29 June 2011 - 10:41 am Gross National Happiness

Now, when Uni is finished, I can finally read for my own pleasure. In one of the books I have been reading, I came across the concept of ‘Gross National Happiness’ and decided that I have to share it with those who follow the USE blog. I assume that most of you know what GDP (Gross Domestic Product) is… Continue reading “Gross National Happiness” »

9 May 2011 - 10:19 am AIESEC Sheffield elections: See it, Believe it, Achieve it!

So, the big day came! It was the 25th of March and a new committee of AIESEC Sheffield was elected. It took us five hours of speeches and question and answer sessions, which was nerve wrecking for the candidates, yet very inspiring for AIESEC Sheffield members.

31 March 2011 - 3:30 pm Opportunities after you graduate

Graduation is scary. I have just filled in the form for graduation and it feels so close now…

Personally, I can not decide what to do next and I know that many people are in the same situation. Where? Why? How? What?- these questions keep on buzzing around my head and give me a proper headache. I really hope that you have made a decision about next year. If not, then keep on reading 🙂 Continue reading “Opportunities after you graduate” »

10 December 2010 - 3:26 pm AIESEC Careers Fair

It was a sunny morning on the 17 th of November.  No snow, no ice on the pavements, and I am pretty sure that I heard birds singing (although this might be an exaggeration). Just another autumn morning you would say? Well, if you had been somewhere near the Octagon Centre, you might have had a different idea. Continue reading “AIESEC Careers Fair” »

12 November 2010 - 10:47 am The Art of Sales

I have just come back from the AIESEC conference called STEPS Ahead. From all the amazing sessions there were, I would like to distinguish one in particular- The Art of Sales. The skill of selling something to people, whether it is a material object or your opinion, is the key in everyday life. Essentially, it is the skill of persuasion, communication and people-reading. Therefore, I would like to present you with these main principles of the art of sales, which were discussed: Continue reading “The Art of Sales” »

5 November 2010 - 10:31 am Why do I like the Enterprise Zone?

There is something about the Enterprise Zone. You might disagree with my opinion that it looks its best in early October, since people who walk by (or in) are still relaxed and not worried about upcoming deadlines for their university work, but you have to admit that the building is enticing.

    I am a third year Politics student. I love to spend my spare time travelling, dancing salsa, reading, learning Spanish, and having a great time with my friends.
