Patricia Justice to Offer Free Seminar in Job Search Focus and Resume Writing

Marietta, GA (PRWEB) April 28, 2009

Patricia Justice will present a free workshop addressing two major roadblocks to finding new employment: getting a focus on your search and writing effective resumes. Responding to the current high unemployment rate and increasing difficulties of finding new employment, this free workshop will take place at 7 PM Thursday, April 30, at St. Catherine’s Episcopal Church, 571 Hold Road, Marietta, GA as part of their Career Ministry.

“The modern resume,” says Patricia Justice, “no longer exists as a list of job descriptions and previous employers. Nowadays an effective resume is a platform to showcase specific and quantifiable results. Writing this kind of resume is new to many people and can be downright terrifying. But it can be done and I want to help.”

Proper focus for a job search is paramount for a successful outcome. No employer wants to sift through all the things an applicant can or used to do. Consequently, job candidates need to focus on one goal and stick to it. Prospective employers want to know what, exactly, that person can do for them and that they do it better, or faster, or less expensively than the rest of the field.

Patricia is Founder & Principal of Justice HR Consulting, LLC, a professional services provider specializing in EEO Compliance and Training, HR Audits, Root Cause Analysis of employee issues and Employee On-boarding. Prior to establishing her own human resources services business she had a successful 25-year career in complex, multi-disciplinary, multi-faceted organizations and has successfully dealt with a wide variety of professional, technical, support, and administrative personnel from entry level to Boards of Directors.

Patients Beyond Borders



Chapel Hill, NC (Vocus) April 15, 2010

Patients Beyond Borders, the best-selling consumer reference guide for medical tourism, announces the release of FOCUS ON: Barbados Fertility Center. This 32-page, full-color, interactive digital publication and eBook is being released to coincide with National Infertility Awareness Week, April 21–May 1.

Barbados Fertility Center (BFC), located in Christ Church, Barbados, is an internationally renowned, JCI-accredited center of excellence, specializing in all aspects of infertility management. Its unique approach offers couples a stress-reduced, holiday-style experience with state-of-the-art IVF and related procedures that have resulted in high success rates for couples unable to conceive a child for a year or more.

Since opening its doors in 2002, the center has helped thousands of couples to realize their dreams of successfully conceiving a child, using the latest in assisted reproductive technologies. BFC’s international team of specialists has also developed a Healthy Mind and Body Program, which incorporates reflexology, acupuncture, massage therapy, and counseling into their successful and affordable treatment plans. This holistic approach, coupled with the island’s tranquil beaches and the center’s cutting-edge technologies, plays a big role in BFC’s enviable success rates.

Dr. Juliet Skinner, BFC’s medical director, who graduated from Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, and went on to specialize in obstetrics and gynecology, opened the clinic in her native Barbados in 2002. Realizing there were few options in the Caribbean region for couples experiencing infertility issues, she set out to develop a world-class IVF center specializing in state-of-the-art reproduction management in relaxed clinical and environmental surroundings.

“We provide the latest and best in assisted reproductive technologies, with an emphasis on physical, mental, and emotional balance,” says Skinner. “In addition to traditional services, we offer a number of procedures that many couples do not have access to in their home countries, such as vitrification (fast freezing of embryos and eggs) and preimplantation genetic screening (PGS).”

According to Resolve, the nonprofit National Infertility Association dedicated to promoting reproductive health and awareness of reproductive disorders, infertility affects as many as 7.3 million people in the U.S. alone. It is estimated that as many as 1 in 8 couples in America will suffer infertility issues, many of whom will seek medical assistance in the form of drug therapy or medical procedures such as IVF.

BFC is the only fully American-accredited fertility clinic in the Caribbean, and one of the few such clinics in the world. Its high standards of excellence, coupled with cost savings of 30–60% on comparable treatments in North America and Europe, have created a compelling option for thousands of couples.

“We were pleased to feature Barbados Fertility Center in our international edition of Patients Beyond Borders and are thrilled to see their story now addressed in the greater detail provided by our new FOCUS ON: series,” says Josef Woodman, CEO of Healthy Travel Media. “We hope to bring greater awareness of this truly remarkable facility to those seeking affordable, high-quality infertility treatments, coupled with a personal touch.”

Located in Christ Church, Barbados, the center also operates satellite offices in Trinidad, Antigua, and St. Maarten.

Helsinki Vacation Travel will Heat Up with Renewed Focus on Overseas Travel

Norwalk, CN (PRWEB) February 3, 2006

The upswing in the economy and a renewed emphasis on the quality of life has many Americans looking overseas for their next vacation. Though perennial favorites like London, Paris and Italy will see the biggest upswings in travelers, other destinations including Helsinki will see an increase in tourism.

Helsinki is a beautiful city that is ideal to tour on foot because of its compact layout. From Senate Square to Market Square, there are great sites, sounds and tastes for travelers of any age, style and taste.

Suomenlinna offers you the ability to tour one of the largest maritime fortresses in the world, built on six islands and full of museums, great restaurants, terrific cafes, many special events and things to do.

Helsinki is a great family vacation destination with the biggest attractions being: the Sea Life & Helsinki Zoo and the Linnanmaki Amusement Park. This amusement park adds a new attraction every year and has a legendary rollercoaster. One visit to the park and you will see why it is the highlight of every Finnish child’s summer vacation each year.

With great art museums, beautiful old churches and wonders around every corner, Helsinki is a great vacation destination. Virgin Vacations recently announced Helsinki vacation packages that start at 9 per person, depending on dates selected, occupancy and departure city (details can be found on Virgin Vacations’ website: www.virgin-vacations.com).

With the anticipated increase in travel across Europe and with Virgin Vacations announcement of great travel packages including Helsinki vacations, the travel industry will continue to heat up in these winter months.
