Food & Travel

Jack's Bar-B-Que and Nashville

Typically on this blog I like to provide career related content…

HOWEVER, I am actually a huge foodie and I love travelling, so I wanted to share an awesome restaurant I visited. Over this past weekend, I took a road trip to Nashville, Tennessee. What a great city! While I was visiting, I stopped by a restaurant that many people had suggested to me. Me and my friends waited a little less than 1 hour to order my meal from Jack’s Bar-B-Que. I must say that the wait was well worth it!



There were plenty of meat options and I chose the smoked turkey breast while the two others I was with chose the beef brisket and the baby back ribs. First I should talk about the ribs. The meat was falling off of the bone AND the fat. The beef brisket was awesome and very flavorful and my smoked turkey was delicious. I only wish I had tried the BBQ chicken and brought a plate back home. 

There were also a lot of sauces to choose from and I tried both the original and the Texas sweet sauce. All of the sides looked so good. I had the mac n’ cheese and baked beans. Yum!


 


Well I just wanted to share with you. If you find yourself in Nashville, TN please visit Jack’s Bar B Que for me. I also truly enjoyed visiting Honky Tonk CentralTequila Cowboy and Tootsies Orchid Lounge if you’re looking for some cool nightlife options.  ;)



Happy Summer Travels,

Jess

How to Prepare for the Interview?

An interview can be a nerve wracking experience. What should I wear? What should I say? What questions should I ask? As a Corporate Recruiter and Senior HR Specialist I've seen some of the best and the worst of interviews. From my experience I've found that there are three main areas that people should focus on when preparing for an exceptiona interviewing experience.

1. Research

Always start any job search with research. Once the job interview is landed, this becomes even more important. Read about the company history, culture, recent news and any other insights you can find. You should also review the job description that you've applied to. Be prepared to ask and be asked questions about the company and the job. Next, you'll need to do some research on yourself. Sound a bit strange? Well, I'll explain what I mean by this. Do you know what skills and/or knowledge you will bring to the company? Do you remember the kinds of projects you've taken on in the past fe…

Reviewing 2016 and Planning for 2017

One of my top goals for 2016 was to pay off a sum of student loan debt. I ended up paying off close to $10,000 of debt. This was a great accomplishment, but I still have a long way to go. I am so thankful to Dave Ramsey and his 7 baby steps to financial freedom. The approach he lines out is very easy to follow and more importantly IT ACTUALLY WORKS!

Dave says that in order to pay off debt, we need to assess our current regular income and expenses. Then we should locate where we can increase what we bring in and/or decrease spending. Next, he recommends saving a starter emergency fund in order to ensure that we will not add to our debt if or when a situation arises (this is what he calls Murphy - Murphy's law). Once the emergency fund is built of $1,000, we need to list out all of our debts from smallest to largest amount and begin putting any additional income to the smallest debt. Continuing down the list, we use the same process until the very last debt is paid off. This is call…

On the road to finding my purpose...

As I explore this idea of finding my passion, I've come across many varied opinions on the subject. I scoured Google, YouTube and other social media channels to gain a consensus around what others have done to find and develop their own passions. I was surprised and comforted by the amount of information available. There are plenty of people in the same boat as me. Adults (young and old alike) that haven't yet discovered their passion or purpose in life.


With so many viewpoints on the subject, I found a Ted Talk that declares that there is no need to find your passion. Passions change. You will find your passion eventually as you live out your life, the speaker encourages. Well, I do agree partially with this. Do I think that a person should not continue looking for their purpose? No, not at all. I think there are people living out their passion every day - doing things that give them pure joy. I think that to the speaker's point, people should not stress or refrain from l…
