In the process of switching jobs to better suit my career field I found that Careerbuilder.com is more accurate and reliable. CareerBuilder offers tons of vacancy options as wells as tools to search for a desired job and job field. Whereas Riley Guide offers limited and a less variety of jobs as well as job search options. “CareerBuilder is an employment-based site that helps job seekers to search for job openings by keyword, location and career category”. Whereas Riley Guide serve as an online source designed to help jobseekers find employment websites.

When using CareerBuilder.com job seekers have the ability to post resumes and apply to job openings after creating their own online profile. Whereas Riley Guide servers as a search engine which allows visitors to browse through multiple lists directly from the website. The list is only a blueprint that provides links to other sites where visitors can search for employment. Also Riley Guide does not give visitors the option to create their own online profile or upload any resumes. Riley Guide is only a guide to other resources that can help jobseekers find employment.

CareerBuilder.com offers career advice information and a resume writing service. The writing service can assist you with writing your resume as well as critiquing the resumes you may post to your online profile. Whereas Riley Guide offers only articles as a guideline when writing or posting your resumes to other employment sites. Careerbuilder.com is more organized and structured better to help job searching easier for job seekers. Whereas Riley Guide is too complicated due to the fact everything is scattered all over the homepage and every link is followed by another link.

CareerBuilder.com also can serve as a social media site. It gives you the opportunity to subscribe to the recently posted sections. That section allows job seekers to see…...

...Jamal is Innocent In the movie, Finding Forrester, Jamal meets a man by the name of William Forrester. By the fault of Jamal, Forrester acquires Jamal’s journal which were full of his writing. Forrester, a renowned author, corrected Jamal’s work by adding his own thoughts. After Jamal’s journals were returned to him, he began working on his writing with Forrester. At the same time, he was offered the opportunity to play basketball at a private school. No one at the school believed Jamal had any academic capabilities; they only believed he was there to play basketball. One of his teachers even went as far as to accuse Jamal of plagiarism. However, Jamal Wallace is innocent of plagiarism because he demonstrates a high level of integrity, the faculty at Mailor Callow was unfair to him, and he naturally possesses a high level of intelligence. One reason that Jamal Wallace is innocent of plagiarism is that he demonstrates a high level of integrity. Jamal was receiving help on his writing from Forrester; however, Forrester requested that Jamal never tell anyone about him or the work that they were doing. When Jamal was accused of plagiarizing, he could have cleared up the charges immediately, but he demonstrated integrity and kept his promise to William. Additionally, the professor asked Jamal to write a paper in his office. Jamal could have told him he wouldn’t do it, but he wanted to show that he could.

Veterans Having Trouble Finding Jobs After the Military

...Project Veterans Having Trouble Finding Jobs After the Military Mark Everhart Kaplan University Professor Sandra Fontana Veterans who have served this country by going to war are quickly realizing that America is not appreciating the sacrifices made for our service members. Veterans are being passed over for employment for many different reasons. Some of these reasons include Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), lack of job skills for performing civilian jobs, and the inability to cope with the transition from military to civilian life. The unemployment rate for veterans is 6.9 percent (Norman, 2012). The government and the employers need to work together to make the transition out of the military a smoother process. The Department of Veteran Affairs cannot process the applications for the G.I. Bill fast enough to accommodate the veterans. Veterans lack the job skills necessary to perform jobs in the civilian sector after the military. All military veterans should have special training, skill and mind set for the transition from military to civilian life, provided by the government and employers to ensure employability after serving their country regardless of how many years of service one has served. Veterans lack the special training and skills that are necessary to compete with the civilian population. Veterans often have jobs that cannot transfer to the civilian world (Hefling, 2011). For instance if they are an infantryman, they cannot get a job as a mechanic. Even......

Finding Forrester

...Finding Forrester Assignment 1. Jamal refused to recite the poem and say he has not read it because; he did not want his friends to make fun of him. 2. Jamal turned to reading and writing after his father abandoned his family because, he knew that learning things to make him smarter will help him become a better person when older, so he would not do something like this which his father did. 3. When Jamal finds his backpack in the street he discovers comment in red ink in his journals. Forrester had read his journals and made editorial notes in them. 4. When Forrester says “constipated thinking” about Jamal’s writings he is criticizing his work, saying it is not clear. 5. Jamal takes up the challenge to write 5,000 words on why he should stay away because; he wanted to prove to Forrester he is worthy to come in. 6. Some assumptions that adults make of Jamal are they think that he is not smart enough to write as well as he does, that a 16 year old black basketball player from the Bronx couldn’t possibly write like he did, they said it was too good. 7. These assumptions were very stereotypical. That since Jamal was a colored boy from a lower class place who was good at sports that he couldn’t possibly be good at something like writing.

Themes and Findings

...Themes and Findings The common theme for this paper is the role of the nurse in community and public health. The terms community and public health nurse have been used interchangeably for many years. The roles however of a community health nurse and a public health nurse have become very different over the years as well. Time has a way of changing everything. The field of nursing has been ever changing since the time of Florence Nightingale. It has always intrigued me how many times nursing returns to its humble beginnings to move nursing into the future. The community health nurse usually focuses on and individual and their family and their health care needs and issues in order to maintain the individual and their families health. An example of this would be home health nursing. Then there is the public health nurse who focuses on an entire population’s health and wellbeing. The public health nurse’s job is to find out what risk factors a community has by using epidemiology to determine ways of decreasing risk factors, preventing major disease outbreaks and also to work with the public’s health governing agency’s to accomplish the heath maintenance of the population. This type of nurse has to have more specialized education than that of a community health nurse, or what you might say is the same education as a community nurse, but just more in depth. This would affect my practice by clearing up the role for each of these nursing areas of expertise so it would make it......

Finding Nemo

...Aaron Liu Finding Nemo: A Loss of Innocence Throughout the movie, Finding Nemo, Marlin has to endure a myriad of hardships and obstacles in order to save his son. Because of this journey, Marlin also goes through many changes in attitude. Marlin’s first real loss of “innocence” occurred in the opening scene. It begins with Marlin and Coral admiring their new home and their abundance of eggs. Marlin is friendly, loving, and appears to be carefree; the exact opposite of his personality throughout the rest of the movie. Unfortunately, a barracuda attacks, knocking Marlin unconscious and killing Coral and all but one of the eggs. Marlin ends up naming the egg, Nemo, a name that his wife liked. Therefore, a main character’s loss of “innocence” is through a devastation of fantasy as it encounters a cruel reality. The opening scene showed the origins of Marlin’s worrisome and fearful personality. Before his loss, Marlin seemed carefree and cheerful, however due to the harshness of reality, he transforms into a stranger. Because of the barracuda attack, Marlin realizes the numerous amounts of potential disasters. However, his last surviving child is what pulls him together and we can see that Marlin especially treasures Nemo because it is also a representation of his wife. Furthermore, the camera zoomed in on the cracking of the last egg. When Marlin notices that the egg is damaged, he vows to protect Nemo and wraps his fins around the egg, foreshadowing his overprotective......

Finding Myself

...Finding Myself People think it’s so easy to change. They think it’s so easy, but it isn’t. Sure, things don’t always stay the same. You get a new couch, boys come and go, you gain a new scar, discover a new song, or you find a new passion. But in the end you’re still just you. Always spinning and turning in awkward beautiful shapes like a ballerina on a floor, spinning and spinning only to come back to the same position. A conflict I’ve always had to face a lot in my life is myself. I’ve always had a problem with accepting myself for who I am, what I’ve done, and what I can become. Self-esteem was my greatest issue. From the time I was in fourth grade I didn’t fit in. I probably didn’t fit in before that either but I noticed myself in the fourth grade. I remember the countless times I tried blending my colors with their colors only to be disappointed that ours didn’t mix well and that the end result was a nasty brown color, much to my dismay. It was like a never ending battle and of course like any other kid I thought, was it me? Of course, now that I’m older I understand that it wasn’t me, not intentionally. It wasn’t until I finally started middle school when I actually had some other people I could call friends. They too were like me, misfits. We had our own table and our own discussions. It felt nice to blend in nicely with others for once but alas, it didn’t stay that way when we reached our high school years. But honestly they were just there to help pass the......

Research Findings

...RESEARCH FINDINGS (SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS/DETAILS OF EMERGING TREND[S] OF THE IDENTIFIED COUNTRY MARKET) References: http://www.portal.euromonitor.com/portal/analysis/tab TOP FIVE CONSUMER TRENDS Consumers remain optimistic about their financial futures In recent years Latvian consumers have come back from several challenges. As noted in a recent article in the Financial Times, “The Baltic state of Latvia endured a harsh recession following the global financial crisis, with 25% pay cuts in the public sector and an exodus of young workers to friendlier economic climates. However, tough austerity measures meant its economy was one of the first in Europe to bounce back”. Consumer confidence wavered slightly in late 2013 due to uncertainty about transition to the Euro. But the changeover in early 2014 worked relatively well, with little immediate price or inflation rises and, as a result, optimism returned. According to a recent study of consumers and households by the Swedbank Institute of Private Finance, 37% of Latvians believe that there were no significant changes to their family budgets in 2014; 30% believe that their financial situations improved; and 30% believed their financial situations got worse. Compared to 2013 results, Latvians were clearly more optimistic. At the same time, the same study identified consumers’ primary concerns over the coming short term. These included rising electricity costs (cited by 72% of respondents), rising food costs (57% of respondents) and...

Finding Truths

...blockades in Cuba were ever lifted. The parallels and the irony were not lost on me. I was stepping out of an American political cave that shrouded the beauty of Cuba and stepping into another, one built on patriotic socialism, one where truths were just as ideological as, yet very different from, mine. History, I recognized, is never objective. The journeys I have taken have been colored by my prior experiences and by what my feelings were in those moments. Everyone holds a piece of the truth. Maybe facts don’t matter. Perhaps my experience is my truth and the more truths I hear from everyone else, the closer I will get to harmonization. Maybe there is no harmony, and I must go through life challenging and being challenged, perhaps finding perspectives from which I can extract—but never call—truth. I must simply find ways to understand others, to seek in them what is common to us all and perhaps someday find unity in our common human bond. This is what life has taught me so far, my sum of truths gleaned from experiencing many cultures. I don’t know if these truths will hold, but I hope that my college experience will be like my trip to Cuba—challenging some truths, strengthening others, and helping me experience new ones....
