Personal Evaluation for Computer Information Systems Online

Tell us why you decided to go into your chosen field of study, and how your education reinforced your desire to be a systems analysis for Caterpillar. How do these factors translate into benefits for us should we desire to hire you?

For as long as I can remember, computers have been a pivotal part of my life. Growing up in the era that I did computers were widely used and even began to appear in homes when I was a child. I was immediately fascinated with not just the computer but how it functioned and what its capabilities were. So as you can imagine, this passion has been instilled in me from childhood and it became very clear that I wanted to work in the field with computers from a very early age. In high school, after basically teaching a web development class the administration built a team to have the website of the school established. The four of us were responsible for everything pertaining to the website including design, function, and maintenance year after year. Upon attending an online university for a degree program, I honestly was not sure of what I wanted to pursue as a career. Computers were always a part of my life and I just was not sure that they were my passion. My major from day one has been Computer Information Systems and has been very educational and informative but I just was not sure what I wanted to do. Then a very endowed professor recommended me to an Information Security class and that’s when it became very clear that this is what I was meant to do.
During my time here at Louisiana Tech University there have been many situations that have helped reassure my decision in becoming a systems analyst for a major company. One of which was the professors, I always knew I had a strong love and passion for computers but after immersing into my curriculum, I began to increase knowledge and broaden my perspective which allowed me to reinforce this passion.

While working at a local restaurant, 102 K Bistro, I began to hone my oral communication skills. I quickly became the head Sushi Chef which helped me become the man I am today. While rolling Sushi I was at an “action station” which means I have daily interactment with the customers. During the two years of working for the Bistro during my undergrad, they asked me for help maintaining the information system. I replaced the outdated system and replaced it with an existing system which is still running today. After replacing the system, I continued to test, maintain, and improve the system and it became something that I took pride in.

I am a Delti Chi Alumni and the experience within the fraternity taught me a lot of things. I was also a member of the Catholic Christian Ministry which was also very educational. Life within the fraternity taught me how to have courage and convictions to defend the opinions of myself and others. The two memberships also taught me how to work well on a team, how to assign and complete roles and tasks. The last four years in Computer Information Systems have been challenging and very rewarding. I have already been able to implement the skills that I learned while attending Online School University. Looking back to when I was an incoming freshman, I had no clue I would find something I was so passionate about for my future. After having one of the absolute best college experiences by being involved in campus organizations, I know that I am competent with leadership and communication skills. These same leadership and communication skills will assist me in the road to becoming a Systems Analyst in the near future.

lab experiment for ohm’s law, series and parallel resistive circuits

The lab experiment for ohm’s law, series and parallel resistive circuits, was divided into three sections by me and my lab partners to measure the current flow and voltage across a resistor as a function of the supply voltage for the DC supply voltage from 0 to 10 V in steps of 1 V.

The first section of the experiment measured the current flow in a 10 KΩ resistor as a function of the supply voltage for a DC supply voltage from 0 to 10 V in steps of 1 V using a digital multi-meter. From a pool of resistors we measured each of the resistors with a digital multi-meter clipped on both ends of the resistor, in other to pick out the 10 KΩ resistor from the pool. The resistor was connected in series with a DC voltage source, where the voltage was systematically increased from 0 to 10 V in steps of 1 V and the respective current was recorded. Power supply voltage was calculated using the voltage and current readings obtained.

In the second section, we replaced the 10 KΩ resistor with a 8.2 KΩ and 1.8 KΩ resistor in series. Again, we measured each resistor from the pool to find out which one is the 8.2 KΩ and 1.8 KΩ resistor, using a digital multi-meter clipped on both ends of the 8.2 KΩ and 1.8 KΩ resistor respectively. The two resistors were connected in series on a bread board with a DC voltage source, where the voltage was systematically increased across the 1.8 KΩ from 0 to 10 V in steps of 1 V and the respective current was recorded. Power supply voltage was calculated using the voltage and current readings obtained.

Finally in the third section, we replaced the 8.2 KΩ and 1.8 KΩ resistors with a 30 KΩ and 15 KΩ resistors in parallel. The 30 KΩ and 15 KΩ resistors were measured out from the pool of resistors using a digital multi-meter clipped on both ends of the 30 KΩ and 15 KΩ resistor respectively. The two resistors were connected in parallel on a bread board with a DC voltage source, where the voltage was systematically increased from 0 to 10 V in steps of 1 V and the respective current flow was measured in the 15 KΩ resistor. The procedure was repeated, but this time the current flow was measured in the 30 KΩ resistor. Again, the procedure was repeated and the current flow was measured entering the 30 KΩ and 15 KΩ resistor combination in parallel. Power supply voltage was calculated using the voltage and current readings obtained, in each case.

International Marketing

With dramatic growth of once domestic companies into the global market, comes an increasingly higher amount of disputes between countries concerning matters of trade. To solve these matters, agreeing countries have turned to the process of International Dispute Resolution (Chapter 5, Slide 9). A prime example of this would be the current conflict between Japan and China. The dispute comes after a long standing argument over who has sovereignty of the Senkaku islands, also known as the Diaoyu islands, which are located in the East China Sea. Japan’s recent purchase of three of the islands has outraged the population of China and caused protest across the country.

The first step of international dispute resolution, informal resolution, cannot be completed due to the magnitude of the dispute and attitudes of both countries. With no informal resolution, both countries may now enter into an agreement through either mediation (a 3rd-party led, nonbinding agreement between both countries to resolve the dispute), or arbitration (a decision rendered by a 3rd-party in which both countries must agree to). As the dispute continues on with no informal agreement in sight, Japan and China seem to be facing arbitration in the International Court of Justice.

Long Question Scenarios Exercise

BEFORE WORKING THIS EXERCISE – CAREFULLY REVIEW the Long Scenario Question EXAMPLE posted in Moodle. Questions like this will represent a large percentage of the OSDIE-2 grade.

For the following question, use these steps to retrieve and report information pertinent to the off-label use of a medication:
Use the 3-2-1 strategy to research and provide a response to the question, while documenting your search strategy throughout the process. Also, be sure cite (in-text numerical citations) your references as you work through the steps as described below.
  1. First, review ALL of the BIG FOUR tertiary resources and NO OTHERS for Ex. 9 and OSDIE-2.
    1. Use ALL/ONLY the BIG FOUR in the following SPECIFIC AREAS for this exercise and for OSDIE-2:
      1. Micromedex – DrugDEX monographs – Therapeutic Uses
      2. Facts – Off-Label Drug Facts
      3. Clinical Pharmacology – monograph – Indications – Off-Label
      4. Lexicomp – LexiDrugs monograph – Uses
    1. Document your response to the question in the space provided as you review each resource. Though you must review all four resources, you may not find something useful in every one.
    2. While searching within these tertiary resources, if an article is mentioned (cited) that may provide critical information for your answer, be sure to attempt to dig deeper and retrieve the fulltext of the article for the details. I will be checking for this. Remember if you use information from such an article, you must reference it.
    3. It is entirely possible that there is no information to be found in ANY of the tertiary resources; if this is the case, document this in your response for each/all of the four resources. Step 2 has an additional requirement if this is the case.
  1. Use secondary resources (Pubmed and IDIS only) to find at least one fulltext article (primary literature) that helps answer the question. Document any information or conclusions from this article for your response. IMPORTANT: If no information is found in ANY of the tertiary resources, you must find a minimum of TWO (2) fulltext articles to answer the question.
  2. Document a detailed, reproducible Search Strategy throughout the entire process of reviewing resources:
Describe how you used the tertiary resources: how and where information was found; whether or not information was found. For instance, if you review Micromedex and find nothing, document in your response, “No information was found in Micromedex1.
    1. Describe how you used the secondary resources: Search terms, filters, linkouts, etc. What worked/didn’t work?
    2. WORK CITED - Accurate AMA style referencing is not necessary for this exercise, but you must list all references used in numerical order. This is for ease of reference for the grader.
      1. List references in the order in which they appear in the response.
      2. When referencing any of the BIG FOUR tertiary resources used; just write the name (no full citation needed)
      3. List the citations (with PMID#) of all articles used in your response.
      4. Finally, use superscript numerical citations through out your response numbered in correspondence with the references in the WORKS CITED section.
Grading Expectations:
  1. Grades will be determined by how well the above steps are followed to provide a thorough response to the question. Your response must answer the question and must be written in full sentences.
  2. Remember to use the 3-2-1 method to search.
    1. Use ALL/ONLY the BIG FOUR as your tertiary resources
    2. Use ONLY Pubmed and IDIS as your secondary resources to find primary literature
  3. For ease of grading, USE ONLY THE FOLLOWING SPECIFIC AREAS to find off-label uses within the tertiary databases:
    1. Micromedex – DrugDEX monographs – Therapeutic Uses
    2. Facts – Off-Label Drug Facts
    3. Clinical Pharmacology – monograph – Indications – Off-Label
    4. Lexicomp – LexiDrugs monograph – Uses
  4. Document your search strategy as you go. You will be graded on details and reproducibility, but full sentences are not required.
  5. Even if you do not find the answer in a resource or the full-text of an article, document everything you tried so that you will get full credit for your search strategy.
  6. All articles will be verified as full-text; if a reference is just an article abstract, it will not count toward your article requirement in Step 2. You certainly may use information from an article abstract, but remember it will not count toward your full-text article requirement.
  7. Always search databases (especially secondary) using generic drug names.
  8. Safety – Describe tolerability, including any common adverse effects
  9. Efficacy – Describe whether studies show if it works for the use in question.

A 45-year-old female has been diagnosed with aspirin-induced asthma (asthma-intolerant asthma). Her physician wants to treat her with Singulair (montelukast) to prevent aspirin-induced asthma; however, the manufacturer’s label does not provide for aspirin-induced asthma prophylaxis. He wants evidence to make the decision whether to use this medication for this patient.

Using the steps and expectations above, find information that will provide evidence for the use of montelukast for aspirin-induced asthma and answer the following questions (provide responses on the following pages):
  1. What does the literature report about the efficacy (i.e., improved lung function, improved quality of life) of using montelukast to prevent of aspirin-induced asthma?
  1. Describe the ages of the these patients that have been treated with montelukast, as reported in the literature:
  1. Describe your search strategy according to Step 3 above (must be reproducible):
The following response will be provided to the doctor in the above scenario in response to her request:
Document your response to the above questions here:
According to Facts and Comparisons1, patients with known aspirin sensitivity should continue to avoid these agents while being treated with Montelukast.
According to Micheletto C, Tognella S, Visconti M, et al under MICROMEDEX2, they stated that Montelukast significantly improved signs and symptoms associated with persistent rhinitis in patients with aspirin-induced asthma (AIA). In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, 36 non-smoking patients (aged 22 to 52) with AIA suffering from chronic nasal symptoms for approximately 3 years, received either montelukast (n=18) 10 milligrams (mg) or placebo (n=18) daily for 4 weeks.
Also according to Micheletto C3, their article found under PubMed, it states under their conclusion of their free article that “Montelukast 10 mg daily for 4 weeks, but not placebo, improves nasal function and nasal response to Aspirin substantially in ASA-sensitive asthmatics.”
Document search strategy on the following page…
Document your search strategy according to Step 3 above (must be reproducible):
    1. Describe how you used the tertiary resources: how and where information was found; whether or not information was found.
  1. Micromedex: found Drugdex monograph - Montelukast; then I did a search/(control find) on the monograph using the keyword: aspirin; you may also look under the “Therapeutic Use” tab. I found a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study that is dealing with 36 non-smoking patients that are aged from 22-52.
Facts: Only found details about that if patient is sensitive to aspirin, it should be avoided while taking Montelukast to avoid further complications.
    1. Describe how you used all secondary resources: Search terms, filters, linkouts, etc. What worked/didn’t work?
Under PubMed, I used a single citation matcher for Micheletto and Montelukast and it went straight to the article I wanted to look at it. I also found the abstract and the full-article on this citation.
    1. WORKS CITED: List ONLY those references that you used information to provide your response. Be sure your response has in-text superscript numerical citations corresponding with the numerical references below.
  1. Facts and Comparisons
  1. Micheletto C, Tognella S, Visconti M, Pomari C, Trevisan F, Dal Negro RW. Montelukast 10 mg improves nasal function and nasal response to aspirin in ASA-sensitive asthmatics: a controlled study vs placebo. Allergy. 2004 Mar;59(3):289-94. PubMed PMID: 14982510

Accountant- Business Personal Eval

Tell us why you decided to go into your chosen field of study, and how your education reinforced your desire to be an accountant. How do these factors translate into benefits for us should we desire to hire you?

Growing up, I have always had an innate love for math and numbers. When I look at numbers such as a telephone number or a bar code, I instantly try and find a relationship within a set by manipulating them through addition or multiplication. Math continuously proves to be the most enjoyable subject for me because of my natural ability and the challenge it presents. During high school, I attended New York District Literary Rally for Accounting. Being chosen as the student to attend out of my entire school was an honor because the teacher decides the best student fit to go.

 I placed 1st overall in my district and was allowed to proceed on to Louisiana State Literary Rally. After enjoying my Accounting class in high school and placing high at Literary Rally, I verified the instinct to choose Accounting as my field of study for college.
When I first started at CA Tech University, I decided to join a sorority for several reasons. As a well-rounded individual, I wanted to become involved on campus, create new lasting friendships, and devote time to philanthropies. I immediately decided I wanted to take on a leadership position within my sorority, so I applied to become Assistant Treasurer to gain experience within the accounting field. The following year, I was elected to Executive Council serving as Treasurer of Kappa Delta Sorority. Being the Treasurer was time consuming and tedious, but I enjoyed being in a leadership position and using my skills to better my sorority. I had to create a new budget for the year, complete monthly reports, and do all the bookkeeping while working alongside an accountant. I exemplified leadership and social skills through my responsibilities as a Treasurer by communicating with Executive Council about important events, settling monetary issues within my chapter, and speaking in front of over 100 women at each weekly meeting.

Not only have I devoted myself to my sorority, I have also maintained a job during college. I am currently employed at Kanner and Whiteley as a file clerk. Working at the law firm has taught me to be a better business professional and force me to uphold my responsibility. I know how to dress appropriately and conduct myself accordingly in a professional environment. As a file clerk, I am trusted to maintain and organize multidistrict litigations and pull federal court pleadings. I work full time during the summer, and I work 15 hours a week through a remote database while at school. The law firm allows for me to work remotely because I have proved to them my trustworthiness and reliability through my work ethic and product.

In conclusion, I will be the best suited candidate for the accounting position because of my love for the subject and life experiences. I am certain that becoming an accountant will allow me to prosper and is the perfect career path for me. My ability to maintain a 4.0 GPA, work, and be involved on campus shows my responsibility and time management skills. Also, my dedication to being Treasurer of Kappa Delta demonstrates my leadership capabilities and social skills. My credibility is displayed through my employer entrusting in me the ability to work remotely from school. I am confident in my skills which validates my ability to become the perfect employee.

Systems Administrator for BUSN 420 -Personal Evaluation Statement

Tell us why you decided to go into your chosen field of study, and how your education reinforced your desire to be a Systems Administrator. How do these factors translate into benefits for us should we desire to hire you?

There are a few reasons that inspired me to get my degree in Computer Information Systems. As a young child growing up in a huge world with endless opportunities I always had a passion for technology and the security and protection of people and their valuables. Even at a young age I enjoyed interacting with computers. To this day I remember when my family got their first computer. It was in 1997 when we went to the Gateway store and brought the huge white brick computer back when I was 7. 

My parents always told me I was in the middle of everything trying to learn and take charge of how to install the programs. In high school I always enjoyed taking business and computer application classes, and designing simple websites and doing basic programming all came very easy to me. I was fortunate to become a Certified Microsoft Office Specialist by my junior year of high school, an accomplishment which I was very proud of.

As an undergrad at Georgia Tech University I believe that the classes I have taken for my degree were very applicable to concepts and activities that I can bring to this job. My Computer Tools for Business class helped me to interact with computers and computer systems, set up functions, and enter data and then process information. The Principles of Information Systems class helped me to observe and obtain information from different sources. My Introduction to Problem Solving and Programming class has helped to give me a solid foundation on basic programming principles. As an undergrad I am going to run for a leadership position in the organization of AITP which is the Association of Information Technology Professionals. I am a well-rounded individual who both works hard in the work place and in extracurricular activities. I know that I am a team player because I played intramural basketball and softball in my college years. I also participate in a Women’s Leadership Spokesman’s Club put on by my church which I feel is helping to improve my public speaking skills.

Although I have not had any jobs related to my career choice at this point in time I have had work experience that I believe has taught me valuable lessons. I worked for a professional landscape company for a few summers. In that time I learned valuable speaking skills when consulting with clients about their landscape architect. I learned to clarify the points of interest that the clients would desire. Over these past summers I did use my hands, machinery and tools a great deal which also taught me to work hard and how to work well as a team. One very important concept I learned and hold important in my work ethics is the importance of finishing projects on time, and how crucial it is to listen to directions. When you don’t finish your assigned projects or don’t listen to directions you cost work time, money, and the respect of the clients. And as an employee I don’t find this acceptable.

I know that my selected career path is the place where I am supposed to be. I’ve enjoyed every class I have taken at Georgia Tech University that was towards my major in Computer Information Systems. I do believe that if I have the privilege to come on board with this company I can be a positive influence and an asset to the team.
