Here are 5 things you should know.
1. How to answer the job interview question “What is your biggest weakness?” Tell them an actual weakness, and then explain how you use it to make you a better worker.
Do not say things like “I work too hard on perfecting each task,” or just “I work too hard,” and then stop there. An interviewer is looking to see if you know yourself and your own limits.
Before the interview, sit down and think about this question. Some of the better examples are;
“Give me a task to do by myself, and I’m fine. However, I don’t really work well on group projects, so I’ve gotten very good at dividing tasks, fairly and evenly.”
“Honestly, I’m lazy. But I like to think of my self as intelligently lazy. I have realized that getting the work done efficiently is less work overall than putting off all of the work until the last minute.”
“I’m not exactly a fast learner. It sometimes takes me longer than others to learn how to do a task. However, once I understand it, I don’t forget it.”
2. There’s a spot in Android phones where you can enter emergency information that can be accessed by EMS in an emergency.
You can enter emergency contacts, Allergy information, medications you are on, blood type, and if you are an organ donor.
Keep that information up to date. It could save your life.
Here’s where to find it.
Go into your setup menu and look for the USERS option. the emergency information section is in there. See below.
3. iPhones have a discreet way to call the police in event of an emergency by clicking the power button 5 times in a row.
Ever in a bind, here are quick ways to contact someone in the event of an emergency.
Samsung: Press power button 3 times and a photo will be taken with your front and rear camera. The photo will be sent to your emergency contacts as well as your location.
4. A $65 membership to the Airmedcare network means you and your household will be covered in the event of an airlift
Airlifts are expensive, often not covered by insurance, and it’s surprisingly easy to need one. The Airmedcare network covers 38 States. If you get an airlift/life-flight from one of their members, any out of pocket costs (often $800 base + $800 per mile) are covered if you have a $65/year membership.
5. If your MacBook Pro Retina screen has delamination wear, you are eligible for a free screen repair by Apple.
It’s a phenomenon referred to by the community as “Staingate,” where MacBook screens have to wear on the antireflective coating. This has caused complaints from many in the community, and Apple is repairing the screens without advertising this program.
If you bought a 2013 to 2015 MacBook Pro Retina model or a 2015 to 2017 Macbook in the past 4 years, you’re eligible for a free repair. Just call Apple Support and tell them your situation and they’ll ask for your serial number. Support might not know much about it because it’s not a well-known service program, but senior advisors will know what’s up.
