  What Are The Right Skills For Both Job Hunting And Career Promotions?Even though you are working or self-employed, we believe success is a life-longlearning-game. Google: New York Times on 7.02.2010:Jobs Go Begging in The Hunt For the Right-Skills.So What, Who Cares, I am OK What are the Right-Skills anyway? Keep it simple – Simon.Basic skills means your can read and do arithmetic at a 9 th grade level. Sure, it isharder than that TV show – Are You Smarter Than a 5 th Grader?, but the testfor basic skills is not looking for a reincarnation of Al Einstein.Recession or DepressionThe depression of the 1930s lasted over ten-years – from 1939 to the beginningof World War 2, December of 1941. The present honest rate of U.S. unemployment,June, 2010 is 16.5% not the newspaper number of 9.5%.How come? In addition to the 14.6 million without work are another 11.02 millionwho Washington admits have given up the fight to find a job. These figures areequal to the low end of the Great Depression unemployment.Wait. How many of U.S. citizens are Employed? Answer: about 154.2 million.Nothing to sneeze at, huh? Unemployed among teenagers is presently 25.7% and forBlack-Americans, 15.4%. Really, these numbers fit the Great Depression – in 2010.Last numbers you should know. How many citizens in the U.S.? Almost 310 millionHow many in the world? 6.9 billion. Learn these two population figures – U.S. - 310million, World, 6.9 billion. Lifelong learning means knowing this.TrainingWait. Human Resources departments say they are seeking Aptitude, not justspecific skills. Aptitude is a talent, cleverness, and the smarts to learn new skills.They want new hires to have the right attitude, mind-set, and IQ to pick upnew knowledge and the right working behaviors to succeed.President Obama wants new Stimulus money to train for these new jobs, butCongress has rejected training appropriations. Now what? How do we grab up thedemand for new hires – “going begging”? They pay $18-23 per hour – up to $800weekly.The Power of Reading as an Employment Asset 1  Human Resources departments take reading for business purposes very seriously.They pay thousands of dollars to train their employees from factory level toexecutives to improve their reading and comprehension levels.Are you aware of how slowly you presently read? The average adult reads about 200words per minute and wastes hours daily because they struggle with thefundamentals of decoding, storage and retrieval of information.Silent or AloudWhen we were kids in school the teacher read aloud to us. Later we were taught toread silently without moving our lips or making auditory verbalization.Today 98% of adults read one-word-at-a-time, and hears each word pronounced intheir mind. So What? It slows us down to a crawl – we call it snailing.AloudEven though reading should be silent there are times to alternate by reading someparagraphs aloud in a whisper. The only listener is you. Why read aloud?Reading is a visual process starting in the rear of the eye, the retina. Light isdetected and the eyes create electro-chemical impulse in the neurons. It is thephotoreceptors – the rods (120 million) vs. the cones (17 million) that transmitthe impulses to our Optic Nerve on the way to our brain.It is then sent to the Primary Visual Cortex (V-1) in our brain for comprehensionand memory. A duplicate of what we read in V-1 also registers in our Larynx. It isas if we are mentally verbalizing each word we read.MemoryThinking, using our PreFrontal Cortex, plus repeating aloud what we are readingcreates Neuro-Muscular Memory. Using both areas causes engrams – memorytraces that improve retrieval of information. Google: Broca’s and Wernicke’sAreas.When we add our Vocal Chords by reading aloud, to our left-brain neurons of comprehension, our neurotransmitters enhance our long-term memory of whatwe read.V-A-K Powerful reading occurs when we use our three (3) dominant senses – Vision byseeing the words, Auditory by hearing the words we read in our mind’s ear 2  (auditory reinforcement), and last Kinesthetic (touch) when we use a pen in ourhand to Pace and Underline the words we read. We use our Ear plus our VocalChords to read and remember better. No Pacer and you stop at each word.When we read (whisper) aloud, the sound passes from our larynx (voice box) andbone to our brain. The sound to the brain exclusively from our ears is NOT as goodas utilizing both structures. The additional memory neuro-pathway (ear and vocalchords) helps double your long-term memory.Reading SkillRead silently for 15 minutes and stop. Now summarize the gist of what you haveread in a loud whisper. The combination of silent and aloud reading improvesyour attention and recall of what you have read. In 21 consecutive days of practiceyour reading speed will double and memory improve permanently up to 50%.Fusiform GyrusThe structure in your brain that registers and stores the shape of NEW words inyour vocabulary is located in the fusiform gyrus of your brain. The same areacontains the faces and body shapes of all those we recognize. Understandingmetaphors also occurs in the Fusiform Gyrus.EndwordsSpeed reading begins with using a Pacer to force your eyes speed up. A pen or alaser pointer is the tool to double or triple your reading skills for your career.You do not learn that in school, but it will improve your career.You can go from about 200 wpm to up to 800 words per minute through 15-minutedaily practice for 21 days. Learn Pacing and reading aloud and you will be preparedfor a new hire or a promotion in your present career.---Would you have a major competitive advantage over your competitors by readingand remembering three (3) books, articles and reports, when your peers can hardlyfinish one?Contact us for a free; no strings attached major report on speed reading.
