Why You Need to Do Bullying Maintenance to Protect Your Child
Are you sick and tired of your child dealing with bullying at school?
Well, once your child has slowed bullying down, you and your child will have to continue to do bullying maintenance from time to time.
What do I mean by that?
Many bullies will stop when your school has followed 11 SIMPLE STEPS FOR ZAPPING BULLIES. But, there is almost a guarantee that after some time has passed, they will begin bullying again.
In my experience as a school counselor, bullying is not as intense second time. Bullies are not cured overnight. They try over and over to tease and harass your child.
So, what do you do now?
You do "bullying maintenance"!
What is that?
You need to repeat some of steps you took to get bullying to stop -
Ask school counselor to speak to bully again. The counselor strongly reminds bully of harsh consequences of bullying. The bully's parent can be called...possibly for second or third time. An administrator can take disciplinary action.

Masterful Resumes – Interview Traps
It's tough to avoid typical interview traps if you're unsure what they are. Here are a half dozen to watch out for.
1. Confusing an Interview with an Interrogation.
Most candidates expect to be interrogated. An interrogation occurs when one person asks all questions and other gives answers. An interview is a business conversation in which both people ask and respond to questions. Candidates who expect to be interrogated avoid asking questions, leaving interviewer in role of reluctant interrogator.
2. Making a So-Called Weakness Seem Positive.
Interviewers frequently ask candidates, " What are your weaknesses ?" Conventional interview wisdom dictates that you highlight a weakness like "I'm a perfectionist," and turn it into a positive. Interviewers are not impressed, because they've probably heard same answer a hundred times. If you are asked this question, highlight a skill that you wish to improve upon and describe what you are doing to enhance your skill in this area. Interviewers don't care what your weaknesses are. They want to see how you handle question and what your answer indicates about you.
3. Failing to Ask Questions. Every interview concludes with interviewer asking if you have any questions . The worst thing to say is that you have no questions. Having no questions prepared indicates you are not interested and not prepared. Interviewers are more impressed by questions you ask than selling points you try to make. Before each interview, make a list of five questions you will ask. “I think a good question is, ‘Can you tell me about your career?'” says Kent Kirch, director of global recruiting at Deloitte. “Everybody likes to talk about themselves, so you're probably pretty safe asking that question.”
