    Hello,

    When I was young I dreamed of being an astronaut or a scientist. As time went by, this desire remained so I studied clinical laboratory as a technical career but never exercised it. Later, I felt the need to study business administration as I worked as an administrative assistant.

    I definitely believe that social networks are an important tool for job search in these times since it allows you to reach a greater number of potential employers. However, the authenticity and veracity of the social pages in which we interact looking for work must be verified.

    In my opinion, the phrase “live to work” is related to people who are addicted to work, the so-called “workaholic”, who always live full of work and even bring work home …
    The phrase “work to live” means that work is a means to the comfort and quality of life that we all wish to have.

    Grettings,

    Elena

    When I was younger I wanted to study psychology and wanted to work with kids. When I finished high school I decided to follow my path and I studied Special Education because you get to learn about behavior plus you get to work with kids. I truly believe that social media websites are important when the HR team is hunting for for appropriate people with the right qualifications. Although these kind of websites need to have a filter to verify that the information provided is correct and accurate.
    The difference between the phrases “live to work” and “work to live” is that the first one is when a person does not think on anything else besides work or the well known workaholic person. The second one means when people enjoy their work and allows themselves to enjoy other activities.

    Kind regards,
    Flor

    Hello everybody,
    1. When I was a child I really liked animals, and I thought about studying veterinary medicine or medicine.
    Today I still find works beautiful, but over time I realized that although I liked them as an idea, I didn’t like them as a future for me.
    2. I consider that the platforms that one uses with the area of ​​their work depend a lot. In my case, the platforms to which I must upload my portfolio and my study certificates are DevianArt, Behance, among others. Since my career is about art and illustration. But I think yes, they are totally necessary to make you known to other companies, in any case I think it will always depend on the career you have studied and what you are looking for in your field of work.
    3. I think those expressions are when you feel that your life is working and not enjoying. Personally, I do not agree with any. I feel like my work is my life.

    Have a good day,

    Noelia.

    I wanted to be a lawyer, but I change over time, now I’m a teacher and I like teaching.

    Yes, because you can show more job offers or even help you find the job according to the profile you are interested in.

    The first is that life depends on work.

    The second is that work is part of life.

    I consider that work can be a fun that also generates income with which you can pay for basic needs, but you can also give yourself the likes that one wants.
