Hiring the new President of BeWise College

For this exercise my group and I, we decided to hold the meeting for whom we were going to select for the vacant position of President of the college. We had picked this week to hold the entire process. The interviews were conducted Monday, the cuts were made Tuesday, Wednesday we held the second interview for the prospects we thought we best qualified, and today we held the meeting for making a decision for whom we think would be the best fit for the job. Friday is when we notify the individual we think would be best suited for the position and send out letters of apology to those who didn’t get selected. The initial process started with the team over at HR sent out the job description the Monday prior to the day of the interviews using very specific career websites such as Career Builder, Monster, Yahoo, just to name a few and our school website to bring in potential applicants for the job. The list of applications we had to go through was enormous; it was well over 100 potential individuals who sent in their resumes by that Thursday morning. By that afternoon there was a checklist made to whittle that number down to 20. On this particular Thursday we had only five candidates left to choose from. There are multiple ways of contacting everyone in the group and to ensure that the message was sent, every one of those methods of notifying was used. The decision was made to meet after the classes were done at the local All-You-Can-Eat buffet in town, Golden Carroll; reservations were made for 6:30 and the party size was for 12. The group was made up of the department directors; nursing, information technology, graphic design, electronics, business, criminal justice, dean of academics, registrar, directors of career services, finance, recruiting, and myself. Because I am the network system administrator for the I.T.…...

...Hiring internally is beneficial for both the company and employee. When companys recruit from within, they offer opportunity for advancement and promotion. This technique keeps employees motivated to work hard and as a result, One decreases. Due process policies sense that job security is high, which keeps employees to stay with an organization long-term. Also, companies benefit from internal recruitment by saving money. Recruiting externally costs the company money to train someone new, while the organization can reduce the cost by training someone internally slowly. There are certain business strategies that are best supported by recruiting externally. Firstly, certain entry-level or even upper-level positions may not be filled internally since there is no one available to fill those positions. Furthermore, outsiders can bring new ideas or new ways of doing business that can help the organization. Lastly, bringing in new talent from outside sources can help strenghten an organization and weaken the competitors. On the other hand, there are several strategies that might call for internal recruitment. It is to a companys advantage to hire someone withing who is already well known. The company knows how they work, what they are able to produce, and what they can expect from them. Second, internal employees are well aware of open vacancies withing the company, which minimizes the expectations of the job. Finally, it is faster and cheaper to recruit someome internally.

...President Barack Hussein Obama President Barack Obama is one of the most exciting presidential election candidates in many years. It was just as much a strikingly symbolic moment in the evolution of the nation’s fraught racial history, a breakthrough that would have seemed unthinkable just two years ago. President Obama is a historical figure in American History because, he became the first successful African-American to become President, and he impacted society in a positive way. Barack Obama was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961, to Barack Obama, Sr. and Ann Dunham. His parents were divorced when he was only two and the absence of his father greatly affected him. After high school, Obama studied at Occidental College in Los Angeles for two years. He then transferred to Columbia University in New York, graduating in 1983 with a degree in political science. He then entered Harvard Law School in 1988. The next year, he met Michelle Robinson, an associate at Sidley & Austin law firm in Chicago. On October 3, 1992, he and Michelle were married. They moved to Kenwood, on Chicago's South Side, and welcomed two daughters: Malia born 1998 and Sasha born 2001. In February 2007, Obama made headlines when he announced his candidacy for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination. He was locked in a tight battle with former first lady and then, U.S. Senator from New York, Hillary Clinton. On June 3, 2008, however, Obama became the presumptive nominee for the Democratic......

...American Government Ulysses S. Grant Becoming the eighteenth President of the United States is an honor to me for many reasons. The history of my life, the trials and tribulations I have been put through has made me the man, and the intelligent, well-rounded President that I am today. You only have one life to live and this is the life I have conquered. On April 27, 1822 in a town known as Point Pleasant Ohio, I was born to my parents, Jesse Root Grant and Hannah Simpson, as Hiram Ulysses S. Grant. Following behind would be my siblings, Samuel Simpson Grant, Clara Rachel Grant, and Virginia Paine Grant. As I became older, my family and I moved to Georgetown, Ohio where my father pursued his business as a tanner. We lived on a simple farm where I preformed my share of chores due to the fact that the tannery did not interest me much. I developed considerable skills with handling horses while living on the family farm. In 1839, my father held an appointment for the United States Military Academy located in West Point, New York and pressured me to attend. Even though I had no interest in the military, I figured I would attend since going back to school was not an importance at the time. In 1843 I graduated from USMA ranking twenty-first in my class of thirty-nine pupils and gained a reputation at the academy as a fearless and expert horseman with an astonishing knowledge of mathematics. Upon graduating, I was assigned as a brevet second lieutenant to the fourth U.S......

Org. Behavior-the New Vice President

...Case Study: The New Vice President Part A 1. At this point, what are your predictions about Jennifer as interim vice president? Jennifer seems to be a qualified choice. She is familiar with the University, has good relationships, and appears to have the appropriate back round that qualifies her for the position. It is difficult to predict at this point due to several factors. 1) Will her relationships with her coworkers affect her decisions where they are concerned? 2) How will she work with the new President, who she barely knows. At this point, It appears Jennifer will have some transitioning, but there does not seem to be anything that would drastically keep her from growing into her new position. 2. What do you predict will be her management/leadership style? Jennifer's leadership style looks like it will follow in the mold of consideration. She has strong interpersonal relationships with her now subordinates and will likely focus on maintaining those relationships as part of her style. While this can be a good thing, Jennifer will have to make sure that her new subordinates also accept her authority. 3. What are her strengths and weaknesses? What is the basis for this assessment? Jennifer's strengths will be her familiarity with the University, the relationships she has developed, and her dedication she has demonstrated to the University. Her weaknesses will be the transition into her new position and how that may affect colleagues who are now......

Hiring and Discrimination

...1. Introduction Philadelphia—the first Hollywood film to acknowledge HIV and homosexuality stars Tome Hanks in 1993. This film shows discrimination in hiring and firing, which are disability and sexual orientation. Discrimination exists in all places, at all times, not just in Canada. Even so, people still feel confused about the bounds of hiring and firing. The definition of this phenomenon is the different treatment of two equally qualified individuals on account of their age, gender and so on. In order to protect the rights of employees, governments establish laws and regulations to restrain employers’ behaviors. At the same time, moral standards can be a looser and more elastic limitation and judgments on people’s actions. To simplify, laws are clear rules written on paper, but moral standards are not clear and depend on different people. So, what is the boundary of employment? My answer is that law is the basic standard, and moral is the justice, and whether there are discriminations or not should be measured both sides—the employees’ and employers’. 2. Kinds of Discriminations Age discrimination One of the global issues is the rapidly aging population. There will be 77.3 million people with a life expectancy of 83 years, which is an estimate by the U.S. Disease Control Center 2010, for the first wave of baby-boomer generation from 1946 to 1964. At the same time, people are working longer than before, because people are living a healthier and better...

Case 16 the New Vice President

...Case 16 – Part A 1. At this point, what are your predictions about Jennifer as the interim vice president? A glance thru Jennifer’s background at Mid-West U, briefly details out what type of person she is. She was well known and admired among her peers for her devotion to the University as well as for her energy and charm. Her characteristics portray how she devotes her entire life to her work and her social environment. She succeeds in her teaching career and administrative positions but being selected as the interim vice president doesn’t guarantee her any success. Being selected as the number-two person at the top of the organization will be a challenge, but it will allow her to manage people and have the opportunity to decide what’s best for Mid-West U Both of which are new tasks for her. “Big Five Personality Traits” The majority of personality tests qualify different personality aspects by five main traits. These traits are listed below. 1. Extraversion: outgoing, sociable, assertive. 2. Agreeableness: good-natured, trusting, cooperative. 3. Conscientiousness: responsible, dependable, persistent. 4. Emotional Stability: unworried, secure, relaxed. 5. Openness to Experience: imaginative, curious, broad-minded. These are not “types” of personalities, but dimensions of personality. So someone’s personality is the combination of each of their Big Five personality characteristics. For Jennifer, she may be very sociable (high Extroversion), very friendly......

You Are the New Senior Economic Advisor to the President of the United States

...at 8% and is expected to rise further. The inflation rate is -2.4 percent, meaning that overall, prices are falling. You are the new senior economic advisor to the President of the United States, and he has asked for your recommendation on how to proceed. Since you are an experienced Washington consultant, you know that you should first consult several other experts and get their advice. The following colleagues have expressed their insights and recommendations. Your task is to take this advice and produce your own recommendation to the President. Do not simply choose one person's advice, but pick and choose from each recommendation that you receive.  Be sure to list what you believe and why you believe it is sound advice from each of your colleagues, and also what you disagree with, and why you disagree with your colleagues. Raymond Burke, Economic Consultant -Well, first we have to distinguish between fiscal policy and monetary policy. As you know, the President does have some control over fiscal policy, along with Congress of course - but concerning monetary policy, only the Federal Reserve Bank can determine and execute monetary policy. I would recommend that the President lowers interest rates further to help businesses and consumers get back on their feet. Kathy Lee, Former Economic Advisor to the President - I think the President should consider raising taxes and reducing government spending. This will help correct the budget deficit problem and help the......

...I think George W. Bush was the worst President we ever had. My reasons begin with the 2000 election where he lost the popular vote and through manipulation and party tinkering was appointed President when Al Gore decided he no longer wanted to be part of the drawn out farce that had become the 2000 election in which he actually won the popular vote. Mr. Bush and his administration missed or ignored signs and warnings leading up to 9/11/2001 one of the worst days in our nation’s history. Following the attack on 9/11 Mr. Bush and his administration were obsessed with going to war first to Afghanistan where we knew Bin Laden was hiding and eventually losing interest in capturing or killing Bin Laden and instead focusing on an elaborate plan to trick the American population through lies and deceit into a war with Iraq, A country who had not attacked us and who had nothing to do with 9 / 11. We were bombarded with sound bites about mushroom clouds, we were told to buy duct tape and plastic because another attack was imminent. The administration presented information to the United Nations based on intelligence that the administration knew to be flawed and in some cases utterly false, all in the effort to keep the country scared and on edge while they prepared for a war of “choice”. Mr. Bush and his administration assured the American people that the war would be quick and decisive, we would bring “Shock and Awe’ to bear. In truth while Mr. Bush was staging a photo op on board......

...GOP poll. We need every vote that we can get. If we become a fool like a certain other candidate running and throw a big rally and support Kim Davis than we will surely lose more votes. When you speak to the public tell them there has to be a middle ground. I really liked what you said to the New York Times “We should seek a balance between government’s responsibility to abide by the laws of our republic and allowing people to stand by their religious convictions, While the clerk’s office has a governmental duty to carry out the law,” he added, “there should be a way to protect the religious freedom and conscience rights of individuals working in the office.” This is what needs to be said, we aren’t pissing off in won side nor are we throwing big rally’s trying a desperate attempt to get votes. Playing it cool and not letting any of your opponents get something on you that they can bring up later. We don’t need Trump to bring up something like “ Rubio supported breaking the law because he doesn’t agree with it.” We are not letting anyone get leverage on us and we are playing the middle ground so we wont lose votes and we can start catching Trump in the polls. And become the next President of the Untied States of America....
