How to Talk Your Way to a Higher Grade (When You Think You Deserve One) When we know the quality of our work on an assignment was not our best, we usually expect the grade to be lower than normal. But what if our grade doesn’t accurately reflect what we think we deserve? Maybe we thought our essay was right on point, but we got a D. Or maybe we thought we explained our answers clearly on the midterm exam, but the professor had other thoughts. There are ways to deal with these situations other than venting on the phone to our parents or marching straight to your advisor’s office to report the teacher for unfair grading practices. Situation #1: “I think I should have gotten more points on this test than my final score indicates.” Situation #2: “I bombed the midterm.

The BEST Cover Letter Ever: How To Write It and Write It RIGHT Now that you know how to write that ever-so-perfect resume, it’s time to WOW potential employers with a cover letter that leaves them in awe of your skills, and gives you what you’re looking for — an interview, and hopefully a job! Step 1: FIGURE OUT THE EMPLOYEE’S NAME and contact information. When composing a cover letter, knowing the name of the employee to send your letter to, her position in the company, and the address of the company is crucial. An easy reason for someone to toss your application in the trash is spelling his or her name wrong. Put all this information on your cover letter — it may seem tedious but it’s professional and it gives an immediate indication that this isn’t a mass produced cover letter. “If you can get someone’s title that’s very important,” explains Beth Conyngham, President of Conyngham Partners, an executive search firm.

Kenyatta University to create entrepreneurs, not jobseekers A student at the Kenyatta University. CC image courtesy of Swathi Sridharan. Kenyatta University (KU) has launched its Innovation and Incubation Centre, aiming to give Kenyans an opportunity to transform their dreams into business enterprises. The university’s plan is to nurture innovative ideas among ordinary citizens where 30 per cent of the intake will be dedicated to them, while 70 per cent will benefit students at Kenyatta University. Speaking during the launch, the university’s vice-chancellor Olive Mugenda said the centre will be a major shift as it will be focusing on preparing graduates to take up roles in entrepreneurship rather than job seekers. “The exposure available at the centre gives incubatees a reality check which prevents them from making the most basic mistakes and also ensures there are chances of survival as entrepreneurs grow significantly,” Mugenda said. “Universities today should be at the forefront of bringing up job creators and not jobseekers.”
