Defining My Core Strengths


From cvlabs.ca

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 …

Search and Infiltrate: How to Deeply Investigate a Company's People [6/4/2020]

Latest Update - 6/4/2020


This is a bit of an impromptu post after reading this article.

I had a small thread about this on Twitter, a blog post is a lot better to get the information out in a clear way.

Have you ever used Recruitin.net, came across a group of people who match Your Dream Company, Dream Location, and do your Dream Job on LinkedIn...and they're not active?

What was the POINT, am I right?  A place for professionals to network, but they're not active ...because they have a job to do! You want to be like that!

Unfortunately, in this day and age, unless you have a 'relationship' with someone, they're not going to help you.

Hm. 

(Note: 'relationship' is different than relationship).

I'm not here to talk bad about recruiters - They have a difficult job, I know I couldn't do it! - And even they want a relationship before they place you somewhere, competency be damned.

What do you do instead?
