    How to Write a Great Resume

    Last updated 6 months ago

    Your resume and cover letter are invaluable marketing tools in your job search, but studies show that the average employer only spends about seven seconds looking at each one. With such a short window of opportunity, it’s important to present yourself as professional while standing out from other applicants. This brief video provides a few simple tips for building an attractive resume.

    The language of your resume plays a major impact on your first impression. Accomplishment statements should clearly outline your accomplishments and achievements with previous employers. The cover letter should be customized to the specific company, not a standardized letter.

    Tips for a Successful Job Interview

    Last updated 7 months ago

    A job interview is the first stepping stone to a successful and fulfilling career, but it can be an intimidating prospect if you haven’t had one in a long time. Different employers look for different qualities in their applicants, but it is important to be aware of some common interview pitfalls. Make your job search easier with these interview tips from the New York Career Institute:

    Do Your Research
    Even if you’re only looking for a temporary job until a better opportunity comes up, it’s professional courtesy to do some research about who you want to work for and why. An interview is your chance to provide some backstory beyond the resume and cover letter, so make sure all of your information is accurate. Maintain positive body language, relax, and respond positively to the interviewer’s questions.

    Practice Different Types of Interviews
    If possible, try to find out who will be performing the interview beforehand to tailor your interview questions and answers. Certain positions don’t have traditional one-on-one interviews. Some employers may interview each applicant with a panel of decision-makers, while others may do the opposite and interview a group of applicants at once. First impressions are everything at job fairs, so always dress and present yourself professionally and keep your questions and answers concise.

    Be Sincere
    Trying too hard to anticipate what your interviewer is looking for can make it easier to get tripped on your own answers—you might even sound insincere on simpler questions about your qualifications and background. Be honest about what you want from the job and what your expectations are for workload and career advancement.

    Here at the New York Career Institute, we don’t simply teach our students valuable job skills, we also provide them with the resources to put them to use and build a lifelong career.

    Closed captioning is an invaluable service for virtually all TV broadcast stations, especially sports networks. This video provides a behind-the-scenes look at how the closed captioning process works at ESPN.

    Professional typists connect remotely to the station’s program compliance team and send a real-time feed of speech-to-text translation, and the team then embeds the feed into the broadcasting signal. Captioning is not only necessary for live broadcasts, but also for pay-per-view events and video on demand.

    What Careers Await You With a CART Certificate?

    Last updated 7 months ago

    A Communication Access real-time Translation (CART) certificate allows you to translate speech into text in real-time quickly and accurately. Several professional, educational, and municipal sectors have need of professional translators, and because of the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act, there will continue to be a need for such professionals. You can learn more about the potential of a CART certificate from NYCI below.

    Court reporting
    Court reporting is one of the largest areas of employment for CART specialists and professional typists, though many court reporters also freelance their services on an as-needed basis for other legal services. Stenographers are typically responsible for transcribing court proceedings, and data recording and entry is essential in several aspects of court administration.

    Closed captioning
    Since 2006, the Federal Communications Commission has required that all new TV programs provide captioned for the deaf and hard-of-hearing. This means that skilled stenographers are in high demand for virtually all types of live and recorded programs such as news broadcasts, sports, and entertainment programs.

    CART specializations
    CART services are not limited to television broadcasting; the Americans with Disabilities Act requires private employers and public groups to provide services to deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals. CART specialists may work in a wide range of fields, including educational lectures, religious services, weddings, business meetings, healthcare institutions, and much more.

    Data entry
    Students with professional training in a CART specialization undergo extensive training to become professional typists. Many professional typists are proficient enough to accurately enter data at a rate of over 200 words per minute, as opposed to an average of 100 words per minute for a fast typist.

    As one of the only institutions in the tri-state area to offer degree programs in CART and court reporting, the New York Career Institute can help you pursue a successful career as a professional typist and translator.
