Whether it’s your first day of career training or the first day of a new job, it’s helpful to know how to keep your email inbox organized. As the world becomes more digital, knowing how to keep your inbox clean will become even more important. Here are five tips on how to manage your email inbox:
1. Create folders. Sort the messages in your inbox by date, subject matter or importance.
2. Respond to critical messages immediately.
3. Delete messages you don’t need.
4. Set aside time at the end of the week to clean out any clutter that might’ve slipped by during a busy week.
5. Don’t wait until your inbox is out of control. Develop good habits and keep your inbox in check all the time.
1. Know the best time of day for you to study. Some people function better in the mornings, some better at night. Experiment and find the time you’re most alert.
2. Schedule study time in your calendar. Set aside specific time in your schedule and make it a habit.
3. Don’t cram. As a busy student, it may be tempting to put studying off until the last minute. It’s more effective to study a little over a long period of time than to cram a lot into a short period of time.
4. Make flashcards so you can study on the go!
5. Ask your friends for their study tips. They’re probably busy too so find out how they personally manage and see if it works for you, too.
- Make a list. At the beginning of the day, write down everything that you have to do. Then start categorizing them by urgency.
- Assess the value. Weigh the benefits of completing a task first versus the possible consequences of completing it later. This can help you order your priorities.
- Be honest. Know your limitations and don’t make promises you can’t keep. You don’t want to set yourself up for failure.
- Be flexible. As you get more work, your priorities will shift. It is helpful to adjust to these changes.
- Cut the cord. There comes a point where you just need to finish a task and move on. The perfectionist in you may want to keep fine-tuning that last task, but it’s better for productivity to cut the cord and move on.
- Be careful with your credit card. On one hand, it’s good to start building credit history. On the other hand, credit spending can quickly spiral out of control.
- Create a budget and stick to it. Find out how much you make and then how much you spend per month. Of your spending, figure out what is necessary and what is luxury (Sorry, no matter how you spin it, beer is not a necessity).
- Save early and often. Even if you put just a little away at a time, it can help you out a lot down the road.
- Borrow as little as possible. In addition to loans, there are many scholarships and grants available to all types of students. If you do have to borrow, make sure you understand all costs and terms before agreeing to anything.
- Use coupons. Sites like Groupon offer great deals that can save you money.
- Use technology to your advantage. You can get alerts for credit cards, bank accounts and other payments to help stay on top of it. This way, you can avoid unnecessary late fees.
As an intern with the department, you’ll be scheduled time with each division of the agency to see how they work on a day-to-day basis. You’d get to shadow offers, detectives, and other staff, ride with patrol, participate in investigations when possible, and even learn the appropriate use of weapons.
Most important, you’d get an exciting, firsthand look into the inner workings of a real, functioning police department. In fact, their current intern, Jason Cole, is a hearing-impaired student pursuing a Criminal Justice degree in South Orlando at Everest University whose dream is to enter law enforcement.
If an internship isn’t right for you, consider volunteering with the department. It’s a fantastic way to find a rewarding experience and to serve your community.
Volunteer and intern positions are available for those who complete a simple application process. Applications are obtained by contacting Officer Randall Morrissey at either 407-599-3562 or by emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Just because they’re online, doesn’t mean they’re easy. Studying for online classes takes self-discipline and good habits. Here are five great study tips to help you be successful in online courses.
- Study smart. Study in small blocks of time in an area free of distractions. And never study in front of the TV.
- Get organized. Set a study schedule and stick to it. And keep all your materials and notes organized and tidy.
- Read effectively. Read things once through quickly and then again more slowly. This helps your brain break the information into smaller bites.
- Don’t study in bed. Or on the couch for that matter. Study at a desk or the kitchen table when you’re wide awake. You’ll learn better and won’t fall asleep.
- Write notes by hand. Actually writing things out helps you remember them better than copying and pasting or even typing. It’s more interactive and helps you think about the information.
With a little planning and work, online classes can be a great way for busy people to get an education. You can do this!
