2 poems for the homeless and less fortunate

POEMS FOR THE HOMELESSI was in central London some time ago, and I couldn’t help but feel sorry for those who are homeless on our streets.

We live in difficult times, and it’s always good to remember those less fortunate than ourselves.

On my journey home, I wrote the following two poems for the homeless:

I hope you like them both.

6 top job interview questions to help you prepare

Job interview QuestionsWhen you’re finally leaving full-time education, your first job interview can be a daunting prospect. Dealing with job interview questions can be tricky if you haven’t done some preparatory work beforehand.

I’ve recorded one of my early experiences in the form of a poem, which I’ve included here.

The key takeaway message is ‘be prepared’.

Interview Mindset:

In order to be prepared, you need to understand the hiring manager’s interview mindset.

As a former hiring manager, I can tell you that, when you’re being interviewed, hiring managers have three questions in their heads: –

  1. Can you do the job? That is, do you have the skills required?
  2. Will you do the job? That is, do you have the motivation to do the job well?
  3. Will you fit in? That is, will you get along well with other team members?

Put concisely, they’re considering your SKILLS, MOTIVATION & FIT.

Your mindset in an interview should be, “How do I reassure them that I’m the answer to their prayers because I have exactly what they need?

Job Interview Questions:

The hiring manager will seek to answer the aforementioned three questions, by asking you a series of questions, and they’re all predictable.

Here are the top 6 job interview questions that are most commonly asked by hiring managers: –

  1. Can you tell me a little bit about yourself?
  2. Why are you interested in this position?
  3. What are your strengths and weaknesses?
  4. Can you give an example of a time when you overcame a challenge?
  5. Where do you see yourself in five years?
  6. What do you know about this company/organization?

Your responses to these questions will determine whether you’re successful or not.

So, before you go for an interview, make sure you’re well-prepared. Prepare concise responses to these questions and don’t waffle. Think of it as having a quiver full of arrows ready to hit every target put before you.

And remember also, for every skill you claim to have, be prepared to provide an example of where you’ve used that skill with at least some degree of success.

REMEMBER: Prepare well and you’ll present well. Present well and you’ll give yourself the best chance of success.

As a hiring manager, I have always been impressed by candidates who are well-prepared.

Poem about a job interview:

Anyway, without further ado, here’s today’s poem. It describes how I got it wrong by not being prepared. That said, I only made the mistake once.

Poem about character

Poem about CHARACTERIf you’re looking for an original poem about character then you’ve come to the right place, dear reader. In fact today, I can offer you two closely related poems.

Occasionally, I think reflecting on the people we are and how others may see us can be useful. A little introspection helps with our self-awareness, I think. So, I’ve been doing a little bit of self-analysis recently out of which came these two poems.

The first one, called Character, reflects how I’d like to be judged.

The second poem, called Just Some Guy, reflects how I see myself.

Now don’t assume I’m putting myself down in any way because I’m not. I’m very confident in my own ability and I know how to add value to the lives of others. However, equally, I know that we’re all just people and we shouldn’t assume that we are in some way better than others.

Everyone has their place in this world and their own contribution to make. And everyone contributing to the lives of others deserves to be treated with respect.

Anyway, I thought I’d share these poems with you dear reader and you can decide on their merits, or otherwise.

If they do appeal to you, please feel free to share them.

A poem about the joys of marriage

MarriageOnce again, I’ve been trying to write poetry. On this occasion, I’ve been exploring the idea of marriage. A subject to which most of us are drawn at some point in our lives.

At this point, it might be worth quoting the great Scottish comedian, Billy Connolly, “Marriage is a wonderful invention. Then again, so is a bicycle repair kit.”

Anyway, I hope my latest poetic offering appeals to you. And if my words do resonate with you, then please feel free to share this poem with your friends or on Pinterest.

Thank you for your support, dear reader. It’s truly appreciated.

State of the Nation

State of the Nation I like poetry and I like trying to write poetry.

Yes, I’ve got a long way to go before I’ll get anywhere near some of the great poets, of course. However, we’ve all got to start somewhere.

Today, as I sat thinking about the state of my own nation, I wrote this poem. On reflection, it probably reflects the state of many nations.

Anyway, if my words resonate with you, then please feel free to share this poem.

Thank you for your support, dear reader. It’s truly appreciated.

Graduation Poem: An alternative perspective

Graduation PoemIf you’ve landed on this page, dear reader, you might just be looking for a graduation poem.

I’ve written one for you, but perhaps not one you might expect.

Most graduation poems are a celebration of the moment, and there’s nothing wrong with that approach. It’s the culmination of years of hard work, after all.

However, in the modern age, it seems that many young people look back and wonder whether the burden of student debt was worth it, in terms of the potential return on the money and time invested.

You can decide on the merits or otherwise of that argument, of course, but I thought it might be interesting to offer an alternative perspective. One that might be considered more realistic, possibly?

If you like it, feel free to share it on social media.

Graduation Poem:

Graduation PoemI received a fine certificate

Wore gown and mortar board

Proud parents taking photographs

For memories, they will hoard

The Rector warmly greeted us

He spoke of futures bright

He said well all get well-paid jobs

Well, at least he said, some might

A degree once had real value

But it doesnt anymore

When everybodys got one

Employers know the score

Three years of diligent study

Now tinged with some regret

For two hours in the limelight

Was it worth incurring debt?
