In advance, you will be able to find out whether the company’s norms are really accommodative. Look into the company’s future goals and plans then weigh and try to see if you can be a good long-term investment.

Self-preparation before joining a driving course

good 123

The skill for driving is vital for urban life. Even if you have not bought a car, but you are planning to, learning to drive earlier will do you more good. Being able to drive also can support your career since you will get more mobile and helpful.

Self-taught or joining a course?

Training123This common question when faced with an option whether to learn driving from close-relative, friends, or from a driving course; one thing is for sure, you will get driving certification from a driving course. Besides, the knowledge taught in the course is technical and methodical. Also, you prevent your friend’s car, or your relative’s, from having an unnecessary accident.

But it does not mean you have to rely on your instructor to learn everything. The basics like shifting gears, turning on the lamps, sign lamps, wiper, and maintaining the power of the battery, all you can learn by yourself.

The course will give you detailed knowledge of the traffic rules and symbols. This advantage is what makes learning by yourself very different from joining a course.

Screening for a good driving course

assessing333Some driving course provides free trial promo. Try to use it, and see if the instructor is helpful and makes you feel safe and comfortable or not. For example, driving lessons in Glasgow prioritize the safety of their potential students by offering insurance program if the student wants to drive his/her car during the practice. The programs they are selling are also authentic, like including ‘the attitude’ when encountering hazardous area, and the basic rules when driving on the highway.

Another thing to check during the trial is that if the instructor is confident enough when telling you what are your activities once you join with course. Course with a passive driving instructor is better to avoid.

Finding out how credible the program’s certificate is

Look for a course of which the certificate can at least make their students easier to get a driver-related part-time job. Try to get in touch with the alumni of the course. Even if that job is not your dream job, but boasting a little of your success in acquiring a new skill, driving, at your office can bring attention from the superiors.

Good driving courses commonly affiliate with an insurance company, and whoever the holder of the certificate is, he/she can get a leniency for paying the premium. This is one example, but driving courses near your have might have things that you normally overlook.…

How to prepare for a job interview

gffcvhgchgcghcgh

Many people are jobless nowadays and finding a job is be the best thing that can happen to them. Currently a lot of individuals are looking for jobs in the newspapers and on the internet. They constantly send their curriculum vitae with the hope of securing a chance to work with an organization they desire. We have seen a lot of people turn up for an interview whenever a vacancy is advertised, but only a few people qualify for the job. If you send your resume and you get to be invited for an interview what are you supposed to do?  You need to know more about the company so that you can increase your chances of passing the interview. Even if it involves going to a third party, you should do so to get the job. Below are some tips on how to prepare for a job interview:

Do enough research

rytcvghcvghchgc

Since you are going for an interview, you should ensure that you have done enough research on the company. Nowadays most companies have social media pages where they have included a brief history of the company i.e what they do, the various departments they have, the services they offer, their mission, their promotions, and their culture. Apart from that, they may have a website where they have the same information too. It is good that you go through such information because you may be asked about it in your interview.

 

Study your resume

You should ensure that you know your resume inside-out. Carefully go through it and ensure that even if you are asked something about it, you will be able to answer without any hardship. It is not good for you to keep on referring to your resume when you are asked a question. The habit shows that the resume might be fake or the information therein is copied and not true. In fact, ensure that you write the resume yourself so that you know exactly what is in it.

Dress properly

When you are going for an interview, you are not going to a club or an outing. Ensure that you dress appropriately. In fact, before the day comes ensure that you go and buy the clothes that you will need for that day. Be neat and do not wear wrinkled clothes. It is good for you to know the type of company you are dealing with. If you are going to an interview in a bank, do not go there in sandals. You should put on official clothes like a suit.

Observe time

dgcgcvghchgcvhggSurely do not mess yourself by coming late to the interview. If it is at 8:00 am, then ensure that you get to there by 7:30 am. This will give you enough time to relax and be comfortable before the interview begins. If you usually experience a lot of traffic in your area of residence, you need to wake up early and leave for the interview so as to make it on time.…

How to study for an examination

dgcgfcfgcfgcgfcgf

If there is anything that scares most students is taking an examination. A lot of students fail to attend most of their lectures, and if they do so, they do not pay attention. Some take notes, but they never get to study them. They do not read at all. Most students use their time in hanging out with their friends and other leisure activities. To most students, the university is a moment of fun, and it is only a few who take their time to read. This way when the exams start, then everyone gets busy with their studies. Most students begin to apply rote learning also known as cramming. This is the worst method of reading because come the next day you are likely to forget some of the things you crammed. It is also not a good method because you cannot apply it in calculations. You have to understand the concepts and know where they are used. Below are some of the tips on how to study for an examination:

Start preparing early

dgfcgfcgfcgfcgf

When you are preparing for your exam, it is good to ensure that you start as early as possible. When you prepare early, you give yourself a chance to understand the concepts and their application as early as possible. This is good because when the exam period approaches you will have less stress going through your notes. When you start your revision early, you get plenty of time to prepare for the exam.

 

Study regularly

It is good to familiarize yourself with the concepts. Do not look at your notes just once and lie to yourself that you are comfortable. When you revise regularly, you are likely to remember everything come the exam period. When you plan to have your studies three hours a day, you get the chance to do other activities, and you also get to improve your concentration ability.

Study for the exam

It does not mean that every time you study you are preparing for the exam. You can read to get an idea of what the course is all about. Studying for exams involves finding a place that is quiet, and also eliminating distractions like your phone, radio or laptop. You can even visit the library and look at the past papers to know how the exams are set and what to expect in the future.

Have enough sleep

Some people only sleep for a few hours during the exam period. This is not healthy at all. In fact, ensure that you rest for only eight hours so that you retain all that you have read. Reduce the rate at which you use your phone and computer during the exam period so that you can concentrate on the tests. Sleep early to prevent yourself from dozing off in the exam.

Relax

gfdgcghfgchgcggBefore you go to the exam room ensure that you are relaxed. When you panic you might misinterpret the exam questions or might forget what you have been revising and so it is good to know that the exam is just a normal process.…

Comment implanter une culture de l’Intelligence Economique ?

 

Un de mes billets a récemment été publié sur le blog IE des Echos.

J’y traite de la manière d’implanter une culture d’IE en entreprise.

En voici le début …

————-

Les récentes affaires qui ont présenté l’intelligence économique sous un jour négatif, rendent encore plus difficile l’implantation d’une dynamique d’IE dans une entreprise. Comment un chef d’entreprise convaincu du bienfait de l’IE peut-il la promouvoir sans éveiller les interrogations d’au moins une partie de ses salariés ?

Premier élément de réponse, il n’est pas nécessaire d’utiliser l’expression « intelligence économique » pour faire de « l’intelligence économique ». Cette discipline est transverse, et l’on peut inciter tous collaborateurs à améliorer la collecte, l’analyse, la diffusion, la sécurisation et la capitalisation des informations sans utiliser de « mots qui fâchent ».

Second élément de réponse : Il existe autant de méthodes pour mettre en place une culture IE, qu’il existe d’entreprises. Tout est affaire d’adaptation à la structure et à la culture de l’entreprise. Voici quelques exemples :

– Certaines entreprises pourront proposer des remerciements plus ou moins honorifiques pour les informations de valeurs qui seront remontées par des collaborateurs. D’autres vont institutionnaliser des remontées d’information hebdomadaire. Par exemple, en obligeant les cadres le vendredi après midi à remonter à leur N+1 les faits marquants de la semaine. Ces derniers vont faire de même à l’échelon supérieur et ainsi de suite jusqu’au plus haut niveau.

– Favoriser l’analyse n’est pas aisé. La mise en place sur l’intranet d’espaces collaboratifs peut y aider. Surtout si cela s’accompagne de la création de communautés de pratique, par métier, par fonction ou par projet.

– Dans le domaine de la sécurisation, un ancien directeur général d’une grande société raconte l’anecdote suivante : quelques-uns de ses directeurs avaient la fâcheuse manie de laisser traîner des dossiers sur leur bureau. Il a ramassé un soir tout ce qu’il a trouvé ! Puis il a attendu les réactions ! Certains sont venus signaler le « vol », d’autres pas … On imagine la suite !
