Applying for jobs
Henry graduated from college with a degree in Elementary Education, and began searching for jobs. While doing an internship previously as a university student, he discovered his greatest strength and interest was teaching children in a regular classroom setting. He also had previous volunteer experience as a camp and youth counselor.

He therefore decided to focus his job hunt on elementary schools in his state. First, he prepared and printed a neat and comprehensive CV, highlighting his educational background, work and volunteer experiences. He then added a section pointing out his other skills in such areas as foreign languages and computer programming. Finally, he added a segment about his interests, and listed some personal references.”

What Is Emotional Intelligence, and Why Does It Matter?
By Marisa Sanfilippo, Expert

October 24, 2019

“Emotional intelligence in business, or the ability to understand your emotions and others’, is crucial regardless of what industry your business is in. By honing your emotional intelligence skills, you can gain an edge over others (and possibly boost your income and job satisfaction) by successfully working with difficult people and resolving complex problems.

“Understanding your emotions, controlling them, and understanding other peoples’ might be the most important asset in working with others,” said Eric Lupton, CEO of Life Saver Pool Fence.

In a study published in the Journal of Vocational Behavior, Joseph C. Rode, professor of management at the Farmer School of Business at Miami University of Ohio, and his coauthors found emotional intelligence is linked to higher salaries and increased job satisfaction.”

“¿Prefieres leer los libros de uno en uno o varios a la vez?” por Jaime Rubio Hancock

¿Prefieres leer los libros de uno en uno o varios a la vez?

JAIME RUBIO HANCOCK

Verne; 25.02.2020

“Todos tenemos nuestras pequeñas manías cuando leemos: por ejemplo, hay quien solo lee en papel y no en libro electrónico. Algunos necesitan estar cómodos, mientras que otros pueden leer de pie en un autobús lleno. Y también hay quien coge un libro y sigue con él hasta que lo acaba y quien va leyendo varios a la vez, alternando la lectura entre dos, tres o más títulos.

Uno de estos últimos es César Viteri, que en Twitter contó que lleva unas semanas combinando la lectura de varios libros, lo que a su vez llevó a que otros lectores compartieran su experiencia. La prueba le está yendo bien: según contaba, lee más “y con más ganas”.”

[@eugenio_fouz, picture of my kindle.

Page 1, Barrie´s Peter Pan]

When you are the owner of a kindle you can read ebooks easily. The impression a reader gets from reading lines here is that of being able to read hundreds of words very quick. One page contains around fifteen or eighteen lines, every line is made up with 6, 7 or 8 words only so that you feel relaxed and focused on those few words.

Moreover, you may select your favourite font or make letters bigger size and easier to read. Kindle is a good companion for literature addicts.

Having watched the last episode of the second season of You [Netflix TV series] I think I ´ve got a crush on la Dolorosa

[Los siete dolores de la Santísima Virgen (Sevilla)]

In the story based on Hidden Bodies written by Carol Kepnes, the love Love feels for his soul mate Joe / Will looks like a sinful passion. What crazy love is not insane?

-Can you see the similar appearance of Love and the Virgin?-

I wolf you, Love
