Chapter 3
"How Do You Know?"

Finding your element depends on having the opportunities to discover what you're really capable of. 


I received the following email from Pat Morgan of Affordable Colleges Online and have added her links to the page. 

Hi Dr. Lamberton,

I wanted to let you know about a couple updates we've made to our Volunteering & Internships Abroad guide. Maybe you've seen it already? When first published, the guide included tips on how to get into a volunteer or internship program overseas, information on how to fund the experience, and expert advice. Recently, the guide received some upgrades:

  • A program budgeting calculator (more dynamic than other cost calculators on the web)

  • Updated list of volunteer and internship programs

The students I work with have found the calculator in particular to be very useful. Check it out here: https://www.affordablecollegesonline.org/college-resource-center/volunteering-internships-abroad/

Volunteering or interning abroad can be an extraordinarily rewarding experience. It's a great way to spend a gap year or start building a resume. Based on what I found on your site (http://drjohnlamberton.com/cnfye3.htm), I thought your readers might find this updated guide interesting and useful. Would you be willing to include the link above as an additional resource on your page?

Thanks so much for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.

I received the following links from Cheri Shallenberger with CollegeDegreesOnline.com - Helping students research higher education and labor trends in the online higher education sectors.



This is Cheri's email to me: 

Good afternoon - I came across your site earlier while researching some some content that I was writing. You have some really great information and I wanted to ask your policies for linking to other sites as resources.

My name is Cheri Shallenberger with CollegeDegreesOnline.com - we focus extensively on helping students research higher education and labor trends in the online higher education sectors.

We recently updated our College Education Guides to help job seekers, professionals, and students understand the changing landscapes of these programs and their impact on careers and employment. You can view the guides here:
- https://www.collegedegreesonline.com/
- https://www.counselingdegreesonline.org/

Key updates to both websites include:
- A comprehensive look at the growth of online higher education programs at not-for-profit universities
- Tips for pursuing a graduate graduate degree program while working
- A list of the top educational programs calculated with the ROI against a student's degree

I noticed you list several excellent higher education resources on this page: http://www.drjohnlamberton.com/cnfye3.htm

Would providing a link to our websites from your page be possible? I really believe that your visitors will find them to be useful.

I'd love to know your thoughts on this. Thank you so much for your consideration and talk soon!

I received the following email from Blake Hughes of Million Mile Secrets and have added his link to the page. 

While researching internships abroad, I came across this page of your site: http://www.drjohnlamberton.com/cnfye3.htm

I thought you might also want to add a link to our guide on funding student travel programs like study abroad, internships, volunteering or research.

To help students take advantage of these study abroad programs, we created a guide that breaks down the different funding options, such as grants, scholarships, and personal funding tactics.

Here's a link to our guide: https://millionmilesecrets.com/guides/student-travel-programs-the-key-to-making-travel-abroad-affordable/

Would you consider adding this to your page mentioned above?
