The lure of working in Australia

Work Australia has always been seen as one of those final frontiers for English speakers looking to find the perfect balance between a promising professional career and good quality life with plenty of sunshine and fantastic beaches.
Obviously there are also drawbacks that prevent or delay many people willing to move there, the physical distance between Europe or the States, plus immigration laws and fluctuations in the job market can drive away potential candidates to move there.
The positive news for 2015 is that after a slight period of stagnation the job market seems to be opening up again. As of this year, companies will be allowed to bring in skilled workers for up to a year without applying for a 457 skilled worker category visa. Language tests will not be required as a mandatory step. Neither are employers obliged to prove that they have looked for Australian candidates before interviewing foreign and qualified professionals for specific roles.
This means an opening up of opportunities for professional advancement for expats looking to move there plus a more competitive and diverse workforce for local companies.
According to various jobsites and Mitula own search results from real time users the most sought out jobs will be in the fields of IT, teaching, engineering, catering, media management and creative arts.
2015 seems to be a year for real recovery and the opening up of the job market to foreign professionals might seem like a valid proof so if you had this goal set in mind, now might be the time to take the leap forward.

15 Tips to Succeed in Your Next Job Interview

Although we are completely submerged in a technologically advanced world, and new gadgets have taken over our day to day lives, there are some things that just don´t change. Amongst these is the (often feared) job interview. Social media often plays an important role in the selection process but, even then, in the end there will always be an in-person interview, a one-on-one, between the company and the candidate that could possibly throw everything away or could help elevate you to an almost sealed deal. This is why we´re going to give you our advice on how to tackle an interview.

To go up against the feared interview and to obtain the best results –getting hired-, we need to control and remember how we got there: the network that we have established with the company, the information that we have given them or the ones they´ve had access to, and the resources the company has utilized to investigate more personal aspects of ourselves as prospects. In the latter point, we are specifically talking about the formerly mentioned social media, where we need to take care of what we say, what we do, and who can have access to what.

It is also imperative that we expand whatever knowledge we have about the company to be able to contribute with concrete ideas when it comes to explaining how we fit the profile that´s being requested, that we can take part in company projects, and to show real knowledge and genuine interest for the company in which we want to work in.
When we are interested in something, we dive into it and it becomes something “ours.” This is what the company is expecting of the candidate who will obtain the position. The interview is the ideal moment to show and confirm this, so: “personalize your resume and take advantage of collaboration.¨

Various types of interviews exist, every interviewer is different, and every job opportunity demands different and specific knowledge and aptitudes… Meaning, it is a convolution of things that altogether do not lend themselves to become a stable art form where you can get a step-by-step list of what to do. Either way, it does not hurt to go over one or two lists that could possibly come in handy (or not). Here, at mitula we created 15 tips for job interviews:

1. Be punctual.
2. Watch how you dress and take care of your personal hygiene. Dress properly, according to your personality and the job you aspire to have.
3. Have in hand copies of your resume/CV.
4. Be proper. Greet them with a handshake and a smile on your face, look at them in the eyes, don´t sit until you´re told to, don´t treat them casually unless they do to you, and, whatever happens, bid them farewell and give them thanks.
5. Turn off your cellphone, don´t smoke, and if they offer you a drink ask for a non-alcoholic one.
6. Express yourself in a clear, concise, structured manner and finish your sentences. Watch your language and avoid silences, searching hard for a word, one syllable answers or answers that cut the conversation short, and fillers.
7. Always speak with education and respect for your past jobs, companies, bosses, or coworkers.
8. Be positive. Turn your “weaknesses” around and avoid “no.” Don´t bed for the position –but show enthusiasm- and don´t try to find out in that moment if you have any possibility of being hired.
9. Maintain your posture and hold good eye contact. Sit straight, not at the edge of your chair (shows insecurity) or not hunched over (shows lack of respect). Don´t put your elbows on top of the table, don´t cross your arms (it´s a defensive position), and avoid any tics and habits such as biting your nails or clicking your pen (amongst others).
10. Define yourself with five qualified adjectives. Justify this. It is not necessary to fully describe in chronological order your life´s work.
11. Be proactive. Ask about any promotion possibilities, in the company or in the job position.
12. Don´t sell yourself to high or too low, indicate a minimum and a maximum and do it when they ask you.
13. Be honest.
14. Use your common sense.
15. Look at the fitire. Remember everything you have achieved thus far and set goals for where you want to be professionally in the future and the near future.

Obviously, interviewing is a before, during, and after process. All three parts have their importance. Tackling all three parts together gives us a better shot and makes every interview we do a “special” one. In every process you have to find these aspects that will make your process special and will help you stand out from the rest of the candidates.

Five points to know if an organization looks for talent when hire

When we start our job career we dream to reach the success, get to the top of the World.

To reach our goals we can walk alone or join an organization. If we choose the second choice it must be carefully thought. Not all organizations will give us the occasion to get it.

Not only its position in the market or its turnover, also the talent management will be important in our job career development.

We want an organization wich attract, find and retain talent.

Para poder saber si una organización apuesta por atraer y retener el talento hay ciertos comportamientos a los que podemos prestar atención y van a ayudarnos a tomar la decisión de seleccionar en dónde queremos desarrollar nuestra vida laboral.

To know if an organization bet for attract and hold talent there are some beheviours we can attend. In base of this, we can evaluate if thas organization is good for our job career.


These behaviours are:

1. They take care about people

For this organizations its employees are its more important active.

Identify the most talented workers and get their loyalty and engagement turning them into brand ambassador. Recognize the achievements, reward success and tolerate fails. All of it individually.

Group is the most important factor here. Ego must be left aside. Although this organizations treat every worker individually. They integrate workers into organization´s success.

2. They take care about communication.

Organizations wich publish their vacancies on its websites, or its social profiles. The more the ad is seen and the more response it has, the more probabilities to attract talent.

These organizations also communicate about itselves. They show how they are inside and its corporate culture. They don´t only do things, they communicate what they do and how.

Internal and external Communications are equal for them. They have internal communications channels where information flows free creating one the bigger active in the organization.

3. They look for the engagement.

Engegament between workers and organization is the basis for a long and sincere relation where two of them get a win win relationship.

Career plans are a tool wich organizations use to stablish a relationship with their workers in long term. With a career plan organizations show their intention to let its workers grow and develop inside the organization. For workers, a career plan eliminates uncertainty about their future.

4. They are socially responsible.

Responsability, honesty and credibility are values present in all socially responsible organization. These values must be projected to the outside, they must reach the talent wich they want to attract. If an organization projects a bad image to the outside talent will run away. If these organizations can attract talent they hardly can keep it.

5. They are innovative.

Organizations wich want to attract talent are in a continuos innovation and development proccess.

Innovation is an important part in talent attraction. In turn, talent feedbacks innovation. Organizations wich give conditinons and means to its workers to create and develop their projects get more from them. Also these organizations become different and place in a leading position respect its competitor.

Do you agree with this points to evaluate an organization when we look for a job? Is  important for you i fan organization take talent into account?
