09 Aug 11 Why People Prefer to Shop Online?

With the growing surge of Internet usage and availability of high speed Internet almost everywhere, people have cultivated many new habits solving many of their problems sitting right in front of the computer. And shopping is one of them. People are more and more inclined towards e-commerce these days. And even 10 years before who couldn’t think of purchasing things online, are nowadays found to be avid online shoppers and recommending the same to friends and family. Here are some reasons for the growing trend of online shopping.

Ease and convenience

Online shopping is a place where the customer can actually feel like a king, since he can delay as long as he want, shop without anyone watching from behind, without facing a crowded shopping outlet and most importantly right from home or work place, in front of the computer irrespective of time and place.   Moreover one need not stand in long queue in front of billing counter or check time in hand. Suppose, you have a wedding to attend in a day and you want a really nice dress, but you just don’t have time to shop. What to do? Well, buying online is the answer. Buy immediately, pay that time (if with net banking or debit cards) or later (with credit card or easy installments or pay on delivery). What more can one asks for?

Whenever, wherever

Yes, with online shopping you are actually the king, the global shopper. If the website you are buying from ships its products everywhere in this world, there is nothing like it. It is like a shop open for 24 hours, for everyone, anywhere. You can purchase a toy even at middle of night from a seller in Africa, while sitting in a restaurant of Melbourne, Australia. What can be more fun than this?

Chances of discounts

If you are buying online, anything be it airlines ticket or a spa treatment, there are chances at times of winning some discount with the help of discount coupons found on internet through search. In physical form of shopping you may or may not get discounts always. But on web, finding good brands even at discounted rate is not rare.

Hassle free gifts

Online shopping also opens opportunities for gifting. When your dear ones are located in far away city or country, and you can’t reach them personally on special days, but you want to gift them something nice and again you don’t have time; online shopping is the best thing to do. The seller will send your gift nicely with your personalized message to the desired recipient. All you have to do for this is pay. That’s it.

Was shopping ever so easier and happier before the advent of online shopping?

08 Jan 11 What makes Successful People so Special?

Those who make it big are not stars fallen off the sky. They are humans like others, but made an effort to make their lives special by doing something meaningful and striking. Definitely, it’s not an easy task and also doesn’t happen overnight. But dedication, passion and some effective practices can help one to evolve as a winner. Get inspired from those effective people who have made it big and cultivate the habits which made them so special. Here are few of them –

Don’t wait, get proactive

Don’t wait for things to happen or let opportunities knock your door. Instead become proactive and grab opportunities. All leaders have remained proactive and not follower. Always remember to make a difference in this world, you have to come forward and make it, no one will make it for you. So get started.

Get your focus right on your goal

Without a goal motivating enough to make you act you can’t move ahead and do something big in life. Know what you wish to do in 10 years time. Then set your path towards achieving your goal. Now don’t sit back, work towards achieving it. Constant focus on goal is very important.

Don’t have a selfish goal

Most of the average people have a selfish goal, just work towards personal success. Remember, those people hardly make it big. Than mere personal success, think how you can make a difference in this world and change lives of many. Make sure you bring a change in the society.

Communicate effectively

Even your good purpose may fall flat unless you communicate it properly. Communicate effectively whether written, oral or verbal. To communicate well also develop good listening skill. Lend an ear, understand its meaning and feeling behind it. Communicate clearly, without keeping any ambiguity in between.

Don’t stagnate

Never get stagnant in life, always keep learning. Thirst for new things and knowledge will keep you on edge over others. Self renewal is very important. Enhance your skills, strengthen them, and learn new skills too.

Respect others

Respect for others is equally important for a winner. The person who thinks he knows it all and others can’t add any meaning to his life, never grows. Hold genuine respect for all irrespective of social class, gender, race, age. All may not appeal you, but accept this difference. It will help you to evolve as a mature and better person.

17 Feb 10 A Job-Search Guide to Help People Over 45 – XI

Have you worked on your résumé lately? Keep the answer to yourself, I will get back to that in a while, but before that let me tell you without using so many words that there are quite a few things you need to do to your résumé to make it attractive. Your 10 years old résumé will not do. Let’s begin seeing what all you need to do.

Avoid dead metaphors and done-to-death cliché

Think like this: In a hiring season, an employer or HR manager has to go through hundreds of CVs every day before he could call any one person for the Interview. And the worst part is almost all the résumés he reads are written using same set of dead metaphors and done-to-death phrases. It is boring. If you want to make your résumé stand out from the similar-looking crowd of résumés then avoid using any clichés. Use your own language and make it appealing.

Update your resume

Now is the time to answer the question posed in the opening sentence. Have you or haven’t you? If your answer is no then go ahead and start constructing your résumé yet again. Add freshness to your dust-biting résumé.

Do not give complete work details

If you are 45 then chances are you have been part of workforce for close to 25 years, and it is but natural to have done many jobs in all those years. But do not put all of them in your résumé. No one is interested in reading 1000-page epic résumé, and no one cares about where you provide janitorial services during tough times. Only mention things relevant to the current job, and things that increase your chance of employability.

Even if heaven falls on earth, your résumé should not be longer than 2 pages. Not even and half pages.

Enough of reading for today, now it is time to start working on your résumé. Get going!
