This book shows today's job candidates a new, more targeted way to write resumes to get them back on the same playing field with the best employers and improve their odds of winning the job they want. The system an employer uses when filling jobs has changed significantly in the past few years, and it is still evolving. Rather than simply looking at an applicant's past jobs, companies are instead looking at candidate's experiences in certain key areas including measurable work habits and the personal skills, known as competencies, used to achieve objectives at work. Competency-Based Resumes offers you a new and effective way to create resumes that emphasize the knowledge, skills, and abilities that you have and employers need.

Cannibal Tours and Glass Boxes

The Anthropology of Museums

Page: 230

View: 4543

Cannibal Tours and Glass Boxes poses a number of probing questions about the role and responsibility of museums and anthropology in the contemporary world. In it, Michael Ames, an internationally renowned museum director, challenges popular concepts and criticisms of museums and presents an alternate perspective which reflects his experiences from many years of museum work. Based on the author's previous book, Museums, the Public and Anthropology, the new edition includes seven new essays which argue, as in the previous volume, that museums and anthropologists must contextualize and critique themselves -- they must analyse and critique the social, political and economic systems within which they work. In the new essays, Ames looks at the role of consumerism and the market economy in the production of such phenomena as worlds' fairs and McDonald's hamburger chains, referring to them as "museums of everyday life" and indicating the way in which they, like museums, transform ideology into commonsense, thus reinforcing and perpetuating hegemonic control over how people think about and represent themselves. He also discusses the moral/political ramifications of conflicting attitudes towards Aboriginal art (is it art or artifact?); censorship (is it liberating or repressive?); and museum exhibits (are they informative or disinformative?). The earlier essays outline the development of museums in the Western world, the problems faced by anthropologists in attempting to deal with the often conflicting demands of professional as opposed to public interests, the tendency to both fabricate and stereotype, and the need to establish a reciprocal rather than exploitative relationship between museums/anthropologists and Aboriginal people. Written during the course of the last decade, these essays offer an accessible, often anecdotal, journey through one professional anthropologist's concerns about, and hopes for, his discipline and its future.

Economics and Morality

Anthropological Approaches

Page: 282

View: 7567

In Economics and Morality, the authors seek to illuminate the multiple kinds of analyses relating morality and economic behavior in particular kinds of economic systems. The chapters explore economic systems from a variety of diverse indigenous and capitalist societies, focusing on moral challenges in non-Western economic systems undergoing profound change, grassroots movements and moral claims in the context of capitalism, and morality-based movements taking place within corporate and state institutions. The anthropological insights of each chapter provide the value of firsthand fieldwork and ethnographic investigation, as well as the tradition of critically studying non-Western and Western societies. Because the moral challenges in a given capitalist society can no longer be effectively addressed without considering the interaction and influences of different societies in the global system, the international ethnographic research in this book can help document and make sense of the changes sweeping our planet.

Get a Cruise Ship Job

Get paid to travel to exotic places that few people ever get to see. Visit the Caribbean, Bahamas, America, Australia, Europe, Hawaii, Alaska, Africa, Canada, the Far East, the Pacific, the Mediterranean - even the Arctic! * Earn a great tax-free income! * Meet new people and make amazing friends of all nationalities! * Work in a luxurious and elegant 5-star environment! * Escape the "rat race" of home. And enjoy possibly the most amazing, satisfying and life-changing experience you ́ll ever have! My name is Neil Maxwell Keys, and in the next few minutes I ́d like to show you how you can quickly and easily land yourself a job on one of the worlds most luxurious cruise ships. Best of all, you can do this even if you have little or no experience in anything. A few years ago I tried hard to get a cruise ship job. It seemed the ideal way to save some money and travel the world while having some serious fun-in-the-sun! "Unfortunately I soon discovered that getting a job on a cruise ship is one of the hardest, most frustrating things you can do!" I scrambled night and day to find anything I could that would help me. But frustrating searches on the internet only turned-up ́dodgy ́ looking websites selling nothing but outdated addresses...phone numbers that didn ́t work... websites that no longer existed...and lots of false promises. And so-called agencies "guaranteed" me a job...but ONLY if I paid them a hefty fee! "I spent over $300 and wasted 12 months wandering around the Internet trying to get a job on a cruise ship. Don ́t make the same mistakes as me!" No one seemed to know anything. And nobody seemed to want to help without trying to take a big chunk of my hard-earned money. But it gets worse, much worse because I found that when I did manage to get through to the cruise lines...I ALWAYS got rejected! In fact I have a whole heap of rejection letters I could show you, that I received one after the other. Each time I got rejected, it crushed my feelings like a grape. Maybe this has happened to you too? You see, I knew that cruise lines hire 9,000 to 15,000 new staff PER YEAR just to keep up with all the new ships being launched. And yet I couldn ́t even get one lousy job! I concluded that this was a "closed" industry. And unless you knew anyone who already worked on a cruise ship and who was prepared to get you in...or you had a lot of money and were willing to pay big for it...then your chance of success was almost zero. I was about to give up on my dream when by complete accident... ...I discovered some startling 'secrets' about cruise ship jobs that anyone could use to get hired in the shortest time possible! The first time I applied these secrets the tables turned so dramatically it made my head spin. You see, now cruise line companies were calling ME with job offers - and I didn't know who to choose! Now, after several glorious years of working on some of the most desirable cruise ships in the world, I have traveled to many parts of South America, most of the islands of the Caribbean (my favorite being Barbados!) I have visited several islands of the Bahamas and much of Florida and the Keys, even Alaska. I made many great friends of all different nationalities and experienced tons of fantastic times and rare moments I ́ll treasure forever - and I got paid for it! And I can show YOU how to do all of this too - much quicker than it took me! You see,when I stopped working at sea I stayed in the industry as a cruise ship recruitment consultant. I worked for some of the most desirable cruise lines in the world, including: Carnival Cruise Lines, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, NCL, Holland America, Cunard and many more! What's more, I am solely responsible for helping thousands of people just like you get the job of their dreams - working onboard a luxury cruise ship, traveling the world while having the time of their lives! Heck, I even got people cruise ship jobs on the most famous and glamorous vessel in the world... ...the legendary QE2! "I joined the QE2 today as an Assistant Waitress. I just wanted to say that it's thanks to you that I am sitting on this ship right now - ready to embark on the most exciting times of my entire life! Thanks again." Sarah Williams, United Kingdom Here are just a FEW more reasons why you might enjoy the cruise ship lifestyle... * FREE excursions that passengers pay hundreds of dollars to do! Including; helicopter rides over Alaskan glaciers, Swimming with dolphins, whale watching, rain forest & island safaris, hovercraft rides over the Everglades, exploring ancient and modern cities, party & drinking cruises, free passes to top tourist attractions, elephant safari rides and much, much more! (This is not hype. I have done thousands of dollars worth of free excursions!). * Parties galore! Cabin parties, deck parties, beach parties, crew-bar parties often with free food and drink. This is where the REAL fun happens! Boy, have I got some fond memories :-) * Dirt cheap drinks for crew members (as low as $1 for a cocktail!) * Your own "crew" bar. The best bar on the ship where you ́ll meet and make many great friends - even partners! * Get paid weekly in US dollars - CASH! (Nothing beats the feeling of being handed wads of crisp dollar bills at the end of each week!) * Zero expenses. Nothing. Zippo. Nadda. This means you get to keep ALL the money you earn - every cent! * Use of state-of-the-art facilities (Including, high-tech gymnasium with sauna, Jacuzzi ́s & steam rooms!) Not to mention the superb sports facilities which can be available to crew (volleyball, basketball, racquetball, outdoor and indoor pools and jogging track!) * Free room, board and more free food than you can eat! * Reduced travel rates even FREE cruises for family and friends to come out and visit you (trust me - they ́ll LOVE you forever for this one!) * Airfare paid to and from your ship! ...The benefits go on and on! Perhaps this sounds like a pipe dream to you? Maybe too good to be true? It really isn ́t, you know. This is exactly how thousands of other people are choosing to live their lives right now, as we speak. This is exactly the life that YOU too could be living! And get this. More than 130,000 people of all ages, nationalities and backgrounds are employed in this industry. People who ́ve quit the rat-race of home and are enjoying incredible life experiences, earning good money with none of the hassle of normal everyday living. No bills to pay, no cooking, no cleaning and no commitments (other than their job, of course!) What's more, they've discovered that it's a great way to travel the world for several months at a time - without the hassle, expense and danger of doing it alone. "Why shouldn't YOU be the one having fun in the sun?" Best of all, the good news is that there ́s absolutely nothing stopping you from joining them. No barriers at all. This is an industry where age, sex or race is NOT an obstacle. There is zero prejudice towards any particular groups of people. Whether you ́re male, female, young, old, black, white, Asian, gay, straight. You ́ll have exactly the same opportunities as the next person. Indeed, my first ship had 72 different nationalities working onboard - this is what makes it so unique, special and exciting! So there ́s plenty of opportunity - if you know what to do and how to go about it. "Just a short note to let you know things are going great and I have adapted well to the ship life. So far it has been an excellent and worthwhile experience - getting to see and explore so many different places, but also interacting with so many different cultures that work onboard is great. Thanks once again for all your help." Ann-Marie McInaw, Ireland If what you ́ve read so far doesn ́t get your juices flowing... If you don ́t feel a buzz of excitement building within you... if your mouth isn ́t watering at the prospect of experiencing this superb lifestyle... then maybe you should look elsewhere? I honestly don ́t think this is for you. On the other hand... If you ́re the type of person that aspires to a bit more in life...if you want travel, adventure and romance! And you want to meet people and make friends from all around the world...if you want to visit unique, exotic islands that few people ever get to see and enjoy amazing life experiences... ...and you're someone who wants something to tell the kids when they ́re older. And stories to make your friends at home jealous while they ́re stuck in their boring, tedious routines...but most importantly - you ́re someone who is prepared to work hard and play hard... Then this is definitely for you and you ́ll never regret it! Fact is, although there are 130,000 people working on cruise ships right now...it ́s one of the hardest industry's to get into...so unless you have access to the RIGHT information and know how to use it correctly - you ́re going to struggle. "Imagine if you had someone who REALLY knows what they ́re doing to guide you!" For the first time ever I've blown-open my personal vault. I ́ve left nothing to chance. I ́ve poured every possible little detail, all of my closely-guarded secrets...I ́ve scraped together all of my direct contacts...all of my little-known tricks, tips and previously un-disclosed information - into one complete never-seen-before package...
