Hello. I hope you’ve had a wonderful week. This past week has been filled with job applications, exercise, and WWE. In other words, a great week. I went swimming with my sister and realized how much I miss swimming even if it was extremely tiring and I felt like a wet noodle stuck to the pot when I tried to climb out of the pool after.
I also got some great advice from a recruiter this past week. She told me I should be more specific about what I’m looking for on my portfolio and resume and suggested I make my portfolio a bit more tailored to the position I want more, mobile developer or project manager. She also told me that the job I was describing when she asked me my long-term career goals is a position with the title product owner and that there are technical product owners with development backgrounds. It was a really helpful, insightful conversation that I will remember going forwards in my career and I am extremely grateful to her for taking that time to speak with me.
Last point of interest over this past week, Elimination Chamber. If you haven’t seen it, go watch it. If you have, tell me what you thought! My chamber match picks were Cesaro and Randy Orton. I was a little disappointed that Alexa Bliss didn’t make an appearance, but overall, it was a great pay-per-view.
Some of the things I’ve learned over the past week are:
- LinkedIn is a very useful tool that becomes exponentially more useful as you proactively connect with more and more amazing people, many of whom spend quite a bit of their LinkedIn time trying to help others
- Monster has a great bunch of sample cover letters for all kinds of positions
- Factoring in filling up gas time is important when planning bathroom stops on a road trip
- Ensuring your weekends are spent relaxing without much, if any, work is very important in ensuring that your weeks are productive when you are working (for me at least)
Thank you for taking the time to read this. I hope you have a wonderful week! Don’t forget to let me know your thoughts on the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view.
