One of the most effective ways to find a job lead is through networking. Spread the word that you are looking for a job. Start with the people you know – tell your family, friends, friends of your parents, parents of your friends, neighbors, people who are on your bowling team, people from church, your hairstylist, acquaintances from your children’s school- EVERYONE. Ask if they know someone who could help you get a job interview at one of your targeted companies. You will be surprised who can make a telephone call and help you set up a job interview.

“that a law school may admit no more than 10% of an entering class without requiring the LSAT from students in an undergraduate program of the same institution as the J.D. program; and/or students seeking the J.D. degree in combination with a degree in a different discipline. Applicants admitted must have scored at the 85th percentile nationally, or above, on a standardized college or graduate admissions test, specifically the ACT, SAT, GRE, or GMAT; and must have ranked in the top 10% of their undergraduate class through six semesters of academic work, or achieved a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or above through six semesters of academic work.” [i]

Going to college can be an exciting time. Students just graduating from high school, especially, have a newfound sense of freedom and exploration.

Here are a few pieces of advice that will help students at any level stay focused.
If you think the decision to go back to school as an adult to earn your business degree is a risk, you are in good company. According to a report released by Monster Worldwide in conjunction with Millennial Branding, willingness to take risks when it comes to your career increases with age.
Even before you graduate from your program, you’ll probably start collecting recommendations, making calls to employers, and sending out your cover letters and resumes. You may even land you a few interviews in that time. How you conduct yourself in the interview, though, can make or break a contract.
Massage therapists bring stress relief and muscular healing to clients with just a touch. The demand for massage therapists continues to grow, not only for relaxation, but for physical therapy, rehabilitation, pain management, etc. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics has predicted that employment for massage therapists will increase 20% faster than the average job growth rate between 2010 and 2020. This is not surprising as a greater variety of organizations are starting to hire these specialists. Aside from massage studios and resort spas, private offices, hospitals, fitness centers, dance academies, and even shopping malls now employ individuals with massage therapy training.

Think back to when you were a child and the things you learned growing up. You probably learned that when building a tower of blocks, the only way to make it tall was to keep each side even. When coloring with crayons, you learned that there was a happy medium between the child who scribbled all over the page and the one who spent hours making sure to color within all the lines. You may also have learned that when making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, too much jelly was way too sweet and too much peanut butter was just “yucky.”
