Just Keep Moving Forward

steve-jobs-and-bill-gates-remember-when-we-were-po1Honestly, I don’t think I am ready for a job yet. Maybe it’s because I’m picky. I don’t want just any job for the sake of money. I want one that will give me experience and skills that relate to the career  I want later in life … and money. lol. But during this semester I am going to work on getting some experience that would make me stand out to an employer. Because so far .. I don’t.

So how am I going to do that? I have applied to some executive positions in a club or two at McGill. Not just for the sake of it, but because I actually like the kind of club it is. I’m not going to say which club or anything yet because if I don’t get the position, it’s pretty embarrassing.

But alas! I will continue on my mission to find volunteer and work experience no matter how many times I fail.

You always hear about those people who dropped out of school, were broke, followed an idea that no one believed in and BAM they become successful. Well not really BAM but you know, they win in the end.

So that’s the idea kids. If you just don’t think you’re ready for a job, just keep trying to get experience and eventually after aaaaaallllll your hard work, you WILL get that job you want.

 

Kind of unrelated but I thought I would share some useful tips I found this week for improving your essay writing. I’m not bad at writing essays. But I figured mastering essay writing from the start of my McGill degree would be a very useful skill I can carry forward with me throughout the rest of my studies.

Resources to help improve your essay writing:

– CEAP 250. Its basically just a 3-credit course that teaches you how to write essays, summaries etc. Its really useful, and for those of you in science, you can take it as a required english credit.

– Essay assistance/editing from tutors at the AUS Essay Center. Its free!

– There was something else but I forgot …. uhhhhhh … so I guess thats all for this post! Oh and I found out this weekend that delivering your groceries from the metro grocery store to your house is 1 CENT. I repeat 1 CENT. Basically free. I chose all my stuff at the grocery store and the lady at the front told me about this 1 cent deal (best deal of my life) and my groceries came within an hour …. sweeeeeeeeeet

Bye guys!
