Career Advantage With Gillette-- Get Ahead Of The Game

Career Advantage Gillette
Perhaps, you just graduated from college and are now looking for a job that would satisfy your needs. You are probably looking for information about how to write a resume that would impress future employer. You are almost there, ready to catch your dream but you forgot something—how to dress up for a career advantage.

Grooming may seem unnecessary to some individuals. However, according to a recent survey commissioned by Gillette and conducted by Harris Interactive, 84% or 420 out of 500 HR professionals are of the same mind that well-groomed employees are more likely to achieve success than those who are not well-groomed.

Furthermore, the survey showed that 99% of HR professionals find proper grooming as more important than firm handshake. In order to fortify the findings of the said survey, Gillette collaborated with Mark Jeffries, a career expert, and Brett Fahlgren, GQ style correspondent, to provide expert advice for men who want to land in the job (well-compensated) that they want and for guys who want to get ahead in their current careers.

Job seekers and professionals may now review expert advice of Mark and Brett and read the Hire Guide to know what is really in the minds of HR professionals. Gillette Career Advantage provides Gillette Career Quiz that you can take to evaluate your potential.

You may visit Gillette Career Advantage to use the tools, information and advice given to help you achieve what you desire. You can also review the findings of the survey and press release and get hold of the grooming and career expert advice at Gillette Resource Center.

Swimming At Robinson's Highlands Country Club

And off we went to Robinson's Highlands Country Club, Davao City-- a five-minute drive from our house. The place was ritzy, though it needs improvement. It has a function hall for wedding reception or any social events. Downstairs, you can find their 6-feet deep swimming pool and courts for basketball and lawn tennis.

It was still a quiet place when we arrived, with only three employees present. But as we enjoyed swimming, we heard the arrival of some guests, who will be using the function hall. But we were still alone, enjoying the satisfying water temperature of the pool. However, we needed to cease our enjoyment because of the sun's painful heat and our skin color became darker—darker than tan.

Anyway, Robinson's Highlands is an exclusive subdivision for the affluent families. Inside that for-rich-only village, we saw the supposed white, glass house of the Pambansang Kamao, Manny Pacquiao, near the country club. We didn't see Manny (he's still in Baguio for training) or Aling Dionesia outside that very expensive abode.

By the way, the swimming pool fee for adults is PHP 60, while a child below 12 years old should pay PHP 40. The fee is slightly lower when you are a homeowner of Robinson's Highlands. Robinson's Country Club is still new, so the place is still clean. And we plan to go back probably in October.

Lawn Tennis…Anyone?

Lawn Tennis
I started playing lawn tennis again. Is it my way of venting my frustrations or healing the wound of my cardiovascular organ? Not necessarily. But I think I need to be out in the scorching heat of the sun often to generate vitamin D and to maintain my ideal weight in accordance with my height.

Lawn tennis involves a lot of running and strokes are different from badminton. The racquet for lawn tennis is heavier than the badminton's. This is the reason Steffi Graf or Maria Sharapova has wider shoulder and bigger arms.

Although the backhand stroke is said to be the weakness of almost all Filipino tennis players, my two-handed backhand stroke is better than my forehand stroke. And when I play lawn tennis, I am not inflammable, unlike Serena Williams who was penalized for showing tantrums over a foot fault.

But lawn tennis is not the sport of choice for people who are afraid of getting darker skin. However, you can still play this game without fear of 'transforming your white skin complexion' because lawn tennis can be played in a covered court. In Davao, the only covered court we have is in Dona Vicenta Subdivision, near Victoria Plaza.

As long as you enjoy playing lawn tennis, doesn't matter whether you will get tanned or not. What counts most is that you lose weight and gain friends.

As you know it, today is September 9, 2009 (09/09/09). This is said to be the 9th day of the month, the 9th month of the year, 9th year of the century. And its significance? Nothing (for me). They are just numbers. But it may somehow bring good luck (hopefully).

Bruno Movie Is A Porn

Bruno The Movie
That is according to Barbara Walters. And I agree with her.

Do not throw away your precious one hour or so by watching this film.

However, if you enjoy watching wagging male reproductive organ, then by all means devour your time with Bruno.

I do not find Bruno as funny either. The funny scenes were forced and the jokes didn't tickle my brain.

But I like how Sacha Baron Cohen, aka Bruno, portrayed his role. The raising of his eyebrows is just amusing.

Nonetheless, it is semi-porn. As per Barbara's advice: Do not take your kids.

But I will add… unless you can strategically explain that Bruno is just a form of art.

502 Google Server Error

502 Google Server Error

It happened this morning. Its 30-second waiting time turned out to be hours. Huhuhu...

It is frustrating to know that a fecund and powerful company like Google will encounter such a problem. What happened to the solid infrastructure of Google? Surely, I cannot solely depend on this company with admirable reputation.

Truly, I cannot always rely on today's technology. :(
