Habits to Sleep Your Direction to the Top - 1 views

  •  
    Westhill Consulting Career and Employment is based in Australia, a well-established career tips and information for Ozzie's website that specializes in providing information, advice and guidance to help people make realistic choices about finding work in South East Asia such as KL Malaysia, Bangkok Thailand, Jakarta Indonesia and many more, tips on how to sleep your way to the top.

    Take Power Naps: Our hunting-and-gathering tradition may have prepped us for these days' power naps. Research demonstrates that 20 minutes of sleep in the middle of our workday -- about eight hours after rising --is in fact more replenishing compare to 20 minutes more in the morning. Lengthier naps, those of an hour's value, put you into deeper sleep, which may disturb your night's sleep or allow you to become groggy. Contrariwise, this quantity and depth of sleep is more restorative -- increasing your cognitive functioning significantly.

    Meditation: If you can't catch a good spot in the office to nap, or feel uncomfortable, meditation might help. Close your eyes. Breathe deep. Simple mindfulness can decrease stress, revive energy, and increase focus.

    No Coffee by 3 p.m.: That denotes Red Bull, as well. Likewise re-consider those sugary or carb-heavy snacks. Substances like nicotine, alcohol, decongestants and pain relievers also damagingly disturb sleep.

    Paying Off Your Sleep Debt: Over-sleeping is not the answer, over-sleeping on weekends to make up in general doesn't do the trick. Sleep deficiency is accumulative. Twelve hours on Saturday can't recompense for the limited five hours you get each work night.

    Sleeping With the Enemy: Warning! Research demonstrates that sleeping with your smartphone, as some 75% of Millennials confess to performing, disturbs your sleep. Even checking your devices near bedtime has a negative outcome on the length and value of sleep.

Here are the reasons why you are tired all the time - 1 views

  •  


    According to New York clinical psychologist Michele Berdy, whose clientele includes many in their 50s and 60s "Exhaustion is the expression not just of a lack of sleep, but a much more profound underlying response to the conditions in which we live."

    Westhill Consulting & Employment is based in Australia, a well-established career tips and information for Ozzie's website that specializes in providing information, advice and guidance to help people make realistic choices about finding work in South East Asia such as KL Malaysia, Bangkok Thailand, Jakarta Indonesia and many more, will share you these reasons why you always feel tired at work all the time.

    Running At Full Tilt
    Economics and technology enhance the exhaustion cocktail. Whereas one's 50s and 60s were supposedly a time to slow down since they are heading toward retirement, today's boomers are usually still in high gear working and achieving, on occasion playing catch-up to replenish retirement funds after being laid off or taking a financial hit.

    This feeling of having to defeat the clock, so to speak, has trained them to a 24/7 work life. "It's not unusual for people to feel like they have to be available to work at all times through smartphones, texting and email," says Berdy. "That creates a sense that work is not bounded, which means leisure is always poor. There is never a sense of fully being on your own time."

    Warning! Numerous boomers who came of age with a profound sense of idealism and possibilities see today's world - with its economic realities, unwelcoming job market and even global terrorism - and answer back by feeling tired, an existential tiredness.

Master Bahasa Indonesia and shun from scam while living as an expatriate in the country - 1 views

  •  
    Living as an expatriate in a foreign country is certainly not easy. There are different things to confront, some of which could show to be stumbling blocks, like bureaucracy, cultural differences, and local habits and, in particular, communicating.

    Even though some Indonesian workers understand and speak Basic English, it would be better to learn and understand Bahasa Indonesia, particularly when you deal with locals in your work on a daily basis.

    Begin with basic phrases, like "selamat pagi" (good morning), "terima kasih" (thank you), "maaf" (sorry) and "tolong" (please help), and how to request for directions and about prices, etc.

    Here are some habits to master the Indonesian language.

    Self-taught
    Bahasa Indonesia is believed to be an easy language to learn, and you can just learn it by yourself. You can purchase a dictionary or do-it-yourself books at major bookstores in Jakarta, like Gramedia or Kinokuniya. If going to a bookstore is too time-consuming or costly, you could learn by accessing websites like Westhill Consulting Career and Employment, Australia.

    Take a course
    Joining in a class is helpful, since a course teaches not only how to speak Indonesian but then again they can also teach you about Indonesian culture, which will give you more self-reliance when chatting with Indonesians. This is likewise a great help so that you will be able to avoid deceit or scam.

    A sample school you can enroll to is AIM for English is one place that offers classes for expatriates. The institution is located at Jl. Padang 5C, Manggarai, South Jakarta, phone (021) 8385238, email info@aimjakarta.com

    There is also the Jakarta Communication Club at Jl. Cipaku II 27, Kebayoran Baru, South Jakarta, phone: (021) 7203966, (021) 72791829 or visit jccindonesia.com for more info.

How to answer the question 'What's Your Salary Requirement?' - 1 views

    http://www.westhillconsulting-career.com/blog/2014/05/07/answer-question-whats-salary-requirement/
    You may find yourself trapped whenever asked the question about compensation. It is supposed to be a general warning not to answer the question since it is the biggest scam question a company do for their own benefit.

    Giving too high amount may lead you to not land on the job, but too low then you just labeled yourself. And if ever you take the job, make sure to make up for this salary setback the next time you're negotiating your salary.

    Almost all job applications require to state the desired salary of the applicant. This is for their own benefit because they now gain the total control.

    Kip Kipley, director of human resources for WorldatWork, an association for HR professionals said human-resources executives believe that requesting salary information in advance helps them find the best candidates for openings.

    This is the reason why hiring managers and HR reps want to name your price so do not fall for it and instead there is a way around the dreaded salary requirement question.

    Westhill Consulting Career and Employment, Australia provides you the following tips in answering the said question.

    Understand Your True Value
    Get a better understanding of how much you should be making based on your expertise and skills by doing a research beforehand.

    "It's a strength of a candidate to have a solid market understanding of their salary value," says Megan Zengerle, VP of People Operations at Creative Live. "This can be achieved by understanding what other companies are offering or paying for the role and I always encourage candidates to talk to their peers to ascertain this information."

The Correct Keywords Are Important When Applying for Jobs Online - 1 views

  •  
    http://www.westhillconsulting-career.com/blog/2014/04/11/correct-keywords-important-applying-jobs-online/
    Westhill Consulting Career & Employment Australia is an information based website for expats who wish to work in Southeast Asia and the world. We are hoping the following information is useful.


    Make the most of any opportunity by using these tips and tricks to be sure your resume goes to the top of the list, whether you are looking for a job locally or you want to work abroad like countries such as KL Malaysia, Beijing China, Jakarta Indonesia and many more.


    Applying for a job online can be a lot like a guessing game. Plus there are many warnings of scams and other fraudulent stuff online.


    For all the effort you put into marketing your experience and qualifications, the deciding factor that gets your resume into the hands of an actual person often comes down to using the right keywords.


    Most companies rely on computer software programs to review thousands of resumes and select the ones with particular keywords - not necessarily impressive accomplishments - so they can then be reviewed by a recruiter and, eventually, a hiring manager.


    Unfortunately for job seekers, these all-powerful keywords aren't revealed in the job description - at least not overtly.


    Abby Kohut, a former human resources executive and founder of www.absoluteabby.com, said the best way to crack the code of these applicant tracking systems (ATS) is to put yourself in the mind of the recruiter and take your best guess at what phrases they would use to search for the best applicants for the position.


    "You look at the job description, read it word by word and say 'would the recruiter use it to search for resumes?' " said Kohut, who recruited for 16 years at companies in a variety of industries including pharmaceuticals, health care, publishing and education. Now, she helps job seekers and is launching a nationwide tour to teach the tricks of the modern job search.

Westhill Consulting & Employment How to Give Yourself the Best Possible Chance of Landi... - 1 views

  •  
    Unless you have been living under a rock for the past 3 years, you'll know that job hunting is tough. In fact, in general the world of employment is rocky and is something that has affected people massively over the past couple of years. With people being made redundant, companies cutting back on new intake and less opportunities being made available, people are stuck. This has resulted in massive numbers of people applying for vacancies when they do become available - which means that the recruitment process is tougher than ever! Does this mean you need to be stuck in a job you hate or living a life on benefits? Not at all. It means you need to be inventive, organized and well informed on the ways of recruitment, to give yourself the best possible chance of being given any job that you apply for.

    Keep At It

    It can be disheartening when you're looking for a job and nothing seems to come up of. The first thing to remember is that climbing a career ladder is tough and you'll be up against some stiff competition. Companies can only see a limited number of people during their recruitment process so are often very picky when it comes to who gets to the interview stage. You need to bear this in mind and don't give up when it seems like you're just not getting anywhere at all.

    Instead make sure that you look in different places for job adverts and keep applying for any that peak your interest. Don't put all of your eggs in one basket and apply for one job at a time - get your application out there to as many companies as possible in order to give yourself the best possible chance of being successful.

    Think Outside The Box

    Sometimes you need to take the initiative and contact a company, even if they aren't advertising jobs. It's not recommended that you simply spam every company in your local area with letters, but if there is a company that you would love to work for - why not let them know? Companies generally like people that are passionate ab
