Resume Tips

Most of the people are busy making careers in their country, but if you are the one, who has decided that abroad is the place for you and you need to do a job in some country abroad, the first step towards getting a job is having an excellent resume.

There are several things to watch out for when writing an international resume. Undoubtedly, it requires highlighting several things in detail, such as skills, language, traveling descriptions, etc. Let us have a look at some of the resume tips that can help you write attractive resumes –

  1. Career Objective – This is the section where you need to convey the recruiter about your area of interest and about what you are looking for in a job. What you write in your resume is simply a follow up of your career objective.
  2. Education- Mentioning your education helps the recruiter to gauge through your knowledge and skill. However, when applying abroad, you are not applying just because there is a vacancy, you are applying because you need a job. In this case,it is advisable to address your knowledge and skills with relevant examples such as projects, internship, study abroad (if any), and the knowledge of a foreign language.
    3. Work Experience – Employers look for people who are self-starters, independent and have managerial skills.You can always emphasize on your work experience and transferable skills. No matter, the experience was small, it always acts as brownie points for you. It could be as small as getting a job at a coffee shop or opening your own company.

4. Professional And Personality Traits – A person when giving you a job abroad              will always look for traits such as ability to adjust to the cultural difference and new              challenges. So, mention such traits, show them that you are like able and potential              employee for the company.

5. Resume Length- Usually, the length of a resume for a recent graduate remains             one page, whereas, a candidate with several years of work experience,                                  achievements and number of employers have more information to share, hence                 the ideal length becomes a two-page resume. In case of an international resume,                  the candidate requires to mention all the above points in detail. Hence, the length                can go up to 3 or 4 pages. However, you need to make sure that  whatever you                   write in it is relevant.

So, go on, write that master piece and get the desired job.


Effects Of Globalization On Local Vendors

Many small, local shops are closing as they are unable to compete with large supermarkets in the area. How does this effect local communities? How can this situation be improved?

With the coming of globalisation and digitalisation, the world has changed the way it did business. Unlike the traditional ways, people have now moved towards the new way of shopping, which include, either online shopping or buying things from malls. This shift, from the local market to the super market, has left the local vendors disappointed.

Globalisation although opened the doors for bigger and better business, it has led to the death of the local business. The major impact was seen in the local garments factories. With the coming of bigger brands to the home, people have stopped buying things made from their own country, leaving local vendors broken.  Secondly, the sudden change has had a sharp impact on poor businessmen. For example, a person having a small shop, who barely met his meets, with the arrival of big players, is left with only one choice and that is to leave the business.

The most effective solution to this problem, could be to pool the resources with other local business of your kind and be big enough. For instance, if there are seven local vegetable sellers, instead of competing separately, they can open one vegetable shop together. This way they can provide better services and higher gains. Secondly, government needs to pull up the socks and make sure every one gets their due benefits.

Overall, although gloablisation brought with its great benefits for customers, it has acted as the devil for the local businessmen and the only way they can survive is by uniting together to be better than the supermarkets.

Craft Beer # Practice Reading

Craft Beer is Booming but Some Brewers Worry About the Future

Looking at the wide array of taps at bars these days, we seem to be in a golden age of beer. The world is awash (containing large numbers or amounts of someone or something)in ales (forming the names of orders of plants), lagers (a kind of effervescent beer which is light in colour and body)and porters (a person employed to carry luggage and other loads, especially in a railway station, airport, hotel, or market), many made by small breweries (a place where beer is made commercially), which are gaining an ever bigger share of the market.

Brooklyn Brewery, a pioneer in the craft beer renaissance (rebirth or revival)along with Boston Beer Company and Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., is doing such brisk (keen or sharp in speech or manner)business that it plans to build a second brewery on Staten Island in 2017. Small companies like Brooklyn sold 11 percent of the beer Americans bought last year, up from just 2.8 percent in 2004, according to the Brewers Association, a trade group.

But even success with consumers isn’t enough. Small brewers have good reason to fear that mergers (any combination of two or more business enterprises into a single enterprise)among the industry’s giants will make it harder for them to sell their products if those companies also come to control big beer distributors around the country.When Brooklyn Brewery began selling its lager in 1988, few people took it seriously. Steve Hindy, one of the founders, said some people even sneered (to smile, laugh, or contort the face in a manner that shows scorn or contempt)that it made no sense to name a beer after a place as gritty as Brooklyn.

“We distributed our own beer for 15 years because none of the big distributors cared about us,” he said recently. Brooklyn and other craft labels caught on as more Americans began experimenting with imported beers from Europe. The growth was helped along by the local and artisanal (pertaining to or noting a high-quality or distinctive product made in small quantities, usually by hand or using traditional methods)food movements. And the growing cachet (the state of being respected or admired)of Brooklyn, the place, has helped with marketing, too; international sales of the company’s beers have boomed, growing about 25 percent a year.

Yet while Brooklyn lager can be found in Stockholm, it can’t be found in many states, like California. That’s partly because beer distribution is mostly through wholesalers, some of whom have been acquired (to come into possession or ownership of)by giant beer corporations like Anheuser-Busch InBev. Reuters reported this month that the Department of Justice and regulators in California were investigating whether InBev, which makes Budweiser and Bud Light, was buying up beer wholesalers to curb sales of craft beers in bars and grocery (a store selling foodstuffs and various household supplies)stores.

“When a big brewery buys an independently-owned distributor they would evaluate each one of those brands and not keep all of them,” said Tom McCormick, executive director of the California Craft Brewers Association and a former beer distributor. “The bulk of their attention would be on their in-house brands.”

That fear has been heightened (make or become more intense)by the announcement (a formal public statement about a fact, occurrence, or intention)earlier this month that InBev, the world’s largest beer company, has proposed buying SABMiller, the second-biggest company, for $104 billion. InBev produces about 45 percent of all the beer sold in the United States while Miller Coors, a joint venture (a risky or daring journey or undertaking)between SABMiller and Molson Coors, sells 26 percent, according to Beer Marketer’s Insight (the capacity to gain an accurate and deep understanding of someone or something).
