SEMPLICITA'

 Hotel SB Diagonal Zero, Barcelona, Spain. January, 2016






SIMPLICITY IS THE ULTIMATE SOPHISTICATION






 Hi girls,
how was your weekend? Mine very quiet. Here in Barcelona is raining (it's a bit rare considering the Mediterranean climate)....I take advantage of that to relax and look for a good job....I'm so stressed out for this, I'm looking  for something that could take account of my academic education, personal experiences and languages I speak.....uff...looks so hard....the main problem, in my opinion, is that the selection of candidates is made online and the main thing is work experience, so people with a good academic background but without 3-5 years of work experience are disadvantaged....I think should change the general approach and some selection criteria....you can work in the same area for many years and do it bad, without passion and enthusiasm....I thought a lot if I've to settle for anything, but I think I deserve something better than I did in the past....It's not about arrogance or conceit, it's simply believing in yourself and in your own ability. Trouble and commitment should be rewarded at some point!!!! What's your opinion about?Let me know!!!
Sophia



Ciao ragazze,
come avete passato il w.e.? Il mio è stato molto tranquillo. Qui a Barcellona sta piovendo (è abbastanza raro visto il clima mite), infatti ne ho approfittato per rilassarmi in casa e mandare vari curriculum ....Sono alquanto stressata per questa situazione...Sto cercando un impiego che tenga in considerazione la mia laurea, le esperienze all'estero e le varie lingue che parlo, ma non è affatto semplice....Credo che il problema di fondo stia nel fare la selezione dei candidati principalmente online, basandosi quasi esclusivamente sull' esperienza professionale e di conseguenza chi si è laureato e specializzato, non avendo 3-5 anni come esperienza lavorativa nello stesso settore, ne esce svantaggiato. Penso che si dovrebbe tornare a metodi più tradizionali, non focalizzandosi solo su un pezzo di carta, ma valutando la persona nel suo insieme. Si può aver lavorato parecchi anni nello stesso settore ma senza passione ed entusiasmo.... Ho pensato spesso di accontentarmi  ma non credo sia giusto, mi merito di più, qualcosa di meglio dei lavori che ho fatto in precedenza....non si tratta di arroganza ma semplicemente di credere in se stessi e nelle proprie capacità....l'impegno e la fatica hanno il loro peso e prima o poi, spero, verranno ricompensati. Voi cosa ne pensate?

  5. I agree with you regarding believing in yourself. I was just thinking about something similar this morning on how sometimes we want something but aim be lower because we feel we might not be ready yet for what we want and don't know yet how to get there. It's ready to end up trap. If we want something we need to do everything necessary and sacrifice a lot sometimes to get to it. It will not be easy but it will be worth it.
    I wish you the best dear :)

    1. Yes, that's the point!!!I did so many sacrifices, I studied a lot, worked, also in my free time, spent time for learning different languages...now I'm tired and I've no idea how my future will be, but I know this is my last opportunity and then, if I'll not reach what I want, I'll totally change my life and perspectives...and I'm aware I did all that I could do....I'll regret anything!!!
      A big hug!!!

  8. If you think you even touch the qualifying requirements by just a tad, I say GO FOR IT! Great hiring managers know how to spot passion and room for growth despite how much experience a person has. I think you can truly shine! xx

  9. I like this relaxed vibe you're sporting, you always look lovely in whatever you're wearing. In regards to your question, there are companies who favour more with experience than with qualifications while some the other way around which is really harder to prove in the applicant's part. In that case, you have to sell yourself more by acing the interview part and streamlining your resume to focus more your strengths. Sorry this is long and this is only my opinion, this is what I learned in 20 something years in IT industry here in Sydney which I really want to share too. But I believe you can do it and get the job of dreams. Cheers!

  11. I really love your laid black, low-key classy outfit with an edge! You look stunning!

    I think experience and academic achievements should both be given a chance. Experience is important, but it's not the only thing that matters. Good luck on your career!

  16. Esatto! La clausola 'dell'esperienza' è una gran presa in giro e non dimostra certo la bravura della persona ne può valutarla... bisognerebbe fare giornate di test e chiacchierate dirette, ma ormai sembra che nessuno abbia tempo o passione per queste cose. Ti auguro tanta fortuna!

  18. I am such a big fan of pairing sneakers with dressier outfits. It makes the outfit so much more wearable and perfect for travel too! I always make sure I have comfy shoes on when exploring!

  20. Love this look, monochrome is always a winner for me! You're so right about the job selection process, so tricky to get all your skills across online.. I would recommend making your CV look amazing, like in the form of a website or something different. Making your application really well tailored to the job also helps I've found. Good luck in your search!
