Don't Let Employers Forget About You



Have you been struggling in the job market lately? You’re not alone. A lot of people find it very difficult to obtain a job in the field that they were hoping for. Instead, they are forced to settle for something a little further afield. Usually, this is simply because they just miss the cut of what the employer is looking for. If you’re worried about this happening to you, you must make sure you find a way to make yourself stand out more. Don’t forget that on average an employer will spend sixty seconds looking at your resume. That might not seem like enough time to impress, but if you take the right steps, it can be.
Push A USP
Your first step must be to make sure that you have something that makes you completely different from the competition. There are a few options here. For instance, you could learn a second language. Being bilingual would certainly make you a more attractive hire. Particularly, when the whole world is now something of a melting pot. It’s very unlikely that all of your customers will have the same culture or even speak the same language. Don’t forget most businesses are also globalised, so you will probably be interacting with clients from further afield.
It might also be a unique piece of experience separating you from anyone else. For instance, you might have worked for Disney. Believe it or not, an employer might ring you up for the interview, just so they can find out what it was like. The point here is that anything that feels or seems different might be worth considering.
Blog ‘Til You Drop
You may also want to think about setting up a blog. A blog can be used for a whole range of purposes. You can show employers another side of yourself. Or, you might just use it as an extended resume. Rather than handing in the typical two sheet, give them a whole site to explore your past experiences. If you make it interesting and attractive, you certainly maintain their attention and ensure that they do consider you for the job.
If you want to take things one step further, you need to make sure your blog feels and looks different. One of the ways to do this would be by adding fresh images and content onto it. You can obtain royalty free images online and make sure that your blog looks absolutely terrific. You may also which to consider getting some guest posts to spice it up a little and to boost your network.
Dress To Impress
Finally, when you do attend the interview, you should make sure that you are already well presented and dressed like a successful business woman or man. This will show that while you may not need the job, the employer would be crazy not to hire you. Essentially you need to come across as a winner and as someone who can take the company to the next level on the market.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
