What are the 4 Key ingredients for a successful interview?


Hi everyone

As you may or may not know, I help people who are redundant to get back into work through my websites http://www.beatredundancyblues.com and http://www.beatredundancyblues.co.uk and my other blog http://www.beatredundancyblues.wordpress.com

I currently teach Blogging as an aid to recovery for the Recovery Learning Community, for the NHS, as a self-employed person. Tomorrow I have an interview to work for the NHS Staff Bank as an employed person. This means I will have two employed jobs and still be self-employed. In effect, I am applying for my own job, but as an employed person. I had to fill out a 15 page application form and provide 12 pages of supporting information. It took me about a week and a half to do this because of  working at my full-time day job.

There are 4 key ingredients to having a successful interview, the 4 Ps as I call them. Learn what they are in this video.

If you found this video helpful and you would like to see more videos you can subscribe to my YouTube quirkybooksTV channel by going to http://www.youtube.com/user/quirkybooksTV and hitting the subscribe button. I have 6 subscribers so far, 5 of whom are followers of this blog, thanks so much to Al, Ste, Mike, Mr Lattimer and Ralph. You rock!

Don’t worry if video is not your thing, I will still be writing lots of posts and sharing other bloggers’ fantastic posts.

Don’t miss my written post on Monday 26th of May, I have a treat in store for you, an Author interview with Ian Kane.

Write soon

Blogging as an aid to recovery – Their journey has just begun


Hi everyone

As you know, I teach Blogging as an aid to recovery. Check out one of my student’s “about me” page and show them some blogging love. Click the “About” link below.

About.

David studied journalism and has 8, plus another 3, kids. That’s a lot of kids. Click on the link to read more.

It’s my last teaching session on Monday 10th March for this term, and it has gone very well. Better than last time. The students ask me lots of questions, I am learning more about WordPress and I love the interaction. I am blessed to be able to teach and empower others and to learn from them.

Blogging as an aid to recovery – How has it helped you?


Hi everyone

I published this post recently but it would seem that it has posted in the month that I first started to write it in draft form. This may have caused you to miss it in your reader and so here it is again.

( A huge thanks to Ralph, from bluefish way.com who left a comment on the original post. It will be a huge help to my learners.)

It’s official, amongst everything else I do, I am a Tutor for the RLC (Recovery Learning Community).

I will be teaching my first course, “Blogging as an aid to recovery” on the 18th and 25th of November and 2nd of December.

The RLC provides a range of educational, practical and creative courses, for students with mental health difficulties and their family and friends who support them.

I will be teaching students how to start a WordPress.com blog of their own, that they can continue to use after the course has finished.

I will be teaching students how blogging can make them to feel better and improve their quality of life through:

  • Building online relationships and friendships.
  • Communicating with like-minded people.
  • Improving communication skills.
  • Building confidence and self-esteem.
  • Giving them something to focus on.
  • Giving them a sense of purpose and a reason to get up in the morning.

Plus loads more fantastic reasons.

I would love for my students to know how blogging has aided your recovery. Please leave a message in the comments section so that I can share your story with them.

Thanks in advance.

Stay positive.
