8th Waray Music Festival

It's the 8th year of music festival that happens annually at Tacloban City featuring Waray-Waray music talents all over Eastern Visayas. I was at last year's 7th year Waray Music Festival celebration at RTR Plaza in Tacloban City and was overwhelmed at the talents from Tacloban City. The event was jam packed, lots of bands played and it was one hell of an evening of rock music! I'm sure this year will be much better because of the lineup of bands who will be playing.

Top 3 In Demand Jobs Today

Since I have resigned from my previous job as a computer technician, this will be time again to look for another job from other companies. What's even more challenging is I am making a career shift, which is really difficult to land a job wherein you have little to no experience at all.

These are three jobs that are in demand right now, all of them is computer/IT related jobs.

1. Web Developer. Most job openings require to have 2-3 years of experience in mostly web programming like PHP, Ruby on Rails, AJAX, Jquery, Javascript.

2. Web/Graphic Designer. More and more clients are putting their business online, yet the demand for web designers is really high. At least you have to have at least 2-3 years of solid work experience from Photoshop, CSS, & HTML.

3. SEO Specialist. More websites being produced means also more work for the SEO specialist. Generally the job of the SEO specialist is to make a web/business site rank well in search engines so that it's easy for potential customers to look for them. Pre-requisites such as at least have had an experience in work as an SEO.

If you are recently a IT graduate and finding your first job, take time first to furnish your skills so you'll be to have at least an advantage of what will the work you we gearing at.
