Not Everybody Likes Their Routine

When most people think of a routine, they imagine the typical girl from a positive lifestyle article in a woman’s magazine. She’s slim and healthy, laughing at a joke that nobody will ever know while eating a green salad. Or maybe she’s showing off her widest grin on her way to the gym – back from the gym; it’s hard to tell, girls in magazines don’t seem to sweat when they exercise.

5 Mistakes Job Seekers Make On Their Resume

I’m not certain if it’s the fact that I took classes in Human Resources, chat with a number of job seekers, have searched for a job at different stages of my career or just my love for writing in general that has made resume writing enjoyable for me.

I’ve had to learn the hard way in many cases which is something that I’ve equally come to take advantage of as I believe that it’s taught me a number of lessons over time which I love sharing here.
