If you’re already blogging, you know that operating a blog is a great way to share your perspectives, inspire discussion, and connect with like-minded individuals. But did you know that blogging can also get you a nice job? It happened to a job seeker below: A true experience elaborated from a job seeker “As an experiment, I started to include an invitation to my website anytime I sent out a job application. I’d expected to generate a bit of traffic by doing this, and to show more of my personality than I could communicate in a brief cover letter, but I did not anticipate the overwhelming, positive response I got from prospective employers who took the time to check out my blog. They would send emails complimenting my writing style and leave thoughtful comments on my posts. This led to real, personal conversations about mutually important issues that laid common ground when it came time for my interview. And I was told more than once that I was being offered the job because my blog and the discussions it generated gave the hiring committee confidence in both my skills and my character. Although I’ve since given up my personal blog to make time for the writing I do on behalf of Wild Apricot, I wouldn’t be engaged in the nonprofit work I am passionate about if it weren’t for my early blogging activity.” Benefits of blogging Networking The aim of any blog, no matter how big or small, is to create conversation. Your website is a venue to introduce ideas and perspectives that matter to you, as well as a venue for others to discover these ideas and respond to them. Online conversations function much like those that happen offline—conversations create connections, and connections create community. Blogging, however, takes place in a much larger and interconnected environment than most face-to-face discussions. It provides opportunities to network with the figures and organizations at the forefront of the issues that are most important to you, regardless of whether they are in the same city as you or on the opposite side of the country. A good way to gain exposure with companies or foundations that interest you is to follow their blogs and leave thoughtful comments on their posts. Portfolio The best personal blogs are, essentially, professional portfolios. If your talent is writing well-researched, thought-provoking articles, show off your skills. If you’re a genius behind a camera lens, include your best shots. Perhaps you’re an involved volunteer contributing to a local nonprofit’s success? Share your stories. Make sure your blog compliments and supplements your resume. Personal brand Your blog is more than a home for your great ideas. It is a billboard, of sorts, one that advertises who you are and what you believe in. And a blog is more than a catalog of words and images. It is a place to share your personal aesthetics, both visual and intellectual. Getting Started Choose a platform WordPress, or Blogger, or none of the above? Choosing a host for your blog can feel like a headache, but this doesn’t have to be true. The solution is simple. Check out a few different platforms, create an account, and play around with the tools they provide. Pick the one that provides the most intuitive user experience. This will vary from one person to the next in the same way that some folks prefer PCs, whereas some prefer Macs. If you’re posting great content, the site doesn’t matter. That said, I have always used WordPress for its ease of use and free templates. Pick your passion If you’re in the market for […]

Cosplaying is a lot of work, whether you choose to make, commission, or buy your cosplay. You need to spend a lot of time researching and putting together your cosplay. Once you have it finished, you still need to add the details, such as hair and makeup. Having a few poses in mind and knowing how to get into character would also be a good idea. Despite all of this work, cosplaying is fun, and the effort is worth it. Before you become a cosplay part-timer, you should know the thing as following. Planning Your Cosplay Decide who you want to cosplay. Choose a character you can relate to or that you are similar to. Keep in mind that you don’t have to cosplay as your race, body type, or gender; anyone can cosplay. On a similar note, your cosplay does not have to be from anime or anything of Japanese origin. You can cosplay a character from a movie, television show, or even a western animation (ie: Dota2 hero). Get reference pictures. Don’t just get any reference pictures, however; get the ones of the specific version of the character you are dressing up as. Many characters have multiple outfits. Some characters’ costumes change slightly from film to film. For example, Iron Man’s body suit changes a little in each Iron Man and Avengers film. Batman spots a different design with each film as well. Determine how much money and effort you are willing to put into your cosplay.You don’t need to spend a lot of money in order to have a great-looking cosplay. If you want your cosplay to look great for cheap, however, be prepared to spend lots of time on it. Some cosplays will also require more than just sewing, such as casting parts in resin or making foam armor. Design your own cosplay if you want to be more original. You can always go with a screen-accurate version of the character you are cosplaying. Alternatively, you can put a unique spin on it, such as a historically-accurate version of a Disney princess, or a steampunk version of a character. You can even do a crossover between two costumes, such as a Sailor Scout version of a Pokemon. Plan ahead and give yourself time to finish your cosplay. Even if you are buying your cosplay, you still need to account the time it takes to create it (if you are commissioning someone to make it) and the time it takes to ship it out. If you are making the cosplay, you might want to give yourself extra time to fix any mistakes.   Making or Buying Your Cosplay Make a list of everything you need. This includes every piece of the entire outfit, down to the belt, gloves, and shoes. It should also include things like wigs (if you are using one), makeup, and any necessary undergarments. If you are going to make the cosplay, write down the materials you’ll need for each piece. Use patterns when sewing your cosplay. You can buy pattern from the fabric store or draft your on. If you decide to use store-bought patterns, be prepared to modify them to suit the character and your figure. Many patterns also include a list of recommended fabric types. Take these into consideration! Don’t be afraid or ashamed to buy pieces for your cosplay. You don’t have to make everything from scratch. If your cosplay requires an everyday item, it would be easier to just make it.For example if you are cosplaying Kagome from Inuyasha, it would be much cheaper, easier, and faster to buy a pair of knee socks rather than make them yourself. Consider buying […]

  Research from the Parttimestreet examined the search demand of job seekers across a wide variety of occupations, revealing that 75% of people are searching for jobs outside of their current occupation, 25% of people are searching in their current occupation, and that the higher the share of job postings in an occupation, the more attractive it is to job seekers. One trend that stood out from those patterns was that “part-time” is a top search term in 15 of the 20 standard occupational categories we studied. Despite a downward trend from its 2017 peak, approximately 5 million Malaysians are working part-time for economic reasons, meaning that their full-time position has been reduced to part-time or they are unable to find full-time employment — a figure that is roughly 60% greater than the prerecession level. The increasingly significant role of part-time employment in the labor market recovery prompted us to get a better sense of how people are searching for these jobs. Key Factors Part-time interest is much stronger for women, particularly early and later in a career Workers are much more keen on part-time employment in lower cost living IT and Technology job seeker are highly interested in part-time employment Part-time Jobs Garner More Interest From Women Interest in part-time jobs from women is elevated around the ages of 18 to 35, and it recedes gradually for several years before picking up again and ultimately peaking at the tail-end of a career. Throughout their careers, women’s interest in part-time jobs is greater than men’s. Moreover, the gap between the percentage of clicks on part-time jobs from men and women steadily widens as workers age. This can be attributed to the share of clicks on part-time jobs by women increasing at a faster rate.

Modeling for males is not same to that of female modeling. More client will prefer to have topless and sexy male models showing off toned abs. If you decide to start a modeling job and even if you are more mature, you will find that a tight toned mid section is your best bet when joining an agency. For photographic modeling you will need to have strong features and will have to prove that you are photogenic and can act for the camera. For ramp work, you will also be trained, but you should be over 6 foot tall to succeed in this arena. There is a large popularity for mature male models and even if you are graying a bit you can easily become a model. Before finding that perfect male modeling agency for you, you must make sure you are in good shape and have a unique, appealing look. Most male models are chosen for their sex appeal and good looks on camera, but a good stage presence is also required for doing any kind of fashion catwalk shows, where you will be taught about how to walk, how to hold yourself, posing and more. Being a male model does not mean that you have no complications when it comes to nudity and being taken advantage of by photographers. Male models are also entitled to refuse topless or nude shots and must be just as careful as the women about getting caught in a compromising position where you can be exploited. Men can usually start modeling at the age of 16 or 17 and it will all depend on their build and structure at that time. If they look older than they are or have strong looking bodies, then it helps when they apply at an agency. This is not to say that younger guys cannot join, but if you are in the younger age bracket you will get modeling jobs that reflect that age for clothing stores and other photographic ads. You will rarely be given ramp work at a young age unless it is for a teenager clothing brand or designer. Male models are also frequently needed for range showing and you will go through the same process as the women do. Your day will run from normal hour and you will get paid overtime if you need to stay a bit later. You will need to change into various outfits that the buyers want to view and they will want to feel the fabrics, look at the cut and fit as well as all the trimmings and finishes. This can become a tedious job if you let it, but having the right attitude and a bit of patience will see you earning a nice sum of money. If you are at an age where you can show both teen and adult clothes, then you can earn even more money by working extra hours. If you decide that male modeling is the industry for you, there are plenty of opportunities for males to get involved. The first thing you should do is find a good agent or employer who will get you a lot of jobs and build your modeling portfolio.

Oh my god! I forgot to show my smile during the interview! It’s so easy to feel like you just ruined the interview and your mind can’t stop thinking about every single thing that you did. The moment when you walked out from the interview room, you regret everything and hope that you can get a second chance. Hey, don’t think about it too much and life must go on! If you think you just ruined your interview, read these tips and take a good action. Step 1: Keep it easy Yeah, the interview didn’t go as well as you wished. You screwed it up, and your mind started refreshing every single detail about the interview from the firm handshake, your eye contact, the way you sat, everything. It’s perfectly normal to think about it after an incident happened but don’t take it too seriously. The deeper you think, you demand more for the answer and you’ll start to hate yourself. Dwelling on the past is so unacceptable! Accept it, embrace it and hey, your little mistakes can make you memorable. The interviewer surely will remember you as “the candidate who clumsily dropped the file.” 2. Step 2: Try to move to the second phase! Let’s move to the second phase! Set your plan action on how to control the damage. Okay, you know your answer was wrong and you decided to elaborate more and drag the answer just to divert the interviewer’s attention but did you know that it’ll simply draw more attention to your mistake? So think carefully before you take any action. To get the clear view on what kind of action you should take, spend some time to ask yourself these questions: (A) What did I do wrong? Will the mistake make a significant impact on the interviewer’s perception of you? Perhaps you had answered why you’re fit for the position by telling about your past experience but you forgot to mention a detail which you think is very important. Will it affect the interviewer’s decision to hire you? Think about it. (B) Perhaps you can change the result if you add (specific info) To set what kind of action should to be taken, you have to know if the action will able to recover your situation or not. If you can change the final result by adding more information to clear things up, then do so! If your explanation is lengthy and time consumig and you have to be dramatic about it, it might be better not to do it. But if your explanation sounds like an apology, just skip it for good. So make sure you evaluate these two questions before taking any concrete action. 3. Step 3: Try to fix it! So the easiest and safest way to approach an interview blunder is by giving a thank you note. Keep it short and don’t explain too much about your mistake. Straight to the point and be professional. As a professional candidate, you should try to fix it and never leave it hanging. If you value the position and really want it, then you should try to recover it. 4. Step 4: Take it as a lesson Let bygones be bygones. You made a mistake but do you know that you can take it as a life lesson to strive for a better interview? Of course, you’ll evaluate the mistake and learn from it. So by now, you know what to improve and be better right? List down points you can improve and what you shouldn’t do. Perhaps one of the factors why you messed […]

Starting a job can give you a rollercoaster emotions. Sometimes you feel happy and excited about it and sometimes you feel so nervous and timid and it’s like you didn’t do great in your job. Have you ever feel like you have zero idea what you’re doing right now? You don’t know either your boss is happy with your performance and the main problem is you don’t know either you’re doing okay or bad. Cut the panic and here are six key signs you’re doing good in your job and you’re still an awesome employee even if your boss doesn’t say that often: 1. Feedback all day Are you kidding? Shouldn’t you be receiving more praise and less feedback as an indication that you’re doing well? Try to think this way, if you’re performing very well then your boss must be really eager to give you feedback as in constructive criticism, not negative criticism so that you will become better. Your boss wants you to do great in your job, hence your boss will keep challenging you. Don’t assume that getting feedback means you’re in a rough boat, okay? 2. The master for any questions You’re the first person that your colleagues run into whenever they have any enquiries. This is not somewhat a torture for you, they actually trust you. You’ve established yourself as an expert resource and your colleagues are comfortable approaching you for assistance. You have to accept it that you’re a capable employee who seems to have a strong handle on all difficult situation. 3. “I need to get your opinion” This is one of the ways to measure how good yourself is around people. If they keep asking for your opinion regarding something, then you’re a powerful person and your opinion matter. During meeting and discussion with your boss, he keeps asking for your opinion, well that’s an indicator that you’re making a positive impression. If your boss invites you for a meeting that is not related to you, then you should know that your boss believes in you and need your opinion. 4. “Don’t leave me, I need you!” Your boss seems so stress out whenever you’re not around. He makes that cute little cat eyes whenever you ask for a leave due to something important. Wow, you must be someone so important to him. If your boss trust you and asks you to handle a lot of thing that you know not everyone can do it, then you’re doing good in your job. You’re the first one your boss turns to whenever he/she needs something taken care of. It’s a good sign that your manager views you as an important asset to the company. 5. You represent your company for any event You’re sent to a talk or any event on behalf of your employer. You’re asked to head to a meeting with external partners. This is a big opportunity for you and take it as a challenge. Regardless of any situation, the message that your boss wishes to convey remains the same which is “you’re doing an awesome job and I’m comfortable working with you and select you to be an ambassador for the company.” Take that and keep it in your mind. Good job!

  Hiring manager roughly spends a few seconds to go through your resume and decide “I want this candidate to come for the interview.” They rarely have the time or resources to look at each resume closely and make up their mind. So if you want to pass this stage, you need to have some solid qualifications and the perfect resume is the absolute way to get it. Below are 13 things you should discard from your resume right now: 1. An objective It’s already obvious you want the job. If not, you won’t send your resume, isn’t it? But if you’re in a unique situation such as changing industries completely, perhaps it may be useful to include a brief summary. 2. Irrelevant work experiences Discard any irrelevant work experiences from your resume. You might have been working as a babysitter in high school year, but the position that you applied for is not somewhat related to the teaching profession. Indeed, past work experience might not appear to be directly relevant to the job but it might show another dimension, depth, ability, or even skill that may be relevant or applicable. But remember to only include experience if it really showcase additional skills and may help in getting the job. 3. Don’t be too personal Keep your resume as professional as you could. Don’t include your marital status, religious preference and any other personal info. This info is a must in the past, but not now anymore. It could lead to discrimination which is illegal, so don’t include it. In fact, your house address also should be kept confidential. To be honest, it’s a security concern. 4. Only one phone number, not more than that Please include only one phone number on your resume, and that number should be your recent and active cell phone number. The number that you use to answer any incoming phone calls and also messages. 56. Your hobbies In many cases, nobody even cares about your interest. But still, some company would like to know about their employees. So if you think your hobby is relevant to the job, then just insert it. If you can’t see any benefit of putting it on your resume, then why would you waste a space and their time to read that, isn’t it? 6. Lies, lies, and more lies Don’t try to tell lies in your resume. Do you know that they can trace and validate your facts? Telling lies already showcase your bad personality and attitude. If you don’t have those skills then discard them from your resume. Know that managers are more forgiving that job seekers may think. So if you lie, then just admit it and ask for forgiveness. 7. Keep it short and nice A resume is a brief information about yourself. It’s not an essay competition who can write the longest essay. Keep it only one page or maximum 2 pages. Include only these information which are your work experience, skills, and educational background. If they wish to know more, you can brief about it during the interview session. Hiring manager only looking for important keys and they just glance through it. 8. Inconsistent formatting The format of your resume is just as important as its content. If you’re using bullet format then make sure you use it throughout your resume. Don’t mix it up by using bullet, numbering etc. Once you pick a format, stick with it. 9. Mind your grammar Never describe past work experience using the present tense. Be careful with pronouns that you use, “I,” “me,” “she,” or “my,” […]

Research the information until you find it. It shows that you do take initiative and that you’re serious about the job. 2. Tailor your cover letter Don’t be basic guys.

You receive a phone call regarding the job application. It means that your resume left enough of an impression to make the reader liked you. Yes, they really liked you and they’re trying to offer you a job. Hold on, there’s one more step before getting the job which is a phone call. It’s the second step after submitting your resume in the interview process. Don’t be scared, they just want to figure out if you fit the role. The following are useful phone interview tips that you can use to improve your performance the next time a potential employer comes calling or even useful for job seekers who are expecting a call. 1. Find a quiet space Avoid answering a phone interview in a train station, while you’re walking in a crowded place or outside in general. Find a quiet and peaceful place and take about 15 minutes before your interview to be comfortable and ready. Perhaps you want to take a glass of water, adjust your sitting and whatever that may help you comfortable. 2. Speak clearly, not rambling The worst thing you can do during a phone interview is not knowing when you should listen. Alert for any verbal cues and when an interviewer asks you questions, don’t beat around the bush. Answer it straightforward. This is the exact time for the interviewer to get an opportunity to get to know you and to quickly align your skills to the job posting. Phone interview only requires a short and brief answer, not long-winded answers because the person on the other line is going to furiously pen down notes. Save both time and save your breath. 3. “Can I have my lunch early at your company?” This is your chance to ask any of the questions you might not be comfortable to ask during an in-person interview. Please don’t ask any nonsense questions like can I have my lunch early? I would like to take a week off right after I start working. They definitely will judge you. 4. Show more effort! Always make sure that you always know how to end the conversation properly. Don’t just say see you or bye. You need to sum up back all the points and perhaps remind them back if they need any further questions, they can call you using that number or via email. Don’t waste the opportunity, by asking the interviewer how’s the phone interview, it shows that you’re legitimately interested in the opportunity. Good luck!

If you were a hiring manager, which one would you favour most? The candidate’s qualification or personality? Would you value their education level and their CGPA, or solely on their attractive personality? Here’s the truth, while most organisations are on the lookout for employees with good qualifications, you can’t deny that great personalities win the hearts of employers. Yes, that’s true, employers will pick personality over qualification. Personality beats qualification! There’s a recent survey done by Jobstreet that showed 51% employers chose ‘great personality’ as the main criterion of a good employee and only 14% of them chose qualifications. Hence, the reason why they still want to interview you face-to-face even though you’ve passed all the requirements. Hiring a new staff is an investment and surely they don’t want to waste such money on hiring the wrong person with a bad personality. So what if you’re graduated from a top university with CGPA 4.0 if your attitude is like a 6-year-old boy? Many employers are starting to place higher value on employees with pleasing personalities. Skills and qualifications can be attained over time through training and work experience but not attitude and personality. Employees with the right attitude are hard to come by. 6 personality traits employers look for when hiring 1. Confidence This is the trait that employers think most applicants are missing. You have such a strong resume in your hand but you’re afraid to make eye contact with the interviewer? Know that the first impression is extremely vital and they will quickly lose interest if you cannot look them properly in the eye. Believe in yourself! 2.
