Thank you so much for allowing Sarah and I to attend OLC this month. It was both professionally rewarding and informational. Though many times I go to conferences hoping to come back with new gadgets or tools to implement, the value in this conference was definitely the collaboration with others. During my first break out session, I met Dr. Omar Lopez. He is from the University of Texas and is in the midst of building a competency based program at Texas State University.
And the habits I built at the university such as self-teaching, critical thinking and the ability to collecting and processing information help me a lot during my work. However, in reflecting upon my experiences as a graduate, there were several obstacles I had to overcome. It often seems confusing about the differences between walking out your comfort zone and doing something you don’t like. When I first came to Stony Brook, this problem became more important as I chose the major I didn’t like at first time. My major was computer science.

“Training and development play a vital role in the effectiveness of an organization” (Falola, Osibanjo, & Ojo 2014). Carmax lists their culture and values on their website. They want to show potential new hires why they are great. This type of transparency peaks the interest of job seekers and likely a great candidate pool to choose from. This is an effective way to show potential employees what they can expect when they join the company.
The radio show also uses media use when they re-air the program at different times such as the weekends to find content to occupy the time, therefore, “… practice fills programming time while allowing” listeners another chance to hear the show (McIntosh). The station Power 105.1 has a website that recaps the shows hot topics that were discussed and advertisements by using the tool in media content called hyperlinks. The hyperlinks can send you to the advertisers site by clicking the ad by choice. Their media audience is described as “Listeners between the ages of 25-to-54, in particular, are choosing to turn the dial to Power 105.1 more frequently” (Harris). Media distribution (viral videos), the show places footage from the radio show to several online platforms, such as YouTube and have had several viral videos.
The sight of all the equipment sent a rush of excitement through me like that moment when my first program finally ran its course. Today, I imagine spending hours in the lab (probably way past my bedtime) and seeing my name published in a research journal, perhaps alongside a Texas A&M University’s faculty member. I intend to also join the Aggie Club of Engineering where I can group with students in the same field and solve real world problems- which will give me tons of job world experience. With this experience, I hope to apply to many internships to give me the necessary prerequisites to launch my own successful software company. Unlike high school, I’m now hoping to enter a place where even if we’re still

I build networks and server systems, program, develop various design concepts. I used RFID chips in my latest project with which I won a national student stipend. I used my skills with servers to create a gaming community which I ran for two years. Projects such as these allow me to develop my teamwork skills, in addition to a plethora of other valuable abilities. I have also taken part in more non-technical events, such as a few international conferences where I was able to improve my competence to hold debates, to clearly present my point of view, or my ideas, and to maintain a constructive conversation that doesn’t escalate into conflict even if several opinions are involved.

Weston showed me their account managers and explained how he uses the data to make decision about which posts to boost and when. Concepts Acquired Some concepts I was not prepared for was the maintenance of equipment’s and the mass of data that was created each week. Some of the tools Weston used to maintain and transfer data back and forth from Computers, networks, shared folders, and external hard drives was dizzying, and the number of dongles and accoutrements he used to enhance his computer and camera rig was astounding. By the end of the semester I had several of the applications on my own mac, and plan to implement his strategies to clean up both the user interface and disk space of my
