How To Get A Job After Graduation – 5 Tips To Follow

Now What

Now What

Fresh graduates worry a lot about how they fill find a job. This is a serious issue considering the current unemployment statistics. They complain a lot about the job openings as most of these ask for experienced professionals. And obviously fresh graduates do not have any experience to offer which renders them jobless. However, this situation can be taken care of if you know how to cope with it. Unemployment can cause depression but you need to stay positive and focused on your goals to get a job that you deserve. Differentiate yourself from the crowd of undergraduates that are roaming in the market and make the recruiter choose you over others. Here are some tips to help you with that:

Create a short, one page resume

Fresh graduates are naïve, without any industrial experience and think that a long resume is going to help them land their dream job. Well, that’s not how it works. If you have recently graduated, you obviously do not have any field experience or an employment record to include in your resume. All you have is a description of the courses you studied and one or two internships. So keep your resume short and to the point. Include the important skills and projects that actually matter instead of writing length stories about your academic career.

Be honest on your resume

Finding A New Job

Many graduates list software and technical terms on their resume which they are not familiar with. Even if it gets you an interview, you’ll be exposed when the interviewer asks you the details about a software program that you haven’t used. It will have a really bad impact on your career. Be honest on your resume and only write down the truth.

Customize your cover letter

This is the biggest mistake that graduates make. It’s unwise to write a cover letter and send its copies to every job advertisement. You need to go through the ad properly and see what it demands. Do a little research about the company where you are about to apply for a job and customize your cover letter to highlight your skills which match with the job description and add how you’ll benefit the organization. It will help you get recruiter’s attention.

Create a LinkedIn profile

LinkedIn is a great professional network. Create a complete profile on LinkedIn and add details about each and every project that you have worked on. It will help you in case the recruiter checks your profile. Also a LinkedIn profile helps in building up connections in the right community to get noticed by more recruiters.

Find yourself an internship

5 Tips To Toned Your Abs This Summer

Cardio Workout

Cardio Workout

Do you get jealous or inspired when you see someone with perfectly toned abs? Having perfectly chiseled out abs is no easy job. It requires weeks of rigorous hard work and good amount of time spent at the gym. But getting good flat abs does not necessarily mean you must have the six pack carved out abs. It could also mean flat abs with no pot belly. If you are only looking for the flat good looking abs and not the chiseled six pack abs then it is not relatively a tough job. ‘Relatively’ because it does require a bit of hard work and for some people even a simple half a mile walk is hard work. But it entails a bit more than half a mile walk every day. Here are some simple tips for getting good looking abs:

Start with the cardio exercises first

There is a difference between a muscular body and a strong body. You could do tons of iron at the gym and build up your muscles and still be low in stamina. To build up the stamina you need to do the cardio exercises everyday and for as long as you can. Cardio exercises include walking, brisk walking, running, tread mill running, cycling, swimming and more. You should do cardio work out at least 20-30 minutes every day. These exercises not only help you burn the calories but also make your body stronger and build up your stamina. If you are going to the gym regularly then you will have to rely on the limited cardio equipments provided by them. It may get monotonous after some time. However, there are some recreational activities, such as swimming, which you may find interesting and also provide for the necessary cardio work for your body.

Strength work out is also required

You may think that the work out involving weights does not shape up your abs. However, it actually does- indirectly if not directly. Any physical work out helps reduce the fats in your body and ultimately your abs are also affected. Any resistive work out such as weight lifting, free weights and others are the part of strength training.

Never forget the role of diet in your life

Healthy Diet

Healthy Diet

This is the toughest part of all; even tougher than lifting a few pounds of weight. The human tongue is fickle and gives in to the temptation. But you need to gather all the will power you have and avoid the foods that build up fats. You will need to give up high calorie diet. This means no more pizzas, chocolates, burgers, ice creams, and soda for you anymore.

Don’t get lazy about the household chores

You may laugh at it but household chores that keep your body on the move help you maintain, if not reduce, your fat level in the body.

Don’t give up on yourself

After three days of workout you looked at yourself in the mirror and the tummy hadn’t reduced a bit. The next thing you would want to do is give up the fitness regime concluding that it is not working. But you need to be patient. Results show up in weeks. You will need to carry on.

In the end

Walking

Walking

If you want to get rid of the abs you will need to make some sacrifices. You will need to get out of the comfort zone and give your body a little stress but it will be worth it.

Posture is Important

Posture is Important

Your sitting and standing posture highly affect the way people perceive you both in the professional area and in personal life. If you have been fooling around all this while with bent spine, then you have been probably sending out signals that you are very lazy and careless. But if you sit upright with your spine and neck straight, then you give out an illusion of a person with very strong personality.
