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.

Contactless Tech’s Role in the New Guest Experience ft. Intelity and The George

 Contactless hospitality technology is growing. You want to get away, and you'll be damned if a little thing like a deadly virus will stop you! But you still don't want to touch things. Ew. During the chat between INTELITY CEO Robert Stevenson and THE GEORGE Director of Operations Kerrie Hunter, you’ll learn how the historic boutique hotel has adapted a mobile-first guest experience in the wake of COVID-19—and how they see contactless technology affecting the future of hospitality. I don't remember how I found INTELITY (probably hoping to score a position with them), but I liked them enough to stay on the e-mail lists.  

Connecting IoT Devices to a Registration Server (Packet Tracer, Cisco)

In Packet Tracer, a demo software made by Cisco Systems. It certainly has changed a lot since 2016. It's almost an Olympic feat to even get started with it now, but it does look snazzy. This is for the new CCNA, that integrates, among other things, IoT and Automation, which I've worked on here before. Instructions here . I don't know if this is an aspect of "Let's make sure people are paying attention and not simply following blindly", or an oversight - The instructions indicate a Meraki Server, when a regular one is the working option here. I have to enable the IoT service on this server. Also, we assign the server an IPv4 address from a DHCP pool instead of giving it a static one. For something that handles our IoT business, perhaps that's safer; Getting a new IPv4 address every week or so is a minimal step against an intruder, but it is a step. There are no devices associated with this new server; In an earlier lab (not shown), I attached them to 'H
