Typing Vs. Handwriting: Which Is Better For Your Memory?

I agree with this 1000 percent. I may be old-fashioned but learning while doing is something that cannot be forgotten. Be real, be unique and be a ‘learned individual’ not a tech-driven robot of conveniences.

There is a Catch: Getting Hired is a Process of Negotiation with Results

By IdeasNConversations @IdeasN

“In today’s economic challenges, many struggle to get through the key hole of getting hired. Millennials face the same challenges as many have started moving from school to the workforce.

@2016 2016GettingHired

The actual challenge is how to get across with your interviewer so that he/she will get excited in offering you that employment opportunity. The image below provides meaningful tips that one can use when negotiating of an employment. An interview process is a negotiation activity between two parties involved such as the prospective employee and the prospective employer.

Here is the catch; prior to an interview, a well written resume is essential. Resume is a reflection of oneself, a document that will create an impression to the candidate-sourcer, whether or not such resume owner will fit to the opened employment opportunity. Our experienced international business leaders always suggested that request a trustworthy experienced professional to evaluate your resume before sending to a prospective employer. The feedback can help you land a job. There is only one chance to get in front of the resume-reviewer within the vicinity or before the representative of an employer.

#11essentialsofresume #elevenessentialsofresume #resumewithcompetency #resumewithpersonality

@2016 2016CompetentResume

If you don’t trust yourself in writing your own resume, locate an experienced professional who is not a ‘cookie cutter’ of resume writing. When you engage with a ‘cookie cutter’ your resume will get into piles of ‘for later review’. Invest for  a non-cookie cutter resume writer; someone who will take extra effort in understanding who you are; then create the package of your competency including your personality. A customized documentation of oneself create an impact to a prospective employer – the representative who will read it would like to invite you for an interview in person. That is the main objective of a great Resume.

My experiences taught me that this type of activity is very essential to validate how I felt at my next home town. Absolutely a great service for those who like to become familiar with the quality of life that they will have in the future.

Your employer will pay for this service especially when they like you to become successful at your new home assignment. There is nothing more important to high performing employer than your success in job responsibilities, cultural adjustment and ROI of their investment to your expatriate status.

Pre-decision tour and community immersion works well when you are one of those successful expats or families that will enjoy the experience and amenities of the new home environment.

Oftentimes, you feel as if you are in solitude when no one can point you to specific cultural needs that will make you feel comfortable.

It’s Daylight Saving Time and Spring Time in California and Other States of USA

Spring Season Enjoy JPG


Use of the natural environment wisely, is an initiative that was adopted in the United States since 1986. This is normally taking place every second Sunday of March, where majority of Americans will synchronize their clocks to turn forward for an hour, and then you will start hearing them saying ‘DST’.   During this period, we are able to save energy while there is still sunlight and the day is longer. There are few US States/territory that do not observe DST (Daylight Saving Time);  such as Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, Virgin Islands and American Samoa.

Spring Time is also in the corner, so everyone gets invigorated with outdoor activities that cannot be done during the previous season. In your neighborhood, you can also see many activities that are taking place. New faces, new things, and events. So take advantage as well with the new season, to learn something different from people you meet in any location or perhaps get a job. Remember, to bring your pocket booklet for writing new information that you never know before. This will remind you later about the new learning.

There are many things to do during Spring Season. Do you have any activities planned so far? We like to hear of your experiences and we will be delighted to share you ours as we move forward to the Season.  Keep going and don’t forget be safe as well.

If you plan to take some learning activities, and have not decided which ones; then we can suggest some lessons for you.

You can contact us directly too at: +1 (650) 241-3207 and discuss how can we help you to solve your difficulties.

Limitation Is Impossible when Communicating in English Well

This is the overview of what you can become and you will experience life without limitations!


First Step: Learn from the basics, and then bring yourself to speed up to maximum level. Like the illustrated ladder of learning for someone who likes to become Communicative Competent.

Learn English JPG

Second Step: Distinguish yourself with the learning of proper and correct vocabulary. Use them efficiently at any location, event, or when you are sharing information with someone regardless of his/her background.

vocabulary development JPG

Third Step: Take time to practice with other people. There are many venues of learning and practicing.  The following is an example of the venue for practice. Some are free and some are paid. You get the value of what you pay for and the experience when it is given free.

Skype conversations_GenTopics JPG

Fourth Step: Understand the implications and sociological meanings of words, phrases, idiomatic expressions, slangs or the so called ‘lingua-franca’ By knowing when and where to say properly will create an impression of credibility among the people you share your ideas.

culture - eye contact JPG

Fifth Step: When unsure, find someone who is experienced to help you. There is no better Coach than someone who is experienced in many areas of concern. Thousands of information is available in the internet, but when you cannot tell the difference of what is correct and which one is wrong, then the best advice is to seek the guidance of a Coach or a Teacher.  Either will tell you which is the best.

Sixth Step: When you begin grasping greater responsibilities, there is an expectation that you will demonstrate competence in leadership and management of an organization that is consist of people, activities, situations, revenues, communication and external factors. Being a communicator, you need the competency as illustrated in the following image. If you don’t have one, hire a Coach who will help you obtain those critical knowledge.

business english_adv level JPG

Seventh Step:  What is your readiness to make a difference?  Exceptional? or just a so so employee?  or just be a Yes, Sir!  You need to be able to answer eloquently those challenging interview questions when you are facing a panel of people. You need to sell your capabilities in order to gain growth and advancement.

Eight Step: Leading is not a joke. It requires strategic mindset to make the balance of the organizational fulcrum. When you aspire to be a good boss or great boss, you must learn unequivocal knowledge and expertise in the areas shown below. In that way, you are indeed someone to be respected within an organization.  If your aspiration is being a mediocre manager – don’t bother to learn these.

Leadership HPO JPG

Ninth Step: Demonstrative communicative competency is a must when you aspire to be standing before an audience.  If you don’t know how? Hire a Coach to teach you the proper techniques and mechanics of doing professionally. Don’t be misled with many online information. Delivery of information like the ones shown below is imperative.

presenting ideas & information JPG

Tenth Step: There is nothing more eloquent to listen, attend someone’s talks than an individual who can illustrate these three important characteristics of a Communicator. Your opportunity is limitless when you have these competency, confidence and ability to articulate. Please note this is not a skill – what is required is a competency. The combination of knowledge, techniques, linguistic proficiency, cultural depth, and business acumen.
