Hind-Sight is 20/20…what you wish you knew before taking your first job…

Hello my ONEin3ers.  Oh it is Tuesday and like most Tuesdays we will be asking you a question.  Unlike most Tuesdays however, Devin and I are not going to have our brainstorming sessions to come up with a fabulous question, but rather steal it.

My good friend Carlie, who reads the blog, despite living in Connecticut (gasp….I know, we try to not hold it against her) posted a fabulous question on her Facebook wall last week.  Carlie graduated from Colby College in 2009, and has recently started a job as, what I like to describe as, a drug dealer.  No, you would not find Carlie on a street corner, but rather, in doctors’ offices pitching prescription pharmaceuticals.

Why am I telling you this?  Well Carlie’s fabulous question was…

“what is one thing you wish you knew before you took your first job”

Carlie didn’t answer her own queston, but maybe she was thinking…she wish she knew how to sell drugs better?

As my faithful readers might know, my first job was in Commercial Real Estate.  I suppose what I would have liked to have known before I took the position, well I guess is, that I probably shouldn’t take the job because it would be completely miserable.

So let us know what you wish you knew ONEin3ers and hopefully your answer is better than mine!!

Also, check back in for tomorrows Hump Day Job Day/ Volunteer Vednesday!!!!

Tell Me Tuesday…How Connected Do You Feel to Boston

Hello my lovely ONEin3ers.  In case you didn’t know, it is Tuesday once again.  To mix it up a little we are going to do our Tell Me Tuesday poll style this week.

Devin and I both really love Boston—Devin so much he has never left (unless you count a four year stint in Cambridge as leaving).

As most of you know, I am less of a veteran, but still feel that Boston is my home.  However, we are pretty boring people…for example, I refused to leave my apartment this weekend because of the cold with the exception of a short trip to the new Going Bananas Store on Salem Street to get pineapple pieces and coconut juice (also the first time my credit card got declined).

God only knows what Devin did, I assume it involved about 8 hours of FIFA (if you don’t know what that it is feel free to send me an e-mail, I think we could be friends).

That should be enough said to prove the fact that we need to hear from our wonderful and exciting ONEin3ers because we are huge dorks.

SOOO….how connected do you feel to Boston?  We offer a wide range of options from basically “Devin” to someone who is very confused or being paid a lot to be here.

Also, feel free to back up your vote in the comment section…we love writing!  Lastly, Just a little heads up, Devin and I went on a little field trip to Charlestown and later this week we are going to tell you all about it, so stad tuned!
