While every country has its own quirks when it comes to recruiting for law jobs there are some things that are the same the world over. There are lots of traps to fall into that could prevent you from getting that international law job you have always dreamed of.

CV Lacks Focus – You have to think of your CV like an advert, it’s selling you as a candidate to you potential employer abroad so it’s important it’s got a clear focus. Decide exactly what you would like the reader to come away from your CV thinking. You can then focus every element of your CV towards this aim. Don’t include anything unnecessary and keep the document brief.

CV Hides Key Skills – If you are applying for a legal job your relevant qualifications & experience is hugely important. Don’t hide them away at the end of your document. It’s a sad truth but often recruiters don’t read CVs in that much depth and often lose interest before the end. Don’t let important information get lost at the end of your CV.

Over Used Template – Nearly everyone uses Microsoft Word and lots of people use Google. So imagine how many people use the templates that are easy to find. In a competitive job market, like law, there can often be a large number of applicants for a position; anything you can do to help your CV stand out can help your prospects of getting a legal job abroad.

Application Not Addressed to Correct Person – It’s easy to make a mistake when you are sending out lots of job applications especially if you are planning on relocating to another country. However addressing your CV to the wrong person could instantly ruin your chances. The obvious solution might seem to be to send your applications to a generic “Dear Sir” If they have included a name on the advert such a tactic is likely to seem impolite and suggest you don’t have a huge desire to get the job.

Typos and Bad Grammar – Probably the most repeated tip when it comes to CVs and covering letters but Typos and Grammar mistakes can be really costly. Double & triple check it. It is always worth getting at least one other person to give it a quick proof read a fresh set of eyes will spot mistakes you never would have seen.

Untailored Cover Letter – There’s nothing wrong with sending out a generic CV, there are definite benefits to tailoring the document to each job but it’s not essential. On the other hand you must tweak your cover letting for each individual job application you make. Show why you would be the perfect candidate specifically for the job advertised. Use the same phrasing as they have used and you could be on the way to a great international law job.

Special Education Degrees

Do you want to teach children and adults with physical and mental disabilities?

Do you want to provide direct guidance and assistance to individuals with learning difficulties, especially for those who cannot participate in the phase of normal education?

If your answer is yes, then having a degree in special education is the next step in achieving your goals.

The special education degree is a set of specialized educational and institutionalized training methods and programs required by individuals who want to teach special children and youth. Teachers are required to further develop their skills and level of experience in terms of handling individuals with special needs. Mainly, this education encourages direct exposure and interaction with special children and enables their specific needs to be identified.

There are lots of schools and institutions that offer degree programs in special education. They can vary from institutionalized learning methods, student behavior management, student-teacher supervision, specific areas that cover pragmatic methods and solutions for effective child education and more. Often, it is required that the teacher is a licensed professional to ensure competency in the field, although there are also specific institutions that require a master’s degree for final admissions.

Choose the degree that will supplement your previous background. Research the school you intend to enroll in. Narrow down your goals and objectives.

If you can, obtain feedbacks from work groups and individuals who have completed the program you are interested in. Check the program’s weak points that need improvement to have a more direct approach in dealing with special children.

College Football Helmets – Its Evolution

Football is one extreme contact sport. It may not be as fast or as furious as the usual racing games you seen but it definitely has a unique notch of action on its own. This is precisely why helmets are necessary when playing football. Both amateurs as well as professional players of the said sport can be seen donning this specific protective gear on before setting off to play the game. However, there are specific characteristics possessed by football helmets. They generally have a face mask, a chin strap, and even a mouth guard that comes as an optional feature.

All that have been mentioned goes the same with college football helmets. Apart from being just a protective gear, it can also be said that college football helmets are being worn for their aesthetic effect. Every football helmet comes emblazoned with the particular team’s logo. This is essential because it helps coaches identify their players while on field and referees find it easier to record down playing technicalities while every one is out there on field.

College football helmets were not as complex as they are right now. Football helmets actually started way back in 1915. These old types of helmets are very basic looking. They are even simply made out of leather. They are also made with a flat looking top design which can be likened to the ones professional wrestlers have been using. Back then, the main purpose of these helmets was to protect the player’s ear from any damages. However, the lack of ear holes on the helmets has proven communication to be difficult when these old helmets were used.

So through time, helmets have evolved and improved until the National Football League has required football helmets to come with a face mask. From then on, college football helmets have also adapted this particular technical requirement for the games they have held. Nowadays, leather is not the main ingredient of college football helmets. It is now polycarbonate which is being widely used in making such helmets for football.

In addition, college football helmets have also taken into consideration the need for constant communication while on field. Football, after all, is a group sport which calls for much coordination within the team. What happened instead is that these football helmets have changed its design from flat top into a more oval structure. According to studies which have been conducted, this oval shape of college football helmets actually helps a lot in protecting the head from too much impact. Moreover, an inflatable bladder is also now being used to provide more protection for football players while wearing a football helmet.

Then eventually, the chin strap has also been developed as professionals felt the need to secure that these football helmets are safely held in place. This is important especially for a contact sport like football wherein unpredictable actions can happen. College football helmets really did evolve through time. From its humble beginnings, people have realized the need to improve …

College Coaching

Do you coach college tennis?

Because if you do, you will want to read this article.

I would like to talk about college tennis coaching and the problems that I see happening in it now.

Many college tennis players will not be playing professional tennis, and that should not be their goal for going to college.

The goal is to reach their full potential as a player.

I have been watching video of college matches and teams and asking around to a few Japanese players that played in the US.

My next step is to go to a US college tournament and get a close-up view, of what is happening and then I will be able to make some more suggestion for them.

But, for now, there are a few things that I can address in this post.

And I hope you will share them.

They are.

College coaches need to make sure that the system that they have in place, is helping their players reach their full potential.

That's really all that matters.

"If not, revise your system today or create a better one for next season."

The ideal situation is to keep updating the one that you have in place right now.

College coaches have to step up their coaching game, so we can get more of these kids ready for the tour if they have the game for going that far.

Speaking of which.

Players should leave early, but only if they are mentally ready !!

"The level is so different and stronger on tour, but all college players who are dominating their opponents or the league they are playing in, can leave after 2 or 3 years and take their game to the tour."

The other problem is,

I wish coaches would understand that.

They are not coaching tennis at this stage of their careers.

What they are actually coaching is the mental game.

And most do not have a clue on how to coach it, instead, they are full of themselves.

Seriously, I watch these guys and hear many of them talk on Social Media.

So, this is something that I know about first hand.

All these guys need to start studying the mental game more, even become a student of coaching it and learn how to master coaching it.

And they should do this before they do anything else in their careers.

They owe it to their players, schools and the game itself.

Let's leave it there for now, shall we?

Bottom line,

They have to drop their EGOS and start focusing on getting results !! …

Sex As a Natural Treatment For Gout

I wanted to laugh when I first came across this rather ridiculous suggestion on some of the online sources about natural treatments for gout. After the initial state of skepticism, I decided to do some study about this interesting topic about having sex as a natural treatment for gout.

Well, it must somehow works on some of the gout patients until this method is widely spread as one of the treatment option for gout. Some people think it works, but they just cannot explain how it works on reducing the inflammation and pain of the notorious gout attacks. Before I explain how to have good sex as one of the method of treating your gout, you must first understand the chemistry of sex.

We all know about the temptation and good feelings that good sex gives us. That is part of our natural instinct, and having a healthy sex life plays an important role in maintaining the well being of our body and mind.

Scientists call sex as a melting pot of the soup of bio-chemicals, the hormones. This scientific statement may somehow kills away some of the romantic side of sex, but whatever you feel as the result of sex can actually be explained by simple science. It is not a matter of what happens between your legs, it is about the chemical reactions happen between your ears.

There are a few vital hormones that contribute the pleasures (and pain relief) we feel during sexual intercourse. It starts with dopamine, which is one of the brain’s pleasure chemicals. Dopamine is released in the ‘reward centre’ of the brain when we see something that arouses our desire, such as good food and attractive partner. Dopamine increases the pulse rate and cardiac functions which result in the ‘blushing’ effect in some people.

During sexual orgasm, your brain will push the amount of dopamine to the max and then bring it down right after the climax with the release of prolactin which prevents you from over indulge in the rush of dopamine. Prolactin rises sharply immediately after orgasm and it is what gives you the “full” feeling after your intimate moment. Prolactin disengages you from sex after orgasm and makes room for your mind to think of other things besides the naked person lying next to you.

Beside the roller coaster ride of dopamine, there are two other sex related neurotransmitters that contribute to the whole sensation of sex. Oxytocin, which is also known as the “cuddling hormone” is a hormone secreted by the pituitary gland when you feel the affection to someone you love dearly. Oxytocin helps in creating a strong bond between you and your lover.

Oxytocin stimulates the production of endorphin which is the ‘happy neuro chemical’ that produces the feelings of ecstasy and pleasure. Endorphins fill you with a sense of well-being and relaxation, and sometimes might even drift you off to sleep. Endorphin has a similar chemical structure of morphine and that explains why it has the …

The Internet Lifestyle For College Students

The reality that most college students are facing when they graduate from school are either.


They will not be able to find a job.


If they do find a job, it won’t be the one that they want to work at.

Which is why starting an internet business in their dorm room and working on it around their schedule is the best option for them.

Many go out and do part-time work, but that is really a waste of time.

Students would better off using that same amount of time to working on an internet business that will start bringing them in passive income.

There are 2 types of income that you can earn.

Active income- the amount you are paid for by the hour for being there.

Passive Income- money coming to you, whether or not you working or not!!

See the difference?

Your main goal in your career is to set up a business that allows you to earn MASSIVE passive income daily!!

This what the schools aren’t teaching their students and it is a huge problem in our society.

Okay, now that you understand the difference between active and passive income.

Here are the 4 steps to starting your online business from your dormitory and living the internet lifestyle.

1). Target a market or niche.

2). Set-up a 1-page opt-in site.

3). Drive a lot of traffic to that site.

4). Monetize that traffic.

This is an outline of what your internet business should look like.

Now, let go little more into details here about each step.

Targeting a niche.

Do your research and find out what type of problems your classmates are facing in school or look to find a product or market that is being underserved.

Once you find it.

Go get a product or service that can solve that problem.

It’s really that simple.

Also, make sure that the market you choose is full of hungry prospects.

Because the market will always determine the niche that you choose.

After you find your affiliate product.

Buy a domain name and set up a 1-page site.

You will need to write up a short 12-page report that you give away to people who opt-in to your newsletter.

Your report must be of value to your prospect, because you want to build trust with them.

Next, do videos to drive traffic to your site.

I would interview experts and then link your site in the resource box.

Start a Facebook group as well.

Write a few articles or share some in your newsletter.

The next thing is to start making money from all your previous efforts.

You should have already signed up with a ClickBank/Commission Junction and any other affiliates.

It’s free too, so don’t worry about that.

I like to contact companies who don’t have an affiliate program and then help them create one and create a distribution channel from it.

Look, this is just an outline that any college student can use.

Keep …

Effective Cover Letters for Teaching Jobs Abroad

When you are getting serious about landing a teaching job abroad you need to consider how you are going to do it. Are you going to register with a international teaching job fair organiser like Search-Associates? Are you going to register with The International Educator (TIE) and get international teaching job alerts emailed to you daily? Are you going to trawl the internet for vacancies?

Whichever strategy or combination of strategies you choose to implement you will need to write an effective cover letter that sells you as the ideal candidate.

A great cover letter draws the recruiter in and leads them through your information and inspires them to look at your resume. It introduces you, outlines your experience and states why you are the best candidate for their position.

When writing your cover letter keep these suggestions in mind and you will increase the effectiveness of your letter:


While most recruiters are clued up enough to know that you are probably applying to more than just their international school, it is not good practice to make it obvious. When you write your cover letter you should include a sentence or two about why you want to teach at their school. Reasons you may include are; you have experience in the curricula offered, your children have experience in the curricula offered, you like teaching in small (big, single sex, co-ed) schools, or you have heard positive things about the school from other international teachers.

When you are differentiating you letter, address it to the recruiter if you can find their name on the website or from the advertisement and include the name of the school and location. These small, easy to implement ideas are the key to making each recruiter feel special and show them that you are interested in a job at ‘their’ school.

Be Selective and Adjust Accordingly

If you are job hunting as a teaching couple you need to have a couple of cover letters, or have paragraphs that you can cut and paste to make sure it is targeted. As a teaching couple you will ideally want to get a job at a school that has vacancies in your main teaching subjects. However, you may not be so lucky.

Teaching couples should lead with the strongest candidate and emphasise the experience and flexibility of the other teacher. For example, if you are a teaching couple with secondary maths and an elementary generalist you can apply for schools with openings in either of these areas. For an international school with a vacancy in the elementary school you would outline this person’s experience first and then you would discuss the maths teacher’s experience both in maths, in leadership, in extra curricula activities, etc. And vice versa if you find a school that has a maths vacancy.

Often school recruiters will do some ‘creative shuffling’ if they find a teaching couple they think will suit the school especially well.

Short is Best

Keep your cover letter short; leave …
