Defining My Core Strengths


If you are an investment, what sort of return can the employer expect?

Let's save this for later.

What job scenarios made you feel really good about the work you've done?

Whenever I'm not sure about pricing for something, be it a phone or a piece of sports memorabilia; I overestimate it purposefully.

When you double check later and it's lower, the customer will be surprised and delighted. It shows thinking on your feet and working on making the end user or customer pleased.

What kind of targets have been relatively easy for you to achieve or exceed?

Fix/Repair in a school environment; Around 15 - 20 instances a week.

What kind of work results have consistently popped up throughout your career? What helped you achieve those?

Things that almost work, but not quite UNTIL I talk to someone else and get another perspective on the situation; It shows teamwork and a willingness to learn.

Were you recognized by your peers and colleagues for any specific qualities or achievements? 

My focus was more on my work. I didn't socialize that much. I'm working on helping others and making myself known.

Have you ever been handpicked for a specific project or task? If so, why you?

Yes; We needed forms to be made, and wasn't sure if said forms could be made in Microsoft Word.

Head of IT appointed me to the job because I was the most reliable and would do the research to get it done.

After researching, I saw that yes, you can actually make forms in Microsoft Word to be printed out.

The result was a paper survey that looked professional.

Back to #1...

If you are an investment, what sort of return can the employer expect?

Me doing the job you hired me for. If I'm hired by you, and I choose you, I like your company. Within reason, I will go above and beyond because of brand loyalty, capability, and building stronger networks with others.

EMPLOYERS: This is me showing self-awareness.

Azure Networking Options - Core Cloud Services

I have done a lot of AWS things on here. Time to give Azure some attention. After all, since employers don't think Cisco or COMPTIA certifications are important, maybe Microsoft ones are?

First, let's really think about why these are the two biggest cloud services providers in the world:

They've been doing internet things for a long time.Amazon launched in 1995, a virtual bookstore.
Microsoft, well, you know. 

They've lived, breathed, and frankly, created, infrastructure that we use today, that they're selling to us today. Of course the Store of Everything and the Company of Everything would encourage us to put everything in their hands.

Also: Azure has a lot less silly names for modules. Important. I appreciate straightforwardness.

I said 'a lot less', not '100% sensible names'

Microsoft has a clear set of Azure Fundamentals that anyone can interact with. Let's talk about networking basics, basically to say, again, "Hi, employers, I have an …

Grace Hopper Celebration 2019 (GHC19)

From Aicha Evans' speech at the Keynote.
September 6th - I receive an email from Anita B Organization, saying "We read your application, we like your website, and here's a free ticket to GHC 2019 in Orlando, Florida!"

After a few more questions, it seemed everything was on the up and up, and so I accepted - and that's what this post is about!

For those who don't know, Grace Hopper Celebration is the largest gathering of Women in Technology in the world.

On a personal note, This is the first trip I've taken without my parents. Sure, they've left me behind to go on vacations, but I've never left them. I was totally worried! But you know what happened?

I met a lot of cool people in Orlando, learned a lot of neat things, and had a blast just walking around airports for upwards of 8 hours.

New Delta Sky Club on Wikimedia I really, really love airports! And I survived.

I know in the past, I've wormed my way out of jobs despite being interested simpl…
