Design - New infographic wanted for Indiana Jobs
Organization name JT Employment Description of the organization and its target audience We are an employment software organization which manages job distribution Industry Business & Consulting Description We are looking to develop a piece with the title "Double your salary & Improve your career in 90 days or Less". This would include aspects of education level, job searching, resume writing & point of contact tips. The design should be attractive, clean and without too much downward scrolling, preferably 600 pixels wide - and tells a great story. Also, only include very reputable sources like BLS.gov. We typically like styles like those represented in the following infographics: http://visual.ly/how-dangerous-are- (good use of simple clean/clear cartoons, coupled with statistics and well organized segments/sections of info, colors are good) http://visual.ly/dark-knight-rises (use of clean design/layout, simple clean info "graphics/icons" and color balance/palette) http://visual.ly/solomo-stats-no-bu (again, clear and sharp images/graphics representing stats) http://visual.ly/ugly-truth-food-waste (not our favorite, but good whitespacing and use of color) http://visual.ly/tips-heart-health- (good color palette/matching, clean simple graphics - could be sharper/higher quality) http://visual.ly/see-jane-earn-wher (good clean imagery, whitespace balance, sectioned/organized well, simple) This one will be focused on the state of Indiana. Here are the specifics: Education Level ------------------ Find the statistics information here: http://www.hoosierdata.in.gov/docs/…0_2012.xls Source: http://hoosierdata.in.gov Job Searches ------------------ 1. Do a background and credit check on yourself 2. Do a Google search to see what potentially negative results come up 3. "Clean up" your social networking accounts to avoid scandals 4. Add a Google alert to get specific searches send to you 5. get jobtarget alerts to get high value jobs sent to you 6. Search & Watch specific job boards or association sites for job opportunities Source: http://www.jobTarget.com Resume Writing ------------------ 1. Keep the length to one page for 4-year degrees, two pages for advanced degrees or extensive experience. 2. Name your resume file so it's easily identifiable to an employer if it's e-mailed: FirstName_LastName.doc 3. Edit ruthlessly. Typos suggest a lack of attention to detail. 4. Make your resume visually appealing, use an easy to read font like 12 point Ariel (avoid unusual or highly stylized typefaces) and allow for adequate white space including 1/2 inch margins 5. Limit the use of italics and underlines as well as avoiding text boxes, graphics, and tables because they can make it difficult for an employer to load your resume into their system. 6. Structure and organize your resume as required for your industry. Typical format includes: Name and Contact Info, Career Objective, Education, Experience, Activities, Honors and Awards Source:http://target.com Negotiations ------------------ Do's 1.Show Experience / Know-How: Put your experiences on the table and let employers see exactly why you're the right person for the position. Hands-on experience is a strong indicator of a go-to professional. 2. Prove Your Worth: Flashy titles isn't enough to get what you want. You must demonstrate what you've accomplished. Speak with fact, stats and figures that can be quantified or that impact the bottom line positively. 3. Show Excitement & Passion: Motivation is a huge part on the way to success & productivity. Be sincere in order to show the employer that the only thing stopping you from taking the job is the right compensation. 4. Visualize Yourself Having & Doing the Job: Perceptual visualization is a great way to get what you want and to follow through. While not necessarily a tactic, it provides you with extra confidence. 5. Do your Homework: When you arrive, you should know A to Z about what the position needs are, the skills required, the industry average for salary, and of course market demand. This provides you with leverage in discussing your request. Don'ts 1. Bring Personal Life or Drama into the Discussion: Salary is based on the company's budget and your capability of getting the tasks required, done. Avoid talking about girl/boy friends, pet operations or anything else not immediately required for the job, 2. Be afraid to Walk Away: Sometimes the will to turn down an offer and leaving might just be the best negotiation tactic. If you're not scared to walk away from the table you may just prove that you're very capable of going elsewhere and getting what you deserve. The risk of course is that you may never get the offer once leaving. 3. Be Emotional: One thing your future boss doesn't want, is to see you throwing a fit because you didn't get what you wanted. Prove that you're a professional, capable of keeping your emotions in check, amid less then desirable outcomes. Think implications in the future with other employers too. 4. Turn Down the First Offer "Just Because": The first offer might be exactly what you want. If not, remain quiet and the employer might just make a better or revised offer to break the silence. Resist hearsay. 5. Lack Flexibility: If you see that negotiations are not going your way, be flexible and prepared with reference letters, offer to take a "trial period" salary cut, or propose working from home to cut down office and other costs. Be ready to adapt. 6. Speak in Circles or Roundabout Logic: Try to not be too wordy or unprepared in your delivery of all the components required to get your desired outcome. Less is more, unless you can back up your claims with fact.
