ironic that i have to search for this to put on my cv
i DO have an idea for this phd proposal but the deadline’s oct. 28 and i have a) countless job duties and 2) no access to any academic source whatsoever and even if i did i find it hard to be able to research a topic i know jack shit about in like. three days. why was the deadline set two weeks ago this is academic cruelty
detainment in the wake of victory left a bitter taste in steve’s mouth. even the enormity of deep-rooted relief he felt in having nat at his side was tempered by the apprehension of what had happened in their absence to cause this welcome. it was like nobody believed a word they said, about anything. the cell they’d been tossed in was nothing more than metallic shoe box with a single cot.
they’d been interrogated about their personal and professional history, down to the most minute detail, and still cold eyes read skeptical... and fearful.
❝ how are you feeling? ❞ steve turns his attention back to nat. ( the stone had returned a piece of his heart to him, but couldn’t fully reverse the toll it had taken on her ) when their eyes meet they both soften. a silent exchange of their shared, central-concern. ❝ i’m worried about him too. we’ll make a move as soon as you’re a little more steady on your feet. ❞ he hoped whoever was listening in took it as a promise. they needed to get out and find bucky, something was wrong. // @spydered & @wyntered ( plotted starter )
gotta workshop my (admittedly weak) cv, send one more request to a recommender (whose number i just need to track down; she's already said she'd do it if i needed one but i want to formally ask before just like. putting someone's name down.) and then work up the courage to hit submit on the grad school application
A little advice from a girl who changed her career
Switching careers can be challenging. I was in the same boat a couple of months back and I can tell you - it's terrifying. You have no clue which jobs match your skills, what is the interviewer going to ask, how long is the process going to last. Are you an imposter? Thousands of thoughts rushing through your mind and most of them are not very positive :(
Meanwhile, you are sick of your current job and desperately want to get out of your industry. You see no scope of learning, you're frustrated and can't seem to continue for another day. You're demotivated the whole time, bored, angry and confused about why you're feeling this way. Been there done that.
Somehow, you realize may be you're on the wrong career path. May be you've stopped growing. May be it's your saturation point. And the only way you're going to feel motivated again is when you try something new! Now you feel relieved. You are ready for the big change.
Then comes the big question - How the hell am I supposed to get out of my industry where I've spent all my life and do something different?
Well, the answer is simple. You CAN if you learn this one thing - Identify your skill set. What skills have you acquired in your experience. There are skills which are very specific to a certain kind of job and there are some which can be retrofitted for different job requirements. The former is going to land you a job which is related to your current field but the latter can make you flexible for different types of job roles. So, what exactly are these skills? Let's dive right in.
1. Writing: There are tons of jobs you can get if you're good at writing. Corporate communications, copywriting, social media marketing, marketing communications & more. All you need is a decent vocabulary and a bit of storytelling.
2. Speaking: Client servicing, sales, business development, journalism. If you can talk people into buying your product or service, you've got yourself a high paying job.
3. Project management
4. Marketing: Of course, I'm not talking about straightaway becoming the head of marketing or the VP. But social media, digital is the future. So, it's good idea to learn and do courses in this discipline.
5. Strategy: This is the best one. If you know how to build a strategy and framework around a product or service, you are never going to be jobless. Strategy is a skill which comes with experience. It's a highly satisfying job as it's literally the foundation of everything.
If you're even slightly good at any of these, tweak your resume in a way which highlights these skills, use them to your advantage. You can improvise and brush up later. See how best can you sell yourself and convince your interviewer how good a fit you would be if you were hired.
I did that and changed my career by just tweaking my resume and selling myself based on these skills.
Final notes - be passionate and flexible. Managers love people who are humble, adaptable and hungry to learn. Employers specifically dislike those who think they know it all, exude arrogance and seem rigid. Who are not good team players.
I hope somebody would benefit from this. I wish you all the best!
the fact that cops can kill people who are slightly rude and be all ‘lol sucks to suck’ about it but retail employees with 400% more training cant lmao
