently took so the recom- mendation reflects the student you are today and not the student you might have been when you were younger. It can also help to ask for a recommendation from teachers or staff who have sufficient experience. Their input may carry more weight than someone whose ca- reer is less accomplished. A well-established teacher who leads a class that per- tains to your academic goals is a good fit. Remember to consider the requirements of a college or university as well. Schools frequently ask for recommendations from specific people, such as a teach- er in a certain subject.

Ask early

Teachers may be inundated with college letter recommendation requests

around application deadlines and at the end of semesters. It’s better to leave plenty of time than to put teachers under pressure. The same rule applies to anyone else you’re asking to write you a recommendation.

Request in person

Underscore the importance of the recommendation by making it a personal request. Schedule an appointment with the individual and discuss why you be- lieve he or she would be the right person to provide the recommendation. Remind the person of your attributes and point out something that exemplifies your skills. Speaking face-to-face shows respect and gives you the advantage to make your points personally, rather than through email.

– Delphos Herald • Employment Guide • February 2019 How to ask for a letter

Make the process easier Choose wisely when selecting teachers to write letters of recom- mendation.

Provide all of the necessary items to help the person along. This can include a brief résumé, academic progress report, required forms, and so on. Also offer any college- or employer-directed requests. As the deadline looms, offer concise reminders that you will need the recommendation. Offer to pick it up personally. Make copies or scan and save the original just in case a mix-up in the admissions office occurs. Recommendations are a key part of landing a job or being offered acceptance into a college or university. Asking the right people early will translate into recom- mendations that paint an accurate picture of applicants.

How to ace job interviews when switching careers

Millions of people change careers every year. Whereas professionals may have once worked for the same company for the majority, if not the entirety, of their careers, nowadays it’s not uncommon for men and women to change jobs several times before reaching retirement. Changing jobs and changing careers are not necessarily the same thing. Professionals mulling a career change will have to consider a host of factors that men and women looking to change jobs may never have to contemplate. Such factors may include returning to school and lifestyle changes designed to make living on less income more feasible. Professionals changing careers may also need to develop a strategy for handling job interviews. When changing jobs as opposed to careers, profes- sionals can draw attention to their résumés, essentially letting their experience speak for itself. But while experience is often a feather in a job candidate’s cap, professionals changing careers may need to focus more on their futures than their pasts when interviewing for a new career.

• Draw attention to those skills that will apply to your new career. All of your

experience and skills likely won’t transfer to your new career, but that does not mean you’re going in with an empty briefcase. Make a list of your most trans- ferable skills, and develop an interview strategy that highlights those skills and

explains how they can be applied in both the near future and over the course of your new career.

• Use your contacts to your advantage. Even if much of your experience

won’t transfer to your new career, your professional network might still be valu- able to a prospective employer. The longer you have been working the larger your professional network likely is, so highlight those contacts in your interview and illustrate how you can put them to good use should you be hired.

• Showcase how you have adapted in the past. Much of the business world

moves at a breakneck pace. That pace has become even faster thanks to ad- vancements in technology that routinely affect how businesses operate. Even if you have never before changed careers, that does not mean you have not adapted to change. Make a list of the changes your employers have instituted

throughout your career, highlighting how you adapted to those changes and benefitted from them in their aftermath. • Remain positive throughout the interview. Even if you are changing ca- reers because you’re unhappy and/or unfulfilled in your present line of work, avoid badmouthing that industry and your past employers. Doing so will only reflect negatively on you and raise a red flag with prospective employers. In- stead, explain your reasons for pursuing a new career path in terms that excite potential employers about your candidate. The decision to change careers can induce both excitement and anxiety. Maintaining a positive attitude and employing various strategies when inter- viewing with prospective employers can help make the transition to a new ca- reer go smoothly.

Truck driver shortage affecting business

While traversing the nation’s high- ways, drivers may not realize they are in the company of people who help keep the country’s economy flowing smooth- ly. The various trucks seen on the road- way are crucial economic components, as are the drivers who toil hours on end behind the wheel. As vital as they are, truck drivers are now in short supply, with some citing an aging workforce, high turnover rates, in- creased freight demand, and “lifestyle priorities” that can make other industries seem more attractive to would-be driv- ers.

The economic advisor Morgan Stanley reports that about 75 percent of freight in the United States is moved over the nation’s roadways by the rough- ly three million truckers. The American Trucking Associations says that about an additional 50,000 drivers are needed to meet deficits, particularly in the long- haul sector of the industry. If the trucking shortage goes unaddressed, industries could falter and deliveries may be late. In addition, rising costs of transporting goods by freight companies may be passed down to consumers. Industry experts fear the shortage may almost

triple by the year 2026. Analysts say this problem has been festering for about 15 years. Howev- er, the recession that began in 2008 masked the issue, and when the North American economy strengthened once again, the cracks in the system became more apparent. The trucking lifestyle isn’t attracting millennials and the in-

coming Generation Z individuals who are interested in a work-life balance, continues the ATA. If consumers are wondering why prices on certain goods have steadily risen, they may have trucker shortages to blame. Transportation costs have been problematic for companies such as PepsiCo, Halliburton, Hasbro, and

Tyson Foods, just to name a few. Tyson has said freight costs spiked by an esti- mated $200 million in 2018. Experienced truckers who are inter- ested in finding work or individuals new to this employment sector may find that odds of getting gainful employment are in their favor. The demand for drivers has resulted in freight companies offer- ing higher salaries as well as signing bonuses for qualified drivers. Trucker compensation has risen as much as 12 percent a year in recent years, accord- ing to Bob Costello, chief economist at the ATA. That’s a considerable increase in wages compared to other sectors, which have barely budged recently. Ad- ditionally, while current U.S. regulations restrict commercial drivers license-hold- ing drivers from operating across state lines until they are 21 years of age, the introduced DRIVE-Safe Act would es- tablish an apprenticeship program for individuals under age 21 who hold a CDL to prepare them for interstate com- merce. Truck driver shortages are affecting businesses. However, for those inter- ested in a becoming truckers, there has never been a better time to sign on.

Vocational schooling can pave the way to high-paying jobs

Many students believe that the next natural step after graduating from high school is to go off to college. Secondary education has become such a common transition that many parents begin saving for college tuition as soon as their children are born. Although college can be the next chapter in a student’s education, many teenagers still choose to attend trade school. Television personality Mike Rowe says the country is in the midst of a skilled labor shortage because workers lack the necessary training to fill the hundreds of thou-

sands of available jobs. Lack of information may drive the notion that trade jobs are nothing more than a backup plan if college doesn’t pan out. However, by realizing that trade jobs, along with short-term vocational training, is a smart investment — and eventually a lucrative career choice — attitudes about trade schools and labor-inten- sive jobs may shift. A great number of college graduates enter the workforce with degrees that may not help them land jobs. And these students typically carry thousands of dollars in tuition debt. Many college grads are underemployed and working in jobs that aren’t even in their fields of study. Career and technical schools help students develop specialized skills that make graduates immediately marketable in their chosen fields, and trade salaries can be very competitive. The following are some of the fastest-growing and highest-paying trade careers to consider, based on data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and Forbes magazine.

• Construction manager: Construction professionals with great organizational and

communication skills can enjoy high earning potential as construction managers. Ex- pected growth of this career over the next 10 years is 5 percent. The average income of a construction manager is $87,000. However, with a top-end hourly pay of around $75 per hour, it’s easy for managers to earn into six figures. • Elevator installer and repairer: This career is listed as a top-earner. These em- ployees can earn anywhere from $74,000 to $105,000 per year. Elevators are in de- mand as urban centers increase, so this career has staying potential.

• Rotary drill operator: The oil and gas industry relies on rotary drill operators to

extract oil or natural gas from underground sources. Salaries for these jobs can range from $30 to $40 per hour.

February 2019 • Employment Guide • Delphos Herald – Vocational schooling can pave the way to

• Dental hygienist: Cleaning teeth and inspecting mouths for disease is an impor- tant role. Job growth is still hovering around 20 percent, and hygienists can expect to earn up to $98,000.

• Electricians and plumbers: Electricians and plumbers are continually in demand.

With a short amount of trade school and apprenticeship, it’s possible to earn up to $90,000 per year.

These are just a few of the many skilled professions that vocational schools pre- pare their students for. Scholarships and funding programs are available to help make vocational training an affordable possibility.

Things to look for in a new job

– Delphos Herald • Employment Guide • February 2019 Things to look for in a

want down the road. • Work/life balance: Before begin- ning your search for a new job, think about why you want to switch careers or companies. Long hours often leads to burnout. If you’re looking for a new job because you’re burned out, try to find a job that affords you a better work/ life balance. A study from the Happi- ness Research Institute in Copenha-

gen found that, with the curious excep- tion of people who work more than 55 hours per week, stress rises accord- ingly with the numbers of hours worked each week. Keep that in mind if your

goal is to find a job that affords you a better work/life balance.

• Satisfaction: When attempting to

achieve a better work/life balance, it

can be easy to overlook satisfaction

Change plays a big role as people ring in a new year. At the dawn of a new year, some people resolve to live healthier in the months ahead while others might make financial resolutions in an attempt to improve their bottom lines. The decision to change jobs is an- other popular resolution at the dawn of a new year. Professionals change jobs for various reasons. But regardless of what’s behind a career change, many people can benefit by looking for things in a new job that can make them happy both professionally and personally.

• Salary: Of course everyone would

love to earn more money when chang- ing jobs, but there is more to changing jobs than just improving your bottom line. As you begin your job search, con- sider how much you currently earn and if that allows you to live a life you love. If so, don’t overemphasize finding a new job that pays considerably more than your currently earn. On the flip side, young professionals who want to start a family in the years ahead should con- sider the costs associated with such a decision and how the salaries they earn at their next jobs may affect what they

at work in exchange for more time at home. But studies have shown that feeling satisfied by what you do can have a profound impact on your overall happiness. It’s possible to find an en- gaging career that still affords you time away from work, and such a career can ultimately pave the way toward a hap- pier life. • Commute: Bending over back- wards simply to get to work and then get home from work can have an incredibly negative impact on your life. A study from the Office of National Statistics in the United Kingdom found that com- muters, especially those who spend between 60 and 90 minutes commuting to work, have lower life satisfaction and lower levels of happiness compared to people who don’t commute. Before ac- cepting a job offer, estimate your com- mute time to and from the new office and try to determine the impact of that commute on your quality of life. Many people aspire to find a new job at the dawn of a new year. Job seekers should consider a host of fac- tors before switching jobs to make sure they make the best decisions.

Top tips for a successful job interview

Understand the company and what it does. This will be a very important fac- tor to the employer. Make sure to research the company as part of your job interview preparation. You want to show the employer that you have a real interest in working for them and are not just looking to get a job. Come prepared to be interviewed. Learn the types of questions that are gen- erally posed in job interviews and think about what specific questions the inter- viewer might ask you. Listen and answer questions thoroughly. It’s easy to find yourself thinking ahead in an interview, but the interviewer may be able to tell you are not listening or fully engaged. Try to stay in the moment and really listen to the interviewer’s ques- tions. Possess career goals and direction. Know your career “roadmap” and be able to describe the path you‘ve taken to where you are now and where you hope that path will lead. Understand your strengths. Know what you are really best at, whether it be working with the public, crunching numbers or using a particular application. Know what accomplishments you’ve made on the job or in your personal life. You want to be able to share stories about the successes you’ve had, whether they were in previous jobs (consistently meeting or exceeding sales quotas), in school (getting on the Dean’s List or lettering in a sport), or in your personal life (becoming an Eagle Scout or finishing a road race with a personal-best time). Convey your soft skills such as the ability to work in a team, problem-solving skills, and being dependable, organized, proactive, flexible, and resourceful. Be open to learning new things. Hiring managers like to know that you won’t be resistant to change in the way you may have done things before, such as using a new technical tool, software application or process. Demonstrate leadership abilities. Show that you have the ability to take charge by mentioning situations in which you have taken the initiative, volunteered for an assignment, assumed responsibility for achieving goals or results, led a group or team of people or delegated well. Be likeable. Obviously, you want to present your best self in the interview by

Team Leader Maintenance/Tool Room CQT Kennedy LLC, a leader in tool storage systems, has a career

being polite and not doing things like interrupting the interviewer or being sarcastic. Employers want to see that you are warm, friendly, easygoing and cooperative with others. Display confidence about who you are and what you bring to the table. The interviewer will expect you to be nervous, but based on your demeanor and your responses to their questions, they will still want to see that you are confident (but not arrogant). Be aware of your body language. Sit up straight but try to relax. Maintain eye contact with the interviewer, avoid fidgeting and don’t forget to smile! Of course, it goes without saying that you should make sure your overall physical appearance is neat, clean and appropriately attired based on the job and the company.

Know what YOU are looking for and have questions of your own. Here are five “must-have” questions that you should consider posing to the hiring manager in

an interview:

  • 1. What created the need to fill this position?

  • 2. What do you feel are the key skills required to succeed in this job?

  • 3. What are the three biggest challenges I would face in the first six months?

  • 4. What has to happen in the first six months to convince you that you’ve hired the right person?

  • 5. How does this position relate to the achievement of the company’s (or department’s, or boss’s) goals?

These questions are focused on the needs of the company and the position, and will show the interviewer that you are genuinely interested in the opportunity and what you can bring to the table. The answers to these questions will help you determine if the job and the company are right for you. Lastly, above all, be yourself. Relax and enjoy the conversation. Whether or not an interview leads to a job offer, it is valuable experience and a learning op- portunity for the next interview.

What it takes to be a team player

The ability to communicate, interact and work collectively with others is both a professional and personal asset. But in certain ways, the reliance on technology has made working as a team more complicated. People have grown accustomed to spending large quantities of time alone working at comput- ers or on phones and tablets, potentially compromising their ability to work directly with others when the need arises. According to Monster.com, when it comes to choosing a candidate for a new job or promotion, employers consistently say they want a team player. That means it’s advantageous for professionals looking to further their careers to brush up

on their team-building and social skills. So what does it mean to be a team player exactly? The following are some traits of team players.

• Meets deadlines: People working together on a project

have their own unique responsibilities regarding such projects. It’s important that the end result is produced on time; other- wise, the entire group pays the price. Employees who care about their teams consistently meet their deadlines, making things easier for their fellow team members as a result.

• Adapts easily: Team players are willing to adapt to

change and take others’ suggestions. Professional flexibility and openness to ideas are important traits, as you just may learn something from team members when you try things their way.

• Listens attentively: In order for a team to function, every

member has to listen to what his or her coworkers are saying. This also includes being receptive to criticism without lashing out. Listening can sometimes be more important than speak- ing.

• Communicates clearly: Team players effectively commu-

nicate their thoughts and ideas. This includes using language that is constructive, honest and respectful.

• Participates frequently: Even when his or her own work

is done, a team player does not shy away from taking on the

tasks of others to ensure a project is completed on time. This also can include offering tips or pointers.

• Happily shares the spotlight: Never the glory hog, a team

player is content to stand in the spotlight alongside cowork- ers. Team players make sure everyone is involved and recog- nized equally, and even take their share of the blame when things go awry.

Résumé writing rules to follow

February 2019 • Employment Guide • Delphos Herald – Résumé writing rules to follow When professionals

When professionals are ready to take a new step in their careers, it’s wise to revisit their old résumés and see what can be done to update them for the current day and age. This is especially true for people who may have been out of the job-seeking arena for some time. Writing a résumé can be complicated. The rules for finding a new job are continually evolving, and résumés remain a big component of that process. The following are some current résumé trends that will help profession- als stand out from the masses.

will likely be ignored. Stick to a single-page and make sure wording is brief but meaty.

Keep juicy details up top

Format the résumé so the most pertinent information is within the top one-third of the document. Beef up a sum- mary statement and use it in lieu of an objective. Make sure that summary includes keywords that promote your skills and experience to potentially lure the recruiter into reading more.

Consider design

Design your résumé so it will look good whether it’s viewed on a screen or a mobile phone or printed on pa- per. Classic serif style fonts can make a résumé seem dated, so select modern fonts that are crisp. The idea is for the résumé to look balanced and clear, without being overdone with modifications, like italics and bold lettering. However, a spot of color could provide much-needed at- tention.

Be brief yet effective

A concise design is key. Many recruiters spend little to no time reviewing the hordes of résumés they receive. In fact, automated résumé bots may initially screen the doc- uments to thin the crowd. According to data from the 12th annual Mystery Job Candidate survey by CareerXRoads,

the average recruiter spends six seconds looking at a ré-

sumé. If a résumé is lengthy or doesn’t attract attention, it

Tweak job titles

Mimic phrasing from the job listing to beat the bots and

get résumés flagged for review. Slightly change job posi- tion titles so they mirror the wording used. For example, if a recruiter is looking for a “financial account manager,” and you have the experience, list your title as something like “Senior manager of new financial accounts.”

Who you know

Landing a new job is often about what you know, but getting a foot in the door is also largely influenced by who you know. Include any professional groups to which you belong or alumni associations. Who knows? The recruiter may have the same alma mater, and you can bond over your shared mascot. Keywords, phrasing, formatting, and having the right skills for the job can ensure a résume is seen by a recruit- er, and perhaps even lead to a new career.

How do you choose a career?

So how do you choose a career? There

are several strategies to start with:

Self-Assessment: Take out a piece of pa- per and a pen and ask yourself some ques-

tions. Here are a few of the most important:

•What are my strengths and interests? Which careers make use of those? •What would I like to actually be doing ev- eryday? •What necessary training/schooling would I have to go through for those careers? •Are there many jobs available in that ca- reer? Is it a growing field? •How much income would I like to make?

By writing your answers down, you com- mit yourself to considering these questions.

You can refer to the answers later, especially when you’re feeling lost. You can always make up other questions that are more ap- plicable to your personal situation.

Exploring Career Options

Once you have a better idea of what kind of career you might be interested in, you can start exploring careers. Once great resource for answering questions about careers is the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) web-

site. For each career profile, the BLS also provides a list of similar careers, which can be extremely helpful for thoese who are look- ing to compare careers in related areas. When choosing a career, you may need to evaluate your own strengths and goals, which you can do through personal reflection and formal assessment.
