TechStartupJobs Fair

newsletter 10th Jan

Hello,

January’s almost half-way through, but some of us still come up with our  2019 resolutions. And guess what, doing so you’re in the company of Mark Zuckerberg. He’s just committed to attending series of public discussions about the impact of technology on society.

In the light of the recent controversy around Facebook, this sounds like a solid PR move, doesn’t it?

 

Best regards,

Silvi

Preparing for one of our job fairs? Still feeling a little lost and not sure how to proceed? Don’t worry - you’re not alone! We understand that for many of our job seekers this is first such experience. And that’s why come to you with ultimate job seeker guide that will walk you through our event!

Our Tech Job Fairs are an amazing opportunity for all experienced and inexperienced job seekers across two continents. But they’re events of hundreds of people attending them, it may look like a challenge to prepare for them properly. Here’s what you should do.

Before the event

The most important steps to complete before the event - don’t omit those!

  • Download, or print your ticket so you can show it upon arrival at the event.  Be ready to have them prepared so you don’t spend time looking for them within your back, putting the whole line on hold.
  • Check the event website for all companies listed and their open positions.  We post company stories and informative graphics on our social media  (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram) and blog. Be sure to check our job board to know which company is looking for what employees.
  • Check the venue on the map to find the easiest way to arrive. Especially if you’re new to the area, research the best commute route that will deliver you on time. Take traffic into consideration do arrive punctually!
  • Update your CV and make many copies to bring at the event. Remember it’s supposed to be your first contact with the employer, not the last. Make sure you leave them something about you. (Read more about the resume below).

41046596381_d93f4c08d2_z

Additional steps to take:

  • Prepare your personal image. Our Tech Job Fair is the place where you first make your impressions. It’s where your potential employers see you for the very first time. Employers remember only a few of the hundreds of job seekers they meet at the fair. Make sure they remember you - dress with class and treat the fair as if it was your interview.
  • Prepare your professional portfolio. Get ready to present yourself to the employers available at the fair. Prepare a brief presentation about who you are, what are your goals and accomplishments, what are your skills and what specific problems and challenges can you solve for the company. Practise is out loud to gain confidence and memorise it well. Prepare your resume as well. Make it job fair specific and unique. Make sure you prepare a sufficient number of copies for every company you’re interested in. If there’s potential for on-the-spot interviewing or hiring at the Fair, take reference letters and cover letters, and assemble a professional portfolio (that contains examples of work and accomplishments).
  • Research the companies that interest you. Learn who the companies are and what they do. Be prepared to make cogent conversation and ask relevant/timely questions to employers (this will make you an interesting and memorable applicant). Researching companies and reading the blog stories we publish about them will help you with this task.
  • Make sure you’re ready for a conversation.  Prepare questions to ask employers: what opportunities and available; what are the responsibilities; what skills are companies seeking in candidates? Be prepared to answer questions and review standard interview questions and formulate your responses.
  • Plan your strategy. Visit booths first that interest you the most (when your energy is high and you’re at your best). Do not wonder or roam! Present yourself with a purpose. Don’t be shy – be prepared!
  • Be ready for more. Few job seekers are hired on-the-spot at Job Fairs. Be prepared to follow up on promising leads

26898412048_d80432188e_z

At the event

Registration - remember these steps!

  • Show your ticket either on your phone or printed - as we mentioned before, have them prepared in advance to not slow down the line.
  • You will be asked to write down your name and your role on a sticky label. This will simplify networking.  Make sure you write your name and position in a clear, readable way. Check out the picture above - the person on the left is an employer, the one on the right - a job seeker.

45346775431_150d9926bd_z

After you enter

  1. Find booth locations of your targeted employers.
  2. Briskly (but attentively) walk through the entire job fair. Scope-out the employers you want to talk to. Observe which employers are busy and which aren’t. Make special note of employers that are conducting secondary interviews, either at their booth or in another location (these are the employers who are serious about hiring). Identify the person conducting secondary interviews and seek that person out!
  3. Get a feeling for the entire Job Fair. Then, go and sit for a few moments to compose yourself and to finalize your ‘plan of attack’!

43098287340_d65eae1b03_z

As you approach your targeted companies

  1. From a distance (about 2 meters away), observe and listen to employers interacting with other applicants. Listen to what the employer is asking. Figure out who is in charge. What happens to the resumes (are there multiple resume piles, does anyone write on them)?
  2. Determine the highest level employer-representative in the booth. Seek this person out.
  3. While waiting in line, review information about the employer you’re approaching.
  4. As you approach the table, respect other people’s privacy as they complete their interaction with the employer.

42014766264_ef712202d7_z

When you meet with an employer

  1. Greet each employer with a firm handshake. Make eye contact! Be polite!
  2. Try to remember the employer’s name. Glance at a nametag.
  3. Show interest. State briefly what you like about the company.
  4. Listen carefully to what the employer says. The room may be noisy and busy, but don’t be distracted. Focus, focus, focus!
  5. Ask questions.
  6. Answer questions directly, politely, and concisely. REMEMBER- THE GOAL IS TO BE ASKED BACK FOR AN ‘IN-HOUSE’ INTERVIEW.
  7. Do NOT ask questions about salary and benefits (wait until later for these type of questions).
  8. Request a business card or obtain a contact name, phone number, fax, and email address. Take brochures or informational materials that are available at the booth.
  9. Thank each employer for their time.
  10. If you’re given an application form, take time to fill it out neatly and completely.
  11. Network with other job seekers at the Fair. Share leads, resources, and ideas.
  12. Keep a list of the employers you meet. Make notes about each company and your conversation with each representative.

43098248280_4bb08581de_z

After the event

  1. Review your notes from the Job Fair. Evaluate what you think went well and what you can improve for the next Job Fair or interview.
  2. Write personalized thank-you letters to companies that interest you. Cite something specific from your discussion. Try to send letters out within two days after the Job Fair. It’s okay to enclose a resume with your thank-you letter. This may draw attention to your name once again.
  3. Continue to research the companies that interest you. Treat the Job Fair as an initial contact, not the last.
  4. Keep accurate records of your contacts, including dates of your letters or telephone calls, and copies of all application materials that you send.

43098285380_7063e91e02_z

Final Tip: Focus on learning as much as you can about what employers are looking for in the people they hire. The primary benefit of participation in the Fair is to collect information and make contacts.

It’s not as hard as it looks, is it? To make your Tech Job Fair successful, prepare ahead and remember our tips on what to at the venue. And remember - our Tech Meetups representative is always there to help you!

1. What's the story behind the creation of your company? What inspired you to start your business?

Benjamin Hermann: “Get out of your comfort zone!” While this may sound like the shrill whistle call of a run-of-the-mill fitness trainer, for me and my partners it was this uneasy feeling that was our main motivation. We have both worked in similar company structures and, ironically, around 20 of our current employees have also experienced the same kind of working environment that was not creating the culture that led to a productive, creative, and forward-thinking workforce. Back then the startup hype was up and running but we saw a lack of newly established companies that really captured the potential of doing it in a different way. We had the vision to start a company which is truly diverse and scales fast internationally. A company which is home for nerds, but also fancy and determined to ship great services to the hidden champions in the thriving region of Stuttgart, Germany, and beyond. This type of company was not existing. So we started it. Together, we shared our experiences and encouraged each other to break out of our comfort zone, to transform it, and, most importantly, to digitize it. We pushed the reset button ourselves.

2. What's your current view on the market you work in? What makes you feel like your brand stands out?

Benjamin Hermann: We at Zoi are guiding digital champions with our passion for code, cloud, data, electrical engineering and creation. We are working to find unique solutions in the infinite world of cloud computing – without compromise. We are self-determined and independent. As an international team, we offer our services to medium-sized and global customers. We find and implement agile and sophisticated code solutions by combining the best of enterprise IT and cloud computing. Despite being a recent entry to the market place, we possess a great deal of know-how and remarkable knowledge of the industry.

3. What's your company culture like? What is that you want to represent?

Benjamin Hermann: Zoi is the abbreviation for Zero One Infinity – underpinning the essence of IT together with our ethos and drive. The definitive between 1 and 0 or yes or no, for example. We pride ourselves on clear decisions while also being aware that there is no time for standing still, and that there is no such thing as a standard solution. We have reset everything to zero in order to resurface again within our company. We can facilitate this reset within our customer base so that progress and success can be created moving forward. And that every idea can be the start of something big. That’s why we actively foster flat hierarchies and build on the competence of each individual.

4. What is your team like? How do you work?

Benjamin Hermann: We currently have two main locations in Germany and more are planned. Our main location in Stuttgart is closely linked to the successful medium-sized company structure of this region, including prominent international relationships. Our second location in Berlin enables us to be close to the digital generation. We call them “digital creatives” – a self-confident generation that handles digital opportunities creatively, intuitively, and holistically.

Our company growth is inextricably linked to cultural growth. Our team was already interdisciplinary at the time the company was founded. This is both a valuable position as well as a powerful resource for us because a tailor-made cloud solution includes our ability to accept very different points of view. In addition to classic IT techs, we also employ biologists, mathematicians, and physicists, with our team being rounded off by lateral entrants from the agency sphere. We are proud of the fact that we have employees who are able to as-

sume and apply an entrepreneurial mindset themselves. The development of the individual is very important to us, since we are striving for a continuously evolving development process and all want to be proactively ahead of the curve.

5. What kind of people are you looking for? Who's the best match for your team?

Benjamin Hermann: We are looking for idealists, digital heroes, and visionaries who – just like us – believe in the potential of digitalization. We believe in people who enjoy delivering. Shipping beats perfection - this is one of our mottos. Just as in our technological outlook, our internal focus is on people and their development. Which is why we’re always on the lookout for exciting people to enrich our team. If you like finding solutions by trial and error and are looking for the freedom to develop personally and professionally, then you’ll discover that working at Zoi can be more than just a job.

Find out about our currently open positions on our career page: https://meet.zoi.de

6. What benefits and perks do you offer your employees? What's the biggest plus of working for you?

Nothing ventured, nothing gained. That’s why 20 percent of your working time at Zoi is always available for creative technological and methodical experimentation. We enable our employees to working at their own pace to help shaping the success of our company. This works best in interdisciplinary teams, in direct contact with our customers, with working hours that are truly flexible – and team events that go beyond the bowling alley. Free Friday lunch and fruits, coffee and water are additional add-ons. But the most important part in my opinion is that everyone is encouraged to shape the company and to contribute equally to drive Zoi forward.

Applying for a job in a startup and applying for a job in a corporate, are qualitatively different things. Demands of both are different and the mindset you’d require to perform well at both of them is different.

If you have already decided to work for a startup despite all the hurdles that may await you on your way, here are a few tips about things to avoid saying and doing during your startup job interview process.

Using generic phrases

Phrases like fast learner, strategist, initiator of new initiatives will not work for a startup, at least not for a good one – A good startup will expect people who can communicate clearly what they have done and what past result and achievement makes them eligible in less than 140 characters. If you are still left with space to explain your personality, be my guest.

Jump straight to why can you deliver on that particular job they are advertising? Because you’ve done it before? Because you got the network? Because got the figures? Show them the figures.

happy-workers

“Managing” a team

No startup ever has use of managers people who hope to get things done delegating to others. In a startup everyone ships and there is no hierarchy but a flat hierarchy. Everyone is in the field and everyone delivers something at the end of the day – whether code, content, or customer support calls.

Saying how cool and necessary their startup is for the society

Even if that’s true no good startup will ever hire you for flattering.
The better way is to decide what specifically they are call about and address that particular need. For example – I saw your downloads getting to 10,000 in just 10 days, I can help it jump to a 1,000,000 in 30 days. Or your interface is so cool, I’d love to work on some extra things that will boost your conversion in another 3%.

See? Flatter + actionable in the same pitch

Being a “people” person

I don’t know why people use this so much, what exactly do they try to convey and what will it take to remove it from their dictionary. You say you are a people person who knows how to make it win-win for everyone? Well perfect, in other words you are a great salesman. In that case sell my product to someone in a way he is so happy and delighted with the value he gets for his money that he refers 10 more people to buy. That’s a real people person if you ask me.

Being remorseful about 9-5 jobs

This won’t get you selected, not only because it is cliché nowadays, but because no one works 9-5 anyways. Our smartphones and 3G have permanently taken that privilege from us. Therefore both, the average and the great performers work beyond 9-5 but the difference is what they deliver.

If you can’t showcase what you have achieved even within those hours, your rebellious mind will not sell you to the opportunity. It is not about the 9-5 job and it is not because you are forced to do the same thing every single day. It is rather because you are lazy and unwilling to challenge yourself. Contrary to what the folklore says, no company ever forces people to do the same thing or forbids them to innovate within their own context.

You are looking for more challenging role

No you don’t. Get to the point. Be honest, you will be appreciated for that and save many people’s valuable time. What you need is more money.

If you were looking more challenges you would have found some already. The world is not short of challenges. The very fact that you haven’t shipped or built anything in the past few years is a living proof that challenges is not what you are after. Cut the nonsense.

You have already failed in your own startup

Thank the startup folklore again for making it sound cool for people to brag that they have failed a startup, hence being more powerful and experienced as a result of it. That blog you were running? That doesn’t count as a startup unless you found way to monetize it.

What matters more to those who’d hire you is not the mere fact that you failed in your own startup but that you understand the nature of that failure and why exactly it failed. Demonstrating clarity around this will earn you extra points on your startup job’s application.

When you're job searching, take some time to attend job fairs. You'll have the opportunity to meet with employers that you might not be able to access any other way. Plus, job fairs and career expos often offer networking programs, resume reviews, and workshops for job seekers.

What can you do to compete with the crowds attending job fairs? These tips will help you get ready to attend and maximize your opportunities while you're there.

Tips for Attending a Job Fair

  • Dress for Success. Attend the job fair dressed for success in professional interview attire, and carry a portfolio. However, do wear comfortable shoes, because you will be standing in line.
  • Practice a Pitch. Practice a quick pitch summarizing your skills and experience so you're ready to promote your candidacy to prospective employers.
  • Bring Supplies. Bring extra copies of your resume, pens, a notepad, and business cards with your name, your email address, and cell phone number. You might also want to consider bringing "mini resume" cards as an efficient way to sum up your candidacy.
  • Check Out Companies. Many job fairs and career expos have information on participating companies on the job fair web site. Be prepared to talk to hiring managers by checking out the company's web site, mission, open positions, and general information before you go. If you demonstrate knowledge about each company or manager you're talking to, you'll certainly stand out from the crowd.
  • Arrive Early. Keep in mind that lines can be long, so arrive early - before the fair officially opens.
  • Attend a Workshop. If the job fair has workshops or seminars, attend them. In addition to getting job search advice, you'll have more opportunities to network.
  • Network. While you are waiting in line, talk to others. You never know who might be able to help with your job search. Along the same lines, remember to stay polite and professional. Even if you're feeling discouraged in your job search, don't vent to other fair-goers about your situation or about any specific companies. Stay positive and make the most of the opportunity!
  • Show Initiative. Shake hands and introduce yourself to recruiters when you reach the table. Demonstrate your interest in the company and their job opportunities.
  • Be Enthusiastic. Employer surveys identify one of the most important personal attributes candidates can bring to a new position as enthusiasm. This means that employers want to see you smile!
  • Ask Questions. Have some questions ready for the company representatives. The more you engage them, the better impression you'll make.
  • Collect Business Cards. Collect business cards, so you have the contact information for the people you have spoken with.
  • Take Notes. It's hard to keep track when you're meeting with multiple employers in a busy environment. Jot down notes on the back of the business cards you have collected or on your notepad, so you have a reminder of who you spoke to about what.
  • Say Thank You. Take the time to send a brief follow up thank you note or email to the company representatives you met at the job fair. It's a good way to reiterate your interest in the company and to remind company representatives that you're a strong candidate.

Job Fair helping people find part time work

487408_GUnemployment rates have fallen nationwide but there are still nearly 12 million active job seekers who cannot find work.

A recent study by the 27/7 Wall Street identified the states where residents had the best chances of finding work and also received the best benefits while they were looking.

Four of the top five border South Dakota. While the Mount Rushmore State doesn't make the top 10, unemployment here remains about half the national average.

This comes after a slight rise in Sioux Falls' unemployment from May to June.

That seems to be the trend.

People with full-time jobs wanting to add a little something extra to their schedules, and their paychecks. Either that, or many others are retired.

SD unemployment sits at 3.9% far lower than the national rate of 7.6%

SMG Sioux Falls President Terry Torkildson says, when it comes to finding new part or full-time hires, even that can bring a few challenges.

Online recruitment – revolution or anti-climax?

Posted by | 5 August, 2013 | Recruiting, TechStartupJobs Fair

4ca888b030de17282fbdb9cb55ffc9f3cca76f40Mention online recruitment and different things come to mind. Job boards, for example, with their CV databases. LinkedIn and other social media.

Mention online recruitment to an executive recruitment company, and reactions are mixed: “Online doesn’t work for senior executives.”

“Job boards are rubbish.”

“Someday LinkedIn will be how everyone gets hired.”

“There’s no substitute for face-to-face.”

Online recruitment has indeed produced a revolution in how people look for jobs, and how companies hire them. Not even 20 years ago, CVs were distributed by fax or post, and job advertising existed in only a few types of printed media – daily newspapers, and business and trade journals.

Today, most executive recruitment firms would struggle to deal with a hard-copy CV. Print advertising is in long-term decline and social media waging war with the job boards to decide which will dominate and survive.

Ever since the mid 1990s, when the first job boards came online, some observers have predicted the demise of the recruitment industry. If employers and prospective employees can connect directly and easily, what role would the recruiter play? That “disintermediation”, however, never happened.

What happened was the recruitment industry became expert in the use of job boards and adopted them as their own, as a way to provide a faster and more cost-effective service to clients. One leading UK executive job board reports 90% of its adverts are posted by recruitment agencies on behalf of their clients, rather than by the clients themselves.

The same predictions, and the same dynamics, are now at work in social media, particularly with respect to LinkedIn, the business/professional networking site. We see, in turn, the same adoption of social recruitment by agencies looking to improve their service to clients. While LinkedIn initially focused its recruitment offerings on direct employers, but more recently (following the money) has rolled out platforms and products specifically for the recruitment industry.

Executives Online’s ‘21st Century Recruitment’, published earlier this year, surveyed 1,200 managers and executives across the UK and continental Europe to discover companies’ preferences, tools and methods for identifying senior talent, and compared their answers to those given six years earlier.
