“…See all the jobs here
tonight that everyone
else will see
GOVERNMENT STOPPAGE EFFECTS DEFENSE CONTRACTORS
Don’t really like what you are doing? Need a way out of a bad
job? Can’t take time off to look for a new job?
If you answered any or all of these questions with a “yes” then,
we have help for you! Remember, don’t just quit! The Labor
Department says that it 6 times harder to a find a job if you are
not currently working…Look inside for tips and suggestions…
TRIED OF YOUR JOB?
So you are stuck in another deadend, meningless job where you hate what you do and the
boss makes it unbearable to stay.
You really want…naw…you need a new job!
Man…that sounds so good. A new job. Maybe
a job with more money? Maybe a job with a
future? Is that possible?
Right now, you can’t see it and the only thing
that you are thinking (strongly) is to just up
and leave. Don’t! As we said before, it is far
more difficult to get a new job if you do that.
The easy way out is the worst thing you could
do to yourself. By just leaving you hurt
yourself and your family without hurting that
boss or even the company.
Better solution is to find a new job. A better
job! “Right!” you say. To you this is not a
choice as you have no time to look for a job or
to go on interviews because you are working
and you can’t take time off without getting
Not necessarily true my friend. Here let us
show you several means of doing an off-hours
job search and how to arrange evening
While this is not the easiest way to get a new
job, it can be made to work for you because
your trump card is that you are already
working. That is your key. You can use the fact
that you are currently employed as a leverage
to get an employer to meet you outside of
normal office hours.
The fact that you are working gives you the
advantage over the unemployed job seeker
and allows you a lot of wiggle room in the
application process. You can learn to
successfully utilize this to give yourself many
privileges and advantages not open to an
unemployed job seeker.
Most ads say apply in person…do not call…do
not send a resume. As an employed job
seeker, you can get away with all this and
more. Look closer at the ads and they usually
say do not call unless you are working
elsewhere (otherwise stated as “…if you have
a question call…”). Since you are working
elsewhere, then, you can call; you can send a
resume and/or (even) ask the employer to set
an interview time outside of your working
The reason why you can do these things is that
the employer is a business person who can
appreciate your unwillingness to leave your
current employer shorthand to go to an
interview and they will (if you have the skill
set that they are seeking) gladly accommodate
your request not so much for you but rather
out of respect for your current employer (shoe
on the other foot thing).
If any employer is unwilling to do this, you
might do well to reconsider working for them
as they may end up being worse than what
you now suffer with. A new job does not
mean automatically a better job. Remember
out of the frying pan and into the fire?
From the desk of Alowishus I. Hadajob, PhD.
“MIXING TRADITIONAL AND UNTRADITIONAL
WORK SEARCH TO SECURE EMPLOYMENT…”
Dr. Alowishus I. Hadajob is a leading expert in the field of
employment research and is the author of over 6 important
research studies into the area(s) of untraditional job search
methodologies. He is also the guest speaker at a recent
Employment Training Camp where he laid out a new, bold
methodology of seeking employment while still currently employed (without the utilization of
Dr. Hadajob explained that current employment of any sorts (real or volunteer) is critical to
going back to work as swiftly as possible. He further explained that this was do to the risk
factor that an employer assumes in hiring anyone. For a person who is currently unemployed
the risk factor becomes a real issue because at what point were they unemployed due to the
economy or because of real barriers or other employment related issues. So the key is to
always have the illusion of employment because if you are currently employed, your current
employer has already assumed this risk (and since you are still employed, it probably was due
to the economy).
With the utilization of modern techologies like smart phones (with internet access), I-Pads and
android tablets, you can conducta better job search than you could by beating the hot
pavement and due to the employer’s willingness to acomidate you as a professional courtsey
to a fellow employer (the desire to not disrupt another employer’s work force); you can actual
get a higher level of personalized access (non-work hours) that your fellow, unemployed, job
seeker would never be given.
Further to this point Dr. Hadajob was a job seeker’s access to Free Job Boards like the Auntie
Sue and Uncle Bob Use Job Board :
Dr. Hadajob explained that this was the prefect tool for any currently employed job seeker to
utilize to look for and apply for new employment. Dr. Hadajob further illustrated that direct
access to that board’s real jobs for real working people, it wealth of Insider INTEL and how it
educated the pro-active job seeker to acquire the knowledge needed to gain employment
make any job seeker (who learned how to tap into it’s powerful INTEL) a mighty force in
gaining employment. (THIS IS A FREE BOARD TO UMOM CAMPERS)
Dr. Hadajob worked the ETW Campers through the process of traditional applications mixed
with calls to each employer to expain that you are currently working and are requesting a
reasonable acomadtion of interview hours outside of normal working hours.

SUCCESSFULLY NAVIGATING THE
By Fred J. Hecklinger, Ph.D., TSA Career Coach
This article is a follow-up to last month’s guidelines on preparing for a competency-based
interview. Because these interviews can be intimidating, it is important to plan how you will
present yourself during the interview itself. Your accomplishments, your enthusiasm, and
your potential for contributing to TSA at an increased level of responsibility can shine when
you successfully navigate the interview.
Navigating a structured, competency-based employment interview:
1. You should not assume that the evaluators are familiar with your education and work
history. Therefore, you should use the interview as an opportunity to communicate your
experience and any other information that relates to the position. Since you have prepared
extensively for this, go into the interview with a strategy. It should be your goal to show the
panel members or the interviewer that you are the right person for the job.
2. Respond to questions thoroughly using specific examples that demonstrate your
Use the Situation - Task – Action – Result technique:
a. Situation or Task: Describe the situation that you were in or the task that you needed to
accomplish. You must describe a specific event or situation, not a generalized description of
what you have done in the past. Be sure to give enough detail for the interviewer to
understand. This situation can be from a previous job, from a volunteer experience, or any
b. Action you took: Describe the action you took and be sure to keep the focus on you.
Even if you are discussing a group project or effort, describe what you did, not the efforts
of the team. Don’t tell what you might do. Tell what you did.
c. Results you achieved: What happened? How did the event end? What did you
accomplish? What did you learn?
3. Make a positive impression. Look directly at the interviewer or panel members and
smile. If possible, shake hands with the panel members or the interviewer. Keep an open
posture (i.e., don’t cross your arms). Be attentive when the interviewer or each panel
member speaks. Even though the panel members or interviewer may be taking notes, try
to direct your responses first to the person who asked you the question and make eye
contact whenever possible.
4. Show your enthusiasm for the position. In addition to answering the questions
effectively, it should be your goal to demonstrate to the interviewer or panel members that
you would be an effective team member, that you can be counted on to help out in dealing
with special needs, and that you will be willing to take on additional responsibilities as
needed to achieve the TSA’s goals. Try to avoid passively responding to questions or giving
very brief answers (i.e., don’t just say “Yes, I can do that.” Give examples).
5. Show pride in your past performance. Be positive in sharing your skills and
accomplishments. Remember your list of top priority accomplishments and experiences
that are most relevant to the position and include them in your responses.
6. Listen carefully to each question and make sure you know what is being asked. If you are
not certain, ask for clarification. Some questions may have several parts. You may want to
make notes to remind yourself of the different parts of the question before you begin to
answer the question. Note: The interview process for some positions may not permit the
interviewees to take notes. Try to find out ahead of time whether you can take a pad of
paper and a pen into the interview. After you have answered, you may wish to clarify with
the interviewer or panel members that you have answered the question, especially if the
question has several parts. A possible question would be: “Would you like me to expand on
or clarify my answers to any of the sections of the question?”
7. Use positive language. Avoid can’t, don’t, and won’t. Do not bring up anything negative
about your current or past jobs and employers.
8. Show a sincere interest in the needs of TSA and a willingness to meet those needs. If you
have the opportunity to ask questions, demonstrate your interest by asking questions
about TSA’s future needs, challenges, and goals. Even if the interviewer or panel members
choose not to answer your question(s), you will still have expressed your interest in what
you can do for the organization. Avoid asking self-serving questions about topics such as
opportunities for promotion or when the hiring process might be completed. Do not bring
up questions regarding pay, vacations, and benefits. You can find out that information
9. Be prepared to make a final statement if the interviewer(s) ask if you have anything that
you would like to say or if they ask if you wish to make a statement. This is a golden
opportunity for you to share your enthusiasm for the position, your readiness to make a
contribution at the next level, your readiness for supervising and mentoring others, your
commitment to the organization’s goals, your pride in your past performance, and your
readiness to be a member of the team. Don’t miss this opportunity. Be prepared!
Walk out of the interview with as much confidence as you entered the room. Close with a
sincere thank you, a firm handshake and continue to smile as you exit. Last impressions are
as important as first ones. Your preparation before the interview, combined with your STAR
answers and enthusiasm, will make you feel like you successfully navigated the
