Bulldogs prepare for unknown at Brookvale

first_imgThe Sea Eagles have a new playmaking and hooking combination, an unrecognisable forward pack from last year and a completely new coaching staff, but Canterbury players say there are still a few givens whenever you take on the Sea Eagles on their home patch.”You know they’re going to turn up, they obviously have a new coach and a few new players but the mentality of Manly’s never changed,” Dogs prop Aiden Tolman said.”You know when you play them you have to be on your game and it’s going to be a good test for us Round 1, over there, away from home, the crowd’s always against you and they’ve got a good side so it’s going to be a tough game but we want to get the season off with a win.”They’ve got a new forward pack but it’s the same faces we’ve played in other teams. It won’t make the job any easier.”Lock Greg Eastwood has played alongside some of Manly’s new faces; like many of his teammates he once wore blue and white with enforcer Marty Taupau, while Eastwood has more recently played Test football for New Zealand with Taupau and another new Manly recruit, Lewis Brown.”They’ve got a new side and a new coach so we don’t know what to expect; we’ve just got to focus on our own game,” Eastwood said.”They’ve recruited real well this year. There was a lot of talk they needed to add size to their pack and they’ve done that. You know what you’re going to get with [Taupau]. He’s going to try and run over you every chance he gets.”Nate Myles has been real consistent over a long period and Lewis Brown is going to do a job for them. We’ve got to limit their metres and help our side get on the front foot.”It’s always a hard game going to Brookvale, even when they’ve got a few injuries here and there, you know what they’re going to do. They don’t want to disappoint their fans, especially at their home ground they’ll come out strong but I’m sure our boys will do the job.”Blues back-rower Josh Jackson suggested his old teammate Taupau would add plenty of energy and physicality to Manly’s middle.”They’ve got a fair few other new players there. I think they’ve done really well with the players they’ve brought in and a new coach as well so it’s a little bit unknown exactly what they’re going to throw up at us,” Jackson said.”They’ve done really well to get those players in, they’re all quality players, they’re all representative players.”He added it was hard for his side to know what to focus on with so many new players and a new coach.”If we can just match their energy early and hang in there for 80 minutes we’ll give ourselves every chance.”The first couple of weeks is always a bit of a trial period to see how those things go and you adjust your game accordingly,” Jackson said.Jackson also backed his side’s big pack to adapt to the reduced interchanges and shot clock as well as any side.”I think we should be all right; we’ve got [props] Aiden Tolman and James Graham who could punch out 80 if they had to and probably do it quite easily, then myself and Tony Williams usually play longer minutes as well so I think we should be all right,” he said.last_img read more

6 Times Being an Out-Of-State Job Applicant Helps (and Hurts) You

first_img Interior Designer – St. Louis & Dallas Oculus Saint Louis, MO N/A 23 hours ago 23h 3.1★ 23 hours ago 23h When clicking submit on an online job application, you’ve probably stared straight into your computer screen and wondered whether your application would ever be seen.These uneasy feelings are compounded when you apply for a job in another state. Even if your resume lands into human hands, something as simple as your mailing address could hold you back.Join the club. About 86 percent of millennials — and 77 percent of employees overall — say they’re willing to relocate for work, according to a 2017 Bamboo report.3 Times Being Out of State Could Hurt YouWhen submitting your application for an out-of-state position, you’ve probably reconsidered including your home address on your rockstar resume. Some applicants even worry about the area code of their contact phone number.Hiding your location from hiring managers might get your resume chosen from the stack. But it will be revealed during the interview process.Here are three scenarios when living out of state might prevent you from getting a job.1. The Job and City Are in High DemandThe more widely shared a job post, the more applicants it attracts, and the harder it is to score an interview.These days, you might see application tickers noting how many views a job post has received, or even how many applications it has garnered.So if you’re living in a smaller city and looking to make a move to San Francisco, New York or somewhere in between, realize you’re not alone.Human resources managers might be concerned that even if you’re the better candidate, you’re also a riskier one. You’ll be making a big move and having to juggle your new living situation with your new job.To make yourself more attractive, you could use your cover letter to show you have a handle on the new city. You could mention, for example, that you already have a new home lined up. You might even cite examples of times you adapted to new surroundings in the past.How to Write the Perfect Cover Letter2. The Position Is Entry-LevelCompanies expand their budgets to hire senior employees; some are willing to go far and wide to bring in the right leaders. For entry-level roles, however, a human resources team might not want to devote part of its budget to flying in and hosting out-of-state job interviews. New graduates with general skillsets are easy to find locally.“Nobody wants to be on the hook for the expenses involved with funding your relocation if the relationship doesn’t last,” said Tyson Spring, founder of Elever Professional, an executive search firm and staffing company.If you’re a new or recent graduate, you could erase a company’s concerns over cost by offering to pay for your moving expenses.3. The Role Requires Local KnowledgeIf you want to work for the state government, many states like Colorado require you to have been a resident for at least a year. In the private sector, you might see similar requirements on job descriptions or learn about them during a first interview.Even if no requirement exists, you might be penalized for a lack of familiarity with a city or region.“The tech scene in Austin has a far different culture than the tech scene in Silicon Valley and the Bay Area; the New York advertising and media culture differs dramatically from Los Angeles,” Spring said.“This is not to say that people can’t make the switch,” he continued, “but when faced with two very similar skillsets, the off-the-resume attributes start to come into the assessment.”Spring added that a candidate’s network and knowledge of a given city could make a local candidate a better bet. The stronger network might make the new hire more helpful with recruiting and employee referrals, for example.Strengthen your connections in the city where you’re hoping to live and work. You can do this by joining a national association tied to your field and attending conferences. You might also look through your LinkedIn connections to see if any of your college classmates ended up working in your preferred city.3 Times Being Out of State Could Actually HelpMany job applications will ask you if you’re willing to relocate for the position. That reveals your status as an out-of-state applicant right away.Here are three scenarios when that status might help your case.1. You Offer Unique Skills or ExperienceThe scope of your desired role should tell you a lot about whether the hiring manager will prefer a local candidate. If you’re hoping to work for a national corporation that happens to be housed in Portland, Oregon, for example, you won’t be expected to be an expert in the Pacific Northwest. In fact, they might even value an outsider that adds diversity to the team.But there will still be a cost to bringing you on board.“In instances where relocation is budgeted [for], your chances of being hired are probably just as good as someone local,” said Tiffani Murray, a human resources consultant. “The reason for this is that the company has already decided, through researching … the market for talent, that they may have to look outside of the city for the best hire.”Having unique experience or skills can push you over the top. When applying for out-of-state roles, ask yourself what helps you stand out from the competition. If you’re a content marketer who can also code webpages or design infographics, for example, that might set you apart.When you discover whatever it is that’s unusually useful about your background, highlight it in your application. Make the case that it’s worth paying for at least the travel expenses required for an in-person interview.2. You Have Connections to the CityUnderstandably, hiring managers are put off by out-of-state applicants who say they’re willing to shift their entire life to take a particular job. They’d feel especially guilty if you moved across the country only for the job to not work out months later.When possible, being transparent about your interest in a job and your ties to the company’s city can help your case. Maybe you tell the hiring manager about your nearby friends or family, your past trips to the city or that you’re moving with a significant other who’s already found a job.These sorts of reasons for relocating give a company the impression that you know what you’re getting yourself into, that you’re ready to lay down roots. That lessens their risk of hiring an out-of-state applicant who sours on the new city and decides to quit the job.If you don’t have ties to the city, don’t worry. You might also try to use the opposite to your advantage. If you’re leaving San Francisco for the lesser-known Santa Fe, for example, you might pitch yourself as someone having big-market experience who can help drive innovation.4 Things You Need to Do Before Relocating for a Job3. You Can Cover Your Moving ExpensesIf you’re feeling bold, you can offer to cover your own moving expenses, helping reduce the company’s cost of hiring you.I have secured entry- and mid-level jobs in big cities on three separate occasions, in part, by explaining to the hiring manager that I:Was planning to move to their city anywayWas able to cover my moving costsWas familiar with the regionHad family or friends nearbyBeing a relatively recent graduate furthered my argument. The companies knew I was green and ready to pay my own way toward more professional experience. But you don’t have to be in your early 20s for this strategy to work.Consider covering the following details in your killer cover letter:When you’re relocatingWhether you have ties to the cityWhat experience you can bring from other citiesYou might wait for the company to ask whether you’re willing to finance your move, in case they make the offer first. Just ensure that you lay out the timeline of your move. A company might be willing to wait on you if you’re paying your way to town.Start Applying for Out-of-State JobsWhen you’re an out-of-state job applicant, you don’t just have to prove you’re right for the job. You also have to prove you’re right for the area.Unlike local candidates, you’ll have to show you can adjust to the cost of living and a potentially different salary in a new state. It’d be wise to perform your own research on the job’s pay, the state’s taxes and your possible living situation before even applying.If the math makes sense and the job description is a match, it’s up to you to put in the work to make the job happen.This article was originally published on Student Loan Hero.

That doesnt mean things are cut and dried by just

first_imgThat doesn’t mean things are cut and dried by just adding support for containers to vSphere, however. VMware, said Adams, deals with IT admins, not with developers directly. As a result, supporting containers doesn’t mean just offering the ability to package and run containers in your infrastructure.“IT admins say, ‘I get you like containers, but you have to give me enterprise capabilities: security, network, data persistence, SLAs, and a consistent level of management,’ ” said Adams. “Since VMworld last year, we’ve been dropping things piece by piece to make all this work.”Today, containers are supported through Project Bonneville, an effort to make vSphere see containers as if they were virtual machines, and vice versa. This means vSphere users can now deploy and manage containers and virtual machines without caring which one is which.VMware is preparing the first update for vSphere, which will arrive later this year. It will include updates to vMotion, which includes cross-data-center syncing, designed to keep ISO files and other info consistent across data centers. This feature also helps to keep virtual machines synced around the globe.Going forward, Adams said that containers will continue to see first-class support from VMware. The end goal is to provide enterprise-grade support, management and services for containers in the enterprise. While he admitted this will be a lot of work, he reiterated that VMware is committed to the task. VMware doesn’t care if you use virtual machines or containers at this point. The company made this abundantly clear as it opened its annual VMworld conference in San Francisco yesterday. It took this opportunity to discuss improvements in vSphere 6.0, which allow containers to become first-class citizens of the data center.Michael Adams, director of vSphere product marketing at VMware, said that vSphere 6.0 can deal with hybrid clouds in a few ways. While it can now handle virtual machines and containers as if they were the same thing, it can also spin those instances up internally or externally, providing what enterprises think of as a more traditional hybrid cloud model.(Related: Other news out of VMworld 2015)Adams said that the interest in containers has fueled VMware to build toward support and the types of enterprise offerings needed to make containers viable. “We’ve been dropping a lot of bread crumbs around what we were going to do with containers,” he said. “A lot of it was about how do we bring together the best of both worlds. Developers like containers because they’re fast and portable.”last_img read more
