Getting A Job

Blogs and Blogging...



Guy Kawasaki has a great article on his blog today about getting a job. To be specific, it's about getting a job in Silicon Valley, but many of the principles are valid for any job interview. It's well worth a read, and there are quality suggestions and observations in the comments section as well.

Thanks for sharing this, Genevieve - a fun & interesting read...I'm presently at the "job seeking" point in my life again, after being a full-time Mom, volunteer publicity person, assistant to my Dad for his camera business for many years, but am now ready to join the workforce again... I know things have definitely changed since I last had a job with a real salary (16 years!) so it's nice to get a glimpse of how things might go at a "modern day" interview...also, I want to tell you I thoroughly enjoy reading your blog...it's always refreshing and interesting to visit =)

Peggi, how well I know what job-seeking is. I hope you find something you really like.

Trouble is, I still don't know what I want to be after I grow up! I am fond of eating and living indoors though, so soon I'll be taking just about anything I can find.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
