What is a day like for an Emergency Management Professional?

I will be going for a Masters in Emergency Management after I attain my Bachelors in Public Adminstration from UCF with a minor in emergency management. After getting my Bachelors I want to spend a year of service with FEMACorp to make sure this is a field I could love. If I had a better idea of day to day functions, that could help a lot with making my decision #emergency-management #emergency-preparedness

How hard can it be to get a career in a field unrelated to your major?

I'm looking forward to college and studying Biology (or Geology) and writing/communication. I'm gonna play music and two sports on the side, work a job, hang out with friends, and pretty much whale away at my future without a shred of a plan. Ok, so I'm kidding about that last part, but I really am not as sure as I used to be about what I want to do with the rest of my life. I used to really want to go into the biomedical sciences, which I know is a very promising career field that I think I'd be really good at, but I'm starting to wonder how much I'd enjoy it 20, 30 years in the future. I'm a really outdoors-minded person (I literally work at a kayak/sport shop), and I recently discovered that I really enjoy writing/journalism. I also really want to help people in need, give back, and do some good in the world. I read a little bit about a career in Emergency Management, and I feel like that's a job that I'd be really good at, would enjoy doing, and would feel good about myself at the end of the day for doing it. It's a 2-year degree track, though, and I want to get least a 4 year degree because of all the options it opens up to me. To sum up, I guess I want to get a degree in Biology because of all the career choices it opens up to me, but I don't quite know what I want to do with it yet. Could you help me pare down my options a little bit? Thanks! #college-major #career #career-counseling #academic-advising #biology #writing #emergency-management

How do you ( a medical doctor) calm yourself down in dire situations?

For example when a patient is dying. I would like to know because I've always wanted to be a doctor since I was little, but I'm not sure how I'll handle myself in those situations. I think tips would be helpful. #doctor #medicine #emergency-room #stress-management #emergency-management
