My First Job Analysis

Improved Essays
The first thing I looked forward to by the end of my first week was to sleep all weekend long, however I have already gotten so use to my work schedule that even on the weekends I woke up early. In Chapter 3, of our reading text discussed is, personal growth and how an internship experience offers you a tremendous opportunity to grow and develop as a person. I came out here two weeks before school started because the job asked me how soon could I start, and I wanted to make sure it was right away. Being up here alone has taught me so much responsibility and makes me feel independent. I think experiences like these are the ones that will help mold me into the woman that I am becoming.
Going into my second week, I felt settled, like this work schedule is my new norm. This job is my first job where I have a consistent work schedule, which makes me feel more secure because I know what to expect. This past Monday was the first time I got to meet the Director of Human Resources in person, she travels so much that she is barely in New York. Although our dresscode is business casual, I made sure to

This project involves the benefits team, what we do is, notify employees’ of changes and updates in their information involving their benefits for the upcoming year. Our benefits team had a meeting with our supervisor on Wednesday and I got to take part in the meeting. Most of the time I was writing down notes because I want to be familiar with what I am doing, although it was alot of information to process, I am confident that I have the overall concept. I am excited to work on multiple projects because I get a taste of everything. For the I-9 project I am involved with the HRIS team, for the open enrollment project I am involved with the benefits team, and for my third project which is a calendar project, I get to work directly with my supervisor and director for all Human

    The second week came and my first assignment was due. It was to tell story, and I was grateful because I knew I had a story to tell. I wrote about the birth of my niece, which was anything but routine. I tried to write it in the same way that I always had, the way that wasn’t exactly to the level I should be at, but one I knew I was capable of. From this point on I knew I was locked in, which meant I would have a paper due every Wednesday from here on out.…

    I designed my schedule at school to fit my needs with work and home life. I am able to complete my classes Monday through Wednesday and work a ten-hour shift on Wednesday after class and Thursday all day as well. This is the tricky part, managing my time during the weekend. Having a girlfriend who is also in school to become a registered nurse, homework is apart of our daily activities spent together Friday through Sunday. The only obstacle to my learning and program goals I am able to see will eventually occur in the future.…

    This portfolio represents my best work, including supporting artifacts, written in the 2015 Fall 2 Semester of EN105 First Year Writing Seminar I: Critical Reading, Writing and Thinking Across Contexts course. The portfolio will take you through my writing journey that I have experienced over the last seven weeks. As I reflect back on this journey, I knew it would be a challenge before the class ever started. However, I had a glimmer of hope due to the writing I do at work and where others admire my business writing. Unfortunately, it didn’t take long for me to realize that my strong business writing was not be beneficial in this class and I had just entered my worst nightmare.…

    I was able to organize what needed to be done by a certain time so I would still be able to discuss a certain project with another employee during lunch or before we headed home for the day. At the conclusion of my internship, my supervisor pointed to my organizational skills as one of the reasons the job opening was offered to me. It was a reassuring feeling to know that something that I take my time with was noticed by management above me. The last thing this internship helped with my educational experience is that it was a massive boost in my self-confidence. In nearly every class I took in college, self-confidence was always a sticking point that every professor touched on at least once.…

    Jekyll/Mr. Hyde transformation” (Ehrenreich 317). When I started working, like Ehrenreich I was my cheerful and happy self but my energy started to give out the longer I worked.

    I will begin by saying that, I cannot believe that we will officially begin this week Spring 2018. When I reflect back on the beginning of my second year of internship, I thought it would take forever to get here. I also thought that this year’s internship would never go by so fast as it has in the past months. I feel that like I just blinked for a second and 2018 was here. I am happy for the break that we had for winter break even if it was two weeks, as it helped me recuperate and come back excited to finish this semester.…

    I think glad I started here at BMC. My teachers have been great so far. I like how we have breakout sessions once a month. These are 30 minute sessions in which we a have our counselor over our program of study come and talk to us to see how we are doing in our classes and to give updates on what’s going in our school and that if we ever have any kind of problems or concerns to come and talk to them. I will have completed my program of study in the spring of 2016 with an associate degree in business of applied…

    I am obligated to relax and remember I have only been in my internship for a month and I will be in my internship for many months ahead. It is ok if I do not grasp all of the information to be a great intern during one day at my internship. It is acceptable to ask questions to your supervisor because as social work student it is normal to want to ask an appropriate question that comes to my mind. It is important for a student to get any information possible out of its professor’s before it is too late to ask more…
