BECOME SELF-EMPLOYED


If you are unemployed, become self-employed.

And earn Rs.15,000 /- per month.

If you are already employed, make that your extra income.

To earn this money, all you need is a computer and a printer [which can be hired cheaply].

Start printing and selling [for Rs.50/- each], attached forms to your neighborhood jobseekers. There are thousands of them.

Paste following notices all over your neighborhood:

“We deliver FREE job-alerts on your mobile every day.          
Phone Mr / Ms XYZ ( your name ) on (Mobile No)………………..”

Mobiles can reduce poverty, says UN study.




UNCTAD Information Economy Report says :

“ Poor people often don’t have access to vital information on issues such as current market prices, weather reports and new opportunities for earning income.

The penetration rate of mobile phones is increasing as the technology is affordable for the poor to purchase and use “.

This is borne out by the fact that getting Job Alerts on Mobiles [ JAM ] and applying against those jobs directly from mobiles, is fast catching-up in India.

In India, mobile penetration reached 60 % [ 752 million ], in Dec 2010 and cheapest handsets dropped to $ 20 /-.

Now compare this with internet penetration of just 1 %

Amongst millions of Indian jobseekers, Job Alert on Mobile [ JAM ] –a mobile application developed by HP Labs India - is becoming a favorite pass-time !

Who gets a better salary ?




In a survey, Timothy Judge and Daniel Cable found :

Ø  A thin and frail man gets lower salary as compared to a well-built man

Ø  On an average, thin men earn $8000 / year less than well-built men

Ø  It is exactly opposite in case of women. Well-built women get less salary than thinner women

Ø  On an average, thinner women earn $ 16,000 / year more than well-built women

According to Judge / Cable, their findings support prevalent prejudice around the world that

Ø  Women should look delicate and thin

Ø  Men should appear well-built and muscular

Irrespective of who could have sponsored the survey, it has profound bearing on the efforts of jobseekers,

Ø  Male or Female

Ø  Unemployed or Employed

Ø  Indian or American


Prejudices just cannot be wished away ! Salary differentials will continue.

A Salary-cut is better than a Job-cut !


A survey by the Internal Affairs Ministry of Japan revealed following for year 2009 [ Source : DNA / Oct. 16, 2010 ] :

Ø  Average income of single women [ under 30 ]………..$ 2680

Ø  Average income of single men     [ under 30 ]…………$ 2640

Ø  Increase in women’s income [ over 5 years   ]……(+) 11.4 %

Ø  Decrease in men’s income    [ over 5 years   ]……( - ) 7.0 %

In most other countries, women are least concerned about catching up or overtaking their male counterparts when it comes to salary.

They are far more concerned about getting a job in the first place !

What about men in these other countries ?

They would happily accept a 25% cut in their salaries to keep their jobs !

A Tale of Two Cities

Ø  Bangalore [ India ] /  Oct.2010


Google India announces that it will pay Rs.100,000 [ approx.$2500 ] by way of referral fees to anyone who recommends a software engineer for its India operation [ subject to employment offer from Google and joining ].

Ø  Mountain View [ Cal-USA ] /  Feb.2011

Google USA announces 6,000 job openings and receives 75,000+ job applications within one week. This, despite the fact that Google dropped to fourth rank, as America’s best workplaces [ FORTUNE magazine surveys ],after ranking # 1 in 2007 and 2008.

Google could have saved a lot of referral fees by listing knowledge of Hindi language as one of the eligibility criteria !

INDIA HIRES INMATES !

Times of India [ Feb.04,2011 ] reports that leading Indian Corporate like IDBI Bank, Vedanta Group, Sterlite Foundation, Agarwal Packers, Jindal Steel and Flex Shoes will conduct a recruitment drive in Tihar jail and pick 50 inmates to be employed in their business houses.

These inmates have received professional training during their term at the jail, says Sunil Gupta, law officer, Tihar jail.

It is an irony that these very same inmates would have never got
 employment offer, had they not committed some crime and spent time !

If 42 million unemployed graduates who are registered with 934 State Employment Exchanges were to discover that the path to a job begins at Tihar jail, there could be riots to get admitted in Tihar !
