ANNOUNCEMENT OF VACANCY
The Frederick County School System seeking applications for the position of Track & Field coach at Millbrook High School. This award-winning, highly successful school division cares deeply for its studerts ahd staff, maintains modern facilities, has a comprehensive curriculum, and offers a wide range of programs including regional special education, and vocational/education offerings

April 7, 2012
To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing to apply for the Head Track and Field Coach position at Millbrook High School. Attached, you will find my resume which lists all of my past experience and qualifications in greater detail.
As you can see, I was Head Coach at Lakeville Senior High School for seven years before I moved to Virginia. When I first started there, the team had never won an event, let alone an entire meet, but during my time there they eventually won the state championship. Apart from necessary recruiting, I firmly believe that, with the appropriate training and encouragement, all student athletes can be successful.
Lastly, as I have only just moved to Virginia, I do not possess a Virginia license, but do possess the Iowa equivalent. I am therefore qualified to be licensed here and am in the process of obtaining one. I will not have a secondary-education endorsement on the license. Please call me if you have any questions.

NEW YORK - A barrel of light, sweet crude for February delivery dropped $1.75 to $50.49 in midday trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Prices dropped as low as $50.05, their lowest since May 25, 2005, shortly after the inventory report's release by the federal Energy Information Administration.
U.S. crude oil stocks leaped by 6.8 million barrels to 321.5 million, when analysts had been expecting an increase of just 325,000 barrels, according to a Dow Jones Newswires Survey. The EIA also said that inventories are above the upper end of the average range for this time of year.
Motor gasoline inventories, meanwhile, rose by 3.5 million barrels to 216.8 million, above analysts' expectations of a 2.6 million barrel rise. Distillate stocks, including heating oil and diesel fuel, rose by 900,000 barrels to 141.9 million barrels, compared with analysts' expectations of a 1.3 million barrel rise.

FREELANCE BENEFITS AND DRAWBACKS
Freelancers generally enjoy a greater variety of assignments than in regular employment, and almost always have more freedom to choose their work schedule. The experience also allows the opportunity to build up a portfolio of work and cultivate a network of clients in hopes of obtaining a permanent position.
A major drawback is the uncertainty of work - and thus income - and lack of company benefits such as health insurance or retirement pay.
Another drawback is that freelancers often must handle contracts, legal issues, accounting, marketing, and other business functions by themselves. If they do choose to pay for professional services. they can sometimes turn into significant out-of-pocket expenses. Working hours can extend beyond the standard working day and working week.

The attachment is pretty funny, so enjoy it (I don't think a short email break should keep you from meeting your deadline!)
Also. if you want a lunch break, just hit reply and tell me when I should come. I'll walk downstairs to your office.
The sweet old couple
A little old couple walked into a fast food restaurant. The little old man walked up to the counter, ordered the food, paid, and took the tray back to the table where the little old lady sat. On the tray there was a hamburger, a small bag of fries and a drink. Carefully the old man cut the hamburger in two, and divided the fries into two neat piles. He sipped the drink and passed it to the little old lady, who took a sip and passed it back. A young man on a nearby table had watched the old couple and felt sorry for them. He offered to buy them another meal, but the old man politely declined, saying that they were used to sharing everything. The old man began to eat his food, but his wife sat still, not eating. The young man continued to watch the couple. He still felt he should be offering to help. As the little old man finished eating, the old lady had still not started on her food. "Ma'am, why aren't you eating?" asked the young man sympathetically.
The old lady looked up and said politely, "I'm waiting for the teeth."

To Whom It May Concern:
My name is Robert Thomas and I am interested M volunteeing for your program. However, I have a few questions I would like to ask before I make my final decision
First of all, I am proficient in Spanish and would like to work in a Spanish-speaking country. What Spanish-speaking countries does your program work in? I'm afraid those are the only ones I would be interested in.
Secondy, how long of a commitment wodd this be? Is it for a few weeks, the summer, for a year, or as long as you choose? My preference is to work for the entire year, but I am flexible and I could adapt to your needs.
Finally, are there specific qualifications you are looking for? I am straight out of college and have no professional experience However, I spent most of my academic career volunteering in the surrounding community. For example, I volunteered at a senior citizen living center.

WHAT YOUR CLOTHES SAY ABOUT YOU
- Appropriate attire supports your image as a person who takes the interview process seriously and understands the nature of the industry in which you are trying to become employed.
- Be aware that In some industries, customer contact and image presented to the customer is critical. In such industries, your attire will be judged more critically.
- Your attire should be noticed as being appropriate and well-fitting, but it should not take center stage.
- If you are primarily remembered for your interview attire, this is probably because you made an error in judgment!
- Dressing nicely and appropriately is a compliment to the person you meet, so if in doubt, err on the side of dressing better than you might need to
- Even if you are aware that employees of an organization dress casually on the job, dress up for the interview unless you are specifically told otherwise by the employer.
- Never confuse an interview or business function with a social event. Dont dress for a party or a date.
- Not every contact with an employer requires interview attire. For some occasions business casual is appropriate. See business casual for when to wear it and what it is.

ONE STUDENT'S STORY
Matt Xiong always knew he'd go to college. After all, he's the olders of twelve kids. "I'm the guinea pig," he laughs. I'll have to be the positive role model. "More seriously, Matt adds," I knew that if I worked hard, I'd make it. If you really want college you can do it. Just work hard. Stand out. Don't be afraid to go after what you want"
Any tips? "Put yourself in a position to get opportunities that open doors for you. In high school, be involved in student government, sports, the math team..."
As for college costs, "You can get grants from your church, from your college. You have to have a sense of maturity, you have to really want it. The money will follow"
Câu 40: What does Matt mean when he says he's the "guinea pig"?

Dear SOCY101 Class,
I thought that while you were writing your final papers, it might interest and perhaps even help you to look at the latest unemployment survey results.
Try to analyze these findings keeping in mind all we've discussed about gender and race. What may have caused these numbers? In what ways is quantitative survey limited? How do these results agree with or contradict what we have discussed in class? Don't forget the basic theories studied at the beginning of our time together
Attached is the survey. Good luck with my final and with others. I'll look forward to reading your papers, and to those I don't see, enjoy your summer vacations.
