Paper on Individual Skills and Strengths
On this paper I will be trying to explain and talk about certain skills that I believe I posses and how those skill work and help me to achieve my goals in life and in my professional life. There are many types of skills and is not until we sit down and think about what skills are and how is it that we use them, that make us reaklize who we really are. There are social skills, basic personal skills and professional skills, there is so much we can say about what the difference is and how we applied these skills in our everyday life. So I will try to pick a handful of skills that I believe I have or had adquire thru the years. Computer/Technical Literacy
Almost all jobs now require some basic understanding of computer hardware and software, especially word processing, spreadsheets, and email. In the last year I have probably have been working in computers than I have ever done before. I believe is important to learn how to use computers for your advantage. Now and days everything and anything people do has to do with computers, from writing a paper from school, paying bills online and checking your bank account, talking to friends and family by e-mail or chatting on the internet to the way hospitals keep your records. All records are now save on digital devices such as computer hard drives, personal memory cards or memory usb drives to super computers networks such has yahoo and/or msn browsers. I believe is important for everyone to have access to a computer and internet, because it has beco9me almost imposible to access any information unless you have access to it. Every compny, scholls and government agencies use their websites as the primary access for any customer or member of organization to be able to look at the services offer by that company or inquire about their services and information. If anyone wants to now where an dareess fro specific business is by just entering the name or the type of business they looking for on a computer with access to the internet, they will get all kinds of information regarding that
business including, Name of the business, address, telephone, map, type of services offer, and sometimes you could ratings and comments from other people that are post it fror anyone to read.
This are just various examples of how important it is to have access to computers and to the internet but to also know how to use computers. Other ways people can benefit from computer is for entretaitment, to videos and listen to miusic as well as maybe even watching tv.Others my like to get information such as the news either by reading or watching them over the internet. Me personally I like to create projects and also use it to write papers for school such as the one I am writing right now. Computers also open the doors for me because of the job that I do which is teching computer classes to adults. And this is how I appliy this skill in my personal life.
Willingness to Learn
No matter what your age, no matter how much experience you have, you should always be willing to learn a new skill or technique. Jobs are constantly changing and evolving, and you must show an openness to grow and learn with that change. Is like they is never to late to learn. And that is absolutely right, where there is will. there is away . Learning should be and is a life long phenomena , it never stops. The human being never stops learning we all have the God given ability to learn, we all learn something new everyday. I believe that right now there is lots of opportunity for everyone to learn and to make something out of themselves. When my parents where growing up there weren’t that many oppurtunioties for people to go to school and to learn a career, there were only jobs for people but not carreer jobs. Only a small percentage of the population had accesss to an education beginning at the elementary school to the high school and college level, and these...
