What I did today

I was late to class but started in on my scratch project as soon as I created a ticket, pasted my work from yesterday into it, and submitted a tech article.

It took me awhile to get the hang of scratch, especially the coordinates when placing characters/sprites.  And then it became hard to stop adding things!  I decided to stay late to get more practice and when I got thee project to a reasonable stopping point, shared the link in my ticket.

Today I decided to work on a children’s story project. I used text to voice, animation, motion, and different backgrounds.  I tried to add many different technics to make my project more engaging to children when they play it.  I have a lot of fun creating it.  I have to constantly edit myself so I will not go overboard and make it so confusing to understand.

What I Did Today…

Today I did an elective assignment on Job/Company research. I also took a skillsoft course. I passed the course test with an 80 percentile score. I ended the day managing conflict with customers and co-workers. It takes a little work to be an accountable professional.

What I Did Today

Today I really dived into Google Sheets for the Pro Electives Assignment. It made me really bring together most of what I have learned so far in Pro and Bootcamp. I was copying, pasting, creating links and really gathering information on a variety of art museums and putting that information into a sheets document. I was intimidated at first (as I always am) about the assignment. I am glad I spent most of today working on it because I could see me having to do something similar to this in a job. What I mean is-not that I would be looking up art museums but rather that I might have to look up information and put it in a sheets or excel document.

What I did today

Comcast apparently had outages in 3 western states today so I made a last minute dash to an alternate wifi source, arriving late to class but intact.

Jose graciously did a brilliant 2 minute catch-up summary and we all launched into the pre lab and the creation of our own scratch project.  I watched about 5 tutorials then took a stab at my project, figuring out a basic plotline, my characters, props, and sounds.  Then I tried to add movement with hilarious results (not intended!). Jose explained the “broadcast” feature, which I think we solve the unintended time and space collisions.

What I Did Today

Today we started on our new lab working with Scratch, a coding program developed by MIT. It is fun and easy to learn coding basics because the commands work together and “lock” with each other. I’m exited to see what kind of cool stuff my classmates create.

What I Did Today…

Today I worked on my profile, a 10-page slideshow, all about my work to be an IT. The profile includes my life before CTP, accomplishments during CTP, my favorite parts of the class, my skills and qualifications, and my future in a job. It isn’t due for a few weeks, but I want to start early.

What I Did Today

Today I worked on the electives assignment. I enjoyed it because it was straightforward and I was able to finish one relatively quickly. However, I was unable to finish the second elective before the end of class. The first one made me realize that answering the questions on the job/company assignment could be helpful in an interview. Doing a little research on a job can go a long way.

It has been a good day.

What I did Today

Employment services Fridays are like deadlines for me.  I tend to put the updating of my resume and cover sheet off and REALLY appreciate being “forced” to work on them on Fridays.  Thanks, Carrie!

I finally embraced trying for a matchmaker position.  I think I had been putting off that decision.  So I updated all my docs with that goal in mind.  Things are getting a little clearer.

Hearing and having to speak the interview questions is helping me overcome my shyness and get ideas of better ways to represent myself.  Phew!

Since I haven’t applied for a job in about 30 years it was very helpful to also write the post application email and make a call.

 

What I Did Today…

Today we did a job application follow-up. Whoever invented the application follow-up must be out of this world. It really makes your application, resume, and cover letter look good. During the second hour of class, I spent doing Linked job research. In the last hour of class, we did an interview Q&A.  I pointed out I have a passion for computers and being polished and professional.

What I did today

Today, I went over different aspects of employment services, especially how to follow up on a job application, by phone or by e-mail. Also had a good time listening to the other participant’s answers to their interview questions. Good Friday!
