Everyday Skills/Writing demonstration Anthony.U
Applying for a job is a hard decision to make , you wont know how itll turn out , what kind of work youd be getting into for the most part , and what kind of people you will meet on your first day if you happened to get the job. Many people expect to have it easy at a job , Oh its just work Ill do fine its easy are things that often come to my mind when something work related is involved. I have yet to realize what its like to have a job and im already having these thought processes If my friends can do it , then how hard could it be? Little did I know , you must have some traits/skills required for work in order to be qualified for that specific position you are trying out for.
Skills/traits are almost a necessity for most jobs because of you have a high work ethic youll most likely not get fired and continue working at the place you desired and maybe get a raise but thats a different story. Having the skills do a job for example : Lifting , you may fit the criteria for it if youre a hard worker and can manage a heavy workload but if your personality gets in the way of you preventing what youre supposed to be doing then whats the point of them having you work there if you cant control yourself.
I myself , was considering about getting a job over the summer but I was thinking I wont have that much freetime to keep in touch with my friends. I realized its a hard decision to make but I also need to make money to afford the things I want in life or just in general. Being able to sacrifice time with my friends was a hard thing to do , I had school during the weekdays and just thinking of how a work schedule would impact my space on weekends was crazy enough. Studying for exams and tests were manageable as long as I didnt gaze off into outer space for no apparent reason in class. Managing time and workload given is a good trait to have and can be seen as having a high work ethic and can be beneficial to you in many ways inside and outside of work.
Managing my work ethic and activities outside of school are things I struggle with daily. I sometimes procrastinate , oversleep , and find myself in situations where I cant have enough free time and it usually revolves around those 2 things. But whether i’m applying for a job, finding time to keep in touch with friends, and need to turn in last minute assignments for school, I always find room to manage all these things that keep me active and doing well.
