Considering a career in behavioral science? Our online education guide provides information on behavioral science careers, majors, and degree programs.
Dustin's insight:

My thoughts: For a long time I was wondering what I was going to do after this last year of high school. I didn't know if I would follow a career in Social Sciences or Behavioral Sciences; or maybe if I was going to go down more of a Marketing side of life. But perhaps I've found a potential way to incorporate the combination of all of them. I've found I want to study the social and behavioral aspects of people what brains react to and in knowing so being able to help a company promote/market their product. This would be my ideal occupation in life.

10 Differences Between Advertising and Public Relations

What's the difference between advertising and public relations? It's one of the most-asked questions people have about these two very different industries.

My thoughts: This site helped tremendously in finding the key differences between advertising and public relations. It's also helped me decide I would rather follow a career in advertising if I was in a career of Marketing. I like the style of writing allowed to persuade someone to get up and purchase something as to a more no nonsense approach. I also like the freedom of creativity in advertising that can't be found in Public Relations, a much more news orriented type of work.

My thoughts:This new information I've found gives me a little bit of hope in pursuing a possible future dream career that I can both enjoy and will afford me my way of life sense I plan on going to a Community College for my post high school education. Reading this has made me slightly regret the work ethic I put into my highschool career though, I feel like if I had put more time and concern into my education I could have left into the real world with better marks and proof of the work I believe to be capable of doing. Prehaps this is a possible needed learning lesson in order for me to improve as is needed.

Social & Behavioral Science Jobs | Finding My Career and Education | Scoop.it

For graduates of social or behavioral sciences, there are a bevy of jobs available in the post-college world, both in the public and private sector. These jobs can range from counseling to marketing to even government work.

One available choice is Counseling because alongside some psychology studies you can get a more personal hand on approach in your career. Counseling could be open to Drug Counseling as well as the Public sector for a number of different support groups.

Daily Report: College of the Future May Be on the Internet

Daily Report: College of the Future May Be on the Internet | Finding My Career and Education | Scoop.it

Tamar Lewin reports on massive open online courses, MOOCs, in Tuesday's New York Times. These are college-level courses free to anyone with an Internet connection, offered by elite universities that have joined forces with private companies.

 

My thoughts: When I first spotted this article I was captivated with the idea of free college at home. Instantly the song from Education Connection went off in my head. I honestly think that online college will be the future, seeing as how it would be much easier and cheaper than going to actual college. It would cut out the issue of driving over to college and having to pay a tuition, and as the article proves the program would work for a wide variety of people. You wouldn't have to search for colleges that would be focused in for you alone. You could do your colleges when you had the time to do your school work. It would be the next education advancement that could easily be wide spread.

Is Social Marketing a Waste of Time… Hardly! | Straight Talk | Ted Rubin

Is Social Marketing a Waste of Time… Hardly! | Straight Talk | Ted Rubin | Finding My Career and Education | Scoop.it
There is a lot of conversation going on now as we approach the end of another year with many focused on Social and whether or not there is truly gold in
Dustin's insight:

My thoughts: After reading the article I believe it makes sense that marketing on a social media site could make tremendous impact if you used your resource correctly. “From the standpoint of a consumer – I will just say that I have found more products/services and purchased more “new” products and services from seeing others trying and liking them on Twitter, FB and Pinterest - than I EVER did from TV, print ads or coupons.” This makes a ton of sense due to the fact that if you see real people instead of actors liking and endorsing a product, I would possibly feel more inclined to band wagon along with everyone. Also the power of building a non annoying relationship with your customer would likely make them feel good about returning to your product.

5 States To Increase Class Time By 300 Hours

5 States To Increase Class Time By 300 Hours | Finding My Career and Education | Scoop.it

WASHINGTON — Open your notebooks and sharpen your pencils. School for thousands of public school students is about to get quite a bit longer.

 

My thoughts: What's up with Colorado adding so many changes recently? They passed the law allowing weed to be legalized in the state and now they're trying to increase the amount of time in school. It almost sounds to me like they're willing to pass a number of laws to find out what will happen as a smaller level of government in order to possibly decide what to do when such options come up as a national level. I'm not positive that adding more time for school would really fix all schools education issues because as is many students barely even want or do go to an entire school week, and I feel like adding more work won't make students want to participate more in school. I also bet that the majority of teachers don't want to work more hours and do more assignments. Who's to say that we will even expand on our curriculum given more time anyways, which is the real challenge?

3 Big Marketing Trends That Are Right Around the Corner

3 Big Marketing Trends That Are Right Around the Corner | Finding My Career and Education | Scoop.it

My Thoughts: Altough I know that I have an interest in marketing I haven't ever really given it a lot of thought about what type of marketing I would want to be engaged in. "  We live in a digital age, but continue to manage in analog terms.  There is a strong need to integrate those two realities and so we can expect that the next wave of innovation will close the distance between the virtual and the physical world.  Here are 3 things that are coming in a few years." If I were to focus my college career on a marketing type of career I also believe that it would be wise to be looking forward and focusing on future needed abilities and tasks. “The past ten years have been about discovering new ways to create, invent and work together on the Web.  The next ten years will be about applying those lessons to the real world.” This makes it seem as if the most logical choice would be to get involved in  the digital to analog transition.

Poll: 63 percent of college grads think the American Dream is dead

Poll: 63 percent of college grads think the American Dream is dead | Finding My Career and Education | Scoop.it

My thoughts: Even though this is very similar to our Junior year in English, it's even more impactful when the people who are going out and striving to reach the American Dream don't really believe in it anymore. I'm not one to talk, but it makes me wonder has my generation lost some of the work ethic that past generations have always known to be able to just push through? Or is it also an accumulation of the times advancing with the growth of technology that has changed the type of work for us to do? With an increase of huger and huger debts, less and less jobs for even graduates, and overly priced houses, who can really blame them for having less faith than those in the past? Optimism and attitude have a lot to do with how we deal with our issues but how are we to even feel optimistic with such dreadful contributions from our own economy? We'll have to move or make lemons out of lemonade, no one gets anywhere just sitting and complaining.
