Internship

My internship was at Verbena Vision Photography, which is located at Miami. The business specializes in wedding photography, catering mainly to Chinese clients. I met with Jia Song, the owner, when I first arrived. Her company is primarily about the Chinese wedding photo business. Chinese couples, when they are getting married, like to do wedding photo shoots at exotic locations. Miami is one such location, and that is why the business started. Mrs. Song explained a little bit about her business, and that she wants branch out a bit in the future, doing things like graduation videos.

There are eight people who work in the office, and I was able to meet all of them, though it took a short while before I remembered everybody's names . My job for this internship was to assist with the photoshoots. I was an assistant to the chief photographer, and in this…… [Read More]

1.3 Reflection

The skills that I took away from this experience were those of networking, and budgeting. But most importantly, the leadership skill was a valuable skill that I obtained from this internship. If I could only choose one skill learnt in this internship, it will be the leadership skill which seemed very paramount in the running of any business outlet. Without a strong foundation of leadership skill, one cannot lead the company to a high level; he cannot inspire the employees to do a better job, nor to lead the company out of harsh time.

Relating my studies to this internship, I was indeed qualified to participate in this internship because I am an open minded person. I do not get offended by people pointing out my weaknesses which I am always grateful for and willing to improve or change. I loved to hear either positive or negative feedbacks…… [Read More]

This particular problem also reflects certain issues with the organizational culture that existed at the institution, which in turn pointed to problems in the perceived value chain in operation due to the relationship that has been noted between the culture and value (Griffin & Moorehead 2009). Though value creation is often viewed in terms of competition, all value is ultimately derived from internal actions and efficiencies, and is eroded by inefficiencies; the cultural attitude that the soiled sheets were simply "not my problem" in the opinion of the aides created an inefficiency and so eroded value (Alkhafaji 2003). This attitude also ran directly counter to the policy of collective and individual responsibility.

The solution to this problem was very straightforward and simple following the identification of the primary problem (or weakness) of the strategy that had been implemented for dealing with the soiled bed sheets. Establishing accountability and restoring the…… [Read More]

Internship

Every organization has its vision, mission and set goals that need to be accomplished. Even though some goals set are long-term plans to the organization. Successful organizations often set long and short-term goals for their services, it is therefore important for those goals to meet their specific criteria. "Goal setting is one of the basic tools used by organizations to assist in setting a direction and achieving it. Successful organizations often set long- and short-term goals for service development, improving quality, reducing errors, becoming more customer-focused, and building better internal and public relations."- Jeffery Davis, Managing and Achieving Organizational Goals. Accountants often set goals and objectives for the entire department to ensure the business performs the best possible accounting practices at any given time.

Goals set by most organization are to ensure that, the business performs the best at any given time by making a quality product, increasing the…… [Read More]

LA Internship Program

Throughout the course of the program, I have gained great insight into the technical, cultural, and academic aspects of entertainment, media, and production. This insight, coupled with my experience, has helped me to better understand the demands of production, and has allowed me to understand the planning that is needed to successfully complete projects. The courses I have taken, and am currently taking, have contributed to my academic success, and have afforded me with the experience and knowledge necessary to continue to pursue a career in electronic media and production. Furthermore, I believe the LA internship program will further strengthen my development and understanding of production by allowing me to see how the process is utilized outside an academic environment.

International Business/Marketing Internship eport

In today's world, it is impossible to think of business on a local, or even national, scale. Today's business reality is a global economy, for businesses large and small. Thanks to globalization, national borders have been lowered. This means suppliers, customers, and competitors are not necessarily just down the street, but could be located anywhere in the world. As such, it is critical for organizational team members to have a firm understanding of the international dimensions of business. Without it, organizations cannot be truly competitive in today's global economy. I anticipate that my internship experience at Korona Tours and Travel in Cyprus will reiterate this fact to me.

Korona Travel is a young travel company that services the Cyprus Tourism Sector. They pride themselves on the high level of service they provide to their international customers. They operate tours out of eleven countries including: ussia, Belarus,…… [Read More]

How an Internship Enhanced My Knowledge of Public Schools

Words: 1494 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 83027179

intern in the administration of an inner city school. Learning the "ropes" in terms of what administration staff does in a school environment requires the ability to research, it calls for good listening skills, and the ability to closely observe what skilled, experienced professionals are doing. It also becomes clear from the beginning that asking questions is a vital component of the learning process as an intern.

The underlying value of the internship -- personal experiences and observations: It would not be possible to place a specific value on the experience I had in participating with the administration, but there were lessons and achievements that certainly added value to my resume and to my brain's database of positive school-related experiences.

Overall I was pleased to have a chance to participate as a liaison with parents, and to learn about and participate with the parent educational program. Part of the school…… [Read More]

Social Work Internship Experience With Alzheimer Patients

Words: 1397 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 19889572

Social Work Internship Experience With Alzheimer Patients

My service learning experience was a positive one. I had the opportunity to work at an Alzheimer's care facility, with patients exhibiting various stages of Alzheimer's disease. I learned through my interactions with older adults at the clinic that much like anyone else, Alzheimer's patients need stimulation, warmth, compassion and an environment that encourages interaction and relationship building.

My views of older adults have changed significantly since working with patients at the care center. Whereas in the past I might have assumed that all older adults were mentally less cognizant of their emotions and feelings and 'numb' to the world around them, I learned instead that many have a great compassion for caring, and many desire simply to enjoy much of the same things than anyone else would at their age. My experiences are described in greater detail below.

During the course of this internship I was able to engage in several prolonged activities with my mentor, Mr. Gary Williams, who was the principal of the school. The form of interaction I had with Mr. Williams involved a formal interview session with him, as well as a meeting near the end of the internship in which he helped to clarify a number of ideas for me related to one of the focuses of my activity, the exploration of the value of personal/professional relationships as related to promotions. Mr. Williams was instrumental in enabling me to revise my viewpoint on this issue, as were a pair of articles I read related to this subject including oof and Presswood's (2004) valuation of charisma as a key characteristic of leadership (p.3).

Having come of age during a time of widespread economic instability, myself and the generation of young adults who are my peers have been forced to recalibrate our collective expectations. The pursuit of personal profit, while en vogue during prior decades, has been revealed to be a ruse as the Great Recession rolls onward, and this revelation has compelled the youth of today to turn increasingly toward the realm of public service. With our nation suffering through a prolonged social malaise, it has become quite evident that the remedy can only be found through a willing return to our fundamental ideals.

Host Organization

During any internship problems are to be expected so the learning process may take place. One problem I encountered with the host is that they sometimes left the task completely up to us with the hope that we can solve everything ourselves without further guidance. Despite this great opportunity to take the job as our own and as a real working experience, most interns were not familiar with the correct procedures and became afraid of doing something wrong. Sometimes the host would surprise us and ask tough questions. Often we felt reluctant to ask questions due to our ignorance. This problem occured during the RRA event where we were required to send emails to all of the merchants. The host didn't gave us any email accounts to send those emails, thus we was wondering if we should use their official email account or make an new email account…… [Read More]

Internship Ethics

Words: 637 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 81023779

Ethics

In "After 'I'll Break You in Half,' Grimm Apologizes," heaton and Santora address the ramifications of ethical misconduct in the workplace. The issues addressed in this article pertain directly to the chapter on ethics in practice. The article describes Michael Grimm, a Tea Party Representative from Staten Island. He delivered "unusually vitriolic threats" to a reporter at the United States Capitol building, and the outburst attracted scorn (heaton and Santora). Since the outburst, Grimm has apologized, but the apology does not make up for the fact that the reporter's questions were related to a deeper type of ethical misconduct. In particular, Grimm is under investigation for campaign fundraising fraud. The allegations have thus far resulted in at least one arrest: that of Diana Durand "on charges that she illegally funneled more than $10,000 into his campaign," (heaton and Santora). At least one other member of Grimm's campaign fund raising…… [Read More]

This was achieved by the fact that college has allowed me to take 5 courses that are totally different from one another in each semester.

Individual Freedom:

One of the essential aspects in personal development and eventual self-fulfillment is individual freedom. College promotes the achievement of personal development and fulfillment through providing freedom that is quite liberating. In essence, the student has to make decisions independently regarding significant aspects of his/her education. This contributes to personal development since the person is taught how to make smart choices and concentrate on what is best for him/her. As there are numerous opportunities to explore, the individual must learn to make decisions without increased supervision from parents or teachers. As a result, the ability of a person to make decisions is tested through analysis of the effectiveness of these decisions, which results in individual growth and ability to determine self-fulfillment.

Impressions

Every time a person makes a transition into a new environment there is nervousness. I remember how anxious I was when I was going to middle school for the first time. I was leaving a small elementary school and moving into a school that had several times the number of students. Plus, I knew that I was going to be on my own much more here. I wouldn't be able to make as many mistakes or slough off on my homework assignments and projects. I found that out quickly enough when I went from classroom to classroom -- another big difference between schools, which took time management skills -- and each teacher had a different set of coursework schedules. Many of them said, "If you are a day late with homework, then you are docked." Not as lenient as elementary school!

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..

Formal Proposal -- my future in Informational Technology, my future in my internship at Benefit Concepts, Inc.

Why I want to take part in an internship -- the benefits of Benefit Concepts, Inc. For my education, and the benefits I can bring to Benefit Concepts, Inc.

It's time to come out of the comforting confines of studying information systems in the classroom and venture into the real world of information technology as it is deployed in the workplace. Much as I have been gratified regarding the technical expertise that I have gleaned over my years of education, I look forward to putting those ideas and my education as a whole into real and vital practice in the world of business and work. My internship with Benefit Concepts, Inc. would be an ideal way for me to do this. Not only would I have the benefit of receiving an education…… [Read More]

Over the course of my internship at Benefit Concepts, Inc., I will be responsible for processing the company's incoming and outgoing electronic eligibility files. The software tools I will be using to fulfill this function will include, but not be limited to, that of Microsoft SQL Server 2000, Access 2000, Data Junction 7.5, DOS, as well as the larger technical and informational resources of the World Wide Web. Of course, as a result of this experience I hope to become more technically proficient in all of these programs, and more fluent in the range of information available to someone in the discipline of computer technology on the Internet.

Additionally, given my responsibility for viewing and detecting problems regarding the company's outgoing and ingoing files into its variety of databases, I hope to become more aware of protective devices to insure that things run smoothly with as little impingement from viruses, worms, and other hacking devices regarding data storage and warehousing.

Thus, I hope to gain thus a greater knowledge and comfort level of the software applications I have learned over the course of my education, and a greater knowledge base in general of the field I hope to be entering after my fulfillment of my education, although of course the ever-changing world of computer science requires an individual to be a constant student in the field, no matter what his or her age. I wish to grow more fully cognizant of the field's current concerns and its current needs of potential and working employees. An internship at Benefit Concepts, Inc. would allow me to put the software applications I have learned about into practice. It would allow me to work independently and in the context of a team and to realize various group projects and strategies with the hopes of achieve the company's overall aims in an effective manner.

The intern wants a great deal of satisfaction that cannot be quantified -- exposure to training, the mentoring of his or her talents, and the sense of gaining a window into an industry to see how things work, and a foothold into a company where he or she will be treated with respect. "Training can also be the means for positive change in any organization; however, training is not enough to create lasting change without a vital link that will help your employees transfer what they learned into real-life application. That vital link is a strong coaching program" (Villegas & Villegas 2006). The intern must know that merit-based promotions are a realistic prospect for permanent employees, and that the company does not primarily solicit its management material from without, but mentors them from within.

Opportunities and Threats The University

Words: 580 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 16584947

Universities are often ranked by the strength or weakness of their graduate programs and the quality of original research the university is able to provide in certain fields of study. Furthermore, in addition to offering traditional graduate programs, the University offers an opportunity for those holding bachelors degrees to earn graduate certificates through work experience. This opportunity will be appealing to those students seeking post-graduate education but who need to work rather than being full-time graduate students.

The University's outside business partnerships also offer benefits to students. Most universities have outside business partnerships, such as vendor relationships with on-campus providers. However, the University goes beyond traditional vendor-relationships. It actively cultivates a wide variety of partnerships with businesses, which increases its access to research opportunities. Furthermore, these established relationships with corporations help increase internship programs and also promote the hiring of graduates. The influx of corporate money to the school helps…… [Read More]

I would say I was a solid B, if such grades existed in the field. I believe that I brought a lot of knowledge from my coursework, and throughout the course of the internship I was engaged in the process of learning how to apply that knowledge to fieldwork. I saw a lot of positive results, but there were also clients with whom I feel I could have made more of a difference. The point of internship is to learn about one's strengths and weaknesses, and I feel I learned that my greatest strength is in my book knowledge. I still need to work on applying that knowledge to real people and their complex situations, but I also have come to understand that comes with experience. Even some of my most experienced colleagues at Gateway admitted that they feel they still make mistakes, so I can take heart that we…… [Read More]

I will need to be "on" in terms of being relaxed and confident talking about myself while the interviewer attempts to get to know me.

If this interview was conducted face-to-face I think I would have actually performed better. I am more at ease dealing with interpersonal communications in a face-to-face context. Phones are not really my best medium for communication -- something I need to work on -- and so I probably came across as more nervous from the sound of my voice than if I was in person. The interviewer would probably have put me at ease, had I been able to read her body language, but talking to an electronic rectangle and not receiving any visual or audio feedback for long stretches was a bit disconcerting. Again, that is something I am going to have to improve to prepare for a future in health care marketing.

This was unlike my expectation. More or less, I had to hold on because I knew this chance was for my own good and increase in my academic credit was pegged on this.

Rather than whine about the situation, I decided to exercise patience and use the situation to my advantage by doing beyond what was expected of me. Just as I expected, my efforts did not go unnoticed as I was then trusted with greater duties.

Even though I had a weakness of not being a very social person, I learnt that I could work under intense pressure and with set targets ad timelines, that I am a good time manager, a quick learner. What stands out most was that team work is most important and that one should constructively accept criticism. One should also take the initiative to work ahead of the deadline.

Despite of a global economic recession, China surpassed Japan in GDP to become the second-largest economy. This is great news but it disguises the real impact of China's economic growth on social and political affairs in the country. Housing prices are so high that most young Chinese people cannot afford to buy even the smallest house. ncome disparity has grown between the rural poor and the comparatively wealthy urbanites. Compounding the problem are quality of life factors, such as water and air pollution.

It is a good thing for me that mathematics has always been my main strength. In elementary and junior school, I attended International Mathematical Olympiad training classes every weekend. Because I received much advanced training while young, I was enrolled in Mathematical Elite Class in high school and maintained excellent academic record. Therefore, I feel prepared to meet the challenges of a higher education that focuses on economics.

Instead of attending college right after graduating from high school, I took one year off for an internship. I wanted to see whether applied economics was what I expected as a career, and knew that this was an opportunity to meet people in the field and find out for myself. From September 2009 to June 2010, I did my first internship in XXXX Certified Public Accountants as a secretary. Although I only did some basic work, such as printing, filling expense accounts, and research, I actively consulted my colleagues and learned about IPOs, auditing, and capital assessment. More important, I had many opportunities to acquaint myself with hundreds of companies in diverse fields and provinces. I observed how these companies applied economic knowledge to their daily practice and business strategies. I learned how different economic policies affected markets in different areas.

Recognizing that the Chinese market economy still has a long way to go, I also know that the path forward will be a fascinating one and I want to be on its forefront. An advanced education in this program will prepare me to be one of China's leading future economists.

However, that would not make him happy. The perspective that I have gained in the internship class and in my previous experiences allowed me to recognize that Stephen is a more difficult case than some of my other clients have been. I decided that a softer approach would be more appropriate -- that by conditioning Stephen to accept his situation and become informed about the different options for him was the best approach to bringing Stephen into a career that he can carry for the rest of his working days.

Giftedness Is an Intellectual Ability That Is

Giftedness is an intellectual ability that is significantly higher than average, not a skill, but an innate talent and aptitude that may be general or specific. Just as there are special needs for children who appear on the left side of the bell curve, so should there be for children on the far right. However, these students are often neglected in terms of special programing due to beliefs that they can just do "extra work" within a mainstreamed environment. From the 1920s to the 1970s, the trend in Western countries was to set up special schools to educate those who fell outside the norms of the bell curve, but by the 1980s most educators favored merging special and regular education in a comprehensive program that included students from all backgrounds -- in other words, mainstreaming them into a regular classroom environment.

Interning at an Addiction Rehab Facility

Words: 890 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 70682373

Interning at a drug and alcohol addiction rehabilitation facility offers a tremendous opportunity to learn about psychological treatment methods, theories, and interventions. The experience also allows the intern to learn about healthcare management and administration, which entail their own research methods. One of the key things that an intern will learn in the rehabilitation center relates to research methods and methods of data collection. For example, we learn about the ethics of conducting research such as receiving informed consent. There are ample opportunities to conduct correlational and experimental studies in the clinical setting because of the fact that the patient population will in many cases already have been thoroughly assessed and diagnosed by psychologists. The patient status renders them a particular status in an any given research design, allowing for robust investigations of cause and effect.

Secondly, I believe I require further education in the field of public health to accomplish my goals in seeking to remedy the systemic abuses I have personally witnessed in my own, current capacity as a physician's assistant. These two crucial reasons combine and fuse in my desire to pursue a PhD at Walden in the field of public health.

Macro-level practice skill: Needs assessment

Conducting an effective needs assessment is a critical component of working as a sociologist. Needs assessment requires an understanding of the needs of the community which the agency is designed to serve. Methods of needs assessment will vary depending on the resources of the organization. In my case, it involved reviewing the relevant statistical data available from government agencies about the general population along with conducting more informal qualitative interviews of the community. Needs assessment may also entail a review of the relevant scholarly literature on different ways similar communities have been served. "Needs assessment is the formal process of identifying needs as gaps between current…… [Read More]

There are many different forms of needs assessment. This article first offers a working definition of needs assessment, followed by a recommendation for using the Organizational Elements Model which links "what organizations use, do, produce, and deliver to the value-added that all of these elements have on external clients and society" (Leigh et al. 2000). As well as the needs of the specific population being cared for, the interactions between the agency and the exterior world must also be addressed. Needs assessment must integrate all levels of the process of providing care, from the agency itself and beyond.

Epstein, M.H., Quinn, K., Cumblad, C., & Holderness, D. (1996). Needs assessment of community-based services for children and youth with emotional or behavioral disorders and their families: Part 1. A conceptual model. Journal of Mental Health Administration, 23(4), 418-431.

Meeting the needs of client populations that have multiple challenges, including emotional and behavioral disorders is essential. Providing care that does not meet all of the patient's need, or, conversely, is overly restrictive, can inhibit rather than promote healing. This article discusses the various components of such a needs assessment, suggesting a family-based and environmental strategy that is equally attuned to the external factors affecting the patient's state of mental health.

English -- the CV

Professional communication skills in English

Looking back over your portfolio and the course as a whole, what have you learned (about yourself/your strengths/weaknesses/the job application process/employer expectations/interviews etc.), and what ideas/information will you use in future internship and job applications? Why? (If you feel you have not learned anything, please explain why you feel that is, and explain what would have changed that).

One of the most important things I have learned this semester is the difference between casual and professional English. When communicating with English language speakers on a casual level, I often find it easy to be understood, provided that my intention is sincere. Friends are willing to overlook bad grammar and poor choice of vocabulary. I can restate what I mean, use body language and gestures, and laugh at my own lack of comprehension. During a job interview, however, an employer is assessing…… [Read More]

The road to becoming a physician

Overview of the profession

Physicians serve in many capacities, spanning from primary care physicians who see a wide variety of patients to specialists; from researchers to active practitioners in the field. However, one common, linking thread between all types of doctors is the care they must exhibit for the welfare of humanity and the arduous requirements for entry into the profession. The American Association of Medical Colleges notes that medical school itself (embarked upon after undergraduate school) is four years in duration (The road to becoming a doctor, 2013, AAMC: 3). Year one is devoted to normal structure of body tissue; year two to abnormal structure; year three and four are clinical years in which…… [Read More]

attending Blinn College and hope to soon transfer to Texas A&M University's school of Recreation, Parks, and Tourism Sciences. There, I believe I will be able to expand my knowledge in my chosen field of interest: resort and hotel management. My academic and personal history has prepared me for this transfer, as I have come to realize that narrowing my focus can help me achieve my goals.

born participator. That's why I've been involved with organized team sports since I was nine years old. My family and I were both surprised when my coaches decided to place me in a league two years higher than the one for my age group; I was playing with teenagers before I was ten. This early introduction to competition and teamwork remained with me throughout junior high and high school, for not a year has gone by that I have not been a member of a team. Basketball sparked my interest more than any other sport during my middle school years, and when I entered high school I was able to play for both junior and senior varsity teams. But even that wasn't enough; I was also the school football team's tight end. For many of my friends, it was either sports or schoolwork, and I know that some of them…… [Read More]

Why I Want to Get Into the Healthcare Profession

Words: 443 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 66779466

HealthCare Profession

Nursing is a strong tradition among the women of my family. I cannot remember a time when I did not have the drive to continue that tradition and enter the healthcare profession. The desire to put the welfare of others before my own was instilled in me as a child, and this combined with my natural drive to dedicate myself entirely to my goals made nursing an obvious career choice for me. Qualified nurses will always have an important role to play in the healthcare field, and in fact it is predicted that the need for these professionals will only increase with time. So not only is nursing an important part of my family tradition, and something about which I feel strongly, but it is also a good growth industry where I know that hard work will make me likely to succeed.

Ultimately, I would like to become…… [Read More]

This leads to the child being observed now getting neglected due to lack of attention. However, there is no malice intended. This is probably a situation where the parents just need a helping hand in the form of bill money and money for the mother. If the mother could get assistance with her medications and her treatment, then the child would be cared for at a much higher level. That all being said, Child Protective Services and other relevant agencies need to be involved in the process as the neglect of the child needs to be stopped right now.
