Lloyd Said:Will the Dems ever hit a low of criminality or just keep going like they are?
We Answered:Democrats are becoming synonymous with corruption
Mae Said:Any tips for finding jobs other than filling applications at stores, Craigslist, Monster and Careerbuilder?
We Answered:I think filling out store applications is still your best bet. It may take longer (and you do have to answer all the questions), but they usually move faster when hiring people than companies that place ads online. The average ad costs about $300-$400 so they want to leave it up as long as possible to generate enough applications to make it worth their while, which slows down the hiring process dramatically.
Have you considered doing something with your hands like road construction? Or working freelance from home to build up a portfolio? Try a site like getafreelancer.com (or search Yahoo for similar freelance computer help sites).
Stanley Said:what is the difference between an RN nurse one with an associates and one with a bachelors?
We Answered:The BSN is a science degree as is the Associates degree in nursing. With either you would probably need the prerequisite courses, so it is likely you do not have many covered with your current degree.
An associate degree in nursing is a basic entry level degree for a professional nursing career. It is a limited program which focuses on the practical aspects of nursing, and does not spend as much time on the theoretical aspects or the background information. Also the bachelors degree spends more time on public health community medicine, leadership and research. Both have the same amount of clinical education.
When taking the NCLEX-RN examination the BSN graduates have a higher pass rate, but the ADN graduate pass rate is still acceptable.
For an entry level position at a hospital, both degrees are fine, and both will make the same base salary. Some facilities pay a differential for the BSN others do not. The average BSN graduate only makes about $2500 to $3500 more a year in the entry level hospital positions nationally.
BSN graduates do, generally get hiring preferences for many positions, and for some positions the BSN is a requirement. When an RN is looking to advance from the staff nurse level most facilities now require a BSN or higher.
In your situation, an ADN would be quicker (about 2.5 to 3 years) compared to 4-5 years for the BSN (depending on how many courses you still need). You can always take a BSN completion program either in residence or on line later if you decide to stay in nursing.
Also with your background, a good career option would be legal nurse consultant, where you advise lawyers on the nursing issues for lawsuits and other legal matters.
LPN is another option, taking less time but with much more of the less desireable aspects of the nursing care, and 1/2 the income of an RN.
Good luck with whatever you decide.
EDIT: I love it when Jill and I have similar answers, it means the answer is pretty good! With your particular degree, you may need a more significant amount of foundation courses for the BSN which is why I did not refer to the accelerated BSN program, as they are normally looking at science degrees, and people who have a strong foundation which meets most of the BSN requirements.
Nicole Said:Why can't I get a JOB?
We Answered:Trying to work out how to word this.....
You've been an entertainment host with Disney, a tour guide at a museum and a journalist
You've recently tried to become a flight attendant - you seem to be under the impression that you have a lot of experience in this job when I can clearly see that you don't. Yes you've worked with customers in your previous jobs and you would work with customers if you were a flight attendant, but seriously all jobs involve working with customers to some sort of level so having 10 years customer service is irrelevant because employers just expect you to be able to work with customers, its not something that sets you apart from the other candidates going for the job. Its also a similar situation with the teaching assistant job you applied for. None of your previous jobs involved teaching - so you don't have any experience in this either. The writing job, at least you had some experience in. The job market is tough though and you are competing against others who have degrees and experience in writing too. You're not the only person in the world with a degree and writing experience. The fact that you wrote for a "big" newspaper is irrelevant. You could write for Hello magazine - it won't guarantee you a job with anyone else. You've maybe worked in a "world famous museum" instead of a "museum" but guess what working in a world famous museum doesn't guarantee you another job.
Another belief that many graduates seem to hold is that just because they have a degree, they seem to believe that they have some automatic right to a well paid job with great perks. Employers will always value work experience over a degree. A degree shows you can study, but work experience in a field shows that you can actually do the job. Even in jobs where a degree is required, an employer is still going to take the person on who has the most knowledge and experience of the job they are applying for and subject to them having the degree thats the person they will take on. So yeah, while its great that you have a degree - no you have no right to get a job with a $10 million salary per year. Did you never give it any thought when you were offered the interview for the tour guide that you could work your way up the ladder into a higher position? With large companies, the problem can be getting in in the first place. Once you are in - they can train you, they'll see how efficient your work is and develop you into higher posts where you'll be earning more money.
The other impression I get off you when I read what you said, is that you have an over inflated ego. While its good that you're confident in your own ability, if you are too cocky and overbearing, it can actually put people off you. Maybe a possible explanation to why employers don't want to employ you. They want someone easygoing not someone who thinks they are better than everyone else.
I do think however you were a bit unlucky with the writer job interview that you went to. Sometimes though your hardest attempt just isn't enough. The employer must have thought that someone else come across better than yourself. But don't be disheartened just keep trying. You could even contact some local newspapers/magazines and ask for some voluntary work with them. You're probably thinking, I'm not doing that I've got a degree bla bla bla, but little things like doing a couple of weeks voluntary work can make a huge difference in an interview.
Anita Said:Why will NO ONE hire me?
We Answered:No, a college graduate can take an hourly wage. Take whatever job you can get. It is really difficult finding work right now for everyone. Your not above any job. You sound like you have a very overinflated ego. Interviewers can pick up on that. The next interview you go on-be humble.
