A Career That I Love

There is one thing that I have always wanted from my life, and that is a good career. I wanted to do something big with my life since I was young, and I have been determined to get a good education for myself ever since then. I have done my best to get good grades all of my life, and I am proud of the way that I have always pushed myself. My hard work has paid off, and now I am able to get a good degree, so that I can have the career that I always dreamed of.

With my degree I will be able to have a career that will pay good money. I will be able to live in a nice house, drive a nice car, and never have to worry that my bills will go unpaid. With a good career I will be able to work at a job that I love. I will be able to feel good about myself and the work that I am doing. If I had not pushed myself when I was younger I never would have made it here. I am so glad that I saw the importance of a good education when I was young, so that I can reap the benefits of my hard work, now.

Furthering Your Education When You Are A Nurse

I was working in the nursing field for about ten years when I started to get kind of bored with my job. While I was happy with the location I was working at and management was very easy to work alongside with, I was looking for something new and exciting. Unfortunately, my education that I had was only going to take me so far and I was not eligible for a number of jobs on the market that intrigued me. It was at this point that I decided to start looking into opportunities for furthering my education.

The field of medicine progresses as time goes on because of new technological advances and new discoveries in the world of healthcare and medicine. Ongoing research means you have to stay educated and thanks to a field of work that is always in need of new faces, nursing is an always evolving field of work. Luckily, you don’t always have to head back to the classroom for extensive classes that will take you away from work and from your family.

There are a variety of opportunities that let you learn something new but in a more flexible learning environment. Travel nursing is one of these opportunities. You basically get to build up your nursing experience at a variety of different locations and environments. In a short amount of time, you gain more hands on knowledge than you would learn over the course of a few years in the classroom. You can work in a hospital and learn emergency medicine, or specialize in a more specific area like cancer treatment or infant / child care. When you have learned all you need to learn, you can move on to a new area while gaining valuable experience but still working and making money.

You also have the ability to sign up for nursing classes at your local college. You do not always have to enroll for an entire degree program but you can focus on specific classes that teach you what you are looking to learn. I found this to be most helpful, as I could take classes that got me valuable experience for jobs I was looking to apply for. I did not always need to have a specific degree in order to apply, many facilities were just looking for some education or experience for a certain focus.

Scholarships Skyrocketed My Graphic Designs Career

Anyone who is passionate about art, knows that this is not a very financially rewarding career at the onset. You need to not only establish yourself, you need to be good enough that people are willing to pay their hard earned money for your products. When you are still in high school you simply think that once you finish your senior year you will be able to get work in any art studio and start making the big bucks. This journey is much more difficult than you imagine.

In order to get myself in the best possible position to earn more money, I need to secure an art degree. In order to get an art degree, i needed to go to a great art school. I lived with my mother, who supported three kids on a waitress salary, she was in no position to send me to any college let alone an expensive art school. I could see in her eyes that it broke her heart that she couldn’t help me with my dreams, but I had a plan. My art teacher told me that I should enter some art contest to win prize money for my tuition. She them pointed me in the direction of art scholarships.

I had no idea what an art scholarship was, but the top prize was definitely enough to get me to take notice. Here was the opportunity I needed to further my education and get my degree, putting me in the best position possible to start earning top dollar in this highly competitive field. I entered these scholarships and really took the time to focus on exactly they required. I got my mother to help me with the scholarships, having her critique my work and help me to craft the final result so it was the best possible work I could produce.

We got second place prize money on one scholarship, and were still waiting to here from one of the larger programs. They called my mother at work to tell her that not only did I win, they were going to pay for my school, my supplies, and my training materials too. I was going to live the dream, all in part to the generous scholarships that are waiting for talented individuals to take advantage of today. I owe everything I have to these programs, and I tell students I come in contact with each day that they need to focus on those programs to get the best possible education available.

The Exciting World Of Having A College Degree

Not everyone in this world is cut out for college. This is a fact. However, this is not an excuse for those of us who can indeed go after it. I learned this first hand when I launched my college career.

While I was in high school I had been on the fence about going to college. I had the idea that I could perhaps go into the working world instead. I thought that somehow this might be a better use of my time. I was wrong. I quickly realized that there were few jobs for those who did not possess a college degree, and many of those jobs that did exist were not great in terms of pay. I realized right then and there that I would have to figure something else out if I was serious about getting a career.

My plan was to go to college and figure it out from there. I did not know for sure what I wanted to study. I learned quickly though that this was not a matter of huge importance. It is possible for a person to figure these things out along the way. Those who have yet to make up their mind have the opportunity to do so while they are there at the school. This was the position that I found myself in. I did not have it all figured out, but I realized that I also had time to get those ducks in a row.

It was amazing to me to see the support that I was receiving from professors and others on campus whose job it was to help make sure that I was successful. I did not realize that schools had programs like this. They wanted to see me with a degree in my hand as much as I wanted to earn that degree.

It did not take long for me to figure out what I wanted to do while I was at school. I decided that I wanted to give back to this community that had treated me so well. It was decided then and there that I would go into education. If I could seek out my degree in that, then I would go ahead and do so. This was what made it possible for me to get through school in the first place, and I wanted to offer that gift back to others.
