    The first thing that you had to do is to identify exactly what you enjoy, what you probably need to do is do some research on your dream job

    According to Alan Watts, a respected philosopher, the best way to find what you should be doing with your life was to ask yourself this important question: "What would you do if money were no object?" What if you won the lottery and you could do whatever you wanted to do with your life? Sure, you'd want to relax for a while, but eventually you're going to get bored. So what would you do to make yourself really, truly happy?

    To avoid scams, plan several clear objectives and time scales. Be certain that you are moving forward every day to get closer to your goal. A big wall calendar will help you to out your through goals and achievements. This may take some time, but if you are willing to focus on the path you wanted to take, slowly but surely you will get there.

    Please note that while all great jobs out there are up for grabs, you have to do a reality check and make sure you are not delusional when pursuing your dream. There will be physical and other limitations that are out of your control. There could of course be very valid obstacles such as family situation or your finances; as a rule, however, there is always a solution that c...

  • Getting that job takes work

    Community, Communication Design


    With the school year winding down, many high school students are looking for employment. Whether it’s our first job or our tenth, applying for a job always seems a bit challenging. First, we have to find a job we believe we can be reasonably happy with. If you’re unhappy indoors, try to find an outdoor job … then fill out the job application, and then have the job interview.

    Interviews make some folks nervous. We have to maintain a balance of selling ourselves to our employer and yet not coming across as conceited. A nice middle ground is to be confident. If we are truthful about what we put on a job application, and know that we can do the skills that we’ve listed, our confidence is appropriate.

    There is a link on the website to Hire Net Hawaii. On that site you fill out your zip code and a radius in miles of places you’d be willing to work.

Many of these do require specific ...

    Half of the companies said they were already planning to use their expertise by investing abroad

    Companies in the UK oil and gas sector expect to create up to 39,000 jobs over the next two years.

    A clear majority (69%) of executives in the companies were optimistic about their growth prospects in 2014/2015.

    A feature added to LinkedIn may harm users’ job prospects by alerting their current employers when they are revamping their online résumé, or by broadcasting that they’ve landed a new job when, in fact, they are out of work.

    In an effort to increase interactivity and social recognition, LinkedIn automatically notifies users’ entire networks when they change their job title or profile unless they adjust their settings. Further, LinkedIn makes the assumption the person has snagged a promotion or new job, says as much and prompts people to congratulate the achievement. “It’s basically like a suggestion engine to encourage you to reach out to your contacts,” says independent LinkedIn consultant Dan Sherman, adding that birthdays and work anniversaries are similarly broadcast to newsfeeds.

    But congratulations are not always in order. That’s when things get awkward – or worse.

    Simply by rewording their profile, users may unwittingly trigger an auto-generated newsfeed update with a “say congrats” button. So folks receive congratulatory notes when they have not made a career move, or when they update their profile because they are out of work, Sherman says.

    Donna Sapolin received a barrage of congratulatory notes after she left an editing job and updated her LinkedIn profile to convey more clearly what she can offer prospective employers. “...

    If you read most articles about the world of job seeking, hiring and employment these days, it all sounds so easy. Countless online-business publications snare readers with headlines like “5 things you shouldn’t eat before a job interview” or “How to tell if applicants are lying about their last job” (or even the headline to this article). These litanies of tips and tricks play right into the notion that effort isn’t really required. That somehow just by studying the game, you can avoid the traps and master the tricks. That you can find the job or employee of your dreams and do it with little true investment.

    Most job searchers believe that a few key adjustments to a one-page resume, submitted to the best job board and optimized to catch eyes is all it takes. Hit send and hope for the best. Employers too buy into the promise of shortcuts and immediate results. As if it’s quick and simple to find the next man up when someone goes down. As if the employment landscape is a plug-and-play world of new faces claimed on an as-needed basis.

    It’s maddening, short-sighted and ironically, it could be a cause of the job crisis in this country. While there are some 10.2 million unemployed in the US, there are also some 4 million open jobs in our country. What we have is a lack of thoughtful pursuit of both quality employees and desirable career opportunities. Because in the torrent of tips and tricks, job seekers rarely get substantive advice on how to connect, engage and...

  • Unless you have been living under a rock for the past 3 years, you’ll know that job hunting is tough. In fact, in general the world of employment is rocky and is something that has affected people massively over the past couple of years. With people being made redundant, companies cutting back on new intake and less opportunities being made available, people are stuck. This has resulted in massive numbers of people applying for vacancies when they do become available – which means that the recruitment process is tougher than ever! Does this mean you need to be stuck in a job you hate or living a life on benefits? Not at all. It means you need to be inventive, organized and well informed on the ways of recruitment, to give yourself the best possible chance of being given any job that you apply for.

    Keep At It

    It can be disheartening when you’re looking for a job and nothing seems to come up of. The first thing to remember is that climbing a career ladder is tough and you’ll be up against some stiff competition. Companies can only see a limited number of people during their recruitment process so are often very picky when it comes to who gets to the interview stage. You need to bear this in mind and don’t give up when it seems like you’re just not getting anywhere at all.

    Instead make sure that you look in different places for job adverts and keep applying for any that peak your interest. Don’t put all of your eggs in one basket and apply for one job at a time –...

    Avoid scams by following these tips.

    Use common sense. Assess! Consider the logic of an opportunity from the other side. Think about this, if they are paying you so much for so little work, how would the promoters of the opportunity make money? Moreover if a company’s marketing tactic is mainly based on coming out legitimate, that is probably because it is tendering a work at home scam…or at the very least a poor money-making opportunity. So remember this, any job that promotes itself in search engine ads as a “legitimate work at home job” almost certainly not legit.

    Do your homework. Sending money to any organization without thoroughly checking it out is most certainly wrong! Always remember that legitimate companies do not charge job applicants and that business opportunities are never risk-free

    Know how to spot the work at home scam. One very complicated trick is a scam technique that sets up a whole website dedicated to revealing work at home scams and then funnel people to the few “legitimate” work at home jobs which those are not legitimate of course.

    Know the typical work at home scams. Scammers are always developing new schemes, and work-at-home scammers are no different. Below are some that you must avoid. Direct Sales or multilevel marketing (MLM) Pyramid Schemes - Always avoid! Business start-up kits Anything involving cashing checks/wiring money – Always avoid! Home assembly/envelope stuffing – Always avoid! Becoming a product re-seller or wholesal...
