Jobless in JulyWritten by Detra Davis
Continued from page 1
Do you have a friend who makes best chocolate truffles in town? A bridal shop might allow you to put your flyer in their shop. Brides are always looking for tasty little gifts for their guest. A job in food is one of most convenient positions a person can perform. Everyone loves good food and there is bound to be something that you can cook or learn to cook in relatively little time. Do you make a great barbecue sauce? Do you grind your own blend of coffee?
Donít stop looking for a permanent position, keep that resume circulating and visit community associations and organizations. Get out there and volunteer, meet people and introduce yourself to everyone. This is time to become a social butterfly. Everyone needs to develop streams of income. Relying on one job for your livelihood today is unrealistic. Look at your joblessness as an opportunity to use your community as your source of income. Start a small business. Think about starting a small business. Find a job but donít let just job be your salvation. Today that is a dangerous way to live.

The value of any education, regardless of where it is acquired, is ultimately based on knowledge imparted and learned. It should be very apparent that value of how good or well endowed financially school or its contacts (network) are perceived, it can be totally duplicated in an online environment with few exceptions.
Perhaps we should actually consider notion that what really ought to validate value of a degree is nature and credibility of those teaching subject not how it is delivered. In range of choices of what a student and professor can do together, online delivery is clearly superior to traditional classroom. In effect, a professorís name and their credentials ought to be on every university studentís transcript. This would demonstrate to whole world student has studied under and passed satisfactorily all work undertaken under this or that academic guru. Who does this? No one.
