1.An interesting post to read this week
- 1. With the increasing popularity of Kindle, anyone can make money writing an ebook, even if you are a novice like me
- 2. Book Authur no longer have to face rejections from a book publisher and would instead have the option to self-publish
- 3. Decide on your book genre, whether it going to be fiction or non-fiction, tutorial, and guides for non-fiction or crime, thriller, fantasy for fiction?
- 4. A good book cover is a very important factor in marketing your ebook(yes, sadly, we live in a very superficial world), do find a professional to design your ebook cover
- 5. Don't forget to write a description of your ebook on Amazon and don't forget to add a sample of your book
- 6. Sell it cheap, at 99cent!
Perhaps I should get started on an ebook soon? haha
2.Some tipforthought(not really in a position to give tips but why not?)
Some time ago, I read an interesting article on a magazine about how to get that first job and with me about to ord soon, I thought it would be quite relevant to me, Here are some way mention by the magazine
*I am not affiliated to any of the companies mentioned below
1. Find a job in newspapers article and locally publish trade magazine
- Lots of jobs are often available at the st classified and the newspaper app(I read thenewspaper app daily:), cause it's free!)
2. Find a job in an online portal
- The most popular choices, no need to explain much, just upload and send your resume to the various company that is hiring
3. Find a job in your school
- The student card is a very helpful tool, you can always approach your school career service for any help in your career or that first job
4. Find a job with a career fair
- There are career fairs in sg all throughout the year, I just attended the mindef career fair for NSF not long ago, lots of engineering job and sign on opportunity too
5. Find a job with a recruitment agency
- Personally, I think that if you are finding a part-time job a recruitment agency would work fine, any full-time job, you should liaise with the company directly instead
Last but not least, networking, networking, networking!
As for me, with only a month left to ord and about 3 months away from uni, I will probably be researching for any summer internship or maybe a part-time job
