I really like chemistry and was wondering what the difference between a chemistry major and chemical engineering major are? I'm good at math too. so basically I'm looking for the difference between them and the types of jobs you can do with each one. if there is anyone with either major who could tell me that would awesome but anyone can answer this. is it possible to double major with both of them?
I'm just wondering what kind of job I get with a neuroscience degree.
What I mean is that when I graduate i don't want to go into research and work in labs. It doesn't appeal to me because the pay in the UK for research scientists is rubbish, the working hours are quite long and the work is tedious.
My question is what kind of job can i get that is related to my degree but doesn't involve lab based work or research.
Also i I don't want to go into teaching.
I've been trying to find a career in advertising/marketing for a little while now. I always include a cover letter, to stand out a bit. Usually what I do, is have a "base" cover letter, but I change the contents of the paragraph to suit the position.
For example I applied to a position with this description and requirements:
The Account Coordinator plays a key role in the day-to-day client communication, planning and execution for a portfolio of Accordant Media’s advertising clients. In this capacity the Account Coordinator aids in development of client-facing documents and communications, helps design and implement campaigns, and facilitates communication between client and internal Accordant Media teams. The Account Coordinator will work closely with Accordant’s Analytics, Optimization and Technology teams, as well as the core Client Services group, gaining exposure to every facet of the real-time media practice.
Specific Responsibilities and Activities:
Contribute to day to day client communication and translate client objectives into campaign strategy
Develop client-facing materials highlighting the execution and performance of Accordant programs
Interface with client contacts to provide updates and insights on campaign performance
Work with Optimization and Analytics teams to devise tactical strategies and drive campaign performance
Desired Skills & Experience
BS / BA degree.
1-2 years professional experience. Experience in media, research, advertising or financial services field preferred.
Knowledge of the online media business and underlying technology and research
Strong analytical skills: must be comfortable with MS Excel and Powerpoint, data analysis, and internet technologies
Effective time management skills – ability to prioritize and meet deadlines
Must be self-motivated and able to take the initiative to get the job done
Excellent listening, presentation, written and verbal communication skills
Comfortable working in a fast-paced, demanding, and fun entrepreneurial environment
Ability to travel as required"
To which I replied with my resume, and this cover letter (name and phone number omitted)
I am responding in regard to the Account Coordinator position posted on LinkedIn.
I feel that I am right for this position because of my experience, my skill list, and my personality. Primarily, I have over 8 years of experience in selling, up-selling, negotiating and managing. This means I’ve developed excellent communication skills and can juggle multiple projects at once. One of the most important things my background in management has taught me, is that results are essential. This has made me a very metric oriented person, and makes me always quantify what I do.
In addition, my resume details that I started as a Marketing Intern at a Hispanic theater company called -------------. I took this internship, because I wanted to differentiate my experience to cater more to an advertising oriented career. My initial responsibilities were to edit and create ads. But I’ve always been the type to go above and beyond my responsibilities and do more. It ended up being a success for me, because they noticed my work ethic and an unpaid internship that was supposed to last three months, transformed into a freelance Communication Design position where I would do so much more.
I feel that a combination of being a manager and a freelance communication designer makes me the ideal candidate for this position. Being manager means I know how to talk to the team and to the client and my experience in design shows that I know how to craft a message that will be receptive to my audience.
I’m excited to talk about the Account Coordinator position and talk about what I can offer you and your organization in person. You may contact me at any time at -----, or email me at ------@gmail.com.
Thank you for your time!
What I try to do is kind of craft a story as to who I am and why I would be beneficial to them. I wouldn't want to make it completely boring which is why i chose this method. Also I know about the point of an "action close" cover letter but i'm not too fond of it. Otherwise, ANY feedback would be much appreciated and thank you for reading this.
I have heard a lot of negativity about having this as a major, but I have been thinking about it for a good while now. It's really interesting and it seems fun! But I don't want to be a teacher or professor or a stereotypical "philosopher." I want to have a "normal" job, business-related, probably, but I don't want to go for a business degree because everyone's getting them. Does that make sense? Would I be able to get a "normal" job with a philosophy degree?

Most jobs gets 10 points.
I have six years of experience as an engineer. (BS in engineering)
As I wanted to change my career from engineer to financial guy, I obtained an MBA degree, finance as concentration.
My first job after MBA was not in the financial industry, but a little close. I have worked as an administrator at a research institution. My responsibilities include R&D budget planning, R&D accounting, profit estimation, project controller, R&D strategy establishing, process improvement (Six Sigma), Business plan development, project evaluation, etc.
Because of my personal reasons, I am going to move to the US from Japan and look for a job. I wonder what kind of job positions can be aligned with my background. Because I have experience in accounting, a MBA degree in finance, am quite good at numbers and excel spreadsheet, and have analytical skills, I am targeting the financial analyst position. Any advice?

I'm really passionate about English and would like to major in it; however, my parents would definitely not support me in this, especially since it is relatively hard to get a job with such a degree unless I wanted to become teacher... which I rather not.
My parents want me to go into the medical field, so I'm contemplating a compromise by majoring in physical therapy and minoring in English.
Is that a good idea? Any suggestions? Thank you! ^_^
