    The New Employment Reality - How to Get the Job

    in Jobs

    June 18, 2015 - LIVING A RICHER LIFE ~ Life Changing Talk Radio

    THEME: The New Employment Reality - How to Get the Job

    INTERVIEW GUEST: Beverly A. Williams

    Beverly A. Williams is an attorney, author, legal consultant, and lecturer. Beverly specializes in employment and labor law issues. She teaches seminars in Rutgers University’s School of Management & Labor Relations and Center for Management Development. Beverly is the author of Get the Job • Done, an employment advice book for people of all ages particularly veterans, people with disabilities and recent college and high school graduates.


    Most of us have many phases to our careers, from the typical entry level jobs through mid-career to retirement. In the 20th Century, this seemed to run in a predictable series of stages, and often involved working for the same employer, in the same industry or profession, for decades. Not anymore. Employers restructure or are gobbled up by someone else who moves the jobs to another location or shuts down divisions or functions. If you are just starting your career you should take the time to understand how to conduct the new 21st century job search. If you are seeking the next phase of your career, it may involve a career change or it may simply require changing employers or changing jobs within the same organization. Have you come to grips with the new employment reality? Do you know how to get the job?

    What to Expect in Employment Agency Hearings

    in Legal

    Hearings with agencies are usually performed with the parties, their attorneys, and the administrative law judge over the phone. Administrative law judges handle issues strictly pertaining to employment and are well versed in rules and cases relating to their particular area of law. Sometimes attorneys are involved and other times clients represent themselves pro se. Generally speaking, an employment hearing is like a mini trial where you will present your witnesses and cross examine the other side’s witnesses. You are able to submit documents which you may wish to enter as evidence in advance to both the judge and opposing party. It helps to have these clearly identified and readily accessible during the hearing, especially considering its telephonic nature. You are usually able to have both a closing and opening statement as well. Do not expect a decision at the conclusion of the telephone conversation. The decision will come in writing and it could take several months before any such decision is rendered.

    Tune in to this podcast with Heidi Kuffel to learn more about what to expect during an employment agency hearing.
