After reading a post by Sarah from Sarah in the Six about the Italian school system, I thought it would be a great idea to finally demystify the Quebec school system for you! Studying in Quebec is completely different from studying in the rest of Canada. It’s the only school system like that in the entire world (or, at least, that I know of).
I’ve mentioned CEGEP a couple of times on my blog and it always seems to surprise some college bloggers when I tell them that I’m a sophomore at university and that I’m 21 years old. But trust me, it makes total sense. So whether you want to study abroad in Quebec or if you’re just curious about how the school system works here, this post is for you! View Post
As some of you may know, my birthday is coming up soon (November 9th y’all!). At first, I didn’t think I would be marking the occasion, especially not here on the blog, because I didn’t think it was relevant, but then I realized that I was about to hit a pretty important number. Turning 21 is no big deal here in Quebec, but I’m finally going to be legal in the United States as well! Then, I realized that I had to do something to celebrate it here. I’ve seen a lot of these “__ things I’ve learned in __ years” all over the Internet, so I thought I would give this thing a try.
As you might know, I’ve been looking for an internship recently. Of course, that means that I had to go through a lot of interviews (16 y’all!!!). Writing a killer resumé will help you get noticed, but the interview is where you make it or break it. That’s when you take the matter into your own hands and try to convince the employer that they should hire you. After going through so many interviews in such a short period of time, I’ve developed these 10 interview tips that will help you ace just about any interview!
If you follow me on Twitter or Snapchat, you know that I’ve had quite a few interviews this past week. Why? Because I’m currently looking for an internship for the winter and summer semesters!
Because of the internship search process I’ve been on with my career center, it happens that all of the interviews for the internships that I have applied for in the past few weeks happened last week, or will be happening in the upcoming week. That means that I’ve spent
all most of my fall break doing interviews and that I will be (hopefully) doing more interviews this week. Yes, at the same time I’m taking my midterms. Talk about stress!
One of the things that helped me get through this stressful week is to prepare. How do you prepare for an interview? Check out these 4 ways to help you prepare for any interview and don’t forget to grab your bonus worksheet at the end! View Post
It’s a well-known fact that I’m a TV junkie. During high season (aka fall and winter), I can watch up to 12 TV shows a week! So trust me when I say I know my stuff. Who do you think my friends and family turn to when they need a show to binge? ME.
I wrote a Netflix recommendation post before, as well as a few TV-related blog posts, and since it’s been a while since I’ve last written one, I thought now would be the perfect time to write another edition! With fall on its way, you’re more than likely to want to snuggle up and watch something on Netflix. So I gathered up my favorite movies and TV shows of the moment so you have plenty to choose from!
