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.

In these times of increasing unemployment rate, it’s time to take action to get the job first. And the first step is to KNOW first. Best wishes to my readers!

4 Steps to Replace Stolen or Lost Passbook

My passbook (inside my bag) was recently stolen inside a local grocery store, and I would like to share the steps I took to secure my account and get a new passbook.      By User:Aerous ", CC BY-SA 3.0 , Link The steps outlined here are for a BPI savings account, but generally, the procedure will be very similar to other banks in the Philippines. 1. Call the Bank to Secure Your Account The first and most crucial step you need to do immediately is to contact your bank by phone or personally report it to the branch where you opened the account. This action will ensure that funds will stay put. The bank will lock the account immediately. The big banks have 24/7 hotlines. For BPI, it's 889-100.

Resigning? SSS Will Deduct Your Loan Balance from Your Last Pay

The purpose of this article is to inform the public about this policy of the Social Security System (SSS), the government-owned insurance company for those employed in the private sector. I just learned about this a few months ago when my company announced a workforce reduction program. Among the sad discussions is about this policy of SSS regarding loans in cases of resignation or retrenchment. Section G-2 of the SSS Loan Terms and Conditions (at the back of the loan application form) explicitly says the following: "The employer shall deduct the total balance of the loan from any benefit/s due to the employee and shall remit the same in full to SSS, in case the member-borrower is separated voluntarily (e.g., retirement or resignation) or involuntarily (e.g., termination of employment or cessation of operations of the company)." In other words, y ou will be required to pay the rest of your loan (including the interest) when you change employer or employment statu

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad needs a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. I did a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, it depends on many factors, such as which body part 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 known as  Gadolinium Contrast Medium . It adds cost to the procedure, but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis. MRI Machine KasugaHuang , CC BY-SA 3.0 , Link So, in my father's case, we had a  Prostate MRI,  and I assume it was 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 note that the amount was just for the scan, and a separate professional will read the result. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e
