Hey School for Champions Editors,
I was doing some research on interview tips and noticed that you have this killer resource page on your site: . Awesome job!

Since you’re clearly an authority on the subject, I thought you’d be interested in checking out my article on "Best Interview Practices for Job Seekers". It’s super in-depth and I think it would make an awesome addition to your resource page (especially as your readers would love and benefit from it immensely).

Here’s the link if you’d like to check it out:

Computer Science vs Chemical Engineering

April 30, 2019


which of the two can i study to be employed easily: 1.bachelors in computer science. 2.bachelors in chemical engineering.

atuhaire - Uganda (29019)


There is a demand for college graduates in both areas of study. The most important thing to consider is which are are you most skilled and that you enjoy the type of work.

Note that Computer Science is often used along with Chemical Engineering, so studying both would be good.

It is good to check with companies in your area to see what they have to offer. In this way, you can tell the potential and wages for the type of job you select.

For example, check out:

Computer Programming jobs:

and Chemical Engineering jobs:

I hope that helps. Best wishes for success in your career.

Want a job with Google or Facebook

January 30, 2018


sir, i am a 11th class student from india .what should i do for becoming an software engineer at top it compneies like google and facebook.

yogesh - India (28410)


It is good to have a dream of becoming a software engineer with companies such as Google and Facebook.

You can get information from Google Jobs and Facebook Careers.

However, it is best to start near home, perhaps getting an apprenticeship with an IT company in your community. You really need some good experience before getting hired with a major company.

Best wishes for success in achieving your goals. I am sure you will do well.

Greetings from EducatorLabs!

I’m Kathleen, and I work part-time with the EducatorLabs team to research and share useful resources with information-seeking individuals.

Today, my sights are set on jobs… Why, you ask? Well, with 2016 approaching, most of us will make resolutions and seek a fresh start and, for many, this involve a job search.

To assist those looking for help, I spent some time putting together a list of resources, which I wanted to share with you because I thought your site visitors would find them useful.

It’s my goal to encourage 50 people to share these resources in an effort to help others find their dreams in 2016. Let me know if you’re one of the 50 who has decided to stand up and help!

Thank you - and Happy 2016!

Suggested career resource

October 23, 2015



I’d like to make a suggestion to improve this page of your website -

Many of us find ourselves working in an industry or vocation that just doesn’t provide job satisfaction and we might consider a career change; at this point we ask ourselves which job are we most suited to.

That’s where a personality test can be helpful and I’d like to draw your attention to this free one -

To give you some context, ImprovEDU is a volunteer-run organization focused on highlighting noteworthy educational resources. I’m getting in touch with you today because you’ve shared similar information in the past and I feel the above would be of benefit to your visitors, if you’d prefer not to hear from me again please let me know and I will ensure you receive no further emails from our organization.

Thanking you in advance for your time and consideration.

Kind regards

Joel - USA (26472)


Thanks for the suggest link. I added it to the Career Resources page.

Let me know when your website is up, and I'll add a link to it from our Education Resources page.

Apparent bogus company listed

May 19, 2015


Dear Website Manager,

I recently used your site during my job search, and I wanted to draw your attention to a website called, which your page links to. When I visited the About Us section of ( to make sure the website was legitimate, a simple Google search revealed that their cached site seems to be using other people's identities to appear more credible and authentic.

The picture of the supposed director David Brooklingdale originally came from the profile of a Professor Michael Minkenberg (, and the one of site student liaison Debera Turner-Bryant is actually a teacher named Alessandra Pogianni (
As it turns out, the pictures of the other two team members were also taken from other sources. The picture of assistant director Julie Anderson can be found at the bottom of the page at, where it appears she is actually some kind of researcher, and the picture of technical supervisor Michael Moran is really an image of a student named Francesco Romano, seen here:
With so many scams out there for job seekers to worry about, I hope you will take appropriate action over your endorsement of this clearly fraudulent website.

Thanks for your time.

H - USA (26010)


The Job Application Guide website certainly looks legit, and it seems to have some good information for job seekers. However, the use of other people's pictures certainly is troubling. Why would they do that, unless their people are extremely ugly?

I see that they removed the pictures on May 14, 2015.

Anyways, I deleted the item from the Career Resources page.

Thanks for your diligent research concerning this company.

Classes to take for career in medicine

March 1, 2015


am current doings maths and sciences but my problem is that I don't know what to study next year because this year am doing grade 12 am interested in doing medicine but I haven't got all the information that I need about it please help me

lb - South Africa (25802)


Two important subjects in medicine are Biology and Chemistry. But of course, you need to graduate from college for a medical degree.

Start looking for a college to attend after you graduate from high school, and see what requirements they have. Also, if you can, ask a doctor or nurse what they suggest for their profession. They can often give you good advice.

Best wishes for success in your medical career.

Seeking chemistry carrer in Tanzania

October 23, 2014



Roda - Tanzania (25473)


While you are studying Chemistry, it is worthwhile to investigate companies doing chemistry work and chemistry jobs available in Tanzania.

Some companies will hire students as interns during the summer months. That is a good way to gain possible employment when you finish school.

The chemistry department in your school should have a listing of such companies. Also, your can check the want ads to see what companies in your area are looking for.

The website Chemist Jobs in Tanzania has only a few listings, but it can give you ideas. Also see Chemist Grade II Jobs in Tanzania for government openings.

Also see MyWage - Tanzania for some information.

I hope this helps you get a start on your career. Best wishes for good grades in school.
