Although it has been a long time since I last attended school on a full-time basis, I cannot forget the wonderful feeling of getting out of town during a school break. With little to no real obligations or concerns, I felt free. How things change.

This year, I’ve been on two vacations which were each about one week long. As is customary for me, I was very busy the week or so before departing for both trips and even busier for more than a week upon my return.

However, my experiences on the two trips, as they relate to work, were very different. During one trip some emergency issues arose that required my attention and time, resulting in some tense moments. Conversely, my second trip went fairly smoothly.

After reflecting upon my workloads and work-related stress levels on the two different trips, and desiring to increase the chances of future worry-free trips, I started thinking about how to most effectively manage work when taking vacations.

In addition to considering the history of my travels, I decided to poll my friends and

I knew that if I wanted to be fairly compensated for my work, I needed to know my self-worth without being entitled, and should be confident enough to negotiate my first paycheck. I was tired of working for a measly hourly wage (so I thought!) and I could not wait to enter adulthood with a consistent and steady income. I was in for a rude awakening.

With any type of legal matters, especially for an employer, there are ways to cut corners for fair compensation. It seemed that where hourly work could be cut to be held just under “full-time,” the opposite was true for salaried work. I was working my second full-time salaried position as a designer when I realized I was expected to get to work an hour early, and stay at least an hour past 5:00, the leaving time.

download (48)A nurse anesthetist takes on the role of administering anesthesia in a variety of professions such as in the dentist’s office or the hospital emergency room. The basic process to become qualified includes completing the required training and passing the nurse anesthesia certification exam. Here are six things to help get started in this profession:

Formal training

The training and education starts with a registered nursing license (RN) and a bachelor’s in nursing (BSN). Many of the teaching programs depend on the applicant holding an RN and a BSN. There are several types of programs to help those at different stages of learning, including those intended for non nursing students to those with more experience and wishing to learn at an accelerated pace.

Gain experience

While enrolled in formal training, it also helps to get practical, hands-on experience. This is essential for the BSN or RN student and usually forms part of the criteria for the master’s program. It generally helps to have 12 months or more experience prior to entering the nurse anesthesia master’s course.

Job seekers come to know of half the things from different sources, mainly from word of mouth, and tend to assume the other half in a manner that suits them. All those things encourage people to develop myths about job hunting. Here, we’ll discuss about some such myths:

Myth 1: People think that they stand better chances of getting a job by registering with as many job search sites as possible.

That’s a wrong perception people have! Getting registered with all the possible sites doesn’t prompt employers to get in touch with you and offer you a job. You should also look for job opportunities in newspapers and business magazines. Most newspapers have a special section devoted to jobs, and many trade magazines too follow the same practice.

Myth 2: Employers are not really keen to employ people who have been changing jobs very frequently.

People who keep changing jobs frequently are considered to be unsure of them. It’s but natural for the employers to question

Simply put, you can no more depend upon just continuing with the ‘situation vacant’ ads.

Online Job Search Websites

If you go online, you’ll find a large variety of websites, all designed to help you find job listings. Many of those sites allow you to post your resume free of charge, but there are others which charge you for uploading your resume.

Digital disruption is largely responsible for this shift, proving that a business’s approach to technology, or a failure to embrace and exploit it, has very real competitive consequences.

This has had a massive impact on the role of IT. Traditionally, ‘keeping the green lights on’ as cost-effectively as possible was the overarching mandate, with success measured by the lack of downtime. Today, the perception of the cloud as a silver bullet for enabling business agility means technical teams are increasingly tasked with creative innovation and making digital a vehicle for delivering strategic value. However, the spectre of legacy casts a long shadow across these thoroughly modern aspirations.

Getting hired needs continued efforts. Normally, it requires facing many interviews and getting rejected at times. In the process, you keep learning and are often required to modify and widen your approach many times.

Knowing the kind of job you are looking for and how to effectively search for such jobs helps reducing stress and enables you to continue with renewed efforts and a positive approach. There are many jobs available, and you have many options too. If you continue to be patient and diligent in your efforts, it’s not difficult to get an opportunity for the right job.

Forbes has ranked physical therapy as “one of the ten happiest jobs” and as “one of the top ten jobs in high demand” for several years. The biggest perk of being a physical therapist is the ability to help people feel and move better, by relieving pain, rehabilitating injuries, and improving quality of life. Physical therapists’ vast knowledge of the muscles and joints of the human body and extensive understanding of body mechanics helps to decrease our own risk of injuries during sports and daily activities. The nature of our job also allows us to avoid being sedentary throughout the day and assists in our ability to lead an active and healthy lifestyle.

In the world of online applications, it now takes a minimum of 30 to 45 minutes to complete the basic application — not including additional hours spent on assessment and personality tests. In the world of online applications, isn’t it time to ask “how many talented applicants will never be seen by your Hiring Managers because of your application process?” These are positions your Hiring Manager says he desperately needs to fill, right? The problem from my perspective: Most HR Department are too institutionalized and ‘rote’ in their behaviors to accommodate expedited hiring.

Since early man first settled, urban design has existed in some or the other form, though the term was finally coined in the 20th century. It’s a mix of landscape design, city planning and architecture. It is about designing and planning almost every aspect about a city. An urban designer needs to incorporate streets, buildings, landscape, public parks, transportation system, drainage, roads and every other aspect related to a city that you can think of. The task is Herculean!

These professionals have to balance both aesthetics and functionality. For example, while the city or the town that they’re working on, needs to have public parks and beautiful landscape, like artificial lakes etc; the city also needs to be functional and easy to navigate for people.

Similarly, while street furniture like benches, water coolers, dumpsters, street signs and lights are important from the furnishing point of view, they are also important from the point of view of providing people with civic amenities.

What’s the true picture? And what are the key attributes that differentiate these two sectors?

Here are some key factors that differentiate government jobs and private jobs:

Work Load

It is believed that government jobs have less work load than private jobs, and it’s true. In additions, government employees have no target and they’re not forced to work for extra hours. A government employee is never asked to work during a holiday. Isn’t it amazing? But as it is well known that hard work never goes unrewarded, an employer of a private company gives an opportunity to his employee to earn more by assigning him extra duties. Adding to that, a private company’s employee gets an opportunity to nurture his skills under pressure.
