  • Topic of this Week: "When should you change your job? (January 6, 2018)"

     There are many times in your life you feel the urge to change jobs to get rid of the current boring situation, or sometimes you wonder if you should create a challenge for yourself to generate an opportunity to enhance your career? All you need is a suitable time. But how can you know when it is the suitable time, when is the thought of being bored at work is only temporary sometimes.   

    Changing career has never been easy. Because when deciding to change job that means you have to change your familiar environment, get rid of your habits, and require a lot of effort to adapt to new areas, to absorb new skills. So there exists tremendous risk of failure. Especially, when you are married people with pressure to earn money to take care of your lovers or to feed your children.  
    On average, a person can change from 3 to 5 jobs in their life for a very simple reason: they don't have the right choice for themselves. Although they have researched and followed the instructions to choose a suitable job, but it is unlikely that the job will be sustainable. Making the wise decision in your career move is the best way to ensure a successful career and a bright future.

    Should we lie in the interview? (December 9, 2018)

    (09:23:33 AM 07/12/2018)

    According to award-winning social psychologist Ron Friedman, 81% of people lie during their job interviews. This staggering statistic implies that job interviews might soon become a thing of the past. Friedman suggests that interviews create a situation in which applicants are dishonest because they think lying might be the only route to a job offer.
       We’re usually told that lying is bad. It’s not hard to see why. Lying is a form of deception that fills the world with distrust, is morally wrong, and becomes a chore on the liar’s mind. On the other hand, lying is human nature and even necessary at certain times. Let’s not kid ourselves. Always telling the truth isn’t appropriate in society. After all, white lies exist for a reason. They can help us move past awkward situations without causing any real harm to anybody else. One example that comes to mind is a job interview. To be clear, we’re not suggesting you lie to a potential employer so you get a job offer.
       Do you ever find yourself suspicious that an applicant is lying during a job interview, but you’re not sure how to uncover the truth without resorting to over-the-top interrogation techniques? The science of textual analysis tells us that truth-tellers actually speak differently than truth-stretchers. A candidate who lacks any situational experience working on teams but wants to lie about it, will have to construct a story, and the cognitive strain of this often reveals itself in a lack of complexity, where explanations about events (that didn’t happen) sound unrealistically straightforward or vague. Sometimes telling the whole truth about yourself in a job interview may mean losing a position to a better-qualified candidate. But the alternative - lying about your degree, qualifications, or experience for short-term gain - inevitably will come back to haunt you, may lead to serious repercussions when the truth eventually comes out.
     

    QUESTION TO DISCUSS:
    1. Have you ever told lies in job interview? Can you share your experiences.
    2. What do you often tell lies in job interview and Why do you need to tell lies about that “thing”?
    3. Pros and cons of telling lies in job interview? Do you think that it’s good or bad when telling lie in job interview?
    4. How to harmonize between “ being frank “ and “ cheating”?
