Building your personal brand to get a job

Written by Emma Burbidge Posted in Interviews, Careers

You see them in adverts and find them at the supermarkets and on our high streets. Brands are really popular and you buy them because they are well known and they grab your attention.

The same applies to people in their job search. When job hunting it is important to show the best possible version of yourself, and brand yourself successfully in order to maximise your chances of getting a job. This means demonstrating to an employer that you are hard-working, keen to learn new things and very enthusiastic about the role you are applying for.

Say no to smoking

Written by Carl Malkin Posted in Alcohol and drug addiction

Say no to smoking

Ever had someone say to you that they are trying to quit smoking or maybe you have done it yourself. People always comment and say well done you can do it. For people who have never smoked or been to addicted to smoking it seems to easy to just say “you can do it” but for you it can be a big deal. What you need to remember is that 1 sixth of the UK population smoke so there are many people who just don’t understand the addictions of smoking cigarettes. People who do smoke will have heard the comments “you know that stuff will kill you” or “when are you going to quit that dirty habit” So when you do decide you are going to try and quit you would like a bit of credit and help in doing so rather than just a comment or nod of the head.

Overcoming low self-esteem (Confidence building)

Written by Paula Charalambous Posted in Beat bullying

In my experience I would say low self-esteem is the number one factor preventing people of all ages from moving forward in work, education and most of everything we face in our daily life!

Low self esteem mostly stems from school, and bullying seems to be the word I hear again and again and again.This ugly word causes more problems in later life than most!
