How to get our dream job? / Comment décrocher le job de nos rêves ?

You won’t believe the discovery I made today. To get a new job, you must apply first. Ok, it’s not a discovery, but you see what I mean. Maybe not.

Should I go or should I stay?*

Have you ever tested yourself with the Myers & Briggs personality test? I did. The first time was years ago and I had no idea what it meant and for what purpose. The results could have said ‘qdmieg&@ntkcurdtudfygrtuerhzBGVIHLdlezgtbckqbuygtbk‘, it would have been the same. I re-did it. By curiosity this time. It was few months… Continue reading Should I go or should I stay?*

There is a profession I would love to do but I wouldn’t dare to do it: private investigator. Like in ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’. No, I don’t want to investigate a cartoon world. I am referring to the hat and the trench coat, the cigar’s smoke, the faded walls and piles of papers everywhere. I… Continue reading Need a PI? / Besoin d’un détective privé ?
