Get Rid of the Ridiculous Trash on your Resume

Standard

Having trouble finding a job? It is not that recruiters aren’t looking for you; it is just that you are not being presentable enough for them to consider you. That one piece of paper called ‘resume’ reflects your whole personality and you need to make sure that you play with words in such a way on that piece of paper that it attracts attention and does not just end up in that ugly pile of trash. Writing a good resume is like mounting a bike on a hitch bike rack. You need to tie it up really well and leave no lose ends.

Simple Resume

Around the world, you will come across pretty average people who land some amazing jobs simply because their employment application and resume speak a lot in a few words. Here are some key personality traits that a poor resume reflects:

  1. Desperation: A resume that is full of long paragraphs talking about how greatness and you are inseparable is one that reflects sheer desperation. The direction it goes in – towards a trash can.
  2. Lack of knowledge: This is generally the case when you start manipulating your resume as per every second job opportunity you find. A finance graduate applying for the post of a rocket scientist is simply ridiculous and headhunters have an eye too smart for cheap manipulations on your resume. The direction it goes in – down the gutter.
  3. Overconfidence: A resume that does not really talk about your technical experience but tells stories about how you resolved a technical conflict in your previous company would only have the recruiter read ‘over confidence’ all over it. The direction it goes in – In the middle of the ‘to be considered later’ pile.
  4. Good liar: To add false information to your resume is the worst thing you can do. Remember, there are points for honesty, both on your resume and during your interview. If you lie in your resume, and try to vary your field of expertise from one to another and claim to be a master of all, you are in for a lot more interviews. Such an online job application has no direction. It might just be torn into pieces by some frustrated headhunters who haven’t been able to find the right candidate in a long time.
  5. Indiscipline: If a person is disciplined and confident, it shows in their resume. The way you have structured your resume matters a lot as well. If you have a resume with different fonts and ugly line breaks and hideous tables, your recruiter is likely to consider you professionally unfit. The direction it goes in – towards that stain on the recruiter’s table that needs to be cleaned quickly.

It is not just your resume that lands you a job but it is the first step in the long procedure of you landing a job. A good career advisor would be able to help you make a decent resume that would sell you as a thorough professional. Once you have that in place, your employment search might just come to a sweet end. Make sure that you have a handsome resume and an employment application that is to the point and does not talk trash.

Helicopter Training And Learning How To Fly

Standard

If you want to learn to fly helicopters there are a number of things that you will need to do and certifications that you need to complete at helicopter flight schools. These schools are set up in such a way that it is easy for those who want to get their Helicopter Private Pilot License (HPPL) or a Helicopter Commercial Pilot License (HCPL) to do so in a matter of weeks. The flight schools that you can attend are ideal for learning either and also have various certifications that you have to complete.

Most of the training that you are given is practical, but you also have to master various other theoretical elements to be able to pass the license. These include:

  • instrument ratings
  • instructor’s ratings
  • night ratings
  • type ratings
  • sling ratings
  • game ratings and more

The most important thing that you should consider when you are choosing a flight school is to find one that is FAA approved (Federal Aviation Administration) and where you can use your accreditations to get you jobs wherever you like in the world.

Building Your Career

r44_police_shipOnce you have completed your helicopter pilot training, you can go ahead and use your skill to either have fun, or to get you a job. You can work commercially taking people for spins and sightseeing tours. You can also use the license to start your own helicopter school where you can train others to be pilots, although for this you will need further qualifications and experience. You can work for fire departments and police units, you can assist in camera and film work, and you can also work for various organizations as a private corporate pilot. These are all careers that pay very handsomely, so you should look into a number of these once you have your certification.

Before You Get Your License

With many of the helicopter flight schools you will notice that there are a few things that you will need to have before you pass your license. You will have to qualify with at least 40 hours of flight time. In addition you will need to attend a Ground School where you will get all the preparation you need for the oral and written examinations. This is normally over 120 hours in length. You will also have to pass a Grade 3 Medical Examination.

When you want to go to flight schools, you will find that there are a lot of different ones and many in one city or town. The best way to choose the school that is right for you is to have a look at the programs offered and compare what you get with the cost and with the type of instruction you receive. Also have a look at the placement that they offer or if they provide positions for charter rides and such once you have graduated. The best place to look for the top schools is online at a helicopter flight school directory. You will find all the schools that are listed in each area and get the relevant contact details so that you can make the best decision possible.

Further Your Education In The Medical Field

Standard

This article looks at the importance of sonography education for people who want to pursue a profitable career path in the field of health care. This career offers a lucrative profession with above average pay and job security because of the huge demand for this kind of service.

Sonography Specialization Options

This specialized field can be subdivided into various categories:

  • For example, the abdominal sonographer is focused on the ultrasonic imaging of the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, kidneys and the spleen.
  • The cardiovascular sonographer is in charge of imaging the parts of the cardiovascular system, such as the heart and the various blood vessels.
  • Neurosonographers focus on the imaging of the brain and its blood vessels, especially in pre-term infants, to find out if there is any evidence of stroke or any disorders.

Ultrasound-TEchnician-SchoolsSonography education will not only ensure that the graduates are proficient in the use of the diagnostic imaging equipment and interpreting its results but also on how to interact with the patients and other health care professionals.

How Sonography Works

Sonography programs from accredited schools train the students on the proper location of the transducers that are usually in close contact with the patient’s skin. This device acts like a speaker and a microphone because it creates ultrasonic waves and then receives the waves that have rebounded from the interior of the patient’s body. A computer analyzes how the waves have bounced back to determine the shapes found inside that part of the body and these images are recorded for future study by the physician who will use them to make a diagnosis. Sonography education also ensures that the sonographers are skilled in human relations, particularly with critically ill patients who may not be in the best mood, especially when the process is invasive in nature.

Ensure You Get An Accredited Sonography Education

Those who are planning to pursue this profitable career path, because of the increasing demand for health care are advised to make sure that the diagnostic medical sonography programs that they select in cities and states, such as Texas City and Ontario, TX, have been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP).

Certification Examinations

This is important if you want to have an edge over other sonographers, because only graduates of CAAHEP-recognized programs can take the certification examinations administered by the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS). Those who pass these certification exams will have a better chance of getting hired, because most employers require this certification even though the states do not have laws mandating certification for this particular field.

Some of the technical responsibilities include:

  • the gathering and accurate recording of information regarding the patient’s medical history
  • the performance of the diagnostic imaging procedures
  • the ability to interpret the resulting images
  • deciding whether additional diagnostic procedures need to be made

Sonography education prepares the students for the various responsibilities of a medical sonographer. These are the technical aspects of the job, but he or she must also cultivate his or her interpersonal skills to be better equipped with dealing with other health professionals, and most importantly, with the patients.
