Kaplan University Career Services will be beneficial to me when it is time to create a resume and practice job interviews. I am optimistic for my future and my education at Kaplan University is the foundation for my success. A career as a patient representative is very diverse. When I first decided this is the career path for me, I imagined
Most of the course that I didn’t great in were course that were not in my major but that I took to get credits. I opted not to take suepr easy classes because I like learning new things and to challenge myself. Those tough classes with not great grades are what dragged my cummalitive GPA down. I expect to keep increasing my knowledge and to keep improve my social work skills. I also expect to get more practice in the field by doing internships.
As a child where the hospital was a second home to me, I promised myself that I would push hard to become a doctor no matter the circumstances. It seemed like such a simple mission in my naïve mind. I was not aware of how perplexed this process would be. This is why I strive to attend a university where I will continue to be challenged academically and become more independent in my medical studies. Along with being motivated to become the best version of myself.
I’m not a huge fan of dealing out orders to others so being able to work on my own should be a good thing. The Pressure/stress involved in long term seems to be a little bit more than I’d want, but it’s hard to find a job in our career that doesn’t involve some amount of stress. Overall, at this point in my education I am leaning towards something like long term care, however this survey did not fully convince me to make it my
Success is an intimidating word to many individuals, but it is up to that person to discover what it means to them. People in this world tend to give up because once the road gets rough, they can 't see a light at the end of the tunnel. But they are wrong, once an individual is face to face with adversity, they should set a goal and do their best to achieve it at any cost. That is what success means to me, 'example ' trying your best, meeting your goals, and having no regrets are all a person needs to be successful. When I grow up my dream is to live in Hawaii or Portugal, I 'd love to own a house in a private area where I can go outside and enjoy the nature.
Unfortunately, being immigrants from Mexico has its limitations and prevented them from doing as they pleased. This motivated me to do well in high school in order to attend a university and ultimately help my parents out. Simply pursuing a higher education was not just the next step after high school, but more of an opportunity to achieve a better lifestyle for my family and I. College grants me the opportunity to achieve something my parents simply could not do; graduate with a degree or two and to get a decent paying job without having to break my back. I want to be able to give back to my family for all of the things they have sacrificed and done for
I learned that Occupational Therapy is not a career path I wanted to pursue because the responsibilities and are involved with Occupational Therapy does not seem like something that I would enjoy doing everyday. The variety of customers that came in was interesting and sometimes was very enjoyable, but for the most part I thought the job was very quiet and tamed for me. I found out I might enjoy a career that is mostly predictive, but something new happens every once in a while to keep things interesting. This contributed to the advancement of my career goals by helping me realize the type of work environment I feel would fit me the best and the job shadow also helped me figure out that even though Occupational Therapy can be rewarding and you are helping a wide variety of people, this career path does not suit me. There are other jobs out there that give me the opportunity to help people in other ways, as well as suiting my needs environmentally as well.
By being realistic, anything could be possible, but only with the amount of effort put forth. The American Dream is an opportunity in which a determined person can have exceptional success through dedication and hard work, achieving equality, freedom, and personal goals. As immigrants, my grandparents followed this beacon of hope, and had this one thing in mind: a better life. Coming from
I feel that my experiences will both help and hinder me, in a sense I have a deep understanding of what many people whom will need a social worker are going through, but because of this I will also have a harder time ensuring I do not over relate than some of my fellow classmates will. I have not made a decision on what branch of Social Work I actually want to go into, as of right now I am open to anything. Although I have already decided that as soon as I graduate with a Bachelor’s degree I will apply for graduate school to obtain my Master’s
If we do not experience different things, then we become stagnant and will not grow in our everyday lives. It becomes very important to recognize when there is a need for change. When our lives plateau or we recognize that there is a need to improve in some way, then we need to take the necessary steps to make us happy and satisfied. While it is important to learn how to handle different situations, there are many times where we don’t necessarily desire change. There are times when we have no control over what is happening in our lives.
The only way I think my experience could have been improved was if we were able to go out in the field more towards the end of the semester. In the beginning case managers took interns with them in the field quite often, but towards the end they stopped asking us to go. Being a hands-on learner, it is hard for me to learn by just doing the same repetitive stuff in the office so I would have much rather been out in the field more than in the office. I would recommend DFCS as an excellent place to intern. Interns at DFCS gain valuable hands on experience both in the office and the community that translates into a well-rounded learning experience.
My strength as a leader and even having a better position at work is going unused at the time only because I don 't have a degree yet. I feel that I am ready and can handle a higher role at work but, due to the lack of a degree I wouldn 't meet the qualifications at this time. I agree with you I am in the
I generally have a passive aggressive attitude when it comes to completing work. Where I notice that I am not only doing my own assignment but I am also completing other individual assignments. Where I am overloaded with work and frustrated, which effects my job performance. One solution I started was actively communicating my feelings in an assertive way, and standing behind when I say “no” I mean it. I must admit this took a lot of work, however through time and practice it has become easier for me to communicate my emotions to my coworker and supervisor.
Since many operations in medicine require a large sum of money, some are unable to pay and therefore don’t receive the needed surgery. Another factor that could affect whether or not a person gets a surgery is communication. Many argue that with more technological growth in the medical field, one-on-one interaction is becoming less important. According to Kendall Antekeier, “ Many patients choose their health professionals because of the way they interact with them.” So for some, they prefer human interaction over technology. For cleaner energy, people face a similar ordeal of wanting to acquire new options, yet unfortunately lack the necessary funds.
