Searching for information:
One of the difficulties I encountered during my internship was to find the information they asked me. Indeed, although the Internet is a wonderful source of information, some are not available, paying or very hard to find. This makes it very easy to get lost in the sources, dates, references; especially ... I struggled to find the business contacts that I had to explore.
The cold-calling:
One task that has been the hardest for me was the cold-calling the hotels. Indeed, for most companies, I only had the phone number of the standard and it was very common for the switchboard does not put me in contact with the services I wanted to contact. Indeed, she receives many calls from the same type per day and often has instructions not to take action. I therefore had to develop a more than convincing arguments for action on my calls.

Lack of feedback:
I basically made small missions that were part of large projects of the agency. Therefore, I have not had the opportunity to see the purpose of my work for my internship ended before these projects end.
Gap Analysis:
As I said before, I had very little feedback on my work and it is very difficult for me to analyze the gap between my targets and concrete achievements.
Nevertheless, my tutor has always seemed happy with my work when I presented what makes me say that I met my goals for this course.

As in many areas within the first weeks in RateTiger were crucial to the success of my internship.
Integrate sales and marketing team of a company, more English, and an industry not known at all requires a commitment and an immediate incentive to quickly become an effective member in a team and not a weak link that slows the chain.
My first days were therefore limited to this, introduce me to all products RateTiger, read the press kits, brochures, visit websites, etc ... After…...

Adults with Learning Difficulties

...“People with Learning Difficulties are unique individuals with their own likes and dislikes, history and opinions. They have the same rights as everybody else” To begin my assignment I will be discussing the history of social exclusion in relation to people with l’earning difficulties/disabilities . I will then outline process of Social work and in particular I will be focusing on intervention and how intervention has been used in relation to my chosen case study. In addition to this I will pay attention to a number of key issues in relation to society’s views on people with Learning Difficulties. I will also be discussing what Laws, Policies and Practices have been implemented to protect people with learning difficulties from oppression and discrimination and how effective these Laws have actually been in assisting people with Learning Difficulties to live the life they choose to live. During the late 19th century in particular, socially excluding people with learning disabilities was particularly inherent. At the time, those with ‘mental deficiencies’ were regarded as degenerates, and would often be blamed for social problems such as crime and poverty. This in turn led to the removal and institutionalisation of people thought to be ‘feeble minded’ and those referred to as ‘idiots’. Wolf Wolfensberger first published his thoughts about normalisation in 1972, through his works ‘The principle of Normalization in human service’. Wolfensberger argued that many of the......

Learning Difficulties - Dyslexia

...Learning difficulties – Dyslexia On 7th November 1896, the first description of dyslexia was published in the British Medical Journal, described as ‘a case of congenital world blindness’ by a Sussex GP, Dr Pringle Morgan (Ott, 1997:6). Morgan’s study was surrounded around a child called Percy. ‘... In spite of [...] laborious and persistent training, he can only with difficulty spell out words of one syllable’. His head teacher claimed he could have been one of the smartest children within the school if the instruction was entirely oral not written (Squires & McKeown, 2006:1). The National institute of Child Health and Human development (NICHD), 2002, define dyslexia as ‘a specific learning disability that is neurological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a cognitive deficit or imperfection in the phonological component of language ‘that [are] often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction’ (Nicolson & Fawcett, 2008:11). Secondary consequences may include problems in reading, comprehension and a reduced writing level which can impede the growth of vocabulary and background knowledge (Flora, 2009:4). There is no universal definition surrounding dyslexia, but it is now an officially recognised learning disability under the disability legislation: SENDA 2001(for......

One of the primary difficulties that entrepreneurs face is raising capital. Finding out what types of difficulties entrepreneurs face in raising capital, and how the government and private sector can help to eliminate them, is the subject of this report. This report is an attempt to critically evaluate and review the current problems of acquiring for entrepreneurs. The government itself has not shown concerns about the capital market and hence has not given it priority in the national budget, but even if it did it alone cannot ensure the development of the capital system for entrepreneurs. That is where the private sector needs to come in. This report will also identify the possible steps the private sector and government can take to eliminate the problems of acquiring capital for entrepreneurs. INTRODUCTION Successful entrepreneurs are a blessing to any economy. They bring new marketable ideas, products and innovation. They bring new technology for greater efficiency.

Common Difficulties Encountered by High School Students in Philippines

...サイネセズ アナド ヒウメニテズ Vol. 1. No. 2. May 2012 curriculum, specifically in the basic education. Our elementary pupils are required to have nine to ten subjects competing for time allocations. More time is allotted for subjects like English, Science and Mathematics with other subjects like health, music, values education, civics integrated into the Makabayan curriculum. Added to this are enrichment subjects like Computer literacy, Ethics among others (especially in the private schools). This reflects the priorities of the government in educating our young people. It is a reality that a grade 1 pupil carries so many books to school (wondering whether all these materials are actually read in the class). This overloaded curriculum results to difficulty in knowledge and skills absorption among our pupils. With this practice how can we expect our young people to develop love of country, patriotism, and other nationalistic traits, when their concepts of these are not properly taught? Worse, many pupils drop out of school before they reach the sixth grade because of poverty, thus increasing their chances of losing the incipient literacy acquired, and therefore, forfeit the privilege of developing patriotic and nationalistic attitudes. This sad state, proliferate the cycle of poverty that the Filipino masses experience. With the constant change in the basic education curriculum, teachers need to upgrade themselves in order that they can properly implement these changes. Upgrading......

Corruption as a Difficulty in Everyday Annawadian Life

...Corruption as a Difficulty in Everyday Annawadian Life In Katherine Boo’s novel Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity we are thrown into a slum in Mumbai, Annawadi and are shown that corruption is an undeniable difficulty that the Annawadians face in their everyday lives. “For every two people in Annawadi inching up, there was one in a catastrophic plunge” (24) the people of Annawadi are in such a state because of all the corruption. As soon as they get ahead there’s someone there to remind them where they belong, living their lives barely scraping by in the slums. The corruption in Mumbai has become the status quo, denying citizens of even their basic rights making everyday life a difficulty. Early on in the novel Katherine Boo shows us that corruption is an everyday difficulty that many of the people from the slums of Mumbai face. Mr. Kamble, a man living in the Annawadi slum, has a bad heart and needs a heart valve replacement in order to get his job back with the sanitation department. He goes to one of Mumbai’s public hospitals where the operation of a heart valve replacement should cost very little but “the hospital surgeons wanted under-the-table money. Sixty thousand rupees, said the surgeon at Sion Hospital. The doctor at Cooper Hospital wanted more” (24). Mr. Kamble would have been able to go back to work and provided for his family if these doctors would have been doing their jobs and not trying to take advantage of a man in...

Difficulties Encountered by Accounting Students in Their on-the Job Training

...DIFFICULTIES ENCOUNTERED BY ACCOUNTING STUDENTS IN THEIR ON-THE JOB TRAINING Chapter 1 THE PROBLEM AND ITS SETTINGS Introduction of the Study A student apprenticeship program is an organized course training plan carefully intended to transfer relevant knowledge, skills, and outlooks within a designated period of time from a proficient practitioner in a precise field of study or profession to a novice student who preferably has completed a speculative program study. In some cases, schools call this an apprenticeship program, practicum program, or on the-job training program. They all mean the similar thing and the general purpose is to keep an eye on a common thread. Apprenticeship is similarly a professional relationship between a student (the apprentice) and a skillful professional (the trainer or mentor), in which the student is obliged to diligently conform and learn from the expert professional. On the other hand, the expert professional is pleased to facilitate the learning procedure by exposing the apprentice to a carefully planned program of casual instruction, diverse set of meaningful work experiences, and a fair valuation of learning outcomes through applied tests. They also say that for a comprehensive and effective program of a study, a sound student apprenticeship program is necessary to be able to develop a well-rounded and competent graduate ready to embark on a professional career. The components of a sound student apprenticeship program are......

INTRODUCTION Accounting is concerned with collecting, analyzing, recording, and summarizing financial information. The purpose is to help people who used this information to make more informed and good decisions. One of the mistakes that many people have thought about accounting is that you have to be very strong in math. We tend to think that it is more about logic and analytical reasoning. You need to learn a lot of rules and make something fits the rules. It is considered a difficult major. Everyone has heard that accounting is all about numbers or being good in math to take accounting. Unfortunately, for many people, just mentioning the word "math" can turned off their interest in accounting and can bring back childhood memories of them having difficulties with long division and fractions or geometry homework, and later avoiding......

Overcoming Difficulties

...Raveena Bhogal 68533 0011 Justify ways of overcoming difficulties that may arise when implementing anti-discriminatory practices in health and social care settings. Anti-discrimination is promoted when dealing with conflict as it stops individuals from discriminating against others. Dealing with conflict correctly is needed in health and social care settings to promote anti-discriminatory behaviour as aggression and tension can build up between the service users or staff. It is important for a health and social care professional to be trained to deal with conflict correctly so that the service users don’t become stressed or feel unvalued. If the conflict is dealt with professionally and positively then discrimination will not take place, therefore this promotes anti-discrimination by ensuring that no individuals feel discriminated against. All of the service users or staff members are treated equally, they are treated the way they want and need to be. On the other hand, difficulties may arise if the conflict is not dealt with in the correct manner. If a member of staff was to treat one service user better than another, then this will cause a larger conflict and will make the situation become very negative. For example, if a two service users wanted to watch two different TV programs that were showing at the same time then a member of staff should be trained to deal with this type of situation. The professional should treat the service users equally; they should say to......

Difficulties in Baby Boomers

...1.) What difficulties—from retiring baby boomers in the United States to a graying China, to the massive overhang of Europe’s elderly—can private corporations, governments, and other sectors expect as the aging revolution unfolds across the globe? How will changing demographics affect workforce composition? Retirement age? Pension outlays? Taxation? Immigration? Economic growth? How can governments, corporations, and nongovernmental organizations work together to address these issues? China is expected to lower production rates as people seem to be getting older and the amount of children that people can have in controlled and kept down to 1 per couple. With the population of China decreasing, the amount of workers will also decrease which will lower the amount of products that China is able to produce for the world. Since the 90s we have been seeing a decrease in the labor force. According to Rafferty (2014), retirement age is said to increase in China from 55 to 60 for women and from 60 to 65 for men to keep up with other nations which would allow more products to be created. The decrease in population will also decrease the economy. The families which only have 1 child, only underscores the challenge of supporting the growing numbers of elderly Chinese (Wang, 2010). This means that only 1 child will be the one supporting two parents at the same time. This will bring many other issues for that child’s economic growth. Laws in China require the child to support the......

Difficulties of Defining Terrorism, Assignment 1

...Assignment 1: Difficulties of Defining Terrorism Name University Professor CRJ 440, Terrorism and Antiterrorism Assignment 1: Difficulties of Defining Terrorism Today’s world is one where states are increasingly subject to the consequences of globalization, and because of this national security has become a key topic of every roundtable. There’s been no such international phenomenon that has demonstrated such evolve and garnered as much attention as the growth of terrorism. The truth is terrorism has existed throughout time; subsequently, the events of 9/11 propelled the United States into what has become labeled the War on Terrorism. With this, governments worldwide were required to implement protective policies against such attacks or in some cases take military action. With such policies, the development of counter-terrorist strategies require a definition of what terrorism is. According to Clarke (2009), the difficulty in assigning a truly comprehensive definition to terrorism lies in the fact that, not only is it challenging to be specific when motives, targets and methods differ so broadly from case-to-case, but the complexity of untangling the overlaps within each of these categories makes the task virtually impossible. Terrorism as defined by FBI The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) classifies terrorism in three branches: international terrorism, domestic terrorism, and federal crime of terrorism. As referenced in Chapter 113B of the Code 18...

The New World: Adapting to Difficulty

...this, the settlers were forced to adapt to the difficulty of the dystopia. Ultimately, the New World was a combination of both utopian and dystopian qualities. There is a major contrast between utopias and dystopias. Each is characterized by opposite qualities, making the two entirely different. While a utopia is considered to be a perfect world that is void of conflict, a dystopia is regarded as an imperfect world that is full of difficulty. Although these definitions appear to be rather definitive, the New World shows a correlation to both. However, it is clear that the New World has more correspondence to a dystopia than to a utopia. The New World presents several utopian qualities. A utopia is characterized by a peaceful, safe environment, abundant with opportunity. Utopias are generally considered to be perfect. Ideally, a utopia would be free of any conflict, poverty or disease. The New World offered the settlers a chance at a new life. They viewed it as a land full of knowledge and undiscovered resources. In Christopher Columbus’ Letter, he affirms that the beautiful land is perfect for planting and sowing, as well as building towns and villages (Belasco 82). Everyone was treated equally and they worked together to grow as a community. These are all characteristics of a utopia. Although the New World consists of many utopian attributes, a larger majority of them are dystopian. A dystopia is a place full of difficulty and hardships. It is unorganized, chaotic, and......
