15 CV TIPS: Make RECRUITERS pounce on you like DOGS ON BONES
Pre-sript- The links in this post will take you to some invaluable articles. Please do click on them. I have spent quite some time researching for this piece. Links at point 3 and 15 are specially brilliant. Some of you might like to move straight over to point 11, from where the advanced tips start.

Anyone can make a good CV provided you are ready to work for it. Paths are made by walking, not waiting. Touche.

1.) Learn Great English. Learn to speak english, write english. Learn how English eat, blow their noses and clean their bottoms. But to remain cultured, stick to the Indian culture. It is better, politer and more suave (Poets tend to be chauvinists).

However just to pin- prick your pride here is Wikipedia's article on 'Hin'glish. Don't make the silly mistakes pointed here. BTW as I said, poets are chauvinistic; if you prick my pride with a pin. Ouch! It swells!

2.) Intern in every possible break. Intern after college hours, if possible. There are also online internships possible.

The online internships offered by the National Judicial Academy, Bhopal and the Volintern program of Nishith Desai Associates are doable.

3.) Research. Write papers. Write professional blogs. If you want to get into a corporate firm write on corporate law. If you IP is your field get cracking on IP topics. Look for call for papers here. (In your comments you may thank me for this link).

4.) In summers do summer courses. In winters do winter courses. With all this workload you will not remain a SPRING CHICKEN. But still, try doing a SPRING course.

Soon from a chicken you will turn into a hen. An egg laying hen actually. If you do not change, you still will be a productive chick. In your CV you can be really cocky about this.

WIPO has summer courses on IP law. ISIL has a course on international law…...

5 Tips for Creating a Better Cv

...advice, like ‘don’t make any spelling or grammar mistakes’, ‘no waffling’ and ‘tidy format’, there are a few other ways you can create a great stand-out CV. The Daily Business Post asked Stephen Quinn, CEO of Jobbio, an Irish-owned online hiring platform, for some tips on creating a CV that will stand out to any hiring manager. “In an employer’s mind it’s not just about the success you have had leading up to this point, it’s about applying those experiences to potential future roles,” Quinn said. 1. Be Inventive “The future of recruitment can’t be word documents and bullet points. People have too much more to show and say; whether it’s campaigns they’ve worked on, blogs they’ve written or even their Twitter feed,” Quinn added. Companies tend to get huge amounts of unsolicited CVs, but when they’re actually actively hiring, that number jumps significantly. Making yourself stand out in the crowd is vital. Given the number of CVs a hiring manager is going to be looking at in one sitting, you won’t have very long to make yourself stand out — probably only about 20 seconds, Quinn said. 2. Be Positive Irish people typically are terrible at talking themselves up. It’s time to change that, said Quinn. “A lot of people are too modest in what they have achieved and what they can do. Irish people are naturally self deprecating. We should really be taking a page out of the book of our uber-positive neighbours in America where everything is awesome and uplifting.” Remember, you......

How to Make a Boy Like You

...HOW TO MAKE HIM LIKE YOU Sometimes you think you’ve tried everything possible to get that heartthrob’s attention but nothing seems to be working. You walk a little faster in the school hallways just to get next to him. You even spend a little extra time in the mornings just to impress him. Yet he doesn’t see you or even notice all your effort. From research and experience these tips have been tested and proven to get the attention of every and any boy out there. Smile at him. No one can ignore a cheerful girl. So if you happen to run into him in the hallways or bump into him at lunch give him a big but subtle smile. That would help to relax the atmosphere and make him notice your willingness to talk to him. It also sends a message that you are a warm and inviting person. Also everyone knows that happiness is contagious. Give him a nickname. Get on friendly grounds with him by giving him a cute and flirty nickname. When you share inside jokes with him it will instantly boost familiarity and immediately escalate “flirtiness”. And if things actually work out and you become a couple, you would have a nickname for him with history. Tweet at him. You could try getting his attention on social media. Send him a friend request and try texting him once in a while. This way you know each other a little better. This helps a lot especially if you’re a shy person and find it hard to approach him in person. Also reading his posts on the internet really gives you an......

Live Like a Dog

...------------------------------------------------- Live Like a Dog, Alone. 1. Give a summary of Live Like a Dog, Alone. ‘’Live Like a Dog’’ is a story that takes place in a cab in the middle of London. In this cab we meet two persons with very different opinions on how to observe life. We meet the cabdriver who is a refugee and Miriam who is a fifty-five year old stressed British woman. The cabdriver admits that he is as lonely as a dog, but Miriam tries to cheer him up. Miriam had just been picked up at the hospital. She suffers from heart attacks because of her stress and work. As we gets deeper into the mind of Miriam, we get to know the true story of her. She is lonely just like the cabdriver and that is why she decides to offer him a cup of coffee and see where it will lead. Despite the fact that she has an idea about it. 2. Characterize Miriam and the life she lives. Miriam as person can be described quite accurate with two quotes: * ‘’Thoughts are the shadows of our feelings – always darker, emptier and simpler.’’ (Friedrich Nietzsche) * ‘’Do not give in too much to feelings – A overly sensitive heart is an unhappy possession on this shaky earth.’’ (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe) The reason why this describes Miriam quite well is because of the fact that she has two sides. She has the confident and positive side and the more darken, lonely side. When in public, she tries to show the positive way of living and actually tries to make it better......

As You Like It

...As You Like It presents an ideal world, just as The Merchant of Venice did. The Forest of Arden has as much romance, as many delightful lovers, more laughter and Joy. Lamb, Charles and Mary. Like A Midsummer Night's Dream and The Merchant of Venice, it is built by means of two worlds: the world ruled by Duke Frederick and the world of the Forest of Arden. Lamb, Charles and Mary. The effect is not the "separate but equal" envelope structure of A Midsummer Night Dream, nor the interlocking and necessary alternation of The Merchant of Venice; instead, Frederick's world first seems dominant and then dissolves and disappears into the world of Arden. Lamb, Charles and Mary. Its life seems to be in the play not so much for itself as to help us understand and read its successor. There is a set of contrasts between the two worlds of this play, but the contrasts are describable not in terms of opposition of power, as in A Midsummer Night's Dream and The Merchant of Venice, but in terms of attitudes of the dominant characters, as in Much Ado About Nothing, and in terms of differences in the settings and of changes in behavior for those characters who are part of both worlds. Lamb, Charles and Mary. These contrasts are easy to describe because Shakespeare points the way clearly, making each world an extreme. Our approach will be to examine the qualities of Frederick's world, then to examine the qualities of Arden, and finally out of this contrast to see how the characters behave......

How to Make People Like You

...How to make people like you? So you want to know how to make people like you? It's easier than you think. Here are six research-backed tips: 1. Encourage people to talk about themselves It gives their brain as much pleasure as food or money: Talking about ourselves — whether in a personal conversation or through social media sites like Facebook and Twitter — triggers the same sensation of pleasure in the brain as food or money, researchers reported Monday… "Self-disclosure is extra rewarding," said Harvard neuroscientist Diana Tamir, who conducted the experiments with Harvard colleague Jason Mitchell. Their findings were published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. "People were even willing to forgo money in order to talk about themselves," Ms. Tamir said. [The Wall Street Journal] 2. To give feedback, ask questions If you use questions to guide people toward the errors in their thinking process and allow them to come up with the solution themselves, they're less likely to feel threatened and more likely to follow through. It's not you searching for problems; it's him searching for gaps in his thinking process. You want people to look for assumptions or decisions that don't make sense upon further reflection…The more you can help people find their own insights, the easier it will be to help others be effective, even when someone has lost the plot on an important project. Bringing other people to insight means letting go of......

How to Make People Like You

...what rebellious 15-year-old you might have said). The basics of getting people to like you are obvious--be nice, be considerate, be a decent human being. Those things are all true. However, there are also many smaller, more discreet things you can do that can have a huge effect on how others perceive you. Most of these tips are little techniques you can implement every day. They may seem insignificant or even silly, but give them a try and you might find yourself becoming exponentially more popular. 1. Use a Person's Name Let's face it--we're all huge narcissists and we all love the sound of our own name. Learn names and make use of them. Always use an individual's name in a conversation. A classic from Dale Carnegie's famous book How to Win Friends and Influence People, this tried-and-true technique is sure to increase your fan base. 2. Smile--With Feeling! Although we live in a digital age that increasingly substitutes technology for human interaction, we are still at our cores very social creatures. As humans, we use social interaction as a tool for feedback, and we make a lot of conscious and subconscious choices based on how others engage with and respond to us. When someone offers a huge grin brimming with authenticity, happiness rubs off on its receivers. There have been many studies showing how mood, whether positive or negative, spreads between individuals. If your positive attitude brightens someone else's day, that person will love you for it. 3.......

Dogs, Human-Like Characteristics

...English 111.0016 8 September 2015 Dogs, human-like characteristics Dogs are cute, loving and playful just like little children. They seek attention and require lots of love and patience. They are like little time clocks, they know just when to wait by the door for their owner for a hug or to go potty. They are very territorial and sometimes over-protective. Dogs, like humans, exhibit emotions, often suffer from similar medical conditions or ailments and love unconditionally. One major characteristic of dogs’ human like behavior is that they exhibit emotions. For example, Barkley is a huge Bernese mountain dog. He weighs 140 pounds but is afraid of anything that walks. Although he loves the outdoors, he spends most of the summer indoors because of the heat and because he is terrified of thunderstorms. He literally cries and trembles during a storm. His owner has to reassure him that it is going to be okay. If they are watching television then Barkley is there by her foot only because he is too big for her to hold. He also sleeps in the same bedroom as his owner. Duncan is a very friendly Beagle who is also terrified of storms. His fear is so severe that his owner has to medicate him during a severe thunderstorm. Duncan is a mommy’s dog and always wants his way. He throws a fit if he is unable to ride in the front seat when they go on trips. Duncan throws tantrums often. Believe it or not, Maria Rosa is the smallest and the meanest of all the dogs. Maria Rosa is a cute......
