Turning Dreams Into Reality

On Friday Matthew Reynders of Time Inc. spoke about what he does and how he got to where he is today. He spoke about attending college at Wake Forest, life after graduation, and the many different types of jobs he got himself into. Matthew’s main points of his speech were to always keep asking questions, network, think of goals as checkpoints, and to take a risk.

After college he had two or three jobs he held in which he knew nothing about or how to act when he got there. It forced himself to ask questions to the people around him to learn his new task. He said asking questions is vital because it shows you are hard working and you actually want to learn about the job. Matthew kept hitting on the point of networking with those in the industry. Networking is important because it gets your name out there and for people to know who you are. Matthew talked about how he networked to get to know people and to see what other opportunities were available. He quickly stressed that when creating goals, not to see them as destinations but as checkpoints. He said that if they are checkpoints you will continue to want to move on to your next one instead of achieving one and not know what to do after that. The thing he found key was the importance of a mentor. His many mentors helped to guide him and taught him along the way. When Matthew was given the chance to transfer from North Carolina to New York he considered the risks and decided to go for it because of the possibility to advance his career. He stated that in order to get to where you wanna go, there is some risks you must take.

Overall I enjoyed the presentation. I thought Mathew was funny at times and I found the information and tips he gave would be very useful in my job search after graduation.

The young girl about to get married is receiving the message. The message is that the mercenary and her mother both know she was the theif and that she is also accused of being a murderer and will be caught soon enough.

Should MNCs protect shareholder value by restricting the placement of female employees in certain foreign countries?

I think that it is impossible for you to change someone’s culture when dealing overseas. If placing a female employee in the workplace is against their culture/beliefs and they find it offensive then doing so may make or break any deal that you are trying to work out. Many countries, in our eyes, are sexist towards women. But that is in their heritage that has been taught to them from generation to generation. It may look bad to us but to them it may be the norm.
