Volunteer

I have decided to do some volunteering work while I’m searching for jobs/waiting to get called up by Bill Gates. So I went to Do-it.org, which is a very easy-to-use, fast and efficient way of searching for voluntary work. It looks good on your C.V., you get a chance to give instead of take,take,take like it usually is with you guys, and it also gets you into the rhythm of getting up and moving your ass to work. A win-win situation if I ever saw one!
Haven’t heard from the big presentation/interview yet, but the other company (B) sent an e-mail saying they didn’t want me. They called me at 9 in the morning when I was preparing for the presentation I had to give to the other company (A), and expected me to answer their “Competency-based interview” questions. Anyhow, they (B) were useful to me as preparation for the other interview (A) later that day! (While I was setting up the laptop for my presentation (A), I made sure they saw I also had saved a folder with the name of the other company (B) so they realised they (A) were competing against another, bigger company (B) for my sweet tooshie. Manipulate: [verb] influence or control shrewdly or deviously; “He manipulated public opinion in his favor”)

  2. I was going to recommend you a McJob in the interim. A McJob looks good on a CV as well: Team work, hard work, obedience, little pay demands, etc.

    On a serious note, volunteering or a crap job are a good way of getting more motivated for a proper job later.

    I did 2 McJobs in my life! First one in China when I was in high school! We went for fun! We spent all we earned a day on a ice dream from McDonald’s after work before we went home! Second one, was for money but didn’t make much so left after 3 weekends.
