My career goals are not very clear at the moment but I would like to Graduate from Morgan State University with at least a 3.5 grade point average thus giving me more options in what I would like to do as far as my schooling. I would like to go to Graduate School, if the cost of it is waived or I can find a "tuition free" program. That is another reason I want a reasonably high grade point average from undergraduate studies. I have a couple of options that just recently opened; I was offered a full time position at Morgan State University Library upon receiving my Undergraduate degree. With me accepting this opportunity I would be considered a State employee and a Morgan State University employee as well which would put me in the category for a tuition waiver. Thus virtually going to graduate school for "free"; this is the path I would like to take but sometimes life takes it own turns and perhaps it was not meant to be. If I accept the position and am able to get the tuition waiver, I will attend Morgan State University's Graduate Program and receive my Masters Degree in Business Administration or Media Management, finishing up no later than December 2012. During the  last semester in my studies I will start searching for careers in areas I could see myself living; Colorado, Dallas, Atlanta, and Florida are my main choices in that order. I would ultimately like to be employed by the federal government in an agency such as Department of Housing and Urban Development or Small business Administration just to name a few.  If I do not receive the job at Morgan State University; I will return to Colorado and earn certification in something of interest until I find a stable full time position I can call a career.

Objective

 To obtain an entry level job in a well known Media company that could lead to a potential management position in the future while acquiring my Masters Degree in Media Management.
