Stick with it especially when you dislike it : A message to interns

Dear Interns,

Welcome to a brief introduction to the world of work. In the next two or three years, this will be your reality: the hunt for a job. You may be engaged by a company for the summer to gain working experience: make the most of it. I remember my first internship, I ensured that I asked everyone whether they needed help. This left a positive impact on management and staff, and I was invited back to work for future summers.

Things interns should do:

1.Get to work on time daily;

2.Talk to everyone and network;

3. Offer to help staff from various departments;

4.Ask questions about everything

5.Work overtime for at least 15 minutes twice a week:

6. Save any salaries that you receive;

7.Try to find out where you fit in , in the organisation;

8. Make friends with fellow interns;

9.Remember to enjoy your summer, go to the beach, movies,parties;

10.Observe the adults who are happy with their jobs and those who are bitter.

Sydney Group is Celebrating our First Anniversary of blogging on WordPress

What is now proven was once a thought. I always wanted to be a blogger, but I feared that I would soon run out of topics. I did not want to start the project, then abandon it when ideas were scarce. But the opposite happened, as I immersed myself in writing the universe provided me with ideas weekly. I am now able to research new topics and prepare a presentation. It takes a certain level of commitment to produce one blog post weekly. Regardless of the occurrences of the week, I try to ensure that I have content to share. If I fail one or two weeks out of the year, please forgive me. I anticipated that there would be challenges in building a readership. I celebrated when my post was viewed by one person within 5 days of my posting. One year later I got 6 likes immediately after posting and this was a huge achievement for me.
I am aware that there are full time bloggers who have dedicated their time to provide you with timely posts. I am not yet in a position to do that, so please accept my blog posts as a sneak peek into my life. I invite you to continue reading my posts as I expand my knowledge base thereby generating additional posts. I am involved in many projects at this time, but my favourite project is blogging on this forum, WordPress. It is a great way to create an archive of your life week by week. People from all around the world view my posts, and I smile with each view.
It pleases me greatly when my friends or relatives strike up a conversation with me about one of my posts. The mere fact that they took 2 minutes out of their busy schedules to read my content means a lot to me. Last year I covered a range of topics from company registration, to wills to motivational posts. I take great pride in my writing. It was a challenge at first when I received no views or likes, but I decided to keep writing. That way when I did in fact develop a readership, they could return to my previous posts. Imagine 10 years from now, I can look back at these weekly entries and smile that it was recorded. I personally write my blogs and I am giving you a taste of the world through the eyes of a young, black, and woman.
