To be Employed = To be Used?

6 minutes of an excellent animated short film. This is enough to ask us what we look for when seeking a job, how we regard other human beings, and how we want to live, in a powerful way.

There are no answers in this short film, only questions, but very often, questions are more than enough to kick start change. Undoubtedly, the change we are proposing to you is to go and live from your passions; to join the professional well-being revolution right now! >>

We invite you to watch it and leave us your comments:

10 things you should know about an internship

1)   Depending on when and where you do your internship, it can help you choose the subjects you need/want to study further along the line.

There are those people who are very lucky and know from a young age exactly what it is they want to do when they grow up, and so knowing what work experience to follow and what subjects to study is always an easier process. Alternatively, if you don’t know what you want to do later on in life, an internship could be an ideal way to help you decide what to study at school or at university. If you do an internship at an accountancy firm and love it, you know you’re going to have to study maths related subjects. In this day and age, we are lucky in the way that it’s not always necessary to study specific subjects to pursue a certain degree. Law conversion courses are an excellent example of this. So my suggestion is, even after one or many internship(s) you are still unsure, to study subjects you enjoy doing and to take a wide variety of subjects from different departments: arts, sciences, languages, social sciences etc.

Does Social Media Really Matter?

When applying for jobs, it is vital that you keep an eye on your social media presence, yes… it does matter! Everything you post whether it’s on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn, will most likely be seen by possible employers. Before they hire you, they want to be 100% sure that you are the person you seem to be. If your social media pages show them otherwise, you will get terminated from the job opportunity. Inappropriate images and foul-mouthed status updates should not be present.

Better Email Writing

As I said before, there are so-called ‘coaches‘ for almost everything. But I still didn’t find anyone offering him/herself as an ’email writing coach’. So, let me share with you some obvious but useful tips to write an email, a tool that is as daily as dangerous.

I found it well described in this post of Bruce Mayhew (who is in fact promoting his training on email writing, but then it’s up to you to decide whether you need that), so I wouldn’t reinvent the wheel but just summarize it:
