How to Graduate Ahead of the Game

Graduating college is going to be one of the most exciting times of your life because unlike high school, you made a choice to go to college, and it was your dedication and hard work that earned your degree. Too often, however, panic sets in immediately after graduation because students realize that they don’t have a plan. Many of these students hoped that the future would simply fall into place for them, but, unfortunately, without planning and hard work, this is rarely the case. Don’t fall victim to this sad situation.
Instead, follow these tips while you’re still in school to ensure that graduation is followed by you moving up in the world, not moving back into your parents’ basement.

Use career planning resources.

If your college is like most schools, then it probably offers some great career planning assistance. Often staffed at least in part by recent graduates, your school’s career planning resources can provide some extremely valuable services that are utilized by far too few students. These services are usually free and can help you with everything from practicing your interviewing skills and dressing professionally, to creating the perfect resume (which is arguably your best weapon for securing a job after graduation). Career services departments also often have access to job posting databases that are otherwise available only to users who maintain a paid subscription. It’s never too early to see what you can do to start planning for your future, so visit your career services center today to ask how they can help you prepare for the working world.

Get an internship.

Many college students apply for internships only because they are a necessary component of their department’s graduation requirements, but internships are an often overlooked resource. Many companies offer full time positions to their interns, provided the intern has performed adequately, so even if your major doesn’t require you to get an internship, consider doing so anyway. Even if you have already completed your internship and were not offered a job, you should still inquire after vacant positions, regardless of how long ago your internship ended. Employers often give priority to former interns because the individual is already familiarized with the workings of the company.
Finally, although some internships are, in fact, unpaid, you should not turn them down for this reason alone. Consider these unpaid internships an investment in your future. Not only will it reward you in the form of necessary job experience, but the boost it provides to your resume could also result in a huge increase in the salary you receive after graduation.

Attend job fairs.

If you think this tip seems like common sense, you’re right, but the sad fact is, very few students take the time to attend job fairs. They may intend to, but then more immediate concerns like homework or socialization take precedence, and job fairs are left forgotten. This is incredibly unfortunate, because attending job fairs is an extremely effective way to help secure a position for after graduation. It’s a very basic arrangement: Employers in need of new hires set up a stand at a job fair, and interested parties (usually college students) attend the fair to make connections with these employers and discuss the requirements of the job.
These employers would not be present at the fair if they weren’t in need of new employees, but many of these vacant positions are advertised exclusively at job fairs, meaning these opportunities are limited only to the fair’s attendees. Furthermore, these job fairs are rarely cheap, but, as a college student, the cost of your attendance is covered by your school. If you wait until after graduation to attend job fairs, you probably won’t have the luxury of attending for free.
Using career planning services, applying for internships, and attending job fairs are all great ways to ensure that your future is well planned for. It may not seem necessary to begin planning today, but the earlier you start, the less post-graduation anxiety you’ll experience. By taking advantage of these resources, you’ll be well ahead of the game by the time you graduate.

What Can I Do With A Degree In Health Care Management?

What is health care management, and what does a degree in this subject offer you? The health care field is expanding very rapidly, and the demand for workers in this industry is high. The aging US population and technological advances have made health care one of the biggest opportunities, one that is not affected by recessions or other economic factors. With a degree in health care management, you can work at a variety of occupations.
Hospitals, health care providers, labs, insurance companies, and others in health care fields require administrators, managers, and other professionals. Someone needs to administer the insurance plans and determine which care is approved. As a health care manager, you can help manage patient care to ensure that the proper treatment is provided in a compassionate manner.
Hospitals require administrators to ensure that tests and medical care are scheduled and given in an appropriate manner and timely fashion. Health care facilities require trained and skilled professionals for effective management and efficient planning, to keep costs down while providing excellent quality and customer service to patients and clients.
A degree in health care management can open many doors and give you a large number of opportunities. This degree can allow you to take a position as a manager in the office of a health care provider or insurance company, or in a hospital or home health setting. Executive positions and supervisory jobs at companies that have any relation with the health care industry usually require some type of college degree, and with one in health care management you are already in a position to succeed.
The health care field is growing larger every day, and it is impossible to keep up with the demand. This has led to a large increase in the classes and courses offered to prepare students for this industry. Between the public and private health care sectors the number of unfilled jobs in the management of health care is amazing. These are positions that can pay very well, and a lack of qualified individuals has caused some shortages in these fields.
With a degree in health care management, you will be qualified to work in almost any medical management or supervisory position. You will have an understanding of the billing and medical coding practices, as well as providing timely care in a compassionate manner. You may choose to work coordinating medical benefits or care and treatment, or you may choose to supervise auditors and others involved on the business end of the medical field. You will be prepared to start a career on the business end of providing health care and doing this as effectively as possible.
Patients want excellent care, insurance companies want low costs, and medical providers want to receive payment. In the meantime, there are many different forms to fill out and paperwork requirements to meet. With a career in health care management, you can make all of this possible, and can choose from a large range of occupation choices at the same time.
No matter what happens to the American and global economy health care will always be needed, and so will health care management professionals. This college degree can give you career security.

Things You Want To Do On Campus But Probably Shouldn’t

Drum roll … Here’s another one of our wacky and zany top ten lists. How about “10 Crazy Things You Could Do on a College Campus But Probably Shouldn’t Try” or, to put it on a more academic note, how about “10 Alternative Purposes for a College Campus.”
You’ve always associated with college with long lectures, boring teachers, and textbooks filled with minuscule print. The towering brick building is filled with classrooms where you’ve spent hours on end trying to focus on the current class and not all the projects you have to work on for your other classes. Of course, if you’re like the average students, your mind starts wandering freely about halfway through class. You think about playing paintball in the hallways of a classroom building at night, sliding down the curving banisters in the library, and diving into the fountain pool. Keep your thinking gears turning! Because we’ve got the top ten wacky and crazy ideas coming. Here are some crazy ways to put that college campus to work for you:

1. Bungee Jumping
Hook bungee cords to all of the tallest buildings on campus and get ready to jump off and hang on. If you’re in an extremely daring mood, try swinging from one cord to another and making your way around campus. (Disclaimer: My lawyer wanted me to add three pages of fine print to the end of this blog post. Basically, if you’re crazy enough to try any of these ideas – or any other ideas I blog about – you’re crazy enough to know you’re the only one responsible. So no pointing the thumb at me!)
2. Drag Racing
Cone off the main roads and get together all the people with the fastest sports cars. Line up and see how fast everyone can go. You know you’ve always wanted to burn out on the pavement without the campus police catching up to you.
3. Massive Paintball War
Turn several buildings on campus into areas to hide and run around with paintball guns. Duck behind the president’s desk, participate in a shootout in a science lab as you watch test tubes shatter everywhere, or run around the main auditorium gunning down the other team.
4. Food Fight
Ask the dining hall staff to save food they would normally throw away. Bag up tomatoes, jello, soup, and any other food that makes for messy projectiles. Line up two teams inside the dining hall and set up tables and chairs as barricades. Then, fire away!! Just don’t wear your favorite shirt like I did.
5. Fountain Diving
Make a big splash all over campus! Pull on your swim trunks and goggles and get ready to dive into every single fountain on campus! Maybe even make a relay race out of the event. You might want to pick a warm day for this activity. Believe me, it’s no fun at 17 degrees!
6. Building Climbing
Get together a bunch of climbing gear—rappelling hooks, ropes, harnesses, and of course Clif bars to replenish your carb needs. Scale your way up the tallest buildings around campus. And, if you’re up for the risk and the fun, try climbing up a few brick walls without any tools. You may have to sign a liability form before attempting said crazy act, however.
7. Zoo
Rent a few wild animals from the local zoo for a day. Let them roam free around campus for a true safari experience. This could even make a very valuable social experiment for a psychology class. Who wouldn’t enjoy driving in for class and seeing a lion in the road roaring and shaking its mane? Or a monkey jumping on top of the car and pounding on the window?
8. Movie Theater
Plan to project the latest movies on big screens in all of your college’s largest auditoriums. Let people take a break from classes for a day to watch their favorite movies. Lord of the Rings marathon, anyone?
9. Reality Show
Instead of just watching a show, your college campus could actually be a show. Surely a few teachers are quirky enough to provide entertainment on a reality show. Cameras could follow you around from class to class and back to your dorm at night. Now if only you could get some kind of grade bonus for submitting to a project like this.
10. Plain Old, Boring School
Sigh…that’s why you’re in college. To get an education, to graduate, and to hopefully find a job. So focus back on that lecture, and stop daydreaming, at least until class finishes.
Dudes, thanks again for taking part in yet another College Top Ten List! And, as always, keep those comments coming. If you’ve got a brainier or crazier idea than the ones we’re scraping our brain cells to come up with, please jot it down and leave it for us in electronic bloggin’ comment form. We love the feedback and we live for it!

Best credit cards and Benefits of getting an airline credit card

For every dollar you spend on your credit card, you can get rewards for airlines, hotels or cars. But let’s just focus on the airline rewards.  These are the credit cards that benefit you in getting airline tickets.  Airline credit cards are beneficial for those who fly with a particular airline frequently. Also, if the airline has it’s hub close to your home, then you won’t have any issues with redeeming your miles as all the common destinations are easy to reserve.

So as you spend, you accrue reward points which can be converted to miles which can be used to get free airline tickets, first class upgrades, other perks related to air travel. Some perks include free companion ticket with membership, lost luggage insurance, travel accident insurance. These perks are often covered by airline credit cards only and not normal credit cards. Occasionally, bonus miles can be earned through various other transactions and promotional programs from time to time by the airlines or the credit cards associated with the airline.
The points that you earn while spending money with your card is transferred to your Frequent Flyer account. The benefits from these points and the number of points that you earn vary from card to card. Other valuable benefits that are sometimes offered with these types of cards, inlcude purchase protection, extended warranties, auto rental insurance and fraud protection.

Now once you decide to apply for an airline credit card, here are a few things you should consider and check:

• Know your credit history and continue to pay your bills on time. If you fail to make payments on time then airline credit cards may charge up to 5-6% higher interest rate then other credit cards.

• Make sure the airline you are choosing covers most of your destinations.  If the airline does not go to your usual destinations then you may not be able to redeem your miles.

• The penalty for not paying bills on time can have more than one consequence.

• Two things need to be checked - the interest rate on the airline credit card and the annual fee(s). If you have good credit, airline credit cards are a viable option, otherwise you should seek out a credit card with a lower interest rate.

• You can certainly have two cards - an airline card on which points are earned based on purchases and another credit card.  By doing this, a large amount will not be accumulated on the airline credit card (which has the higher interest rate) for payment.

• Never forget to read the fine print and the credit card’s terms and conditions.

When searching on the internet, you will find many websites which provide a detailed comparison of all the credit cards.  It is advisable that you do a comprehensive search before choosing a card. The selection of the card totally depends on your needs.

But before selecting an airline card make sure that you can fly with the same airline almost everywhere!
