My biggest goal in college Earl Nightingale argues, ”Your problem is to bridge the gap between where you are now and the goal you intended to reach”. I believe college education is something to be endured in order to become qualified to obtain certain kinds of jobs. After finishing a bachelor degree in computer science, I become a data engineer. My job requires me to have a strong background in programming and statistic which I learned in the classes. 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.
You may be wondering why an environmental engineer is interested in studying Management Information Systems. The reality is that information technology and managerial strategies have been central components throughout my life. I am currently working as a software engineer and although I have enjoyed my career till date, my true interests lie in acquiring the management capabilities and advanced training in information systems. I am now seeking a more sophisticated knowledge of information systems and management techniques that impact positively on every aspect of an organization’s business’ operations. During my higher secondary education, my interests and ability were inclined towards the logically oriented subjects like mathematics, physics,
“You need to go one step ahead” a constant thought that incited me to aim/experience/ go to/ take up higher education. Right from the school days the experiences, knowledge and the learnings have strongly reinforced my career goals. “Growth is the most important career goal that a person must look into” I believe. Hence/So in order to unceasingly grow in my line of work and to serve the society in the best possible way, I desire to pursue my graduate education in electrical. The fact that there are so many engineers in my family, had inspired me to take up electrical engineering.
Although several characters represent the adaptation to change, those who fully embraced the change and truly benefit are Penumbra and Nick. Throughout Penumbras life he has adapted to the use of books yet after being exposed to the true potential of technology he works to open his mind up to it in order to benefit his life and his business. When Clay tracks down Penumbra in New York, Penumbra reveals his plans; “I have come to make my case [...] computers, my boy [...] they hold the key for us (Sloan 130)”. Penumbra recognizes that the key is not only reachable through the books yet it is reachable through technology as well.

My strong efforts will surely help me within my career as a software engineer. I have experienced positive and negative experiences, but through practicing new tasks that my field requires, I have been able to gain new skills in communication and writing. I am currently a software engineer and I am fully aware of the strong communication skills that are necessary to succeed in this occupation. Each day I use what I have learned to be a better communicator, but I know that there is so much more to learn so that I can be a better writer and communicator within my career.
Moving into the real world (workforce) I will feel these same emotions once again during stressful and busy times, and people will need my empathy. Knowing this I will be able to be empathetic toward situations at hand, allowing myself and my peers to collaborate in a more operative manner. What really drives me to “my quality world” and a “life of success” are the multiple careers I dream of. Computer network engineering, audio engineering, ministering the gospel, and photography. I strive to make audio engineering and photography my hobbies, and keep Computer network engineering as my main goal when I’m done with college, with that being one of my goals I will be able to have a steady income and provide for myself.
I am presently familiarizing myself with the portal of MyWalden. Getting to know how to navigate the different areas and features of the online institution, where and how to get help and how to access my classroom and other resources. I am also utilizing the various webinar sessions that provide guides and practices that will help to sharpen my writing skills. Emotionally, I know that the tenure of my study will not only be rewarding but also challenging hence, time management is paramount in order to meet the daily demands of study, job and family. I have created a time management plan with guidance from Walden resource center that I will be utilizing.
An example of this was clear when I was searching for methods to assess participants’ mood and arousal, mental state, and cognitive tasks. Research and psychologists are mandated to use valid and reliable tools in their research (APA, 2010). In order to address this matter, I had to read many sources, and re-read earlier notes from SNHU courses. My commitment and dedication to deliver a quality job helped me find what I was looking for. These characteristics, which I considered some of my strengths, will definitely be of great use in my forthcoming
D. program, my goals in the short term will be to reinforce my technical knowledge and work on research that will enhance my skills in communication technology and extend the abstract understanding of utilization and generation of information. Upon completion of the Ph. D. program, my long-term objective is to get a research position in a learning institution where I will be able to share my experience and skills with other individuals passionate about the course. My extensive experience in the job market and exposure to numerous management disciplines will be a firm foundation for my studies towards my Ph. D. at your institution.
As a student, I learn the best through experience, applying what I learn rather than just studying it and putting it on paper. Through my research project I have the opportunity to use what I have learned in class and gain a better grasp of the material. The project provides me with the opportunity to not only improve my comprehension of material but also helps to guide my professional goals. After receiving my bachelor’s degree I hope to pursue further research in the field of biotechnology and help to innovate new technologies for the health care industry. My current project has these implications and has given me a chance to explore what I want to do for my career.
