Finally! I got the call from Tin Tin, the HR Personnel from the company that I am currently applying for. She told me that I passed the final Interview which was held last Thursday and now, I am invited for the contract signing and they will also give the set of requirements that I have to submit. I'm pretty excited now and this is a new industry and a new environment for me that's why I am quite nervous at the same time.

Medical exam is actually the most crucial part of any application process because no matter how well you did in the Final interview, they might not hire you if you failed the medical exam.
Medical exam will tell how physically fit you are to work.
Well, I know myself is healthy but that doesn't mean I should be very confident with the medical result. I am acidic so it might affect my urine test. Good thing, I am not taking any medicine right now so I have nothing to worry about the drug test but if ever you guys are in doubt, you can try those cleansing products to detoxify your urine and give you higher chance to pass your drug test.

Status of Your Roof

Have you ever had an emergency roof repair? How was it? Did you fix it all by yourself? Were you able to resolve the issue and how long does it take before it gets resolved? Roof leaks is probably one of the most common problems that every households can have and that's exactly what we're facing today after the series of typhoons . Now, we have to call for an emergency repair because according to the news, another typhoon will arrive later this afternoon. I'm afraid that the upcoming typhoon will make our roof's condition even worst.
Checking the status of your roof is not a daily or a monthly routine but it doesn't mean that we should ignore such task. The roof is being exposed to heat, rain, and even snow so even how expensive the material you used, no matter how well they are being installed, whether you're using shingles, GI sheets or others, there comes a time that you have to replace or repair them.
Choosing the Right Materials - The quality of the materials is indeed a major contributing factors to make your roof more durable. Some materials can withstand strong weather conditions for a very long time.
Proper Roof Installation - Whether you are use the shingle type or the metal roofing, proper installation is the most important thing to consider. Improper workmanship may lead to a disastrous outcome which can be very costly in the near future. I suggest that you let the expert Roofers handle the job. They are professional and they can install the roof properly and satisfactorily.
Replacing the Old Roof- If you know that the roof that you are using is quite old, then you might want to consider replacing them. It is highly advisable to add more protection for your house and your family.
Hope you find these information useful. If you have any suggestions, feel free to share it here.
