0

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., April 4, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Goodwin Publishing, LLC announced today the release of its new audio and e-book, “Teaching English Abroad: A Financial Prayer Answered” (ISBN: 987-1-937860-20-2), by Jonathan Goodwin.

This e-book and audio book is written for anyone who wants to explore the world while making money. It’s ideal for people who are about to graduate; are recent graduates; or for those seeking a career change. All that is needed is a B.A. or B.S. degree.

“Teaching English Abroad” is the perfect gift for a recent graduate or someone about to graduate.

“It’s unfortunate, but the current job market in the U.S. and Europe is grim. As a result, many graduates are finding that they have to move in with their parents or take jobs out of their field that pay less – what many consider ‘underemployed,’” explains Goodwin. “Teaching abroad is the ideal alternative – people save money while exploring the world. It’s an ideal situation.”

Many view this to be the bible of teaching English in South Korea.

“It’s written for anyone who wants to take control of their career and life. I did it and I’m anxious to share what I learned with others. It’s a combination of self-help and how-to rolled into one,” adds Goodwin.

“Teaching English Abroad” will show people how to step away from a 40-hour work week and to expand their horizons while helping others. It’s chock full of budget tables and tracks to show people how they can save a little or a lot.

The book is comprised of 10 chapters: My Early Mistakes; A Visit to Korea Rising from the Ashes; Facets of My Life in Korea; Being an Educator; The Savings Mantra; More on Budgeting; Newcomers Ahoy; On the Basics of Learning and Teaching; Traveling in Korea; and Why Do you Need a Financial Education?

These chapters are filled with practical and proven tips that include general financial advice, teaching tips, traveler tips and more. The book will also alleviate any anxieties that people may have about teaching in South Korea.

Readers will learn how to find and apply for the trustworthy private and public schools that are currently hiring English teachers in South Korea. Foolproof tips likely lead to hiring.

And, readers who decide to pursue this career opportunity will get the experience of teaching; have free time to enjoy the country and live a stress-free and adventurous life; and have freedom to explore and live on their own. Basically, teachers who work in South Korea are getting paid to travel the world and to see some of the most exotic locations out there while still making enough money to pay off debt and live comfortably.

The first two chapters of “Teaching English Abroad: A Financial Prayer Answered” are free to download. If readers want more, they can simply name their price at: http://www.iteachenglishabroad.com/books/
or they can order the e-book and audio book combination for a flat fee of $19.95.

About the Author:
Jonathan A. Goodwin is a graduate of San Diego University. He taught in South Korea for three years. He earned the title and position of faculty manager, a title that is synonymous with “Headmaster.” He was in charge of all operations at a top-ranked private academy in South Korea; he knows what it takes to get hired and how to make it as a teacher in South Korea.

Helping Employers With Federal Funds Makes Good Business Sense

0

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif., March 21, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The Workforce Investment Board (WIB) of San Bernardino County was recognized by the nonpartisan U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) for innovative business-friendly programs. The WIB was asked to present to congress how it used Workforce Investment Act funds to encourage job retention and hiring.

In a report titled “Innovative Collaborations between Workforce Boards and Employers Helped Meet Local Needs,” the U.S. GAO referenced 14 local initiatives. Two of the initiatives included San Bernardino County Workforce Investment Board’s successful collaboration with Technical Employment Training, Inc. and its Rapid Response Layoff Aversion program.

Executive Director Sandy Harmsen testified before the Senate Subcommittee on Employment and Workforce Safety in addressing workforce needs at the regional level.

“Our Workforce Investment Board was able to quickly and effectively take action when our region was hit with business closures and lay-offs that affected thousands of residents in San Bernardino County,” Harmsen said. “We knew which industries would need workers in the long-term. Through the relationships we established with industry councils, businesses and educational providers we have deployed federal funds to save jobs, train workers with skills needed by employers and encourage hiring.”

In 2011, the San Bernardino County Workforce Investment Board’s Business Resource Team performed 27 Rapid Response visits to companies that were laying off employees. More than 1,900 dislocated workers were assisted through Rapid Response which included workshops on understanding unemployment plans, rolling over 401K plans and Cobra benefits. These residents were also introduced to the local Employment Resource Centers (ERCs) for free workshops on job searching, resume writing and interview skills, as well as how they could qualify for no-cost job training programs and job placement support.

“The San Bernardino County Workforce Investment Board can contribute much to the national conversation on how to put America back to work,” said Supervisor Josie Gonzales, Chair and Fifth District Supervisor.

“For instance, the WIB’s collaboration with Technical Employment Training, Inc., is a great example of how we are working together to prepare a skilled workforce and provide businesses with the manpower needed to grow and diversify. The Technical Employment Training program trains dislocated and disabled workers to attain two National Institute for Metalworking Skills Machining Level 1 certifications. The fact that 90 percent of its first class was placed in jobs with local manufacturers is an awesome success story worth sharing,” added Gonzales.

Last year, 3,370 County residents were trained last year using Workforce Investment Act funds to enter long-term careers in growth industries such as Health Care, Aviation, Transportation and Logistics, Advanced Manufacturing and Environmental Technology.

The Workforce Investment Act of 1998 created a comprehensive workforce investment system that brought together multiple federally funded employment and training programs into a single system, called the one-stop system.

About the Workforce Investment Board of San Bernardino County:
The Workforce Investment Board of San Bernardino County is comprised of private business representatives and public partners appointed by the County Board of Supervisors. The Board strives to strengthen the skills of the County’s workforce through partnerships with business, education and community-based organizations.

The Workforce Investment Board, through the County’s Economic Development Agency and Workforce Development Department, operates the County’s Employment Resource Centers (ERCs) and Business Resource Centers (BRCs). The ERCs provide individuals with job training, placement and the tools to strengthen their skills to achieve a higher quality of life. The BRCs support and provide services to the County’s businesses including employee recruitment.

Workforce Investment Board of San Bernardino CountySAN BERNARDINO, Calif., Feb. 24, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Continuing its support of young people facing obstacles to employment, the Workforce Investment Board of San Bernardino County partnered with the Roadtrip Nation Experience to provide an intensive curriculum to the Year-round Workforce Investment Act youth program.

By giving students the tools to interview and film someone in their career of interest, the Roadtrip Nation Experience empowers students to define their own roads in life; to make school actually matter by relating what they study to their real-world experiences; and open doors to different pathways and possibilities.

“This is an opportunity for our youth to interview specialists in careers they are interested in and find inspiration, as well as practical advice to achieve their dreams,” said Sandy Harmsen, Executive Director of the Workforce Investment Board and Director of the Workforce Development Department for San Bernardino County. “In 2011, 13 youth service providers helped more than 1,320 youth through the Year-Round WIA Youth Program and many of those young people go on to find jobs or higher education that lead to long-term careers.”

“It has been a pleasure working with San Bernardino County Workforce Investment Board,” Molly Gazin, Educator Network Coordinator of Roadtrip Nation. “The facilitators are enthusiastic and dedicated to the futures of the youth involved and that is evident in their experience with the program. We’re excited to see the results of the final Roadtrip Projects that they’re hard at work on right now.”

The San Bernardino County Workforce Investment Act Youth Program gives eligible youth access to services designed to increase educational opportunities, develop better job skills, explore career options, develop leadership qualities, participate in adult and peer mentoring and counseling and obtain valuable work experience.

Students in the program receive career counseling, reading and math remediation, tutoring, alternative secondary schooling, vocational training, leadership development and job placement. They also complete workshops that taught work readiness, problem solving, life skills and computer literacy.

“These youth services prepare students for the future by helping them to earn a degree, certificate or a paid internship, and obtain much needed career skills,” said Supervisor Josie Gonzales, Chair and Fifth District Supervisor. “The Roadtrip Nation Experience provides each student with an opportunity to develop leadership skills, confidence and an awareness of professional occupations available to them.”

The BRCs support and provide services to the County’s businesses including employee recruitment.

About Roadtrip Nation:

In the summer of 2001, three friends decided to take a Roadtrip to seek their place in the world. The idea behind the Roadtrip was simple: If you don’t know what to do with your life, talk to people who are doing what they love, then ask them how they got there. The trio hit the road in a mechanically unsound Green RV, and three months and 17,000 miles later, had interviewed 85 eclectic individuals.

Since then, Roadtrip Nation has evolved into a Movement to help individuals define their own roads in life: Including seven seasons on public television, three books, an online community, and a student network on more than 350 campuses.

In 2009, the Movement expanded into education with the creation of RoadtripNation.org and the development of The Roadtrip Nation Experience, a hands-on, engaging curriculum that guides students through an explorative process to learn about pathways relevant to their own individuality.

Roadtrip Nation is dedicated to inspiring people everywhere to create lives based on doing what they love. For more information, visit roadtripnation.com and roadtripnation.org.
