provides job interview tips, advises on interview questions and answers and how

job application listen to Magda’s 5 Top Tips on how to have a successful
Tip number one.
Present the best of you. Remember the first impression is a lasting impression.
Look smart, professional and do something that puts you in a great mood before
your interview. Be confident, positive, motivated and smile.
Tip number two. Mind your body language. 55 percent of your
communication is your body language. Remember to use open gestures,
maintain eye contact and build rapport with your interviewer. Come across as
someone they would want to work with.
Tip number three. Put
the right message across. What would you like your interviewer to know about
you? This is a perfect opportunity for you to convey that message. If you focus
on it, you will create a strong image of you and your value to your potential employer.
Tip number four.
Research the company. They will ask you how much you know about them.
Regardless of your position, it is vital to know what they do or make, how long
they have been around, their culture, goals and future plans. Also, anything positive
which is in the public domain will be a great material for your interview.
Tip number five.
Prepare a list of smart questions. The question you can be sure to expect is: do
you have any questions to us? Here is another opportunity for you to show your
real interest in the job and the company. Impress your interviewer by asking a
well-researched question about their organisation. Another good idea is to ask
about the results they expect of you.
If that isn't enough for you, another good source of
information is the National Careers Service website. As Magda Tomaszewska indicated you
need to prepare for your interview and since some questions come up time and
again – usually about you, your experience and the job you are applying for - there is no excuse not to be prepared. To
see a fairly comprehensive list of the 10 most common questions you can expect
follow this link to the National Careers Service.

Colour is more important to your business than you might
think. If you get it right you can influence your customers positively but if
you get it wrong your business will suffer as you give out the wrong message to
the wider world about your brand. The colours you use can significantly
influence potential customers when they judge you, your company and your product.
Apparently almost 85% of consumers claim the colour was the primary reason why they
bought a particular product. In the case of Heinz they made an extra $23m by
changing the colour of their ketchup, but more on that later. Colour can also
help create the story about your brand. If someone has no prior knowledge of
your business the colour and design of your logo will influence their
perception of your brand. Changing the colour alone can also change the brand
With the importance of colour in mind I spoke to

If you have ever climbed a ladder you will know that it can be an unsettling experience and sometimes downright dangerous. So it is good to find ladder safety accessories and devices that work, are easy to use and are NOT one of those use once and put away and forget gizmos.
A Scottish company has
developed and patented a new ladder safety accessory called Ladder Grips, which
will soon to be available direct from their website laddergrips.com.
You can watch LadderGrips' new corporate video here.
I met Bobby Park, the inventor, who told me about his ladder safety
devices and even took me to the Ayrshire factory where Ladder Grips are being manufactured. Bobby
told me that Ladder Grips are a unique new ladder safety accessory for the
workplace and home and that, size for size, no other ladder safety devices or
accessories provide the level of safety or versatility. The key feature of
Ladder Grips that make it so powerful in improving ladder safety is the formulation
of the rubber pad. …
