Danger Will Robinson! #Deathtrap

27 Aug

This is the hallway to my classroom each day – because #safety and #health are, like, so passe! 😅
Yesterday they had a machine spraying the ceiling and made all the kids walk underneath the spraying machine while its running and showering them in #chemicals. Today the #marble floors were all soaked. Have you ever walked on wet marble? #China has an old Love affair with the stuff, but when wet it turns into a slip-n-slide. 😂
Meanwhile, we’re all sitting around breathing the chemicals all day during class.

Lol, I need this intensive to be finished. 😛

Studying Abroad: A RĂ©sumĂ© Builder

If you are interested in Studying Abroad or if you have Studied Abroad in the past, now might be a good time to look at how it can help expand your Résumé.   

Study Abroad

One of the simplest ways that you can use your Study Abroad experience in your RĂ©sumĂ© is simply by listing it as part of your education.  There are multiple ways you can benefit from this.  First, if you are new to the career field, then your RĂ©sumĂ© might be running a little thin on information; use the “Studying Abroad” experience as a filler/lengthener.  Sounds silly/cheap, but everything counts in the job search.  More importantly, if you list the foreign college that you studied under, it adds to the depth of your educational experience. It shows that you have studied under Professors coming from different backgrounds or ways of thought.  It adds to the fact that you might bring in unique or different ideas to their work. For example, I have studied the Law in Civil Law nations and Common Law nations. That means that simply by stating that I studied in China and the United States, my interviewers can tell that I understand ways different people view the law and how it can be applied in alternative ways.   It strengthens the fact that I stand out from the rest of their applicants.

Skills

One of the things you are going to need on both your Résumé and your Cover Letter are key terms, skills, and/or character traits.  You will frequently be asked to name your strengths, weaknesses, and abilities.  Or perhaps you just need to show them what you can offer their team.  If you Study Abroad, there are many helpful terms that can now be applied to you.  Some of those you might use include: Continue reading

Korean Architecture

23 Jun

Traveled around a bunch of places in Seoul today on a wandering trip. Stumbled across some great architectural structures; I love the buildings here. Kind of like being in an art museum, especially in the Gangnam area.
