Haiku Deck on helppo tapa luoda visuaalisesti näyttäviä dioja. Kuvahakuominaisuus on mainio. Haiku on helppo käyttää, rajoituksena vain se, että formaatti on melko joustamaton. Muistiinpanodiojen tekemiseen en tätä käyttäisi, mutta virikedioihin, ideoiden esittelyyn, mihin tahansa, missä tärkeintä on luoda tunnelmaa.

Excellent article...thank you so much for the suggestion! 

 

The interview will be concerned with the gap; however, most inerviewers really want to know that you have made good use of that time.

 

Did you volunteer, learn new skills, go back to school, help with an urgent family situation.  Please read on to gain more insight on how to discuss your gap.
