As we grow up, we spend more and more time in a certain place…can you guess what it is? If you guessed work, then you guessed right. Because we spend so much time at our places of employment, whether we work from home or in an office, it is so important that we devote our work to the Lord. Our job is one of the ways that He provides for us and it is also a way to show you have a generous heart. God grows our character and our faith as we rely on him for strength to do our job. Here are 3 prayers to lift up to the Lord about your work.

  1. Thank the Lord that you can do all things through Him who strengthens you (Philippians 4:13).
  2. Ask God to help you be content in life and not desire money and possessions and not to want what others have, and ask Him to give you the desire to work hard for what you earn. (1 Thessalonians 41:11-12)
  3. Pray that you will be faithful and wise with your work responsibilities, whether they are big or small. Pray that God would help you be honest, even when it is hard to be. (Luke 16:10-13)

Lastly, pray that God would use you where you work to help show people His love! God has provided you the job that you have for a purpose and for a reason!

XOXO, Chels

5 Things to Never Do in an Interview

No matter what stage life you are in, whether you are in high school, college or beyond, you are going to face a few job interviews in your day. It is so important to know what employers are looking for, both positive and negative, when they interview people. Here are a few “red flags” that employers look for in interviews so that you can avoid them and get the job you want!

  1. Badmouthing your past employers: Even if you had a bad experience with a past employer, it is a bad idea to badmouth them or complain about them during an interview. You don’t want te people interviewing you thinking that if you were to leave their workplace that you would badmouth them too.tips-to-not-fail-in-a-job-interview
  2. Your attire isn’t interview-appropriate: Not all interviews require a pantsuit or formal business attire, but it is always a good idea to dress as professionally as you can. You can easily go to a thrift store or Target for affordable interview attire. A lot of employers will immediately put your resume in the “no” pile if you do not dress for success.
  3. You’re tardy: Accidents happen, and being late isn’t always 100% our fault. But showing up late to an interview without a warning or explanation gives off a bad vibe. It may make your potential employer think that you don’t care about the interview and that if you worked for them, you would be late to work.
  4. Your nerves take over: It is normal to be nervous during a job interview! But, it is a good idea to try and handle your nervousness and keep your nervous ticks (like talking with your hands or talking too fast) in control so they don’t overtake the interview.

Hopefully these tips help you land your dream job by killin’ the interview!

For those of you jumping into a new internship, it can be pretty nerve-racking, especially if you’re new to the interning world. You may not know the rules and guidelines to follow, like how to act, what to wear, etc. I came up with some pointers that will help you be successful when you begin your new internship!Chelsea Crockett - Internship Advice

  • Of course, good first impressions are important. But even more importantly is keeping that first impression throughout your entire internship! Throughout the entire time, keep offering your help and treating everyone in the office with respect.
  • Stand out! Reach out to your coworkers and make yourself memorable. If you have ideas of your own, speak your mind when the time is appropriate!
  • Pay attention to details. If someone is teaching you how to do something, take notes! Remember the little things people mention to you. You’ll not only gain experience but it’ll help you in the long run!
  • Lastly, make sure you keep in touch with people at your internship, especially those with connections. If you don’t get offered a job, there’s always a chance you could get referred to another company. Email those who got you the internship even after it’s over, and something may work in your favor!

Whether you’re in the middle of your internship or about to begin one, I hope these pointers help you out!

What You Do Matters, So Just Do You

Do you ever feel like you are missing out? That other people are doing all of these cool things, traveling places, being adventurous, doing big things, and you are just…

Do you ever feel like you are missing out? That other people are doing all of these cool things, traveling places, being adventurous, doing big things, and you are just living a normal life? That, my friend, is one of the worst feelings.

Social media makes it so easy for us to compare our lives to other people’s, and I think that is one of the worst things about it. Yes, it is fun to be able to see how other people’s lives differ from ours and it gives us a look into how other people live, but it becomes unhealthy when we start to become unhappy with our own lives because we think other people have it so much better. Why cant I travel like her? Why haven’t I gotten a cool job like othershers? She gets to do so many fun things and has her life together. Why cant I be like that? Those thoughts will bring you down. I have started to realize something. It is that it doesn’t matter with other people are doing, it matters what YOU are doing. You are an amazing person who has done amazing things, and the amazing things that you have done/are doing are different than the amazing things that other people are doing, but that doesn’t make them any less amazing! So what if someone you know got a super cool internship and you’ve never had one before. Don’t become jealous, be happy that she got an amazing opportunity and know that in your future you can have something just as cool! Just because it hasn’t happened yet doesn’t mean it wont. The cool things people are doing now can happen to you, too! Just give it time and enjoy what is happening in your life here and now.

Remember, it doesn’t matter what other people are doing, it matters what YOU are doing. Make the most of the time you are given. Do things that matter. Make a difference. Live life!

XOXO, Chels

How to Act in an Interview 101

As teenagers, there are many things we have to start paying for. Whether it be a car, gas, college, or simply a new pair of shoes you’ve been wanting, we have to find jobs to support our needs… or wants :). Job interviews and having the spotlight on you might not be your cup of tea, so I’m here to give you some advice on how to kill it anyway!

  • Be confident. You have just as much of a shot as anyone else. Just be focused and know that confidence is key! You have to believe in yourself in order to have success.Chelsea Crockett - Interview Tips
  • Be professional. Some people think it’s overrated to make eye contact, shake hands, be polite, arrive on time, dress appropriately, etc. It’s not! A lot of bosses who are in charge of hiring employees will look for these things. It shows you’re not only personable but confident, too.
  • Be honest. If you don’t have experience, don’t say that you do! If you can only work certain days, tell them! Don’t sugarcoat anything then end up in a jam when you’re hired. This being said, don’t hesitate to talk yourself up by addressing your good qualities!
  • Be prepared. A lot of job interviews ask the same questions: “Do you have experience?” “Why are you good for this job?” “What are your positive qualities?” Most places will require a resume usually prior to the interview as well.

I hope this helped you feel a little more prepared for any upcoming interviews you may have!

Love, Chels

5 Things You Should Never Wear to Work in the Summer

Where I live the temperature has been in the upper nineties, and even the 100’s these past few weeks. Needless to say, we are all sweating our brains out! If you work in an office or a professional setting it can be hard to dress for work when you know that you have to be professional all whilst trying not to die of heat stroke. There are a few things you should avoid wearing to work in the summer, even though it may be tempting! But, no matter enticing it may be to wear them, you want to stay appropriate and professional. Here are 5 things you should never wear to work in the summer.

 

1. STRAPLESS ANYTHING

Showing your shoulders in a work setting just isn’t professional, no matter how cute that strapless dress or tank top is. Layer a blazer over it to make it more work appropriate. Plus, adding a blazer will jazz up your outfit!

2. FLIP FLOPS

Flip flops are best saved for the beach or the pool, not for work! Yes, they may have rhinestones on the straps, but that doesn’t make them any more work appropriate. Opt for a pair of flats instead!

3. SHORT SKIRTS/DRESSES

If you cannot bend down without fear of flashing your co-workers, then your dress or skirt is too short! Keep it classy. I know you want to show off your killer legs, but save that for a night out with your friends!

4. SHEER CLOTHING364e3120ffcf73dad611fcdfdffc81ca

Yes, sheer fabrics allow your skin to breathe and keep your body cool in the hot weather, but they are not work appropriate. If you can see bra straps or underwear through your clothes, it should be a no-go!

5. OVERSIZED CLOTHES

Oversized clothes are all the rage right now, but they are not work wear! You want to look clean cut and classy, not frumpy. Save your comfy oversized ensembles for outings with friends or family!

 

What do YOU think is a clothing item you should never wear to work in the summer? I want your input!

XOXO, Chels

Teenagers and young adults alike are glued to their phones.  It’s rare to go to dinner or watch a movie without one person checking Twitter or updating their Facebook status.  While social media is fun, it can also be dangerous.  Monitoring yourself and others can save you from trouble in the future.  Take caution when using social media!Chelsea Crockett- caution on social media

Did you know that what you post on social media could keep you from getting a job or getting into college?  That’s right!  College admissions and employers now check a variety of social media accounts including Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook in order to see what their possible student or employee is posting.  If you are underage and post pictures with alcohol in them, you get could turned down.  Likewise, if you are always using profanity or making fun of someone, that can be a major red flag.  Many don’t realize that what you post on different social media accounts is very important.  It can actually determine what happens in your future!

Next time you are about to post a picture, status, tweet, etc., make sure it is something that you would be okay with your grandparents seeing!  This could save you from a world of trouble!

Be safe!
