If you are one of the many people thinking of changing or improving your current situation and lifestyle, you may have considered enrolling in a for-profit, postsecondary career training institution. These are the schools that you often see advertised on TV, in local newspapers, and on the Internet. But due to bad business practices and deceptive approaches, these schools have created an environment that puts profit over competence, leading thousands of students to suffer financial and educational losses as a result. This book was written with a specific objective: to create awareness of for-profit, postsecondary career training institutions. It is based on my own experiences working for many years at these kinds of institutions. One of the institutions I worked for is regarded today as the biggest educational failure in the United States and possibly the world. Bad business practices and deceptive approaches, coupled with unqualified instructors, created an environment that put profit over competence and led to the collapse of the company. Thousands of students suffered financial and educational losses as a result. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeff Werden.

And yet this widely misunderstood vocation generates more revenue for companies - and creates more opportunity for individuals - than virtually any other job. Millions of people are looking for a better way to make a living, but most would never consider becoming a salesman - even though no other job can offer the same number of available positions, income potential, schedule flexibility, or job security. Thousands of business owners are sure their fortunes could be improved, if only they could ´´find someone who can sell´´. But they have no idea how to advertise for, interview, select, hire, train, or manage productive salespeople. And most flounder when trying to sell themselves.

Career Diplomacy - now in its second edition - is an insider´s guide that examines the foreign service as an institution, a profession, and a career. Harry W. Kopp and Charles A. Gillespie, both of whom had long and distinguished careers in the foreign service, provide a full and well-rounded picture of the organization, its place in history, its strengths and weaknesses, and its role in American foreign affairs. Based on their own experiences and through interviews with over 100 current and former foreign service officers and specialists, the authors lay out what to expect in a foreign service career, from the entrance exam through midcareer and into the senior service - how the service works on paper, and in practice. The second edition addresses major changes that have occurred since 2007: the controversial effort to build an expeditionary foreign service to lead the work of stabilization and reconstruction in fragile states; deepening cooperation with the U.S. military and the changing role of the service in Iraq and Afghanistan; the ongoing surge in foreign service recruitment and hiring at the Department of State and U.S. Agency for International Development; and the growing integration of USAID´s budget and mission with those of the Department of State. The book is published by Georgetown University Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Wayne Shepherd. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/001175/bk_acx0_001175_sample.mp3.

Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill was born on 30 November 1874. He was an heir of a noble family of the Dukes of Marlborough. His ancestor George Spencer, a member of the aristocratic Spencer family, was proud of his consanguinity with John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough, so he has decided to choose Spencer-Churchill as his surname when he took the title of Duke of Marlborough in 1817. Winston Churchill´s father, Lord Randolph Churchill was a politician and the third son of John Spencer-Churchill, 7th Duke of Marlborough. Following the example of his father, Winston preferred to be known as Churchill. His mother was also born in a respected family, being a daughter of Leonard Jerome, a millionaire from the USA. Lady Randolph Churchill, gave birth to her son in Blenheim Palace, Woodstock, Oxfordshire, two months before the expected date. When Winston was a kid, his grandfather had been appointed Viceroy, and Winston´s father, Lord Randolph, was hired as his private secretary. At that time the family had lived in Dublin and had used to stay there until Winston turned six. Dublin is also a birthplace of his younger brother John Strange Spencer-Churchill. Those years in Ireland are considered to be very important for the formation of the character of the future Prime minister because frequent parades by the Vice Regal Lodge (now the official residence of the President of Ireland) were the probable reason of his passion towards military matters. 1.
