Yes, friends hv things in common. BUT, she did not do taxes, advanced degrees, 2 cars, vacation, buy land, remodel, become a notary, until I did.
Then, she asked “how can I get summers off w/o working with kids?” Now, she is trying to switch to teaching –THE SAME SUBJECT AS MINE! She has no methodology training & has not subbed or at least been an aide.
Should I help her after the putdowns?
Will she finally be at peace?
Baba Yaga, most of us here in the YA community realize that there are restrictions on the number of characters we can use. Therefore, we opt for abbreviations, synonyms, etc. If I wanted to use APA, I would be working on my dissertation. However, I am taking a break to relieve some stress in YA before returning back to academia.
P.S. It’s “you’d” not “you’re” since you brought it up!
Okay, Baba’s grammar was correct. However, it was hard to see with all the red in my eyes. I did notice she used contractions like the rest of us common folk!
There are some natural kitchen artists that can just toss in a few ingredients and create a masterpiece. However, most of the great chefs of the world had to start from the bottom and work their way up. It is also simple to assume that most of them have received a proper culinary education.
Cooking can be a very complex industry. It is not simply a matter of throwing a few things together and pitching the dish in the oven. It takes careful planning, consideration and understanding in order to make the perfect meal. And with the proper education, there will be many perfect meals under your belt within a very short period of time.
Since there are so many different types of cuisine styles, culinary school can be broken down into many smaller categories. If baking has always been your passion, you may excel at taking a course in pastry baking and confectionary arts. This type of course will take your muffin and cupcake experience and bring it to a level you never dreamed possible.
This is a course that many culinary students choose to take because it offers a wide variety of baking options that can cater to a wide variety of situations. Whether you wish to make donuts and pastries for a living, or be a dessert caterer, a course like this will have you well on your way. You will learn the intricacies of baking, the ingredients normally used as well as how to add your own personal flair to your creation. Imagine the looks on your dinner guests faces when you come out of the kitchen with a pie or cake that looked and tasted better than anything you see at your local bakery’s storefront window.
The sheer variety in world cuisine offers many opportunities for would-be chefs. And a proper culinary education is the best way to find out exactly what you excel in and what you wish to pursue as a career. There will never be a shortage of people wishing to eat, so the opportunities are endless.
It is important that you understand exactly what aspect of the culinary arts interests you the most before embarking on a career. Catering, cooking, recipe preparing and management are only a few of the things that are covered within the confines of a proper culinary education.
What you want to give and what you want to get out of it are the two most important questions to consider when thinking of a career in this field. There are many culinary schools out there that will be able to take the talent that you already have and meld it into a rewarding career.
It is important to note that a successful career in the food industry does not happen overnight. You need to assess your skills, decide on your target market and above all, have the education to back up your claims. But if you have a love of cooking and a love of great food, a culinary education will be able to grant you the career you have always dreamed of.
Education is one of the key areas of human development and growth. All are not privileged to have the same opportunities of getting proper education and grow with dignity. Millions of young children and youth find their life drifting along the winds of fate and luck. Some fall into good hands and many into manipulating hands. The so called terrorists are created by today’s economy of discrimination. If just a fraction of what is spent for making weapons and creating tensions across the brotherly borders those millions of children who reel under utter poverty will see a ray of hope and light. People of good conscience are in the world of business and industries. They make a difference by thinking in inclusive terms. Growth cannot be one sided. It has to be inclusive. If there is too much of disparity there will be continuing social unrest as it is seen today. Education Sponsors make the difference by supporting one of the crucial social causes of sponsoring the educational expenditures of the underprivileged. The news about such programs are found in their sponsored websites and news letters.
A light cannot be lit and hidden under a bushel. It has to be kept on a lamp stand. Good works done cannot be and should not be hidden. It should be made known, though in a moderate tone, for the sake of its inspirational value. Sponsor’s News need not be of the charity work alone, it can include the new avenues of social shouldering, fund raising, social networking, community building along with sponsoring links. The Education Sponsor News can be updated frequently and the site be maintained so that it remains relevant. Who is responsible for the newsletters and website maintenance? Definitely it should be done by the association that binds the sponsors together towards a common goal. The Education Sponsor Association can take up the responsibility of gathering news about the individual initiatives of sponsors and give publicity in the common website and monthly or bimonthly newsletters. Special programs and issues with great highlights could be broadcasted with much more prominence and even the press could be invited to be present. The news, then gets much more publicity and coverage along with the regular newsletters and websites.
Content of Education Sponsor News:
Besides the news of the recent past and the sponsor projects that are over, Education Sponsor News could include the brainstorming on new projects and initiatives, opening of new avenues, announcing the standing projects’ application and last dates etc. It could include the individual initiatives taken up by individual sponsors in small or big ways and make a special mention of their generosity so that they get due respect and coverage. It could include the students’ initiatives in fulfilling the requirements of the scholarship programs. Special incentives could be announced for the students who excelled in their studies with the help of the sponsor projects.
Getting my pilots license took five years and cost more than $15,000 of my own hard-earned money (I received no loans, paying entirely as I went). It’s absurd that the IRS won’t let you deduct a single penny of this (though, I’ve heard that certain flight training costs, beyond the level of commercial rating, are deductible, and was wondering if someone could comment on this).
I consider this to be a valid education expense and intend to make a career out of this one day, I don’t consider this strictly as a hobby (even though I certainly love flying).
I love music and would love to stay in that area, but I don’t want to go back to school as I already have $60000 in student loans. I’ve tried music publications… boring; educational sales… no money; and i’ve even tried going into training/development. Now, I’m all about transferable skills but I couldn’t even get an interview. I’ve got bills to pay and can’t afford working for anything less than $40,000/year.
And please help me answer these questions please
A) What kind of education (or training) will I need to succeed in this career?
B) What is the salary range (staring salary to highest income I could earn) for a person working in this career in San Jose, California?
C) What would my work environment (surroundings) be like?
D) How many hours could I expect to work in one day?(day or night)
Please critique my Cover Letter! Please? Any extra Help (Good Inter Interview questions/responses) R Welcomed
