How To Become A Physical Therapist

phyther

Physical therapy is a continually growing field and in my opinion is one of the best jobs to have if you enjoy problem solving, helping people and workdays that never see the same thing twice. Forbes has ranked physical therapy as “one of the ten happiest jobs” and as “one of the top ten jobs in high demand” for several years. The biggest perk of being a physical therapist is the ability to help people feel and move better, by relieving pain, rehabilitating injuries, and improving quality of life. Physical therapists’ vast knowledge of the muscles and joints of the human body and extensive understanding of body mechanics helps to decrease our own risk of injuries during sports and daily activities. The nature of our job also allows us to avoid being sedentary throughout the day and assists in our ability to lead an active and healthy lifestyle.

So now that the benefits of being a physical therapist have been established, how do you go about attaining such a rewarding job? What does it take to become a physical therapist?

Being an accomplished makeup artist is a frontier that only a handful of individuals have conquered. Considering the fact that not everybody is endowed with a creative bent of mind, it is quite reasonable to understand that only a few fortunate souls have made it big in the cosmetics industry. Although a number of premier makeup schools have been established in the recent past, it takes years of painstaking efforts to make a success out of foray into the world of fashion and beauty. If you have a good grasp on the nitty-gritty of the job, you will surely succeed.

Make your Way through Stepping Stones

Many make-up artists seek to take up the work in theatre, television, and modelling agencies. Generally, aspiring makeup artists are enamoured with glitz and glamour integral to the beauty and fashion industry, which prompts them to learn the tricks of the trade and eventually have their foot in the door. You may assume the responsibility to get a model or an actor ready for photo shoot or performance, combined with touching a model up between walks down the

Applicant Vs Application

job_apply_1

Applying for a job shouldn’t be so difficult. As owner of an Executive Search Firm, I read and hear complaints every day about the difficulty of the application process. I hear the same complaints about the hiring process but that will be another article. I encourage HR Departments to realize how many valuable human assets they lose through their online application process.

In the world of online applications, it now takes a minimum of 30 to 45 minutes to complete the basic application — not including additional hours spent on assessment and personality tests. In the world of online applications, isn’t it time to ask “how many talented applicants will never be seen by your Hiring Managers because of your application process?” These are positions your Hiring Manager says he desperately needs to fill, right? The problem from my perspective: Most HR Department are too institutionalized and ‘rote’ in their behaviors to accommodate expedited hiring.

This may be a wake-up call for HR Departments! If your company branding is working; i.e., the applicants are finding your job site, why not make it a pleasure doing

What Are Key Factors That Differentiate Government And Private Jobs?

Some people have a craze for government jobs, while others crave to get a job in the private sector. Those in favor of government jobs consider benefits like job security, while individuals preferring private jobs are with a hunch that they will have a swanky workplace and fascinating salary if they manage to get into the corporate world. What’s the true picture? And what are the key attributes that differentiate these two sectors?

Here are some key factors that differentiate government jobs and private jobs:

Work Load

It is believed that government jobs have less work load than private jobs, and it’s true. In additions, government employees have no target and they’re not forced to work for extra hours. A government employee is never asked to work during a holiday. Isn’t it amazing? But as it is well known that hard work never goes unrewarded, an employer of a private company gives an opportunity to his employee to earn more by assigning him extra duties. Adding to that, a private company’s employee gets an opportunity to nurture his skills under pressure.

Pay and Extra Income

Government employees are always offered attractive packages. Even at entry-level, government departments pay handsome salaries to their employees. When

Search Your Next Job Online and Offline

If you are looking for a job or considering a change of career, you need to find more than one way of finding job in today’s technology driven world that is going through an economic downtrend. You certainly need to maximize your chances of getting job by knowing more about the ways that present day jobseekers are employing for finding jobs. Simply put, you can no more depend upon just continuing with the ‘situation vacant’ ads.

Online Job Search Websites

If you go online, you’ll find a large variety of websites, all designed to help you find job listings. Many of those sites allow you to post your resume free of charge, but there are others which charge you for uploading your resume. The kind of site you may use for getting a job will most likely be decided by the field you are working in, and the level at which you want to work now.

How Are People Looking for Jobs?

It is estimated that, these days, ten percent of people find their next job through the Internet. The reasons for that could be that they scan job search websites of the kind of Craigslist.com and Monster.com, or they found an opening

The Importance of Your Job Searching Attitude

It’s quite rare to come across people who got their first job soon after having applied for it. Perhaps, as a teenager, you had a neighbor in business whom you asked for a job and he hired you, but these days job searches are not so simple or so quick to come by.

Getting hired needs continued efforts. Normally, it requires facing many interviews and getting rejected at times. In the process, you keep learning and are often required to modify and widen your approach many times.

Knowing the kind of job you are looking for and how to effectively search for such jobs helps reducing stress and enables you to continue with renewed efforts and a positive approach. There are many jobs available, and you have many options too. If you continue to be patient and diligent in your efforts, it’s not difficult to get an opportunity for the right job.

It should not be difficult for you to understand that the simpler it is to apply for a job, the more difficult it becomes for you to get noticeable. Look at it this way: you may choose to send hundreds of resumes to online job boards by merely clicking on

Riding the Wave of Market Cycles – How to Rebound From a Layoff In The Construction Industry

It’s a fact of life for an A/E/C professional: the market cycles. One quarter your team is working 60-70 hours a week, hair on fire. The next, everyone is scraping for billable hours. That’s when layoffs happen.

If you’ve been a victim of that ominous visit to the HR director, you might feel as if your career is irreparably damaged. The opposite is true! A layoff may be a catalyst to a great opportunity. Here are some tips to help you successfully rebound from a layoff.

Take a breath – It’s not unusual for senior and executive level professionals to fall victim to layoffs. It’s not necessarily a commentary on your abilities. Don’t panic! Opportunities exist, even in the tightest of markets. At your level, you can often make your own opportunity.

Brush up your resume – Make sure your experience is represented completely and accurately. Highlight the major programs you’ve managed, and the problems you’ve solved. Focus on delivery and budgets met. Get references from owners who are satisfied with your work. Caveat: Don’t embellish! The A/E/C community is small and everyone knows the truth.

Market yourself – You know what projects are coming up in your area of expertise. Meet with
