Hire Toronto Temp Agencies And Find The Best Workforce

In the past couple of years, Toronto temp agencies have turned out to be the best way to save time as well as money because candidates just have to hire the agency and explain their requirements so that they can start finding jobs for them. These agencies are equally important for job seekers and employers and therefore, it is also necessary for candidates to maintain good relationship with them. As for employers, they are the extension of their HR department, meaning that the company will be able to find out the best employees to continue their business. Below are some tips for employers to maintain their relationship with the temporary staffing agencies:

Need Recognition Before Hiring An Agency

The reason that most of the employers are not satisfied with their Toronto temp agencies is the lack of knowledge about their needs. They never take time to analyze their business’s requirements and even, do not have detailed job descriptions. The information is necessary for the staffing agency because if they do not have enough information about what sort of services their clients need, they would not be able to find out the best candidates.


While writing job descriptions, the companies do not only have to highlight the job duties but, they should have to mention the additional skills and certifications that candidates should possess. Like, if the job requires candidates to have a certain type of personality, employer should mention that. They have to keep in mind that no information is small as minor factors can even help the Toronto temp agencies to come up with the right pool of candidates for the employer.

Explaining Success

Another aspect that should be known to the staffing agency is what is success for the company and how they are supposed to proceed to it. Sometimes, companies need temporary help while sometimes, they want human resource for a longer time period.

Whatever be the requirements, the primary thing is that the employer should explain what sort of services they need and for how much time they would be hiring. Even, they have to mention if there are chances that any of the temporary worker would get permanent position or not.

Giving Feedback

Toronto temp agencies always ask candidates to give their feedbacks over their services. when the candidates are sent to the employer, it’s their responsibility to give feedback over the professionalism and expertise of the candidates because this way, the agency will be able to know the areas to improve or can even think of modifying their policies. Also, when the employer selects a candidate, they should let the agency know and give reasons of his/her selection.

All in all, it can be said that the relationship between the employer and Toronto temp agencies should be healthy and strong so that both can get benefits from one another. Both parties have to fulfill their responsibilities and make sure that there is nothing wrong in their relationship. So, to create a long lasting and healthy relationship, it is recommended to log on to and ask their experts to help in finding the best candidates.



Successfully Prepare For Exams

Successfully Prepare For ExamsExams can be intimidating for many students, especially those who do not feel like they are ready to sit and take them. However, as a student, you are as ready for the exams as you have prepared for them and this makes it very important to start preparing for the same early. The last thing you want to do is cram everything last minute because the chances of forgetting and getting confused are high and it could actually leave you blank just when the paper is before you. Luckily, there is always something you can do to make sure you are ready for the exams and positive that you will pass.

1. Create a study timetable

Studying when made a habit allows enough time for what you have learned to actually sink. Create a study plan for every subject long before the exam period nears and make sure that you stick to it. This way, by the time the exams arrive, you will only need to polish a little and you are good to go. Balance out the subjects, but allocate a little more study time for those that seem a bit challenging for you.

2. Get into study groups

Other than studying as much as you can alone, study groups can prove to be very helpful. This is because you get to help each other out on different areas as friends, and since you can interact well, the studying becomes a win for all. You can give help in areas you are best in and get help in areas that are a bit of a challenge to you.

3. Get old exam papers and practice

It is a great way of getting you familiar with question structures. From the old exam papers you might also discover areas you have not tackled well, giving you enough time to check them out. If you are not very sure with paper timing, the old exams can also work as your guide so when the actual exam is here you know just how to spread the allocated time to complete the paper satisfactorily.

4. Revise even during school holidays

The power of revision cannot be ignored and you should ensure that you get some time for revision, even during school holidays. Revision can help you evaluate what you know about different topics, especially when the exams are closer. It would be a good idea to use diagrams and charts when revising so you can get a brief format that helps you recall what you need to remember during the exams. You can try an online revision that makes it possible for you to revise with the help of teachers from your mobile device or computer.

5. Get help

The truth is there could be areas that still prove hard to sink even with your lengthy study times and revisions with friends. In case you have such areas, get help from your teachers or trainers so you can have them straightened out for you before the exams. A short study session with your subject teacher can make all the difference for you.

Revision is very important, especially for students awaiting their final exams. With online revision, you can get the assistance you need from any given place using apps that are mobile phone friendly.


How to Deal With Depression at School

In my previous article I defined what school depression is and in this article I will show you how to deal with school depression nevertheless I should mention that there are some cases that need professional help and medication in addition to dealing with it the way it is described here.

Dealing with school depressions needs from you to switch your thinking from being indulged in yourself with all its thoughts, emotions and feelings to be indulged into a high power, but what is a higher power?

Good question, a higher power is a power I know it is bigger than me which is loving, caring and compassionate. Most people when thinking about higher power they think about God, it is totally fine but you can have your own definition of your own higher power, it could be:

  • Listing to someone after asking him for help
  • Talking about your feelings, emotions and thoughts to someone
  • Joining a group of people who have similar problems
  • Reading a book about your problem
  • Praying

These are all examples of a higher power which requires from you to do some effort so that you get the help you need. The results of reaching your higher power will not show overnight but will take some time for its effect to show on you.

You should mainly focus on your spiritual state and how you can increase it because mainly school depression is when you always feel bad about school because of many reasons:

  • You can’t have friends
  • You feel bad from some teachers
  • Some teachers treat you bad
  • Some colleagues treat you bad

You are always in a state of thinking about the problems that you are in and how to solve them till you reach a stage where you are fed-up from trying all old tricks and decided that you be alone the most time possible. Even if you are among people, you feel alone, you try hardly to talk to new students in a fail attempt to build a relationship.

All that you know is to mimic someone you are impressed about when talking to people, you feel you don’t have a strong personality or that you worth anything, this is when you should start being yourself.

This article doesn’t contain clichés that you should be yourself whatever others will judge you, but instead a strong to-do points that can be easily applied.

What you should do about your school depression?

To be prepared for the to do list you should first believe that you are powerless to change your thoughts, feelings and emotions, you are also powerless to change anyone, period.

You should also be honest with yourself that you want to change to have a better life, you should have an intention to change and an open mind to absorb the following:

You should always trigger what make you angry and avoid it: most times you feel angry or pissed off when someone is talking, acting or mentioning you in a bad way that make you angry of pissed off. To avoid being angry or pissed off you should take yourself out of what make you feel angry or ask the person who is teasing you in an assertive way to stop talking to you the way he is talking by saying “please talk to me in a better way” you can also add “I don’t accept your way”, saying this in a decent and assertive way will make you avoid feeling angry or pissed off, if the person persists to piss you off you should leave him alone and go away. You are not making this because you are weak or that you cannot confront him, you make this for yourself so that you treat yourself better, and you can also ask him the next time to stop pissing you off.

Whenever you feel bad or cannot deal with a situation ask your high power to relief you: asking your higher power to relief you by saying to yourself “please God remove these feeling and thoughts” will help you feel better instantly, using this technique in a daily basis will help you feel better. You can also kneel on the ground each morning when you wake up and ask him to help you with your problem.

Engage with a group of students that have similar problems: joining a group who have similar problem is an excellent idea that you should do whenever possible so that when you talk about your feelings, emotions and thoughts you know they have similar problems and that they can give you suggestions about what to do in each problem you face.


How to Be Successful in the Classroom

All students like to be successful in classrooms including students who believe that they should be naughty in the classroom to require attention and respect. Success in classrooms are different for different students, success in classroom are categorized to:

• Student-to-colleagues social success

• Student-to-teachers social success

• Student academic and intelligence success in class

There are students who are successful building relationships with their colleagues in class without focusing on building good relationships with teacher or to get good grades in different classes.

There are also students who build good relationships with teachers, but not with their colleagues at class nor they get good grades in different classes.

The third type of students are those who focus solely on their academic success and to look more intelligent than others in class and they neglect the relationship part of the success in class.

In this post, I will not talk about balancing between the three types of success to be successful, but rather I will talk about how to be successful with yourself so that success in class can come automatically.

Most students who focus on balancing their success between their relationships with their colleagues, their relationships with their teachers and to get good academic grades in class focus on other’s impressions about them and react accordingly. This type of reacting will rather make you distracted more than being focused on success in class.

Focusing on your actions only can make you successful in the three categories of success in class and this can come only if you replaced what you think is right with what is right. Here is a story to illustrate this point:

Windy and Comfy are two girls in the same class. Windy tries hard to be successful like Comfy and Comfy, on the other hand, knows what she is doing and thus she is successful with her colleagues, teachers and academically.

Each one of them has some beliefs different than the other, Comfy’s beliefs are as following:

I should always compare myself with my previous self
My actions on different situations are what I represent to the world around me
Whatever I think or feel I should always be kind to others
I should set limits for people who skip their limits with me
I should always be honest and flexible to change myself when necessary
I worry one day at a time and don’t worry about the future
My experience is what I can share with others, not my opinions
On the other hand, Windy distracts herself, and her life follows, by her beliefs which are:

Impressing others is what I should do because everybody do the same
I have solutions for every problem others fall in
I am better than many other students
I should always keep busy
People are bad by nature and life is unfair
Every problem has a solution that I can help in it with my opinion
Each one of them build their actions and reactions in the classroom over their beliefs, these beliefs turn into thoughts and their thoughts turn into actions in every situation they experience.

One day in Windy’s and Comfy’s class, the history teacher asked a question to the class. This question is an introductory question for students to be prepared for the lesson. After asking the question the teacher mentioned that whom will answer this question correctly, he or she will have 10 marks in their attendance.

Windy’s thoughts were as following:

I must answer this question before anybody else
I should show others that I am intelligent and diligent
Everybody will be jealous when I have the 10 marks, that’s why I should impress them
I will do my best to answer this question
I know I can answer this question
On the other hand, Comfy’s thoughts were as following:

I am not sure if I know the right answer so let me listen to others first
I can raise my hand if no one says what’s in my mind
Either if I get the 10 marks or not I am OK
If someone takes the 10 marks I will be happy to congratulate him or her
After each challenging question like this I know what should I study harder in the subject
Windy is the first one to raise her hard so that she can answer the question but the teacher asks the question once again so that more students raise their hands. After two other students answered wrong on the question, the teacher chose Windy to answer the question but she also answered wrong.


How To Support Your Child’s Good Study Habits

Most parents today have problems with getting kids to study on their own. Since kids today are more preoccupied with watching TV, playing games on their computer and other gadgets, parents will really have a hard time getting them to stop doing these and start studying.

Once you see that your child has developed some good study habits, the next thing you have to do is to ensure that they continue practicing these and they do not fall back to their bad or lazy ways of studying.

As a parent, it can be a huge task to make sure that your child continues to practice good study habits. But there are some useful tips you can follow to support your child’s after-school learning activities at home. These tips include the following:

Work with your child in making a realistic timetable for studying. To make sure that your child follows through with his or her studying plan at home, guide him or her to come up with a timetable that your kid can easily follow. This timetable should include all your child’s other extracurricular activities such as his or her participation in sports or science clubs. When your child is not busy doing other things after school, he or she should be using this time productively. You can help him or her divide this time so that he can study or review all the subjects he or she is taking up in school.

Allow for some flexibility. Study plans were not designed to create feelings of deprivation and resentment in young kids. Your child does not need to start reviewing immediately at 4:00 in the afternoon and stop at 7:00 in the evening. If your child’s favourite TV show is on, you can let him or her finish watching it and then he or she can continue studying once it’s done. By doing so, your child won’t feel that he or she is forced to study and he or she will also have some time to have fun and enjoy some things in their young life.

Do your best to limit interruptions and distractions. Once you and your child agree on a study plan, make sure you only allow him or her check his or her phone for just 10 minutes, before he or she starts reviewing another subject. You can even keep their gadgets while they are studying and return these to them once they are done for the day.

Give your child 10 minutes per hour to rest and relax a bit. Lastly, most education experts recommend kids to study for 50 minutes and to give them a 10-minute break before they start on a different subject. Kids can use this 10-minute break to eat some snack and drink or get some fresh air out in the garden. This 10-minute break, although short, would be enough to rejuvenate your child.


How to Study Efficiently

Exam. This word might repeatedly bounce in your head this week. Why not? The semester is ending and paracetamol is the best-selling medicine. Well, everything is going to be fine, we are prepared. Oops, I bet not. Oh, I think I will be fine if the questions are not on this part. I bet you are not that confident, are you?

There is no debate on what’s the best way to excel in your exam. Preparation has always been the best way and it is not a straight road to go to in the first place. “What a heck?” you might say, but like my professor once said, “To the stars through rough roads”. Studying is hard and to excel is much harder. It is not a secret! I’ve been there.

There are times when I think that passing is just the opposite of the things that I have. What if I’ll do the opposite of the things that I usually do or have? Well, it might end to have a good result. Let’s see. Here are some things that, I think, affect my life a lot.

1. I am half-hearted.

If you want to pass, you must decide to make a hit! If you want to make a hit, you cannot do it half-heartedly. Do it with a full force. This is the first and most important psychological preparation, you’ll ever make. This will also be the spring of all the efforts you will do to make a difference in your study.

Well, I always think that I want it, but I always fail to do the things that I decided to do.

2. I cannot isolate yourself.

The first thing that comes into my head is a noisy environment. Kids shouting and running, worst, they will be knocking at your door repeatedly, if you won’t open it. If you want to pass, you must have focus. You cannot have that if you have no quite room to study in the very first place. You have to isolate yourself from the rest of the people.

3. I have no study conducive space.

I have no space I can call my study room. More, I have no decent study table, a good lamp, or a comfortable chair. Hey! This is very important. Comfort is necessary. Lasting longer, loving to stay, and wanting to come back are very important feelings. These are the benefits to name a few if you have a study conducive room. I always cherish these feelings every time it comes to me.

And oh, the ventilation. I remember when we were in Manila, you cannot really concentrate when you are all sweating and your migraine is pinching your head every second of the day.

Talking further about making your room a study conducive area, you might also consider the paint of your room. Yes, paint. Studies show that there exists a psychology of color and according to it, the best color for studying is green. The color green promotes feelings of well-being and harmony, nature, security, stability, and balance. So, if you wanted to study more effectively and efficiently then let’s repaint your study room.

4. When I study, I study endlessly.

The aim is to study, and please, take a break. I don’t really know brain works, but I guess it’s like a phone. If you used it too much, it will drain and you have to recharge it to use it. Well, charging takes some time and we ended up wasting too much time. Isn’t it? So take regular study breaks. Regular breaks help your brain absorb more information. A break every 45-50 minutes may do. Studies show that your brain will not work effectively after this time. Maybe it’s time to study smarter.

5. I study alone.

Do you study alone and ended up doing nothing? I think you should have a study buddy to inspire you. However, you have to make it sure that your companion really understands what you are doing.

6. I study it all in one blast.

A friend of mine said, “Studying is like you are saving in a bank. You have to put small amounts of money every payday”.

To pass, one must study every day. Small savings constantly done is better than big chunks, which will be gone in a few minutes. Had you ever experienced studying and then forgot everything that you just memorize and ending up saying, “I know that, but”. This is mostly because you are not so familiar with it. You just meet that once, if not twice.

7. Get motivated with other people.

Tired and very unmotivated? You tried to look inside you and you can’t find some inspiration? Then look at other peoples’ struggle and stories. For always, you can pick a story that will inspire you.

Tips To Choose The Best Platform For Online Education

One of the things that always comes up in conversations whenever I’m talking about my online business is what is the best way to get online education?

Now this is a very good question because just like offline education it is so important to make sure you go to the right school to learn. As we all know from our normal offline school days, the type and style of school will dramatically affect your career and the rest of your life. It will also dictate whether you learn well or don’t find a way through.

Now when you translate this to online people start to look for a quick fix and completely forget how important education is. In the online world it’s not just important but absolutely fundamental to your success online.

7 Top Tips For Choosing Your Online Education

So below I have listed out a few tips for choosing the right online education platform:

1. Make sure you know who your teachers are. Do your due diligence on them and check that they really know what they are talking about in this industry

2. Try and get a sneak preview of the platform you are going to be using. See if they supply some free training in addition to the paid type and if not then it’s fine just to ask them for some; if they refuse then you can probably be confident that the education within their paid section is not worth looking at

3. Check the pricing compared to other sites and platforms. Now don’t get too fixed on this because you definitely don’t just want to go for the cheapest one because the quality of your education will probably be affected. But shop around and go for a middle range site

4. Check to see if the site has any testimonials about it elsewhere on the web. One of the best ways to determine if something is good is to see what other people are saying about it. Check to see if they have a Facebook page and go visit it to see what the discussion is over there. You’re bound to find the odd bad comment but generally go with the majority as no site ever pleases every person.

5. Find out if you can stop payments at any time or if you are committed for a certain period of time. This is very important and it’s always a good lesson to read the small print in any case.

6. Try and contact the people who run the site to see if they respond and how quickly. If possible try and get to speak to them on the phone or Skype so that you can get a feel for the type and style of training you are going to get.

7. Finally, make sure you connect with the teachers because at the end of the day you are potentially going to be working with them for a long while so you need to get on. It’s not just a case of having a good teacher, you need to have someone you can almost call a friend as well.

I hope this article has helped you out and given you some useful information to make the right choice for your own online education going forward.
