For many people the insurance industry may seem boring, I felt like that myself when I first entered into this career field. Over time I have come to realize that this is not true, that in fact my ideal career is in the insurance industry. In the insurance industry there are numerous companies and careers to choose from, there are small companies that no one has heard of and larger companies such Allstate and Nationwide. There are a few things to take into consideration other than just the compensation package being offered when choosing which company to work for. How well do they manage their financial issues such as tax issues, hedge funds, and natural disasters risks?
My ideal career in the insurance industry would be in the Special Investigation Unit (SIU). In order to achieve this goal I need to start in essence at the bottom and work my way up and gain knowledge to help ensure that I do the best I can. There are a few adjuster positions that can assist me in gaining the knowledge that will help me later be a SIU adjuster. Three types of adjuster positions that will help to obtain my goal are:
• Liability – The majority of claims are handled in the liability determination unit (LDU), in Texas the average adjuster handles approximately three to five claims a day. These are claims that the liability is unclear and no injuries are present.
• Soft-tissue Unrepresented – Claims handled by this unit involve soft-tissue injuries usually caused by low impact accidents, minor auto damages usually under $1500.
• Moderate Unrepresented – Claims handled by this unit also involve soft-tissue injuries caused by more severe impact accident with damages between $1500 and $5000.
So of all the different careers why did I choose SIU? I chose this career because to me it is interesting, unlike the other adjuster positions listed above, SIU adjusters do not work solely…...

Ideal Teacher

...Ideal Teacher One of the noblest professions in the world is that of a teacher’s. In ancient civilization, those with wisdom and an infinite amount of knowledge were teachers. Those that wanted to learn would go in search for teachers in order to get education, even though education was limited to a few back then. Over the passage of time, education became available for all regardless of class, background, and place of birth. Because of this democratization, there was an increase in the number of schools, and respectively, the number of teachers. In this present age, there are teachers for all age groups ranging from pre-elementary to university level. Not all teachers can be ideal; however, many are in a league of their own. In most people’s lives, a teacher plays an important role in which he provides people with great knowledge so as to have a successful career in one’s respective life. Not only do teachers inform students about a knowledge-related subject, but also guide them on the correct path which leads to success. A teacher can be considered to be a compass that activates the magnet of information, interest and wisdom in those that seek them. An ideal teacher is capable of turning a good student into a superior one and a poor student into a great one. This is because such a teacher holds important attributes including high expectations from their students and being capable of thinking in a creative-manner. Being versatile and sensitive are also important......

Brand Ideals

...A fairly thorough literature review has been undertaken concerning the topic of brand building for Not-For-Profit organisations. I am attempting to bring together a couple of principles which will explain our approach to the Pro Bono Campaign. PRINCIPLE ONE: BRAND IDEALS Ogilvy are proponents of the idea of Brand Ideals. Millward Brown, also part of WPP, have initiated a measurement tool for Brand Ideals which is said to the “the engine of business growth.” A Brand Ideal is defined as “a higher purpose of a brand or an organisation which goes beyond the product or service that they sell. The ideal is the brand’s inspirational reason for being. It explains why the brand exists and the impact it seeks to make in the world. A brand ideal actively aims to improve the quality of people’s lives.” Here is how the concept of brand ideals is applied in the For Profits sector: * Dove believes that the world would be better if women were allowed to feel good about themselves. * Fanta believes that the world would be a better place if we grew up less and played more. * Scrabble believes that the world would be a better place if we loved words more. * Adidas believes that the world would be better place if people went beyond their normal boundaries. * Coca-Cola believes that the world would be a better place if we saw the glass as half full – not half empty. PRINCIPLE TWO: APPLICATION OF BRANDING IN NON-PROFITS Several Universities, including Stanford......

Ideal Life

...Some people say that your "Ideal Life" is nothing more than a fantasy, somewhat like World Peace. Michelangelo once said; "The greatest danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark." This is probably true for most people, but there are still some people out there who have wonderful goals and dreams, which will probably never get to see any of them, come true. I just hope and pray that I am one of the lucky ones! With out our dreams what do we have to live for? When asked what my "ideal life" situation would be, I had no option but to admit that I did not have a clue. But the more that I think about it, the more that I realize that maybe I was wrong, maybe I know what I want, maybe I am just afraid that I wouldn't be able to achieve my goals, But what's the point of goals if you don't have to strive to reach them? If I could have my "ideal job", it would be a High school Teacher, or something along those lines. I really want to be able to help someone in the way that people have helped me. So therefore, my "ideal career" would have to include the opportunity to help Children and Teens. I feel that with all that I have been through, I would be able to help kids because I would be able to relate to them, and know where they are coming from. There are so many kids out there who do not have anyone to turn to, and if I could just be that person for one child, it would make my life worth living....

The (Less Than Ideal) Thin-Ideal

...Celebrities who fit this definition act as role models for women who want to look like they do, and magazines and television advertisements are constantly telling women how they too can be “beautiful” by selling them weight loss products, exercise programs, and other image enhancers. The constant exposure to the media’s version of beautiful is not something that is often thought of as negative. However, their portrayal of what is beautiful has become distorted over the years, to the point where achieving this “thin-ideal”, which will be defined later, is nearly impossible for women if done through healthy means. Because of this, many women develop body dissatisfaction, which can lead to serious and dangerous consequences, such as the development of eating disorders, in order to be “beautiful”. While there are many factors that can be linked to eating disorders, research has found that the media’s influence on society’s portrayal of extremely thin females as the ideal body is directly correlated to the increase in body dissatisfaction, eating disorders and other harmful conditions found in women. By analyzing this from a feminist perspective, it can be argued that not only does the media’s influence on the idealization of thinness effect females physical and mental health negatively, but it also acts as reinforcement for the patriarchal culture prevalent in today’s society. There is a wide range of eating disorders, ranging from minor to severe. Body dissatisfaction, which......

Ideal Class

...When one is requested to describe their “ideal class,” of course, the essential objects come to mind. These include: supplies, books, desks, computers, etc. If there is more thought put into the question asked, one may realize that there is a lot more than just physical objects that fill up the space in the classroom. The minds of students and teachers are keys to the environment. Any student may say that they have not enjoyed one given class due to their opinion of the teacher. It is very important for the teacher to understand and respect the students, if they are expecting the students to understand and respect them. The teacher also needs to respect their position of being given the role of teaching their future inhabitants of this country. It is also imperative for the teacher to be well-educated as well as well-organized. Not many students enjoy being taught by someone who is learning as they are teaching along with having their work being lost. Just like students request certain qualities for a teacher to obtain, teachers do the same. It takes attention, respect, and hard work to make up a good student. Without attention, the student would not have such an easy time succeeding. If respect is given by the student, it should be earned back from his fellow peers as well as his teacher. Hard work should come with every student who’s trying to succeed. Although these qualities should be found in every student, they are actually not that easy to come by. Of......

My Ideal Career

...My Ideal Career My ideal career lies in the law field. I have not decided on one particular law career yet because I do not yet know enough about the different types of law, but the ones that I think do sound interesting are mediation, family law, and paralegal. A paralegal can work in any area of the law. They can work in family law, criminal law, etc, and also in the mediation field. What made you interested in the law in the first place? I think mediation sounds interesting because a mediator helps people settle their disputes outside the court room in a peaceful way. Mediators need to have excellent reasoning, problem-solving, and peace-making abilities (The Princeton Review, 2012). This appeals to me because I am more of a peaceful person and do not really like conflict or arguing, though I can stand my ground if I need to. According to the Princeton Review, a good mediator is honest, neutral, encouraging, listens well, and has excellent communication skills (The Princeton Review, 2012). I have all of these skills, especially the honest part, down well. In fact, my dad is always telling me I am too honest and I could never get away with doing anything wrong when I was little because I would always give myself away. hahaha Family law is interesting because I like the idea of helping families through the hard parts of life. Family court lawyers handle divorce, guardianship, prenuptial agreements, adoptions, parental rights, custody cases, and the financial and......

...can take that will increase your chances of success at interviews. First, remember that job interviews should be a process of two-way communication. Not only are they a tool for employers to use to evaluate you, but they are also an opportunity for you to assess the job, the organization, and to see if there is a "fit." The keys to a successful interview are preparation and practice. The following suggestions will help you prepare for an interview: Self-evaluation It is important for you to think about yourself and your past experiences in order to be ready to articulate what you have to offer an employer.

Thin Ideal

...ENC1102 Research Paper 3/15/2014 The Thin-Ideal Women around the world struggle with self-worth as well as depression. Many of these lead to more severe situations, such as eating disorders or even suicide. The idea which has created these issues has developed over time through media and the fashion world. The idea that women are to look a certain way and wear a specific size has caused much turmoil for those living in the Western world. It has been proven through research and studies that show the impact media and advertising has on a woman’s self-esteem as well as her self-image. It has become a cultural idea for women to have thin, curve-free bodies, which cause women who do not fit the image to feel body dissatisfaction along with an importance of the woman’s weight leading her toward depression. Though men can be effected by the stereotypes of body images, it is higher amongst women (Rizon and Fallon, 1988). How Media Portrays the Thin-Ideal The media portrays the thin-ideal through many different aspects. It almost always uses a communicator (the person who is used to relay the message of how thin is the best body image), a message (this is different depending on the type of media used), the channel (which is also different depending on what message the communicator is trying to portray), and finally the audience (who the communicator desires to reach through his or her message using a specific channel). An example of this type of media would be a Weight......

What Is the Ideal Career

...What is Your Ideal Career? I believe my ideal career would be in the legal field. There many professions in this field. Growing up in the 60’s and 70’s it was a challenge for me and my family. The legal system was unjust back then and I saw the police as a scary, powerful authority and they could do whatever they wanted to whomever they want. This opinion didn’t change until one summer I met a police officer that changed my opinion about the police force. By his action he showed me that all police were not bad. It was then when I realized I could make a difference in my life. I became fascinated with how the process of the legal system worked and as I got older I looked into the different positions that were offered in the legal field. These positions range from Judges, Lawyers, Court Reporters, Paralegals, Police Officers and Legal Assistants. When I began my journey, I had graduated high school and applied for the academy, but that did work out as it was a height requirement at that time, but that did not discourage me. I continued to look for different avenues, within the legal field because I wanted a career that had an energized work environment. Someplace where I never knew from day to day what it will bring. While doing my different research, I chose to work as a Paralegal. I started as an intern for a small law firm in Nevada specializing in corporate law. Working there made me realize that corporate law is fascinating, but it was not what......

Victorian Ideals

...Conclusion During the Victorian era, men and women searched for an ideal relationship based on the expectations of a demanding society. After reading the researched expectations of men and women of the Victorian era and relating them to Wilde’s two works, this research study can acknowledge the effect the expectations have on these characters; especially the men. Analyzing the characters in Oscar Wilde’s works, The Importance of Being Earnest and A Woman of No Importance, show how the expectations of society effects the characters’ behaviour and their reaction to society’s ideals. Oscar Wilde examines the impact of Victorian society’s unrealistic expectations on the individual in The Importance of Being Earnest and A Woman of No Importance, showing how rejection, whether from a potential partner or society as a whole, can lead to deceit and engaging in a double life in order to satisfy conventions. As it stands, these comedies are the fullest embodiment of Wilde’s lifelong assault upon commonplace life and commonplace values. It was inevitable that the conventional world should strike back at Wilde, at his character and his ideas, if not specifically at his play, but the speed and cruelty of the world’s retribution surpassed expectation. Four days after the opening of his last and finest comedy, the succession of events began that brought about his disgrace, imprisonment and exile. Wilde felt strongly that men and women should be treated equally when it came to sexual......

My Ideal Career

...My Ideal Career: Becoming a Lawyer John Shand LS100 Kaplan University Professor Anderson January 6, 2014 My Ideal Career: Becoming a Lawyer My career goal has recently changed to becoming a lawyer. I’m mainly aiming for criminal lawyer and eventually have my own law firm. What makes becoming a lawyer so attractive to me is simply the fact that I can make a difference in someone’s life or simply make someone feel safer by knowing their assailant is behind bars. There are two important factors that got me interested in law the first was when I joined the Marine Corps, was fascinated by military law and I wanted to joined in that field. I didn’t get that job but I was still able to learn part of the legal system. The second factor that pushed and inspired me more to be a lawyer was after a family member was taken advantage of when I was sixteen, I realized that I wanted to make sure that no one has any chance to put anyone through what they went through or at least do my best to prevent it. I’d like to start at a small firm on an internship once I have my bachelor’s degree so I can gain experience and more knowledge as well as get comfortable with the work environment. While working at the small firm I’ll continue my schooling to get my master’s degree. While going to school to obtain my master’s degree, I will be gaining more knowledge and experience from my job. I hope to move up in the firm and slowly branch to a bigger firm once I have enough experience. In......

Ideal School

...each child has the means to attend school. I would also address the issue of teachers. I feel as if this is one of the most difficult aspects of school to monitor, due to the resources available. Many teachers today are not well equipped and lack the desire and passion to efficiently teach. If I could create my ideal school, I would accept only teachers with sufficient knowledge and a joy for teaching. This would create classrooms with a positive experience and better instruction, rather than ones filled with frustration. The arts would be a prominent feature of my ideal school as well. Often these days, arts programs are being drastically cut, which in turn is sapping the creativity from our students. Because I realize the importance of the arts in schools, I would require that each student enroll in at least one fine arts course. The most important aspect of my ideal school would be Special Education. I would make sure that all types of special education were available. Recently I have learned about the many different kinds of disabilities that children are facing, as well as the vast array of options that are available to them. Including these in my ideal school would make education individualized for all students, as well as attainable for those students who may sometimes feel like achieving good grades is some what out of reach....

The Educated Ideal

...The Educated Ideal The U.S. Census Bureau reports that over 1.5 million bachelor’s degrees were earned in America in the year 2007, alone. Combining all degrees of higher education, over 3 million were earned. For these millions of degrees, how many students are considered to be educated? Certainly the majority of these students are educated by the present standards of their respective fields of study. However, one field of study is but a single facet of the manifold realm of Education as a whole. How then do we determine an individual to be educated? Education and schooling are not inter-dependent. Focusing on education independently of schooling requires an abstract approach. This is the intended approach when evaluating the educated person. The Educated Person is fully aware- Aware of himself, aware of nature, aware of virtue. First, we must ask, “What is education?” Leona Okakok refers to the definition of her native Inupiat Eskimo language, “to cause to become a person.” (p. 80). Education is a process of becoming self-aware. Therefore, the educated person is primarily one who is fully aware of, and one with, himself. As humans, we become aware of the natural world around us far before we begin to truly develop any sense of our unique identity. Awareness is accomplished in three phases. The initial phase is the reception of information- the facts. Little is accomplished with information, alone. It is random, chaotic, and entirely formless until we reach......

An Ideal Classroom in an Ideal School

...schools, and to education systems more widely. In some respects, international schools are a well-kept secret. Unheard of until relatively recently by many educators, policy-makers and planners around the world, the rapid growth in their numbers in recent years is leading to an increased need for even greater awareness by all who have an interest in education beyond purely national boundaries. The origins of international schools lie in the perceived need in some contexts for a form of schooling not available through national systems. Many such schools had their origins in the expatriate communities of, for instance, employees of multinational organizations whose wish to be accompanied by their children in their globally-mobile careers, and the perceived lack of suitability of local schools (often because of language or university preparation incompatibilities), led to the establishment of schools designed for the relatively transient student not catered for locally. At the same time as the number of schools has increased to cater for such pragmatic needs, concerns about the need to foster ‘internationalmindedness’ in young people, including a desire for world peace and the breaking down of barriers arising from prejudice and ignorance, 15 Introduction has led to an ‘ideological’ impetus behind the development of some forms of international school. Growing concerns in the latter part of the twentieth century about the need for global......
