Interviewing into the Real World: Drew

Quote of the day: “Self-care is not an expense, it’s an investment.” I’m back with another interview! Today I am interviewing a very special person, Drew. Drew is very into health and fitness and has some great stories and tips to share! Let’s dive right into it. 1. Introduce Yourself (school, major, job, etc.) Hi! My name is Drew, and I’m a senior attending University of Oregon. I’m studying Human Physiology with a minor in Chemistry. If all goes according to plan I’ll have my degree in a few months… I didn’t work throughout college (except during the summer), but over this past winter term I…

My Work Morning Routine

Quote of the day: “Mindset, habits, and routines are the building blocks for success toward your wellness goals.” I love having a routine. I think it’s so important to have a healthy morning routine, something that works for you and something that makes your day start off really well! I personally really like mornings and prefer to get my sh** done earlier in the day vs. the evening if possible. When I was in college, some mornings I would wake up at 5:30 am and crank out homework or I would go to the gym at 6:00 am. When I started working, I had to create…

Interviewing into the Real World: Marcus

Quote of the Day: “Stick with people who pull the magic out of you and not the madness.” Today will probably be a very interesting interview because it’s with a very interesting human-being! Meet Marcus, my ex-roommate! Marcus and I met freshmen year of college through Ultimate Frisbee and have grown closer and closer since. We started living together junior year of college and it was a BLAST! Now lets find out all about Marcus. 1. Introduce Yourself (school, major, job, etc.) I am Marcus but most people just call me by ‘creeper’ and ‘Hey hobo’. I have a bachelor degree in physics from the University…

My First Week of Work

Quote of the Day: “Work hard in silence. Let success be your noise.” I didn’t post all week last week because I started my new job and just didn’t really have a lot of time! I am officially a working gal. I am working full-time at an accounting firm as a tax processor (don’t ask me what that means because I’m low-key still unsure what I’m actually doing). Today, I thought I would share what my first week of working full-time looked like. My First Week:  First off, the place I work at is in the most PERFECT location. It is on a lagoon and is…

Tips for Acing The Interview

Quote of the Day: “Money alone doesn’t motivate me. Having a purpose does.” Finding a job is hard. Interviewing for a job is even harder…in my opinion. If you’re a naturally extroverted human-being, then I’m sure you have no problem with interviews, but if you’re anything like me, then you know how nerve-racking it is every single time you have an interview. To me, an interview feels like an oral presentation, but with just one person. I swear, before each interview, I feel sick to my stomach. I get so nervous and literally cannot focus on anything else. With that being said, I have been interviewing…
