The ups and downs of working from home

FreedoChange + responsibilitym of choice of working hours was one of the most important factors in my decision to be self employed. I’m a night owl and always hated to get up early for work. So I immediately started to work at night hours and extended those hours every day until I suddenly noticed the sun was rising, and that it didn’t make sense at all what I was doing. My clients sleep at night and they were working while I was sleeping. So I had to adept my own rhythm to the habits of my clients at least a bit.

Some thoughts about dress code for job interviews.

DresscodeIn my former position as a director of customer services I conducted hundreds of job interviews with any kind of people. One thing I especially remember were the very young candidates who pretended to be business women and men.

The young guys mostly showed up in suits which didn’t fit to their figure at all, often totally unshaped. They tried to look like professionals but they just looked sad and small in their big suits. I can understand they didn’t have money to buy a really fitting and maybe more expensive suit, but I would have preferred them to show up in a more casual outfit, perfectly fitting, clean and tidy with a simple design.
