LOL. OK the thought came across me yesterday just how similar interview for a job and going on a first date are. Since I am going through both at the same time...
So I will be sitting there, talking about all my strengths and how I work on my weaknesses. Then I have to stop myself. Wait...am I on a job interview or a date? lol
Its so funny how we have to sell ourselves these days. We have to try our hardest to prove to another party just how great we are. Whether we are looking for employment or looking for love. I would not be surprised if a date would ask for a resume.
So in an effort to impress a potential boss or boyfriend I have compiled yet another list of my strengths and why I would be the girl for you.
*I am very much a people person. Although I can work on my own, I prefer to be in the company of others to make my work day a little more bearable.
*One of my weaknesses is I am terrible at remembering dates and times. But I do have a system in place of writing down times and dates on a calendar that I keep at my desk and then following through with putting it in my blackberry with a set reminder.
*I am really laid back, so I don't get frazzled in moments of chaos. I simply set goals in order of importance and follow through.
*I rule with a velvet gloved iron fist. I believe that you can manage a team of people successfully while maintaining a positive attitude.
*I love to hang out with friends, family, catch a sporting event, drink a beer. (ya this one is aimed more to a potential mate than employer)
Okay my minds gone. That's all I got today.
