Technology has helped in our project. We really did not use the blackboard page very much. Mostly we communicated through email. It seemed the easiest and fastest way for us to communicate. We did not have any virtual group meetings. If we did not have email and the internet to communicate it would be extremely hard to line up meetings and communicate throughout our group.

The example we discussed in class the Just memo was overwhelming. It is hard to believe that someone could talk about human life in that manner. They must have no heart to be able to gas another human being. I think that the writer must have felt somewhat guilty as he/she wrote this they must have felt some remorse about what was happening to women and children.

The other memo we discuss about the Ford pinto essentially puts a dollar sign on people's lives. For a mere 11$ more per car they could have fixed the problem that they knew about the whole time. Instead they would rather pay the restitution. This is absurd.

My own ethical principals can be defined in a short sentence. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. I own my own business so ethics is very important to me in all facets of my business.

The presentation that we saw about autism was very informative. It gave sign and symptoms as well as talking about treatments. Autism is such a common disease these days that it was interesting to learn about it.

As far as past experience with online portfolios, I have not had to compile one before. I want to know if you could make the draft due the 25 instead of the 23rd since we will be just coming back from spring break. Worth a shot.

Most of the advice on this site was very informative. There were many things on this site that I did not know about cover letters. Probably the biggest was that when you are writing a cover letter, you are not selling yourself. You are selling what you can do for your customers. This makes a lot of since because employers don't care really about you they just want you to be able to give what the customer wants.
The fact about most employers reading the resume first was surprising to me. But it does make since; why should they waste their time reading a letter if the applicant doesn't have the credentials needed for the job.
I also did not know that applicants should kind of like a deadline on their cover letter. That if they aren't contacted by this date then they will contact the employer. Again though this makes since that employers are so busy that if the applicant wants the job they should make the effort to contact them. I thought this was a helpful site and I will be using it to write my cover letter.

The visit from the client went well. She was very informative and open to our ideas. So far we have a few ideas, but nothing is definite. My biggest concern is that we will not be able to decide on what our project should be. But I am confident in my group and feel sure that we will have a successful project.

Yes, these are some of the biggest mistakes that someone can make during an interview. I have had a couple job interviews in my life. Thankfully, they both have been very informal and the interviewer was very easy to talk too. I was very nervous before I got to the interview, but my nerves quickly calmed and the interview went quite well. To be well prepared for an interview people should make sure they know some information about the job they are interviewing for. They should also come prepared and be on time, those are two main things that can help a interview go well.

100 Days until graduation.

On Thursday January 29 which is today, I am 100 days from graduation. I am not a fan of school and never have been. Since I was a little boy I have always looked forward to the day when I didn't have to go to school. And 100 days from now I will be done with the major amount of school that I will ever have to go too. I can't wait to walk across that stage and move on to the "real world". I know that one day I will look back on these times here at Clemson and miss them, but that will not be any time soon. I am thankful for being able to finish school and graduating.
