40 Reasons You Should Hire Me

Hello, I’m Heba. I have sent you this link because I REALLY want to work at your organization because I think your company is pretty awesome– I wouldn’t have sent this link to you otherwise. Below, you will find a list of the reasons I would make a great employee and creative partner. I hope by the end of this post you will learn more about me and give me a chance.

Here it goes:

1. I have a BA in Journalism from Penn State, an MA from Dartmouth College in Liberal Studies and an MA in Middle East and Islamic Studies from the University of Exeter.

tumblr_ll4cvrKS241qgrhjdo1_500

2. I’m a fast learner.

635920369314243634-1808424565_harvard elleI’m very much a hands on learner and I hit the ground running. As well as learning quickly, I’m always looking and finding ways to make work tasks more time efficient.

3. I’m dedicated and focused.

1n6sc.gifOnce I set my mind on a goal, I put my all into achieving it. In 2006, after a mere month of fundraising, I was able to raise almost $1 million in medical supplies for war torn regions. How many other people can say that?

4. I have strong writing and editing skills.

Cp8gJw8I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. In addition to my BA in Journalism, in which I had a 3.67 GPA in my major, I had a focus in Creative Writing during my first MA at Dartmouth College.

5. I’m willing to move.

giphy (2)I have lived in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Washington, D.C., California, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Ohio, Switzerland, the U.K., Jordan, Palestine and Israel. I’m a professional at packing and moving. I’m more than willing to move for the right opportunity.

6. I can roll with the punches.

post-23206-be-water-my-friend-bruce-lee-g-nhkfI consider myself a perfectionist, but I understand that things can’t be perfect all the time. Sometimes, you have to do the best you can with what you have. I can handle all sorts of circumstances that come my way. Kind of like when I can’t find Collection or Gabrini eyeliner anywhere and I have to make due with Almay.

7. I’m organized.

Label Makers Can Definitely Help You Get Your Documents OrganizedReally, I am. I even won an MVP award from my time working at the GAP because I was the most organized employee.

8. I can stay calm in a crisis.

tumblr_n5zob3klSy1rkbvfno1_500.gif

Accidents happen and sometimes they’re unavoidable. Someone misses a deadline, a package wasn’t delivered on time, products break, people get hurt– Life happens. Working with kids between the ages of 5-17 has taught me to stay calm in all sorts of crazy scenarios. And if you’ve ever worked with kids, you know how crazy things can get.

9. I love to laugh.

tumblr_mmglvzD48Q1rvzco7o4_250.gif

Laughing and making others laugh is a great talent of mine. I’m not signing up for any open mic nights or doing any stand-up comedy acts, but I can find the funny in the ordinary.

10. I like to read.

219fa5aa141805491600461570_700wa_0

In elementary school, I set the record for the most books read during National Reading Month. You can always find me with a book in hand or an article on screen.

11. I live online and stay on top of all the new trends.

tumblr_m37b3vXhu91r46y0so1_400.gif

Most of my day is spent online digging through the mountains of information, videos, photos and such. I’m always on the lookout for the next big thing and am always the first one of my friends to identify viral material and trends.

12. The world inspires me.

robin-williams-impersonator-actor-inspired

Everywhere I look, everyone I see, inspires me in some sort of way. Everyone I meet and encounter leaves a mark on me and inspires me to make the world a better place.

13. I’m well-versed in social media.

200_s (2).gif

Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Snapchat, Periscope, Instagram, Pinterest– I love it all.

14. I’m a realistic optimist.

a3f22c412d0ca559caed3adb62b6df68

I try to see the best in everyone and in every situation, but my expectations are always realistic. After all, Rome wasn’t built in a day.

15. I can work with a team, as well as on my own.

635925653462378461-1036772743_hsm gif

Being a journalist, I’ve learned to work as part of a team. Especially when working as an editor, much of the position is dependent on working with others. Working in groups is great because everyone brings a different perspective to the project at hand. But, I have also been a teacher and have had to take responsibility for creating curriculums all on my own. Working on my own is also great because I get to see how far I can push myself.

16. I have experience managing volunteers.

x3ip08

Remember that huge fundraiser I talked about earlier? Well, I had recruited and managed the efforts of more than 50 volunteers in under a week’s time. I was responsible for training the volunteers, managing their schedules, communicating their needs and supervising their delegated responsibilities.

17. I’m an email wizard.

tumblr_mq9kgxHHY51qzcmp3o3_r1_500

Any of my former students can tell you that I respond to emails as soon as I possibly can, sometimes within minutes.

18. I’m creative.

1.jpg

I dabble in the arts and always have new and innovative ideas running through my head.

19. I have lots of interests.

200_s (1)

I like fashion, desserts, poems, coffee, bright colors, food, photography, art, literature, movies, music, naps, decorating, calligraphy, libraries and spending time with my friends.

20. I’m great at conflict resolution.

tumblr_m8ccipfL5J1qayayao2_250

I’m an American-Palestinian-Arab-Muslim-woman with Israeli citizenship. If that doesn’t make me an expert problem solver, I don’t know what does.

21. I’m good at stuff.

things-walking-dead-gif

I’m a good listener and a good friend. Some other things I’m good at include, but are not limited to: eyeliner application, fashion styling, tea brewing and reality check administrating. I’m also a pretty great actress in life more so than in art.

22. I have experience writing blogs, fiction, nonfiction, research papers, listicles, essays, executive reports, newsletters and more.

tumblr_nerwu3jiu11sgl0ajo1_500

I can do it all because I have done it all. Writing, of all sorts, is what I do and it is what makes me happy.

23. I’m confident in my abilities to speak and relate to different types of communicators.

200_s

Not everyone communicates in the same way. I have learned to adjust my tone, vocabulary and methods to fit the person I am speaking to.

24. I’m proficient in Word and other software.

Word-Up-Music-Video-little-mix-36863975-500-180.gif

Word, Adobe, ProTools, PCs, Macs, FinalCut and so much more.

25. I’m pretty good at evaluating situations.

situation-gif

I’ve always been good at reading a situation. I’m pretty observant and I can usually tell when someone is sad, happy, irritated, excited or any other range of emotion.

26. My creative writing pieces have been published in several magazines.

anigif_enhanced-buzz-25892-1414855372-5

You can check out my published writing by clicking on the Portfolio link at the top of the page.

27. I’m always looking to improve.

Cher_and_Dionne_Makeover

Whether it’s getting a new haircut or trying to learn a new language, I’m always trying to improve myself, both inside and out.

28. I can dish it and I can take it… In a respectful manner, of course. Tumblr_lp0rbgfnEg1qfal67o1_r1_250.gif

As a writer, criticism can be tough. I put my heart and soul into my work and I know how disheartening harsh criticism can be. I’ve grown a thick skin over the years and can take criticism pretty well. I believe that criticism should always be constructive and when I give constructive criticism to an employee, I am always respectful and appreciative for their hard work. Constructive criticism should always help the other person improve their work and boost their self-confidence.

29. I take pride in my work.

tumblr_mis4lpHqrk1r9gl25o2_250

But just the right amount of pride. I’m not cocky, I promise.

30. I want to plant some roots.

giphy (1)

I’ve moved around a lot and I’ve had a lot of different type of jobs. Now, I’m ready to settle down and really grow within a company.

31. I’m a coordination queen.

tumblr_nbec9o4tyc1qlvwnco1_500

That goes for both my outfits and my workload. I’m all about the time management skills.

32. I’m passionate about human rights, education, social justice, prison reform, women’s health, politics and life.

tumblr_inline_mp0blmWka21qz4rgp

33. I’m always prepared.

game_of_thrones

I watch a lot of scary movies. As a result, I’m now prepared for any and all scenarios, at all times. If the zombie apocalypse ever happens, come with me because I have a plan.

34. I like to bake.

Baking-cookies_1641

I love baking and all things sweet. I also believe that sharing is caring, so, if you hire me you will be sure to have a taste of the sweet life.

35. I smell nice.

tumblr_lxkm8cJ1wV1qcptr6o1_500

I wear perfume even when I don’t leave the house, because I deserve to smell nice. I’m also super hygienic and carry around hand-sanitizer that doubles as lotion. It’s kind of my thing.

36. I love animals.

tumblr_nsugbeXumj1ucuwbho1_500

Well, most animals. I have a fear of geese and swans, but other than that, I love animals. One of my dreams is to open up an animal sanctuary so I can love and hang out with my animal friends all day.

37. I’m a feminist.

anigif_enhanced-buzz-16180-1410397727-18

I believe everyone should be a feminist and we should all be working towards equality and justice for women.

38. I make 11:11 wishes for good measure.

4930523e98e8f4949a4f34d37df74e40

It can’t hurt, right? I’ll make a wish for you too.

39. My life is a meme.

e37d6234fba678f1e0ee3c0852beddd97cc5bd549ecf4ef9425cae05e83f8a1f

Anyone who knows me, knows that if there is a one in a million chance of something strange happening to someone, it’s going to be me.  And most days people get a kick out of it. Me included.

40. I want to work and have fun doing it.

giphy

I want my work to be meaningful and I want to enjoy doing it. I’m not looking to clock in and clock out. I want to make a difference and improve people’s lives. I may not be able to change the world, but I certainly can change a tiny corner of it– even if it is one person.

It’s like they [Confucius] say: Choose a job you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life.

Reboot For The Worn Out Professional

Does What It Says On The Tin. In These Challenging Times, Your Customers Are Under Pressure In Every Part Of Their Life. Help Them Restore Their Energies And Enthusiasm Whenever They Want To With This Unique Three Step Reboot Programme.

How to Re-energise Your Drive in Three Simple Steps…

Your ready-made, tried-and-tested toolkit to recover your passion and energy AT YOUR OWN PACE

Dear fellow Professional,

My name is Steve Corkhill and in the next few minutes I’m going to show you how, no matter how worn out you may feel right now, you can reboot your energy and enthusiasm to achieve completely new levels.

It happens to all high performers at some time or other

Even experts with great attitudes – the real professionals of this world – have times when life gets really hard. As a professional you stick at it because your livelihood depends on your reputation and your reputation depends on keeping high standards. Yet the demands on you to deliver more and better are relentless and exhausting and can take you to places where you don’t want to be.

Like many others I ‘hit the wall’ when I was least expecting it. It made me feel frightened and destabilised. Moreover I noticed other professionals around me going through a similar experience yet reluctant to admit it. Unwittingly, we were all running the very real risk of destroying our reputations, health and of course our finances simply because we were worn out and hadn’t acknowledged it.

If your batteries are running down, your energy, passion or interest will be fading. Every day you are giving of yourself and your life energy, and if you don’t know how to recharge you end up like a dead battery. That will be reflected in the quality of your work and your attitude. Others – clients and colleagues – will notice.

It doesn’t have to be like this…

If your computer acted like you feel, you’d hit the reset button and reboot because you know that clears away the excess junk and restores a steady state. The same can apply to you. Simply reboot.

FREE preview – an instant download of the opening chapters of ‘Reboot for The Worn Out Professional‘. Opens a new window.

Rediscover your Monday smile

Instead of living with increasing stress and your  mind filled with clutter and ‘noise’, it is perfectly possible to wake up again on Mondays with a smile and in control of your life.

Extensive research has revealed proven steps and techniques to help the worn out professional. I have taken the very best of these and created a unique three step reboot programme that fits the working pattern of all busy professionals.

Having this powerful, flexible toolkit readily available has completely changed my outlook and my life. I believe it will change yours, too.

When I recognised what was happening to me I sought practical, realistic answers; solutions that met my needs and fitted into my professional life rather than requiring me to fit in with them. It quickly became clear that most of the available advice was insufficient. Every expert opinion I found was often contradicted by another expert arguing the opposite.

Like many professionals, I enjoy getting to the bottom of things, so I spent literally hundreds of hours and a great deal of money scouring the internet, books and articles. I tested new and innovative ideas and rediscovered older, highly effective strategies that seemed to have got lost in the noise of the new.

Above all I was looking for easy, workable ways to get the result I was after. I had to sift through a large amount of bizarre and frankly loopy information to find the absolute gems that worked to restore my drive and my life.

Regain the bounce you’ve lost

The result is a life-changing three-step programme that is ‘Reboot for the Worn Out Professional’. It will restore your inner knowledge and equip you with tools and techniques that will re-energise and enthuse you at a pace that you completely control. Restore the thrill and excitement of working to high standards, whenever you want to.

As a professional, your mindset is your income – your life. There can be no better way of improving your circumstances than getting your head right.

The impact of being worn out can be massive. It’s not just money you may be losing, but credibility.

Discover

  • A programme to provide you maximum output for minimum input
  • Over 30 powerful ‘Quick Wins’. Potent techniques to generate energy quickly and naturally
  • Techniques to clear the clutter and noise that can be used time and again
  • The fascinating psychology and neurology behind feeling good
  • A unique programme modelled on the way a computer reboots

The value of a proven toolkit

It’s all too easy for clients to lose confidence in you. Once you lose trust in the mind of your clients the cost in time and effort to recover it is enormous. The chances are high you may never regain it. All too often, once your credibility goes, so does the client. Reputational impact is something that terrifies all major organisations with good reason and they spend millions to prevent it happening.

Setting aside the enormous impacts on your health, we all know the cost of feeling and operating below par. What’s your professional rate of pay – $50 an hour? $100? $200? $500? More? The cost of losing a week or more income just because you don’t have the means on hand to turn around a dip can be enormous.

When people get into this desperate state of mind many sign up for personal improvement programmes – sometimes on the other side of the world – at a cost of upwards of $10,000 for a 48 hour pick-me-up that they hope will provide a long-term solution. The reality is they often forget the content within a week of returning to their routine. That’s not unusual – it’s perfectly normal human behaviour. You may have been down this road.

Too many professionals head for therapy. How much is a therapy session nowadays? I looked it up – anywhere between $100 and $300 for one hour. And how many of those sessions will it take to get you back on your feet? Here’s an idea from the Royal College of Psychiatrists website: “if you have individual CBT you will usually meet with a therapist for between 5 and 20, weekly, or fortnightly sessions. Each session will last between 30 and 60 minutes.” That’s a lot of money. And time.

Others will sit and spend hundreds of hours searching the internet, only to discover that the experts seem to contradict each other. They only find that out once they have spent those hours and thousands of dollars in their search. I know. I’ve been there.

In “Reboot for the Worn Out Professional” the hard work has been done for you. My initial motive was to do it for me – to save my life balance, my professionalism…my sanity. The results have been invaluable, life-changing. In only a short time I re-established my balance with clients, friends and family and was back on form. It wasn’t long before colleagues were asking how I’d turned things around. Some had observed my slide and loss of enthusiasm and now noticed my return to energy and equilibrium. They wanted to do this too. Above all, I began to wake up happy on Mondays again. And that’s a priceless feeling.

I have already been asked to consider building a full course around these techniques. The nature of courses is that they are more expensive than a book. A lot more expensive. Over $297 is typical.

For the moment, ‘Reboot for The Worn Out Professional’ remains as a downloadable e-book priced at only £6.59 (US approximately $9.99).

Over the years you have invested a lot of time and effort to get where you are today. Don’t let your feelings power you down when you can harness and control them instead.

meet the petition author

Amy Thompson

Mankato, Minnesota, US

 

On October 23rd, a report revealed that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) sold 1,794 federally protected wild horses that ended up in Mexican slaughterhouses. Despite evidence of wrongdoing, state officials have refused to even investigate what happened.

The BLM’s history of mismanaging and abusing the horses in its care has outraged Amy for years. The latest report was the last straw. She started a Care2 petition to demand that U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch investigate the BLM for sending wild horses to the slaughterhouse. Will you sign Amy’s petition?

It is illegal for the BLM to sell federally protected horses to “kill buyers” who would send them to be slaughtered. It is also illegal for the BLM to sell large numbers of horses to one buyer. So BLM staff broke the law when they sold the 1,794 horses to Coloradan rancher Tom Davis, who then sold them to Mexican slaughterhouses.

It is unclear whether the BLM is corrupt or negligent, but it is clear that Davis has made a lot of money from the deal. He only paid the BLM $10 for each horse, but sold them to the Mexican slaughterhouses for at least $100 a head. Davis didn’t even have to pay for their transportation since the BLM spent $140,000 of taxpayer money to deliver the horses right to his doorstep.

The BLM is supposed to protect the wild horses in its care, not send them to the slaughterhouse. If the Colorado state and district attorneys don’t want to pursue an investigation, then the U.S. Attorney General should step up. Sign this petition to demand a federal investigation into the BLM. The more people speak out, the more likely it is that we will pressure U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch into taking action.

Thank you,

To the Dartmouth Community:

Last January, I announced the launch of Moving Dartmouth Forward, a plan to greatly reduce extreme, harmful behaviors on campus including high-risk drinking, sexual assault and violence, and incidents of bias and exclusivity. I am writing to give you a progress report now that we are six months post announcement and two terms into the start of implementation.

My goal in launching the Moving Dartmouth Forward initiative was to ensure that our campus is a vibrant and supportive community focused on intellectual growth and engagement both within and outside the classroom. The elements of Moving Dartmouth Forward were based in large part on recommendations from a Presidential Steering Committee, chaired by Professor Barbara Will. In crafting its recommendations, the Steering Committee sought broad input from the extended Dartmouth community, consulted with experts on high-risk behavior, and studied best practices at a number of peer institutions.

A far-reaching element of this plan is to transform residential life at Dartmouth by developing a house community system, which we will launch next fall. These house communities will enrich the opportunities for social interaction and intellectual engagement within our residence hall system. We selected six talented house professors who will guide the creation of house communities in cooperation with Rebecca Biron, the new dean of the College, and they will be soliciting input from faculty, students and staff during the coming year. Additionally, we have committed $1 million to student programming this year.

Beyond the house communities system, Moving Dartmouth Forward includes a number of measures that will promote a safer and healthier campus. Last spring we revised the College alcohol policy to extend the ban on hard alcohol from students under age 21 to all undergraduates, and we differentiated penalties for violation of the alcohol policy depending on whether the violation involved beer or wine, or hard alcohol.

In the area of sexual assault, we significantly strengthened the College’s judicial policies a year ago. In the coming weeks, Safety and Security will send out a community announcement about a new Dartmouth-specific smartphone safety app, which I encourage every member of the community who uses a smartphone to download. Also regarding sexual assault, we have signed a memorandum of understanding with WISE, a regional advocacy and crisis services organization for those affected by domestic or sexual violence, and hope to soon have a WISE advocate working on campus. We are also piloting aspects of a four-year sexual assault education curriculum. And, later this fall, we plan to launch an online “consent manual” which will help to clarify acceptable and unacceptable behavior.

Last spring, students, faculty, and staff participated in three working groups charged with drafting a code of conduct, revising our event policy procedures, and drafting new standards for organizational accountability. I would like to thank those who took the time to work on these committees. This week, entering students will sign the new citizenship pledge, which was drafted by one of the working groups. Together with our Principle of Community and Academic Honor Principle, this new pledge affirms the rights and obligations that we all hold as members of an intellectual community–the duty to act with integrity at all times, in and out of the classroom; the right to express ideas freely, even if they are not popular, while remaining respectful of the rights of others; and the recognition that our diversity enriches all of us.

During the fall, we will introduce new rules crafted by the Social Event and Alcohol Management Working Group relating to alcohol service at undergraduate parties. Later in the year, we will introduce a new standard for organizational accountability based on the work of one of the working groups. All student organizations must make a positive contribution to our community in order to maintain recognition. These measures are in addition to those enacted last spring: a ban on pledge periods in all student organizations and a requirement for all Greek houses to have faculty advisers.

Last spring we conducted the AAU Sexual Assault Climate Survey and this fall we will conduct a Community Study, a campus-wide survey that looks at the learning, working, and living environment at Dartmouth (our campus climate). In the coming weeks, you will receive information about this campus climate study and I encourage all students, faculty, and staff to participate. We will release results of these surveys and use the information they provide to enhance our efforts to create a safe and inclusive campus.

Finally, to ensure accountability, I named an external review panel that will report regularly to our trustees on whether we are taking the steps that we promised in the Moving Dartmouth Forward initiative.

As we move forward with implementation, we will continue to assess the effectiveness of our efforts using information from the surveys and all other available data. I invite you to visit the Moving Dartmouth Forward website to stay informed about our progress.

Sincerely,

Phil Hanlon ’77

President

Camp Coordination and Management (CCCM) Expert Job posted by: Danish Refugee Council, Ethiopia/Djibouti Posted on: August 21, 2015

Job description

Background

DRC has been providing relief and development services in the Horn of Africa since 1997 and initially focused assisting those who are displaced by conflict, but now works with all those in the region impacted by displacement. DRC has offices across the region, and has been working in Ethiopia in 2009 and Djibouti since earlier in 2015 to address the needs of refugees, IDPs, and migrants in or transiting those countries. DRC has or will have offices in Djibouti-Ville, Ali-Sabieh, and Obock, and implements projects in three refugee camps across Djibouti.

Much of DRC’s work in Djibouti is focused on responding to the refugee influx into that country from Yemen.

The refugee camp site, Markazi, is located on the coast, four kilometers away from Obock town, the capital of the region. Markazi camp currently lacks many of the facilities and services associated with refugee camps.
