That offer clerical/secretarial work that do not require a college a degree and respect four years of service in the USAF as something equivalent to that of a college degree? I live in an extremely liberal town near two colleges and they appear to not show any indication of hiring a veteran here in North Carolina.
What are some good sites to apply for and what are the qualifications for veterans preference?
I have a product that would tailor to the commercial side of insurance. More specifically companies with fleet vehicles. I want to talk to insurance companies to see if their customers equip their fleets with my product that they would the offer them a discount. That would help me get sales, help the insurance company have their customers carrying a safety device, and save the fleet owners money. Who in an insurance agency would I talk to for instance Liberty Mutual?
I'm a sophomore business major, but in college I've begun to take more of an interest in biology and science. I've been considering combining my business education with something in the medical field, but I don't see anything that really relates.
I'd like to find something that I could double major/minor in that would help me get involved with the growing medical field. I've considered nursing, but it seems exclusive (ie. either you're an RN or an accountant - not both). Is there any way I could relate a business degree to the medical field?
When my family was getting heaps of things done to our house (pool, deck, fence, shed) we found the tradesmen were really unreliable. They would do things like: turn up late, not turn up at all (and they wouldn't even ring to tell us these things, we had to ring them) and take longer then said. Now our friends are also having trouble like us!
anyone had these problems before?
I'm doing a project about the importance of computers in the workplace. These questions seems like simple to me but my teacher wants sources and I couldn't find good ones.
Some questions are;
- Why computers are important in the workplace?
- When did computers became so important in the workplace?
- How are computers changing the workplace and the way people work?
- What are some advantages and disadvantages of computers in the workplace?
Some questions are so obvious but I need sources or it won't be marked :/
I just started working in the office at a construction company. I am totally confused on how it all works. The bidding, the estimating, the forms, permits, even the work itself. I don't understand it at all. It would make my job alot easier if I knew how it all works. Can anyone explain the business to me so that I will understand better? I would appreciate it so much!!
For those who are lucky to have a ‘seat on the bus' -- reports are that job satisfaction is low. Like most companies, decisions have been made to drive out cost and increase efficiencies.
I work for a large (F500 company) and have volunteered to help improve how our immediate team of 150+ recognize and reward each other. We are geographically disbursed (approx 40?S/60 outside US) and some work in business offices and others work from home offices.
I have volunteered to participate in a dedicated task force to explore improving recognition and reward (outside of salary & stock which is mandated by corp and competitive practices).
Specifically, my small committee and I are interested in reward & recognition best practices which are considered effective and valued, especially given current business climates.
Recognition is personal and individual, we're digging into understanding how *do* individuals in the organization appreciate being recognized and rewarded (in addition to actually having a job?) What makes you feel recognized by your company/peers? What's important to you?
Goal here is to use suggestions as brainstorm stimuli for the team and perhaps will lead to a ‘toolbox’ for peer and mgmt to use.
Lastly, if you have any resources & best practices...would welcome info/links/resources!
Thank you very much in advance!
No solicitations please.

Today I was called back from a job that I recently interviewed at to come in and sign a release form for a background check. I read the paper before I signed it and it stated that I am giving permission to this employer to do a background check on me. I put my social on it and then i signed it. Then the manager gave me the bottom portion of this paper. When I read it I became very confused because I do not undestand if they are going to do the background check or did they have me sign the paper just in case they need to do it in the future.
This is what the paper says:
Please be advised that a consumer report or an investigative consumer report may be obtained from a consumer reporting agency for the purpose of evaluating you for employment, promotion, reassignment, or retention as an employee. This report may conatin information bearing your credit standing, credit capacity, character, general reputation, personal characteristics, or mode of living from public record sources or through personal interviews with your neighbors, friends, or associates. Prior to procuring such a report, you will receive an authorization form from ______ company requiring your signature.
Now I am confused, did the paper I signed today give them permission for the consumer report or will i be asked to sign another paper when they do the actual background check. And nothing on this paper says that they will be checking education or criminal background. Will that be included too?
I was laid off in March and since then I have sent out literally hundreds of resumes and completed hundreds of applications yet so far I haven't even had so much as an interview. I'm getting scared as the money is running out and I have no job in sight. Its like I'm being rejected out of hand. I live in a large city (Cincinnati) and I can't understand why I can't find a job in such a big place. Could it be a problem with my resume? Please review and tell me if there's a problem.
To work to the height of my potential in order to better
serve my employer. By using the skills I have acquired
through my college education and past job
experience I will be an added asset to my employer.
Included in this resume are details about my professional
and educational experience. If you require any more
information, or have any questions at all, please feel free
to contact me at the number listed above. Thank you for your time.

My parents are expats that's why some of the experience is in different countries. Also there is a photo of me on it (not in a suit, just me from the shoulders up in a leather jacket and looking into the Camera)
I'm working in Melbourne, Australia actually on a working holiday visa. That's why I'm so frustrated, it's supposed to be easy to get a job here since they are going through a boom at the moment.
the Dear Sir/Madame thing is my cover letter not the resume itself but yeah it's the first thing they see.
Try to make this short:
-Im an LPN student basically in the first quarter. I have a 3.8 GPA
-Im 24 and my previous work history since I was 18 has been in the Industrial field (factory work). Very good at whatever I do.
I currently work at a world known hospital as a Transporter (transport patients within the hospital Example: Take patient from their room to CT or where ever by stretcher, wheelchair or by their bed.
I Do not have class again until April. In the meantime I have just started working Extra Duty as a Patient Care Technician AFTER I get off my regular job.
((I work 1:30pm - 10pm then change into scrubs and head down to my floor))
Here is what i am getting at: I know Im ultimately trying to become an RN and maybe a Doctor. BUT... Inside-I feel as though I am wasting my time going for LPN and that there is something on a greater scale that I can make the most difference in and that is more me. It is in the medical field but im not sure what it is yet..... anyone offer any advice or whatever.
I am through to a final interview for GM at a well known pub chain which is part of a public traded company. I have been general manager of several independent bars in and around London for ten years but have been made redundant two months ago - this is my only interview and I really need this job. I have done very well at the interview so far but they are concerned as I don't have experience of working in a public traded company. I have to admit that, although I am very keen to learn, I don't have this experience. I have been asked to put together a business plan for the next 3, 6 and 12 months. I have got so many ideas about what to do on a local level but need to include something relevant to working for a public traded company. Does anyone know what a public traded company would be looking for in this time frame that I can include?
Thanks for any help.
My husband just received a letter from a collections agency stating that he owes money, ALOT of money, to some apartment complex. According to them this happened 2 years ago, the thing is that's not my husband. He's never had an apartment or signed for anyone. They say they have all his information including his social and in order to get this "debt" taken care of he has to have proof that it's not him. We have been building our credit since we were in our teens and last time we checked our credit score it was excellent, it gets me mad that we worked so hard to just let some @$$ (excuse my language) come and mess it up for us. We have the name of the apartments and we did notice that they are close to where he (my hub) works, we're thinking maybe it was someone from work but how could they access ALL his information when the manager there is my husband? This is driving us crazy because the collection agency ppl are being jerks and are not helping us at all (I guess that's their job) can someone help me? What can I do to avoid this from ruining our/his credit and jeopardizing us in getting more credit/stuff/things?
I want to pursue Certified Compensation Professional and Global Remuneration Professional certifications. I am aware that these are offered in USA. However, is there an affiliated body/society which provides these certifications in India? Kindly help.
