Top tips on how to get your dream job by building your personal brand. (For Students) by Toni Navarro

Have you ever wondered how would you get your dream job?

You are not alone, as so many people have thought about it at least once in their lives.

I recognise it’s a big goal to have, which I think can be achievable, however, a goal without a plan is just a wish.

So do you have a plan?
If you are looking to find a great opportunity, you need a proper plan.

So, taking into consideration, almost all executive recruiters conduct online research of potential candidates, it explains the importance of having a good online presence which starts by working on your personal branding.

Nowadays, personal branding is a hot topic, however, the majority of students don´t even know what it means.

That’s why I thought I would share a blog post with you some tips on how to improve your personal branding to stand out from the rest of the students.

Language Learning Tips for Beginners Study German language

Why German is an important language to learn

Have you ever considered studying the German language? Here are some reasons why studying German is a good idea!

1- German and English have many things in common.

The West-Germanic language is the mother language of many modern and widely spoken languages, such as English and Dutch. If you are a native English speaker, German will be easy to learn as both languages have a lot of vocabulary in common. Some examples are ‘Good morning’ and ‘Guten Morgen’, ‘football’ and ‘Fussball’ or ‘book’ and ‘Buch’. 

If your native language does not have West-Germanic roots, do not worry! There are more reasons why German is one of the most important languages to study.

The origins of Hola People (and an interview with its founder Esteban Tejedor)

Hola People is approaching its 5th year of age. Either if you have been following us since our early years, or you knew recently about this brand, you may be curious about how all this started.

We then must go back to the beginning of 2016, when Elena and Esteban Tejedor, two siblings from Madrid (Spain), headed to Liverpool to take part in a programme for entrepreneurs organised by the Liverpool & Sefton Chambers of Commerce.

After an application and an interview, they were successfully admitted along with several other young entrepreneurs.

Elena & Esteban - siblings entrepreneursSince 2009, Elena (the oldest of both) had already been managing —tirelessly and eventually successfully— her Spanish company called Aula inglés. Aula inglés helps Spanish speaking people to learn English (both in-person and online) and to travel and work abroad.

Esteban, in the meantime and during the previous years, had had a stimulant digital nomad life all around Southeast Asia, and had recently decided to take another step in his life by moving to the UK.

With the valuable support of this entrepreneurial programme in Liverpool, they decided to open a British branch of Aula inglés, doing —so to speak— the other way around, that is to help British and other English speaking people to learn Spanish and to find jobs in Spain.

Spark Up - Liverpool Chamber Commerce 2016

As local people seemed not to understand what “aula inglés” (English classroom) meant, they had to look for a different name, more suitable for the UK branch. After an intense brainstorming session, Hola People was born.

Soon after, Elena went back to Madrid to keep focusing on her Spanish company, while Esteban remained in Liverpool, owning the British one. To work independently, yet collaboratively, was the best decision… if you have any brothers or sisters, you will know that it is not always easy to agree on things, not to mention managing a business together!

So, Esteban found himself on the mission to make brand-new Hola People grow. Since most British do not show great interest to learn Spanish (fairly speaking, due mainly to lack of necessity), Esteban had to re-adjust the business model. Here is when he started to organise a variety of events in Liverpool, from language exchanges to Salsa classes, Spanish parties, day trips and eventually, personal and professional development courses and workshops. For this last category of events, Esteban created a different brand, QLU Project (QLU stands for Quantum Life University).

By today, Hola People and QLU Project (both brands contained by Atlas & Cosmos Ltd., the official name of the company) have organised hundreds of events, first in Liverpool and currently online, due to the current exceptional circumstances.

 

 

Our vision for the future is to be an international reference in the Education sector, not only by teaching languages and personal and professional skills but also providing worldwide travel and work opportunities.

We encourage you to accompany us on this journey by reading our blog updates, following our educative and funny posts on social media, and by trying our languages classes or personal development online courses.

Also, you can listen to Esteban’s encouraging story in this podcast in which he has been recently featured and where he explains more in deep the special personal journey that led him to found Hola People: Digital Nomad to Successful Entrepreneur Abroad. Esteban explains how traveling benefits you, and the way all of us can make our dreams come true.

Language courses online

Online learning is here to stay

Did you know that the word e-learning was coined back in 1998?

A little earlier than that, in 1995, only approximately 4% of US corporations used online learning. In 2017, this had increased to 77%, and 98% planned to incorporate it in their program by 2020 (source: eLearning Industry, Small Business Trends)

Little they know that, when this year came, those intentions would turn into an actual necessity. Now, practically, or they are online, or they are out!

Moreover, the worldwide e-learning market is projected to be worth $325 Billion in 2025, says Forbes magazine.
