Pearl Said:What career could I pursue if I want to study diseases but I don't want to be a nurse or doctor?
We Answered:doesn't sound like nursing is for you- i'm a nurse- i get paid low (base salary is the same as what 15 year old supermarket cashiers earn), work crap hours, and i DO NOT spend any of my time studying diseases. i really don't think any nurse really specialises in that area- a nurse would specialise in how a disease affects a person, not how it's spread... diseases and how they're spread is just not an area a nurse is trained in- they would have to do another course like science or something.
it really sounds like epidemiology, biology, science- some sort of stream like that is more your field.
it may take years for you to get a job where you earn good money- you have to be talented, smart, and you have to build a reputation for yourself. you'll probably start at the bottom- cleaning test tubes in the science lab and stuff- or given boring stuff to do. but thats the way it is- you have to build knowledge and reputation before anyone will put you in a high-paying role.
Cheryl Said:What can I say to persuade them to reconsider my application?
We Answered:"Unfortunately when I contacted Human Resources a few days ago I was informed that the research team would not be moving on with my application, or anyone else’s application"
You stated they are not moving on with ANYONES applications. I would take this to mean that the position either was no longer needed at all, or that they decided to give it to someone internally, or even double it up on a current employee.
If you have questions, call them or go up there and talk to them. A phone call would be better than an email. In person would be even better, if its an option.
Positions fall through all the time. Especially nowdays...the recession is still going on.
Its also the end of the year for a lot of businesses, and most will not start hiring again until after February of next year.
It is possible they passed thier deadline for hiring an assistant and cannot proceed until further notice.
No one can answer for these people, except these people. And they are the ones you need to speak with.
If you are going to email them, keep it very simple and direct, dont go off on a tangent and bore them to death....your application will definately get "lost".
Here is a possible email:
Dear (persons name you interviewed with or applied with):
My name is (state your first and last name); I recently had the priviledge of interviewing with your fine organization for the Research Assistant position.
I was informed that no applications would be considered. I would like to inquire as to whether the position was filled, or if the position has been eliminated?
Would I also be able to find out how my interview for the position was rated? I am very interested in reapplying for this position if necessary.
Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to review my letter, it is appreciated.
Kristina Said:I need to know a career path?
We Answered:Logistics and supply chain management for a "World is flat" perspective. Fantastic international opportunities.
But If you want to be in public health, and make decent money, you should focus on becoming a Doc. or working for the government.
Carrie Said:What could I do with a major in International Studies?
We Answered:You'd better have a leg up in Russian to excel.
As for the rest you probably can do no wrong.
Ida Said:What should I study in college?
We Answered:1. History and English - Well, there is always the possibility of becoming a teacher or professor. You could always specialize in a certain area or period of history, tailored to your interests of course.
If you don't want to take the teaching route, you can always be a historian or the like. These don't match your want for helping people too much though.
2. When I think of helping people, I usually think of a health science career. It's a bit out there, but an associates or bachelors degree in Mortuary science helps many people everyday. It has the medical side and mostly involves comforting grieving families and the like. Most of the math involved is either the business math classes you have to take or involved with chemistry. (I'm planning on becoming a mortician, and helping people is the main focus of the job. I once wanted to be a doctor, too. But like you, I suck at math.You just have to have a stomach of steel! The pay doesn't touch a doctor's salary though.)
Dead people creep you out too much? There are so many ways to help people in need. Social workers, counselors, therapists, nurses, doctors, etc. (Once again, back to the medical field :p)
3. Seriously look at your interests and decide. If you are attracted to a medical career because you want to help others, then go for it. If you want to become a historian, go for it. It just takes a lot of weighing options and such. (I know I'm not really in a position to give advice, being just a year younger than you, but I've done so much career searching it isn't even funny).
Just keep looking into majors and careers. Take a few online career assessment tests. Talk to school counselors. Just keep researching and it will hit you!
If worse comes to worse, enroll in college with an undecided major. Get the feel of freshman classes and see what you like and dislike.
