so im still not over it. I can’t get myself to do anything when there is so much to do. Wanna know what i spent my morning on?¬† a new banner for my blog…. OMG MO wake up !

But honestly im gonna need some changes around here, i assume some family and friends will wanna follow my new Swedish life so i’ll have to write in english & in french…and who knows one day pa svenska¬†… (in my dreams).¬†¬†

to totally change subject, here’s a pic from my new dress…. i love it love it love it ūüôā¬†Pour changer totalement de sujet, ma nouvelle robe que j’aiiiime :


Ok, im not quite sure why but i I thought some of you  might interrested in the kind of questions they asked at the interview (i know i always like to check some questions before interviews) so here is a little summury of the 1h interview i got :

1) I had to introduce myself and my studies/ se présenter et expliquer son cursus :  

Then they (they were 2) just talked about the job and asked if i had questions…. ūüôā Puis ils ont parl√© du poste en lui m√™me.

  • why i choose this bachelor, this master ? ( in english)¬† Pourquoi cette licence, pourquoi ce master ? (en anglais)

2) then (in french) they asked a bunch of questions about my work experience / puis, en français, des questions sur mon experience pro :

  • which experience was the best and why? Quelle fut ma meilleure experience?¬†
  • which on was the worst? why? Quelle fut ma pire experience? Pourquoi?
  • How did i react to the¬†conflict situation? how would i react to it now, being more mature? Comment j’ai r√©agit √† une situation conflictuelle? Comment je r√©agirais maintenant avec l’experience?
  • im a a fast learner? Do i learn by doing? Est ce que j’apprends vite? Sur le tas?
  • do i have experience in organizing events?¬†How? Est ce que j’ai d√©j√† organiser des √©v√™nements? Lesquels?
  • Did i work w/ a team? How did i handle it? Est ce que j’ai travaill√© en equipe? Comment?
  • what would i bring to the job? Why me? Quelle est ma valeur ajout√©e pour le poste?
  • Do i have other jobs offer?¬†Est ce que j’ai d’autres offres ?

Then just talked about the job and asked if i had any questions…¬† YES : when can i start? ūüôā

Nice day, Nice mood and…learning new words

the day started early today cause I had my interview at the Engineer school in Paris at 10am. took me a while to get ready, I couldn’t find my shoes ! Dad drove me on his motorcycle but there was so much traffic it still took us 1h to get there ! Thank God we were on time, I hate being late especially at a job interview, then¬†it’s hard to¬†say being on time is one of your qualities¬†when you just arrived late !

Somehow I wasn’t sooo stressed. well at least I thought I wasn’t but once I got in his office I felt a little less confident. especially when he asked me about Benchmarking… so I learnt a new word today..word that I was apparently supposed to know..oupsy. so for those we care, Wikipedia says “Benchmarking in simplistic terms is the process where you compare your process with that of a better process and try to improve the standard of the process you follow to improve quality of the system, product, services etc.”¬† ūüôā¬†

I started to do my little speech about exchanges programs, how I wanna work¬†at the international office and stuff …. and then he said what they really¬†need is someone to do some benchkating to find a better way to promote their Master worldwide…. am I interrested? Hell yeah. I’ll need to work extra hard in Marketing class this year, the job is something I have never done, it’s seems to be a LOT to do and it’s gonna be a lot of pressure but also …really interresting and different from what I did so far !

I told him I was still waiting for Cergy’s answer and he was really surprised¬†we had to pass interviews to get in the second year of our own master, but I also told him I got accepted at La Sorbonne Panth√©on and he seems to like their schedule more. He said he is not the one to decide about the “money part” anyway so they’ll recontact me…but before I left he¬†showed me where I would work and asked when I could start…I guess that’s¬† good signs… damn that would be so nice to not have to worry the whole summer about finding a job…¬†

after that I  walked around for a while before finding the subway, met äskling at St Lazare, we had lunch by the Eiffel Tower, then had Häagen Dazs ice cream on the Champs Elysée ! the weather was perfect it was really really nice.. but damn my shoes killed my feet !
