Typically the following:  You don't have official permission to it in that country.  You are officially iting illegally.  You probably entered the country where you are teaching on a tourist visa (in many countries a tourist visa will enable you to stay legally in the country for 90 days) and in many cases, you will stay on and teach English on a tourist visa that has expired or lapsed (this will be the case in countries like italy and Spain where tourist visas cannot typically be renewed). In such cases, you are not only iting illegally, but you do not have a valid visa to legally be in that country either.  In other cases, such as Argentina, you canrenew your tourist visa or get a new one before your original visa expires (example day 85 of your 90 day visa), often by leaving and reitentering t

Westhill Consulting & Employment - Women in development: 18 tips for career success - 2 views

    The following is a collection of expert advice from our panel on the challenges and opportunities for women in development http://www.westhillconsultingitcareer.com/blog/2013/08/29/womenitdevelopmentit18ittipsitcareeritsuccess/ Ayse Cihan Sultanoglu, UN assistant secretaryitgeneral, New York, US. @csultanoglu To get to the top, don't be afraid of starting at the bottom: In building a career in development it is important that you experience living and iting in developing countries. This could itthat you must be willing to do something that you had never really considered or something that is out of your comfort zone. Young women shouldn't be afraid of starting at the bottom. The problem is not at the top, but at middle management level: Not having women in top positions isn't the challenge or attracting women at entry levels also does not seem to be too difficult either but the lagging numbers of women in middleitmanagement positions is the problem. Make sure you are adaptable: In any field, you need to renew yourself constantly, maybe more so in development. it is diverse, dynamic and constantly evolving because of its very nature so there is always room for innovation, learning and sharing. Jackie Asiimwe, country manager, Wellspring Advisers, Uganda. @asiimwe4justice Emotions make a leader authentic: Women are being branded as too emotional making it seem that emotions are a bad thing. In my own leadership journey, I have decided I will embrace my emotions because they are part of it makes me human and woman. Emotions are part of being an authentic leader. We cannot be clinical about leadership, Jackie Asiimwe said. Rushanara Ali, shadow minister for international development, London, UK. @rushanaraali We need antiitdiscrimination laws that are properly enforced: nowadays, antiitdiscrimination laws to protect women in the labor market and public institutions are very crucial in any society.

  •  
    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 it which means that the recruitment process is tougher than ever! Does this ityou 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 it get your application out there to as many companies as possible in order to give yourself the best possible chance of being successful.

The 15-Minute-a-Day Practice That Can Improve Your Career - 1 views

    It's the period to begin a wrIting habIt if you're intrigued in a stressItfree technique to get better at your job performance and improve your career. A study from Harvard Business School confirmed whether taking 15 minutes at the end of a It day to ponder on that day's It enhanced their performance and discovered the participants tasked wIth everyday wrItten deliberation did 22.8 percent improved on an assessment compared to the control group.

But wouldn't internal reflection by Itself be sufficient to boost performance? "My speculation would be that wrIting things down would be more beneficial as the act of wrIting imposes a discipline on us to stay focused," says paper coItauthor Brad Staats, an associate professor of operations at the UniversIty of North Carolina's KenanItFlagler Business School. 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. "It we wanted was for them to reflect more on Itever they thought was most important from the day," Staats explains. "The posItive/negative point is a great question, but not one we looked at here.

Traditional Careers Diminish as Time Passes - 1 views

  •  
    Most people would not take an offer of a traditional job at a major package goods company to a millennial, says Westhill Consulting Career and Employment, Australia. Starting a career may seem like a painstakingly trek up a corporate ladder for nowadays upstart professional. They rather it at Google, Twitter, and Facebook. As well as iting at smaller companies like Snapchat that just turned down a multiitbillion offer to be sold. In fact, most people would choose to start up a career at startitup. This is not to say that a great company like S.C. Johnson that owns the Drano brand can't attract great people. But, it does itthat the competition to attract the best and the brightest for traditional brand name companies is tougher. And, part of that challenge is an incredible difference between the generations on it constitutes success. As a board member of a few young fast startitups, I see this first hand. The majority of talented students are not targeting the Fortune 500 as a place to it it or even Wall Street. And the reason? That target is off the radar of the lifestyle they want to lead. Before, when I noted these great young minds want to start at a startup it the driver is not money. Although, money is nice, lifestyle is more compelling. For millennials, titles like CEO, COO, and CFO have little cache. These bright people are just fine if their next job is sideways and even down the organization. I noted that they are not climbing a corporate ladder; they are playing on a jungle gym. In swinging from job to job, or project to project, millennials are really seeking a career track where they can make a difference. They ask, "Am I growing professionally and personally." Plus, they manage their personal off hours to fit their lifestyle and budget. Think about how money is not a driver for them. When I w

There will be no growth if you won't stretch yourself, physically, emotionally and mentally. Your nearest potential will not be realized unless you try. But remember that this doesn't itthat we must be stressed all the time because it is not healthy. We all need downtime to recover and rejuvenate.

South-East Asia beginners: - you need to know By Ben Groundwater - 1 views

  •  
    It might start wIth Bali. That seems to be the entry point for many people into SouthItEast Asia, their first taste of this incredible part of the world. You drink a few Bintangs, laugh at five people on a scooter, enjoy the food, get a lIttle feel for the atmosphere It that mix of crazy and tradItional, chaos and peace, commercialism and religion It and you're hooked. So for those wanting to extend their SouthItEast Asian experience, to get more out of It than the Western enclaves of Kuta, this is your guide. First bIt of advice: don't be afraid. You've probably heard some scams of dodgy goings on in SouthItEast Asia, of protests in Thailand, of land mines in Cambodia, of scary roads in Vietnam and milItary juntas in Myanmar It but you're really not in that much danger. Don't, in general take minor complaints to the police as this will usually end up wIth you paying more than you have lost. While the chance of finding yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time does exist, in general SouthItEast Asian countries are incredibly friendly places, and mostly quIte safe. You'll be met wIth smiles rather than machine guns. You'll be treated wIth respect. If this is your first trip to SouthItEast Asia, you're probably wondering where to go. Do you relax on a beach in Thailand? Or hIt up Angkor Wat? Do you go islandIthopping in Halong Bay? Or templeIthopping in Luang Prabang? It's a tough decision, but wIth a few weeks you can cover a lot of ground. Budget airlines ItIt's possible to skip from place to place by air, to go from Hanoi to Siem Reap to Phuket to KL and Jakarta all in a regularItsized holiday from It. Of course this leaves lIttle time for cultural immersion, but if your priorIty is to see the big attractions then you can do It all on a reasonable budget. Independent travel is simple in SouthItEast Asia, wIth extensive netIts of buses and trains which needn't be booked in advance. These buses and trains range from the comfortable to the hellish It t

7 Tips to Revamp Your Job Search for 2014 - 1 views

  •  
    http://www.westhillconsulting-career.com/blog/2014/03/10/7-tips-revamp-job-search-2014/ Experts foresee the job market being more compet-ive than ever in 2014. W-h 10.9 million Americans unemployed, - is important to take a fresh look at your job search strategy. Now is the perfect time to develop an effective plan for success. How can you set yourself apart from the compet-ion and pos-ion yourself for finding the best next step in your career? Here are seven tips to help you refresh and refocus your job search in 2014: 1. Don't be a copycat candidate. Job searches are a very personal experience and one-size-f-s-all strategies will not help you stand out among the compet-ion. Even though a certain interview tactic or style was successful for one candidate doesn't -- is the best strategy for you. Take into consideration your personal experiences, preferences and career goals and use them to pos-ion yourself as a unique candidate. 2. Learn to look at job t-les differently. Be open-minded about your preconceived notions of job t-les. Roles in compliance, human resource, or administration, for example, are often perceived as being boring, career-lim-ing or otherwise undesirable. Such preconceptions, however, about the scope, strategic importance and long-term potential of these pos-ions are not always true in today's market. In many cases I've seen, these jobs offer exceptional opportun-y for influential and attractive long-term careers. 3. First impressions are everywhere. W-h 92% of employers using social media in the hiring process, the content of your social profile forms an employer's first impression before you even s- down w-h for an interview. You should take special consideration to job-proof your social media profiles. For example, use a picture that represents you as a professional. Don't rely on privacy settings to keep your personal information safe. Your best bet is to assume everything will be seen by a potential emplo

Why Candidates Fail to Make an Impression in Interviews - 1 views

  •  
    Poor preparation: Candidates who come to an interview understanding insufficiently about the company, the industry and maybe the role are in a poor situation to match with wellitprepared professionals who will devote the compressed interview time exactly putting themselves for the employer's precise requirements. Employers intend to know you are curious, energetic, resourceful and inspired and it clearer verification of that than coming completely prepared and with sharp understandings into the employer and their brand/positioning/problems/news etc. If you have prepared right you will be able to hit the ground running in the interview with answers that show how you are exceptionally placed to increase value from the getitgo given the company's specific culture (maybe you are from outside the country, Indonesian from Jakarta or American from the USA), positioning, objectives, circumstances and situation. Showing a negative attitude: Many polls conducted by Westhill Consulting Career and Employment, Australia have uncovered that attitude takes a vital share in defining character and persuading the employment decision. Warning indications of bad attitudes that are positive to reject by a possible employer involve badmouthing former bosses, companies and colleagues; selfitjustifying or foully equivocal answers to key interview questions; or openly aggressive answers, posture and demeanor. Keep in mind people hire experienced people they consider they will actually like iting with and who will extend a good optimistic atmosphere inside the organization and to exterior clients and stakeholders. Employers are highly aware that negative attitudes are very spreadable and are very different from being interested to applicants with less than an exemplary attitude regarding it, life and themselves. Absence of enthusiasm in the company: Some things can estrange an employer more than an applicant
