Out of Work But Staying a Strong Candidate

Many people are currently out of work due to downsizing, job closings and business reconstructions. Despite this, there are many job positions still available in the job market. In competitive times such as this, it is extremely important for the job seeker to remain a strong candidate in the eyes of prospective employers. One must continuously make the very best efforts to seek new positions and market his or her talents. The following are tips on how a person can stay a strong candidate while out of work:

Seek Employment Daily

In order to stay on the employment radar, a job seeker must put continuous efforts into seeking employment. A passive job seeker will not stay fresh in employers’ minds because there are hundreds of thousands of people filling out applications every day. Job seekers must be proactive and complete employment applications online and in person at every place possible.

Apply More Than Once

Many large businesses have a short-term application life period. A job seeker’s application can become inactive in 30-60 days. A great way for a person to remain a strong candidate is to reapply after the application period expires. This not only shows persistence, but it also keeps that person’s name fresh in the employer’s database.

Join Career Websites

Career websites often have access to positions that are not available elsewhere. Additionally, many of these sites offer networking services. One employer may not have interest in a candidate, but it may still forward that applicant’s information to another employer. A good practice for an active job seeker is to join as many career websites as possible.

Visit Local Unemployment Office

The local unemployment office offers a wide variety of services including use of computers and job connection tools. Job counselors are also available to help people make smart employment decisions. Anyone who is out of work can take advantage of these services. The goal of the unemployment office is to return workers to the job market.

Stop doubting yourself, work hard and make it happen.

New Year, New Career

There’s nothing better than the beginning of a new year to start fresh. Something about that blank slate of a new calendar opens up possibilities as we dream about what the next twelve months might bring.

One of the questions you may wrestle with is whether or not to take the leap into a new career. Maybe you’ve been bored for a long time now, having learned all you can or care to learn at your current job. Maybe you’re facing a layoff as you watch your once-thriving industry dwindle down to nothing. Or, maybe you’ve been taking stock and getting honest with yourself and realize that if you don’t start going for the career of your dreams, you’ll never forgive yourself.

It can be both scary and exciting to consider what else you might be doing with your days. What better time to take those steps toward a new career than now? There will always be obstacles in the way — from the opinions of our families, spouses, and friends, to financial commitments like mortgages and car notes, to our own fear of the unknown and disbelief in our abilities. It helps to remember that the perfect time will never come. It does not exist. Something will always be in the way. At no point will you find yourself with no competing possibilities, nagging doubts, or financial hurdles. A new year is as good an excuse as any to make needed changes in your life.

Making a big life change is pretty scary. But know what’s even scarier? Regret.

But where to start? The idea of changing careers can seem overwhelming. It helps to break the process down into smaller steps. If you know what your ideal new career would be, take some time to do research. Start at square one. Will you need to go back to school? Could you find a part-time position in your new field that would give you some valuable experience? Are there skills you hope to use in your new venture that you can offer to others now on a freelance basis? Writing down some answers to these questions will help anchor your mind and give you some forward momentum.

If you don’t know what your new career might be, the new year is just as magical for sparking the imagination. Next year at this time, where would you like to be? Is there something you wanted to become as a child that still interests you now? Do you have a hobby, such as selling antiques, that you might be able to spin off into a full-time business? What kind of things do you enjoy doing for others? Is there anything they might pay you for? No matter how far-fetched or unrealistic your ideas might seem, they can help point you in a new, more fulfilling direction.

The only perfect time to start your new career is now. The beauty of a new year lets us set course with a clearer outlook and renewed intentions. If you’ve been looking for a sign, consider that this is it!

Pros and Cons of Open Office

Downloading Open Office to your computer can save you at least a hundred dollars on purchasing Microsoft Office. It could save you much more than that, depending on the specific programs and features you need for your computer and whether you are a business, personal, school or non-profit user. However, Open Office, the free office suite software offered by Sun Microsystems is not the best choice of office software for all users. Depending on your needs, Microsoft Office may be the better choice.

Open Office is free of charge to all users. Developers constantly update and tweak the functionalities of Open Office’s programs, and it gets better with each version. Open Office’s programs are similar in feature and function to many Microsoft Office programs. They include Writer for text documents, Calc for spreadsheets, impress for slide show presentations, draw for creating drawings, Math for a calculator and formulas and Base for databases.

One pro of Open Office is that it is compatible with Windows, Mac, Linux, Solaris and Free BSD. This makes it easy to download and use for almost any operating system. Another plus of Open Office is that you can download it at one time. You don’t have to download individual programs. Open Office documents can also be saved as files that Microsoft Office programs can read. This enables you to send or receive a file created in Open Office without worrying over whether it can be read. You can also easily export the file as a PDF without having to install extra conversion software. If you want to build a web page using a presentation or a drawing, you only need to click File>Export.

Today, the PC is often still considered just a tool, but together we need to make it a lot more than that. We need to make it a path to experiences.

Drawbacks to Open Office are many, however, for many users. For example, it does not offer all of the same functionalities as Microsoft Office. This can be particularly irritating for business users who need the advanced statistical and analytical features of Microsoft Office. Another downside to Open Office is that it takes a significant amount of memory and CPU time to operate. It is thus much slower than Microsoft Office. However, each new release of Open Office seems to take less time to perform the same functions as Microsoft Office. Open Office also does not offer nearly as many fonts in all of its programs as Microsoft Office. Support for Open Office is also limited compared to Microsoft Office. Since it is a free suite of software, the only support is available from other users and developers. Getting and finding the help you need when you need it can be a bit difficult.

Home computer users will likely find that Open Office will meet their needs nicely. They can avoid having to pay for Microsoft Office licenses. Learning to use Open Office may take some time if they are used to working with Microsoft Office. Business users will likely want to stick with using Microsoft Office for its advanced features and support offerings. The reasons you use office software will ultimately dictate which office program suite you use.

3 Out Of 5 Companies Want Employees to Speak Fluent English

The majority of employers want their employees to speak English on the job. That makes sense for a variety of reasons. Employees who cannot communicate with each other are going to find it difficult to work together. Having one language on the job makes it easier for everyone to understand each other. What are some other possible reasons for wanting employees to speak English?

Majority of Americans Speak English

English is officially not the official language of the United States. However, most people in the United States do consider English to be their first language. Using English as the preferred language in the workplace makes sense because of this fact.

Employers Only Expect English To Be Spoken on The Job

Employees who are not fluent in English should not be too alarmed. Employers can only dictate the language you speak while on the job. This means that just a basic understanding of the English language is required. Taking some night classes after work should teach you enough English to get by on the job. It is only fair that foreign workers learn English as many more Americans are learning to communicate in other languages for business purposes.

English Is the Language of Business

The English language is the default language for business purposes around the world. Almost every student around the world learns a basic command of the English language. Learning how to speak English could very well help an employee no matter where they are employed. Many companies are going to do business with an American company at some point. Learning English just makes it easier to do business.

The art of communication is the language of leadership.

Employers Can Monitor Employee Communication

You don’t want any illegal activity going on while employees are on the clock. The easiest way to slip something past your employer is to use a language that your employer does not understand. Not allowing employees to use a language other than English could add another layer of security for a business that pays employees to be ethical.

Communication is vital in the business world. Having all employees speaking the same language is important to good communication. There are many valid reasons why your employer may demand that English be spoken at all times while on the clock. Understanding everyone around you helps get the job done smoothly and safely at all times.
