Immigration Diary: Volunteer Work While Job Hunt




While you are job hunting, it is always a good idea to do some volunteer work. Though, it may not give you anything financially but, It will help you stay occupied and keep you away from brewing negative thoughts. A volunteer experience can be added to your CV and may have a good impact on the potential employer.

Immigration Diary: One Good Resume is not Enough






One Good Resume/CV is not enough. 
I always thought that you just make one resume and list all your work experience, job tasks and achievements and use it while applying for relevant jobs. I assumed that the reader will go through my resume and understand my skills based on the information and assess that I suit the role or not.

Heart Talk: My Growing Tribe





When I entered the world of blogging I was expecting to fill this space with my thoughts and ideas. But, I realized once into it, that it is not that easy to create content and sometimes filling even a small portion of this space takes a lot of time and effort. Figuring out the right words, the right time, the right way and ensuring that I am giving right information is not as easy as I thought when I began. I am mostly criticizing myself on how I could have worded something better after I have posted it. It is a constant battle, trust me.

Also, I did not expect this space to reach so many people and that my words, whether I am pleased with them or not, would one day encourage or help someone. A rewarding experience that makes me happy beyond words. Recently, I have made some beautiful friends through this platform. I am ‘discovering’ friends in people and places I had never imagined. The world is getting smaller and my little tribe is growing bigger!

How beautiful is this journey of life full of unimaginable struggles and rewards which may not be what you expected but only much, much better!

Happy Friday, my growing tribe

Job Hunting - Stay Motivated & Focussed






Job Hunting is the most stressful and demotivating experience for most of us. You apply for tons of jobs while all you need is just ONE. So, during the whole experience, the only thing you face is rejection. Wait and rejection can leave you demotivated and stressed. I have been through this stage and have been around friends and family going through this. It is tougher when you move to a new country and look for jobs as it takes double the effort to prove yourself from scratch. I wrote about it a few days ago here

While I may not be experienced enough to give you tips on how to find jobs, I can at least give you some tried tips on how to deal with demotivation during this whole phase and stay focussed.
