UTech Alumni Job Hunting & Career Tip: Task vs Value-Adding Mindset November 10, 2015

Posted by utechalumni in Job Search Tips, Professional Development.
Tags: , , , , , , , , ,
1 comment so far

CAREER & JOB HUNTING TIP

Hello UTech Grads!

Recruiters truly want to know via resume and interview, the answer to the question “What value will this candidate add to my organization?” This cannot be answered clearly by reviewing a list of tasks that a person did in their current or past work or volunteer assignments. When we work or study or volunteer, we are to create…impact. It is the impact (how things changed for the better as a result of our effort) that makes our contribution to an organization or event worthwhile…and measurable.

It is an unfortunate truth, that many of us take jobs and go to work daily with a “task completion” mindset. This is a focus on the job description and duties. We do not know, research or analyze how our particular role contributes value to the overall goals of the organization to which we are employed. That is a “value-adding” mindset. Years pass, and when we need to apply for another job or a scholarship, we are unable to quantify or illustrate clearly the difference our work has made on behalf of the organizations for which we have worked or volunteered.

The ability to clearly quantify our contribution across our work history is key to maintaining competitiveness as a professional

Take action today. Figure out how and why your role in your organization matters. If you are in a dead-end job [many jobs are just that] and you have been given tasks that do not allow you to quantify the value you add, then seriously consider relocating to a more productive role in your organization or looking for a new job as soon as possible. This is the only way that you will be able to compete as a professional as the ‘nature of work’ changes and jobs get more specialized in skill requirements and continue to be scarce.

Speaking of competitiveness as a professional, here are some things to ponder...

What steps have you taken within the last 6 -12 months to acquire or improve skills required of the 21st Century Professional?

Do you know the job outlook for your particular profession in the country, city, state, in which you reside?

Based on industry trends and news, is your current job, skill set, company viable?

Do you know how to strategically use the internet and social media to passively and actively job hunt and grow a viable network of like-minded professionals?

Do you know why it is vital based on career trends for professionals to have an online and social media presence?

What are the scarce skills in your industry or related industries that would make you more competitive in a job hunt?

When was the last time you created an inventory of all your skills?

What is your survival plan in relation to job loss?

The day-to-day management and outcome of your career over your lifetime is the responsibility of the Professional…never the employer. Take action today.
