    Career Planning

    March 05, 1998

    The C areer Planning Process looks like an interesting tool to help you focus your career search.

    It "encourages individuals to explore and gather information which enables them to synthesize, gain competencies, make decisions, set goals and take action".

    Each individual varies in their progress through each stage. Some advance rapidly through each or all of the stages while others progress more slowly. Individuals may repeat all or parts of the career development process at various points throughout their lives as values, interests, abilities, and life circumstances change.

    There are fours steps to using the model.

    The first step involves gathering information about yourself to assist in making a decision about a career. You should develop an understanding of self including values, interests, aptitudes, abilities, personal traits, and desired life style, and become aware of the interrelationship between self and occupational choice

    The second step allows individuals to investigate the world of work in greater depth, narrow a general occupational direction into a specific one through an informed decision making process, and declare a major.

    In Step III individuals evaluate occupational choices and gain practical experience through internships, cooperative education, relevant summer employment, volunteer work and campus activities. In addition, more specific decisions about occupational choices are made.

    An initial occupational choice is made in Step IV. Individuals prepare for and begin conducting a job search, or apply to graduate or professional schools.

    This is well worth a look.

    The economies of South-East Asia appear to have been faltering slightly of late.

    Still, this geographical area remains dynamic and attractive in job terms.

    So how do you get into this growing job market?

    Hong Kong-based JobAsia may be the answer.

    The site is a little loaded with gew-gaws for our taste, but nonetheless appears to be a comprehensive resource.

    Once you have registered, JobAsia's engine allows you to search their database by:

    • job location
    • job area
    • industry
    • company name
    • job title
    • target years of experience
    • education
    • keywords
    • duration of job posting

    or almost any combination of the above.

    The site also features "QuickResume" and "QuickApply", which allow you to apply for jobs on-line confidentially.

    Job prospects in Information Technology continue to just get better and better. And, within the field, there are a number of areas.

    According to a recent report from RHI Consulting, the "Hot Jobs Report", networking is the hottest speciality, with network, LAN and systems administration being emphasized.

    (RHI Consulting is a specialized staffing service placing information technology professionals on a short- and long-term basis.)

    The Hot Jobs Report tracks job growth in information technology through a survey of 1,400 CIOs nationwide. The study was developed by RHI Consulting and conducted by an independent research firm, which polled CIOs from a stratified random sample of U.S. companies with 100 or more employees.

    32 percent of CIOs cited networking as the area experiencing the most growth within their IT departments.

    Internet/intranet development was also strong - 18 percent of all technology executives surveyed said it was the fastest area of expansion.

    Within the networking category, the job titles mentioned most by CIOs as being in strong demand were network administrators, network managers and specialists.

    Transition Assistance Online

    March 03, 1998

    The end of the Cold War gave rise to the so-called "Peace Dividend".

    But for the hundreds of thousands of servicemen and women who are, in effect, losing their jobs as a result of force reductions, the "dividend" may well have a bitter taste.

    In fact, according to Transition Assistance Online, over a quarter of a million people will make the transition from military to civilian life over the next year.

    Most of these people have only worked for the military. They have had little or no experience working in the civilian sector.

    Sound familiar?

    TAOnline's site (TAO) is available for former and current service-members to submit their resumes using the unique TAS software, via email or snail mail.

    Employers are able to search the TA0 resume bank and post employment and banner ads. TAO's employment opportunities cover a wide spectrum of professions with such well-known companies as McDonnell Douglas, Hughes, Keane Federal, Comsat, Logicon and Amoco.

    In addition, TA0 provides information on starting one's own business, franchising, and other career alternatives.

    As part of its development, the site plans to offer information on veteran's benefits and reserve matters, and an electronic store will offer products and services of particular interest to former service-members.

    The site is also launching a new Transition Seminars Program (TSP), which will provide "hands-on" training in job search tactics, resume preparation, interviewing skills, and networking. An added attraction will be the presence of major business recruiters looking to hire those with military experience.
