He keeps the credit union … Web: www.cuinsight.com Details We’ve all been through a job search at least a couple of times in our lives. If you’re looking for a new gig, here are 5 things you shouldn’t do.Only apply for jobs online: The internet is a great way to discover job openings, but sometimes you have to get off that couch and do some work. A resume can make you look good, but a smile and a handshake can really sell the first impression, so don’t be afraid to get out there and pound the pavement.Tell co-workers about it: You may think you have some close friends at the office, but things always seem to get around, so it’s probably best to keep news of your job search to yourself. The last thing you want is to have your boss scrutinizing your every move.Apply for jobs you’re overqualified for: You find yourself not having much luck getting interviews for jobs you’re qualified for, so you think it may be best to aim a little lower. Wrong. You’re good at what you do. Those jobs are too easy for you. Hiring managers know this. They know you’ll be bored and unchallenged. Go after those jobs that will test your skills and abilities.Go to every interview: Sometimes the interview process can be overwhelming. Sometimes in the middle of the process your gut tells you that you’re in the wrong place. I once had a hiring manager call to reschedule a 3rd interview with her company. The minute I hung up the phone, I immediately knew the job wasn’t for me. I called her back and told her the truth. She appreciated me not wasting her time.Accept the first offer you get: You may be stressed and frustrated that you can’t find your dream job, but don’t get stuck in a bad situation because you’re having trouble being patient. Have faith that you’ll find something better and let the process run its course. You’ll be much happier accepting a dream job instead of just settling for a new job.last_img read more

ICC World Cup Rohit Sharma ton, Kuldeep Yadav help India stretch World Cup record to 7-0 against Pakistan

first_imghighlights India has a 7-0 head-to-head record against Pakistan in World Cups.Rohit Sharma hit his 24th century and third in World Cups.Virat Kohli became the quickest to 11000 runs. New Delhi: In the beginning, there was the threat of rain affecting one of the marquee contests in the ICC Cricket World Cup in Manchester. Fortunately, the heavens did not open up. Pakistan won the toss and looking at the cloud cover and the potential of rain, they chose to field. Sarfaraz Ahmed ignored Prime Minister and former Pakistan skipper Imran Khan’s advice that Pakistan should have batted first. The toss was the only thing that Pakistan won in Manchester on Sunday. Rohit Sharma’s brilliant 24th century, combined with Virat Kohli’s 51st fifty helped India amass 335/6, the highest in contests against Pakistan. For some time, Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam kept Pakistan afloat with a century partnership. However, Kuldeep Yadav produced the ball of the tournament by getting rid of Azam for 48 and Zaman for 62. The contest was killed quickly and when the rain finally came, the DLS calculations did not matter. The scoreline in World Cups for India became 7-0 as they won by 89 runs via DLS method to ensure Pakistan’s pain would be prolonged.Rohit had a new partner in KL Rahul following the injury to Shikhar Dhawan and they withstood a tough spell from Mohammad Amir. However, Rohit broke the shackles with a brilliant cut shot to deep cover off Hasan Ali while he crunched a pull shot over deep midwicket for a six. The right-hander cracked a short ball off Shadab Khan to the deep point fence while he clobbered yet another six. Rohit got to his landmark in style by smashing yet another short ball from the legspinner to the square third man fence for a boundary.Rahul continued his fine form and he supported Rohit well as he notched up his third fifty. However, Wahab Riaz struck a big blow as Rahul chipped a full ball to Babar Azam at short cover for 57. Rohit continued his fine run and he targeted the spinners brilliantly by lashing Mohammad Hafeez straight down the ground for a boundary. He survived a close call when he was in the 80s when he inside-edged Hasan Ali but the ball missed the stumps and raced away to the fine leg fence.Rohit entered the 90s in style by upper-cutting a six off Hasan Ali over the third man for his third six and he reached his milestone by cutting Shadab to the deep point fence for a single to bring up his century off just 85 balls. Rohit continued to rake in the records as he broke Virat Kohli’s mark of the highest individual score in World Cups against Pakistan, which was 107 in the 2015 World Cup in Adelaide.Giving Rohit company, Virat Kohli looked in great touch. Kohli reached his 51st fifty and with a flick off Hasan Ali to the long leg fence, the right-hander reached 11000 runs in ODIs. Sachin Tendulkar had held the previous record by scoring 11000 runs in just 276 innings during the Kanpur ODI against England in 2002 while Kohli achieved it in just his 222nd innings. A rain break for close to 50 minutes stalled momentum and Pakistan fought back with Amir taking the wicket of Kohli for 77. However, India managed to reach 335/6, their highest in World Cup contests against Pakistan and an uphill struggle awaited them.In response, there were some worried faces when Bhuvneshwar Kumar experienced tightness in his hamstring and left the field to be ruled out for the remainder of the clash. However, Vijay Shankar struck immediately with his first ball in the World Cup by trapping Imam-ul-Haq in front. For some time, Pakistan had reason to hope with Zaman and Azam looking in great touch. The left-hander notched up his fifty and showed glimpses of his brilliance like he had done in the ICC Champions Trophy in 2017. Azam struck a six off Yuzvendra Chahal and it seemed the game was nicely set.Kuldeep Yadav got the big wickets of Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman in quick succession.

Couple of overs later, Kuldeep accounted for Zaman and when Hardik Pandya dismissed Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik in quick succession, the contest was killed. When Shankar sent back Sarfaraz Ahmed, the contest was beyond Pakistan and when the rain arrived, it was a mere formality. For Pakistan, their saga of pain was prolonged against India and Manchester was just an addition.center_img For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more
