How to Get Away From Procrastination - 1 views

  •  
    Procrastination is one of the worst attitudes in a workplace, yet, it is also a master for many of us. Admittedly so, we experience procrastination every now and then in our lives. Since a task has no deadline, nor do we have any timetable, we tend to procrastinate. We may be able to get away with it once or twice but it can cause a lot of problems if it becomes a habit.

    Beating procrastination habits is hard. According to Westhill Consulting and Employment, one of the longest running career development and personality growth councilor based in Australia, almost 80% of employees suffer from procrastination habits. In many reviews, experts are already considering it as an underlying psychological disorder.

    To defeat this kind of attitude, the following are some of the tips that can be practiced:

    1. Stop cramming
    Learn the art of pro-commitment. Some people works better under the pressure of cramming but most of them fail to present a best result. In college, we are oftentimes awed at our ability to pull something out of an all-nighter. It would be a positive way to put it but in truth, we just don't have any way out so we push ourselves to the limit despite sacrificing quality. Thinking of the end result other than the remaining time left would keep you on your feet.

    2. Divide your Task and Set a Timetable
    Just like setting a timetable on the amount of time you should be showering, being conscious of duration of traffic (especially when you are in Jakarta, Indonesia and Tokyo, Japan) or keeping track of the number of steps you will be taking before you reach your office, Being detailed on what you have to do on what time would definitely help you keep track of your task. When you can't get away from cramming, setting a timetable can start fire from under your seat. Without knowing it, you are no longer procrastinating and have finished your task bef

Juggling Multiple Job Offers - 2 views

  •  
    With many graduates walking out from school every year and entering corporate firms and agencies looking for a job, you are up for a big competition. This is one of the common problems of new graduates. It doesn't matter if you live in Ghana, Africa or Jakarta, Indonesia or Las Vegas, Nevada. The fact that many graduates are looking for a job is a big challenged.

    Another one, albeit not considered a problem but more an opportunity, is to receive more than one job offers. It can be pretty flattering but a little bit pressuring as well. What do you do? Which one would you take when both offer good benefits for you?

    Westhill Consulting and Employment has faced a lot of these questions before from new graduates who are having a hard time choosing among so many job offers. Well, first of all, you have to calm your nerves. Instead of throwing complaints on which one to choose, try to focus and review both sides. You have a choice to make and you'll be able to compare and contrast the jobs to determine which is the best fit.

    The following strategies will help you to make the best of this challenging and exciting situation.

    1. Express enthusiasm without saying "yes."
    Any time you receive an attractive offer, express your high level of excitement and appreciation for the offer. Clarify when the employer needs to know your decision. Resist the impulse to accept on the spot if you have other attractive options to consider.

    2. Gather all data.
    If you receive multiple offers within the same deadline period for acceptance, your task will simply be to decide which option is preferable. Make sure you have all the information necessary about both options to make a rational choice. If not, reach out to the employer and seek clarification about any lingering uncertainties regarding benefits, advancement, working conditions, job content, supervision or any other questions you may have.

Pursuit of Happiness - Westhill Consulting Employment & Career Builder - 1 views

  •  
    We always find happiness anywhere in the world. Psychologists also say that happy employees are more productive, more creative and less likely to leave. It doesn't have to cost a fortune to create a fun environment at your workplace. If you embody your ideal corporate culture and integrate joy and laughter into your daily routine, your employees will follow. If you are a business owner, it is therefore wise to do things to benefit your employees and make them happy. If you are an employee, find ways to make your stay in the company a happy one to ease the stress in your workplace.

    As a company ourselves, Westhill Consulting and Employment also face the same challenge in maintaining happy people as there are so many personal and business reasons for them not to. Fortunately, we have some steps that we follow that respond to this issues.

    For Employers
    1. Lead by Example
    As we all know, employees look up to you. If you are too serious, your employees may hesitate to smile in front of you, let alone interact and laugh with you. They may feel the need to be serious all the time. Although being serious is also important, loose your collar a little for you to let happy vibes around you. Add a little self-depreciating humor when it is appropriate to help your employees view you as human and approachable. A little fraud smile will also do despite the pressure. Who knows, they may see your odd smile and lift their hearts to you a little.

    2. Embody Optimism
    Staff meetings can quickly become monotonous. Use each meeting as an opportunity to encourage positive team dynamics. When we are conducting a meeting with our partners once in Jakarta, Indonesia, we were surprised when the manager presiding the meeting encouraged us all to play a charade first before starting the meeting. Those 15 minutes of laughter are enough to bring out positivity around us even when what we are discussing may be a little too critical.

    Reflection forced people to process their days, find patterns and link actions. Some people might think the experiment focused on the successes of the day, but Staats says the parameters of the experiment when explained to the journaling employees didn't specify giving the reflections a positive or negative slant.

    "What we wanted was for them to reflect more on whatever they thought was most important from the day," Staats explains.

Weekly Jobless Claims Fall, Ongoing Claims Lowest Since 2007 - 1 views

    The total of Americans filing new requests for unemployment assistances fell more than anticipated, signifying that a severe stoppage in job progress last month was perhaps a deviation.

Decide on a career path - 1 views

  •  
    Deciding on a worthy career is all about pursuing your passion, preserving an open mind and acquiring about various careers. There is no right or wrong career, only preferences that we all must make during the course of our lives. Take the time to make a well-versed choice and then after cautious thought take the leap! You will be fine on your way to a career that is perfect for you!

    Westhill Consulting Career and Employment, Australia's things to remember while pursuing the right career choice:

    Warning! Don't Fret - There is nothing wrong with not comprehending what you desire to do. Yes, deciding on a career is a vital decision, however it isn't something that will make or break the rest of your life. Numerous people try five or six jobs, before they discover one they truly enjoy. The secret is to not let career indefiniteness become incapacitating or paralyze you forever. Reach to a decision and understand you can always change careers along the way.

    Exclude What You Don't Like - A great method to slim down your career choice is to spontaneously dismiss those areas where you evidently have no interest. Review your choices. Distinguishing what you desire is sometimes made a little easier when you discard what you don't fancy. Think about the sensible career choices available to you. This will help you progress a ranked list of occupations that you can discover further.

    Consider Your Educational Background - Don't set aside your existing academic background, skills and talents when choosing a career path. It is much easier to follow work that takes all of these areas into credit, instead of discharging them and beginning out in a brand new direction. For example, if you like children enjoy it; seek out careers that utilize your talent and passion, be a teacher in Jakarta, Indonesia maybe.

Connect with the Web in Indonesia to Find Jobs Easily and Avoid Trickery - 0 views

Westhill Consulting Career and Employment Connect with the Web in Indonesia to Find Jobs Easily Avoid Trickery
started by jake harry on 27 Aug 14 no follow-up yet
  • jake harry
     

    Nowadays, it would be pointless to use anything but the Internet if you need fast and convenient long distance communications. According to recent research by Internet content delivery company, Akamai, Indonesia is the country with the lowest Internet speed in Asia. Their research says that the only 0.8 percent of the Indonesian population is able to enjoy an Internet connection with a speed of over 4 megabits per second (Mbps).


     


    Nevertheless, if you work in a large city, web connections will not be a problem. You will be able to surf the World Wide Web with a suitable connection as it is commonly available in public places.


     


    Several easy ways to access the Internet in Indonesia by Westhill Consulting Career and Employment, Australia:


     


    Free Wi-Fi


    Many hotels offer a free Internet connection for their customers, even a two star hotel located in South Jakarta costing US$34 per night. Given that your hotel does not offer a service, don’t worry – you can at all times go to the nearest Starbucks or McDonald’s café, which are likely to provide free Wi-Fi just be careful of any hocus-pocus on anywhere you go.


     


    Internet cafés


    Despite the fact Internet cafés are getting pretty uncommon, you can still catch them in some places, generally around schools or universities. Internet cafés are places where you can rent a PC already ready with an Internet connection. The rental fee can be as low as Rp 5,000/hour or less than $1. But, you may need to be a little bit patient in using the PC as the Internet connection can be really slow as it is shared with other customers and beware of some scams that might be going on in there.


     


    Broadband


    If you require having an Internet connection at home, you should think through subscribing to a broadband service, like FastNet, Speedy or Biznet. The cost differs on the connection speed you want, varying from Rp 200,000/month ($20) to Rp 5,000,000/month ($50). But be cautious of double-dealing since it seems to happen all the time


     


    Modems


    This could also be an option, a modem with a prepaid card. There are many cell phone operators in Indonesia, such as Telkomsel, XL and Indosat. Using a modem is easier than installing a broadband Internet service. You just have to purchase a modem, a starter pack SIM card that generally comes in a flash-disc shape, and register the Internet package you plan of using. The prices of modems differ varying on the Internet’s quota.


     


    Cell phones


    Accessing the web from your cell phone can be a bit complicated. Primarily, you have to buy a cell phone that can be used as a tether (turns phones into modems). You can sign up to the Internet pack from your mobile operator and use it as a modem for your PC or laptop. The drawback in using your cell phone as a modem is the signal restriction. You have to make sure the mobile provider you pick has good signal coverage.

Plans for a single visa for Southeast Asia countries unveiled - Westhill Consulting Emp... - 2 views

  •  
    The Association of Southeast Asian Nations is planning to adopt a single visa system enablingpeople to visit any of the group's 10 member states on a single visa.

    Following the lead of Europe's Schengen single visa system, Jakarta, Indonesia-based ASEAN believes that a single visitor visa policy would enhance the tourism experience in the region, boosting arrivals to member states.

    'The plan is realistic, action oriented, attuned to the global realities and designed to ensure that the ASEAN region can continue to be a successful tourism destination,' said Thong Khon, Cambodia's minister of tourism.

    It fits with the group's Tourism Strategic Plan 2011/2015 which aims to promote the region as a single tourist destination, develop a set of ASEAN tourism standards with a single certification process , enable tourism employees to work in any ASEAN country, and create a single tourist visa policy.

    Importantly the strategy has strong support from the so-called 'Plus 3' countries of China, Japan and South Korea. ASEAN is also moving towards the implementation of an open skies aviation policy, which is scheduled to come into force in 2015.

    A unified ASEAN aviation market means that airlines would be able to fly freely over the region, transporting passengers between member states without limits imposed by individual governments in terms of routes, frequencies, airlines or aircraft types.

    'In tandem, the single tourist visa and open skies aviation policy would have the potential to greatly improve the region's appeal as a tourist destination, offering the opportunity to significantly increase tourist arrival numbers from the 65 million achieved in 2010,' explained Khon.

    The plans have some obstacles to overcome, however, not least the inclusion of Myanmar, and local cross border disputes, including the situation between Cambodia and Thailand.

    If it works it means that travellers could surf in Bali, shop in Singapore and eat spicy street food in
