When it comes to preparing for an interview, there are many different things that you can do to get ready. I wrote another blog called “Interview Like a Pro”, which outlined four simple things you can do to prep for an interview.
To take your preparation one step further, I wanted to add three things that you could do specifically on LinkedIn before an interview to gain an additional edge. Continue reading “Top 3 Things To Do On LinkedIn Before An Interview”
I am a summer girl through and through. I love everything about summer and when we have the final drive home from our summer cottage on Labor Day Weekend it always brings tears to my eyes. So dramatic, but so true.
To change my focus from what is behind me, I try to focus on what is ahead.
Even though I haven’t been to “school” in years there is a certain exciting feeling you get in September around the new “school year”. It’s the beginning of a new chapter, a new season, and a new opportunity to start on the right foot.
This time of the year always makes me reminisce and think about the things that my parents would make me and my siblings do once we started the new school year.

I want to start by saying this is NOT an ad. I repeat. NOT an ad.
You’re probably thinking – no sh**t Sherlock people wouldn’t pay you to do ads… not yet at least ;). But in case you thought I was some super hip influencer who got offered free stuff to market, I certainly am NOT and do NOT.
I DO just like to talk about the things I learn about and do every day that helps me in hopes that after reading about it maybe it will help you too!
That is why today I wanted to dedicate this entire post to my Start Today Journal I got from the Hollis Co. Continue reading “This tool has totally changed my life…”
What I learned from a tour guide, Chef and Michelangelo
I went to Italy on a 10-day trip to Tuscany and Rome a couple of weeks ago. It was my immediate family and our significant others. We went to Tuscany for 8 days and then ended the trip in Rome. We stayed in a beautiful villa in Panzano, Tuscany and took small day trips to the local towns and then some of the bigger cities like Florence, Luca, and Cinque Terre. We had a private tour guide who was local to the area and brought us around. We had a chef who came and taught us to cook homemade pasta and pizza, and then we have another tour guide bring us all through Florence to point out and teach us about the art and history of the city.
It truly was the trip of a lifetime. We had such a blast drinking wine, eating unlimited bread cheese and pasta and just being together. But the icing on the cake was really learning about and getting to know some of the locals. Our tour guides and chef were so gracious, all with huge smiles and a deep appreciation for their country and its history. They all lived very different lives, but they all taught me something that I didn’t think I would find in the classic Italian laid back culture.

Coming off a 10-day vacation in Italy with a 9.5-hour plane ride, a couple of blog ideas were bound to happen. For starters, the trip we had truly was a trip of a lifetime.
My family and our significant others rented a villa in Tuscany for 8 days. We took day trips to the local towns, Florence, Luca, and Cinque Terre. Then we ended the trip with two nights in Rome.
We were toured around by locals, taught how to cook pasta and pizza by a local chef, had multiple wine tastings at local Chianti wineries, and had some really interesting tours in the big cities. We drank unlimited wine, Aperol Spritz’s, and ate homemade pasta and bread and oil Every. 👏Single.👏 Day👏. Continue reading “What I learned in Italy: The Food Edition!👩🍳”
I LOVE reading. It hasn’t always been this way, but I got here.
When I was a kid, I didn’t always like reading, I actually kind of hated it at points. But I always really wanted to like it. I wanted to be thought of as a “reader”, a lover of books, pretty much a real live Belle from Beauty and the Beast. I really wish I was kidding here…but I’m totally serious…
At the time I just couldn’t get into any books that I would read. Then in about 7th grade, I finally read this book Flipped. It is a total teeny-bopper book, but I fell in love with it and it totally changed how I felt towards reading. Continue reading “Summer Reads for 2019”
In this blog, I try to make it a combination of work and play. For most of us, that’s what our lives primarily consist of working our real-time jobs and then whatever we do outside of work, which isn’t always “play” or fun, but you get the idea!
Since I am a recruiter and interview people all day every day, I give career advice and interview advice from what I have experienced in hopes that it will help you when the time comes. Continue reading “What makes YOU an attractive candidate”
