On January 22, 2017 at Lower Macungie Community Center gym two Lower Macungie Youth Association (LMYA) were playing against each other. They were playing basketball. No team was getting demolished.
I could see her face trying not to laugh at my accent, I never felt so embarrassed in my whole life, but at least she did not ignore me, she replied with a smile and said “yes”. Well what a great start to my day, as I walked into the building I saw a seemingly endless line to nowhere, but as I got in line a person tapped my shoulder. I immediately turned around thinking it was the girl again, however, it was just another student, he was a tall guy, however, he did not look like he played sports, he was really scrawny, and with a surprised look at his
I had put an application in at Publix, I went back a couple days later sat in my car for a little bit and decided I was going in there and ask to speak to the store manager. I went in asked for the store manager and he promptly came out. I immediately stuck my hand out and gave him a firm handshake and introduced myself and started spilling out my experience while working at Winn Dixie for the past 6 years in NC. He asked me my name and then told me he would pull my application. Before I could reach my house, he called me to set up an interview for the next day. I went to the interview and felt very comfortable with all the question he had asked me because Ihad been doing the same type of work for Winn Dixie, and every question he asked me
Early last summer, I was on my way to becoming a high school senior. This was one of the most exciting transitions of my high school career. My best friend Modolyne and I always told ourselves senior year must be epic, I mean it’s our last year, right? So, this meant we were participating in all school activities - which wasn’t free. My senior year spending was well over a thousand dollars. Together, we decided to apply to a local Chick-fil-A in hopes of getting a job. I felt anxious towards applying, I’ve never been on a register before and I feared being rejected. Days past after applying and I grew sad. The self-fulfilling prophecy of me not landing the job was slowly echoing in my mind day after day. I woke up one gloomy morning, telling myself to forget about
At the beginning of this school year, I began to realize something. I realized that my high school years were coming to an end. This was an eye opener for me. I didn't know what to expect of my last year nor what I wanted to do after high school. I then began looking for a job. So I applied to Chick-fil-a. I waited patiently several weeks for a call, but received no call whatsoever. I patiently waited for a new opportunity to come along. Until finally, I was given an opportunity at an electrical shop. On the first day of work I was introduced to the staff and learned the procedures of what needed to be done. My job now was to maintain the shop clean and to keep all materials organized as well as other tasks that helped me grow with my skills.
I have not had very much experience as an employee during my youth. My first time doing real world work was the day that I volunteered at my father’s office at the New York City Department of the Aging for two hours. It was apparently a day off from work because no one other than him, myself, and his supervisor were there, but I helped my father organize and file some papers. After my brief stint as a volunteer, my first, and only, actual job I was paid for was over this summer at the Eileen Abraham Insurance Agency. I got the job through a program called the Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP). This program helped young adults, like myself, get summer jobs around the city in various different fields. I specifically chose the Eileen
oals, I thought to myself as I sprinted down the field, ball in my net. The scorching sun beat down on my back, as if trying to slow me down as I passed defender after defender, trying to score that next goal.
The sun was in the sky and it seemed to be the middle of the day. How could this happen? I checked my phone to see what it said. “4:00 p.m., November 9th,” I gasped in disbelief. This probably meant that I had my job back again! I happily walked through the crowds to my office, but I noticed that I was getting a lot of dirty looks. When I entered the office I was taken aback. Instead of being filled with mainly men, the office was made up of mostly women. A stern looking woman walked up to me. “You must be Evan,” she declared “Congratulations on your new job, we don’t really get a lot of good men that apply if you know what I mean.” As she led me through the lobby I heard many remarks “Hey sweet face,” snared a woman to my left. I heard roaring laughter arise from everyone. Suddenly, I felt extremely uncomfortable. “Is this what it’s always been like for women?’ I asked myself as I made my way up the stairs. I still heard muffled whispers from downstairs “He probably just got hired for his pretty face, men don’t have talent.” I overheard. All of the sudden, I didn’t want to be there anymore. Why would I want to work somewhere where I was criticized because of my
Even the library was not open, so my mom suggested that I get a job. I decided to send my resume and fill out applications to the stores and restaurants of Fort McMurray. The first time I got an interview was in McDonalds and at first, it was an intimidating task to accomplish, especially when I have never experienced this before, but I thought that I had done a decent job on my interview. Unfortunately, I did not get the call. I assumed that I did not get the job. Then, I got an interview in Sobeys and this time, I used the knowledge from my last interview and applied it to this interview. I felt a bit more confident in this interview but again, they did not notify me about the job. After the second time, I started to doubt that I would be able to get a job for the summer. I was worried that no one would hire me. Finally, I got a call from Tim Horton’s for an interview. I was sure I would get the job. The manager informed me about the job. After the interview, they called me for training. I learned the basics about serving meals to the consumers. When I finished my training, they hired
I entered your store this evening to rent a Redbox movie at around 7:30pm. When I walked into the store, I saw a young female slouched over on the customer's side of the counter eating what appeared to be her dinner. I found this to be somewhat unprofessional and made me feel uncomfortable. I continued to mind my own business and looked for a movie at the Redbox kiosk. I then heard a female talking amongst her other coworkers and very loudly say "suck my dick" and make other comments that were very inappropriate to her coworkers. I turned around to look at the workers to make sure I was hearing this correctly. I was in disbelief that this behavior would occur in a restaurant full of customers. Upon exit of the restaurant the young female and
Mac was just a confused, anxious, and desperate man after their crash. I feel bad that he had to endure such a harsh survival on the raft and not even live to see the end of it. Although this is true, I, like Louie, would have been disappointed that he had eaten the only food supply after the crash of their plane. If I was in Mac’s position, I’m not sure if I would have eaten all the chocolate, but I would have definitely felt the need to do something. When Louie decides it is a good idea to pet a shark, the sharks attack the raft. Louie’s life is saved by Mac when he defends the sharks away with a paddle. This shows bravery and that Mac was not a coward like Louie had deemed him when he ate the food. Mac risked Louie and Phil’s lives
It started with a video game. My older brother had decided to pass on his glorious GameCube to a five-year-old me, and needless to say, I was ecstatic. Aiding me in my lack of video game skills, he proceeded to teach me how to play Sonic Adventure Battle 2, an old SEGA game that still remains my favorite to this day. The more we played it, the more I found that I loved Sonic The Hedgehog just as much as my brother did. When he realized this fact, he decided to show me the stories he wrote in his spare time during class. Stories upon stories of Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Shadow, even some original characters thrown in there, like his main character, Double. I had been so blown away with the stories and writing that I begged him for us to act
For my informational interview I interviewed a game designer. I selected this because I wanted to explore more into the field so I can decide what type of career I want to have. On the interview I learned a lot of different things such as the skills you need to succeed in this field, all the different job positions, and the software they use. The thing that surprised me was he has a remote office and he can take his work anywhere to get his job done. He told me some ideas that can help me throughout on trying to become a game designer.
I met with Mr. Regime who is the owner of Runway Clothing located in Baltimore City. I met with him at the Starbucks located on Route 40 in Catonsville, MD. In order to prepare for this interview I originally had only 10 questions that I wanted to ask by the end of the interview I had asked 12 questions because I became so intrigued with the information that he was giving me. I’m a business major therefore; all of this information was beneficial. I also brought my laptop to record my notes and money to buy hot chocolate and a croissant. I figured since was conducting an interview at a coffee shop it would be weird to not order anything. Unfortunately I did not dress professionally only casually. At the time I did not think that professional dress was necessary but if I were to choose one thing that I could have done better than it would be to dress professionally. Before, during and after the interview I was focused on completing the task at hand but I will admit that I was a little excited because I’ve heard that Mr. Regime’s business had a lot of success in the past.
When I turned sixteen, I got my first job at the bookstore across the road from our local Starbucks. The first couple weeks were difficult
