I can still think back to the time when by best pal got in for a formal job interview. It was her age old wish for this sort of chance to arise and wishes everthing will come out the way she favored it to. Who could blame her when in fact becoming an editor for a celebrated fashion magazine had been her lifelong wish. Rather than taking heed to the instructor when we were still in college, she would in secret read through Vogue and read about fashion, beauty points, celebrity chit-chat and more. I reckon it was because of her influence that I took up Journalism also.
When the big day finally arrived, she woke up really early (I am dubious if she even slept at all!), lathered herself with the best perfume and put on a Gucci business clothes. Overall, she was clothed for success. She was really overexcited that she ended up an hour before the schedule. She then came up to the individual in-charge at the reception area, introduced herself and told the lady that she was scheduled for an interview. The receptionist looked at the list for her name, smiled, and asked for her CV and her recent picture. To her surprise, she found out that in her anxiousness to go to the venue for the interview, she forgot to bring all of her important documents with her.
Luckily, I was just a few blocks away from where shes at and I rushed to aid her, well, before she cries in front of everyone else. I brought my laptop and asked her to make another resume again. An abyss, void of anything – that was her. It seemed as if her brain and all her faculties ceased to function. So instead of making another CV we got one from her email but then again theres another problem. Her CV doesn’t include her recent photograph.
Do you have a picture in your mobile phone? A lady asked; who I believe was eavesdropping on our conversation. My friend nodded yes. But I was a little bit reluctant if we can accomplish it. How in God’s name will we be able to transfer a picture from a phone to a computer w/o Bluetooth? My mind ran back and forth thinking of a solution.
And then it hit me: DATA CABLE. The lady fortunately let us borrow hers and it practically saved my friends life. Minute as it may look but this tool works wonders. One can connect her mobile phone as a wireless modem to a computer or laptop and access internet from anywhere through the use of an inexpensive data cable. The latter provides communication between the mobile phone and the computer. Files such as pictures, documents, movies, etc. can be transfered in this way. Pretty neat!
