A terrible way to pick your goals is to do what society wants you to do: to chase prestige. Don’t do things to win the respect of people you don’t know. Instead, do things that you and people whom you respect care about. Paul Graham puts it best: ‘Prestige is just fossilized inspiration. If you do anything well enough, you’ll make it prestigious.’

As I’ve just said weeks ago, Patrick finally decided to move to the company I’ve been working for. He did it because he admitted the he’s not happy anymore with his past job. His co-workers are good, even his boss, they pay him well actually but happiness is the most important thing in the world. If a person is doing something that doesn’t give him/her satisfaction then maybe there’s something wrong. And I can say that my boyfriend finally found his happiness.

At first, I doubt because I thought maybe it’s just because of me because we’re apart. Or maybe he’s just having a hard time coping with the sudden changes. But I trusted his decision. My manager liked his works and attitude, reason why he got in. And as I can see. He’s really happy now. :) I knew him when he is or not. He loves the work, the people, the surroundings, he loves everything. I knew it’s not just about me. And I am happy for him. ♥

Good thing about having your boyfriend at work is that you’re able to stock and share foods and coffee. Every payday, we manage to buy something to eat that’d fit for us in two weeks. Every morning we always read each other’s today’s advice that we bought in Papemelroti. We also make coffee together before doing our works. We’re not sitting beside each other but we are in a same group. ;) There are four groups in the Creative Department so we are surrounded with creative people and stuff. When we have OT, I’ll never have to worry if I’m going home late. I’m safer now hehe. We also bring lunch and we always share. That way, we can save more ;) On our monthsary, we can date right after our office work. There are also times when we’re given the same project which means we have to cooperate with each other, like partners. ♥

Last time, we are given a special project from the Boss which is video editing for the presentation of toy making. The videos are taken from the plant in China and we’re just so happy for accepting it. We’ve always like editing videos.

I hope that this happiness will last for a long long time! :) ♥

Some tips for those looking to get a job

Hi, so I know there are a lot of us out there who are looking for jobs. I decided to compile a list of things people may not take into account once the application process is finished.

-Always check up on your application in person. Do this once or twice a week if you have the means of doing so. Do not call in to check up on it unless they have made it clear that it is okay for you to do so.

-If you land an interview, show up 15 minutes early. This is a good way to show employers that you value punctuality as well as making a good impression, thus causing them to be more likely to remember you when they review your application.

-Do not over-dress unless the occasion calls for it (for instance, you wouldn’t wear slacks to a McDonalds interview. A nice shirt and pair of jeans will do just fine).

- Don’t wear too much perfume/cologne. It is important to appear clean and hygienic, but when you basically drench yourself in it, you’re not going to leave a good impression. Apply a minimal amount and go on with your day.

-Try to appear confident, but not cocky. Show your future employer that you are up for any task within reason (or let them know that there are some tasks you may not be able to do due to a disability, etc.). Don’t insult yourself in front of them (this includes things such as self-deprecating remarks and the like), because things like that are in bad taste.

-Get in some practice interviews. This will help you know what kind of questions to expect and may also ease your nerves about your main upcoming interview.

That’s all I can think of for now! Good luck with getting that job you want! I’m sure I’ve forgotten something, so feel free to add on to this post.

“I don’t know what to do with my life right now… Perhaps I will be a bartender until I figure it out!” I say, as I conveniently forget the fact that I often have no idea how to casually socialize and that I prefer to be alone the majority of the time.

Seriously, why did I think this was a good idea?

There ya go..

If you’re technically inclined, like me, this is an easy trap to fall into. You have to avoid it. The E-Myth by Michael Gerber is must read for any entrepreneur. In it he guides you through the distinction between technicians and entrepreneurs. He also provides a framework for establishing an enterprise. It’s a classic! Who loves this book? 📚

How To Write A Cover Letter When You Have No Experience

For students who have no fancy internships or summer jobs on their razor-thin résumés, here’s some advice:

1) The first paragraph should say who you are, where you go to school, what the job is that you’re applying for and how you came to apply. It helps a lot if you can include a name of someone with a personal connection.

2) The second paragraph has to connect the dots between you and the employer. Describe how your experiences meet the challenges presented in the job description.

3) In the third paragraph, further describe your personal traits and how they make you a great candidate for the job.

4) To wrap up, say when you’ll get in touch.

5) In most cases, send the letter as an attachment and format it like an old-fashioned business letter with your address at the top, then the date and then the address of the recipient.

6)  Proofread carefully and get someone you trust to check for spelling, grammar and word use.
