Why you should get your resume written by experts

Employer or Jobseeker, you must have come across the term “CV/Resume for any suitable position”. Now the question, is there exists a “CV/Resume for any suitable job”? the answer is no. “One size fits all” is a myth and is as false in this case. You are unique are so should be your Resume/CV.

Getting a CV written by an expert is often considered as a time and money wasting “luxury”. But the fact is that, the money spent on getting a CV written by a professional is an investment which pays you for years to come; as you climb your professional ladder. Much sooner than you think; often through your next paycheck.

Times of using a single CV/Resume for applying to multiple jobs have long gone. Nowadays you need a custom CV for basically each job switch or job hunt for that matter. Keep in mind that your Cv/Resume reaches the employer before you and it serves as your “marketing brochure”. And like a good one, it must highlight all the qualities you have and “sell” you for the job.

Like for any other service, hiring an expert resume writing service is a good idea, irrelevant of your career level. Either you are a fresher, an executive or an experienced manager, tweaks and fixes to your Resume/CV are needed and are to be done by experts.

There are several freelancers and companies providing Resume/CV writing services. Which one to choose is a tough call, but a few points kept in mind will help you make a better choice:

-          Who they are?

-          Their experience in Human Resources / Recruiting?

-          For how long they’ve been operating?

-          How are their writing skills?

-          Do they have any certification?

-          How good are their confidentiality practices?

-          What is their privacy policy?

-          Do they have physical presence?

-          Do they offer revisions?

Consider your resume like your “fingerprints”. They are unique, identifiable in a million and are everywhere in the Job market. Do not rely on templates usually posted on the internet.  If you can’t afford a writer, at least use a Resume builder to generate a properly formatted resume.

Why and How to Buy a Used Car

Buy New / Used Cars in Pakistan, Lahore, Karachi, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Faisalabad, Peshawar

Buy New / Used Cars in Pakistan, Lahore, Karachi, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Faisalabad, Peshawar

Why Buy a Used Car:

So, you’ve reached to a point where you need or want to buy a car. Buying a used car is quite a smart decision for below reasons:

-          Saves you money. You don’t pay already depreciated cost for the vehicle.

-          You save on accessories some of those are not pre-installed by the manufactures.

-          Might save insurance amount depending on your car age.

-          Used cars are already on road so you can have expert opinions from its users. Lots of research data is available for on road cars, hence adding some reliability to your choice of used car.

-          You can enjoy manufacturers’ warranty and service; depending on your used car age.

Money Matters:

Now comes the money part. Most of us already have in mind which used car we wish to buy. But it’s a smart move to set aside a budget and look for cars that fit in that budget. For most car shoppers, small or medium sized family cars like Suzuki Cultus, Suzuki AltoSuzuki Mehran, Suzuki Khyber, Suzuki SwiftToyota Corolla, Honda City, Suzuki Baleno, Toyota Vitz, Honda Civic, Daihatsu Coure etc. are ideal. Often used/imported Japanese cars are a good choice at a reasonable price. But again go for the choice that suits your requirements and most importantly your budget.

Key to setting a realistic budget:

Below will help you decide and set a budget for your used car purchase:

-  Analyze your needs like size of your family, commute frequency, distance you travel on average, number of people travelling with you mostly etc.

- How would you like the payment plan? Mostly used cars are purchased at an upfront cost and money needs to be paid at the time of purchase. However, nowadays financial institutions like banks as well as car dealerships offer car loan facility for used cars. If you have ready cash for the purchase, perfect; go for it. Should you decide otherwise, keep in mind that some extra documentation would be required by the lending entity and interest may apply on car loan facility. A guide for car loan facilities could be found at: http://www.NaiCar.com.

Choose a Car for your needs:

Once you’ve set a budget for your purchase, target cars of sizes that match your needs. Like for a small sized family, Suzuki Mehran, Suzuki Alto, Suzuki Cultus, Toyota Vitz or Daihatsu Coure would be just fine. Similarly for medium sized family, Toyota Corolla, Honda City, Honda Civic, Suzuki Baleno, Suzuki Liana or Mitsubishi Lancer etc will be a good choice. Market is frequented by these cars and should you be a smart shopper, you’d make a great purchase.

Research for your chosen Car:

Now that you have chosen your set of prospect vehicles based on your needs, research on each of them for price, features, mileage, maintenance cost, spare parts availability etc. Look for cars that are abundant in local market and are used by people having same needs as yours. You may use various mediums for your research like internet, market surveys, friends’ or experts’ advice etc.  Using car comparison tools offered by online portals like http://www.NaiCar.com saves you lots of effort and time.

Buy a Car online:

Gone are the days when you had to hop through multiple car dealers for buying a car. Though it’s a good idea for research but not necessarily for buying a used car. Many online car classifieds portals such as http://www.NaiCar.com provide all that you need to buy a car; on your computer screen.

Should you decide for buying a used car online, uses the search functionality provided at the website, narrow down your search to a small set and contact the sellers. Ask for them to show the vehicle preferably at a location that is not far from the city. A public place or a market is a nice place for car inspection. If you know all about the vehicles great! Otherwise, take an expert with you who could check the vehicle for faults.

Negotiating for the right price:

Assuming you’ve done your research properly; negotiate for the right price in light of car’s condition and expert advice. Set a schedule for payment and car delivery.

Simple tips on Job Search for fresh graduates

Each year thousands of young students graduate from hundreds of institutes to start a professional life. Most of them are not even aware of what actually it needs to start a successful career. Below are some tips following which one can have an idea on how to go about career path.

- Choosing a Career:

By the time you graduate, you might have made your mind regarding your career choice. The problem lies where one is not certain of the field/industry he/she wants to step into.  In that case a career counsel’s advice must be sought instead of hitting and trying and losing in the end.

- Writing a Resume:

Ever wondered, why they call it the most crucial factor of your job hunt? The answer is simple; your resume is the sales pitch that you’d be using to “sell” yourself for a particular role. This world is all about selling and purchasing, so better the sales pitch, better are the chances of you being “sold at a good price”.

What a resume must contain? Well, some say put in as much information as you can, but in my view, putting too much information could cause recruiter/employer lose interest in you and just end your resume up in the junk. Most recruiters/employers take just 10-15 seconds to decide for a resume to be considered. So, only relevant and most important information must be provided in your resume. Save the rest for the interview.

- Job hunt (Applying for Jobs):

Like all operations we once performed with hassle are now could be done with ease, job search has also been made easy; thanks to increased reach of mediums carrying Job ads. Evolution of e-Recruitment has made is times easier for Jobseekers to search and find the relevant jobs in their fields. With just a few mouse clicks, your resume could reach the company of your choice. Similarly, you are now more reachable for employers; thanks to social recruiting.

Ease of hunting and applying for jobs does not give you a license to bombard employers’ inbox with your resume. You must never apply for jobs you are not suitable for or you might end up black listed as spammer and doors of e-hiring could close permanently before even being opened.

- Preparing for Interview:

An interview call is just the half work done. An impressive interview is what you need to land on your dream job. Up until now, you’ve made an impression you may call it virtually, now is the time to make it “real”.

How you prepare for the interview? Having a full command on your area is not what is expected from you, you are a fresher and employers know that. However, a grasp on what you’ve studied is important. It goes without saying; prepare academically. Common sense, general knowledge, some knowledge of surroundings would be a definite plus.

How to dress for an interview? Dressing appropriately for interview is as important as it could be. Choose your dress wisely considering the job you are appearing an interview for. A perfectly ironed trouser and a crisp shirt with fine shoes is usually considered good, but again do not ignore the position and responsibilities coming along with your prospective job. Dressing casually for an interview is a big NO. Similarly do not overdo with your attire and how you carry it.

- Interview Day:

So here is the big day and here you are; ready for what would be officially your first step in professional life. You have the knowledge; you are prepared for it like anything; now do not spoil all by making small mistakes on interview day.  Reach the interview venue well in time. Being late halves your chances of a fruitful interview. On your call, proceed to the room where interviews are being conducted. Knock politely and ask for permission to enter. Give a warm handshake to your panel/individual interviewer, if they are at an approachable distance; don’t cause hustle in the room by trying approaching those who are far; don’t crack bones, just a little warmth will do.  Sit confidently, alert, with a little smile on your face. Wait for the questions you’ve prepared all the answers for. Answer gently, confidently and truthfully. Do not lie for the questions you don’t know the answers. The moment you lie, you are “dead”. If time allows, provide all the information that you kept from sharing in your resume. Your achievements, goals, ambitions and expectations are now to be highlighted and shared. If all goes well and it reaches to salary negotiations, don’t be shy or greedy while discussing it. Asking your “right price” is your right.

After the interview concludes, make a warm handshake with the interviewer and leave the room with calm and positive attitude. Rushing to leave or panic shows nervousness and that is not desired for a potential candidate.
