Techniques such as annotating, asking questions that pertain to the reading and using acronyms can be used to aid myself when reading. Techniques should not be hindering me to read. Especially since there is a lot of reading, having the ability to color coat my reading can be extremely beneficial especially when reviewing before an exam. However, If I do not implement any techniques the only person I am hurting is myself. The “Engage College Reading” text book is giving me tools so I can be successful throughout my college
* Do you have any questions? I was given a C for my completion of application form which I feel is fair because I don’t think I completed it to my best ability because I was limited to how long I could spend on it and the section on writing about myself I needed to have more skills to interest the business in employing me. I was scored a B for first impressions which I feel I deserved an A because I was punctual as I arrived early, I also wore smart/casual clothing ensuring I was prepared for the interview. I tried to be happy and positive about the interview introducing myself with a handshake so I don’t feel I need to improve on this. My body language was scored at a B, I feel she gave me a b because when asked about how to behave during an interview I realised I was slouching but that was the only thing I was doing to make her feel I was disinterested, other than that I was fully engaged in conversation and smiling.
I figured it was cheaper for me to learn how to repair my own system than having someone else do what I could do myself, and this is why I wanted to become a computer technician. A good computer technician can solve technical problems and give advice so they don’t happen again. Four typical problems a computer technician can resolve are: computer keeps on rebooting, lag computers, viruses-worms, and Trojans. Learning how to resolve these problems and others will give me the expertise I need for becoming a professional, which will also require education. Once I have the training and education I need, I will have a good job and salary opportunities.
Another advantage is that many more job opportunities will come and I will have a better selection then I do now. The pay is also better for someone with a college degree as to someone with no college degree. This is a big one for me living a good life is all I really want for my wife and kids. Some disadvantages I feel is less time to spend with the family, another stress added to everyday life, and more work to do on an already busy day. I love to spend time with my family and going to school as definitely put a little damper on that.
The feeling that I have when writing is a very joyous one because it is my nonverbal communication to express my emotions and thoughts without the critism of the outside world. Writing is truly an art that takes practice and concentration, and once you have accomplished this skill, you will succeed in the process of writing. To begin with, the experience that I have had as a writer were both good and bad. They were good because I was able to earn good grades on my essays in school, I made excellent pen pal friends because of my ability to write and I was able to survive my teenage years with the writings that took place in my diary. Writing was my safe haven and it always cheered me up because of the fact that I could transfer my thoughts from my mind and unto a sheet of paper that would hold memories of a lifetime!
I have a weakening of going over and beyond in helping people and I tend to go over and beyond with clients. I am not complete if I do not provide the right help and some clients tend to get attached. At the end if the day I am happy with the service I provided. Knowing more about what I do is a great addition for me not only can I provide more information but I get to give them the proper information that they need to know and I and happy knowing the client is happy. Coming to college is going to give the education I need to make my skill stronger so I can provide a better service than I do now.
Running Head: MULTICULTURAL PROFICIENCY Multicultural Proficiency Lydia Brown PSY 535 Professor Anyikwa University of Phoenix Online October 12, 2009 Multicultural Proficiency Years ago I thought I was the least prejudiced and biased person alive. When I entered the field of human services, I began to recognize that I had a lot to learn about work with others, but most important, I had much to learn about what I thought about others. As an individual, I wanted to grow and change my views of others and become the person I thought I was. This also has an impact on my growth as a professional who works with others. The guidelines on Multicultural Education provide clarity for the professional working in the field of psychology.
I think the most helpful worksheet for this paper was the communication strategy worksheet. It really help me solved all the underlying questions beforehand so it was easier for me to write my first draft. Once I started writing my draft I found it to be very hard to not make a recommendation. I felt that my first draft was very unorganized because I begin putting more emphasis on other issues. If it wasn’t for the peer reviews, I
That’s one of the reasons I chose to pursue a CPA license. To become a CPA takes a lot of education and certain personal characteristics and the salary expectations and prospects for growth are fairly flexible. When I was a little girl, I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to be when I grew up. All I knew is I wanted to help people somehow. After becoming an adult, having a family of my own, working mediocre jobs, and learning how the world works, I finally decided that I could be very helpful to people as a CPA.
Although I could have taken other courses that fell under speech, I chose this one because I thought it to be more beneficial in my personal and career development, which comes to my second reason. I took this class for personal and career growth. Throughout my years in the real-world, all my jobs have been centered towards the public. I guess that is why I switched my major from Business Administration to Public Safety Administration. Dealing with the public you are always going to have to communicate in some way or form, just as you would on a day to day basis when you interact with others; children, spouse, co-workers, family, and/or friends.
