COLOR PALETTE MASTERPOST by forbiddenforest

So today I felt like sharing some useful websites that provide pre-made color palettes (left side), as well as sites that allow you to create custom ones (right side). They can be used for graphic design, themes, art, interior design, or just something pretty to look at.

I hope you find this useful (and please like or reblog if you did)! Enjoy :)

Dear internet,

Please give me all the advice you have on writing cover letters. Like, the closer you can get to literally just writing a cover letter for me, the better. Ok bye.

This is how I did the one for my librarian position.  I hope it helps.

Dear Person Hiring for this Job,

I am writing to ask you to consider me for X position.  This is a paragraph about why I want to do X position in general.  It includes at least one personal detail and at least one job skill I consider a particular strength.  It argues that I am passionate about this career.  It is not long.

I have had the opportunity to gain experience in this job by - paragraph about my work or study experience.  It should go from most recent experience back.  Include some details about your responsibilities/achievements in your most recent or most important positions.  If you have mostly study experience, give more detail about what exactly you studied.  If you shadowed people, mention that.  If your work experience is largely unrelated, try to shoehorn some of it in (e.g. I gained experience working with people by).  You can supplement with relevant hobbies.  (But if you do have recent, relevant work experience, you should largely be detailing that.  Only embroider the other stuff if you need to flesh it out.)  This should be the longest paragraph.

I hope you will consider allowing me to do X thing at your company.  This is a few sentences about why I want to work at your company in particular and what I think I could bring.  Try to mention at least one detail from the company website, so they know you visited it.  This is a short paragraph that parallels the first one.

Thank you very much for your time and attention.

Sincerely,

Person You Would Be a Fool Not to At Least Interview

oh my god thank you this is relevant to current interests

Two other points, to challenge what’s being said above a little:

1) Remember that the person reading this cover letter wants to know how you can contribute to the company. Not how excited you are about the position: it’s all about what they gain. Try framing the whole thing in that sense — “You would gain my X awesome skill that would help you Y with your mission.” “Here’s why I’m awesome and a great fit for making your company go better.”

2) At the end, ask for the interview. “I am available at PHONE NUMBER at your convenience. I look forward to speaking with you about this great opportunity soon.” Maybe even say you’ll be following up at a specific time and date. Ask for the job. People respond to that, and it’s a good way to fake confidence until you make it. Ask for the job.

Okay, three points. People reading cover letters get SO BORED going through them. Think about starting off with a story that relates to why you’re interested in the job, or that demonstrates a skill or a strong interest that would make you a good candidate. Be memorable — people remember stories, even (maybe especially) very little ones.

Glue Chart by Unknown (if you made this, let us know!)
Just a simple, but terribly useful, tutorial this Thursday.  Over the years, I have amassed so many different types of glue, solely to use on costumes and props.  However, most of the time, I just keep trying different glues until I find one that works.  But with this handy dandy little chart, I don’t have to guess any more!  No more reading labels of 10 different kinds of glue, no more fingers stuck instead of objects, no more pray that your prop won’t fall apart because you used the wrong glue.

Don’t forget This to That for gluing together completely different types of materials!

YOU CAN GET THEM REPAIRED THOUGH. There’s a place in NYC called Denim Therapy; I’ve had my favorite jeans fixed by them, where it was almost as big a hole as this one. They use some kind of really tough lattice-type cotton and so far (it’s been 6 months) the jeans are still perfect.
You just mail them in with a note explaining what you want fixed and they mail them back in like two weeks. It was like $15 too - SO WORTH IT since jeans are a bitch and a half to shop for.

I’ve been thinking about this post recently since my two favorite pairs of jeans aren’t holding up so well. ;~; Have to go here while they can still be repaired.

Theme [#38] — Tetsuya - 黒子 テツヤ by Fukuo

Live preview and codes: HERE

A theme inspired by Kuroko no Basuke, ah I really like this anime; If you want to know, this theme is actually made for psyco-pass theme but I’ve decided to change it. This theme has a lot of options—not too much yet confusing if you can’t handle the provided options I gave to you. This theme has two options for links: pop up links or sliding menu barPlease be sure to check only options. And lastly, if you scroll down, the content will be showing the animation! You can turn this option off if you don’t like it!

Please, Like or Reblog if you want/or plan to use this theme. Thank you very much!
