I have a degree in Graphic Design and I want to receive a Bachelor's Degree in a field that will compliment my 1st degree, as well as prepare me with the knowledge to run my own entertainment promotion company.
example: We will service to upcoming music artists, models, comedians and provide the marketing and promotion needs for them. Kind of like a one stop shop for album covers, flyers, press release, etc...etc.
Would a degree in Marketing or Advertising be most efficient.
Actually the school that I was looking at teaches both the curriclum of Advertising and Design. They call it Advertsing Design. So it allows me to use my design sense and apply it to Advertising. But will this really help me with promotions?
I have a degree in Business Administration, and would like to be a manager or supervisor somewhere. Unfortunately, nobody wants to start me out in those positions, because I don't have experience, and in one of my previous jobs which was retail, whenever I would put in for those positions or ask for a promotion, both my district manager and store managers would laugh. So I guess my question is, what is a person supposed to do if he doesn't have experience and WANTS to have experience?
I will be graduating from college with a degree in Marketing and Media Management come this fall and I would like to know what my options are as far as a (good paying/exciting) career.
What do each of these majors involve? Can you define them please? What kinds of jobs look for people who major in these fields? What type of courses do u need to take in both high school and college for these majors?
I'll be completing a degree in marketing next year.. i haven't really considered what i want to do with it but someone told me i'll never be able to find a job in it.
what kind of jobs can i find in marketing? and will i be able to find jobs even if they aren't directly related to marketing?
i would also like to do something where i could possibly travel internationally.. any ideas?
I'm a college graduate. I own a small roofing business and I think I would like to be an Army officer in the Guard. Does anyone have any reason for me to go foreword with this or to reconsider this? I'd appreciate help especially from someone who is a Guard officer. It's really hard to get good info on this.
Sorry, I should have been more specific. I'm not looking for those holier than thou officers who somehow think that only blind morons make good officers. I should clarify that I'm not willing to sign up for 8 years of something with very little info about it. That's not making tough decisions under pressure, that's making stupid decisions. I'd rather make an informed decision. Anyway, I suppose I just want to know if my recruiters (who I trust very little) have left something out that I should know. If you are unwilling to help (by telling me good reasons to go ahead or reconsider) then I'd rather you not post. Although, I suppose I have learned a little bit as a result of these posts about how some senior officers might think, so that might be valuable to me.
I'm in yr8 and was wondering what career I might like seeing as I'm choosing my electives.
I love animals, photography and art
Im going to be graduating in the spring with a degree in studio art. im not necessarily looking for something in the arts either. so i was just wondering what jobs other people have gotten after graduating college?

What can i do with a degree in buisness management specialized in marketing?
is it in demand ?
Before judging me, please read my entire question.
I work at a very famous Museum where I give interactive tours of icon exhibits. I have been there over 4 years now. Giving the same tours, doing the same stuff. For the 4 years I have been there, our management has changed. We went from being Program Interpreters to Facilitators. Now our management is more micro-management, and I have new bosses coming down and telling me how to do my job in the same way I have been doing it for 4 years! They just make it look different so THEY keep THEIR paychecks coming.
My frustration is I'm 29 and doing a job that 18 year-olds can get fresh out of high school. I have a college degree and have proven I know the material. But I never get promoted. I have interviewed many times, and always lose out. True, my attendance is bad at times and I call off sick and run late- but this is something most of my team does anyways. I am still skillful and am great at giving tours. I am BORED now and want to get a job upstairs in the offices, essentially. I am burnt out at doing the same thing.
Meanwhile my other colleagues are moving up, some being here less then a year! It angers me so much! I'm 29 years old! Educated, well rounded. I deserve to be promoted. I am not being a jerk- YOU try working at the same place for 4 years with NO promotion and see what you feel like. 18 year-olds making the same amount of money as you. And I don't even WANT to do this for a living. I want to be a writer/entertainer, but times are tough now and I live in Chicago- not a good place to try to be an entertainer.
Why is this happening to me? Even when my attendance was good I got nothing. And I'm sick of getting new bosses that come down and tell me different ways to "engage guests", when at the end of the day I'm doing the same **** I was doing 4 years ago! What can I do?
For the past year, I've been assistant to a team of 3 managers and the department's Director. Over this past year, I've demonstrated managerials skills and because of my knowledge with a database we use, I've even trained two of the managers for nearly 6 months!!! Of course, this wasn't in my job description but they were nice people and I felt the need to help them out so that they'd get ahead. You know, taking one for the team!
Problem is, other people at the organization where I work said things to me like "why aren't YOU a manager, stop wasting your time training them. They should already know what to do!" I began to ask myself the same question later on. Recently, I asked to be promoted and surprisingly...the Vice President approved my request. I was so excited to tell others, when I caught the wind coming off of the "rumor mill". I found out one of the managers is resigning because she "refuses to have a 20-something year old train her" Any advice for next week?
by the way, the worse part about this promotion is that it will be announced THE SAME DAY the woman's resignation email is sent to everyone in the office. It's going to be SO AWKWARD for me. It's going to look like I'm "replacing" her but, in reality I'll have a different job description.
I was an employee with Ernst and Young's IT Audit Practice for two and a half years.. During that time, I was an experienced Staff within their IT Audit Practice.. One year passed by and I was not promoted to Senior.. This was normal as I had not been with the firm for a full year.. However, during my second year, I was passed over yet again to being promoted to Senior.. Because I was passed over two years in a row, HR immediately held a meeting with myself, our leading practice Partner, and our HR Coordinator.. The HR Coordinator and the Partner sat me down and said that because I was passed over twice to being promoted, I was going to be terminated.. However, in all of my engagement reviews, I received rave and positive reviews.. All of my Managers indicated in my reviews that I was ready to become a Senior.. When I brought this to HR and the Partner's attention, they said what was written did not accurately reflect everyone's feelings during our Year-End Reviews.. Can I take action?
So, when I first started in this department, my bosses actually solicited me away from my original department (which is against company policy anyways...). They always tell me how wonderful I am, how helpful I am, etc...you know...they always kiss my behind.
They promoted someone in the department and it didn't make sense to me. The woman they promoted doesn't know half of what I do, doesn't do even 1/8th of the work I do, can't use a computer, etc. So I asked since my manager had told me once, verbally, that they want to promote me and they want to do all this stuff for me.
I asked, "I don't get it. You tell me all these wonderful things, you always come to me to save the day, and even telling me what you had told me before, I just don't understand." My intent was to understand really and not cause trouble. If someone who isn't qualified gets a promotion, what do I need to do?
First, she said, "F$@# you", then she called me an ungrateful little b!+@#. She told me that I thought waaaayyyyyy too much of myself and that she was sick of it and sick of me. She called me a fake and (here's the kicker), she then told me that she's only been pretending to like me since she brought me on board. She then told me to do whatever I had to do and called me an @$$hole.
Now, since this exchange happened over FB, she blocked me after her reply so I couldn't reply. I deleted the message shrugging it off to mental illness.
Now, she won't even say hello to me at work even though everyone else does in the morning, she took away my overtime, and all around is being quite nasty.
Our company said that whatever happens off company time isn't their problem. That's fair and I totally respect that...however...knowing what I know now, my everyday work life is totally affected.
I'm in a she said/she said situation. What do I do? Should I speak with an HR professional at my job?
To add to it, ever since her mother died, she's been exhibiting classic depressive behavior. How do I know? It's like looking in a mirror. When I was suicidal, I acted like that. She's been lashing out at people and saying that no one deserves anything, etc.
Now, I'm not mad...miffed but not mad. Honestly, the woman is depressed and it's only getting worse, so I'm sure the events that transpired were depressive acts...nothing more, nothing less.
The funnier part is if you talk to my therapist, she would tell you that I don't think much of myself at all.
Now, I know she doesn't like me and in general, she's a homophobic anti-semite. I am a gay Jew. Oddly enough, every single person who has gotten a promotion has been a straight, Christian female.
I was thinking of laying it all out on Monday with an HR professional since a lot of my friends here who are involved in the legal field tell me that I could have a super duper case against her. Discrimination, harassment, and creation of a hostile work environment.
What do I do?
@Johnny Derp - Why did you answer if you didn't read it? Seriously, that's just illogical.
I work at a museum and the managers were having auditions for a new exhibit coming out. All of us (tour Guides) have to come in and talk in very distinct British accents to get accepted. Anyways, I REALLY wanted to pass the audition! I worked day and night studying my accent to make sure it was perfect. A girl named Lisa on my team also was auditioning. When I asked her how badly she wanted to be in the new exhibit, she told me "Oh it doesn't really matter to me. I'm not going to care if I don't make it."
When they announced who made it in, Lisa made it and I didn't! I was quite p****d off. First of all, I don't get how if Lisa didn't really care if she made it, she made it anyways. Yet I really studied my *** off and got told no! Lisa always seems to get promotions at work, yet is so annoyingly humble about everything I cringe when ever they give her employee of the month, pat her on the back for a great tour, etc. I never get any of these things! I know I sound spoiled, but Lisa always tells me she doesn't care about praise at work, yet ALWAYS GETS IT! Me on the other hand- I love praise. Yet I never get any.
Can someone please explain why Lisa gets all the praise if she doesn't act like she cares, and I'm vise versa? And don't judge me either! I want honest answers, not people bashing me for being a sore loser. I want honesty here.
I work as a hotel night auditor (third shift) and am not getting the credit I deserve for my pro-active behavior. I exhibit a strong work ethic and have been overlooked for promotions within the hotel. I understand that in my field of work I can be easily replaced if I become too unhappy to too demanding. I really like it here, but it seems like management isn't doing what they get paid salary to do!!!!!! There was another front desk agent that was moved to a doorman position (which managemtn felt necessary to magickly create) and he gets paid the same hourly pay that I receive but he works daytime hours!!!!!! How do I compete?
There is this older male at work that has a STRONG history of harassing us younger women at work. I am 25 but some of the other female staff at work are as young as 16.
For several months, this guy acted very sexual to us using words, comments, gestures, and the like to us girls at work. After he tried to "get" with the youngest of the staff, we collectively reported him to the boss. The boss dismissed his behavior half way b/c she think's he's a good guy and since he's worked at our company a few years back , she sees nothing seriously wrong with him. He was fired by the previous store boss a few years ago but the dept boss hired him back for some reason.She literally considered him "harmless" after all the stuff we reported to her.
That made me furious but she did talk to him about it which sorta calmed down his pants a bit.
But then after he was told to cool off with us, he got promoted to dept lead. He then began to exhibit mild aggressive behaviors to us such as being rude and moody to us. He would be very bossy and say really mean things to the other girls like he was on some kind of power trip.
At one point he yelled at one of the younger staffers and said something very degrating right in front of a line of customers to the point where everybody in line went silent from his episode. When the poor girl went to help the line, they commented on how nasty he was to her and were shocked that he could treat her like that in public.
Alot of the things he demanded on the job were wrong as far as how things should really be done. He tried to make us do things his way which were not the right way. When we objected or denied to do things the wrong way, he's get pissy and try to fight with us about it. Eventually we had to go to the boss again to tell her what he's doing and she again had a talk with him about it. She then told us we could object to his BS and since we girls know how to do things the right way we could do that without having him argue.
After this, he began to compete with us just to be better than us or be on top of things.If we did something good and got rewarded or congratulated by the superiors, he'd get jealous and try to match our work or do better.
I talked with the rest of the younger staff about his issues and we figured out that he has some sort of insecurity complex along with alot of mental issues. All of us know he smoked alot of pot up through last year even while he worked at the company the first time around.
So all of his irrational behaviors and bossing and moodiness is I think from the drugs and since he's been apparently "off" them this year, he's getting all crazy from not smoking up every day.
The newest problem going on now is the fact that this guy has been showing up alot before and after his shifts and just hanging out in the dept. where us girls are and trying to hang out while we work. He even shows up when he's not working and sometimes he'll show up a few times a day.
To me, this seems like really obsessive behavior and almost stalking too. He started to do the multiple visiting earlier this year right when he got off drugs for the year. He showed up alot when the 16 year old worked in the dept. and she had to quit b/c of his creepiness and advances. This being the same 16 year old he tried to get with.
Nobody else in the company shows up off shift like this guy does and it's like he's obsessed with us women and thinks he can f**k us all b/c he's attracted to women as young as 16.
I don't get why the boss sees nothing wrong with this behavior but to me it seems like he's being very obsessive and controlling b/c he got a promotion.
There is no reason why he has to visit the store alot and our dept. especially when he's working over 30 hours there in the first place!!!
So I am considering going to the main boss and telling her that this obsessive visiting has to stop b/c it's getting very creepy and there is no reason for him to be coming in every day especially with the dirty, illegal crap he's done to us women so far.
What do u think? IS this guy's behavior something to worry about???
* NONE of the girls that work with me are ok with his behavior. I am especially weirded out by him.
* The 16 year old girl he tried to get with left b/c she felt so weird around him and didn't feel comfortable at work.
* None of us are giving him the attention he wants because we don't like the way he's treating us women. I am thinking he's acting like this b/c he's attracted to the female staff and he thinks he can get us all b/c he likes us.
* The 16 year old already complained as well as us all making a collective complaint and it did no good. She did not like his advances nor his comments to her and that is why she quit.
* He did touch us in a sexual way and also made sexual jokes and comments directly to us and told us that we liked it b/c he did and so that is also another reason why we complained.
* This creep is 30 years old and he has made advances and sexual gestures towards women as young as 16. He's gone after girls still in high school and not 18 and he has it in his head that if they are hot to him its ok and they want to be sexual back which they don't.
All of us staff, even as young as that 16 year old have rejected him and reported him so he should get the hint b/c we are not returning the attention. That is why I feel it's very creepy for him to be coming into work extra times when he's not working.
I have just started working in my first managerial job. One of the members of staff I have to manage is really difficult. I am an easy going person and would never take advantage of anyone, am quite a relaxed chilled boss I think who everyone likes, yet everytime I ask her to do something she gets really aggressive and raises her voice at me and throws a tantrum. It has got to the stage where I am now scared to ask her to do anything because it creates so much bad feeling. I also found out she has been 'spying' on me - writing down in a diary minute details about eg when I arrive in the mornings, when I leave, she quotes me on random things writing it in her book then brings it up in meetings with our big boss but completely out of context so it looks like I'm a really bad person (I promise I'm not). She has been doing this to other managers for ages now but nothing seems to have been done about her. Today I got scared at the thought of having to ask her to do something, and I'm half scared to go back in there again. What should I do? Does anyone know from experience the best way to deal with people like this? I'd really appreciate any advice more than anything!
