Going to college and getting your college degree is one of the smartest things you can ever do for your life and for your future. A college degree is going to help you get the career that you have always dreamed about. One of the first things you need to think about when you first graduated from college is where you plan on working. Getting a job within the first few months of college is something that is crucial in order to start your career.
Starting Your Career
Once you accept a job offer and you start to work you need to be sure that you have covered all of your basis in regards to looking professional. You need to be sure that you dress extremely professional and they were always well groomed. Your office also needs to be sophisticated. You need to be sure you have your college diploma on your wall. If you have not done this then you need to look for university diploma frames so that you get the perfect frame for your office.
Staying On Top Of Your Career
If you had taken a job that you plan on staying at for several years then you need to be sure that you do all of the necessary measures in order to start moving up the corporate ladder. Always be sure that you put in all of the time that is necessary, and you also need to be sure that you periodically check in with your boss to see it what your performance is rated.
Getting your college degree can be a stepping stone for you. All you need to do is stay focused and put in a lot of hard work, and your future is going to be full of wonderful things to come. Seek a psychic for more information on your future. But find out how to avoid psychic scams.
If you’re in college, first of all you have my sympathy. But seriously, particularly if you’re putting yourself through college, you’re going to need a lot more than five ways to save money. Hopefully, the following information will at the very least, get you pointed in the right direction. And just to start things off, every time you have to buy something from a company that you’ve never purchased from before make sure you ask for a new customer discount. It’s kind of like people of a more ‘mature age’ asking for the senior discount. There may not be one but there’s certainly never harm in asking. If they tell you they don’t have one, your next question may be – “well, why not? Your competition does!”
1. When you’re thinking about how much something costs try to think about it less as dollars and cents and more on the terms of hours and minutes of your valuable time. If you’re spending almost 5 dollars for that mocha-choke-a-latte-ya-ya at Starbucks, how long is it going to take you to earn that money if you actually had to? What’s the minimum wage these days? The answer – $8.25 per hour. So realistically, it would take about half an hour to earn that Starbucks coffee you couldn’t do without. (Though coffee may be a bad example because who can live without coffee?)
2. They make deadlines for a reason. To avoid paying late fees try to be on time where and whenever possible. This can particularly apply to the enrollment deadline, if you are or plan on being a student. Not getting to enrollment on time could mean you missing out on getting into a class which means you’re going to have to pay to take it next year.
3. Okay the coffee was a bad example but if you can do away with certain little bad habits not only will you benefit from it financially but it could even be good for your health. Alcohol is pricey and so is partying. Smoking is not only dirty, disgusting and bad for you but it’s getting more and more expensive every day. A decision has to be made here. Beer pong or coffee?
4. Living on campus is nice. It’s convenient. But getting an apartment and sharing the cost with several friends is probably the more frugal living arrangement for a college student. (I realize that dorm living is required for a certain period of time in some schools.)
5. Taking care of a car costs money – so do taxicabs. Walk, ride a bike or take the bus. You’ll get over it.
And though many of today’s “textbooks” are actually online, there are a few old school courses that still rely on good old-fashioned paper textbooks. If possible, buy your textbooks used whenever you can.
You’re parents love that you’re a part of a cheer leading squad, and they support you as much as they can, but times have been tough. Everyone’s parents seem to be unable to help you raise the funds you need as a squad. With no real options left, you’ve only got one choice- raise the money on your own. You’re all in desperate needs of new uniforms- tops, skirts, cheer bows- the works. That’s going to run a lot of money, so you better have a sure fire plan to raise it all. Here’s a few tips to keep in mind.
When the going gets tough, the temptation is there to do as much as you possibly can. This can sometimes lead to you taking on more than you can handle, and that can really end up hurting the squad in the long term. When planning out just how each of you are going to do your part, be sure to set realistic goals for yourselves. The last thing you need is for everyone to end up falling short, and your goal ends up not being met. Work within your means, and do your best to reach those more realistic goals.
Whenever you’re going to be asking for donations, make sure to always wear your uniform. This accomplishes a few different things- it puts people at ease, lets them know what the fundraising is for without you even having to say anything, and encourages them to donate, seeing as how cheer leaders always leaving people feeling energized and involved.
Why not consider a fundraising party during the final week? This gives everyone the feeling that you’ve been building towards something, and when people are gathered together, they feel compelled to come together in hopes that your goals are met. Gatherings always pull in more funds than reaching out to people on an individual by individual basis. Give it a shot!
Similarly to a fundraising party, take a minute or two at the start and finish of each game you cheer at to appeal to the crowd- you would be surprised how far school spirit can carry a fundraiser. You’ll almost certainly gather more funds at a game than you will going door to door, or any other means you may come up with.
What’s most important is that you be up front and clear every step of the way with whoever you ask for a donation. Let them know what their money is going towards, when if will go through, and how much you’re looking for in total. There’s nothing wrong with raising funds, but those who chip in deserve clear communication the whole way through.
It’s the biggest day of the year, and this time you’re going to be hosting the party. That’s right- it’s time for the Superbowl! Most of your friends have hosted your get-together’s over the years, and without fail their parties end up falling short. You’re determined to host a winner this year, and that means you’ve got to give it your all as a host. Along with creative promotional products, here are a few ways you can be prepared for a great Superbowl bash.
To start, keep in mind that you should have a variety of drinks. Not everyone has the same tastes in alcohol and other types of beverages. If you’re expecting a decent amount of visitors, keep your fridge, freezer, and cooler filled with several different types of drinks. The last thing you want is to have a room full of unhappy people.
If it’s going to be a while before you’re meal is going to be served and delivered, you’ve got to keep your guests snacking without getting full. That’s where finger food comes in. For your party, make sure that you’ve got an unending supply of finger foods good to go. And just like the beverages, be sure to have a wide variety on hand.
Prepare time wasters just in case the halftime show is terrible. We’ve all been there- halftime rolls around, and five minutes in, you and everyone else gathered at the party are rolling your eyes at how terrible it is. If you’re hoping to survive the ordeal, a good idea might be to have party games and other events ready and waiting to roll out once the halftime show starts up. Giving your guests something fun and offbeat to keep them occupied will give them memories they’ll carry with them up until next year’s Superbowl.
Take a picture of everyone in the room as the game ends. Capture the looks of everyone who was rooting for their team to win, as well as the looks of those who can’t believe their team lost. Once everyone’s calmed down, pass the image around and watch the eyes start to roll. Just like they do at amusement parks, sending this picture to everyone as they leave will give them something to laugh about over the coming days, and will serve as a solid piece of memorabilia they’ll carry with them over the year. It’s important to end things on a high note, as the last hour or two can really drain the energy out of everyone.
Superbowl should be more than just a party- it should be an event. If you’re going to do something, do it all the way. Host a party that everyone’s going to remember for the rest of the year!
You’ve waited you’re entire life for this. (All 18 or 19 years of it). Now you are on your own. You’re off to college. Whether it’s across the street, across town, across the state, or across the state line you can now claim independence, from the oppression of your overbearing parents. (Except for the fact that you still need money, and you’re parents are either paying for your college or have signed off on your financial aid. Oh yeah, and your parents weren’t really that overbearing, but it sounds really cool to say so). Sure, it would be easy to pick up the phone and call them to float you a little dough. But, you have decided to do this the right way. Mumsy and Dadsy can’t pay for everything you know. So, now it’s time to pound the pavement and look for a job to help pay college fees. Of course the internet makes pounding the pavement a little less pounding.
The key element to this is “part time”. Remember you are a student. You are trying to find employment that will fit in with your busy school schedule. So, look for employers that are accustomed to working with students. This means your main focus is on school. Some employers realize you are a student and will still put unreasonable demands on you, as if your entire life revolved around that particular part time job. Some employers will also push the envelope, when it comes to part time. In other words pushing the mandatory work hours as close to full time, without becoming a full time position.
As long as you are taking responsibility to get your shift covered (and not calling in at the last minute saying you can’t work your shift) most employers are okay with student employees. Make sure from the start, how many hours you are working each day or each week. Keep in mind that it’s not always the employers fault. There are a lot of student workers who are unreliable. They show up to work late, call in sick when they are not, call in at the last minute, because they have a test to study for or just because they don’t feel like working that day.. Etc., etc. etc.
If you are going to take on the responsibility of a job, remember, the employer makes his or her bones on that business. That is their livelihood. They can’t run a business if the employees are unreliable and not showing up to work. But, if you build up a good rapport with your employer and keep in good communication, they are more willing to work with you and around your school schedule. It’s just like any other relationship. Communication is key.
