Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 7: Episode 30 | Work-life Balance is NOT About Hours

So, the common myth about work-life balance in under-performers is about time. So many people who allow activities to manage them believe that it’s impossible to achieve a balance.

However, the goal is not about hours, but it’s about the quality. It’s about self-awareness and assessing yourself on a weekly basis in the different categories of your life.

In today’s podcast, we’re going to dive into time, the mismanagement of time management, and coming up with solutions.

Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 7: Episode 29 | A Job Interview

So, from an interviewee’s perspective, you will know if the employer is interested or not. If an employer says, “so tell me a little bit about yourself,” your goal is to show out (meaning impress them). At the same time, make sure everything you tell them about you is relatable to what they’re looking for.

Now, there are times that interviewers are condescending, and even if they do offer you the job, be very careful in choosing it because no one wants to work for someone who minimizes what they’ve accomplished.

In this episode, we’re going to dissect an interview between two people, see what the girl did right, wrong, and the tone of the interviewer. Lots to cover!

Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 7: Episode 28 | How to Apply for A Job

First and foremost, a big shout out to Tony, a follower of my website who messaged me via WhatsApp, telling me how appreciative he was about how much I helped him in my blog “How to Write a Letter.”

So, what did this entail? Well, it comes down to doing things through the perspective of others rather than yourself. When it comes to job interviews, we mostly approach the situation by saying “me, me, and me.” But in today’s podcast, I’m going to teach you how you can write in a way that speaks to the core and values of a company and it’s not about YOU YOU YOU.

Get ready, pen and paper, because I’ma GET YOU SOME JOBS (bad grammar, I know. Don’t judge.)
