My life experiences are constantly expanding. Many years ago I read an article that summed up the qualities of successful managers. The most notable characteristic was that successful managers became good managers in all areas of their business. That has driven me to continually expand my areas of expertise, both professionally and personally. That need not be limited to managers; it can be applied to any position in life.
Although it is not finished, and never complete, this site is a review of my expanding job interests, preparation, experiences and the skills I've acquired in the process. The preferred entry point is in the Interests section, although a History is also available for a different perspective.
More . . .
I started my working career as a blue color worker, and continued mostly in that area for years, although I continued to add to me potential. Quality of characteristics is more important that years of experience.
My strongest motivations are to complete tasks assigned and to provide a quality product. I attempt to utilize all of the resources available in completing the assignment. Utitlization has two aspects. On the one hand, utilize the limited resources available. Find a way. On the other hand, utilize the full resources available at the time from whatever resource is available. With software, that means mastering every useful aspect of the program.
Clean and efficient
With experience in various areas, I have a desire to be efficient and clean. In programming, that means the cleanest, most efficient code. In accounting, that means the cleanest, most meaningful presentation of information.
Growth continues to be a strong ..
With the wealth of resources and opportunities, there really is no limit to what I can accomplish.
Summary of interest development
writing (writing, teaching, best way to learn; more efficient than talking)
Explain some of the important skills you have picked up in your career up to this point. Try to give examples of where you picked up these skills. In the example below, the author mentions that he/she developed ‘during my degree’.
Make sure that the skills that you mention are the ones that the employer is looking for. You will find out about what they are looking for by studying the job advert and the person specification.
During my degree I successfully combined my studies with work and other commitments showing myself to be self-motivated, organised and capable of working under pressure. I have a clear, logical mind with a practical approach to problem solving and a drive to see things through to completion. I enjoy working on my own initiative or in a team. In short, I am reliable, trustworthy, hardworking and eager to learn and have a genuine interest in PR.
This update will actually help me to see areas to develop in order to have a more well-rounded list of qualifications.
