Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

PERFECT HANDSHAKE

30 July 2010

PERFECT HANDSHAKE

Jobseekers take note!

According to Geoffery Battie, Head of Psychology Sciences, at University of Manchester, the formula for a perfect handshake is:

PH =

    ? ( e2+ve2 )( d2 ) + ( cg + dr ) 2 + ? { ( 4 less than s greater than 2 )( 4 less than p greater than 2 ) } 2    
    +(vi+t+te ) 2 + { ( 4 less than e greater than 2 ) ( 4 less than du greater than 2 ) } 2

He could have simply said:

  • Recruiters just don’t like

  • Sweaty palms

  • Limp wrists

  • Gripping too hard

  • Lack of eye-contact

According to him, the perfect handshake formula ( before and after the interview ) for impressing HR Managers  comprises

·     Cool dry palms

·     Complete grip

·     Firm squeeze

·     Medium vigor

·     Right hand

·     No longer than 3 seconds

In these days of rampant unemployment and rare interview calls, jobseekers cannot afford to overlook any tip!

EQUALITY

20 July 2010

EQUALITY

Unemployed Girls, Beware !

Here are some findings of Pew Research Center’s Global Attitude Project ( in association with the International Herald Tribune – July 2010 ) :

·             There is a pronounced gap between a belief in the equality of the sexes and how that translates into reality.

·             In ChinaIndiaIndonesia and Jordan, equal-rights supporters think, most of the adjustments necessary to establish equality have already been made.

·             In nations ( Europe / USA ) where equal rights are already mandated, women seem stymied by a lack of real progress.

·             More than 50% in 10 of 22 countries said that when jobs are scarce, they should go to men.

Surely they have not read the survey conducted by Psychology Professor Keith Laws ( University of Hertfordshire ), which found that  girls are better than boys when it comes to multi-tasking !

May be my 2 unemployed grand-daughters have still some hope !

HAPPY

16 July 2010

HAPPY

A British Survey of employed people (July 2010) found :

  •  People earning  50,000  Pounds annually were “ happy “ with life overall
  •  People earning  70,000  Pounds annually were “ less than happy “ with their lot !

Will someone survey and answer :

How happy is a person who has been unemployed / jobless for over 2 years and who suddenly gets a job–offer of  7,000 Pounds ?

With 70,000 pounds, can we make 10 jobseekers ecstatic ?

With 70,000 pounds, by how much can we raise the “ Sum-Total “ of happiness in the world ?

Ask unemployed.
