Helping Your Child Choose A Business Career

Helping your child choose the right degree for their college education can become stressful. Often teenagers don't really know what they want to do with their lives. Leading your child towards a business administration degree can help solve the issue, since this degree tends to work in many different industries. Unless your child knows they want to be a lawyer, doctor or some other type of career that requires specific training, a business degree might be a good program choice.

What to Expect with a Business Degree
As your child moves from high school to college, they need to declare a major, at some point. Once they do this, they can expect to take basic classes, electives and classes specific to the chosen major. Parents can help their children by discussing the different classes they will need to go through, as they work towards their chosen major. Here are a few of the requirements of most business degrees.

1.  Business Core Classes
Basic business classes are certainly a part of any business degree. They include classes in accounting, marketing, finance and economics. Most of these are introduction classes and will help to build the student's knowledge for more advanced classes later in their college career.

2.  Specialized Classes
Once your child finishes the core classes, along with basic classes, such as English, math and science classes, they can choose a specialty for their degree. This could be a general business, finance, human resources or one of many other business specialties. Within their specialty, the student will take classes to build their knowledge in their area of expertise.

3.  Electives for a Minor
Electives allow students to take any type of class they want. It's also possible to use elective credits to minor in another area of business. For example, if your child chooses to specialize in human resources, they can still minor in accounting or another area of business. This can help add the resume, as they move from college into the business world.

Job Opportunities a Business Degree Provides
Many of the career options for those with a business degree span across many industries. They vary from managing an office to accounting to many human resource positions. Every type of company needs those with specialties in different areas of business. This type of degree can lead to many opportunities and since the degree is necessary in most industries, it's easier for graduates to go from one job to another, when necessary.

Another possibility with a degree in business is graduate school. Those with a bachelor's degree can move on towards a number of different Master's degree programs. If your child finishes a business degree and decides they want to enter a different area of study, they can often use their degree to gain acceptance into the Master's program of their choice.

Many doors open when a degree program is finished. If you want to help put your child on the right path towards success in the business world, you can help lead them towards the right degree program as they enter college. Business may not be right for all students, but it's a good path for those undecided or looking for a program that will allow them to work in a number of different fields.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
