I sampled some things you can read online:
And about that book...well, how about you get on my case a little bit and give me 2 weeks to deliver on it?
So, I have come to understand that if I get shortlisted for an interview- I attend it, show the interviewers the real "happy go lucky" me- and then wait for a week- and email them to thank them so much for their time and wish them well.
Okay- allow me to explain- I am Me, everyone else is taken- and if it means trying to fit some structured profile then I am too hot-headed to do that- maybe that's why I love research and field work- out there, it is your personality and ability to think on your feet that sees you through.
But, if there is one thing I am grateful for and Lord help me if my Mom is reading this- is that those organizations never chose me.
So, there is so much going on right now about The World We Want 2015- and youth unemployment is soaring in most countries with very many asking what could be done to solve this problem.

Lucy, a good friend, has sent to over forty and she is already depressed- she needs a better paying job to meet her Wardrobe demands.
I was sending my current employer my work for the day- when I decided to check my sent mail- and you would not believe me if I told you that since graduating from the University (with Honors :-) ) last Summer- I have sent my applications to fifteen organizations.
It is also time consuming ( a waste of 60 seconds) to write an email and send to all those unsuccessful candidates.
Why? It is expensive to call up candidates you have not hired.
Bingo! They NEVER call.
"Thank you for coming, we will get in touch with you in a week about our decision."
With time- I have been engrossed in various activities that I simply pushed it to the bottom of my priorities list (I do have like tonnes of them)- so with a little help from my past interview- I decided to focus on the lies Interviewers tell you:
I have always wanted to write a book on what my life as a Graduate has been like.
