Acquiring a job, whether it be in a doctor’s office or a fast-food restaurant, can transform a person. Jobs tend to educate employees, either indirectly or directly, both about themselves and life in general. In Climbing the Golden Arches, nineteen year-old Marissa Nuñez discusses how her employment at McDonald’s transformed her into a mature and skilled employee. Within her personal narrative, Nuñez mentioned how she faced both pleasant and unpleasant circumstances while working at McDonald’s, all which prepared her for her future career. At McDonald’s, Nuñez learned how to fulfill her role of being an employee by becoming an expert at all the placed stations, dealing with the various types of customers she encountered on a daily basis, and
The temptation to eat junk at work is still there. The office is a bit chaotic at the moment so I am having to get through my meals quickly. The upside of eating home-cooked meals is that I am saving money in the long run. I have been trying out new recipes that I found at the American Diabetes Foundation website and they are awesome. I could live off of Shepard 's Pie and the Tailgate Nachos.
In the next ten years I hope that I’m very well educated and wealthy and rich. I hope that I graduated with honors from Uh manoa if I see the day. I see myself enjoying the major that I chose as a profession to work in. One day I would like to open my own restaurant and work until it takes off. Then the next ten years I hope to accomplish a lot of more things.
I now have one summer class left before earning my Associates degree from Ivy Tech in Business, while continuing to earn my Bachelor’s degree at Saint Joseph’s College. For the first time ever, I am considering continuing my education further to earn a Master’s degree. I now have ideas for my own companies I never imagined. However, I know as time goes on my ideas for the future may change, as they have since high school. As a result, I would consider my main accomplishment to date to be persistent growth while tenaciously finishing my schooling despite many challenges I have faced, and have yet to face, I refuse to quit.
Ever since i was able to talk and walk I have been a die hard IU fan and now that I am a senior i am one step away from possibly attending my dream school. As an undergraduate i plan on pursuing a business career that would allow myself to reach and receive a Bachelors degree with a major in Business Operations while obtaining a Marketing Minor which will authorize me to move on and reach my goal of owning my own business in more specific terms owning a Chick-Fil-A. Ive been working at Chick Fil A since I was fifteen and have recently been promoted to the management team which I am very humbled by since I am only sixteen. I am very blessed to be a part of this corporation which has taken me on trips to leadership summits and have shown me better ways to lead my team and communicate.
Every dime I earn working at Reynolds Community College and every grant and scholarship I receive will go towards my passion of studying human behavior and applying everything I learn to bringing every community I can reach, a giant leap forward. After receiving my associates degree in Social a Science I decided to take a year off to work towards finding what it is that I really want to pursue. I have searched for that 'something ' that will keep me intrigued and awake all hours of the night without realizing it. I have eliminated the idea of simply working to make ends meet or finding a good job to support my family and "living" outside the 40+ hours of a weekday job. I am pursuing much more and I am confident that I have found a path leading me to wake up before my alarm clock sounds instead of praying for more time.
The time spent at Western Governors University (WGU) has been a great opportunity to learn about myself, my goals, and understand the factors that influence my career choice and my success. When I began at WGU four years ago, I did not have any experience in human resource management beyond recruiting, hiring and training for the restaurant industry. In the beginning, I was uncomfortable with the limited knowledge. Yet, as time progressed, my confidence, knowledge and skills increased with each course.
After a year of experience with over fifty upper year residents I feel that the next stage would be to take on all of the previously mentioned independent responsibilities that come with the AA position. By moving on to this position I would essentially be taking all of the skills I learned in my first year as an RA and applying these skills in a more independent environment while simultaneously becoming a part of larger group events and organization on campus for upper year residents. The position would also provide me with a drastically different Reslife experience than what is provided in the traditional res halls. This unique experience would help me become better versed as a staff member by giving me experiences with both apartment style living and dorm life on a college campus and becoming familiar with both of types of
SP18 MGMT3341.02/03 - Human Resource Planning, Staffing, & Selection Team #6 - Heather Fralish, Craig Gil, Emerald Kormah, Jennifer Restivo, Bianca Tolentino Team Exercise: Chapter 2, Case Study (page 44-45) Integrating McDonald’s Business, Human Resource, and Staffing Strategies This week, we were asked to take a closer look into the business of McDonald’s and to discuss the importance of people to the organization. As we all know, all businesses thrive on one main person: their consumers. Without them, no business could be successful! But in order for the consumers to be happy, a business thus begins with another person: their workers.
I put on my uniform, which was sort of big on me, and left to go there. I was assigned to work in the Food and Nutrition Department. At first I thought I would have to bake and cook meals, but it turned out that I would be assisting the chefs and setting up the cafeteria tables. Although I barely knew anyone there, there were people who showed me around. I did not talk much to the head chef as much as I talked to the other chefs.
In high school I participated in a culinary competition called C-CAP (Careers through Culinary Arts Program), Josh was one of the judges my sophomore, junior, and senior year. He donated his time, expertise and also a scholarship for aspiring culinarians. I have had the opportunity to work with Josh at the Taste of America event put on by the James Beard Foundation. Not only did he teach me a ton in that short night, he also offered me a position in his kitchen staff at Posh. Josh Hebert is inspiring to me because he worked in several restaurants and came to the realization that he loved the industry but couldn’t stand the daily grind.
I want to help someone change their life around in hopes that they do better in their community. Other than going to school full time I work part time at a grocery store and I 'm the mother to a awesome four year old boy. I have lived in Virginia Beach my whole life and even though we seem to have bi-polar weather I love it here. I hope that when I 'm older though I can move to the country side of Virginia where its more quiet. I recently took a cooking class and it was so much fun, I love learning how to cook new recipes.
