The Key to Success

Students face many challenges when completing a degree. The most important tool that you have in your arsenal is a positive attitude. If you start school with the idea that absolutely nothing will stop you from getting your degree, you will succeed. The challenges you may face while in school—child care or time to complete homework, for example—will seem small compared to the amazing feeling when you finally receive your diploma.

Learning From Lectures: A Vital Skill

Students who attend college know that going to class is important. However, it is often difficult to make it class. Maybe your professor is boring, or you don’t feel a connection to the material. Although these things may be true, it is up to you to try to connect with the class and the lecture.

What to do if You Have to Miss Class

Few people, if any, go through their college career without having to miss a class or two along the way.  Illness arise, emergencies pop up, perhaps the appeal to stay in bed is simply too great, but whatever the reason, whether legitimate or not, missing out on classes in college is not something that a person should take lightly.
Skipping out or being forced to miss college courses can cause a student to fall behind in the class, fail to turn in an assignment or project, miss important information like test schedules, or miss tests themselves.  And even if the class has nothing more than a lecture from the professor, the student who misses the class will have missed out on the importation information delivered through the lecture.

In smaller companies, one or two human resources professionals may be hired to handle all of the company’s HR needs. In larger organizations, the duties are divvied up between several employees or an entire department.

7 Fashion Blunders You Don’t Know You’re Making When Job Interviewing

Congratulations! You have a job interview! Just like you need to prepare yourself for the questions your interviewer is likely to ask, you need to prepare yourself for the impression you’re going to make on the people you meet. Your business management and accounting degree isn’t going to be as impressive if you walk into the office looking like someone who works at a landscaping company. All the gerontology training in the world isn’t going to convince a hiring manager that you’re the mature and responsible candidate they’re looking for if you show up in overalls and pigtails.
