Green Wind

GREEN WIND PROYECT



We want to create a proyect related with the energy for the problem that Venezuela is happens,so one of the best ways to produce our own electricity is creating Wind Turbine.

A wind turbine converts the energy of wind into kinetic energy. If the mechanical energy is used directly by machinery, such as pumping water, cutting lumber or grinding stones, the machine is called a windmill. If the mechanical energy is instead converted to electricity, the machine is called a wind generator, wind turbine, wind power. Is our proyect we are going to work with mechanical energy to converted electricity.

Job Interview

What happens during a "job interview"?
During the interview you should be confident, enthusiastic and prepared. Listen carefully to what the interview has to say and ask questions about the company. Confidence is of utmost important because if you do not convey to the interviewer that you like yourself and believe in yourself then there is no reason to hire you.

What should I wear for my job interview?
Dressing the part is never something that will get you the job, regardless of how clean your shirt or shiny your shoes. However, it could put the employer off if you fail to follow some basic rules:

• Not too casual - If you get the vibe that casual is OK then stay on the smart side of casual. Ripped jeans, threadbare t-shirts and scruffy trainers should all be left at home. A smart pair of jeans and an open necked shirt is the bare minimum that is expected.

• No headwear – Under no circumstances wear a cap, beanie or hoodie to an interview – you’ll look like you’ve got something to hide. There are obvious religious and medical exceptions to this rule.

• Get the right fit – If you’ve had to borrow an ill-fitting suit for an interview, or just generally like to wear your clothes a little too loose or tight, try and find something a little more regular.

• No flashing – Although it may work in certain industries, cleavage and midriffs should be covered up for job interviews. You should be relying on your other assets to secure you the role.

• Wacky ties – As hilarious as you think they are, your interviewer is unlikely to see you as a new fun addition to the team, instead seeing someone who’s not serious about the job.

• Don’t accessorise too much – remember you want your interviewer to be concentrating on what you’re saying, not the obscure purple broach you’re wearing.

• Subtle make up – You could use make-up to emphasise your eyes and mouth, but should steer clear of anything too outrageous.

• Strong odours – Too much perfume or too little deodorant can both be big turn offs, as can cigarette smells so make sure you smell nice, but neutral.

• Facial hair – The old phrase “Never trust anyone with a beard” is less adhered to nowadays so feel free to go in with your usual fur. However, do make sure it’s well trimmed and clean.

• Piercings and tattoos – Another feature that is increasingly common, and one unlikely to deter an employer. If you can’t remove them, keep any studs small and cover any offensive or obscene body art.
