Do You Have ‘Repetitive Snooze Injury’?

Do You Have ‘Repetitive Snooze Injury’?

the-sleeper-hold--we-lose-173-days-of-our-life-to-snoozing_52fa450ebd924_w1500

     

    Us Brits spend around 85 hours a year snoozing, in fact just this morning I somehow managed to ignore my alarms for two hours. I have major repetitive snooze injury, but how about you?

    We get an average six and a half hours of sleep a night and most of us wake up around quarter past seven (I’m not convinced that time exists). 1 in 10 employees have been fired due to sleeping in and being late, and 1 in 4 admit to feeling sleepy whilst at work due to lack of sleep.

    But snoozers have god intentions! We intend to do some morning exercise, chores or spend more time with family – if only we could get up. But how do we do this? Annoying alarms have got to be the best motivation, because even if you feel you haven’t slept enough you’ll probably be motivated to get out bed just to turn Crazy Frog off. With a sledge hammer.

          I’m a big fan of Monster. It’s one of the first job sites employers think of when they want to list a new position online. The Monster Job Search app functions pretty similarly to the normal website, so it’s very easy to use for not-so-tech-savvy job hunters.

It also shows you how you and your industry connections are connected via your social networks, so you can follow up with them on your other social sites.

                  Okay, so this app looks kind of outdated, but it’s super useful for getting you into the swing of answering any kind of interview question that is thrown your way. The big benefit of using this app is that it explains to you what your interviewers motivations might be for asking you a specific kind of question. Learn what your interviewer is looking for in your answers and be more prepared for the real interview when the time comes.

                      Feeling confident with your text-answered interview questions but concerned about doing the face-to-face interview? This app prepares you for interacting with your interviewer by simulating an employer asking you questions.

                      You can record your response and see what you look like to the interviewer to understand what movements, vocal pauses, etc. you need to work on.
