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.
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
While the application was throughouh in most of its different sections, I would like to take the time to write more about me as a person, and my personal work ethic. While it could be assumed that I am a good student from my high honors and my advanced classes, those are all just numbers. Numbers cannot justify someone as a good or a bad student. It is my belief that the personal ethic and strageis to schooling along with drive for success is what sets apart the great students from the good students.
While some people around me flourish in their athletics, others succeed in their schoolwork. Personally, my most outstanding strength stands as my work ethic. When certain activities do not come naturally for me, I work as hard as possible to get better at them. Multiple instances of this have occurred over the past few years. For example, this year I participated in lacrosse for the first time. I usually spent my time playing soccer, but after a concussion that prevented me from playing again, I decided to give something else a a try. Going into a new sport like lacrosse was initially difficult for me. I had no idea how to play, everyone else had far more advanced skills than I did, and my confidence level started to deflate.

There are many things that sets me apart from other candidates applying to California State University, Long Beach, but one that specifically sets me apart is my work ethic. I have disciplined myself to the point where if my work is not done I am not satisfied with what I have done. Not only have I disciplined myself, but I have been disciplined by my parents to work hard and anything can be achieved if you aren’t afraid to fail and put the effort needed. Without discipline I would not have the grades I have, I would not have the GPA I have, and I would not be able to have the opportunities I have now. I was not the best student at one time, but I wanted to accomplish my goal, which is to be successful. I had to build up my work ethic to be able to achieve this goal.
I have been working like a machine for the past seven days. I have been getting up at the crack of dawn every morning and getting our oxen ready to go. I try as best I can to help with breakfast so that Mrs. right doesn't have to take care of us that much. After that I wake the children up, we all eat breakfast, and head on our way. When the sun is high in the sky we stop for lunch. Lunch is most likely a sandwich and a small drink of water, then once again, we pack up, and then continue going. A few hours before the sun is about to set, we set up camp. All of the women start making a big dinner, all of the men round up the animals and put them in the circle of wagons, and the children play for a little while. Once that is done we all
So, imagine a stocky six foot black man who had a shiny bold head. Alright, now make that same man a veteran and a drill sergeant. Now give that man a raspy voice and an almost permanently angry face. Now that you have that image in your head, you have
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.
Of all the aspects of my personality, the most distinguishing is my work ethic. This is best exemplified in the ways that I have risen to the top within the groups I have worked with and the projects I have worked on. The most recent example: I am currently working with a student committee at my high school to organize a “Career Day”. Although I came into the group on their second meeting, I am now the de facto leader as I have accepted the most responsibility and been key in communicating with administration to plan and schedule the event. When nobody will take on an assignment or when I feel an assignment is not being completed well enough, I step in, and that is what happened with my involvement on this project. For another example, I went
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
I feel my style of practice continues to expand from the knowledge I've gained from this, and my other courses as well as from the many hours I have spent at the hospital with my field instructor. In addition, I am definitely more self-confident and informed in my approach when interacting with the patients and staff at the hospital. One downside, is that there is not enough time in the day, because, I have once again fallen behind on some school work, so I'm trying to employ some new time management techniques that will allow me to go to work, spend time at my practicum site and complete my assignments with fidelity. With all that said I thought this course was a very eye-opening experience and I am excited as well as looking forward to actually
I am an Admissions Clinician at a private psychiatric hospital and residential treatment center in the Oklahoma City area. I currently work with ages 5+, including women with an extensive history of trauma. While working with people and families in crisis I found that I enjoy working with children and adolescents, especially the population that other clinicians loathe (children with aggressive behavior, etc.). This work is challenging and emotionally consuming at times. Due to the cognitive and emotional requirements of working inpatient, I decided to decrease my hours during the week to focus on more on being successful in the doctoral program. I also preform administrative work for a behavioral health non-profit in Virginia as needed. Working
Overall, I am a work in progress that continues to enhance in my basic and advanced skills day by day. I believed I am getting better and I will continue to practice until I am a master piece. Honestly, I feel comfortable entering the counseling field after learning many techniques
As a child who has grown up moving around several times, I believe it has shaped me to find out who I am. It has encouraged myself to find out who I am and try new things. When I was younger I was extremely reserved but meeting new people as I moved schools forced me to branch out and become the individual I am today. One of my strongest passions is succeeding, but to succeed I've come to realize you have to fail. As a typical child figuring out what I love to do, I trial and error with almost every sport you could think of soccer, basketball, softball, gymnastics. In middle school I was in sports and also band, but I came to realize academics is one of the things I love to succeed in the most, it gives me a rush of happiness when I'm doing
I was starting a new job in one of the best and biggest law firms in the state. I was so proud of myself. I put on my favorite black skirt and a new blouse I brought just to show off my tits. I mean if any more cleavage showed you would see my nipples. I put on a pair of stockings; it was way too hot for pantyhose. Then I pulled my hair up into a ponytail, put on my 3-inch spiked heels and a sweater. I buttoned my sweater to the top as I got out of my car and entered the building.
