DO ME A HUGE FAVOR AND REBLOG THIS!

I saw a billboard of this the other day, only it was a woman saying that when he wanted to stop, she stopped. It was a nice twist.

They have these posters up all around campus, and I think they’re awesome.

THIS NEEDS MORE NOTES

I HAVE A JOB INTERVIEW

amnesiac1331:

Take that unemployment and associated poverty!

What does one do in a job interview? How should one behave? What does one wear?

Congratulations. I went to a seminar about interviews and such and so here are some tips that I learnt.

Prepare for the interview and learn as much about the company as you can. This might not be that applicable for part time work but it is a good general rule as they may ask you why you want to work with/for them.

Appear enthusiastic and excited about working there, wear a smile on your face, speak confidently and use a confident body posture. You want to appear a friendly and confident in what you are saying as possible.

When answering questions be sure to use long, descriptive answers and try to relate the question to your past experiences and activities. Likewise don’t just use buzzwords (such as responsible, hard working, intelligent etc) to describe yourself, use actual anecdotes and evidence from your life to support your answers. For instance you could say that having done many extracuriccular activities has improved your time management skills.

Your clothes depend on the job, if it is just a part-time or casual work then something smart casual would most likely be appropriate.

Remember that the interviewers are not your enemy and will want this you to be comfortable so that they can get as much information as possible.

Good luck.

amnesiac1331:

Dark Pink: Compulsory voting, enforced.
Light Pink: Compulsory voting, not enforced.
Orange:  Compulsory voting, enforced (only men).
Creamy Pink: Compulsory voting, not enforced (only men).
Yellow: Historical - the country had compulsory voting in the past.

I never stop being surprised when I remember that the majority of the world does not have compulsory voting. Up until about last year, I thought that Australia was in the majority, and most democracies had compulsory voting. Apparently not. 

I know this debate is probably overdone, but it’s interesting to think about. Is it more democratic to force people to vote, ensuring you get the entire scope of opinions? My gut instinct is always yes. I mean, democracy has its problems, but I think it’s the best we’ve got for now. People are made to believe that there are only two choices (in Australia) - Labor and Liberal. People tend to turn up their nose when I say I plan to vote Greens, because they view that as throwing away a vote. Which means that they’re right, but only through belief. You know, it’s the old attitude that one person can’t change anything, so why bother trying? ANYWAY. Regardless of its problems, I generally think compulsory voting is the way to go, because otherwise the government becomes even less representative than it already is. And if you’re really determined not to play a part, Donkey votes are an option!

But I don’t know. Maybe forcing people who aren’t politically engaged, and don’t really know what they’re voting for beyond the front page issues, maybe that’s not such a good idea. And judging by the fact that Gillard’s approval rating has been pretty much exclusively tied to one or two issues during her time in office, that’s the majority of people. 

What do you folks think?

Disclaimer: This post may not make much sense as I am quite tired at the moment but we’ll see.
It occurs to me that when voting is not compulsory, it is likely the people who are most passionate about issues that will turn up to vote. Thus you may end up with a loud minority, silent majority type problem. For instance with the gay marriage debate, the majority of Australians are pro marriage equality but are not necessarily strong in that belief, meanwhile there is a very passionate minority who are anti-marriage equality, in many cases it is the religious right who are most passionate and vocal about their beliefs. If there were a non-compulsory referendum on this issue many semi-supporters of marriage equality would not turn up to vote and while almost all of those against it will as they are more passionate. Essentially compulsory voting forces those who don’t care too much about an issue to pick a side and thus it gets a better representation of opinions, it may also encourage those people to learn a bit more about politics so that they can make a more informed decision as I doubt most people really want to make a decision blind.
