Jobs for Students

Posted by patrick

By Alex Wu

While it is not easy too find jobs when you are not yet graduated from college, you can take chance of the available part time job opportunities. Students actually have many options for part time jobs because many organizations and businesses need flexible staffs to make sure the small tasks and operational activities are done on time. Part time workers help to handle a lot, from the seasonal work loads to the simple day to day tasks. You usually work in shifts or few days in a week so that there is room to manage your other activities. Of course it can be messy without good time management. But if you really consider spending time for value-added activities during your college years, part time job maybe one of the extra 'activities' you should add into the schedule. Well, students can take jobs as follows and consider the advantages and disadvantages:

1. On-campus jobs. You can contact the college employment service to find information about on campus jobs. In many campuses, administrative and other formal jobs are categorized into work study. If you are not qualified for them, then you can find positions at the hostel, kitchen, or others. The jobs do not pay high, but you can enjoy the extra income of your spare time. So why not? Imagine if you work as beverage boy/girl, dishwasher, or others for few hours every day or few days in a week when you usually spend the time for sleeping or gossiping, isn't that a good choice? You earn extra money and you spend the time wisely. Of course the work is usually not challenging, but it is fine because you get some experiences and learn to be responsible. You can always find other jobs.

2. Work Study. Work study is usually job that requires you to work for several hours or shifts in a week at your university. It can be as library staff, clerk, department receptionist, administrative jobs, or others. You usually need to fill the application form provided by the Financial Aid Office at your university to see if you are qualified for work study. The pay is not high, but you have advantages for the flexible hours and the experience. Work study will give you great feel of office environment because the work and surrounding is usually quite formal and well-planned. Also, it is easier for you to manage time between class schedule and work shifts.

3. Off-campus jobs. Off campus jobs maybe the most challenging of all. You have more difficulties in time allocation and work longer hours. The pay is usually higher because the workload is too. But you should take it as a challenge to prove out your credibility and productivity. Off-campus jobs range from many, public relation, department store staff, retail staff, marketer, housekeeper, online jobs, nanny, tutor, etc. The extra income can be considerable since you may also get other benefits from the workplace.

4. Internships. Internships are great for real-work experience. You are not always paid, but it is big advantage to put intern experience in your CV. Discuss with your academic advisor about the available intern programs for your major. Even though you may not get paid, the experience should outweigh the time and effort you spend. And you can still do other jobs while that.

Updates On Electrician Qualifications For 2010

Posted by patrick

By Jason Kendall

It's notable that a career within the electrical industry, with its attractive options, remains a choice for lots of people. Whilst the original term is 'Electro-Mechanical Engineering' we will simply refer to the subject as the Electrical Industry. Equally we'll focus on those credentials that fit the UK domestic and commercial sector rather than those from around the world. Due to the huge list of opportunities available for a career in the electrical industry, we have to begin by focusing on the main areas and look at the 'add-ons' later on.

We consider that there are two ways to enter the electrical market. The first is for those wishing to train via a more traditional apprenticeship route, and the second is for people who are entering the field at a later stage in life. To clarify, we'll label each of them as the 'Mature Entrants' and the 'Junior Entrants'.

Principally, Mature Entrants join the electrical workplace later on, and focus on becoming self employed. This means working on their own and not having to pay salaries to anyone else. Those who join as Junior Entrants, on the other hand, appear to do so with the aim of joining an established electrical firm - in order to gain further qualifications and experience whilst picking up practical and other work-place skills. Often a young apprentice will be in their first job since leaving school, and will therefore have a host of ancillary skills to learn during their first few years as a working adult.

The different ways into electrical work have two distinct types of training: Junior entrants go through NVQ training in England and Wales, and SVQ training in Scotland. The training itself is similar to non NVQ training, but completion of the full programme means getting the actual qualifications. 'Junior Entrants' will have to be in an apprenticeship of some sort in order to achieve the testing and course work required.

Instead of seeking a work-based training environment, the Mature Entrant often seems to focus on working as a self employed person where different qualifications to NVQ's are preferred. In the main the person will aim to gain the best from their investment costs against the return for that training. This method may appear to reduce the levels of knowledge overall, but it does allow for an increase in the speed by which people enter and become more prevalent within the market.

We should differentiate the prospective earnings into the two categories of employed and self-employed. With self-employment a person may be working on a part-time or full time basis -to that end we will assume they are working full time. The aptitude and talent for getting things done can affect the levels of salary as well as any experience or knowledge gained.

Wages for 'Junior Entrants' can become as high as 30,000 or more per annum with the right experience, although starting salaries are around 12,000. Mature Entrants are more difficult to assess, and incomes up to and above 70k are regularly reported within the UK Press. Irrespective of this salary level many self-employed people also need to manage extra business costs such as tools, clothes and vans. In addition to this they will also have to allow for items such as accountancy and personal/professional insurance. Whilst there is lots of available work, a severe skills shortage means electricians are very much in demand. Working 7 days a week is totally achievable for most people if they want it. Although by working very long hours and having assistants to help, the figures of 70-100 thousand advertised in newspapers might be achieved, it wouldn't be easy.

In light of the above, it is often understood that there is wild variance between the working expectations of Junior and Mature Entrants. Electricians who are 'Junior Entrants' would work a simple 40 hour working week. To be fair, if the Mature electrician is focused on the domestic market then they often find themselves working out of hours, especially to support their clients when they get home. With many self-employed electricians the core of their income comes from items such as business testing and installation and as such operates during the main part of the week.

Once a career in electrical work has been chosen, a Junior Electrician is often at the mercy of their employer when it comes to learning new skills and expertise. The mature entrant, on the other hand, may seek training outside of their core electrical field, possibly including plumbing and gas work. This gives them the chance to complete work for domestic clients without having to sub contract jobs out every time.

An up to the minute angle - involving a new level of skills - is that of the so called 'Green Engineer'. The chance to win some big employment and business advantages within the governmental as well as the traditional growth sector means that this area could be attractive to both Junior and Mature Entrants alike.

Why Is Remote Viewing So Secret?

Posted by patrick

By Hugo Preis

Did you know that it is entirely possible to see people, places and events even when they are not within range of your regular five senses? Even if you cannot hear or see something through regular means, you will find that through using your own innate psychic ability, you can really perceive things that are a long way from where you are.

Remember that remote viewing is not the same as an out of body experience. With an out of body experience, which is also called astral travel, you travel in a spirit form to see things or places far from you.

On the other hand, with remote viewing, you are looking at a form of psychic dowsing, where you can use your innate psychic power to find out what you need. Essentially, you will be using ESP to find out what you need.

The truth of the matter is that all people are capable of it. While it is easier to develop when you are young, you will find that you can easily learn it when you are older as well. When you think about the fact that you only use ten percent of your brain, there is a lot of potential there that is going untapped.

Do you like the idea of being able to reach out and to reassure yourself that your children are okay? This kind of security and peace of mind can be used to make remote viewing that much more beneficial for you and your family.

When you are thinking about learning psychic abilities like this one, you will find that it takes no natural talent. As soon as you are taught to enter the trance-like state where the remote viewing takes place, you will be able to use it to your heart's content, no matter what kind of talent you might have.

There are some simple techniques that you can try.

*Start by going to a quiet pace and closing your eyes. You should get rid of as many distractions as you can before you begin.

*As you feel your body relax, start to breathe through your nose. You might want to make it easier for yourself by pressing your tongue to the roof of your mouth; happily enough, this will also keep you from yawning!

*You need to believe in your own ability to succeed. Remember that as you put yourself deeper into your relaxed state that you need to tell yourself that you are capable o seeing things that you are not physically seeing.

*To get started, you need to think about how to view something that you know intimately. One great way to get the results that you need is to picture yourself, but from an angle that other people use. Don't think about the way that you look in the mirror; instead think about how you look from straight on or how you look from above. This can be a little complicated, but once you have learned to do this, the rest should come more easily. Just remember to be patient with yourself!

*One you can view yourself from a remote perspective, take a moment to think about how you can cast your viewing eye even wider. Think about a location that you know very well, whether it is a park that you are very familiar with or the home of a friend. Look for details, like where the books are or what is playing on the television. After you have finished, consider going to the place or calling to see if what you saw was correct; this will really allow you to check your results and to see what is going on.

You might want to try these exercises with two people who can check each other. You and your friend should sit in separate rooms, outside of the view of each other. Take turns making simply movements like stroking your own hair or waving and then try to use remote viewing to see what is going on in their room. This can allow you to check yourself right away and you will then be able to compare results.

After you have finished your remote viewing techniques, you are going to find that entering a relaxed state is much easier than you think. Consider how you can use a trance-like reaction state to hypnotize yourself. Even if you are still wide awake, you are going to be relaxed enough to get into your own subconscious.

The truth of the matter is that it is much easier to get messages from your sub-conscious than you might think; consider how the remote viewing techniques might help you!
