Education Can Give You The Competitive Edge

Nowadays in which unemployment is high and jobs are scarce, many people are going back to school and get some kind of college education to freshen their minds and give themselves a huge advantage in this very competitive job market. Finding a job nowadays is very hard, and with many competition, it is best to arm ourselves with the right knowledge and tools to put ourselves on top of the lists of applicants. There is less demand and plenty of supply in the job market nowadays, many employers have the advantage to be very picky who they are going to hire, and they usually want the bests to join their team that can help grow their business or organization. So if there are several applicants that are applying the same job that you are applying, the applicant with whom the company believed that they can best benefit from as far as knowledge and expertise are concern then such applicant is most likely the one that will be hired. Inorder to arm yourself with knowledge and competitive edge, its best to be knowledgeable about the job tasks that you are applying for and you need to be able to prove not only in papers that you have what it takes, but also show in action your capability to get things done.

Education is one of the best gift that you can ever give yourself. Nobody can ever take your knowledge away from you. Once you know something and become an expert on it, then you become a pro. Its true that there are many free resources available online nowadays, but getting the motivation to regularly read your books, do your assignments, and study have been a difficult process for a lot of people if they decide to do it themselves. That's why being in a classroom, listening to a teacher explain the subject matter is still a very effective approach to learning, not to mention the certificate that you will receive at the end of the course is an easy proof that you can show during job application that you have what it takes.  Personally, I always want to know more about computer graphics and design, although I have some knowledge about the subject matter, I would like to be an expertise on it and learn all the new tools that experts use to get the job done in the graphic and design field. Depend on your line of interest, but if you are interested in becoming a Graphic Designer as well there are graphic design courses in Miami and other major cities that you can go to, its a step closer to your becoming an expert on. It helps a lot when you have a passion for something that you decide you want to learn because learning it is easier.

Gentle Giant Cat Fish

We have this cat fish for several years already. We bought her when she was a very tiny little fish, around an inch total length. Now, she is more than a foot long! Quite a gentle giant, I should say, doesn't move much, pretty much want to be left alone most of the time. Her favorite places in the tank is in the corner or dark places where the rest of the fishes give her the least destruction possible.

When we bought her at a local store, we were told that a cat fish is a great fish to have to keep the tank clean because they eat on algeas, so any algeas that are being developed in the tank can be a great food source for this gentle giant. You can also purchase algea tablets in most pet stores for feeding them.

We have several different types of fish in our tank. And our cat fish seems to get along with most of them pretty well. The only time I remember than she had a problem with another fish was when we had this super energetic bothersome Koi fish that drives her up a wall. It was not her fault though, the Koi fish was the one that bumps into her, and bothers her, and as a result she did try to chase that koi fish once in awhile. Unfortunately, that Koi fish passed away, and so far none of the other fishes we have seems to really bother her anymore. As long as she have her little corner away from the school of fish, she is pretty much happy and content!
