We’ve talked in the past about how important a resumé is for college students, and how to write a killer one, even if you think you have no experience (reminder: you DO have experience!!). Resumes are your first contact with your future employer and can determine whether or not you get an interview. It’s important to make sure you convey a strong first impression on paper, so the employer wants to see more and get to know you. But what do you put on your resume, especially when you’re a college student with next to no experience? These 9 resume boosters will help you make a strong first impression and get the interview!
I’ll admit it, ever since I’ve started this internship, I’ve been pretty bad at keeping my goals for the new year. I’ve been so focused on surviving now that I’m living on my own and kick ass at this internship that I’ve lost sight of my goals (and most of my goals were blog-centered, as I thought 2017 would finally be “the year of the blog”).
After my traffic has skyrocketed in December and January, I thought that it would easy-peasy to reach all of the goals I had set at the beginning of the year.
BOY WAS I WRONG.
February rapidly brought me back to reality. My stats have dropped, and I’ve let the blog (among other things) to the side. I feel like my internship is stealing all of my energy, motivation, and creativity. And I’m not proud of that.
Am I the only one who ever felt like life was getting in the way of my goals?
But today, this stops. I’m regaining control of my life, and I’m more motivated than ever to reach my goals! So I’m teaching you to do the same, in the hope that you’ll be able to reach your goals, too!
Can you believe that it’s been almost two years since I’ve started this blog?! I sure as hell can’t. It’s the first time that I carry out a project like that without quitting after a few months (
weeks, AHEM). Sure, I’ve had my ups and downs. I’ve taken countless breaks, I’ve thought about quitting more than I care to admit, I’ve wanted to change everything and start all over… but I’ve also moved to self-hosted, 60x my pageviews, and met incredible people through this little hobby of mine.
To celebrate my upcoming blog’s second anniversary, I thought I would share with you 6 lessons I’ve learned in the past two years as a blogger. View Post
When one of my favorite college bloggers Samantha from As Life Grows asked me if she could write a guest post for the blog, I was really excited. Not only is Samantha’s content always on point, but she’s also an inspiration of mine! With midterms coming up, you probably have a lot of exams coming your way. Samantha is here to make sure you’re ready! Want to guest post too? Make sure to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org! So without further adieu, enjoy the post!
One thing that every student has to do in college is memorizing. Lucky for some, this comes really easy to them. For others, however, memorization is tough. They struggle to learn new material and actually keep it in their heads. They spend hours studying their notes and still don’t see the results that they hoped for. If this sounds like something you struggle with, then I encourage you to dive right into learning from this post! In this post, I am going to be sharing with you five ways that you can improve your memorization skills before your next test. View Post
I can’t believe that over a month ago, I moved out of my parents’ house for good and moved into my own place. Sure, I go back home a lot (almost every weekend), but as my sister so kindly put it, I’m now considered a guest whenever I visit. I have now my own place to call home.
I have to admit that living on my own is not exactly the way I thought it would be. No matter how many posts you read on the subject or how many people you ask for advice, everyone’s experience is a little bit different. I love the liberty and independence living by myself has given me, but I’m also now just realizing how much I appreciate everything my parents have done and are still doing for me. Everyone has been trying to tell me to expect this and that, but there are a few things no one told me that I would have liked to know before I went out and moved to my own place. View Post
