If you want an easy
job, consider this advice
CareerJournal.com LAS VEGAS, NV --
What is the world's easiest job? The answer will depend on the individual. What
seems "easy" to one person may be excruciating for another. If you're looking
for effortless employment, here are some things to keep in mind when making a
If you hate your job, it will be hard. The key to finding a job
that seems easy is to identify activities you enjoy. When you do what you
like to do, it becomes fun; it becomes easy.
Strike a balance between ease and effort. A job that isn't
challenging usually won't feel easy, because being bored all day isn't
Put yourself in a comfortable environment. Your work environment
plays a large role in whether a job seems easy.
Also, the people you work with can have a
big impact on how much you like your job. If you like to be around people,
take a job where you'll get to interact often. If you prefer solitude, take
a job where you have time alone. Beware of get-rich-quick schemes. Still
thinking about that infomercial you saw on TV that promised easy money? If
an offer sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
improving during next 6 months
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- According to
the survey of 100 executive recruiters, 77% are confident that the executive
employment market will improve during the next six months -- up from 74%
last month and nearing an all time high of 80% reached in March 2006.
For executives thinking about exploring new career options - this is
definitely a great time to take action. In addition to a considerable
increase in the number of opportunities available, executive compensation
packages continue to expand as companies look to increase their
competitiveness in a new war for talent.
In an effort to keep up with the rapid pace of growth in the executive
employment market, search firms continue to expand to better meet the needs
of clients. In September, the majority of executive recruiting firms (60%)
reported plans to hire additional professional staff in the next three
months, which is considerably higher than the number of firms that added
staff during the past three months (43%).
Resume flaws to
Jobhunter.com SAN FRANCISCO, CA --
Are you sabotaging your job search? Nothing slows a busy reader faster than
sections of text that go on and on. Try to limit all paragraphs in a resume
to three or four lines at most this will make it easier to read. Resumes
with five or more different fonts and sizes, look like they have been pasted
together. To avoid distracting readers, limit yourself to two fonts in your
resume -- three at most.
If you need miniscule letters to fit the text of your resume onto one or two
pages, you're hurting your chances. A font smaller than 11 points will cause
readers to do one of three things: squint, look for a magnifying glass, or
pitch the offending resume.
A jam-packed resume will look unprofessional. Try to leave a margin of at
least 0.5" along the top and bottom, and 0.9" on the sides. A two-page
resume is perfectly acceptable, so feel free to use more than one page if
you just can't cut the content. Follow these guidelines to avoid the design
flaws that prevent employers from giving your resume serious consideration.
When in doubt, run your resume by at least three friends for their honest
barriers and move on...
WOODLAND HILLS, CA -- The first
step in moving in a positive direction is to identify your barriers and your
roadblocks. Come to terms with these barriers and make the decision to move
on. Keep in mind that there are the career barriers that are imposed on us,
and there ones we impose on ourselves. The ones we impose on ourselves are
the ones we have to take total control over.
The state of the national economy or the condition of your industry are
things you have absolutely no control over. So instead of dwelling on them,
realize that there is nothing you can do about it. Barriers you do have
control over include: living in the past, over-identification with a job
title and undermining your skills and motivation.
You should have "barriers" checkpoints during your job search. At some
point, many job seekers realize that some things they are doing are not
working. When you see this in your job search, stop, take one step back,
re-evaluate your process, identify the glitches, fix them, and move on.
Job Seekers: Protect
your social security number
PrivacyRights.org LOS ANGELES, CA
-- Some legitimate online job application sites and employment kiosks may
sometimes ask for your Social Security number (SSN) and date of birth prior
to posting a resume or applying for a job. (For example,
www.sportsauthority.com, www.albertsons.com, usajobs.opm.gov,
studentjobs.gov, and many state job sites request this information.) Some of
these sites conduct instant SSN matching or background checks on your
information to verify it.
It is the position of the World Privacy Forum that you as a job seeker
should never have to submit your SSN or date of birth prior to applying for
a job, especially online where verification of where the SSN is going is
more challenging. Broad dissemination of your SSN can lead to identity
theft. It is appropriate for you to allow a serious employer to use your SSN
and date of birth to conduct a background check after you have engaged in
the interview process.
Not all sites that request your SSN and date of birth are legitimate. As a
general rule, you should not supply this information up front, especially in
combination with your credit card information.
