Once Bitten, Twice Shy, Third Time Stupid

Once Bitten, Twice Shy, Third Time Stupid

Once Bitten, Twice Shy, Third Time Stupid

Over the years in recruitment, I have seen many job applicants make the same mistake again and again. This is a fatal mistake that I feel need to be addressed. These are the list of things that you should not do in the event of applying for jobs.

Do not spam the HR executives
A lot of desperate job seekers had been committing this same mistake. If you visit the yahoo groups, you will realize that some of the members are so helpful that they list out all the email addresses of the HR executives and headhunting/recruitment firms. It is really scary as the list comes in hundreds and thousands. Not surprisingly, my email was included in it as we're in the headhunting business as well.

Guess what happens when the hr executives receive your email. Count yourself really lucky if they don't list your email in the spam folder. What have you achieved? Nothing, but you have probably pissed people off. If you are one of those that enjoy broadcasting your resume, you would probably ban yourself from applying for jobs. Most of the established companies have got spam filters installed and even if your email doesn't get picked up by spam filters, your resume is likely banned from their database. Word get around fast and all HR executives normal share a common pull of blacklist resumes.

Do not submit your resume to job portals where anybody can assess
I always receive calls from a lot of jobseekers asking me why they are not able to find job opportunities with large MNCs. It's not as if they do not qualify as some of them do have pretty good credentials. As all these queries piled up, I decided to do some cross reference with some of my clients to find out what was the main problem. Guess what was the reply?

Oh...they have been banned. Why have they been banned, I asked? Well by submitting their resumes to job portals that all employers have full access to (e.g Monster.com), you have just flooded the market with their resumes. You might think it might be a good thing but this should be done only on a last resort. Why is it so? Basically all the recruitment firms accessing that has access to the portal will pick your resume up as well. Imagine 30 or 40 recruitment firms submitting your resume to companies like Microsoft and Accenture. What happens? Your name gets strike off even if you apply directly to the company later.

Do Not Submit Your Resume More Than Once
By submitting your resume more than once you're really getting on people's nerves. A lot of people do not know that. What do you think I do when I receive the same resume 3 or 4 times a day? I delete his email and go to the spam filter and block his email address. That's what most HR executives do as well. Remember, your job is to send a neat & professional resume to make sure that the HR executives can do their job easily. You help them by helping yourself.

Always Indicate The Job Title/Code
Imagine a large MNC who has got 50 different openings. Out comes a resume that does not indicate any intention. What do you think the HR executive will do? Your resume will probably end up in the deleted mail folder. Do you think the HR executive has time to call all the candidates? They might do so if your resume is really well written. Imagine 50 X 100 resumes. The likely chance is that your resume will end up being deleted.

Now you understand the meaning of Once Bitten, Twice Shy, Third Time Stupid. There are so many people who continue to make these glaring mistakes day after day and that is going to impact on their career if they are choosing to join a large and reputable firm. More importantly, you need a good solid resume that bring you far in your career.

To sum it up, these are the things that you shouldn't do to avoid losing the opportunity of joining an MNC.

1 - Do not Spam the HR executives if there are no genuine opportunities advertised.
2 - Do not submit your resume to job portals where anybody can assess.
3 - Do not submit your resume more than once.
4 - Always indicate the job code.

Follow these steps and you stand a better chance of securing a good job.

by

Joseph

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a very common form of arthritis. Affecting nearly 27 million Americans, the disease wreaks havok on the joints. Patients often complain of pain, stiffness and swelling which is caused by degenerative loss of cartilage that acts as a cushion between the joints.

Medical scientists are currently seeking patients for research studies that shall explore better treatment options for OA. 

As a CureClick Ambassador I want to share this information with my readers because it could be helpful for medically treating people who have OA. Patients do not require health insurance or referrals to participate in these studies. But space is limited, so please visit the research sponsor's website to see if you qualify.

Condition

Osteoarthritis

Age Range

At least 18 years of age

 

For those of you whom are not familiar with clinical trials, here's some information that you can use:

What Are Clinical Trials?


Clinical trials are research studies to determine whether investigational drugs or treatments are safe and effective for humans.

All investigational devices and medicines must undergo several clinical trials, often times these clinical trials require thousands of people.

Why participate in a clinical trial?

People whom are eligible will have access to new investigational treatments that would be available to the general public only upon approval.

People whom are eligible for clinical trials will also receive study-related medical care and attention from clinical staff at research facilities.

Clinical trials offer hope for many people and gives researchers a chance to find better treatment for others in the future.

 

Disclaimer: I am not participating in this clinical trial. I am providing this information to my readers as a CureClick Ambasssador. Click on the links below to learn about my relationship with Cureclick and why I'm talking about clinical trials.

Preventing the Misconduct of Your Children or Employees

Preventing the Misconduct of Your Children or Employees

Preventing the Misconduct of Your Children or Employees

By: Etienne A. Gibbs

Human behavior, whether that of a child or a grown employee, always stems from a goal or purpose. Starting as a thought, the behavior is further enforced by triggers of the emotions and senses. This behavior, when it is "good", gets us rewards and recognition, while on the other hand, negative, or "bad", behavior creates a strain on a relationship, sometimes fatally.

If you were to look at it closely, the misconduct of some employees closely resembles that of a child's misbehavior while he is seeking his mother's attention and not receiving it. Remember the antics of a young child in the supermarket who had a "Terrible Two's" tantrum because his mother won't but him the candy or toy he wanted? Well, it is my opinion that the goal behind the employee's purposeful misconduct is to seek attention, in one way or another.

"Every behavior, good or bad, has a goal behind it."

Looking at the goals that triggers misconduct, let's begin by looking at the primary misconduct, that of attention-seeking. Behavioral studies show that the desire for attention is universal in all people, regardless of age, color, language, culture, etc. People tend to seek attention in positive and useful ways; but if they can't get it that way, they will seek attention in negative and useless ways.

Turning the Negative into a Positive To become effective in helping negative attention-seekers, we must first change our response to them by showing them that they can be accepted as a useful and contribution member of the family or organization. We do this effectively when we show them that they achieve significance through their positive and useful contributions rather than through they useless bids for attention or service. In order to focus on their constructive behavior, we must either ignore their misbehavior or pay attention to it in ways they don't expect. Caution: Attention should never be given on demand, even for positive acts, because doing so reinforces their inappropriate desire for attention.

* Instead of reinforcing their negative and untrue belief that they don't belong unless they are the center of attention, help them develop positive feelings about themselves, their abilities, and their contributions.

Who's Your Daddy?

Next set of misbehaviors are those of the power-seekers who feel that they are significant only when they are bossing (bullying?) people around. They tend to do what they want, when they want, and how they want despite the rules, regulations, or policies. Even when their parents or supervisors succeed in subduing them, the victory is only temporary. The argument may be won, but the relationship is lost - maybe permanently. On the other hand, sometimes the defying child or employee may seem to be complying, but they are doing so in their own way, in their own time, and at their own speed, all contrary to the rules, regulations, or policies. This artificial obedience is known as "defiant compliance". If this struggle for power continues and the power-seeker comes to feel that they cannot defeat their parents or supervisor, they may trade-in their desire for power for their next misconduct weaponry, that of subtle revenge.

* When dealing with power-seekers, refrain from getting angry, from "blowing your top", and disengage from the power struggle by refusing to hold a no-win conversation. After arranging an appointment to meet with them when they calm down, turn your back and walk away. (After all, it does take two to tango, doesn't it?)

When Getting Mad Is Getting Even or Stopping the Madness

The revenge-seekers are somewhat paranoid in their thinking, in convincing themselves that the world is out to get them, in believing that they have no significance unless they are hurting others, and in finding their belonging by being cruel in their relationships. Unfortunately, they trigger a downwards spiraling chain of events. Their revengeful acts, when discovered, deeply hurt their parents or supervisors, causing them to want to retaliate. The revenge-seekers then respond to the counterattacks by seeking further revenge, either by intensifying their misbehavior or by selecting another item from their weaponry inventory.

* To be of help to the revenge-seekers, train yourself to avoid retaliation, at all cost. As difficult as it may seem, train yourself to improve your relationship with the revenge-seeker by remaining calm and showing them goodwill. Be prepared to the unexpected: If the war of revenge continues despite your attempts to defuse it, the revenge-seeker may come to feel completely defeated and may give all attempts to become a contributing member. They may even turn their feelings inwards by displaying manipulation as their next weapon of choice.

To Suck Up or Seek Out? That Is the Question.

Manipulators, because they tend to feel inadequate to interact appropriately in a relationship, may display feigned inadequacies or disabilities. Rather than come right out with their wishes, wants, and desires, they will find elaborate ways to get others to do something for them. They become con men and women. To them they are finding the "easy and sure way" to get what their want by lying, cheating, overcommitting, supercharming, and "gently" aggressive.

* To help the manipulator convert this misconduct, train yourself to eliminate criticism, and focus, instead, on their assets, strengths, and abilities. Look for ways to help them, as I like to call it, "maximize their potential".

Turning Misconduct Into Super Performance

Remember that all misbehavior and misconduct, even appropriate bids for attention, stems from discouragement. Discouraged people lack the courage to behave in an active, productive, and constructive manner. Their misbehavior does not become evident unless the manipulator perceives a real or imagined loss of status. Whatever goal or purpose the manipulation serves, it is done in the belief that only in this way can they have a place in the family or organization.

Conclusion: In your relationship with your child or employees, remember that their behavior and intentions towards you will change only when you change your approach. Although you do not cause them to misbehave, you can reinforce and encourage their misbehavior by reacting in ways they expect. Therefore, concentrate your efforts on changing your behavior if you want them to change theirs.

Dry Winter Skin: How to Deal with it

Dry Winter Skin: How to Deal with it

Dry Winter Skin: How to Deal with it

Your skin in winter can become very dry - even to the point of being painful. I myself began feeling the effects of the cooler weather in early October. It usually doesn't hit me this hard but this year I'm having a real difficult time with it. My lips became tender and chapped, and I had to switch to a different formula of daily facial cleanser because the exfoliating beads in my current cleanser were irritating my skin. My face became red and flushed. I'll have to limit my daily exfoliation to just twice a week. Also my hands and feet became very dry.

Ah, winter. It can be so peaceful yet so unforgiving. Indoors you're subjected to dry heat and outdoors you're bombarded with harsh winter UV rays from the sun and chilling winds. Yes, the sun's rays are still just as dangerous as they are in the summer and they will reflect off any snowy surfaces, bouncing the rays right back on to you. You're going to need a good facial moisturizer with SPF in it.

Here are some more tips to help you combat dry winter skin:
1)Use a lip balm (preferably with SPF) and do not lick your lips under any circumstances. That just makes it worse.
2)Keep your hands moisturized with a good quality hand cream. Make sure you have a tube of hand cream with you at all times.
3)Drink plenty of water and limit your alcohol intake. Alcohol is a dehydrator.
4)Buy a humidifier if you don't already have one. It may help keep your heating bills down as well. You know, the whole heat and humidity thing. Think Amazon rainforest.
5)Use a shower filter. It will filter out the skin-drying chlorine in your tap water. Avoid using hot water in the shower even though it feels so good on a cold winter morning. It will only strip your skin of its natural oils and cause water to evaporate more quickly. Use warm water onyl. Also, it pays to switch from soap which can dry the skin, to a silky body wash which will help your skin retain moisture. Pat your skin dry when exiting the shower, don't rub. Apply a nice moisturizer while your skin is still damp to help seal in moisture.

When the humidity drops to 50 percent or less, you will need to pay even more attention to your moisturization routine. Stay away from harsh scrubs or cleansers since they will eliminate most of the skin's oils and dry your skin out more easily. This applies to skin care products as well as cleaning products.

My favorite winter skin care tip is before you go to bed, apply a thick, rich moisturizer to your feet, concentrating on the heel area. Then put on a nice cushy pair of socks. When you wake up your feet will be soft and smooth and well-hydrated.

Not paying attention to extremely dry skin can lead to health issues and act as a welcome mat for rashes and skin infections. So take good care of your skin and enjoy your winter!

Aging and Our Joints

Aging and Our Joints

Submitted by: Glenn Antoine

Have you ever experienced the early morning stiffness in the ankles or knees that makes getting up and walking not so much fun? What about going up stairs and the knees just don’t really feel quite up to the task? Have you reached for something that is above your head or just a little higher so that you have to reach more than the norm and the shoulder just didn’t want to?

If you use to enjoy walking, but your joints just didn’t want to cooperate take heart. There is a new product on the market that is getting all kinds of praise and that product is RegeniCare. Touted as the “Ultimate Joint Care Formula” RegeniCare backs up that claim with state of the art science, enough testimonials to fill a book and double blind placebo controlled human clinical trials where they beat out the leading COX2 inhibitors that were available at the time. Interested?

Now you have a choice and the best choice is RegeniCare. There are a lot of joint care products on the market, many of which contain glucosamine, chondroitin, and numerous other elements that have been found to help with the maintenance and repair of your joints. The real difference here is the quality of the nutrients provided, the quantity of those nutrients and in what combinations, how those nutrients are delivered and how fast will they work once in your body. Basically if research has proven that you need 1500 milligrams of glucosamine you better make sure that you are getting 1500 milligrams and be able to absorb the glucosamine provided. What good do you think it would do if I provided you with a tablet with 1500 milligrams of glucosamine, but the tablet was packed so tight that it was through your digestive system before your body could break it down? Right – none at all. In this scenario you might as well be taking your money and burning it because you are getting no benefit from the products you are taking.

All of these issues and more have been addressed in the design and production of RegeniCare. First and most obvious is that RegeniCare is provided in packets that are typically mixed in water. My preference is to mix my RegeniCare in a coffee cup full of lukewarm water as it seems to mix better for me and it tastes great. Univera LifeSciences has again made use of their full scale genomics to search thousands of plants extracts for the right combination of plant extracts to reduce the inflammation typically associated with joint pain. What they found is that your body can have all of the right nutrients, but if they can not get to the problem area due to inflammation the repair process never gets started. As such they added their patented ingredient Protectin™ to address this issue thereby letting the other nutrients do the job they were meant to do. And, RegeniCare was proven to provide faster and more complete results than other natural products on the market.

Another important aspect of RegeniCare is that it provides all of the required nutrients for complete repair and regeneration of the connective tissues in your body: Glucosamine sulfate, MSM, Chondroitin sulfate, CMO, Protectin™, Vitamin C, and Maxcell™

While we have addressed the Protectin™ contained in RegeniCare many of you may be asking your self about Maxcell™. Maxcell™ is a patented product of Univera LifeSciences that improves the bioavailability of the nutrients contained in RegeniCare. In short Maxcell™ helps to get the nutrients into the blood stream, so they can go to work in the body, more specifically helping you rebuild the connective tissues of your joints.

While both Glucosamine and Chondroitin are naturally occurring in our bodies we begin to produce less and less of these vital nutrients as we begin to age. These nutrients are known as proteoglycans and help to strengthen and hydrate the tendons in our bodies. As we begin to age we have less and less in our system therefore the connective tissues in our bodies begin to dehydrate. Needless to say has these connective tissues begin to dehydrate movement becomes more painful, we are more susceptible to injury and we don’t heal as quickly as we might have at one time. With new research proving daily that exercise is one of the keys to a life filled with vital energy, quicker recovery times from surgery or illness wouldn’t it make sense to do whatever you can to keep moving.

MSM is another critically important nutrient found in healthy joint tissue and as luck would have it most people are not getting this important sulfur compound from their diets. Again, in our battle against Mother Nature, MSM begins to decrease as we age. As such it was important that RegeniCare provide the proper amount of MSM as part of this joint care product.

CMO was proven to improve range of motion in knees during a 2002 Clinical study that was published in the Journal of Rheumatology, just to mention one study. Even with it being known as an aide to the improvement of joint range of motion, this is not a nutrient you will find in a lot of other joint care products.

While research has proven that exercise will help stimulate the body to produce new collagen and higher levels of the repair and rebuild proteoglycans we are still battling the age factor and RegeniCare is now available to help us win that battle. If you are planning to stay active and enjoy life, verses watching it go by, RegeniCare is a must have in your quest for healthy living. For most of us a single packet daily would be sufficient to help maintain our connective tissues at an optimal level of repair and rebuild. If you are suffering from some kind of an injury, have had a long battle with some connective tissue, or just aren’t seeing the results you expected there is nothing wrong with taking a packet of RegeniCare first thing in the morning and then again at night before bed. If possible it is best to take it on an empty stomach so that the RegeniCare is not competing with other nutrients for absorption, but the import part is to just get it into your system. Additionally for some nagging problems I have known a number of people that were taking the product for 6 to 8 weeks before noticing a significant difference. At the other end of the scale there are those that have experienced relief in a matter of hours, but the important thing to remember is that each of our bodies is unique and as such our results will vary. The one thing that you can, and should, count on is that this is the product to get you the relief that you have been looking for. Weather it is your knees, your back, your neck, your shoulder or any other area of your body that requires the functioning of connective tissue, RegeniCare can help. This is one product that I would put in the category of food and water. Basically I plan to stay active well into my aging years and RegeniCare will help me to ensure that I do so.

If you are Personal Trainer, Yoga Instructor, Massage Therapist, Physical or Occupational Therapist or a Chiropractor working with clients on range of motion and/or the rehabilitation of any joints you would be doing to your clients a huge disservice if you don’t take the time to check this product out. And if you don’t like the results the product is backed by a 100% Satisfaction Money Back Guarantee.

Scalp Massage to Improve Hair Loss and Stimulate new Growth

Scalp Massage to Improve Hair Loss and Stimulate new Growth

Scalp Massage to Improve Hair Loss and Stimulate new Growth

Scalp massage for hair loss has been used throughout history by many different cultures. Massaging the scalp should be part of every hair loss regime. One of the most obvious benefits of scalp massage is increased circulation. The scalp, being an extremity is one of the hardest places for blood to flow. The increased blood flow helps to nourish the follicle. The scalp depends on blood flow to bring oxygen and nutrients to the hair follicles.

Tension causes tightness in the scalp, which restricts blood flow. Scalp massage restores pliability and relieves tension, helping to create an ideal environment for new hair growth.

Massaging the scalp also helps loosen and remove dead cells and excess sebum on the scalp, which can hinder new hair growth. Scalp massage helps to distribute the hairs natural oils to protect and condition the hair.

The benefits of scalp massage go beyond hair loss prevention. Seventy percent of our nervous system is in the head. A scalp massage activates neural pathways to the brain and stimulates unused brain cells. Besides that, scalp massage feels good! It is nurturing and relaxing to the whole body.

Scalp massage should include the face and neck. You can perform it yourself or have someone do it for you. Slide your fingertips under your hair and onto your scalp. Use the balls of your fingertips. Use gentle circular motions to stimulate your entire scalp.

Below are several variations of scalp massage to try.

HAIR PULLING MASSAGE
Glide fingers under scalp. Grab hair close to scalp. Pull gently. Relax grip then pull again. Do this 3 times and then move on. Repeat over entire scalp. This is stimulating to the scalp and it feels wonderful, especially if you have someone else do it for you!

INDONESIAN SCALP MASSAGE
Stand with your feet apart. Breathe slow and deep in and out. Gently lean forward from the waist, curving your spine until your head is just below your waist. Keep legs straight. Gently tap your scalp all over with your knuckles for 30 seconds. Slowly raise your body and repeat in an upright position.

ORIENTAL SCALP TAPPING MASSAGE
Place fingers at the center of the skull base and begin to tap about 30 times. Work your way outwards towards the ears and continue tapping. Then go back to the center of the skull, a little higher up and repeat process in this manner until entire scalp is tapped.

TAPPING WITH BRUSH
Tapping your scalp gently with a boar bristle brush is an easy way to provide energy and circulation to the scalp.

AROMATHERAPY MASSAGE
Adding essential oils or nourishing herbal infused oils can increase the effectiveness of scalp massage. Dab a small amount of the prepared formula onto fingertips. Place fingertips under hair, directly onto scalp and massage in circular motion. Continue until scalp has been massaged, paying extra attention to thinning areas.

Vision Directed Interviews: How to Succeed within Interviews

Vision Directed Interviews: How to Succeed within Interviews

Vision Directed Interviews: How to Succeed within Interviews

You've probably read numerous job interview tips which list the ways to respond to the difficult interview questions: Tell me about Yourself; What are your work-related weaknesses?; Why are you leaving your current employer? These are the usual dreaded questions that we all expect to hear from interviewers. Typically interviewees are advised to create well-prepared and rehearsed scripts to respond to these dreaded questions. And so, during the course of the interview, interviewees sit on the edge of their seats waiting to respond, trying to remember the correct answers. And consequently, the interview becomes a race, a highly tense setting designed to stay one step ahead of the other with scripted conversation and pre-planned positioning and second-guessing. The possibility of authentically assessing the merits of the position and being able to evaluate how you might fit within the company's culture and mission is minimized in this scenario.

Optimally, the interviewer and the interviewee should operate within the same mental space. To effectively hire someone who fits within the organizational game plan, as well as the specific position, the interviewer needs to ensure that the questions will provide opportunities for detailed, authentic discourse. At a minimum, the interviewer is looking for information regarding situations/projects/tasks/assignments in which you've handled, the specific steps undertaken to achieve results, and the direct results accomplished.

As an interviewee, you have to be able to deliver this information....no matter the question. Additionally, as an interviewee, the only way you'll be able to respond with full confidence (without referring to a script) is by ensuring that you've done your homework. To confidently manage the interview, it's important to know where you're heading - - to know your vision. Everything else should flow directly from your career or personal vision. Every tactic you undertake to find the new job, the new career opportunity, or the promotion should emanate from your established vision. In this manner, you will be able to hit the answers to those dreaded questions without feeling nervous because the interview is not the most important tactic - - it's one step within a strategy. It's your well-crafted vision that's essential, not a well-prepared and rehearsed script based on someone else's words. Authentic interviews happen when you're able to effectively convey your vision, your passion, your success stories.

Medical Scientists Seeking New Treatments For Rheumatoid Arthritis

by

Joseph

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease that occurs when the immune system attacks the lining of your joints. Sadly, 1.5 million Americans have this is an uncommon form of arthritis and it tends to affect women three times more likely than men.

The disease can cause pain, swelling, redness and stiffness that can afflict any joint in your body without warning. In addition to these physical discomforts, people who suffer from RA may experience tiredness and fever. That's why better treatment options are needed for people who suffer with Rheumatoid Arthritis.

But there is hope. At this very moment Acurian Health is working with local doctors are looking for people who have Rheumatoid Arthritis to participate in local research studies.

As a CureClick Ambassador I want to share this information with my readers because it could be helpful for medically treating people who have the RA.

If you or a relative suffers from arthritis, this study could be helpful to you. If you're not sure what type of arthritis you may have, read the table of symptoms that is provided on the research study sponsor's website.

Please hurry, because space is limited.

For those of you whom are not familiar with clinical trials, here's some information that you can use:

What Are Clinical Trials?


Clinical trials are research studies to determine whether investigational drugs or treatments are safe and effective for humans.

All investigational devices and medicines must undergo several clinical trials, often times these clinical trials require thousands of people.

Why participate in a clinical trial?

People whom are eligible will have access to new investigational treatments that would be available to the general public only upon approval.

People whom are eligible for clinical trials will also receive study-related medical care and attention from clinical staff at research facilities.

Clinical trials offer hope for many people and gives researchers a chance to find better treatment for others in the future.

 

Disclaimer: I am not participating in this clinical trial. I am providing this information to my readers as a CureClick Ambasssador. Click on the links below to learn about my relationship with Cureclick and why I'm talking about clinical trials.
