20 October 2011 The Bachelors Degree as a Job Requirement Being an adult and returning to college after receiving the pink slip from my employer was a hard choice I had to make. I soon found out that in this economy seven years of experience as an executive assistant, Microsoft certificates and my good attitude just wasn’t enough to get a good job anymore. I wasn’t even being considered because my resume didn’t state I went to college and received a bachelor’s degree. Going to college is a huge commitment and responsibility. College provides us with the knowledge and credibility that employers seek in this demanding world today.
After all my homework and cheer activities are completed, my personal entertainment was also a big challenge for me to overcome. Since, I had so much going on I told myself to keep going and to conquer my distraction so I could advance in my nursing degree. Facing a lot of distractions in college I found that homework, athletics, and my personal entertainment are my biggest distraction to overcome in my nursing degree. After I finally graduated high school, I did not realized how important homework was until coming to college. When I showed up my first day of college I realized then how important homework really was.
I havce known since from the time that I was little that I wanted to do something healthcare Up until I discovered the Physician Assistant career, I wanted to be a doctor, but was hesitant to do so because of all the schooling, responsibilities, and extra stress that goes along with it. I am not saying that being a PA does not have responsibilities and is not stressful, but in comparison to a doctor, these items are considerably less of an issue. As I stated in my first reflection, I have a true passion for people and for helping them. NO matter what their problem may be, I am always trying to be the “helper” and do anything I can to make their day a little better than it was before. Having a career that is designed specifically to help people will fit me perfectly.
I always tell my kids that a college education is a key to success in life. I set myself as an example, after being out of school for so many years and then going back to college, takes a lot of motivation, dedication, and commitment. I want to better myself, my family, and to be able to say I accomplished my goal. Goals and accomplishments are two big priorities, which I value them exceedingly having the desire to reach them in life. In order to accomplish goals, a plan must be laid out.
Thank God- that I have been able to succeed in most of my goals. Despite the things that I went through in life, I thank Adversity for being in my life because it has made me prepare for future challenges. Also, it has helped me to recognize the importance in gaining my education to better my life and that of my daughter. I believe that though I am now a single mother, having my education will open doors for me and make me a good role model for my
Why Do I Want My GED? Now days, it is extremely hard to move forward in life without obtaining a GED or High school diploma. I do not want, or plan to be, one of those regretful people who fall behind in life because they never dedicated the time to graduate. Also, getting my GED is something I need to achieve if I ever want to get a decent job and build financial stability for myself and my family. Most importantly, I want to do thing in my life that I can be proud of and know that I was a good role model for my daughter.
Abraham Lincoln once said “Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.” I have been haunted by similar words, in my own head, for quite some time. I never finished college, yet I love to learn. I have always dreamed of completing a degree, owning a company, or working in an office. Now, given the opportunity, completing this degree will become my greatest achievement. I always feel that I have let myself down.
The week of graduation I was both happy and sad. I did not understand what my best friends meant by that feeling until that week. I had the sense of happiness because I worked very hard to get my degree and to be the only one in my family to graduate from college was a huge accomplishment. However, sadness played a big part in that too because I did not want to enter the real world and special people that helped raise me over the years was not here to share this important day with me, but I knew they were there in spirit. All these emotions came over me all the way up until I walked across the
Why I Want an MBA There are many reasons in my life that has helped me to decide “Why I Want an MBA?” How much education I obtain is fulfilling a personal goal that I set for myself a very long time ago, even though it has taken me some years to get there. First and foremost, it is very important for me to be a good role model, and an inspiration to my children and grandchildren; and to ensure that they understand that education leads to many successes in life. I have always believed in leading by example. Also, the changes in this global economy, along with my age and job security are some other reasons for my decision. Being able to influence and heighten my family members to aspire to greater and better things that life has to offer is very important to me, and I know that getting a good quality education will open more doors for them to be successful.
As I grew older, this dream faded as I gained other interests. At points, I wanted to be a teacher, a doctor, a veterinarian, or a princess, just to name a few. As I got into my upper years of high school, I began realizing that maybe choosing a career was not going to be as easy as I thought. As I debated over certain types of careers to pursue, my parents have always been there to help me out when I needed it and support my decisions about my future. They have also been very good at reminding me that I need to pursue a career that makes me happy, but still something that will be able to put food on the table.
