The most important part of getting a job is being able to sell yourself to an employer. You can sell yourself on paper with a resume, in person through an interview or both.

Your Resume

A written summary of your background is called a resume. You may send a resume to a potential employer along with a request for a personal interview. In this way you are able to reach many more employers than would be possible if you tried to see each one in person.

A good resume lets the employer know many things about you in advance. He can then decide whether it would be worth while to ask you to come in for an interview. Keep in mind that your resume is a picture of you. Keep it neat, simple, and, above all, truthful. Show that you are a reasonable person willing and able to do the job called for. Your resume should tell (1) who you are, (2) your education, (3) your work experience, and (4), possibly, people who will give references for you.

The Job Interview

The interview is probably the toughest part of job hunting. You are face to face with the person who is going to decide whether you will get the job. You will have only about 15 minutes to make a good impression. Get to the interview a few minutes early/ Your appearance is important. Be clean and dress conservatively. Be prepared to answer questions about yourself. If you have not sent in a resume, give one to the interviewer. Be polite and keep calm. Above all, do not argue with him.

The person who interviews you may ask you to take a short test to show if you have the skills needed for the job.

THE INTERNET

The Internet, or the Net, as it is more often called in the English speaking countries, is considered to be one of the most important inventions of the twentieth century. Some people say that it is like having thousands of consultants who are ready to answer any of your questions.

It is a cheap and reliable source of information — and not only that. You can also send documents all over the world, sample new music, visit museums all over the world, read books, exchange letters with your friends in another continent and receive their answer in a quarter of an hour, sell and buy things, play games, read the latest news and do a lot of other things.

But one shouldn't treat the Net as means of amusement when there is nothing else to do. In fact, the Internet has nowadays become a very important means of business correspondence, financial transaction marketing, and much more. In fact, in the nearest future it will become as (or more) important as fax or telephone.

The Internet stands for international network of computers that are linked together to exchange information. The computers are joined through high-speed connections. To get on the Net, all you have to do is to connect your PC to any of these networked computers via an Internet Access Provider. The Net has capabilities for cheap, global and immediate communication. It may grow to dominate areas of publishing, news and education, banking and customer support.

HUMAN RIGHTS

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, proclaimed by the General Assembly in 1948, sets out basic rights and freedoms to which all women and men are entitled — among them the right to life, liberty and nationality, to freedom of thought, conscience and religion, to work, to be educated, to take part in government.

Together with the Declaration, these rights constitute the International Bill of Human Rights.

The Declaration laid the groundwork for more than 80 convention and declarations on human rights, including conventions to eliminate racial discrimination and discrimination against women; convention on the rights of the child; the status of refugees and the prevention оf genocide; and declarations on self-determination, enforced disappearances and the right to development.

With the standards-setting work nearly complete, the UN is shifting the emphasis of its human rights work to the implementation of human rights laws. The UN Commission on Human Rights, an intergovernmental body, holds public meetings to review the human rights performance of States.

Promoting respect for human rights is increasingly central to UN development assistance. In particular, the right to development is seen as part of a dynamic process, which integrates all civil, cultural, economic, political and social rights and improves the well-being of all individuals in a society. Key to the enjoyment of the right to development is the eradication of poverty, a major UN goal.

HOUSES IN THE USA

The USA is often pictured as a country of skyscrapers. In fact, it is not quite so. The tall buildings are located in the centre (downtown), housing offices of large firms, banks and shops. Real America begins with little cosy houses designed for one family with children. Each house has its own style and "face"; its inhabitants decorate it with love and care. Of course, young people usually don't bother about having a house of their own until their mid-twenties, and prefer renting an apartment to buying a house. As soon as they get engaged, they start looking for a suitable house to live in. Engagement lasts from half a year to three years (sometimes even longer), but anyway by the age of thirty the young couple starts living in a house of their own.

A typical house is two-storeyed. On the ground floor a sitting room, hall and a kitchen are situated, while upstairs there are bedrooms. A rage is downstairs. An American will say: "I live in a two-bedroom use" which means the house is not very large, or: "There are five bedrooms in my house", which means the house is quite large. In front of the house there is usually a small garden or a lawn. In the basement there is often a laundry and sometimes even a gym! Winters are seldom severe in the USA, so the walls are not thick. The houses are built very quickly — it will take a building company three to four months to build a new house. Of course, there are all modern conveniences.

The houses may be located rather far from the centre. Living far from the centre is not a problem as every family member has a car.
