  • My name is * * * and i am a senior that will be graduating in December. I am asking for a over ride to get in either CRN * * *, or * * *.  I would prefer * * *   but either will work. I am asking this because i have signed up for another class that is four days a week ,andi didnt realize that until today and that conflicts with my work schedule either one of the other two will go better with my schedule. if you could give me an override for one of these classes it would be greatley appreciated.        Thanks     * * *

  • “UK conference and business learning awards organizer, The World of Learning 2008, recently surveyed 267 learning and development experts about the program. Experts were asked, ‘Which skills do you believe The Apprentice highlighted for young managers to improve?’

  • Communication skills top the results, suggesting these are the main weakness for a young ‘Apprentice’. Survey respondents say ‘communication’ (71%) is in need of the greatest improvement, closely followed by better ‘leadership’ (62%) and ‘team working’ (59%).”

  • “The deficiency is so pronounced, he said, that many companies offer basic writing courses to bring new hires up to speed.Such expenditures chip away at one of the perceived advantages younger people have in the work force: They traditionally have been seen as cheaper hires because their pay and health care requirements are lower. However, hiring companies also tend to view them as less reliable and loyal than their older counterparts, and even in today’s cutthroat business world, loyalty has worth.”
