What not to do when you are job hunting

first_imgWe’ve all been through a job search at least a couple of times in our lives. If you’re looking for a new gig, here are 5 things you shouldn’t do.Only apply for jobs online: The internet is a great way to discover job openings, but sometimes you have to get off that couch and do some work. A resume can make you look good, but a smile and a handshake can really sell the first impression, so don’t be afraid to get out there and pound the pavement.Tell co-workers about it: You may think you have some close friends at the office, but things always seem to get around, so it’s probably best to keep news of your job search to yourself. The last thing you want is to have your boss scrutinizing your every move.Apply for jobs you’re overqualified for: You find yourself not having much luck getting interviews for jobs you’re qualified for, so you think it may be best to aim a little lower. Wrong. You’re good at what you do. Those jobs are too easy for you. Hiring managers know this. They know you’ll be bored and unchallenged. Go after those jobs that will test your skills and abilities.Go to every interview: Sometimes the interview process can be overwhelming. Sometimes in the middle of the process your gut tells you that you’re in the wrong place. I once had a hiring manager call to reschedule a 3rd interview with her company. The minute I hung up the phone, I immediately knew the job wasn’t for me. I called her back and told her the truth. She appreciated me not wasting her time.Accept the first offer you get: You may be stressed and frustrated that you can’t find your dream job, but don’t get stuck in a bad situation because you’re having trouble being patient. Have faith that you’ll find something better and let the process run its course. You’ll be much happier accepting a dream job instead of just settling for a new job. 41SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com.

How to attract the largest consumers in the world – Chinese tourists?

first_imgAccording to the announcements for the new tourist year, the competition in the Mediterranean circle will be even more pronounced. “Take courage and look to China. If you are wondering who Chinese tourists are, who FITs and millennials are, what parts of China they come from and what interests them and what their preferences are, come and you will get all the dealsAnnounced Gazdek. “The Chinese tourist is the largest consumer in the world. This year, the Chinese spent 715,00 euros a day on their trip, and the trip is on average 10 days, so that is an average of 7.150,00 euros per trip. For the Chinese, there are no travel seasons, they travel all year round, especially during major holidays, Chinese New Year in February, and Statehood Day in early October. These are great dates to extend our tourist season”Said Andreja Gazdek, the main organizer and owner of Proconcept, announcing the MasterClass on the Chinese tourism market, which will be held on March 13 at the Forum Congress Center. It is interesting that we calculate the planned statistics and figures for next year on the basis of already standard emitting markets in Europe – Germany, Slovenia, Italy, Austria, while constantly forgetting the fastest growing tourist market in the world, China.  Don’t miss to take a piece of the cake of the Chinese tourism market. More information and registration at www.marketingtochinatourists.com According to the announcement, MasterClass will answer key questions such as how Chinese tourists explore where they will travel and how they plan their trip, what are their key motives for visiting a city or country and most importantly how we can attract them and what they like to brag about on social networks. MasterClass on the Chinese tourism market / How to reach millions of Chinese tourists?center_img After these data, the question really remains, what is the insurmountable barrier due to which we constantly neglect this market and what are we afraid of? Maybe we have a fear of the Chinese language and their characters that we don’t know? Chinese social networks, ways of promotion, communication, lifestyle? Or do we think the Chinese are just a fashion trend that will disappear in a short time? What will be of particular interest to tourism professionals is what are the most commonly used applications and platforms on which to promote their products and services and what does it mean to be “linguistically visible”? which you should pay extra attention to before launching marketing campaigns in the Chinese market. “It is important to know how you can stand out from the competition that also wants to present your products and services in China and how you can achieve effective promotion and sales in the Chinese market. ”, said Andreja Gazdek announcing the MasterClass which is intended for everyone who wants to survive in tourism, all tourism workers and agencies, travel agencies and tourist communities. With a further increase in the number of beds exceeding the growth of demand, the occupancy of all types of accommodation is falling on average for the third year in a row, and this trend will continue because investing in tourism is still considered profitable. Unfortunately, due to increased labor costs, this year saw a significant decline in the profitability of tourism companies.  According to the announcements for the new tourist year, the competition in the Mediterranean circle will be even more pronounced.
