10 Crazy Job Interview Mistakes People Actually Made

· On the way to the interview, the candidate passed, cut off and flipped his middle finger at a driver who happened to be the interviewer.

· The candidate took off his shoes during the interview.

· The candidate asked for a sip of the interviewer’s coffee.

· When a candidate interviewing for a security position wasn’t hired on the spot, he painted graffiti on the building.

· Candidate was arrested by federal authorities during the interview when the background check revealed the person had an outstanding warrant.

· Candidate told the interviewer she wasn’t sure if the job offered was worth “starting the car for.”

“It may seem unlikely that candidates would ever answer a cellphone during an interview, or wear shorts, but when we talk to hiring managers, we remarkably hear these stories all of the time,” said Rosemary Haefner, vice president of human resources for CareerBuilder.

Lucky for interviewers, she notes that standing out from the crowd – in a good way – is typically a bigger issue for most job-seekers than avoiding a big mistake…

Invisible material can link offline print to digital content

While the introduction of QR codes may have made it easy for publishers to link their offline and online content, we’re now seeing efforts that offer the same functionality without the need for visible markings. Similar in some ways to Blippar, Touchcode has now developed a way to integrate tags into print without affecting its design. What’s more, unlike most innovations we’ve seen in this field, the technology doesn’t require the user to scan the print with a camera in order to access the digital content.

Using a printable conductive material which is invisible to the human eye but can read by smartphones and tablets, Touchcode is designed to emulate the abilities of QR codes without the need to dedicate space on a page or product label for a visual symbol.

El dibujo, nueva herramienta empresarial

Una vez el público ya preparado, para empezar, ejercicios sencillos, dibujar formas básicas para “soltar la muñeca”.En todo momento la distribución de la sala agrupaba el público en grupos de cuatro y al finalizar cada ejercicio los asistentes debían cambiar de sitio. Des este modo se potenció la conexión y relación entre las personas asistentes. En el último ejercicio se planteaba que resolvieran un reto: “¿Para qué sirve el dibujo?” a través del Visual Thinking.

¡Más de 130 personas experimentando con el poder del dibujo! Como ya comentamos, el jueves 16 de febrero ESADECREAPOLIS acogió la primera edición del formato Design Thinking Evenings. Para esta ocasión: Draw, Connect & Get Results. Pero aparte de dibujar, conectar y obtener resultados el objetivo principal era pasarlo bien. Aprendimos como utilizar el poder del dibujo para expresar con imágenes aquello que tenemos en la mente y como nos puede ayudar a resolver problemas, plantear retos desde otro punto de vista y a comunicarnos mejor.

A continuación, podéis ver un resumen del taller:

50+ Job Skills You Should List on Your Resume

By: Business News Daily
There are lots of reasons it might be hard to cobble together a decent resume. Maybe you’ve been unemployed for a long time, maybe you’re trying to switch careers or maybe you’re a mom who’s been home raising kids for a few years.

Whatever your situation, there’s good news. Resumes are changing. Your skills are just as valuable as your formal employment and can help sell yourresume to a potential employer.

Ford R. Myers, career coach, speaker and author of the book “Get The Job You Want, Even When No One’s Hiring” (John Wiley & Sons, 2009) encourages job seekers to draw on a variety of past experiences, in both paid and non-paid positions, when applying for new employment.

“These transferable skills, acquired during any activity – volunteer positions, classes, projects, parenting, hobbies, sports – can be applicable to one’s next job,” Myers said.  “By adding transferable skills to a resume, employers get a better understanding and broader picture of who they are hiring – as well as the interests, values and experiences that the candidate brings to the table.”

Myers divided transferrable skills into five broad skill areas and gives examples of how you can describe each: Leer más “50+ Job Skills You Should List on Your Resume”
