During your job search, printing your resume and getting dressed for job interviews are not the only things that you need to prepare for.
You only need to do this ONCE and you can enjoy the benefits of your hard work very soon, and after retirement.
Many of us wouldn’t want to stay stuck and be stagnant especially on our careers. Nobody would want to be just a regular employee all the time. Your company has a lot to offer. But why are still you there being boxed by your comfort zone?
Why don’t you make things happen --- like your PROMOTION?
Most of us spend 8 to 9 hours at work, some even have overtime work so when it comes to weekends and day-offs, most of us crave for rest (and probably sleep all day).
Ang attitude na“Bitin nanaman ang vacation” or “Monday nanaman negatively impacts our mind to start a week. So here are some tips on how to make your life at work productive.
When you start working the first thing that will change to you is your social life, the thing that you will surely miss when you enter the reality life of being a working person. Spend time with your friends or your family, chill out a little bit and relax, not exactly everyday but once in a week will do. As they say, people who are close to you will give you motivation but always be reminded that at the end of the day think about the steps that you will do for tomorrow.
It's not bad to chill out once in a while but remember your obligation for the next day. Set your schedule of the things that you will do for tomorrow, prioritize the tasks need to be complete so that you will know how to handle your time for today, how much time you can spend and also when some interruption occurs you will know the things need to be done when you come back in your workplace. Setting up your schedule will not only help you stay organized and focused but will also give you satisfaction once you complete your tasks.
Transform your “Monday na naman” to “Monday na ulit ”which is a positive attitude. When you start a week think of how your work gives in your life, how work allows you to have your life outside of it such as travel, a great social life, luxury. A positive attitude will make a day pleasant and more productive.
Pull out the negative people in your life and surround yourself with possibilities. Although some occurs in your work place, take it as a challenge and make it as a motivation for you to finish your task. If your friends are inviting you to drink but you have overload work it's not bad to refuse them once in a while and let them know that you are finishing a project but will definitely hangout with them as soon as you finish your work.
Let go of perfection. It is not bad to aim for perfection but sometimes we force our self to do things which resulted to be more worst that we expect. Don't force yourself doing what you don't love because most of the time, perfection occurs to those individual who loves and enjoy what they are doing to their work.

Here are some tips on how you can get your new job fast.
Send a THANK YOU note after your interview to the interviewer. It’s a way of appreciation for considering you for the job and it is also a way to show your interest about the job.
Never say bad things about your precious employer. The first thing interviewer wants to know is how you will say about their company when you’re moving on. Common mistakes that interviewees do are bad mouthing their former boss or co-workers which gives a bad impression to the interviewer.
Be YOURSELF. Be confident in an interview in ways you are answering the interviewer question right and appropriately. Looking into the interviewers eyes while answering will inform them that you are sincere of what you are saying.
Be on time. If you already have a set schedule for an interview, it is better for you to prepare before the said date and make sure you will be on time. Not too early and definitely not late, 15 mins before the said time of an interview will do because first impressions really do last.
Dress appropriately. If you've been qualified for an interview, it's better for you to dress professionally and appropriately because again - first impressions really do last.
Share your work experience. If you already have a job experience, it gives you an edge to immediately impress hiring managers but take note that you don’t need to include all of your job experience in your resume. Only include your experiences which are relevant for the job that you're applying to.
Make a resume which is impressive and realistic. Hiring managers are the ones who screens and analyzes your resume if you qualify for the job or not. You only have a few seconds to impress a hiring manager with your resume. Make a good impression with your resume to bring you a step closer to getting that job.
Don’t settle for one company. When you are searching for work, don’t just send an application to one company. While you are waiting to hear back from an employer, apply to other companies as well. Mostly Jobseekers or new graduate students face rejections from different employers before they land on their first job. Everyone has faced rejection with job applications . One rejection or another shouldn't stop you.
Focus on the job that you qualify for and that you will love doing. Applying for every job you see online is not a good idea since it's not only a waste of your time, it may also create doubt in your own abilities.
Applying for a job that you qualify for will immediately give you a chance to get selected for an interview. Take time to think and decide what Job you really want or qualify for before doing your job hunting.
Advance technology can help you find a job quickly. Take advantage of it! Don't just rely on printed job ads. Use the Internet and online job portals like PhilJobNet or other online Job sites. Search the job keywords, title or company that you are interested in. Job hunting requires patience. After a while, you'll be surprised to see that you already have job offers waiting for you.
First impressions last. Make sure that you make the right first impression using your resume.
Follow these tips to prepare your resume for your next job application.
Your resume is YOUR marketing tool, not a personnel document.
A resume is much more than just a document or list of companies you worked for and previous jobs you held. This is where you start selling yourself in different companies. Your resume is your marketing tool.
It’s important to understand that your resume is more than a calling card and less than a comprehensive record of your career. Imagine yourself as the product and your resume is the brochure advertisement which will be the first step to persuade your target hiring manager. If they are convince about what is written in your resume then it can proceed to the next step – which is inviting you for an interview. If they prove that what is written in your resume is true, then you have a big opportunity to get hired in the company. That’s why your resume should be creative enough to easily catch the interest of hiring managers, yet realistic enough for you to get hired in the job you desire.
It is about YOU the job hunter, not just about the jobs you've held.
The best thing about job hunting is you are willing to open a new opportunity in your life. Searching for a new job is a real challenge because it requires hard work.
The primary tool for your job search is your resume which the hiring managers use to identify your skills, abilities and accomplishments before the interview.Your resume will be an advertisement of who you are. It is a "snapshot" of you with the intent of capturing and emphasizing interests which can secure you an interview. You must prepare a unique resume, a resume which can easily grab their attention. But how can you do that? By aiming for the right target. Make sure that the information you provided is suitable to the job that you are applying for. Conduct first a research about your target company then try to match your skills, interests and values for the job that you’re applying for.
It focuses on your future, not your past.
Susan Ireland, a professional resume writer for 20 years, said, “A good resume paints a picture of your future, not your past.” It is not a dry bio of your past. It may talk about your work history but it’s not about your past instead it’s about how you are planning for your future or what you want to do next. Your resume is like a marketing piece about your future, it will be a way for you to get a new and exciting job.
Before you start writing anything in your resume, you need to identify first what future do you want or what type of work do you want to do next to help you reach your career goals. Put only the objectives that will support your desire for your future job to make it a marketing piece. Sell yourself to another company so that when employers see your resume, they’ll immediately get drawn to it and not only see your work history – but also making them see that you’re a fit for the role. So when you write a resume, highlight the perfect experience, skills, interests, and personality that will fit the job position or role that you’re applying for. Be creative (but not too much) and realistic. This way, the resume will focus on what you want for your future.
It emphasizes your accomplishments, not your past job duties or job descriptions.
Your resume is not about a description of what you are doing in your past jobs. It’s about what you learned, what you were able to enhance in yourself and what you achieved in the past that makes you a better person today.
Having accomplishments in life means that you’ve learned things that gives you an edge over other applicants. This can easily impress hiring managers. Convert simple statements that merely describe your duties for that job to an achievement. For example, instead of saying – “I interviewed job applicants”. You can write, “I successfully interviewed job applicants and helped the company achieve a 50% fill rate every month.
It's important to have a specific structure for your resume, in order for the recruiter to quickly recognize you as a strong candidate for the job. Here are a few simple guidelines that you can follow so you can successfully land a job.
This is where you put your name and other details, it would be better not to include your nickname, although some human resources officers would ask for your nickname it's still better not to put it on your resume to maintain professionalism.
Make sure that you include your complete address, the address where you are presently residing. If you happen to be from the province simply provide your present address.
It is important that you double check the contact number, see if it is accurate. You don't want to miss out on a good job opportunity just because your contact info is incorrect. The same goes with your email address.
Writing your expertise or the job description you are applying for on the headline is optional.
Here is where you write pertinent information that the recruiter could match with the job that you are applying for. Make sure to put everything in especially the information that matters. When including your qualifications on your resume, always ask yourself if it will have significance to your job application. If it will not be useful do not include it.
If you are a fresh graduate you can take advantage of this section to highlight your accomplishments in school. If you have honors include it. But if you are an experienced worker in the industry, you can simply jot down your most recent and most significant academic achievement.
This section should include the name of the company that you worked for, your designation for that particular job, and the inclusive dates for that job. You may also include promotions to spotlight your strengths as a candidate for the vacant position. When listing your duties and responsibilities it's better to be concise and to the point.
You may want to title this section äccording to your preference. You can call it "Workshops","Seminars" or "Other Training. No matter what you call it just make sure that it is relevant to the job vacancy that you are applying for, otherwise you will just be wasting resume space.
It is always advisable to start with the Headline, and then work your way through your Educational Background, Qualifications, Work Experience, Training and Other Related Information if applicable.
You could even interchange the sequence of the resume right after the "Headline" part. There is really no right or wrong way to compose a resume you just need to present it properly with all the suitable information.

It is always important to make a positive impression when applying for a job. As they say, first impressions last. So you have to prepare and make sure that you provide a positive impression during your job interview.
Here are a few things you could do:
This is the first thing that would be noticed by the recruiter, how presentable you are during the interview, if you are well groomed and properly dressed you will immediately convey professionalism. Sadly some applicants do not follow this first basic step so as a first tip make sure to look good during the interview.
Make sure that your information on the resume is readable, do not use fancy fonts. Your resume should be clean and without smudges. For a more detailed info on how to write a good resume please read the articles we have the website on how to write effective resumes. Here is a link to one of our articles.
Make sure to smile, it breaks down barriers and says that you are friendly, easy to get along with and happy to be there for the interview. Try it out, it is one of the best things that you could bring during a job interview. It makes the person you are talking to feel good about himself and as a result, you get a spot in his or her mind that you are a candidate to consider for the job.
Make sure to grip the hand of the person you are shaking hands with, it gives an impression that you are glad to meet him or her. It shows that you are someone to be taken seriously.
Never be late for your a job interview, remember that you are trying to make a good impression. So be there at least 15 minutes early for your job interview, or earlier if possible.
Research the company you are eyeing, know what they do, where their business is good at and their weak points as well (you don't have to point this out, during the actual interview). Of course, find out what the job you are applying for requires and what your duties and responsibilities will be to be prepared for your interview.
When you are about to be called to the interview room, make sure to stand up before you are called, and do not take a seat until you are told to do so, small things like this may not be noticed by the interviewer but it makes you conscious of the little details.
Good posture is also important, do not slouch, sit up straight. This makes you look more professional and also makes you feel better.
Look the interviewer in the eye, looking a person in the eye means you are sincere and honest with everything that you are saying. It may be uncomfortable at first but if you do it in your interviews you will feel more comfortable with it and you will find that it is easier for people to understand what you are saying when you look them in the eye.
You don't have to wait for the interviewer to ask you if you have any questions. After you've answered a specific question for the interviewer and you have a question in mind you could immediately ask a question, just make sure that it is relevant to the job application.
Always be optimistic about your job applications, think about the good things that you can do for the company. See yourself working in their office, and or talking to their customers. This kind of mental attitude towards your job application will definitely give you a positive perspective.
Remember these simple tips when attending your job interviews and you'll definitely leave a positive impression with your next interviews.
Make sure that you update your resume once you acquire a new skill, or if you have recently attended a seminar or workshop. It's also a good practice to schedule updating your resume at least once a month until you get hired. The mere act of updating your CV will consciously prompt you to continually be on the lookout for a job. Doing so will definitely increase the likelihood of getting hired.
Check your resume against misspellings, you might think that it might be very menial, but it is something that can and will be noticed by Human Resources Practitioners. Use a spell checker at all times, if you have access to a word processing program, type in your information there first and if there are misspelled words the program will check it for you.
Since you already started using the online resume please make sure to finish putting in your information and all the details that are needed. Make sure to fill up all the fields on the online resume form, it will increase your chances of being viewed by employers, and eventually getting the job.
All information must be verified, the dates, names, references, the company where you have worked, the schools and organizations that you included. Incorrect data is the last thing that you need when uploading your resume.
We highly recommend that you use PhilJobNet's NSRP (National Skills Registration Program ) to boost your odds of securing yourself a great job. You can also print this as your resume. To create one, simply create a Jobseeker account in PhilJobNet.
We all have times when we need to call in sick due to health issues, so here are a few tips that we compiled to help you to be in top shape for you not to miss work.
Go through these tips so you can plan your day at work until it becomes a healthy habit.
Having a road map of your work day will make you more prepared to face the following day, it doesn't have to be an elaborate plan you could just make bullet points on a piece of paper as a guide for your day.
Here is an example of a bulleted list that you can write for your healthy day at work:
- Veggies for lunch
- Walk 30 minutes
- stand up every hour to stretch
- 1.5 Liter of water today
- sleep early
Instead of buying your favorite "adobo" you can start eating vegetables for lunch and if you have the time to cook your own food you can start choosing more healthy food.
Do not take the jeepney or bus if its just a few kilometers away. It's better to walk or jog going to and from work, this should help you burn a few calories each day.
Although standing up to get water or to go to the restroom every ten minutes may not be a good idea, standing up once in a while say every hour and a half could be good for your health.
Instead of drinking soft drinks you can start drinking more water, get a big water bottle container to force yourself to drink more liquids.
Most of us today usually just keep in touch with our friends through social media, chat or email. Now is the time to talk to your fellow workers face to face share your experiences and a few healthy laughs every day.
Muscles and bones tend to get weak when you don't move them, so stretch your arms and legs from time to time to break the monotony of sitting throughout your workday.
Sit up straight, don't lean back or hunch over. The chair should not be too high or too low, your eyes should be leveled to the edge of the computer while sitting.
When it's time to sleep, sleep. You need all the rest that you can get to perform at your peak when you are at work. Don't waste your time updating your profile on social media or looking at every single post, it's better to get some rest particularly at night.
Do a bit of these suggestions each day and you will be surprised with the results.
Sometimes getting the job that you want can be a bit elusive but you might just get lucky with these uncommon tips. All you have to do is to exert some effort by doing a little research and online networking.
These tips are a bit out of the ordinary which is actually good since most people haven't realized that it can actually work. Try them out and let us know if it helped you land on your next job:
Although there is an easier way to contact the company because of the internet, you may want to call the company of your choice. You could look them up online, get their number and ask if they have a job opening for the job that you want. This is particularly effective if the company that you want to work for is not posting the job ad yet, or is just about to post the job ad, this way you could be the first candidate that they can evaluate.
Demonstrate your skill
If your dream job is to be a computer programmer you can create a program that could help the company solve a particular problem. This may take many hours to create but it could catapult your career in programming. After completing the project you may contact the company, talk to them about your interesting proposition and then show them how the program can work for their favor.
Try it out you will be amazed at how many jobs opportunities that will pop up when you do so. We typed in "Customer Service" and it gave us at least 5 jobs related to the jobs in the Customer Service industry. You may also subscribe or join groups that cater to job openings. Recruiters are finding ways now to save on costs for advertising their job openings and it just so happens that Facebook is an open platform that allows postings about job vacancies. Use it to your advantage.
While it's not as popular as Facebook, LinkedIn can be a good networking tool if you're already an experienced worker in the professional environment. Add HR professionals in your network, introduce yourself to them and make use of LinkedIn's wide selection of tools for networking. Recruiters are more likely to use LinkedIn if they're looking for talents that already have significant work experience.
Choose among these methods- or DO IT ALL! While you're at it, make sure that you also take advantage of the Search feature that we included in our site. Just type in the keywords of the job position or location of the work that you're looking for. If it matches your interest - go ahead and don't hesitate to apply NOW.
