Given the current state of the job market, being able to stand out with your job applications for teaching positions is more important than ever; this means being able to make the most of your skills and your past experience, while getting the basics right when it comes to putting together your forms. Look at what an employer expects from you, as well as whether or not you have to produce anything extra for an application, and make sure that you specify why you’d be right for a particular school.
Getting the Basics Right
Common mistakes that can damage any job application include not taking the time to check over your application before sending it out – basic spelling and grammar mistakes can make the difference between your application being looked at in more detail, or being discarded – this applies to your CV, application form, and your cover letter. In this context, it’s always worth getting someone to double check your application before you send it.
Also, make sure that you read through a job description as carefully as possible to see what they specifically want from you – if an employer only wants a 4 page CV, don’t send them 6, for example. Moreover, ensure that you address every point listed on a job specification page, even if they don’t always apply to your situation. Keep things concise, and focus on understanding what an employer is aiming for.
Every store that steps into online is looked upon with interest by the prospective buyer and looked upon as a prospective competitor by other online stores dealing with similar products and services. Jabong is no exception and its products and offers do create a sense of awe amidst shoppers and other online stores. Being a junior, it is indeed an achievement that it was able to rouse the interest of all concerned and let us see if it is going to live up to its initial promise to pose threat to Snapdeal, one of its many seniors.
Jabong made its way into the online world in the year 2012. It immediately became the talk of the town with a stunning product range of over 50000. The products include apparels, home appliances, kitchen appliances, jewellery and accessories. In its first year online, the site recorded highest traffic amongst Indian online stores.
Snapdeal entered online in the year 2010. The online store has an exhaustive collection of products, which include apparels, mobiles, computers, cameras, books, sports items, footwear, jewellery, home appliances, kitchen appliances and a lot more.
Funding an education in UK, is not the easy thing it used to be. Gone are the days when overseas education and home education were subsidised by the state. So the student has to consider alternative funding sources for his or her trip abroad.
1: Student Loan
While the fees structure for going to university has changed, the source for money hasn’t. The student loan was always available to students prior to the education fees change. It still is, only now the amount of money lent is considerably bigger, designed (where the student is eligible) to cover all the fees associated with going on into higher education.
Studying abroad can be part of a UK based course – for example American Studies, which gives a gap year to the student in question, studying in a college in the USA. IN cases like this, the course fees paid through a student loan should cover overseas learning as well.
2: The British Council
The British Council awards a number of scholarships and support bursaries to students wishing to study abroad. To apply for funding, it is necessary to contact the British Council direct. They’ll be able to tell you whether there are any bursaries available for the overseas study you wish to undertake, and what criteria you need to satisfy in order for it to be awarded.
Obviously there are ways and there are ways – so for example having a good CV is one important factor, without which you will be less likely to land the job of your choice. So the first two ways are to learn how to use the search filters, and to learn how to use your CV and your PR week jobs profile to attract the interest you need.
There are three ways to find PR week jobs directly on the site – by creating an account, uploading a CV and signing up to receive job notification via email. In this way, you can search for any roles that interest you (using the specific job type filters or the advanced search function); you can hope that your CV attracts attention in the right places; and you can also see at a glance whether new jobs have been uploaded that may fit your bill.
While your CV is important for specific roles, it is worth remembering that a general CV may not land you any role at all. In basic terms, it’s often more useful to create a specific CV for a specific role and send this directly with your application. In this way you can pick out the most relevant pieces of your skills, and highlight them as they apply to the role in question.
The problem with uploading a generalised CV is this – it tends to sound like you are quite good at everything without being outstanding at anything. The temptation is to create an all-purpose business CV suited to finding any PR Week jobs you might be interested in. This is not useful and can damage your long term prospects for success.
WordPress started out as a blogging platform, but it’s rapidly being adopted as a popular option for a content management system. The platform has some real advantages where SEO is concerned, particularly if you’re using Professional wordpress themes that are designed for businesses.
WordPress as a platform provides critical SEO advantages:
Commercially available themes will generally advertise that their code has been validated. This means that it’s been checked to make sure that it conforms to World Wide Web Consortium standards and that the search engines will be able to read your content, follow your links and will regard you as a legitimate site. This is a significant advantage when you compare commercial themes to free themes, the latter sometimes not being validated or properly coded.
Despite the recent changes to Google’s search engine filters, updating regularly still does have advantages to it. WordPress allows you to upload posts and to schedule them to post publically whenever you like, which makes it quite simple to make sure that you’re adding fresh content.
I would really like to thank Lisa for writing such a wonderul post and helping us gain an HR persepctive to corporate social responsbility. really work? And before I go too much further I’d like to say that even if it is proven to be less economically savvy, it’s still a better way of doing things. Anyone involved in CSR jobs,
I take my hat off to you.So let’s define our terms before we get on. What is Corporate Social Responsibility, and what are CSR jobs?Well, Corporate Social Responsibility, from hereon in referred to as CSR, is the idea that a company can and should act responsibly – towards its environment and towards all the people whom its actions affect. CSR jobs are positions Corporate Social Responsibility: does it in which qualified people try to make sure that happens. An inevitable component of the CSR idea is giving – giving away money and services in some way, usually. And of course this comes in for a lot of flak by die hard capitalists, who (not content with already half-destroying the universe) can’t stand the idea that someone can get something for nothing. The same kind of people, in other words, who don’t believe in a welfare state until they lose their jobs, break their legs and suddenly need a hospital they can no longer pay for.
