I have been trying to get an internship opportunity for the summer and
one of the very first thing I had to do was to hone my resume and
LinkedIn profile. So how about you guys, do you keep an updated LinkedIn
profile always or just when you are looking for a job?
Are any of you currently looking for jobs or internships? Have you tried
the LinkedIn premium? Any tips for job search, contacting recruiters and
building profile ?
I hope this forum helps all those who are looking for summer internship
or other full-time opportunities and will be graduating this semester
and yet to land a job. Thanks in advance for all your suggestions.
I have one other scholarship other than CollegeNet. It's Achievement
Award Scholarship for New Engineering Graduate Students that includes a
partial tuition waiver awarded in view of outstanding credentials
exhibited during undergraduate degree. It's provided by Herbert Wertheim
College of Engineering at UF and amounts to $4500 ($1500 per semester
for 3 semesters). This I could get due to my performance in undergrad
being meritorious and only a few of us got this one.
But even after deducting the scholarship amount, I still have a large
fee to pay. What really helps then is the fact that I'm trying for
scholarships at CNet which I feel is one of the best opportunities for scholarships.
Nice question. First of all, I beg to differ in my views. I don't like
makeup. Let me correct myself, I don't like makeup on myself. On girls,
I don't like too much make up. Maybe most men might not like to have it
on themselves. May be it's just peer pressure. Girls see other girls,
their friends maybe wearing really beautiful makeup- fall for it, ask
the person wearing them about it and they too wear it the next day.
Guys don't care much about fashion sense unless they are trying to woo
a girl. There is not going to be "I want that style from
tomorrow" attitude in me mostly because I'm lazy and sometimes shy
to go ask others where they got a haircut, plus nor will I feel jealous
or threatened if someone does something fashionable. Most of the time,
the way guys cope up with someone trying something new is a sadistic way
of discouraging the person who did try something new by commenting how
bad it looked or something. This is just few people who will mock you
As to this: "I have gone to class before with no makeup on in the past, and
people would legit tap on me and ask me if I was sick."
Well you made it a habit to wear makeup I presume, that when you don't
wear people tend to see something off about you and ask if you are sick.
Say you don't wear makeup for a month, do you think they would after
that, it's just what you do that forms people's perception of you.
Maybe some people are too self conscious at a unisex gym and don't want
to look bad while they work out. It's their choice but my doubt is won't
all the makeup get washed with all the sweat and make you look more of a
mess and worse than normal or do they don't workout as hard as I do and
don't sweat that much?
You might not have expected these answers nor a guy to answer in this
forum first but then, these are my views on makeup.
I had stopped eating canned food a while back. Partly because I had
heard from someone that it's not healthy and can create health problems
over time. The other lame reason was that I was too lazy to keep buying
can openers when my roommates invariably broke a new one in a week or so.
But then cutting down fresh vegetables and other stuff can take a lot of
time as compared to the comfortable canned food.
So how about you? Do you consume canned food a lot? Or do you prefer
making fresh food from scratch ?
Do you have the time for it? How can you manage cooking and college?
Thank you Kendra and Cynthia for the wishes. Thank you all for your
replies and votes. I feel privileged to have such support and amicability!!
The reason I think that CollegeNet is better in ways is that you don't
reshare others posts or just funny memes and videos. Here is where
you actually get a chance to say what you want to and people read and
vote for it based on the merit of your thoughts and arguments
(Structure and grammar of the language here compared to other social
media. Oh please! Don't let me to even get started on that )
My favorite month would be the current one, as January is that time when
you have a whole year ahead of you and you have so many important
decisions to make and you can just think of all the special things that
you did last year and reminiscence and maybe do something better.
It's also a time of realizing mistakes committed in the past and trying
to make it right and it's the time for resolutions.
Whether we follow resolutions for the rest of the year or not we at
least follow 'New Year Resolutions' at least in January. :P
Basically, a fresh start and turning over a new page in life's book.
