Charlotte NC jobs – Application Tips

resumesSome would say that under this tough economic condition, our nation is in and the world in general, any season is job-hunting season. The same can be said in the state of North Carolina. The news has shown that in this month of September the unemployment rate for the state is slightly improving. Although it is not by much, comparatively to the rest of the nation, the state of North Carolina is doing well.

Statistical data has shown that many people coming into the state are moving in with the idea of getting a job in mind. In fact it is one of the driving force that makes the population of Charlotte (the capital city) continue to grow.

Being tech savvy my goal on this blog post today is to give out tips to you dear readers on how to maximize the internet in finding Charlotte NC jobs. Although many know how to use the internet; many browse it all day; they know how to fill up log in information; people know how to look at look at job posting sites; yet I cannot tell you how many people have come to me running for help. The reason is, when all your life you’ve been using the internet as leisure, that might prove to be a hard bad habit to break once it’s time to use it for professional application instead.

Here are some old proven tips to increase your chances on being hired by an employer substantially through online means:

Attaching a Resume

job huntingWhen attaching a resume to an email, make sure that the filename for the resume is professional. Don’t attached a resume that is not labeled properly. For example: “documents.doc” sending out a resume or any document for that matter doesn’t relate positive thoughts to an employer. It relates that you are either unorganized or unprofessional – turning them off. Name it like so: “LastnameFirstnameResume.doc”. It is also best to save it as a PDF file so whoever receives it won’t have to worry about document processing software version.

Subscribe to Charlotte NC jobs posting sites

A common mistake of people is to just look at websites which posts job vacancies when in fact you can do something smarter and subscribe to the feeds. This way, you’ll be notified via email. When you are notified through email, you’ll have more chances to be first in line in application since we tend to check our email more regularly.

Get Connected

Twitter Job HuntFollow the profiles of job posting sites and companies you want to apply for on social networking sites. Many job applicants leave this out of the equation but the stream of updates on their timelines on social network are consistent. This way, you’ll always be in the loop when there is a vacancy coming your way. Another benefit is that you get to know what kind of company you’re dealing with.

Finding a job out in the open is tough. Every little advantage you can get sometimes is enough difference to be up the application list.


Tips on Moving To Charlotte NC

English: View of the Elizabeth neighborhood of...Charlotte Is a city that is rapidly increasing its population in effect of the financial capability the city has been enjoying. Because even if the greater part of America is downsizing, Charlotte NC is one of those city experiencing growth. Its many sectors in business have raised the quality of living in the area and other cities close to its borders cannot help but notice. As a result, the influx of people moving in to find work or to move closer to a job they already have are some of the most common sight one can see in the city these past few years.

While it can easily be treated more like an adventure, and I’m sure most certainly look at it that way, moving into a new apartment or a house can get ugly and stressful quickly. If not properly planned, your dream can easily turn into chaos.

Now if you are moving to Charlotte NC, I would be more than happy to provide you some tips that I’ve discovered to prevent chaos from ever stepping in with what should be a pleasant experience. If you are thinking whether I’ve learnt these through my own experience; my answer is – I won’t tell.

 Call me old fashion but have a checklist

Moving to a new place brings out inexplicable emotion from excitement, thus we are at our most disrupted state. Every task needs to be laid out in writing with due dates if you can. These rules out the possibility of you forgetting things, unless of course you didn’t jot it down.

Pack organized

Start packing the ones more important such as documents and label them in bold letters. The sooner the better so you don’t get crammed when the date is only a few days away.

Take care of basic services and utilities

Make sure that before you get to the new place, basic services and utilities like electricity, water, internet, gas and phone are already working. The last thing you want is to not be connected when you’re at your most vulnerable because believe me, you’re going to have to make phone call as soon as you get settled.

Get supplies

You’ll be surprised just how many resources moving can take. Get lots of boxes in different sizes and colors if you can. Pens, newspapers, bubble wraps etc… will all come in handy when the day draws near.

Get help from the professionals

Chances are even with all tips I’ve given, you’re still going to leave something important. Make sure that you don’t do everything by yourself. Ask for help, and is there someone else who knows moving than the movers themselves. They probably do this every day, so be sure to ask them for more pointers.

Moving smoothly to Charlotte NC is what you want to do. I’ve been there and here are the ground work on what you will need to do. After a day or two, familiarize yourself with your location. Knowing where the grocery is, transportation and banks would further enhance your outlook on your new place.


Suite Charlotte NC Review

Charlotte, being that it’s one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S has many glitz and glamour waiting to be found. Although the city is well known for the job market that is obvious during the day time, at night the city is also capable of putting up a whole new different face to greet the the pleasure seekers at that time of day.

During the day, when most of the population works and get them busy with the tasks that produce income for them, life seems to be spent away. Especially when you’re a young professional who has just started with his job not a good 5 years yet. These years are in fact considered some of the most crucial. It may not pale in comparison with the middle aged years which we have heard so much about.

 

I still remembered how my life was on this period. Work wasn’t exactly that tough since you’re still filled with energy. Once you get past the learning curve of your duties it becomes pretty much a breeze. After just a few months it feels like you get exhausted more with the lack of fun and excitement rather than the real work load. Like me, when you’re at this stage, this is probably the first time you’ll meet with repetitive work and boy I’m sure you’ll despise it. I know since it has taken me years to shave off that feeling. Not that it’s a terrible thing for anyone; it’s just that sometimes this feeling is what keeps us from being consistent; and so it’s in times like these that there is enough reason to find something which will jolt our senses every once in a while. Others from outside our circle should understand that we live during a time when we are barely out of the freshness of school and into the dull life of being a professional. I know this is the perfect time for an anecdote but I can’t think of any right now.

Having been living in Charlotte for several months now, I can safely say that this city has managed come up with the sparkle that the 20s something needs. Suite Charlotte NC is the city’s most exclusive nightclub. It is well known throughout and even outside the city for its great feel and powerhouse DJs which really are the top two reasons why we choose to go to a club.

Charlotte Stokely.. Taken at the Adam and Eve ...If you want to get further details here are the qualities that make up its good feel:

  • top of the line sound system and lighting
  • exclusivity ambience since there is a dress which allows no sneakers inside
  • world class amenities and service
  • world renowned VIP section

Also, partying and dancing has never been so easy since each visit would be a delight if you’re selective of your music. Because of the superior artists embodied in the DJs that raises the floor with their music, one will be assured that music entertainment would not be a problem inside of the Suite!


Top Sectors with Jobs in Charlotte NC

Kodiak High School students job shadowMoving is one tough choice to make. Choosing which neighborhood or what city to move into can arguably be tougher. It is a dilemma that one leads to the other. And the two are just the beginning; seeds if you will that would sprout too many branches of problems. All of which requires attention and research to be solved.

Employment is the aspect of living that we are all having problems with under this tough economic condition. The rate of people having sufficient income from their jobs is falling, not to mention the statistics concerned with people who have jobs at all. It seems that many of the important metrics of a nation is falling during a recession period such as this and it forces people to make tough decisions.

There was a period when Charlotte was known as a transportation hub and jobs centered on that. Of course in recent times, it has been a well-accepted that Charlotte is a city where the banking industry reigns supreme. And the jobs that industry has provided made it clear to America that the city is now one of the 10 fastest growing U.S. cities.

As we were talking about how employment is currently a huge influence of anyone’s decision making process when making a choice on where his next location to live may be, jobs in Charlotte NC have more than done their part on attracting talent. The population of the city has bulged through the recent years because of the many job opportunities.

Technology can also be attributed for the current influx of talented people in the city; besides what good is a job opening when no one about it. Online job posts are very easily identifiable and many have turned their gaze on the internet to see where their new destination would be. IT is every bit correct to use technology this way because its original vision anyway is to assist mankind on undertakings such as this.

If you are someone who is eyeing a career, Charlotte NC is a good place to be. There are plenty of sectors which are booming in growth. Obviously there is the banking sector which has matured enough that it has spurned enough growth to revitalize the whole city thus providing demands to a lot more other industries.

English: Duke Energy Center and The Westin Cha...

Here are some industries you can expect a career from in this city:

Banking – national and local banks have either called the city their home or have established a regional office in it.

Food and restaurant – there is never a shortage of places to eat here. Hence, employment of the food and restaurant sector is always open.

Energy SectorDuke Power has been a big player in the employment market for a while. This entire boost in business made the city power hungry and there are many jobs that have spurred from it.

Real estate – as more people prefer more to move over to Charlotte, there is no better industry to take advantage than the business of helping people find their new homes or apartments.


A Lesson About Photography in Charlotte

Let’s face it, if you want to get something done you always want to do it yourself. People who are confident enough of themselves (like me) far too often charges at every tasks as a challenge. That is just how some people are hard wired. But recently, during an event photography in Charlotte; I’ve learned that having that mindset doesn’t always work on your advantage.

To paint a better picture, I’m going to tell you something about myself; since I’ve already stated that this post has something to do with a fairly typical human reaction. And yes, having a difficult time trusting a task to another soul is a reaction. In no way or form would I agree that having this in someone’s personality is a deficiency. Although there are some “psychotic gist” err, ‘psychologists that deems it as so. I refuse to allow others on treating this personality that I have of something close to a disease or sickness. There will never be a time where I will not be willing to get into a debate about why I choose to take most of the responsibilities even when sometimes tasked with a team.

Photography is a precision business. Although it might have sprung out from hobbyist, the techniques and studies of all photographers that came and went is enough to fill a humongous library. There is now enough knowledge, technique and history in photography for it to create another branch of science. That is why the once hobby is now a full time profession. It is a career where the clients can easily decipher which photographer is the season one and which are the beginners based on their works’ results (and not on the paycheck they will request).

Professional Photographer-1

A professional photographer is someone who has spent much of his time perfecting the meticulous demands of the business. One of the most challenging thing as a potential client is to choose who should cover such important events of your life. The number of phony would-be photographers who are posing as professionals out there is enough to get someone who doesn’t have much patience to lose it faster. But somehow as a person who has a valid reason to hire a professional, somehow you have got to find a way a longer piece of string as patience to come out of your event as a happy camper. I learned this the hard way. As I’m sure you have already imagined; this semi rant post is about the moral lesson a person learnt by committing a mistake.

I did come out a smarter person because of the experience. I did learned, (although it was too late) that in order to figure out the professional from the who’s not you got to have the patience to browse at a prospect’s portfolio. It may sound silly to you, but a lot of people forget to turn on their computer and check if the claim of someone has some truth into it online. A professional should always have his work displayed online. That is already a well-accepted fact.


Growth of Charlotte Jobs

Flag of City of CharlotteFamously nicknamed as the “Queen City”, Charlotte, North Carolina was named after the wife of King George III. This was during the time when the city was still occupied by the British command as one of United Kingdom’s colony. Charlotte is a city which has quite an area and is in fact the 20th largest city in the entire United States. It is a city with one of the fastest growing population and has sustained the tremendous rate of population growth rate since 2006 when the metropolitan had it in its census that it is home to more than 1 and half million people.

The city has become such an established financial center of the United States, and when based on assets of all the banks that call the city their headquarters, Charlotte only trails to New York in terms of being the home of some of the largest banks. The city’s skyline have benefitted immensely from the boom of the financial institution situated within the metropolitan. It has spurred countless other businesses because as we all know bank is the primary cultivators of commerce. The growth in the city’s banking institution sector also gave way too many other industries relocating to Charlotte because of the financial opportunities continuously rising in the city. There are even fortune 500 companies that came with these waves of financial growth which the city’s population has certainly enjoyed.

English: Looking south from Top of the Rock, N...

As the industries are thriving with their business, career opportunities are of course brought to the scene. Charlotte Jobs multiply each day that passes those businesses still sees this city having a large number of opportunities. Having these waves of companies coming over and introducing new business for the city is always going to be a winning situation for the population, as this will inevitably create more Charlotte jobs for everyone to have a decent source of living. Some of common occupations available for the people of Charlotte are management posts for the businesses we have told you about sprouting everywhere; also all the other profession that is needed to put up an adequate business operation are also added to the mix. Careers in sales would almost certainly be beefed up as well because of the growth of commerce. In come the real estate industry and the diversity of jobs necessary for it. Today we can see right in front our eyes the blossoming of a city because of the harmony of business and people. Having enough inflow of business thus presenting people with occupation and people coming from across the United States to seek opportunities in a city that has got a lot of momentum are two factors which are always nice to balance between your hands.

 

Statistics have shown the climb of percentage in the number of jobs in the city of Charlotte. The median household income of the city is also in the climb. These two areas are closely being monitored by everyone who follows financial news and would hopefully ensure the continued progression the city is enjoying as of the past few years.


Events in Charlotte NC

April Fools, Facebook StyleAs someone who is involved with events in Charlotte NC, I am very pleased with how Facebook changed its interface. The change is a huge upgrade indeed. If it still hasn’t reached you profile yet, don’t fret, for it soon will.

You probably have done quite a number of guesses already since I haven’t mentioned it yet right?

Well the wait is over folks!

Facebook has finally added a calendar every time someone wants to look at some events. You know a calendar. That thing composed of pieces of paper hung somewhere on a wall in your house with dates on it. It has actual dates in boxes so you can write things in it so you would be able to see in a chronological order the events that you might not want to miss. It’s been around for eons and its usefulness has been passed down through generations. Apparently these factors still aren’t enough to persuade Facebook to add it a long time ago like they should have done.

Facebook is only the largest social networking company in the world which boasts about a billion user accounts around the world. You’ve read that right, the figures for Facebook has already blown through the roof that it doesn’t concern itself with millions anymore but with billions! Recently Facebook has now added a calendar view in their user interface to better help people managing events. Although it’s been long overdue and has taken a lot of public outcry first; many still gave r positive reviews about the changes they rolled out. The only negativity that people are saying right now is that the update is so recent in fact some accounts might not even feature it yet.

Monket CalendarLet us not forget as well that other than the “hackathon” (letting Facebook know that the people are screaming at them for not having it), one important thing that occurred that many consider as the turning point on how Facebook changed its views it Google plus’ introduction of their own event view. Oh what great things competitions brings! I figure this change will do wonders on how fun managing events would be like from this point.

There is a worthwhile event right now I think. It’s the launching of “The Dark Knight Rises “by Christopher Nolan. This would be the first day I’m going to try out this new event layout created by Facebook then. Fun to see how my friends’ reaction to this would be like; this will probably be the first time they would see this upgrade as well.

Glad to see Facebook has already seen the obvious. I know it had taken many of us to tell them what they’re missing, but you know that it’s better late than never.  Although for a company is worth many billions of dollars, I don’t think that excuse is valid for them. Try it out if you have it, if not you’ll just have to wait a few. I’m sure you’ll find it pleasant and much more fun to interact with which is really what social networking sites are supposed to do.

Charlotte NC Events This Weekend

English: Wishbone Ash at outdoor rock festival...A tourist’s heart is meant to always capture the best out of his destination. Every place has a personality of its own, if you are one of those who are not looking at travelling at this perspective, then you’re missing out on something special.

I remember the last time I went out for ride. Every once in a while a guy needs to quench his thirst for adventure. Every once in awhile you have to act on your most inner yearning for travel and not stop at just listening to it. The experience was refreshing I can tell you that. Anytime you meet a place, and you become acquainted with its secrets and somehow you fall in love with it, its magic.

A guy has to work hard to earn a living. Day in day out all throughout the week most of us sweat it out for our own respective reasons. Monday is usually the first day we start our labors and each day becomes worse than the previous. We might not realize but there is pain that is left inside deep in us. Stress as we often pertain to it gets to us which causes other illness. Learning how to get rid of stress we have accumulated from work, problems and through our daily lives is an important aspect of the adult life. A good strategy to make it through the week is to get out to places and catch some events. If one inserts a fun time in his week cycle it only means that he cares enough with his own well being.

The city of Charlotte, North Carolina has certainly a lot to offer for any visitor and for the local inhabitants. One’s imagination is the only limit on what to do on the weekend on a city at Charlotte’s scale. Charlotte NC Events this weekend is as filled with fun filled events as it would be on the next weekend. One has only got to find the resource on how to be updated with the happenings of the city. Every night there might good live music played just around the corner to keep anyone who seeks good music as company at night. These kinds of places are of course also the venue from where one can meet actual people who pretty much has the same interest since you all met at the same place and time to do the same thing probably.

Where else can one find such ever changing information than in the World Wide Web? It is as easy as typing a few word as queries and search for the upcoming events that you surely don’t want to miss this weekend. After that, since almost everyone has a smart phone, he just simply needs to type it in his planner so he could be alarmed when the event draws near. Also, the vast information being posted regularly at social networking sites that I’m sure you have my dear reader could also supply those needed answers for your upcoming events questions.


Charlotte Event Planner – Budget

Growing up, I was enthralled in building computers. At a young age (my teen years) I was already engaged on educating myself on how this technological marvel works – although my father did not approve any of those learning because the curriculum mainly is comprised of me breaking our home computer down.  I remember back then a computer’s capability is many times less capable compared to the machine we now have. Nonetheless, I still find deep fascination with those machines I dismembered. Some I was able to put back and some never made it back to life again.

As the years pass, the success rate of me putting a computer back to its norm has steadily increased. Even without professional guidance, I was beginning to feel confident that somehow my skills are growing as I am. When internet finally reached our home, it would further throw more firewood at my furnace. Learning became much easier when you’ve got the experience of people all around the world backing you up. And so as I look back, I guess it was really my calling to be around computers. From the destroyer, to the enthusiast, gamer and now an internet freelancer; the learning I got from computers is irreplaceable.

I have mentioned all that and even got to pass points in my life because it is somehow related to the topic of why anyone should hire an event planner. As I have discussed, the background I had with personal computers gave me the expertise with the particular subject matter; thus I have developed a keen eye when people make a mistake about it all the time. One example is when I walk inside a tech shop and I find a store employee stuffing all these hardware to build a pc for a customer which has no idea he doesn’t even need have of those in his machine. The employee probably does that to gain incentive but it is wrong in so many ways.

Hiring an event planner especially in our very much eventful city of Charlotte gives us the luxury of avoiding such mistakes – assuming that you’ll get a legit one, but that’s a different topic. One reason that you should get yourself a Charlotte event planner (which is often thought of as being a complete opposite) is budget. You might think it doesn’t sound right but keeping with your budget is an advantage of hiring yourself a GOOD event planner, it always has been. Go back to the previous example I mentioned with computers. Think about it, with the numerous details one has to think of involving an event; you’ll always encounter someone, someplace and something which would force you to overspend. Then let’s add the fact that you’ll always want to impress your bride, family, friends, clients, colleagues or whoever is invited with a particular event. Having an expert by your side is always a good thing. He can act as an agent, plus the fact that as a planner he does have the years of experience to back him up. His experience can help you navigate around the city so you can stick with your budget.

Choices of Charlotte NC Events

As tourist you want to get the most out of wherever place you will be staying at. One has to ask the question of “what’s the point of travel if you will be doing the same things you’re doing at home – which is nothing”. What this means is that effort and energy spent on travelling is usually a well spent bargain that any traveler would be happier to part with. No one is more willing to scour the land of whatever spoil there is to cherish as much as a traveler or a tourist.

English: Charlotte Bobcats Time Warner Cable Arena

A tourist doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to be from out of town. Its definition suggests that but its essence tells us there is something to it more than being from another place. I for one is a person whose been living in the same town for roughly 20 years. I have been on this town where I’m living now for a very long time and still there are places in here that has besieged to impress me. I still consider it a town which maintains wonders that I haven’t discovered yet, restaurants that I have yet to try out their best meal perhaps hidden someplace unknown to me and my friends but in any case does exist. Every once in a while I do stumble upon such kind of adventures, that is why I won’t even go discussing about the more expansive province this town is located on.

World famous whitewater rafting in the Valley.

Charlotte, I’m sure is a city that would do its best to provide a constant supply of excitement, adventure and events for everyone. You do not have to be a tourist from someplace else because even the locals do not know what fun activities will be held someplace a month from now. If we are to talk about Charlotte NC events, then we are talking about schedules that are as shifting as the sand. There is simply no way to get a hold of everything months in advance because frankly it hasn’t happened yet so no one can be certain.

The perfect place as an example is the schedule of events held on the Time Warner Cable Arena. There are very competitive sports events held in here as well as concerts from the most popular icons of the music industry. The internet does everything it can to get everyone updated, but of course not all people have the websites that posts these events on their bookmarks.

There are countless ways to find satisfaction from travels, adventures and events in Charlotte. From restaurants worthy enough to be shown on television to river sports which includes white water rafting; the choices a person is going to choose from is as diverse as the local delicacies which would definitely entice anyone’s taste buds. If one is up for adventure, there are ship wrecks diving to explore. The experience one would surely get out of that is way past excitement. The history and the underwater views would simply be breathtaking from everybody’s opinion. In fact, with all those choices, it’s just a matter of where to go next.
