Youve spent hours polishing your resume, and even more time searching for the perfect San Diego job online, and you are finally ready to move on to the next big step, the job interview. No matter how prepared you think you may be, there are still some things that even the most seasoned interviewee can do to make themselves stand out above the competition, and one is to simply ask the right questions. Answering the questions that the interviewer asks you is only part of the interviewing process. When searching for the ideal San Diego job, it is important to have some interview questions of your own. Some possible questions to ask include, but are not limited to, the following.How do you see me benefiting the company?What type of advancement and growth opportunities does the company offer?Does the company stress continuing education and professional training?Why did you choose this company?What is the culture of the company?What would my first project or duty be if hired?What are the specific job responsibilities of this position?When will a hiring decision be made, and when will I be contacted?Who can I contact if I have any additional questions?If your recruiter isnt able to answer all of these questions, they will at the very least be impressed by the amount of thought that you have put into the job interview process. So many candidates show up unprepared, wearing inappropriate attire, carrying surfboards, eating their lunch, drunk, and otherwise unprepared. Anyone who has ever been involved in the hiring process has stories to share about people that they have interviewed. For example, there is the story, well circulated on the Internet, of the man who showed up for an interview wearing a bathing suit, carrying a surf board, and eating a large, smelly sandwich. Other recruiters have reported that job candidates frequently ask them to hurry the interview along so that the candidate can catch the bus on time, and dont bother to make eye contact or show any interest in the position that they are applying for. This is why a smart, articulate, well dressed, prepared, friendly, and professional candidate really stands out above the rest. It may sound clichd, but if you are serious about the interviewer, the recruiter will know that you will take any new San Diego job that you are offered, just as seriously, if not more so.
Although I am working as an employee, but I always try my best to adopt the entrepreneur mind set. It is important for an employee to think like an entrepreneur. This way, you program yourself to think out of the box. You will do more than an ordinary employee do. You will always do your best and be outstanding.Recently I have come across a concept on earning $10000 in one hour. Dont be misunderstand, this is not to teach your how to earn $10000 in an hour. Rather this is a concept that we should adopt deep inside our mind. You see, normally we have the mindset of fix salary, simply because this is how we get our pay. This is especially true for employee. We are paid either hourly, weekly or monthly with a fix rate. For example we get paid $5000 per months, $20 per hours and so on. This has made our mindset fixed to what we get. For instance if we get paid $50 per hour, we are programmed to believe that what we do only worth $50 per hours. We like to get the pay regularly because we need the money to pay our bills. We are bound to the sense of security here because we get stabil income that enable us to live comfortably.However this creates a problem where we totally neglect the possibility of earning more than that. We cannot believe that we are able to earn $10000 per month. But the fact is that there are plenty of ideas that allows us to earn more than $10000 per hours. We just need to conditions ourselves to be able sense and catch this type of opportunities. We need to have our minds open to be able to do this.As an employee, I think a good strategy is to get a job, but at the same time try to look for opportunity and ideas that can generate big income. The point is not to limit ourself in the fix salary that we are getting now. Think of the fix salary an income that can be use to cover our daily expenses. At the same time, keep ourselves open to the opportunities or ideas that can make us rich.While we are enjoying the regular income of $50 per hour from our job. Lets not ignore the posibility of earning more than $10000 per hour.
Lets just face it: the job market can be a very tough place to compete in. In order to survive in todays job market, people often resort to artificially inflating their resumes with little white lies. Chances are, youre also thinking of doing the same.Well, as tempting as it may be, you do NOT want to risk lying on your resume. Whether it's personal information, job experience, or schooling - employers are finding new ways to sniff out liars and you don't want to be one of them. Job Experience - Clearly this is not the place to boast about fake employment as you are going to list the businesses you worked for which may be contacted for verification. As this is the most likely area your interviewer will do a check on, avoid misrepresenting yourself at all costs.Education - Think that nobody will notice if you slip in an education you don't really have? Perhaps you do have the skills, but you can't afford to claim education you can't provide proof of. There are new services that will allow employers to have background checks - similar to criminal or credit checks - to verify your claim.Personal Information - While some information may not be easily verified, information such as a criminal record, can be very costly to you in the event it is checked out. You can never guarantee that an employer won't be able to find the information, even if your employer is hiring you for domestic work and is not a business. On the other hand, how can you create a resume that will highlight your skills and abilities without needing to lie? Below are some suggestions:1. Give Proof Of Skills Gained. Your skills in the workforce can be weighty indicators of your ability to work in a given job. You may not know what an employer is looking for. With many jobs that don't require a particular expertise, you many find that they are looking for people who are able to learn on the job. Proof that you have gained skills as a worker (or even a volunteer if you're just starting out) can be very valuable. 2. Expand Your Descriptions. Do not say 'I worked in an office', rather say 'I was responsible for answering the phones in a professional manner and directing calls to the proper departments. In a busy work environment I was able to multi-task by providing supportive administrative assistance to the head receptionist including maintaining a filing system, processing inter office memos, delivering documents in a timely manner, directing clients to their meeting appointments and providing relief reception. I was quickly able to learn the filing and switchboard systems as well as create good working relationships with fellow staff.' If you need help you can find software programs which will give you suggestions on wording depending on the position you are describing or you can hire someone who writes resumes to help you.By avoiding putting white lies in your resume and ethically elaborating on your key strengths, you can have confidence that you will get (and keep) your dream job.

It never fails to surprise me how many nurses express their frustration with the world of travel employment. Most often, they wonder why they arent finding the assignments they want and deserve; they wonder why placements can take so long; and they wonder why their agencies arent doing more to help.Its understandable nurses feel like this. Finding the right opportunity can be a timely, stressful, or ultimately unfulfilling process, especially if their placement agency isnt putting in a lot of time on their behalf. However, what many nurses fail to realize is that to be successful as a travel nurse, theres some work that should be done on their part, too! As with any job, you will get out what you put in -- your potential is directly related to your involvement in the placement process. In light of all this, here are some tips to help guide nurses in being proactive during a job search to help find the best possible assignment each time.BE PREPAREDFirst, always be prepared to demonstrate your qualifications at any time. Nursing placement agencies will need copies of your current Nursing, Operating-Room Technician, or Allied Health Professional licenses. You will need to show experience in your specialized field. And you will need to verify all of your certification, education, and experience. Candidates who are not prepared to verify their qualifications often end up with the less-desired positions. BE AWARESecond, know what types of facilities are most desirable to you, and make your placement agency aware of this too. For instance, do you like teaching or non-teaching facilities? Large metro facilities or small rural hospitals? High or low volume staffs? If you make clear your preferences from the beginning, you are more likely to find placement in the type of work environment that best suits you.BE TIME CONSCIOUSThird, do your best to have a grasp of the time frame you are planning to remain. Although the industry standard for nursing assignments is a thirteen week period, many assignments may be shorter or longer. Know when you plan to leave, or if youd like to apply for one or more extensions. When you give your placement agency this type of information, you give them the time they need to find you a position that fits your future and moving schedule.BE REALISTICFourth, understand the concept of pay rates in the travel nursing business. In many cases, the higher paying positions offer more money for a reason. Before you accept a big pay position, make an attempt to understand why it is big pay. For some nurses, a pay increase is not worth working at hospitals with low nurse-to-patient ratios, extended emergency hours or extremely needy facilities. If you do this research before you accept an available position, you are less likely to step into something unexpected.BE INFORMEDFifth and finally, read the entire contents of your contract. Although, in the past, many "travel nurse" s often worked around verbal agreements, contracts are absolutely necessary. Read over yours carefully. Contact your recruiter with any questions or concerns before signing. If anything is not specific enough, ask for changes. The more specific you are on contract details, the more control you have over your job assignment. If you supply all this information, you will give your placement agency the tools to be able to effectively go to work for you and be there every step of the way. They will have everything they need to ensure you the best "travel nursing" experience possible. Most importantly, you will be satisfied to know that your extra commitment to your job future did indeed help you to maximize your potential as a successful travel nurse.
