5 things to avoid when job hunting - Agenda I The World Economic Forum Agenda I The World Economic Forum

The hiring process is broken. Black Hole recruiting has been shown to be a dismal failure. Whose bright idea was it to try to hire brilliant people by reducing them to keywords? That’s idiotic. The only surprising thing about keyword-search-based recruiting is that it’s still hanging on all these years later. Either way, job-seekers get a lot of sympathy from me, as long as they’re taking responsibility for their side of the equation. If you turned on your kitchen faucet and no water came out, you’d check with the utility that supplies your water. Why would you keep lobbing resumes into Black Hole recruiting portals after you notice that you never hear anything back? Job-seekers hurt themselves by failing to notice when the job-search methods they try don’t work.

Here are four other ways job-seekers shoot themselves in the foot. Great job interview questions and model answers. Latinoamérica y su exposición a China. Travel, Lifestyle & Community.

“How do pirates divide their treasure?” and other questions you need to answer to get into Oxford

Even if you get all those, however, there’s still the interview. For the UK’s Oct. 15 application deadline, Oxford University released some sample interview questions (which they also did last year). Tutors—academic researchers and teachers at the university—meet with prospective students and interview them on academic topics, with the goal of understanding how a student thinks and who has the “potential” or “intellectual capacity” for Oxford, according to the university’s interview guide (pdf). Often that means there is not necessarily a right answer, so much as there is a right way of answering: pick apart the question, explain the reasons for the answer you’re giving, figure out ways to test your thesis.

The questions vary based on the applicant’s area of study, of course. Jobs. EL TIEMPO on Twitter: "Conozca y controle los equipos conectados a su cuenta de Google.

Leaders in Urban Transport Planning Program (LUTP) Brochure: Overview of the LUTP Program As cities become the engines of economic growth, city officials and decision makers face a challenging task of developing and maintaining efficient urban transport systems.

Leaders in Urban Transport Planning Program (LUTP)

These systems must address the problems of severe congestion, deteriorating air quality, energy sustainability, and increasing numbers of road accidents. However, urban transport planning and management is complex. It is more than choosing technologies. It involves the consideration of a variety of factors such as affordability, local culture, environmental issues, financing, energy use, and impacts on special populations such as the young and the old. The complexities of urban systems make choosing the right strategy for many transport professionals a difficult task. The program The Leaders in Urban Transport Planning (LUTP) program helps participants develop a structured way of decision making that considers the complexities of urban transport.

5 Reasons You Should Have Sex With Your Husband Every Night 

I was 16 and had picked out orange nail polish (oh, sixteen). I had a book with me but it wasn't long before I found another source of entertainment. In-between buffings and polishings, the two women next to me talked about how much their husbands wanted IT and how little they wanted to give IT. For a girl that had not even been asked out on a date this was a whole new world.

I had a suspicion that their experience was more realistic than the articles I sneaky read in Cosmo while getting my hair done at the salon. "Doesn't he know how tired I am by the end of the day?

Paris Wants to Keep Central Neighborhoods From Becoming 'Ghettos for the Rich'

What can you do when a once socially mixed neighborhood starts turning into a “ghetto for the rich”? Quite a lot, according to the city of Paris. As part of a massive home-building drive, the government of France’s capital has just announced a plan to stop housing displacement in central neighborhoods. It might just be the most radical Europe has yet seen. Earlier this week, the Conseil de Paris published a list of 257 addresses (containing over 8,000 apartments) that the city would have a "right of first-refusal" to buy, in order to convert to subsidized housing. Located in areas that are being gentrified, the city’s plans would both increase subsidized rental options and ensure that at least some housing in these areas remains affordable to lower- and middle-income residents. The nuts and bolts of the plan are as follows. The broader social-engineering goals here are clear to anyone familiar with Paris when you look at where the addresses are distributed on the map.
