Dubai, United Arab Emirates – October 10, 2012

Ethica Institute of Islamic Finance, the world’s most heavily-enrolled Islamic finance training and certification institute, teamed up with executive search guru Shane Phillips of Stanton Chase to deliver "The Job Search System That Never Fails," a live talk attended by professionals and students from over 40 countries.

But how is it possible? Amid the worst job markets in recent – and not so recent – memory, how is one guaranteed to find a job? And do so in less than 90 days, as the talk promises?

Among the techniques taught in the webinar, with a recording now available in its entirety at www.ethicainstitute.com/how_to_get_your_next_job_in_islamic_finance.aspx was a basic strategy that helps set one apart from the crowd: research your target company so that you not only know the company’s vision and direction, but you have some appreciation for the backgrounds of the people you are meeting. This complements the advice Ethica gives its own graduates in their 1-on-1 career counseling sessions when they come out of their 4-month online Certified Islamic Finance Executive (CIFE) program. As Ethica’s career counseling expert advises, "Choose a career you will love and make compensation, location, and other considerations secondary. If you love your career, the rest follows."

 

But what is that special something that one can do to break into the Islamic finance industry? Shane Phillips said, "The future of the job market will belong to the specialist. The days of a generalist skill set are quickly dying out." And in Islamic finance, specialists who have working knowledge of actual products are increasingly in demand. Shane reviews over 1,000 CVs every year and most are poorly done. In the webinar, he summarizes what makes a great CV in a simple formula that takes less than 2 minutes to learn. He also went into how to penetrate your target company, get past the gate keeper and meet with the top brass. And then, of course, the all-important closing: you got the interview; now what? Shane explains that it is not the best candidate who gets the job, but the best convincer.
