Best Way to send a Resume

8:56 AM Posted In Edit This 0 Comments »

The most famously asked question abt Resumes......

“What is the best way to submit my resume to a potential employer? I’ve been sending my resume out over email, but about 2 out of 3 don’t get any of response.”

The question is a simple one, but the answer is sort of complex. Let me answer it in three different ways:

Answer Number One: The short answer is, the best way to submit your resume is to submit it exactly the way the employer suggests. A lot of employers, especially the bigger ones, have specific and sometimes complex ways of receiving and sorting resumes. If you don’t follow their submission suggestions, all you’re doing is inviting them to ignore you. If you’re submitting online, use the online submission form they probably have set up. If they tell you to email it, then email it. Fax? Fax it. Do exactly what they tell you and you can’t go wrong, even if that means submitting the resume differently for each different employer.

Answer Number Deux: You say you’ve been sending over email. Email submission, while extremely popular, has it’s own set of problems. The main issue is spam. Your resume is not spam (hopefully) but a lot of the spam blockers companies use in their corporate email systems don’t know that. It’s not uncommon for corporate spam blockers to stop all emails with file attachments if they come from unknown email addresses. So, attaching your snazzy Word resume file to your email might be the very reason you can’t get through.

The best thing to do is send your resume in the body of the email. That’s right, don’t send an attachment… simply cut and paste your resume text into the email itself. This way there’s no attachment and your resume comes in just like a regular email.

If you cut and paste your resume into an email, make sure you go back and fix any line breaks or garbled text that result in you cutting and pasting from your word processor to your email program. A good way to do this is to first paste the resume into a text editor (like the Notepad program in windows) and then select that text from the text editor. When you select this new text, and then copy and paste into your email, you’re selecting the pure text only. Again, make sure you glance over the final email to catch any formatting problems. And finally send a formatted copy of the resume to ur own mail and check how it looks, this way u can alter any changes!!!

Answer Number the Third: The all-time best way to submit your resume is by hand. That’s right… old fashioned person to person contact. Show up at the office and put it in the hiring manager’s hand yourself. Even if you just leave it with a secretary, he’s going to have to kick it up the ladder by hand after you leave. This method is not always feasible, I understand, but whenever it’s even slightly possible, it’s worth it for you to make the effort. That old saw about putting a name to a face is not just an old wives tale. It’s a fact.

But one of the best writers ever hired by a company( As i know ) was someone out of the blue.

HR "Head" 's Words:

One day in the regular mail (snail mail, not email) I opened up a large legal-sized envelope. Inside was a two-page resume along with sample resumes and a formal introduction letter from a retired lawyer on the west coast. It turns out that the gentleman, upon retirement, had started to specialize in writing legal resumes, a very sought after specialization for us. He had taken the time to become certified, and his sample work was outstanding. The resume and the letter were formal and very professional. It was clear in just the tone of his writing that this guy was good… old-school good. Not only had he taken the time to submit his resume the traditional, professional way, with care, craft and on paper- he sent it to my personal address! This means he had taken the time to research the company, find out who was in charge, and put himself in front of me directly in the best way possible. Far from being offended, I was thrilled because clearly this guy knew how to win the job search game.

Long story short, I phoned the guy up immediately, interviewed him, and hired him right away. He specializes ONLY in legal resumes, so he doesn’t work with as many clients some of our others writers do. But his resumes are golden, and the clients always adore him. He’s still with my company to this day.

And you know what? He would never have gotten my attention if I hadn’t made that extra story!!!!

Sweet Dreams !!! Sad Happenings !!!

8:14 AM Posted In Edit This 4 Comments »
Everyone wishes Sweet Dreams to their loved ones before they go to sleep. But we can't assure a really sweet dream !! There is a say or superstition in India that when a person dreams of his friendly gene or close relative getting married, the result would be bitter. They say it would lead a person of his/her relative to death in a mean time.

My mom had a dream last Saturday. She dream't that her brother was getting married to a woman. She believes in superstitions to a certain extent. She believed something gonna happen. I had to convince her and make her alright. She had the same dream the next day too. This put her in great distress. I told her not to believe such things. But still she was worried. Two days passed and she was pretty ok. The third day(Wednesday), we received a news that a one and a half year old child died. The mother of the child is a close relative of my mom, of course for me too !!! That really shocked us, my mom's prophecy came true !!! I couldn't believe this. The child was paralyzed for a year. It can only rotate its eyes. Its body is that of a size of a new born child. Its leg and hands are always held stiff. The child was treated by doctors but they had no hope of curing it. They said that its life would last only for 6 more months. But it died 5 months before its date. I still couldn't believe this... Don't know whether it died of the disease or don't know whether our ancestors were true or not... But i wont blame my mom for this !!! Hmmm!!! What to say about it?? It just happens and we gotta take it as it comes...

Gadgets Of the Week--Part 3

COMPENION - COMPUTER SYSTEMBased on a personal computer that accompanies you through your day and context-oriented docking stations at personal spaces like in the office or at home. Those stations are matching the needs of the user in their particular surrounding, like home entertainment in the living room or conferences and multi-tasking at the office.The computer itself is a OLED-touchscreen slider, with a second hidden touchscreen underneath. This way, it gives you a similar working experience as with a 2-monitor setup. It is controlled per hand or via a “senstylus pen”, that you can use like a normal pen or twist it and use it as a 3d-sensor remote, with a sensor field under the thumb for precise menu controls.

LAPTOP-DESKTOP!!!
The whole idea of notebook docks was interesting 10+ years ago when we had to be frugal with our I/O ports and live with subpar LCD screens. Now that notebooks have pretty much caught up with desktops, do we really need another docking solution? According to designer Yong-Seong Kim, we do.

His go-anywhere desktop docking solution calls for a large slot behind the LCD display. This is where you slide your notebook in, allowing you to access all its information from a desktop form factor. The notebook’s screen also becomes your second display, in portrait mode of course. It’s an interesting concept but somehow, this makes as much sense as the Palm Folio.

TEMPO TRASH!!!
Cagnina Design has recently developed a unique external hard drive for Intech called Tempo. As files are deleted, they are automatically copied to the mini-trash can-shaped device, providing an extra safety net should the user accidentally delete important files. As the 250 GB of space is used up, embedded LEDs light Tempo's exterior surface from the bottom up, as if it were physically being filled.

Designed to mimic the look of a trash can, TEMPO is a unique hard drive storage device. Intended to protect the user from accidentally deleting files, it can also be used as an external storage device. As you delete files, they are automatically copied to the TEMPO. As it fills up, led's light the "can" from the bottom up, informing you of how much space is available. Tempo is just a concept. It hasn't been technologically designed. Hope to find one soon!!!!

The Legacy Of Titanic

9:24 PM Posted In Edit This 4 Comments »
The Titanic was a British registered four funnelled ocean liner built for the transatlantic passenger and mail service between Southampton and New York.Constructed at the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast, Northern Ireland she was, at the time of her maiden voyage, the largest vessel afloat. It cost $7,500,000 to build the Titanic. Today it would cost an estimated $400,000,000. It took 3 years to completely construct and outfit the Titanic.

On April 10th 1912 the Titanic set sail from Southampton with 2,200 passengers and crew, four days later the Titanic collided with an iceberg and sank. 1500 people died and 700 survived.

The legacy of Titanic was immortalized in award winning James Cameron film in 1997.

Dhoni surpasses Sachin!!!

11:01 AM Posted In , Edit This 0 Comments »
For the past 18 years Sachin had been the top engrosser among the celebrities, but now Mahendra Singh Dhoni,the Captain of Indian Cricket team,has taken control of the thrown. MS Dhoni previously charged around 20 to 40 lakhs per endorsement. His demand increased when he became the captain of Indian Cricket Team. His gained popularity when the team won the Twenty 20 World Cup. He is the only Captian to bring enormous glory after Kapil Dev. His sucessive wins against Australia in the finals and the outstanding performance inthe IPL series took him to peak and the result made him gain the King's thrown. Ms Dhoni will now earn around huge sum of 50 Crores per year. Sachin follows him with big figure of 35 Crores.Let me list the top engrossers.

MS Dhoni - 50 Crores
SR Tendulkar - 35 Crores
R Dravid - 25 Crores
Yuvraj Singh - 19 Crores
V Sehwag - 10 Crores
Ishant Sharma - 10 Crores

It is also known that Dhoni was the highest bidded person(6 Crores) in the IPL series standing far from Sachin who was bidded for 4.5 Crores. It is also estimated that Dhoni will be bidded for around 60 Crores in the next IPL season. It is believed that he will be most wanted man in few years. Of course, he deserves them a lot because he is a always a consummate performer and a cool captain. He should be thankful to the Greatest Cricketer,Sachin, because he won the finals against Australia single handedly.

Well guys, wondering how to earn so much?? Then i have a solution for you!!!

!Another Lost Battle!

2:14 AM Posted In Edit This 0 Comments »

For the big time Windies fan... the result of the recently concluded series at home is not a big surprise! Its a trend that has remained constant for ages! But the average fan always hopes!

Though the series was conceded... the battle was well fought! There was a notable change in the attitude of this renascent side which had the Aussies sweat for victory!

The Aussies certainly deserve praise for managing triumph without the likes of the biggies Warney, McGrath, Gilly, Martyn and also Hayden, who was rested due to injury! They are never short of replacements, but surely they are not as invincible as they were! The really admirable feature of this team is that someone or the other steps to fore helming the team to a comfortable position! Even the Aussies had their moments of heebie-jeebies during the series but they never took it to their heads, and of course thats characteristic of a World Champion!

The Windies on the other hand had their moments of brilliance but such moments werent produced consistently enough! The past six months have been really heartening for the typical Windies fan... first ever victory in South African soil... a really good home series against the Lankans and now a not so bad series with the Aussies!


There was good promise shown by a few men who could have changed the fate of the series had they capitalized on the decent starts they had manged! Among the quickies it was nice to watch Edwards and Taylor amidst the wickets, but their opening counterpart Powell being less penetrative this time around! The current pace trio, cloccking good speeds have brought back some sting int the attack which was long missing! And there were noteworthy performances from Bravo and the new bloke Xavier Marshall! Marshall was really astonishing, never seemed like he was a new chap, beating back the attack! And Bravo much to the disappointment of fans couldnt convert any of his good starts into biggies!


The final words of this post are duly reserved for the old war horse Chanders! At the beginning, the series was perceived to be a stroll in the park for the kangaroos... But for this man, the series would have gone the perceived way! Throughout the series, Chanders lifting his bat, became rather a familiar site, invariably standing tall amidst ruins! And his inspirational knock in the second test at Kingston certainly needs mention, Lying unresponsive getting hit by a vicious Brett Lee bouncer... and later continuing with his song as if nothing had happened! He was notably the only one who had unendingly bothered the Aussies! Deservedly the Man of the Series!


The T20 and the ODI series are still at stake!
But I'm a typical Windies fan... So got no expectations, but always hoping!

SMS PEN

D:Scribe is a digital fountain pen that allows users to send SMS and email messages from paper. Just write out the message and circle the person’s name to send. This does away with a keypad and allows you to focus on communicating in a more personal way from anywhere as long as you have a bluetooth enabled phone and a surface to write on. The pen also records everything you write which can be accessed on a computer. Of course for the creative peeps, if writing doesn’t suit your fancy, the D:Scribe also works with genius and not so genius drawings of brilliance.

The design is loosely based on a quill and inkwell where by the quill is the writing apparatus and the inkwell is an electromagnetic induction charger.

Once a message is sent, the status is displayed on the built-in OLED screen. The designers have also expanded its capabilities beyond that of messaging. Should your home electronics and appliances be bluetooth enabled, you could potentially program the pen to input commands by writing in the air. A little abstract but lets pretend this idea is more a patent for possibilities.

TOUCH KEYBOARD


While we love touch surfaces, as people who type hundreds of thousands a word each week we know that there is a limit to them: keyboards. Like this Optimus Tactus, an extruded shape/touch surface/keyboard concept by Art.Lebedev. We really like the soon-to-be-released Optimus keyboard Art but, seriously, how often do you type on your computer?


I can imagine that artists, musicians and video editors would like something like this... however, there are solid LCD tablet displays and Tablet PCs on the market already. Experience shows that, for the time being, it's a limited market. Further limiting it to a keyboard replacement could be economically impractical at best, never mind how practical this could be. The issue of the price is the other key here: by the time a touch surface keyboard could be a commercial reality coming from China via Moscow, touch computing from Apple and Microsoft would be so ubiquitous that it won't make sense anymore!!!

Vantage Point !!!!

9:13 PM Posted In Edit This 0 Comments »
Well done Pete Travis !!! This director has made the movie an action packed thriller. He has worked hard in distinguishing the characters to make it simple on screen. He rewinds the movie for each character and explains their part to make the story. It all starts at Salamanca, Spain. 150 leaders from all the world have gathered there for a Peace summit aimed at extirpating Terrorism. Rex,the GNN news coordinator, is busy with her works covering the summit with Angie's help. The leaders are at the stage. The US President, Mr.Ashton, is ready to deliver his speech. Suddenly he is shot twice- the story catches fire here. The Potus is down. After few seconds the stage blasts. Here it blazes. The rewind starts here focusing the Secret Service Agent- Barnes. Barnes gets the help of Rex and Howard Lewis to find the suspect. Meanwhile there are few more rewinds describing Enrique, a local cop, who hands over a bomb to Veronica. She is the lover of Enrique but he finds fault with her which makes him go to the underpass with a gun. Howard Lewis runs behind Enrique.There he sees his small friend, Anna. The Security of the President had confirmed a threat and had arranged the double for the summit. They are glad that they were smart. But Veronica and Saurez (the Master mind) have kidnapped a man and made his brother to kidnap the Original Potus. And he does it successfully.They take him in an ambulance at the underpass. Barnes co-worker, Kent, had turned a rogue, who also comes to the underpass. Barnes chasing him reaches the place.

The Underpass:

This scene made me pause the movie for a while. The director does magic here creating tension in all minds. All- Barnes, Kent, Howard Lewis, Enrique, Veronica, Saurez, Potus, Anna and the kidnapper are here the same second. Anna crosses the road to get to her mom but she goes shocked on seeing a an ambulance speeding towards her. The ambulance had Veronica, Saurez and the Potus. Meanwhile Barnes, Kent, Enrique and the kidnapper come in face to face. And suddenly BANG! BANG!! BANG!!! Gunshots....

1) What happened to the Original Potus?
2) Was Anna killed in the accident?
3) Was Barnes killed?
4) What happened to the summit?

Well!!! sorry guys.... I won't be telling the climax, because the movie so great that you should not miss any scenes... Movies like these come out once in a while. Lets not miss them.

Vantage Point- Roller coaster !!!!!

Starring:

Dennis Quaid(Thomas Barnes), Matthew Fox (kent), Forest Whitaker(Howard Lewis), Saïd Taghmaoui(Suarez), Ayelet Zurer(Veronica), Sigourney Weaver(Rex Brooks), William Hurt(President Ashton), Eduardo Noriega(Enrique).

!Identity Crisis!

11:27 PM Posted In Edit This 5 Comments »

Its often believed that each individual is unique! Only that uniqueness gives the individual his/her identity! Heres a sweet little story which you would unquestionably love! Read on:

A middle aged woman had a heart attack and was taken to the hospital.
While on the operating table she had a near death experience.

Seeing God She asked "Is my time up?"
God said, "No, you have another 43
years, 2 months and 8 days to live."

Upon recovery, the woman decided to stay in the hospital and have a
Facelift, liposuction and a tummy tuck. She even had someone come in
and change her hair color! Since she had so much more time to live,
she figured she might as well make the most of it.
After her last operation, she was released from the hospital.

While crossing the street on her way home, she was killed by an ambulance.

Arriving in front of God, she demanded, "I thought you said I had
another 40 years? Why didn't you pull me from out of the path of the
ambulance?"

GOD REPLIED,

"I DIDN'T RECOGNIZE YOU!"

Its funny that people spend time and currency to look like someone who they are actually not! Think its better to carry the original identity!
