Interviews and elevator pitches!

If you meet the person who could hire you for your dream job, and only had thirty seconds to persuade them to do so, what would you say?  This is the essence of an elevator pitch!   The key is to know your goals, and have confidence in your abilities!  Keep it short, straight to the point and give a business card at the end!  Who are you? What are you doing now? How have your past abilities helped you and will help you towards this position? What are your long and short-term goals? These are all questions to keep in mind with forming an elevator pitch. Often at interviews and informal interviews, you will hear, "tell me about yourself" your answer should not be the time for you to be humble, nor arrogant. Use your elevator pitch to cater your past experiences and goals to the position at hand.  Below are a few tips for informal and formal interviews!

My Skin Care routine

For the longest time I have suffered from dry skin. Afer years of searching I have finally found a simple routine to help keep my skin feel soft and less dry then before.

Morning: Wash face with cetaphil bar soap. This cleanses the skin while leaving  my skin moisterized and not stripping it of it's natural oils. Next, I  I  mosterize with the JAR cetiphal lotion with a bit of jojoba oil mixed in. For some reason, I feel that the jar one is much thicker than the one in the bottle. on super cold days, i add my shea butter lotion for extra protection.

Nights: Wash face. I use Missha liquidly facial cleanser to clense my face,its a  South Korean brad and is the BEST! I suggest you all use it.  I then follow up with  night cream.

once a week: exfoliate with _________ cleanser and a facial scrubbie. This leaves my skin feeling smooth and renewed again! I got this in South Korea, but i used to use st. johns faical scrub.

Every day: DRINK WATER. im pretty sure i mention this in every other b…
