How can I prepare my English for a banking exam?9Good Question>>>This question is good bcz there is a lot of peoples who have suffer from this problem. In bank exams the cut off of English is quite low, yet almost 60% people failed here in English section only, why?, this is a big problem but luckily I have a solution for this problem which break hurdles of your path easily with minimal efforts. So, first take a look of the whole syllabus of English which is asked in banks exams>>>RC, Spot the Error, Fillers, Cloze test, Sentence Arrangement.This is short look of the pattern of asking questions in Bank’s papers. I wood tell you here what should you do to get through this. Here are some important things which you should do for boosting your numbers in English section especially.Problems :1.Grammar : You read this or not, it doesn’t matter in bank exams. Anyone who has a little bit of understanding of english only as a language, can do its questions when it comes in D-day, but the only point is he/she had a general Idea about solving question which varied from person to person. If you’re the aspirant of SSC then you have to know about grammar little bit more but if you’re a aspirant of banking exams then it doesn’t matter more. Anyway, if someone amongst you want to read Grammar then don’t use too many books for Grammar, if you want you can use this book SHINE BOOK but even if you not take this then also its not harm you bcz this book contained some rarest SSC level grammar rules which can also helpful for you in your understanding of the subject a bit more.2. Word Power : It is the key for your success, How?, I would tell you here. Fillers, Cloze test will create almost 99% questions based on word power bcz if you know the importance of any word as well as their meanings then you can use to it in fillers and Cloze test. Honestly 100% questions you can do it only through this even if 40 % question RC will be based on word power. How you built it, I would tell you later.3. 60% RC : It will covered from your understanding. Suppose anyone who had a sufficient knowledge of English can read a passage and knew easily about central Idea which is only 10% of RC but what about the other 50%. Therefore you have to understand this from your own. So, How would you acheive it, I would tell you later.4. ABCDE : You’ve a question in front of you which carry 5 Questions and the funny part is if you solved it only once then you can score 5 marks easily may be in 2 minutes but there are two main problems which hardly thinks by anyone, which is Understanding and Reading speed. If you reading with speed, you hardly understand the topic and vice versa.Solution :Read a English newspaper daily. This is the panacea for you, How?, I would tell you here and all we talked about the role of Newspaper in many areas in English sections.If you read a newspaper your reading speed will grow. After reading it regularly your understanding power will grow. If you found some words new for you and if you google it then your word power also grow. In a nutshell, your overall knowledge will grow. Now the question is how someone read a newspaper who has never read it before for a competitive purpose, Don’t worry I would tell also this to you here.Whenever you reading a newspaper, first read the content of any article and then translare it in your own language as it is. For Example : If you belong to Orissa then first read it in English and then translate it in Odia, similarly, hindi, urdu or any other language you prefer. don’t think about the time, select only one article and finish it patiently by taking time. Read only one paragraph in a day but finsh it like that if someone ask anything about you from that article may be in moulded form, you can answered about it effectively, bcz if you read like that you can solve Rc, Cloze test, Filler & sentence arrangement in 100% while in the case of spot error only 60% in which you can understand the error through your understanding part.Smart study : The articles or pages you choose from a newspaper choose it by filtering other news other than Financial awareness or business part because the article or topic you are reading may be comes in your mains.If you do this whatever I would tell you here then you can first got improvement in yourself about reading things as well as word power. By this you can start to linking words in sentences which will help you in spot errors and filler sections and after linking sentences you can actually improve your sentence arrangement areas. If you can understand it whatever I say here and you used to it the I bet you, your english will be improved after giving some if your time.Tips 1. Don’t afraid of English, treat it just like anyother language.Tips 2. Attempt all questions of English in prelims as well as mains bcz here you easily score more with a good knowledge of wordpower.If you still wants to clear some queries then ask it on my fb or insta profile. I’ll promise you to answered your querry within first 24 hours, I have already solved 100+ people queries related to various competitive exams like UPSC/SSC & of courses of Bank exams as well through fb & instagram, whenever they ask.Best of luck…!!!
What course of action do I take to become a copywriter?So you wanna learn how to become a copywriter my junior friend? Well it’s very possible. In fact, there’s really no formal education you need. Some of the top-paid copywriters in the world never went to college or took a writing class!No education!No formal training!!Make lots of money!!!…..now before you start getting crazy, let me step you back into the reality of becoming a copywriter:1.) What Is Copywriting?Copywriting is essentially moving words around to sell better.Let’s say I work for a company that has a webpage which gets 1 out of 500 visitors to buy something.If I was a copywriter, I would figure out how to make 1 out of 100 of those people buy. This means 5x more sales from the SAME webpage!A good copywriter will understand how to do this with their words, and also how to re-arrange pictures and buttons to get more sales.A good copywriter is not just a writer. They are a keen studier of the human psychology behind purchase decisions!2.) Understand why people hire copywriters:Think of the huge amount of content a lot of companies have to put out.A single insurance company will have to put out all this stuff:Ads on TVAds on the internetAds on radioBrochures for B2C salesBrochures for B2B salesBrochures for every different productForms to fill outForms to fill out for various different product linesGoogle adsFacebook adsUpdate their TwitterUpdate their Facebook pageMake content for their websiteMake the content for their website about each different productMake sure their content is convertingMake sure customers understand how to signupSend customers packets explaining their policyHave scripts for their sales people to followHave scripts for their customer support people to followWrite press releasesThe list goes on and on and on and on…Allllll of these things need to get written by or looked over by a copywriter. And that’s just a single example! Some companies will rely heavily on copywriters. Some companies (like 37Signals) require ALL members of the team to be great writers before they ever start.So people will pay a copywriter good money to handle these things for them. But YOU my young friend, need to understand that to get that money, you need to keep relationships within those companies that need those services.How to Get Clients As a Freelance Copywriter:This is by far the biggest question I get. And people seem to forget one thing:Establishing yourself as a freelance copywriter is the same as building a business from the ground up.You’ve got to put in LOTS of effort in the beginning, show talent, and not expect immediate riches. There’s no free lunches here boys and girls.A lot of people get entranced by the prospect of working from their laptop from anywhere in the world as copywriter. In fact people go nuts when I post pictures like this from various locations!Since all my copywriting business is conducted from a laptop, I can take off and go work from the beach.Or if I wanted to drum up an extra $10,000 really quick …..I can just devote some of my hours to copywriting gigs.But these luxuries are the result of hard work, actual results, and existing exposure.This won’t happen overnight for most copywriters. And probably NEVER will for a lot of them. However I’ll share some of the ways I’ve personally seen people get amazing (and high paid) copywriting gigs:METHOD #1.) Becoming popular on the web as a copywriter.If you become known as a famous copywriting figure, you will build instant credibility.And if you have high credibility, you can ask for more money.So how did I build credibility for my copywriting career?Building Copywriting Credibility Step 1.) Practicing what you psignNow:I originally ran a couple of businesses starting from high school, and I first applied some copywriting techniques to the email list I had.METHOD #2.) Becoming popular in a specific nicheSo a lot of lower-end copywriters will insist “I can write everything!” But in reality they should niche down when they start. For example, if you worked for a big health company and did a lot of writing for them, you should call yourself a copywriter that specializes in the health space.This will make it easier to gain credibility in a specific area.You probably wouldn’t super-trust the guy who mows your lawn for financial advice…..however you REALLY might take his advice on how to hedge bushes and get a clean line on the edge of a lawn.He has very specific advice, and lots of experience practicing what he’s talking about.Instead of being “just a copywriter” ….it would be better if you were “A female copywriter who specializes in talking to 1st time expecting mothers.”It would be best to hang out and network in places where people are selling stuff to 1st time expectant mothers. If someone need a copywriter, and you have experience in EXACTLY their niche…..guess who has a high chance of getting the gig??My personal niche started out with smaller companies and daily deals. Then moved into medium sized businesses.However if someone approached me to write for 1st time expectant mothers, I could DO It……but I don’t have experience and can’t exactly relate to the struggles of that demographic. So I try to stick to my area of expertise so I can deliver the maximum results.METHOD #3.) Becoming popular for big companiesTHIS method can apply to certain people, and be quite lucrative.Let’s say you worked for a big company in the marketing department and you were exposed to how a big marketing department tests & releases products.If you were to build a nice little network in the same industry, and then become a consultant with a VERY SPECIFIC expertise, then you get some other big companies to fork over A LOT of money.Smaller freelance gigs can pay a few hundred dollars. But a huge corporation who is a doing an 8+ month rollout of $100,000,000+ product will pay you some phat-ass cash to ensure they do it right.Now I personally probably couldn’t get one of these gigs because I’ve never worked inside a huge company. That means I lose major credibility because I’ve never walked the walk.But if you do have some very niche experience within a big corporation and had a few big wins, you might be able to become a very highly-sought-after consultant.The cool part is you only need a few good contacts for this.I know someone who wrote an oil-management program in the 70’s that’s still used today. Till this day he gets sweet-ass gigs from multiple companies JUST to be around if anyone needs help implementing it.Since the projects he consults for are $2billion+ …..the companies don’t mind shelling out major cash just to keep him around.Boring? Yes.Sweet cash flow? Yes.This is one of the benefits of working with a big company:You know how to implement projects within a large company. That is actually a rare skill.METHOD #4.) Get small-time gigs.Now there are some other ways to get copywriting gigs, but I’ve never seen anyone who consistently made big money doing these things alone, so I’ll just list them quickly:Posting on Fiverr for copywriting gigs.You’ll definitely get some leads this way, but your clients will usually be bargain-hunters and not HUGE jobs.Posting on Craigslist as a copywriter for hire. This will generally result in corporate copywriter jobs that are relatively low-paying ($35,000 – $45,000).Posting on UpWork as a copywriter for hire. This will get you small to medium gigs. It’s not my favorite wayMETHOD #5.) Post in Facebook Groups where people can use copywriting services.I think this one is the easiest. Just go to groups like The Cult of Copy Job Board that you are offering your services for a one-time low price of $xxxxx and that you’re for hire.A lot of times people will bite.People also constantly post gigs there such as:Not all the gigs will be good, but some will.In the beginning you will have to scrape together gigs, but if you start putting all your work inside a simple portfolio, you can gain some steam. Which brings me to :Make a Simple Copywriting Portfolio!Ok, listen to me carefully young buck:You DO NOT NEED a fancy website. In fact, I’ve never never ever seen someone get a copywriting gig directly from their portfolio. EVER!!The reason is: people are looking to hire you based on your skills at copywriting. Not “how fancy your website looks.” This is a common mistake. Look how crappy my copywriting consults page is. That page generates huge returns even though it sucks super bad. The desire to buy is created from previous exposure to me, NOT the way the page looks.People will spend months and lots of money and time on a fancy website, only to realize NO ONE IS COMING TO IT. The only people going there are the people they meet directly and tell to go there.The best type of copywriting portfolio is a simple page with the following elements:Your name.Your expertise (Social Media? Landing Pages? A/B Testing?).A few examples of your work.How they can book a session with you.I know it sounds counterintuitive, but some of the best copywriting pages I’ve EVER SEEN are super simple one’s like this:See how simple that is?It also only leaves them ONE option of what to do next, and that’s to book a session with you.These sessions should generally be a minimum of $100.If a client is not willing to pay at least $100 for a consultation session where you point out everything wrong with their page, they are NOT going to buy anyways.My minimum consultation session is $597 now. And I’ve learned the hard way that if people are not willing to pay it, they are not going to be willing to pay you more (or they just simply can’t afford it).Oddly enough, the more I charge for each hour session, the more respect and compliance I get from the client! They want to make SURE they get their money out of that session , so they ensure they show up on time and show up prepared.I would personally avoid doing free sessions. Because what generally happens is:1.) Everyone gets excited about working together.2.) You setup a meeting with this “prospective client”.3.) You prepare for the meeting and draw up a proposal.4.) You talk with the client and tell them what you’re going to do for them.5.) They tell you “let’s talk again soon after I run this by my boss.”6.) You never talk again…..and all that time was wasted.7.) You become sad and poor :-(To get people taking you seriously, you need to charge them for your time. If they decide to go for a full contract with you, then you can comp them the hour long session. However if they don’t go with you, at least you still get paid.Charging people for your time is a sure-fire way to get them to value your services.Every single successful freelance copywriter I know ALWAYS charges for their time.Some Copywriting Books for you to read:I’ve read a helluva lot of copywriting books, and these are the one’s I recommend you read to get off to a great start:BOOK 1.) Read The Gary Halbert Letters (Free) Start by reading “The Boron Letters”. Make sure you print each chapter out for maximum effect!Ch 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25You can also buy The Boron Letters directly from Amazon.BOOK 2.) If you want a book that sits on your desk and can re-cap this kourse quickly, then grab my book called “This Book Will Teach You How To Write Better” from Amazon.BOOK 3.) Read Advertising Secrets of the Written Word by Joseph Sugarman. This book usually costs in the $30 range, but is one of my go-to books for ideas on how to position copy. Almost every successful kopywriter will know this book.BOOK 4.) Also, check out Ogilvy on Advertising by David Ogilvy (great for traditional advertising advice as well)Your Next Steps To Becoming A Copywriter:I showed above in this post some good things to do first:Read the copywriting books I recommended above.Making a simple copywriting portfolio.Put yourself out there.Well my young friend, I hope this answers your question!-N
What are the biggest misconceptions about Japan and Japanese culture?Biggest? Why only the biggest? I have had so many misconceptions to deal with while interacting with foreigners including on Quora. This would be a perfect opportunity for me to express my own native Japanese perspectives on some of the well distributed ideas regarding our country.Table of contentsJapanese trains are always on time.Most Japanese people are niceJapanese think only Japan has four seasons.Japanese people think they are not Asians.Japan is a very safe country.If you go to a Japanese High School, you can date and become happy forever like in Anime.In Tokyo, there are vending machines which sells underpants of High School Girls.Japan has one of the highest suicide rates in the world.Are you ready? Here we go!Japanese trains are always on time.Always? Hmm, I’ve never seen a single day where the infamous Chuo line was on time. Not to mention that I would even care since they come once every two minutes.The punctuality of Japanese public transportation has been discussed frequently in foreign nations however, what they are often not aware of is the fact that such claims are something from the past. Punctuality of train systems, particularly in Tokyo has deteriorated signNowly for the past two decades.This is often the result of extensive connection service with other train lines within the region.The best example would be the Tokyu Toyoko Line. Opened in the 1920s, the 24km train line which connects Tokyo and Yokohama carries one million people back and forth every single day. In the 1960s, the simple train line which went back and forth from Shibuya to Yokohama got a new destination by sharing lines with a subway line. By 2014, the network has grown to include 4 subway lines, 5 private overground lines, two lines of their own, and one Tourist line.Hence any single unrelated issue from different lines on the other side of the country now affects the punctuality of the train line.Hence, when you're in a rush, make sure you go to your train station ten minutes early, especially if you are changing trains multiple times. You will thank me for that.Also dont forget about the frequent train jumpers who jump into trains to commit suicide. They are the worst.Most Japanese people are niceWe are professionals at acting nice. Since childhood, we receive intensive training on how to be nice to others, especially during our teenage years. Politeness skills is like trunks for elephants. It is required to survive. People who lack such skills would experience the force of natural selection. Hence, we seldom show our real emotions. In fact, when the Japanese have started showing you their real emotion in public, you should know that you have massively fu*ked something up. (I learned this in the hard way)Japanese are polite but not necessary nice.I remember when I was studying in America I was calling the Japanese bank since my credit card was stolen.The head of the dorm suggested me to contact the credit card company and have them mail it to me.Sir, I have lost my credit card and have no money what so ever. Can you help?Operator: Okay. In that case, please come to the bank immediately with your ID. We will give you the new card in person with your valid identification.Sir, unfortunately, I am currently in California, not Tokyo. I physically cannot take the card.Operator: Okay, then please cancel your activity abroad immediately and see our staff in Tokyo as soon as possible.Sir, I do not even have the money to purchase ticket back to Tokyo. Can you mail the new card to this address?Operator: That would be the violation of the company guideline. Please come to the our office in person.Okay, sir, then can I have my mother take the card for me? She has my valid ID with legal documents proving that she is my parent.Operator: I am sorry, you are the only one who we can give you your new card.Then, what the fuck can I do!?!?! This is an emergency. I fucking have no money to go back to Tokyo what so fucking ever!!!!!Operator: In that case, please contact to the Japanese Embassy. Thank you.It was the most cold blooded polite person ever to talk. The Americans are often rude, but they have hearts. Who I called acted like a robot. It made me feel very lonely.Japanese think only Japan has four seasons.Oh, come on! I see these statements all over the internet including Quora. Is this a joke of some sort? Sure, many of us still thinks Russia (and Putin) is Communist, all Americans have guns and shoot anyone suspicious, all foreign lands are dangerous, and Scotland are Englishman as well (and are obsessed with teas). However I have never met or heard of anyone who holds such a ridiculous view anywhere. I mean, simple 6th grade science can debunk such myth (If it were to exist, that is). We are not that comically unintelligent.Japanese people think they are not Asians.Here is another common myth which frequently surface out online. This may come from the Meiji era policy 脱亜入欧 (Exit Asia Enter Europe). However, such ideas are outdated, especially after the cold war when the term East vs West became less relevant.However, we dont use the term Asia frequently in the first place.In school we learn there are six continents in the world.North AmericaSouth AmericaAntarcticaAfricaEurasiaAustraliaStrangely, in maps published in Europe and Americas, there is a peculiar borderline passing through the Former Soviet Union and Turkey.Like thisWhat is this!?Japan is a very safe country.Maybe. Relative to places like the United States or South Africa.I am going to say relatively because, well, I used to think like you until I learned it in the hard way.Also minor crimes such as theft and groping are quite common. Young female individuals should be extra careful.Friend: Officer, my bike was stolen! Someone broke the chain from where I parked!Cop: Nay, they happen often here. Dont get bothered by it.Friend: I have the Security Registration number hereCop: Dude, it doesn't matter. It wont come back. I think you should better buy a new one. They aren’t expensive anymore.—One day in OsakaIf you go to a Japanese High School, you can date and become happy forever like in Anime.Oh shit. Did you imagine that as a high school life in Japan?? Ahahhahaha! Enjoy the taste of reality!If you were a high school student in Japan and had a girlfriend and especially so had a successful career after that, you'll be instantly slaughtered by angry envious mobsters.There is a reason why high school dating is such a major theme in Japanese entertainment industry. Why would anyone consume something which they already have? Huh? Huuuuuuuh????There are two types of teenagers in Japan, those who would be successful, and those who would not. Being a successful teenager means to go to a high profile university via entrance exams. Such success requires a specific environment, at least to the general public.If you want to succeed, have a stable job in the future, or your parents want you to be that way, you will be locked into a fierce competition between other teenagers. No time for dating. Sorry.In fact, you wouldn't have any options in the first place. Frequently, you would be locked into your study room by your parents to finish homework for the cram school you attend every day from 5pm to 10 pm. Also, don’t forget your school work as well! In fact, many schools would do whatever means to keep you on track. You likely need permission from your teacher to go to anywhere other than school or home even after the classes are over. Many parents install GPS on the teens phone to keep track of them. Dating with a girl?? Out of question!!In fact, most teenage dating happens in rural areas among people who don’t have plans to have a high profile careers as they have stable income from farming and fishing.Also, don’t forget the social obsession against teenage romance. If you're caught dating as a teenager, you'll get unwanted attention from noisy grown ups who would follow you like pikmins.In Tokyo, there are vending machines which sales underpants of High School Girls.Sigh* What the Fu*k!? I mean, Whaaat tha Foooooh!!!This claim has been around the internet all over the place, even being cited by high profile non-comedic opinion makers. No. I have never seen anything like that, even in the most fishy places in Tokyo like Akihabara, nor have heard any claims of such being reported.No one in Japan are aware of such thing nor are talking about it, even the most savage netizens such as 2channel users.Here are the responses from them1：風吹けば名無し＠＼(^o^)／： 2017/06/27(火)ええんか？(Thats even okay?)6：風吹けば名無し＠＼(^o^)／： 2017/06/27(火) こマ？(What!? True?)3：風吹けば名無し＠＼(^o^)／： 2017/06/27(火) よく知ってるな(How do you know that?)4：風吹けば名無し＠＼(^o^)／： 2017/06/27(火)どこに売ってるんだよ 教えてくれ(Where do they sell those? Tell me)*Edited and Translated by myselfEven the 2 chan users, who are professionals at underground industries were not aware of such thing which pretty much proves such thing does not exist in the first place.Legally speaking, public display of obscene materials are strictly prohibited in Tokyo. Such vending machines surely would be illegal.So, no. No high school panties. Don’t be disappointed if you cannot find those after you exit Narita or Haneda. I warned you! (We don’t even need people with such intentions to come to Japan in the first place)But don’t fret. We do have quite a lot of other awesome vending machines around the town so enjoy those instead.Japan has one of the highest suicide rates in the world.Yes, Japan has a relatively high suicide rate compared to the world average. Yet, the statement “one of the highest” is actually an overstatement.According to the WHO, the suicide rate in Japan (per 100k people) is 15.4, while the world average is 10.7. It is relatively high if you think that every two suicides in the world, there are three in Japan. However, if you compare with other nations, things get complicated. For example, the United States scores around 12.6 which is only 2.8 points lower then Japan. South Korea scores over 24 while Sri Lanka, almost 35. Many former Communist countries in Eastern Europe and the USSR ranks much higher then Japan. Therefore Japan does not have one of the highest suicide rates in the world.Yet, why do we associate Japan with Suicide so much? There is no definite answer to this as no one has studied it, however, guesses can be made.One reason could be the fact that our tradition of Seppuku and Kamikaze being widely known throughout the world. People seem to associate Japan with Seppuku and Kamikaze quite commonly. And yes, Kamikaze and Seppuku are sometimes seen in a positive note in everyday life in Japan, but most of us consider such tradition as extreme and outdated.Another reason could be the notoriously high suicide rates among the youths.Recent studies show that Japan has the highest suicide rates among the youths since the 2000s. Tragedy among the youths often gets closed up internationally and such news frequently appear in world news headlines such as BBC and CNN even if they are covered very little in Japan.Footnotes 【画像あり】人気海外ドラマ「東京じゃJKのパンツが自販機で売ってる」 : キニ速
What are the top 10 pieces of career advice Gayle Laakmann McDowell would give to future software engineers?I'll get to my, uh, fifteen pieces of advice. But first, let me explain what awesome careers look like.They don't look like nice linear graphs, where you're moving up a little bit each month. (Heck, even so-so careers don't look like that. You don't move up every month. You get a bit better at your career every month, but you move up in big steps.)Great careers look more like this. They have some periods of slower growth and some "turning points" where your career shoots up.The color changes? Those are career changes: software development to product management, sales to cofounder, etc.They also have some setbacks. Because you know what? Being great requires taking some risks. And taking enough risks means you'll fail a bit too.So with that said...Coding:#1: Code. A lot. Schools are great at theory, but not so much at practical stuff. This is especially true at the top universities. Professors are academics and are often actually hostile to more "practical" forms of education. The best way to be a great coder is to just practice - a lot. It doesn't matter so much what you code (open source, iPhone apps, etc.) as long as you're coding and pushing yourself.#2: Be language agnostic. Language is just a tool. It's valuable to know a language deeply, but it's also valuable to be learning new things. The best developers tend not to identify as a ____ developer.Career choices:#3: Prestige helps. Having a strong name on your resume helps open doors and show competence. If you can get a name like Google, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft, Dropbox, etc, do it. (But don't stay long. See #4.)#4: Leave the big companies quickly. If you want to build your career at a big company, then by all means, stay and build your career there. But if that's not what you want, leave quickly. One or two years post-college at a company like Google is great. 10 years? Not so much. You will continue to learn, but there are diminishing returns of sticking around. (Unless you want to be a big company person.)#5: If you want an A+ career, come to the San Francisco bay area. I love Seattle and began my career there, but I have to be honest: there are so many more opportunities in tech in the bay area. You will limit yourself as an engineer (or product manager/tech business role) if you live elsewhere.#6: If you don't want an A+ career, don't come to the bay area. It is extremely expensive here. Seriously. That's worth it if you want a ton of career options. But if you just want a cushy career, there are more affordable cities with enough tech (like Seattle). A good software engineer can buy a nice house in Seattle. It's a stretch in the bay area.#7: If you don't want to be a developer forever, then move on quickly. There is a lot of value in getting really deep technical expertise. But it doesn't matter that much whether you spent two years as a developer or seven years. Within a few years of college graduation, make a choice. Do you want to be an engineer for the next 10, 20, 30 years or not? If you don't, start trying to move on now. More time as an engineer won't help you that much.#8: Quit quickly. If I look at my friends who have switched jobs, almost all of them were thinking about quitting for the last 6 - 12 months. Some stayed for 2 or 3 years after they start saying that they want to quit. They've wasted so much time because of just a resistance to change. If you're thinking about quitting, take action now. Start applying elsewhere - or possibly just quit outright. You probably won't be very successful if you're unhappy anyway, and there is a big opportunity cost in staying.Dealing with others:#9: Integrity matters. If you try to cheat and cut corners, it'll haunt you. Do the right thing in life. It's not only the good thing to do, but it's also the smart thing to do. People will trust and like you more. More doors will open - and those doors might just be the breakthrough moments in your career.#10: Be helpful. When possible, help people who ask for help. This is a nice thing to do as well as a smart thing to do. These people who ask you for help right now will be much more likely to help you in the future. That "help" might be introducing you to their friends who can help you more directly. So even if you don't see how that person will be helpful, you don't know who their buddies are or will be.#11: Make friends. You actually can't really be successful by yourself. If you're an entrepreneur, you need employees and business connections. If you're an employee, you need a job. Either way, it's friends who will be key to opening up these opportunities. It's friends, distant and close ones, who form the important part of your network, not that one person you met at a meetup and never talked to again.Being awesome:#12: Realize - no, internalize - that we've all got impostor syndrome. Even the most successful entrepreneurs and engineers (with very few exceptions) feel like they just got lucky and aren't nearly as good as people think, and that one day soon they're going to get "caught." Truly internalizing just how widespread impostor syndrome is can help you realize that feeling like you're a fraud doesn't mean that you are.#13: Start stuff. Show initiative. Good things come to those who don't wait. Seek out new opportunities. Start stuff - a hackathon, a club, a project, a company, a new running group, whatever. You will learn so much from doing this and it will open doors.#14: Take risks. Seize opportunities. When you notice that little flicker of opportunity, seize it. Run with it. See where it goes. Don't walk away just because you don't know exactly where it's going to go.#15: Bias towards "yes." A great career hinges on the "breakthrough" moments. The problem is that you often can't identify those in advance. You don't know where that coffee meeting that you don't see the point in is going to lead. You won't know that, two months down the line, that person will end up introducing you to a guy who needs some advice and winds up as your business partner. Maintain a strong bias towards saying yes.All of these have a reason - usually multiple stories - behind them. They are things that I, or my friends/clients, have lived.Lots of coding projects (#1) plus some friends (#11) resulted in my landing an internship at Microsoft after freshman year.That paved the way to eventually landing a job at Google, which has opened countless doors (#3).Initiative (#13) and seizing opportunities (#14), as opposed to careful planning and research, led to my launching two companies, both of which are profitable and just amazing experiences.In fact, both of those companies also started as an unpredictable result of agreeing (#15) to do a favor for a friend (#10).Acquisition consulting (now a core part of my business) started because someone asked me to help them. I didn't really feel like it at the time, but I said yes (#15) because I've seen over and over again how valuable this philosophy is.But I made mistakes, too.I love Seattle (where I used to live), but being in the bay area has been so much better for my career. More opportunities and better opportunities, hands down (#5). It is a lot more expensive here though (#6), so if you're not going to use those opportunities, go elsewhere.I also stayed at Google too long probably. The extra time didn’t earn me much (#4). I eventually left because I realized I didn't want to be a developer for my whole life (#7) and because I just wasn't happy (#8).Two more pieces of advice were "automatic" for me, but I've seen the consequences when other people don't do this.I've never identified too closely with languages and it's enabled a lot of flexibility. When I've coached people who do, they get much more limited in their career (#2). Fewer companies to pick from and the language-specific developers are often stigmatized as being weaker.As for integrity (#9), two stories come to mind. In both cases, someone's drive for success caused them to ultimately hurt themselves. In the first situation, a colleague tried to take advantage of a legal loophole to back out of a very important commitment. He eventually backed down, but I would never work with him again. I also won't help him if it's any sort of help that requires trust. (That is, I'll fill out a survey for him, but I won't connect him with anyone.)In the second situation, a fellow author posted some fake negative reviews of my book in some stupid, short-sighted attempt at winning. When I confronted him, he made up all sorts of lies and accusations. Now, he periodically asks me to connect him to someone I know or if I want to work with him on something. I refuse. Again, it's not revenge, it's protecting myself and my friends.If you've been tracking, you might notice that there's one left: Impostor syndrome (#12).I've known what impostor syndrome is for years, but it wasn't until the last year or two that I realized that almost every successful person experiences it. This was an "a-ha" moment for me. It told me that not feeling good enough to do something didn't mean that I wasn't. As a result, I have more confidence and am more likely to launch something (#13), run with an opportunity (#14), or just say yes (#15).
How can I get a lot of people to fill out my Google form survey for a research paper?First of all, to get a lot of responses for your survey don't forget to follow main rules of creating a survey. Here are some of them:Create and design an invitation page, sett the information about why it is so important for you to get the answers there; also write the purpose of your survey.Make your survey short. Remember that people spend their time answering questions.Preset your goal, decide what information you want to get in the end.

You can use MySurveyLab’s survey panel for it. In this case you will get reliable and useful results. You can read more about it here.2.If you don’t want to spent money for responses, you can use the second solution. The mentioned tool enables sharing the survey via different channels: email (invitations and e-mail embedded surveys, SMS, QR codes, as a link.You can share the link on different social media, like Twitter, Facebook, Facebook groups, different forums could be also useful, Pinterest, LinkedIn, VKontakte and so on… I think that if you use all these channels, you could get planned number of responses.Hope to be helpful! Good luck!
As a police officer, what is the strangest thing a suspect ever did?We were called to a home, where an escapee from a secure group home for the insane had holed up with a butcher knife, which he was using to keep his handlers at bay. The Sheriff, who’s jurisdiction this falls under refused to respond as his last dealing with this fellow had put him in hospital, so it was up to myself and my partner to get him out of that hole beneath the old house where he grew up, it was now owned by folks who had never even heard of this guy. Well we talked to the guy for about an hour when he said he was thirsty, so we went to get him a glass of “water” The Doctor who had been standing by put some strange looking liquid in the water, and we put it where the fellow could get it. One drink of that liquid and he was out cold. So we got the knife and returned it to the home owner, then carried the fellow out to the squad car. I wanted to put a straight jacket on him but the doctor nixed the idea saying that it would be cruel since the fellow should be out for at least six hours, long enough for us to haul him some 300 miles to the State Hospital. Well we got about 10 miles North of town when the fellow came to and began kicking at the doors and windows in the back seat of our Ford LTD squad car. Try as he might though he could not kick out the windows, God Bless Ford Motor for using STRONG glass in their police packages. So it was for the next 300 miles, he would scream and kick for about ten minutes, then fall asleep for about 15 minutes, the masturbate till he made a mess in the back seat, then return to kicking and screaming till again he passed out. Longest damn drive I ever made, we turned up the AM Radio in the car to try and out blast the fellow but it didn’t do much good. Ah but that drive home was such a relief. The County paid for the damage to the squad because of the Sheriff refusing to do his duty and it was extensive, needed a new headliner, back seat, the doors were bowed out and it leaked wind and rain till the body shop got it in and fixed it. I think we would have been in a lot more trouble had the fellow not been wearing crepe shoes.

What is wrong with the hiring process and how could it be fixed? Endless forms have to be filled out, nothing is unified, and GitHub, StackOverflow (for developers) or Dribbble (for designers) are not taken into consideration.Finding the right job candidates is one of the biggest recruiting challenges. Recruiters and other HR professionals that don’t use best recruiting strategies are often unable to find high-quality job applicants. With all the changes and advances in HR technologies, new recruiting and hiring solutions have emerged.

Define your ideal candidate a.k.a candidate personaNot knowing who your ideal candidate is, will make finding one impossible.

How can I fill out Google's intern host matching form to optimize my chances of receiving a match?I was selected for a summer internship 2016.I tried to be very open while filling the preference form: I choose many products as my favorite products and I said I'm open about the team I want to join.I even was very open in the location and start date to get host matching interviews (I negotiated the start date in the interview until both me and my host were happy.) You could ask your recruiter to review your form (there are very cool and could help you a lot since they have a bigger experience).Do a search on the potential team.Before the interviews, try to find smart question that you are going to ask for the potential host (do a search on the team to find nice and deep questions to impress your host). Prepare well your resume.You are very likely not going to get algorithm/data structure questions like in the first round. It's going to be just some friendly chat if you are lucky. If your potential team is working on something like machine learning, expect that they are going to ask you questions about machine learning, courses related to machine learning you have and relevant experience (projects, internship). Of course you have to study that before the interview. Take as long time as you need if you feel rusty. It takes some time to get ready for the host matching (it's less than the technical interview) but it's worth it of course.
