What questions will they ask me?On 16 Oct 2001 in Personnel Today Iam in my first HR role, which I moved across into from an admin post, and havebeen made redundant. Can you give some advice on what HR-related questions Icould expect to receive at interviews so I can prepare accordingly?CliveSussams, recruitment consultant, Malpas Flexible LearningAsyou are at a very early stage of your career and have been performingadministration duties, typical interview questions will focus on system andanalysis skills, together with the depth of your HR knowledge, including theextent of advice you give on a daily basis. You should emphasis your HR careeraspirations and, if you are not already studying, give details of your plan toattain CIPD membership.PeterLewis, consultant, Chiumento Questionsthat you may well be asked and should be well prepared for may include:Whathave been your main achievements in your career to date?Whatare your strengths and weaknesses?Howeasy did you find it to make the transition from administration to HR?Whatwere the biggest challenges that you have faced in your last role?Whathave been your greatest achievements in your last HR position?Whatrelevant HR experience and achievements can you bring to us?Whatareas of HR are you particularly interested in? Whatdo you think are the main employment issues facing the HR function?Howproactive do you think the role of HR should be within a company? Why?Ifwe offered you a position, what would be the main goals that you would setyourself in the first three months?Wouldyou be interested in undertaking an HR-related qualification?LouiseWhite, consultant, EJ Human ResourcesYoudon’t say how long you were in your HR role for, so it is difficult to gaugethe level of questioning you might come up against. Assuming that you arelooking for a junior officer role, I wouldn’t expect too many heavily technicalquestions at this level. Attitude at this stage is more important and futureemployers will want to know that you have a strong customer service ethic, aflexible attitude and a willingness to learn. Iwould suggest that you break your previous role down into categories and thinkof examples of work you have done in each area. This way you will be able toget across the depth of your experience if asked specific questions. Previous Article Next Articlelast_img read more

News story: Revolutionary satellite made of ‘the stuff of science fiction’ leaves the UK

first_imgColin Paynter, Managing Director, Airbus Defence and Space UK, said: The UK Space Agency is the largest funder of ESA’s programme of Advanced Research in Telecommunications Systems, (ARTES) which transforms R&D investment into successful commercial products and services by offering varying degrees of support to projects with different levels of operational and commercial maturity.Magali Vaissiere, ESA Director of Telecommunications and Integrated Applications, said: EUTELSAT QUANTUM Platform build at SSTLToday the satellite platform was on view to invited guests at a special event to mark the handover to Airbus who will complete the satellite assembly and testing in Toulouse.Sarah Parker, Managing Director of SSTL said: Eutelsat Quantum is an important programme for both the UK and ESA and a typical example of the success of the ARTES public-private partnership model. Above all, our priority is our industry’s health and readiness for the future market challenges, and partnerships like these that improve the competitiveness, competence and business prospects of the companies we support are what we dedicate our efforts to. The contract to build this EUTELSAT QUANTUM satellite was agreed in 2015. In November last year, Eutelsat and Airbus signed a new contract worth hundreds of millions of pounds that will see components and parts for two further communications satellites assembled in the UK. This means that 6 out of 7 of the company’s next satellites will be partially built in Britain.EUTELSAT QUANTUM – Revolutionising telecoms marketYohann Leroy, Deputy CEO and CTO at Eutelsat said: Up until now, telecommunications satellites were largely fixed, one off, custom machines designed for a specific use or market.Commissioned by Eutelsat and built in Britain by Airbus and Surrey Satellite Technology (SSTL) in Portsmouth and Guildford, EUTELSAT QUANTUM will be able to adapt to new demands in coverage, bandwidth, power and frequency, enabling it to operate from any orbital slot depending on changing market conditions.The development of the core technologies integrated into EUTELSAT QUANTUM is supported by the UK Space Agency and the European Space Agency (ESA) within the framework of a Public-Private Partnership.Dr Graham Turnock, CEO UK Space Agency said:center_img EUTELSAT QUANTUM is a world first and the culmination of many years of research by Eutelsat. Its premium capacity will enable us to offer game-changing optionality and flexibility to our customers in the government, mobility and data markets, who will be able to operate and optimize capacity to adjust coverages in real time, and to do so autonomously. We are delighted to co-operate with our long-standing partners, the ESA, the UK Space Agency and Airbus, and to be able to rely on the world-leading expertise within the UK space industry. Communications satellites like EUTELSAT QUANTUM that can be reprogrammed to adapt coverage and connectivity in orbit could until recently be considered the stuff of science fiction. Through our €480m development funding in the European Space Agency’s ARTES programme, the government’s Industrial Strategy and partnering with industry leaders such as Airbus, we are helping UK businesses transform ‘the stuff of science fiction’ into commercial advantage, resulting in jobs, growth and innovation. The completion of our work on the Eutelsat Quantum satellite platform is an important milestone for SSTL as it represents our first venture into the global commercial telecoms satellite market. The design and assembly of this innovative spacecraft has enabled us to advance the knowledge and skills required to develop highly capable satellite products for the evolving telecoms market, where we are now actively engaged in seeking new opportunities. Combining the payload expertise from Airbus in Portsmouth, and SSTL’s new geostationary platform provides a very sophisticated package for Eutelsat. The satellite is a world first, fully reprogrammable in orbit, and we’re looking forward to seeing it fly.last_img read more

Tuned to emotions

first_imgMadeline Holland ’15 was nervous about coming to Harvard. Then she met the Smileys.“Before I came to school, I was worried that it was going to be an unsupportive environment,” Holland says. “Then, last semester, Student Mental Health Liaisons (SMHL) came to my dorm and gave a presentation about wellness and mental health. I admired them for addressing the difficulties of adjusting to a new place. Afterwards, I talked to one of the ‘Smileys’ about how to get involved.”Today, Holland promotes emotional well-being among her classmates as a liaison. Founded in 2008 by Harvard University Health Services (HUHS), the Smileys have become important partners to the College’s mental health professionals, according to Paul Barreira, director of behavioral health and academic counseling.“It makes all the difference in the world to have students involved,” says Barreira, a former deputy commissioner for the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health. “Surveys show that, when students feel anxious, depressed, or overwhelmed, 70 percent turn to a friend and 60 percent turn to a friend on campus. Only about 10 percent go to a professional. That’s why it makes sense to get undergraduates engaged and involved in taking care of people.”SMHL supports wellness through events and activities that provide information on everything from stress management to clinical depression. Spring is time for one of SMHL’s signature events: the annual Rally for Smiles. On April 18, the Smileys will gather on the Science Center plaza to spread the word about Harvard’s behavioral health resources and wellness at Harvard, and to ask classmates to sign a pledge:“I pledge to be aware of the resources available for well-being at Harvard and to be an advocate for mental health on campus. I understand that simply being there for a friend and talking openly is of benefit to my community, and that everyone deserves to smile.”The Smileys say that the event is designed to foster a caring community at the College, to encourage students to watch out for one another, and to reduce the stigma of mental health issues on campus. Last year, more than 700 members of the College community signed the pledge.In the fall, SMHL helps Barreira and his colleagues conduct depression and anxiety screenings in Annenberg Hall and the Houses. Using $5 gift cards for J.P. Licks as incentive, the Smileys coax between 1,300 and 1,700 students to participate in the event each year. Liaison Annie Douglas ’12 wrote her senior thesis on the screening and says that its results underscore the importance of Harvard’s robust behavioral health resources.“About 10 percent of students score likely or very likely to have depression — usually 9 percent in the likely group and 1 percent in the very likely group,” Douglas says. “The survey is not diagnostic, so what we’re measuring is depression-related distress, which means that people could just be experiencing a rough couple of weeks. Still, it reinforces the relevance of the work that we do. You don’t know who will seek treatment, but everyone has a chance to sit down with a counselor after the screening. The event also informs students about resources so that they can help friends, teammates, classmates.”SMHL also visits Harvard Yard during both fall and spring semesters to conduct workshops at freshman study breaks. Trained by HUHS professionals, the Smileys discuss cases drawn from the experiences of College students who have struggled with depression, anxiety, or some other emotional issue. (The students give permission for the use of their case and always remain anonymous.)Student facilitators present cases in stages and ask the freshmen at each juncture what they think is going on with the subject and how they might respond to the situation. Is the person sleep deprived? Stressed? Is something more serious going on?“It’s important for first-year students to understand the signs of mental health difficulties in their friends or themselves, and to know what to do if they notice those signs,” says freshman proctor Kaitlin Gallo, who invited the Smileys to her entryway. “This workshop calls attention to the realities of mental health difficulties at Harvard and gives students room to get their questions answered and to discuss these issues in a small group.”HUHS officials say that the workshops make a difference. Evaluations indicate that, before the SMHL-led sessions, a majority of freshmen believe that seeking help for emotional problems is a sign of weakness. Afterward, many see it as a sign of maturity.Members of the College community can learn more about stress management, emotional well-being, and Harvard’s behavioral health resources at the Harvard Smiles website. Designed and built by liaison Seth Riddley ’12, the site provides information about common (procrastination, stress) and clinical (bipolar disorder, depression) concerns.“The site is another way to fulfill the mission of SMHL, which is peer education,” Riddley says. “We’re here to let others know about the resources available on campus. We’ve gotten a lot of traffic, which has made our group more well-known. Before we built it, most students wouldn’t have known what SMHL did.”Holland says that she gets tremendous satisfaction from spreading the word about campus resources for addressing mental health issues.“I’m involved with making resources known and easily accessible,” she says. “There are ways to talk about mental health that aren’t threatening or stigmatizing. I’ve gained a lot from the experience, and it means a lot to be part of a group that breaks down barriers for students who need help.”last_img read more

Pop Stardom Awaits! Listen to Lea Michele Break Down Love and Heartbreak in Her New Single ‘Battlefield’

first_img Lea Michele View Comments Glee Star Files After premiering her debut single “Cannonball” last year, Lea Michele has shared another new track titled “Battlefield!” The song serves as the second promotional/buzz single off of her upcoming debut album Louder, which is scheduled for release on March 4 via Columbia Records. Once again written by Sia, “Battlefield” is a haunting piano ballad with Michele delivering a heart-breaking and emotional vocal, singing about a relationship unraveling, with lyrics like, “Peace will come when one of us puts down the gun.” Unlike the more theatrical “Cannonball,” this song feels much more raw and helps you separate Michele from her Glee persona Rachel Berry.

How to battle flat or down auto market

first_img continue reading » With the auto market expected to be flat or down this year compared to 2019, one expert is contending that how well credit unions fare will depend on how well they embrace digital in the space, especially as banks are demonstrating some real progress.Jenn Reid, vice president of strategy and marketing leader, automotive, at Equifax, further suggested what will dictate a CU’s auto lending performance in 2020 is how well CUs conducted a “health check” in late 2019.Digital retailing is exploding in the automotive market and banks have made strong inroads in the area, said Reid, suggesting many credit unions are falling behind banks with online and mobile auto lending.“Credit unions need to improve their digital retailing and reach more of their members who need a car loan,” Reid said. “I think, generally, credit unions are going to see a similar competitive environment, but I think the key will be finding ways to get ahead this year.” ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
