Road Trip

first_imgLike many other young people, plant pathology graduate student Russell Ingram’s friends have an epic road trip planned for this summer. The difference is that instead of setting off for a music festival in the desert or visiting a beach, Ingram’s pals are hitting the road in search of jobs.About two-dozen graduate students from the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES) will set off this July for the breadbasket of America in order to meet with potential employers and research partners.Ingram and his fellow students know that a degree by itself, even a graduate degree, isn’t enough to land the job of your dreams. They’re going straight to potential employers to find out what they want from potential applicants. Think of it as a career fair, but in reverse, Ingram said.The students, who are studying in the departments of entomology, plant pathology and crop and soil sciences, will travel by bus July 18–21 to visit the headquarters of Dow AgroSciences in Indianapolis, Indiana, and the Purdue University Crop Diagnostic Training and Research Center for their midseason diagnostic workshop.“Agricultural companies such as Dow provide some of the top-paying and most sought-after jobs in industry,” Ingram said. “I thought the most efficient means of learning the wants and needs of the industry was to go straight to the source and let them tell us what they are looking for in a potential employee.“The added benefit to visiting the Dow campus is that students will have the opportunity to meet with (human resources) staff, the summer internship committee and crop protection leaders to discuss internship and job opportunities. The ultimate goal for this trip will be to help at least one student get an internship or a job offer.”Ingram secured enough grant money so that each student is only paying $50 for the four-day trip. Dow provided $3,500 in funding through its Dow Aid-to-Education program. He also collected about $5,000 in funding through the departments represented and from a grant provided by the Society of Aspiring Plant Pathologists.“These graduate students are to be commended for taking the initiative to travel to the headquarters of Dow AgroSciences to learn about career opportunities,” said Jean Bertand, the assistant dean for instruction at CAES, who was instrumental in securing the grant funding that made the trip a reality. “They are positioning themselves to be well-informed, which will serve them well when it is time to get a job.”To follow along on their road trip visit blog.caes.uga.edu/cropprotection or follow the students on Twitter @UGACropCareers.For more information about the departments of entomology, plant pathology and crop and soil sciences and other graduate programs at CAES, please visit students.caes.uga.edu/graduate.html.last_img read more

How to market to people not like you

first_imgI recently had the opportunity to hear Kelly McDonald keynote a session at the National Speakers Association on “How to Market To People Not Like You.” It is based on a book with a similar title: Crafting the Customer Experience for People Not Like You: How To Delight and Engage the Customers Your Competitors Don’t Understand.“If I can figure out what you value, I can get into your wallet,” McDonald said. When defining diversity, she went on to explain that she actually doesn’t like that word. “It’s really more about people who are not like you,” she said. For example, she does not have children so those people that have kids are not like her. Therefore, people not like you comes in many forms: gender, religion, age, generation, ethnicity, geographic, etc. (this list is endless).“Understanding someone different from you means understanding their life,” McDonald added.She offered six strategies for marketing to people not like you:Be relevant—“You need to identify what people want and then give it to them,” McDonald said. She noted that Target succeeded where K-Mart failed because Target’s strategy of “style on a budget” resonated with women. continue reading » 6SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

CUs go HELOC crazy

first_imgI had a sense that more credit unions were getting involved with HELOC’s but I didn’t know how big the trend was until I read this article in today’s American Banker. The paper reports that the growth in credit union HELOC lending combined with an overall decline in the number of HELOC accounts has sent the share of HELOC’s owned by credit unions soaring. In fact, credit unions now hold 13.16% of the HELOC market up from 9.63% in 2015. The graph accompanying today’s blog underscores just how big the increase has been.What’s even more interesting is the reason the article points to for the trend. While banks are still holding back the reigns with more conservative underwriting standards, credit unions are more comfortable with underwriting loans based in part on comfort with the member’s payment history. Ezra Becker, a senior Vice President at Trans Union Financial Service Business Unit points out, “credit unions do a good job working with member loyalty so they may be willing to make a loan that another institution may be unwilling to make.”Now for a boring compliance reminder. This increased interest in HELOC’s is coming just as changes to HMDA regulations mean that any institution that makes more than 500 home equity loans a year as of January 1, 2018, and meets other compliance thresholds, will now have to report these loans. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

first_img Healthcare,  Human Services,  National Issues,  Press Release,  Statement Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf released the following statement condemning the passing of the health care bill by the United State House of Representatives:“This is a sad day for millions of Pennsylvania families who now continue to worry about their access to health care.

According to Sportitalia, Napoli confirmed that they were at the final stage of the contract paperwork for the 21-year-old striker. Despite the reports in France of a deal worth €81m, in Italy, they have never budged from the €60m mark and that does seem more realistic for Napoli. Lille are likely to also accept a player as part of the deal and reports pointed at the third-choice goalkeeper, Orestis Karnezis. The salary seems to have been agreed at a five-year contract worth €3.5m per season plus another €0.5m in bonuses. It had been confirmed that Osimhen passed his medical last Saturday in Rome, and the whole world has been waiting to see the player unveil as soon as possible. Initially, Friday(today) was fixed for the official unveiling of the player but the paperwork process seems to be moving on snail speed. read also:‘With consistency, hard work Osimhen could surpass world best players’last_img read more

Pollard’s Adelaide Strikers suffer fourth loss of big Bash season

first_imgMELBOURNE, Australia (CMC) – Kieron Pollard failed to make an impact and Adelaide Strikers suffered their fourth loss of the Big Bash League season, when Melbourne Stars edged to a two-wicket victory yesterday.Pollard conceded 17 runs in two wicket-less overs, as the Stars successfully chased 153 for victory in the 22nd match of the tournament at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.Discarded Australia fast bowler Ben Hilfenhaus notched the Stars over the finish line, when he chipped a delivery from medium-fast bowler Michael Neser through square leg for a single with three deliveries remaining.Earlier, Pollard struck a couple of boundaries in 16 from 13 balls before Hilfenhaus had him caught at mid-on in the penultimate over from a miscued pull, as the Strikers reached 152 for eight from their allocation of 20 overs, after they were put in to bat.The result meant that the Stars now have six points – the same number of points as Perth Scorchers – but they are third in the standings, due to a superior net run rate.The Strikers, whose squad also includes the Barbados-born, England all-rounder Christopher Jordan, are one of four teams with four points. They are however, sixth in the standings, due to net run rate.Brisbane Heat, whose squad includes West Indies Twenty20 star leg-spinner Samuel Badree, and Sydney Sixers are the current front-runners with eight points each – but the Heat have the superior net run rate.The BBL continues today, when Badree and the Heat face the Scorchers at the Gabba, while Pollard and the Strikers have to wait until next Monday to see further action when they host the Melbourne Renegades, whose line-up includes star West Indies spinner Sunil Narine, at the Adelaide Oval.last_img read more
