Attitude Meter During Interviews
Most of us may think only our skills and qualifications
are evaluated or considered to decide our suitability for
 the vacant position. This is not true at all. The attitude
shown by candidates during interviews is a major factor
in selection since attitude matters not only in business
but also in dealing with co-employees on daily basis.
Will you ever recruit a person who has excellent skills,
knowledge, experience, qualification but do not have the
 right attitude? This explains why attitude is an important factor.
The Common Resume Errors that avoid from
 you receiving interview calls!
Resumes are your marketing tools and you have to take
 maximum care in preparing them. Here are a few mistakes
that look simple but complicate your entire job search.
Have you applied for hundreds of job openings and received
 no or insufficient response?
Then this is a must read for you.
Resume Length
Avoid Resumes that are too long or too short.
If you are a fresher, it’s ideal to have your CV one page
 and if you are well experienced, then 2 pages are ideal.
 More than 2 pages is necessary only if you have details
 you can’t avoid or details which will give yourself an edge
over others in competition. Highlight only the jobs which are
directly relevant to the position you apply. No one wants to
 know in details what you did 15 or 20 years back.
Contents copied & pasted from the Job Advertisements
Do not use Resumes that copy/paste text from the job advertisement.
Never do it and the employer know what he wrote on his advertisement.
Use of Bold Letters
Do not use bold letters for every other word or sentence.
 Use bold letters only to highlight the most important points.
If you feel everything is important, better leave it without being bolded.
Resume Print out & background
Avoid Resumes printed on decorative paper. Always
 use a plain white background. Avoid flashy page borders and shading.
Finally
Never copy & paste information from several resumes.
It results in repetition of the same points presented in a different way,
increase in length & confusion.
We have personally seen 2 year experienced applicants holding 20 years
experienced guy’s resumes. Don’t you think it sounds ridiculous?
They are nothing but victims of “copy & paste from several resumes” issue.
Remember, a well presented resume is the first essential
step in your job search. Your resume is the marketing tool
 for you. Best resume gets you the best impression and attention.

Are you prepared to face your interview confidently?
Here are a few valuable tips that can help you prepare yourself better for your interviews.
Never be negative about anything – including former bosses, companies, or employees.
Never get into an argument with the interviewer.
Always show loyalty to former employers.
Be on your toes at all times and with every person you meet: secretary, company employees you pass in the hallway, etc. If invited to lunch or dinner, remember that’s part of the interview as well. Remember – job interview behavior is different from normal work behavior, just as interview dress is different from normal job dress.
If you wish, take notes – but ask first.
Don’t ask the employer about salary until you’re offered the position. To get into a salary discussion too early will handicap your negotiating ability. Be sure the employer wants to hire you first, then you will negotiate from strength.
Remember the above and apply them during your interviews.

With the release of yet another Windows Server operating system comes the need for currently certified IT pros to update their certifications and for new IT pros to start the certification process. As you might expect, new courses are available for the newest Microsoft products to hit the market. While many of the exams that include Microsoft’s new products are still in beta, IT pros can still take these exams and become certified. Eventually, these exams will exit beta and become production.
Throughout this article, for each exam listed, I’ve also copied the list of objectives for each exam so that you can get an idea for what you’d need to do in order to see success at the end of the day.

Already certified?

If you’re already certified, depending on your certification, you may be able to take just a single exam to obtain your MCSA: Windows Server 2012 certification. If you have one of the following certifications, you need only take Exam 417: Upgrading Your Skills to MCSA Windows Server 2012:
  • MCSA: Windows Server 2008
  • MCITP: Virtualization Administrator
  • MCITP: Enterprise Messaging Administrator
  • MCITP: Lync Server Administrator
  • MCITP: SharePoint Administrator
  • MCITP: Enterprise Desktop Administrator

Not yet certified?

If you’re not yet certified at all, the process for obtaining your MCSA: Windows Server 2012 certification is a bit more challenging and involves taking and passing a series of three exams, one of which is still in beta at present:
  • Exam 410: Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012
    • Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012
    • Introduction to Active Directory Domain Services
    • Managing Active Directory Domain Services Objects
    • Automating Active Directory Domain Services Administration
    • Implementing Networking Services

    • Implementing a Group Policy Infrastructure
    • Managing User and Service Accounts

    • Implementing Failover Clustering
    • Implementing Disaster Recovery
    • Implementing AD CS
    • Implementing AD FS

Interesting in moving beyond the MCSA?

If you want to move beyond the MCSA: Windows Server 2012 certification and obtain MCSE: Server Infrastructure or MCSE:   Desktop Infrastructure, there are an additional two exams that you must pass, depending on the certification.
MCSE: Server Infrastructure:
  • Exam 413: Designing and Implementing a Server Infrastructure
  • Exam 414: Implementing an Advanced Server Infrastructure
MCSE: Desktop Infrastructure
  • Exam 415: Implementing a Desktop Infrastructure (requires some knowledge of System Center 2012 Configuration Manager)
    • Create and Maintain Desktop Images
    • Design and Deploy Desktops
    • Plan and Implement a Remote Desktop Services Infrastructure
    • Design and Configure Desktop Settings
    • Manage and Maintain a Desktop Infrastructure
  • Exam 416: Implementing Desktop Application Environments (requires some knowledge of System Center 2012 Configuration Manager)
    • The following list includes the topic areas covered on this exam.
    • Design and Prepare the Application Environment
    • Design and Implement a Presentation Virtualization Environment
    • Design and Implement an Application Virtualization Environment
    • Deploy, Manage, and Maintain the Application Environment
    • Design Business Continuity for the Desktop and Application Environment
MCSE also requires recertification exams every three years in order to remain certified.

Summary

MCSA and MCSE certifications remain ways by which IT pros can demonstrate their knowledge to potential employers and increase their skills in the market.
