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.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
