Powerful communication: 8 tips

By: Nikita Stegeman

If you are building your career or your business, it is important to be able to communicate powerfully & clearly. Many of us tend to over-argue ourselves, too much so. Skirting around the message or naming fallacies only make you look implausible or defensive.By communicating defensively, you invalidate the message.

8 TIPS FOR DIGITAL INTERVIEWS

By: Nikita Stegeman

Although I prefer a conversation where you can shake hands, digital interviews are part of reality these days: sometimes it's just more convenient. In my role at Vibe Group, too, I make use of this when it is not otherwise possible.

Following up a job application?

By: Nikita Stegeman

Within my personal network, there are regularly people looking for a new job who like to ask me for tips 

The job application question I get asked most often is:

If there is no feedback yet from the organisation you applied to, is it a good idea to call them?

(Whether that's a response to sending in your CV or the outcome of the application process)

In fact, my advice is always:

Call (you snooze, you lose)

By adopting a proactive attitude, you show that you are not afraid to pick up the phone, to start the conversation and that you immediately know where you stand (or how long you still have to wait for the results).

Keep the following 3 things in mind:

  1. The closing date of the vacancy;
  2. No results yet? Then ask when you can expect it;
  3. Call from enthusiasm and interest, not from impatience.

Process?
Are you going for an interview somewhere and the process is not entirely clear? Ask what the application process looks like and when you can expect feedback!
