What to Do with a Art Degree

Most of the time, when someone graduates with a Biology degree, others will assume he/she will enter into the medical profession as a doctor. So did I! I once planned on becoming a doctor, along with my friends in the Biology program at UC Irvine, but in the end, only a few of us ended up as doctors. What different paths we all ended up taking! You might likewise be in the same situation we once were. You might think that you ARE going to be a doctor…or you might realize that you don’t want to be become a doctor, and are wondering what you can do.
Here are some options for you to consider, based on real-life professions that my friends and I have ended up going into…all with the same Art degree. Each career below lists some benefits as well as downfalls to each of the professions, so that you can get a clear idea of what you’ll possibly be getting into.

1. Medical Doctor: Of course, if you DO plan on becoming a doctor…

One of my friends is currently working as an resident in Pediatric Rehabilitation at Loma Linda University Medical Center. She went through 4 years at UC Irvine, graduating with a B.S. in Neurobiology, took a year off to work at an outpatient surgery center assisting doctors, and spent another 4 years at Loma Linda Medical going through medical school. She is currently in her first year as a resident in the Pediatric Rehab program at Loma Linda. She loves her job because she can work with children, and that “it’s a privilege to be able to share very intimate information so you can help them whey they are most vulnerable and sick”. She also had the opportunity as a medical student to travel overseas and provide medical care to a village in Thailand that did not have access to regular medical care, and enjoys being able to teach her young patients about their bodies and how to use things, such as a stethoscope, to learn about themselves. Another friend also is a resident at a Kaiser Permanente hospital, after earning his B.S. in Biological Sciences at UCI, spending a year off after that to work in a lab for the city, and then spending another 4 years at the Chicago Medical School before spending a few years in residency at Kaiser Permanente.… Read the rest

It will be extremely handy to get the one-day trading process that worked under almost all conceivable problems without fail. Whether the industry was consolidating, trending upward, or perhaps trending downward, the best phone system would produce profits irrespective of prevailing market problems.

It is not different when trading. On specific days one setup will constantly result in profits. On another hand, the next day similar set up is going to produce only losses. I do not have a rational reason for this particular phenomenon other than outlining the industry is continually changing and evolving. Your skill to decide which trades will be lucrative on a particular day is a primary skill.

For instance, on many days the market is likely to honor resistance and also support levels. Time and time again the price actions will advance and drop to previous resistance and support levels and also change direction.

Naturally, that makes for many precise trading for individuals that are acquainted with trading support and opposition. On the very next morning, however, the marketplace might don’t pay interest to resistance and support and blast through your help and resistance level as though they didn’t exist.
