5 ways to still get an interview

You ever stumble across a job posting that ignites your passion, sounds ridiculously interesting and you absolutely know in your heart-of-hearts that you could do that job better than anyone else? As you continue to read that same posting – has that fire ever quickly fizzled once you realized you lack the experience and or/ requirements noted? If you are like us – and many more reading this article, at this point, you probably ask yourself a variation of these two questions: i. Do I submit my resume with the hopes that my efforts will magically trigger some whimsical fairy that will sprinkle some fairy dust over the recruiter/hiring manager prompting them to invite me in for an interview? ii. Should I even bother wasting everyone’s time? Now let’s be clear – if you are a recent college graduate or junior level candidate applying for vice-president level roles, the third and most important question you should ask yourself is “how stable is my mental health?” In any case, you should always be applying to roles that make sense based on the relative latitude of your skillset and experience. If you are changing industries and/or do not possess the precise skillsets noted but generally feel you could learn the role rather quickly based on your previous experience, you can increase the odds of being considered dramatically by considering these five tips in pursuit of that next opportunity. 1. Maintaining a focused approach with a broad industry understanding When researching the actual specifics of the opportunity, take some time to understand the organization as a whole in addition to the industry...

Cheat Days

What is a “cheat day”? Can I afford to have one? These very common questions these days in the fitness and nutrition world. A “cheat day” most likely means something different to each person you ask depending on how they apply their overall knowledge of fitness and nutrition and what’s their personal experience with it. In my opinion, those who are well experienced and know their bodies understand what cheat meals and cheat days are in perspective and what works for them in particular. For the most part, it qualifies as a departure from clean eating (as the basis of someone with a lifestyle who is significantly into fitness, wellness and health). My recommendation for the average person would be to have such a healthy clean eating lifestyle through consistency and commitment, which go hand and hand and isn’t as hard as some people think it is. But the main things to avoid are useless sugar/processed foods, salt, fried food, dairy and alcohol. Outside of that, it’s a go! So for a cheat day, if you end up staying away from those things you’re on the right track. If not, where you indulge in one of the food types that is recommended to avoid, I would then stick to one or two cheat meals a week. Either way keep your cheats to preferably a Saturday or Sunday on the weekends. If you’ve not been eating clean and ready to get start on healthier lifestyle, here are my recommendations to gameplan a way to get into. This will then lead into constructing your cheat days. First off, eat off or...

Brown Skin People in the New America

For generations now, America has leveraged the perception of the land of opportunity. The place where you can escape political persecution, the place where you can find better economic opportunities for yourself and your family. This global campaign is now being called into question. Many in the middle of the America have not enjoyed the flourishing  benefits of globalization and diversity. Economics In South Florida there’s an enormous investment campaign coming from South America and other Latin Countries. This investment growth is much more rapid then homegrown Floridians. In California, the Asian investment climate is as strong as ever. In New York, Asian and Indian investment is as prominent as it’s ever been. Americans are feeling the economic influence in elements as simple as the local Subway Sandwhich shop and Dunkin Doughnuts. Even suburban low paying jobs such as Burger King are now seeing a large influx of brown people. This reigns true in corporate roles such as engineering, technology and medicine. Education The public school system is on the edge of a revolution. No one really knows what will be the results. What Americans do know, the American school system is not improving at the rate that other counties are. You can see it in the entrepreneurs that come here to invest, you can see it in the aptitude in the students that come to study at our best universities. In order to compete in the future, American students must learn better and faster, no one has figured out this equation as of 2017. Americans are becoming less inclined to be politically correct as a result, pushing back against this...
