I am a Job Search Facilitator. That means I help folks find new jobs, and careers. Mostly writing resumes and telling people not to pick their nose on job interviews.
I am a turd. Do not emulate me, or Omphalos shall mock you as well.

Last time I was out of work I used Monster.com and was hired in two weeks. I used their resume maker and attached my own, made in word.

No danger of being bumped up into a higher tax bracket, I trust... ;)

Last month(well, I get Jan's salary in Feb') I just barely got into the next tax bracket, which is almost twice the normal pay for minimum wage.
That, of course, means I worked twice as much. :cry:

To those interested, min' wage here is about 3900 NIS(8 daily hours, 5/6 days a week), discluding bonuses, travel expenses etc.
In memory of Perach, who suffered and died needlessly.

I wish I could have been with you that one last time.

I must have done something wrong... I get that that equals 1195.78 Canadian dollars an hour. Seems slightly off.

Another proud graduate of the Frank Herbert School of Math! :P


But you're right as far as the conversion, 'cause I get 1194.29 Canadian dollars for 3900 NIS, too. (And if you agree with me, naturally you're right. :P )

He didn't exactly specify hours, though.

Orald: what is the time period for that 3900 NIS? :roll:

(And there's no such English word as "disclude", btw.)

Argh, I said 8 daily hours, 5/6 days A week, and mentioned January's pay etc. It means all that money for a month's pay.
That's not high, that's quite low. Hence they call it "minimum wage".

Say 1$ US=4 NIS, you get 1000$ per month. So I got closer to 2000$ last month(being Jan's salary).

And while I do agree it's rather low(after all, it is min' wage), I do believe most people are just bitching about their salaries because they don't know how to spend wisely and how to save.

BTW, I meant exclude. I was writing this after my night shift and could barely hold my eyes open at the time. :oops:
