As a women, we are faced with many challenges. We are constantly being told how to live our lives. As a women you should be able to make your own decisions that will benefit you and lead you towards your own success without being scared of being judged.
As a woman in the HR environment, I have my own challenges. I am not respected by my male counterparts and they don't trust the decisions I make - which is frustrating considering that we are all equal.

either than the TRUTH. Honesty is an important element company’s need from
their employees. Companies don’t want to hire individuals who they won’t be
able to trust because dishonest employees tend to be also unethical and ethics
is very important for many…
Writing a CV can
be a stressful experience especially if you do not know what information to
include about yourself, educational background and work experience. And it can
be even more stressful if you don’t have any work experience. I work in the HR
environment and I see over 20 CV’s everyday with mistakes, that harm an individual’s
chances of being invited for an interview.
This will serve
as a guideline as to which details you should never include:
details are important but avoid things such as your hobbies, age, likes &
dislikes, religious beliefs, height & weight. This kind of information is
unnecessary and no one has the time to read through it all.
expectations. This is a definite NO. It only makes you seem like you are only
after money & not interested in developing your career. Leave salary
discussions until you have been invited to the interview.
3. Avoid lies
& false claims. If you don’t have a degree or work experience clearly state
