Why To Seek The Assistance Of Professional Business Consultants

The business consulting method mainly includes working with clients to solve their vital business issues while assisting them in making better decisions in business. In this field of consulting, a business consultant mainly works closely with the clients so that he/she can come with an exact picture of how the present business rules are, what the future requirements of business are and the necessary steps that are required to do the gap analysis between future and present state and can offer the best options to close that gap. Consultants mainly work best for those people or organizations, who come with clearly defined objects or projects.

Most of the startup companies have a common statement about these consulting services and as per them, these are mainly meant for the established and large businesses. But this is not true. Actually, business consulting is capable of improving the efficiency and the performance of companies of almost all sizes, whether it is a start-up or an already established one. For both types of businesses, the business consultants offer high-quality information and well-informed advice on different topics on empowering firms to get the highest potential and commerce.

In this content, you will find the reasons why it is a must for the business owners and entrepreneurs to consult with the business consultants to run their businesses properly.

  1. The market is changing continuously: There are different catalysts, which can dramatically change both the industrial and commercial landscapes. In case a company is not ready for that shift, it will be left behind. Factors like decreasing market share, tightening environmental regulations and emerging IT innovation work as the accelerators that drive companies to change. And to help them in dealing with all the changes, the business consultants offer the companies advice on almost all types of matters related to the authority of the company starting from overseeing the workforce development to acquiring new tools.
  2. Honest opinion and information and the major tools to success: For those companies, which are eager to do long-term business goals, it is important to be aware of the areas, which should be focused on and for what reason. It requires an honest opinion and advice along with detailed information, which is necessary to make the right decision. Running a business successfully is not about depending on the instinct, gut reaction or luck. Rather, it is mainly about realistic analysis, careful calculation and practical strategy development- as a whole, the things with which a business consultancy can guide.

Benefits of Consulting an Audiologist

Audiologists are licensed professionals who are experts in the diagnosis and management of disorders related to your auditory and balance systems. There is a mistaken belief that hearing loss or problems with balance only occur in elderly people. The truth is these disorders can happen to anyone, from infants to seniors. The causes are diverse and numerous. Hearing loss should be closely monitored if you have a history of ongoing exposure to loud noises, ear infections, genetic hearing impairment, tinnitus, or head injury.

While looking for a qualified audiologist, don’t be afraid to ask them questions regarding their practice. You should seek a medical professional who is aware of the latest research and evaluative methods and who uses the latest technology. The days of clunky, old-fashioned hearing aids are out. There are hearing aids nowadays that fit the shape of your ears discreetly and provide comfort in addition to efficiency.

Hearing aids are not your only solution. You may also consider hearing rehabilitation, where you work with a professional on practicing speech, reading, and listening skills. Make sure that an audiologist can provide you with multiple choices for a long-lasting, effective remedy. You should not be limited to just one solution, and the best medical professionals will be able to cater to your lifestyle and offer you a comfortable plan.

According to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, “Hearing and balance disorders are complex with medical, psychological, physical, social, educational, and employment implications.” Therefore, these hearing professionals have the important task of minimizing any negative impact you might be experiencing. With the right provider, you could see dramatic changes in your quality of life.

There are two common disorders in this field. One is dizziness, and the other is tinnitus. Dizziness is when people experience vertigo, unsteadiness, lightheadedness, and spatial disorientation. It may seem like a simple spell of faintness, but it is important to determine the cause and to keep track of the symptoms so that an audiologist can properly evaluate you.

Tinnitus is when people experience a ringing sensation in their ears when there is no outside cause. This condition is often followed by hearing loss. Tinnitus could be caused by medications, age, noise exposure, allergies, head injury, or ear diseases. A medical professional can help you find relief and offer hearing protection if necessary.

According to How’s Your Hearing, there are three ways that hearing aids can help tinnitus. One, by improving your hearing and reducing stress from straining to hear. Two, by focusing on background sound to mask the tinnitus. And three, by stimulating your hearing nerves to increase effectiveness.

Whatever the case may be, do not hesitate to search for a qualified and experienced audiologist.

Interview With Dr Michael Baron (CEO, Baron Consulting)

As an international student studying in Australia (I am Master of Accounting student at Monash University), I am well and truly worried whether on completion of my degree, I will be able to secure a professional job related to my field of study. This is why when one of my friends ”boasted” that his Management Lecturer also happens to be a recruitment consultant and is always happy to provide his students with friendly advice and assistance with getting professional jobs in Australia, I tried to ”lure” my dear friend to help me arrange an informal meeting with that lecturer to have a chat about my future employment prospects. This is how I met Dr Michael Baron, (CEO of Baron Consulting – Melbourne-based recruitment and training agency). Michael appears to be some kind of ”cult figure” for his students who regard him more like a mentor rather than a lecturer. I truly enjoyed our conversation and I feel that Michael’s advice is of relevance not only to me but also to many other students and recent graduates. This is why I asked Michael whether he minded if I recorded his answers to my questions so I could share them with others. Luckily, he did not ï��! So here comes our impromptu interview:

Michael, as an overseas student who has no Australian work experience at all and only 3-months of professional work experience back in China I am naturally a bit worried. I am one year away from completion of my Master of Professional Accounting degree at Monash and to be frank, I am not entirely sure what to do next? How to apply for jobs?

Good question, Violet. Turning over a new leaf and starting a new stage in life is never easy. However, it gives you no excuse to give up even before you start trying ï��! The very first step is to make good resume. As far as I know, all Universities including yours provide students with a resume-making service free of cost (well, kind of free of cost – since they are obviously funded through yours and others’ fees) so I would suggest contacting Monash student support services and they will advise you whom to approach to get your resume done nicely. In your resume, given your very limited work experience – try to emphasize your skills and abilities. Focus on the skills that are particularly relevant to the job you are applying for. Read job descriptions carefully and keep making small adjustments to your resume accordingly so that it is always tailored to the needs of the company you are applying to. I know it is hard work… but it has to be done!

Okie, I am feeling a little bit better already. Good to know there is still some hope against hope for me. So you mentioned making a resume and applying everywhere I possibly can. But do you think someone will give a chance to an applicant who has no local work experience at all?

Of course, many of the companies will not be willing to ”take a risk” and employ a fresh graduate but some will! Do not take rejections close to your heart and keep-on apply for as many relevant jobs vacancies as you can possibly identify. Eventually your persistence will pay off and you will finally be able to secure some interviews and once you get to the interview stage, there is always a chance!

And Michael, many of my friends suggest I get some local experience by enrolling in an Internship Training Program or Professional Year Program. Do you think it is a good idea?

Your friends are on the right track. By any means, if you can secure an internship – go for it! Once you join a company as an Intern – not only it will be a perfect opportunities to gain skills and experience required but also, if you manage to impress your internship supervisors – there is a high chance they will offer you paid employment on completion of the internship. Just make sure that you select an internship that is right for you. Never mind if you are not getting paid for your efforts as long as there is plenty of free training and opportunities to gain new on-the-job skills involved.

Right, and what about getting good grades? If I study day and night (not that I intend to) and get all HDs in reward for my lovely efforts. Will it help me get a job?

I do not want to discourage you from studying hard but the truth is, while good grades do help in some instances (for example when you are filling in application forms to apply for graduate jobs and you are requested to state the grades) but it is just one of many factors that can provide you with a competitive advantage when applying for jobs and arguably not the greatest advantage of all. While employers do expect fresh graduates that they are about to hire to be diligent scholars, they are much more concerned about your ability to learn, enthusiasm, people’s skills and actual knowledge rather than the grades. For example, if it is evident from your resume that you can produce real-life tax returns, it is far more impressive than having HD grade for a taxation subject.

And what about Baron Consulting jobs? Would you offer someone with limited or no relevant experience a job in your company if you feel that person is enthusiastic and eager to learn would you always prefer someone with proven professional experience? Please, be frank!

Well, since you insist I should answer the question honestly (not that I would be inclined to answer it dishonestly otherwise). We certainly value work experience just like other employers do. Securing a senior job with us without sufficient work experience in similar role is highly unrealistic. However, for junior jobs (internships in particular), we are sometimes happy to consider applicants with limited or no professional experience as long as they are able to demonstrate that they are committed to working hard, quick leaners and happy to work as part of our small and friendly team. Experience is not everything! Everyone has to get started at some point, and we do understand it… and so do many other organisations. However, we do need to believe that the interns are able to contribute to our projects and their ability to learn quickly and to become valuable members of our team… and this is up to them to demonstrate during the interviewing process!

Haha. Or well, thank you for your honesty. Now the very last question – how do you and other recruitment agencies advertise the job vacancies available? I visit SEEK every now and then. I also check-out vacancies available via Monash online Forums and Communities (sadly most of these jobs are hardly professional and related to my field of study). So where else can I find job vacancies to apply for?

Once again, you are on the right track! The lion share of all of the employment opportunities is available via the Seek website. However, University forums and communities may not be so helpful when it comes to entering professional fields of employment though. As far as I know, almost all of the jobs that are posted on University forums are casual jobs. These jobs (e.g. cleaning, babysitting etc.) are good for current students and for recent graduates while they are still job hunting for study-related jobs but have little linkage to professional jobs. One other way of expanding employment opportunities is ”door-nocking”. Chat to your friends to find out if they know ”someone” who may be working with a company that could accommodate recent graduates like you and try to arrange a meeting with them so they can advise you whether there are any openings available in their companies, and if yes, what is the best way to apply for those. Furthermore, you can also try ”cold-calling”. Identify organisations that are known to recruit fresh graduates in your field of employment and contact them via phone or email to request a meeting. This could lead to more potential employment opportunities.

Thank you, Michael.
