    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    I like to teach students, especially adult students, who are changing or making an addition to their career or job status.

    Cons

    Teaching availability often depends upon student applications and enrollment to be gainfully employed full time.

    Advice to Management

    Build class offerings around current community and industry needs and take advantage of oversights and shortcomings of current employers and human resource departments. Fill in the employment gaps as well as the career blanks. Sincerely, Milton Mario Barbee 646-306-5712
