NETWORKING AFTER COLLEGE by Tony Lee

Summary
The article Networking after College by Tony Lee describes the job hunting after college. Lee argues that it is difficult to find a job if a person does not know any contact because the employer simply just ignores the applicant, certain with a polite manner. Lee provides data for his argument, “a survey of more than 1500 successful job hunters shows that 63% found new positions by tapping their networks of friends, family members, acquaintances and anyone else who would help. In comparison, only 11% found jobs by answering ads, and just 2% by sending unsolicited resumes to company recruiters, reports a New York-based career consulting firm” (Lee, p.10, 2013). When one knows that he needs to have connection in order to find a job, Lee recommends a way to start networking. There are 3 groups of people who can help one introduce a job or a contact: 1. Brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, and other helpful relatives; college friends and past professors; 2. Former bosses and co-workers; 3. Neighbors and family acquaintances. Among these people, one should choose the most potential ones to ask for a job or a contact. Lee also provides some instructions for talking to the contacts. According to Lee (p.11, 2013), “you need to be relentless in using your network contacts, but don’t be defensive if they don’t return your calls,” says Taunee Besson, president of a career consulting firm in Dallas, Texas. Not only for find a job, networking is important enough for one to keep himself active in his career path. To maintain the networking, Ms. Besson (Lee, p.11, 2013) recommends a few tips: 1. Set networking goal; 2. Build networking into your daily schedule; 3. People…...

... (Clarke P, 2011, p. 1) This is how he envisaged developing and retaining a good culture within Tesco. He also developed a seven part strategy ‘to reflect changing consumer trends, and the increasingly global nature of Tesco.’ (Clarke P, 2011, p. 1) According to Clarke (Clarke P, 2011, pp. 1-2) the seven point plan that he developed is as follows; 1. …to grow the UK core. 2. …to be an outstanding international retailer, both in stores and online. 3. …be as strong in everything it sells as we are in food. 4. …retailing services. 5. …have a responsibility to the local community… 6. …be a creator of highly valued brands. 7. …to build our team so it can create more value... This is how Clarke led Tesco forward after a period of uncertainty due to the fact that the prestigious Sir Leahy was resigning. He stepped up and put his mark on the company while reinforcing confidence back into the company and its members as a whole by developing this strategy and by not formulating too much change. The cultural web as a theory was an extremely important tool for Clarke as if he did not utilize this tool he may not have identified the fact that so little change did in fact need to be implemented. Clarke portrayed great leadership characteristics throughout his takeover from Sir Leahy. ‘Leadership is the process of influencing an organisation (or group within an organisation) in its efforts towards achieving an aim or goal….

How to Find a Job After College

...The topic “how to find employment after college,” is likely one of the questions you hear most often from this generation. The education you’ve received up to this point ultimately leads to one place, the job search. You may come across so many kids who have obtained degrees in college but they still struggle to find jobs in their field of choice because their roles are no longer in-demand to their area. Finding a job isn’t easy, especially if this is the first time you’re looking, but it’s also far from impossible. The key is to prioritize what’s most important to you in the process. The first step to finding employment after college is to put discouragement aside. You need to have a plan and no matter how many times you apply for jobs you can't let your discouragement in not landing the position keep you from trying again and again. It is advised that people don’t follow their passion. Most passions do not translate into successful careers. Instead you need to look at your effort. Whatever it is you spend the most time doing may be the perfect career. This is because when you spend a lot of time doing something, much skill is gained making you an expert in that field. The second step to finding employment is to fully put yourself out there. You need to step out into the world and let it know you are there. You should create a personal profile on a job website or sign up on a social message board. This will help you get started in socializing. Young people should......

...or workers. Their decision has to be taken as the golden rule and should never be questioned. They plan out everything and order their subordinates to work according to their rules. For instance, if a company has an autocratic leader as the Managing Director, the employees in the company would have to work as per the rules set down by him. They would not be expected to make any contribution from their side, which may actually help in enhancing the productivity of the company. In short, the autocratic leader has full control of those around him and believes to have the complete authority to treat them as he wants.

Aspirations After College

...Since the moment I could move my hand I’d been drawing, dreaming and wanting to get my thoughts into the world. As I got older my talent branched off into other realms. I then realized that all I ever wanted to do was create, through any medium. Whether it be art, music fashion or film, I aspired to create. To ascend to a place where I can eternally fashion my whims and idylls is my final goal. My dreams for my future occupation are to (probably) finish college, find a studio, team of creative executives and eventually become a deity of sorts. To achieve these goals I have designated a certain path for myself called the: “do this or die plan”. Its implications are fairly personal and most will not be discussed in this essay, but it is fool proof because if not - I will die. Simple. Somewhere upon my winding path I’d want to design clothing. I’ll consider being a creationist focused on clothing at the time. My apparel would not be limited by sizes, ages, or genders. It will only be worn by the brazen and styled by those whom I deem fashionably responsible. The clothing itself would be made to express the tastes of a very latent very fashionably sound corner of your left brain. Another possibility I could see is interior design as a possible career in my future because houses nowadays lack dynamism. Not dynamism in terms of carpet in the kitchen or alligator suede blue couches, but in terms of southern living meets vogue décor. Interior design involve having a since of......

Does Social Networking Displace Study Habits and Media Use of College Students?

...Does social networking displace study habits and media use of college students? by Erlan D. Pasana BS Development Communication 2011 Thesis Visayas State University Students and social media. Photo credit: Febelle Dareen Rojas (VSU) As one of the media of communication, social networking plays an important role in people’s lives. Its usage may vary from one person to another depending on the benefits that this medium can provide for them. For students specifically, social networking serves as their channel to express their thoughts and feelings about a certain issue. It helps them in building up stronger relationships with their loved ones especially those who are living far away from them. It makes them more vigilant about the happenings in different places by getting news from their friends on the Internet. Most importantly, while it entertains them, it also helps them in doing research (Hargittai, 2007). Yet some university administrations perceive students’ social networking activities as detrimental to students’ academics and have blocked sites such as Facebook during office hours. But does social networking take away the time that students ought to spend on their study time and media use? This study aimed to find out Visayas State University (VSU) college students’ uses and motivations for social networking use and their effect on study habits and media use.

Career and Salary Opportunities After College

...Career and Salary Opportunities after College Does earning a college degree promise you higher pay and better job opportunities? This question is on everyone’s lips. Why go to college, invest a lot of money, and then not be promised a good paying job once you’re out off college? It seems that it should be obvious that the more education you receive, the better job and more money you will have in the future; however, this may not always be the case, so one must analyze two different areas in order to have the best chances of a good paying job. Career choice and type of degree are both factors when it comes to receiving a good job and higher pay after college. First it is important to know, or at least have a good idea, what career you want to have. Thanks to the internet, it is really easy to look online for different career opportunities that would best fit you. You can even take online quizzes that might help you to determine what career you should have if you are undecided. You can analyze what career choices sound appealing and also see which ones are rising in our country. According to William McGuiness at Huffington Post, “while college-educated Americans are less likely to collect unemployment, many of the jobs they do have aren't worth the price of their diplomas.” What they are saying is that once a person knows their career and they receive their diploma, they are not making enough money to cover their student loans. Unfortunately, there...

...Culture and Popular Culture. Mass culture theorists would argue that advertising is based on a passive audience. We see the advertisements, and then feel the need to go out and buy these commodities. An example of this can be the ‘I phone’. After seeing a advert on T.V about the I phone, we as a passive audience feel the need and relish upon the fact that we should be out there buying ourselves it. On the other hand Fiske believes that we make our own popular culture through resistance and that we do not consume passively. Fiske points out a particular research which shows that people’s attention to the television fades away when the adverts come on. He also points out that despite the mass number of advertisements we see daily we remember very few of them. Hence the reason why network marketing is slowly getting more popular particularly from the younger audience ranging from ages 14-25. In conclusion I believe that mass culture plays a strong part in making sure that we are passive consumers. Even though this is entirely true going back to the idea of I phones, latest computer games or even brand new Hollywood movie releases. These are all products that are there for us to consume and the continuous advertising via TV, newspapers, social networking site or even buses promote and pushes the audience towards paying close attention to it. Moving on however, I also am reluctant to agree with John Fiske that the audience does have a choice whether we buy or consume these......

...staring at the wall every single day. Brian Tracy puts it out this way, "You work eight hours per day for survival; everything over eight hours per day is for success." Ask any successful businessperson and they will tell us immediately that they had to work more than 60 hours per week at the start of their businesses. Be prepared to say goodbye to after-office drinks every day, or a regular weekend get-away trip. If we are in a start-up phase, we will have to breathe, eat and drink our business until it can stand on its own. Working hard will be easy if we have a vision, clear goals, and are passionate with what we do. 7. Constantly Look for Ways to Network.  In business, we are judged by the company we keep - from our management team, board of directors, and strategic partners. Businesses always need assistance, more so small businesses. Maybe the lady we met in a trade association meeting can help us secure funding, or the gentleman at a conference can provide us with management advise. It is important to form alliances with people who can help us, and whom we can help in return. To succeed in business, we need to possess good networking skills and always be alert to opportunities to expand our contacts. 8. Willingness to Learn.  We do not need to be a MBA degree holder or PhD graduate to succeed in our own business. In fact, there are a lot of entrepreneurs who did not even finish secondary education. Studies show that most self-made millionaires have average......

...Lee College Financial Statements ACC 380: Accounting for Not-For-Profit Organizations June 4, 2012 Lee College Financial Statements Why do Not-For-Profit organizations need financial statements? The accounting system for nonprofits is designed to capture the economic activities of the firm and its financial position. The financial statements are constructed based on the “Accounting Equation” in which: Assets = Liabilities + Net Assets (Keating, 2008). This equation is very helpful, but not show us how or why net assets change over time. This is the purpose of the financial statements. For Lee College, a private not-for-profit, the financial statements required under the FASB Statement 117 are the Statement of Financial Position, Statement of Activities, and Statement of Cash Flows (Copley, 2011). The focus of this paper will be on the Statement of Activities and the acceptable alternative. The Statement of Activities’ purpose is to show revenues, expenses, gains, losses, and reclassifications and to show the changes in net assets by net asset class (unrestricted, temporarily restricted, or permanently restricted) (Copley, 2011). FASB Statement 117, as stated earlier, requires the Statement of Activities as part of the three required financial statements for a private, not-for-profit college. However, there is an acceptable alternative to the Statement of Activities. An acceptable alternative to the Statement of Activities is to present two statements: 1) Statement...

The Effect of the Social Networking Site Facebook to the Academic Performance of the Students Under the College of Business and Accountancy

...Overview Social networking websites are currently being used regularly my millions of people. The use of social networking sites has been widespread that they have not only caught the attention of academic and industry researchers worldwide but also me, in particular. Social networking sites are now being investigated by numerous social science researchers and an increasing number of academic commentators are becoming more and more interested in studying Facebook, Twitter, and other social networking services, because of their probable impact on society. While the social networking sites have the same key aspects, the cultures and responses around them that become apparent are varied. Most sites help strangers connect with others based on shared personal interests, political and economic views, or simply recreational activities. Some sites accommodate distinct viewers, while others attract people based on similarities, such as common languages or shared racial, sexual, religious or nationality-based identities. Nonetheless, social networking sites have only one common goal. It is to encourage new ways to communicate and share information. Many students have been blaming various social networking sites for their steady decrease in grade point averages. This emergent phenomenon aroused us to look into social networking sites and why they affect fellow students‟ academic performances. The target population for this research are the students under the College of Business......
