Lessons on Service Learning

As I worked on this project I am somewhat surprised that there is not a greater interest in joining the group, but I think some of that is due a lack of awareness. That is one of the reason I am glad that the club is focus on bring about that awareness to the student and members of the community.

One thing that I have learned is that it's difficult getting people interested in being participant in a group or organization. I have found that people are quick to express there interest but are not very willing to be active participant in a club/group.

The group that I worked with was great, when the Technical Definition was given out I was out of class that week. When I returned the following week they were willing to help me catch up on the assignment. I really feel that as a group we have worked good together.

When the group worked to together on the Instructions Assignment every one was very helpful and informative. No one have a problem with what they were assigned. This is one of the best groups that I have every worked with.

I would like to thank every for their help.

Social networking can be fun but can hurt you at the same time and cause harm in some cases. When people are socially networking they forget that it is open to the public. Some of the things that people put on MySpace, Face book, and Twitter could cause them to lose their job and create problems in the long run. If a person runs for public office or seek certain jobs information from social networking may be reason for them not being elected or hired. These and other sites are for communication purposes not to put your personal business in the street or things that you don’t want others to see. I have seen things on these sites that would embarrass most people. I often wonder when people are putting different things on MySpace, Face book and other sites are they thinking about who will see their page. There are people in the world today that are looking for people who are easy prey, such as young girls and boys to whom they may cause harm to. Many stories has been seen where children has been abducted because they have befriended someone on a social network. People tend to use the sites to get access to your personal information which could lead to identity theft and other types of things that can cause problems for them.

Professional networking can be very helpful. Visual CV and other sites can help people get jobs. You can post resumes, your professional career information, achievements, and certificates of accomplishments that can help employers know who they are interviewing. Professional network has many opportunities if you are looking for a professional job or looking to meet other professional that are on the same altitude that you are, check out

Use your real name

Remeber Never To:

Identity Online

Trying to network for personal business interest can be rewarding but also hurtful to your reputation. Many people use the internet for personal activities such as, communicating with friends and family on informal basis. Social networking sites such as Facebook and Myspace are considered as fun ways to stay updated with your friend’s activities. Yet you should limit your personal life on such site, if it may possibly be something that will ruin your business reputation. This does not mean you should stop interacting informally with friends. Yet you should stay away from nude and embarrassing photos or post lingo that would cause people to view you negatively. You should always check the privacy settings on social network site so your personal information can stay secured. Make sure you keep your personal interaction separate from your business affairs. Your business appearance should be far more important than your personal interest.

The workplace is ever changing in our society. Many years ago technology in the work place was very basic and formed to fit the knowledge of the employees of its time. In today society technology is changing rapidly. The world seems to rapidly change with technology, such as text messages, instant messaging, WI-FI, DVD, E-mail etc. All of these have an effect on the workplace. Years ago several of these new age ways of communicating was not necessary in the workplace as it is today. Many employees are now forced to re-enter the classrooms to survive in the workplace where there is complex technology everywhere and trying to keep up with the younger generation of workers who are efficient in latest high tech ways of communicating and executing the job. Some managers in companies try to set up programs and training meetings to educate the employees on the changes in the workplace and inform them on ways to prepare to for new age communication. Furthermore, it is key to inform yourself with the ever changing technology in the workplace.

Kimetha's My Personal Mission Statement

I am the person that believes if there is something you want in life, nothing can hold you back from accomplishing it. In my life there were many things that I wanted to accomplish and by the Grace of God I have accomplished most of them. Raising my children was my biggest accomplishment, being a young single mother it was very hard to stay focus and faithful to what I believed in, because I felt God had given me a bad deal. But I knew prayer was the key to all my answers.

Having to deal with a tragic accident in my family, gave me a greater responsibility in raising my two nieces. Raising them to be knowledgeable and focus on the better things in life, as young ladies now they have a positive outlook on life.

I believe that all the hard work I have done in my life has given me the ambition to further my education and seek my degree. I have obtain my Associate Degree in Business and now I am working toward my Bachelor Degree. In order for me to succeed I must continue to work hard, I have to study for long hours to accomplish this additional goal I set for myself.

With the faith I have in God and realizing he is the head of my life , my journey will be made clear and I can walk easy.

Types of Career Assessment Inventories (aka Tests)

Personality Tests
I think employment test are useful because they help match a person with a job that they are suited for and it is also useful to employers in their selection of individual to a specific job type.
