Turn weaknesses into your strengths during job interviews

Westhill Westhill Consulting & Employment Australia releases the following advice on turning your weaknesses into strengths during job interviews according http://www.aerotek .com. These tips hopes to help job seekers from Australia who wishes to work in Southeast Asian countries such as Jakarta Indonesia, KL Malaysia, Beijing China, Singapore and many more. During almost every job interview, the interviewer will at one point ask someone trying to find a job what their biggest weaknesses are. While it can seem like a harrowing question, there's more to gain by taking responsibility and answering the question honestly than trying to avoid it, and working to own the situation can have long-term benefits. The first thing to consider when faced with this question is that it isn't necessarily a bad thing, according to US News and World Report. Does the interviewer want you to reveal your darkest secrets, or are they simply trying to determine what you specialize in best, looking to see how well you know yourself? In many situations, interviewers aren't quite looking for strengths disguised as weaknesses, but instead an honest recollection and reflection into your own work ability. As a result, it's important to be honest yet remain within the image of yourself you've built up to that point. When considering this question before the interview itself, think about different weak points in your work history and try to determine what can and can't be changed about them - but knowing your weaknesses isn't what hiring managers are looking for. http://westhillcon /about.html  (Apr 8, 2014 | post #1)

Plans for a single visa for Southeast Asia countries unve...

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations is planning to adopt a single visa system enabling people to visit any of the group’s 10 member states on a single visa. Following the lead of Europe’s Schengen single visa system, Jakarta, Indonesia-based ASEAN believes that a single visitor visa policy would enhance the tourism experience in the region, boosting arrivals to member states. ‘The plan is realistic, action oriented, attuned to the global realities and designed to ensure that the ASEAN region can continue to be a successful tourism destination,’ said Thong Khon, Cambodia’s minister of tourism. It fits with the group’s Tourism Strategic Plan 2011/2015 which aims to promote the region as a single tourist destination, develop a set of ASEAN tourism standards with a single certification process, enable tourism employees to work in any ASEAN country, and create a single tourist visa policy.
