Random Thoughts about staying AHEAD in Life: Schools and the Future

I am here at Bacolod - Silay International Airport waiting for my flight. If you are wondering where I am going, I am flying back to Cebu again to spend more time with my family.This is actually my 3rd trip to the Queen of the South within a month and I am very thankful that my current job allows me to travel anytime I want. 

For the past few weeks, Val and I are working on one of our passion projects. Since we have been very blessed, it's about time that we pay it forward. We want to help graduating students find their dream jobs. As we were discussing on how to address the gap that hinders them from having gainful employment, we found out that there are actually several factors affecting their success. 


Based on a study conducted by the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB), graduates of the top 3 educational institutions in the Philippines are hired faster and paid more by employers.

Most corporate recruiters and HR professionals will deny this but this is actually the hard truth. According to one of my favorite bloggers, Tina Perez of www.mrswise.tk, "We are living in a third-world country. And whether we like it or not, where our children graduated from matters a lot." (You can read more about her blog post, here.)

Luckily, I studied at Ateneo from kindergarten to college. So, based on my personal experience, finding a job was quite easy. I got invited to more interviews and got hired faster. Though HR professionals or recruiters won't really say it, I believe that my school has something to do with it and it was one of my advantages. I remember too when I applied to one of the biggest consumer brands here in the country, we were filling out an online application form and there was a dropdown of the list of schools. If you can't find your school on the list, you have no way to proceed with your application. We believed that was their discreet way of shortlisting applicants.When I was working as an online recruiter, I have clients who preferred and prioritized the graduates of the "big" schools for an interview. 

I realized that education is a huge investment but worth it. It is the best gift of a parent to his or her children. (So, Papa and Mama - if you are reading this, THANK YOU!) 




However, have you thought about what happens if one fails their college entrance exam? How will it affect a person's life? I had a friend who had the money but unfortunately, did not pass the exam in Ateneo. Thus, he was forced to enroll in another school. This detour has definitely changed the next 4 years or more of his life. 


Not getting in the "big" school does not necessarily mean doomsday. However, this means that at this crucial point of their lives, right before college, we should readily support our child's future by ensuring that they get accepted in a reputable school. Why take the risk when we can give them more? Enrolling them in a review center is one of the things that we can do for them.

Based on my research, one of the leading and most awarded tutorial and review center in the country is AHEAD TUTORIAL AND REVIEW. They are the first to offer Test-Based Reviews for the country’s most competitive admission exams, namely the University of the Philippines College Admission Test (UPCAT), the Ateneo College Entrance Test (ACET), and the De La Salle University College Entrance Test (DLSUCET). They have been in the business since 1995 and have several branches in Metro Manila as well as in Baguio and Tuguegarao. 

AHEAD TUTORIAL AND REVIEW take pride in their learning programs where students not only prepare for academic excellence, they have also come to embrace their role as future leaders of the global community.

Their services include the following: 
  • Review Programs - These are designed to help students get into the university of their dreams. Their programs help students focus on their lessons, guide them towards topics to be studied, provide them with the right reference materials, and motivate them to study harder.
  • Tutorial Programs - These are one-on-one and small-group tutorial programs where students get undivided attention and care. Students are assigned tutors who match their personality and requirements. With the right support, children become all that they can possibly be.  
  • Online Programs - AHEAD Tutorial & Review Center has developed an online learning platform designed to help learners work through their everyday academic concerns. Through AHEAD Online, students can review for their exams, finish their homework, and study their lessons in advance in the comfort of their own home. Students will have one-on-one reviews with expert tutors through video-conferencing platforms in a clear and seamless manner. This is actually my favorite among their offerings. 
What I like about this center is that they have very good feedback from their students plus, their online programs is one of a kind. Making you maximize the sessions without being affected by external factors like traffic which will either get you so tired or lazy.

Anyway, I will be boarding the plane in a bit. Just share your thoughts in the comments section below. If you have more questions, you may email AHEAD directly at info@ahead.edu.ph or call them at (02) 426-0034 to 36 or 0917-89 (AHEAD) 24323. 

Fresh Out of College? How to Get in your Field of Work Quicker

You may be someone who just graduated from college. Congratulations! Graduating from college is always an accomplishment. It is different when you have a diploma. There are a lot of job opportunities that are available especially because you are young.


There is one slight problem though, some people realize that the jobs being offered to them are not related to the field of work they wanted to work on. Some just accept the opportunities that they get. They always say that they will get out of the job eventually and try finding something that is more related to their chosen field. Some people are not able to do this.


It is best that you go to employment agencies. You can be called whenever they want people like you to apply for the positions needed by top companies. Employment agencies would usually get people who are determined.



Improve Your Connections

Some college students find it hard to look for companies they can apply to because they do not know anyone. You can start attending more seminars and events. It will help you meet people who may be essential to the career that you want to build. Find Los Angeles finance recruiters. They may be able to help you get into the field of work that you want.

Pitch Your Skills Properly

You know that you are promoting yourself. You should do your best in order to become interesting. You need to show companies that you are the right fit for the job even if you are fresh out of college. It will help if you would be given more finance job opportunities. Usually this will be given by the agency when the agency decides to hire you.

Perfect Your CV and Cover Letter

Take a look at your current CV and imagine yourself as an employer. Will you look at your CV twice? You need to have a CV and a cover letter that will manage to get the attention of the employer otherwise, you will not be noticed at all.


Do not forget that with all of these things that are happening, you still need to keep your life balanced. It will allow you to always be ready for possible job opportunities coming your way.

Three PH Laws That You Might Be Breaking

A law is defined as a system of rules that are created and enforced through social or government institutions to regulate behavior.  

As an ordinary citizen, we are fully aware of our obligation and duty to our society. There is no question that we have to pay our taxes and never do criminal offenses such as murder, theft, illegal drugs, etc. We are also fully aware that we need to follow traffic rules and regulations. However, there are some laws that may not have been fully disseminated or perhaps just taken for granted. 

Here are 3 Philippine laws that you might be unconsciously breaking: 

1. Presidential Decree No. 1563 Anti-mendicancy Law (1987) - Any person who abets mendicancy by giving alms directly to mendicants, exploited infants and minors on public roads, sidewalks, parks, and bridges shall be punished by a fine nor exceeding P20.00. 

Source: https://www.facebook.com/dswdfo3
According to former Secretary Judy Taguiwalo, “We encourage the public to continuously help us in our campaign to reach out to street kids and to safeguard children from all forms of abuse and violence. We need the participation of everyone, including private individuals and institutions. Let us work in solidarity with each other to build safer communities for children and other vulnerable and marginalized groups,” 

2. Republic Act No. 8491 - Flag and Heraldic Code of the Philippines(1997) - Any person or judicial entity which violates any of the provisions of this Act shall, upon conviction, be punished by a fine of not less than Five thousand pesos (5,000.00) not more than Twenty thousand pesos (P20,000.00), or by imprisonment for not more than one (1) year, or both such fine and imprisonment, at the discretion of the court


When the National Anthem is played at a public gathering, whether by a band or by singing or both, or reproduced by any means, the attending public shall sing the anthem. The singing must be done with fervor.

As a sign of respect, all persons shall stand at attention and face the Philippine flag, if there is one displayed, and if there is none, they shall face the band or the conductor. At the first note, all persons shall execute a salute by placing their right palms over their left chests. Those in military, scouting, citizen’s military training and security guard uniforms shall give the salute prescribed by their regulations. The salute shall be completed upon the last note of the anthem.

The anthem shall not be played and sung for mere recreation, amusement or entertainment purposes except on the following occasions:

a. International competitions where the Philippines is the host or has a representative;
b. Local competitions;
c. During “signing off” and “signing on” of radio broadcasting and television stations;
d.Before the initial and last screening of films or before the opening of theater performances; 
e. Other occasions as may be allowed by the Institute.

Read related story last November 19, 2017 about Man arrested for not standing during the national anthem in a movie theater


3. Republic Act 10909 - No Shortchanging Act of 2016 - An act prohibiting business establishments from giving insufficient or no change to consumers and providing penalties therefore. This means that sellers can now be sued for not giving due change or "candies."





Any violation of this Act shall be fined Php 500 or 3% of gross sales for the first offense, P5,000 or 5% of gross sales for the second offense, and P15,000 or 7% or gross sales and a three-month suspension of operations. The fourth offense will result in a fine of P25,000 and total closure of the establishment.

According to a Standard & Poor’s (S&P) Ratings Services, only 25% of Filipino adults are financially literate. This is actually considered very low and alarming.

Aside from seminars, books and workshops, online resources have been launched and made available especially for Filipinos. Here are the top online resources to start-off your financial education.

4 Life Lessons Every Millennial Should Know

Millennials or those who have been referred as Generation Y are the individuals who grew up in an electronics-filled and increasingly online and socially-networked world. 

If you are born between 1982 and 2002, then continue reading this post and learn more about these life lessons that you should know. 

1. Be The Best At What You Do. 

Millennials are said to define themselves more by their interest and passion rather than careers. According to Mr. Renee Barian Romero, an avid online gamer who loves to join international competitions and now a successful business consultant and CEO, millennials should strive to be the best at what they do whether it's about arts, writing, dancing or even online gaming. 


Renee Barian Romero giving the "GAMER TO GAINER" talk.

When you play games, you take adversaries as a challenge to become the best. Quitting is never an option. Focus on learning and improvement. 


One of the lucky students who got a surprise gift. 

2. Be a Game Changer.

Millennials are known to be passionate about things that impact others: the planet, the environment, social justice, poverty. With proper guidance, these passions can make themselves as ‘changemakers’. What other generations might consider an ‘interest’, Millennials see it as central to who they are. They define success in terms of their ability to turn these interests into accomplishments or even a career. 

3. Be a Responsible Social Media User

Growing up in a digital environment, one can tap increasing potential with all the resources available. However, if not utilized properly, these resources may also become distractions that may hinder one’s personal or career growth. Ms. Maria Sigrid Lo, award-winning blogger / social media influencer reminds millennials to be responsible social media users. One should try to post something positive and helpful. 


Ma. Sigrid Lo talks about SOCIAL MEDIA FOR MILLENNIALS
As millennials, let us be more than a selfie-crazy generation. Make sure to practice social media etiquette. 

4. You are Responsible for Your Dreams

Sha Nacino, a prolific speaker, and author of Mission Happiness and Money and Me shared that in order to make our dreams come true, you have to be clear on what you want. Be specific. Visualize and find out what you really want in your life. 


Sha Nacino shares tips on HOW WE CAN MAKE OUR DREAMS COME TRUE.
Once you know what your goals are, write your dreams. Create a dream board that will serve as a reminder.

Lastly, act on it. Dreams don't happen overnight. Take small steps but make sure you do it consistently. You personally have the control on making your dreams come true. Believe in yourself and not on other people's perception about you. 


--------------------------------------------------------

These are just some of our key takeaways during the A MILLENNIAL’S DREAM - an event all about inspiring students and other stakeholders to pursue their passion and purpose through productivity and entrepreneurship in the digital age. 


This was held last October 12, 2017 at the Jovito H Sayson National High School and was made possible through the support of event partners: Merzci - Best Bacolod PasalubongCabalen SM City BacolodSteel Art BillboardsMaskape 3in1 CoffeeKurv'z BoutiqueSweet Hill Ice Candy NegrosWRITE UniversityWhen In ManilaSigrid SaysDHADHA GARCIAMea in Bacolod and My Metro Lifestyle.

Passion Series No. 1: Helping People #LiveBrighter

If you have been following my other page, The Purple Secretary, you might have noticed my favorite hashtag #makepassionyourprofession. It is actually one of my favorite personal advocacies which I got from the movie, 3 Idiots, and Sha Nacino's MISSION HAPPINESS book. It is the same idea that was presented in Yeng Remulla's book -- START SOMETHING. 



It is all about finding the 3P's in life -- Passion, Purpose, and Profit. Find all these three things together at the same time and this is what we call - The Sweet and Perfect Spot. So, I am launching these series on my blog to share stories and inspiration about how to make passion your profession.

First Stop: Helping Other People #LiveBrighter

Whether we admit it or not, financial illiteracy is one of the major concerns nowadays. You might be able to hear stories about people who used to be really rich but now is left with nothing due to bad luck or bad decisions.

In this way, you can make a positive difference in the lives of others by helping them fulfill their financial goals (purpose.) 


A big portion of the population is still without any form of life insurance and investment. By providing relevant financial advice and guiding them along the way, you can help ensure their security and growth, and help them build a solid future for themselves and their loved ones. 

Here are other reasons why you should consider being a Financial Advisor: 

1. Flexible Time

This job does not require you to be in the office 8-5 instead you get to enjoy flexible working hours allowing you to fulfill your other roles in life. By being able to manage your own schedule, you can allocate your time according to your priorities.

Top 6 Dog Movies You Shouldn't Miss

Every furparent would love to watch a dog film until the part where the dog dies. No matter how much we tell ourselves it's not true and just a fictional story, we all end up crying a bucket of tears. As they say, it is better for humans to die in the movie as long as the dog survives. Do you agree? (I'm so bad.) 

This Sunday, Crumpy, Cheesecake, and Cinderelly would like to share the top 5 dog movies you shouldn't miss. 

1. Marley and Me - Newlyweds John and Jenny Grogan played by Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston moved to Florida, where they are starting their life as a married couple. Then, the Grogans decide to adopt Marley, an adorable yellow Labrador pup. But Marley soon grows up to be a mischievous and naughty dog. Despite all the adventures, Marley still manages to bring out the best in John, Jenny and their growing family.



2. 8 Below - In the frozen wasteland of Antarctica features a tale about the bonds of friendship and loyalty. Three members of a scientific expedition, Jerry Shepard (Paul Walker), his friend Cooper (Jason Biggs) and an American geologist (Bruce Greenwood), must leave their beloved sled dogs behind after a devastating accident and increasingly perilous weather conditions. The dogs struggle to survive on their own during the harsh Antarctic winter.



3. Hachi: A Dog's Tale - A college professor played by Richard Gere finds a dog on a train station and forms a lasting bond with him. (This is a personal favorite and this is based on a true story.) 



4. Max - A highly trained service dog (Max) was too traumatized to remain in service after his handler U.S. Marine Kyle Wincott was killed in Afghanistan. He was instead adopted by Kyle's family back in the U.S. Kyle's teenage brother Justin (Josh Wiggins) has problems of his own and doesn't want the animal. However, Max may be Justin's only chance to learn what really happened to his brother. Justin and Max begin to bond and set out to unravel and find out more about the mystery of Kyle's death.



5. Legally Blonde 2- Yes! You read that right. It is not purely a dog movie but this movie about Elle Woods (played by Resse Witherspoon) is about her journey to Washington, D.C., to have her say about animal rights, but is ignored by every politician she encounters and quickly learns that the White House can be even tougher to navigate than the Ivy League. It is a great reminder to all of us to be the voice for all our dogs and other animals. 



6. A Dog's Purpose - This 2017 movie is all about finding the meaning of a dog's existence in the lives of its humans. It is a story about the unbreakable bond between his dog and owner as they find each other again after multiple reincarnations. This movie will give us hope to the reunited once again with our lost angels. 




Some of these movies have really sad endings but still, they are worth watching. Just like having a dog, we all know that due to their short lifespan, owning one will lead to a major heartbreak. However, an opportunity to be with them no matter how short it is definitely worth the pain. 

Ending this post with my favorite quote from Anatole France, "Until you have loved an animal, a part one's soul remains unawakened."

World-class natural remedy for Filipina beauty & wellness expert’s crowning glory

When they say "kilay" is life, it simply means that it is very significant and that it is something we can't live without. I personally believe that our hair and not just our eyebrows make a huge difference in our lives. I am not just referring to our physical appearance but also to its functions.   

Thus, hair loss has become a big concern for both men and women. It can have a devastating effect on anyone who experiences it. According to Web MD, the average adult head has about 100,000 to 150,000 strands of hair and loses up to 100 of them a day, which is normal. As people age, their rate of hair growth slows, and they can experience losing more than hundreds of strands which is quite alarming. 

So what can you do to prevent it? 

For beauty and wellness expert, Cory Quirino, embracing wellness is the first step to help improve the hair’s condition and make people look younger.


“If you choose to have a wellness lifestyle, then expect wonderful changes such as radiant skin, energy, and a general sense of well-being,” she emphasizes. “In time, you will realize that you have successfully delayed the aging process.”

The beauty and wellness expert says that choosing wellness as a lifestyle includes eating nutritious food, exercising, getting a good sleep, drinking generous amounts of water, managing stress, getting enough sunshine, and above all, staying positive. 

On top of a daily healthy regimen, a supplement is necessary to maintain a healthy hair and scalp. Many people opt to use chemical-based products. But for her, the use of natural products is a must and the best solution for hair loss.

“There are hair treatment products in the market today that claim to be effective but their ingredients could contain chemicals that may prove harmful with long-term use,” she enthuses. “Choose natural. Say NO to harsh chemicals and let nature do the makeover,” she emphasizes. 

Natural ingredients such as virgin coconut oil (VCO) and aloe vera are loaded with beneficial properties, which boost the health of the scalp and hair. These and much more natural herbs and essential oils can be found in NOVUHAIR, a topical scalp lotion with 19 natural ingredients that work in synergy to help prevent hair loss, which the beauty and wellness expert approves of.

“Even if I have been blessed with thick hair, I know that it has to be cared for,” she maintains. “I use NOVUHAIR topical scalp lotion once daily in the evening before bedtime. Next morning, I apply it on my scalp again, then a shampoo after 30 minutes. Those who wish to further thicken the hair, it is a must to also use the shampoo and conditioner daily.” 

Eventually, she noticed impressive effects after using this breakthrough product: significant lessening of hair fall, abundant growth of tress, and the return of locks’ luster.

Apart from being effective, it’s a very safe solution, too. A local clinical study has proven that NOVUHAIR has no adverse side effects with continuous use. 

Moreover, NOVUHAIR is not just for those who experience hair loss. Younger people, especially the millennials, can use it for maintenance or prevention if hair loss runs in the family.


Cory recommends NOVUHAIR to everyone, especially to those who want to maintain their hair the best way they can. For her, this globally-competitive natural product answers the needs of a discriminating, health-conscious public.

Born on August 11, the granddaughter of the late Philippine President Elpidio Quirino is an author, and television and radio host. She has been a strong advocate for natural health, beauty, and wellness for more than two decades.

“Twenty years ago, it was as simple a goal as weight loss. But when I saw the dramatic effect it had on my vitality and complexion, I knew that this was the good path to take. For those who wish the same things I wanted then, this would be just as easy to embrace,” Cory recalls. 

She wrote a series of best-seller books entitled “Forever Young”, which feature beauty and health tips as well as her own workout programs. Likewise, she also made a fitness video called “Cory Quirino’s Celebrity Workout for Beginners”.

For her, living in the 21st century has its challenges. She says: “The best way to live long and be well is to live a natural life.” 

Truly, for a natural woman like Cory, her crowning glory deserves nothing but a world-class natural remedy that is NOVUHAIR.

NOVUHAIR is available at Mercury Drug and other leading drugstores nationwide. You may also have the product delivered right at your doorstep through Lazada at https://bit.ly/2Jc92Vk
