Is Austin Jim a rex hotel HR?
It’s a fake job scam.
The scam is to get you to pay for fake work documentation.
UK employers cannot employ non EU nationals unless they are licenced by the Home Office to do so. THe Rex Hotel is not on the Register of Sponsors so cannot employ non EEA nationals in the UK.
There is a recruitment process that companies have to follow as they cannot offer a job to a non EU national unless they have advertised the post.in trade and national press and across the job centre network. Only if no suitably qualified applicant from the EU applies can they offer the job to a non EU applicant. You would have to be interviewed, there is no way any UK company is going to offer a job to someone they have not interviewed.
Unless you have a degree level qualification and extensive experience you stand no chance of getting a visa or competing in the job market in the UK. Most of the jobs on the list would not qualify for a work visa in the UK as they are low skilled.
If you reply to this, you will eventually be asked to contact a fake lawyer, embassy official or travel agency to process your visa. You will be asked to pay by Western Union.
The ONLY way UK visas are ever issued is in the country of the applicant from a visa application centre, usually a High Commission or Embassy. The UK employer would issue you with a Certificate of Sponsorship which you take to the visa application centre with your documents (bank statements, education and qualifications certificates, etc) and a fee of £270 which you pay direct to them. There you will be photographed and finger printed as part of the process. Visas are never processed in the UK and never by third parties, either lawyers or agencies. Your only cost would be the visa cost. All other costs are handled by the employer.
Nobody can guarantee you a visa and nobody can apply on your behalf.
No legitimate organisation in the UK would ask you to send money by Western Union – EVER! They all have bank accounts, so why would they need to use WU? There are some golden rules you should observe when dealing with people on the Internet and the first and most important is that you never, never pay for anything by Western Union or Moneygram. No legitimate business uses this method of transferring money and you may as well burn your money as it is untraceable and irretrievable.
Have nothing more to do with these people and beware of any future approaches by email, they are always a scam.
Considering moving to Austin a lot of questions…?
I am considering moving to Austin from Milwaukee sometime in early August. I visted the city in March but at best got a general idea.
One general question: this move would only be until August, would it be financially worth it?
*What some decent & well priced areas that one would not need a car to get around in and are safe?
*Is there public transport to suburban or greater metro areas?
* What is the overall cost for a single person concerning: electricity, water/gas, internet, transport, food, and taxes—I noticed that wages weren”t all that great for a recent college grad but at the sametime the cost of living seemed much lower than Milwaukee.
*Considering the state of the economy, how difficult in general would it be to secure a job in finance/call center if I sent several resumes this week?
…and any other advice you might have.
1) Anywhere central that’s close to a bus route or two should be easy to get around. If you’re going to be working central, you should be fine, but if you are going to be working far North or South, it will be decidedly harder to live without a car because the buses are few and far between in the areas further out. I had to buy a car when I first moved here, because the bus didn’t run early enough, or close enough to my work place.
2) Public transportation to/from suburban areas is extremely limited. There’s a couple of park and rides, so if you are living in the burbs, you will have to drive to one of these. There’s no buses that drive around in Round Rock/Pflugerville, etc, they only go from a park and ride, to downtown Austin.
3) cost of living is on the rise (but it seems to be most everywhere in America). The housing market is pretty tight right now. Rents are up pretty high, and it’s going to get tighter when all the students move to town (although most of them have probably secured places already). Bills are tough to estimate, because it really depends on the place you rent, the efficiency of the A/C, how cold you keep it, etc. I usually ranged between $30-100/mo when I was living alone, the higher end being the summer months. Water and gas should be significantly cheaper than the electric bill, and some complexes include them in the rent.
4) most call centers in town are staffed by temp agencies. It’s not hard to get placements at most of them, but there might be some waiting involved. Entry level wages are notoriously low here because there’s a lot of recent college grads who will take most anything.
My advice would be if you are moving without a job lined up, find a roommate/shared housing at first until you find a job and then find a place on your own when you know the city better, know what you can afford, and where you want to live in relation to your work.

Is it better to open a business as a non profit or small business?
I want to open a christian youth activity center, with a club atmohsphere, I don’t have business experience. Should I go the route of non profit or just go at it as a small business? And how do you get started? Any website suggestions?
Whether you run it as a non-profit or as a for profit you need the same techniques because you’ll run it exactly the same way to be profitable. The difference is what you do with the profit and the way you are taxed.
Since you’ve never been in business before, I would strongly recommend that you talk to a business counselor before you do anything especially spend money. I’d call the local office of SCORE (go to http://www.score.org and input your zip code to find the chapter nearest you), the advice is FREE.
The counselor at SCORE will most likely advise you to write a business plan which is very good advice because it will force you to dig out all of the start up details and the costs of starting a Christian youth activity center and force you to also understand all of the aspects of this business including the customers you’ll concentrate on (your market ) and how you’ll go after them.

Do employers prefer some type of previous internship when applying for an IT consulting job?
I will graduate this year with a degree in Informatics through the school of information, and I would like to apply to IT consulting jobs. The problem is that I don’t have any previous internships, compared to other applicants perhaps. How can I make myself seem just as qualified with the experience I DO have, such as on campus jobs? Thanks.
Consulting Job? Consultants are usually very skilled with good references and have been successful in business before.
Now this being said I believe you can start where you stand and be of great service to people just starting out but this will need to be done on the side to begin with until you are viewed as an expert by enough people to make you prosperous.
Google Travis at Bum Marketing and get free newsletter and start learning from them then start an online information and coaching/consultant business in the same way he does but for people that need help with your services.
I know his may seem contradictory but Proctor and Gamble will probably not hire you as an consultant right out of school but you could help many small business people with knowledge and after a few years of this you could get some bigger clients because you have an proven track record of being successful.
Good Luck in whatever you do.

How cold/wet does it get in Los Angeles and Austin Tx around late January/early Feb?
I will be travelling to the USA late January next year and will be spending some time in Los Angeles and also in Austin Tx. I’ve only ever been there in Spring or Autumn so I’m not sure how cold it gets during winter. I have looked up climate averages but I’d prefer to hear from someone who has experienced it first-hand. Thank you.
Since you asked in the Los Angeles forum, I’ll answer for Los Angeles, which is much more mild in winter than Austin.
It never snows here in LA. The climate averages are pretty accurate, since we rarely vary more than a few degrees from those averages, especially on the colder end. We could get a warm spell, which is much more common. It will occasionally get below 32 in the San Fernando Valley, but is much more mild near the coast.
That time of year is actually our rainy season. But since we generally get about 15 inches on average per year, it’s generally not very wet. I obviously cannot guarantee weather, but LA has about 340+ days of sunshine per year. And look, today is another sunny day!
How does someone leave their kids in a hot car?
Turn over to The Weather Channel. They have a story on there about toddler in Austin Tx, being left in her car seat, in the hot car and dying.Wouldn’t it be terrible to do this to your child? How do you run off and forget that your baby is in the car? I have a 5 year old and a 2 year old and I hope I never forget that they are in the backseat. I jnow most people wouldn’t do this on purpose but I can’t imagine what these people are thinking.
Good god, Austin is like the face of the sun this time of year!! I don’t know how you could ever forget your child in the car. However I will admit I have left my son in the car. He was sound asleep after crying for 20 minutes and I just had to run into the bank to withdraw some money. It seemed cruel to wake him up just to run in for a minute. I already had the withdrawl slip filled out it was just going to take 30 seconds. I left the car running so the air conditioning was on and I took my little remote key pad so I could unlock the car and I sprinted into the bank. I came sprinting back out a minute later and I hit the button on the key pad and nothing happened. I literally threw up in my mouth. Apparently the remote doesn’t work if the key is in the ignition. My mom brought the spare key for me within 10 minutes and my son never even woke up but I will NEVER EVER leave him in the car again for any reason or any amount of time.

Is a branding and marketing consultancy a good start-up company?
I have a big interest in branding and marketing. However, I do not have a strong theoretical knowledge on branding and nor on business & finance. (my background is engineering). I plan to however take a Grad Diploma in brand management.
I would like to set up a company where I advise companies on how to improve their branding and hence sell more and generate higher profits as well as happier customers.
Do you think this is a good start-up idea?
I also know there are other such companies around (with many more years of experience). So what can I do to differentiate my company from theirs? (would love some ideas!)
As a start up it is one of the lowest cost business to run. You can do it from home.
Unfortunately, with no experience, you cannot get the job. Companies will only hire consultants with actual brand and strategic planning experiences.
Most brand consultants that do their own business are from the past advertising industry where they are strategic and brand planners working on multi-national brands over global or regional markets. Where they are familiar with the product development, consumer markets and ability to conduct research with their research resources and understand and translate the science of marketing and branding to the customers.
Sorry…. But I think you are so not ready for this. You should start considering looking for a job in the sector. Learn from big firms, gain your reputation (the only thing that sells to potential customers), work on big brands for credentials, then go and do your branding firm. The road in this career – a very long one.

I understand that you’re identifying those songs with the traditional 12 bar rhythm progression. But to call it blues, that means a lot more.
I mean, you are so far off base with your 12 bar blues list, that I don’t think posting an individual song link for each artist I mentioned would do any good. I mean, “Hey Santa!” is NOT 12 bar blues, I don’t care what the format is. Alright, I will post a good link to one of my aforementioned…enjoy, please! Remember, blues is a feeling, not a time signature.
this is 12 bar blues at it’s finest!

What are the pros and cons of having a Pampered Chef business?
If you have a business with Pampered Chef please tell me your honest opinion pros and cons.
I love Pampered Chef, it’s very rewarding. You set your own pace (just one show a month would meet the minimum), you get a discount that increases with your sales, there’s lots of growth opportunity, and Pampered Chef rewards it’s dedicated consultants with trips.
However, as with ANY profitable home business, you must be dedicated and put in hours in order to be successful. If you don’t already have a good network of friends, the first few months can be challenging. Though, once you do build up a network of people and get the hang of things, it does get easier to keep business going.
As to the matter of pricing, Over 80% of the products are under $50 dollars. On top of that, PC has a special for both guests and hosts every month to reduce the how much you spend. Hosts can earn 100% FREE products (including no Shipping charges), half-priced products, and discounts up to a year.
Sure, you can find several products in the local store, but do they have the quality? Unlikely, you’ll spend twice as much by replacing the store-bought products way before the PC ones. I have seen in a restuarant PC products that were several years old. IF something does not work as it should or breaks with proper use, all products have at least a 1-year guarantee and some have lifetime guarantees. All you need is to return the product with the receipt to have it replaced for free.

How should I re-establish bad credit with credit card companies? I’ve never been defauler for utilties,city ?
I lived in Austin TX for at least 6 years. I got very good credit but during the last 2 years i didn’t have proper jobs and used to get unemployment still i was making minimum payments. But for the last 6 months i got stuck up hand to mouth and couldn’t make the payment and credit card companies put me on collection inspite of the fact that i used to make payments on monthly payment protection plan. Anyway now I’m in the position to at least continue making minimum payments is there any fed program to convince credit card company to stop hearting the credit cosidering the present econmic condition and they shouldn’t assume that every1 is the same?
Well, I don’t promise anything but (if you have time to go through it all) many people seem to find these links useful:
How long is police academy (physical part) in Austin PD, and Houston PD?
I was wondering how old you have to apply for both departments, all the requirements, salary info. And also what kind of education is required to join these police departments. I am currently 14 & is very curious about this.
Positions are filled on a competitive basis, those meeting the minimum requirements will not be as qualified as those with the best qualifications. And, there are more applicants than there are positions. To become a police officer, the standard requirement for most major police agencies seems to be a minimum of 60 undergraduate hours (from a regionally accredited college), although some allow substitution of military service, and a Bachelor’s degree may be preferred (generally required for federal special agent positions); although some may only require a high school diploma. Some agencies (and federal agencies) have a military hiring preference, and being an officer counts more than being an enlisted person. Some agencies have age limits, for federal jobs it is 21 minimum and 37 maximum. Any major is acceptable, but Criminal Justice, Forensics, Computer Science, Sociology, or Psychology may stand you in better stead. Foreign language ability, particularly Spanish, is advantageous. Smaller agencies may have a high school requirement. And GPA may be more important than major. The agency normally provides training, but some states may have private academies (like TX). Those meeting the minimum requirements may not compare well to the best qualified applicants. Many agencies have increased pay levels for higher education, and higher education facilitates promotion.
A Bachelor’s degree is required for federal special agent positions (very few exceptions). As stated above, any major is acceptable. I attended an agency-sponsored Masters program for an MS in management. GPA, work experience, ability to communicate orally and in writing, and graduate degrees are what determine who gets hired for federal positions. And, there are always more applicants than positions. Those meeting the minimum requirements may not compare well to the best qualified applicants. Military service may provide hiring preference, service as an officer is preferred over enlisted service.
You must have no felony arrests, and many misdemeanor arrests are also disqualifying, as may be bad credit. And, a domestic violence conviction will be disqualifying. Any prior drug use of any sort may be disqualifying, although exceptions are possible in some agencies. There may be a written exam, medical exam, polygraph test, physical fitness test, drug test, minimum eyesight requirements, psychological evaluation, oral board examination, and full background check. As I said, there are always more applicants than there are positions, so it may take many application submissions to get an acceptable job (at least it did for me). Contact the agency directly or look for their website, which will list their employment qualifications and requirements.

What’s the best way for a European to find work in the U.S.?
My Hubby is a technician here in Europe and we want to find out what qualifications he’ll need to work in the U.S. before we move back to the U.S. What’s the best way for us to go about doing a job search and qualification search for him?
We’ve already started doing job searches (and obviously we know he needs to get a work permit, etc.) but what we don’t know is how to find out if the qualifications he has as an electrician/technician will be valid in the U.S. or if he’ll have to go through more training or something. Should we contact individual companies and ask them what they think?
I would target specific companies and take a look at their job postings to see what qualifications they list. I’m guessing most electrician positions will be in labor unions, so joining the union will be a requirement in those cases. Sometimes union seniority will play a part in filling positions, but if a job is posted for public view, they are generally open to looking at candidates who are not currently members of the union.
The job posting will also tell you the amount of experience they’re seeking, as well as any certifications or education they require. He may also need to obtain a license in the state where he’ll be working.
To give you a few examples, here are the requirements for an Electrician position in Austin, TX:
Do you have an Associate-s degree and 3 years relevant experience? Please detail. Do you have experience with AC-DC drives, PLC-s, crane controls and AC-DC motors? Please elaborate. In addition to your electrical skills, please discuss your mechanical ability.
This is for a Journeyman in Oklahoma City, OK:
When did you receive your electrician license for the State of Oklahoma Describe your experience as a journeyman Explain your knowledge of installation of electrical equipment Are you able to work in NE Oklahoma.
And here’s one for an Electrician in Phoenix, AZ:
- Must have 8-10 years of experience as an electrician Journeyman 1
- Must have 5-7 years of experience as an electrician Journeyman 2
- Must have 2-4 years of experience as an electrician Apprentice 1
- Must have steel toe boots.
- Must have own tools-Ask about tool list
- Must be able to pass drug test
- Must be able to pass background check

What’s the job market like in Austin, TX?
My girlfriend is looking to move to Austin to go to the University of Texas. I’ll be a college graduate (Econ) by the time we move. What’s the job market like down there?
It depends on what type of job you are looking for and how much experience you have. As a recent grad, you will be competing against recent UT grads, who will likely have the “home town” advantage. But, with the state capital being in Austin, there are government positions with the state, county & city, as well as industry positions. I moved here from a northern state 18 months ago, and was impressed by the number of jobs available. Austin has not seen (yet, anyway) the slow down that the rest of the country is seeing (like the auto industry areas are seeing). Check out www.statesman.com jobs for listings. Craig’s list also typically has job listings here. Good Luck! You’ll love it here.

what is a day like in the business world for a business marketer ?
I’m in my first year of high school. I am interested in persuing a career in busness marketing/ advertising in the fashion industry. I was wondering if anyone worked in the business world. I would like to know how it is like. And I was thinking about studying at Fordham and then Parsons.
Marketing is a really challenging career and you have to love it if you want to make it as your life.
This profession takes all your criativity, imagination, organization and other skills as p.example finances.
A Day in the Life
A marketing executive directs the marketing of a company’s products or services. Marketing executives know the company’s product line, historical market, potential market, media costs, media response, and budgeting issues. Marketers often have to be intimate with a number of advertising media, such as radio, television, phone solicitation, mail campaigns, and promotional events. Their most difficult task is determining how best to take advantage of any or all of them to promote their product. In addition, “You have to know when to sell your own product, and when to mow down the other guy’s product,” said one New York marketing executive. Marketing takes three basic forms: Positive marketing (the benefits of your product or service), educational marketing (developing a demand for your product by educating people about their needs, such as mouthwash marketers talking about gingivitis), and negative marketing (revealing the flaws in a competitor’s product). Knowing when to do which and how is both the science and art that marketing executives practice. Most marketing executives spend significant time analyzing demographics, regional sales figures, and the competition. However, more than one marketer told us that in the end, marketing is all about “common sense.” Many said a general approach to the industry is useless each product has one specific trait, detail or role that is unique and valuable, and all the marketing executive does is apply common sense to the promotion of that trait. Another marketer put it this way: A marketing executive has to be able to recognize “unexplored potentialities” that can turn a low-selling item into a large-selling item, and a large-selling item into a mega-hit. The pressure is significant, but it has one advantage: Marketers always know how they’re doing, as tracked by an increase or decrease in sales. External events may drive demand for a product in one direction or another; it’s the marketer’s job to respond to these shifts and take advantage of them. Excuses for low sales don’t go over well. Marketers often work hand-in-hand with developers, advertisers, and production managers to ensure a product’s successful promotion. However, a number of marketers mentioned that although they are called in to consult on production decisions, such as product design, color, and even box shape, “many of the decisions are made without our consent anyway.” A marketer has to be creative, confident, and thick-skinned-marketing personnel get fired at an above average rate. Nevertheless, creative thinkers with the ability to analyze statistics and work out long-term logistical plans find sound homes in marketing divisions, where all their skills are needed to successfully launch a product or maintain a product’s sales.
Marketing executives have no formal educational requirements, but most employers require a college degree. Valued courses include marketing, statistics, advertising, psychology, sociology, business, finance, economics, and history. Communication skills are very important, so any writing experience is appreciated. Marketing executives need know their product line and its unique features, so special requirements may apply for those in science, mechanical, medical, or computer-based industries. Professional education is the norm in this occupation, with many marketers attending at least two seminars or lectures a year. Certification is available from a number of professional societies (such as the American Marketing Association and Marketing Executives International), but employers do not require it.
Marketing executives often are promoted to strategic planning positions. Others take their skills to advertising agencies, demographic research firms, or public relations firms.

Do you always list your entire employment history on a resume?
I’m wondering if it’s worth mentioning, or would be problematic for not mentioning my first job. I was in High School and worked at a Quiznos. Didn’t get fired or quit for anything stupid. The place just went out of business eventually, but anywho. Is it worth mentioning this? I worked there for about a year.
I have a masters degree and work as a strategic management consultant. My experience includes 8 years experience working as a principal consultant for an international consulting firm.
No, I’m not going to put that I worked at Joann’s Fabrics when I was in high school.
No, I”m not worried that the company is going to find out and fire me because I falsified a resume / application.
Is Quiznos worth mentioning for you? How old are you now and what kind of jobs are you looking for?
