How to be successful in employment as a graduate

Today there are more people studying for degrees than there have ever been. Perhaps this is partly due to societal improvements which have led to greater intelligence. Regardless of why, it can be very difficult for graduates to find employment. There are usually a significantly greater number of applicants than there are jobs available, which is a problem for those who haven’t achieved top tier grades in their subject.

Considering the competitiveness of the market, it is incredibly important to avoid making mistakes when you apply. One of the most common mistakes stems from candidates failing to take each individual application seriously, where they distribute their resume with reckless abandon without carefully considering what skills to include in relation to the job they are applying for. It is important to remember that when recruiters scan your resume, they will look at your academic background, and they will observe whether your profile and experience matches what is listed on their job specification. It is therefore crucial for graduates to tailor their resumes to include relevant experience, and create a profile that matches the skills necessary to succeed in the jobs they are applying for. This way, recruiters will be impressed by thier educational backgrounds, and also by the skills obtained that are transferable to the job in question.

It is also really important not to limit applications to one or two portals, where graduates often choose one or two agencies and heavily rely on them. If you have sent off numerous applications with one agency and failed to hear a response, it is probably time to move on. This is essential when considering how many different recruitment agencies there are out there, alongside various opportunities to send your resume directly to companies. By restricting yourself to one or two agencies, you are only covering a small percentage of jobs available on the market, so widening your net will improve your chances significantly.

If you have the ambition to further your education beyond the Bachelor’s degree level, then funding opportunities have made this a possibility for people from all walks of life. Here you will greatly enhance the skills you need to be successful in the industry, skills that aren’t strictly limited to the specialization you have elected to study. From a broader perspective, you will enhance your ability to communicate, work as part of a team, and will generally become a more confident individual who is better equipped to take on the working world. You can obtain these benefits from studying for a Master’s.

Online routes of education have made it possible to study for a Master’s online, a prospect which would have been refuted ten years ago. Due to technological advancements, studying a VU’s MBA degree online is realistic, a notion that is hard to believe when you consider how difficult it is to gain a bachelor’s degree. This suggests great improvements in the quality of education provided by Virtual Universities.

By following the points above and considering further education, you should ensure a prosperous career for yourself, if you stay focused.

How to get rid of cellulite

What is cellulite?

Often referred to as orange-peel skin, cellulite occurs as a result of enlarged fatty tissue pressing against the upper layer or skin or the epidermis. The result is a cottage-cheese like effect as the surrounding skin puckers visibly, a nightmare scenario for aspiring escorts in London. Our bodies naturally have a layer of healthy fat below the skins surface which acts as connective tissue to join the skin to our muscles and bones. This subcutaneous layer is an essential part of our body and is part of our heat regulation system as well as providing protection. No matter how well toned your body is there will be a layer of fat within the skin.

Normal fat cells in this layer do not produce the effect of cellulite but when these cells become enlarged as a result of poor diet, nutritional deficiencies or when blood flow is constricted then these cells push against the upper skin layers producing the trademark orange-peel dimpling.

Cellulite tends to be more visible in those areas of our body with more underlying fatty tissue such as thighs, buttocks and the stomach.

Cellulite should not be confused with cellulitis which is a skin infection and should be treated by a GP (usually with antibiotics).
How to prevent cellulite

The primary way to combat the appearance of cellulite is to start from within. Eating a diet that is rich in lean protein and avoids unhealthy fats and sugar will help reduce the fat cells in your subcutaneous layer of skin. It should also be noted that smokers tend to suffer more with the appearance of cellulite as a result of the skins diminished elasticity. Regular cardio workouts and targeting exercises to tone those problem areas will all help to prevent the onset of cellulite, escorts based in London should consider joining a local gym or take up jogging outdoors.

Staying hydrated and boosting your metabolism are also excellent ways to combat this dreaded skin condition.

How to treat cellulite

But what if you already have cellulite and the changes in your diet and lifestyle aren’t improving the appearance of your skin? Well, there are some proven ways to help target those problem areas which may help.
Body Brushing

Using a dry body brush made with natural fibres you can perform a full body brush from your toes to your shoulders. The process of brushing the skin is thought to encourage a healthy circulation and improved blood flow which results in plumper looking skin. If your skin is more plump then the visibility of underlying cellulite should diminish. This can be done before taking a shower on a daily basis and should be done from the left hand side of your body to the right hand side, brushing towards the heart to aid circulation.
Exfoliating Scrub

A method favoured by many professional escorts, with similar purpose to the body brushing exercise an exfoliating scrub will invigorate your skin and leave it refreshed and more plump looking. You can try any number of products on the market place or mix your own scrub together using natural ingredients such as sugar or coffee grounds.
Juniper Oil Massage

Juniper oil can help reduce water retention and the process of massaging this in to the skin can help break down the build-up of other toxins within the skin.
Drink Green Tea

What could be simpler? But how does it help? Well, Green Tea which is easily obtainable from many London stores has natural but potent thermogenic properties meaning it burns fat. Reducing the fat content of your subcutaneous layer will improve the appearance of cellulite.
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)

Proven to help the body dispose of ‘brown’ fat ACV can help boost metabolism and aid with weight loss and toning. Simply drinking two tablespoons with warm water three times a day before meals can help.

The Top 10 Best Cities for Your Skin

A recent study from WalletHub looked at the top 150 cities in the United States in terms of size and evaluated them according to 17 different characteristics in terms of their impact on skin. These included risk of skin cancer, pollution, smoking and more. Here’s look at the top 10:

  1. El Paso, Texas
  2. San Antonio, Texas
  3. Austin, Texas
  4. Minneapolis, MN
  5. Santa Rosa, CA
  6. Plano, TX
  7. Memphis, TN
  8. Dallas, TX
  9. Newark, NJ
  10. New York, NY

Based on the list, it seems that Texans can add “skin suitability” to their list of things to be proud of, besides all the cultural attractions, rich history and top sports teams. So how did Texas cities—and the others—make the top 10? Well, we consulted skin care researchers from Adore Cosmetics to review these results, and they pointed out that these top 10 cities seem to be great for the skin for a number of practical reasons.

First, they have the fewest incidences of melanoma per capita, they tend to have fewer days with extreme temperatures, higher amounts of dermatologists per capita and plenty of skin care centers, among other qualities.

So if you’re looking for a place to relocate where your skin is likely to look its best, now you have 10 great options to consider.
