Home is where the work is

Q: Twelve months ago, I was offered a new part-time job, two days a week, working from home. They would give me a laptop and phone; contribute to my broadband and various other perks. I’d always been a bricks-and-mortar type employee and I thought I’d never adjust. A year on, I wouldn’t change it for the world. They’ve offered me a third day per week. I don’t have a question; rather, an observation that if an old dog like me can learn new tricks, no-one should dismissing working from home without first trying it. (YJ, email)

Your Career, Your Choices

Q: “I am a qualified and experienced teacher looking for a permanent teaching post. I have subbed, filled-in and temped for two years now. I know I am a good teacher; I love my job and my students, but am always being pipped at the post when it comes to interview. What might I be doing wrong, please advise?” – AQ (email).

Should I include hobbies on my CV?

Q: I am doing my CV and my sister has my head cracked about putting in my hobbies. “I’m a bookkeeper,” I keep telling her, “they don’t care that I do a bit of acting and play football for the club. It’s not Tom Cruise or Harry Kane they’re hiring.” But, she is adamant. Should I take any heed of her? (DD, email).

Straying off the critical path can be fatal

Q: “I sat on the other side of the table last week for the first time – I was an interviewer. We interviewed seven candidates. Two did really well and clearly had their preparation done. They ended up being the clear 1-2. Two really didn’t have the experience we needed and you could see this dawning on them during the interview. Of the other three, two didn’t talk enough and one just went on and on and completely lost us. His interview lasted 45 minutes but felt like two hours. He finished behind the two who didn’t talk enough. I don’t have a question, just wanted to share that” – DC (email).
