I'm not sure what college you graduated from, but in the real world experience weights more than a piece of paper stating you've completed few written assignments and imaginary projects.
I've just recently started working for a new call center and it's been difficult adjusting because of the work culture that our team leaders show. This is how difficult they are:
1. We get tons of calls everyday and when you go on aftercall work mode even for just a few seconds to breathe & rest your mouth, the nearest team leader would tell you to go auto-in a the loudest voice he/she can muster for the whole prod floor to hear.
2. We are highly discouraged to go on bathroom breaks during shifts even if its bioligically impossible to dictate ones bladder to go and p*e now even if it doesn't want to!
3. They tell us to hold our lunch breaks if there are more than 60 call waits. Plus, they tell us to log-in early if there are 4 call waits even if your shift is not supposed to start yet. You can always say no but expect to be given the cold shoulder later on and be branded as someone who's uncooperative.
4. They put you in a queue you're not trained for. So you end up supporting a product you don't know or know little about. If you complain about the insuffecient training and NOT the extra job, you're branded as the difficult member of the team.
With those things said, I know for a fact that comparing your present team leads with your previous ones is not really helping. I consider myself an assertive person however with how they tend to behave, it's hard to talk to them for fear of being humiliated or worse, backstabbed. With my team's bottled up frustrations, we ended up gossipping about them w/c isn't right and at the same time healthy. Just thinking about how we dissed the team leaders behind their backs leaves me feeling miserable and disgusted whenever I get home from work and alone.

I think I will work on the certificates, then once I can get in the door of an IT position, work towards my degree... Just want to get in the door so I can learn while working towards a Degree. Hoping Certificates can get me in the door though!
I am wanting to start up a web based company. Number of employees: 0. I will register the company as a Ltd. however, I may know all there is to know about this web based company, but I don't understand the laws.
I am unable to work due to a disability. I currently get help (money) from the state to live on. However, I was able to work for some time till it got too much and have a little put by. I am currently getting Disability living allowance and Income support. I do not work, but as I have a little bit of money put away, I would like to use this and start up a web business.
I know what I need to do, to sell the products, but I don't know the taxes, however this can be overcome with an accountant.
I need to know, if I start up this company, will I need to inform the job centre that I am doing this? I plan to put 100?ack into the company to make it expand, however I need every penny from the state, for example, I need specialist things made to help me get around. These are not cheep, they cost nearly £500 for 1 leg, I need 2, thats nearly £1,000, this is not including the other 4 areas where I need to spend big on.
However, this is just a start of my years ahead. I now say, enough is enough. I want to use the money I have saved up to start a business so I can look forward to a brighter future, but I can not lose the benefits... what is my best solution?
I have problems with the following, both big toes, ankle ligaments and tendons don't work, this means that I walk for a few meters and I fall over. If I stand still it feels like my knee is going to snap, this is due to weakening ligaments to the knees. However physio wanted me to force myself to walk like normal people do. I walk with my feet pointing either behind my, left leg pointing at 8 and the right leg pointing at 4 (yes, this is the easiest for me) I also walk with my legs pointing at 10 and 2. As the physio wanted me to walk with both feet pointing 12, this has caused more problems with my hips and now lower back. I spend most of my days in bed as I can not move due to too much pain.
This is why I want to set up a company now, so I have a future to look forward to, something I am good at... which this is perfect.
I am told this problem will be with me for life, unless I get 2 surgery options. These are 5-10 years away at the moment, as I am too young, I am in my lower 20's.
I was set to student teach this coming fall... but due to a not so sudden change of heart.. i have decided to back out.
I do want to do something with children, just not teach them. I was thinking something with child psychology ... is there something that I can use all the classes I took for student teaching so I don't have to graduate way later? I was supposed to graduate this december... if I change my major Id like to try and be done by next may. I have already taken so many child education courses... maybe if i take a bunch of psych classes i can be done by then.
heres my question though, im not sure what jobs/careers that deal with children psych are called? If you have a helpful site with a list of jobs and job descriptions relating to children that would be perfect!! or maybe if you have personal experience. I just don't know what my options are!
