Does the amount of Federal Student Aid increase when applying for a 4 year college?

I am currently enrolled in a community college and have been granted $5,000 in student aid for full time, and was wondering if when I transfer that the amount granted would pay for the yearly tuition of a four-year school. #graduate-school #college-admissions #federal-government...

Which businesses/jobs have prerequisites of Microsoft Office experience?

I am currently studying to obtain my Microsoft Master Certificate for 2013 Word, and will be obtaining my Excel Expert later on. I really was wondering about how often MOS experience is needed and who would be impressed by it. #business #office-management #microsoft-office #prerequisites...

What kind of jobs are out there for someone who just wants to live stream and play video games?

My brother and I have thrown around the idea of someday uploading videos onto YouTube and becoming really popular. Although recently I have been really busy with college, and my brother got hurt while working in the Carpentry field. So, he has to take nerve supplements and all he can really do...

Does a Gold level in the NCRC mean that I am actually ready for a job, or is it just an ego boost?

I scored a Gold in the National Career Readiness certification exam and wondered about its 90% qualifier. And I wonder if it just judges the test taker by their abilities on the job or just at testing in general. #job-search #job-skills #employee-training #employee-benefits...

Does the National Career Readiness certification imply that your employer will want to promote you?

When I was taking the National Career Readiness certification (NCRC) exam, there were many people who are being employed by places like Fanuiel and Eastman Chemical. So, I wonder if their employers actually want to promote them or if they just want to see their employee's status....

Is it common for employers to offer education to their employees?

I am curious because many of my friends, including my brother, have been offered a paid tuition to attend college. So, I wonder if when I get a job, is it likely that I will have an employer that will want me to continue my education. #higher-education #employer-relations #employee-training...
