Back in action

NOTE : All posts from Friday 16th March 2012 till Wednesday 28th March 2012 are backdated posts.


Sorry for the looooong hiatus. 

Friends from Malaysia were visiting and now the in-laws. However, I realised that I should not use that as an excuse. If I was working and working required me to write, I can't be saying things like,"oooh friends are here, can't find time to do write".

Anyways, I will try my best to blog and post about the places I brought my friends to and the food we've been having but it will appear on the past weeks' dates instead.

On a different note...

Today, took the in-laws out to shop for groceries for dinner. After that, came home and was writing out a cover letter for a job application and I hate it SO much. I think it is a waste of time as everything that one needs to know and read is and SHOULD be in the resume. Why would some potential employers want super loong resumes and wordy cover letters are beyond me. 

There have been cases where Applicant #1 wrote a really good cover letter but doesn't deliver at the end of the day where else Applicant #2 doesn't get the job due to his abysmal cover letter despite better work ethics. Sad but it is reality.

Anyone can get someone to write a really good cover letter and shining resume for them. The question is, do you do that just to get the job? Do you polish up your resume by certain embellishments in the hopes to impress would be employers? For now, I can say that I've not done it and I don't plan to do it. I rather be honest about it than get a job on lies. 

Oh well, then again, these days, integrity doesn't seem to value much. But at the end of the day, it is whether one can live with our own life's choices and decisions we make.

Toodles for now...

Hey there, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility
issues. When I look at your blog site in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening
in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to
give you a quick heads up! Other then that, amazing blog!
