Post #24: I’m Getting Married đź’Ť

May 21, 2022 was an amazing day! My boyfriend of 1.5 years proposed to me on the 12th floor of the most beautiful hotel. He planned everything and made it truly unforgettable.

I was single and trying to date when I started this blog. I lived alone in my apartment and was unsure of my future. I still cannot believe how things have changed.

Excited to start planning! Excited to enter this new season!

Post #22: Going Through The Job Search And Interview Process

The job search and interview process can be difficult. It’s important to know exactly what you are looking for and how to secure that role. Some tips I have for the process are below.

Job Search and Interview Tips

1. Write down a list of what you are looking for in a new job and your dealbreakers

2. Revise your resume and cover letter/customize for each job

3. Use a professional email

4. Set a limit for the number of jobs you will apply to per week

5. Apply to different tiers of jobs (easy, moderate and hard)

6. Send thank you notes after each phase of the interview process

7. Decline same day interviews

8. Test out your connection before the interview

9. Study the company and job posting

10. Write down a list of possible questions/answers

11. Write down follow up questions for the interview

12. Negotiate your salary

It is important to ask questions at the end of each interview. Some questions I suggest are below.

Interview Questions

1. What is the workplace culture in the company/department?

2. Can you describe what a typical day looks like in the position?

3. What would you expect me to accomplish within the first 90 days of the position?

4. What are the most important qualities a person would need to possess in order to be successful in the position?

5. How is the performance evaluated?

6. What is the potential for growth in this role?

7. Are there any existing team building methods for the team?
