This post came to mind when people ask me what exactly I do and I don’t have time I am a programmer and designer without a proper job (in an office)
Ops… no time? Come on….
As I prefer to work in an office I am checking quite often the job advertisement sites for any new opportunity that fits my skills. A new application for the job means a new cover letter. I would be precise and accurate with the people I am referring to.
The Greek crisis is still here! Another bug that must be fixed.
I have to think… solutions. Freelancing, coding, site translation, subtitling, and working as a receptionist for a few days this summer… The best thing when you are working as a freelancer is that you can work from any place as far as there is a computer and internet connection so I took my laptop and went to Folegandros island Greece.
Always I will keep my mind open to new challenges and opportunities….
Social media… Easy thing? Ops… I love Twitter and I keep an account on LinkedIn… oh yes these two are enough for me. At socialmediaday.gr one-day conference, which took place a few days ago, they mentioned that you must have as many social media accounts as you can handle. I have accounts on other social media. I have to be informed of how they work; not only as a communication tool but also as a business tool. it is a part of my work. Which one is the most appropriate for my customers’ websites …Twitter, Facebook, etc plugins?
When you Love what you do, you do it well.
If you are well organized and concentrate on your own dreams, you can survive in this demanding and competitive world. I know that I am detail-oriented, keen, and hard working with communication skills to relate well to people. Self-motivated and able to work independently, make well-thought-out decisions, prioritize and work to deadlines under pressure. ☺ and this is not a typical paragraph on a cover letter.
Yes working as a freelancer or being unemployed is the most time-consuming “job”.
Happy November ☺
P.S Yesterday I heard on TV news this we are 7 weeks away from Christmas…
