The Ultimate Guide on Finding a Job!

Hello my lovelies, I hope you all are doing alright. I have coached many of my friends and family members to find a job or to become an entrepreneur. One of my aunt’s daughter is doing very well now in Lagos Nigeria, as a makeup artist, I remembered few years ago, I bought some cool make up items from The Netherlands, and gave some to her as a gift, she later started practising with makeup, now she is an independent t makeup artist, doing the makeup of very famous nolly wood actresses in Nigeria.

Today’s blog post is to inspire you on how to find a job and also some great advice for employers. According to a research carried out by LinkedIn, sixty percent of jobs are unadvertised. Open solicitation is a great way to find a job. Many international students has asked me for coaching on how to find a job as well. Most international students that came from Africa, China, India always faces challenges when they finish their programmes, some of them do wish to stay back in Europe to find a job, but most of them do not know how to go about it because of language barrier, new environment, cv customisation and so on. It is very important to have a job in order to be able to sustain one self.  Finding a job is not the key thing, but your ability to keep the job depending on your competencies and passion. My advice to you is to go for jobs that you are passionate about. Some skills such as time management, self-control, Social awareness.

Some cool sites for finding a job ASAP are as follow:
Gum tree
monster board
LinkedIn
– job agencies such as Adecco, Tempo team.

Use key words when conducting research on google and be very specific.

Organisations should have good reputation and good role models to employees, be honest, self-aware, not deceitful, fairness, trust and has best interest of their employees at heart. A great organisations should also be able to create value for their employees. 

 

I hope this tips where helpful!

I love you

Cleaning Out My Closet!!!

Hey muffins 🙂 I hope you all are doing great. I have received dozens of request on how I do clean up my closet. I tend to maintain a very tidy closet and love clearing out my entire closet every two months. I also enjoy rearranging all my cloths. You may also want to wash most of your cloths during your clear out. I have been able to help so many of my friends and family members to tidy up their wardrobe! The fun of cleaning your wardrobe is that you get to find lovely cloths hidden in between your pilled up cloths you have not worn for months and also giving to charity is amazing. I have donated lots of my cloths to Dorcas and Leger de Heils in The Netherlands. If you do need any of my clothing items, makeup, shoes or cosmetics please do let me know. Please kindly support my blog by shopping my post.

Thank you so so much for all your love and support.

I do appreciate it so much.

Wishing everyone an amazing week!

4 Ways To Achieve A Stress Free Lifestyle!

Hello my dearest friends,  I have been asked alot by my friends, fans, followers, family members tips on how to become happier. Some of us may become unhappy due to the fact they lost  job, contract lost a loved one or financially drained.  Some  people tend to use anti depressant to combat it. As a biochemist, I learnt during my study years there are some amazing ways you can actually become happier, fight depression and stress with out consuming drugs that can harm your health especially drugs with side effects.

Below are some of my tips:

  1. Distract your self, try as much as you can to look for something you love doing, become a photographer, start a  new study, babysiter, painter, join a dancing class and so on and so forth. look good on daily basis.
  2. Create balance and evacuate your self from an environment, jobs that is risky for your health and wellbeing. I do believe in the saying, health is wealth. Some of us do stay in a job that you love but might be dangerous, be very careful and make the right decision, please never risk your health no matter your circumstance.
  3. Build meaningful connection, make friends, reconcile with your self, fury or whom ever that has ever offended you. The word of God sttes that  God forgives us of all our sins as long as we forgive our neigbours.
  4. Visit musuems, zoo, go for date, jogging, makeover, manicure, pedicure, spa and so on.

I hope you are inspired.

Thank you so so much for reading. Please find video below with tips on how to become happier.

I love you.
