I have 5 years working in a library environment. I'm thinking of going to Drexel Universtiy but they offer a Master of Science in Library and Information Science (MS)
and Simmons offers a Master of Science in Library and Information Science.
I want to go to Drexel University but Simmons seems like it offers more. (MLS)
Which degree would be better? If I go to Drexel will I be able to apply for jobs as a library director in the future? I want to go to the school that allows me to be a library director.
I am a public librarian and was wondering if I have to have a degree to be a public library director. My boss is up for retirement in 3 years. I want her job. thanks!
I am only an assistant librarian, no degree required...
From a company, like Arriflex, Panivision etc. is it the directors job to get the equipment like that? I plan on shooting a short in super 16mm.
I want to work with children, and I really want to know which jobs involve interacting with kids. Please help me. I have a teacher and a pediatrician so far. Help. Please!
I'm a high school freshman. I'm going to be a film director but I'd like to know what I can do now to help me get there. There are no photography or media arts classes availiable at my school until senior year. I take a theatre workshop class now (I'm not sure if that helps). What can I do outside of school to get started? Also, are there any good filmmaking books that you know of?
I graduated last year and have limited work experience. I want to broaden my job search. I have a science major but can't really find entry level for my degree so I want to try out other jobs in the meantime (so I can go to grad school in a couple of years).
Im thinking of becoming a member but don't know exactly all the detail of how a credit union works. Will a credit union allow me to directly deposit my money from my paycheck to the credit union account? i recently got a job and don't understand a lot of how this works. Give as many details as you please.
Is it un-proffesional to send a portfolio to casting directors or is that what youre supposed to do? Don't make fun of me for not knowing.
So should I not send a portfolio to Casting directors if I'm not being represented by an agent?
My brother just graduated in June and is currently waiting tables. What sort of job employers would be looking to hire him?
If you're applying for a job in a private company, they usually don't ask you for a transcript; they just assume you're telling the truth when you say you graduated.
but if you're applying for a professorship in a college or university; Sometimes they do ask for your transcript.
If you're just applying for a part time teaching job in a liberal arts college......
Are they probably going to ask you for a transcript?
I'm 19 years old and I don't have a job due to being really shy. However, I would love to do some volunteer work to help others and be able to get out of my comfort zone. I've tried looking up volunteer work, but I haven't found anything. I love people and animals.
Where can I find some local volunteer work? What website?
So, I do not know what I want to go to college for. I'm not sure if I should go to a trade school, a university, I have NO direction in life, UGH. The only two careers that appeal to me are acting and writing( not journalism at a newspaper, btw). Those are the only two things I am always completely set on. Everything else I am constantly changing because my mom wants me to find a "stable" job. I went from wanting to be a lawyer to a nurse to a bank manager to a language teacher. You get the picture. All of those things I could NEVER picture myself spending the rest of my life doing or even going to school for. Seems like such a waste of time.
I have a real love for cinema. I am a HUGE movie buff. HUGE. Books and movies are my two favorite topics. The thing is I have never taken an acting class before or have been in a drama club. I do not know where to start if I want to be an on screen actress. I just want to be in movies like the ones that have shaped me into the person who I am today. I feel like they have played such a huge part in my life. The characters are a part of me...
Do you have any tips and advice on how to get started? I thought about taking acting classes maybe at school. I googled acting classes in my area but they were all so expensive!!!
I know you need an ALS accredited Masters in Library Science, but can you choose what subject you want to focus on for your bachelor's? I want to get my bachelor's in Multimedia or Graphic Design, as that is what I am interested in, but I am also interested in becoming a librarian in the future. Help Please!
I think I might want to take up a job somewhere in the publishing industry. But I don't know what they all do. I'm good at spelling and grammar, and have a good taste in writing.
I'm an elementary teacher with licensure for K-6 and gifted K-12. I want to further my options within the field. I have the opportunity to take over a position as media specialist at another elementary school. In taking this I will have to get my master's in library science. My other option is to stay with elementary another year and get my national board certification, and in another year start a master's in reading education. I'm really torn between the two and need to give an answer to the superintendent of human resources within the next couple of days. What would you do?
I really have wanted to be a film maker for years now. I know how to edit videos, ive been doing it for about 2 years or more now, but I want film and edit films, and make them too. I want to major in film making. I am kind of worried about how I am going to get paid. If I could support my self with the amount.
what are the different jobs in the film industry? how much do you get paid for each?
I really love wine and I want to get a job working in the wine industry.
I would like to go to school but I need my own place. I am sleeping on my mom's floor and have lived with bed bugs for a year. I cannot stand it anymore. I need a another job. I know there is work study and you get money back from school if you are on financial aid but other than that I am not sure if that would help me at all.
I have a Bachelors with a double major in Political Science and Urban Studies and a Master in Urban Planning with an emphasis on community development (social and economic aspects of urban planning). I got the masters in 1997. I have had no more formal university education in 10 years and I am in my mid-30s. I have been working in the affordable housing industry as a staff assistant, property manager and administrator.
I had always planned to pursue my education further and family and friends thought the same, but I got to eat and pay bills. I've always had a thirst for knowledge and research and finding out things for either the sake or learning or to apply it to something. I got my masters straight after getting my bachelors, so I had been in school 6 straight years after high school, so some associates joked about me not been in the real world. Now, after 10 years in the real world, I now have the ironic opposite problem of trying to find the best way to get back into "academic" shape. Heck, I've only been to the public library three times since getting my masters. I do have lots of practical continued education related to my job or keeping up with standard office software and do have a lot of books from my own library that I read, however.
These are some options I'm exploring:
(1) Take some classes at local state university and/or through distance education colleges to get study habits back and strenthen transcript (it is possible, though not necessarily an absolute goal that I could get second bachelors from this route from a college like Excelsior), then pursue PhD
(2) Pursue the MBA, then pursue PhD
(3) Pursue Masters Degree in another area such as economics or geography that complements my previous education on the political science and urban studies side, then pursue PhD
Back 10 years ago when I was still in grad school, the professor who was my advisor had suggested to me that I go to an MBA program. I had not thought about going to get an MBA before, but he saw that I had loaded up my urban planning coursework with electives in social statistics and economics (he knew I could have taken a lot easier courses). He wanted me to consider going to a place like Wharton. He felt that the combination of a masters in urban planning and an MBA would be a dynamic combination for someone interested in community development. I considered that, but like I said, I need to eat and since I came from very modest means (poor), I needed to work. I am was already in debt trouble, so I wasn't interested in taking on more student loans and will not ever take out any more student loans (and I intend to self-finance any future education and/or pursue any available grants).
Now that I've been out for so long, not only am I academically rusty but I've also lost contacts with potential recommenders (a few of whom have since passed including my graduate advisor). So as I see it, at the minimum I need to take a few college courses just to make sure I still got the touch, as well as for the regular business of getting recommenders and strengthening my transcript.
I anticipate that the pursuit of the PhD in my situation will be a 8-12 year project. I'm now in my mid-thirties, so I would hope to have the PhD completed by the time I'm in my early to mid-forties. I expect to start my comeback with a course this Fall. For the next year or so, I expect to stay enrolled continuously either in a traditional course or distance education course.
I am 16 years old and i want to get a summer job, i live in NYC and i was thinking that i would like to get a job somewhere calm and quiet, so i think a library would be nice. but i really dont know how old do i have to be to work there. feel free to let me know other places where it would be good to work at my age.
