I was working on an assignment about specific job interview questions when I came across a tough one -network engineering. Now I will be the first one to admit that I know absolutely nothing about that field so I was stumped at first. However, I figured I would try to be a little resourceful and pay a visit to Snagajob's resident network engineers. It ended up being an awesome decision. They were extremely helpful and I ended up with a great finished product. Along the way I realized two things. First, that everyone here is willing to offer a helping hand regardless of what department you're in, your title, etc. And that sometimes you should think outside the box and take initiative. Going above and beyond in order to get the job done can only end positively.
My first college lifestyle article went out this week. It's about the forgotten dorm room essentials. When I first got to college, it was crazy how many necessities I left behind because I was so worried about packing up all my clothes and shoes. So hopefully someone can learn from my mistake.
I had a pretty huge presentation the other day. I was reporting on the behind-the-scenes information of the Snagajob website, like how many visitors we're getting and how they get to the site. Not only did I have to make sure I knew what I was talking about, but I was presenting in front of the whole marketing team so it was nerve-racking to say the least. The presentation ended up going really well. I'm starting to think I work better under a little pressure. I'm realizing that being nervous is completely normal, and sometimes inevitable. All you can do is prepare to the best of your abilities and push on through.
In a nut shell, just another amazing week. Talk to you soon!
