Having a “Can Do” Spirit

September 12, 2014

Auburn Hills, Mich. – Since the launch of Reliance One’s R1 Impact – Through Serving Others, we’ve continued to look for more ways to get involved within the community, and in doing so, we came across a great service! We want other local businesses to know about Tyler’s Bottle Service.

April Rheingans, Employee Relations Coordinator at Reliance One, saw a posting on Facebook and immediately knew that we needed to partner with Tyler’s Bottle Service. “I knew as soon as I read his story that we had to team up with Tyler and use his services,” said Rheingans. She followed up by saying, “Tyler makes cashing in your returnables very easy – simply send him an email and he will respond with a day and time to schedule your pickup. He will come to your home or place of business and count your returnables on site and give you your cash that day!”

Tyler is very professional and polite, and we look forward to supporting his business! Please take the time to look at the service Tyler is providing for the community.
He is a recent graduate of Michigan Career & Technical Institute, a trade school for individuals with disabilities. With a true American “Can Do” Spirit, Tyler has started his own business.

Reliance One Leaves a Positive Foot Print in Mount Pleasant

Reliance One has had a reoccurring presence at Central Michigan University recently. On October 5th two Technical Recruiters, Josh Flaugher and Sarah Staroba, attended the Alpha Kappa Psi Career Day that brought in over 700 students. Earlier in the week, Matt VanNorman and Adam Lipski represented Reliance One at the first annual CMU student-athlete career symposium. The event was designed to educate the student-athletes about various topics that are extremely important post-graduation when seeking a job or position. Both Account Managers who are former athletes talked to the scholars about assessing personal values when searching for a company and how to properly follow up after an interview. “Athletes dedicate so much time throughout the season that it was nice to be able to give back to them, our hope is the skills they learned at this presentation will give them a leg up from other candidates,” quoted Matt VanNorman. The situations discussed at the symposium will benefit the students during the hiring process and beyond.

Avoiding These Mistakes Could Help You Land the Job!

While it is quite common knowledge that first impressions are the most important (especially during a job hunt) many applicants fail to understand that the most obvious trip-ups in this regard are the small mistakes made in an application or interview. And while many of the following small steps can be considered “obvious,” more applicants make at least one of these mistakes than not.

  • While a minor typo may seem acceptable (or even expected) by job seekers creating their resume, a single typo can potentially be enough to remove you from the job race. In a competition between two similarly qualified individuals, the one with the flawless resume will win. A typo-free resume also shows an attention to detail that any employer wants in an employee. Don’t just write your resume and send out the first draft in the name of expediency. Use a spell checker, proofread the document multiple times, and allow others to examine it for errors.
  • As with typos, many job hunters feel that adding a little resume padding is a perfectly acceptable tactic. After all, it’s not as if you are actually lying, right? The truth of the matter is even a small deception, if discovered, can immediately disqualify your application from further consideration. And with about 97 percent of employers running background and reference checks as part of the hiring process, exaggeration and embellishment can lead to a serious mark on your perceived integrity.
  • While interviews are perhaps the most nerve-wracking part of the application process and it is normal to practice your performance beforehand, it can actually be damaging to your cause to appear as though you are reading from a script. Employers are looking for a glimpse of the person they will see each day at work, not to be presented with an over-rehearsed collection of canned responses. While you do want to emphasize your abilities and value to a company’s bottom line, it is equally important to demonstrate the traits of our personality that make you a great person to work with.
  • In an interview situation, what you say is important, but so is how you say it. Demonstrating your adeptness at speaking rote and robotic responses, or showing off all of your nervous ticks is not the best way to engage a hiring manager. Instead, prepare to exude confidence, smile, stand up straight, and look everyone you meet in the eye. Don’t make the mistake of undervaluing the role of peers and subordinates in the decision making process – be friendly and engaging to everyone!
  • Finding the perfect professional references can play a prominent role in landing you a job offer, but simply identifying your references on a resume is only part of the job. Your references need to be periodically updated about the jobs for which you are applying so that they can prepare to portray you in the best light within the context of specific responsibilities. Keep them informed of resume changes and make sure they understand how your skills will help you in your new job. The more your references know about you the more helpful they can be to you as contacts.

Career Success Tips

It is about taking responsibility for yourself.
Your career is your own and it belongs to no one else. You have within you the power to create it, to live it as an expression of your unique talents and energy. The other choice is to work at the whim of others, not usually a positive place to be since it is difficult to be inspired and enthusiastic when you believe the choice was someone else’s. Instead, be empowered knowing that you are in control! You may not always choose the activities of your day but you do choose the spirit in which you complete each task. Focus on what you are doing and enjoy the process. Spend some time working to understand yourself in order to better communicate that to your personal network, potential employers, clients, project managers, and partners to secure the best-fit opportunities for you at any moment in time.

It is about creating your future.
It involves self-reflection, learning, researching, planning, and/or talking a little everyday about accomplishments, potential, and opportunity. It is not an obsessive thing though. It is more about going with the flow in a productive manner yet always honoring where you are right now in the process so that your day-to-day work is a source of fulfillment and positive energy.

It is about choices.
Career and personal development is an ever evolving process of making more and better distinctions of who you are and what you want during different phases of your life. Career development is influenced by your whole life…your own changing roles as well as personal and economic circumstances. You will be choosing again and again to create the path of your personal career development throughout your lifetime. You will also make choices each day about how you feel about your work and the attitude and energy you will bring to it and take from it.

It is about rapid change.
Today’s world of work is highly competitive and in a constant state of flux. We can no longer expect to stay with the same company for 20 years then retire. The current environment is much more dynamic with many more opportunities for success when an individual properly manages their own career and personal development.

It is about quality of life.
Think about it, what is a career? It is about the work you do over time and involves such ideas as your productivity, the way you contribute, how you are driven to spend your non-leisure time. Some people are driven to accomplish lots, others are interested in a simpler and more independent existence. Your career becomes the work activities (whether that is paid or unpaid work –such as volunteers, students, parents, and homemakers) that you participate in during your lifetime. Because of the current complexity and speed of life, managing your own career development is an important task for having some control of your quality of life.

It is about hard work completed with ease.
People who know themselves well (by understanding their strengths, what they enjoy, what they want, what they have already accomplished, what they can uniquely contribute, where they are going) are so easy to spot in their enthusiasm and confidence. They are like a breath of fresh air so people and opportunities are drawn to them like vacationers to a sunny beach!
