CS204 Professional Presence Notes Unit 9 Discussion: During Unit 1, you had the opportunity to take the Self-Assessment Survey and then you took this assessment again in the Learning Activities area during this unit. Use this information to answer the questions during this unit. You will have the opportunity to reflect on both your strengths and weak areas. Your posts should be in the 100-word range and your responses in the 75-word range. Respond to at least two of your classmates with meaningful comments in accordance with your Syllabus. Topic 1: Many concepts have been covered during this class to give you an opportunity to delve into your professionalism in more depth. After reviewing the results of the survey, what is one area that you feel is a professional strength for you and one area that you continue to need to work on? How do you plan to work on this area to improve it? Response: Strengths I have are professional behaviors like being on time for work, greeting colleagues and showing courtesy, using appropriate communication channels and language, and being able to focus and complete tasks in order of priority. I thought the survey was very general and didn’t take into account some situations that are not absolutely black and white. For example, the question about leaving work right on time. It gave me a “3,” “1” being the best score, for answering that I often leave work promptly when it is time. It seems like the question expects a person to stay after work, or not be so eager to leave work on time. When person has child care until a certain time, it may be necessary to leave work right when it ends to pick up children or make other family appointments. I am not a person who believes that work is more important than any other part of life, so I would not be willing to sacrifice my family for hourly wages. I would not change my answer, nor would I try to “improve” my score. I feel no guilt for fulfilling my family obligations, and I do an excellent job at work. I am willing to go above and beyond if no person is hurt by my actions. Areas I can always improve on are knowledge about my profession and staying informed about changes in laws. Unit 8 Discussion: Professional organizations that are specific to career areas are a common way that professionals stay in touch with current issues in their field. For instance, the Business and Professional Women (BPW) is a common group in many cities. They offer workshops, conferences, and meetings that provide opportunities for training, skill building, and

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
