On behalf of the Fllair team, welcome.  My name is Jason and I have been part of Fllair since the very beginning. Behind the scenes, we are a group of career and recruitment professionals that simply want to help people to achieve their career goals. Our goal with Fllair is to provide you with an all-in-one career support platform to help you achieve whatever is important to you.

Fllair can do this in a number of ways.

Going for a new job? Create and share a Fllair profile

A Fllair profile is a personal online resume that tells your career story in a better way.  Once you have added all of your employment history, check how it looks by going to the View Profile menu item in the top left corner (click on your name).

You can share your private link when applying for a job to stand out from the crowd.  You can even create a personal video to tell your story properly.  Simply head to the Profile left menu item to get started.

Once you have created your Fllair profile, you will have a unique URL that you can share with others. Go to Profile>Details>Share.

Here’s mine: https://app.fllair.com/u/jasonbuchanan/details

To edit, delete, or hide an item or detail on your profile, simply click the three dots beside the item.

**Marking an item as protected, means nobody will be able to see these items from your public profile.

You can learn more about creating your video here, or if you would like us to help you check out this item in our marketplace.

Need expert help? Explore our marketplace.

If your career is really important to you, check out our Fllair marketplace.  We have a growing range of career support services and learning programs to choose from.  You can elect to be pre-interviewed and share this information with prospective employers, you can find a career coach to help keep you on track to achieve your goals, or perhaps just get a bit of help with your Fllair video profile.

Perhaps Career Club is for you

We created Career Club as a cost-effective way for you to get access to premium content and receive exclusive discounts on all marketplace items. Introductory pricing of just $5 per month is in place for a limited time only.

We are looking forward to being part of your career success. If you would like to get in touch with us, just use the chat bubble at the top right of the screen.

Wishing you every success in your Career.

5 Things You Need to Know for a Successful Career Transition

Since the beginning of 2021, we have noticed an increase in the number of people looking to ‘transition’ into a career that they will find more interesting or more suitable. However, this is not always an easy thing to do. Job advertisements always seem to ask for a number of years of experience and if you don’t have it, what can you do? Here are five things you need to know to transition successfully into a new career:

What is the job market doing?

Our highly experienced Consultants are here to assist you with reliable information about the current job market & line you up with potential roles.

Be prepared and realistic about the change

Know what you need, identify your skills, set realistic goals & time frames. Our Learning and Development Consultant can assist with your resume and identifying all of your invaluable transferable skills for your career transition.

Know your mind

Target a change for the better. We can help guide you through the process with a tailored career coaching session to find a role that aligns with your values.

Be honest

Be honest about your skills and capability but also realise your transferable skills and the value you can bring to an organisation.

Seek support from our team to be prepared with the best responses for those challenging interview questions so you can present yourself with confidence.

Establish your brand

Be clear about who you are and the value you can bring to an organisation. Increase your self awareness and identify your strengths through psychometric assessment and debrief sessions with our Learning and Development Consultant.

Job Search Trends to Look Out For This 2021

Regardless of what happens in the future, COVID-19 has changed many things forever. Here are the job search trends that you need to be aware of and prepare for to ensure you give yourself the best chance of achieving your career goals:

1. Virtual interviews

Since the start of this pandemic, there has been a big shift in how recruiters conduct job interviews. In an instant, face to face interviews were replaced with Zoom calls and virtual meetings. Now, companies and organisations are hiring people without even meeting them in person. This was almost unthinkable just a year or two ago.

And even though we have a vaccine, this does not mean that virtual interviews will be gone and will go back to the traditional in-person meetings. Since virtual interviews have become successful, this is likely to continue. Your ability to impress someone over a video call is likely to be the difference between getting that job or not. Our suggestion is to practice with a friend or recruiter first, and think about the environment that it will take place. Make sure you are in a quiet room with a white or clean background. You also need to dress professionally for the occasion.

If you need help when it comes to improving your interview skills, we have experts that can help you. Check out the Fllair marketplace or connect with our consulting experts if you have any questions.

2. Online networking event

Even though COVID-19 prevented many networking events, this does not mean we can’t connect and network with other professionals. Online networking events have become popular because of this.

There are many local groups and large online professional networks who are arranging networking events online that you can participate in. Aside from that, there is also LinkedIn that you can use to connect with other professionals.

With the power of the internet, it is still possible to create connections and build opportunities today. It takes effort, but the rewards are there for those who put in the time.

3. Improve your skills

With many people getting laid off, the need for professional development and upskilling has never been so important. Whether you want to stay in your current job or get a better job in the future, it is important to improve your skills or learn new skills to stay in the game.

Improving skills or learning new skills today is very easy with the thousands of resources available online.

Also, here at Fllair, we are offering resources as well as consultations to help you improve and develop your skills. Simply check out the marketplace for more information.

4. Create a video resume

In 2021, if you want to stand out, you need to make a good first impression. But how do you do that when hundreds of people are applying for the same job as you? You need to make your online resume stand out, and one way to do that is with a Fllair video resume. This will ensure recruiters can quickly get a grasp of who you really are and what value you can add.

If you need a little flair or colour on your online resume, we have a whole bunch of downloadable templates. Create your profile and then simply head to the Tools menu to download your resume into Word.

5. Remote work will continue

2020 is the year when almost all of us shifted to working from home, which is also unthinkable in the past. But it turned out that working from home gave a lot more advantages and benefits to professionals and organisations.

Aside from health and safety considerations, it also gave companies the opportunity to reduce costs for things like office utilities and in some cases office space. Employees also were able to avoid stressful commutes and some were able to achieve a better work-life balance.

With this, you need to keep your video communication skills sharp. You may also need to set up a portion of your home into an office to make sure you are able to work and focus sufficiently.

These job search trends are truly a great shift from what we used to know when it comes to recruitment and job search. By adapting to these trends, we will be putting ourselves in a better position to achieve our career goals.

Tips To Boost Your Career In 2021

It’s 2021 and many of us are planning to achieve great things this year, especially after 2020 became the blocker that temporarily halted many of our career and life plans.

And if you are one of the many people out there who are excited to calibrate their career plans for better opportunities, here are some career boosting tips that can help you.

1. Invest in improving your personal branding

Personal branding is very important and valuable. No matter what industry you’re in, it pays to have a great branding to help people notice and remember you.

It also helps you boost your confidence as well as establish a memorable image in people’s mind of what you want to be.

One way to improve your branding is revamping your resume. We, at Fllair, developed creative designs for your online resume to give a little flair to your profile and branding.

Check out our downloadable resume option in the Tools menu.

2. Upgrade your skills

A lot of people lost their jobs in 2020, with employers becoming even more picky when it comes to finding the best person for jobs that are available. With this major shift in recruitment and employment, you need to stand out. And one way of standing out is to upgrade or learn new skills.

That is why we, at Fllair, created a range of learning and career ‘helpers’ to help you upgrade and boost your skills.

One of our career support offerings is the Leadership Career Accelerator program. We help you take your leadership career to the next level by helping you discover your strengths and blind spots.

Learn more about our learning and career helpers here.

3. Start networking and creating connections

Social distancing is now part of the new normal, but it doesn’t mean you can’t network and expand your connections. We are in a digital era, so connecting online through social media platforms like LinkedIn can be an advantage.

There are also online networking events that you can join to meet professionals and possible career opportunities.

4. Take care of your health

A great career isn’t worth much if you don’t have your health. Investing in taking good care of your health is an important part of achieving long term career goals. It’s not just about watching what you eat and doing exercise, learning how to communicate effectively with others and learning how to have a healthy relationship with stress are also vitally important. If you are interested in ways to improve your wellbeing, be sure to check out our marketplace.

These are just a few effective ways to boost your career this 2021. If you need more help when it comes to job search, career development, leadership and well-being at work, simply contact our support team.
