Management and Chemical Engineering Essay I have completed my Bachelors of Technology in Chemical Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati, India (IITG). I am seeking a position in your organization in order to enhance my skills and practical experience, while being resourceful and innovative. I have worked hard in my undergraduate studies, striking a balance between compulsory courses like Fluid Mechanics, Process Equipment Design, Process Control and Instrumentation, Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics, related wet lab courses and supervised research under the guidance of Dr Chandan Das (Associate Professor, Department of Chemical Engineering, IITG) Dr AK Golder (Associate Professor, Department of Chemical Engineering, IITG). My Bachelor Thesis Project was on Biosorption of heavy metals to purify industrial effluents under the guidance of Dr. Chandan Das (Associate Professor, Dept. of Chemical Eng., IITG) and Dr. AK Golder (Associate Professor, Dept. of Chemical Engineering, IITG). When I look back now, I realize the role of an inspiring mentor in a studentÃ¢â¬â¢s life. Dr. Das and Dr. Gloder gave me a whole new direction to explore my research skills and the interest in reading research articles while doing my undergraduate courses in mainstream Chemical Engineering. After graduation I joined Jindal Steel and Power Ltd as a Project Engineer where I practiced what I learnt during my educational life. Post completion of one year, I joined SPI Pvt. Ltd. As an Assistant Manager. I choose this as apart from technical skills, I also wanted to gain a good understanding about the business processes and its various elements. While working there my interest became more focused towards managerial skills. It was there where I decided to go for my higher education in Masters in Management as managerial knowledge via a reputed and esteemed university will help me to learn a wider scope of business management skills which was missing in my technical career. In my education thus far, I have been actively involved in sports and co-curricular activities including making manual robot, organized Rock-o-Phonix for three consecutive years (2008, 2009 2010) and represented IIT-Guwahati in Inter IIT sports meet in Football which has helped me to develop upon simplicity in approach, patience, team work, confidence, loyalty, ability to manage loads of stress and adaptability. To work using the in-hand knowledge and indigenous creativity simultaneously is my biggest asset. Education I believe is not just excelling in courses that we take and cracking their exams but a continuous process of development and self-realization. Not just asking Ã¢â¬Å"what to doÃ¢â¬ or Ã¢â¬Å"how to doÃ¢â¬ but Ã¢â¬Å"who am iÃ¢â¬ and Ã¢â¬Å"what is my purposeÃ¢â¬ too. My long term career goals are to become socially responsible individual and to get the dream job of working in the field of interest. If given the opportunity of pursuing the graduate study in field of management I would be getting involved in a project that will help me grow intellectually and professionally and result in useful outcomes.

Grants, New Mexico Surrounded by mountains and located in Cibola County, Grants, New Mexico is the perfect place to unpack the camping gear or raise a family. Grants was named after 3 brothers: Angus, Lewis, and John Grant, who were contracted to build a railroad through this portion of New Mexico. First called Ã¢â¬Å"GrantÃ¢â¬â¢s CampÃ¢â¬ , then Ã¢â¬Å"GrantÃ¢â¬â¢s StationÃ¢â¬ (which is now a local restaurant); it finally became known simply as Ã¢â¬Å"GrantsÃ¢â¬ . The heart of American Indian country, Grants is about 70 miles west of Albuquerque and 80 miles east of the New Mexico/Arizona border. As of July 2002, Grants had a population of 8,921 residents and growing. Once a small farming community until 1950 when a Navajo rancher discovered uranium on Haystack Mountain, this town has now become a growing tourist destination. For those like me who enjoy mild and dry weather, Grants is perfect. While I enjoy snow, especially around Christmas, it is a real treat to enjoy the beauty of snow one day and then throw on shorts and a tee-shirt the next day. The average summer high and low is 80/50. The average winter high and low is 40/10. During the winter months, it is not uncommon to see one group of people playing a round of golf at the Coyote del Malpais Golf Course located at the foot of Mt. Taylor, while another group are surrounded by snow high on the mountain itself. One of the first things you will notice in Grants is the majestic mountains. Rising 11, 3001 feet, Mt. Taylor displays scattered rows of gorgeous Ponderosa Pine trees. Blazing a trail through these Pines one can find beautiful nature trails, delightful picnic spots, and scenic vistas which make you feel as if you have stepped right into a mythical painting. I have spent many a day loosing myself in nature in those mountains only to find myself going back the next day for another area to explore. Mt. Taylor stays occupied all year round with hikers, bike riders, skiers, and those inclined towards snowshoeing. One of the biggest events that Mt. Taylor boasts is the Mt. Taylor Winter Quadrathlon. Occurring annually on the Saturday of PresidentÃ¢â¬â¢s Day Weekend, this event includes a 43 Kilometer bike ride, a 3.5 Kilometer snowshoe trek, an 8 Kilometer cross-country skiing leg, and a 17.5 Kilometer run. While the mountains may be beautiful and innocent during the day, they take on a whole other personality during the evening.

Becoming Mexican American: Ethnicity, Culture, and Identity in Chicano Los Angeles, 1900-1945 The immigration story of the United States includes groups of individuals from many different countries, one such group was that of the U.S.Ã¢â¬â¢s southern neighbor Mexico. In the book, Becoming Mexican American: Ethnicity, Culture, and Identity in Chicano Los Angeles, 1900-1945, George J. SÃ ¡nchez writes about the Mexican immigrantsÃ¢â¬â¢ experience migrating to California and settling there, particularly in the Los Angeles area. SÃ ¡nchez argues that many Mexican immigrants felt Ã¢â¬Å"betwixt and betweenÃ¢â¬ their homeland and the United States, and his book examines the forces pulling them in both directions. On the one side, Americans wanted the Mexicans in theÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦(pg. 99) American public schools were another way to try and Americanize the Mexican Immigrants. In 1915 California passed the Home Teacher Act which allowed teachers to go into the homes of immigrants and to teach adults and children such things as the English language. Which ess entially was as SÃ ¡nchez puts it, Ã¢â¬Å"the most potent weapon used to imbue the foreigner with American valuesÃ¢â¬ . (pg. 100) Later the Home Teacher Act would be integrated into public schools after WWI. There were also other things besides American progressives that were shaping the Mexican immigrants identity in America, and these included new religions and pop culture/consumerism. A vast majority of the MexicanÃ¢â¬â¢s migrating to the U.S. were Catholic. However, very few Catholic priests from Mexico migrated to the United States, so the Mexican Immigrants were going to churches that were led by Irish priests, and as SÃ ¡nchez puts it, Irish American priests were rarely found to be sensitive enough to the needs of a working class people from a different culture. (pg. 165) This gave other religions an opening to convert the Mexican immigrants to their religion.
