Job Search Tips for 2024

1. When invited for a job interview, please acknowledge receipt and availability. This creates a good first impression 0ppin the mind of the recruiter.

2. When applying via email, always send out your CV as PDF unless advised otherwise, this is because your word document can be distorted depending on the device it is opened with.

3. Don't send out your CV without writing anything in the body of your email. It is just like sending someone a picture or document via inbox without greeting and telling them why you sent the pics. A brief introduction of yourself, why you are applying for the role.

4. Always use the title of the job you are applying for as the subject of your email. A recruiter could have advertised for 4 roles at the same time, your email subject helps the recruiter know what role you applied for. It's even worse when your email has no subject and body massage. So, how on earth do you want the recruiter to know why you sent your CV.

5. To avoid frustration, apply for jobs you meet at least 60% and above of its requirements. The more jobs you apply for without feedback, the more frustrated you become.

6. Always read job adverts well and follow instructions. You are not the only one applying for that job, don't give the recruiter a reason to discard you immediately. If you can't follow a job advert instruction, is it when you get the job that you will follow instructions?

7. Don't wait until you get an interview invitation before you start preparing. Prepare daily, read, watch videos and practice.

8. Get a good LinkedIn profile and be active. The benefits are better experienced than told.

9. Work on your CV. Recruiters don't know you, they would judge you from what they see before deciding if they want to meet with you.

11. Please don't stay idle. Find something, volunteer, learn skills that can set you apart.

12. Don't be ashamed that you are job seeking, talk about it, talk about what you can do, talk about your learnings and preparations.

13. You can go into a lot of career paths now regardless of what you studied in your first degree.

14. Google is your friend, go online, search for things using keywords, "where can in volunteer for an NGO," Companies in....."etc. When you get them, you can send them cold emails or even find their staff on LinkedIn and send them messages. Tell them your interest in the field they are into & how you have been taking courses on it.

15. Be positive. Don't dwell on what should be, face reality and dig it out. "There is no job", but people are getting jobs daily. Be amongst them.

16. Try to have fun, we all are leaving this world empty and no one knows when.

Another jobs galore for health workers

As the New Dawn administration continues to recruit health personnel to reach the approved establishment, Minister of Health Sylvia Masebo says those who are yet to be employed should not despair.

There are currently about 75,038 health workers in the country against the approved establishment of 139,590.

Last year, 11,200 workers were recruited while 3,000 are being employed before the end of this year. Next year, 4,000 will be employed.

On a special interview programme on ZNBC television on Sunday night, Ms Masebo said Civil Service Commission (CSC) will today publish 2,792 names of successful applicants for this year’s recruitment of health workers.

“It’s not 3,000 because the other balance of 208 is for general workers like drivers, guards,” she explained.

“Those are being filled up by the respective districts and provinces; we didn’t have to mix them up with the specialised health workers. We felt that with the decentralisation policy, there was no need for Lusaka to employ a driver and send them to Chilubi.

“We [Ministry of Health headquarters] are just dealing with specialised staff like doctors, nurses, laboratory technicians and others.”

Ms Masebo said the recruitment has been done with participation from concerned stakeholders.

“Whatever we have agreed is what is going to come out. I’m satisfied with the process,” she said. “If you applied whether to be a nurse, a doctor or a public health officer and you find that you have not been picked this time, don’t despair.

Remember this 3,000 is for 2023 and we still have 2024 where we will employ 4,000. Don’t be discouraged if your name was not picked but you qualify. We have you in our hearts.”

📌 Faulty posture associated with: * anxiety * bad habit.
📌 Repeated minor trauma
📌 Genetic weakness.
📌 Occupational stress: Flexion of the neck for long time and
📌 Carry weight on his head.

⭕PATHOLOGY
Degeneration of the disc: It begins within the annulus fibrosis in the form of slight tears of the annular fibers and cracks appear at various sites and as a result nuclear herniation through the torn annulus. Also, osteophytes formation and apophyseal joints (Facet Joints) osteoarthritis.

⭕MANIFESTATIONS
They are determined according to the direction of osteophytes and tissues compressed by these osteophytes.

Local manifestations
- Neck pain: due to mid-cervical pathology
- Localized tenderness: in paraspinal muscles.
- Restriction and limitation of neck ROM.
