Extremely Chapped Lips -Causes and What To Do About Them


Guest Post | October 28, 2017 | category: Beauty Tips

Extremely Chapped Lips -Causes and What To Do About Them. Extremely chapped lips should not be set aside and ignored. It can be really distressful and can cause a lot of pain and discomfort. There are several factors that contribute to the development of severely chapped lips. It can simply be an effect of simple circumstances such as the cold weather but it can also be a symptom of more serious conditions. It is important that one knows why his or her lips are chapped for many days or weeks before taking that lip balm for temporary solution.

The lips are part of the skin but unlike the other areas of the skin and being a mucous membrane, the lips are much thinner and therefore more prone to damage such as chapping, cracking and peeling. Consulting the doctor is the best way to start the treatment process for chronic chapped lips.

The following are the factors and conditions that can cause extremely chapped lips:

Extreme weather – Both cold and hot weather can cause chapped lips. The cold weather plus the cold wind can easily dry out the lips. Same happens with extreme heat from the sun.

Dehydration – Hydration is generally what makes the skin moist and healthy. Lack of hydration is considered to be the number one cause of chapped lips.

Vitamin Deficiencies – Lack of the important vitamins that helps in skin care can also be a cause of chapped lips. These vitamins include the vitamins riboflavin (vitamin B2), ascorbic acid (vitamin C), retinol (vitamin A), and tocopherol (vitamin E).

Allergy – One of the most common effects of an allergic reaction is cracked, chapped, sore and suddenly inflamed lips.

Diabetes – Diabetes generally makes the body more prone to injuries, and chapped lips are one of them.

STDs (Sexually Transmitted Disease) – STDs, which include HIV-AIDS, can cause chronic chapped lips.

Chapped lips can be easily remedied with the following interventions:

  1. Use of ointments, lip balms, etc. – The most common remedy for extremely chapped lips is by applying ointments and lip balms on to the affected area. A slice of cucumber can also be applied as well as Shea butter, coconut oil, and even used duck fat for moisture and faster healing.
  2. Avoid hot and spicy food – during the time that the lips are still cracked and sore, spicy, and salty foods will just make them worse so it’s best to avoid them while they aren’t healed yet.
  3. Drink lots of fluid – hydration is the key so one has to be sure he or she drinks adequate amounts of water everyday.
The Hidden Gems of "Uncivilized" Balochistan

The Hidden Gems of “Uncivilized” Balochistan


Guest Post | October 27, 2017 | category: News

The hidden gems of “uncivilized” Baluchistan.Have you heard of Pakistan? The same country with a youth bulge? Yes, you heard it right. To many informed readers and foreigners, Pakistan is a land of an overly populated youth. However, what the youngsters of the myriad challenges faced by this country seldom makes headlines in the media.  This is mostly seen when it comes to the females hailing from minority communities especially Balochistan.

The Thrive to Receive Education Found in Abundance among the Females

After hearing about the First International Conference on Social Sciences in Quetta, my perception regarding the less educated females of Baluchistan changed entirely.  Students of this university are excelling in the field of education, enrolling for M Phil and Ph.D. degrees. It was only in 2013 that the university was bombed losing around fourteen lives of intelligent minds. Contrary to the massive belief that women would be afraid of continuing their education, the university intake tripled in number.

Outclass Discussions Showcased by Young Minds

To top it off, the chairing of the session on language and literature by the former candidates of the university followed by interactive and productive discussions on education and human values depicted that the thrive for self-development is well lit and alive in the young females of Baluchistan. Furthermore, the incredible political and social awareness skills demonstrated by the students without any hesitation showcased the unbeatable confidence in these young and highly educated gems.  With a total of one hundred and fifty presentations, the session proved to be a clear testimony of excellence, courage, and commitment to education portrayed by the women of Baluchistan.

University- A Safe Haven from the Outside World?

The universities in Baluchistan are offered termed as ‘safe havens’ for the young females of Baluchistan who wish to get rid of the limitations that patriarchal society places imposes on female emancipation. Each student of Baluchistan has a tale to tell. Surely, voicing your rights amid the conservative society goons has never been an easy task, especially for women in Baluchistan. The height of this is such that students are afraid to visit their native villages out of fear that they will not be allowed to return to university hostels.

Together We Stand!

Galling together, these women are playing a huge part in coming along and working towards a more libertarian and equal society. They demand to be heard and heard our loud-nothing lesser than that is acceptable by these fierce fully intelligent brains.  Equal opportunities for employment and educational opportunities with women rights being acknowledged stand of high significance to them. What is even wrong with that? Competing with their male counterparts will only bring about self-sufficiency, financial and social independence within these young souls.

On the contrary, the young luminaries exhibited their concern regarding complex issues including identity in the multi-ethnic society. Their belief to bring about a broader acceptance and tolerance to other sects, castes and cultures was astounding and indeed a key to co-habitation in a nation. Their main aim is to preserve local languages, customs while doing away with firmly established stereotypes in the country cannot go unnoticed. An even more unnoticeable notion would be the masses calling out Pakistan’s most populated province as “uncivilized.”

The weakening inter-provincial relations with people’s “deemed right” to exploit Baluchistan’s natural resources without caring an ounce about the social development in the province aches the hearts of these young females. The oil and gas-rich province have its women to raise their voice and question powerful state institutions that are playing a considerable part in violating these resources. Transparency and anguish against lack of accountability are evident in the shining faces of the Baloch women for which they now seem eager to take on the baton of leadership.

CPEC- A trigger of Concern?

How could we end detailing out the feelings of the Baloch women without giving CPEC a mention? Much fear that the China-Pakistan Economic Project would lead to an influx of foreign expats ruling the locals while others also doubt if the newly developed infrastructure projects would create equal opportunity employment for the deserving females of the province.

Conclusively, the powerful abilities to debate, counter question, and hold healthy discussions regarding the current state of Baluchistan would give shivers down the spine of many Pakistanis calling them uncivilized. Confidence and intelligence lurking in the female youth of the province would do nothing less than leave you in awe.

Much needs to be accomplished. For every girl receiving education, many other girls have to sit back home not because of they lack a thirst for knowledge but simply because of lack of sufficient facilities in Baluchistan. Lastly, the hostile attitude towards working women in the province would soon be eradicated by the same females disagreeing with the stereotypes, and standing high for their rights!

Why Does The Diet Go Into Anorexia

Why Does The Diet Go Into Anorexia


Guest Post | September 8, 2017 | category: Health and Beauty

Why Does The Diet Go Into Anorexia. The diagnosis of “anorexia,” that is, the pathological rejection of food, according to research, affects about 4% of women around the world. In pursuit of beauty, they refuse from eating. After a meal, they cause vomiting, and start to lose weight quickly, sometimes it comes to a lethal outcome.

To defeat anorexia, one drug treatment is not enough, it is necessary to understand the psychological causes that caused this deviation.

In adolescence, problems with appearance often come to the fore. Boys want to have a muscular figure, girls – a beautiful face. In addition, this is quite natural, because they want to be liked by their peers. Each age has its own priorities. If in the childhood games were the most important for kids, then in school, study and communication with peers go to the forefront. Moreover, in the high school, the desire to communicate even pushes back studies. For teenagers it is more important than assessments. This is quite natural: they need to learn how to behave in a team, to win respect and authority. It leads to problems with studying and children start to suffer from various complexes. If girls can not assert themselves in the team, they often come to the conclusion that the whole thing is in an unattractive appearance, and therefore, it is necessary to correct it.

Schoolgirls often perceive themselves as inadequate, so even a small flaw can inflate to an incredible scale. First, weight loss gives them satisfaction. After all, peers admire her willpower. This attitude increases self-esteem, and often girls continue to fatigue themselves with diets to assert themselves in other people’s eyes. In addition, if at first weight loss was only part of a grandiose plan (to be successful in school, to be liked by peers, to make a career), then gradually it becomes an end in itself. All the other tasks are moved to the distant future.

Psychologists sometimes call anorexia “a disease of honored pupils”. Very often independent, successful, ambitious girls who set themselves high goals are subjected to this disease. Usually, they learn well, are respected in the team, but strive to achieve more. They tend to the ideal, the desire to be perfect in everything. By noticing any shortcomings (often imaginary), they are trying hard to correct them.

In the early stages, girls are hiding that they restrict themselves to eating. For example, at home they say that they ate at school, and teachers are assured that they were given breakfast with them. Often in the field of vision of doctors, they fall only after 2-3 years of diet, when leanness becomes too obvious. However, by that time anorexia is already taking the second stage, and curing it becomes much more difficult.

Sexual development at the hormonal level begins at 8-9 years and is completed by the age of 18. Girls in this period need a full meal. A strict diet and starvation can provoke very significant negative changes in the body – the maturation of eggs is impaired, other reproductive organs suffer.

It happens that after treatment in psychiatric hospitals patients are recovering, gaining the necessary weight. However, any problem, frustration or conflict situation leads them to believe that the problem is in excess weight, they are starting to lose weight again. Experts warn: in neglected cases, the situation can reach complete depletion (cachexia) and, despite all the efforts of physicians, about 20% of patients cannot be saved. Therefore, even if the treatment was successful, it is necessary to continue to be observed by the therapist. This will help to avoid relapse.

The prerequisites for getting anorexia are laid in early childhood. It all begins with an innocuous remark of mother, father’s joke, the sneer of a brother or sister. Therefore, in any case, do not criticize the appearance of your daughter! You should not compare her with models, actresses, athletes. Do not allow comments like: “If you were slimmer, you could succeed!” In this case, the girl can form a belief that success is inextricably linked to the way she looks, and not from her internal qualities.

Noticing that the girl began to limit herself in food, be sure to talk with her, ask about the reasons for this behavior. Nevertheless, speak very delicately so as not to cause aggression. If you cannot convince her, you should ask a professional psychologist.

A compromise is also possible: agree with the daughter that the diet will not hurt, but it is better if it is made by a specialist. You can pay a visit to a dietician together with her. Let him examine the girl and make an individual meal plan for her. A specialist will probably offer a soft, sparing diet that does not do any harm, but at the same time will help to keep fit.

5 Tips on How to Maintain Your Air Conditioners

5 Tips on How to Maintain Your Air Conditioners

Air conditioning systems can be complicated and sometimes tricky to work with, especially if you are not an expert. However, this does not mean you should ignore the point that there are things you should know, and at least attempt to maintain the air conditioning system throughout the year. Whether you have an inverter AC that gives off cold or warm air, or own a smart ICEAGE Wi-Fi air conditioner it will require maintenance at some point in time.

To ensure the entire unit functions properly, you have to maintain the coils, filters, and fins every now and then. Neglecting the necessary maintenance eventually leads to a steady decline in the life of air conditioners and destroys its performance and steadily increases its energy consumption. So, to maintain the coolness in your home during hot summer days, let’s take a quick look at the top care tips for your air conditioners.

1.     Change the Filters Regularly

The most significant maintenance tip that will ensure your air conditioners work efficiently is to replace or clean the filters routinely. Dirty or clogged filters block the normal flow of air and reduce the efficiency of systems significantly. With the normal airflow obstructed, the air that bypasses may carry dirt into the evaporator coil directly and impair the heat absorbing capacity. Also, replacing a clogged or dirty filter can lower the energy consumption of your air conditioner by 5-15%.

Generally, some types of filters are the reusable ones, while others require replacements every now and then. It is recommended that every homeowner should change their AC filters every three to six months. It is a fact that most health related problems are caused by poor indoor air quality. Allergens and dust find their way into homes through AC filters that are clogged or dirty.

2.     Set a Timer

It is not likely that someone will be in your home all the time. There are times when you and your family may decide to leave the house, but even if you all stay indoors, you may not need to cool your home constantly through the day. Setting a timer or thermostat control when switching on the split system, can save you a huge bundle of power bills through the month and years. While everyone is at work during the day, there is no point for you to regulate the temperature in your home.

However, it is certainly nice to head back to a cool home after a hectic day at work. This is when you can depend on a smart thermostat or timer to adjust the temperature upon entering your home and ensure you don’t over use it.

3.     Keep the Condenser and Coil Clean

If you own a split air conditioner, you will also want to maintain the portion of the unit that stays outdoors. This portion is important for the continued operation of your air conditioner system and you will want to make sure that you maintain it regularly. Routinely clean the coils and condensers to prevent the entire system from facing further problems.

To minimize the debris and dirt near the condenser unit, you need to keep the area around it clean. Falling leaves, dry dusty air could soon find its place into the condenser and reduce the flow of air.

4.     Lower the Work Load of Your Air Conditioner

If you really wish to save money, an efficient and long lasting air unit is what you need, one that you don’t have to take to professionals for regular services. To ensure that your air conditioner works in the best way, you have to regulate the temperature and you will effectively extend its life and lower the amount of money you will spend every month.

Another tip here is to keep all the windows and doors closed when you turn on your air conditioners. Most people believe that leaving the windows and door open doesn’t affect the cooling. However, this isn’t right. The more you leave the windows open, the more your air conditioning unit will stay turned on to achieve the desired cooling in the home. In the end, you will be left with heavy bills!

5.     Always Purchase from Reliable Brands

When you buy your air conditioner from reliable brands, then you should know that you will be saved from the costs of regular maintenance. However, if your air conditioning systems still face problems, it is advisable that you call in professionals from where you purchased the cooling unit.

Especially during summer, we all know the important role air conditioning systems play to keep our homes cool. Follow these maintenance tips and you are sure to stay away from excessive money spending and you can say goodbye to massive power bills!

Need some promotional gadget help? Here are 4 things to consider before buying a USB or power bank

A buying guide is the most necessary thing a person needs before buying something. It is one of the most clever acts that a person can follow and the same is the case for all those people who are about to buy a USB or power bank for them, or for their loved ones. There are many things that you need to know about but there are some things that mustn’t be ignored. Thus, if you are also a person who is looking for some of the most key features to know about, without wasting time, then you are at the right place. The top 4 things that you should consider are given as follows

  • Similar specifications must not be confused

When you go to buy a USB for your needs you might see some similar devices as both of those can be of the same brand, the same version (like USB 2 or USB 3.0, 5200mAh, etc) and even the same storage space. However, you shall see that one of these costs significantly more than the other. In these situations, make sure that you do not get deceived by always opting for the cheaper one. It is because this significant difference is because of the quality of the components that are used to make up the USB.

If you think this makes no difference then let us tell you it is all that actually matters. The quality of these components shall determine how longer they shall perform without malfunctioning and be durable for longer periods of time too. There are only two things that make up the USB or power bank’s speed, one is the port, and the other, are the components.  Thus, make sure you also opt for the latest version for a faster speed if you desire one as well.

  • Smaller and thinner does not always mean that they are better, so looks can be very deceiving

The biggest problem with all flash drives is that one shouldn’t go by their appearances. The problem also persists if the drives are so big that they cannot be adjoined with other USB ports when they are plugging it in. However, if because of this the size is made smaller but the speed is much affected then. So make sure that you know that the size of the USB is big enough to fit all the needed components in it in a considerable manner and is also not too big to have adjoining port issues as well. So, go for the one which has an intermediate size among all.

  • Limited span

The average cycle for these drives, is between 3,000 and 5,000 cycles so be accepting about it. Hence, do not panic if it stops working after some time. These cycles are already enough for you for sometime.

  • microUSBs

MicroUSBs are also the latest versions of these so you should know that these are useful only when you want to transfer stuff from your phone to your PC.

Hence, keep these in mind and buy your usb only after considering these points.

Simple Causes of Flu and Cough

Simple Causes of Flu and Cough


Guest Post | February 14, 2017 | category: Health and Beauty

Simple Causes of Flu and Cough

Due to the risk of complications, it’s important to get protection from virus. Since the flu virus can spread from one person to another. If you have had a cough for several weeks or more, it’s a sign that you need to see a doctor. It can the cause of any allergy, digestive issue, allergy or even a disease. Most of the nothing, it’s not anything serious but some signs can tell whether one should be concerned about the cough or not.

Here are a few causes that might be the reason for your lingering cough and flu.

Things in the Air

If you are inhaling polluted air mixed with chemicals like nitric oxide and sulpher oxide, then this can trigger a cough and irritated nose. Dust also does the same thing. Prevent it by not going to such areas or if you really have to go then use a mask to cover your face.

Common Cold

The cough is caused by the viruses that you breathe in with the polluted air through mouth and nose. It’s even possible to catch it from a sick person’s sneeze or touch. In addition to sneezing and runny noses, a cold can get in the throat and cause coughing fits. The course lasts for about a week or so but can cured with a flu or cough medicine.

Asthma

Asthma is a serious disease and make the airways swell. As a result, it can become hard to breathe and you may cough up mucus if not flu. People often mistake it as a common cold or just cough.

A common cold, flu, stress, exercise, smoke and dust can trigger asthma. A severe case of flu also results in an asthma attack because the airways become narrow. You doctor can help you recognize whether it is a flu, cold or a serious case of asthma.

Spread of Viruses

Flu viruses spread from one person to another, through sneezing by people infected from influenza. People get infected by touching a contaminated area infected by a sick person’s sneeze or cough. Adults suffering from influenza are able to infect others from day one to seven days before their symptoms start to occur. This means a person can transfer germs long before finding out about the flu.

Flu is similar to a cold and infects lungs, nose and throat. The germs and viruses are exposed into the air and can get to you if you are around them or touch the same thing. It’s more likely that the effected person will experience high fever and chills rather than a runny nose.

If you get infected by a common flu or cold, there are some common actions you can take before going to the doctor. Drink plenty of water, take flu and cough medicine to relieve the symptoms and avoid smoking. Medications like Aspirin will help to treat headache, fever and muscle pain. Other antiviral drugs are also prescribed to treat the flu, depending upon the severity of the flu and cough symptoms.

How To Make Headlines For Getting More Clicks and Conversions

Headlines are the first sentence or group of words that you see on a story. They have been used newspapers and magazines, but now everything that gets published online also has a headline. There’s a difference between a headline and a title. A title can be long and more dramatic and can describe an article or infographic in great detail.

A headline, on the other hand, is composed of fewer words. This is because there were fewer words allowed for it in the days of printed newspapers. Editors and reporters had to learn to write headlines which were short and punchy and went straight to the point. This way, readers who were looking at papers in the newsstand could already see the headlines. If this was interesting to them, they would buy the actual paper. If not, they would walk away with at least a knowledge that this event had happened.

In today’s modern times, headlines have become important once again. They’re what people read when they see articles on their news feed. Rather than reading the whole thing, people just skim through the headlines and scroll past if it isn’t interesting enough. For businessmen who are counting on clicks and views, this is certainly a big lost opportunity.

Make your headlines catchy and interesting. Appeal to people’s emotions, especially their curiosity. Be exciting but don’t sensationalize it; people don’t like it when the headline promises one thing but the content is totally different when they click to read. Also, headlines should not exceed 20 to 22 words.

We’re offering more creative headline tips to help you get more clicks and conversations. Please take a look at our infographic to learn more tips and tricks.

Take the easy way to ask for a referral for a job

Take the easy way to ask for a referral for a job

Take the easy way to ask for a referral for a job

No matter how capable you are, you need to have something in your job application that helps it get a closer review during the hiring process. Sometimes, if companies don’t have a surety about the kind of a worker or professional you are, they will prefer someone else who they know a little better about. This is nothing out of the order. A recommendation or a referral doesn’t mean that you are taking the short way to get to your goals. It simply means that you want the hiring committee to know how you can be useful to them. The cover letter usually has a mention of the referral you have and that just takes you another step closer to you getting hired.

Importance of referrals in the corporate world

It won’t be wrong to say that referrals are the number 1 source of getting a job in the corporate sector. This is a fast growing and a fast moving sector where there is no room for mistakes and that is why people prefer those candidates, who have a past experience and that too, a good one. This can be assured to the employer by a good referral from someone who takes a minute to personally mention you to the hiring committee.

Why should you ask for a referral?

If you are one of those who feel ashamed to ask for a referral or think that this is probably not the right way to get a job, just take notice of the following points and give it a thought:

  1. Research shows that those you are hired as a result of a referral tend to stay at the job for a longer period as compared to those who don’t have one.
  2. If you sit down and think about it really hard, you will notice that people don’t just give away referrals, they do that as a result of the kind of a person you are and the experience they have had working with you or knowing you.
  3. You are your referral. So, believe in your capabilities and skills while asking for a referral.

Find contacts who are working where you are applying

This is probably the best way to get hired at any place. All you have to do is go to a website where jobs are advertised and people are hired like LinkedIn. Now, search for the company you want to apply in. As you do that, you will see, the website will provide you with a list of people who are already a part of that company. You can ask one of your contacts to give you a referral. This is not just going to help you get the job; it will also take you a long way in the company as that person is always going to be there to guide you through anything. This is why employee referral is considered the best one.

The asking part

This comes across as the hardest thing to do for most people. Therefore, keep in mind the following points as you ask for a referral:

  1. The medium is very important.
  2. Asking for a referral is rather easy and convenient if you do it in writing.
  3. Try not to use the phone for asking a referral.

The Medium

The medium is more important than you might think. It is better to use any medium as long as it gives time to the person who is giving you the referral. If you think about it, a request in writing would give the person more time to think about how he can help you in a certain situation. A standard letter would be fine for this matter or a social media site or maybe even a text if you can’t do much. The person will get the time they need and even if they don’t want to do it, it’s easier to say no through writing than to just say no on the phone.

The don’ts:

You have to keep some things in mind while you go through this step, these might be as following:

  1. Don’t ask people to just write you a reference letter.
  2. Don’t make it impossible for them to say no, if you want a good reference letter.
  3. Don’t leave it all on them if they say yes.

Do it the right way

Show enthusiasm and ask the referrer like you mean it

  1. Make sure that the person who is going to write the reference letter knows about your work.
  2. If they don’t know about your work, make sure you send them an updated copy of your resume.
  3. Stay updated.

Keep yourself updated on recent job openings

One of the most important things to do at all time is that you keep yourself updated about any job openings and other job related websites that can eventually take you towards your dream job. For this, you have to know about some active and helpful websites like rightjobs.pk, LinkedIn and rozee.pk. Don’t keep this process on hold even when you are already doing a job. Building a career is all about the next best thing until you reach what you always wished for. So, never stop fighting for it.

Do a favor or two

Never shy away from extending the same level of courtesy that you might expect other people to extend to you. This can be made sure of if you keep in contact with your professional peers and stay on top of networking. This can get you the right kind of referral when you need one.

Work hard

If you want people to know about the kind of work and the level of work you are doing, never let yourself loose and always work hard. This will not only give you the satisfaction you need but also let everyone around you know that you are good at you job and you have all the tools to reach the heights in your career.

The best answer to “what is your greatest strength?” during an interview

The best answer to “what is your greatest strength?” during an interview


Guest Post | January 13, 2017 | category: Jobs

The best answer to “what is your greatest strength?” during an interview

I admit, it’s the most annoying moment when your interviewer asks you the most difficult question, “What is your greatest strength?” or “what do you think you can do best?”  There is another question that is asked during the interview that is about your weakness and what you lack as a person or what you would like to work on the most? But then again, it’s easier to present yourself as a modest and grounded person, but the difficult moment comes when you have to boost off about your strengths or what you are really good at.

Find the middle ground

If you look at it a little closer, there are two extremes that you can hit and that is the only chance for you to leave an impression on the people sitting on the other side of the table. You cannot jump into it at the moment, so, take some time and do your homework. What is it that would not sound boastful and at the same time, you have to come up with something that does not make you look as humble as to give an impression that you don’t believe in yourself. That is something you really need to work on. Nobody is going to let you handle their data or a whole wing in an office or a department if you don’t believe in yourself. So, decide what your middle ground is.

Importance of THE question

Do you really want to hit a home run at your interview? Well, there is your moment. If you understand what the answer to this question is, you can really make a difference in your interview. When you apply for any job, follow the following steps:

  1. Do a detailed research about the job and your possible employer.
  2. Understand the qualifications that are required for the job.
  3. Identify the skill you need the most to get the job done once you clear the interview.
  4. Stick to your skills and have faith in yourself and your abilities.
  5. Prepare the right way to express yourself while you clear the point in front of the interview panel.

Reviewing the jobs you apply for

When you are applying for different jobs that might fall under your qualifications, it’s not always necessary that you are going to have all the tools that are required to get the job done. By this, it is not meant that you don’t have the academic qualifications; it rather means that you might or might not have all the personality traits that are needed to tackle different tasks of that particular job.

Creating a story around your strength

You are only going to be able to convince your employer about your strength if you believe in it yourself. Therefore, it is important to create a story plot around your strength in case the interviewer asks you about your strength and how you have applied it in your life before.

Some of the strengths that you could keep in mind right from this day

Everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses and they know about these factors the best and no one else can justify or deny it for them. Given below is a list of some strengths that you need to find in yourself and these can become a great factor to lean on during your interview

  1. Whether you a good leader and can handle situations under pressure.
  2. How good a manager are you?
  3. Whether you like to take an initiative and take up new tasks.
  4. Are you good at meeting a deadline?
  5. How determined are you?
  6. Do you like to take the task right till the end and come up with quick and steady solutions while you are at it?
  7. Are you a quick learner?
  8. How flexible are you?
  9. While tackling the little details, do you see the big picture and the end result of the whole situation?
  10. Do you know all the software required to do the job at the tip of your fingers?
  11. How good are your people skills?
  12. How good can you work in a team?
  13. Can you influence people in doing better work and bringing a change for the better?
  14. How creative are you?
  15. Are you good at coming up with new and improved strategies to take the business forward?
  16. Can you work out a conflict between the people of your team?

These points can help you figure out what you are good at and what are the skills that you can improve by working on them. If you can build a story about how you used one of these skills in getting your job done in your previous job, it will help you a lot.

What if you have no pat job experience?

It is rather easy to figure this process out if you have previously done a job at a place and have applied some of these skills in getting the work done. However, it could be possible that you are fresh graduate and haven’t had the chance to really test yourself. In this case, there is nothing to be worried about, you can start today by recalling any past experiences of a project that you did in your school or college. You could also think about all the internships or volunteer work that you have had the chance to do. If you have any of these in your plate you are good to go. All the experiences of your life tell you a little about the kind of a person you are.

Conclusion

So, from all the points mentioned above, it is very clear that you have a good chance of getting the job of your dreams if you work on yourself a little bit and that is also a skill in itself; how much are you willing to grow and improve. With all these points in your head you can go and nail any interview. So, keep yourself updated and go through the sites that can help you achieve your goals. Some of the websites functioning in Pakistan are http://rightjobs.pk/, rozee.pk, berozgar.com and mustakbil.com

Government vs. Private Online Job Portals in Pakistan

Government vs. Private Online Job Portals in Pakistan


Guest Post | January 12, 2017 | category: Jobs

Government vs. Private Online Job Portals in Pakistan

Who can deny the importance of money as one of the basic necessity of life??? People work day and night to earn in order to fulfil their needs. The advent of civilization has broadened the horizons for people to work in different fields. Both public and private sector contribute to job market everywhere. Yet, the jobs only cannot provide all the population with work opportunities.

The unemployment rate in Pakistan is 5.8% according to a latest report issued by World Bank. This statistics is the number of workers from the total eligible, economically active population. This percentage indicates that around 5.3 million people are unemployed and looking for work in different fields. Around 17.8 % of the total population has access to internet services. Although that doesn’t constitute the majority of the population, yet the people making use of this facility is not nominal either.

Government Job Portals

Almost all the government organizations in Pakistan have a separate portal to announce the available vacancies in their respective organization. A few years ago, they used to post their jobs only in newspapers; but now they are making use of digital technology as well. Government departments of Pakistan that post their jobs through online portals include the central and provincial ministries, national civil services, armed forces, national industries and so on.

Pakistan.gov.pk is the largest online portal that holds information about almost all the government departments, ministries and institutions.

Private Job Portals

Private sector has witnessed boom in the recent years and so has the job market in private region. The virtual world of internet has specifically enabled skilled and knowledgeable youth of Pakistan to set up their own enterprises, hence multiplying jobs for those who have related skill and craftsmanship.

The biggest and most widely used job search engines in Pakistan are from the private sector. These online portals have satiated the need of users looking for information on available vacancies online. There are plenty of online private job portals but the prominent ones include websites like http://rightjobs.pk, rightjobs.pk, rozee.pk, mustakbil.com, roziroti.pk, byrozgar.com and many more. These websites occupy the major market share of job applicants looking for job in Pakistan.

Most of these websites rely on the vacancies published by both public and private sector in the leading newspapers as well as the official websites. The private companies and firms looking for suitable and competent candidates also use these platforms directly.

Comparison of Public and Private Sector Online Job Portals

Design and layout

Both government and private sector have the same audience to cater, yet there is an apparent difference when it comes to the web layout of the two. The government bodies’ websites usually seem monotonous and drab. This owes to the strict content and absence of all sorts of ads and such spam content.

On the contrary, the private online job search engines are usually loaded with all sorts of ads and click baits that tend to add colour to the overall layout. Because of the intense competition, private job portals keep improving the design and layout of their websites to make it look more appealing.

Navigation and Search Tools

The government sector websites are managed and run by IT departments of the respective organization. The portals are strictly used for informative purposes with no suggestions or regular updates. On the other hand, private websites are aware of the fact that if they do not upgrade and improve continuously they will fall behind in competition.

Types of Jobs

The government portals in Pakistan only display jobs available in their institutions, whereas the private online job portals flaunt almost all sorts of jobs available from all walks of life. They include vacancies in government organizations, private firms, and personal entrepreneurs. Thus catering to a far larger number of users and serving both ends successfully. Even people looking for personal assistants and aides also advertise on private portals.

Success Rate

The government sector has its own shortcomings when it comes to management and administration. The candidates applying for vacancies in government organizations usually have to wait for a long time or resort to personal contacts. Most people complain about never succeeding at securing a job when applying through government portals.

The private online job portals in Pakistan usually interact directly with many employers and the number of applicants succeeding in getting jobs through these is far higher than government portals. This also owes to the higher number of jobs and variety available on private online job portals. No wonder these websites witness such massive audiences and subscribers. People tend to take word of mouth of a successful candidate, as it is generally a norm in society. This fact also contributes to substantial increase in traffic on online job portals in private sector.

User Friendly

Most of the government websites of Pakistan have rigid design whereas private websites are usually flexible. They are user friendly as their aim is to attract as many users as possible. The websites have extensive search tools that serve the users to look for precise job in a few simple steps. The government websites usually lack information on how to and manifest the purpose of the employer only.

Applicant Database

All job portals, whether private or government, build up a database where all the information of applicants is stored. While there has been no complaint of unauthorized use of this database information by the government departments, some people have filed complaints of private job portals selling their data to advertiser.

CV Builder

An inspiring CV that holds appropriate information about the candidate is the first impression on the employer and paves way for further scrutiny and short listing. Almost all the private online job search websites come with their own tools for the applicants to generate their CV right there on the domain. However, no such facility is available on the government counterpart; most government job portals of Pakistan rely on manual input on the data by the applicant.

Applicants

The government sector jobs often advertised, cater the educated class only. The menial jobs are usually not advertised on the official government websites. This restricts the number of applicants and the type of people referring to these website in search of work.

The diversity of vacancies displayed on private online job portals is immense. Jobs ranging from the highest order like CEOs and general managers to the labourers can be found on all these links easily. Even many companies and organizations use these portals to sort out from a varied range of applicants. Most of these websites are referred by the successful applicants to friends and acquaintances.

Internet has opened new doors of opportunities for everyone everywhere. Online search engines have tremendous impact on the job market and promoted healthy competition. Both, private and government, job websites of Pakistan are working hand in hand to help overcome the menace of unemployment in our country.

You just like us have a lot to see in 2018 – but let’s get an insight into the technologies we can look forward along with commercial 5G networks:

  1. Intelligent Cars

Cars with artificial intelligence or simply driverless cars, they are designed to make human driving safe and smarter. For this entire purpose, the 5G network becomes even more imperative. The showfloor where 5G mobile network and its capabilities were shown also had various examples of Toshiba car talking to the driver for advice on navigation, safety and fuel stops.

  1. Virtual Reality

Pokémon Go is the most famous example of Virtual and augmented reality and it was also mentioned at the forum. This has already been mentioned earlier that VR would be a killer app for 5G. Next generations mobile network will make the entire process smooth with rich graphics, simply because it can transmit gigabytes of data in seconds.

  1. Video

Although this is not a surprise possibility expected from next generation mobile network, but videos will be applied in an eye-opening manner. One of the latest news from CNN’s executive stated that, cable news channel’s existence is highly dependent on the quality of the video which is essentially delivered by a 5G mobile.

Huawei Chief Executive also predicted that live video would have more popularity and will offer a a greater challenge to the traditional entertainment media.

  1. Artificial Intelligence

The show floor had a number of robots showing practical skills as helping customers and the entertainment type which showed dance moves. These robots did not just showcase robotic technology but represented everything that 5G would make possible such as machine learning and artificial intelligence. Again, next generation mobile network makes possible the sharing of huge amount of data between devices and that’s what makes robots smarter than ever.

  1. Better than Human Vision

5G is capable of presenting better than human eye image sensing, as presented by Sony. They say this will revolutionize the apps as transport, security, photography and manufacturing. Technology like this 5G will make machines do remarkable things as see through reflections in water and windows, view various parts of the picture through different levels of brightness, and detect freshness of vegetables and capture 960 frames per second.

  1. Pet Tracking

Yes, even this! 5G will not only benefit humans but pets as well. Our cute furry animals will carry a smart device for themselves that will track their movements and monitor welfare.

Isn’t life looking to feel so better? The possibilities that 5G brings are worth every-ownership. If you need assistance for mobile development and need help for VR or augmented reality services, approach Abacus Consulting for expert mobile solution services.

Why It’s Important to take Care of your Car Tire

Why It’s Important to take Care of your Car Tire


Guest Post | November 2, 2016 | category: Autos and Vehicles

Why It’s Important to take Care of your Car Tire

You can easily overlook those four patches of rubber called tires on your new drive, but it’s more important to pay more attention to them if you have a used car. Despite the car type, a few simple checks on the tires can yield better fuel economy and improved vehicle handling.

Tires mostly wear out and get damaged when you drive on inflated tires, experts suggest on checking the air pressure once a month. It’s important to maintain the tire pressure; reasons are plenty other than the risk of a blowout or flat tire. To achieve the most from your vehicle, from emergency maneuvers to everyday driving, your car tire pressure has to be at proper inflation level.

For optimal vehicle handling, tire pressure has to be checked. Because when tires are not at correct air pressure, they will result in increased rolling resistance. When tires are inflated, rolling resistance of the vehicle increases, and more energy is consumed which impacts of fuel consumption. According to a study of Motor Traders, properly inflated tires improve fuel economy by 3.3 percent approximately.

While, over inflated tires reduce the levels of handling performance since less rubber gets in touch with the road. And because of improper inflation the stress on the tires results in uneven and excessive wear. If this happens, replacement of the tires will be required, sooner than expected.

How to Check Your Car Tire Pressure

One rule to being in the driving seat is, to keep your car in perfect maintenance and if not-keep the all the necessary equipment with you and be your own mechanic where need be. For checking the tire pressure, air pressure gauge is needed. You can purchase the inexpensive item from an auto parts shop or from a departmental store.

For your car type, there’s always a specific air pressure, otherwise it is mentioned on label inside the driver’s door jamb. The pressure is expressed in “psi” (pounds per square inch). Every car manufacturer has mentioned the correct pressure for the vehicle type, both cold and hot pressure. However, the maximum pressure of the tire is usually mentioned on the sidewall of the tire which is not the inflation level for the vehicle.

For checking the air pressure, unscrew the cap that is on the tire’s valve stem, let the round gauge be placed on the stem.  Exert some force to ensure the seal is good otherwise the reading will come incorrect. Read the line and numbers on the bottom of the gauge to determine the tire pressure. If you are uncertain for the reading, let the process be repeated twice or thrice.

Repeat the same procedure for all the four tires and add or remove tire to equalize the pressure. For adding air head to a gas station and spend a quarter or two.

NOTE: Along with air pressure, perform simple tire inspection to check for tire wear. You might have foreign objects as screws or nails attached to the tires or you might even find cracks. There’s a long used trick to check the tread depth with a penny; take any 5 rupees coin and place the head side downward between the grooves of the tread at the top of the tire. If the head is obscured by the tread, you have enough tread in tires. Check for tread depth in various parts of the tire and look for uneven spots. The presence of head in certain areas is an indication for new tires.

Six Things to Do Before You Start Used Car Buying Process

Six Things to Do Before You Start Used Car Buying Process


Guest Post | October 31, 2016 | category: Autos and Vehicles

Six Things to Do Before You Start Used Car Buying Process

Recently, in an article we took from Motor Trader on “Used Car Buying Tips”, we filtered some things to share with you. This list of six things will help you navigate in the used car buying process and will ensure the purchase of the right vehicle.

But why should you consider buying tips and tricks? Well, better understood now then later-used car market in Pakistan can sell you lemons in the price of cherries and you won’t even. Buying a used car from dealership can be even tough. And if you’re on limited budget, you don’t want to drive back and go broke in two weeks because of the never ending maintenance?

Universally, September to February is the best time to shop for a used car. As it happens, now is your best time to focus on your purchase. A number of high quality used vehicles are cycling through the lot, as latest models are hitting the dealerships. It offers an opportunity to those of you who want to get a good condition car at a fair price.

So, here’s for you: the six things you can do before buying a used car.

Step #1- Separate Your Needs from Wants

This debate of “need vs. wants” is never easy to navigate. According to the tips given in the article, it was suggested that shoppers should sit in advance and make a list of all the must have points. This includes considering driving needs and lifestyle. This list will definitely set you on the track of what you need the most from your vehicle purchase.

Step #2- Cars for Consideration

With the help of the list you made, now scour the reviews and listings to identify the models you will consider. You now have many online sites to help you choose the model and compare the same with other choices available on other websites. This allows you to get your amount ready and will also enable you to enhance your knowledge for dealing with the dealership. However, do always read the reviews as given be viewers.

Step #3- Get Your Finance Ready

Not all riders in Pakistan are those that can buy every latest model that is out in market. Some people are not able to even pay the prices of a used car. Most of the dealership in used cars will not allow you to pay in loan; this might be common in countries elsewhere. For used car, either you pay the full price or if reference is involved, you can manage to pay in installments.

Step #4- Work Closely with the Salesperson

Your advance preparation, list of needs, and the knowledge of the car will help you upfront. If you know what you’re buying and how to buy the product, you will likely win the deal in your favor. While this will save time, it will also narrow down your search, just how filters are available on online sites to help you find the perfect match in no time.

Although it’s important to do your research and even know your part, but it’s even okay to relay on experts. You can choose someone close to you to analyze the car, or take a reliable mechanic, or a friend. They should be there to ask questions that you cannot ask.

Step #5- Never Rely on Just Seeing and Buying

You should never concentrate on just seeing the product and not going for a test drive. In case of a use car, the test drive has to be long enough that can help you determine the actual condition of the car. Of course talking can be over-stretched and so can the words confuse you, but your practical analysis cannot. Precisely, is this is your first time in the buying process of a used car-you should be careful and should be very picky.

Step #6- Take Your Time

No one said taking things slow was wrong. Buying a car and that a used car, it’s a huge financial commitment, the second most important commitment after a house anyone could make. You will need to make sure that you are comfortable with the vehicle you buy, by all means, and you’ve exhausted yourself in the pre-purchase process.

Remember that if you’re settling on a car, then it’s not done yet. You should go through all the history details, ask questions, test drive, and check however you want, you don’t want to end up suffering. Always step back and say no to something that doesn’t satisfy you.
