We all have our ups and downs on our jobs but we must admit that beyond all these our love for our work stands out and no matter what happens we like the feeling that we’re financially stable.  Our jobs give us provision for the things we need and support our family as well; as such we give our best to show our capabilities to reach our goal of career advancement.   Some are lucky to be promoted; others are not and most try their best through their years of service hoping that their good fortune will come next. 

These are all for our financial needs and career dreams but when we talk of happiness it’s finding a job that excites you every day-something that you look forward every morning that you go to work.  This is also the time when you care more about the people that you work with rather than the amount you get from your work.  Well if you really love the things you’re doing sometimes the salary is not the first to consider because after all if you hate your job you wouldn’t be your best ever.


Choosing a Career and Reaching Our Goals

>> Monday, October 20, 2014

We all have dreams in life and whether we reached it or is still trying to meet our goals it doesn’t matter as long as we’re determined and focused. When I was in college I didn’t followed my heart in choosing my career instead I used some practicality. I’ve chosen a career in computer field because at that time you are assured to easily land a good job when you finished a computer course. True to what I’ve been taught it wasn’t hard for me to find a job because of my finished degree. 

Well we all have our calling and destiny but we can create our own good future when we set our mind to the things we want to achieve. Success is not far from people who strive to do their best and give their utmost performance in every endeavor they take. It’s the same in learning and playing music because when you aim to be a good musician and own a quality musical instrument like epiphone black beauty. If you put your mind into every goal you want to reach you can be the best of what you want to be.


TideBuy Lolita Dress for Costumes and Special Occasion

>> Friday, October 10, 2014

I’ve been counting the days to the longest holiday of the year and now it’s just more than two months and we’re off to our holiday. In our office there’s still no news where we’ll going to have our company Christmas party but anyway I’m used to them already as they can make ways and reservations even there’s only a month left. For some companies they celebrate Christmas parties with themed costumes like the one we had in my previous employer. We were asked to have a theme of our own and I dressed up as a Cowgirl. It’s actually an easy one as I already have some cowgirl tops and I just bought a hat and a brown leather shoes to go with it. 

It’s fun and we’re all satisfied with our own costumes like Mrs. Smith, Korean Mom, Snow White and some anime characters. Other companies requires star wars, retro, ballroom, various decades like 70s, 80s and many others. It doesn’t matter whatever costumes you choose to dress as long as you’re happy doing it and your effort to do your best is what counts most. I was thinking now what will be our company’s theme this year if ever there will be one. It will be fun to have one like having those conservative Tidebuy classic Lolita dress for a change. I’ve seen some online and I find it elegant and very classic as well. 

Well it will always be fun if there’s a theme but if there’s none it’s not a bad news as we can always go to a party with our chosen dress or outfit. For those who want to look for some nice dresses for costume, parties or even plays and stage presentation you can always browse for Tidebuy Lolita dress and shop conveniently wherever you are whether you are at work or at home. 

Check out and choose the perfect dress for your specific taste and style. I’m sure you’ll find one that will fit your need for whatever occasion you might want to attend. Browse their special dresses for wedding, birthday, anniversary, school presentation or just a casual dress for everyday use.


Working Hard for that Beautiful Smile

>> Monday, September 29, 2014

A beautiful smile creates a happy environment and every people would be delighted to meet a person with this kind of smile. But what really makes it? Well it takes great care and proper treatment to achieve a healthy and beautiful set of teeth as well which prompts the beautiful smile I’m talking to. That’s just for our personal care but for general upkeep and maintenance we should look for a good dentist like Powell Family Dentist  to provide compassionate care and overall dental services to ensure a good maintenance of our oral health. 

This is very possible with Bright Smile Dental who can make your dream of having beautiful smile come true with their competitive services delivered to their patients. They can help you improve your oral health with such services like orthodontics, veneers, implants, crowns, whitening, smile rejuvenation, braces and invisalign. They treat their patients like their family thus giving the best services with care and concern. Giving extra consideration to their patient’s lifestyle and personal history is one of their goals. 

With this objective they plan their approach in treating them with advanced procedures, utmost skill and delivering it all with the state of the art equipment bringing about all we need for a great oral health and quality dental services. Getting the right cosmetic dentist will make a lot of difference to your life and like me we can always dream of flashing that beautiful smile with our good looking teeth. 

My kids are lucky to have not just healthy and even teeth but beautiful as well. I always tell them that they should take good care and maintain their oral health religiously because it would define the condition of their teeth when they grow old. All of them have permanent teeth now except for the wisdom tooth so I regularly monitor their daily habit of cleaning teeth for a good practice of oral health. In time if they have need for special dental services I would definitely get a family dentist that will take care of their oral health with meticulous care and treatment.


Business and Music

>> Thursday, September 18, 2014

We’ve been thinking of a good business to start next year as my sister and I are looking through some possibilities of making it good in some kind of retail business. It’s actually my plan five years ago when I resigned from my 16-year old job but I found myself so engrossed in online writing that it was put aside. Paid blogging was at its peak then and starting a business of my own may not be a good idea since I’m busy with my writing career. 

Anyway since we’re really thinking of adding up a new source of income to our current office salaries we’re considering of putting up a general merchandise shop that would have three kinds of semi-stores such as meat shop, school and office supplies and electronics/computer supplies. Well it’s a kind of shop that will serve as an outlet for the things that we often need in school and home without going too far from your home. 

It’s still in the planning stage for now and since my kids are so fond of musical instruments the idea of adding a music store might be a good one. Of course it will have our favorite string instruments like the Jay Turser Guitars I found online, violin, keyboards, drum sets and other musical instruments commonly used by hobbyists and enthusiasts. I know that music awareness can really be of great help to prevent children and teenagers from engaging in various vices. It will be an added skill as well.


Working in Projects

>> Wednesday, September 17, 2014

We’re approaching the last phases of our work in our project but I still can’t project if we can finish the project by the end of this year. We’ve requested for a realignment and extension until next month but it’s still in process so we really can’t tell how long we’ll be employed for the said project. I’m actually concerned with the CAD operators because for extension project nearing the end of contracts they usually minimize the number of staff and operate on a skeletal force. 

With the progress we’re having the first group to finish will be the design plans group and as early as now some of them were given a month extension only. Oh well after the end of this one I’ll start another one again which if plans pushed through will be a longer term design and construction project. Even if there’s an opening in the head office I still prefer to be in the project as I feel more comfortable and I learn a lot. 

Sixteen years in the head office is just enough for me, I want to enjoy my work life now in the project with more work but with less stress. I don’t want to grow old early with anxiety and work-related problems like my friend whose now wearing hair wigs to cover up receding and grey hairs brought about by being workaholic and too much stress.


Importance of Books to Children’s Learning

>> Thursday, August 14, 2014

Books are vital for enhancing knowledge and instilling useful information to children. From experience I know that reading books help in developing the children’s mind in whatever field they want to excel. It brings out the best in you in writing, creating fresh ideas and learning several aspects of education and life itself.

This is the reason why starting from preschool level children need to study with specialized books to develop not just their mental abilities but their psychological and social abilities as well. There are millions of books available for our specific needs and requirement and educators see to it that learners will be able to use proper books according to their grade level. Revisions and improvement of books are also given attention to ensure that learning upgrade all the time.

Aside from the books our children use in school they should also be exposed to other books that will enhance their knowledge and skills in the field of arts, music and some other recreational activities. From the day that they can see and identify things they should be given books apt to their age to develop identification of colors, shapes, images and later on alphabets and numbers.

These kinds of books are usually colorful and with attractive presentations as children's book illustrators know perfectly how to get the attention of the children and to entice them to see and read. Most of them create educational books, picture books, cartoons, coloring books, magazines for children and some other form of books that caters to children’s market.

Some authors writes only and have the pictures illustrated by others but most illustrators can write as well. It’s important that they publish quality books for better understanding and learning of children. Oh well it’s one of my dreams too – to write a book for children sharing not just my thoughts and ideas when I was a child but to share my good old stories with nice pictures as well.


Learning Sales Resource and Selling Techniques

>> Monday, August 11, 2014

All my previous jobs taught me several things and gave me work experiences that enhanced not just my education but skills as well. Even though my career path traverse through a different road from computer engineering to human resource, administration and accounting I feel so blessed that God has helped me succeed in an entirely different world of expertise. After just 5 years of practicing my college degree I was geared to learn various aspects of work by the training and trust given to me by my kind employer. As my obtained degree in College is really different from my passion the chance given to me was just perfect because I was also given the chance to enhance my writing and finance abilities. I took the shift as a good thing and mastered my newly found craft which gave me financial stability throughout my working years.

Two years ago when I was in a pioneering company they introduce me to another untraveled career path which is all about sales. I’ve had some small stints previously in a minor Telco company but it’s not really a full time sales job. Well the company opened a new world to me where I had undergone a formal training in sales and on the high technology equipment and gadgets we’re selling. The training gave me not only knowledge and techniques but confidence as well as how to handle calls and meetings with prospective clients.

Providing good quality training and sales ideas are a plus to train sales force into making good sales of whatever products they offer. Sales is more than just making money out of your saleable goods but learning the best side of the craft as well. By way of knowing how to learn sales training techniques online you can improve your selling skills, learn better techniques, and use the best content available to achieve your sales goals.

It’s good that there are sites that help sales people and account executives to get valuable sales resource, sales practices and processes, principles, learning units with quizzes and all available techniques on optimum sales results. Well it’s not that late for others to try the world of selling, who knows? You might be the next best salesman/saleswoman in the world.


Some Things that Keeps Me Away from Work

>> Saturday, July 26, 2014

My work fills most of my time away from my home and family so when I want to do something other than my office routines I do it on break time. If all of my office mates were either doing online browsing or resting I spend my time doing my online writing. Sometimes I feel like I’m a robot or something for spending all of my time on work but it’s the real me – a certified workaholic. Well few times I give myself a break and wind away from computer and bond with office friends but most of the times I fill my spare time with worthwhile browsing. 

Anyway if there are things that keep me away from work it’s browsing favorite sites for good reads and online window shopping for shoes, bags, gadgets and musical items for the family. Lately my dear daughter has been coaching me to look at gutar center for her favorite musical instrument and accessories. Her own guitar is not in good condition and she’s just using a borrowed one in practicing her musical pieces. Next month she’ll be performing as musician in their mini play presentation and as early as now she’s using all her spare time to master her craft. I’m saving some money now to buy her a better and high quality guitar to replace her old one.


You’re Hired! 5 Ways to Make Your Resume Stand Out In the Crowd

>> Friday, June 20, 2014

The jobs market is a very competitive place, with some recruiters reporting receiving hundreds of applications for a single position. Even when the number of people vying for the role isn’t that high, you are still nearly always going to be up against other people, some of whom may look rather similar to yourself in terms of qualifications and experience. So how can you make sure that your resume is the one the hirers are noticing? Start by checking out the five tips below.

1. Tailor Your Resume To The Job

Your resume needs to tell your professional story succinctly – but there are different ways that you can present the information so that you stand out as a star candidate for the role at hand. You can have a basic template to use, but tweaking which skills and experience to highlight to suit every application is recommended over using the same document for every application.

2. Include A Cover Letter

This shows that you have taken extra initiative, and can help serve as a form of selection criteria if none was provided for a position. Needless to say, this document also needs to be highly customised for each position that you apply for. It doesn’t have to be long – one page should be sufficient, but it can help introduce you and lets you inject some of your personality to support your resume.

3. Include Descriptions in Your Job Titles

A job title rarely accurately describes what the position actually entailed, so consider adding some key words so that your skills and experience stand out. For example, “Online Marketing Executive With Ad Words Certification” is that little bit more descriptive than a generic term like “Online Marketing Executive”. Please note you should never ‘tweak’ the actual job title though – honesty is still the best policy.

4. Make Sure it Matches LinkedIn

While you want to put yourself forward in the best light possible, in addition to always being factual and honest in your resume, you also need to make sure that what you’re submitting matches your digital footprint. It is also a good idea to ensure that your other social media profiles are set so that only your friends can see your posts and your display pictures are relatively tasteful.

5. Inject Personality Professionally

Unless you are applying for a particularly creative role, your resume still needs to present as a professional document. Limit the use of colours, use a standard and easy to use font and while headings are recommended don’t go too overboard with bolds, italics and underlines. Let your skills and experience be what really shines. 

Your resume is an advertisement for yourself, so it is essential to put your best self forward and taking steps to stand out professionally amongst the crowd. For more employment and human relations articles, visit
