PostSubject: Being a Web Designer   Thu Jul 02, 2009 9:35 pm

What is a Web Design?
According to a common online encyclopedia, Web Designing is the skill of creating presentations of content (usually hypertext or hypermedia) that is delivered to an end-user through the World Wide Web, by way of web browser or other Web-enabled software like Internet television clients, microblogging clients and RSS readers and therefore, the person who creates the web sites is the Web Designer.

Technology nowadays is expanding at an increasingly high speed due to the thriving expansion of the Internet. The World Wide Web has taken a strong hold on the vast majority of businesses and organizations, becoming a principal means of marketing and providing information. The number of Web sites in use increases every minute-skyrocketing job opportunities for Web site developers and designers - Webmasters. Today's companies seek professionals with the skills and training to produce effective Web sites that can attract the billions of consumers surfing the Web every day.

Being a web designer it is not an easy task. Before creating a web site and uploading a website you have to plan eagerly in order that your project will be done properly. Thoroughly considering the audience or target market, as well as defining the purpose and deciding what content will be developed are extremely important.

Part of the web designer's task is to create pages that can be used on any type of server (a central computer in a network that stores files and provides these files to individual computers) and viewed with any type of browser (the software that enables people to access the World Wide Web). To do this, a web designer must be familiar with issues of browser/server compatibility, including which browsers and servers work well together and which ones do not. In addition, the designer must know computer languages such as Javascript, which can be used to create web pages that are compatible with a wide range of hardware and software.

Website design is comprised of many steps. Depending on the employer and the designer's skills, typical duties may involve:

* Translating a client's marketing or informational content into a functional website.
* Mapping or outlining a website's structural content.
* Creating or editing images and graphics for website use.
* Determining all coding requirements for site creation including: e-commerce capability, forms and specialized
scripts.
* Creating templates of approved website layout.
* Coding website using HTML, or GUI design software.
* Coordinating with programmers for specialized scripts.
* Creating verbal content for the website or using approved content from the client.
* Integrating verbal content with site design for final product.
* Posting completed site to internet server using FTP software.
* Making changes to the site directed by client.
* Submitting completed site to search engines.

Some web designers possess all the skills listed above, while others only possess a portion of them.

If you have the right technology background and can learn new software quickly, a career as a web designer can be very lucrative. Web design skills are important in every industry now and they afford motivated people the chance to run their own business.

PostSubject: Assingment 2[HRM]   Fri Jul 03, 2009 3:15 pm

Jeremiah 29:11
To qoute my Future.
this is my life verse.



Assignment 2[HRM]

First and foremost i'm really anxious about my Studies, the course i have chosen and what the future holds for me.
but i know Jesus already wrote my future job in his diaries.

About a future job for myself,
I choose to be a SYSTEM ANALYST.
to get started lets Discuss and Define what ia a System Analyst is..

A systems analyst is responsible for researching, planning, coordinating and recommending software and system choices to meet an organization's business requirements. The systems analyst plays a vital role in the systems development process. A successful systems analyst must acquire four skills: analytical, technical, managerial, and interpersonal. Analytical skills enable systems analysts to understand the organization and its functions, which helps him/her to identify opportunities and to analyze and solve problems. Technical skills help systems analysts understand the potential and the limitations of information technology. The systems analyst must be able to work with various programming languages, operating systems, and computer hardware platforms. Management skills help systems analysts manage projects, resources, risk, and change. Interpersonal skills help systems analysts work with end users as well as with analysts, programmers, and other systems professionals.

Because they must write user requests into technical specifications, the systems analysts are the liaisons between vendors and the IT professionals of the organization they represent[1] They may be responsible for developing cost analysis, design considerations, and implementation time-lines. They may also be responsible for feasibility studies of a computer system before making recommendations to senior management.

Basically, a systems analyst performs the following tasks:

 Interact with the customers to know their requirements
 Interact with designers to convey the possible interface of the software
 Interact/guide the coders/developers to keep track of system development
 Perform system testing with sample/live data with the help of testers
 Implement the new system
 Prepare High quality Documentation
reference:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Systems_analyst

Nature of the Work

All organizations rely on computer and information technology to conduct business and operate efficiently. Computer systems analysts help organizations to use technology effectively and to incorporate rapidly changing technologies into their existing systems. The work of computer systems analysts evolves rapidly, reflecting new areas of specialization and changes in technology.

Computer systems analysts solve computer problems and use computer technology to meet the needs of an organization. They may design and develop new computer systems by choosing and configuring hardware and software. They may also devise ways to apply existing systems’ resources to additional tasks. Most systems analysts work with specific types of computer systems—for example, business, accounting, or financial systems or scientific and engineering systems—that vary with the kind of organization. Analysts who specialize in helping an organization select the proper system software and infrastructure are often called system architects. Analysts who specialize in developing and fine-tuning systems often are known as systems designers.

reference:http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos287.htm


How do you get ready? Back to Top

Many computer systems analysts have a bachelor's degree in computer science, information science, or management information systems. Some analysts get college degrees in other subjects. Then, they take computer classes and get computer experience.

Some analysts also have a master's degree in business. This helps them to understand the types of computers that businesses need.

Analysts need to understand computers, math, and planning. They need to know math so that they can solve problems and figure out how much computer power different systems would use.

Logical thinking skills are also important.

Analysts need good speaking and writing skills, too, so that they can explain their systems and give good instructions.

What awaits me in the future........ Question Razz

Struggling.That's how i describe my college days now. That's why i must finish my noble degree and be someone i deserve to in the future. Be someone that is worth sacrificing for today.

Laughing Laughing

That someone is being an IT Manager of a leading company. My sooner company would be providing an independent IT management and had its mission of putting the customer's best interests first.
Razz Razz

As an IT manager, i would:

Arrow Plans, organizes and directs through staff involved in information technology.

Arrow Participates in developing annual IT budget; monitors expenditures for appropriate levels and cash flow; approves budget expenditures on an ongoing basis. Reviews contracts, grants, budgets and other items to assist in evaluating implementing and supporting appropriate technologies.

I have my supervisory duties which includes:

Arrow Staffing
Arrow Career development and performance management
Arrow Safety and compliance
Arrow Training and development
Arrow Outsourcing
Arrow Budget administration and resource allocation

i would also,
Arrow Participates in the development and implementation of Department goals, policies and priorities.

Arrow Develops and manages toward organization goals and objectives.

Arrow Manages information technology infrastructure, architecture, systems, networks, software and resources across multiple platforms.

Arrow Participates in the development and Manages standards, procedures and practices.

Arrow Coordinates problem solving, conflict resolution, escalations, restart and recovery.

Arrow Meets and consults with customers and vendors regarding service delivery needs.

Arrow Prepares or supervises the preparation of special studies and reports. Wink Wink Wink

But in general terms, managers are usually responsible to ensure that the people assigned to them are doing their tasks correctly. The definition of "correctly" is where there is a good degree of variation from job to job, but it usually involves managing a budget for the people assigned to the manager, ensuring that the tasks of those people are completed on whatever schedule has been established, working through personnel issues like training if necessary, salary issues, bad performance.

Managers are responsible for managing other people, whether it be a small team or a large department.

They are responsible for the performance of these employees, making sure that the employees complete their duties in a timely and accurate manner. Depending on the company or organization, managers may have the ability to hire and fire employees, or at least have significant input into these decisions.

In many companies, there are several tiers, or levels, of management. Managers supervise employees at one level but may have to report to higher management as well. A good manager has respect for all of his or her employees, and understands how to encourage and motivate employees in a positive way. If a manager is knowledgeable in his or her field but is not work or communicate well with other employees, he or she will often be an ineffective manager.

I'll be that manager that manages a couple of employees, a bundle of people maybe? lol! lol!

sooner or.........soon!I'll be that someone. By hook or by croak. lol! lol!

PostSubject: Future Job   Sun Jul 05, 2009 12:25 am

My envisioned future job…Ü


For our second assignment in HRM we were tasked to develop a job description for a job we want to hold in the future.
I really find this assignment interesting because I am free to imagine myself on the future. haha Actually when I first read of this assignment, there were so many kinds of jobs that popped onto my head. It’s fun to imagine things specially what will you become in the future but it is more fun and fulfilling when you actually bring this to reality. Yeah!

It’s hard for me to choose one specific job I want for the future because there’s a lot of jobs that comes out of my mind. Hehe.. So many IT related jobs I had thought and some are not. Even before taking up this course I have always thought of myself as an IT professional. hAha But there are many kinds of job available for an IT professional. I can’t actually think of one specific job but I somewhat want to see myself in the future with a job in the line of graphics designing. From those two it’s pretty much obvious that I like things in line with arts and designs.

I looked for definitions of the jobs I wanted to hold in the future and these are the following:
Graphic Design jobs involve working with employees (in-house) or external customers to create, printed collateral, web design layouts, banners, advertisements and many other high quality designs.Duties generally include using desktop publishing and other specialized computer software to design, organize, and prepare a variety of text, illustrative and graphics materials, and perform related tasks as determined to be necessary.A Degree in Art, Marketing, Graphic Design and/or Visual Communications, or equivalent work experience is usually required. Graphic Design jobs tend to require experience in project planning, computer proficiency, knowledge of the production process, excellent communication skills, and the ability to work individually or in a group setting. A good eye for typography, proficiency on both a PC and MAC platforms and a high level of knowledge in multiple design programs are a plus. “
http://www.teksystems.com/Careers/Graphic-Design-Jobs.aspx



affraid Graphic designers—or graphic artists—plan, analyze, and create visual solutions to communications problems. They find the most effective way to get messages across in print, electronic, and film media using a variety of methods such as color, type, illustration, photography, animation, and various print and layout techniques. Graphic designers develop the overall layout and production design of magazines, newspapers, journals, corporate reports, and other publications. They also produce promotional displays, packaging, and marketing brochures for products and services, design distinctive logos for products and businesses, and develop signs and signage systems—called environmental graphics—for business and government. An increasing number of graphic designers also develop material for Internet Web pages, interactive media, and multimedia projects. Graphic designers also may produce the credits that appear before and after television programs and movies.”
http://www.bls.gov/oco/pdf/ocos090.pdf

Just from the description of what is a graphic designer, I became more interested and eager of becoming one (hope so!). If I am to have this job I would really enjoy doing it in service of the clients I would have in the future (Can’t wait of “that” future) lol! . To be a graphic designer you must have patience and perseverance of what you are doing because developing a method of designing requires much time, attention and hard work for it to produce a good and efficient work of art. But before I could become one, this time as a student I should of course do well on my studies and learn in advance of different softwares and methods on how to create excellent designs. I believe the future lies on our own hands and guided by our Heavenly Father.

"COMPUTER CRACKER"


...A cracker is define as " someone who breaks into someone else's computer system, often on a network; bypasses passwords or licenses in computer programs; or in other ways intentionally breaches computer security " by the site:

http://searchsecurity.techtarget.com/sDefinition/0,,sid14_gci211852,00.html

...A cracker can be doing this for profit, maliciously, for some altruistic purpose or cause, or because the challenge is there. Some breaking-and-entering has been done ostensibly to point out weaknesses in a site's security system.

...But if I would able to dissect a new definition by this illegal/inappropriate profession, it would be, a knowledgeable information seeker of ones vulnerable systems. They are the one who are the keys on searching and breaking security systems of ones enemies. They are genius programmers for they spent most of their time, on destroying a system, and not on how to create them. And crackers are gifted individuals of having the free admission on
gathering data and capturing information without the interference of the securities.

...Someday, if i would given a chance, I would force myself to grab the opportunity of being one of them, because for how unique it is, the same
thing it sparks my curiosity in life...


...By the way "Crackers" is much different as "Hackers"

Hacker vs. Cracker

Language is a fluid thing. In days of old (in Internet Time) a hacker was a person who studied for possible vulnerabilities in a system and reported the results. A cracker was a term for someone who did bad things to a system once they discovered some vulnerability or came upon the work of a hacker’s results. http://www.hackers.com/ is on a mission to be a seeker of knowledge without the destructive use of this information. As people who need data to successfully perform in a Security+ role, the goal of hackers.com is in alignment with our needs. Given that, we understand the need to help show language differentiation and support their goals. Hacker is a knowledge seeker. A cracker is the bad guy seeking to hurt you.

JOB Title: Database Administrator


JOB Description: A Database Administrator is the one who work with database management systems software and determine way to organize and store data. . They identify user needs and set up new computer databases. In many cases, database administrators must integrate data from outdated systems into a new system. In an organization, a database administrator ensures the organization’s database effectiveness of its performance. It also includes understanding of the database’s platform and adds new user to the system. Because today, many databases are connected to the internet, he (database administrator) also plans and coordinates security measures with network administrators.

The following are a database administrator typical work responsibilities:

• establishing the needs of users and monitoring user access and security;
• monitoring performance and managing parameters to provide fast query responses to 'front end' users;
• mapping out the ‘conceptual design’ for a planned database in outline;
• considering both 'back end' organization of data and 'front end' accessibility for end users;
• refining the ‘logical design’ so that it can be translated into a specific data model;
• further refining the ‘physical design’ to meet system storage requirements;
• installing and testing new versions of the database management system (DBMS);
• maintaining data standards, including adherence to the Data Protection Act;
• writing database documentation, including data standards, procedures and definitions for the data dictionary (‘metadata’);
• controlling access permissions and privileges;
• developing, managing and testing backup and recovery plans;
• ensuring that storage, archiving, backup and recovery procedures are functioning correctly;
• capacity planning;
• working closely with IT project managers, database programmers and web developers;
• communicating regularly with technical, applications and operational staff to ensure database integrity and security;
• Commissioning and installing new applications.

Because of the increasing levels of hacking and the sensitive nature of data stored, security and recoverability or 'disaster recovery' have become increasingly important aspects of the work.

The Database Administrator classification is distinguished from the Database Designer/Information System Analyst classification by the extensive knowledge, experience and complex technical skills required. Further differences include the supervision of database and transaction log backups, and the maintenance and monitoring of database server performance.

There are a lot advantages when you engaged in this job. Database administrators may advance into managerial positions, such as chief technology officer, on the basis of their experience managing data and enforcing security. Computer specialists with work experience and considerable expertise in a particular subject or a certain application may find lucrative opportunities as independent consultants or may choose to start their own computer consulting firms.
Technological advances come so rapidly in the computer field that continuous study is necessary to keep one’s skills up to date. Employers, hardware and software vendors, colleges and universities, and private training institutions offer continuing education. Additional training may come from professional development seminars offered by professional computing societies.

So, as a foot note, I always hope and ambition to be a Database Administrator. A tricky and challenging job but still I know my capacity and hopefully be a Database Administrator someday.

Exclamation A Web Designer Exclamation





A Web Designer is a person that creates and arranges the pages that make up a website. Web Designers often have to balance how a page looks versus how a web page functions, which can involve some compromises.

Web designer is responsible to design the overall layout and look of the web site. This covers the area from design small and meaningful icons or creating logos to complete the web layout and present it in html format. Web designer is the one who knows which colors to select, and what images should be placed where, to greatly communicate the business sense of client.

How to make page attractive for target audience?
Whether it demands some flash intro or some other flash effects or the simple site will present the elegance of client’s organization?
Which data is to be displayed at right place to get the best required viewer’s concentration?


Web Designer’s role in the whole website making is to answer the above question practically by making relative web contents.


Moreover, a web designer may take part in the initial planning of a Web site, meeting with the client to discuss ideas for the layout and organization of the site, the types of colors or images to use (photos, illustrations, videos, etc.), and other matters concerning overall graphic design.

Once the basic concept is agreed upon, the web designer must collect the text documents and images that will appear on the page and convert them into a form in which they can be viewed. This requires a mastery of HTML (hypertext markup language), the computer language used to create web pages. The designer must also have knowledge of the most current HTML extensions—programs that make it possible to add special features to web pages such as animations and interactive surveys. Because a Web site may incorporate a variety of different functions, including clickable e-mail contacts or the ability to download files to a computer, the designer must have a working knowledge of FTP (file transfer protocol) and other programs that enable these functions to work.




Web designers must have an understanding of software functionality as well as graphic design skills to create successful Web pages.

Part of the web designer's task is to create pages that can be used on any type of server (a central computer in a network that stores files and provides these files to individual computers) and viewed with any type of browser (the software that enables people to access the World Wide Web). To do this, a web designer must be familiar with issues of browser/server compatibility, including which browsers and servers work well together and which ones do not. In addition, the designer must know computer languages such as Javascript, which can be used to create web pages that are compatible with a wide range of hardware and software.

Because web designers work with a client or web producer to develop and refine ideas, they must have strong verbal and visual communications skills. Designers should be able to listen closely to the client and create pages that reflect what the client is looking for. They also need to be flexible because they may be called upon to change their designs. Since Web sites are constantly updated to remain current, a designer has to be able to work well under the pressure of tight deadlines and changing demands.



Idea Career Path

A Web Designer may progress in seniority within the Web Design function. They may also progress within a marketing communications function, depending on their skills and interests.

A Web Designer is very different from a Web Developer. A Web Developer works more on the server side development, web server configuration, and web server security. In order to become a Website Developer, a Web Designer would need to learn additional programming languages and methodologies, such as Object Oriented design and Java programming.

Idea Web Designer Job Description

* To be fully responsible for the layout, visual appearance and usability of the company website, ensuring that brand continuity is maintained.






Idea Duties and Responsibilities

* To design Web sites and ensure that they are visually effective and easy to access.
* Liaising closely with the customer or client at the design stage to answer questions such as: why is the site needed, who is the target audience, who are the leading competitors, etc.
* Advising the client on the categories and information needed to construct the site.
* Designing a draft site for client approval or modification.
* Develop and maintain the company’s intranet that will provide an accurate and immediate source of information to all employees.
* Writing web pages in a combination of codes such as hypertext mark-up language (HTML), JavaScript, CSS, Flash.
* Design and distribute newsletters and other documents relating to the website and the intranet.
* Conduct presentations, internally and externally, to promote the company web site and intranet.
* Testing the web sites for functionality in different browsers and at different resolutions.
* To upload the websites on to the Internet.


Idea Getting the Job

As more companies develop their own Web sites, web designer openings can be found in classified ads in local newspapers, magazines, and on the Internet itself. Quite often, web designers begin their careers as graphic designers or layout artists for advertising firms or publishing companies. After learning the appropriate computer skills, they can transfer their artistic experience to the online world.

Prospective web designers should put together a portfolio of their work to show to potential employers. Many web designers are freelancers who sell their services to clients on a consulting or contractual basis. Self-employed web designers often establish a personal page on the World Wide Web that showcases their design skills for potential customers.

What would I become?

A good story line, nice graphics and characters, unique animation schemes and a bug-less programs is what a good game holds. The story of the games must reach the player’s mind as if it was somewhat real or life-like thus, making the game interesting. Graphics and the compilation of arts that moves through animation are the things that make it fun and a bug-less program is what keeps the player’s patience and makes them want to reach the goal of the game. Common game story line may involve strategic games, word games, dress up game and escape games, which is one of my favorites. Games enables player to be in control of the game thus, letting them act as the main character of the game. Through this gamers will be able to develop quick thinking to win the game.

Games, particularly computer games also called video games, were introduced as a new kind of entertainment on the year 1971. The growth of technology has made it more popular. As years pass, many kinds of computer games have been developed including LAN or local area network and online games. LAN games can be played on everyone’s desktop. Online games can be played with the aid of internet, this way a certain player can play with another player no matter how many miles they’re apart. These games have even reached the cell phones (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_video_games).

The ones who make and develop games are called games developer or games programmer. The job needs a vast and wide range of imagination thus, making it possible to create a unique story and characters. A good skill in arts and animation would make the things on the developers mind to come into life. The sound effects can make the game exciting. This also helps to catch the people’s eyes because a good graphics is a big impact on how the game will sell. Of course, the most important skill to have is knowledge with regards to programming language such as, C++, Java and any other programming language. A good skill in arithmetic will turn your program to become bug-less.

A game developer meets problems during and after producing the games, thus the most important attitude a developer can have is patience. This will enable him to find and correct bugs that are found during or after the game have been produced. The pressure of meeting deadline may be stressful but, this is just one thing a good developer should overcome because a simple bug on the game will destroy the game thus, making the game boring and unfair for those who doesn’t know the bug yet, which will push them to stop playing or choosing another game, which are better than the one you have just developed.

I both love arts and anime so I guess a games developer would be the best job for me in the near future. I would love to be part of a team that creates a new kind of game. Since I am a type of person who doesn’t want to be exposed in unfamiliar crowd, a job like this would fit me best. Another thing is, I would be able to give out my talent and skills with teammates, whom I already know and comfortable with. With this kind of profession, I can also work alone and I’d be able to work at home then, just sell my developed game to those who are interested.

PostSubject: my FUTURE job...   Sun Jul 05, 2009 11:39 pm

my FUTURE JOB_______________________________________


For assignment 2 in Human Resource Management 1, we are tasked to think of the future job and provide description to your desired job. I find this assignment quite interesting for it is always an inspiration of every individual to land a job immediately after graduation. But sometimes it gets frustrating when we cannot find an immediate job for ourselves as there are many points to consider and sometimes it leads to a so-called job-mismatch.

In my case, I really have that great desire to land a job as soon as I acquire my degree of preference to satisfy my needs to be an effective individual in the field of Information Technology.

I envision myself as an IT Manager with specialization in knowledge Managing. Choosing for a right job is a matter of preference with reference to your skills, your capacity to hold that certain job to boost your personality and excel in the field you are in. It doesn’t matter at all, that you acquire a degree when you are not capable to work. There appear to have instances like this. Why not divert to a job that do less in the field which you think you are not capable but do more in the things you think you are in considering that it doesn’t deviate the degree you are holding in short it is still relevant to the degree you are holding. This is just my sentiments on what is happening in the community nowadays.

Anyway, let us review what an IT Manager is. What an IT manager typically do?

Information technology (IT) managers plan, administer and review the acquisition, development, maintenance and use of computer and telecommunications systems within organizations. The IT manager is often the most senior person in the IT department and in large organizations may be called the IT Director or Chief Information Office.

monkey Duties and Tasks…

IT managers may perform the following tasks:

* work out current and future IT needs by consulting with people at all levels about the current work systems and deciding how improvements could be made
* analyze the information needs of an organization and develop technological solutions to satisfy those needs
* prepare or direct IT policy and plan strategy development
* direct activities to select and install major IT facilities
* oversee the provision of training for users and clients
* direct the integration of IT operations, computer hardware, operating systems, communications, software applications and data processing
* work out priorities for systems developments, maintenance and operations
* control the security aspects of IT systems

http://www.myfuture.edu.au/services/default.asp?FunctionID=5050&ASCO=122411A#Duties

monkey Specialization…

Depending on the size and complexity of an organization’s IT function, there may be an opportunity for some role specialization. In my case I want to specialize Knowledge Manager. A Knowledge Manager works to make sure that an organization’s staff is up to date with recent developments and thinking. I want to practice such specialization, for I want a work that interacts directly to the staffs, and constituents.

http://www.myfuture.edu.au/services/default.asp?FunctionID=9998&Type=Specialisation&Code=12427

monkey Principle Responsibilities...

Among the responsibilities of the Knowledge Manager is to manage the creation and delivery of IT (and/or business) knowledge, and, to support the utilization of this accumulated information by both the internal and external end-user communities. This may include any or all of the following duties and capabilities:

* Understanding the end-user’s information needs,
* Coordinating who is responsible for each knowledge asset,
* Where appropriate, communicating knowledge requirements to service providers,
* Planning and managing the delivery of knowledge projects, communicating the availability of knowledge to the end-user community,
* Monitoring the use of the knowledge assets and measuring the business value of the knowledge to the end-user community.

http://it.toolbox.com/wiki/index.php/Knowledge_Manager

monkey Personal Requirements...

* aptitude for leadership
* able to influence peers, clients and suppliers
* able to explain complex concepts clearly
* able to work out and address clients' needs
* able to accept a significant level of responsibility and accountability.

http://www.myfuture.edu.au/services/default.asp?FunctionID=5050&ASCO=122411A#Duties

In order for me to realize the job i envisioned for myself, I have to work harder to be as effective as what an IT Manager should be.

Thinking twice about a career in the FUTURE? bounce

flower I.T. is everywhere. Every industry, from marketing to engineering uses I.T... Most large companies have their own in house I.T. department, as do governments, and even some NGO’s. And being an IT student, thinking about my future job is one of my concerns. Anyway, I got the idea on what would be the right term of my possible job in the near future through surfing the net on the hot jobs for the IT graduates. I have read a lot IT jobs, their descriptions, their qualifications, the salary ranges and many more. But before I have decided to choose a job for me, I first examine myself. The possible things that I can do in the future and the interest I had in mind. Well, I’m not really good at something. I can say that I’m an average person. I don’t have a particular field. But the good thing in me is that I can learn fast. And I have the confidence of honesty, hard work, perseverance and I can handle responsibility at some point. Hehehe. I love you

flower Well, born to be an ambitious gal, I would like to be held responsible for the design, development, modification, programming and implementation of software applications, databases, enterprise reporting and analysis solutions. I would like also doing the blueprint for a design which ultimately will get physically built on a machine. Being the one who performed the initial design work that enables production systems and applications to use data and drive business processes, I would like to maintain an operating systems, business applications, mid-range server hardware, local and wide area network hardware and software, security tools, Web servers, e-mail systems and PCs. I would like to handle all aspects of IT security, like securing Wi-Fi networks, handling offsite storage of backup tapes, establishing policies for lost laptops and much more creating and implementing corporate IT security practices and ensuring that employees follow those procedures. I would like to play a lead role in small scale IS projects and an active role in large scale projects and will provide support to other IS staff when necessary. I would like also to be the one who oversee the process and methodology that is in place, identify best practices to ensure a successful project. I love you

flower Wow! What a wonderful feeling to think of the future is in my hand. Putting my self in one of those prestigious jobs that I have read in the internet is like heaven. But anyway, it’s not impossible if God permits. We just don’t know I would be a Project Manager, System Administrator, Data modeler, Applications Architect, Software analyst, IT Security Manager etc. We can’t really tell. Maybe one of these coming years, I’ll be managing my own business. Or I’ll be working in one of the biggest and famous company outside or inside the country. Or I’ll bring the name of famous innovations in a fast growing world of technology. I would simply want to develop something that would bear my name. Would it be in games, web, anything that would help the progress of the society. Or maybe I became a plain house wife and just taking care with my future family. Whatever may happen will be twin with good lucks, and God’s grace. I love you

Database administrator



A database administrator (DBA) is a person who is responsible for the environmental aspects of a database. The role of a database administrator has changed according to the technology of database management systems (DBMSs) as well as the needs of the owners of the databases. For example, although logical and physical database designs are traditionally the duties of a database analyst or database designer, a DBA may be tasked to perform those duties.

Duties
The duties of a database administrator vary and depend on the job description, corporate and Information Technology (IT) policies and the technical features and capabilities of the DBMS being administered. They nearly always include disaster recovery (backups and testing of backups), performance analysis and tuning, data dictionary maintenance, and some database design.

Some of the roles of the DBA may include

Installation of new software — It is primarily the job of the DBA to install new versions of DBMS software, application software, and other software related to DBMS administration. It is important that the DBA or other IS staff members test this new software before it is moved into a production environment.

Configuration of hardware and software with the system administrator — In many cases the system software can only be accessed by the system administrator. In this case, the DBA must work closely with the system administrator to perform software installations, and to configure hardware and software so that it functions optimally with the DBMS.

Security administration — One of the main duties of the DBA is to monitor and administer DBMS security. This involves adding and removing users, administering quotas, auditing, and checking for security problems.

Data analysis — The DBA will frequently be called on to analyze the data stored in the database and to make recommendations relating to performance and efficiency of that data storage. This might relate to the more effective use of indexes, enabling "Parallel Query" execution, or other DBMS specific features.

Database design (preliminary) — The DBA is often involved at the preliminary database-design stages. Through the involvement of the DBA, many problems that might occur can be eliminated. The DBA knows the DBMS and system, can point out potential problems, and can help the development team with special performance considerations.

Data modeling and optimization — By modeling the data, it is possible to optimize the system layouts to take the most advantage of the I/O subsystem.

Responsible for the administration of existing enterprise databases and the analysis, design, and creation of new databases.

o Data modeling, database optimization, understanding and implementation of schemas, and the ability to interpret and write complex Structured Query Language (SQL) queries

o Proactively monitor systems for optimum performance and capacity constraints

o Establish standards and best practices for SQL

o Interact with and coach developers in SQL scripting


I want to become a Database Administrator in the future for when I first took the subject Database Analysis and Design 1 (DBAD1), I was amazed and became very interested on the said subject though it was quite hard to understand the topics especially at the analysis part. My willingness to become a Database Administrator was first brought up to life when we had our final project in DBAD 1 which is to create a database system. It was so hard to finish because of the fact that we had only a little background and knowledge on making systems especially that it was our first time to take that subject. But with the help of my brother, he taught me the basics and techniques of creating an efficient database system and I really feel so comfortable and interested on what I was doing on that time. Then it all started, my dreams of becoming a Database Administrator someday.

The best changes often start as a single, simple thought. Think big, and discover the ways to make your dreams real. With all my strength, courage, and confidence in every experience in which I really stop to look fear in many faces. I must do the things in which I think can do.

A Database is an integrated collection of logically related records or files that is stored in a computer system which consolidates records previously stored in separate files into a common pool of data records that provides data for many applications. A Database is a collection of information that is organized so that it can easily be accessed, managed, and updated. In one view, databases can be classified according to types of content: bibliographic, full-text, numeric, and images. The structure is achieved by organizing the data according to a database model. The model that is most commonly used today is the relational model. Other models such as the hierarchical model and the network model use a more explicit representation of relationships.

Programmer and Wed Developer

Whats the work and essence of a programmer?

A programmer is someone who writes computer software. The term computer programmer can refer to a specialist in one area of computer programming or to a generalist who writes code for many kinds of software. One who practices or professes a formal approach to programming may also be known as a programmer analyst. The term programmer can be used to refer to a software developer, software engineer, computer scientist, or software analyst. However, members of these professions typically possess other software engineering skills, beyond programming; for this reason, the term programmer is sometimes considered an insulting or derogatory oversimplification of these other professions. This has sparked much debate amongst developers, analysts, computer scientists, programmers, and outsiders who continue to be puzzled at the subtle differences in these occupations.

Those proficient in computer programming skills may become famous, though this regard is normally limited to software engineering circles. Many of the most notable programmers are often labeled hackers. Programmers often have or project an image of individualist geekdom, resistance to "suits" (referring to both business suits, literally, and figuratively to the "Establishment"), controls and conformity.

Essence of Web Developer
A web developer is responsible for programming the functionality of a web site. So while a requirements analyst
is tasked with determining what a web site should do, the web developer
figures out how it is going to do it and then writes the necessary
programming code. Much of this programming code is behind the scenes
and not visible to the user.
However, a web developer may also be responsible for the code that
the user sees.

PostSubject: Re: Assignment 2 (Due: before July 09, 2009, 13:00hrs)   Tue Jul 07, 2009 4:53 pm



Think of the future; develop a job description for a job you would like to hold.
This was the instruction for our second assignment in Human Resource Management.


Whenever I think of my future, I always get this indescribable feeling and mixed emotions. I’ll be nervous, excited, sad and happy. I have reasons for that though.

I always got the vision of myself having a business suit and working in the office or the other way around, traveling around the world. I really had a dream of a good job and a good salary but I can’t really choose what particular job is that. All I want is to succeed in the career I’ll choose.

When I’m in elementary, I thought I would be teacher but only in high school that I discovered I’m don’t suit in the profession of teaching. Since then, I became undecided until our graduation came. Once, the words Information Technology filled my mind. So I came to decide on taking it as a course. With the influence of my parents and my likeness in the study of computers, I really took it.

I never knew studying IT is this hard. It is like journeying a dark path with a bright destination. I really find it hard especially in programming subjects. For two years of studying the course, I came with the positive now, negative later view. I once thought if I am really destined to the course. I only the realized that programming is not the only subject tackled in IT. So, I strived hard until I reach this year. Maybe I’ll just improve my weaknesses and discover my strengths in IT.

Since I’m an IT student and I’m striving to graduate as an IT, of course, I should also have an IT-related course. Honestly, I don’t have definite decision to what particular job it is.

There are so many IT-related jobs out there. Some of these are .Net developers, Project manage, data modeler, Software Implementation Analyst, Database Administrator, IT auditor, help desk, Messaging Administrator, Network Manager, Senior IT auditor, Senior Web Developer and a lot more.

Among the above mentioned IT job titles, I’m getting interested with Data Modeler, Database Administrator, IT auditor and Help Desk.

Data Modeler is considered as aerospace engineers when database administrators are compared to as jet pilots. According to David Van De Voort, principal human capital consultant with Mercer, a consulting firm. "They are in the business of creating data designs, defining relationships between data fields," he says. "They're doing the blueprint for a design which ultimately will get physically built on a machine."

IT auditors test and evaluate IT systems and controls, and make recommendations for improvements.

Help desk. Help desk tier one professionals take initial inquiries and manage simple hardware, software or network problems, while tier two analysts resolve more complex issues, and tier three individuals manage the most difficult challenges that couldn’t be fixed earlier.

Among these four above mentioned interests, my first option is really to a Database Administrator.

Database Administrator is responsible for installing, backing up, testing, securing and making changes to production databases within an IT environment. They work on ongoing development projects with developers and architects and, increasingly, with business-side workers. They also maintain operations on a day-to-day basis.

Duties

The duties of a database administrator vary and depend on the job description, corporate and Information Technology (IT) policies and the technical features and capabilities of the DBMS being administered. They nearly always include disaster recovery (backups and testing of backups), performance analysis and tuning, data dictionary maintenance, and some database design.

Some of the roles of the DBA may include;

* Installation of new software — It is primarily the job of the DBA to install new versions of DBMS software, application software, and other software related to DBMS administration.

* Configuration of hardware and software with the system administrator — In many cases the system software can only be accessed by the system administrator. .

* Security administration — One of the main duties of the DBA is to monitor and administer DBMS security.

* Data analysis — The DBA will frequently be called on to analyze the data stored in the database and to make recommendations relating to performance and efficiency of that data storage.

* Database design (preliminary) — The DBA is often involved at the preliminary database-design stages.

* Data modeling and optimization — By modeling the data, it is possible to optimize the system layouts to take the most advantage of the I/O subsystem.

* Responsible for the administration of existing enterprise databases and the analysis, design, and creation of new databases.
o Data modeling, database optimization, understanding and implementation of schemas, and the ability to interpret and write complex Structured Query Language (SQL) queries
o Proactively monitor systems for optimum performance and capacity constraints
o Establish standards and best practices for SQL
o Interact with and coach developers in SQL scripting

Future Job Description
Arrow Information Technology Consultant





My first choice is I want to be an IT consultant someday. Information technology (IT) consultants work in firms of management consultants, software and systems houses within large manufacturers of computing equipment, or occasionally internally in major industrial companies.
As an Information Technology (IT) consultant, I should analyze IT requirements within companies and objective advice on the use of IT. Furthermore, I also provide specialist support and back-up to professionals within the client companies. Aside from that, I will advise on strategic planning and operational efficiency. I may run facilities for clients, I may design, develop and test new systems, and I can train staff in new systems.
Being an IT consultant, there are skills to be considered. Some of those skills as a key to be a successful IT consultant are:

  • • analytical approach to work
  • • excellent problem-solving skills
  • • interpersonal skills
  • • communication skills
  • • ability to absorb complex technical information and pass this on clearly
  • • stamina to meet deadlines
  • • ability to work under pressure
  • • project-management skills
  • • detailed technical knowledge
  • • Motivation.
Therefore I conclude that the IT consultants are experts in computer technology. They can make anything work it seems. Therefore, they have tons of training and skills.




Arrow Computer Instructor




Computer Instructor is one of my future dream job someday. Computer instructors are responsible for training individuals on the correct and effective use of various computer programs or systems used for business or personal use. This career requires a combination of computer skills plus excellent communication skills and people skills to help those that have little or no computer experience learn how to use the various programs. Most computer instructors offer training on basic programs for business such as work processing, spreadsheets, databases and even some basic graphic design or web page design. Generally classes are offered based on the needs of the clients or students, which may mean having several different levels from basics to advance.
Computer instructors may work from a local school, college or training center or may work from their own computer lab or classroom. Some instructors move from business to business providing in-house classes using the specific equipment that the office or business owns. Meeting with clients and determining exactly what needs to be covered or taught in the computer class is essential for developing the class lessons or outlines. Often this is even more challenging as management may not be aware of exactly how knowledgeable the staff is on a specific technology.
Some computer instructors may also provide written information on how to work with various programs. Usually this written information is provided in conjunction with a class, but may also be used without the use of a formal class. Some computer instructors also offer online classes, especially for internet or web design classes.
Common work activities include:

  • Advertising and marketing computer instruction classes to businesses, schools or individuals that may be potential clients or students.
  • Developing structured lessons to increase the student's ability to use the various programs and computer systems.
  • Meeting with clients and managers to develop a curriculum that meets the needs of the business.
  • Researching, learning and working with the various new programs on the market that be requested in training.
  • Completing follow-up evaluations, getting feedback and modifying programs.
  • Providing some crisis intervention or support help for individuals that have taken the program but are having difficulty with some aspect of the training.
  • Invoicing, billing and collecting from students or businesses for classes taught.

PostSubject: My future Job   Wed Jul 08, 2009 5:44 am

In our world today, from the level of our education you will be able to play an active role in planning and directing your future jobs. In my case, I have a lot of desired careers that I want to achieve for the future. There are a lot of jobs exists today and among those jobs, I choose what job I would like to have in the future. But using our own way of thinking, if you are in a high level of education, you can imagine or think a job that never yet exists. I, as a third year IT student, I can hereby say that I am capable or has the knowledge to develop my own job that haven’t yet exist except on my mind. Speaking of future, all of us have no idea of what our future is, but we can guide or lead our right way from the present to the future by management. Managing our time, actions and the way we does in order to have an idea of what will be our future.

Here are some guidelines on developing you future job:
1. Analyze your current/future lifestyle. Are you happy with your current lifestyle? Do you want to maintain it or change it? Be sure to identify the key characteristics of your ideal lifestyle.
2. Analyze your likes/dislikes. What kinds of job do you like? Think of a job that fit for you.
3. Analyze your passions. Reflect on the times and situations in which you feel most passionate, most energetic, most engaged.
4. Analyze your strengths and weaknesses. Step back and look at yourself from an employer's perspective. What are your strengths? What are your weaknesses? Think in terms of work experience, education/training, skill development, talents and abilities, technical knowledge, and personal characteristics.
5. Analyze your definition of success. Spend some time thinking about how you define success. What is success to you: wealth, power, control, contentment…?
6. Analyze your personality. Are you an extravert or an introvert? Do you like thinking or doing? Do you like routines or change? Do you like sitting behind the desk or being on the move? Take the time to analyze yourself first, and then take one or more of these self-assessment tests.
7. Analyze your dream job. Remember those papers you had to write as a kid about what you wanted to be when you grew up? Take the time to revert back to those idyllic times and brainstorm about your current dream job; be sure not to let any negative thoughts cloud your thinking. Look for ideas internally, but also make the effort to explore/research other careers/occupations that interest you.
8. Analyze your current situation. Before you can even do any planning, clearly and realistically identify your starting point.

http://www.quintcareers.com/career_plan.html

By the guidance of our HRM facilitator, we are tasked or assigned to develop a Job Description for a job we would like to hold. If you just expand your mind about your learning from the day you start learning until today, you can think a future job you would like to be. By looking forward into the future, you should expect that the job you will create is in a high demand. In my side, I expanded my knowledge on how can I create a job for the future that is best and right for me and would help other people. I don’t think if my chosen job that popup in my mind already exist or not, but I know that among those millions of job exists that are IT related I can definitely say that the job description that I will develop is also related to some of those jobs. This is the job that I really want to be in the future and I think that this job fit for me. The job description that I would like to become in the future is… Software Developer!

This is one of my dreams that someday in the future I could develop my very own unique software that would help technological enhancement and can be useful in the future especially to IT world. I choose this kind of job I want to be in the future because I was amazed by different software exists nowadays, and how those things help me and everyone. I choose to become an educated IT person because I want to experience or want to know what is behind in the world of technology that is definitely a parner of our daily lives.

God Bless!
