Hello my name is Jeanine Jenkins from Chicago, Illinois (USA). Before I started college, I ran into difficulty in getting a job because of the demand for degrees. What was interesting was the fact that I manage to get employment a little faster before achieving a degree. As with most college students, I could not decide what I wanted to major in so I went with hospitality management. One of the biggest mistakes I made was not taking advantage of the networking opportunities available to me. During my sophomore year in college, I was offered a position in my field with the Marriott Hotel. The catch was if I took the job, I would not be able to finish my degree. So I turned down the offer to finish my degree assuming that opportunity will be back to greet me again. I was definitely wrong. After receiving my Bachelor's, I had a terrible time in finding work. When 911 hit so did my field. Going to job fairs, I then realized that my degree was not marketable enough. So, I decided to get my MBA. I felt with this degree I will be more marketable and not just restricted to one area. After the MBA degree still no job. I then decided that I wanted to go into teaching being unsure in whether to pursue a PhD I decided a 2nd Master's in Adult Education and Training. Even when I go to job fairs I am now no longer under the under qualified file. I am now under the over qualified file. My heart is still for teaching others. I said enough is enough I will create my own opportunity. So, now I have my own document creations and tutoring business in helping children to adults in reaching their fullest potential.
Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management (Chicago State University) 2003 Master's of Business Administration (University of Phoenix) 2006 Master of Arts in Education/Adult Education & Training (University of Phoenix - online) 2009
Tutoring and creating professional documents
My professional long-term goal is to hopefully secure employment in higher education.
I enjoy utilizing various Web 2.0 tools in being able to keep up with family, friends and colleagues through Skype, Facebook, and WiZiQ. Sometime this year, I want to begin writing my biography.
