So you’ve sent in your job application, printed off your resume, and now the employer would like for you to come in for an interview. Uh oh, how prepared are you? Don’t worry, I’ll walk you through it.
As I’ve mentioned before, dress for the job you want, not the job you’re getting. You never get a second chance to make a first impression and you want to start this off right.
You’ll want to stick to conservative and neutral colors like browns and blacks. If you want to throw a little color in there, think about green, which is the color of money and can send a subconscious message that you’ll be able to bring real dollar value to the company. Stay away from bright primary colors like red and yellow because you want your interviewer focused on your words, not your outfit.-mashable.com
Cover letters and resumes often go hand in hand when applying for a job so this post is dedicated to how they should be done.
- Cover letters should be concise (less than a full-page) and tailored to the particular company you are applying for. If the same cover letter can be used for various companies, it’s not specific enough.
- The cover letter should not summarize your resume-that’s what your resume is for. Instead, the cover letter should only briefly touch on highlights of the resume and leave the details to the resume itself.
After hopelessly searching the internet for how to create a ‘down for maintenance’ page and getting nowhere, I decided to find a way myself.
It’s hard for me to understand HTMLs and plugins (if I can understand them at all) so I wasn’t getting much help, not to forget that I’m not even permitted to use plugins because I use wordpress.com instead of wordpress.org, and yes, there is a difference. It dawned on me that I can just fake a maintenance page by creating the message on the blog myself.
In Government, my teacher was discussing how many Americans are uninformed when it comes to politics so he had us write a paper summarizing the stances of three different parties. We were to write about four issues from the party platforms of both Democrats and Republicans, as well as a summary of a third party of our choice.

Are you planning something and don’t know anyone who can create snazzy posters? Are you getting married soon and want unique invitations? Maybe you’re just hosting the coolest party ever and you need the coolest flyers. Whatever the case may be, satisfaction is guaranteed with Graphfx Designs. The owner of that small business is the very first person I go to when I need a design for something. He even created my blog’s logo.
Decoby Askew, the owner of Graphfx Designs, is absolutely amazing at creating something great out of nothing. The possibilities are endless as his ‘creative juices’ are always flowing. He loves to design, and for a good reason.
Here are a few of his designs:
I love to write poetry and my poems are generally about love. Because my poems are oh so loving, people often ask me who they are about or if I really feel that way. To be completely honest, I write just for the sake of writing. Sometimes they’re based on things that I have seen; couples who obviously love one another. Sometimes they’re based on how I imagine falling in love would be. I’m a bit of a dreamer so I find it pretty easy to fantasize, I guess you could say day dream, about what it would be like. How it should be at least. However, it’s not always lollypops and gumdrops. Heartache does exist so I write about that as well. It’s not always that I have experienced it, just that I was thinking about it when I had a pen in my hand.
O MY Luve ‘s like a red, red rose
That ‘s newly sprung in June:
O my Luve ‘s like the melodie
That’s sweetly play’d in tune!
As fair art thou, my bonnie lass, 5
So deep in luve am I:
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a’ the seas gang dry:
Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi’ the sun; 10
I will luve thee still, my dear,
While the sands o’ life shall run.
And fare thee weel, my only Luve,
And fare thee weel a while!
And I will come again, my Luve, 15
Tho’ it were ten thousand mile.
