My wife is getting a masters in Public Administration, but she is getting disheartened by her friends earning money while she just spends it. Will it pay off in the end or would it be better to earn experience in a certain field?
I've been applying for jobs everywhere, since April. I graduated with a degree in Business Administration, - Management. I'd like to get a job in HR, finanace, or pretty much anything business (except sales). I've been networking, as much as I can/know how, and applying to positions online. What else can I do to get a job! I'm a hard working, smart guy, and idk how to show that to people. Any suggestions on how to get a job?!?
Please state whatever you think is beneficial for me. Also, any website that may better explain the process. In addition, I live in Tennessee, do you believe I can find a job here rather than going to New York City or Charlotte?
Is true that in the second year you can make around $100,000?
Is Ameriprise a good company to start with?
What good-paying jobs could i get? i wouldn't want anything where i travel a lot, or where i have to live in a certain area.
Hello everybody. I am currently a senior in high school graduating in June. I don't know what I want to major in college. I most definitely have an intent of going for a 4-year degree. I narrowed my choices as followed: Criminal Justice, Political Science, Accounting, Marketing. I picked Criminal Justice because law enforcement and the legal system seems very interesting and exciting to me. I picked Political Science because I enjoy learning about politics, government, international/foreign affairs. I picked Accounting just because I heard it was easy finding employment. I picked Marketing because it seems like an interesting field with lots of diversity. I just want to have a secure job after college. My biggest fear is being unemployed with a Bachelor's degree. I am a very motivated person because I am the first to attend college in my whole family and I really do want to succeed in life. Which path should I take? I do not plan on going to Graduate school/getting a Master's degree for personal reasons so which one of these majors would have the best chance of landing a secure job with just a 4-year degree (pay isn't as important to me, I care more about job security). If anybody from these 4 majors could possibly tell me some tips or advice, that would be wonderful. I am just glad I have narrowed my choices down because I have some friends who can't even decide and they are in college. Thanks! :)
So, I'm about to enter college, I'm in my highschool senior year and I was hoping you could clear some doubts about my possible, future degree.
I'm thinking about graduating in International Relations (as well as learning an additional language or two while I'm at it) and I'm a bit worried about job prospects, I know about all the Public Sector/ Government Jobs like: Intelligence, Diplomacy, Immigration Control, Foreign Policy analyst, etc.
Thing is, I was born in Portugal, Europe and I've always wanted to move to either the United States or Australia and it's almost impossible to get a Greencard/Permanent Resident visa if you apply for Government jobs there without Citizenship. So, here's my question:
Can I work in the Private Sector (Companies, Multinational Corporations,etc) or some other sector other than Government with an IR Degree? And if so, what kind of jobs are available in that sector with this particular Degree?
I've heard about NGO's, do you know any that work on American and Australian soil? Even if the pay is low, it's a way to secure a temporary job and gain legal entry to the country. Please focus on my main question though.
Thank you all for your time.
Last June, as Newsbusters readers will remember, ABC allowed President Obama to pitch his health care proposal in a special edition of ABC's Primetime hosted by retiring World News anchor Charlie Gibson and (now incoming anchor) Diane Sawyer. Obama was given additional airtime to pitch his health care agenda that evening on Nightline.
Conservatives didn't get equal time.
Worse, ABC News even refused to allow the conservative group Conservatives for Patients Rights to purchase paid advertising to put out an alternative perspective.
Immediately afterward, the National Center for Public Policy Research (full disclosure: which I work for) began a multi-month review of the commercials run on World News. We found something interesting.
In the 98 broadcast days of ABC World News advertising logged by National Center Executive Director David Almasi and analyzed by Policy Analyst Matt Patterson, ABC's World News broadcast featured 1,102 commercials, 597 of which were placed by member companies of the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) trade association, representing 54.17 percent of total commercials aired.
PhRMA very aggressively supports President Obama's health care agenda.
David Almasi doesn't think it's a coincidence.
"It's clear that World News relies on the members of PhRMA to sponsor it," Almasi says. "Ford and Proctor and Gamble are reliable sponsors, but the overwhelming amount of paid ads were for drugs pushed by the members of this very powerful and very political trade association. Ad after ad on World News comes from members of the drug lobby group PhRMA. It's almost laughable how many ads they run each day. If they were to stop, it would seem doubtful the broadcasts could continue."
Says Matt Patterson, who analyzed and wrote a report on the findings, "ABC News seems to have a significant financial stake in the success of ObamaCare. Should we be surprised that they hand over an hour to Obama to promote his plan, while shutting out opposing views?"
"There was not one day in which the members of PhRMA were not major advertisers on World News," Almasi adds. "It's hard to believe that the producers of the program don't have this on their minds when they are selecting the issues they cover. CBS burned off the series Swingtown two summers ago because the network found advertisers weren't interested... NBC cancelled Southland before the second season even aired because of concerns the show... would be unacceptable to advertisers. The concerns of advertisers do drive content. With so many PhRMA members sponsoring World News, it would be hard not to think that people at the network are always mindful of who is paying their bills. PhRMA makes no bones about its support for ObamaCare, and PhRMA's member companies appear to be the lifeblood of ABC's flagship World News program."
Patterson recalls something Newsbusters readers won't have forgotten: White House Communications Director Anita Dunn attacked the legitimacy of Fox News in October and White House Senior Advisor David Axelrod said of Fox's news programming, "it's really not news." Patterson notes that the White House has shown no similar concern for objectivity at ABC: "ABC appears willing to turn over large chunks of its news programming to a politician, if that politician is backed by companies representing more than half of their advertisements. And for the President, it seems it's OK for a news organization to support a point of view - so long as it's his."

6. Could a person get promoted in this proffession? If so, how?
7. What classes would be helpful to take in high school to prepare to become a CFO?
Thanks in advance to everybody who answered! :)
First, the problem:
"More than 1 in 8 children, 13 ?were in a family living in poverty in 2008, up from 12 ?he previous year, according to...“New Jersey Kids Count 2010.”
Poverty is defined, for a family of 4, as households living on $21,000 per year or less.
N.J.'s high housing costs put pressure on low-income families (defined as those below double the poverty level, or $42,000 in annual income for a family of 4).
In N.J., 82 ?f children living in low-income families came from families whose housing expenses exceeded 30 percent of income, which is typically the maximum recommended for housing costs. That 82 ?igure in '08 was 16 ?oints higher than the national average, according to the report. It was also 2 percentage points higher than in '07 or in '04"
So what does Republican Messiah Chris Christie propose?
The Christie administration is expected to propose cutting the maximum income level of Medicaid from $24,645 to $5,317 a year for a family of 3, said Ray Castro, senior analyst for New Jersey Policy Perspective...who was briefed by administration officials. State officials confirmed the figure.
"That is about 1/3 of the poverty level," Castro said. "That means that an uninsured parent working full time at a minimum-wage job wouldn’t be eligible. … A parent who works half-time for minimum wage wouldn’t even qualify.
"Unfortunately, the only way these parents can become eligible for health coverage in the future is if the parent applies for and is eligible for welfare," Castro added.
The change would drive up charity care, the uncompensated care hospitals provide to people without insurance, Vitale said, and leave people hanging until 2014, when the federal health care reform law is expected to provide states a cash windfall to cover people without insurance.
"I can’t imagine how it could be any worse," (Joseph) Vitale said.
"I guess they could freeze enrollment for children, but that would only buy them a ticket to hell.’’
Doesn't this type of radical solution encourage families to quit working and go on the public dole?
After all, if you do the right thing and work, but can't afford insurance for your children, but cannot get assistance with with insurance...you can just not work, get on welfare and get full coverage.
Is this fiscally, ethically, and morally responsible? Can budget woes really be an excuse to kill assistance for working families?
Like Men> Does that make it acceptable? American children should never go without health care coverage. This could have wide-ranging catastrophic effects, not only on the health of kids, but on the economy of NJ. What happens when uncompensated hospitals and charities are flooded with these cases?
