Getting ready for college is more than applying for financial aid and picking a roommate. Once these two monumental tasks are accomplished, help your student prepare for the new experiences and challenges they will face.
Here are seven success tips you can share with your college student:
1. Don’t be afraid to ask. Their new world consists of bosses, professors, mentors, and those who have been where they are now. Encourage your student to ask for feedback, advice or alternatives, instead of staying quiet or being embarrassed that they don’t know the answer. They will discover there are countless people who want to see them succeed. Tell them: Adopt the mantra, “You’ll never know until you ask.”
2. They have tremendous power. Yes, your student! One such power is enthusiasm. They can make a huge impact in others’ lives by bringing their enthusiasm every day. Praise others for a job well done or nominate them for recognition. When they make the choice to be enthusiastic, interested and curious in studies, their work and in other people, positive energy grows. People love to be around upbeat, positive people. Tell them: Choose enthusiasm every day and in time, it becomes a habit.
3. Success starts with honoring themselves. This means taking care of themselves physically, emotionally and socially. It applies not only to staying healthy, gaining financial freedom or living on their own for the first time, but standing up for themselves like they would for a best friend. Tell them: Make choices that honor yourself.
4. Take charge instead of charging. Successful students know that they don’t need to outspend their friends and classmates to impress people. While you may still be supporting your student through tuition and perhaps even pizza money, learning the concept of money rules is a solid step to financial maturity. Money rules work best when they create their own, based on values and goals. Tell them: Creating your own money rules is the start of a personal financial philosophy that will serve them for the rest of their life. Successful studenrs also use essay help, if they need.
5. Goals: Whether it’s to make the Dean’s list, run a 5K or become a millionaire, it starts with a vision and a promise to persevere until it is a reality. It’s also important that they realize that goals should be specific and attainable, not so outrageous that they would leave them feeling defeated. Many students may dismiss their dreams and goals as unimportant because they don’t know how to break it down into specific, measurable steps. Tell them: Setting a goal is nothing more than making-and keeping-a promise to yourself.
6. In such a wired world the old fashioned, hand written, Thank You note will open more doors than they can image. A gift of monogrammed note cards or stationary is just as appropriate today as it was in their grandmother’s era. A handwritten thank you to a professor that wrote a recommendation, or a family friend that connected them with an internship opportunity merits a formal thank you. They will also be prepared to write their grandparents (or you!) to thank them for care packages or money. Tell them: Sometimes an email just doesn’t cut it. Take a minute and write that note. (They will also stand out among their peers by doing so.)
7. They can handle it! All the things that mom and dad handled are suddenly in their lap. They will need to keep track of their original birth certificate and social security card, handle finances, balance work and school schedules and more. A basic organizing system eliminates the frustration, fines and late fees by having papers where they can find them. Help them set up basic categories such as money, health and social life as starters. As they take on more responsibility, they can expand categories. Tell them: They can handle it!
In any industry, there are some people who can be of help to anyone and it is also the same in the traveling industry. The ones who work hard in order for people to have safe trips are called the Illinois travel agents. They are known as the organizers of the things needed by a traveler. Before, obtaining some tickets for traveling was quite difficult especially those planer and train tickets.
However, these days this has totally made a turning point. This is because there have been several websites that offer booking services. People can now easily perform a few clicks while they are in their offices, homes or even with the use of their cell phones so that they can book their flights. With all the advances in technology, the services offered by an agent are still beneficial especially to those individuals who do not have any experience in traveling.
Agencies that are focus on traveling are the ones that employ these agents. These agencies provide traveling service to clients. Meanwhile, some of the agents are also allowed to work without any agency. The handling of other things is also tackled by these experts. They can earn money as they take a percentage of the total cost of each trip that they closed.
With most specialties or allied health fields the differences are in the level of education, training and personal cv, a person receives or is required to have to practice in the field.
What is the difference between an ultrasound technician and a Radiologist? The answer is in the type of training received and the amount of training required for each position. A radiologist is a person who completes medical school like any other physician. Then additional training is required for a residency. Typically the first year is spent in general medicine. Then an individual will spend up to four years in a radiology residency learning how to read and diagnose.
A radiologist does more than simply read and interpret x-rays. He or she may also read other diagnostic images from ultrasounds and doppler studies. The individual will be skilled in interpreting all types of films.
An ultrasound technician, on the other hand, receives much less training and only attends school possibly long enough to earn an Associate or Bachelor degree. When the training is complete the individual will take a certification exam to work as an ultrasound technologist in a medical facility. Most programs will require the individual to complete an internship in the field but this can be as short as a few months or up to one year in some programs.
There is also quite a difference in the pay rate for both positions. As a physician, a radiologist will earn an income that is similar to that of a physician working in a clinical setting. Usually, the radiologist will work in a hospital but may also be employed by a large health center or outpatient facility.
An ultrasound technician will make much less than a physician or a radiologist, around $35,000 to $40,000 to start, even with a four-year degree. There is much less responsibility involved in performing tests that take images, than a position that required interpreting the results.
