面試後自我檢討,反省臨場時的優劣之處,對於改善下一次的Interview表現,會有很大幫助。人力資源顧問指出,一場面試的嚴重扣分位,除了應徵者對於公司背景、職位要求、行業情況了解不足外,很多時一些不自覺的微細舉動,同樣會導致失分。如不想在見工競技場上GG,面試後作出檢討,事在必行! 「見工面試的程序和題目其實大同小異,所以面試後的檢討,一定要做。」安俊人力資源顧問董事總經理周綺萍表示,求職者需要檢討的,除了對答時的流暢度、內容是否夠豐富等Interview的骨幹外,某些大家以為微不足道的事,其實亦足以令候選人墮入扣分伏位。「面試其實是一個追求不犯錯的Process,只要你一犯錯,就會扣分。一些恰當的表現,例如準時面試,是理所當然的,所以應徵者不會因此獲得額外加分。」 反而對於面試經驗尚淺的Fresh Grad來說,最易遭受扣分的「失敗位」,通常是以下6大情境: 1. 一個小動作,足以鑄成一大個錯 見工面試時心情緊張,是人之常情,因為戰戰兢兢而不自覺地做出一些小動作,而又被面試官看在眼裡,往往都會被定義為「不恰當行為」,難逃扣分一劫。當中包括:玩手指、在座椅上搖來晃去兩頭轉、不斷撥那長長秀髮、沒有Eye Contact⋯⋯ 2. 面試時的節奏感,與面試官唔啱Beat!...

意外就是意料之外,無論任何工作都可能發生意外!打工仔不幸工傷,無論嚴重與否,也要通報工傷。偏偏很多人也不知道自己的權利,甚至覺得報工傷會麻煩到公司,寧願自己請幾日病假休息便算。究竟工傷後打工仔要怎樣做?  其實通報工傷並不麻煩,既是保障自己,也是避免僱主犯法。工傷索償過程大致分為三個步驟,將出現三種工傷情況。其中一種:「病假多過七天 + 可能導致永久喪失工作能力」就是大多數人認知中的工傷,除了辦理病假跟進手續,還涉及判傷。讓小編詳細解釋判傷流程,一步一步教你如何在工傷後獲得補償。 根據《僱員補償條例》,若僱員在工作期間,因工遭遇意外而引致受傷或死亡,僱主是有責任支付補償。補償內容包括三大類:工傷病假錢、醫療費、喪失工作能力補償金。 第一步:通知僱主 當打工仔在工作期間發生意外,無論情況嚴重與否,當下一定要通知上司/老闆!別以為只是少少頭暈或跌傷撞傷,就打算自己解決。若過了兩天,才發現傷勢變嚴重,不得不求醫,此時你才通報上司,他有可能會質疑你的傷患是否因為工傷所致。而且僱主亦要就你的工傷意外在14天內呈報勞工處,所以為了保障自己,只要發生意外,就應立即通知上司。若情況許可,也應通知在場的同事,他們有機會之後要做見證人,向僱主講述發生意外的經過。 第二步:前往求醫 通知僱主後,無論情況嚴重與否,你都要立即到公營醫院或註冊醫生的診所接受檢查及治療,求醫時一定要向醫生說明是次意外的原因是工傷,並詳細交代事發經過。身體是自己的,求醫既是確保得到及時治療,同時也是求個安心(無事就主僱雙方都放心)。因為醫生的醫療報告是證明工傷的關鍵,如果報告上沒有寫明工傷,之後就無法作出任何賠償。 若醫生認為你需要病假休息,就記得拿取病假紙。記住是要拿病假紙而非到診紙。因為前者才是法例規定下可作為賠償的証據,若你無法出示病假紙,就無法獲得工傷病假錢。...
