Success Secrets for Canadian Immigrants

Image
Success secrets for Canadian immigrants. In the past ten years I have been working with immigrants from around the world. I have also been luck to meet some very successful immigrants - This video outlines the success secrets I got from them.


Few Comments about this Video
Very good advice. It's what we need. Immigrants helping immigrants because non-immigrants keep saying "don't change", "you'll be fine". No, you do need to change. You need to be fluent in one of the official languages and you need to be fluent in the culture, too. I lived in the US for 15 years and 8 in Canada. Now, I'm starting to understand Canadian culture. It takes time and effort. Don't give up!Wish I would have had this information 25 years ago! Great that it has finally arrived.

A comment about this video: Fast tracking immigrants is beyond stupid. I work with a group of engineers and we have a new guy on board. Every day we have to teach him what engineers do!! Every step? of the way! It looks politically correct that we have this guy on board but he is being paid a lot of money for what??? His schooling (laughs) has him prepared for a job at Tim Hortons at best.

Build reputation before career change

Q: I feel utmost boredom in my daily work in a government office. Recently I read few books and done some homework but still scared to switch careers. My ambition is to become a freelance journalist. How to move forward?

A: First of all, it is important to know why do you want to become a freelance journalist. Is just your interest or to avoid boredom in your current job or both. I guess both.

If writing is your principal interest, start writing now. While you are at your present job, pursue freelance-writing opportunities where you can begin to build a name for yourself. Make sure that you don’t use your work time to do your research or write. Use mornings, evenings and weekends to build your portfolio. That’s what most people do when they want to transition from one field to the next.

Be mindful about stepping out on your own without establishing yourself first. You have responsibilities that include being smart about your next steps.

One mom's gutsy career change, and what her daughter thinks

From the Star

Carol McLennan says

"I think the hardest adjustment to make was being able to say "actor" when asked what work I did. I had to take a deep breath and test it mentally before I was willing to say it out loud. I was no longer a human resources consultant, which I had been for decades.

I’m now 60 and had done some amateur acting through my 30s and 40s, mostly short-term commitments, play readings and the like. I always came away with a wonderful feeling, having slipped into the skin of another person and conveyed that to an audience. Then I’d go back to my regular work (and regular paycheque) and raising my family."

Carol's daughter, Kate Allen says

"Five years ago, when I was still an undergraduate student, my mom decided to toss away the consulting career she’d worked toward her entire adult life and become an actress... These days, I’m proud of her for new reasons. Just as I’ve begun to wheel myself across the tarmac of the career world, my …

Selecting the best CV format

The importance of having a proper CV should not be overlooked while seeking a career change or new employment. There is no single right way to compose your CV and if you do so everyone's will be unique. A CV is the primary information a potential employer will receive about you. Remember it is your own personal advertisement and, as such, should show you off to best advantage. Your CV must:
Summarize of your qualifications, experience, skills and achievements (see Career objectives)Project your personality as much as possibleShow what problems you solved rather than 'I am good at....'It should not be a complete autobiography, but it should give adequate information to the employer. The following guidelines will be helpful when setting out your CV:
Your CV should be a maximum of 2 sides of A4 (unless you are including an extra page for your publications if these are important for the post).Selecting an appropriate CV format. There are many ways of presenting information but …

FAQ regarding sending resume as attachment - Common Resume Mistakes' Series - Part 4

Should i send my resume as an attachment or should i send it with it in the body of the email?
Normally as attachment. But if the job posting states something like "To apply for this position, please send resume as reply with salary requirements", then put your resume in the body of the letter AND attach it. That way, they can easily see your resume and if they want a printable version, there’s always the attachment.
Sending resume and cover letter via email?
Generally, recruiters prefer to read the cover letter in the body of the email and this saves their time. The resume should be sent as an attachment. Again these shall be according to the requirement of the employer.
What about Subject of the Email?
It's a good practice to put the immediate objective in the Subject line of the email. A subject line like "Resume" doesn't tell anything to the recruiter and it might not ever be read. But a good subject line, entices the recruiter to read on.

Introduction of Jobs in Genetics

Image
Here is a YouTube video uploaded by HumanGeneticsSociety on Introduction of Jobs in Genetics.

This is part of a video series produced by the Marshfield Clinic about jobs in genetics. This is the introduction of the series. More information can be found on ASHG's website: www.ashg.org/education

Career in genetics

Genetics is the study of genes and their effects. Genetic Engineering is manipulation of genes to obtain the targeted results and is closely related to biotechnology and microbiology.

Geneticists are immersed in exciting science, technology, and medical advancements every day. The opportunities are numerous to contribute to the advancement of science, the care of patients, and the teaching of the next generation of genetics professionals. One must be ready to make a commitment in time, energy, and focus to be a successful geneticist, but the rewards are enormous.

The large, multidisciplinary Human Genome Project (HGP)—the effort to find all human genes and characterize a reference genome—promises to revolutionize the future so profoundly that the 21st has been dubbed the "biology century." Almost everyone will be affected by applications of informa-tion and technologies derived from the HGP era of the late 20th century. Educators, the media, students, and the public need a…

Achieving a career using newspapers

With the continued use of newspapers among school going children, career guidance and development will be an interesting idea and an individual chosen idea rather than anybody choosing or forcing them to do something not out of their interest.

This was revealed by teachers during NiE teachers training organised by World Vision in Gulu (Nigeria) last week. Teachers revealed that through reading newspapers learners will be exposed to an outside world full of career choices rather than restrictions. Many who read newspapers are well versed with their world. More..

Student Visas for Germany

If you wish to take up studies in Germany, you need different documents to get the permission to enter Germany. The most important one is the visa. You should apply for it way in advance, because the processing of your documents takes a while.
A visa is absolutely necessary under the immigration laws there; the only exceptions are for applicants from European Union countries and from states with which special agreements have been made: Honduras, Iceland, Monaco, Norway, San Marino, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and the USA. You can apply for it at the German embassy or consulate in your home country. You can find the addresses of the German embassy and the consulate in your home country on the website of the German Federal Foreign Office.

International students from a third country must – with a few exceptions – obtain a visa for entry into Germany. They can get this visa from the relevant German mission abroad. Basically, the process differentiates between two types of visas.

Preparing for a Genomics Career

Do you know what type of education and training take you to be a genomics researcher or academician? Like in most of the cases, there is not one "best pathway" to a career in genomics. People with diverse academic and geographical backgrounds have made choices that have lead them to their current careers in genomics. Furthermore, there are many very successful biologists who do not utilize genomic methods and there will always be a need for bench scientists who know how to perform well controlled experiments using more traditional methods.

Nevertheless, if you are attracted to a career in the broad field of genomics, then there are some things you can do to better prepare yourself. First, as an undergraduate, make sure you take a range of sciences and math, not just biology. The types of math courses that will be especially helpful include probability and statistics, linear algebra, and a programming language such as C++ or perl. Physics is helpful since physical properties …

Are you going to make the right approach for career change

An IT professional in Bangalore decided to go for a career change last year. He wanted to build his own software company. But even after 1 year, he could not started his venture and still continuing in the same job. He knows what he wanted to do but perhaps due to lack of motivation, he is still could not make it happen.

It's quite human nature conspiring to maintain the status quo. It's easier and less threatening to stay put. To bust through barriers, you've got to really want the new career, and identify the specific actions that will get you there.
First, figure out what holds you back. Are you afraid of failing, losing status, or something else? Detailing the benefits and visualizing yourself in the new career will reinforce your resolve to move ahead.
Establish a timeframe with small but specific actions toward your goal to accomplish each week, and create your own milestones along the way. The old "one step at a time" approach really works and will fuel you…

Career related pressure leads to divorce

Image
Some career paths especially IT and film industry imparts lot of pressure to couples and when left unaddressed, that strain can lead to divorce.

One particular strain currently playing a role in the separation of the political power couple Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger was caused by transitions in both of their careers, the couple admitted to MSNBC.

Career objective analyzed - Common Resume Mistakes' Series - Part 2

During the free resume evaluation we found that most of the resumes begin with a career objective section which is written in the most monotonous way. Nobody will show interest to read the rest of the resume in such cases.

Seeking a challenging position where I can implement my skills in effective manner, meet challenges and gain further skills.
Seeking for a challenging career in a technical field where my abilities can be shown to be of great use and where I can apply my knowledge and hone my skills.

Two Secrets to Keeping Your Employees Engaged

Image
Keeping employees engaged is very vital not only in the industry but elswhere for any employer. As the recession cut into salaries and increased workloads, especially at small companies, it’s become increasingly challenging to keep employees engaged.

According to recently released Employee Engagement Report 2011 from leadership development firm BlessingWhite, 31 percent of employees are engaged, while 17 percent are disengaged. Not surprisingly, employees who were older, had been with the company longer and had more senior roles were more likely to be engaged. Also not surprisingly, more employees are seeking opportunities outside their current company than they were in 2008.

Here are two suggestions for keeping employees engaged:

Coaching, relationships and dialogue
Trust, communication and culture   

But there’s also some surprising news about why employees leave and stay. Here are the top reasons employees stay with a company:

Writing email in all CAPS letters - Common Resume Mistakes' Series - Part 1

An article appeared in about.com says “When you write in all capital letters, this looks (and maybe sounds) to many a recipient as if you were shouting.”

It may be easy to type in capital letters, but as mentioned above it has a strong effect. Sometimes it is difficult to read and understand when we use all caps.

Another problem is that most of the word processors and web browsers will not display spelling errors while we type in CAPS but will show up otherwise. (see below, spelling not correct for CORECTIONS). This would result in sending mails with spelling mistakes.

Now visit UK, and travel to Ireland without visa

Image
Citizens of China, India, and parts of Eastern Europe and the Middle East visiting Britain on tourist visas will soon be able to visit neighbouring Ireland without a visa, under a visa waiver programme announced in Dublin.

The waiver programme will run from 1 July until October 2012, a period that includes the London 2012 Olympics, when a large number of tourists are expected to visit Britain.

Under Ireland's first visa-waiver programme announced yesterday, citizens of 14 countries including China, India, and parts of Eastern Europe and the Middle East will no longer need a visa for a short-term visit once they have cleared immigration in the UK.

The Irish government hopes it will result in extra tourism revenue especially from companies and the Olympics.

Russia and EU agree to pursue visa-free travel

Image
Russian and European diplomats have agreed on joint action steps leading to a visa-free travel agreement.

After spending much of the past year persuading the European Union to embark on a visa-waiver program with Russia, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev seems to finally have gotten his way. Russian and European diplomats have agreed on joint action steps leading to visa-free travel. Once the checklist is approved and completed, the parties expect to be ready to sign a visa-waiver agreement.

EU negotiator Stefano Manservizi, the European Commission’s Director of Internal Affairs, said he felt satisfied with the progress, because the parties had found "a lot in common."

The document in question is called the List of Joint Steps. Vladimir Voronkov, head of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Department of European Cooperation, said that the list still needed fine-tuning "to ensure it was acceptable to both the Russian Federation and the European Union."

Never too late to build a second career

Image
At the time of recession in USA, Barbara Berman was laid off from a mortgage company and faced the prospect of building a new career from the ground up. She was 56.

A few years earlier, she had taken a run at operating a part-time business as an organizer, helping homeowners to declutter and streamline their living spaces. But she wasn't able to give the enterprise the time it needed to grow and thrive, so she put her entrepreneurial aspirations on hold.

Business owners over 45 make up the fastest-growing segment of entrepreneurs, according to the U.S. Small Business Administration. Like Berman, some become entrepreneurs of necessity. Others are motivated by a passion for seeing their ideas in action.

"This is your one and only life," says Dick Woodward, 59, who last year launched Vascular Magnetics, a bio-tech firm at the University City Science Center in Philadelphia.

Barbara Berman became inerested to start her own business.

UAE issues 'stapled visa' to PoK residents including its PM

Image
The United Arab Emirates has begun issuing "stapled visas" to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir residents, including its "Prime Minister" Sardar Attique Ahmed, a media report said today.

The practice of issuing "stapled visas" is new and previously visas were stamped as usual on the passports, the Pakistan Observer newspaper reported today.

PoK "Prime Minister" Sardar Attique Ahmed Khan, who holds a Pakistani diplomatic passport, was issued a stapled visit visa by the UAE Embassy in Islamabad on Tuesday, the report said.

China had sparked a diplomatic row with India last year by issuing stapled visas to residents of Jammu and Kashmir.

What is meant by stapled visa?


When the visas for a visiting country are issued on a separate paper rather than on the passport it is called stapled visa. Often, the immigration officers won't stamp your passport if you are carrying a stapled visa.

Writing your Curriculum Vitae for a placement

Image
Wikipedia says: A résumé..... also called curriculum vitae or CV, is a document that contains a summary or listing of relevant job experience and education.

But many argue that Resume and CV are different. For academic or research positions, employers frequently want a curriculum vitae (otherwise known as a vita or CV) instead of a resume.

A Curriculum Vitae is a document generally used instead of a resume for an academic audience. Therefore, it is a summary of education and experience qualifications as related to the interests of academia. Ph.D. candidates generally have a two to four page document, due to their limited experience. It develops over time into a comprehensive and lengthy statement detailing professional qualifications and activities. You can easily create a one- or two-page, tightly drawn version and a complete version to use for different purposes.

There are other audiences that will seek a CV (adapted for that audience and purpose) instead of a resume. For instance, …
