Jeffery Said:Horse Careers- online courses or degree?
We Answered:Even 'hands on' degrees don't hold much weight in the equine industry (I know, I've got two, along with MANY other equine qualifications).
The equine industry relies heavily on personal recommendation, and 'hands on' experience, which is not a bad thing really. I've been 'head hunted' for most of my equine jobs, with my employers not being too bothered about my qualification certificates. They chose me because of my reputation and references.
That said, keeping your knowledge up to date is very important. I could only give you links to well recognised UK on line equine study courses, and I'm guessing you are in the US.
EDIT: That's a fair enough point. Proving your knowledge will give you an edge against cut throat competition. Sorry I can't recommend any courses in the US, having no experience of them. Is there any chance you could do a day release course, associated with a college?
We have things like this: http://www.warkscol.ac.uk/equistudy/
in the UK. It works well for mature students, with families to support.
Good luck with furthering your equine education, and all the best for the future!
Louise Said:punctuation help please?
We Answered:I've put my changes in parentheses in capital letters.
Secondly, being involved in the criminal justice field is a risk (IN AND OF) itself. Being a private investigator is even more of a dangerous job then (SHOULD BE THAN, NOT THEN) an ordinary police officer. A private investigator (NEED APOSTROPHE S TO SHOW POSESSION: INVESTIGATOR'S) job is to investigate on (OMIT WORD "ON") individuals they believe are or have committed a crime; therefor(THEREFORE), this might involve following suspects around and watching them closely with at times no protection or a gun(WHILE AT TIMES BEING UNPROTECTED). Ferguson’s Career Guidance Center online site says(INSERT COMMA: SAYS, "PRIVATE) “Private Investigators generally do not use firearms on the job(INSERT SEMICOLON ;) they may carry a gun if an assignment warrants the need for one”. (PUT PERIOD INSIDE QUOTATION MARKS. .")According to Bureau of Labor Statistics Website(INSERT COMMA, OMIT PHRASE "THEY STATE") they state work can be very dangerous because of the awkward hours during different periods of the day (REPHRASE SENTENCE FOR MORE CLARITY). The investigator could be tired from long hours of surveillance, (OMIT COMMA AND PHRASE "AND WILL " : SURVEILLANCE AND NOT)and will not be able to react to a situation the same way they would if there were a good night’s sleep. (REWORK WHOLE SENTENCE: THE INVESTIGATOR MAY BE TIRED FROM LONG HOURS OF SURVEILLANCE AND NOT BE ABLE TO REACT TO A SITUATION AS WELL AS IF HE HAD A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP.)
Overall, the paragraph is very well written. It is just a few technical errors that are bogging you down. I would suggest getting some more practice in. Hope this helped!

Ryan Said:Whats the Best way to apply for jobs i know im going to get ?
We Answered:applying for a job is one question and applying for the right job is another. before applying for a job find out first where you're good at in terms of skills, interests and competence so your chances of being accepted is higher. secondly, go targeted selection. apply only for jobs that you really feel you are qualified for and in companies that has openings. go to their website and find out if they have openings rather than search engines where you compete with the whole world.
Tammy Said:Applying for a job through Craigslist?
We Answered:Craigslist is actually a good way to go but you must be VERY careful. The link you posted is a scam.
The other answers are right...there are lots of scams. Weeding them out can be difficult.
I'm using Craigslist for job searching as well. Believe it or not I've had better luck there than anywhere else.
1) Don't ever contact the job poster if...
- Company name is not listed.
- No other contact info is shown, like an email address or phone number.
- Email address listed is for a free email account like Yahoo, Hotmail, or Gmail.
2) Don't ever fill out a job application that is not on the company's official website or the official website of the employment agency.
3) If the job application site continually tries to trick you into clicking on "off topic" links (like for a home biz) before showing you any info about a position it is a scam.
4) Do post your resume in the resume section of the city you will be relocating to.
- Make it a brief and to the point paragraph highlighting your skills and accomplishments. I did this and had an honest employer schedule an interview less than 24 hours later.
- You will get quite a few emails from scammers so beware but they're fairly easy to weed out.
- Don't apply at any website where you're sent to a generalized job search website that will charge the job seeker to view and apply for jobs.
- When you get responses that appear legit, use the part of their email address after the "@" to look up their official site. If there isn't one, don't bother with them...it's probably a scam.
Terrence Said:How do I apply for Starbucks online?
We Answered:The website says to turn in the application at a store near you. I think someone at that store was either messing with you or doesn't want to take your application.
Here's the specifics of what I saw:
How can I apply for hourly retail opportunities?
Each Starbucks retail store independently hires and manages its own team of part-time and full-time hourly partners (employees). You can get an application at any Starbucks location or download the application online. To find the Starbucks nearest you, use our Store Locator. Then visit the Starbucks locations that interest you and submit an application.
If they still wont take it, call corporate.
