First of all..yes, I know. The featured banner looks a little bit creepy. I swear I did my best, but as you can see my graphic skills are not that good. And that, is one thing you already know about me 🙂
Second, this will probably be the only page of the website where with a playful tone and where there won’t be that serious vibe about work and jobs that I have in most of my articles.
But my humor can be pretty bad sometimes, so maybe it’s a good thing that.
Anyway, reading my articles you might have wondered who am I, how old I am, and so on!
And maybe also how do I have such a wise knowledge in the work industry. Answering that question, well I have to admit that a good part of the knowledge I put in my articles comes from books and searching on google before writing them. But not just that! And soon you will find out why.
So, who Am I?
My name is Jake, I live in Portugal and I am a 36-year-old partner at a “job finding” agency. I enjoy football, theatre and .. working. (I know, that’s unusual). Lately I also discovered that I love to write and this is why I opened this blog.
In my life I started working at a very young age – 14 – in my family’s farm. Since then I always worked and did many jobs, I tried to count them and it’s around 20. Very “humble” jobs like cleaning dishes in a restaurant or working as receptionist in a hostel, to being the co-founder of an agency, the job that I currently do.
Thanks for passing by and reading something about me. And if you’d like to know more about me, more info to come after the image.
