Comment Ask for reimbursement (Score 1) 281

Have you asked to have the fees covered? When my company began asking me to handle areas of the business that I wasn't prepared for I requested a graduate degree so I could gain the skill set. They agreed to pay for tuition. I would pay for books and attend class in the evening. I could study whenever so long as I got my duties done. I would not sever employment or get fired for negligence for 2 years after receiving a reimbursement check or I would pay back 100% from 0 - 1 years or 50% from 1 - 2 years. Also, reimbursement was based on performance; 100% for an A, 80% for a B, and 50% for a C. My company was concerned I would take my new skill set and shop around for new employment so the agreement give them some protection and a chance to recoup their investment.

Couldn't you just use a silicone fluid like Dow Corning 200 Fluid? It's available in a wide range of viscosities to suit your pumping, flow, and evaporation requirements. We use it as a medium for Dk and Df testing on microwave lamiantes. http://www.dowcorning.com/applications/search/products/?Ntt=200&N=0&Ntx=mode+matchany&WT.svl=3&Nty=1&Ntk=ProductFinder_en
