  2. Free Magazines and Newspapers.

    Many libraries tend to order daily, weekly, and monthly subscriptions on many newspapers and magazines. Wall Street Journal, Car and Driver, People, US, etc. After some time, these are recycled and thrown away. Find the bin it’s kept in and you just scored yourself a year’s worth of free reading material.

  3. Free Money.

    Find a bookstore or a book sale around your neighborhood. Then go to Sell textbooks and used books. Search the book’s ISBN number and if you find a buyer who’d pay more for the book than what it’s currently selling for, you just made money through risk free arbitrage.

  4.  Iron Your Food

    You read that right. You can make perfect grilled sandwiches by simply wrapping the sandwich in foil and a layer of cloth over it, and ironing away for a good 30-40 seconds. Not just that, your iron can double up as a makeshift electric stove … only, make sure your makeshift stand is sturdy to hold the iron from rolling over.

  6. Make Sound Amplifiers out of Plastic Bottles

    Plastic bottles are extremely versatile. They come in handy especially during those impromptu parties when you need a sound system, but don’t have one. All you’ll need is your phone, an empty plastic bottle and a cutter. Make a slit in the bottle that’s big enough to fit the width of your phone, slide in your phone, and there’s your sound system. Hear the difference?

    Fold your t-shirts vertically into half, and then horizontally. Stack all your tees vertically, instead of one on top of the other.

    The next time your battery is dying, place your phone in front of the air conditioner. As batteries get drained faster due to heat, keeping your phone cool will help conserve battery for a while.

  13. Professional Life

    • Applying for a position you are not really good at? 
      Add main keywords (related to the role and the industry) to your online resume in “white font”. Most HR departments of big companies have a basic screening algorithm that scans the document for such keywords.

Is this ethical? NO. Will it help you bypass the first line of defense? LIKELY.

 

  • No idea about how good/bad your competition is for a particular job?
    Post a fake ad for a similar role (on any site you choose). This way you will get a good number of resumes you can use to come up with a benchmark.
