What is a CV?

To begin with, when we talk about CV we refer to the term Curriculum Vitae. It can be literally translated as course of life. It is a summary of your career history that is often the first phase in getting yourself noticed by potential employers. A recruiter will typically take just five to seven seconds to read your CV, so that it must say hire me! Here are some pieces of useful advice: be impeccable with your spelling and grammar, make sure your CV is both digital and print-out, focus on using facts to describe what you do, be selective, use positive active verbs...

On the contrary, there is a difficult question. Is one career enough nowadays? Actually, I have no idea, but I think that it would be better in the future. Getting a career it is a difficult task, so two careers must be even harder. It is a good option if you want to learn new skills and this will bring us more employment opportunities.

All in all, I think that we should do our CV the best as possible because it reflects all our professional life and our future job depends on how attractive it would be. Personally, I reckon that just one career is enough to be able to get a good job. As well, we don’t have to forget the importance of having a good level of a foreign language.

Staying alive...forty years later!

For a start, I am going to talk about Bee Gees. Bee Gees was an English boy band which was formed in Australia in 1958 by the bothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb. The trio was especially successful for the album Saturday Night Fever, called the same as the film. This album was extremely famous. As well, the band was one of the most popular for fifty years, selling more than 120 millions of copies. The group retired after the death of two members. In 2012 with the death of Robin and the death of Maurice in 2003.

Some of them are To Love Somebody, Staying Alive, Night Fever, Tragedy, How deep is your love… Music stars like John Legend, Ed Sheeran, Andra Day, Celine Dion and other pop, R&B, rock and country played homage to the Bee Gees and the group’s blockbuster 1977 soundtrack album Saturday Night Fever in an all-star Grammy Awards. Actually, Staying Alive spent 24 weeks atop the Billboard sales chart in 1977-78.

In my opinion, I think that the Bee Gees was an iconic band who defined a generation. What’s more, the song Saturday Night Fever soundtrack is an emblem of 1970s pop culture. In just a word, DISCO STILL LIVES.

Papparazzi, a fair job?

To begin with, paparazzo is a freelance photographer who takes candid pictures of celebrities for publication. Etymologically, this word comes from Italian and its plural form is paparazzi. Experts have described the behaviour of paparazzi as synonymous with stalking. Some public figures and celebrities have expressed concern at the extent to which paparazzi go to invade their personal space, like the model Bella Hadid who flipped the bird to them while walking in New York City.

One the one hand, paparazzo is thought to be a real pain in the neck. They are always taking photos of famous without their permission. If one of them took me a photo and I didn’t know it, I would be so angry, because I think nobody has the right to sell your photos to win some money. On the contrary, working as paparazzi has to be a difficult task, because you have to know all about famous, like where they go, what they like doing… and even invade their lifestyle. The most important task is taking photos discreetly and spending time among a lot of people not standing out.

On the other hand, Oprah Winfrey is an American TV presenter and actress. According to Forbes, she is the wealthiest woman in the 20th century. One of her most famous TV shows is Oprah Winfrey Show, which is seen by millions of people. I saw her the first time in a KUWTK episode, in which she had to interview all the Kardashian family. Later, I saw her in The Butler, a film by Lee Daniels, in which she and Forest Whitaker starred in. Thanks to a photograph, which was taken by a paparazzo, we know that she has six toes.

In my opinion, I think that working like paparazzi is a normal job, but they have to respect people’s privacy, but without them we couldn’t read gossip magazines and it would be such a pity.
