Based on the assessments I have taken, and in the information offered by Moeller (2012), achieving a higher education is the most important key to securing a good career in the future. All but two of the jobs listed in the U.S. News and World eport require higher education and special skills training. Computer-based careers have the highest growth potential, which is unsurprising. I fully intend to take this information to heart, and to apply myself more diligently at school so that I can land a lucrative career in a field that interests me.
The approach toward a career will be based partly on my personal financial interests and goals, as well as a knowledge of my personality and character traits. I have a natural leadership ability and am an extraverted person. Therefore, I will do well in any corporate setting requiring me to work with others on…… [Read More]
Careers in Human esources
Human resource management (HM) is one of the professions that exist in all organizations. Every organization is made up of people bound by a shared goal or objective. For the achievement of the goal or objective, the people have to be properly trained, supervised, motivated, and rewarded. This is the core of HM -- managing people with the aim of achieving a defined purpose. Therefore, the importance of the HM profession cannot be overemphasized. Indeed, HM is crucial for organizational success. Without the right people for the job, as well as equipping them with the necessary resources, support, skills, and capabilities, an organization may not successfully achieve its mission and vision. Managing people involves a wide array of processes, ranging from recruitment and selection to training and development as well as payroll management, performance management, and employee relations. This means that HM is a broad field…… [Read More]
Thank you for expressing interest in my career. This is the first time someone has asked me about what I do, and how I got to this position in the first place. I am flattered that you have enough interest and am more than happy to share my story with you. As you know, I am the head chef at a local restaurant. You want to know about the obstacles I had to overcome to achieve this position, and whether or not I have advice to give you if you want to pursue a career in the culinary world.
I believe that culinary arts are, as the title suggests, an artistic endeavor. Like music, dance, writing, and other creative pursuits, the culinary arts requires passion and a sense of purpose. People enter this profession because they are passionate about food, cooking, or the restaurant industry in some way. This…… [Read More]
Thus, the job market for video production is large and varied, especially when it is compared to the market of just a few years ago. hile finding a job will most likely be relatively easy, new video producers may have to work as a freelancer for some time, along with working at another job, in order to make ends meet. hen on cultivates a reputation, however, the second job can be dropped.
here the Jobs Are Geographically
hile one might expect video production jobs to center mainly around the Hollywood area, they are, in fact, everywhere. One might have more luck finding video production jobs in areas where it is warm and more outdoor weddings, sports games, and beach trips can attract attention, but companies need video producers to capture their product on film all over the country. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, most video producers work in…… [Read More]
Mental Health Counselor
Professional History with Integration of Class Activities
The ability to inspire trust, respect, and self-confidence, along with a powerful desire to help others are key characteristics of mental health counselors. For someone to be a certified counselor, typically, a Masters Degree is required, but requirements differ from state to state. The job perspective for mental health counselors is positive as more opportunities are available than certified graduates.
The mental health philosophy focuses on holistic health, or balanced life as a primary construct. However, the present mental health design and the tenure in universities are driven by systems that emphasize the importance of promotion, accolades and identification as a procedure by which an expert is analyzed as successful. By sticking to this procedure, I could be overly considered as having a powerful identity in the profession. With the current system, male experts may remain at higher levels of…… [Read More]
Careers in Biology
Training in biology provides biology majors with a wide variety of potential career options. The choice of potential careers is wide, even within a specific area of biology. Further, biologists often fulfill a large number of roles even within one career track. The choice of potential employers is wide, and includes federal and government agencies, as well as agriculture and pharmaceuticals, and other private and public industries. In addition, the amount of education required depends largely upon a specific career choice. Choosing a career in biology is about matching a wide number of factors, including personal ethics, salary, and personal interests.
ithin biology itself, there is a wide diversity of potential careers that exists even within fields that are seemingly small. inter and Belikoff note, "The classification of biologists as botanists, zoologists, or microbiologists gives little hint of the wide variety of biological disciplines that exist.

Flooding, global warming, terrorism, and hurricanes are some of the disasters and emergencies which can be managed effectively. In some cases they can even be mitigated if there is proper planning and response. I have always had the passion of helping people who find themselves in a difficult situation and they have no way of getting themselves out of that. It has always be my hearts desire to be helpful to my community especially in the event a natural or manmade disaster occurs. I find a lot of joy in offering my assistance to people especially those who have no way of getting out of such situations. This is the reason why I chose to pursue a degree in disaster and emergency management. I would like to expertly assist communities become stronger and resilient when it comes to man-made and natural disasters through my degree course in emergency…… [Read More]
The position requires knowledge of business management, finance, and accounting. Interestingly the educational backgrounds of individuals in this field vary considerably, reflecting the diversity of duties and levels of responsibility. Certification and previous experience are assets for most specialties, and are essential for more advanced positions, including managers, arbitrators, and mediators. The human resources field is changing rapidly with increasing use of technology, training, and outsourcing. The trend today is for human recourse managers to have a bachelor's or even a master's degree.
Individual qualities necessary for success in this field include integrity, confidentiality, and excellent skills in interpersonal interactions. This occupation attracts people who are sensitive, extroverted, big picture and team-oriented. Because human resources jobs exist to support more visible functions in the company, they are not for people with huge egos and a strong need to be center stage (Heathfield, NDI).
I believe I have the necessary traits…… [Read More]
Major in Success: Make College Easier, Fire Up Your Dreams, And Get A Great Job by Patrick Combs seems to cover every aspect of college, career and life in very readable terms. His frank approach inspires and is also far more enjoyable and comprehensive than some other authors who write about career success. Combs' approach is both strong and weak but the inspirational nature of the book, plus the suggested resources, make the book very useful.
Major in Success: Make College Easier, Fire Up Your Dreams, And Get A Great Job by Patrick Combs is a pointed guide about success in college and employment. Combs stresses that success requires extraordinary determination and drive (Combs 3), with a passion as powerful as a forest fire (Combs 10). That passionate determination does not necessarily mean the highest GPA in a particular major; rather, prospective employers will want to know if…… [Read More]
individual high-quality restaurant career seekers face difficulty finding high-quality opportunities for investigating employment. The available web resources often do not meet the needs of a serious applicant, either by not providing enough information about the available jobs and their company or by being glutted with very brief and voluminous opportunities, which might or might not be a match for the applicant. Conversely restaurant owners and managers face seeking employees through these same web offerings with no real guarantee that the applications they receive will meet the needs of the organization. The restaurant industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the country and as such more and more people, who once thought of a restaurant career as a temporary opportunity, possibly to assist them in education or other career goals are now choosing the restaurant industry as a viable career end. Due to its exponential growth over the last…… [Read More]
Job Hunting in the Job Market
Job Hunting Techniques
In the past, I have used a combination of job hunting techniques. Job hunting and success in job hunting comes very much down to persistence. Job hunting is not an instantaneous or static process; one must apply persistence as part of the technique in job hunting. There was one point where I would hunt for jobs on a daily basis, even a few times a day, which did not often prove effective. Although some times, as an after thought, or in a moment of spare time, I might job hunt more than once a week, but I learned over time that it also worthwhile to not job hunt so often, especially online. To my job hunting technique I added some patience in letting online jobs accrue. It does not hurt to give job hunting some time, perhaps job hunting online,…… [Read More]
Steps were also taken to organize a stock market in Lahore (Burki, 1999, pp.127-128).
Also organized during this period were the Pakistan Industrial and Credit Investment Corporation (PICIC) and the Industrial Development Bank of Pakistan (IDBP), both of which were important to industrial development, obtaining "large amounts of capital from the World Bank, the former for investment in large industries, the latter in relatively smaller enterprises" (Burki, 1999, p. 128).
This may account for the relatively better developed structure of Pakistan's economy compared to those of other poor nations. Although services in Pakistan accounted for 50% of the economy in 1995, the service sector had changed in 50 years because of Khan's attempts to modernize it. In most less developed nations, the service sector provides employment for those with no skills who would otherwise not have a job at all. In more developed countries, service industry jobs tend to require…… [Read More]
However, the specific training and education requirements depend very much on a company's specific needs. Previous computer experience is also of vital importance, as is a diversity of related skills. Employers are currently requiring a larger base of diverse skills around the focus of technical expertise. Elements such as interpersonal skills and creativity may be combined with the technical requirements of the job, for example (rock, Pers. Comm.).
The greatest concentration of workers are in the systems design and related industry. Internet service providers, web search portals, as well as data processing and related service firms are the main industries requiring the services of computer professionals. The government, computer manufacturers, financial institutions and universities also employ computer specialists, and the list is growing. As the 21st century advances it is likely that an increasing amount of firms will become computerized and thus need computer services either on a contract or…… [Read More]
Family, Careers and Marriages: Reaction to Articles
The topics of family, careers and marriage are ones that all individuals of all walks of life deal with on a somewhat daily basis. Through these three articles, scholars provide an interesting information into specific areas within this broader topic of family, careers and marriage.
Foremost, Korenman and Neumark's paper entitled "Does Marriage Really Make Men More Productive?" provides interesting insight on how marriage correlated with an increased salary among white males. Korenman and Neumark explore how the married workers tended "receive higher performance ratings than single men; as a result, they were likely to be promoted" (Korenman, and Neumark).Using human capital wage equations, the scholars explored data that led them to believe that married men had higher salaries. One of the more interesting conclusions that Korenman and Neumark make is in regards to never married men- that there is "faster wage growth…… [Read More]
According to Clark and Horan (2001): Scientists also agree that parents are the single most influential factor in the career development and choice of their children. [Schulenberg et al. 1984; Seligman et al. 1991; as cited by Clark and Horan } Parents have so much influence due to the fact that the experiences and environments of the stages of growth during what is termed the "impressionable years" of the child's life. Bandura, et al. 2001 writes that: "Parental influence on children's academic development has been extensively research but how parents affect their children's career development has received little attention despite its centrality to the paths their children's lives will take. In the second pattern of influences in the structural model, parents exert their effort on career choice and development mainly through their impact on their children's self-efficacy appraisals, educational aspirations, and scholastic achievement."

Founded in 1866 with the main campus housed in Grand Rapids, Michigan and 14 campuses located all throughout Michigan, Davenport University offers both graduate and undergraduate degrees with a distance learning option focusing on innovative, practical and affordable education (usnews.com). Davenport University is the only Michigan-based private university specializing in business, technology and health professions serving approximately 12,400 students. Davenport University prepares individuals and organizations to excel in the knowledge-driven environment of the 21st century (cappex.com).

By focusing on security and the most recent programming and networking systems, Davenport is ahead of the curve in educating students for the future. Another Davenport plus: Our technology degrees include a strong business foundation, exposing you…… [Read More]
There are several career options within the accounting field. An accounting education provides the basic knowledge that can serve as a useful springboard for any number of different careers within the field. Some of the many options are identified by the Bureau of Labor Statistics in their Occupation Outlook Handbook (2015). One career within the profession is as an auditor, and another is as a managerial accountant, but there are many more besides these. Usually, a bachelor's degree is just a starting point, and an accounting graduate will need to pursue a professional designation in order to have a focused career.
An auditor is someone who understands corporate financial management, and the role of auditor is to review the financial statements and accounting data that an organization has, in order to ensure that this data is accurate and reflects the financial condition of the company. There are internal auditors,…… [Read More]
These categories are: Bachelors (Baccalaureate social work degree upon graduation, Masters (Master's degree in social work-MSW with no post-degree experience), Advanced Generalist (MSW with two years post-master's supervised experience), and Clinical (MSW with two years post-master's direct clinical social work experience). (ASWB)
The content of the ASWB changes depending on the level of the test administration. In general the content of all tests contain a section on human development and behavior in the environment, a section on diversity, a section on assessment in social work practice, a section on direct and indirect practice, communication, professional relationships, professional values and ethics, a section on social work supervision, and a section on service delivery and social; work administration. Each test contains a series of 190 questions.
Like the CPA exam, the ASWB exam has been around for several years. However as times change, so does the ASWB tests. During the 1990s, the…… [Read More]
Some, however, choose to devote their time to healing those who cannot otherwise afford medical care. International organizations like Doctors Without Borders offer jobs to such altruistic doctors. Many public sector jobs also involve regularly giving lectures.
Doctors who prefer to work behind-the-scenes rather than with patients may prefer laboratory positions. Laboratory positions can be further subdivided into categories related to the specific area of specialization such as oncology or infectious disease. While not all laboratory positions pay well, many do. Moreover, laboratory positions can also be classified into private and public: some research facilities are private corporations whereas others are exclusively government and taxpayer-funded institutions.
Each category of medical position: private practice, public sector, and laboratory work, offers rewarding careers that help the advancement of science and that contribute to human health. Private practice jobs appeal to entrepreneurs who appreciate independence and large paychecks. Public sector medical jobs may…… [Read More]
Finding the most appropriate and up-to-date information about a specific career could be a tedious process. Luckily though, there are numerous sources of career information an individual could rely. In this text, I analyze three occupational information sources.
O*NET esource Center (http://www.onetcenter.org)
In brief, O*NET describes itself as "the nation's primary source of occupational information" (O*NET, 2014). As the organization further points out on its Website, its database comprises of hundreds of descriptors that are both standardized and occupation-specific. One key advantage of this particular source of occupational info is the fact that its database is continually updated so as to keep up with trends and changes in the job market. The said update is done through "surveying a broad range of workers from each occupation" (O*NET, 2014). Yet another key benefit of this source of occupational info is its huge database of occupational definitions. It should, however,…… [Read More]
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").

If a person has good Public elations with superiors and subordinates of the field, he will get the benefit of these relations. If he has decent qualification and he is competing with another applicant with same qualification, he may b preferred over the other just because of his Public elation (P). This P also helps the employee to prosper within the company and reach the top position in the company. A person's nature is a big asset for him. This asset can bring huge successes for him in the career. And he can also prove to be a great asset for the company that can fetch some business for the company. So his progress in the career is guaranteed.

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.

Those who have a more professional work, like a doctor or a lawyer tend to have a higher position in the society as compared with a carpenter or a waiter. A 5 occupational class scheme was discussed: 1st class is the upper level managers and professionals, 2nd class would be the medium level managers and professionals, 3rd class are the lower level office and service workers, 4th class are the skilled manual workers, and lastly, the 5th class is the unskilled manual workers. (ohnson, 2004) Therefore, social class can delineate a person's occupation and therefore characterize his/her experience of work.
Another factor that may affect a person's work life is disabilities acquired, for example, physical disabilities. A person may have one kind of disability or another. he/she may have lost an arm or a leg, he/she may have loss the ability to see, hear or speak. These unfortunate events also…… [Read More]
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]

Mobile-based Customer elationship Management (CM) Applications
Of the many software applications that sales professionals rely on daily, their Customer elationship Management (CM) systems are the most essential for informing existing customers of new products and sales, and tracking new ones. Of the many selling and service strategies that CM systems enable, the most valuable is in gaining a 360-degree view of customers and ensuring every department in an organization stays focused on their needs and wants (Beasty, 2007). CM systems provide sales teams with the ability to coordinate their selling efforts across the company, getting needed support and collaboration with the diverse departments and divisions that they rely on to sell products and services. An example of how a typical CM is organized is shown in Figure 1, Microsoft CM System Design. The design of CM systems is predicated on creating a system of record…… [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.
A think, given what I have learned about the financial…… [Read More]
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.
Where I Am Now

Career Possibilities for omen in Philosophy
Philosophy is not a hard science requiring that problems be worked out with formulas and centuries-old givens. The American Philosophical Association says that, "Philosophy is a basic field of inquiry. Its range encompasses ideas and issues in every domain of human existence; and its methods apply to problems of an unlimited variety. The major in philosophy can develop not only philosophical skills and sophistications but also intellectual abilities that are readily applicable to pursuits in everyday social and personal life."
The options open to women in philosophy are nearly endless. Because the study of philosophy develops critical thinking and analytical skills, it provides a background for careers requiring problem-solving, along with the ability to view issues from other perspectives and develop logical arguments with a sensitivity to the values of others. Philosophy can be the starting point for any number of careers. This is…… [Read More]

esearching companies is very important when anyone is considering a future career. The two companies researched here will be Wal-Mart and Target, in order to determine which one (if any) would be the best choice for me to work at based on all the factors that are important.
The purpose of the report is to discuss both Wal-Mart and Target, in order to show that the companies have many similarities and differences to be addressed when I am looking for employment. The scope of the research addresses a SWOT analysis, along with other information about the company.
The majority of the data will come from Marketline documents that provide company and SWOT analysis information. Other data comes from the companies' websites and an article written about Wal-Mart's expansion to other countries.
Target is the preferred company to work for, for a variety of reasons. Those reasons will…… [Read More]
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]
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 capacity of interpreting and using information to create scenarios and, even more important, access to all the latest information in the financial sector (currency exchange rates, declarations by key players on the different markets, announcements made by world leaders etc.) is an important benefit of the job. Imagine that instead of having to go out on the market and obtain relevant information, you find it all on your computer, at a touch, and the only thing you need to do is filter through it, pick out the important things and be able to interpret these correctly.
Further more, despite the fact that there is an incredible responsibility, one of the great advantages is that this responsibility can be interpretable. You make analysis, not decisions and, from this perspective, the responsibility refers only to the correct interpretation of the data and information that has been provided rather than to making…… [Read More]
The U.S. Marshal Service position involves perhaps more dangerous duties than that of the FBI agent. esponsiblities include locating fugitives, going on lengthy assignments that often involve surveillance and stakeouts. Accordingly, essential skills include patience. It is also noted that agents working for the U.S. Marshal Service should be experienced, organized writers who can efficiently file reports. The video also noted that those with experience in law enforcement stand a greater chance of getting hired.
My qualifications for the U.S. Marshal Service position are similar to my strengths regarding the FBI agent position. I am an accomplished, lucid writer and my strong physical build would assist me when engaged on dangerous assignments. Additionally, my itinerant upbringing makes me uniquely qualified for extended, two-week assignments. Although I do not have experience in law enforcement, I feel my skills in other areas more than compensate for this particular deficit.

One of the most unique performances of Karloff's career was narrating the Dr. Seues cartoon "How the Grinch Stole Christmas."
In his personal life, Karloff enjoyed playing Cricket, and was actually quite good at it. Karloff was the coach of the UCLA cricket team. He also liked to hike. His wife was not an actress, and they had one daughter together, Sara Jane born in 1938. Karloff was kind-spiritied and generous, donating large amounts of money to charities for children. He was also a charter member of the Screen Actor's Guild, and was quite active in the movement to get safer working conditions for movie actors in the 1930s. After many successful films, he returned to theatrical acting on roadway in 1942, when he starred in the first production of "Arsenic and Old Lace." He also appeared in live performances of "The Linden Tree" and "Peter Pan," in 1951, and…… [Read More]
"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 been exposed to a variety of high-pressure situations and have always handled myself in a diligent and professional manner. 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.
I attribute much of the success that I have so far achieved in my career to my self-motivation and military professionalism. The military taught me a lot about maintaining a professional composure through some…… [Read More]
Career Management: Wal-Mart Overview
Wal-Mart falls into the realm of mega retailers. There is no product or service that Wal-Mart has not considered at one point or another.

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]
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]
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]
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]

Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) definition of harmful substances include toxic substances such as chemical matters or biological agents that are known to cause harmful health effects. Many of Humana's innovation or product workers work in such environments. Interaction with such products include health effects that introduce respiratory infections, positioning, disorder of lung, kidney, and liver, skin rashes, burns, neurological impact and far 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]
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..

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.

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]

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]

This Personal Marketing Plan (PMP) will guide me on the areas I need to focus more as far as my career is concerned.
I am an American resident having completed all my studies here. Throughout my elementary and secondary years, I held various positions such as class representative. Later, I got an admission in the University and since I was inclined to the commerce side, I opted to major in management. After completing this course, I intend to sort out today's market needs and the employment opportunities just within the country (Herrick 50). My belief is that improvement and continuous innovation are the keys for competing in the currently challenging market. I have done extensive research…… [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]
The salary ranges from $80,000 to $110,000 (Kalbach 45).
Rank advancement relates to the level of experience of the employee and the amount of years of services within the context of the business entity. For individuals or experts to command rank advancement within this field, they must develop large pool of experience and qualification to be able to serve in the higher ranks. The employee must also serve within the company for certain duration in order to merit promotion. This type of rank advancement or promotion depends on the performance and personal or character traits (honesty, loyalty, and obedience) of the employee. The company must be convinced on the performance levels of the user experience designer to guarantee or facilitate promotion to higher ranks with better remuneration or wages.

Accounting is a common function in virtually every organization, irrespective of size and industry/sector of operation. The function is generally concerned with documenting business transactions and preparing financial statements. The accounting field offers numerous career paths. These include financial accounting, managerial accounting, internal auditing, tax accounting, financial analysis, payroll clerking, and forensic accounting (Bureau of Labor Statistics [BLS], 2015; American Institute of Certified Public Accountants [AICPA], 2017). Though related, each of these careers is unique in its own way. A financial accountant is involved in making and receiving payments, recording transactions, and preparing financial statements. Closely related to financial accounting is managerial accounting. While a financial accountant prepares financial statements for use by outsiders such as shareholders and lenders, a managerial accountant prepares financial records for internal use. The work of a payroll clerk is to ensure employees are paid accurately and on time. The clerk prepares, processes,…… [Read More]
career in architecture actually began when I was a child, when with wonder-filled eyes I beheld the designs and finished plans both my parents produced. My father is an architect, the principal in his own company. My mother is a painter and the owner of an interior design firm. Both of my parents' passion for their work inspired me to pursue a career along the same path.
Throughout high school and college, I sought personal, academic, and professional means by which to manifest my dreams, such as taking any courses that were relevant to the field. Because of both school and my parents' presence in my life, professional resources were plentiful for me. I have plenty of visual images imprinted my mind as a result, too. Therefore, my eventual decision to pursue architecture in college naturally stemmed from my early experiences and passion for creativity, form, and function.

career when you first started taking classes? Now that you have performed research and written your professional plan, how have your thoughts changed?
Prior to taking COMM 150, what did you think would have been appropriate sources or research strategies? Have your thought changed? How did this influence your evaluation of the sources you have used in other research papers?
I, actually, was quite vague about the term Information Literacy and Research (ILR) and did not consider myself needing the instruction. Until now, I had thought that if I would need certain information, I would simply type it into the browser (if using the Internet) or withdraw some book from the library. I think I was also not particularly discriminatory in my sources. The author who had a PhD following his name was preferable to me, but otherwise I followed that which appealed to me and, as I later discovered,…… [Read More]
career - how do his late stories differ from his early stories?
AYMOND CAVE'S WOK
aymond Carver wrote from the time he was a young man until his death at 50 in 1988. He wrote of his own experiences as an alcoholic, young father, and blue-collar worker. His writing was always classified as postmodern, however, as with most authors, his writing changed from his early work to his later works. "The surfaces of Carver's stories look calm and banal, but especially his portrayals of marriage problems are full of emotional tension, hidden memories, wounds, longing, hate, anxiety, and melancholy" (Liukkonen).
One of the contrasts between Carver's earlier works and his later works is in the minute detail of eating. In "The Idea," Carver's characters use eating as a substitute for communication, especially with those who they should be the most intimate. In "Cathedral" the baker tells the couple whose son…… [Read More]
A Practical Comprehensive Career Counseling Plan for Middle School Students
Thankfully, dreams can change. If we'd all stuck with our first dream, the world would be overrun with cowboys and princesses. – Stephen Colbert
Many young people have a general idea about what they “want to be when they grow up,” but as the epigraph above makes clear, these ideas tend to change over time as they learn more about the world and what types of occupations are available to them. To this end, career counselors can facilitate this process by helping students learn more about their viable career choices depending on their individual preferences and aptitudes. This paper describes a proposed “career day/fair” for middle school students to help them become more knowledgeable concerning their career choices followed by a summary of relevant career counseling contributions by other researchers. Finally, an explanation concerning the importance of addressing career education…… [Read More]
