As most of you may have noticed- I haven’t been posting as much as I have in the past- in fact, I haven’t posted in a few good months. I thought I should take the opportunity to share with you some of the reasons behind this.
Grad School and an MBA
A few months ago I had the opportunity to apply for a graduate assistantship (GA) at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, working on web site development for Partnership Erie, an organization at Penn State Erie “established to provide nonprofit organizations in Pennsylvania an opportunity to establish a presence in cyberspace, and to allow students to gain real work experience in a real world environment.”
Since my strength lies more in the design of a web site, and not the programming side of things, I thought that this would be an excellent opportunity for me to not only expand my skills, but to earn my MBA as well. Because I would love to teach a few college courses in the future, I had always planned on earning a master’s degree sometime in the future when I had the money.
This opportunity simply allowed me to achieve this goal sooner than I had anticipated, as the GA will pay the tuition for my degree.
I am extremely excited about this opportunity because I am also going to be assisting Dr. Kathleen Noce with an advanced e-business course that will be taught in Spring 08. I’m very excited to add e-marketing concepts to a college course that will be taught to students!
Because of the pre-grad assitantship work with Dr. Noce over the summer, the wrap-up of my work for a few of my clients, and the preparation necessary for my enrollment in the MBA program, I have not had as much time as I would have liked to work on this blog.
As I adjust to being in school again, I’m becoming more and more efficient with my time once again. I’m beginning to spend more time on stumble, and have many ideas for posts in the future. Stay tuned for a lot more to come!!
