4 Steps To Job Hunting Success

Guest Post Written By: John from Home Loan Finder.

When you are a graduate searching for your first real job -- you are on the threshold of opportunity. You are taking the first step into the rest of your life, the world is your oyster...and you're sick of all of the motivational cliches. While to your parents, teachers and mentors this stage of your life is an exciting and momentous one, for you this is just the next day, the next week, the next year of your life and turning point or not, you need to get out there and start earning some real money.
Following are comprehensive tips which will help you with your job hunting if you are a graduate, minus the cliches.
Before You Start the Job Hunt
Before you start looking for the right job for you, you need to be prepared and have the right mind set. For example, there is so much bad news out there about the job market that it can be easy to give up your search before you've even begun. However, rather than being worried about how the state of the economy and the world has affected the job market, and letting that stop you from applying, take a look at what really is out there, before assuming that there really are no jobs available.
Also make sure not to burn any bridges as you commence your job search, and keep your position in the workplace, even if it is only in part time work as an intern. Even work experience which isn't directly related to your field of study can help you with your job search, because it can demonstrate your reliability and work ethic. This includes volunteer work and unpaid internships which can look good on your resume.

"Charged and Ready": Sony Vaio S-Series First Impressions

How many times has it happend to you? You’re at school all day taking notes (and checking Facebook) when your battery starts to run out. Reaching into your bag, you grab for your charger only to realize that you've left it at the dorm, leaving you computer-less for the remainder of the day. Well, hopefully with the new Sony S-Series notebooks, that will be a thing of the past.

I have been given a great opportunity to review the new Sony Vaio S-Series notebook in a program called “Charged and Ready,” which focuses greatly on the fact that with this computer, you can get up to 15 hours of battery life with an optional battery pack (pictured on far bottom right below).
