Career counseling #4: Lisa

It`s 2015 and we`ve got a fresh start ahead.

For a first-in-the-year post, let`s take Lisa, Greg`s long lost love. I`m sure you all remember Greg.

Lisa majored in political science, with an emphasis on international relations. She hoped to get a job within the Parliament, a Ministry or something similar. She`s been unemployed since June 2013, when she graduated. In the past year and a half, she had some meaningless jobs, learned another language and thought about the future. She recently started a Masters` in political sciences abroad, with an emphasis on European affairs.

Lisa`s attitude, from my point of view, is one of denial. She thinks that, after her Master, she`ll get a job within a European institution and start of a fabulous career in politics. And here`s the punchline!

Career counseling #3: the University

The year has almost come to an end. 2015 is just a couple of days away and everybody is preparing their New Year`s resolutions (myself included).

I find it only fitting to write a post about how those college years should help you get the job of your dream after you graduate.

Everybody told me, after I graduated, that I should have done an internship, volunteered anywhere, with any organization just to get a head start. People also told me that I should have worked in college, if not for my financial independence, at least for a better looking resume. The advice is in the rest of the article

My New Year`s Resolutions

I never wrote my New Year`s resolution down. I always wished, in my head, to do something in the new year that I didn`t do or achieve in the one that passes.

But now, because I really want to do them, I will write them down and update them on this blog as I complete each.

1. Have a baby

2. Learn a new language at least at conversational level.happy-new-year-2015-wallpapers (16)

3. Find a new job.

4. Don`t redesign this blog in the new year.

5. Write twice a week on this blog, at least in the first six months.

6. Write the second part of my short story and get it published (on Smashwords). The first part is called A dreamer`s guide to reality.

7. Start working out (I really need the exercise, but, so far, I was too lazy).

These are my New Year`s resolutions. I`ll update when completed just to make sure that I follow-up.
