The career that I am interested in pursuing is that of a patient representative. I am currently on track, educationally, to pursue this career. With the help of the personality and traits questionnaire I was able to learn what is expected of a patient representative and if my personality is compatible with this profession. Becoming a patient representative will open doors to other career goals that I have. Kaplan University Career Services will be beneficial to me when it is time to create a resume and practice job interviews.
D. program, my goals in the short term will be to reinforce my technical knowledge and work on research that will enhance my skills in communication technology and extend the abstract understanding of utilization and generation of information. Upon completion of the Ph. D. program, my long-term objective is to get a research position in a learning institution where I will be able to share my experience and skills with other individuals passionate about the course. My extensive experience in the job market and exposure to numerous management disciplines will be a firm foundation for my studies towards my Ph. D. at your institution.
Surprisingly, I found that I was more productive at work. It never occurred to me that others could influence my work ethic until recently. I received a promotion and a raise at my current job, but that did not necessarily incentivize me to work harder. My promotion felt like a success, but only for a while. The job became more of a burden, due to some of the people I work with, and it was no longer fulfilling.
Besides viewing this process as a foundation for future knowledge and abilities, I have been anticipating this stage of gaining deeper and professional knowledge in psychology for a long time. To summarize, this goal is elicited from my passion and enthusiasm for psychology, to remain focused throughout these three years, instead of gaining fame or impress others. After graduation, I want to engage in a job related to psychology, allowing me to serve others by applying the knowledge learnt. It may not need to be anything very great; I just hope to contribute to the society’s wellbeing, whether it is in the clinical setting, corporate world or any other aspects. Most importantly, I hope to raise awareness and acceptance towards mental disorders.
Factors Affecting Lifelong Learning and Lifelong Education A Critical Reflection INTRODUCTION This paper will reflect on the factors affecting the lifelong learning and lifelong education based on my own experiences and observations with my students. Dave (1973) mentioned that physiological change and growth is another mainspring in lifelong learning occurring at different stages of life so I will discuss some stages of life of an individual concerning lifelong education and lifelong learning. Globalization and international competition, evolution of knowledge, development of information and technological communication, and modernization of living makes lifelong learning a requirement (S. Halimi,2005). Lifelong education as explained
The American Occupational Therapy Association’s Centennial Vision (American Occupational Therapy Association [AOTA], 2007) lays the road map for educators to successfully navigate to the destination of meeting AOTA’s goals for the profession. The development of a program or syllabus that focuses on subject-centered learning is key to facilitating student growth in knowledge of all topics that influence occupation (Hooper, 2010). A topic area related to occupation that can “produce a well-prepared, diverse workforce” (AOTA, 2007, p. 614) is increasing cultural competency. The development of a course that encompasses the topic of cultural competency and intervention will provide students with the skills necessary to successfully work with diverse
I would like to join Year Up because i would like the opportunity to better myself. Right now i feel like my life isn’t headed into the direction that i want it to, i feel like it’s at a dead end just living paycheck to paycheck, and i know there's more to life than that. I would love the chance to expand my mind and a better, more educated person. I would like to obtain more professional and life skills, more than what i currently have. I currently work at Rhode Island hospital where i've been work as a laundry aide for two years, i'm grateful for the opportunity to work for a company like Lifespan, but i know working in laundry isn't going to get me anywhere other than where i am right now.
This theoretical perspective also supposes that while individuals may assume this process is complete in early adulthood, choosing an occupation is a lifelong process Mau, 2007). Similarly, Sears (1982) defined career development- the total constellation Of Psychological, sociological, educational, environmental, economic, and chance factors that combine to shape the career of an individual over the life span(as cited in Patton &McMahon, 2006,P.6). Choosing a positive career choice and then following it leads to an individual to personal growth, satisfaction, and consolidation (Masdonati, Massoudi & Rossier,
This was especially beneficial as not only could they reassure me that it would be fine, they were also able to give me advice on the things to talk about. In addition to this I also ran into my previous employer not long before the interview. Although he worked in the retail sector, not the financial sector he was able to tell me what he looks for at interviews when hiring, and what he thought I should focus on with relation to my work history. The final, and most effective thing I did before the interview was to prepare model answers. Preparing model answers before the interview was extremely helpful, but did prove quite difficult.
