Novate IT's Top 5 Ted Talks


Natalie Wild

This week we're sharing 5 of our favourite (work related) Ted Talks to help you feel motivated or maybe pick up a new perspective. 

  • How to Make Applying for Jobs Less Painful   
    Around 75 percent of people who applied to jobs in the past year said they never heard anything back from the employer. Finding a job used to start with submitting your CV to a million listings and never hearing back from most of them. But more and more companies are using tech-forward methods to identify candidates. If AI is the future of hiring, what does that mean for you? Technologist Priyanka Jain gives a look at this new hiring landscape.

  • Why the Best Hire Might Not Have the Perfect CV 
    Given the choice between a job candidate with a perfect resume and one who has fought through difficulty, human resources executive Regina Hartley always gives the "Scrapper" a chance. As someone who grew up with adversity, Hartley knows that those who flourish in the darkest of spaces are empowered with the grit to persist in an ever-changing workplace. "Choose the underestimated contender, whose secret weapons are passion and purpose," she says. "Hire the Scrapper."

  • How to Find Work You Love  
    Scott Dinsmore quit a job that made him miserable, and spent the next four years wondering how to find work that was joyful and meaningful. He shares what he learned in this deceptively simple talk about finding out what matters to you — and then getting started doing it.

  • How to Make Work-Life Balance Work 
    “If you don’t design your life, someone else will design it for you, and you may just not like their idea of balance” Work-life balance, says Nigel Marsh, is too important to be left in the hands of your employer. Marsh lays out an ideal day balanced between family time, personal time and productivity -- and offers some stirring encouragement to make it happen.

  • The Career Advice You Probably Didn't Get 
    Coleman, an expert in finding solutions to close the leadership gender gap, offers illuminating insights for job seekers of all levels, with advice that’s aimed primarily toward women but useful for men as well.
