I have a petty theft misdemeanor. I was going through a hard time and was trying to get food for my family. I was given a citation and ordered to pay a fine. I am currently in the process of getting my record expunged. I am a honest hard-worker with a strong work ethic. I am a fast learner and very goal oriented. I work well in teams as well as
My work history sounds extremely disjointed to most people. My boss even asks me to give an account of it to our new hires, almost like a party trick. However, I believe the variety in the vocations I have spent my time in has given me a unique perspective and work ethic. I started my work-life as the third generation of my family in the funeral industry. I spent nights and weekends assisting with after-hours visitations and wakes, making sure the families who had recently lost a loved one were well cared for. I'm not sure I realized it at the time, but that job gave me the perfect platform to learn to listen well and use my gift of compassion. Like many college students, I spent some time working retail at the local mall. Quite the culture shock after working with friends and family in an industry I had grown up around.
1) Tell me about a time when you did repetitive work that required a high degree of accuracy.
My first example of one of my peices of work is my Garage Sale flyer. I choes this as one of my examples because it demonstates my understandings of our unit all about creating flyers,business cards etc… The strongest aspects of this peice of work is the way I have all the information needed in an organized way. It does not look super cluttered. I think i could always work on something with any peice of work i do. With this peice i think i could work on my spelling and puncuation. Some of the skills i use to create this peice were; Change the backround, Bordes and accents, Text and
You seemed as if you left out of your 4th block Spanish from those rusty gray doors on the side of our school building.
I have learnt many skills helping me day with work pouring concrete and laboring for block layers. First let me give you a little background. My dad was worked as a bricklayer since he was sixteen. He has done the same type of work for most of his life, and that's where I come in. My first job was in the summer of 2012 My dad asked me if I wanted to go along and help him with a side job he had going. I said sure and we headed out around nine o'clock. Our first job was to replace a concrete pad and stairs for this house that was up for sale. We had to set up forms for the concrete, and pour it. I learned how to oil up forms so the concrete didn't stick.
This year school year I promised myself that I wouldn’t wait to the last minute to do my homework/assignments and I wanted to try to procrastinate less. So far I have been successful in doing so and I feel like my work ethic has gotten a lot better. For example, instead of waiting until Sunday to do my homework I’ll finish it on Friday or Saturday before coming back to school on Monday. This way I’ll have more free time during the weekend. The reason I chose to do this is that I was always stressed out because I would always wait until the last minute to do everything, so I went with the obvious solution. In doing this, I feel like my work has more quality and it makes me feel proud of it.
At approximately 1400 on Wednesday, March 9,2016 I arrived at 7810 Shaver Rd for my Internship with the Portage Department of public safety. I meet with LT.VandenBrink he then told me that I would be riding with an officer today. The officer's name was officer Mike Kline. I went and put my vest on and then meet with kline as soon as he arrived to the station from a call he was on. When Kline arrived I introduced myself we were about to head out when he remembered that he had to pick up a paper he printed off. After he got the paper we went ot to his car we left the station and he informed me that we would be driving around the portage Rd area because he was waiting on a call about some apartments that he might have to go to and sweep for and
There has been a change in life. I quit my job at Countdown. I could not stop thinking about work 24/7. Always wondering if they were going to call, then having a day off and go grocery shopping and they see me and then they call after I leave and get home. It was as if they figure “Oh Karen’s out shopping so she isn’t doing anything she can come in.” I just couldn’t settle into the day or night.
In this essay, I will be talking about some of my characteristics and answering the question of who am I?
When i was looking at my transcript and remembering the courses and the teachers, i found out that my transcript say a lot about who i am. It mainly reflects how i think.
Unfortunately, I am still looking for a position at the moment. I feel like I targeted my job search too much in the beginning by looking only for academic advising positions in the Western NY region. I did get two on-campus interviews for advising positions in June and July but I did not get an offer. I made it pretty far into the selection process for an SL3 advising position at UB, but they ultimately decided on someone with more experience.
Who are you that approached me from behind, returning from the store that night ?
I think I went through this latest challenge because I likely took on too much work, in such a short period of time. During this time as I was getting more and more stressed out, I isolate myself and stay inside my head. I stopped communicating with my parents about my feelings. This always seems to be one of the first things I do, when I start struggling in a situation; stop talking to my support system. However, after a week of feeling this way and my mom prodding me into opening up to her (because she could tell something was wrong), I finally picked up the phone and called.
My major personal, professional, and educational challenge is English as a second language. I believe that this is my major constraint preventing me from speaking up, having difficulty to find appropriate words to express some ideas quick enough, and affects my writings. With having this limitation, takes me long time to complete my assignments compared with other students. However, at work I have learned to communicate very well with others with topics related to my career. Unfortunately, when there is the need to talk about different topics I have very limited vocabulary. With this limitation, the only way to come around is to continue working very hard in improving my writing, learning new vocabulary each day in school with all the assigned
