5 Things You Need To Include On Your Resume

Are you out for a new job, one that’s bigger and better than the position you used to hold? Maybe you’re looking to grab that promotion within the company you already work for, and know you need an edge over the competition? Maybe you’ve been out of work for a while and need to get back in the game, and you want your CV to be able to minimize the damage that could cause? Whatever your reason for needing to look up what to include on your resume, this is the post for you!

The Right Orientation

If you’re going for a job in a niche sector, or you haven’t updated your resume in a while, not just any old CV will do! You’ve got to make it relevant to the job you’re trying out for.

The Right Words

You’re going to need some keywords in some key places on your resume, that describe what you can do in one word for the job in one word, to make sure any software a hiring manager runs your resume through flags up on their system.

You want even a computer to be sure about you; be sure to look up sites like Hloom to help you out with templating these keywords.

Your Qualifications and Their Certifications

Sure, you’ve got qualifications, and you’ve got the stones to talk about them for hours. But all of this means nothing if you don’t have the certificates you graduated with to back up these stories of yours. So make sure you include information about any certificates you’ve earned within your resume, and have copies of them ready for an employer to look at should they ever ask. If you don’t know where to include these details, look over this advice here.

Your Contact Details

This is a pretty obvious point, but if you don’t include your contact details, and you don’t include them in a clear place, the employer has no way to get ahold of you. And that makes contacting you for an interviewer of job offer impossible, and the person on the other end of the phone is very unlikely to try and look you up before moving onto the next best candidate.

So make sure you’ve got your phone number and email address, as well as your living address, just under your name at the top of your resume.

Try Using Stats

So this one might not be as important as the other points, but if you’ve got statistics to back up your achievement claims, you’re going to have a much better chance of scoring a position within your dream career field than ever before!

And you’re definitely going to stand out from the crowd, as a lot of people aren’t aware they need facts and numbers to help them out with impressing an employer. After all, you do that during the interview, but you need something to tide the interviewer over before you get there!

Always have details like these included!

Unusual Ways To Keep Your Home Warm This Winter

Credit To

With summer over and autumn well and truly here, it won’t be long until we start to see the snow and freezing temperatures of winter that leave us all shivering. When it’s cold outside, all most of us want to do is shut out the world and curl up inside our lovely warm homes. Unfortunately, with energy prices on the rise, it’s getting more and more costly to keep our houses at a comfortable temperature. Rather than pay through the nose, here are a few unusual ways to heat your home.

  1. Let The Light In

On a freezing cold day, instinct tells you to keep your curtains closed to stop heat from escaping. Unfortunately, what you’re actually doing is blocking out the natural warmth of the sun. With that in mind, you should keep your curtains open during the day instead and let the sunlight shine in. That being said, you may want to invest in thicker curtains for when the sun goes down again.

  1. Invest In Ceiling Fans

When the weather is cold, ceiling fans are probably the very last thing on your mind, but they can actually cut down your energy bills and keep your home warmer. For this reason, you may want to head to a site like www.modernfanoutlet.com/best-ceiling-fans/minka-aire-fans.html and grab one of your own. Once it arrives, you should click the reverse switch to create an updraft.

  1. Lay Down A Rug

Hardwood flooring looks absolutely beautiful and can offer feet a pleasant cool feeling during the summer. Unfortunately, during the winter, this feeling goes from pleasant to horrific. Because of this, you should cover up some of your floors with a soft, cuddly rug. This will prevent heat loss in your home, make walking around barefoot more comfortable, and add some style and color.

  1. Switch Up Your Bedding

Your bed always seems like the warmest and coziest place in your home, but that may not necessarily be the case. Depending on the bedding you choose, your bed might actually be a lot colder than it should. Thankfully, you can make the space a lot warmer with some better sheet choices. Instead of cotton, consider flannel options, like these at www.thespruce.com.

  1. Foil Behind Your Radiators

The whole point of your radiators is to heat the rooms in your home, and not the house itself. Unfortunately, yours may not be doing a very good job of this, by allowing heat to escape into the walls. To prevent this, you should put some tin or aluminum foil on the wall behind each of your radiators. This will reflect heat back into the room, keeping your home a lot warmer.

  1. Bubble Wrap It Up

Without double glazing, your windows can waste a significant amount of heat throughout winter. Thankfully, there is a remedy for this. Although it isn’t particularly attractive, placing bubble wrap over all of your windows will create a similar effect to the double glazing your home is lacking. This will insulate your home, prevent heat from escaping, and keep you warm.

Keeping yourself warm throughout winter can get expensive, but with these unusual methods, you should be able to save some money.

Buying a Used Car? Here’s How to Make It Truly Yours

If you decided to buy a used car, you will need to make sure that you are getting the best deal possible. It will be hard to tick all the boxes if you are on a limited budget, therefore you might decide to use your car as a blank canvas and customize it to your individual needs. This way, you will be able to enjoy the added comfort and performance features, without having to pay the high price for the extras. Below you will find a few things you can add to your used car to make it suit your needs.

Add Comfort Features

If you would like to make your old car more comfortable, you will be able to do this according to your budget. First of all, if you have the connections and the budget, you can improve the suspension to get a more comfortable ride. Second, you can add massage chairs, or – if you can afford to – change the driver’s seat to a more comfortable one. You can now add keyless entry to any car, but the cost will vary from one make and model to the next.

Aftermarket Exterior Features

If you don’t want to blend in and would like to turn heads when driving down the road, there are also some exterior features, such as the LDV T60 aftermarket accessories that will make your vehicle stand out. Change the lights to LED, add alloy wheels, or upgrade to a more stylish and efficient front grille. If you have the money, you can also get a few sport accessories that will make your vehicle a pleasure to drive.

Stickers

Of course, you can add stickers as well, and this upgrade will only cost you a couple of dollars. There are funny ones, personalized ones, and those that relate to your car make and values. If you find it hard to spot your car in a busy parking lot, this can be a good way of making it easier to notice.

Vinyl Wrapping

When you buy a used car, it might not be economical to get it resprayed, as this procedure might cost as much as the vehicle itself. However, you can get it into a professional vinyl wrapping service where you can choose the color and the area you would like to cover. You might even use vinyl wrapping to advertise your business or other people’s for money.

Custom Number Plates

You might also invest in a custom number plate. If you are happy with how the car looks when you drive away in it, you just need to add your own stamp. You can buy custom number plates online or at dealerships that will make your vehicle feel like it is yours. Use your initials, your nickname, or your date of birth, and you will never miss your car in a supermarket’s car park again.

Buying a used car doesn’t mean that you have to accept the taste of the previous owner. Just like a home, you can customize the car to make it feel the right fit for your needs and personality.
