Benefits of a Professional Resume

Come January, 2010…
Come January, 2010…and companies are gearing up for a hiring fever. I’m sure the smart ones among us are revisiting job portals in lunch breaks already…
Here is the best time to avoid a few mistakes we made in past job hunts. Have you wondered why most high paying companies we apply for have never responded? This is why:
  • Too many resumes flood the recruiter’s inbox. Result: Your resume gets an unfair 30 seconds only, to attract the recruiter’s attention. High chances of your resume getting filtered out, exist.
  • Your resume may lack focus
  • Is your resume duties-driven instead of accomplishments-driven?
  • Incorrect ordering of items can disinterest the recruiter
  • Subconsciously, we highlight our skills the way we want the recruiter to see, not the way the recruiter wants it to be!
  • For many companies that use data mining HR software, a resume that lacks specific keywords may not be noticed among thousands of other similar resumes! Yes it’s unfair.

These are just few of the goof-ups we make, in an uninformed, unintended hurry. What can you do to break the wall between you and that desirable job opening you are eyeing? Get in touch and Let the Experts Do what they do best...creating the unmatched resume no interviewer can overlook.

"Tresspassers will be recruited"

"Tresspassers will be recruited"

The IT-Dream isn't Infosys or Wipro, anymore. The IT-Dream is a weekend.

Egads! its 5:33 a.m....I better get my nap...its a Saturday! :-)

Want to see what happens to the herd of evolved IT-industry professionals when they are un-caged after a long week of "job-satisfaction"?
  • Hit the Brigade Road: Blank, confused faces...I call them Zombie Stares...
  • Hit the Forum Mall: holding hands with their GF-BF/GF-GF/BF-BF and yet staring at the hot babe/guy passing i always say, "the joy in a relationship is either in getting into one, or getting out of one...not in the relationship for most young dudes and duddete's (LOL) today"
  • Hit the pubs and disco's: Young ambitious IT pro's (familiarising to "social" drinking culture) acting "faithful" to their managers (we all know, recession fading away, and January around the corner, payrise is just a month of "hard work" away).....or just a bunch of young "cool" dudes and dudette's who haven't experienced the high of Sudarshan Kriya yet, and want to drink bottoms-up, get sloshed, do naughty things at night and wake up with a hangover on Sunday
  • Knock at appartments in Koramangla/BTM/Marathalli/ITPL, at noon time: A sleepy-eyed young IT professional whom you just rudely awoke from his weekly slumber, or a dripping-wet Mamma's boy who knows the benefits of waking up early on Saturday and doing his week-long dirty laundry (mostly in Bangalore, the BairraAmma's are on leave on Saturdays :-))
  • Don't hit the Barista's or Cafe Coffee Day's: You'll only find first-dates, about-to-break-up-couples, school reunions, or business plans :-)

This is not a joke, but a reality check for those who:
  • are not yet disillusioned about the misnomer "JOB-SATISFACTION"
  • haven't learnt to meditate and need Axe Deo Sprays and Haute Couture to cover up years of SUBTLE accumulated emotional garbage, intellectual saturation and physical stress (doesn't show until you ae 30)
  • still have those American dreams

See you until my next post...Love Bow Wow

Business Week Best Global Brands

Business Week

Best Global Brands

58 Colgate

$5,633 million

2005 Rank/Value
60 / $5,186 million

9% change from 2005

Based in U.S. Well into a four-year restructuring, Colgate now has something to smile about with new launches such as Luminous toothpaste finding strong demand.

I wonder if Business Week will stop associating the word "BEST" with "HIGHEST EARNING" when benchmarking organizations... Simply rephrasing my words, I'd request them to read my previous post on Colgate.

Shahrukh Khan endorses Colgate. Does he know, Colgate is a toxic chemical cocktail

What can I say? :-) :-)

This one's my favorite :-D

I'll keep most of the text of this post pale yellow in heart-felt condolence for all the educated, sleeping consumers who "consume" Colgate everyday!

SRK...King Khan...Baadshah of Bollywood...what not? certainly...

A compelling actor, a confident man, who stepped into filmdom with Deewana (1992), and stole millions of hearts with hits like
...Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Dil Toh Pagal Hai, Mohabbatein, Chak De India (my personal favorite), Om Shanti Om, Ra Ne Banadi Jodi, Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, Kal Ho Na Ho, Veer Zara, and Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna
...has garnered hardcore fans from Pakistan and Japan!

I'll tell you why I'm thankful that my date of birth is the only thing Shahrukh and I have in on....

Some people with chain smoking habits (You know who), know that they are role models for thousands, and yet sometimes they overlook the impact that every slight gesture of theirs can have on the society... guess is, such celebrities may not have learnt the Sudarshan Kriya Yoga or PERHAPS never even experienced the enhanced awareness that meditation and a holistic DIET (excluding poultry meat pumped wth antibiotics, or eggs containing hormones) can such cases such celebrities consider stress (resulting from their hectic work, super-strenous workouts, the blinding celebrity glitter) as something natural to carry inside their systems...hence the lack of awareness....and they do not mind promoting products without doing their own RESEARCH...

(oh, btw, SRK earns 8 to 9 crores from his brand endorsements.)

What are the ingredients in Colgate?

Water, hydrated silica, glycerin, SORBITOL, PVM/MA copolymer, SODIUM LAURYL SULPHATE, cellouse gum, and flavor, and some other trace chemicals. And of course SODIUM FLUORIDE and Triclosan for whitening.

"Overseas researchers have found Colgate toothpaste contains ingredients that may cause cancer."
Why did I panic when discovered this:
  • I had just finished brushing my teeth with Colgate toothpaste (it was in the morning newspaper).
  • I have been using Colgate since many years.
My first reaction was to dispose the Colgate toothpaste in my bathroom.Of course I did so...
As I wondered:
  • Where have the quality control authorities gone?
  • How come harmful products are on the shelves of supermarkets for so long?
After all, the quality control authorities are "supposed to be" responsible for the safety and health of consumers, isn't it?
But by now, my insecurity had turned to proactive anger. A few days down the line, here I am, sharing some interesting facts with you...who knows I may be instrumental in a positive change in your lifestyle...we never know :-)

Artificial sweetener- also contained in chewing gums, and calorie-conscious sweets
  • causes dramatic weight loss with prolonged or excess ingestion
  • causes gastro-intestinal problems like weight loss, or abdominal pain
(Aah, this is my favorite compound..technically termed as 'surfactant', an 'emulsifier', and a 'denaturant')
Also contained in:
- Most shampoos and conditioners (even in the ones labelled 'herbal')
- bath and shower crèmes and gels
- liquid hand soap
- moisturizers
- bubble-bath

Used as a foamer and a detergent in toothpastes, and preferred by manufacturers because it is cheap, SLS is used
  • to clean oil spillage from petrol forecourts....means it is very effective (sarcastic)
  • It is well KNOWN to be a harmful skin irritant (remember why they say 'flush your eyes with plenty of water' if you get shampoo in them)
  • Toxic to the liver and kidneys
  • Toxic to aquatic animals/fish (remember tons of this stuff washes-off down our drains!!)
  • On the NIH hazards list
  • Known to trigger eczema and skin problems
  • And this is my favorite: SLS is...Known to cause mouth ulcers!!!
Of late,
Have you noticed the increasing trend of sensitive teeth? Don't be surprised.
Do you still want to use Colgate?

Used as Rat Poison...need I say more?

I hope SRK is reading this (for his own health)...

what's the irony of it...most celebs do not even use the products they endorse...

When will it be 2012 for the media industry?
When SRK endorses the 'Jaago Grahak Jaago' (wake up consumer wake up) campaign on television! (hahaha)


Lately two thoughts have been competing in my mind, for first appearance on my blog is the Monsanto Company...another is celebs endorsing ads....

Its nearly 3 am in the morning, and my near-Zen state of mind ;-) suggests I should give full honor and dedicate more hours of research to Monsanto (to do justice to the years of their hard work in mindless animal slaughter, federal manipulation, unethical business practices, (oh...i could go on and on with such lovely adjectives)), before I write upon it...

as of now, it'll be celebrity stories series... :-)

BUT WAIT! just a small piece of general knowledge here...

Is milk safe from cows that have received hormones like RBST?

NO! (The answer couldn't be louder than this)

(R)BST ([Recombinant] Bovine somatotropin) is a bovine growth hormones in cattle..way back in 1985, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) had claimed that RBST is harmless to humans (what were they thinking??)

With the political manipulation that Monsanto is infamous for...Monsanto has geneticaly re-engineered RBST to abnormally boost milk production in cows to as much as 15 per cent , labelled it as POSILAC (or BGH, rBGH, BST and rBST) and managed to pass it into mainstream usage through FDA in 1993. Today, youngsters in the US are experiencing catastrophic levels and varieties of diseases..ranging from:
  • puberty in children as young as 10 years of age....they are confused, scared and do not know how to deal with such abnormal bodily changes at such a young age!
  • girls as young as 11, experiencing periods!
  • moreover, injection of estrogen (female hormones) in cows for commercial gains, are causing breast cancer in women and testicular cancer in men

    For the record, this is the rising trend among Indian children today since a decade....did you know India is a lucrative testing ground for Genetically Modified food, or GMO, for such organizations like Nestle and Monsanto...

    Do we still want to go the US way?
    ...Oh btw, today, one in every three children in the US suffer from Type-2 Diabetes. And among the minorities, the ratio is 1:2.

    ....are you still waking up every morning from Monday to Sunday, in the comfort of the packaged
    (homogenized/pasteurized) milk? or "are you asleep"? the advertisements of Maggi noodles, promoting Maggi stories make you feel good? or do you take the initiative to GOOGLE out on the effects of MSG, or Mono sodium Glutamate in Maggi, to your health...."YOUR HEALTH"?

    ...does one bar of Nestle's Kit Kat make you reach out for another bar? you feel Cerelac is a great food for babies?

    ...chances are, if you are educated and able to read this post to this point, you will certainly do our own research, and tell me what you found.

    Lots of love, until then.

    The Purpose of Education

    Faith and alertness appear to be completely opposite in nature. When you are alert, usually there is no faith and you feel restless and insecure.
    When there is faith the mind is secure and rested and you are not alert.

    There are three types of faith:

    Tamasic faith which is because of dullness. Like when you do not want to take responsibility or action and you say, "Oh it doesn’t matter, anyway God will take care of all these things!" (laughter)

    Rajasic faith which is brought on by intense compulsion of desires and ambition. The ambition keeps the faith alive.

    Satvic faith is innocent and is born out of fullness of consciousness. Faith and alertness, though apparently opposite in nature, are actually complementary to each other.

    In the absence of faith there can be no growth, and without alertness there can be no correct understanding. Faith can make you complacent. Alertness makes you tense. If there is no faith, there is fear. And when there is no alertness one cannot perceive or express properly. A combination of both is essential.

    In Gyana (state of wisdom) there is alertness without tension and faith without complacency. The purpose of education should be to remove the element of dullness from faith and the element of fear from alertness. This is a unique and rare combination. If you have faith and alertness at the same time, then you will become a true Gyani (the Wise One)! - Sri Sri
