My goal is to continuously work as hard and honest as I can to achieve my additional long-term goal, which is to climb the corporate ladder. Opportunities will arise where I have to prove myself and push to the next level, and I am prepared to do this. I have selected this goal because it fits my personality, my ambition, my interests, and is the career that I want in the business world. I am applying these goals to a career in the home-health field. To improve my skills and experiences I will make a conscious effort to learn the most about every job in the company in addition to my own. I will draw from my personal experiences, and will hopefully learn from the experiences of others. It is not enough for me to learn my job alone, and work as hard as I can by myself, but to…… [Read More]
In my senior year I will have the opportunity to conduct independent research on a topic of my choice. My senior project will focus on a specific area within my chosen discipline and to carry out the project I will learn about the protocols of academic research. Moreover, my project will involve creativity and collaboration with classmates and will demand academic diligence. The skills I develop throughout my senior year will carry over into graduate school and into my career, as I will undoubtedly write and read countless reports related to the state of international markets and the market climate relative to the energy industries.
Second, immediately upon graduation I would like to embark on a challenging internship post with a multinational corporation or finance firm. Because I relish the opportunity to work abroad and in different business and cultural environments, I would investigate opportunities on multiple continents. Part of…… [Read More]
competitive society it is increasingly difficult to get ahead without a proper education. An education is necessary for providing the foundation for success in life and in one's career. Without an education students lack the breadth of knowledge, experiences and insight necessary to excel in a competitive workforce. At the right University a student has the opportunity to interact with diverse populations, express their ideas and learn from others. I believe that opportunity exists at NYIT, and it is here that I hope to pursue my education and expand my personal and career oriented horizons.
An education in architecture, such as that provided at NYIT, will provide me with the focus, skills training, dedication and breadth of knowledge I need to succeed in my career and life. My hope is to graduate with a bachelor of architecture at NYIT. I have selected the field of architecture based on my love…… [Read More]
Like any person with interest in the financial services sector, I am interested in maximizing my value, in terms of the quality of my education and the value I hope to bring to my future clients upon graduation as a CPA (Certified Public Accountant). As an institution, Marquette possesses strong academic and ethical values, and I hope that I will be able to infuse this sense of obligation and commitment to excellence into all of my work. Accounting requires individuals who are detail-oriented regarding numbers and the unique needs of individuals and organizations, and who will uphold the ethical standards of the profession. Marquette will take my current skills, ethics, and commitment to my future vocation and hone these qualities to the point where I can feel confident of my professional expertise.

This activity involved holding a career discussion with a solid citizen, Angie. This activity presents the results of the application of two career coaching discussion skills including discussion background. My career coaching discussion was with my MSR.
First, I wanted to know more about Angie and her career background. For this purpose, I asked Angie questions concerning her short- and long-term career interests In response, the client advised that following graduation from college as an anthropology major, she decided to work in a part0time job while pursuing her master's degree.

Therefore, we discussion her planning stage as…… [Read More]
The authors also are careful to point out how critical it is for someone to find what areas of their work they are the most passionate about, and seek to align their jobs with those areas of the greatest interest. At the intersection of innate interest on the one hand and talent on the other, the authors have seen exceptional career growth in a very short period of time (Wrzesniewski, Berg, Dutton, 2010). This strategy is shown in the article and also underscored by how critical it is to stay focused not on just a career but on a personal development agenda as well.
When an employee has been able to align their personal interests with those of their roles in an organization, quantum jumps in performance are commonplace
(Wrzesniewski, Berg, Dutton, 2010). The authors also found that employees who were reaching this level of expertise were getting industry recognition…… [Read More]
long-term career goals. How will your academic background and prior work history, coupled with a Smith MBA degree aid you in achieving those goals? -- 2 pages
As an international student seeking to complete my education in the United States, I am a firm believer in the American dream. One might think that Coming to the United States for my undergraduate education was the first step in my pursuit of the American dream; however, my pursuit of the American dream actually began when I was still in Taiwan and began working at the same time as I attended high school. It was through that work experience that I began to understand that hard work, done in the proper manner, really can help a person achieve their goals and dreams. In fact, my ultimate long-term career goal is to be able to be my own boss and open my own business,…… [Read More]

Banking and finance are lucrative fields that will see increasing amounts of growth in the coming decades. This is from the rapid development of emerging economies. That is creating the need for more products and services. At the same time, businesses require the advice of large financial institutions to determine how to address a host of issues. The long-term effects are that more knowledge individuals are required to meet these demands. (Simpson) (Sanderson)
After completing the degree program, I plan on perusing a career inside the industry. This is based upon the fact that I have the personal characteristics which will help me to be successful.

Moreover, I am from China and can speak different dialects of Chinese fluently. These factors provide me…… [Read More]

Intended Degree Program
Educational and Career Goals
I am most interested in pursuing a Masters Degree in Engineering. I am interested in a program such as this for a variety of reasons, including the challenge that comes with studying Engineering at the graduate level. Whether or not most people know it, it is true: engineers have altered the course of world history.
There are people who train as engineers that stay within the field becoming professionals in engineering. There are also a number of influential people throughout world history who have trained as engineers that then go onto become lawyers, physicians, teachers, and even university professors. Engineering is an extremely practical and useful academic pursuit. Studying as an engineer will provide intellectual stimulation, as well as lay solid groundwork for nearly any professional pursuit I endeavor upon in the near and distant future.
Engineering is a field that fulfills me…… [Read More]
I have chosen to apply to the paralegal studies program because that field of study will provide a thorough introduction to the entire legal profession. Naturally, the paralegal program will prepare me to pursue a professional career as a paralegal, a field that I expect will be both intellectually challenging as well as professionally rewarding. Moreover, I understand that the training required of paralegals promotes a comprehensive understanding of the full range or procedures and processes within the legal profession more generally. That training would, understandably, prove invaluable to anybody with future aspirations within the legal profession in virtually any other capacity. In fact, it is my understanding that much of the paralegal preparation in those areas is even more thorough than that received by law school students and a law school graduate with prior training or experience as a paralegal typically is better prepared to enter the…… [Read More]
Please discuss how you plan to achieve your short-term and long-term career goals. What challenges will you face and how will you leverage your professional and academic experiences to achieve these goals?
My very first short-term goal is to secure an admission into graduate school for a master in finance program, where I intend to enhance my current knowledge and build professional networks that will steer me to a supervisory position in the Structured Finance Group of an established financial institution such as Latham & Watkins or Sandler & O'Neill. I look forth to supervising a group of between 5 and 8 by the end of my degree program. This will not only give me an opportunity to market my skills within the company and beyond, but will also be a door-opener for the realization of my middle-term goal, which is to be the leader of the structured…… [Read More]
Once I have finished college, I will look for a junior position at an accounting firm. With my accounting job experience and good achievements, I am confident that I have good prospects. Once I have been hired, I will prove myself by delivering an excellent service. My hope is that the firm that hires me will offer advancement opportunities, towards which I will then work.
Once I have about one or two years of experience, it is my aim to start learning what I can about getting my CPA license and starting a business. Once I have my license, I will start a small business while I am still employed. This will ensure that I still have the security of my job income while I work on building my business.
Another challenge I will face in this quest is balancing my career and business choices with family life. While my…… [Read More]
The "Dutch Test for Conflict-Handling," indentified my personality to have medium 'yielding' conflict style. This is consistent with my articulated belief that agreeability when handling conflicts is required, but not to the point that ethics are ignored. My test results on the "Big Five Personality" test thus support the notion that when handling ethical conflicts solving problems on a personal level and achieving a mutually beneficial solution is ideal. The need to do this in the financial industry today is evident in how many banks must renegotiate mortgages -- no one wants a foreclosure, as this benefits neither the home owner or the bank. Rather, resetting an interest rate so the home owner can stay in the homes but still make payments is the best solution, and this requires a compromise on both sides, ideally without a settlement in court.

It is my desire to be one of these leaders, and the case method of instruction at Harvard Business School is instrumental in bringing my leadership capabilities to this level of potential.
Both ESSEC, the graduate business school I attended most recently, and Dauphine University, at which I obtained my real estate Master's degree, are located in France; my employment, despite being for large international firms, has also kept me in my native country. Though I am fully aware of the benefits of a European perspective and position and have a definite appreciation for my cultural heritage and the diversity that France is home to, I am also aware of the limitations that such a singular perspective brings to business leadership potentials and capabilities in our time. Through my many travel experiences, including several to the United States and a month-long journey through some the most undeveloped parts of Mali,…… [Read More]
I am particularly interested in the students who have challenges, either educationally or behaviorally. I feel that by working to develop new assessment tools it will be possible to further evaluate the skills and abilities for these students which may previously have been unavailable to us. I look forward to working with teachers, parents and students in order to formulate tools which will help students get the most out school.
Educational psychology is an excellent career move for me. I have experience working with children who have autism, high school students, and my personality seemed to be a good fit in what can be a challenging and rewarding environment. I think my current education and work experience melds nicely into my hopes to work in a research capacity, designing evaluations, analyzing and interpreting data and presenting coherent results. While I do not consider myself a linear thinking, I believe that…… [Read More]
career interest is accounting. Accountancy is the process of evaluating the financial information about business entities to users such as the managers of the shareholders (Elliot, & Elliot, 2004). Accountancy falls into three areas: accounting, bookkeeping, and auditing.
I choose accounting since it will give me a solid employment with a lucrative wage and this is what is important to me. I have also learned that it can be fun in the investigative way if I se it as such. The work conditions are fine -- not too tedious and best of all I can structure them at my convenience. I can work either for an institution or be self-employed. Chances for advancement also depend on myself and, best of all, I can find global opportunities in any and every business..

6). This graduate indicates that rather than relying on the innate abilities identified by the career aptitude test, she "worked realistically with the grit and gumption I possessed, as opposed to counting on my talent to pave the way" (quoted in Bell & Short, 2003 at p. 6).
Some commonly used career aptitude tests include the ACT's (formerly American College Testing) EXPLOE testing regimen that examines 8th and 9th grade students' career aptitude using a battery of tests that provide a range of potential occupational choices. According to ACT's promotional material for the EXPLOE test, "This information can help you learn more about careers, clarify your goals, and begin to plan your future -- including your high school courses and, perhaps, a college education" (Your future, 2010, para. 2). Likewise, the EXPLOE handbook for 2009-2010 states, "With thousands of occupations in the work world, where do you begin? Your EXPLOE…… [Read More]
My notable contributions in this capacity include obtaining investment funding and sponsorships, securing a co-production partnership with Storm 360, a leading West African entertainment company, and forging media partnerships with HiTV, Silverbird TV, NN24, and BusinessDay among others.

Furthermore, I played an integral role in representing company in key business negotiations.
Further, I also played a pivotal leadership role in winning various team-based tasks, including developing and marketing a new fast-food chicken entree for Chicken Republic, planning and executing a hotel redecoration project at Eko Hotel & Suites, presenting a route to market's strategy for West Africa's largest cell phone provider, Celtel, and formulating a marketing strategy for a new energy drink for Nigeria's…… [Read More]
It is the role of the career counselor to work with the diverse populations and help guide them to success through building their confidence in their abilities.
Career counseling is a profession in which the counselors have an impact on the national workforce and its direction, though many professional counseling majors in college ignore career counseling as a potential career. As the world continues to diversify and globalize the impact career counselors have on society will continue to expand.

To register, sonographers must pass a series of tests proving mastery of ultrasound procedures.
At the same time, sonographers can also receive special training from a variety of different venues including specialized programs ancillary to nursing coursework. The most common means of achieving the required certification is via a two-year Associates degree program ("Medical Sonographer Career and Job Information"). Coursework in specialized sonography programs includes ethical issues in health care as well as instruction in anatomy and physiology. Moreover, sonographers must prove they are able to life, push and pull heavy equipment and should be in general good health ("So You ant to Be a Sonographer").

After less than two months, I have seen some noticeable differences: I have more energy during the day, I sleep better at night, I can concentrate more fully and my stamina has improved. I know that working for the CBSA can be a physically-demanding job, but I am confident that I will be able to handle the exertion and stress that comes with it. I handle stress well: exercise is a great way for me to fend it off, and I also practise meditation and deep breathing. One of my biggest frustrations is when I feel that I should know something that I can't remember, thus my commitment to learning more about border security and the laws that govern it. This preparation will benefit me both on and off the job, and will allow me to make a greater contribution to the CBSA.

For this reason, contract specialists do not need as rigid a background as, say, a neurologist does. A contract specialist usually develops his or her skills for the job while working for a large organization that engages suppliers in major contractual agreements. Devotion to an organization may precede the decision to become a contract specialist. or, a business student might decide that the communication-oriented nature of contract specialization suits his or her personality. Another person might find that while standard legal careers were disappointing, a career in contract specialization helps bridge the gap between the law, business, and the public sector in ways other occupations cannot possibly do.

According to the O-Net Online Summary Report, marriage and family therapists "diagnose and treat mental and emotional disorders, whether cognitive, affective, or behavioral, within the context of marriage and family systems." A systems approach is integral to the work that marriage and family therapists do, because they view individual psychological issues as inseparable from the greater family and social system. This enables a holistic approach to treatment interventions, and can be a culturally sensitive, culturally competent facet of psychological counseling.
The primary tasks of a marriage and family counselor include the following. First, communications skills are of the utmost importance because one of the central roles of the counselor is to listen and ask appropriate questions at the right time. A marriage and family counselor meets with more than one member of each family, too, making good communications skills a prerequisite of the profession.
Second, diagnoses should be based…… [Read More]

Nursing is a profession where people have the opportunity to give back and hopefully, make a difference.

Over the next fifteen years I would like to prepare myself for an upper-management career in a top advertisement firm. By then I will have amassed the requisite skills for such a position, in which I will network and interact with people in any number of business sectors to fulfill their marketing and advertising needs. I will also be able to control the design and production of multimedia advertisements; research demographics; and stay abreast of industry trends. At a top position of management within a large advertising firm, I will enjoy the perks of a highly stimulating, intense work environment, including a plethora of networking opportunities, lasting business relationships, rewarding contracts, and a relatively high salary.
Before I reach that level of success within a top advertising firm, however, I will first take some primary steps. For example, five years from how I will have completed my undergraduate and…… [Read More]
In Eric Borden's case, his knowledge of the industry and of the developments that occur on this segment recommends him either for the research and development department or for marketing, since he would be able to ensure that the marketing strategy that the company has is in line with what occurs on the markets. From that perspective, his salary structure could be changed so as to ensure that he receive an increased base salary rather than the sales bonus program he receives now.
In the case of Ving Hsu, his financial package needs to be adjusted, because he currently works as a sales representative, but receives only the base salary, although he is eligible for the sales bonus. However, it seems that much of his activity is focused on training his customers on how to use the products rather than on increasing his volume of sales. A more relevant measure…… [Read More]
Goals Statement couldn't believe my eyes. After all the wrapping paper lie strewn on the floor, I held in my hands the best present I had ever received. It wasn't a Game Boy or a new CD: it was a book called "Chemistry for Kids," and it came with a small lab set. I wasted no time, and immediately set out to perform my first experiments. I felt high as I gathered ordinary household items and watched them change into new forms of matter. My very first experiment was a success, and a practical one, too: I made my very own toothpaste. No many people can say they made toothpaste when they were ten years old, yet with the help of a simple chemistry set and a few materials I found around the house, I experienced newfound joy in my daily ablutions before school.

"Why a company should hire you as a personnel, operations, deployment manager."
I believe that I would be an excellent candidate for a deployment manager because of my extraordinary combination of experience, education, and acumen.

I have experience as a program integrator and deployment manager, a deployment readiness officer and logistical coordinator, a central issue manager, and a deployment mission manger. All of these positions have provided an environment in which I have been able to fine tune many of the skills that are needed to fulfill a personnel, operations, and deployment manager.

Second, a major benefit for many computer programmers is the option of working on a variety of very interesting and challenging projects. Often the projects require months off planning, programming and continual work to get the applications to performing at their highest possible performance levels. Third, many companies now sponsor in-house training and development seminars, with a few even having local universities come in and teach the latest techniques on programming. This is a major time-saver for programmers as it gets them more knowledge to do their jobs, and also make them more valuable in their careers for the long-term. Fourth, programming is a profession that lends itself well to individual achievement and accomplishment. For those programmers who are exceptionally good at their work, they become well-known in their fields and often get promoted. Companies also provide many conveniences to programmers to alleviate time drains on them. Google for example…… [Read More]
Gushue, Clarke, Pantzer, et al., (2006) examine the application of social cognitive theories to career counseling, reporting that self-efficacy is a pertinent issue in this process. In particular, these authors report that:
Career decision making self-efficacy refers to the degree to which individuals feel confident in their ability to successfully engage in tasks associated with making a career choice and with commitment to a career. It has also been observed that career-related self-efficacy in general may prove to be an important element in formulating a model of career development...(p. 308).
Gushue and coworkers go on to argue that when career self-efficacy is high, individuals are more assertive in the career counseling process. Thus, by developing career self-efficacy, career counselors can effectively improve interactions with clients and facilitate a greater understanding of client needs with respect to career decision making.
Applying this to the larger context of social learning theory, it…… [Read More]
The significance of career training programs i.e. formal and non-formal educational measures help in quality development of personnel and promoting the achievement of career goals and objectives as well as success in the field.
The hospitality and hotel management industry provides numerous opportunities for individual development and success. Notably, success in this industry depends on the formal and informal career training and educational programs that an individual receives.

Setting goals: SMART
Setting goals is an important part of moving forward in life. Martin Luther King Jr. once said: "If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward." Of course, all of us would like to fly forward and reach our goals easily. But often long-term goals take a great deal of work to achieve, and are the cumulation of a series of short-term goals that are undertaken step-by-step.

Military Career as a Single Mom
Few challenges are as difficult as those faced by a single mother. These women have to juggle their careers, studies, or personal pursuits with the continuous and selfless care of her children and their needs. Often, this entails such a person denying herself to provide for her children. Without a partner to help, time and money can both be very constrained. In my case, many may consider my decision to pursue a military career even while I am a single mom as a little crazy, at the very least. However, this is an important decision I have made both for myself and my children. It has affected my life in important ways, including the way I feel about myself, the way I care for my children, and the outlook I have on the future.

That is something where I hope to take the lessons I learned last semester and change some of my habits so that I learn more efficiently and effectively next semester. Over time, what I hope to get is a lot more knowledge, but even more than just learning things I want to learn the higher-level thinking that people get from college. You hear people say that it is not what you learn but how you learn it, and that higher-level thinking is a skill that you can take with you long past your college career. In that sense, I feel that this process as it plays out will really help me get to be the person that I want to be.

Detail Five-Year Plan for Career, Including Jobs You Want, How Leverage Education and How Prepare Yourself for This Path.
Experience has taught me that despite one's best intentions sometimes the unexpected evolves. Taking this into consideration I gladly outline my five-year goals understanding that unexpected events or circumstances may change my path slightly, but ultimately not interfere with my primary purpose, which is to develop and manage my own company.
In the next five years I plan to acquire the professional skills and experience needed to start my own information-systems business in the global economic market. To facilitate this dream I intend on seeking employment with Wall Street in a position that will endow me with practical knowledge in product development within the international finance market. I plan to acquire a position that will teach me how to market products successfully so I can translate these skills into solid business…… [Read More]
The nursing coursework I have taken so far focuses in particular on the second and fifth competencies, regarding information and technology. Courses like anatomy and physiology are fundamental information-gathering classes that provide a firm foundation for aspiring nurses. Thorough knowledge of the human body, its functions, and its diseases, plus knowledge of medicine are imparted through nursing classes. Furthermore, nursing instructors also demonstrate how technology plays a role in the profession. We use computers to access medical databases, for example. Therefore, the second and fifth competencies are related to one another. In addition to their use as information technology, computers also provide the backbone of almost all electronic medical equipment. Nursing courses also show how sophisticated machines such as CAT scans are implemented in hospitals.
I am particularly weak in particularly those competency areas that the nursing courses cover: information and technology. Regarding resource allocation, interpersonal skills, and systems understanding,…… [Read More]
Hesitant to Pursue a Career in Business
Whom it May Concern
Re: Why I Am Hesitant to Pursue a Career in Business
In a tough economy, most people would probably take any job they can get after they graduate from college. However, as it comes closer to graduation, I find I'm becoming more and more hesitant when I think about launching a career in business. That's because it seems there are so many unethical companies out there, that will do anything to make money, even if it kills people in the process. I'm not talking just about Enron and AIG here, who preyed on their customers and ruined the lives of many of their investors and employees. I'm talking about companies that knowingly engage in unethical business practices, just because they can. Look at the Chinese company that included melamine in its pet food, and killed hundreds of innocent pets.…… [Read More]

The nursing profession has always attempted to put forward a positive, clean and healthful image. Throughout history the nursing industry has tried to portray nurses as angels of mercy, and as ethically upstanding, helpful healthcare professionals, just a few steps down from doctors in terms of medical needs. But lately the images of nurses has changed and not always for the best. This paper critiques the images of nurses through a review of the available literature.
The highly respected Gallop Poll ranks nurses at the top of the list of several important professions in terms of "honesty and ethical standards" (Gallup, 2010). In a 2010 polling project by Gallup eighty-one percent of respondents rated nurses "Very High" or "high"; number two below nurses was "military officers" (73% rated them "very high" or "high"; number three was "druggists or pharmacists" (71% rated them "very high" or "high"; and number four…… [Read More]
Student Affairs as Both A Field of Study and a Profession
What is Student Affairs?
Tyrell (2014) believes student affairs professionals have a continually expanding and evolving role in community colleges, with recognition of increasingly complex student experiences and with broadening of community colleges' role in the way students are engaged outside of and within formal, institutional settings.
The student affairs domain is an extensive and complex part of college campus operations, covering several departments and involving professionals hailing from a broad range of academic backgrounds. Student learning does not occur only in classrooms; rather, it is interwoven all through students' experiences in college, right from their freshmen days to the time they leave its doors after earning their college diploma. College students are molded by these experiences, conflict management lessons learnt from sharing dorms with fellow students, critical thinking skills perfected through challenging coursework, leadership skills attained through leadership…… [Read More]
matriculated at ____ College/University without a very clear idea of my academic goals. I felt young and a bit naive when I entered university, but through experience and hard work I have matured and gained focus. Like many first and second year students, I took the required courses without a clear idea of what my major would eventually be. However, knowing that I wanted to solidify my career goals, I decided that I would find my niche. With the future as a blank slate, I pursued various majors until I found that I was drawn to the sports industry.
My grades, which had suffered a bit due to my having to work full time while in college, improved immediately after I realized how clear my path had become. I trail blazed, determined to complete my degree on a high note. I became more interested in internships with professional organizations that…… [Read More]
education preparing for this leg of career development. I not only attained undergraduate work in Psychology and obtained my B.A. But I have fine tuned my value to this program by working in fields that dovetail with my eventual career goals as well. I attended college and got my undergraduate degree while working with children and adolescents so the combined experience and knowledge would make me a strong candidate for entry to this program.
I believe that education alone is not enough, nor is work experience. I planned my life to incorporate both so by the time I reached this point I would not only be sure I wanted to become a psychotherapist, I knew I had what it took to succeed as one. I believe that my educational choices as well as my employment choices demonstrate that desire.
The completion of this program will provide a strong foundation for…… [Read More]
Transferring and Objectives You Hope to Achieve:
Since my ultimate career goal is to gain the knowledge, experience and qualifying skills to be hired by a flourishing corporation in their finance department -- eventually following in my mother's footsteps as a chief financial officer -- I am eager to transfer from Pepperdine to the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California.
The Marshall School of Business consistently rates high according to the ranking by U.S. News & World Report -- and by BusinessWeek, Bloomberg's respected publication -- and the business school's undergraduate accounting program, which I am also very interested in, has high ratings as well. My desire to get an education in finance first led me from Pennsylvania to the University of Pacific, and thereafter to Pepperdine University.
But after a semester at Pepperdine, I know I need a stronger challenge in a university with leading…… [Read More]
Professional Plans and Career Objectives
Goal Statement for Insert Name
My career mission is to work in a dynamic team-oriented company performing financial analysis and helping to guide key decisions related financial projections that direct capital expenditures. I enjoy the mechanics of small details and insuring compliance to specific budgets, report types and the impact that this type of granularity has on recommendations for major decisions within a company.
My pre-college work experience taught me the differences between customer service, labor, and accounting and finance. The hands-on work I performed in a service industry provided me with an appreciation for customers and the need to efficiently do a good job but this type of career left me without a sense of challenge. Eventually I felt drawn to the back office as I learned that the payments and processing and efficient entry of data surrounding transactions was the lifeblood of the…… [Read More]
A cursory glance at job market statistics offers a grim picture, leading many to pessimistic conclusions. The United States Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics points out that increasing numbers of young people are graduating from college and entering the job market now, leading to increased competition in many job sectors (1). Likewise, rates of unemployment have been at near-record lows, especially for young men (United States Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics 1). Baeurlein also points out the problem that many college students have with debt accumulation from student loans, making it difficult for them to get a foothold on their careers. Yet not all graduates are doomed to flounder in the labor market. I am pursuing a career in adult probation and parole. On reason why I am optimistic about my future prospects is that working in corrections is a public service sector job that does…… [Read More]
Goals of Corrections
The rationale behind retribution is simply to punish the offender and it reflects the most basic natural impulse of human societies in response to individuals who deliberately break the established rules of society (Schmalleger, 2009). Its purpose is nothing more than to satisfy those impulses, particularly on the part of the victims of criminal acts. The types of penal sentences that reflect pure retribution are long terms of incarceration and even hard labor and other forms of punishment that are expressly designed to be unpleasant for the offender. The types of crime control strategies dictated by this philosophy are those that make penal sentences as long and as unpleasant for offenders as is constitutionally permissible (Schmalleger, 2009). In many respects, this was the approach taken in American criminal justice prior to the revolutionary ideas first introduced by William Penn (Schmalleger, 2009). The only "advantages" of this…… [Read More]
Security professionals should know what that kind of cooperation entails and what the possible limitations are, and really what the professional expectations are for investigative cooperation, so as to not impede or otherwise hinder active investigations.
While private security as a profession has boomed in many ways, there are some key ways in which the industry still lags behind. One of these ways is accurate data collection, data presentation, and collection of other relevant statistics. This must be a modern issue that security professionals take seriously. Statistics may be dry to some, but that trait does not diminish the value or the necessity of accurate and up-to-date statistics about the industry, including demographics, tools used, success rates, rates of collaboration with other agencies, and more. With modern tools such as data visualization, it is relatively more simple to represent large quantities of data in visually appealing ways in a condensed…… [Read More]
prioritizing your work on a typical day?
Prioritizing work means coming up with a schedule that is based partly on the importance of meeting specific deadlines, but also based on the actual importance of each task and the people who requested them. Low priority items would get shifted to the bottom of my to-do list, freeing up energy and time for the more important activities. However, on some days it is helpful to tick off some of the low priority and easy tasks early.
Tell us how would you handle a disgruntled customer who is not satisfied with your job performance?
Handling disgruntled bosses or disgruntled customers requires patience, confidence, and poise. The first thing I would do would be to take a step away from the conversation if I find myself getting upset. I can return to it later with a calm and clear mind. Then, I would try…… [Read More]
Yet MDG efforts in a lot of nations are failing to speak to the wide-spread prejudice of women have to face in retrieving food, water, hygiene and covering, while biased strategies, laws and performs that reinforce gender-based viciousness and weaken development on all the MDGs, have been left to aggravate. In spite of the negative viewpoint by many, those of the UN and the United Nations Development program uphold that they headed into the right direction in achieving the goals that are being put into action in the MDG.
In conclusion, it appears fairly obvious that the Millennium Development Goals are tremendously determined. In spite of an unparalleled effort in the direction of development all over the globe, it appears extremely improbable that all the objectives can be met by the year of 2015. It appears that evens the poorest places, as well as that of the sub-Saharan Africa, will…… [Read More]
I was then able to provide him with some academic advisement by suggesting ways that he could become better organized and not procrastinate with his work.
A also listened to his problems and suggested ways that he could deal with them more easily. I suggested to him that he practice confidence and speak to the bully verbally, but that he should never use any anger toward that person. At our next meeting he informed me that he did try it and the boy had stopped bullying him. I also had the opportunity to help solve problems for other conflicts. For example, I coached a volleyball team of high school girls for three years. There came a time when I had to be a mediator, and this was really what gave me the idea to become a counselor due to the way I coached and counseled my players. It brought a…… [Read More]
Clickers/esponses Phonics Lesson
Phonics Long Vowel - Silent e Lesson Plan for Special Education
Students will recognize and say words that follow the c-v-c-e and v-c-e rule where the first vowel is a long vowel and the final e is silent. By using the Clickers/esponses as a classroom game they will utilize them after hearing the correct sounds.
Students with the will be able to spell and write out some basic long vowel words that have c-v-c-e and v-c-e spelling patterns and will use the Clickers/esponses when they hear the right sound.
About the Concept:
There are several regular long vowel spelling patterns in the English language. The c-v-c-e pattern (consonant-vowel-consonant-final e) is a long vowel spelling pattern which occurs quite frequently in early reading and spelling. Essentially, the phonics rule for this design mentions that when a vowel and final e are separated by a single consonant, the…… [Read More]
This means that the country will have enough 'supply' of accountants at the time demand will be greater (in the future). Interestingly, this increase in demand for accountants will also correspond to an increase in projected median annual earnings for the profession. While the highest earnings belong to accountants who are involved in "tax preparation, bookkeeping, and payroll services," (at $57,000 per annum), management accountants -- that is, accountants involved in "management of companies and enterprises" -- placed as the second most highest per annum salary among accounting categories, at $55,000 per annum (U.S. BLS, 2007).
This positive outlook to management accounting is supported by Ms Dale, who believed that accounting is one of the professions that is recognized as financially rewarding and intellectually stimulating, across societies and cultures all over the world. She likened the profession as a high-low job, where working conditions are usually located at the extreme…… [Read More]
