LOOKING FOR A JOB? WHERE DO YOU GET THE NEWS?

www,domain,internet,web,netImage via Wikipedia
Are you looking for a job? Whether you like it here in the Philippines or outside abroad, it’s always good to have fast and credible sources of information about job vacancies and opportunities. So where are you getting the news?

The Classical Way—Friends

Probably the oldest method of trying to have the information about job vacancies is through friends and acquaintances. Though much slower than the modern web-based information dissemination, friendly referrals are still effective today. In fact, many people agree that they even trust more the information coming from a friend than in the newspaper and on the internet.

The Semi-Classical Way—Newspaper Classified Ads

Most of us today still cling to our old method of finding job opportunities by scanning through the “Classified Ads” section of our favorite newspaper. We’ll, just like the “friendly referral way”, newspapers still proved to be an effective source of information. And personally, nest to “friendly referrals”, it’s the second trustworthy source of job opportunity scoops.



The Non-Classical Way—Internet and the Web

Well, yeah, emerging in popularity and usage, web based job information can be a very quick source of information. With a one-time registration and submission of your resume, you may now gain access to email notification about the latest news on job vacancies and opportunities. Internet-based job search companies normally filter the emails in such a way that those that will reach you were just the ones that fits your profile. For example, if you are an engineer, you may only receive email alerts about jobs related to engineering.

The need to keep on guard!

Always watch out for those persons and entities whose goal in life is to use other people for their own sake even if it entails hurting them. Here are some tips that may help to avoid them.

1.  Do not supply information to anyone (people or organization) whom you do not know and trust.
2.  Do not give in to those who ask money in exchange for job information. Most of these were scams.
3. Do not divulge financial information like credit card number and bank accounts. I’m 100% sure that these are not needed for a job application.

Here’s my list of internet email subscription. I personally trust these sites.

FREE Calls to Your Favorite Fast-food Chain on Globe Phones

In the age of mobile apps and ordering via internet, people are increasingly going from "calling" to "tapping and clicking" their fast food orders. The arrival of Honestbee, Foodpanda and just recently, Grab Food is a testament to how much this trend is growing. The visual effect these apps provide has a huge advantage over voice only "call".



In an apparent attempt to pull back some users in using the hotlines, Jollibee Group teams up with Globe Telecoms to allow free calls on their Globe handset to order from their favorite fastfood. Yes, even without a load, you can make a call to the Hotlines. Here's the promotional poster.

Just dial these numbers to order:
Jollibee - #87000 Mang Inasal - #71111 Chowking - #98888 Greenwich - #55555 Burger King - #22222

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad recently needs to have a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. So I made a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, turns out, it depends on many factors such as which part of the body is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast" wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information this technique of adding contrast is know as Gadolinium Contrast Medium. It adds cost to the procedure but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis.

So, in my father's case, we had a Prostate MRI and I assume it's without contrast since he was never injected with the "contrast" chemicals. We got it in i-Scan Healthcare Inc here in Quezon City. The cost is 13000 Pesos. Please take not that the amount was just for the scan and the result will be read by a separate professional. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e. the reading) and t…

SCAM: My First Scam Text This Year; 850000 Pesos from GMA Kapuso Foundation

It's a brand new year for everyone, including local scammers. And despite all the efforts by PLDT and Globe Telecom to curb text message scammers, from time to time, they still creep out and show up in our inboxes. And as hard to believe as the messages of winning some great amounts of money is the fact that there are still people who believe them. I personally know someone and that scam text message triggered events that turn her life upside down. So my point is, we still need to be careful regarding these scam messages. The danger is real!


So without further ado, here's the scam message I received a few days ago. On Sunday, January 7, 2018 at exactly 3:33PM (PH time), I received this message from a certain Atty. Jhon Acosta with phone number 09552962911
