Resume Research

20-30 CV's make their way to my inbox everyday.Here are few of my humble observations and recommendations .

Never send a job application appealing for help. "Please help me to find a job" will make you sound hopeless and helpless.

Employers want  executors, innovators and problems solvers.

Show your employer that you want to work for him and you will do whatever it takes to prove you will be worth his time and money.

Your employer needs your help as much as you need that job.

Show your potential employer that you can communicate and take the time to write a proper introduction, preferably made by yourself and not copy and past from the net.

Even if it will take you a week to write, take your time and do it, it will improve the chances of your employer reading your application.

Remember, your potential employer is at least as busy as you are! Avoid shortening words and using abbreviations such as "plz check ur mail" as if were are trying to save costs SMS texting.

Read proof your message before sending it and avoid spelling mistakes

"I am interesting to work for you" instead of I am interested to work for you". I have had someone tell me once " I am a hardly working man" instead of " I am a hard working man".

Well, the truth is, no one wants to hire a hardly working man or interesting man.

Never forget to reply a mail without Signature.I am not your friend to accept a single liner message such as ,check my profile,waiting for your reply,update me plz,plz call,Machine crashed etc etc

Do mention the current role ,responsibilities in a proper way instead of making a paragraph.

Write their names in caps and small letters "aKAsh" instead of Akash,like wise ReGrds,ThAnKS etc.That will sure qualify you to go back to 3rd grade school, but not getting a paid job.

You can mention his/her name as Hi/Dear xyz instead of Dear "Hiring Manager".

Please send me the job description to review it .No please !

If requested provide the feasible time for a call,or else wait until you get a call asking for the feasible time for a discussion.

Its not according to the discussion,according to the call etc etc.You can mention "as per discussion".

Have a decent photo on your LinkedIn profile, I look at some of the photos and ask " Is this someone I want to hire?"first impression counts.

Don't make excuses that you are not photogenic,I've seen people keep photos of smiling monkeys on their desktops.

Show your employers that you are an exceptional employee.

Before applying for the job get to know his business and tell him what you can do to improve his business. Please go through the company profile/website.

Make information readily available for him on your resume,instead of referring him to look and search for you.

Please don't ping in whats app or send a message asking for the update.When i get an update my next job is to let you know.I am paid for it!

Ask for his/her email address if you don't have it and get his/her permission to send him/her your CV.

Do not send a cv without subject and content.

And the best part "plz call me when free".  Remeber you are a direct reject.

I am sure there are many more that our valuable members can contribute to me everyday, i just thought i'll conclude for now

Generation


Our generation will be known for nothing.
Never will anybody say,
We were the peak of mankind.
That is wrong, the truth is
Our generation was a failure.
Thinking that
We actually succeeded
Is a waste. And we know
Living only for money and power
Is the way to go.
Being loving, respectful, and kind
Is a dumb thing to do.
Forgetting about that time,
Will not be easy, but we will try.
Changing our world for the better
Is something we never did.
Giving up
Was how we handled our problems.
Working hard
Was a joke.
We knew that
People thought we couldn't come back
That might be true,
Unless we turn things around

(And now read this bottom to top)

Dreams.....

1. You Forget 90% of Your Dreams
Within 5 minutes of waking half of your dream is forgotten. Within 10, 90% is gone.
2. Blind People also Dream
People who became blind after birth can see images in their dreams. People who are born blind do not see any images, but have dreams equally vivid involving their other senses of sound, smell, touch and emotion.
3. Everybody Dreams
Every human being dreams (except in cases of extreme psychological disorder). If you think you are not dreaming – you just forget your dreams.
4. In Our Dreams We Only See Faces That We already Know
Our mind is not inventing faces – in our dreams we see real faces of real people that we have seen during our life but may not know or remember. We have all seen hundreds of thousands of faces throughout our lives, so we have an endless supply of characters for our brain to utilize during our dreams.
5. Not Everybody Dreams in Color
A full 12% of sighted people dream exclusively in black and white. The remaining number dream in full color. Studies from 1915 through to the 1950s maintained that the majority of dreams were in black and white, but these results began to change in the 1960s. Today only 4.4% of the dreams of under-25 year-olds are in black and white. Recent research has suggested that those changing results may be linked to the switch from black-and-white film and TV to color media.
6. Dreams are Symbolic
If you dream about some particular subject it is not often that the dream is about that. Dreams speak in a deeply symbolic language. Whatever symbol your dream picks on it is most unlikely to be a symbol for itself.
7. Emotions
The most common emotion experienced in dreams is anxiety. Negative emotions are more common than positive ones.
8. You can have four to seven dreams in one night.
On average you can dream anywhere from one or two hours every night.
9. Animals Dream Too
Studies have been done on many different animals, and they all show the same brain waves during dreaming sleep as humans. Watch a dog sleeping sometime. The paws move like they are running and they make yipping sounds as if they are chasing something in a dream.
10. Body Paralysis
Rapid eye movement (REM) sleep is a normal stage of sleep characterized by rapid movements of the eyes. REM sleep in adult humans typically occupies 20-25% of total sleep, about 90-120 minutes of a night’s sleep.
During REM sleep the body is paralyzed by a mechanism in the brain in order to prevent the movements which occur in the dream from causing the physical body to move. However, it is possible for this mechanism to be triggered before, during, or after normal sleep while the brain awakens.
11. Dream Incorporation
Our mind interprets the external stimuli that our senses are bombarded with when we are asleep and make them a part of our dreams. This means that sometimes in our dreams we hear a sound from reality and incorporate it in a way. For example you may be dreaming that you are in a concert while your brother is playing a guitar during your sleep.
12. Men and Women Dream Differently
Men tend to dream more about other men. Around 70% of the characters in a man’s dream are other men. On the other hand, a woman’s dream contains almost an equal number of men and women. Aside from that, men generally have more aggressive emotions in their dreams than the female lot.
13. Precognitive Dreams
Results of several surveys across large population sets indicate that between 18% and 38% of people have experienced at least one precognitive dream and 70% have experienced déjà vu. The percentage of persons that believe precognitive dreaming is possible is even higher – ranging from 63% to 98%.
*Precognition, also called future sight, refers to perception that involves the acquisition of future information that cannot be deduced from presently available and normally acquired sense-based information.
14. If you are snoring, then you cannot be dreaming.
This fact is repeated all over the Internet, but I’m a bit suspicious whether it’s really true as I haven’t found any scientific evidence to support it.
