The Ready For More scholarship was established as a way to reward students that demonstrate commitment to preparing for their future careers. As part of the application process the participants were asked to provide several working plans for achieving their career goals inclusive of steps they are taking now to ensure a successful transition into their careers. The Chicago, O’Hare Campus of Westwood College is proud of its winners and all who applied.
Slow Internet connections and poor cell service are two technology issues that drive even the most patient people insane. For potential college students, there are even more technology pet peeves that may be encountered when interfacing with your school, making it important to research a school’s technology systems and ask direct questions about how the systems and tools are specifically designed to benefit students.
As a college student you are expected to work hard and remain committed throughout your education—and most students expect, understandably, their hard work and commitment will help land them a job upon graduation. However, a college should work just as hard – or harder – to ensure its students are fully equipped to pursue their professional goals.
College is one of the most important investments most people will ever make. It’s not only a financial investment but it is also a significant investment of time and a huge personal commitment. With this kind of commitment comes certain expectations – and rightfully so. Some students expect teachers who are leading thinkers in their field while others put an emphasis on student activities or successful sports teams. Whatever the expectation, prospective students should always ask, “does this college match the investment I am making in them with an investment in me?”
It’s still a tough job market out there despite some recent economic turnaround. Giving your resume every advantage to stand out of the crowd may help you land a great job opportunity. Search engine optimization (SEO) can help your resume appear when potential employers search for qualified candidates online.
The term “rewarding career” can mean different things to different people. For many compassionate people helping others is a big part of what motivates them to get up and head to work every morning. Combine this drive with an interest in healthcare and you have what it takes to find a career as a medical assistant, healthcare office administrator or medical billing and coding professional to be very rewarding.
Find out how these three healthcare careers can help you make a change in people’s lives every day.
