INTRODUCTION

For this assignment, I decided to examine two full-time positions at Accounting Principals and Hurricane Electric. I will also, investigate three graduate programs, including Tulane, Loyola, and LSU.

OPTION #1: ACCOUNTING PRINCIPALS
http://www.accountingprincipals.com/index.html

One position available is for a Brokerage Sales Assistant. The job duties include interfacing with clients, supporting Financial Consultants with daily operations (processing transactions, answering questions, providing follow-up with clients and operations staff, etc.), customer service and general administrative duties. They are seeking the following qualifications: candidates who possess strong customer service skills, excellent verbal and written communication skills, a high energy level, a minimum of a high school degree or equivalent, proficiency in MS Word and brokerage industry experience a plus. Specifically, they are seeking candidates who can work in a fast paced, teamwork-oriented office, and who are detail oriented and dynamic. Compensation depends on experience, but includes base salary and quarterly bonuses that are determined by the individual Financial Consultants.

OPTION #2: HURRICANE ELECTRIC

A position for an Accounts Payable/Accounts Receivable is available at Hurricane Electric's Fremont facility. They are seeking an individual who is detailed oriented and organized. They are seeking an applicant who has experience with Accounts Payable/Accounts receivable and who possesses excellent verbal and written communication skills. The applicant must be computer literate and must have knowledge of MS Excel and Quick books. The applicant must be familiar with the Internet and E-mail. Duties include replying to billing/accounting inquires via e-mail and phone. Individual will handle collections on past due accounts, will review and process invoices, and will prepare invoice payments and reply to vendor inquiries.

OPTION #3: TULANE UNIVERSITY

Tulane's Law School is a highly esteemed, prominent university with an extremely selective admission department. On average, three thousand applications are submitted each year for approximately three hundred and fifteen prospective spaces. Tulane's application process is structured on a rolling admission, and notification of the admission decision is announced upon consensus. As a general practice, those students who possess an interest in receiving merit scholarships and other financial aid are encouraged to submit their applications in advance. This is due to the fact that once the school's funds are exhausted, no resources will remain to award to those who delayed in submitting their application. The requirements to apply to this university include a fifty dollar non-refundable fee, a completed and signed application form with a personal statement, and receipt of the LSDAS report and final transcripts. Although letters of recommendation are not sought, they are encouraged if they provide insight into a student's academic ability or work performance.

Once a student has selected to attend Tulane, his first-year law curriculum will consist of courses including Torts, Criminal law, Civil procedure, Contracts, Constitutional law, Property, Legal Research and Writing, and one elective course. However, once the above classes have successfully been completed, the remainder of the law school curriculum is comprised strictly of elective courses. "J.D. candidates are permitted to design their own programs of study so as to attain in-depth exposure to a particular area of law if they so desire or elect to follow a general program by sampling many fields." However, for graduation, it is mandated that a student fulfill the twenty hour community service requirement and delegate these hours toward a pro bono case under the supervision of an attorney.

The cost to attend Tulane's Law School is approximately twenty-six thousand eight hundred and eighty-five dollars with budgeted miscellaneous costs such as housing, transportation, and books totaling twelve thousand two hundred and ninety-five dollars. Unfortunately, for the year 2003, tuition is expected to experience an increase and rise to twenty-eight thousand three hundred and ten dollars. However, Tulane is able to offer several scholarships and tuition waivers based primarily on the information contained in the admission file. Furthermore, as long as eligibility requirements are still adhered to, scholarships made to entering freshmen are generally renewed for their remaining semesters.

Considering the expensive nature of attending law school, it is common for students in their second or third years of school to work part-time for local attorneys or law firms, or they may be eligible to receive credit for externships with federal and state judges in New Orleans. Also, during the third year of school, students are provided with the prospect of working on actual cases through the Clinics or the trial advocacy program. Also, Tulane has a Career Development Office that works intimately with students on job-search strategies and interviewing skills. This service arranges seminars and workshops on areas of employment and hosts campus interview programs. Tulane "staff engages in extensive employer outreach activities, promoting Tulane Law School students and graduates nationally."

OPTION #4: LOYOLA UNIVERSITY

Loyola University's law program is highly qualified and holds specialization in areas of international law, public interest law, corporate law, tax law, and admiralty. Admission decisions are operated under a rolling admissions policy under which a decision will be made upon receipt of the application. An application file consists of a completed and signed application form, a forty dollar non-refundable application fee, an LSDAS report, and an LSAT score. Loyola University does not mandate any additional attachments to accompany this application; however, it is suggested that a personal statement, resume, or letter of recommendation be included if they provide valuable information about the applicant. It is in the best interest of the student to tender the application early in order to enhance the possibility of being awarded a scholarship. Furthermore, once a student has been granted a scholarship, it will automatically be renewed if he/she maintains a grade point average equal to or above the top third of the class. As a general reference, in order to be granted admission, it is necessary for the applicant's LSAT score to be not less than a 151 and an undergraduate grade point average of a 3.1.

The requirements for the degree of juris doctor at Loyola are ninety credit hours attained over a course of at least three years. Loyola is the only law school in the country that offers two programs which lead to a juris doctor degree either in the tradition of civil law for Louisiana students or in the common law for those who desire to practice out of state. The curricula spans over six semesters of resident study with a minimum requirement of ten hours per semester composed of both required and elective courses.

Tuition for Loyola is nearly twenty-three thousand six hundred and eighty-four dollars per year and is expected to increase in the forthcoming years. As a result of the inherent financial complications of attending law school, Loyola offers scholarships, loans, and employment opportunities for its students in order to aid in deterring this economic barrier. Scholarships are awarded to outstanding first-year students who excel academically with no future repayment obligation whereas loans are issued with the confirmed agreement of future repayment. Furthermore, the two job programs that Loyola offers are the federally funded work-study program and the university-funded student assistantships. In the federally funded program students are selected for work based solely upon need, but in the university program need is not always the deciding factor.

Furthermore, Loyola University has a wide array of options available to students to strengthen and promote their skills in order to enhance their future employment opportunities. For example, as a third year law student, Loyola offers law clinics which combines seminars and trial experience in order for the students to gain practical experience in both the criminal and civil field of law. Also, the clinical externship and Moot Court are other options students might pursue to strengthen and enhance their skills and competence upon initiating their future practice of law. Considering the foregoing, it is not surprising that the national employment rate for the Class of 2000 was one hundred percent within six months.

OPTION #5: LSU

Louisiana State University began on January 2, 1860 as the Seminary of Learning of the State of Louisiana near Pineville. The school closed one and a half years later due to the Civil War. It reopened in 1865, but burned down four years later. In 1869, the Seminary resumed its operations in Baton Rouge, LA. A year later, the institution became known as Louisiana State University.

Louisiana State University's MBA program is highly ranked, due to nationally competitive departments. For example, the Center for Internal Auditing is ranked #1. "LSU students have earned the highest score in the world on the Certified Internal Audit exam ten times in the last twelve years." Students pursuing an MBA at Louisiana State University are diverse and top-ranking among the student body.

The Flore MBA Admissions Board selects well-rounded students with great professional potential. Because selection is highly competitive, the minimum admission requirements are as follows: "a bachelor's degree from an accredited U.S. institution or the equivalent from a foreign institution, a minimum grade point average of 3.00 (on a 4.00 scale) on all undergraduate work completed and graduate attempted, an acceptable score on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), and acceptance by the Flores MBA Committee Admissions Board."

Requirements in the application process include a completed and signed application form, a nonrefundable $25 application fee, transcripts from any university attended, GMAT scores sent directly to the Office of Admissions, a current one page resume, an essay, and two letters of recommendation.

Employment Opportunities
The cost to attend graduate school is approximately the same as undergraduate costs. Tuition and fees for a full-time student for the academic year are $3,465. Other costs such as housing, food, medical, transportation, books, and miscellaneous expenses average $13,000 a year.

Because of these expenses, over 80% of MBA students receive financial aid. The most popular way to obtain financial aid is through assistantships. Assistantships require 10-20 work hours each week. Depending on what type of assistantship the graduate holds, duties may include preparing exams, grading papers, tutoring, conducting lectures, etc. The current salary for a graduate assistant is $5,400 for the academic year. Even though assistantships are the most popular forms of financial aid, fellowships, scholarships, and awards are also available. Students are encouraged to visit their academic department and also check the internet for more information.

CONCLUSION
Based on the information I've gathered, I find the position at ACCOUNTIN PRINCIPLAS the most apealing. I feel this way for two distinct reasons. Firstly, after examining Accounting Principals' web page, I realized that they were a much larger company. This is important to me because I feel that larger companies (for the most part) are more stable. Secondly, I find Accounting Principals more attractive than Hurricane Electric because it is an accounting firm. Hurricane Electric, on the other hand, is an Internet Service Provider. I would rather be employed by a company whose primary focus is accounting rather than by a company whose focus is the Internet.
