Essay Topics:

 

Topic 1 – Financial Statements & Business Models

 

Understanding how to view and analyze a financial statement is one of the most fundamental skills necessary to succeed in business.

 

In 600 words, please tell us about a past business you have worked for and which financial statement you think is the most important to their business and why. 

 

Feel free to refer to our Introduction to Financial Statement Analysis modules if you need to learn more or brush up on your financial statement basics.

 

Topic 2 – Should You Sue Your Customer?

 

Customers are the lifeblood of every business. We work day after day to find, attract, and retain our customers.

 

But what happens when the customer does not pay and you get stiffed with the bill?

 

As a B2B collection agency, The Kaplan Group sees these situations daily. Unfortunately, the alter­na­tive of going to court needs to be considered in many of the claims placed with our collection agency. Often times these neglected invoices can be collected without relying on the legal process, but unfortunately some of our clients eventually face the decision of whether or not to sue a customer that is long past due on payments.

 

To address this type of situation, we created a flowchart that answers the question: “Should you sue your customer?”

 

Please review the flowchart and write 600 words telling us each of the following:

 

One situation where you SHOULD sue your customer.

 

One situation where you SHOULD NOT sue your customer.

 

In each scenario, explain what major factors you considered when determining whether or not to pursue a lawsuit.  Be creative – simply repeating what is in the flowchart will not result in a winning essay.

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), coercion occurs when a motor carrier, shipper, receiver, or transportation intermediary threatens to withhold work from, take employment action against, or punish a driver for refusing to operate in violation of hours-of-service and other safety regulations including certain provisions of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs), Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMRs) and the Federal Motor Carrier Commercial Regulations (FMCCRs).  An example of coercion occurs when a motor carrier terminates a driver for refusing to accept a load that would require the driver to violate the hours of service (HOS) requirements.

 

 

 

To address the problem of coercion, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration adopted the Prohibiting Coercion of Commercial Motor Vehicle Drivers, known as the Coercion Rule which took effect on January 29, 2016.  The Rule allows drivers to report incidents of coercion to the FMCSA and authorizes the administration to issue penalties against motor carriers, shippers, receivers, or transportation intermediaries.

 

 

 

Does economic pressure in the motor carrier industry affect commercial drivers in such a way that it creates a negative impact on safety?  Why or why not?  Will the Coercion Rule have a greater impact on the economic side of the commercial trucking industry or safety?  Describe your answer.

 

Details on the application process are as follows:

 

  • Essays must be responsive to the question posed above
  • Applications should be emailed to: bolingricelaw@gmail.com

Amount:

$1000

Description:

We at the Beyond Wellness Chiropractic Center are very excited to be offering an educational scholarship opportunity for your current and future students. We have launched the Spread the Word on Safety Scholarship that will be awarded once every year. As a Chiropractic office, we have witnessed the repercussions of car accidents that occur on a daily basis.  Unfortunately, the majority of car accidents occur more often in college students.   In a staggering study by NHTSA, drivers in their 20s make up 27 percent of the distracted drivers in fatal crashes. Though college students aren’t’ the only ones involved in car accidents, we find it’s important to Spread the Word on Safety and hopefully inspire them to make the right choices when getting behind the wheel.

The scholarship will be awarded to one dedicated student, either current or graduating high school senior, with acceptance to an accredited school or currently enrolled in an undergraduate college degree.  At Beyond Wellness Chiropractic Center, P.C., we value the importance of safety and the prevention of auto injury.  We feel that sponsoring a $1000 scholarship is a great way to help assist with the tuition and expenses, and to help give back to the community.

We would also like to put the scholarship in your control of the qualifying candidates. That is why selection of the winner will be judged not on the subjective opinions of a small panel but on the impact that your message connects with people and enriches their lives. Once the student’s application and essay is submitted, within 24-48 hours, their message will go live on our site and their essay link will arrive by email for them to share socially. Candidates whose essay reaches the highest amount of social shares will be selected as the winner; so start spreading the word on safety as soon as possible. 

Applicant Essay Topics:

The effects of driving while intoxicated, tired or hung-over.

The costs of a DWI and DUI on your finances and your future success.
