My boyfriend is going to be graduating from the Stratford School of Aviation Maintenance techs. in December of this year. (Connecticut, USA)
He currently works at an airport as a line service tech. (Fueling and cleaning the airplanes to ready them for take off/servicing them after they land). He has been at this job for 1 1/2 years.
He was going to stay with the company in which he currently works, however he thinks that getting a job at Sikorskys would be more beneficial (Pay more, better benefits, etc...).
Does anyone know the pro's/con's of working for sikorskys?
I use to think this when I first was going to college, but I don't fall for that line anymore. So many colleges try to entice students to sign up with the slogan "you learn more you earn more" which really isn't true in the real world. I know many people with masters degrees who are unemployable or working for a boss who just has a high school education. My cousin almost has his law degree from a well respected school and can not find a job anywhere when he graduates. So basically he will have a law degree and be unemployable.
It seems how well you perform in the work place means a lot more then how many diplomas and certifications you can hang on your wall.
I can't find the answer anywhere else,
so if you answer I would be EXTREMELY grateful.
So I've been going to school for mechanical engineering the past 2 years and I'm starting to question if I actually want to go into it. I mean I do kind of, but as far as a job. I love working with my hands and solving problems. I like working with machines and building things. I want an engineering degree (or the likes) that doesn't sit at a desk designing and thinking about ideas about stuff, I want to be on the front lines working with the stuff. What is a good career choice or another degree direction i can go for?
I can't find the answer!
I'd be so thankful if you answer.
Mr. Feuchtwanger is a controversial piano teacher.
I have heard opinons, both good and not so good about him.
But the most important would be to know if he has had excellent students (results count a lot!)
His fee, unfortunately, seems to be ultra-expensive, so he is perhaps more accesible in Master Classes.
Have you heard of him or seen him in Master Classes?
Its probably a stupid question, but I'm finding that I can get the part much cheaper online than at the shop. I can't install them myself because I don't have the tools too. If I bring it to a shop will the do it for me?
On a $1200 monthly budget *rent, food, gas, pet food, utilities, phone, and some for the bank* I'd need to make a take-home pay of $7.50/h, which would require *at minus 20?or taxes* roughly $9.40/h gross pay.
I have my GED, will be 18 by the time I'm ready to move out.
What should I seriously look into to possibly make that? No, I'm not expecting to go out, apply, and automatically get a job with that much pay, but is there any training I can get into to get there soon?
Pet food $35
Also, anyone in Tucson that knows the cost of living and such, did I over/underestimate anything on that list? I hope to not pay that much rent, but if I want a 2br anything that's what I think I'm looking at. Electricity is a worst-case-scenario in the budget... I hope.
Im not sure which class to take, because i like them both
I have been put into a group in my english class where we have to act out the life of a gamma from the book Brave New World, but the book doesnt give much information on them. Any ideas?
i been working is this company for 6 years an still do not have a healt insurance this is in new york
Would unemployment be higher or lower now? State your reasoning.
Up until this point, I've been worrying about the quality of education, if I meet the academic requirements, environment, so on, when choosing which colleges/universities to apply to. I've realized that the majority of my Common App list, as well as my non-common app applications are either private universities(below 30 in ranking) or out of state public schools with high out-of-state tuition. The only parent of mine who is able to contribute to college at all makes less per year than the tuition of almost all of these colleges(15-20k per year.)
So I'm worried that even with a large financial aid package I won't be able to pay the remainder. Can somebody please tell me how this all works? For example, I was looking at a few on my list with the most tuition as well as pretty high financial aid packages: Cornell, and Carnegie Mellon for example. They have total cost per year in the 50k+ but also seem to have an average financial aid of 30-40k. Even if I received that average financial aid(I expect more with my extremely low-income situation) however, I'm worried that I won't be able to pay the extra 10-15k. The problem is though, that there isn't much of a difference it seems in the universities that cost less from these expensive ones, they have a total cost of 30-40k, but reward less financial aid. Basically, I have absolutely no money for college, and while I qualify and probably will be accepted by one or likely a few of these very nice universities, I'm afraid that I won't be able to pay anything. I was always under the impression that I could make up for whatever I don't get in grants with loans, but looking at some information it is the case that student loans are limited by the university in their financial aid package? Are there any other financial aid options than directly from the university? Is it too late for me to look into scholarships?(I'm a senior graduating 2012) What about work arrangements that will decrease my tuition?
Basically what I'm asking is how this financial aid works, so that if these colleges are too expensive for me, I can choose a different less expensive list of options, before I apply and discover that I can't afford any of them.
I'm an A student(3.87 UW GPA), top 10?f my class, who plans to pursue a career in Physics, meaning I need a college that provides a lot of research so that I can get into a good Graduate Program. That is why most of my list consists of the top 30 colleges of the nation.
I absolutely know nothing about cars and i was planning on buying a 93 acura integra with 180000+ miles on it. Im going to get it checked out by a mechanic before i buy it, but i dont really trust the last owner and dont think its going to be in good shape. So i was wondering, would buying a new engine/transmission etc in a good package deal make the car like new? Because im buying the car for 1800, i have a couple more thousand to buy a different engine. So i was thinking of something along the lines of an H22 engine or a k20 or just another b18 series engine/transmisson. Something like
Would that engine fit in the car? And would it be worth it? And if i did do it, would it still have the power and speed of its old engine and around the same gas mileage? Thanks for all the help!
Ok so what should i do? Im still probably going to get the car because its the only car that i would actually want thats in my budget, so should i just buy it and take it to a mechanic to fix it up the best i cant?
I recently just bought a 07 H-D sportster XLC, it has the original handlebars and risers(5" I believe), from the forks to the handlegrips its about 8", the bike was salvaged when I bought and the handlebars are bent which affects the ride.... I think I have settled on buying a 10" rise straight T-bar, and i was wondering if there is anyone out there who can tell me more about the process, im curious if I am going to have to pay for longer throttle cable,brake cable etc., also wondering if I am going to have to relocate turn signals and speedo because I have seen pictures where people have done this but I really do not want too...... also I was wondering if there is anyone has done this kind of similar project who can tell me of a rough estimate price, just somewhere in the ballpark so I know what to save... p.s. I plan on taking bike to mechanic as I am lost when it comes to wiring, any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated..thanks J.Q.
I'm getting the timing belt done on my 1996 Accord LX, and I have a few questions about parts, and where to shop. I won't be doing the install myself, but I do need to buy ALL necessary parts for my mechanic.
1. When changing out the timing belt, I understand a few things get done like replacing the water pump. I heard a few other things need to be done too but I don't know the exact technical terms, I believe it's along the lines of crank shaft, or cam seals (don't know if that even makes sense). Anyway, that's my first question, what parts do I need to buy for my mechanic when performing a timing belt change?
2. Is it best to buy online? If so, what are the best online stores to buy these specific parts from?
All other advice on purchasing parts or anything would be greatly appreciated!
Im 20yo guy and Im having trouble deciding if I should join the Air Force or stick with my job at UPS. I initially wanted to work for UPS to become a driver but Im starting to become more and more bored with surroundings(work, school, friends ect) and im thinking of joining the air force. I can be a driver at UPS when I turn 21 and by the time im 23 I will be making around $75,000 just to deliver packages(easy but bland). On the other hand I could join the AF and see the world but Im worried when I get out, I will have nothing to fall back on and dont want to waste 4 yrs of my life and end up where I started, with exception of a little bit of traveling and maybe some lifelong friends. Plus the jobs Im interested in are basically dead end in the civilian world(aircraft mehanic) and security forces which would leave me sitting on my ass 12hrs a day. What would you do?
So, I have 2 1968 Dodge Darts. One slant-six, the other is a 273 hardtop. I also have a 1971 barracuda engine and trans. I am not able to restore these because what I put into one of the projects will cost 2-3 times more than the value of the car itself. So I was wondering, what if I restored the slant-six; which is actually in great condition minus the paint, wheels, and the front seats. I could just switch the rims and the new bucket seats out of the hardtop and put it into the slant-six. The hardtop also has a nice bumper I could put on there. I could also just get a good paint job for a couple thousand. My mechanics repainted my stealth for a little over $2k. I could probably put in a couple hundred to get the engine running again. Then I would just have to sell the hardtop and engine package and hopefully that will pay for half of the cost of paint.
I was also thinking down the line, when I have more money after I get my degree, how much money would it cost to convert it to a 426 HEMI to resell and make a prophet or to trade for a matching numbers 1968-70 manual Dodge Charger. I was hoping, maybe, I could keep the original transmission.
Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated. Thank you.
Right, so you are talking about getting a loan on it with a down-payment. Where would be a good place to do that? Are there muscle car dealerships out there? And tell me more about the challenger you are thinking about getting. Is it nice? Thanks for all your help!
I just signed my contract with the Army as a 14T. What is the actual job? What are the odds I will see combat? I plan on putting in a Ranger or Special Forces contract asap, so if you have an info on how long I have to be in my MOS before I can drop a package that would help. Thanks
A dumbass who knows what the job title is and what the description is but was asking what I will actually be doing, a dumbass who has already served 5 years in the Navy and, as an E4 with 5 years military experience, had only that job he could enlist in at the time, and since he is a PATRIOT he decided to take whatever job that they have available for him. But thanks.
