If you are looking to get a job where you can express creativity, spend your senior year creating an online portfolio. Get this portfolio up and running so that you can add that to your resume for employers to see.
The “employed” buddies tend to mask their envy of you in newer cars and lunches they don’t have to cut into bite-sizes for their lunch-mates. They do have more “things” than you, except one very intangible object; time watching their children grow. This factor is probably the most underrated and precious commodity in the work world. Sure, some places have “on-site” childcare, but that’s still lacking compared to kickin’ it at home with your mini-me’s.
If your school has a career center, not only check the listings, make a point of getting to know the staff and career consultants. Let them know what you’re looking for and ask for tips and advice, contacts, or mentors. Make a statement and build your credibility so that you are at the top of their minds for opportunities that come up and that they are able to refer. Do the same with head hunting companies.
5) Job Boards – Yes most job boards are free but some cost money to join or to upgrade services. Better to try the free services first before you spend several hundred dollars on something that gives you the same results.
The Joblink Center is a great resource for resume help as well as computers for job search use, help with job searches and access to training. Best of all, most of the services offered at the Joblink are free. Also, ask the HR person at your previous job for resume tips and what they look for in a resume. You may also have friends that you could ask to review your resume to get an outsiders perspective.
Coming into school I knew that i wanted my major to be environmental science. I know myself and my passion for the outdoors it seems like the perfect fit. Now with that said it is a physical science major. With that title I have to be sufficient in at least one of the major physical sciences of biology, ecology, chemistry, or physics. It so happened that mine was chemistry. Now this is not the easiest subject in the world to do well at, but it is not impossible. The key things to remember would be to stay motivated and to not lose sight of the end goal at hand; to graduate successfully with a GPA to be satisfied with.
Student jobs in your major are as easy to find as those that do something different. The first place to check is in your campus human resource department. Often they have a variety of jobs on campus that relate to a lot of different topics.
Here’s my beef. This weight reduction cannot possibly be simply the result of cutting out salt. Chef Bacigalupo has 3 major reasons to change a lot more than that and they are called 3 heart attacks. That would be sobering for anyone. I am willing to bet that he has also done a lot to cut sugar and trans fats from his diet, which are the other major culprits that work toward bad nutrition and health. I think that this project is great and applaud that it is drawing awareness to better cooking alternatives. I would just hope that this attention focuses on a lot more than salt.
