Hotel in Dublin

What Are Your Working Holiday Job Prospects?

You are old and grey, sitting on a leather couch by the fireplace, sipping on a steaming cup of Barry’s tea, when a little child crawls around the corner of the armrest.

 

“Grandma, can you tell me a story?”

 

You pick him up and sit him down on your lap while sifting through your memories, fragments triggered with every wisp and crackle of the flames. There was that time you and your friends went on a West Coast road trip. There were those annual family ski trips in Colorado (oh, how you tumbled down the slopes!). Then, you look down at your cup of Barry’s and smile.

 

“Well, once, a long time ago, way before you were born, I worked as a barista in Dublin.”

 

“Wow!” he exclaims. “What’s a Dublin?”

“In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take.”

A few years ago, I was asked the question “where do you see yourself in five years?” Well, I actually was asked ten years at first but I said that was too far away.

CVs and Recipes: 6 Things They Have in Common

A good CV works the same way a good recipe works. How?

 

1) Layout and Formatting

Why do recipes always follow the same format of introduction, list of ingredients, followed by a step-by-step preparation guide? Because it’s easy to follow! If your recipe for chicken and broccoli stir fry is a blob of a paragraph, no one is going to read it.

When writing your CV, the same applies. Choose a clean, classic font. Implement a header for your personal details. Title each of your sections. Bold, italicize, and indent when necessary to establish different types of data.
