How to Choose a Recruitment Agency – As a Candidate

There are two different kinds of candidates, those who are already working but seeking something better and those who don’t have employment. Whatever type you belong to there comes a point when you start feeling the pressure and may start panicking. The money is running low or you’ve spent an enormous time trying to find a job, with no luck. But don’t despair since there is something else you can do. The solution to your trouble is finding a suitable recruitment agency which will help you find employment. Putting things in the hands of professionals when it comes to finding employment is a trend which is becoming more popular every day. Employers sometimes prefer this method in finding staff – rather than hiring people who knock on their doors or send CVs the conventional way. So – how do you choose the right employment agency to ensure your best representation in the job market?

Well choosing the best recruitment agency means finding one that will best suit your needs. Finding the right agency may seem a tiring process but there are some things you need to keep in mind which can help ease your choice.

Ask your business associates and your other contacts for agencies they have used or recruiters they know. You can also check popular job boards to see which agencies post for jobs.

Make a list in Excel and fill up details like names, emails, contact numbers, location and so on. You can easily find this information on the company’s website or via LinkedIn. Update this list at regular intervals or whenever you get new information.

Think about your requirements and expectations that you want the agency to provide.

Contact several different agencies to find out about the services they offer for candidates with your background.

You should have an honest and open communication with the recruiter so be clear about your experience, qualifications, the type of company you want to work for, its location and your salary requirements.

It is important that you’re able to trust your agency so don’t hesitate to ask them about references. Then talk to those candidates that they have placed in the past to understand their experiences with the agency.

The recruitment agencies have a staffing representative called a headhunter or a recruitment consultant, whose job is to identify your skills so they can match them with an employer looking to fill an open job position. This is the person you will work with during your search so you should work on ‘selling’ your experience – and qualifications to them since they’ll be representing you in the eyes of the employer. This person should be a specialist in the sector you’re in, have a thorough understanding of your previous history, technical terms which people in your sector use, the company that they represent which offers the job, and the position you’re applying for so don’t hesitate to assess them. The quality of the headhunter is what is most important.

Try to choose an agency which offers resume/CV preparation and marketing services. Some agencies do this for free while some may charge. You can also ask for help to prepare you for the interviews.

Also make sure that the agency you want to subscribe to has a license or accreditation. This is to make sure that they follow a common code of conduct or industry standards.

Find out which recruitment software or ATS the agency is using. Generally agencies that are using the latest technologies are more efficient and responsive.

Home and Small Office Networking Guide

So what is a network?

A network supports the interconnection of many devices and a protocol for ensuring they can communicate with one another in the most effective way. The best way to understand how networks work is to visualise each element of the network as a layer, one on top of another. The conceptual model that describes this layered model is known as the OSI Reference Model, which has seven layers. All Network professionals use this in their day to day design and engineering work.

For our purposes we can simplify it into three layers, going from the bottom up there is:

1. The Physical layer – the cable between machines (typically called 100BaseT, uses four pairs), the card in the back of your machine (802.3 Ethernet NIC) or Wireless Networking adapter (802.11n etc) etc.

2. Data Link, Network and Transport Layers – Responsible for managing the addressing, routing and packaging of data around the network. Includes the Internet protocol (TCP/IP), gaming and file transfer based protocols (such as UDP), and VPN networking from home to your office (PPTP or IPSec)

3. And the Session, Presentation and Application Layers – file sharing and database access in the office (NetBIOS, Named Pipes, NFS), Internet browsing (HTTP, DNS), eMail (MIME, SMTP, POP3) and securing Internet banking or shopping (SSL/TLS)

Breaking it out into layers like this helps us understand when we buy software or hardware which layer(s) it works at and therefore what it can provide for us. Is it providing connectivity, access to another Wide Area Network (WAN, i.e. for the Internet), security or access to my own Local Area Network (LAN, i.e. for access to a printer). It’s extremely useful when diagnosing problems with networks. Network Addressing

In order to send a letter to your friend in the next town, or a country on the other side of the world the postal system requires an address which hones down through the address layers from country to house number to narrow down exactly where your friend lives and which post box the postman should drop the letter in. Digital Networks work in a similar way only rather than moving mail around they move digital data packets.

MAC addresses – The Media Access Control address identifies a single piece of hardware on the physical network and is a scheme with a long number designed to be globally unique. It’s set in the hardware at the point of manufacture. An example of a MAC address is 1A-2F-1D-9C-7A-3C (Layer 2).

IP address – The Internet Protocol address uniquely identifies all network interfaces that are typically endpoints on the Internet, or your own local IP based network (in an office). Within the local or global (Internet) address space the IP address must be unique, otherwise the IP routing protocol won’t know where to send the packet. An IP address will be mapped across to a physical MAC address as described above, the mapping is held in the routing tables of router hardware on the network. A sample IP address is (Layer 4). Addresses are divided up into Class A, B and C each having a larger address space for larger organisations requirements. Small offices and domestic addresses are almost always Class C and the 192.168.0.nnn network is reserved for anyone to use on any small private network.

DNS name (and server) – Domain Name Server based addresses are just names, with dots to designate levels of uniqueness. We are all familiar with Internet domain names such as ours in the resource box. The DNS name in this instance is the ‘cryopc’ element of the full address. DNS servers store all these hostnames and the IP addresses they map to.

Network Security

Your home hub/router will usually have built in security features, including the following:

MAC identification – Using the MAC address of the hardware as a list of authorised hardware to access your network. Its a good basic precaution but unfortunately a dedicated hacker can spoof a known MAC address and gain access if they really want to. It just stops the opportunists.

WEP and WPA – Are the most widely available forms of wireless network encryption and security. Without the WEP or WPA keys your wireless network is unusable to outsiders. WEP is now considered quite weak as hackers have demonstrated ways of cracking it fairly quickly, and once cracked its no longer secure. WPA is the more secure system as it is harder to crack (has a much longer passphrase) and once cracked still only leaves a very small window of opportunity for exploitation as it derives a cipher for each packet that changes constantly. It utilises TLS encryption just like the Internet checkout padlock. Still the network is only ever as secure as the passphrase used to protect it, so pick an obscure one.

VPN, SSL/TLS and IPsec – Most of us don’t even know we are using these technologies but they all work in a similar way. They use sophisticated and robust encryption to ensure private information sent over a public network is not visible to snoopers. SSL/TLS is used most widely and you will recognise it as the checkout padlock, or encryption used when typing in credit card details when Internet shopping.

NAT – Network Address Translation isn’t really security at all but about economising on the rapidly diminishing availability of IPv4 addresses on the Internet, but it does shield your private network addresses from the outside by creating the impression to the internet that only a single address (your routers own public address) is accessing the Internet from your network. This means ad hoc access to your local network from the outside is much more difficult without internal network devices initiating a connection first (and thereby establishing a NAT translation).

Typical network devices Segment – a segment isn’t really a device it’s a single network cable potentially connected to multiple machines, but sometimes only a single machine. It can be useful to think of it as a device in its own right as the cable itself imposes limits, resource demands and capabilities on the network.

Router – maps one address in one address space to another in another through routing tables and protocols stored on the device, usually in memory.

Hub / Switch – Most Hubs are known as switching hubs as each network port on the hub functions as its own segment of the LAN thus it’s able to utilise the full bandwidth of the link and not share it with everyone on the same LAN.

Firewall – Can be software or dedicated hardware based the latter widely being considered the best. Windows has a built in firewall and most home hub/routers also have them preconfigured and built-in. Firewall rules determine what traffic you want to let out, and into your network. Usually they are preconfigured to let out only connections initiated internally (to prevent ad hoc attacks) and to let back in only traffic on certain known safe ports such as those commonly used for the Internet, http and ftp. Games can sometimes have issues with firewalls as they will use other ad hoc ports. You will need to create custom rules to get around this problem.

Wireless Access Point – Wireless networks are effectively airborne segments of network. The access point serves as a point of access, and also secures the network as discussed in the above security section. In a small network it often makes sense to combine many network devices into a single physical device. That’s why most small office routers also have a Firewall, Hub and Wireless Access point built in. However in a medium sized organisation or large enterprise single devices need to have more reliability, capacity and security and so tend to be dedicated devices to a single purpose. A firewall for example can cost US$100 with a hub and router built-in or for a government departmental web site it could cost US$40,000 as a single appliance

First, you’ll need to think up a name for your website domain. Your website domain is, to put it simply, the name of your website address. The domain name for your business website should be something directly related to the name of your business. Ideally, it should include the name of your business, plus something else if necessary.

You can always check to see if your domain name is available in your domain vendor website. We recommend you buy your domain name from “hostgator”. Go to, and click on “domains”.

Enter the domain name that you would like to use in the “choose your new web address” bar, and click on “search” to check if it is available. Once you check availability, buy it. Now that your domain name is ready, you need hosting and tools to easily create your website. We recommend you buy both hosting and your website builder from HostGator, because the company offers a hosting plus website builder bundle for an amazing price.

2. Your brand is created only in part by you

It is co-created by the public in how they view you. You have control over the message you send out about who your company is, what is stands for and what it promises. You have no control over how the message is interpreted by its recipients, your prospective customers. Your brand is also subject to the tides of public opinion.

3. Discovering, rather than simply imagining, who your ideal client is will determine your level of success

Crystallize your understanding of the customer you seek to serve. Fiction writers create a “back story” for each of their fictional characters before they write a word. They conjure biographical details about each character, describing what his life influences have been, which then informs his character. The author then literally “knows” how each character would behave in a particular situation and knows what his character’s response to various stimuli would be. As a business owner, you must “characterize” your ideal prospective customer in this same manner. This knowledge is necessary for you to craft products and services that your potential customer will respond to and buy.

YouTube advertising works in the same way as Google Ads or Facebook Ads. That is to say, that it is PPC (Pay Per Click) and you only get charged when someone clicks or when they watch through to the end. YouTube advertising also allows you to target your viewers by demographic – for instance you can only show adverts to people of a certain age in a certain location with a specific interest.

Your ads will be shown on mobile and you get lots of useful data on back to see the performance of your ads. It’s thought that in 2013, advertisers spent about $5 billion on YouTube ads, which suggests it can be highly effective when used correctly.

Essentially, this form of advertising is the closest there is to TV advertising and you should view it as such. Bear this in mind and this can be a very profitable experiment.

When it comes to buying used tractors and buy used Excavators online, there are a few things that you need to consider prior to the purchase. Firstly, the present condition of the machinery is a very important criterion that would greatly influence your decision. Ascertaining the condition of the machinery, its useful life and efficiency is of utmost importance. Although you have several options online, finding a reliable seller or dealer is really important. It is best to buy from a reputed and reliable dealer. This way you are sure of the quality of the product.

Getting the documents checked is another important to do on the list of things. Only then can you be sure that the machinery you are going to buy would serve you rather than the other way round. The hours of use, the maintenance of the machinery and its overall condition is all to be ascertained before signing on the dotted line. It is also important that you do check the availability of the spares. Servicing facilities, the network of service centers and the cost involved is also an important consideration.
