“Seeking inspiration...”


Description from J Yee smart chick: I'm finishing up my last year of grad school and seeking an organization to do my final project with. I've talked with two organizations this fall that turned out to not be a good match for what I'm seeking in a project.
So I've put the word out to several folks in the area who have good networks and will be talking with a couple of people next week about possible organizations to connect with.
Getting a good match is important for us to have a good learning experience that also benefits an organization and lets us apply some of the learnings from our program of study.

    Nicole, I got one at 2:35 PM. Do you want me to send it to you?

    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    Hmmm I think this has happened before (but then they send it to me the next day or something)!!!! That would be great but mom and dad are so particular about me sharing contact info (probably one of the reasons they won’t let me get a facebook). Thanks though (trust me…when I’m 18 I’m going to want to meet some of you Chickies…hopefully I’ll be driving then too ;) !!!!!!) 8)

    Thank you chickies for all the good wishes!
    Valentine chick, I have been studying Organizational Psychology, a mysterious name for folks who work with organizations to address everything from an organization’s mission/vision/values, to the environment it functions in, to organizational culture, to its structure. We work a lot with group and organizational dynamics, and I really enjoy the possibilities the field offers. So for instance LB the bead company has a terrific org culture – very young, energetic, friendly and creative, much easier to do with a young and small company! 8O 8) :D

    Nicole, my sympathies to you about sometimes not getting the weekly LB e-mail about new beads, :(
    and I sure hope you’ll meet us before you turn 18, esp if LB has that Chickies get together this coming year – oh please let our gathering be in the SUMMER TIME after I have graduated!!! 8O 8)

    I agree Sali Jo. You are a smart chick J Yee!! Best wishes on finding the perfect organization!!

    J Yee smart chick says:

    Mary S and Nicole, I would be puzzled too, if I didn’t promply get the usual e-mail notification by LB of their weekly additions and restocks, I didn’t even have time to look over the restocks yet today…

    Thank you for all the good wishes, I’m meeting with two people next week who I hope can provide some ideas for organizations that I can connect with about doing a project, will let you all know when I do get one figured out !!! ;)

    Does your university have an Extension program?

  16. J Yee smart chick
    J Yee smart chick says:

    Atomic Toad, as far as I know, we don’t have an Extension program, are you looking for one? Antioch University has several campuses in different states, and our programs do offer nontraditional schedules so that people can attend from fairly long distances – people in my department and program meet in person once a month, with lots of group and online work in between our classes.

  17. Atomic Toad
    Atomic Toad says:

    No, but thank you! I was just thinking of an organization you might hook up with.

  18. J Yee smart chick
    J Yee smart chick says:

    Atomic Toad, what organization is it? Does it have offices in Seattle? Thank you for thinking about my dilemma, sure appreciate it! :)

    Deb D Grammy Chick says:

    Glad you are looking for inspiration because it led to a gorgeous pick! I love the colors, the stones with the pearls and shell, everything about it!
    I’m so happy for you and proud of you, Joyce…you are so very smart and talented! I just know that you will find the right organization to work with, and the path to follow that is perfect for you! And of course, you have all of us Chicks here in the backround supporting you at every step, so it has to turn out just the way you want it to!!! :D

    Hey Deb,

    Thank you so much for your kind wishes, sure do appreciate it! Since I last wrote here, I’ve scheduled to meet with several people this week, 4 so far. I had a great meeting this morning with one of my instructors and she is introducing me to a small organization in Seattle that does great work with the Vietnamese community

    There’s two possible organizations that I’ll be meeting with alumni of my department with
    and also I’m meeting with a community friend who has fabulous networks… all of my experiences this quarter have taught me a lot about really asking good initial questions and looking for a good fit between both myself and the organization that would sponsor a project! 8O 8)
