Times are tough…Get tougher.

2.   You may be having a job but you want other things like more pay, better conditions of work but you realize it is hard to get those things in your current job.
3.   You may be in a well paying job but you are still hunting for your dream career with or without the good pay.


There are situations that put us in very hard conditions

Qualities of a good employer

There are good employers and there are bad employers. For anyone who has worked for more than a few years or changed jobs more than once you know that you can work for a great company and still have a miserable boss. For each of us the traits of a good employer might be slightly different to fit our personal needs even our needs at specific times in our lives. The traits of a great manager might vary based on our own personality quirks and even the stage of our career. One thing is certain though there are common traits that make a stellar employer and a standout manager.

I have always talked about an aggressive approach towards life and some of you might be surprised by ways in which I would describe my mantras to live life to the fullest. Take a step back and you would find these are nothing but preserving a state of mind that derives an internal peace from your inner self. I have never tried to find real meaning of life because I am not sure where it will land me up. But what I have really found are the ways that make me feel good about me.

Body Language during an interview.

Do you know that bad body language can cost you an interview? Bad body language is one of the top job interview mistakes you can ever do to your career. There are some things you will think you are doing right but may be wrong or do NOT go well with the other parties in the interview.
