National lending, leasing and insurance institutions have vested interests in homes, cars, commercial property, businesses, trucks, RVs, boats, or any entity requiring financing or insurance. These institutions need to have continuously updated and accurate information on the condition of this property. It is simply not cost effective for them to have their own “reps” in every single town (zip code) in the United States. So, these institutions sub-contract out this work to freelance “reps” (like you) all over the country.
Since most financing, insurance policies, mortgages, leases, etc. are now completed online, or via 800 telephone numbers, the need for these institutions to maintain “brick and mortar” offices and high salaried “company reps” on a local basis has decreased dramatically. This is where our industry comes in! You will effectively become a representative for 100′s of national companies who need not only “pre-sale” information, but constantly updated “property condition” photos and reports as well.
There’s always been two things that have made me feel awkward: dating and locating employment. I believe there’s a deep connection between both. For me, dating is a whole lot like locating new employment, and when you start to consider it in this way you could start to locate success in one or both endeavors.
In either case, I felt a little judged, exposed and sized-up. The procedure of going to a job interview was sort of like preparing for a date: the garments really did not match right, I constantly looked in the mirror, and I wondered what to say.
It wasn’t until recently that I made the connection between dating and finding a job.
I got to thinking about how out of my element I feel with employers. I feel that we don’t speak the same language and that even though I’m really talented and could verify myself if provided a possibility, nobody intends to provide me a chance. I believe many others have actually experienced something similar, as well.
It’s the same when dating. I began to ask myself whether I was appealing or comical or if there was simply something naturally incorrect with me. I feel similarly when trying to find a job: is there something naturally out of place when it concerns me getting in touch with an employer or searching job listings
As it turns out, I discovered success in dating. I have actually been happily married for 2 years now to a fantastic person. I accomplished this due to the fact that I just chose to stop trying to please others. I accepted what I was, focused on my high quality, and for a year I kept to just appreciating my life. I completed tasks, began reviewing exciting publications, and started learning to speak Russian.
I really did not do this to make sure that I could look a lot more appealing to some individual or company; I did it due to the fact that I wished an excellent life for myself. instantly, I satisfied almost everyone. Most people started appreciating most every thing that I did and was. I was just straightforward. I wasn’t terrified to be myself.
Finding a Job
You can not be every little thing to everybody, and you know what? Do not even try. If you feel that you need to go above and past what you feel comfortable with, the job isn’t really worth it.
A smart company immediately views the worth in a job prospect. They don’t only see your abilities today or what you performed in the past (although those are likewise vital); they view what you could supply them 10 years from now. They need your desire to develop a team environment and to make a difference. If they do not see that, then it’s not an excellent match and you’re far better off searching for better job opportunities.
below are my tips for landing an excellent job. They match the same rules I adhered to for having an excellent marital relationship:
Understand and cherish your worth. It’s what you can offer and what you can supply. You do need to supply something; it’s about getting yourself to recognize it. Maybe you are creative, have grit, or you love to motivate others and you do it really well. Take advantage of those things.
Do not be bashful. While you don’t wish to sound obnoxious or conceited, don’t be ashamed of your accomplishments. You did accomplish them, did you not? Examine the incredible things you have done, be proud of them, and let the company know about them. Let them understand that you really did not do those things so you could be outstanding; you did them due to the fact that it was part of your personal set of talents and drive.
It’s not a one-way street. Finding a job feels like it is though, as if you’re the one trying to court an employer. It isn’t really. In fact, it’s important that you likewise attempt to evaluate them, and make it clear (without being rude about it) that you are sizing them up to see whether or not they’re an excellent fit for you. This is important, due to the fact that you wish to end up working at a place that fits in with your values and work style.
Make demands. I don’t mean that you need to ask for things you really do not want. However, if you don’t believe that a certain job will fairly compensate for your extensive experience, negotiate with them. This isn’t really just about money: it’s about free time, your work style, and so on. If you see that there are things that aren’t absolutely in agreement with your style and knowledge, then you may want to reconsider. You could likewise simply proceed, however don’t take a low-paying job due to the fact that the “economy’s bad” or due to the fact that “no one is hiring” for your position today. Do not opt for less. Expect something more for yourself.
Eventually, as you start to use the above understandings, you’ll find yourself radiating self-confidence and knowledge. You’ll discover yourself saying the right things. Success is something we show with the choices we make.
What do you believe it requires to locate the best job for you? How do you look for jobs – employment agencies, job boards, or job search?
News of Betty White’s recent demise is greatly exaggerated. Due to a mean prank or a mistake, (the jury is still out), viral rumors of Betty White’s death have been racing through cyberspace of late. Happily, we can look forward to more very funny performances from this very funny TV icon.
The first few weeks of the NFL season are always the most difficult for me when it comes to setting my fantasy footballlineup. I usually take into account the yards and touchdowns allowed by a defense that season, but the sample size is so small early in the season that the results are underestimate the actual production or are just outright exaggerated.
Either way, I will take the pre-season’s statistics into consideration in setting up my lineup for Week 1. Yeah, I know. Ballsy:
The Eagles allowed 3 passing touchdowns and the Jets have allowed 2. It was during the preseason so I’ll take these stats with a grain of salt. Plus, a one touchdown difference isn’t all that great.
Since points won’t determine which of my quarterbacks will start this week, I decided to look at the yards allowed; the difference in passing yards allowed was even closer than points allowed. Philly allowed a 10th best 192.5 and the Jets allowed an 11th best 200.0.
Fuck it, I drafted him with my sixth round pick and has a higher ceiling than Freeman: RGIII gets the start. I can see RGIII score a solid 25 points in week 1. I hope Morgan Freeman (no relation to Josh) cares for you all season.
Running backs: Adrian Peterson @ the Detroit Lions, Maurice Jones-Drew vs. the Kansas City Chiefs, Jacquizz Rodgers vs @ the New Orleans Saints, Pierre Thomas vs. the Atlanta Falcons.
I drafted AP and MJD in the first and third round respectively for a reason: I want running backs that I don’t have to worry about. I got Jacquizz and Thomas with the hopes that they become the breakout back in their respective backfield, so I’ll let their work on the field this season speak for itself. Are they starter-worthy? No. At least not unless everyone realizes that Steven Jackson is aging and that Mark Ingram is a bust.
Peterson is up against the Detroit Lions defense that gave up only 79 yards per game and no touchdowns in the preseason. Kansas City on the other hand, gave up 109.2 yard per game and zero touchdowns. Despite this, one of these running backs is going to find the end zone. I think Peterson is going to be the back to get that elusive orange peanut. A predicted 14 points from AP and 11 from MJD, I accept you.
Wide Receivers: Brandon Marshall vs. the Cincinnati Bengals, Dwayne Bowe @ the Jacksonville Jaguars, Stevie Johnson vs. the New England Patriots, Mike Wallace @ the Cleveland Browns
CIN: 185.5 yards per game, 7 TD allowed
JAX: 210.2 yards allowed, 3 TD allowed
NE: 256.2 yards per game, 1 TD allowed
CLE: 226.8 yards per game, 5 TD allowed
Even though the Bengals have allowed the fewest yards out of the four teams on this list, I really do like the probability of Marshall getting more than one touchdown in week 1. He is definitely starting, and could score around 14 fantasy points.
Stevie Johnson called out the Patriots secondary this week. I know it’s the Patriots and they have a way of winning every mental game, but Johnson might get the better of them this time—at least in fantasy football. I don’t see him scoring a touchdown but he can definitely tally up yards since the Patriots have given up 256.2 per game. He’s starting.
Deciding on my third receiver is tough. I do think the Browns defense might break out this season because of new defensive coordinator Ray Horton but that remains to be seen. Cleveland has allowed two touchdowns more than Jacksonville. As odd as it seems, I’m still keeping Bowe as a starter. He has a decent quarterback in Alex Smith and is backed up by an already established running game. Miami’s backfield, and to a lesser extent their quarterback, has proven very little.
Tight Ends: Jordan Cameron vs. the Miami Dolphins, Jermichael Finley vs. the San Francisco 49ers
Admittedly, my team’s tight end position might be the weakest, but it does have potential. Cleveland has a few tight ends in their roster and one of them that can be the unquestioned starter can be Cameron. Finley is well established in the Packers’ offense that has lost a few offensive weapons this season. My gut says Finley. Let’s have a look at the stats:
MIA: 173.4 yards per game, 5 TD allowed
SF: 108.5 yards per game, 2 TD allowed.
That 49ers’ defense is the best in the league. I am starting Cameron with the hopes that he produces almost twice as much this week against the Dolphins as Finley does against the Super Bowl runner-ups.
My league’s scoring rules for defenses heavily favor points and don’t take yards much into consideration.
MIA: 20.8 points per game, 299.4 yards per game
AZ: 16.8 points per game, 325.5 yards per game
I’m going to be a homer and not start the Rams defense. I’ll be too confused if Arizona scores in the game. YES, THEY’’E WINNING/NO, WHY DID THEY DO THAT! MY FANTASY TEAM IS GOING TO LOSE.
An all gut analysis: I don’t see the Chargers scoring much. FIELD GOALS ALL DAY.
At least the entire team will be taking a piss on the field this year instead of just him.
