There are some do's and don'ts of excelling in an interview. When I lived in Tennessee, I conducted interviews on a weekly basis for the company I worked for. I have certain, simple things I look for and if I don't find, I will tune out the rest of the interview. The biggest, and most important that sets the tone of the whole interview is the handshake...
Handshake: If you don't shake my hand correctly, we're done. This goes for men and women. Just because I am a woman, doesn't mean guys should curtsy instead of shake my hand properly. I promise, my hand won't break into a billion pieces when you shake it.
Don't do any of the following:
Use the tips of your fingers to squeeze the tips of my fingers
Don't offer me a "pound-it!"
Don't shake with the LEFT hand
Don't just place your hand in mine and just let it sit there
Don't offer your hand to me like you're the queen
I assure you I am not the only one who thinks this way. Give a proper, full handshake with a hearty squeeze. If you don't, you WILL NOT get the job, I can guarantee that.
Shortest rant I've ever had on this old blog, huh? Well I wanted to keep this thing short and sweet today so you can meet the gorgeous, Setarra! I usually
beg suggest that my sleepover pals make a drinking game for their feature post! And boy do we ever have a drinking game on our hands today. I can't believe this was made by a Redskins fan (jk lollllzzz lylas)!! Seeing as I'll be traveling for work on Halloween, I'll for sure be playing this in my hotel room. Take it away, girlfriend!
Hello Everyone! Setarra here from Quaintrelle. Life has been pretty darn interesting since I recently moved down to Northern Virginia from NYC. I moved in with my boyfriend after loving via long distance, we got engaged annnnd after 3 months of unemployment since moving to VA, I finally got a job! This Friday marks my first paycheck in what feels like forever so you know I’ll celebrating over many dranks this weekend :)
When Sarah suggested coming up with a drinking game for VTIM, I immediately thought about Halloween … And while I have no plans whatsoever to wear a costume this year (I tend to get dressed up every other year), you better believe I will be stalking following everyone else’s shenanigans for Halloween via my favorite form of social media, Instagram! With that said, pull out your drink of preference and get ready to play “The Hallow-Insta-Drinking Game.” (say that 3 times fast)
A Jack-O-Lantern They Made
Some Kind of Pumpkin Infused Beer
Their Halloween Decorated Fingernails
When someone posts a picture of themselves in a costume that barely covers their assets and you think“Thank goodness I’m not walking around in the cold in THAT.”
When you see the cutest baby dressed up in the cutest costume and involuntarily feel your ovaries get excited…
Someone posts a REALLY scary picture of a Clown and you scroll through to get away as quickly as possible before that image ingrains itself in your mind and gives you nightmares.
Someone posts a picture of what they wore last year (or the year/s before) kudos to Halloween happening on a Thursday this year … #tbt
When someone posts their Halloween pictures on Instagam NEXT WEEK courtesy of another lovely hashtag … #latergram
When You ‘Like’ A Picture Of Someone’s Costume Even If You Kind Of Really Don’t Like It.
Thank goodness Instagram doesn’t have an ‘unlike’ button...
And that’s that my friends! Don’t forget to swing by my blog, Quaintrelle, and have a Happy Hallow Holiday!
