Visually Pleasing

Anyone who has searched in the job market knows that the task of applying to jobs can be a bit monotonous (but very necessary, of course). Constantly reiterating basic information, strategically selling your best and brightest qualities depending on the job description and highlighting your past experience becomes, well, a bit of a bore. Lets be honest, how many people do you know that are truly thrilled when going through the process of looking for a new job? Probably none.

Unfortunately, I do not have a solution to this problem; however, there is an alternative way to present this information that may give your monotonous process a bit of flare. Vizify and Vizualize.me are two websites that group your information and present it in a graphical bio format. Other than posting these links on Linkedin, at the moment, I am not sure how else to present this to employers. But it does make your accomplishments look very….well, dazzling. Check out some examples of the two layouts below.

Testing Our Comprehension

Studying abroad in Spain this September at ICADE has been deemed an upcoming challenge for me and my classmates. Nine courses in the Spanish language five days a week is not going to be an easy task for any of us. But there might be a slight curve ball; eight of the nine courses are business courses while the ninth is said to be a language course.

We filled out our language request forms yesterday claiming which third language we would like to learn in Spanish. Yes, we are learning another language in Spanish. Our choices include the following: French, Italian, German, and Chinese. I am leaning towards Italian, but any recommendations are welcomed. This might be the stepping stones to being trilingual in the future. We will have to see how well this fall turns out.
