The Lost Opportunities of Our Age

19 March, 2014 (04:31) | Uncategorized | By: admin

Explore Window - Microsoft Word 2010When I started working at fourteen years old, I had no idea how to even make a resume. I had no idea what a resume was! My dad had a friend of a friend who owned a car wash that just needed some kid to work part time to fill in the hours that he needed to be taken care of. It was easy enough. This experience lead me to believe that most employment opportunities would be like this – I didn’t start utilizing resume templates for word until years later when I was out of high school and began to have a difficult time picking up work. Before that, I could get work all day long through whomever just because of my age.

Being Prepared in the Advent of a Crisis

14 January, 2014 (13:31) | Uncategorized | By: admin

... Project: Received Red Cross CPR & First Aid Certification CardsKnowing what to do in a crisis is an incredibly important skill that, sadly, many of us lack. When there is an accident or someone has been injured, most of us simply do not know what to do. We may run to the scene but what are we going to do for the people involved besides make a phone call? In those precious first moments there might be a way to save their lives if something must be done. I saw someone die after a car wreck and, feeling helpless, I enrolled for first aid training courses the next day. I watched them bleed out, trying my best to wrap some cloth around their thigh but didn’t know what else to do for them.

Great Programs for a MBA

16 October, 2013 (20:30) | Uncategorized | By: admin

I am thinking about going back to school in the near future, and I want to try to get into a mba program if I can, because I have always liked the field of business. I think that I would be pretty good as a business administrator, but I do not know if that is actually what I will end up doing with my degree. It is hard to say, but I do know that I want to have a graduate degree, and this seems to be the best way to go about getting one.

I would like to get into a pretty good program though; so I am going to start look for MBA programs in the state that have good reputations, and also, good track records for producing people who go on to be successful i their fields. I want to have a good job one day, and I think that this is probably the best way that I can beef up my resume in the way that I want. I think that have this degree will make me a tremendously more hirable candidate for a lot of jobs. I had been applying for jobs with only the strength of my undergraduate degree in the past, and I really did not get many responses. That is one of the main reasons why I am going to go back to school. I had thought that I might just be able to get a good job with my undergraduate degree alone, but that does not really seem to be the case. I was going to continue looking for another few months, but I am going to have to repay my student loans soon if I do not get back into school on a full time basis in the near future.

Great Ideas for Team Building Activities

14 October, 2013 (04:31) | Uncategorized | By: admin

team building activitiesI work for a company that was recently purchased by a new owner, and the new owner has been trying to make some changes in order to improve how the company runs since he first took over. I am not sure if the changes will help, or not, at this point in time, but it is not like I have any say in the matter. Anyway, one thing he is doing, is making the department heads do total team building exercises in order to try to improve the strength of their team, and how efficiently each department works.

I am not sure if that is really necessary, because some of these departments consist of people who have been working together for a long time, and I am not sure that a team building exercise will do much good. For example, my department has been the same for almost 3 years now; we have not gained a new member, or lost a member of the department, in almost 3 whole years. That sounds pretty incredible, when you think about it, but none the less, the new owner wants me to come up with some team building exercises, and I guess that I do not really have much of a choice in the matter.

I am going to try to to look online to help me to come up with some great ideas for team building; it needs to look like I put a serious amount of effort into finding the team building activities that I end up suggesting for use. I will have to submit the activities I plan to use to the new owner, for approval, prior to using them with the members of my department. I wish that he would just trust that I will pick some good ideas for team building instead, but I guess I can understand his reasoning as well.

Taking IT Courses over the Computer

4 September, 2013 (16:34) | Uncategorized | By: admin

Being in the technological age, it is important for my company to stay on top of things. One of the most important things for us to do is to make sure that we have the latest knowledge of anything to do with computers and networking. The best way to do this is to have our employees who handle our computers take regular it courses. Though some have taken courses in the past, something new is always coming out. The only way to really know what to do with all of these new things is to have the proper training for them.

I could have sent these employees to various workshops since we are in a large city, but we decided that online courses would be a better option. That way, they can do it from the comfort of their offices or even their own homes if they choose to do that. It was also much cheaper for us to go this route, since we pay much less for an online course than what we would for even a one day workshop. There is too much to be learned in just a few hours anyway.

I also liked that they would have all the support that they need while they are learning through these training courses. It might be hard for someone running a workshop to answer all of the questions that people may have since time is so limited, but that is not the case with online learning. They also continue to receive support even once the training is over, and that is what was important right after the price. There are so many different training courses because of how much technology is evolving, so we are sure to stay on top of everything since we can take as many of the classes as we need to.

Getting Help Finding Quality Custom Assignment Writing

17 April, 2013 (12:37) | Uncategorized | By: admin

... the best writing service for your assignment writing | Nova RiderStudents who are interested in studying math or science in college should be encouraged as much as possible. Our future depends on encouraging innovative thinking, and this needs to begin at an early age. We should not wait until college to start pushing students to study the sciences. Instead, they need to be taught how to love science as soon as possible. One way to do so is by finding custom assignment writing services that will help teachers produce high quality assignments that will serve to push children toward science and math, rather than away from them.

Too often, children find themselves bored and uninterested in science classes in school. Many science teachers find it difficult to inspire a real love of learning in their students, especially after years of teaching. Math is also a subject that is famous for driving children away quickly. However, many young children are natural scientists.

It’s Your Freedom to Drive

2 April, 2013 (12:31) | Uncategorized | By: admin

Driving is a privilege and arguably, a right. It is something that all people within their societies deserve to have. It improves the quality of life for all people, allowing you to gather food much easier, access opportunities such as education and work easier than ever before. Yet, it is not something that is easy to learn and to be honest, I find a lot of the typical classes we have access too are fairly terrible. Which is exactly why I found driving lessons in Manchester to be some of the best I’ve come across. Sure, I learned in school but I still felt relatively unsafe going into the test – I knew that I wasn’t prepared and it was important for me to be able to get out onto the road with a safety oriented mind.

Students who graduate from high school have high hopes of making it in to their dream stream of career and secure a comfortable as well as challenging life.

Proper umat practice can help aspiring students to improve their chances of ensuring admission for such a prestigious medical program.

My Son Needed a Math Tutor

17 December, 2012 (21:32) | Uncategorized | By: admin

When my son’s teacher requested a meeting with me, I was concerned because I had a feeling he was not doing as well as he had led me to believe. She confirmed my worst fears, but she also gave me some hope too. She told me that he can comprehend the material when she spends extra time with him, but she was finding it difficult to give him the individual attention that he needed since there were 25 other students in her class too. She suggested I do an online search for a san francisco math tutor since that was the subject where most of his problems were.

She wanted me to look at the different tutoring options since I would be the one paying the money to hire someone to help my son. I found quite a few pretty fast, but I also realized that I would not hire most of them pretty fast too. His teacher had given me a list with a few tutors on it in the area, in case I had a hard time making a decision. The one that I found online was also high on her list, so I went ahead and read everything I could on that tutoring website.

I was happy that my son would have someone who had been trained in the subjects that he needed the most help in. I had a consultation with the tutor that I chose, and I really liked the approach and methods that would be used in the tutoring appointments. My son enjoyed working with the tutor since he could finally go at his own pace. His tutor explained everything in detail and was very patient with him. It did not take long at all before his grades started to raise again, and I could not be happier with the route we took to do that.

Quickest Way to Qualify for a Good Paying Job

10 September, 2012 (20:31) | Uncategorized | By: admin

I have started thinking about what I shall do in a couple of years when I graduate from High School. I really do not think that a real college is what I want, although I do like the idea of lots of girls 18 to 23 who are away from their parents for the first time. I could see myself enjoying college way too much in fact. It is just the sort of person I am. I like girls and I do not mind partying. However I need to do something more practical and 2 year colleges are what I am thinking about now. I know my parents can not really afford to pay for me to go party for four or five years without accomplishing anything. Instead I shall try to figure out what I want to do for a job. I am thinking hard about learning something about computers. That is something you could learn in a short time and have a huge opportunity for earning money.

I am thinking about computers because of my friend’s brother. He went to a technical college for a couple of years and now he’s making around 40 thousand a few years later. He is really good with computers and always was, even when he was in High School. I am okay with computers and I am interested in them. To earn a good living you just have to be good at making computer networks run or programming computers. Perhaps you could get by making web pages if you could find clients who needed to have pages built. Jack used to make web pages for small businesses and he made a fair amount of money just doing that in his Mom’s basement while he was in school. He drove an almost new Celica. I’d be happy with that right now.

Tutoring for a Nine Year Old Home Student

7 September, 2012 (00:30) | Uncategorized | By: admin

We decided long ago that it would be better for us to home school Jack Jr and his sister Marcy. Marcy is still only six, but she can read at a third grade level and is quite proficient in arithmetic, geography and basic science. He brother is nine years old and shall be ten in about six weeks. Already he is learning differential calculus, although we are not responsible. He simply decided that he could not be an astronaut if he did not learn to do calculus. I guess we need online tutoring from someone who is good with kids, because Jack Jr is still a kid and he can be a handful. He is quite serious about becoming an astronaut and then going to Mars, which of course will probably require a lot of math and a lot of science.

Giving My Students Hope About a College Education

23 July, 2012 (16:30) | Uncategorized | By: admin

I’m a high school teacher doubling as the school’s guidance counselor, in charge of helping students find financial assistance to attend college, and every year things get very busy after the first of the year. That’s when the seniors, and some enterprising juniors, start streaming into my office and classroom looking for information about getting into college. The last couple of years has really proved daunting for these students, however, due to the economic downturn and the worry about excessive student loan debt. The smart students want to know whether college is really a sound investment or if it’s simply a scam that will leave them in the poorhouse without significant job opportunities. Sometimes I don’t really know what to tell them. The employment situation is poor, and the job outsourcing hasn’t helped college graduates in any way, shape, or form.

New Jobs in the Area of Technology

20 July, 2012 (16:30) | Uncategorized | By: admin

I had been working as a academic counselor for a while and I really enjoyed my job. One of the main things I did was talk to students about what direction they wanted to take their education. I was surprised at how many students really did not know what they wanted to do. But I had a lot of training in the area so I wanted to help them all I could. I did a lot of reserach on what areas were growing. I sometimes even called staffing agencies. The other day I call sfrica staffing. They were always a lot of help. They wanted me to encourage students to go in areas such as technology, engineering, science and math.

Where to Pursue a Pharmacy Technician Education

19 July, 2012 (12:31) | Uncategorized | By: admin

Are you interested in going to one of the many pharmacy technician colleges? There are several institutions across the United States that have great programs; each is slightly different, particularly when it comes to the kind of degree that students can obtain, the type of course load they will be required to handle and the material that they will be learning. Some schools also allow students to complete material online, which can be useful for those who already have a job or have other responsibilities at home.

Everest College offers a certificate program. They make sure their students are well versed in certain areas, such as nutrition and anatomy. If you are interested in this program, it is worth noting that you must attend courses on campus; there is no online option. It is available in fourteen different states, including New Jersey, Texas and California.

For those who can’t leave the house, the US Career Institute may be just the ticket.

Helping Students Get Their Thoughts Down on Paper

16 July, 2012 (10:30) | Uncategorized | By: admin

Writing is not always an easy thing to do. Just because an individual does not write well about a subject does not necessarily mean that they are not a good student, or that they have not been able to learn and assimilate the information that is being taught by an instructor. It may simply mean that a student is having a challenging time taking the information that they have learned and putting it on paper. For that reason many individuals have frantically search Google, and other search engines for the term help me write my essay.

While some may see using an essay writing service as a form of cheating, the truth of the matter is that very intelligent people who are well-informed about a subject, may hire a ghostwriter to help them take all the knowledge that they have about a subject, and put it down on paper. As long as the student is able to understand what he has been taught, and make practical use of it there’s really nothing unethical about using a service that helps them organize their thoughts on paper.

Trying to Keep Up with My Hectic Schedule

15 July, 2012 (13:07) | Uncategorized | By: admin

complete homework problems faster and innovate on your design projects ...I have been feeling really stressed out lately because of all of the things that I have to do, especially in school. I have so many homework assignments right now that I don’t even know what to do. I was actually thinking about looking online for homework help to see if I could get some help with some of the assignments that I have, especially in my Spanish courses. I have to write a Spanish essay and I definitely do not have the time to do it.

I decided that I was going to try to take some extra courses so that I could graduate early, but now I am thinking that that was not such a good idea. Besides school, I work a part-time job and I have a lot of family responsibilities. Sometimes I think that I am going to go crazy with all of the things that I have to do. I usually only sleep three or four hours per night and I can tell that this is taking a toll on my body. I am constantly caffeinated with soda, coffee and black tea.

I Worked As a Home Health Aide and Did Very Well

12 July, 2012 (01:30) | Uncategorized | By: admin

I credit my experience as a home health aide in helping me to get grounded in the fundamentals of math, science and other health related technologies I needed to know to expand my career in the health industry. I started out with minimal training and would go into homes to assess and report on a patient’s condition while offering assistive help in the tasks of daily living. I would do everything from helping with personal hygiene to making lunch.

I always tried to do a little extra. To some, the elderly seem demanding. I just saw people in need with no one to really help them. I understood when an elderly woman that could have been my grandmother would ask me to do a chore not specific to my job title. I will fondly remember those days as a home health worker no matter how far I go in medicine.
