Pursuing a degree in business has been a lifelong dream. Understanding the concepts, formulas, and processes necessary to be effective and accurate weather it was a personal business or a corporation that offered employment is a goal that has been on the “to do” list for many years. When the opportunity to take this class presented itself, thinking twice about it was not an option. However, prior to taking this class the assumption was made that it was going to be just another math class that was a speed bump on the way to the ultimate goal of achieving the MBA. Six weeks later it has been proven over and over again that the prior assumption was completely wrong.
However, within that next year or two, I remained committed to professional development and training. I left the Leadership course eager to research what set of skills or background experience I could acquire while still in a K-12 setting. This brought me to a comment Dr. Hirsch had made regarding the challenges facing community college leaders: limited funds and decreasing budgets. With diminishing budgets, writing grants and securing outside funding is a skill that is highly desired at many higher education institutions. By September of 2015, I enrolled in the course, “Grant Writing for Profit and Non-Profit Industries.” By the end of the year, I had written my first grant for the Prudential Foundation.
I did not know a lot about this job before I started my research. I did not even know what the best degrees were to become a foreign affairs officer. I knew that I had to do a lot of investigation to acquire what I wanted to know and find out. I decided that I wanted to pursue the knowledge of how I could become a foreign affairs officer and how the Great Recession of 2008, caused a great deal by over speculation and compelled people today to have lower expectations and save more, affected my specific job and what the opportunities of getting that profession were tout de suite. The Story of My Search My inquiry took about a week and a half to find all of the information I was looking for.
I got paid 9.50 an hour, while I was in training as an overnight stocker; though my training took place in the day time. I thought that this was going to be and easy job. I have never been so wrong in my life. Once I had finished some computer work, which was the last part of my training, I reported to the night time shift manager to confirm with them that I was indeed done with training. They gave me a pat on the back and told me to get to work right away.
In November, 2010, the organization was set to undergo a triennial audit to become reaccredited as a law enforcement agency. Approximately two years prior to this I was hired to collect, analyze, and prepare documentation to help the agency achieve this goal. The document files had set idle for a year as my manager, who was in the position prior to me, was promoted to a management position. Within my first year of employment I knew it was going to take additional personnel to achieve this lofty goal. In March, 2010, I approached my manager regarding the amount of overtime I had been working to complete the files.
They both graduated with their bachelor’s degree in accounting and they meet each other while attending college. Mrs. Rodriguez first began the aspect of this career when she was only 18 years old. She started working part-time in an accounting office around tax season. She mentioned It was a good job to have because she was recently out of high school and wanted to make money. She said that from January to April she would work 5-6 days a week and 8 - 12 hours days.
ACE 341 has been one of my favorite classes that I have taken and I feel that it has greatly increased my general knowledge of financial planning. When we first wrote about our career objectives on the first day I realized I had very little information and no experience in financial planning. At that time, I had decided I wanted to attend graduate school and obtained my CFP right after school, while all the information was still fresh in my mind. The only thing I could think to write for my first job objective was to get a summer internship with any company even closely related to financial planning. My long term goal was to work as a partner for a big financial planning group such as Merrill Lynch and my ideal internship was to work at
I was a jr phone sales opener in a call center for about a year in my mid twenties. Coming into to this position I was expecting to learn a lot more about business, sales and marketing then I knew at the time. I left that place (before they eventually went belly up) feeling half empty headed. I believe it was due to the consistent and very much overwhelming affiliative leadership. It's not like it was coming from just one or two supervisors.
I took a taxi and began the trip. The following day, which was Monday, I had to go to the client’s office, almost without knowing about the operation. I started wondering if it had been a good decision to go there. After two weeks, I was working a lot, as if I had been there for 5 months, thanks to the Technical Support & Professional Service team backing me up all the time. Last but not least, the support of the customer helped too.
I worked as an intern at several automotive firms and interacted with experts who had invaluable experiences which would be never taught at university where my classmate preferred to pass their courses without perceiving the importance of the relationship between science and industry. At the third summer of my bachelor, I was selected as the best intern among thirty students and first female who had allowed to work at the one of best-known companies in my country (Steel M Co); where provided me with the golden opportunity to become accustomed to problems of big steel companies and try to investigate their solutions in a creative way. At the following year, as a senior bachelor I had been chosen as one of the fifteen young researchers from governm... ... middle of paper ... ...d to continue my education at my own country and struggle with gender limitation to get my own rights. Choosing Gorge Mason University to reach my purposes is the first step of this long learning journey.
