FIRST JOB

When thinking about starting or even re-starting a career there are many things to prepare, think about and then deliver.

In this process ahead, there are many stages that can often overwhelm and undermine as we get started on that road. Two key ones being Interviews and (if successful in our endeavour) that First Day in the job.

Long term IMEUS can help identify and work with you in preparing for the challenges you may face and can also help detail, through our coaching service, the hurdles you need to cross.

As a starter here are a few questions you might already be thinking about those two key stages.

Interviews

  • What do I wear?
  • How formal should I be?
  • How much should I prepare?
  • How do I broach the subject of salary?
  • How do I manage my nerves?
  • How do I speak articulately?
  • How do I appear confident?

 

Whether it be for that job of a lifetime, a job within a different industry, your first job back after time away, or even your first job ever - interviews can be both exciting and nerve-wracking.  Being able to control your nerves and harness your passion to come across articulately and concisely can be a tough call.  There are various questions to consider when facing an interview.  IMEUS offers a personal, online service to allow you to explore your queries and even have a dummy run of the interview process so you can practice and also better prepare yourself.  We help you to understand how you come across so that you can harness your attributes to the best of your ability to help them shine out and land you that dream job.

First Day

  • What time should I arrive?
  • What is the dress code?
  • What are the unspoken lunchtime rules?
  • Will I fit in?
  • How do I communicate with the boss?
  • How will I remember everyones names?
  • What will be expected of me?
  • Do I know everything I need to know?

The first day in any job throws up a million thoughts, questions and feelings.  IMEUS can help you understand how best to prepare yourself, both mentally and practically.  Understanding how you come across and then learning how to adapt to any given scenario helps to build confidence to allow you to tackle anything that may come your way.  We can offer tips and techniques to help remember people’s names, manage your nerves, ensure your voice gets heard in meetings, and manage those first social interactions in the workplace.  IMEUS helps you understand and harness your strengths to make an effective first impression that you can then build on throughout the course of your new position.
