Botanical career questions?

Right now im 13, and i am REALLY in to growing stuff, i have a ton of stuff growing, i am mainly into rare tropical plants, and i want a career in botany, and i have always had a goal to make over a 100,000 dollars a year, i love botanical studies, but i need some output one what there is to do in it, and how much i could make, any help from current botanists is appreciated.

Great question - but first off, do pay attention to spelling and write "I have" but not "i have"

You're making a big ask wanting to earn 100,000 dollars a year in any career.
It's always worth setting your sites high. But realise that you might not make that immediately and you will need to plan, prepare and set your priorities. You will also need the commitment and determination to succeed.

So here's a few suggestions.

If you are really clever and work hard you might become a botany professor in a university. And if you discover something new then you might earn extra as a consultant, write books, give talks, make films etc... You might be one of those professors who travel the world and make films on your explorations. Explain the wonders of your discoveries.

You might for example work for NASA on the design of an Eco House to take plants into space, make oxygen and recycle water, or for growing on the moon. Such things require lots of money and political will usually from governments, but nowadays the private sector are getting involved too.

Agriculture and horticulture are industries you might consider starting a business in. Can you grow your own plants to sell and distribute? Think about prices, costs and numbers. Is there something you could add to the horticultural industry that would turn your growing business into something extra special? Think about your potential customers and what they might want that they don't have.

There are other big industries that employ botanists. Wine making and brewing for example. Botany skills are involved at every stage from growing the barley, hops, in fields - knowing varieties to plant, how to grow the crop to maximum yield, when to harvest, monitoring for disease and for quality. All that and more goes into making the taste of beer and similarly with wine from grape vines. Then there is the culture and strain of yeast that go into the brew, and the brewing process itself. If you were promoted to become a manager in this industry you might be on the way to earning your target.

Plants are vital to all human life. Think what it would be like without grass (no rice, corn, sugar... ...) But the vital task of environmental management is sadly not so highly valued as it should be. There are many more ordinary jobs that you could do in forestry, environmental monitoring, rivers and waterways, agriculture, forensic science, plant pathology, plant breeding, growing etc...

Some now famous names have got into botany and natural sciences from a round about way. They didn't start out as botanists but ended up being highly influential.
Think about Captain Jacques Cousteau the French Marine biologist, or Sir David Attenborough who was a central figure in presenting wild life on T.V. in the U.K.

You might start out wanting to do botany and growing (like I still do today) but end up being very successful doing something different. So remain open to opportunities and take them when they come along.

Recruitment - Toolbox for HR Groups

Organizations and companies often retain professional recruiters or outsource part of the title = "Selection - Toolbox for HR groups."> recruitment agencies. Outsourcing is attracting and selecting employees from outside the organization.

The recruitment industry has four main types of organizations:

  • In home recruitment.
  • Agencies,
  • On the use of search engines web sites
  • Head-Hunting " recruiting executives and professionals, and
  • Engineering offices of passive candidates supply companies

Process recruitment (RPO) is a form of Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) where the employer entrusts all or part of its recruitment activities to an outside body or vendor services.

RPO providers manage the entire recruitment process through job profiles in the sending of new contract. Good management improves both RPO leasing company, to improve the quality of the list of candidates, to provide verifiable measures, reduce cost and improve governmental compliance.

As a recruiter, which is used to obtain a large number of resumes and phone calls People wanting to come in. Many times they are not what I was looking for a recruiter and can not even count the number of unsolicited resumes received per week because there are many, especially the position most common. We must look experience, education, seniority and generally resume the slideshow. Time is money and you can not pass on people who do not meet the minimum criteria. Probably 75-80% of CV get a recruiter can not be used. Where the employer pays you to find what can be seen, you must send the produce of land, the better!

So first of a long period must pass to obtain a clear picture of what the company is looking? My candidate fit? What offer? Compensation is market standard? location? Skills - absolute and does not mean much. It is the largest and mature young team? View what kind of people tend to hire.

With the current scenario of market recession, when economic times are tough, we - recruiters - must adapt our approach. Layoffs, budget cuts and the candidates nervous change our landscape and force us to operate differently if we are to survive. So the best thing which is a recruitment companies should do when things get tough?

1. Show your value. W e must not only do our work, but to show our work, too. ie

• recruit the best talent

• consult with contracting teams to choose the best for the main pre-and post-interview question

• Reduce recruitment costs or improving performance investments with our current budget and provide real business value.

the acquisition of equipment and human resources can not show your return on investment for the company often the first cut in a recession.

2. The fight for their budgets. Must do everything possible to protect the image of the recruitment and budgets for education, because it can take years to build a brand as a good employer, but only a few months to kill.

3. Prioritize and Align. Not all requirements are created equal, so that the ratio of open requirements the recruiter will worsen in a recession, as your company's resources that can be cut. Make sure you meet regularly with management to understand the priorities between the positions of all growth and some height. Thus, alignment and focus on business priorities is always key, but it is particularly important in an economy below.

4. Set your location. Layoffs can lead to reduced mass candidates, but also very talented - The special technology more passive candidates - may be much less willing to consider a step in a falling market. Therefore, finding ways to be more attractive and differentiated from its competitors is the best. To demonstrate through the job and interview - the investment of your company makes or has made recently is a plus.

5. Make the most of your existing resources. Make sure you get the most of the labor exchange to send and access databases that are paying.

6. Make every car counts. Q uality is the key. Training in procurement type of talent in order to avoid costs long-term hiring of an error.

7. Train hiring managers to fish. To f ind ways to over management of its human resources to learn more about hiring "the project managers to discuss key priorities for recruitment, theemployee and talk about the referral program.

Times are hard and offer great potential for reducing leadership. Hoping you will enjoy this document to help you reflect on the advantages and disadvantages and you will not, as you look at the time.
