10 Items That Job Seekers Hate, Part 2

10 Items That Job Seekers Hate, Part 2

LinkedIn, Indeed.com, Monster.com., Glassdoor, and CareerBuilder.com are just a few of the many job search websites in existence. They are effective and efficient ways in landing your next job or achieving your career. Job seekers use these methods as much as they look through job application print ads. But they are as many pitfalls that affect these seekers as they pursue the next best job.

What are these hurdles affecting potential job candidates you may ask? This is the second part of the continuing topic “10 Items That Job Seekers Hate,” or at the very least strongly dislike. Here is a list of the remaining six out of 10 items that job applicants dislike.

6. Contact information on the website does not work. After the seeker prepares to send the cover letter and resume, the contact info does not work, so the applicant has to do item No. 5, that is search feverishly to find a working email or link to the job application.

7. Grammar issues, typos, or huge white spacing. Career experts advise job seekers not to have the aforementioned issues, and the result will be no response. But some applications and organizations are guilty of having similar problems.

8. Paywalls or Application Fees. The “No. 1 Rule” for job seekers is that you should never have to pay in order to get a job. Some websites that facilitate job candidates ask the aforementioned clients that they should pay a premium price to get more access to a job. This does not 100 percent guarantee that the seeker will get the job. The fee simply gives he or she more access.

9. If you have a certain illness or sickness please check the box. At some organizations, with online applications, the seeker fills out all of the info digitally, uploads the cover letter and resume, and then there is the final part. The company displays a list of illnesses and mental disorders, including cancer or HIV/AIDS. As seekers we all want to be transparent, however, what does one’s mental state or health have to do with a job? And why is this -private and confidential info the company is asking for – necessary to be shared and put on record at any organization that may or may not hire you? Is this legal, discriminatory, ethical or unethical?

10. No Response from Job Applications. This could arguably make some applicants anxious, especially when there is no indication from the organization the application was received, or not. Seekers always do follow up, but in a digital age most organizations issue a notice of receipt promptly.

10 Items That Job Seekers Hate

Job seekers have scoured hundreds of job applications, online and in print, to know that it can be tedious, and yet rewarding searching for that next potential job. And, they have read and memorized the do’s and don’ts of what is acceptable in the never-ending job search, such as “not too much white space on your resume,” to “when applying try to mention the contact person at the job so that the cover letter stands out,” just to name a few.

Processes like these have become etched into the minds of job candidates. But what about the hurdles that can be time-consuming, and frustrating. As a result, some organizations could lose potential and future employees.

What are these hurdles? Here is a list of the first five out of 10 items that job applicants strongly dislike.

1. Entering of digital Resume information, twice. First time, the seekers enter their name, work history, education, etc. A second time, uploading the resume, the info that has the same as the first. It seems like a lot of companies use a computer system that helps them capture the potential candidates they want, without having to go through the arduous process of reading hundreds of applications. But this system is arguably antiquated for the seekers, it has to be updated.

2. Description of the Company/Organization’s work environment before the actual job. Sometimes a company can showcase how great their organization is for two to three paragraphs, before the application. In other words, the seekers have spent a considerable amount of time reading about the organization, before the application and the duties are mentioned. If career experts tell those applying that we should get to the point in the cover letters and the resume, why is it challenging for some businesses to reciprocate the same.

3. No Cover Letters, only Resumes. Seekers will fully cooperate with posting or uploading his or her resume. However, as everyone is aware job seekers also write cover letters for every job they send out. In the current job climate, a lot of companies do not facilitate the uploading or posting of cover letters.

4. Creating an account for a job application posting. This can be just as time-consuming as No. 1.

5. No access to send job applications. It can be very challenging when one cannot get to an access point – such as an email or the company’s website, especially when it is not posted in the application. With no way to answer the posting the seeker has to do double work in sending the relevant information i.e. searching and hopefully finding the right contact link or email.

Save The Date! Who Needs The ‘Justice League’ When You Have This Amount Of DC Superheroes

With the DC comics Extended Universe, (DCEU), films in full swing with the “Man of Steel,” “Batman v Superman,” and now for the holidays “Justice League,” here are another set of superheroes from DC comics where you do not have to leave the house to view. 

The heroes from across four of The CW/DC shows can be mostly seen in the photos above. One hundred photos have been released by the network, we will only focus on a few. One could argue that this is another form of the “Justice League.” 

Let us take a look. From the first photo, top right, are the Atom with Supergirl aka Kara Zor-El and Felicity Smoak. Then from top left, in the waverider – the “Legends of Tomorrow” time machine, are the Stars from “Arrow,” “The Flash,” and “Supergirl,” including non supers like Iris West, Alex Danvers, Harry Wells, and Heatwave. From “The Flash,” Killer Frost will be fighting alongside the heroes. (See the full list below.)

Also featured on the waverider are the Ray and Citizen Cold from Earth 53/Earth X. 

Cliff notes version of what to expect on the two-night crossover event, the heroes and anti-heroes from Earth X come to our world with their Nazis to fight and destroy the supers of National City, Starling City, Central City, and perhaps all of time and space. Not pictured are the anti-Supergirl aka Overgirl, anti-Arrow aka Dark Arrow, or the “anti-anti” Reverse Flash aka Dark Flash; these anti-heroes are the enforcers for the Nazis that inhabit their world. Basically on Earth X, both world wars have been lost, and all of humanity is living in a dystopian future. 

There is hope however, with the Ray and his teammate Citizen Cold that try to help everyone they can. 

It all starts this week on Nov. 27 at 8pm Eastern Time, on “Supergirl,” then at a special time following the last daughter of Krypton is “Arrow” at 9pm. Then on Nov. 28, Barry and Iris are finally getting married on “The Flash,” all at 8pm Eastern Time. At 9pm the same night is “Legends of Tomorrow” ending the story arch.

Only on The CW.

List of superheroes featured in the photographs: 

From Earth X: The Ray, and Citizen Cold.

From “Supergirl”: the last daughter of Krypton, and Alex Danvers.

From “Arrow”: the highly skilled quill and bow hero Green Arrow, Felicity Smoak, Mr. Terrific, Black Canary, and Wild Dog. 

From “The Flash”: the scarlet speedster, Iris West, Harry Wells, Cisco Ramon aka Vibe, and Dr. Snow aka Killer Frost. 

And from the “Legends of Tomorrow”: the Atom, White Canary, Heatwave, Zari Tomaz, Amaya Jiwe aka Vixen, and Steel aka Dr. Heywood.

In Case You Missed It, the battle between the anti-heroes from Earth X with our superheroes from Central City, National City, Starling City, and all of time and space, is almost upon us. 

When? A two-night crossover event starting on Nov. 27 with “Supergirl,” and then “Arrow,” at 8pm and 9pm respectively. Then the next night – Nov. 28, sees “The Flash” at 8pm, then followed by “Legends of Tomorrow” at 9pm. 

Who? As you can see in the above photos are our heroes from “Legends of Tomorrow,” and “Supergirl.” But we finally get a glimpse of the ones fighting for Nazis as well as against them on Earth 53/Earth X. Those with extraordinary abilities on Earth 53 are anti-Supergirl, anti-Arrow, and the “anti-anti” Reverse Flash, among others. The ones fighting for the side of good are the Ray (in the middle second row), along with Captain Cold. 

The Ray has the powers similar to that of the Sun: flight, strength, etc. 

What and Why? It is unclear why the Earth X people are in our world, and why they are even interrupting Barry and Iris’ wedding. But all of the heroes team up once again to fight against evil. 

Where? It all takes place on The CW.

Save The Date! More From The Upcoming Two Night DC & The CW Superheroes Event

 A Wedding, superheroes and villains, and Nazis. This is what consists of the two night premiere – starting on Nov. 27 and ending on Nov. 28 – where the four DC superhero shows crossover.

The super Kryptonian and her friends (“Supergirl”), the man with the killer bow and arrow skills, along with his team (“Arrow”); as well as the extraordinary heroes from across time and space (“Legends of Tomorrow”), all come to Central City to attend the wedding of the ages, the nuptials of Barry Allen and Iris West, team Flash.

These are more photos of the big night. They are at least 100 photos, but we only had time to go through a few of the ones that present a larger picture of the four story arc that will start from “Supergirl” and end with “Legends of Tomorrow.” 

From what we can see, Kid Flash aka Wally West, will be making an appearance at Barry and Iris’ wedding.

The plot for this big superhero crossover: heroes and anti-heroes from Earth 53 aka Earth X, invade Team Flash’s wedding, and it is up to all of the heroes who are there to stop it. Earth X is a world where we lost WWI and WWI, and it is people with extraordinary abilities that are the enforcers for the Nazis. Working fo the wrong side are the anti-heroes, such as Earth X’s Supergirl, Arrow, and the Reverse Flash just to name a few. But there is hope, the Ray and his friends who try to help refugees fleeing the occupation. Think of it as “The Man in the High Castle,” but with superheroes.

The Ray has similar powers to that the Sun: flight, heat, etc. Also fighting alongside the Ray are Captain Cold, played by Wentworth Miller, as well as Winn Schott, yes that Winn the whiz kid from National City. 

So mark your calendars on Nov. 27 at 8pm Eastern Time, “Supergirl” starts off the night. Then at a special time following the super Kryptonian at 9pm is “Arrow,” just for that night. The next night on Nov. 28, at 8pm Eastern Time, at the regularly scheduled time is “The Flash.” Then ending out the night is “Legends of Tomorrow” at 9pm. 

All of this excitement will take place only on The CW.

A Wedding, superheroes and villains, and Nazis. This is what consists of the two night premiere, starting on Nov. 27, where the four DC superhero shows crossover.

The super Kryptonian and her friends (“Supergirl”), the man with the killer bow and arrow skills, along with his team (“Arrow”); as well as the extraordinary heroes from across time and space (“Legends of Tomorrow”), all come to Central City to attend the wedding of the ages. The nuptials of Barry Allen and Iris West, team Flash.

The line up has changed in previous crossovers, and the challenge appears to be bigger for all of the heroes.

Before “Supergirl” and “Legends of Tomorrow,” the crossover event was only on “Arrow” and “The Flash” for at least two years. By year three, we saw all three shows – including “Legends,” working in tandem. In fairness, “Supergirl” came late to the party only as per scheduling, and it was not a full crossover. Although, they were two joint episodes with the scarlet speedster, and the girl from Krypton.

On Nov. 27, the show kicks off with “Supergirl” at 8pm Eastern Time. On that same night, at 9pm, the “Arrow” will follow just for that one night. Then on Nov. 28 at 8pm Eastern Time, “The Flash” will kick off the wedding. Also on Nov. 28, at 9pm, the extraordinary heroes “Legends of Tomorrow” will arguably round out the two-night event.

As far as the story goes, the anti-heroes from Earth 53/Earth X, will crash Barry and Iris’s wedding. It is unclear who will be kidnapped. All we know is that Earth X is a place where the Nazis inhabit their world, kinda like “The Man in the High Castle” but with super heroes. The anti-heroes of Earth X are Supergirl, Arrow, etc. But they are heroes fighting against the occupation, making his debut is The Ray. The Ray is a superhero imbibed with Sun like powers. Also on The Ray team is Captain Cold, played by Wentworth Miller.

Think of all the human atrocities that took place in WWI and WWII, occuring on Earth X. It is up to all of the heroes to get involved.

All of this will take place only on The CW.

Gabby, The Tenth Doctor, And The Monsters Of Night: Summary & Review Of Issue #2 

Gabby, The Tenth Doctor, And The Monsters Of Night: Summary & Review Of Issue #2 

And the last stop is…Gabriella “Gabby” Gonzalez  in distress from working two jobs at both of her family-owned businesses. But what she is seeing – on a near empty train – is not a hallucination as a result of stress. It is real, and so is the Tenth Doctor helping her. 

The pair of them and others are being chased by a monster, but this monster is a twisted version of Gabby, in Issue #2 of Titan Comic’s “New Adventures With The Tenth Doctor: Revolutions of Terror, Part 2.” 

See Gabby and the Tenth Doctor run. Picture the Doctor and the Latina from Brooklyn jumping off the last car as the train arrives in the oncoming station. Envision the monster giving chase to the pair and trapping them. With quick thinking, thanks to Gabby, the Doctor suggests “Don’t look at it. Don’t shut your eyes. But whatever you do, don’t look at it…” and Gabby pulls out a mirror which stops the monster. 

The Doctor tells Gabby to go home and seek safety, but Gabby cannot unsee what happened. The pair unexpectedly meet up in Gabby’s family-owned laundromat. The man from Gallifrey explains to Gabby that he is the Doctor and that strange things happen around him. He also shares with her a device that he uses to view beyond the light spectrum. 

With the Doctor’s special device, he explains to Gabby and she sees that they are celestial creatures (pranavores) living and evolving amongst humans and complex organisms on all planets with intelligent life. Every planet with life and an atmosphere has a psychosphere: a “cauldron” made up of thoughts, and extraordinary sensory perception activity outside of human perception. Within this plane these pranavores are simple, non threatening beings that magnify the empathic fields and feed off of positive emotions. 

As Gabby witnesses the pranavores, she also sees something else: sinister hunters and predators attacking the pranavores, they are cerebravores (the bad vibes). The Doctor tries to communicate with them to stop, but to no avail. The cerebravores use a three stage form of assault: attack and consume the pranavores; harnessing the pranavores’ telepathic abilities, the cerebravores pyschically attack humans by using their own fears against them. And thirdly, they use the human hosts to consume other humans.

The Doctor and Gabby seek refuge in Gabby’s family-owned laundromat where it all first started. At the laundromat, Gabby and the Doctor have their last stand with the cerebravores. The Doctor uses the washing machines as an interdimensional portal to travel to the night creatures’ origin, while Gabby must stay in the laundromat and protect it from attack. They both do battle on two fronts. 

The writer Nick Abadzis weaves another fast paced story. Also the artist Elena Casagrande, and colorist Arianna Florean, along with her team, draw with incredible style and vividness. This is an exceptional continuing story. Stay tuned for more as the Doctor and Gabby face off with monsters in the laundromat.
