Change your daily routine.

Speaking through experience changing your everyday routine can make you feel refreshed, like you are on the right path and can increase positive opportunities. When I say ‘changing routine’ I don’t mean change what time you get the train to work or quitting your job completely. Changing routine can be things like; going to bed earlier, waking up earlier or allowing yourself enough time to not rush around in the mornings. When you change your routine, it makes you feel motivated and ready for the challenges you’re going to face perhaps at work that day. I spent many months feeling uninspired not only in the workplace but at home to, as soon as I changed my routine I slowly began to gain more energy, more motivation, less procrastination and general happiness within myself. When I first heard of this idea I was sceptical, I couldn’t understand how changing the way you do things everyday could help you. So, I asked friends and family about this and my step-mum came out with something that just made sense and made me feel inspired to change the way I thought about life! I asked her the question “How can changing your everyday routine make you feel more inspired and motivated?”. Her answer: “Imagine you watch a film, then imagine watching the same film again straight after and again and again and again. Boring, right? Now imagine watching a different film after this. You feel entertained, you have the energy to pay attention and you feel satisfied when the film is over — depending on the film of course. What I am trying to...

Tips on managing a remote team.

Take your team’s productivity and efficiency to new heights with these useful insights. 1.Work Force. Hire the right people. Not everyone is up to the task of working alone, as remote workplaces are usually less social than co-located ones. People on remote teams need to be ok with that. For best results, it’s imperative to hire people who are up for the challenge and capable of working independently, but yet in a small team. 2. Tools Use the right remote work tools. Tools are important in a remote workplace because they enable you to better organise the team and keep everyone on the same page. A truly effective remote work team will have all of the vital remote work tools: email, a file sharing capacity, an instant messaging platform, screen sharing software, project management software and any tools or resources specific to your industry. 3. Process Organise a work plan. One of the most important ingredients in a powerful remote team is process, or how you work. In a virtual team, each person may develop their own processes and procedures that do not mesh with the way other team members are working. It’s best to use a project management system to keep everyone in touch. 4. Goals Articulate project goals and objectives clearly. Help remote workers understand what they are working towards by setting the correct priorities and goals. In a virtual work setting, the importance of having clear project goals and objectives cannot be overstated. These goals should be clearly communicated during meetings, regular check-ins and performance reviews aswell. 5. Communication Keep communication lines open. Communication is key...

How to impress on an interview.

YouTube: How to impress on an interview. We totally understand interviews are nerve racking especially if it is your first. You have to think about an interview like it is your first and last chance to prove to these people that you are the candidate they are looking for. That’s kind of just it! Coby Philips want to make sure you have all the employers boxes ticked so that’s why we have come up with 10 top tips on how to impress the employer on your interview. Let’s begin!   Preparation. You need to do as much research on not only the role you are interviewing for but also the company itself. Once you know the company to the best of your knowledge your nerves and anxiety will drop dramatically, simply because you have nothing to worry about. You’re covered! Smart Dress. It is quite obvious that you would not turn up at a formal corporate interview dressed in a full tracksuit or jeans and T-shirt but you’ll be surprised, it happens. If you are the best person for the job then prove it and dress your best. You’d rather be over dressed then under. Wear a full suit with a tie or a formal black dress and be sure to wear smart shoes. Be Early. When we say be early we don’t mean too early you should revolve your morning around your interview time, they are expecting you at a certain time, sick to it. We’d say arrive there 10-15 minutes early so you can prepare yourself and calm down before you head in. Arriving early shows that...

So tell us about yourself?

Coby Philips works with a variety of high profile clients and if you are one of the people who find themselves with an interview then it is important to make sure you have an ‘Elevator Pitch’ behind you. The potential employer will expect you to know what the role is you are there for and will also expect you to have done research on the company. So what is an Elevator Pitch? The question “so tell us about yourself?” Will come up in an interview almost un-doubtingly every time, so let’s be prepared! It is rather simple! An Elevator Pitch is a basic introduction of yourself, typically summed up in 30 seconds. Follow these 3 steps to help you create your pitch! 1. Introduce yourself! Provide your name, what you do at the moment, if you are completing or have completed a degree mention that to! Keep it simple and to the point. 2. What makes you unique? Describe your previous work/internships but keep it relevant, perhaps find a key moment in your previous roles that would be perfect to demonstrate on the role you have applied for. Think, will this benefit the employer? 3. What is your goal? State your career goals, the types of positions you are interested in, the skills you would like to apply, and what is important to you in a career. Don’t make your goals completely different to the role you are going for. For example, you are going for a corporate role and all you talk about is your passion for the creative industry, they will see that you are not committed...
