Finding the ideal job

My name is Maria Fernanda Hernandez. I’m 21 years old. I’m from Bogota Colombia but I live here since 2006. I’m studying Industrial Engineer at URBE. My parents live in Colombia and I live here with my uncle and my cousin. In my vacation I always go to Colombia to visit my family and friends, I miss all of them but I also have a big family here too, so T love Bogota and Maracaibo too.

I think the life teach you a lot of things about you. Until now I learn to know my strengths and weaknesses


  • Responsable
  • Organize
  • I always do my best
  • I’m a easy learning

  • Shy
  • I’m a serious person
  • Sometimes I forgot things
  • I have a strong opinion and I don’t change it

I love my career, for me is the most important engineer because is the base of all organizations. The Industrial Engineer needs to know about systems, materials, quality, mathematics and others topics. I think is a beautiful career and very interesting too.

My ideal job have to be in the project planning area because is the Industrial area that enjoy the most, also I like to have to go around or work and treat a lot of people . In my ideal job I have to love the organization that I’m working in and have a good boss, also I like that the organization have a lot of benefic for their employees like parties and plays.

My ideal boss is someone that has to be a good leader, responsable and has a nice job method with his employees, also I love that my boss teach me a lot about the working and take my opinion in consideration. A ideal boss need to be like a mentor for me.

Here in Venezuela my career have a lot of field because in all the organization needs an Industrial Engineer but also this career have a lot of competition, for example here at URBE our classmates are the next competition on the work field, for beat that competition you need to be prepare and be a pretty good with you work. I think here in Venezuela have more opportunities that in others countries so I think that the Industrial Engineer need to be prepare for the competition.

I like to work in another country like Canada or France because I like to know about different work cultures and the pay is better, but if I work here it would be nice too. In my case I think I will work here because my cousin offer me a job that I think is a nice job, so in the future I have to work here but if the opportunity came for work in another country I took it.

The URBE Program offers a comprehensive approach, including educational programs, teacher training and technical support for the university district, with the following three goals in mind:

1. Students are empowered to engage in 4Rs behaviors (reduce, reuse, recycle and rot)

2. Students practice 4Rs behaviors in URBE

3. Students apply 4Rs behaviors in everyday life.

How to handle a job interview

VideoJug: The Interview Questions

Hi, remember my job resume? Well I want now show you how to handle a job interview. So I’m going to speak about some interview tips that can help you on the future.

The job interview is a process when one person or the company are evaluated one potential employee. And if you want the job you need to be preparing for different things.

The most important things are that you must be relaxed, don’t stress for the interview and practice a lot with a friend. You need to dress professionally .In the interview you need to make eye contact and talk about your past like educational background and previous employment experiences. Also talk about the job that you applying for, they need to know that you are really interesting in the job.

In this video you can see some interview questions that maybe help you.

When the interviewer ask about yourself you need to talk about your professional background you need to prove the interviewer or the company that you are perfect for the job. You need to show the skills that the companies look for like performance, commitment, loyalty, ability to complete project and the job skill that you have. With the question what are your greatest strengths? You need to talk about the skills that are directly applicable for the job that you want. And my final recommendation is that in the interview make all the answers positive.
