FOUR ways to give back and show gratitude on your gift registry

November is the month of gratitude but there are ways to give back and show thanks all year long - especially through our gift registries. There's nothing like getting a new gift/experience just like there's nothing like GIVING a gift or experience.  Here are FOUR ways you can show your gratitude using your gift registry.  1. Get some, give some When you're registering for an experience, be sure to add a way to give back, whether you're traveling the world or learning a new language. If traveling is on your to-do list, let your contributors know that you'll be working a volunteer mission into your trip. If learning is at the core of your receiving experience, perhaps offer to teach those on your registry list a little bit of what you learned at a hosted party at the end of the year. There are infinite ways to give a little while you're getting a whole lot. Leave your ideas in the comments below. 2. Notes of gratitudeIt's an oldie but a goodie. While we here at My World Registry are far from traditional, there are some traditions worth holding on to, like writing personal thank you notes to those who make your experience dreams come true. You [...]

This will help with interview skills as well, which leads us to our next step... Brush up on your interview skillsSilvi Galmozzi says, "you have what it takes: motivation, drive, skill and talent. However, without solid confidence, we are often unable to show and communicate this to the person on the other side of the desk or phone line, who is trying to decide if we have what it takes to perform successfully. It can be frustrating and many times devastating, to not be able to show your true value for your dream job." But [...]
