There is a lot of things to be considered when planning this sort of trip, not only do you need to concern yourself with getting all members traveling on the trip to cooperate and up to speed at the same time.

Making Travel Planning and Arrangements for the business trip from Milwaukee to Tokyo – Japan

We all dream about traveling for business. Now the moment is here and you are wondering where to start. Well, first of all, you should take care of your travel documents. Everything else won’t be possible if you show up at the airport without your passport. Issuance of a passport is a process. You have to gather all the paperwork needed and it might take a while. First of all, you will need to fill out the form DS-11. Also, there are all the instructions how to do that for the first time and if you are just renewing the passport, fee calculator and FAQ section. Besides the form, you need to present your US birth certificate or Naturalization Certificate, proof of identity such as the expired/expiring passport, naturalization certificate, which you already have, but just to make sure I would take current valid driver’s license with me.  Two passport photographs, 2×2 inches, have to be made prior to applying, and just in one hour, you can have them done at Walmart, Walgreens, FedEx office, or small photography studios. As everything else, the passport has to be paid for. There is the application fee of $ 97 total, but it contains three different fees, and one of them is the execution fee that is paid to the facility where you are applying. Check whether it is possible to combine all the fees in one payment or not and what forms of payment are acceptable because they vary. There is the option to pay for expedited service of $ 60 to get your passport as soon as possible, but if you...

How to get Certified for Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) – Actionable Plan

Today I will be giving an overview of all of the steps you need to follow to successfully meet your goal of getting the Microsoft Office Specialist Certification. This will include the best steps to achieving this goal as well as all costs associated with preparation and certification. I will also be giving a timeline of what to expect so you can better plan for taking these exams. The Microsoft Office Specialist is a great certification to get because the office suite is widely used in all aspects of business and it is less technically challenging than many of the industry standard certifications. First, I will go over the steps you will need to accomplish in order to achieve this certification in a timely and organized manner. The first logical step is to gather materials needed and schedule the exams themselves. As far as materials go I highly recommend picking up a study guide for each test (more on these later). Once you have your study materials acquired it is time to schedule the exams themselves. There are five different exams to get the Microsoft Office Specialist certification, one for each program in the office suite. I would recommend scheduling your exam ten weeks out as to give you time to fully prepare for the exams, also keep in mind each exam lasts 90 minutes so it will be a full eight-hour day. I live in the Milwaukee area making my closest testing center New Horizons located on 15700 w. Bluemound Road (844.745.3983). The next step in my project plan is to prepare for the exams. I have planned...
