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.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL....

I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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
