Looking For A Job In Modern Times

looking-for-a-job

In these modern times, there are so many ways that recruiters can get prospective employees. However, the concept of a job headhunter is still new and foreign to some people. A job headhunter is a firm or group of people whose major job is to look for employees for another organisation. In essence they are executive recruiters of a kind and can exist in two forms. The retained executives or the contingency job headhunters are the two kinds.

Differences in the two categories

The retained executive recruiters are paid some fee even before the employee is recruited. These recruiters are used to recruit high end employees like company executives, managers and directors. The contingency recruiters only receive their fee when the employee is employed in the organisation.

They can therefore be used even for low paying positions like the entry level positions in any company. On important point to note is that these recruiters usually use your networks to get to you and the jobs they recruit for and rarely advertised.

Do you need a job headhunter?

Well, this will entirely depend on the position you are seeking and the industry in question. Some industries like those involved in biotechnology have used this method a lot in the past. Some industries may be reluctant to use this method and therefore this should be your concern.

If you are looking for a job, it is advisable to diversify on the options that you have. Well, it will not hurt to use a job headhunter but I would suggest not using it as the mutually exclusive method of looking for a job.

For those in low level positions, you will need a lot of diversification since most companies are only willing to spend a considerable amount of money in recruiting high end employees who will add value to their organisations from the beginning of the contract. In addition headhunter jobs usually tend to favour people with experience.

This does not mean that if you have not accumulated the relevant kind of experience, you cannot get jobs through them.

If you’ve having trouble getting the attention of headhunters one of the best things you can do it optimize your LinkedIn Profile.  In Greig Wells book “LinkedIn Insider Secrets” he teaches you exactly how to do this.

You can make sure that your profile comes up in many more LinkedIn search results.  This will cause the headhunters scouring your industry to come across your profile and resume first.  This is one of the surest ways to get the right kind of attention when trying to find a new position.

Contacting job headhunters

Greig Wells Linkedin expert

First, it is possible for you to contact these recruiters on yourself especially if your Curriculum Vitae is not in any public domain like LinkedIn. However, before you contact them, you will need to do a very thorough revision of your CV, cover letter and ensure that you have all your credentials ready.

Your CV should be as detailed as possible including all the publications you have so far. It should also include a thorough outline of what you have to offer for a specific field.

You will also need to identify a specific field where you will work that matches your skills very well. This field should be the area you have specialized with or the area within which you would like to specialize. You will also need to identify a possible geographical location where you would like to work.

This will enable the recruiters to match you with a job in that area if it comes up. You will also need to identify factors that will enhance or limit your mobility if need be. These may be allergies to certain climatic conditions, family ties or any other reason whatsoever.

You should ensure that you provide a valid email address, telephone numbers or any other form of contact that they can use to reach you either during office hours or at home. Even of the firm does not have any job that matches your skills, once your CV is in their database, there will be other chances of being matched with a potential employer.

They may also help you in knowing what companies require so that you will be ready with all the information if a potential employer contacts you.

Other options

As said earlier, job headhunters are not the only option you have for finding a job. LinkedIn, Professional network allows you to interact with fellow colleagues in your industry as well as find jobs. There is a page where all potential employers post the vacancies in their firms and you are free to apply through LinkedIn of you qualify.

The employer may also contact you upon seeing your profile on Linked In and therefore it is important to have a profile that portrays all the skills you have, the level of experience and the kind of positions you are seeking for if you are seeking to change your current job.

Linked In also helps you to learn more about the companies you may wish to work with in future which may be very useful during the recruitment process.

In addition, the professionals in your networks may refer or recommend you to a specific company of they become aware of any job opening. Therefore, you need to create a positive image and rapport with the people in your network.

Besides Linked In, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social networks are very important for people actively seeking for employment. Most employers will post a link on their pages for potential employees to apply the job. Career portals are also an important way to know of all the vacancies in your industry.

Some firms will even use print media like newspapers or Television and Radio advertisements to attract potential employees.

Finding a job is a very tiring affair for some people but the more aggressive you are in seeking these opportunities, the better your chances of landing a good job. There are instances when you may be lucky and you get a job very fast.

At other times, you will need to practice patience and diversify your options for that rewarding opportunity to come through. Keep looking for a job in all the online and offline career portals or pages and you will not regret it.

Examining The Luxury Condominiums

beautiful luxury condominiumMany people want to live a life of luxury. The desire runs deep in most people. Even though most people are more than willing to live a life of quiet mediocrity, they secretly long for something better. While it is true that no one can get everything they want, people who have enough money in their bank account may be able to afford luxury condominiums.

Experts may not agree on what this means, exactly, but it does not matter. There are times when luxury depends on the person buying the product. Sometimes luxury may mean certain amenities such as a stove or a microwave. Many people want tennis courts, pools, and some places even have a well-stocked fishing pond.

When someone first goes to buy a condominium, he wants more than just the building itself. Technically, an individual is only buying a building and not the property, but this is a different issue. He also wants the development to be in an area that is a good neighborhood and close to shopping. There may or may not be a gated community involved. There certainly does not have to be.

Any home buyer will insist on seeing the building before he makes a decision to purchase one. This is simply good policy. The cursory home inspection allows the buyer to spot any problems a person might have with the home. Someone who commits to buying the condominium will have a home inspector go through the property later. The home inspector will spot problems that an individual may not realize.

If someone does not wish to Buy A Luxury Condominium, he does not have to do so. There are many rental properties that fall into this category. If someone just wants to get away for a vacation, all he has to do is find an apartment he can rent that is in the area he wants to visit. This may take some time. Luxury condominiums are not normally advertised in the local newspaper. They are often advertised on specialty sites and in vacation magazines. The traveler needs to find them on his own.

Buying A Car For All The Wrong Reasons

buying-a-car

Not all cars come with full bumper to bumper coverage for insurance and warranties. The good thing is that you can get this added for a price. The main question is what are the costs that you may have to pay? This simply depends on the make, model and year of the vehicle. The older the vehicle the more it will cost you for a warranty however the older the vehicle the less it will cost you for insurance.

I know, it sounds like you cannot win. Well, I always say you can save the most money by walking but who can afford to walk in today’s world. Walking could cost you even more money if you can’t get to work on-time. Yep, this doesn’t always work for most and now we can basically use a calculator to judge what is the most affordable. Public transportation is the cheapest in terms of taking a bus but may not be the safest way to conveniently get around.

Can you notice that there are always ups and downs for most of these instances involving getting from one place to the next? We know this all too well and may never change as long as people are wanting to get to point a to point b without using a straight line no matter what Texas buy here pay here dealer they want to purchase from. Some even want to get to the straight line in an expensive Lamborghini and some just want to get in their Honda Accord.

No matter which one proves to be the best or most exotic. We look and want to have people enjoy their life in the easiest happiest way possible. So spending more at a car dealership to impress yourself or the opposite sex may get you a few cool points but may also costs you a couple points in your bank account.

Let me tell you it has cost me thousands of dollars and I would never wish any hardship on anyone that is only purchasing a debt burden to yet only impress their friends or love ones. The pain and agony is not worth the benefit in the long run. Besides most people know you well, also they know if you’re are just doing something to impress or just doing it for self gratification.

We hope that you will do it from the love from within and stay within the boundaries of your finances so that way you can live happy and peaceful going forward.

 

Usain Bolt – World’s Greatest Athlete

usain-boltThe XXX Olympiad in London, England offered an opportunity for Usain Bolt-World’s Greatest Athelete to state his case in resounding form on the track inside the Olympic Stadium. He showed his prowess on the track and made it clear to other athletes, fans, and journalists that he is the greatest athlete to have ever lived.

Usain Bolt was born August 21, 1986 in Trelawny, Jamaica. He was raised in poverty, but able to flourish due to his athletic ability. He trained his whole life for those golden moments on the track and field. His areas of expertise are the 100m Sprint and 200 meter sprint. He also runs the 4×100 relay and the 4×400 relay.

Bolt can use his 6 medals for his events to bolster his claim that he is the world’s greatest athlete. He also has the record for the fastest 100m and 200m sprints ever. This year he helped his team win the 4×100 relay and broke the record for that race at the same time.

Among both athletes and fans there is good natured debating over whether he is in fact the greatest athlete. While it may be a matter preference for fans, there can be no debating he is certainly the fastest runner to have ever raced in the Olympics.

Usain was asked by journalists if he will be participating at summer games in Rio. He said he would be there, but he did not know if he would be racing. He went on to explain that he has accomplished his goals and he also noted that younger runners are coming up and he was not sure if he would be up to racing. Bolt plans to sit down with his coach and discuss the merits of participating in another Olympics.

Most athletes will wait until they are closer to time trials and other processes before committing to another Olympic games. Training is tiring and time consuming. Some athletes have stated clearly they will not be returning in 2016. They have done what they set out to do and feel they have nothing else to prove to themselves or the world. Some of them have even indicated that there are other things they want to do now.

Usain Bolt has enjoyed many benefits to his fame as the world’s fastest man. He has enjoyed multiple paid endorsements for sports equipment, clothing, and foods to the tune of over $9 million dollars. If he feels strong and ready for all the activity and wants the physical and emotional charge of representing his country he will very likely return once again. He is still a young man now at 26, but in 4 years he will be pushing 30. Who knows how he will feel in four years?

The world will have to wait and see what he and his coaches decide is best for both him and his country. Jamaica is a good, strong competitive nation with a giant heart. Its heart will roar with or without Usain Bolt.
