Lover of Chipotle, my wife and my three animals. And yes, in that order.
Growing up, most of my music intake came from one of two sources. The first, whatever was playing on Top 40 radio at the time and the second, whatever hair-band 80's rock n' roll CD my dad threw on. In my brain at the time swirled Fireflies by Owl City and Don't Stop Believing by Journey. 2009 was a wild time in my life.
With a lackluster 2020 for us MCU fans, Marvel has given us a beautiful gift with the slate of new tv shows and movies for 2021. While we didn't get to see Black Widow in 2020 like we were supposed to, Marvel is more than making that up to us fans with barrage of new content that is ready to go January 15, with WandaVision.
It is no shock at all that Disney/Pixar once again created an astonishing masterpiece in their latest movie, Soul. If you know anything about the studios over at Disney/Pixar, is that they seldom release movies, but when they do, they never miss the mark. That can be applied to Soul. If you have seen Inside Out, Disney/Pixar's take on what it means to have emotions and not only to feel sad, but sometimes sadness can also bring joy, then you know they are able to take an idea that is so grandiose and synthesize down into something easily digestible for any layman audience to enjoy.
Me personally, I hate this question. Just wanted that as a disclaimer right up top. The reason I hate this question is because it pairs with the “What are your biggest weaknesses” question and you have to somehow spin that into a strength without it actually being your strength. It’s exhausting. If you are ever asked what your biggest strengths are, please do not say that you are a hard worker. Being a hard worker is the minimum requirement to do anything anywhere for the rest of time. Being a hard worker means absolutely nothing. Do you know how many other people out there who are “hard workers”? Let’s fine tune here.
More likely than not you are going to be asked common interview questions. Most of the time there is no real right answer, and the person asking wants to know more about how you see yourself. Are you confident in yourself and your abilities? What do you actually think of yourself beyond what you have written down on paper? Are you only able to talk about your past experiences as the crutch that allowed you to be in the interview in the first place or is there more to you that can bring value to the company. The, “Why should we hire you”, question is asking just that.
When you apply for a job, most of the time through LinkedIn or Indeed, if your resume matches well enough, you will be offered a first round phone screening interview. Don’t panic. These calls are the most routine interviews you will ever have, and if you have applied to a lot of jobs like me, they are pretty standard.
