Here are this week’s Life Pro Tips.
1. If you’re a high school student looking for a job and are eventually planning on moving to a new city after graduating, aim for a job at a large chain like a grocery store.
They will often facilitate job transfers so that you can have employment lined up when you move.
2. In emergency or disaster situations, you can relay important information to others via your outgoing voicemail greeting.
In an effort to conserve phone power or if it looks like you will have no way to recharge in an emergency, leave your last location, general safety status, or other important information on your outgoing voicemail message.
3. Whenever you are having work done on the house, always insist on being told the supplier of all the materials/parts (windows, doors, blinds, tiles etc. etc.) when you need spares 5 years down the line, there is no guarantee your contractor will still be around to tell you.
4. When completing work from home, change into clothes you’d wear out of the house, and out of your track pants/pajamas.
A small way to mentally wake up and feel ‘prepped’ for the working day.
5. Generators in disaster scenarios commonly lead to carbon monoxide poisoning.
Please leave the generator outside while running, if it is inside, you will be breathing in toxic fumes unknowingly.
