Service Description

CAREER GUIDANCE A career is a 40-year marathon and not a 4-year sprint and so finding a job that matches your talents and interests is the most important step in embarking on a successful career path. Therefore, there may be literally nothing more valuable than investing in a session of Career Counselling with us. We arrange a one-to-one session to explain and clarify the different roles and responsibilities. Sessions are scheduled to build capacity for you in person or on Skype/Zoom/MS-Teams, and are tailored to individual’s specific needs. CV CONSTRUCTION Once you have decided what role to apply for, the first step is to build a good CV/Resume. It cannot get you a job but it can definitely get you out from consideration for a job. Our CV construction process consists of sitting with you and explaining the basic principles of how to sell yourself. We help you build a new professional CV which will reflect you as an individual and highlight your unique qualities and achievements. COVER LETTER Cover letters should be different for every job seeker. They allow an opportunity for your personality to come through and elaborate on your unique qualifications, especially the soft skills related to the role. It gives you a chance to show your motivation for that company and the job. At Business Derivatives, we help you to understand the basic building blocks of writing a cover letter and help to construct them for each company you want to apply to. COMPETENCY QUESTIONS IN APPLICATIONS In addition to the CV and/or cover letter, many organisations have a few competency questions in their applications. These are usually centred on the areas of why you think you are best suited to that role in that company. Usually you are given a fixed amount of words such as 250 or 300 to answer these questions. Hence besides assessing your motivation for applying to that role, these questions are also looking at how well you can communicate in that short amount of space. COMPETENCY INTERVIEW As the name suggests, a competency interview is to evaluate your competencies. You are usually asked to describe a past experience where you described the said competency. While there are dozens of competencies, they can be broadly divided into the following categories: • Teamwork and Leadership • Analytical and problem solving skills • Communication skills – both verbal and written • Multi-tasking and time management • Facing a failure • Displaying ethical behaviour
