Interviewer. Interviewee.

I was fortunate enough to be asked by one of my ICT colleagues to be part of a school activity. The aim of the activity was to give the students a feel of what it’s like to be interviewed for a job. During the activity, I realized that there were still a lot of things that the kids needed to learn.
Here are some points:
  • Dress well
    • It’s not enough to just put on a pair of slacks and a button-down polo shirt. Do not forget to iron your clothes. And for the love of chocolates, choose a color that is not irritating to the eyes.
  • Smile
    • It helps relax our jaws. If you don’t smile, you’d seem arrogant (or maybe you are?).
  • Research
    • Make sure that you know something about the company that you wish to be a part of. Do not answer “Because you’re hiring” when asked “Why choose our company”. It’s an application suicide.
  • Know yourself
    • Basic questions like “Why should we hire you”“What are your strengths”, and etc are not as basic as you think. Don’t stick to answers such as “Because I am hard-working”. Sweetheart, you can say anything you want but how can you convince the interviewer that you’re telling the truth? You convince them by telling a short story. Or let’s call it an “example”. Anyone can say that they are hard-working, that they have initiative, and etc but it won’t be enough.
  • It’s NOT an interview
    • It’s a conversation. Think of it that way. It will help you relax. And trust me, you need to relax. Make your interviewer laugh or smile. Let them relax as well. It’s not easy interviewing people. It’s exhausting. So it’s a breath of fresh air when we interview someone who is pleasant to talk with. Notice the word that I used? I used “with”. It’s a two-way conversation.
  • Email address
    • If you’ve been using for the past 4 years, continue doing so. But when you apply for a job, make a new one. Use your name. It’s not cute anymore when you’re already applying for a job. I would suggest this format: or you may use (if the <.> is allowed). If it’s already taken, then put numbers at the end. You can use your year of birth or your birthday. But don’t use 666 or 69. You get my drift (I hope).
***I still have tons to share but I think this will do for now. I will update this as soon as I can fix my thoughts.***
Happy job hunting!


***I don’t know about the luck part of it or the part about sending this to people but I just had to read it coz it was funny. 🙂 And I had a good laugh coz it kinda described me***

This is the real deal. Try ignoring it, and the first thing you’ll notice is having a horrible day starting tomorrow morning and it only gets worse from there.

Resolutions. Churvalutions. Ek la vu.

It really doesn’t feel any different. 2009. 2010. And now 2011. People talk about resolutions, things to do, things to NOT do, places to go, places to NOT go to AGAIN. You know, those kind of things.
But what about me? It’s already the 5th of January and I still have to think of those things. But wait! I never do. Year after year, I don’t think about those things. Maybe this year, I should. Or try to.
My head is spinning. I have an out-to-get-me kind of headache. I am not sure if this is the right time for me to think of resolutions and etc.
But before I forget, I should probably make a note of some. Like… Uhmmm… Darn… Still haven’t figured it out just yet. Oh yeah!
First! I will write more. Not just here but my journal as well. When I say journal, I am talking about the notebook type wherein when there’s too much in my head, my penmanship is barely readable.
Okay, my head is really giving me a hard time. So, I will park this for now. I am tempted not to publish it. But it also means that I MIGHT end up scrapping it. I will finish this tomorrow. I guess that’s something I have to do. Resolutions and etc. Eeeek!

I told myself that I was going to finish this. So finish this post I will. Or should I say “I shall”? Back to my list.
I will write more. That’s my first resolution. What to write about? I don’t know yet. I will just go with the flow (of my brain/heart).

My second, third, and fourth resolutions are as follows: know what I want, know when I want it, and then know how to get it. I’m not talking about material things. I’m talking about goals. What I want for my life. When (in particular) do I want certain “things” to happen. And finally to know how to get or achieve what I want for my life. Sounds simple enough. Sounds. But I know it would be really hard. First things first, I still need to decide on the “what” question. The “when” is probably the easiest to answer. But I can’t skip the question before that.

Hmmmm… Come to think of it, I don’t think those would count as resolutions. But it really doesn’t matter now. Does it?

And now I’m pretty much done with this topic about resolutions. I don’t even know why I ventured into this. Maybe I was just going with the “flow”. Which is kinda weird since I rarely do that. Well, there’s always a first time for everything.
